My comments on the video.

Most people on these boards seem to throw the baby out with the bathwater - it's usually all or nothing. My way or the highway.

Rather than taking the good out of the diet and using it in a sensible way they go to extremes to prove their point.

Doug's diet, and it's handful of supporters use Doug and their own bodies as the proof of the diet - despite the fact it has a 99%+ failure / abandonment rate. That doesn't mean that eaten in moderation over short periods of time it's not valuable - which it is, provided people are not forcing themselves to overeat or stretch their stomachs and the dire consequences that follow.

On the other hand Jeff has shown a poor example of diet versus genetics.

You can't take a tribe living in a remote area eating unprocessed food who are active all their lives, and compare them with people who are slothful and inactive living in modern society eating a junk food diet and use them as your basis to say food is more important that genetics. That's about as scientific as Doug Graham saying '' look at me,I stuff my face and stretch my stomach and look how fit I am ".

If food is more important than genetics then how do we have a section of society operating exceptionally well with good genetics and a moderate non junk food diet. You can't ignore all the other people in society. You can't cherry pick to prove a point.

My '' Errors in health '' post dealt with genetics versus diet. Of course the ideal situation would be great genetics, good body chemistry and a healthy diet - and not necessarily an extreme one, but one which incorporates healthful practices such as juicing, raw food eating and moderate sensible eating that the body can cope with.
