I am an athlete (competitive running accompanied by yoga, calisthenics, and swimming) seeking the ideal diet. I've been advised to adopt diet plans ranging from Veganism to Paleo, Whole Food Plant Based, etc.
The vegan camp claims humans are essential herbivorous, the paleo camp insists animal protein and fats allowed early hominids to develop into current humans.
Vegans cite low disease levels among vegans, while meat-eaters claim the Maasai, who eat a diet of raw meat and blood, have virtually no Western disease either.
Is there an authoritative answer to the question of the ideal human diet?
