Vegan/Vegetarian vs. Paleo/Keto diet "extremes". Your views?

Those I've met who do keto do it more so to lose weight while the former is more of an ideology; they're more humble about it.

Everyone seeks someone/thing to love. Often and variably, people can become zealots. Those are the ones I have a little more effort to expend if I am to hear and understand their views. Its so often a tad tedious, since often, special needs of those with dietary restrictions can complicate what's in and not in a meal. If its for medical reasons, that's an obvious, but as a lifestyle choice? I don't know.

Ya, me too.
