Many meats are healthy for the body.

Veganism isn't a 'health diet', it's a lifestyle choice. Paleo done well is just as healthy as veganism done well, and veganism done well is just as healthy as paleo done well. There doesn't need to be an argument between the two.

I don't think meat or dairy is healthy, either. Certainly not on the level of what is recommended in paleo and primal plans. However, my point was that in order for me to be at my physical and athletic best I don't need to eat meat ... which is everyone's advice. People don't understand that being vegan is just as valid an option for losing body fat and building athletic ability. Personally, I was eating what folks call healthy when I did eat meat and/or dairy, and I was not healthy. But, this is a vegan site, so I came here in order to *not* argue about the two options but to associate with those of like mind. Obviously, I made it a lifestyle choice if I've been doing it for so long now ... not looking for a "diet" ... I used that word simply in reference to what we eat. It just so happens that anytime I discuss my desire to change my body composition, people tell me to go paleo or that I can't do it if I don't add meat or fish, etc.
