Health and Fitness on a Whole Food Plant Based Dieted Diet
The idea of not eating animal prodcts is nothing new – Pythagoras was an early advocate of a plant-based diet – but so many of us were brought up to believe that the maintenance of health and fitness can only be achieved on a diet based around animal protein. Many omnivores believe that it is impossible to remain healthy on a diet of only plants!
We now have incontrovertible evidence that this is entirely incorrect – indeed it is becoming clear that the healthiest of diets is a Whole Food Plant Based Diet.
This means a diet based 100% on plants – and they should be consumed in a form that is as close as possible to how they were grown and harvested. It should include little, if any processed or refined products – for example, no added sugar or oil.
In this talk, I will outline some of the evidence for this.
