Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.
I know and work with people who ascribe to all different diets for various reasons. I don’t particularly like to use labels because I think diet should be fluid and change as the needs in life arise. I don’t consider myself any specific label. A gentleman asked me if I was a WFPB eater. I had no idea what that was so I looked it up and I think it comes closest to describing how I eat most of the time – whole food, plant based, but with quality animal protein.
In the past I’ve even called myself a “qualitarian” – the quality of the food whether animal foods or produce is what matters most to me. A vegetarian who eats genetically modified fruits and vegetables and lots of grains is definitely not going to be healthier than someone who chooses grass-fed, pasture-raised and wild-caught animal foods along with organic produce. So it’s not quite as cut and dried as some would have you believe. That’s why I say:
Eating meat as opposed to a totally vegetarian or vegan diet doesn’t matter as much as the quality of the food.
Dr. Mark Hyman author of Eat Fat, Get Thin says:
"It’s not easy to know for sure what is the ‘truth.’ Vegan diet studies show they help with weight loss, reverse diabetes, and lower cholesterol. Diets high in fat and animal protein seem to do the same thing. Essentially, each scientist (or even each person reading the research) with a point of view adheres to his or her position with near religious fervor. And each can point to studies validating his or her perspective."
I think Dr. Hyman hit the nail on the head and I totally agree. (Finish here)
