Healthy eating isn’t just about avoiding meat but having a balanced diet.

Humans evolved as meat eaters. That's a fact. Get over it. Agriculture is only 10,000 years old. You wouldn't be a homo sapien without meat.

 

They were evolved omnivores, Some meat, with vegetables, grains, fruits, leguns,fish. A varied diet to provide all the necessary nutrients.

In moderation and the meat they ate  lived in it's natural habitat, feed on natural to the spices food, and was not loaded with antibiotics and growth hormones.

A human can live on meat without much in the way of vege.

And live a good healthy life.

A vegetarian cannot live solely on vege.

I am not talking about water, milk or fruit etc.

We all need those things.

I am almost meat free myself, but I do eat boiled chicken from time to time. What is very important if you go vegetarian is to eat plenty of beans and lentils, because of the high amount of protein. Especially kidney beans contains a lot of it. 

Avoid beans and lentils like the plague. They will slowly kill you. They contain lectins which can cause leaky gut syndrome. Eat meat. It's the most healthy and nutrient dense food you can eat. Avoid carbs and sugar.

Only if you ate them raw .most Lectins are destroyed in the cooking. 

I agree about the carbs and sugar , but there is a big difference between simple and complex carbs.

Even a high temperature pressure cooker won't completely destroy lectins.

That's why I said "mostly" ,

the nutritional benefits outweigh the small amount of remailing Lectins, according to most nutritional experts.

Don't need milk and fruit. We are not designed to drink cows milk and fruit is just a whole lot of sugar. calcium and vit C are available in good quality vitamin pills.

That's good to know. Where did our ancestors buy their vitamin pills, from the Fred Flintstone pharmacy?

They suffered terribly with lactose intolerance but they were also hunters and gatherers so they were burning massive amounts of calories and the sugar burst from fruit helped a lot.

 

Now lets talk about fat arsed farang eating 3 bananas and on the PC all day and then a glass of milk and then nice little nap eh??

Who wrote about Australian beef being the best?

New Zealand beef is better.
It might be that I am a little biased seeing I am from NZ.

What is this crap? There's literally NO connection between unprocessed meat and health issues - the only health issues studies find are from processed meat. Dairy however is linked to cancer, and nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant) mess up your gut. Some legumes are bad for you too.

 

Wish beef was cheaper and more readily available in Thailand... I miss a good steak.

There's nothing wrong with a moderate amount of fruit and the sugar from it doesn't give you the same kind of insulin spike as eating a Mars bar because of the way fructose is absorbed. The main issue is that we don't eat fruit seasonally anymore. You can eat fruits at anytime of the year because it's shipped all over the world. Our ancestors didn't do that. They only ate the fruit that was available locally and at a particular time of the year so there was more balance. Their digestive systems adapted over a long period of time. The amazing thing about the human digestive system is that it can adapt to a lot of different environments so you can eat a diet more rich in vegetables and fruits near the equator but you can equally survive quite happily on meat, fish and seal fat in the arctic region. Most animals survive on a very specialised and restricted diet without much variation. The human gut is very flexible and that's why we are what we are today.
