Should we eat more of a plant based diet?
Updated: May 12, 2020
So just to be clear, this is not a plant based, vegetarian or vegan diet rampage!
Yes, at this stage in my life I chose to eat a vegetarian diet. This style of eating works for me but that does not mean that it is right for everyone.
However, I do believe that meat consumption nowadays is excessive and making some dietary changes to incorporate some more plant based option not only benefits our health but also has a beneficial impact on climate change.
Last week it was reported that the UN experts have suggested that “Switching to a plant-based diet can help fight climate change”. https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-49238749
And stating that a major report on land use and climate change says the West's high consumption of meat and dairy produce is fuelling global warming. But scientists and officials stopped short of explicitly calling on everyone to become vegan or vegetarian. They stated that more people could be fed using less land if individuals cut down on eating meat.
In clinic one of the main issues that we see from individuals choosing to eat a more plant based vegetarian or vegan style diet is nutrient deficiencies. Clinical nutritionist can provide clients with all the tools required to transition to a more plant based diet and ensuring that all their dietary requirements in the form of macro and micronutrients are maintained.
Transitioning from any style of eating habit can be difficult with working out what to eat, what is going to work within your lifestyle, what are healthy alternatives etc. We can help to make this transition easier for you.
