Ever wondered why eating meat has been the lifestyle for most bodybuilders? Is is hard to find a body builder or fitness model from the retro years who were vegan. Is there something about eating meat & fish that make their diet better than plant based diet or is it otherwise?
Red meat may be high in saturated fat, but it’s also one of the best dietary sources of iron and vitamin B12. Iron and B12 are important for transporting oxygen throughout the body, producing energy, and maintaining a healthy nervous and digestive system. Iron deficiency is the world’s leading nutrition disorder, and vegans and vegetarians are at an increased risk for this condition. While only about 5 percent of meat eaters are B12-deficient, closer to 70 percent of vegetarians and more than 80 percent of vegans show signs of deficiency.
Meat Tastes Good.
A lot of vegetarians and vegans have chosen a plant-based diet for ethical or health reasons rather than because they don’t like the taste of meat. This is one of the reasons why meat substitutes like tempeh and seitan are so popular at vegetarian restaurants. Since meat is a very convenient and widespread feature of most restaurant menus, it can often be difficult for vegetarians and vegans to find substantial entrees that suit their diet.
The Take Away.
So are plant-based diets better? That depends. Well balanced, varied vegetarian and vegan meals have nutritional benefits that may help you live to a ripe old age with relatively few health problems, but it is also possible to follow a “plant-based diet” that is largely junk food. The bottom line is that a variety of nutrients from whole foods will help protect your health, whether those nutrients are sourced from meat, fish, or entirely plant-based goodies.
Wondering what kind of oils are good for your body and what kind of drinks you must include in your daily diet? Know that not all fats are bad for you. Good fats, like those that come from vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fish, are an essential source of energy.
Following is our take on essential oils and specialty drinks to include in your daily routine:
Essential Healthy Oils
Choosing to cook your foods in different types of oils can be quite beneficial for your system, which is something that a lot of people don’t realize. Simply by switching from regular vegetable oil to olive oil will give you more monounsaturated fat and polyphenols, which reduces cardiovascular inflammation. Avocado oil is another great component that can help to get rid of inflammation and has a variety of properties that are quite similar to olive oil.
Tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world and for good reason. Not only is it delicious and widely available, but it is also one of the healthiest things that you can consume on a regular basis. Try to take advantage of green tea as it helps to reduce the likelihood of suffering from heart disease, early aging, and it promotes a healthy digestive tract.
BONUS: Nuts and Seeds
As an important component of your every day diet and as a great snack, nuts and seeds can be integrated into relatively any meal. Whether you put them on top of a salad for lunch, or if you bring a bag of them to munch on throughout the day, some seeds and nuts to consider include: Sunflower Seeds, Almonds, Hazelnuts, Linseed, and Walnuts.
