  • A presentation by Jake Garvin.
    How can you eat to be so fit that you can run a marathon? What about Kenyans, Ethiopians, and the mysterious Tarahumara super-athletes? Were we “Born to Run?” Did we evolve as
    persistence hunters to eat meat? Are carbs good or bad? Where do you get your protein? Is saturated fat okay after all? What about coconut oil and soy? How can you lose fat and get fit? What foods can you eat to improve your running? Find out the secret! How in the world did Jake Garvin run a marathon carrying a hundred pound log, and a barbell!
    Jake will give the answers to these questions and more!
    J. “Jake” Garvin has a Bachelor of Arts degree (1986) in psychology including biopsychology in the biology & chemistry of the human brain, from Cornell University. He is a member of MENSA (in the top 2 percent of the population in IQ). At Cornell, he worked in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the renowned Lipid Laboratory of Donald B. Zilversmit. He co-authored “Fractal curves and complexity” (1987), published in the peer-reviewed journal “Perception & Psychophysics,” which is now used in modeling angiogenesis and tumor growth in cancer research. After graduation he worked as a computer consultant at NEC in Tokyo, and currently is a science and technology consultant in Honolulu. He started running the Honolulu Marathon in 2012 carrying an immense log of nearly 100 lbs., and has run every year since carrying a log, barbell, or cement blocks, to raise awareness that meat is linked to cancer, and to prove that vegans can not only have endurance, but great strength and muscle mass, too.

    great presentation apart from the fact that he hardly mentioned the actual diets! Whenever specifics came up he flipped over the slides and went into little detail of the food. A better title would be:: "Does the vegan diet help prevent disease and support athletes?"

    Vegan for the win.
    "&" if you see or hear anybody convey a pro animal protein comment, most likely it's coming from someone entrenched in animal agriculture. Science will win every........single........time.

      Animal agriculture pays for the national food guidelines & also pays them to say saturated fat instead of "animal" fat. Meat n dairy also paid for the
      A E T A.....which is basically a law that keeps animal processing facts hidden from the public. They don't want people to see the violence towards & the murdering of animals.

    In the Adventist Health Study 2, so far, the longevity of the 4 health conscious groups are comparable : 1 people who eat animal products about once a month, 2 seafood eaters, 3 vegetarians, 4 vegans. The health headlines from the adventists can be a bit misleading bec all of the 4 health conscious groups are called vegetarians in the headlines. A past speaker and vegetarian historian already mentioned that Albert Einstein was not vegetarian altho he had a quote praising vegetarians. Many vegan geniuses and preachers forget to mention that vegans should take vitamin b12 supplements.

      also, b12 deficiencies are more likely in people that drink alcohol, eat poor quality meat (most meat on the market!) and under a lot of stress and people that consume antibiotics (via drugstores, doctors or the meat that you eat that was fed them!). So a little research would have everyone running for b12 supplements if they were full of fear and bullshit. Vegans with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle have no need to worry. By the way, a liftetime's supply of b12 requirements is smaller than a regular pill.

      B12 synthesis is known to occur naturally in the human small intestine (in the ileum), which is the primary site of B12 absorption. As long as gut bacteria have cobalt and certain other nutrients, they produce vitamin B12.

      Well, I did see a video where a raw vegan uses a composting toilet to fertilize his garden. He believes the B12 in his poop becomes absorbed by the plants in his garden, so he believes he doesn't need supplements. I'd at least get my B12 levels tested if I were him.

      The position of T Colin Campbell on b12 seems to have evolved over time and most of his youtube videos or probably all of his youtube videos does not tell people to take b12 supplements. In one video, somebody asked about b12 and he refused to say that b12 supplements are needed. In one youtube video, T Colin Campbell says his wife is forcing him to take b12 supplements. Many raw vegans do not take b12 bec of the belief or strong desire to be 100% natural even though not everything natural is good.

      Well, in this article Campbell states, "I recommend a daily [B12] supplement for those people with a reduced intake of animal foods." nutritionstudies.org/12-questions-answered-regarding-vitamin-b12/
      Can you provide your source which led you to believe Campbell advises against taking B12 supplements?
      Moreover, Campbell started preaching the gospel of the Lard like most nutritionists when he started out. However, the science led him to conclude that a whole food, plant based diet is the most healthful. Unfortunately, many nutritionists still preach the gospel of the Lard even after they become aware of the health benefits of plant-based diets. We are lucky to have the few doctors and nutritionists out there who dare to speak against our deeply held beliefs and traditions of praising the Lard.
      You can praise the Lard all you like, but I've heard all the preaching before. It's impossible to live in the U.S. without being bombarded with messages that preach about the Lard's goodness.

    Instead of wasting time on reductionist nutrition studies which contradict each other, it might be a better idea to get to know the old relatives better to see what the healthy old relatives are eating. If most relatives died young, can check out what the healthy ethnic groups genetically related to are eating. It is probably healthy to eat mostly unrefined starch if the ancestors evolved on eating mostly unrefined starch for the last thousands of years. It is easy to cherry pick our evolutionary history to try to promote the vegan religion. We basically evolved from single celled lifeforms who decided to eat their neighbors. After the extinction of the dinosaurs, primates and lemurs evolved from small insectivores and many traditional diets still include insects. In a natural environment, it is hard for herbivores to avoid swallowing lots of insects since the insects like to sit on top of the plants. The main update is that pollution and radiation is probably increasing exponentially probably bec human population is probably increasing exponentially so probably better to eat low on the food chain. Unless nuclear wars and or global warming kill off most of the human population, there is probably not enough grass fed meat to feed everyone.

      +colonyofcells del machine Maybe you could actually watch the video. There was so much science (not religion) it was falling off the table.
