My entire family, 4 boys hubby and me have all recently taken the path of whole foods , plant based diet. Anxiety? depression? are you serious? I have never felt better both physically and mentally in my life! I loved meat, but my health was faltering. Since halting the meat and dairy intake 1 month ago, I am more active, find myself laughing and smiling more, just plain happier than before. Did I mention I've lost 20lbs? Perhaps it's because my entire body isn't being plagued with the horrible side effects meat has on your body? Either way, I would like to see who the women are that were chosen..and if this study was 'funded' by a company in connection with meat distribution companies.

Meat is good for your health. It's abusing meat that's bad for you. Like medicine, if taken too much and too often it can be harmful. Going vegan does NOT prolong your life or make you healthier in the long run. What you are feeling now are the results of not abusing your body by giving it too much meat. What you should do not is gradually phase back in the meat. Eat meat only once 4 days out of the week and red meat only once out of the 4. You will still feel great and there will be no "down side" to your diet.

Eat only 4oz of meat when you do eat it and eat meat only 4days out of a week. You will still feel great, loose weight and won't be deprived. There are plenty of overweight vegans. It's not the lean meat that's making people fat, it's the abuse of grains in the form of breads (including pasta), corn products and also processed sugar. If you practice portion control, you can eat meat and still feel great. The key is to never get Full. Stop at not hungry aka satisfied and there should always be more veggies on your plate than anything else.
