    The process of abandoning animal products has shown me yet more ways that people and our government are out of touch with reality. I've had no social cost. My health is greatly improved from the lifetime of a high protein diet. And it's far easier to prepare than dealing with meat. This has shown me just how damaging capitalism is to our health and intelligence. It's no wonder our choices of presidential candidates in 2016 were between a cheater and a buffoon.

    Love to see you such dynamic! My wish is to be so active if I get to that age... so far, I am doing more than most people my age which is sad because everyone I know my age has been hospitalized, is on medications or already diseased. No matter what I tell them they think I am an anomaly. Best of all is that I don't measure foods, no need to find out how much this or that as long as i eat fresh is has been working for me, my husband and teen son for the last 4 years. We are healthy unprocessed vegans and we do fast often. We are the strongest to our ages among others. We workout over 2 hours almost daily. I am getting muscles, son and husband have huge muscles on arms and legs now and when people ask how they get muscles; they answer: it is kale and spinach :) I make these mega 1 little of protein smoothies for breakfast where I put at least 1lb of kale or spinach plus oats, banana and whatever sweet fruit is on season or simply adding dates and nuts.

    I loved this talk. 80 years old! One thing about going vegan is to check out The Starch Solution because you can eat a lot of potatoes without oil/dairy which is very satisfying and tasty with fries, hash browns, mashed, etc. Vegans can scare off people with quinoa and kale so this is a great transition food.

    That sounds like a big change in the diet there in the wrong direction.

    Thanks, based at Bangalore, India, conditions gettin' worse day by day, less veg restaurants, meat shops increasing, Bangalore s silicon capital of India (IT sector), so d way thingz hav turned up is obvious, globalization, more opportunity, high inflation, more purchasing power, man realizes 'natural food' is too cheap n inferior to consume, its a FACT !!
    I m one of d only 5 veggies at an office of 100 employees n that too in India, cant still believe, as compared to say, 5-8 yrs back !!!!

    Its amazing how we get less than 50% of the natural veggies n fruits in India. The vendors haven't even heard such names as broccoli, parsley etc. Forget about Kale !!
    Ofcourse, u get broccoli at 3-4 stores in the entire city but only on pre-ordering !!!
    I'm literally amazed at how man is going towards processed foods and their new brands, and on forgetting natural raw foods.....
    India is now turning non-veg, how yo all know, tough to even get our normal veg foods unlike before !!

    Unless all you eat all day is green salads, then it is unlikely you need to add oil or fat to your salads. The study usually quoted to support adding oil to salads was funded by a salad oil manufacturer and glossed over the fact that you don't need to eat the fat on the salad in order to get the benefit. Other fat containing foods in the same meal or even at later meals on the same day will work. But if you want to add fat to the salad itself, try nuts, seeds, or avocado instead of oil.

    but we've been learnt to eat salads with olive oil because vitamins from vegis wont dissolve without the oil. Is it true? Can I eat salad without any oil in it?

    you can fry foods using a very small amont of water in the pan. try it.
    failing that, i would recommend using using coconut oil.

    HARRISMDW001 6 tahun yang lalu

    One cultivar of rapeseed is also called Canola (Canada Oil). While it has an LA/ALA ratio of 2 (safflower is 746, flax is .25) it is nevertheless 100% of Calories from fat and is the fatty equivalent of white sugar - empty Calories.

    I can only trace the use of vegetable oil back to Egypt ~ 3500 BC. It's emergence as a major Calorie source circa ~ 1910 AD (Proctor and Gamble) may be a disaster of the same magnitude as the increased intake of animal source food.

    I know you were joking; I never include overt fats; I simply have a biochemical background and foundation.

  • Daniel Ananda Alexander
    Daniel Ananda Alexander 6 tahun yang lalu

    it is ok, but it is the same principle, it will, at some point, form trans fat, poly saturated acids are highly unstable, extra virgin coconut oil cannot form trans fat.

  • Daniel Ananda Alexander
    Daniel Ananda Alexander 6 tahun yang lalu

    None hydrogenated coconut oil or butter is the only oil which evaporates prior to forming trans fat. I love Dr. Gregger, but it is not stressed which kind of coconut oil he is referring to, regardless, it is a well established fact that none adulterated coconut oil does not produce Trans fat due to the stable medium long fatty acid chains, at 170 degrees celsius; the oil simply evaporates instead of forming transfat which will leak into your food. Personally; I don't use oil at all.

  • Daniel Ananda Alexander
    Daniel Ananda Alexander 6 tahun yang lalu

    True, and the jury is still out with regard to coconut oil, if you are going to fry, however, coconut is by far, the most preferable material, since transfat is so dangerous.

  • vshvideo

    I agree, but I think it is less confusing to avoid statements like "there is enough protein in fruit to sustain humans" when it would have been just as easy to say a varied fruit diet has...", its sort of like saying "vegan diets are healthy". Some are, some aren't.

  • Daniel Ananda Alexander
    Daniel Ananda Alexander 6 tahun yang lalu

    You may be correct. We simply do not know, it is, however, far from certain that someone would easily experience a protein deficiency; by eating just apples for an extended period, and regardless, eating only one type of fruit would hardly be considered a proper diet for an extended period, making such assertions irrelevant for the sustainability of well planned primarily frugivorous diet.

  • Daniel Ananda Alexander
    Daniel Ananda Alexander 6 tahun yang lalu

    Yes! never heat flax seed oil! Flax oil has a most sensitive fatty acid structure. You are forming transfatty acids by doing so; stored in the refrigerator to avoid the accumulation of rapid rancidity; it is that sensitive. The only safe plant based oil is coconut (or preferably use water),coconut oil in moderation may be acceptable; the only plant based oil that cannot generate transfat. A small amount of refrigerated Hemp oil in salads, may be fine, yet you can make dressings without oil.

    2000 calories of raw apple would give you only 10 grams of protein, while 2000 calories of banana would give you 24 grams of protein. So it would seem like not all fruits would meet even the low end of the 19-40g range you mentioned.

  • Daniel Ananda Alexander
    Daniel Ananda Alexander 6 tahun yang lalu

    That's a very good question; to which I cannot give a definitive answer, and neither can other researcher, the "official" recommendations are, in any case, based on extreme and hypothetical scenarios. Research seems to indicate that anything between 19-40g being sufficient, we simply do not know; with any certainty, but we do know that if people consume enough calories; it is practically impossible to have a protein deficiency, within a wholefood context (disregarding 2000 calories W sugar).

    WHO recommend 3% min. it´s almost impossible to not get enough protein unless you starve yourself or u know exactly what u are doing and u really want it ;)

  • vshvideo
    vshvideo  6 tahun yang lalu

    What do you think the minimum protein need is?

  • Daniel Ananda Alexander
    Daniel Ananda Alexander 6 tahun yang lalu

    Yes, but look into how the methodology of calculating protein requirements, see for instance the seminal and authoritative WHO report, and you will notice the tremendous uncertainty with regard to human protein requirements, actually there is no disease related solely to a protein deficiency, it is seen only in combination with general malnutrition. The less protein you eat the more your body simply recycles amino acids, until a certain point. 56 grams is practically speaking; a random number.

  • vshvideo
    vshvideo  6 tahun yang lalu

    Using the USDA database and assuming a daily calorie requirement of 2000 calories, and the USA RDA for protein of 56 grams for men, then common fruits fall short on protein:
    29 oranges would give you about 2000 calories and 37 grams of protein,
    15 extra large bananas would give you about 2000 calories and 25 grams of protein.
    17 large apples would give you about 2000 calories and 10 grams of protein.

    Theres enough protein in fruit to sustain humans, with or without nuts.

    regarding fruitarians and protein deficiency; nuts are considered to be fruit that's why they're usually not deficient of any protein
