    Obviously, you are the exception that proves the rule, @MyQul , as home brewers are true gents and by definition could never be considered cultists (unless they are discussing yeasts). :laugh8:

    Have to agree there. Most of my daily work is trying to argue against pseudo-science and Voodoo nonsense. It's enough to drive you to drink!

    What do you do during your "daily work"? If your agreeing with jjsh's diet=religion theory your some sort of nutritional inquisitor? Diet Finder General?

    I'm a nutritionist. One of those boring ones that says a balanced diet is key.

    If you have got Netflix watch 'the game changers' it is a documentary about athletes who have a vegan diet.

    Disclaimer: I am not saying that everything in the documentary is correct, just that I found it interesting. Also I eat meat, fish, veg and fruit so not trying to influence anybodys diet!

    Its a good doc if taken at face value. The actual "science" behind it isn't great though.

    There's quite a few vids on youtube refuting the 'science'. But overall I liked it an is one of the reasons I switched to being vegan

    Yeah, I had a rant about it too on our blog. Without going into too much detail I felt it was a missed opportunity, instead of showing how being a vegan is possible they decided to stretch the truth to push an agenda, which I thought was disappointing. But that's my view, if it worked for you then great :)

    They didn't seem to cite much scientific studies, just wheeled out a succession of atheletes stating that because they were vegan they were at the top of their game

    Mr Banting was a fat chap back in the 19th century or thereabouts whose doctor put him on what we would now call a ‘low carb’ diet. It was the first successful slimming regime, which went the Victorian equivalent of viral, and ‘Banting’ became a synonym for ‘slimming’.
