Put down the knife, and pick up a fork… it might be time to transition to a plant-based diet.
The debate continues! The more research I read and the more experts I interview, the MORE I understand the importance of decreasing animal protein. Specifically in the last few weeks, I have dramatically decreased my consumption of animal proteins. My goal is to eat whole, unprocessed food that hits all the colors of the rainbow. The focus is micronutrient dense food that fuels my body on a cellular level.
I recently interviewed Dr. Dan Witkowski. He is a plant-based medical doctor that started incorporating nutrition when he realized 10 years into his practice that his patients weren’t getting better with conventional means and medication. Could a decrease in animal protein be the cure to what ails you?
I know this interview will leave you feeling inspired to put down the knife, and pick up the fork. Plant-based doesn’t have to mean vegan! But when it comes to animal consumption, quality over quantity matters. And so does the amount.
Dr. Dan Breaks Down:
- What does plant-based really mean?
- Is plant based the same as vegan or vegetarian?
- What is a whole food, plant-based diet?
- How to free yourself of food labels
- Why restriction isn’t sustainable
- Should we avoid grains and gluten?
- Why we need to get away from labeling foods as “good” and “bad”
- What do you eat on a plant-based diet?
- How to get your family to make this transition with you
- Can you get into Ketosis on a plant-based diet
This is a really eye-opening approach to reducing animal protein, and a great one to dive deeper into. Want some tips to make it less expensive? Check out this article.
