    Vegan or Paleo? What's Right For You?

    Vegan or Paleo? What's Right For You?

    Whether to include animal products in your diet or not is a common factor people consider when figuring out what to eat. At the Academy of Culinary Nutrition we are supportive of and inclusive of all dietary styles. We respect that some people will thrive on a vegetarian diet or vegan diet, and others are more balanced when they include animal-sourced protein.
    In this episode of the Today Is the Day Podcast, Meghan and Josh compare the vegan and Paleo diets, sharing:
    - how to make sense of the nutritional research on the vegan and Paleo diets
    - the difference between processed vegan and Paleo diets and their whole food versions
    - how sugar consumption, meat quality and ultra processed foods affect our health when following vegan or Paleo diets
    - whether the benefits of a vegan diet derive from the lack of animal products or the presence of a ton of veggies
    - a brief discussion of the ketogenic diet and its impact on health
    Plus, why our diets need to evolve based on our individual emerging needs and objectives!

@patsytelpner ,

Important to everyone.

Especially in the situation we all find ourselves in. This is information everyone needs right now. You will not find it anywhere else. We need to know how you can be as healthy and as strong as possible so that even if you get sick you have the strength and resilience within your own body and mind to be able to recover.

Grifters of the highest order

Two incredibly rich, white and privileged people try to get even richer selling their “fixes” to the masses, which boils down to snake oil and woo woo with a little bit of common sense thrown on top to come across as more reasonable. Please people, get advice from real professionals, not social media hacks who end up trying to sell their own “programs” to you for thousands of dollars. And for the love of god, get vaccinated when you can.

Great Topics

Things that everyone would benefit from knowing. I love how casual it is and you are just sharing what you know and believe. The examples are excellent and really bring the point home!
