In this video, I’m going to talk about keto and veganism. I’m also going to give you my opinion on “The Game Changers” movie.
My viewpoint is, if you want to go vegan, you should do it. I have no problem with that. The only challenge I see is if you do it unhealthily.
My ultimate goal is to get people to eat real food. The problem is defining what real food means. Essentially, as long as you’re getting your nutrients and your fuel—you’re eating food.
It can be difficult to get all of your nutrients being vegan. Nutrients like:
• Zinc, iron, calcium
• Vitamin D
As long as you’re getting all of your nutrients and your getting high-quality protein, you can be a vegan and be perfectly healthy.
If you’re trying to lose weight, you have insulin resistance, you’re prediabetic, or you’re diabetic, it can be more difficult to be a vegan.
Dirty keto – doesn’t emphasize vegetables
Healthy keto and intermittent fasting – emphasizes vegetables (more vegetables than many vegan diet plans)
There are both unhealthy versions of keto and unhealthy versions of veganism. The bottom line is to make sure you’re getting all of your nutrients.
If you’re pregnant or breast-feeding, I highly recommend not being a vegan because of the chance of having deficiencies that could be a big problem in the development of the child.
In “The Game Changers,” they’re talking about the dangers of eating animal products. I would like to see a study that shows any negative effects from consuming grass-fed grass-finished organic meats or organic eggs. There are none.
When we recommend healthy keto, we’re recommending high-quality ingredients. Some studies vegans quote are done with processed foods and are based on questioners.
If you have something along the lines of gut inflammation, celiac disease, or irritable bowel syndrome, I do not recommend a lot of vegetables or veganism. I recommend you be a carnivore for 2-3 months, then slowly add vegetables to the diet.
