  • Food Choices Documentary

    Who has seen this documentary? It is all about adopting a plant-based diet, seriously reducing or eliminating animal based food.....would like to hear some comments about it, they make a strong case for plant-based......they don't call it veganism or vegetarianism, but plant-based.
    The life I have today is far better than I deserve.......

      Can't imagine that many people here will approve of it though, this being MDA with an emphasis on animal food. But we'll see.

              I'm not looking for approval, as I don't agree with some of it, but I do agree with some of it, haha, just interested to hear some discussion.....for instance, they claim the need for protein is way over-hyped, saturated fat IS bad, even from grass-fed beef, and polyunsaturated fat is not so bad......definitely some anti-Primal stuff in there

                Yah, those where the same things in the forks over knives documentary....here's my quick assessment.

                1. No wild humans traditional society has ever been vegan. Anytime we try to manipulate an animals natural diet they end up diseased with greatly reduced lifespan (lots of zoo studies to back this). Ergo....don't jack with the natural human diet by artificially eliminating a vital source of our nutrition (meat).

                2. Protein requirements depend on stage of development, but in general we find it to be approximately 15% by caloric breakdown. When we limit that to 10% caloric intake rises substantially to compensate and we see weight gain and metabolic disease. Greater than 15% intake and up to 30% boosts metabolism and induces higher satiety aiding weight loss or healthy weight maintenance and shows a marked improvement in muscle mass development.

                3. Saturated fat is stable and vital. PUFA is unstable and required to be in proper ratios. Plenty of recent research vindicating saturated fat.

                I imagine that just like FOK they excel at cherry picking in this documentary and if we didn't already have the whole database of contrary studies at our fingertips it might be compelling. But we do so.....I'm gonna have eggs, bacon, and cantaloupe for breakfast now

                  Thank you for stating that so much better than I ever could. Breakfast sounds good.

                        The word "vegan" got a bad rap, so they changed it to "plant-based." Utter BS. ALL of our diets are plant-based, if you go back far enough. Vegan is better described as "plants-only."
