Fruit... pathetic
« on: October 25, 2010, 08:50:01 AM »
Too much meat blahblah you should have fruit in your diet yada yada...

Kiwi.

If you eat it (raw), it contains an enzyme that breaks down meat.

So, if you eat this fruit, it helps you eat more meat.

....... pathetic.  All fruit has to offer in the argument that you should eat more fruit instead of just meat is that it allows you to eat more meat.  Truly a piteous food that cannot justify its own existence and must instead rely on the prospect of increased consumption of bacon and ribs.

My mother always used to say...Bacon, Eggs and Sunshine is what keeps us healthy.

I tend to agree with her.  I think the key is to exercise moderation. Too much of any one thing is not good for you.
Fruit is good for you.... that's for sure. Vitamins and minerals.

That's right and the day star gives us Vitamin D.  ;)

YMMV.

It's great for marinating meat, I use it in my bulgolgi.  Fruit is awesome.  Without fruit we wouldn't have such awesome things as Wisconsin Belgian Red, Rejewvenator, Raison d'Extra, I could go on.  Not to mention apple pie, blueberry jam, strawberry shortcake . . .

Don't be a hater  ;D

I agree. Eat nothing but meat so you can grow up big and strong, just like Brock Lesnar.

Raison d'Extra,

I've had d'Etre.  :)
That's a fine beer.  I prefer the d'Extra though.  :)

Fruit is good for you in moderation. It has the worst kind of sugar- fructose. However, I'd skip a soda to eat an apple or orange any day! BTW I don't drink soda, I figure beer is bad enough.

Exactly. Diverticulitis builds character. Fruit and vegetables are for wimps.

Ha! Maybe that's why Lesnar lost, he's changed his diet to include veg... ;D
