    Okay, I'm confused. Depending on WHO you ask among experts, it appears that there are conflicting opinions regarding legumes like say "Black Beans" -- which I happen to love. Some say that the natural fiber in beans are not only really good to have in your diet, but also a great source of protein that you can, and should, eat in abundance. But, when you read diets like say "The Paleo Diet", beans are not allowed. I enjoy beans because they tend to make me feel full longer and not crave eating again so soon....AND the seem like a really healthy thing to eat. I generally eat a can a day...usually for a late breakfast or lunch.

    I was doing paleo for a bit and generally liked it but one of my biggest issues with it was banning beans. I can't believe that beans can be that bad for you.

    This is why I use critical thinking when it comes to any diet...particularly the Paleo, since that's what I primarily eat.

    Beans = win. In fact, I'm eating a plate of Baby Lima Beans as I type this. icon_biggrin.gif

    A diet without things such as baked beans, is a diet I will never be a part of..... Its the work of the devil I say. icon_lol.gificon_smile.gificon_cool.gif

    MuchoMasQueMusculo saidSo, does the "musical fruit" reference refer to what I think it does?
