“Why I’ve changed my diet”
- by admin
“I’m not a vegan, but I’ve been a big fan of organic dairy products.
I like to eat them in moderation, and I’m trying to avoid products with a lot of sugar and salt.”
That’s what a new blog post from the dairy industry argues, pointing out that there’s a good reason to avoid sugar and other dairy products in general.
“It’s not the sugar that’s bad, but the fat,” the company wrote.
“Dairy products contain a lot more saturated fat than meat or poultry, which can lead to heart disease and diabetes.”
The blog post comes on the heels of a study published in the Journal of Nutrition that found people who were given a “vegan” or “low-fat” diet were 50 percent less likely to die from coronary heart disease.
The report also found that people who ate fewer dairy products and had more vegetables were about 60 percent less prone to developing type 2 diabetes.
“The good news is that the fat content of dairy products is very low,” the blog post reads.
“That’s the good news.
The bad news is the fat that is in dairy products contains a lot less saturated fat.”
The researchers behind the study didn’t specify what saturated fat was in the diet, but according to the American Dairy Association, “a lot of saturated fat comes from corn, soy, palm oil, and other sources.”
The American Heart Association’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) recommends a “low fat” diet that includes dairy, eggs, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products like almond milk.
While a “moderately low fat” (and “low saturated fat”) diet is more recommended for women and men, it’s generally not recommended for vegans, vegetarians, and vegans who don’t eat meat.
In fact, the U.S. government does not consider vegans and vegetarians to be a health threat.
“Vegan diets are associated with a number of serious health risks,” a USDA statement on the study read.
“Many of the studies linking vegan diets with reduced risk of disease were conducted in the early 1970s and the information is still not widely known.”
Still, the FDA does recommend a vegan diet, and the agency does recommend people with diabetes and high blood pressure eat fewer calories than people who aren’t.
“If you’re a vegan and you have diabetes, the recommendation is to reduce the amount of carbohydrate you consume, to limit saturated fat intake, and to eat more vegetables,” the FDA wrote.
But, it continues, “if you are diabetic and you eat more carbohydrate than you burn, you could have insulin resistance.”
This isn’t the first time vegans have been criticized for their diets.
In 2014, a report by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, which advises the FDA on food safety and nutrition, stated that “dairy is a food that is low in fiber, contains high amounts of protein and fat, and has a high level of cholesterol.”
The report added that it is not necessary to consume any type of dairy product, and that people with high blood sugar or other health issues should “avoid dairy products.”
However, the report also recommended that “the most common foods in the U, especially dairy products” be avoided.
“There are no nutritional benefits associated with dairy consumption,” the report stated.
“Most dairy products are highly processed and have high levels of saturated and trans fat, as well as other harmful nutrients.
They contain high levels to cholesterol and blood sugar.”
In 2015, a vegan blogger named Jennifer Hesse wrote about the lack of vegan food on her blog, “Eat This,” which she describes as a “healthy alternative to the ‘vegan’ diet.”
The post was a response to the recent research showing that dairy consumption in general can cause a host of health problems.
“I have found that the only foods that are actually low in saturated fat and cholesterol are dairy products,” Hesse writes.
“And those foods are often dairy products that are high in sugar, salt, and fat.”
According to Hesse, the research showed that people should avoid eating a variety of dairy-containing foods because they are “generally bad for you.”
In her post, she writes that people can go vegan or vegetarian for a variety (like whole grains and dairy) and still be healthier than someone who eats meat.
She writes that “vegans can still have healthy relationships with meat and dairy and can enjoy all the health benefits of the two.”
She also points out that vegans are “more likely to be vegetarian, and even vegan, than non-vegans,” so if you’re not sure whether you’re vegan or not, “it’s still worth it to try a vegan food or a vegetarian one.”
As Hesse notes, “I don’t think there’s any doubt that vegan diets are healthy, and are more healthful than non
