Flexitarian diets

I usually keep my posts focused on health and wellness (avoiding more political issues like the environment), but I found this BBC News article on flexitarian diets interesting.

Years ago with my Slender For Life™ Weight Loss Hypnosis I used the term flexitarian frequently. In recent years, I’ve moved more to talking about a whole-food plant-based lifestyle.

Personally, I do not want to eat any animal product. No meat, fish, poultry or dairy (including eggs). The past 100 years of evidence shows that whole plant-based foods is the healthiest way to live.

However, I also know that if the 67% of the American population that is overweight cut back to just one serving of animal products per week, we as a nation would be healthier, more slender and there would be a dramatic reduction in healthcare costs.

'Flexitarian' diets key to feeding people in a warming world

BBC News, By Matt McGrath, Environment correspondent, October 11, 2018: “The study says that thanks to the population and income growth expected between 2010 and 2050, these impacts could grow between 50-90%. This could push our world beyond its planetary boundaries, which the authors say represent a ‘safe operating space for humanity on a stable Earth system’.

However the study finds that no single solution will avert the dangers, so a combined approach is needed.

So when it comes to climate change, the authors looked at what they called a ‘flexitarian diet’.

‘We can eat a range of healthy diets but what they all have in common, according to the latest scientific evidence, is that they are all relatively plant based,’ said lead author Dr Marco Springmann from the University of Oxford.

‘You can go from a diet that has small amounts of animal products, some might call it a Mediterranean based diet, we call it a flexitarian diet, over to a pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan diet – we tried to stay with the most conservative one of these which in our view is the flexitarian one, but even this has only one serving of red meat per week.'”
