The Vegan Diet Episode! Pros & Cons of Being Plant-Based, The Environmental Impact, Keto, & More! | Podcast Episode #3
In this episode that we did for our podcast, The Hart of Health, we talk about the vegan diet! Since Jonathan decided to do a vegan diet challenge back in February, we thought that the vegan diet would be a great topic for our podcast. I know I am sharing this on the website a bit late, as we recorded it months ago, but rather late than never. This is what we talked about on the podcast:
Joané’s experience trying a plant-based diet a few years ago.
Mikhaila Peterson’s experience on the carnivore diet and how certain foods affect her body.
The health challenges that we did in January and February
Jonathan’s experience with trying a low-fat, high-carb plant-based diet
Eating a lot of fat and carbs at the same time.
The things we do like about the vegan way of eating.
Challenges people can face when on a vegan diet.
The importance of experimenting with your diet to learn what works for you.
Eating a whole foods diet versus a lot of junk food before going plant-based.
Inflammation caused by overeating.
Your body’s rest and digest system.
The importance of finding balance in your diet.
Eating too many grains and legumes when you are on a vegan diet.
Consuming too much fruit and sugar when you are on a plant-based diet.
Being too ideological on a vegan diet.
Being open-minded when it comes to your diet.
Finding the right diet for you.
Going vegetarian instead of vegan.
Choosing to go on a low-carb or vegan keto diet.
Eating enough calories when on a vegan diet.
Being forced to take supplements when on a plant-based diet.
Buying locally sourced produce in order to help the environment.
The environmental impact of being on a vegan vs a carnivore diet.
The power of cutting out processed foods, shopping less, and reducing food waste in order to help the environment.
