One thing which puzzles me about LCHF and DietDoctor.com. LCHF is supposed to be what our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate. They must have had a strenuous time hunting and gathering, climbing trees and running from wild animals. He was not an agriculturist. However, what prevented him from gathering fruits, which would have been plenty and delicious. He would have seen birds and animals feasting on them and would have understood that they were edible. So why no fruits?
In my understanding, fruit would have been the first option for the ancient man, even before he learned to hunt.
I accept that omitting all starches can take us off medication for diabetes. But the rationale is that the LCHF diet helps us go around a problem, not overcome it. It is the rational step, not a correction of an error. It is possibly the best solution for those who can manage LCHF. I can reduce carbs, but I cannot eliminate these.
This is Advent and we are supposed to go Vegan. How to manage LCHF? I may find Avocado at some high end shop. I cannot subsist on peanuts and butter. I cannot afford Avocado every day with my pension. Moreover, it is a foreign fruit, I need things from my environment.
In the West, where meat or fish is a main dish, LCHF may seem the natural diet. In India, where people are mostly vegetarians using just milk and not even eggs, the existence of meat eating ancestry for the entire populace is difficult to believe.
As Eckhart Tolle advised, we must eat mindfully, aware of what we are putting into our bodies.
Then fast food, meats and even fish are difficult choices.
I was just thinking.
