What The Health Is Going On…

I’ve been getting quite a few messages from ladies on my Fat Loss Mastery Body Transformation Programme about the recent Netflix documentary:

“What The Health”

In short, it’s a documentary claiming that being vegetarian is “the healthiest” and the “best”.

Now, this could be true for some people and – in fact – my nutrition system has a whole section for vegetarians and vegans so you can create a well- formulated vegan or vegetarian diet that’s fun and doesn’t leave you lacking in certain nutrients that COULD leave you feeling tired…

But it’s not this I want to go in to today because the main part I didn’t like about the documentary was just how EXTREME and misleading it was.

Scare tactics, misinterpreted research, and – overall – a biased account of the science.

I mean, one story showed a women pretty much “healing herself”. But, my question is what was her diet like before? Could it be that she just ate too much fast food and then went on a vegan diet?

My opinion? Most diets would “work” in that scenario.

And here’s the thing, one study compared incidences of cancers in diets high in animal protein and diets high in plant protein.

Guess what? There were MORE cancer incidences in those eating more animal protein. BUT – and this is a big BUT – those who are more animal protein lived longer…

And there’s more. You see, one part mentions that colon cancer is 20% higher in meat eaters…but the media like to do is play with the numbers. The difference between 5 and 6% is 1%, right? But 1 is 20% of 5. So, they report “meat increased colon cancer by 20%“…

Not just this, how do you define ‘meat eaters’? This could be fast food diet full of processed meats and OVEREATING in general? OR this could be lean, fresh cuts of beef, chicken, pork, turkey etc….Can you see the potential bias here?​​​

Anyway, I’m going to leave you with this:

If you want to be vegetarian or vegan, you can – of course – do this and be healthy. In fact, many members who I work with are vegetarian and are thriving for this.

But what if you didn’t have to define yourself by your diet?

I mean, I for one could be vegetarian one day (I love eggs and cheese), a low carber the next, and a meat eater the day after.

And that’s the beauty of being flexible with your nutrition and finding the right plan for you…

^^^ Something you may want to consider when starting your next ‘diet’.​

So you can stick to it, enjoy your social situations with friends and family and – still- fit back into your favourite, more fashionable clothes!​​​
