T Colin Campbell - author of The China Study - writes on diabetes and a plant-based diet: ‘Unfortunately, misinformation and ingrained habits are wreaking havoc on our health. Our habit of eating hot dogs, hamburgers, and French fries is killing us. Even Dr. James Anderson, who achieved profound results with many patients by prescribing a near-vegetarian diet, is not immune to habitual health advice. He writes, “Ideally, diets providing 70% of calories as carbohydrates and up to 70g of fibre daily offers the greatest health benefits for individuals with diabetes. However, these diets allow only for one or two ounces of meat daily and are impractical for home use for many individuals.” Why does professor Anderson, a very fine researcher, say that such a diet is “impractical” and thereby prejudice his listeners before they even consider the evidence?
Yes, changing your lifestyle may seem impractical. It may seem impractical to give up meat and high-fat foods, but I wonder how practical it is to be 350 pounds and have Type 2 diabetes at the age of fifteen, like the girl mentioned at the start of this chapter. I wonder how practical it is to have a lifelong condition that can’t be cured by drugs or surgery; a condition that often leads to heart disease, stroke, blindness, or amputation; a condition that may require you to object insulin into your body every day for the rest of your life.
Radically changing our diets may be “impractical,” but it might also be worth it.’
Went home ( Birmingham, Alabama ) this last weekend, and my boyfriend did the Xterra going on @oakmountainstatepark.
That’s the park I ran almost every other day for a year - so I had to at least do the 5k. The trails were beautiful and I miss all the trees sometimes, but I finally accepted I just don’t love running anymore. So I’ll keep to the 3-5 mile runs one to two times a week but I’m not going to focus on it or feel guilt about it anymore. I have so many other fitness endeavors that I love.
Lifting, cycling, yoga, hiking, etc. Those are the things I’m enjoying right now - and have been enjoying, but sometimes when you’ve done a particular thing for a long time.. it’s hard to let go. But it’s not worth it if you aren’t into it. Allow yourself to try new things and adjust as needed 💕
