:-)) Sandy CONSISTENCY IS KEY, WATER IS ESSENTIAL!
You only fail if you quit trying.
I can be brave when learning or trying something new I shall be bold by pushing myself to the next level I can be fierce by being determined in setting my goals and reaching them I shall give a full 100% of me and feel FABULOUS about the woman I am
I have nothing against vegetarians and vegans either. One of my friends who will not eat any meat protein, milk, eggs, fish, got a terrible skin condition.
Now she was eating like you are suppose too, grains, legumes, fruit, vegetables. She seem to be doing everything right. However she got so bad they had to put her on lots of vitamins to clear her up and it took a long time. The Doctor wanted her to a least eat fish and she would not.
She ate as much organic as she could. Don't know what happened but her body was just not recovering the nutrients it needed from her diet. Resulting in poor tissue growth.
I like Dr Mercola and I think you are right we only need a little meat. Some animal products in our diets go a long way.
If you ever get a chance read the book The Body Electric by Robert O. Becker, M.D. and Gary Selden. It discusses the frequency of the foods we eat and what effect is has on the body. Very interesting.
As some of you may know, I am trying to eat a more RAW FOOD diet. But, I am not too interested in becoming VEGAN. Not that there is anything wrong with being vegan or vegetarian, but I enjoy my eggs, fish and dairy... Anyhow, here is a copy (for anyone interested) in a FRESH look at a new food guide: www.honestfoodguide.org/downloads/21 40 7.1_HonestFoodGuide.pdf
I might add that "I strongly disagree with their pro-vegan and anti-meat and eggs agenda." Dr Mercola
I agree with Mercola, but I also agree that LESS meat and MORE RAW is better. Mark Bittman really puts it well. He calls it "LESS-MEATENARIASM" (sp?)
