A well researched article. I enjoyed reading it. But honestly why would anyone care whether or not Hitler was a vegetarian ? What does that have to do with anything ?
Is there a print frienly pdf like the Dr. McDougall site uses that will be available for this article and pyramid ?
So in 42 days this guy went from 287 pounds to 157 pounds ? A 130 pound weight loss in 42 days ?
That can't in any way be healthy.
Is he still alive ?
tominreston, I completely agree with you.
Articles like this just put vegetarians and vegans up for ridicule. This article cannot be taken seriously.
A 130 pound weight loss in 42 days defies anyone's intelligence regarding nutrition and science.
No posts published so far.
Great Food Pyramid! Thank you very much!
Bill, if you look at the guy he is nothing but a picture of health compared to his old self. If one feeds his body the foods the body is designed to eat, such as plant foods - amazing and beautiful things happen to one's body. He's alive and doing well. 20 pounds of what he was carrying was most likely water, as our bodies retain water when we drink coffee, eat acidic foods such as dairy and meat and basically brutalize our systems with junk. We've been vegan/vegetarians with 80% of our foods plant based for 20 years and I haven't had a cold, flu or any sickness in almost as long. No doctor visits for this healthy 54 year old.
Great story, and just shows you not only the benefits of a veggo or preferably vegan diet, but that there are people out there waiting for someone to help them - as the article said, serendipity, and the restaurant owners recognising an opportunity - that's why i am always ready to open my mouth and let people know the health, ecological and animal compassion benefits of changing
Unless there was medical intervention (such as liposuction) these claims look bogus. Losing 130 lbs. in 42 days equates to over 3 lbs. per day loss. (And the notion that "20 lbs. is water" is ludicrous.) In order to lose weight, you need to lose body fat, period. To burn 1 lb. of body fat requires 3500 calories above and beyond the work needed to burn the energy in a day's worth of food. At three lbs. per day this is 10,500 --PER DAY. Even at 1000 cals / minute (which is pretty extreme, maybe not even possible for someone in bad shape) this would mean 10 1/2 hours of medium to heavy cardio, daily. Sorry, I just don't buy it. Show me the daily caloric intake / expenditure / weight.
