100% true, but try getting that through to people on FR between posting their next bacon thread. They get too angry and take it too personally.
I have a little boy I adopted that has cerebral palsy — I have no choice but to live longer and healthier...when I started looking at the grocer store - reading labels...I was like WOW- chemical warfare against the US public...I did it for me and him...and I feel soooo much better...and groceries actually cost less - because I eat less - but it’s all nutrient! It’s really the way to go....I’m not liberal either...highly conservative - and I want to conserve my health!
An obese woman I know eats a little meat at dinner but tons of everything else throughout the day. I would say her diet is balanced. She is very healthy except for one genetic disease (something with her veins) that should have killed her by now. She’s 80.
The bacon people are reacting to the veggie image vs cowboy image. I’m surprised our muslim administration hasn’t outlawed bacon.
“Dont want to die from cancer - stop eating meat, dairy, & sugars..replace it with vegs, fruits, grains, and almond milk - “
Meat and Dairy is not the problem. Meat loaded with antibiotics and hormones, and also dairy, along with pastuerized dairy, can be deadly.
Of course you can substitute good ole Soy Protein (Veggie) with all its cancer causing estrogenics...really good for cancer in the prostate or breast etc.
Now, seriously, if we are interested in preventing breast or prostate cancer we need to saturate the tissues with iodine. A woman with enough iodine in her system will not get breast cancer. A man with enough iodine will not get prostate cancer. An no, iodized salt does not give you enough iodine. Think supplementation. Some Japanese diets many have higher levels of iodine, and that could explain the less significant impact prostate cancer has on Japanese men.
So true. I radically changed my diet to almost all vegetables and a little fruit. Went a long time with no meat, no dairy, no sugars (other than from root vegetables and fruit), no processed carbs (no bread, pasta etc.) I lost 35 pounds and cut my 10k run time by 15 minutes. I’ve since introduced more protein as I’m lifting weights more. I’ve gained back 6 pounds of muscle.
The bottom line is I’m 43 years old and have 3 young sons. I want to be around when they grow up. I’d like to live well into my 80s and have a relationship with my future grand kids. It takes discipline. It helps that I’m still in the army and must pass an annual APFT. This year I maxed my run and took satisfaction in beating all the kids in their 20s.
Yes, I cheat sometimes. Had a party at the house last night and ate at least 6 pieces of pizza, drank 6 beers. That means I’ll run 8 miles today instead of 6.
One more thing...invest in a good juicer. Its a great way to get some quality calories. Watch the documentary “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross. Very entertaining and informative.
