The Myth of a Sad, Tasteless Healthy Dietby Garth Davis, MD on June 29, 2015
One of my friends sent me this.
It is funny, but the sad part is some people actually believe this. They think that eating a healthy plant based diet may make you live longer but why do that if you cannot eat a cheeseburger.
First off, if you have seen my pictures, the food I eat is delicious. There is a whole world of delicious plant based recipes. The variety is incredible. Also, the more you eat a natural diet the more sensitive your tastes become. An orange is the most beautiful tasting thing to me.
Meanwhile, while I used to love fast food, now the thought of ingesting a disgusting, oily hamburger could make me hurl (medical term).
Secondly, after eating a healthy plant based meal you feel great. No issues. No heartburn, no stomach aches, no fatigue.
Third, you feel great all the time. I have energy beyond what I could previously have imagined. I keep getting stronger, faster, and healthier. I feel like Benjamin Button, aging in reverse.
I don’t eat a plant based diet to live longer. I eat this way because it tastes great, makes me feel great, is great for the environment and is great for the animals.
