Re: Thoughts on "Forks over knives" Documentary and "The China Study"

As far as the comment that "You will not find many vegetarian supporters here" I'm kind of disappointed to see that from you Sheldon, while there was certainly a vocal minority, the vast majority of those who posted in response to your earlier threads merely voiced concerns (from past experience) that you might find yourself unable to support training on a vegetarian diet, thats not a criticism or antagonism, its a simple fact of having seen the vast majority of vegetarian/vegans struggle to recover and either quit the diet or quit crossfit. Given that you eat eggs, you are somewhat less restricted than traditional vegetarians and is likely part of the key to your success, but Whatever works for you best is important and it was clear standard meat eating was also not in the best interests of your training either considering your physical response to it.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will. - Vince Lombardi
