The Paleo Diet versus the Vegan diet and Vegetarians:
As you may have noticed, I do not “promote” any specific diet on this website. I post science-based nutrition, cover all the diet-types, and try to keep a neutral stance whenever possible. I believe that every body is different, every mind is different, and every person has their own needs and limitations. (Especially since the mind plays and even larger role in how our body reacts than just the chemistry from food.)
That being said, I am pretty sick of being bombarded by proponents of the Paleo Diet. Since I work in the fitness world, I get to hear about it day in and day out. I also get randomly accused of being “unhealthy” because of my compassionate stance towards animals, just because someone sees what I’m eating for lunch.
I don’t like to push my personal dietary choices on other people, but I got to say, I’m pretty sick of everyone pushing there’s on me. So, I decided to talk about the Paleo diet from a anthropology perspective. And I wanted to show some awesome vegetarian and vegan athletes. So enjoy, and let me know what experiences you have had!
