I was a little nervous when I came across this video. Here we have an esteemed researcher from Stanford. He begins his talk saying that he’s been a vegetarian for 25 years, and has done studies on Soy – and I’m thinking “oh boy”.
It turned out to be very enlightening. And he turned out to be an interesting speaker too, which is great since the video is over an hour long…
Here’s some points from the video that I’ve stated all along –
None of the diets worked all that well. Average weight loss after a year was 30 pounds.
The diets are all very hard to stick with.
Higher grain intake doesn’t work.
You do need water.
You do have to get some sort of exercise, but it doesn’t have to be at the gym.
They talked about how people from a naturally healthy culture would start having health and obesity problems when exposed to a ‘western’ diet, proving that it’s not genetic. I scored again! That’s already in High Energy Eating.
He said that nutritionists sell nutrients, but people buy food. That’s one of the biggest components of High Energy Eating – all of the great food you could be eating and how it helps you.
I’m serious, if you could have seen me watching this, you would have thought I was watching a football game – that’s how excited I got. Not to sounded conceited – but I’m right!
But what made me really joyous is when he admitted that being a vegetarian might not be the answer, and that soy is not the answer they thought it was.
And, he talked about future studies that they are working on – I’ve already covered those topics in High Energy Eating too. Anti-oxidants, sleep, got it covered!
You have no idea how happy I am right now.
But what would make me even happier if if you would apply all of this in your life and get thin, healthy and happy.
If you can carve out the hour and 16 minutes to watch this video – you will learn a ton. And then grab a copy of High Energy Eating and start living it yourself. I’m here to support you every step of the way.
No matter how you choose to do it, get yourself started on a healthier diet. Your life really does depend on it.
Refreshingly good stuff. We (Mike & Kat) from FBC just did a pretty similar QA video that people in our blog asked for about how long it takes to exercise to burn fat. You can see it here if you want to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BlXBd5m6bc ~Mike and Kat from FBC
