A Meat-Lover Goes Vegetarian and Vegan – How, Why and What Were the Benefits?

 diet plans  Comments Off on A Meat-Lover Goes Vegetarian and Vegan – How, Why and What Were the Benefits?
Feb 232012

I grew up as a die-hard meat eater and lover. My grandfather was a cattle rancher in Omaha, Nebraska and for us, it wasn’t a meal unless there was some kind of meat with it. Bacon or sausage for breakfast, lunch meat or hamburger for lunch, steak or pork for dinner. Vegetables and fruits were just the things on the side that you were forced to eat but tried to avoid at all costs. I loved meat more than anything (actually, I still do love meat, I just chose to avoid it because the benefits so much outweigh giving into my meat cravings).

In college (1987 – to date myself a bit), my boyfriend decided he wanted to try to be a vegetarian and he dared me to see if I could too. He thought for sure he would win the bet because I basically could not live without meat, but I took him up on the bet.

The transition was so difficult as it truly was nearly impossible to resist my favorite foods. Every time I would smell bacon or a big juicy steak, I would buckle at the knees. But out of pure stubbornness, I kept it up. Days went by, weeks went by, and he and I were still on track as being vegetarians. We were exploring new foods and getting creative, but it is true that my cravings still had not disappeared.

Being a college student and young, I was not very well educated on nutrition in general. And with my new vegetarian diet, I felt that as long as I wasn’t eating any meat, that I was just doing fine. So what that turned into was a diet full of cheese pizza, potato chips and cereal as the easiest and cheapest food on campus. As weeks turned into months, I found that I was constantly starving and that my energy levels were low. However, my life-long battle with asthma was much better. Hmmm – quite the dilemma.

After a full year of being a dedicated vegetarian, I felt I had proved the bet well enough but was ready to go back to my meat-eating ways. All of my vegetarian friends warned me that if I wanted to go back, that I needed to do it slowly by eating one or two bites the first days and slowly increasing the amount of meats I ate so as to not send my system into shock and get sick. I listened to their advice, and quickly went to Wendy’s and got a double-bacon cheeseburger and inhaled it in one sitting. Did I get sick? Did my body go into shock? No way. My body was in pure heaven and I felt great.

I went back to eating meats regularly for a few months, but noticed that over time, I was starting to feel worse and worse. Things like my energy levels, weight gain, constipation were all becoming problems. And that is when it dawned on me, that I wanted to stay a vegetarian, but needed to learn more about how to do so in a healthy way in order to gain all of the many benefits.

From that point on, I learned and applied whatever I could to make sure I was getting enough protein, nutrients and anything else our bodies need to thrive on and within a short while, my health was better than it had ever been in the past.

So, I still am a meat lover and I cannot deny that. But I have proven to myself that I am a thousand times healthier by taking out all animal products from my diet (I am now a 95% vegan). And I also have become an avid animal-rights lover because I do believe they are wonderful creatures who deserve our kindness and respect. Add to that the fact that eating less animal products is so much better for our planet and the benefits of being a vegan or vegetarian are not only good for you and your health, but also the animals and the planet you want to leave behind to your children.

There are many excellent resources to discover the true health benefits such as reduced cholesterol, blood pressure, cancer rates and more. One of my favorite books is The China Study and Hippocrates Life Force.

Having faced sever asthma and bronchitis since two-years-old, Tia Diaz has learned over a lifetime the simple and natural ways to improve her lung health and strives to help others do the same. She has created two websites dedicated to helping share and support each other as they go down the path of learning and improving their lives.

Ladat is a forum for people wanting to learn more about alternative health and wellness options and Vegan123 helps others learn the benefits of reducing the amount of meats and dairy they eat.

Fast Food Weight Loss – Is Eating At McDonald’s The New Path To Weight Loss?

 diet  Comments Off on Fast Food Weight Loss – Is Eating At McDonald’s The New Path To Weight Loss?
Sep 212011

Is eating at McDonald’s the new path to weight loss? Can fast food burgers, fries and sodas fit into your diet and weight loss program? For years, the answer has been a resounding NO. But lately, Wendy’s, Burger King and many other fast food chains have made changes to help consumers stick to a healthy diet. Why have fast food companies finally started to pay attention to healthier food choices? Simply stated, because it’s good for business. Americans are trying everything from the newest weight loss pill to Weight Watchers to lose their extra fat, spending ‘…..more than $40 billion in 2004 on weight control pills, gym memberships, diet plans and related foods, estimates Marketdata Enterprises, which studies the weight loss industry’ (Source:; 1-14-2005). Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that 80 percent of overweight individuals and almost 87 percent of obese individuals are trying to lose or maintain their weight. Any fast foods company that’s paying attention to public sentiment and trends has made changes to make their menu more palatable to the health and fitness enthusiast. McDonald’s, long an industry leader, has made tremendous strides in this area culminating in their recent announcement that all fast food packaging will soon include nutritional information. But have they gone far enough? -> Fast Food = Fat Food: No matter how many healthy new products are introduced onto the fast food menu boards, the problem is that their core products are high in fat and calories. Consider these typical meals from McDonald’s: * Big Mac, Large Fries, Large Coca-Cola, Hot Fudge Sundae = 1,730 calories, 99% of daily fat, 108% of daily saturated fat, 86% of daily carbohydrates * Chicken Selects Breast Strips (5 pc), Large Fries, Large Coke, McFlurry with M+M’s Candies (12 oz.) = 2,290 calories, 151% of daily fat, 131% of daily saturated fat, 100% of daily carbohydrates * Bacon Ranch Salad/Crispy Chicken, Newman’s Ranch Dressing, Large Coke, McFlurry Oreo (12 oz.) = 1,390 calories, 73% of daily fat, 81% of daily saturated fat, 69% of daily carbohydrates (Source: Some consumers, in an attempt to reduce the number of calories and fat they’re eating, have opted for salads instead of traditional burgers and fries. Unfortunately, some fast food salads are almost as bad for us as a Big Mac. A California Cobb salad with Newman’s Own Cobb Dressing from McDonald’s, for example, boasts 490 calories and 42% of your daily fat. Compare that to a Big Mac, which has 560 calories and 47% of your recommended daily fat. Although chastised in the movie ‘SuperSize Me’, McDonald’s isn’t alone in offering high calories foods. The Original Whopper with Cheese from Burger King will cost you 800 calories and 49 grams of fat. Make that a Double Whopper with Cheese and you’ll consume an incredible 1,060 calories and 69 grams of fat. The Big Bacon Classic from Wendy’s is better with 580 calories and 29 grams of fat, while the Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger from Jack In The Box is the highest on the list with 1,094 calories and a tremendous 78 grams of fat. Clearly, high calorie fast food has become a problem. With approximately 65% of Americans classified as overweight, people are pointing fingers of blame. ‘In a lawsuit filed in 2002, two Bronx teenagers accused McDonald’s of making them fat by serving them highly processed food that affected their health. A judge tossed out the case a year later, but an appeals court reinstated part of the suit earlier this year, according to published reports.’ (Source:; 10-20-2005). McDonald’s isn’t the only chain being accused of making people fat. ‘A New York City lawyer has filed suit against the four big fast-food corporations, saying their fatty foods are responsible for his client’s obesity and related health problems. Samuel Hirsch filed his lawsuit Wednesday at a New York state court in the Bronx, alleging that McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC Corporation are irresponsible and deceptive in the posting of their nutritional information, that they need to offer healthier options on their menus, and that they create a de facto addiction in their consumers’ (Source:; 7-24-2002). The fast food industry initially responded by arguing that customers have a choice of what to order when going to a restaurant. ‘It’s senseless, baseless and ridiculous,’ National Restaurant Association spokeswoman Katharine Kim said. ‘There are choices in restaurants and people can make these choices, and there’s a little personal responsibility as well.’ (Source:; 7-24-2002). Our elected officials seem to agree with that assessment. ‘The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday that would block lawsuits by people who blame fast-food chains for their obesity. The ‘cheeseburger bill,’ as it has been dubbed in Congress, stems from class-action litigation that accused McDonald’s of causing obesity in children’ (Source:; 10-20-2005). This bill is not yet law, having passed the House but not yet the Senate. In the last Congress a similar bill passed the House, but the Senate never acted on it. About 20 states have laws similar to the ‘cheeseburger bill’. -> Fast Food Makes A Change: To their credit, McDonald’s and some others in the fast food industry have made changes to their menu making it easier for us to stick to our diet program or weight loss plan. McDonald’s allows consumers to substitute Apple Dippers with Caramel Dip for the french fries in their meal, cutting calories from 350 to 100 and reducing fat from 16 grams all the way down to 1 gram (comparison vs. medium fries). McDonald’s also allows a no-cost substitution of 1% milk instead of a Coke, further cutting caloric intake by 50 calories and boosting protein and calcium (comparison vs. small Coke Classic). Upon request, Burger King now provides Mott’s Strawberry Flavored Applesauce in place of french fries which will save you 270 calories and 18 grams of fat (comparison vs. medium fries). Wendy’s will honor customer requests to substitute mandarin oranges for french fries, sparing you a belt-busting 360 calories and 21 grams of fat (comparison vs. medium fries). Not only are the fast food giants allowing healthier substitutions, but they have also added a selection of fairly nutritious menu options. McDonald’s new Fruit & Walnut Salad has only 310 calories and 13 grams of fat, while their Fruit & Yogurt Parfait boasts 160 calories and 2 grams of fat. In some markets Burger King is offering a Veggie Burger that has only 340 calories and 8 grams of fat when you order it without the mayonnaise. Now McDonald’s has given consumers looking for fast weight loss another tool: easy to read and easy to find nutritional labels. In the past, customers wanting to find nutrition facts on their fast food choices either had to search in the restaurant for a hard-to-find poster or go online. Now, in what is being called a ‘bold move’, McDonald’s is planning to put these nutritional facts right where they’re easiest to find – on the product wrapper itself. ‘McDonald’s Corp. customers will soon know that the Big Mac they bought contains almost half their recommended daily fat intake just by looking at the wrapper. In its latest measure to fend off critics that blame the world’s largest restaurant company for contributing to rising incidents of obesity and other health problems, McDonald’s said it will start printing nutritional information on the packaging of its food’ (Source:; 10-26-2005). McDonald’s is to be commended for their efforts to educate their customers. This new informative label goes a long way towards answering nutritional concerns. Expected to be in most stores by the end of 2006, the new labels will include the amount of the nutrient (calories, fat, protein, etc.) and the percentage of the daily recommended intake, based on a 2,000 calorie diet. -> Is It Enough? The fast food industry has heard the public asking for healthier options and more nutritional information, and they have responded. But it is enough? McDonald’s and others still sell high calorie and high fat products, and we shouldn’t expect those to disappear anytime soon. In our free market, as long as there is a demand there will be someone with a supply. ‘Data from USDA’s food intake surveys show that the food-away-from-home sector provided 32 percent of total food energy consumption in 1994-96, up from 18 percent in 1977-78. The data also suggest that, when eating out, people either eat more or eat higher calorie foods-or both-and that this tendency appears to be increasing’ (Source: Even with more information at their fingertips, there is some doubt that consumers will actually use that information to make healthier choices. Consider the limited impact from warning labels on cigarettes and alcohol packaging; despite such dire warnings, people still use these products. There is evidence that Americans will continue to eat what they want, no matter how much information they have available to them. ‘According to a 2000 Roper Reports survey of a nationally representative sample of 2,000 Americans 18 or older, the percentage of Americans who say they are eating ‘pretty much whatever they want’ was at an all-time high of 70 percent in 2000, up from 58 percent in 1997′ (Source: The question of ‘is it enough’ seems to be misdirected. Instead of asking the fast food industry to do more to educate the public and offer healthy options, perhaps what we as a country should do is ask ourselves if the information we have right now is enough. If we look for it, is there enough health, fitness and nutritional information out there to help us make the right dietary choices? As uncomfortable as it may be for some, the answer to this question is probably yes. -> The Overlooked Answer: All too often, when participating in a discussion of diet and weight control, we fail to mention the most obvious answer: exercise! Consistent exercise can balance out and make up for the occasional high calorie fast food meal, while at the same time providing countless other health benefits. Exercise is the only path to quick weight loss that virtually every doctor in the world agrees upon. Exercise is safe, effective, and brings many more benefits to our lives than nutrition labels ever will alone. Exercise is fun, invigorating, motivating and the single most powerful way to improve our life and well-being. Reaching your ideal weight via a healthy and active lifestyle has been found to lower health risks and medical problems in 90 percent of overweight patients. In addition to the exercise benefits listed above, fit people are eight times less likely to die from cancer than the unfit, and 53 percent less likely to die from other diseases. Fit people are also eight times less likely to die from heart disease. Yes, nutrition labels are important insofar as we actually use them. But without a doubt, regular exercise is the most important piece of the puzzle and the best way to achieve rapid weight loss. Exercise is the safest way to achieve permanent fat loss, and when combined with a sound diet and nutrition program the body is turned into a virtual fat-burning furnace! Consumers would be wise to use the new tools from the fast food industry. Order the healthier items off the menu, pay attention to the nutritional labels, and above all else remember to participate in regular exercise.

In actual fact, herbs for infertility remedy are remodeled into most types which others would not typify as some thing organic. The most prevailing of that are the tablets, drugs, decoctions and powders which are as potent as those which are in their original modes.

Using all spices, you’ll find too few that have relaxing consider as accredited by the medication authority and additionally the health-related circles.

You can’t measure each morsel that passes your lips, but it’s a good idea to measure most foods and beverages till you get a feel for portion sizes.

It’s a supersized world out there, and most of the people are surprised to discover that their idea of a single serving is actually two or three.

If you’re into bells and whistles, there are food scales which can be preprogrammed with dietary info, in addition to scales that will maintain a operating total of your day by day food and nutrient consumption for you. But the only tools you actually need, nevertheless, are a simple and cheap gram scale, dry and liquid measuring cups, and understanding on how to interpret food labels.

Among all the talked about tools, reading content labels seems to be the simplest approach of determining the right kind of food to be bought in the supermarket. It allows you to make wise meals selections. By means of the “Nutrition Information” section in a selected product at the grocery, you can identify the quantity of serving sizes provided in that product.

With food labels, you’ll be able to clearly understand the quantity and sorts of vitamins which are offered in the item. Usually, it contains the information on saturated fat, sodium, total fats, fiber, and cholesterol quantity “per serving.”

However, understanding and reading these food labels may be very perplexing. A typical consumer would definitely ask what those numbers mean and how it will affect her diet intake if ever she is going to religiously comply with the serving information as stipulated on the food label.

To further have a thorough and more comprehensive understanding of the items stated within the product label, here is a list of things that you should know:

1. Serving size

That is the first listing you will see in a product label.

The quantity of servings stated in the meals label refers to the quantity of food people normally consume. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily suggest that it indicates your very personal quantity of food intake.

Furthermore, serving measurement determines the quantity of nutrients that enters the body. Which means if you’ll observe strictly what the serving measurement is, you’ll obtain the identical amount of nutrients in accordance with the serving size that was given within the label.

As an example, if the serving measurement says one serving size is the same as fifty four grams, that would mean you have to measure 54 grams and eat that and you have simply eaten one serving. So to speak, the amount of vitamins stated in the product label is the same quantity that has entered your body considering the truth that you’ve just eaten fifty four grams.

However, if you have eaten every thing, and the product label says that every pack is equivalent to 4 servings, it’s important to calculate the amount of nutrients that have entered your body. Which means if the product label says 250 calories per serving that means you have to multiply it by four to get the entire quantity of calories you have taken.

2. Vitamins

This refers back to the listing of available vitamins in a selected item. It is also where the nutritional claims of the product primarily based on the recommended daily dietary allowance are stated. Normally, the nutritional quantities are primarily based on both 2500-calorie diets and 2000 recommended dietary allowances.

In order to understand the numeric value of every entry, you must know that the “% daily value” that the food label signifies is really based mostly on how a particular food corresponds to the recommended daily dietary allowance for a 2,000 calorie.

If in the event you’ve bought a product that has a dietary allowance completely different from the 2000-calorie food plan, you just have to divide the stipulated amount by 2,000 and you will be able to identify the “%daily value” for the nutrients.

3. Ingredients

This refers to the listing of the substances that have been used to make the product. The itemizing is usually organized from the primary elements which have the higher amount by weight down to the smallest quantity. This simply means the precise quantity of the food includes the largest amount of the main ingredient or the first item and the minimum amount of the final ingredient.

4. Label claim

This refers to the kinds of dietary claims of a specific food item. For instance, if an product says it is sodium-free, it has less than 5 milligrams per serving or a low fats product truly contains 3 grams of fat or less.

Indeed, reading food labels may be very tedious and confusing. Nevertheless, when you get the hang of it, it will then be simpler so that you can watch your diet because you’ll be able to manage the quantity of meals that you eat.


If you want to find a better way to eat better that will give you tremendous results, you need to pick up a copy of the e-book How to Create a Lean and Healthy Body Quickly. Once you do this, you will learn the right way to eat and will soon develop a lean and healthy body. Just go to to learn more.
