Photo: Gillian McKeith vs Nigella Lawson

You may have seen this image on Facebook where it is currently doing the rounds.

I must say say it raises a fair point…

    uhhh….you guys probably have NO IDEA what you are talking about. MAKEUP and having a HAIR and CLOTHING CREW, helps that 51 a whole lot. But keep on eating your meat and dairy…..we want you to.

    This makes no sense. I could compare a photo of a haggard meat eater to a gorgeous vegetarian, and make the opposite point. Dumb.

    Yes, one could find any two pictures and make such a point. That being said I do believe a omnivorous diet is optimal — provided meat/dairy is biodynamic/pastured. I did the veg*n thing for a decade am much healthier now that I switched to a clean omnivorous diet. Plants are great at detoxing; animals truly nourish. A body needs a bit of both IMO.

    is a farce photo… That isn’t “fair” to compare a pic of Gillian,
    fresh out of a stay in a jungle, to Nigella all dressed up for an event.
    Not to mention genetics can play a role in how people age, regardless
    of diet. If you want to do this sort of comparison, do it w/twins where
    one is paleo or something like it and then the other is
    vegan/vegetarian. I hate this image b/c it’s a load of crap. There are
    many healthy vegetarians and vegans out there b/c like any other food
    style, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. I don’t believe
    for one moment that is only one RIGHT diet for everyone on this planet
    but I DO believe that what foods and their sources and the amount of
    manufacturing in that food is what is the concern…

    And is now a coke and pot abuser. Me thinks plastic surgery is somewhere in there too.
