A Raw Food Diet And The Athlete

The Healthy Diet Podcast this week is about exercise, the athlete and a healthy raw food diet.

Show notes:

  • Don’t athletes need more energy than a raw diet or vegan lifestyle can provide? Testimonies from or about vegan athletes.
  • Is animal protein necessary for strength and endurance? Elephants, Silverback gorillas, cows are all herbivores.
  • We can get enough protein from plant sources believe it or not.
  • Carl Lewis, Dr. Ruth Hedrich, Pat Reeves and Victoria from Maine are all vegans and well-conditioned athletes. Victoria loves our faux tuna salad.
  • Ruth Hedrich’s Web Site, Pat Reeve’s Web Site
  • We’ve lost our desire for the usual animal based diet and aren’t even interested in the deli counter at Publix any longer.
  • There is ample evidence that food is our medicine and ultimate nourishment

Exercise, Weight Loss And Healthy Living-b

Due to a technical glitch last week, many of our loyal listeners were unable to listen in to the Healthy Diet Podcast. So, we’re going to play last week’s show again this week. I think only 16 people actually listened to the show. If you are one of those 16, please bear with us and thanks for listening in a second time.

On the Healthy Diet Podcast this time we talk about the importance of exercise to a healthy lifestyle and talk about the Center For Disease Control, endorphins, your lymph system, Hippocrates, and more.

The complete show notes are on the previous blog entry.

Thanks again for listening in,

Exercise, Weight Loss And Healthy Living

On the Healthy Diet Podcast this week we talk about the importance of exercise to a healthy lifestyle.Visit our Fitness Equipment Store

Show notes:

  • Exercise and a healthy diet is the elixir of a long and healthy life.
  • Exercise releases endorphins and make you feel better overall.
  • The lymph system, responsible for waste removal in the body, works much better with exercise.
  • The CDC states that 92% of the population is unfit. No wonder health care costs are so high.
  • Standard exercise regime can be as little as 30 minutes a day 3 times a week. How hard is that?
  • There isn’t anything new about the need for exercise. Hippocrates was saying we need exercise almost 2,500 years ago.
  • It’s really very basic: Eating a whole food, plant based diet and getting a moderate amount of exercise is essential to your health.

Next week: More on exercise or something else.
