NY Times 1907
In February, 2014, I wrote about a 1907 NY TIMES headline that read, CANCER INCREASING AMONG MEAT EATERS. The news hasn’t gotten any better. Today, we know that meat consumption is associated with inflammation, diabetes, high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction and obesity.
Is that steak, chicken, fish, or pork chop really worth the diseases it causes or even dying for?
Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore can help you to easily end your desires for the foods that make you sick and fat and create wonderfully healthy desires for the whole plant-based foods that make you healthy and slender.
Are you “meathooked”?
I know it’s a holiday and the traditional summer kickoff. Many of you have plans for barbecue. That’s great. We do too. Saturday night we grilled corn on the cob, portabella mushrooms and roasted red peppers.
Tonight, we will grill a variety vegetables with hunks of pineapple.
If you really think you need the meat experience, then go to the store and purchase a dairy free meat substitute like veggie burgers or veggie dogs. Or better yet, go to the Slender For Life™ Recipe Library and make your veggie burger.
You don’t need meat, you may think that you can’t live without it, but you easily can and it will improve your health.
It’s Memorial Day
I invite you to use this holiday as a new beginning – a day to unhook yourself from meat.
Use today to begin your whole plant-based food lifestyle. Hypnosis for weight loss can help you to easily make this transition.

“We can eat well – maintaining our health and enjoying delicious flavor – without meat.”
NPR, Barbara King, May 19, 2016: “I encounter claims that humans were designed to eat meat — that it’s in our genes, that we have teeth made for eating meat, that we need meat to get all the right nutrients — all the time in casual conversation and in media in stronger and weaker versions.
In Meathooked: The History and Science of Our 2.5-Million-Year Obsession with Meat, science writer Marta Zaraska does a great job of exposing these claims as myths.
Vegetarian animals ranging from gorillas to water deer, she reports, have bigger, sharper canines than we do; our canines aren’t specially meant for processing meat. What we lack dentally is more important, in fact, than what we have. Gently open a (calm) dog’s jaw, and there at the back will be the carnassial teeth, “blade-like and sharp and perfect for slicing meat.” Lions and tigers, raccoons and house cats — all carnivores — have them too. We don’t.
All the high-quality amino acid proteins we require are readily available in plants, Zaraska says, listing soy, buckwheat, quinoa and potatoes as examples.”

The Grim News
According to the USDA Agriculture Fact Book, Chapter 2, “Now more than ever, America is a Nation of meat eaters. In 2000, total meat consumption (red meat, poultry, and fish) reached 195 pounds (boneless, trimmed-weight equivalent) per person, 57 pounds above average annual consumption in the 1950s (table 2-1). Each American consumed an average of 7 pounds more red meat than in the 1950s, 46 pounds more poultry, and 4 pounds more fish and shellfish.”

Carnism: The Psychology of Eating Meat ~ Melanie Joy
Carnism is the invisible belief system, or ideology, that conditions people to eat certain animals. Carnism is essentially the opposite of veganism; “carn” means “flesh” or “of the flesh” and “ism” denotes a belief system. Most people view eating animals as a given, rather than a choice; in meat-eating cultures around the world people typically don’t think about why they find the flesh of some animals disgusting and the flesh of other animals appetizing, or why they eat any animals at all. But when eating animals is not a necessity for survival, as is the case in much of the world today, it is a choice – and choices always stem from beliefs.
