    It doesn't exactly factor in nuts, dried beans, and winter vegetables. Certainly you're not going to live as a vegan in a polar coastal climate but rice has been gathered in temperate climates without cultivation level efforts for as long as civilization can remember. Definitely not as high a calorie return as other options, but sufficient to feed more people than it takes to gather.

    I do not think he was talking about "civilization" in this article. I am sure nuts would be fine with the writer, although he might describe them as seasonal, as he did with fruits.

    It's not that hard if you try to learn how to do it and not take what you read on a box as the gospel, but a lot of people just don't know any better. The doc you recommended profiled two parents that thought they were doing the right thing with their overweight kids. They heard over and over and over that low fat this and that was the way to go. One of the parents got "lean" or "low fat" hot pockets for their child thinking they were doing the right thing. The other one was feeding her daughter cereals. That "healthy heart" symbol is on a lot of foods and people don't know it's BS.
