    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we all have free will to live our lives the way we want. However, I have to say, it makes me sad to see so many obese people in the US, who have all sorts of health problems and are taking tons of medication, which profits certain industries who don't care about getting to the root of the problem but only treating the symptoms. Also, if it's true that the epidemic of obesity affects everyone's healthcare costs, then I don't think it's something that should be promoted. I'm not sure why anyone would argue with that. I believe that all people are equally valuable. But obesity is a big problem and since it can lead to many health problems, it's not something that society should treat as normal / healthy, imo.

    I posted 4 studies (in addition to the video that went over 9 different studies) so I don't know which one you're talking about. But it was probably about red meat, so I'm not sure why you felt the need to mention that it defended dairy and fish. If anything, that shows that it wasn't a biased study conducted by vegans. Anyway, we'll have to agree to disagree. I don't feel like going on and on with this debate. The Keto thing will die out eventually, because it's not sustainable (unless it's vegan Keto, which is a thing) and the long-term effects are not going to be pretty… Not unless one is eating a lot of plant-based foods with it, instead of primarily animal products. And the future is vegan. :) It's growing like crazy, plus it is prophesied.

    I posted studies, I wasn't the one who said "My roommate did this or that" or "My brother did this or that…" So I'm not sure what you're talking about unless you're referring to my statement that there are millions of vegans who are not fat? First of all, that was in response to his anecdote. You're twisting things around. Secondly, there are plenty of studies that back that up, so that's not exactly an anecdote, and what is dishonest is to falsely accuse me. And yes, I know that fats can include vegetarian sources. That doesn't change anything I said earlier, because I was talking specifically about animal fats and animal products, and there are tons of studies that back that up. It's just that keto cheerleaders like him choose to believe studies that promote keto....And it is a well-known fact that anything that promotes meat and dairy is almost always funded by the meat and dairy industries.

    Again, your anecdotes don't apply to millions of others. Like I told you, check back with me in 20 years when you have cardiovascular disease or atherosclerosis from years of eating lots of greasy fat and lard and far too many corpses and not enough healthy God-given foods like veggies, fruits, legumes, etc. We're going to have to agree to disagree. Plant-based is far healthier than eating death… and we haven't talked about the numerous other reasons why it's better. For me, the health aspect was not even my reason for going plant-based, it was just an added bonus.

    There are tons of vegans on a high carb diet who are either thin, normal weight or athletic… but not fat. It's silly to take your one example of your roommate and apply that to everyone. Of course common sense dictates that it's best to have a variety of healthy plant-based foods (as opposed to just one thing). But this anti-carb nonsense that is popular because of the trendiness of keto is downright dumb.

    If she was a vegetarian (as opposed to vegan) then it was probably the dairy that kept her overweight. Either that or junk food, but certainly not healthy, plant-based whole foods.

    So you were personally involved in each of those studies? Don't make me laugh. It looks like you didn't even read them. You are by far the biggest cheerleader for the keto trend out of anyone I have ever encountered in my life. You're free to eat what you want, but the reality that you don't want to accept is that keto is horrible in the long run. It may give you short-term results, but get back to me 20 years from now, when your clogged arteries cause you to have a heart attack or stroke. As for diabetes, like I said to HB, nobody claimed it directly caused diabetes, but that it increased the risk. Deny, deny, deny all you want, but you'll see eventually. Mark my words. No need to eat corpses or the pus-filled secretions of exploited animals.

    Simply stating that doesn't make it true. Inflammation is a factor in insulin resistance (even Paleo doctors will tell you that) and inflammation is linked to acidic foods. So yes, acidity is indeed a factor when it comes to insulin resistance. At least with type 2 diabetes. As for fruit, many people assume that certain fruits are acidic (simply because they are sour / citrusy) when in fact they are actually the opposite. As you can see from this excerpt below: "A diet rich in animal protein may favor net acid intake, while most fruits and vegetables form alkaline precursors that neutralize the acidity," wrote Dr. Guy Fagherazzi and Dr. Francoise Clavel-Chapelon, of the Center for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health at INSERM, in Paris. "Contrary to what is generally believed, most fruits -- such as peaches, apples, pears, bananas and even lemons and oranges -- actually reduce dietary acid load once the body has processed them.” Although some fruits are more acidic than others, it is silly and wrong to demonize a God-given food while at the same time ignoring that the foods well known to be acidic are animal products, such as meat and dairy.

    lol. Your scenario has nothing to do with the studies. I will take the word of numerous doctors and researchers who have conducted long-term studies, over the word of a guy on the Internet who is clearly the biggest fan of Keto to ever walk the face of the earth. :p

    Another one for you. This was a study done in China. https://www.pcrm.org/health/medNews/diabetes-risk-increases-with-meat-intake Meat consumption is associated with risk for developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Researchers followed the diets and disease risk of 63,257 participants from the Singapore Chinese Health Study and found that those who consumed the most red meat (e.g., pork, beef, lamb), poultry, and fish had an increased risk for type 2 diabetes by 23, 15, and 7 percent, respectively, compared with those who consumed the least. In a separate analysis, the authors found that as heme iron increased, so did the risk for diabetes. Other studies have published similar findings, including the Adventist Health Study-2, which showed that as more animal products, such as red meat and fish, are included in the diet, increase for diabetes risk follows. https://academic.oup.com/aje/article/186/7/824/3848997

    That wasn't the claim. At least from what I heard. The claim was that there was an increased risk of diabetes, as the level of animal products increases. And I've heard that before, from a number of sources. Here is a study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3942738/ "Meat consumption is consistently associated with diabetes risk." Here's something else to look at: https://www.webmd.com/diabetes/news/20131112/meat-products-could-raise-diabetes-risk-study#1 And this: http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/04/15/too-much-animal-protein-linked-to-increased-diabetes-risk.html An excerpt:

    This is interesting. From an article on lewrockwell.com: Also, troubling is the fact that the STAR tabloid that first hyped and then allegedly conducted, the flawed "test" was owned by Robert Altman – a close friend, a college classmate, political supporter, major donor and federal appointee of Bill Clinton. The Editor later admitted that no sample of DNA was ever obtained from Bill Clinton and that the incomplete DNA test included in the Starr Report had been used to compare with a sample obtained by Danney Williams. The Editor Phil Bunton would also later admit he had not seen written test results.

    I don't buy that. Even Snopes – a liberal, Clinton supporting source – gave it a verdict of 'unproven.' A remainder of doubt There were a couple of issues with the reliability of the paternity test, however. One was its origin: the tabloids. Despite running with the story, Time‘s only source for the Clinton paternity results was Star magazine (indeed, The Clintons’ War on Women co-author and former Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone claims there is no evidence the test was ever conducted). The other was a 1999 piece published in Slate arguing that because it was based on the limited analysis provided in the Starr Report and not a new DNA sample, the test results were inconclusive: The FBI performed two genetic fingerprinting tests on the president’s DNA. The Starr report, for unexplained reasons, gives data only for the less specific of the two tests. In fact, this test is imprecise enough that it would probably not be persuasive to a judge. Dr. George Riley of Genelex–a well-regarded forensic DNA lab–calculates that the genetic fingerprint given in the Starr report will most likely yield a so-called “paternity index” of only 20 to 30. In other words, a positive test would mean that President Clinton is only 20 to 30 times more likely than a random Caucasian male to be Danny Williams’ father. This would be suggestive but not conclusive. (50,000 white men in Arkansas would get the same test results.) The legal threshold is 100. At best the genetic fingerprint contained in the Starr report can only yield a paternity index of 120. The actual value depends on the mother’s DNA. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/bill-clinton-illegitimate-son/

    Maybe it has something to do with their spiritual beliefs? Leftists tend to be more secular and godless… which means no true hope, and nothing beyond this life. So maybe when they're in a deep depression, suicide seems like a good solution, at that time. When in fact, the exact opposite is true.
