@oak0y, I think Ben was asking how we're supposed to pronounce your username (in our heads when we're reading it). Also interested where the name comes from ....

Totally not relevant, but I've been wondering, are you a male or female, Oak0y?

oak0y, if you're that fascinated by veganism/fruitarianism : GO FOR IT. Give it a try. Chances are it works great for you.

I don't understand the hype to compare diets to traditional diets. Different people, different races, different roots, different diets. The okinawa diet works for the okinawas, the Asian diet works for the asians, ... Just find what works for you. Don't look at what works for others.

That being said, I doubt there are many tribes doing 80/10/10 : unless it's a religious tribe, they probably eat meat. Okinawas eat lots of soy, Asians eat lots of fish, the Greek eat lots of fish and olives, ... If you wanna be 80/10/10 you can't eat animal products. I don't know any tribes that don't eat animal products at all.
