- Pudgy, overweight, fat, or obese body types (after the age of 25)
- Base their diet on fries, donuts, white bread & pastas, candy, junk food and, of course, meat as the other half of their meal.
- "Aged" skin: enlarged pores, dehydrated skin from a diet of alcohol on weekends, breathing second-hand smoke at bars and picking up McDonalds and Burger King meals several times a week (they wont set any health boundary for themselves).
- Might have muscle mass, but it is hidden underneat their fat.
- Have some of the worst cases of cystic acne (they really dont care what they're eating) (the opposite of being too picky).
- After 50, 60% have some form of colon cancer from overeating processed meat
- 80% tend to die from preventable diseases such as heart disease or Type II diabetes
- Claim they've never had a salad OR only eat salad or veggies on special occasions.
- Best of all: Stereotype themselves by their own ignorance: Insist that without meat, they will die of malnutrition within a few months or live sickly lives.
Overall, I think meat-eaters are lazy and really need to do some research. Case closed.
Most of the things you mentioned have nothing to do with meat-eating, eating meat is different than the american stereotype. I do agree that alot of people in America are like that, but that has nothing to do with eating meat. I think that vegetarians are either highly hypocritical or dangerously ignorant. Highly hypocritical if they don't eat meat, and think that they are helping the environment or animals, or think that they are much healthier because of their avoidance of eating meat. Dangerously ignorant if they don't know that their grain eating promotes more farmers to farm grains which cause numerous environmental problems (won't go into on this board, there is way too much to explain, read Omnivore's Dilemma if you want to learn about it), and also ignorant to the fact that animals need predators, and other things that are explained above. I dont feel like re-explaining.
There really is not much reason to be a vegan or vegetarian, maybe if you have some unique gastrointestinal problems or some other medical reason, even then in most cases it probably is not so much the meat causing your problems, but the other things that you are eating.
According to Loren Cordain, he has had many people with IBS send him letters saying that they cured their's with the Paleo Diet. So it may not be the meat, but something else. I am not saying that there are not medical conditions where meat is bad, just that for most of them, meat is not the problem.
