This is the second of a two-part series on the vegan diet. In the first video, we talked the benefits people commonly experience on a vegan diet. In this video, we’ll address some of its limitations and how to overcome them. Low-quantity and quality protein Vegan sources of protein provide a lot of calories alongside their protein, which can make getting an adequate amount of protein without weight gain difficult. If you’re a hard-training athlete, this may not matter because
This is the first of a two-part series on vegan diets. First thing is first… Let’s talk about the benefits. Weight loss One of the most common effects of going vegan is unintentional weight loss. That is, people tend to eat less calories without actively restricting because most of their foods shift from calorie-dense options to high water, high fiber, and high satiety plant foods. This has been shown in clinical research too: whole-food vegan diets are more satiating than wh
This is the first of a 3-part series on the carnivore diet. Why do people experience benefits from going carnivore? 1.) It’s a high-protein elimination diet. 2.) Many people will see benefits in their body composition due to drastically increasing protein and reducing calorie intake. That’s expected, but it’s not unique to eating carnivore, as anyone could obtain this benefit by adopting a protein-sparing modified fast that includes plant foods. 3.) The elimination of all pla
One of the biggest obstacles of self-evolution is our self-identity. Let me break that down for you… In order to move forward in our beliefs, we need to unlearn old beliefs. But that’s really hard to do when you associate your old beliefs with your self-identity because you essentially need to break down who you are in order to become a better version of yourself. So, think about people who’s entire identity is wrapped up in a belief system. In nutrition, this includes people
For those of you who have been undereating protein for a long time, you’ll find that increasing your protein intake to an adequate amount is very difficult because of increases in satiety as well as a misunderstanding of what foods are good sources of protein. And we aren’t going to focus on bioavailability here. We can think about foods as providing protein on the basis of both volume and calories. Fibrous veggies provide roughly half of their calories from protein, but they
Certain bacteria in the intestines produce endotoxins like 𝘭𝘪𝘱𝘰𝘱𝘰𝘭𝘺𝘴𝘢𝘤𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘴, which can be absorbed into circulation and cause a state of 𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘰𝘵𝘰𝘹𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘢 that leads to low-grade inflammation throughout the body. One reason the modern Western diet high in starches and fat causes so much health problems is because the 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗲𝘀 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝗶𝗹𝗶𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗼𝘁𝗼𝘅𝗶𝗻𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗮𝘁𝘀 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗲 𝗶𝘁�
