    Here are our sources: It is very fascinating to see that the both extremes, vegans and people on meat heavy diets hate this video. Usually we are attacked more from one direction - in this cases both ends of the spectrums are really upset. Anything relating to nutrition is very controversial unfortunately. Someone on twitter posted this: There is research showing strong links between dietary choices and social identity:

    So if you want to, you can find sources telling you that every kind of diet is bad for you. We tried very hard not to do that and get a real understanding what the health effects of meat are. We also did not have a particular bias, we have vegetarians, flexitarians and meat eaters in the team. And in general, since our first meat video many of us have reduced their meat consumption or at least try to. Others in the team have not changed at all and don't plan to. We don't have an overarching agenda here, one way or the other. There is a video about milk in the making right now and we also just started a video about veganism. Look forward to more diet related videos next year.

      Meat, meat, meat and meat. What kind? Red. But which red meat? All I saw represented was cattle (or chicken when not red and very little of fish or pork).
      The numbers show that buffalo/bison is the healthiest red meat available today. Healthier even than pork or chicken.
      As far as people perceiving cattle as negative impact on the ecology, holistic heard management has not only proven to be carbon negative, it also has shown to reverse desertification.

    Don't think you did your homework on the Inuit. Sure they thrive on a diet of just meat but they die nasty deaths from a lifetime of accumulated crap in their vascular systems. Like our ancient ancestors they just have more babies so the race continues while individuals die off from the diet. Pop! Woops! There goes Gramps! Hey Granny you're on your own now. Granny ... Pop!

    I recently-ish learned that people lose a tone of weight on low-carb diets instead of low-fat diets, because fat doesn't make you fat, sugar does.
    I also recently learned that the food pyramid itself has been lying to us our whole lives. Wheat products and starchy vegetables (like potatoes) break down to sugar in the body. So Americans are fat because our government and authorities have been telling us that unhealthy food is healthy and healthy food is unhealthy for decades.

      @Alberto Marconi Plenty of evidence for over 20 years. In fact, there is much more thorough, blind, correct studies than the old science that was forced on the public. There is no way on earth you can back old science up with the horrible dietary epidemics plaguing us. If you do, then you are a fool or a shill.

    • Alberto Marconi
      Alberto Marconi Πριν 17 ώρες

      @Justin Lorenzana there is no evidence of what you have said. The low carb diet is a theory, a model, but scientific literature hasn't accepted it yet, becuase some aspects aren't clear, and some scientist criticize this theory. We need more experiments and facts. For now, it's just a model. Try, and maybe it could benefits you, but when it comes to say what diet is the best ever, I think we need to wait and calm down.

    • TheAzynder

      @Alberto Marconi Yeah, most people who were on occasion on low carb, the ones I know, I got the picture that they mostly just stuffing their face with bacon and ham with butter.
      I still eat carbs, just in form of berries, fruit and some vegetables, I just cut out bread, rice, pasta and potato.
      It's too easy to overdo it with those.

      Recent numerous studies weigh the risks of diet. Although nothing is 💯 healthy. The low carb or even keto diet is by miles the best for health, for mind, satiaty, and lower risks to disease and earlier death.

      @TheAzynder yeah it's pretty good! We can agree that a balance diet, where you try to cut carbos or fats, is ok, but the diet must be balanced.

    Let's not generalize anything here. Diet works differently for different people. And it's best if you stick to the diet that you are accustomed to. I stopped eating meat bcoz of digestive issues and I do perfectly well with a vegetarian (not vegan) diet. One thing I am concerned about is the impact of animal farming and it's effect on climate. But scientists are working on lab-grown meat to tackle it.
