Eat whatever you want, it's fine, just don't practice your ideology on me. If you want to avoid toxins and minimize your carbon footprint - kill yourself Big Grin

 @Allaboutthehardtails: it is hard not to mention you are a vegan since there is almost no vegan food to be found in restaurants in the West. It is hard enough with vegetarian food. If you came to some diner in smaller town in Poland, even 10 years ago, and asked for vegetarian meal, they'd look at you as if you asked for butt sex. If you'd ask for vegan you'd leave with a pitchfork in your back. I live in Sweden, one of the most green-leftist hippie nations on the surface of the Earth, and even here the lunch menu with 4 choices features only 1 veggie meal. I'll blow the whistle, the moment it's the other way around.

Now, where's my bacon!

 @Allaboutthehardtails: Never heard a vegan mention that. Or it was a typo (which could essentially turn your post into anything, but let's assume the most probable), then how did you find out everyone who hasn't mentioned being vegan to not be vegan. Do all those mention not being vegan (like waki)?

 @vinay: I like the logic you presented in your last sentence. I mean I do, no sarcasm here. It works really good with proclaimed atheists. Why people who don't play water polo don't call themselves non-water-poloists. I am a self proclaimed a-veganist! But I ain't Humus-eater Hunter either. I think that some people's negativity towards vegans comes from traumatic experience where their mother was telling them, "you ain't leaving the table until you eat your Broccoli". But mooom, G.I.Joe starts just right now on Cartoo... "- Eat your broccoli!!!" In the background father takes his belt off

@megatryn - and you got negpropped for that hahahaha Big Grin

 @WAKIdesigns: It depends on what's the norm in your area I guess. People who play water polo are a minority probably everywhere so it may be reasonably safe to assume a random person is not into water polo. It may be very different with activities like soccer and riding bicycles (in general). It depends a lot on where you are in the world. Then again safest is to not assume anything. As they say in engineering, assumption is the mother of all f*ck ups.
  • 4 3
 @vinay: assuming and putting things and people into categories is a human thing, you look for patterns and it is the mechanism that makes you an extremely successful creature. Confronting your assumption with the real world is another thing and is more than welcome to exercise Wink This what we do here, although it could be nice to use google and check sht before calling someone an idiot. Finaly we come to things which cannot be argued, like: 29ers are gay. I am personally fine with that statement since I can perfectly understand that someone may feel so and a decent person who shares the opposite point of view should be self-secure enough able to take critique of such class with no problem. I personally, openly say that for me homophobia is gay, just like most forms of seeking exemplary manhood or purity of belief/race, through good and bad example. Specimens of minorities, be it Vegans or fatbike riders should be smart enough to defend themselves. Like me, don't you find it ironic that whener some new big thing come out, the owners of older bikes start calling potential buyers of new stuff "sheep", while it is them 26forLife crowd doing what everyone else has been doing for years, in a quite uniform way. So why does majowrity call sheep the ones who are leaving the pack for a new thing?

 @WAKIdesigns:@WAKIdesigns: Waki- As a card carrying Vegan hater.I should chime in. Vegans are hated by most everyone I have ever met. They always (at least in the US) come with a vitriolic rant just under the surface of every conversation. Unless of course they are only surrounded by like minded idiots. Any social interaction with a Vegan must be avoided at ALL costs.
I really haven't figured out why all the Vegetarian/Vegan restaurants in Berkeley haven't been fire bombed yet. Somebody needs to get on that.

 @lenmerderdenfer: @lenmerderdenfer: No the question still has to be why are you vegan. A vegan is the one who is stepping outside of our species natural diet. Humans evolved eating meat (and plants) over 100's of thousands of years.

What we have today is people who choose not to eat meat for reasons such as love of animals and a smaller environmental footprint. Valid reasons, I give you that but being vegan does not automatically make anyone healthier.

Their is a problem with our food supply though, and it is probably most troubling in the meat industry. Biggest problem western society has is pre packaged junk though.

 @lenmerderdenfer: Dude, is there a sardinespiracy, organic self raised chickenspiracy, eggspiracy? You can not deny that we have evolved to eat meat (and even consume dairy although some people still have digestion issues).

A vegan can be unhealthy (french fries are vegan dude), just as someone someone who eats meat can be unhealthy. Or both healthy. The fact whether you eat meat or not will not dictate your overall health.

The argument not to eat meat is strong. In fact the world could be a better place if no one eat meat, if just for the environmental impact alone. But the world is complex and can people be expected to do what is best for the environment in every situation.....ha we are so very far from that scenario its ridiculous.

I'm just saying being vegan does not necessarily make someone healthier than someone who chooses to eat meat. Vegans/veggies like to think it does, because generally it that is the case but the problem I the tainted meat and processing. And even fruits and vegtables get questionable treatment (pesticides, herbicides, genetic tempering).

If people made an attempt to eat healthier meat, less processed food and more fruit, veg, nuts, seeds etc that would go a long way in making western societies healthier.

 @lenmerderdenfer: I have zero moral issue with killing an animal for food. I think it should be done humanely, but animals raised for food would not even exist if it wasn't for the purpose of food. Animals killed from hunting, well that is just what humans have done for thousands and thousands of years.

People like to treat their dogs and even cats better than their neighbor down the street. A fellow human will always trump any other species, period in my mind.

If I would ever go veggie/vegan it would be for purely environmental reasons. In fact I would become one if I didnt love the taste of meat so much.

 While I have nothing against vegans because that is an idiotic thing to do, and I think industrial production of meat, milk and diary is fkd up, I don't agree that all lives matter. Where does one draw a line between bacteria and a cow? Stepping on an ant or driving over a dog? Does it come down to the level of development of life forms consciousness, thus ability to feel pain and happyness? If you met a bunch of chimps in their natural habitat, you'd wish you'd be rather standing over mass grave with execution squad behind you. Those chimps would rip you apart and eat you alive. Say hello to a Polar bear, an animal that would chase your boat for miles for only one reason. To kill you and eat you. We are delusional due to living with farm animals and house pets like dogs, animals made to be friendly by nothing more but a man made evolution. Nature does not give a tiniest fk about your attitude towards it. We developed into what we are to protect ourselves against it. It has never been in balance, the balance in nature is an ideological delusion. There is even no such thing as ecosystem. Now we give lives by breeding all sorts of animals and grow vegetables. It is Earth 5 or 11.0 and we are the shaping force like volcanoes, tides or asteroids. It just is this way. It is a shame that by average we eat so much meet, while we need quite little. People who think that we evolved to eat meat are delusional. You are seeing this on that internet thing only because of agriculture and ability of human species to settle down. A romantic vision of hunters and gatherers are as valid as visions of those who say that meat is unnecessary. There is no one vision for humanity, you have to make the best use of what you get and understand that surplus is fkng up your own life.

 @lenmerderdenfer: I could not give a tiniest damn. I am here watching this "Life on Earth" show unfold in front of my eyes. It will be over in a matter of 3 hours (not sure If someone can kill me earlier) and max 50 more years. All I can tell you is to be careful with telling other people what they should eat, because what works for you may not work for them. There was a program about people with eating disorder where one slim looking woman was eating only snacks for 7 years. She looked more than normal but was mentally sick, she was affraid of eating any form of food that looked like plants or pieces of animals. On another hand I don't give a tiniest damn either, natural selection is a wonderful thing. No other humans will ever be able to listen to me as much as my kids, and we all know how much we care about what our parents had to say to us. At least I never gave much sht. So why should I care to tell you how you should live your life? Environment, you bring an interesting subject. Future of the planet? I wish I could watch Andromeda galaxy getting closer to Milky way, that would be beatiful. And how long would you like your gene legacy to survive? The most fundamental law of nature: Entropy, works against the best of our intentions. So when do we decide to pull the plug? Isn't it cowardly to try to stay alive as long as you can to die a sure death in bed? Make your family take care of you, change your diapers, instead of enjoying their life? What are you trying to save my friend? Perhaps not having kids at all is the solution to all problems. We all know Earth is overpopulated. We all know that sterilizing majority of population is a reasonable thing to do.

 Just remember that most of the food we have in the western society is not really comparable to what our ancestors thrived on centuries (or even decades) ago. Cows without their horns produce milk with less omega 3 fatty acids than those with it, not to mention effect of the kind of food they get to eat themselves and the medicine they get. Vegetables got cultivated to grow so fast that nutrients got lost. The oceans are so polluted that anything you take from it is pretty toxic. So as for health benefits, it may not matter much whether you take meat or vegetables exclusively. Except for maybe the vegetables that were forgotten during the whole cultivating rage and obviously the insects.

I can survive just fine not eating meat and as I can't get myself to kill an animal, I see no reason to eat meat. Moreover as I became aware of the environmental effects and animal welfare issues. And as I won't miss the meat, it is easy for me to proceed without rubbing against some new found environmental awareness. I won't tell anyone else what to choose as long as they are aware of the implications of their choices and still stand behind them. See, we all have a pretty big environmental footprint because of the choices we make. It is just up to us which part of it we really don't want to live without and which could reduce. If it is really important for you to take a big trip by plane every now and then, then go. If you really like meat that much that you like to have some at least twice a week then yeah, I'm not going to stop you. But maybe there is something you can cut on or invest in the more sustainable alternative. Maybe you don't need to have a cellphone constantly connected to the internet so that the battery wears out five times as fast (and where does the lithium come from?). Maybe you'd be just as happy with that aluminium bicycle component over the Chinese made carbon version. Eventually you'll still make choices others may not like (like eating meat) or may even not like yourself completely. But being aware goes a long way to make some proper choices.

I do think that the point of "mankind has made these choices for so long that it is probably right for us" is moot. Not only does food we eat nowadays have little to do with what it has been in the past as I mentioned earlier. We've also changed our ethical norms, I think for the better. Slavery is no longer acceptable (at least so that we don't want to be aware of it), discrimination of women and homosexuals as introduced by some major religions centuries ago is being frowned upon now, luckily even by most followers of these same religions. There has become some awareness about and care for animal welfare, the environment and even materials. The latter three may be relatively new, but to me it is in the same vein as the ones mentioned before that. Just because we've come so far at the expense of others doesn't mean we have to proceed like that.

 @chasejj - amount of energy needed to make 1 pound of cow meat is incredible and is a fact. It is nowhere close even to get a pound of Salmon. Eating meat everyday, considering how much sht is in it, is proven to be unhealthy in various ways. My parents eat some form of meat 3 times a day, my wife exercises that sometimes as well and gives me a hard time when I want to eat oats with fruits and nuts, telling me to eat "real food". I find it insane and nothing more but a habit, pattern of behavior. Not sure how it is though with scientific proofs of benefits of vegan diet. All I know is, the more vegans the better. I am personally trying to eat meat only on weekends and fish after workout/ride.
  • 1 2
 @WAKIdesigns: Energy-who cares. I pay for it at the market. Nothing better than good beef. Nothing. Sorry, I just could really care less about the perceived impacts of meat. That said , I hate farmed Salmon. The only good Salmon is sockeye from Alaska. Dark red/orange in color. yum. With science now being destroyed by PC politics . Don't believe everything you read. Most of the time it is driven by the Greenie agenda.

 @chasejj - I do care about energy spent per whatever happens, because that means emissions and it affects my life and of my kids. The only reason you don't care about emissions is because you don't see them, therefore they are beyond your cognition. Nevertheless human being is a first temporary, complex agglomeration of atoms in several hundred light years that can be aware of such process. So just because someone doesn't give a fk, doesn't mean it goes away, or has never existed even though it feels so. "I don't give a fk" is an extremely powerful statement giving lots of piece of mind. It is good though, to be aware of the fact that it is a state of mind, set of feelings, not necessarily having something to do with common reality.

So in terms of getting protein, beef is like driving a V12 pickup in town. VW Golf does more than well, but some people just need that huge engine, preferably leaving it on while waiting for somebody to come out of the building. If beef costed double the energy than most vegetable based sources of protein I may be fine about it. But it takes 5 fkng times more, using enormous amounts of water. California may have problem with drinkable water in your lifetime. And you know what will happen then? People will stop eating meat in such numbers. It is has been calculated (and it is not hard to calculate) that Chinese cannot eat as much meat as Americans (both North and South AM) , because there is not enough farmland on the surface of the earth to cover for such consumption. Prices will go up and people in America and Europe will simply stop easting as much meat. Not because veggies taste better, but because it will be more convenient to eat broccoli.

So you eat so much ONLY because it is convenient for you and ir corelates with a common pattern of behavior (or rather eating) embedded into your culture. That is completely separated from what it does to the planet. You have to admit that it is fkd up to not be a farmer and own a pickup truck. It is also fkd up how many people live in houses instead of block of flats. Inability to see how ineffective and life complicating that is, is laughable. If it was cheap, some people would own tanks. It still doesn't make it any smarter. How about I come to my neighbour and sht on his lawn? Why is that bad? Health issues related with overconsumption of meat and toxins it contains should be concerning you unless you don't have a family. We all have cancer cells in our bodies but not all of us have enough stuff that puts them regularly into our colons. My wifes father got cancer and still smokes, and I think he is an a*shole, because it is us having to listen to his bullshit while he cries, take parts of our free time to go to the hospital to meet him. My mom is obese, eats sht loads of candy and meat - I don't want to visit her in a fkng hospital. One day I will have to carry her heavy ass around. I want to ride my bike, maybe be with my kids, not listen to her existential bullshit about dying. She's a devout catholic to make it worse.

So make sure you don't need to be taken care of.

 @WAKIdesigns: WAKI- I disagree with everything you have said in your little rant. Your lack of empathy for your family is telling enough. You need to be less judgmental of people. Just because they don't see things your way or cope with life differently doesn't justify your vitriol. I am certain that attitude can be seen,felt by all.
Good luck Waki. When you get run over by some truck while living your super PC and kale/quinoa driven lifestyle while cycling in the countryside. I hope your relatives aren't as petty as you are in blaming your choices for your injuries. Not sure what happened to Swedish culture over the years, but it hasn't been good from what I have been reading.Maybe you should be protecting your women a bit more and less concern about my eating beef.

 @chasejj - I am more than confident about my wife being safe because I don't take US far-right wing propaganda any seriously. But if I was to apply your logic then I'd be really worried about my kids if I lived in US, so many news about paedophilia. But I don't do that because.

I am also quite empathetic, I actually plan to commit a sucide around 65, go to Alps or Himalaya and die of hypothermia at the side of some beatiful mountain. I don't want my kids to take care of me when I get older. I want them to enjoy living their forties without worrying about their sickening dad.

As to cycling in Sweden it is fantastic. It is a shame and I feel very sad for you that since almost 100 years your city planners have built your cities around car and fossil fuel dependence. If I lived in such urban sprawl I would totaly like to have 10 Nuclear carrier groups to make sure the gas is in the tank if my car, otherwise everyone's fkd. Distances to grocery stores are bad enough. How much do you spend on your daily commute? I bike to work 20mins one way without inhaling much exhaust gasses, while you can find info yourself on how many cigarettes you are smoking per hour on the highway by inhaling the sht.

As I say, it is convenient and easily accessible for you to eat so much animal protein. Make no mistake I cut my meat intake due to health and environmental concerns (coming back to health) I personally could not give a tiniest fk about animals, I hate pets and while I am dusgusted with mass scale industrial use of animals, I find animal shelters to be a waste of time and money.

Swedes are healthy have one of best life expectancies in the world, are often tested to be happiest in the world.

I said I eat meat, I eat everything.

 Go Paleo! We lived like that for thousands of years. Hunters and Gatherers worked only 4h a day. They were happy and my diet is reflecting the honorable values they lived by. If only we could go back... to the times of casual misscarriage, being killed by a bear or common flu. The thrill of another tribe jumping in, beheading everyone, tossing babies into fireplace.

 @WAKIdesigns: Im no vegan and I gave you props because I don't want to be labeled a hater. Please read about pre human history beyond the Stone Age. If you go back far enough you'll find we lived primarily (and super peacefully) off grasses and all sorts of fine herbs. Then climate shifts forced humans to eat animals. And then, in my opinion only, economy shifts made many of us think we needed to figuratively eat each other, leading to a shitty but mass excepted quality of life for the general global population. Also, when you practice your paleo diet, are you actually hunting and gathering wild foods? If so I applaud you and hope you are/will teach others your knowledge. I hope by now most meat eaters are atleast aware of the negative impacts on both their own life quality and the future of the environment when they make choices in acquiring their meats. Hunt and/or farm humanely and with conciseness for other life forms and/or buy/trade for sustainably raised meats. Do what's good for your body and the world around you, whatever diet you choose.

 @lindsaybeth: I was being sarcastic and I hoped my second last sentence was a hint Smile I am aware of all the things you wrote and I laugh at die hard "Paleo" people eating cows. You know, women were gathering herbs and fruits, digging up roots while men were out for days, coming back and saying. Oh we saw a deer. It was thaaat big, and we were thaaat close to kill it... we were chasing it for hours. But it run away... so... can we get some roots and berries?

I am a veggie and maybe eat 2 in one day...this seems ridiculous so how could anyone ever believe it? If you do well .....you deserve what happens. Either way she looks like she's eating a varied diet and doing yoga...whoopty do. What does it have to do with mountain biking

 Okay now keep your eyes open so you don't fall for the silly illusion again. Ask someone like Lauren Gregg what she eats and how she trains because she looks hot, healthy, and actually rides a mountain bike and I know she wears yoga pants to actually do yoga in.
