No surprise to me!! I looked into mental issues as a result of diet some years back, due to problems with a person I knew who ate very restrictive diets. Very real issues.

Probably not the restrictive diet that was the problem.
These people are vegetarian and eat very little, go with nearly zero food part of the year.



World's healthiest and oldest living people share their secret recipe 11.08.2017




In April 1984, a Hong Kong newspaper published a curious article. One of the Hunza people, a man named as Said Abdul Mobut, arrived at London's Heathrow Airport, where he puzzled passport control officials when he presented his passport to them. The man's passport said that he was born in 1823 and had thus turned 160 years old. The Hunza people have a simple recipe for their healthy longevity: be a vegetarian, always work physically, move constantly and do not change your rhythm of life. In this case, they say, people can live up to 120-150 years.

No wait, you're a Trollnivore


That would mean I eat trolls.

But I don't. They're too salty.


Too chewy as well, unless you cook them very slowly, then they lose all flavor.

Nope, she ate quite a lot, as far as volume is concerned. It was the diet. First just basic vegetarian, and she'd include dairy, eggs, and sometimes fish. Then, she wasn't as unhealthy. When she went all vegan, she dropped a LOT of weight, even though she was eating more bulk, and developed all sorts of health issues. Every single symptom she had could be traced directly to a nutritional deficiency. When she improved for a short time? She actually ate meat again, and added back in dairy. When that stopped, her heath plummeted again. Many mental problems as well. Never happy.

The diets she tried, I am certain, were ore for attention than for anything else, though she offered the usual reasoning. She didn't like the meat industry, at first, then later, it was some crazy "Biblical" diet, that wasn't Biblical at all, that she was suckered into trying. Large numbers of grains most people don't know about, plenty of veggies, fruits, tofu, soy, etc. She even used a "supplement" that the one diet sold (how convenient for them). She also ignored the fact hat one person who'd helped create said diet stated it was not safe for long-term use, because she wanted the attention. Not eating meat was about virtue signaling for her, about gaining attention not just for being different, but in her case, for being ill.

Only met a couple of other people who were vegan, and they were painfully thin, and not happy, either.

I am all for treating the animals well, and most who work that industry do so. That's already been covered, though, so not detailing all of that again. All for a balanced diet, too. We eat some meats without meat. I make an awesome spaghetti sauce, with sauteed mushroom and onion, and a nice blend of seasoning. Doesn't need meat. I also make some awesome dishes that are meat-based, and won't trade them in for anything. Nothing makes a hearty meal like some good beef.

Sounds like an eating disorder, hope she gets help with that.

I know people can live healthy on very little and live very healthy too. We have a lot more than we need nowadays.

It could also be because of the drastic drop in calories and the large increase in fiber. That's something my Mom & I have both noticed from going vegetarian.

I already have a high metabolism because I like to stay in shape, but going veggie really screwed with that. Most of my vegan-friendly meals only had 200 or so calories in them and a massive increase in fiber. I don't mean store bought meals either; I'm talking about corn, cooked greens, carrots, baked potatoes, salads, etc. And even a plate full of different fruits will barely have 200 calories yet be loaded with fiber to kill the appetite. My first week, I was eating way more quantity than other people yet barely getting 900 calories a day. I was technically starving myself.

Now, I literally have to make sure that I eat calorie rich things like beans and rice, cheese pizzas, several sweet potatoes at a time, snacks (like cookies, brownies, pies, etc) just to reach my calorie targets. I've also added some sugary drinks like different types of chocolate milks and fruit drinks because it helps increase my calories. Teas and water also make you feel full without supplying any of the needed calories.

I don't think most people realize just how much more fiber is in real foods. Depending on how hardcore some people go, a strictly vegan or vegetarian diet can have such high fiber levels that it'll kill the appetite (and fruits like melons have large water quantities which also suppress the appetite). Even my precious honey roasted peanuts are loaded with fiber. Eat 2 apples and you're getting close to 40% of your daily fiber requirements. Yeah...

Same way we are nutritious to those things that like to use sleep paralysis to feed off us.

I did a bit of research after this comment, quick question.....did you try the strict version of the ketogenic diet...i.e. under 20g (grams) carbs per day?

I think so, too. So did an eating disorder site that I contacted, not giving any names. As for help, not that I know about! Lost contact with that person, after she did some other really, really stupid things. Whole other mess there, though, and would be too off topic here!

Yeah, people can be healthy with less, for sure. Still, balance, in diet as in other things, is important.
