    Interesting video, the only problem is that they compared the vegan diet with normal diets which I assume were all probably pretty unhealthy and full of processed food which only shows that a vegan diet is healthy which is pretty obvious. It would be a lot more interesting to compare a vegan diet with other healthy diets but I believe there wouldn’t really be much difference, still would be interesting to see…

    Just to say, didn't think I could live without meat, fish, milk, cheese, eggs but had 8 TIA's , heart attack, blood pressure high, 170/110, and 56 years old. Specialist recommended vegan lifestyle, I laughed but at 19 stone 1lb thought Id give it ago, being on amlodipine, enalapril, 2x bisosoprolol, atorvastatin, lanzprozole, co-codomol salbutamol asthma spray, nitro lingual spray for angina. UNBELIEVABLE, Ive lost 2 stone in 3 months, blood pressure not above 130/85, no statins, no salbutamol, no nitro-lingual spray. Ive dropped one of my blood pressure tablets and more to drop soon. No asthma symptoms, no angina symptoms. More energy than I have ever had, best ive felt in 30 years and joined membership of local golf club. Just saying…. rookster44@hotmail.co.uk

    My sister went vegan and 3 days after she went vegan I went vegetarian. My dad decided a few days ago to change his diet to a whole food plant based diet. He is basically vegan but he wants to eat healthy. Not all vegan foods are healthy. I’ve been vegetarian for a little over a month now and it’s great. 🙂

    Wow…. I agree. As someone who has been on a carnivore diet all my life, not to mention the only person in my family who is now considering the vegan diet as a lifestyle (on day 11 of eating completely vegan-yay🙌🏽!) as I continued to research nutrition and health overall just as a blogger to share info with others, there is no doubt that the vegan diet is extremely beneficial for our overall health AND wellness. This has inspired me to now be back in school, pursing a degree to become a Dietitian-Nutritionist, through the Academy of Nurtionist and Dietetics to credibly spread the wealth of information regarding the vegan diet!Continue to encourage others! #ChangeLives one person at a time.

    been vegan for couple weeks now and my body instantly is getting more toned and muscle mass increased, also i have nothing against meat eaters I loved meat myself, but saying we are (meant) or (designed) to eat meat is ridiculous, we have all the herbivore traits (large intestine length, hands or hoofs for picking/grinding, blunt strong teeth for grinding plants, just like horses, elephants, rhino ect,) where as meat eaters (carnivore's/omnivores) have claws for tearing meat, sharp long teeth for stabbing, and short intestinal length

    For more than two million years we were primarily meat eaters. Only in the last 10,000 years did the human diet shift, with the cultivation of grains and legumes. But are we more suited to this diet lower in meat? In the last 10,000 years we’ve gotten smaller in stature and brain size. With a heavily grain- and sugar-based diet, we are suffering increased rates of obesity, cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis. We’re also experiencing alarming incidence of skin problems, heart disease, and inflammation of all kinds.

     I have to politely disagree with the anti-meat argument. Our genes were developed before the agricultural revolution, when we were not only meat eaters, but enthusiastic ones at that. On top of that, the human genome has changed less than 0.02% in the last 40,000 years. Our bodies were genetically programed for optimal functioning on a diet including meat, and that programming has not changed.

     There’s plenty of information circulating about why we shouldn’t eat meat. Here are some reasons why we should:

     We Were Created That Way

    By nature, humans are meat eaters, and our bodies are designed for it. We have incisors for tearing meat, and molars for grinding it. If we were meant to subsist on vegetables alone, our digestive system would be similar to that of the cow, with four stomachs and the ability to ferment cellulose in order to break down plant material.

     The degenerative health conditions that are prevalent now weren’t around when the cavemen were living off meat, vegetables, fish, nuts, seeds, and fruits. In hunter/gatherer societies, 45-65% of energy requirements were derived from animal sources, and heart disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes – the diseases that plague society today – were not a problem.With the introduction of grains and processed foods, these diseases reared their ugly heads at alarming rates.

     Stable Blood Sugar

    Meat helps keep blood sugar levels stable due to its fat and high protein content. Steady blood sugar is critical in preventing type 2 diabetes, as well as other chronic diseases. It also helps keep energy levels steady and creates a feeling of satiety between meals, reducing cravings for unhealthy foods. With stable blood sugar,you’re less likely to drool for fattening snacks and sweets between meals. Battle sugar cravings by eating more meat.6

     Muscle Growth

    You can work yourself to the bone trying to gain muscle or bulk up, but if you don’t nourish your body appropriately, you might as well toss your training schedule and start long distance running. You have to fuel your body with the right nutrients to achieve sufficient muscle repair and recovery to make gains.

     You can take protein supplements, but the best source of protein is meat. Meat also contains vitamins and minerals that aid in muscle growth like zinc, which assists in muscle repair, and iron, which boosts energy levels and combats fatigue. Meat also contains creatine, a nitrogen-containing compound that improves protein synthesis and provides muscles with energy, encouraging muscle gain.

     If meat’s positive – strike that, crucial – role in muscle growth isn’t enough, meat also helps burn fat. Meat has a high thermogenic effect because of its protein content, so that approximately thirty percent of its calories are burned off during digestion alone. Digesting carbohydrates produces only a six to eight percent increase in energy expenditure, while digesting the protein in meat typically produces a whopping 25 to 40 percent increase.

     Neurotransmitter Health

    People who don’t eat meat are especially vulnerable to neurotransmitter imbalances because of the absence of meat protein, which provides all of the essential amino acids human bodies need. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that regulate many of our functions, including physical, cognitive, and mental performance, as well as our sleep cycle, weight, and emotional states. Meat protein provides all of the essential amino acids human bodies need. People who don’t eat meat are especially vulnerable to neurotransmitter imbalances, which can result in problems like depression, anxiety, and hyperactivity.

     According to research conducted at the University of Graz, vegetarians are two to three times more likely than meat eaters to suffer from depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and somatoform disorders and syndromes.8 We rely on prescribed medication to cure some of these conditions, when the answer may be as simple as eating a juicy hamburger or tender chicken breast.
    Long-Lasting Energy

    Everyone has experienced that post-meal slump when caffeine is the only thing that can keep one’s head off a pillow. Simple carbs are broken down into sugar that our body burns through quickly, causing us to crash. Conversely, our bodies utilize the protein in meats for sustained, long-lasting energy. 

     Another critical component of feeling energized is the stimulation of orexin cells in the brain. The stimulation of orexin cells is directly linked to energy expenditure and wakefulness. Scientists at the University of Cambridge discovered that amino acids stimulate orexin cells more than any other nutrients do. Thus, consuming meat protein leads to burning more calories and more energy. Reduced activity in orexin cells has been linked to both weight gain and narcolepsy.

     In addition, meat is one of the best sources of iron. Iron deficits put you at risk for anemia and low energy, which is why anemia is a chronic problem for vegetarians. Pair meat with vegetables boasting a low glycemic index, and you’ll be feeling like the energizer bunny all day long.

     Essential Nutrients
    There are many nutrients in meat that are critical to overall health. While there are many sources of protein, meat is a great source of complete protein, containing all the amino acids our bodies needs, including the ones our bodies can’t produce.

     All B vitamins are found in greater concentration in meats than in plant sources, and vitamin B-12 can only be found in animal sources. The B vitamins are critical to health, especially mental health. Deficits in these vitamins can cause confusion, impaired senses, aggression, insomnia, weakness, dementia, and peripheral neuropathy.

    Enough said!
