There has been a huge buzz lately about the merits of a vegetarian, vegan, or plant-based diet being beneficial to one’s overall health, treating illness and disease, and improving athletic performance.
What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you disagree, perhaps vehemently? Why or why not? Is a Plant-Based Diet™ detrimental to one’s health?
Do you currently engage in a vegetarian, plant-based, or vegan diet? Why? Has it helped or hindered you? Do you do it for personal, health, or “moral” reasons? Which of these do you think are superior?
Are you on Keto, Paleo, or Carnivore, and absolutely hate a plant-based diet? Do you have Facts and Logic™ as to why going plant-based is a bad idea? Can you back up your F&L with sources, relevant research, and citations?
For the purpose of this discussion:
Vegetarian – They don’t eat meat. They consume eggs, dairy, and meat based broths from what I understand.
Vegan – Moral crusaders that are 400lbs and diabetic from all the cashew ice cream, oreos, and Dr. Pepper they’ve been drinking
Plant-Based – No animal based products.
Some of the above have a “raw” variant, that removes grains such as rice and oats, as well as not cooking anything above 165 degrees fahrenheit.
