Raw meat sounds so scary to eat, what if you only eat raw egg yolks in this diet....?
Perfectly fine. Lots of people on this diet only eat them as animal food. They are probably the most nutritious food btw.
So you don't think vegetables are healthy at all? And you mostly eat olive oil and avacado right? This diet is really confusing but so many people are clear from it. I want to do it too but are there bad longterm affects? Like, do you know anybody who has been doing this diet for a long time, or a civilization that lives with this diet?
Veggies are imo less harmful than cooked foods, diary and spices, but they are still bad, and absolutely dispensable. Just read the link I just posted here about it.
I don't eat mostly avocado and olive oil. I can rarely get good quality avocados, in fact. Olive oil, I eat like 60g a day.
This diet is confusing yeah, because it's a breakthrough paradigm. Lots of people are clear from it, because it works
Longterm effects? I guess there are none. Only if you eat spoiled food, day, after day, after day... This can lead to auto-immune diseases. But this can happen on a normal diet too (ham, cheese, and other processed foods tend to get loaded of bacteria and molds I guess). You just gotta make sure you always eat very fresh food. On fruits this is easy to notice (as long as their aren't visibly damaged, they are 100% fresh), but on animal food might be a little harder. You gotta buy safe fish species (all that are used in sashimi), get your fish from a reliable seller, check freshness (eye, gilles, etc)... For eggs, just do the bowel test and buy organic/free-range.
As long as you be this minimally careful, the risk is none, imo.
The creator of this diet has been on it for 15 years I guess. No side effects at all. Some other people in the forum have been on it for 5-10years.
Civilization on this diet... well, almost: all humans that lived before agriculture and civilization! The only difference is that they ate vegetables because food was always scarce, so they had to eat what they could find, in order to survive. But if they had abundance, I think they'd definitely focus on fruits. And they didn't eat oils, because they hadn't invented machines that could make lots of pressure and extract the oil, and Wai Dieters eat, since this process is completely harmless to the food's molecules (so is juicing fruit, drying fruit, etc).
sorry for all the questions.
Np. I'm here to answer them!
