    So, you post to say you aren't going to say anything, then make two statements without any backup in passing? Ten out of ten for rhetorical technique but zero out of ten for content.

    I've written all I have to say about the subject in the past, my friend, and have neither the desire nor energy to repeat myself in detail. Do a search if you're really curious.

    Nice to meet you, by the way. I'll be sure to check with you in the future when I need to know my scores for technique and content.

    A quick pointer would have been useful, then, if a summary was too much trouble.

    I think that was because on the protein count, my post directly preceding contained quite a bit of info. It would have been dreadfully redundant for ~monk~ to repeat it all!

    As for the other, I believe it was a statement of opinion.

    Perhaps you needed a pointer on some other topic? Because I'm sure one of us could help if you can't find the information you were seeking.

    Your information was on-topic, relevant to the original question, and backed up with sources. I had already read it, and it was good. It covered whether adequate protein can be obtained from plants (it can, with care over amino acid balance)

    I didn't see that ~monk~ was really responding to what you had said, it seemed more about high/low carb or high/low protein diets not sources for protein.

    Perhaps. It came across as 'here is a jibe and I am not going to discuss it' and I tend not to be over impressed by that 'drive-by shooting' style of debate. Its too often the refuge of those who can't argue their case based on facts and so stick to ridicule.

    ~monk~ then posted that there were older threads that contained a lot of info -I hadn't seen those, but was glad to hear that a case had been made somewhere . A pointer would have been nice, rather than assuming everyone had read them.

    Thanks - I happen to already know a fair bit about general nutrition (my first degree was in biochemistry) and about the hi/lo protein/carb debate (my partner runs a Pagan LoCarb list). It was more a plea for postings to have a factual basis than a request for specific information. But I will be sure to ask you if I need further data, thanks for the kind offer.

    Omnivore... how come that wasn't an option?
    I am starting to become sick of meats though. I need to find some good veggie recipes to kick things up a knotch

    Omnivore.

    I have seen many of these polls on different boards and for some reason they never mention omnivore.

    I think omnivore is sort of implied by the meat eating option in most polls, since there are very few people who are solely carnivorous.

    And last I checked jaundice wasn't caused by a lack of protein in the diet. It's usually caused by difficulties with the liver, often associated with toxicity from drug use (either pharmacological or illegal), or hepatitis. Malaria can cause jaundice as can pancreatic cancer or gallstones.

    There are a small percentage of people out there who are so anemic that eating meat is not an option. However, it's a very tiny group. The rest of us need to just suck it up and admit that eating meat is a choice and a habit from the last two generations or so.

    *shrugs* I have no problem with that. I make a choice to eat meat, if people want to try and turn that into me being a bad person, whatever.
