You can actually cover all the RDI's and ward off deficiencies with raw vegetarian, without eating any meat or seafood. I don't think it is optimal, obviously, but it is a good example of what a vegetarian should do if they want to be avoiding starches, legumes, soy and all that other crap most vegetarian doctors tell you to eat.

My calculator says 36% fat and over 58% carbs. I'm not buying it. Plus, looking at the foods represented, I don't see a year-round plan for most locations in the world. It's easy to enter some mythical diet in a nutrition calculator, but living that way is another thing entirely.

Well, if you're eating eggs from extremely healthy poultry, I would say it could probably be done fairly healthfully, especially if you're getting plenty of sunlight, and taking some kind of trace mineral supplement, and/or eating seaweeds.

I still think at least including some shellfish, like clams and oysters for the minerals, and sea urchin for the fats, is a good idea.
