Shocking Effects Of A Whole Food Plant Based Vegan Diet | Update

In nutrition, diet is the sum of food consumed by a person or other organism. The word diet often implies the use of specific intake of nutrition for health or weight-management reasons (with the two often being related). Although humans are omnivores, each culture and each person holds some food preferences or some food taboos. This may be due to personal tastes or ethical reasons. Individual dietary choices may be more or less healthy.

Complete nutrition requires ingestion and absorption of vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids from protein and essential fatty acids from fat-containing food, also food energy in the form of carbohydrate, protein, and fat. Dietary habits and choices play a significant role in the quality of life, health and longevity.

There are thousands of diets. Some are for losing weight, while others are for gaining weight, lowering cholesterol, living a long and healthful life, and many other reasons.

A diet is best described as a fixed plan of eating and drinking where the type and amount of food are planned out in order to achieve weight loss or follow a particular lifestyle.

Here are some diets that are popular in the community

1. Mediterranean diet
The emphasis is on lots of plant foods, fresh fruits as dessert, beans, nuts, whole grains, seeds, olive oil as the main source of dietary fats. Cheese and yogurts are the main dairy foods. The diet also includes moderate amounts of fish and poultry, up to about four eggs per week, small amounts of red meat, and low to moderate amounts of wine.

2. Raw food diet
The raw food diet, or raw foodism, involves consuming foods and drinks that are not processed, are completely plant-based, and ideally organic.

3. Vegan diet
Veganism is more of a way of life and a philosophy than a diet. A vegan does not eat anything that is animal-based, including eggs, dairy, and honey. Vegans do not usually adopt veganism just for health reasons, but also for environmental, ethical, and compassionate reasons.

4. Vegetarian diet
The majority of vegetarians are lacto-ovo vegetarians, in other words, they do not eat animal-based foods, except for eggs, dairy, and honey.

Studies over the last few years have shown that vegetarians have a lower body weight, suffer less from diseases, and typically have a longer life expectancy than people who eat meat.

5. Ketogenic diet
The ketogenic diet has been used for decades as a treatment for epilepsy and is also being explored for other uses. It involves reducing carbohydrate intake and upping fat intake. It sounds contrary to common sense, but it allows the body to burn fat as a fuel, rather than carbohydrates.

6. Atkins diet
The Atkins diet, or Atkins nutritional approach, focuses on controlling the levels of insulin in the body through a low-carbohydrate diet.

If people consume large amounts of refined carbohydrates, their insulin levels rise and fall rapidly. Rising insulin levels trigger the body to store energy from the food that is consumed, making it less likely that the body will use stored fat as a source of energy.

Therefore, people on the Atkins diet avoid carbohydrates but can eat as much protein and fat as they like.
Although popular for some time, the Atkins Diet comes with certain risks. Individuals considering the Atkins Diet should speak with their doctor.

A healthy diet may improve or maintain optimal health. In developed countries, affluence enables unconstrained caloric intake and possibly inappropriate food choices.

Health agencies recommend that people maintain a normal weight by limiting consumption of energy-dense foods and sugary drinks, eating plant-based food, limiting consumption of red and processed meat, and limiting alcohol intake.

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans is an evidence-based information source that policy makers and health professionals use to advise the general public about healthy nutrition.

  1. I know of someone who lived well into her 100s and literally scraped the bacon grease out of the pan and ate it, all the time. I also know a family of vegans who look gray as gravestones and have constant health problems. Diet is just one small factor.

  2. I want to start my family on a plant based lifestyle. How do the kids go about taking the supplements? I know for myself I use to take b12 everyday, is it ok for the kids to take the b12? Oh and vit D? I have a 14 and 11 yr old. Thanks!!

  3. yeah but when people start eating vegan, most of them stop eating bullshit, which is the cause of all of these diseases. there are no cultures that live off the plant based diet. the okinawans who are the people living the longest, eat meat and fish. its the shit they are eating with the meat thats bad, or maybe theyre eating too much meat. but u dont need to get rid of it all together

  4. Just got my cholesterol results back – went from 169 total to 138 total and my LDL has gone from 101 to 76 in seven months! Not to mention, for all of those protein worried people out there – my protein is in the normal range and actually went up a point haha. Been eating vegan since January and, however I DO slack a bit, I have been trying to get as many whole foods and plant-based food as I can. Also, I have made it a point to not do anything else out of the norm from before I went vegan. No out-of-control exercising and nothing else in my life has changed since the beginning of the year and these are the results. Will never go back!

  5. Can anyone tell me what you do about butter? I've tried to use earth balance but apparently soy and all of those artificial ingredients cause cancer. Whats the answer?

  6. People that say they almost died from a vegan diet are full of shit. I've been vegan for 1 year and 1 month and my blood lab results came back perfect plus I lost 50 lb. I haven't been this health in my 27 years and before I was vegan I was taking cholesterol pills then after a few months of a plant-based diet I was off of them. Including my mother-in-law she was taking blood pressure meds and after being vegan for a few months she was off of her meds.

  7. I Love all the people who help us in our diets and life through plant based diets. Thank you so Much to everyone involved and the doctors showing truthfully how they do not show how to help patients through diet but instead give Pharma medication. This is of paramount importance. Thank You Thank You Thank You

  8. No evidence just anecdotes oh and did you see that youtube vid of a vegan cyclist nutting off at car driver? I thought he was going to have a heart attack he was so angry.

  9. Yes, your conditions can be reversed. Down from 340 pounds to 165 Pounds. Take your lives back!! I'm off my Diabetes med's and High Blood pressure med's now! I'm no good for my Dr. lol 🙂

  10. I have been a vegan for over 40 years. I have no medical problems. I never have. I am 68 years old, and almost the same size that I was in Highschool. The first recorded diet, is found in the Bible. Gen.1:29 describes the first diet as a vegan diet. Please do the research yourself, and Go Vegan!

  11. I do wish the word "vegan" would disappear from the title of this video. A vegan diet allows for some nasty manufactured and processed substances. A whole food plant based diet quite rightly points to the unsuitability of such That's all I want to say. Now I am going to dunk another titanium dioxide biscuit in my green tea.

  12. my legs swelled up each day and once i started to eat plant based vegan diet no more swelling even after just 3 days now 2 weeks later i lost 3 pounds so far and i have much more energy this diet works it is amazing i am going to start a vlog to showcase this amazing lifestyle

  13. I have no doubt that eating s lot of whole plant food is excellent for your health , my genuine question is , are the improvents people are getting primarily compared to a very poor processed food diet and not that they are not consuming meat ?
    I say this as someone who experienced a vegan diet for 3 yrs after a crappy diet , I felt fab . Now I stick with lots of veg but add some meat and still feel great
