Where do you suppose I just dropped this comment?
Well what the hell.
I think it’s a damn fine, honest critique. It is what it is. I call ’em how I see ’em and I enjoyed the post and think it’s a worthy read by anyone. I myself have had a bit of an eye opening experience these last six weeks where most of my intake comes from raw milk & homemade kefir from same, along with some fresh raw OJ and Kombucha—bits of meat and mostly fermented veggies elsewhere. I feel great, and body composition is changing radically without even much time spent in the gym (av. less than an hour per MONTH).
Alright, M, make the most of it, pass it around if you like, kick it up on PD. But it’s simply the truth that I see it as an important, valuable post no matter what else I think elsewhere.
Right here. Go read. It’s a far different Dear John letter than that one a few years back “Farewell to paleo” you may remember.
One thing I will never engage in is a lie to myself where just because I have a dispute with someone or basically hate their guts, then suddenly something that’s good and valuable becomes bad and destructive. Nope, can’t do it. And of course, I have no obligation to promote it, either, but then I would be betraying my own stated motivation, which is to pass along what I deem valuable to you all.
By all means, read it, take it as a message that you have to figure out what’s best for you individually, even if that means you’re “not really paleo.”
