99: The Levels of Veganism

99: The Levels of Veganism

Raw Living Food Specialist, Nick Ferguson was a guest on Episode 9 over a year ago, and today he's back to talk about some of the "levels" of veganism. In short, here's the breakdown:
Vegan: All-encompassing; anyone who doesn't consume or use animal products
Plant-Based: This one has been skewed a bit over time, but usually means that the person is eating all, or mostly all vegan, but doesn't necessarily adopt the principles of veganism off the plate.
Whole-Food Plant-Based: A lifestyle where one only eats plants in their whole form; nothing processed, no junkfood. Sorry guys, no Oreos or Beyond Patties here!
Raw Vegan: A vegan who doesn't eat foods (usually) above 104 degrees Fahrenheit. The reasoning behind this is that essential enzymes in foods are killed during the cooking process of foods.
Raw Living Culture Vegan: Wait, what? Yup, there's another level to veganism, and probably the healthiest any human can live!

Check out this episode to hear all about Raw Living Foods; Plus, how (and why) Nick chooses to eat this way!

97: Young at Heart

97: Young at Heart

Vegan of 41 yrs, Dr. Joel Kahn is one of the world's top cardiologists and best selling authors. According to the CDC, about 610,000 Americans die from a heart attack EVERY YEAR. That’s one in every four deaths! Heart disease has also been rated as the leading cause of death for both men and women. In addition, every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack, and of these, 525,000 are first heart attacks, and 210,000 are repeated. What’s even more alarming? A lot of this can be prevented! In fact, did you know that some nations don't even have a word for "heart attack"? This is because heart disease is RARELY genetic, but rather a product of our lifestyles! Dr. Kahn mentions a study that was done in Sweden and the Netherlands with a sample size of 25,000 participants. Various questions were asked regarding the participants' lifestyle choices. Then another 20 years later, the analysts researched who was alive, who died, who had a heart attack, what kind of medical procedures were performed...

After the study they found that if you follow a few simple steps, you can absolutely avoid a heart attack about 85-90% of the time (only 3-4% of Americans meet this criteria!):

  • 1st: Don't smoke
  • 2nd: Men, your waistline is less than 40 inches, women, less than 35
  • 3rd: Walk at least 30 minutes per day
  • 4th: Drink 1-4 alcoholic drinks per week (Helps the blood flow. More than 7 is counter-productive)
  • 5th: Sleep more than 7 hours per night
  • 6th: Eat 5 or more servings of fruits or vegetables every day
