Vegan Diet IS Healthy – If You Do it Right

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Another self-claimed health expert has announced that the Vegan Diet is not healthy over a long period of term.  And how would she know?

Here’s the deal – when done right, a vegan diet makes a fantastic detox diet in the short term. Scads of people have switched from a junk food diet of processed and fast food, replaced it with a vegan diet full of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and legumes and have seen their health improve drastically. All those foods are incredibly healthy superfoods! And the vast majority of people in the Western world would do well to abide by that sort of a diet for a few weeks or months.  A Vegan Diet is Not Healthy

Never trust anyone who starts a paragraph with “Here’s the deal”.  It’s code for – I don’t know what I am talking about.  When done “right” the vegan diet is the best diet.  What “right” is – that is the question!  Read my 7 Component Health Protocol to see what the best diet it.  In short, a broad array of fruits and vegetables that is anchored with taking sufficient amounts of spirulina and chlorella.

But butter from grass-fed, pastured cows is rich in saturated fats, vitamin A, buytric acid, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA – a powerful cancer fighter), and lauric acid. Grass-fed, pastured beef itself is also rich in these same nutrients, as well as being a fantastic source of protein, amino acids, and vitamin B12 – which vegans must take as a supplement (a required nutrient our bodies don’t create – we must get it from animal sources).  A Vegan Diet is Not Healthy

Here we go with someone promoting butter again and trying to tell us that it’s PD_butteractually good for us.  I would suspect that she has been taking health advice from Paula Deen.  Sufficient amounts of protein can be found in Chlorella and Spirulina.  More disease comes from eating cooked animal protein than any other source other than dehydration, people simply do not drink enough water.   But here is another person without any experience with the Vegan Diet to tell us different.  Chlorella and Spirulina are also excellent source of B12 can be absorbed by the body.

Omnivores Healthier Than Vegetarians in Indigenous Cultures.  A sad commentary on the state of health in the Western world with our plastic, packaged, chemical-filled foods, but a true insight into the path to optimal health – it includes animal foods!
A Vegan Diet is Not Healthy

 Only if you completely ignore Chlorella and Spirulina, the most powerful foods on Earth.

    Thank you for your enlightening articles. I must refer your info on Lucerne. I used to eat 90-100% raw. But like hot soups, cooked beans, esp. in winter, so now I am reading only 60-70% raw. I do the Master Cleanser each quarter. Think I’ll reduce cooked food intake after my Jan. cleanse. Jeff Primack talks about certain cooked foods that supply phytochemicals that are less tasty in their raw state, such as okra and bitter melon as well as asparagus. I have not had bitter melon, but I don’t like raw okra and raw asparagus is only palatable to me fermented. My homegrown organic okra was not even good fermented.

    Oops. That’s lycopene, not Lucerne. Swype at work.
