I swear, diet stuff has to be the biggest head fuck to go through, soooo many biases. I'm somewhat of a vegan, and by following such a "radical" diet one gets to see all the delights of peoples stupidity with the matter. One guy told me that vegetarians live less, and he and all their mates were patronizing me ever since, his source, MSN news feeder -_- I than told him I've read many times that vegetarians actually live longer(to be fair I'm not implying eating meat is unhealthy, more so that vegetarians tend to be more health conscience, they have to be or else they become very sick, so they generally have less processed junk in their diets + I think, at least in a heavy meat eating society such as Australia, that the average person eats way too much meat for it to be healthy, going by how our ancestors lived and some stuff I've read, but seriously what can anyone trust in this stuff? On one side there's the meat lovers who don't want to feel like an a-hole so they come up with bs justifications, seriously prefer if they just admitted they like their meat butwhatever, and than on the other side there's bleeding heart vegetarians who have motives to lie to convert people to their cause, ugh)
I also have a suspicion that how people view this stuff is horribly flawed, by breaking it down to the foods largest fundamentals i.e protein fibre fats. The body consumes these in regards to how they've been taken in with, like with vitamin tablets not being so effective without it with everything else and people not being able to use most of the calcium in cows milk because of it being too low(high?) in I think it's phosphorous, and it's missing out on so much of the smaller stuff.
My plan for this:
eat whole foods and little processed foods. Probably gonna try to eat less grains and more vegetables, only found out the other day that the pasta I've been buying is white flour, ugh whatever, gonna stick with the fruit because I see no reason not to, their good for energy/nutrients and our ancestors ate lots of them
