Isn't it Funny How People Are?

I find it very amusing how people behave, especially when it comes to diet. People who eat a certain diet, which of course is always the best diet in the world, will recommend to others to eat the same way that they do.

Why is this so? I suppose it is because people are so insecure that they need to see others doing the same as them in order for them to feel like what they are doing is okay. If they can convince others to do as they are doing it must be right.

I see so many people who are 'experts' in one diet or another who recommend the diet that they eat. What made them experts in the first place is that they started to eat that diet. It's like a young child strapping on a pair of ice skates and they fumble around the skating rink, sort of just walking with the skates and after one week he or she is an expert in skating.

The majority of these experts are really just that, someone who tried a diet for a period of time and after a week, a month or in some cases maybe a year or so they are now the world's expert on diet and everything ever known about diet and nutrition is second nature to them.

They have such a huge ego that they 'know' their trial of a diet is the best and only valuable diet for any human on the planet. If they felt a bit sick or something just wasn't right at the beginning they would make a slight change, such as adding in some goat milk or raw meat and suddenly everything is back to 100%, eventhough it takes decades or even a lifetime of consuming a diet before one can have any idea of it's real value.

Why do people behave this way? Why can't they just study nutrition, observe humans on different diets, look in the world of nature and see what other similar species to humans are eating and absorb objective information before they start rambling on about how their diet is the best in the world, when it is really their ego that is the biggest in the world.

Most people in the western world were raised on a similar diet that includes meat, dairy, grains and lots of processed junk food. Most of these diet experts were successful in reducing some of the really health destroying food groups but were still addicted to some of the others. This of course allows them to make the claim that they are consuming the best diet in the world, when they know full well that they still consume a lot of very bad foods.

Let's analyze these clowns and understand that they are not making diet recommendations based on true health but based on their own addictions. If they say that they 'reduced' the meat or dairy in their diet read that as they are still addicted to meat and dairy. Eliminating meat and dairy is one huge step beyond where they dared to go.

If they say that eating 75% raw is all that is needed, this can be interpreted as them saying that they are still addicted to cooked foods and eating 100% raw is way better than eating 75%. If they say that some condiment is okay to consume but in a small amount, such as sodium, garlic, onions, etc. take that as meaning the best diet has zero condiments but they themselves are still addicted to these condiments.
