The risks of not going meatless is a recent editorial in the Mayo Clinic Health Letter that was written by Donald Hensrud, M.D.. My blog post yesterday, Plant based food going mainstream, was about how eating habits will be changing to where plant based food is the norm. Unhealthy and unnatural diets like Paleo and Atkins are rapidly losing their fad status as the science and medicine of the health benefits of plant based food are repeatedly demonstrated. Sadly, The Standard American Diet (SAD) is still sold by food marketers and bought by too many households. If you are one that still wants your meat (chicken, fish, beef & pork) and dairy (milk, ice cream, yogurt, butter, cheese …) hypnosis help for diet and lifestyle change is available for you at my Seattle hypnosis, Bainbridge hypnosis and online via my Hypnosis Health Info Internet Office.
The risks of not going meatless
Mayo Clinic Health Letter, Donald Hensrud, M.D.: When people think of drastically reducing or even eliminating meat and other animal products from their diet, their first thought is often: “What are the nutritional risks?”
I suggest that this question be flipped around. It’s really more valid to ask: “What are the risks of continuing to eat meat?”
Foods that come from animals — including meat, poultry (especially with the skin) and dairy products containing fat — are generally high in calories. Consuming them can make it harder to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. In addition, these foods are generally high in saturated fat and cholesterol, which are key contributors to your risk of heart attack, stroke and other diseases related to artery health.
In contrast, the risks of going without eating animal products are easily manageable, as you can read in our April 2010 Health Tips article “Going without meat.” Most important, the nutritional risks of going meatless pale in comparison with the potential benefits of a well-balanced, plant-based diet.
