The Most Important Reasons To Get Calcium From Non-Dairy Sources – By Author Brenda Davis | The Real Truth About Health

Brenda Davis offers fresh insights on the treatment of animals in food production and other industries, the latest findings on the health benefits of a vegan diet and expanded the information on phytochemicals, Brenda’s information is extensive in scope, yet manageable for anyone who wants to easily understand how to construct a nutritionally balanced plant-based diet.

Here are the latest findings on: using plant foods to protect against cancer, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses; obtaining essential protein without meat, eggs, or dairy products; discovering “”good”” fats and where to find them; meeting dietary needs for calcium without dairy products; understanding the importance of vitamin B12; designing balanced vegan diets for infants, children, and seniors; and making the most of vegan pregnancy and breastfeeding.

This is a sound blueprint to follow for better health for yourself and the planet.

Flashback Friday: Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death | Dr. Michael Greger | Nutritionfacts.org

Death in America is largely a foodborne illness. Focusing on studies published in peer-reviewed scientific medical journals, Dr. Greger offers practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse many of the top 15 killers in the United States.

DOCTOR’S NOTE

Every year I scour the world’s scholarly literature on clinical nutrition, pulling together what I find to be the most interesting, practical, and groundbreaking science on how to best feed ourselves and our families. I start with the thousands of papers published annually on human nutrition, and, thanks to a crack team of volunteers (and staff!), I’m able to whittle those down to about 3,000 studies, which are downloaded, categorized, read, analyzed, and churned into a few hundred short videos. This allows me to post new videos and articles every day, year-round, to NutritionFacts.org. This certainly makes the site unique. There’s no other science-based source for free daily updates on the latest discoveries in nutrition.

How Are Some Health Studies Manipulated To Influence The Public? | Dr. Walter C. Willett | The Real Truth About Health

Walter C. Willett, M.D., Dr. P.H., is Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Willett studied food science at Michigan State University, and graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School before obtaining a Masters and Doctorate in Public Health from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Dr. Willett has focused much of his work over the last 40 years on the development and evaluation of methods, using both questionnaire and biochemical approaches, to study the effects of diet on the occurrence of major diseases. He has applied these methods starting in 1980 in the Nurses’ Health Studies I and II and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. Together, these cohorts that include nearly 300,000 men and women with repeated dietary assessments, are providing the most detailed information on the long-term health consequences of food choices.

Dr. Willett has published over 1,700 original research papers and reviews, primarily on lifestyle risk factors for heart disease, cancer, and other conditions and has written the textbook, Nutritional Epidemiology, published by Oxford University Press, now in its third edition. He also has written four books for the general public. Dr. Willett is the most cited nutritionist internationally. He is a member of the National Academy of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences and the recipient of many national and international awards for his research.

Calorie Density for Weight Loss | Plantstrong.com

The coolest thing about understanding calorie density principles is that you can discard all the nonsense you’ve heard about dieting and start over with a clean slate. It’s liberating when you realize the reason America is overweight is because our diet is heavily composed of the most calorie-rich foods on the planet. This is a no-win proposition that guarantees weight gain and the promotion of chronic disease.

A much better—and more sustainable— approach to weight loss is this one: Eat mounds of food while taking in fewer calories and feeling satisfied and full!  (Need help with recipes and support on your journey? Join our free community!)

So, what does calorie-dense mean? Well, when it comes to weight control, the overall amount of calories in a particular food is less important compared to its calorie density, that is, the amount of calories in relation to its weight. For instance, a 3.5-pound melon has just 450 calories, while 3.5 pounds of Swiss cheese has more than 6,000 calories. Because people tend to eat a certain volume of food every day, regardless of calories, one of the primary reasons people gain weight is by eating too many high calorie-dense foods such as dairy, meat, and processed junk foods, and not enough low calorie-dense fruits, vegetables, beans, and intact whole grains such as brown rice.   This handy chart gives you a clear visual on what we’re talking about.

By predominantly eating foods to the left of the red line, you’ll be consuming meals that will fill you up without derailing your progress.

Here are some other reasons to be mindful of calorie density:

Liquid Calories. Drinking your calories can be the equivalent of sipping a Big Mac with a straw and not feeling any less hungry. Liquid calories, which provide no sense of satiety, are a major reason why diets inevitably fail. A soda here, a smoothie there, a glass of wine later, and all of a sudden you’ve taken in half your daily calories, you’re more hungry than ever, and you haven’t even touched your food yet!

Perhaps you’ve heard Rip say, “Don’t Drink Your Calories!” (short video here!)

High-Fat Foods. Fat contains the most calories (nine) per gram, so the more fat in your food, the more calories it has. It’s as simple as that. Animal products are, of course, high in fat—especially the Darth Vader of fats, saturated fat—so it’s no surprise eating them leads to weight gain. Most plant foods, on the other hand, are naturally low in fat and only contain the essential amounts our body needs to function optimally.

Processed Bread Products. These are some of the worst offenders when it comes to promoting overeating. Carbohydrates from refined, processed grains, such as bagels, bread, and crackers, have roughly three times the caloric density of unrefined, whole-grain foods like rice, oats, and potatoes.  Almost all the satiety-promoting fiber, which is only found in plants, is removed in these products, leaving you with empty, dense calories that won’t fill you up. That’s why you find yourself consuming an entire box of Wheat Thins, then heading back to the pantry for more food!

And Size Really Does Matter. Here’s what people don’t understand: Feeling full has nothing to do with a food’s caloric content, and everything to do with a food’s volume. Let’s repeat that: Feeling full has nothing to do with a food’s calorie content, and everything to do with a food’s volume. 

Let’s consider grapes vs. raisins…
