    I recently saw a documentary Forks Over Knives, which promotes a plant based, whole foods diet, void of meat, eggs, and dairy. It follows to prominent Cardiolgists, who are proponents of this type of diet, and go into detail about the various studies showing the health benefits of a plant based diet. I would love to know your opinion on this documentary, which talks at length about the cause of heart disease, and other diseases predominant in the West being directly linked to high fat, high protein diets.

    This flys in the face of a lot of the main stream athletic circles which promote lots of animal protein and unsaturated, “healthy fats”.

    I’d love to get your take on this documentary.

      These observational studies sadly form the cornerstone of public policy today. They are not scientific double blind tests that is the only way to link a variable to an outcome. Its full of experimenters bias and vested interest. For example in China study Dr. Campbell showed a correlation between animal fats and cancer. With the same data another blogger showed a stronger correlation between wheat consumption and heart disease. What I mean is statistics can be used to interpret the data any which way you like so I would take all these studies with a pinch of salt. A wholesome animal and plant based diet that’s unprocessed and non-factory produced is the healthiest. Moderation in everything never hurt anyone. So eat what you like in moderation as long as its not processed heavily and is in its natural state and dont stress about plant/animal based.

    I was wondering what is your take on sweet potato? Is it as bad as regular potato if you are in weight loss program?

    Lakshmi, sweet potato is much better than regular potato. Its rich in antioxidants and is slowly absorbed in your blood so its less likely to result in weight gain.
