Given the tendency for our society to push food as a product for mass consumption and huge profits, it’s no wonder Americans are having a difficult time staying healthy, keeping fit and obsessed with losing weight.
It’s been proven that a vegan diet CAN help one to lose weight and promote a healthy lifestyle, but one can never know if he or she is getting all the proper nutrients (in the proper proportions) unless he or she is tracking food intake with a nutrition app.
With the growing popularity of the Ketogenic Diet (aka Keto Diet), people are avoiding grains and starchy foods, and I have to say that they are giving up a bit of healthy eating in favor of losing weight.
Every time I look up into the evening sky, I am in awe of the immensity of it all, just how open and seemingly infinite our universe seems to be. Then I think about our planet and what us humans are doing to it, either to benefit Mother Earth or to help destroy it.
Our planet, however, is like an enclosed eco-system, and not so infinite.
Finally, I met Dr. Neal Barnard in person. Dr. Neal Barnard is one of the vegan doctors who advocates for a 100% whole-foods plant-based diet. I first saw him on the documentary Forks Over Knives. I also saw him on Plant Based News. In addition, I would watch a lot of his videos on Youtube. If it weren’t for Dr. Barnard, I probably would not be vegan and I would not be informed about the health benefits of a vegan diet. When I heard he was coming down to San Diego and that his seminar is free, I was more than excited to go see him. Not only did I learned a lot from his lecture, but I was able to meet him and take a picture with him. I want to thank him for his advocacy and knowledge of a healthy, whole-foods vegan diet. He also had a book signing for his new book Your Body In Balance, which anyone could get on Amazon, the UCSD Bookstore, and Barnes And Noble’s
Many people think that vegans are deficient in protein and other nutrients. Well, here is my Cronometer from yesterday showing that I am not deficient in any vitamins, minerals, and protein. In addition, I am getting enough carbohydrates (maybe a bit too much), protein, and fats.
