There's so much in here, which I'm sure the other reviewers have covered in depth.
My slant into this is a return to becoming fully plant based. I'm 58yrs and consider myself well above average fitness. I'm flexible, capable of pushing some decent weights, and a Tai Chi Teacher. I've pretty much given up refined sugars as much as is possible. Mainly to offset arthritis. Yet.....
There's been this naggy inner spidy sense that tells me I need to radically change my diet. I've been vegan for 3 years back from 2003 to 2006. So I kind of know what I'm getting into here.
In the last comple of years, I feel that although I can get everything done physically I want, the cost is having to sleep up to 9 hours a day. Sometimes more. It's been getting worse recently. I've factored in training with very heavy weights for my build and age: late nights 2am-3am bedtime on days off etc.
The last 6 months I've had this calling to return to plant-based. I'm going to be honest here and say "gamechangers" on Netflix was so powerful that I instantly was given the "on" switch and pretty much became vegan within 24 hours of watching it.
I found an unread vegan book in my kindle library and it highlighted this book.
The extensive study(Chinese gathering of data) of Cancer pockets in China, opened a snapshot in time possibly never to be repeated, to study the data and visit the regions of healthy and unhealthy areas.
I loved the analogy of if you want 100% proof of something, throw a ball in the air and watch the effects of gravity bring it back down to the ground.
To find 100% proof of links into diet and poor health doesn't exist at this time. But 95% and 99% does exist.
How does this book flow? I found it very interesting and readable. It is endless though! But if you want to load yourself with data on the positive effects of going plant-based, you'll have enough data to crush nearly(99%) all arguments against it.
Here's an interesting quote from Dr. John MaDougall, a prominent surgeon about his education and how much attention was given to nutrition:
=="John finished his formal medical education having had only one hour of nutrition instruction, which involved learning which infant formulas to use. His experience confirms every study that has found nutrition training among physicians to be sorely inadequate."==
After 2 weeks I've lost 1.5kg. My strength with weights has not diminished. My recovery after 3hr weight sessions suggests that all the extra nutrients received in increasing my vegetables really are very powerful.
The weight loss was truly effortless. Almost too easy! I'd say that I've gone very clean with my diet. No sexy sauces added; lots of fiber and raw veggies.
Protein, so far from the plants, chick peas, kidney beans, some soya products, sproud(waitrose) milk substitute, bread(Waitrose sunflower and pumpkin seeds (2 slices)), various colourful veggies etc. Baked Potatoes and rice.
I should also add that even having reduced half of the meat-based protein I was having, I still couldn't really get a proper shift in weight loss.
I noticed almost immediately a lifting of my mood! Like a heavy burden had dissolved. Also currently under the cosh financially there was an underlying fear brewing(unknown to me at the time). That significantly lifted too. Inner biological workings improved:) My mind is a lot clearer. Addictions, especially reading the news online lifted too. A significant reduction in sweet-tooth cravings. So a significant positivity has arisen.
I've a working theory on the 'fear factor'. Could we be absorbing the fear of death from the cells of the meat and sadness from the dairy? (triggering:)
I hope to add a bit more to this review in time.
Update 11th Jan 2020
More personal than book related.... Im trying to plateau my weight between 76.5kg to 77.5kg. Currently 76.8kg from 80.8kg.
My partner since going 100% vegan on 1st Jan 2020 lost 2.2kg. She tried the intermittent fasting twice a week and didn't really lose anything for about 5 months. Partial vegan didn't seem to shift anything in the last month of December 2019.
Lots of veggies, mixed colours, leafy also twice a day just really sets the gold standard for the diet. Wrap the grains, rice, potatoes into the mix and a variety of protein sources.
My last note here is if you're having any desserts regularly then don't expect great weight loss results. My current gym manager is a massive guy about 6 foot 6, lots of fat, extremely strong but must weigh around 140-150kg. So you are what you eat. But If you eat loads of vegetables some with high fiber its not easy to continue eating unless it's got addictive additives in it.
It will change your life and is written by probably the world's leading nutritional scientist!
Did you know that CANCER, DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE is 'causally' linked to ANIMAL FOODS (meat, milk, cheese and other dairy products, eggs - and so on); and - critically - that these killer disease can by prevented and even reversed - by eating plant foods (which have all the protein and nutrients we need)?
Don't take my word for it - READ THIS AMAZING BOOK. I only just found about about it in September 2018 and immediately cut all animal foods from my diet. Since then I've gifted at least 10 copies to people I love or care about.
You will be be amazed.
Buy it now, read it and share it with your loved ones too...
Unbelievable in 2019
The author grew up on a dairy farm and believed milk & dairy vital to our health, his research proved otherwise.
As I write this, the book is $20. Spend the money, turn off Netflix for a week, and let it change your life. It's not a diet, it's the easiest lifestyle change you will ever make, and it will lead to a longer and more satisfying life of health and wellness.
