Let’s put an end to childhood obesity and learn the facts on dairy products. On June 4, 2014, Julieanna Hever, M.S., R.D., C.P.T., also known as The Plant-Based Dietitian, posted Why and How to Ditch Dairy. I am committed to reversing and ending childhood obesity in my lifetime and it is with that in mind that I felt it essential to share this post by the Plant-Based Dietitian.
Why and How to Ditch Dairy
Facts on Dairy:
- We do not need it for calcium, vitamin D, protein, etc. There are much healthier foods that contain adequate doses of these nutrients but without the steroids, hormones, chemicals, medications, saturated fat, cholesterol, and unthinkable animal suffering that goes into dairy’s production.
- The dairy industry is perhaps one of the most pervasive powerful, and creative forces to be reckoned with as they inundate the USDA’s dietary guideline decisions, are marketed to children directly, provide education to healthcare professionals directly and indirectly, fund massive research for intended, untruthful results, and have clever, compelling ad campaigns everywhere that makes us believe milk is a power food and critical to our health. It is absolutely not.
- Find calcium in plant milks, leafy green vegetables (kale is better absorbed than dairy…see study below), broccoli, unhealed sesame seeds, tahini, calcium-set tofu, oranges, beans, dried figs, fortified juice, and blackstrap molasses.
- Vitamin D is best derived from the sun but can be found in fortified plant milks and many people require supplements, regardless of type of diet, intake and sun exposure (see below).
- Find protein in legumes, nuts, seeds, quinoa, whole grains, leafy green veggies….all plant foods (see yesterday’s post).
- Ditch dairy by replacing it with plant versions, commit to a 3- to 4-week period to completely stop consuming it. That will get rid of the addictive nature of it.
