Most people don't understand no one else really gives a fark about what they eat or don't eat. People who won't shut up with "OMG I eat yummy yummy meat all day long kill all dem animals LOL I'm so hardcore and sassy y'all can't handle me!" are just as annoying as preachy ass vegans.


We meat eaters only do that when the vegans won't shut the hell up. Normally, we don't bother telling anyone what we're eating unless it's something extra special.

May, August, and October I did a juice fast for 30 days each.  Veggie and Fruit juices that I make at home.  I lost 100 pounds by the end of the last fast.  The intake of micronutrients was more in one day, than I could have consumed in a week of chewing all that plant matter.   Example recipe: JUICE 4 Tomatoes, 1 Cucumber, 2 Zucchini, 3 Carrots, 2 celery, hand full of Kale, some basil leaves, Oregano, ginger, Garlic, 1 apple, 1/2 jalapeno, some spinach leaves, and a bell pepper.  Salt and pepper to taste.  I carried 72 ounces of juice with me all day, sipped it all day.  Was never hungry.  Now, I could never chew at that plant matter in a day.  No way.  But drinking was great.  Before the fast: 261 pounds, borderline diabetic, borderline hypertension, just entering the high blood pressure range, and the cholesterol was about to go bad.  After the second fast, all levels way in the normal ranges.  All of them, after 4 months.
It reset something in me.
No more sugar cravings.
Skin started glowing.
A couple old aches stopped.
And this chronic hives on my arms and legs vanished after 3 years.
Can't stand the smell of fried food.
Very aware of my intake.
A lot less meat.  Using at a flavor/texture in a meal, and not the main star.
Lost interest in snacking.
I don't think of food all day long.
I loved to cook before.  Now I'm a better cook.
The switch to a juiced vegan routine changed my life.  I juice very regularly, and my meals are mainly plant matter now.

As an experiment in grad school, I ate as a vegetarian for 6 weeks jsut to see what the fuss was about. The first 7-10 days were hell for my bowels & stomach's "routines".

Then things settled down and I felt just as miserable as before.

An anecdote is not data, but I think the link between diet and mood is tenuous at best from my personal experience.

vodka: This all goes back to the original tribes you came from . Everyone is different although I imagine there are significant portions are the population that came from similar tribes.
If you came from a meat-heavy tribe then that diet is healthier. The same goes for vegetable, grain heavy, or some tribes had a nice balance.
Evolution baby, how does it work?


Not like that.

Seriously, whoever thought that up is a crackpot.

I've found that well timed drug abuse is the key to happiness, YMMV.
