I knew it! So, that must mean that Dave really is Superman.
Fortunately, Dave's last name is unpronouncable to assassins, so we're good there.
Oh gawsh, that is true. Hehehe, that actually made me laugh out loud. I must have looked retarded sitting here in class laughing at my computer screen. Thank god it's loud in here, I don't think anybody heard me.
that happens to me at work a lot. my colleagues have long stopped caring.
The best way to eat is actually the Paleo Diet. But it's really hard to maintain. I've been a vegetarian, I've even been a raw foodist, I've tried the paleo diet (which makes you feel amazing), and now I'm eating along the lines of what Micheal Pollan advises, which is "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants" and to eat as wide of a variety of food as possible and try to eat different cultures cuisines as much as possible because there is a lot of wisdom in some of the more established diets (French, meditaranean, japanese, thai, etc.) I also do intermittent fasting.

we do start adepting, if we start eating meat, its only natural, because back in the days, the ones that couldnt cope with it, simply died, and the ones that could, are our ancestors. natural selection.
but it doesnt eman that our bodies are now fit to eat meat. if wed eat raw meat from now on, like our ancestors, wed have a natural selection all over again.
btw i do eat meat once or twice a week. and eggs and cheese.
Hey Skyylark, I asked you this in the snoutbox but I don't think you saw it. Did you used to post on the Bolt/Bolt2 cows board?
Also, check out this forum. I've gotten a ton of good recipes from this site. Good stuff. If you eat dairy and whatnot, you can still use mostly the same ingredients.
Lately I've been eating a lot of vegan Mexican food personally.
Actually no I didn't used to post on that board. And that forum is really helpful, thanks! ^.^
We *are* actual meat eaters, just not strictly carnivorous. We are omnivores. Our digestive system is probably the most amazing evolutionary adaptation out of all the mammals, starting from our teeth all the way down through the digestive tract. Our teeth for example are omnicompetent, expertly designed to grind down nuts and plants while simultaneously being able to tear and chew meats. Our digestive system might not be the same as a tiger for meat digestion, but it's still designed to digest meats very, very efficiently.and still our digestive system is about 4 times slower than that of actual meat eaters.
This is true. It enabled us to survive long, cold winters when plant foods just weren't an option. People seem to forget that our ancestors weren't creating crops and tending gardens, all the plants that we ate were wild and not always available year round.we do start adepting, if we start eating meat, its only natural, because back in the days, the ones that couldnt cope with it, simply died, and the ones that could, are our ancestors. natural selection.
It does. Our bodies are fit to eat meat and have been for tens of thousands of years. Hundreds of thousands actually.but it doesnt eman that our bodies are now fit to eat meat.
The selection is already done. It's already part of our DNA. We can eat raw meat, the thought is disgusting but we can do it. Hell we eat it every time we eat sushi.if wed eat raw meat from now on, like our ancestors, wed have a natural selection all over again.
Cheese and dairy is another adaption that helped humans obtain more calories out of a cow. Remember at one point all humans were lactose intolerant.btw i do eat meat once or twice a week. and eggs and cheese.
You're a flexitarian, which is a really good way to eat.
for sure, the adeptation to meat is pretty recent, we dont even have claws to chase animals. we used tools for that.
thats really not very long, on an evolutionairy scale. not long enough for actual mutation, just for teh selection part, mostly.

well monkeys eat termites. we probebly ate insects as well, and eggs. even plant eaters in nature need some of that, and plants have lots of insects on them. a pool has tiny aminals in it, they are everywhere. its different from eating animals you must hunt, and who are a big part of a diet.Cheese and dairy is another adaption that helped humans obtain more calories out of a cow.

Yeah the process for adapting to meat was likely a very long one. They suspect it probably started off with eating insects, then small animals that we could catch, eggs when available, leftovers from other kills, all while our hunting abilities were improving until we were better able to hunt bigger animals, seafood, etc.
BTW many insects are usually a really good source of protein and other nutrients. Also btw, today we probably eat way too many eggs. It really should be considered more of a delicacy than an almost every day thing for a lot of people.
we are omnivores technically...
but oki's right too, hunting and eating big mammals is a relatively late adaptation...
and our digestive system is more suited for eating like... small insects/nuts
we started as foragers... and were forced by necessity of survival to start eating more meat as the forest retreated and we evolved to go into the savanna and walk upright and all that... Eating big meat is a later adaption, the basis of our digestive system is definitely still herbivorism, with some omnivorism in it, we were after all, the smartest among the apes...
Eating meat nowadays isn't smart. AT ALL.
