Ok here we go again. I know longer wonder why I a Doctor ( who’s supposed to know everything about health LOL) is confused about weight loss. I see other doctors are too. The latest this week is Bill Clinton and his new vegan life style. No meat, dairy,eggs or oils. I’m not blasting being vegan just this diet. Pasta and sugar are ok but not olive oil, avocado‘s and nuts. This I don’t understand. I fully agree we need a plant-based diet. That would include health fats like avocado’s and nuts. How healthy plant-based includes sugar and refined carbs is beyond me. This totally opposite the Dr Mercola diet. Basically no carbs or fructose as he likes to say. He even eliminates most fruit. I think both diets are extreme. I do agree something needs to change in this word. The SAD (standard american diet) is going to send us to an early grave for sure. How to change is still the question. As I try to figure this out for myself I’ll keep you posted. I have eliminated dairy for GI issues. I will continue my eggs and healthy fats and increase my veggies and whole grains. By the way I’m feeling better from my E. Coli infection. I went to health department yesterday. They did a questionnaire and was surprised I only ate out 3 times in 10 days. One was by accident because I left my lunch at home. I actually only had beef once that week that I can remember and my other family members ate that and aren’t sick. Cross contamination is the most likely possibility. Good thing I’m off next week on a staycation. I have to be cleared by health department before I can return to work.
