Comment of the week

Interesting New Yorker article on carnivory. A big problem with the carnivore diet is that it is expensive. Obviously, this is offset to some extent by the fact that one is not buying many of the other foods that people usually buy, but it will still be quite expensive.

The other problem is that for many of us it is unappetizing. I grew up eating a wide variety of vegetables, mostly grown in my father’s garden. We also ate meat or fish for most meals, but we never ate meat, poultry, or fish exclusively. I really like vegetables and I’m not convinced that eliminating them is the long-term answer for me and my family. For that reason, I prefer to stick with a more paleo way of eating.

-Good reason.
