Flexitarianism, in company- a switch
The American table is typically laden with fries, sausages, and processed foods (cold cuts), potatoes, steaks pots roasts that sum up to a cholesterol and carbohydrates load up. It accounts for the $245 billion total cost spent for diabetes and $108.9 for coronary heart disease diagnosed Americans.
Facts about Flexitarian diet its “cousin” – pure vegetarian diet-
The food consumes mostly fruits and vegetables totally eliminating fish, eggs, nuts, grains among a few. Experts say that while it does reduce fat and fat containing product like fish and meat, a depletion of protein is accounted for. The non- inclusion of grains found beneficial in some other diets is looked at as a weakness in the solo vegetarian diet. Eaters in this diet scheme eat in raw form, but cooked ones are not entirely abandoned. The American vegans account for the consumption of pre-made products that have pulled huge revenues in the food industry. Time constraints in the food preparation that are standard alibis lead to summaries like this:
- Eating the same veggies each week
- Dependence on processed vegan food like vegan hot dogs, vegan pizzas, vegan burger, vegan meat rolls which when evaluated, content is laden with sodium as the preservative
- Eating fresh fruits and veggies fresh from the garden or fresh from the farmer’s market but eaters fail to validate other vegan food that would have made the diet, not calcium, or B-12 deficient.
- Getting rid of protein gives way to protein malabsorption
The arguments about the vegans staying solo on greens and fruits entirely abandoning protein invite Flexitarian diet’s “relatives” to come to the rescue. The offer is a little help from protein. Recent surveys state that even pure vegan diet does not guarantee cancer protection and worst, the prevention of diseases. By eliminating protein and grains, (studies similarly show), pure vegans are not any less free from diabetes. The diet has been evaluated consistent with significant levels of high glycation end products that are precursors to kidney and heart diseases. In short, is there truth to the claim that pure vegetables and fruits will spare one from the diseases that most Americans are afraid of?
