New NIH Study Published Jan 2021:
“Effect of a plant-based, low-fat diet versus an animal-based, ketogenic diet on ad libitum energy intake”
The plant based diet group lost more body fat and the keto group lost mostly water weight.
Even though the LFPB diet had higher insulin levels than the Keto diet, the Keto diet had greater glucose intolerance.
Note: this is one of the best controlled studies on diet I have ever seen,
“Further, all meals were prepared and provided for participants in an inpatient setting, which may make results difficult to repeat outside the lab, where factors such as food costs, food availability, and meal preparation constraints can make adherence to diets challenging. The tightly controlled clinical environment, however, ensured objective measurement of food intake and accuracy of data.”
Yup, locked in a building for the entire study. LOL!
NIH Study: (abstract only)
Strongly encourage you to watch the entire interview!
My short synopsis that does not do any justice to this interview:
The virus is not the enemy, they are necessary for our adaptation, our evolution.
Our true enemy, the true cause lies in our polluted planet, polluted air, glyphosate riddled and large scale animal Ag dependent food system, our pandemic level chronic disease rates and our disconnection from that natural world.
My short commentary:
What is behind this? Look into predatory capitalism and the economic forces standing to gain from our collective misery, diseased states, ceaseless wars.
Demand clean food, water and air.
Eat whole foods, mostly plants
Reconnect, connect daily with nature.
Move your body daily
Fight for a Green New Deal. We must end our addiction to oil.
End CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations)
End the construction of new oil pipelines.
End police brutality
End for profit prisons.
End discrimination in the work place.
Love yourself. Look within, seek out qualified support to help you work with trauma, your disconnection from your True Self.
Love one another. Especially those who are oppressed and dying at disproportional rates.
Black Lives Matter.
