    Suppliers ditch 'vegan' label to encourage meat eaters

    Post by graham64 on Sat Aug 25 2018, 00:14

    It has become the health trend of 2018, with an array of athletes and  celebrities ditching dairy and other animal products in favour of a vegan  lifestyle. 

    But it appears the health movement is increasingly facing a backlash - with  food producers ditching the word "vegan" and replacing it with "plant  based".

    Britain looks set to become the latest country to follow suit, according to  experts who say the moral finger-wagging associated with veganism is  putting people off.

    The reality is that most people that try a vegetarian diet don't stay very long. Either health issues or the body need for nutrients or taste make people abandon their diet. Much more for complete vegans. It's all a smoke screen, just like low fat calories diet to lose weight they just don't work.

    Some may say 2018 (so far) has been a funny sort of year!!!

    Both within our family, and friends, circles we have vegetarians, vegans, low carbers and 'everything in moderation' eaters !!! It sometimes seems that life and choices are getting more and more chaotic.

    Then Eddie gets his blood sugar meter out or has his HbA1c tests and his results are non diabetic …

    It just strengthens what I already know LCHF for diabetics and many who are not diabetic works, and keeps on working. Yes, it is our choice to live the LCHF lifestyle … I guess in 2018 it is still down to each and every one of us to choose what we want to eat.

    So what did you have for dinner tonight?

    Our meal was salmon with some broccoli cheese, peas and green beans ... did I also tell you about the lovely mushroom omelette we enjoyed for breakfast and the cheese and olives for a snack! Ooh yes, I also have some low carb mixed berries and double cream, just in case we wanted a dessert.

    All the best Jan

    I had two meals today, the first was smoked haddock slathered in butter with toasted almonds and thibkly buttered oatcakes, the second was a giant lamb chop with broccoli and a glass, OK two, of Malbec, and a couple more thickly buttered oatcakes just in case there wasn't enough fat on the chop.

    Thirteen years now, I lost most of my symptoms and most of my meds too.

    My vegetarian cousin hasn't done too badly probably because he eats eggs fish and cheese. One of his daughters was also vegetarian and built like a racing snake. She went vegan and is now quite plump and doesn't look healthy. Sad.

    hahahaha actually not that far from the truth: I remember an Oxford Scientific film called Moving Still, which I can't find on YouTube, and a later programme by David Attenborough, both using stop-frame photography which showed that plants behave, just a lot more slowly than animals.
