Something I have noticed over the last couple years, are that many if not most people dive into the WAPF way of eating, thinking that they must eat ALL the foods that are championed by the foundation.
I have also noticed that most believe that WAPF is low carb.
Both are not at all true. In fact, the foundation actually tells you how to eat a healthy vegetarian diet if that is what you prefer or do better on, and it also promotes lots of good carb filled foods!
Very low carb eating actually is damaging in the long run.
I agree that we should all look at eating lower carb then is standard in the US, but do be aware that limiting to keep up your energy is actually damaging to your adrenal glands.

Another interesting belief is that everyone should be trying to eat as much fat as the Eskimos did, which is about 80% of calories.
Again, not at all true of what is taught.
If you live in the arctic or antarctic, and do not eat junk food, then by all means, eat 80% fat.
But if you live in a hot climate, then you will want to drop down to as low as 30%.

You are also not required to eat/drink dairy. Its just that if you do, it should be at the least raw, if not grass fed and raw.

Remember that every one of us comes from different ancestry, and live in different climates.
I think everyone would do their very best to eat seasonally in their region.

And do remember that we are living with some level of permanent damage to our bodies. We may never achieve perfect health.
But we can certainly get the next generation started out better, so that when the 3rd generation comes along, they will be back to what Dr Price saw in the untouched villages across the world.
