Truth About Plant Oils Healthy

The Whole Truth About Plant Oils

There’s a new trend among fitness and health gurus which basically labeling completely innocent foods as dangerous. I already covered how soy, once the rightful darling of the health-conscious, is now being treated as veritable poison by unscrupulous marketers. This underhanded marketing campaign has worked so well that the word “soy” itself has become almost a dirty word in some circles. The power of propaganda in a nutshell. The new food that is facing the wrath of these people is plant oils. Yes, like the kind you cook with. Absurd? You would think so, but we’re living in an age […]
Pocket Guide to Veganism

Pocket Guide for New Vegans

It isn’t hard to go vegan. In fact, it’s never been easier. There are so many tasty meat and dairy replacements that even major fast food chains and supermarkets are stocking this stuff. You can replace ground beef with Gardein beefless crumbles, chicken with Quorn products and the Boca “turkey” burgers taste just like regular burgers. No need to eat any animal. Meat eaters cannot tell the difference and neither can most vegans. Also Field Roast Italian sausage is really good, too. There are so many alternatives. I have had several people ask me about plant based, dairy free eating. […]
Humans Are Solar Powered

Humans are Solar Powered: Understanding The Root of Health

Mastering your own health begins with an understanding of what the roots of true health are to begin with, and one of these roots is that humans are solar creatures. Everyone knows that we gain energy (calories) by eating food. Basic health classes in school do a poor job of actually explaining what real food is, and the energy dynamics of food intake. What they also fail to mention is that physical calories are only one part of a much more complex picture. This is why I have begun placing a huge emphasis on viewing the world holistically: you cannot […]

Vegans Don't Need Supplements

Why Most Vegans DON’T Need Supplements

One of the hottest topics on any vegan blog or social media account always seems to be supplements. There’s this bizarre belief in the community that being vegan means you’re going to have subpar nutrition to some degree, that you’ll be lacking in your diet without animal products. It truly seems to permeate a large part of the community as a whole. Some people take supplementing as gospel, as if vegans who don’t supplement are “doing it wrong,” or are even unhealthy. Let’s clear up these misconception, because this issues goes right to the heart of what veganism is all […]
Carnivore Movement Dangerous Trend

Carnivore Movement: The Truth About a Dangerous Trend

As veganism and plant-based diets grow in popularity and effectiveness, we were bound to see increasingly absurd diets formed in an attempt to “counter” them. The Carnivore Diet is the new iteration of the Paleo and Keto diets, and effectively states that meat should make up the bulk of one’s diet, and is our optimal diet for losing weight and building muscle. Let’s get one thing out of the way. A lot of people involved in the “Carnivore” scene like to refer to themselves as carnivores and the diet as a whole as “living like a carnivore.” This couldn’t be […]
Natural Diet Veganism

Our Natural Diet

Diets often come up in conversations of health, and yet rarely do we speak about our natural diet. Regardless of how beneficial or plausible a diet may be, all of them are inferior to the diet that caters to our biology. What is a Frugivore? Animal Protein is Poisoning Us Eating For Health    It’s hard to take some of these diets seriously sometimes, because of how outlandish they are. There’s the South Beach diet, the tragically awful Atkins diet, diets centered around one’s blood type, eating filling foods to decrease hunger, and even ones that require starving the body […]
Healthy Eating Real Weight Loss Cure

Healthy Eating is the Real Weight Loss Cure “They” Don’t Want You to Know About

Weight loss is a massive industry. We’re talking billions upon billions of dollars annually. Yet, here’s something to think about: we’re in an “obesity epidemic,” with more and more people sliding into disease and discontent because of their weight. So we can conclude that to a large degree, the weight loss industry is a sham. It preys on people, people who are genuinely looking for answers and a cure, but instead find nothing but large medical bills and empty promises. The industry is full of charlatans, and to a lesser degree, misguided health enthusiasts who really do think eating less […]
