Harley Johnstone, creator of “30 Bananas a Day”, world biking champion and avowed vegan/fruitarian, addresses a number of claims made by Sean Croxton, founder of UndergroundWellness.com and proponent of the paleo diet along with the heavy use of supplements. We feel it is well worth a watch.
Youtube Video: Sean Croxton VS Durianrider. Dietary debate: Grease & Lard vs lean
Sean Croxton, along with a number of other paleo or meat/animal-product/vegetable diet proponents, make a number of nutritional and health claims that Harley addresses in detail in the above video.
Some of the issues he disccuses are:
Omega 3′s, EPAs, DHAs
Fats and Artery Health
Real Science vs.
Saturated Fats vs. Natural Fats
clinical science vs. “bro” science
We feel that Harley’s arguments are well reasoned and well thought out.
Harley Johnstone, dedicated athlete and passionate and ardent supporter of the fruitarian and vegetarian lifestyle, travels the world with his girlfriend Freelee (pseudonym) engaging in world-class endurance bike competitions and enjoying his favorite fruit, the “durian.” He is founder of the food community website, 30 Bananas a Day.
Sean Croxton is a personal fitness trainer, video blogger, Internet radio host and FDN (Functional Diagnostic Nutrition) instructor. Sean follows the paleo diet which emphasizes the consumption of meats, fats, vegetables and supplements.
Harley believes that most supplements are not necessary, but rather a means for marketers to make profits rather than support health.
