Weight Loss Through Fat Burning

It’s time to let go of the wishful thinking that pervades vegan myths and open up to the complex truths.  Yes, it might be painful at first, but it’s a crucial step to understanding how we can honour animals, promote personal health, well-being, anti-aging and sustain the environment.

To start with, humans are omnivores with a mixed feeder’s teeth and digestive system. If we were meant to be herbivores, we’d have a mouth designed to chew cud and four big stomachs to hold and process it.  Grazing all day not only wastes the time and energy omnivores need to live passionate and productive lives, but can lead to indigestion, bloated stomachs, painful gas and either constipation or Diarrhoea.   Worse still, herbivores will either put on weight like cows, or become emaciated and weak due to chronic malnutrition.

Is Being A Vegetarian Healthy

Vegetarian Way Of LifeIf we look back to our forebears, the evidence is all there, within our DNA.  A common joke — but quite truthful all the same — is that the word vegetarian means “poor hunter.”    In fact, cultures from all over the world traditionally thrived on diets rich in animal fats and proteins, and limited fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains. This is traceable way back to the Paleolithic days, when our ancestors lived primarily on meat and fat. We are hunters and gatherers. As omnivores, we can enjoy small amounts of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains, but must not rely solely on them.

Vegans who try, tend to come up deficient in vitamins A, D, K, B2, B6 and B12; the sulfur-containing amino acids, methionine, cysteine and taurine; DHA and EFA fatty acids; and calcium, zinc, carnitine and CoQ10.  The other big concern, a lack of protein in a vegan diet, is tantamount to muscle degeneration and depleted immunity in those who follow this lifestyle.   Although the human body is theoretically capable of converting beta carotene into true vitamin A and omega 3 fatty acids into DHA and EPA, few people are healthy enough to do so.  Sunlight can produce sufficient vitamin D, but we also need good quality saturated fats from animal products to keep these levels optimal.

Corn Based Products – Healthy Or Toxic

Choosing Healthy and Toxic ProductsAs to that vegan myth that animal foods cause the diseases of modern civilization, what a load of codswallop!  The 20th century saw a decline in the consumption of meat, dairy and butter but  a sharp increase in the consumption of sugar, corn syrup and other corn based products, soy products, white flour, liquid and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, artificial flavourings, preservatives and other known health hazards of processed, packaged and fast foods.   All health problems associated with animal products — as well as cruelty to animals and threats to the environment – are the result of factory farming and other commercial and non-sustainable farming practices.  This is not the case in organic, bio-available, free ranging, eco-friendly and sustainable farming.

Therefore, we at the Gold Coast Ant iAgeing & Wellbeing Centre base all of our health programs  around the premise that saturated fats from animal products, adequate protein levels and controlled carbohydrates is absolutely essential to guaranteeing the best health results possible.  For further information on the specials currently available on our health programs, please contact us on 0420 362 990
