beans have always made me feel full which is a good thing and my turdies look better when i eat beans. i eat a variety of vegetables and meats so is it really that bad to eat beans? i'd also like to know if beans existed in the paleolithic era.

+1 There are worse sins in the world than eating beans. Especially when properly prepared.

If you're going to expose yourself to antinutrients, at least minimize them by handling the beans properly: http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.be/2009/01/how-to-eat-grains.html

Well, not all legumes are equal in their general evilness. Soy is off most lists, but some of the other beans may be okay especially when cooked. I think the two people I've heard talk about this is Kurt Harris and Matt Lalonde.

I don't much like beans anyway, and I do think peanuts are problematic, so beyond the odd green bean here and there, I haven't tried them.

I think the answer to this is that beans are not ideal because of antinutrients. I do love them and eat them anyway though. I think that if this is as far as your cheats are extending, then your diet is pretty great and a few beans will not hurt anything. I also really enjoy them and unlike some other cheats, do not get an upset stomach or feel off when i eat them.
