Fit Vegans

Fit Vegans

As I go deeper into being vegan and find myself becoming more and more healthy and more fit, I could not help but make some observations.  Not only do I feel great, I am looking great, and I  have a certain glow about me that others have noticed and commented about.  I am not used to receiving compliments so it is a bit weird but also nice on the other hand.  I have also noticed this about other vegans.  I can almost tell when someone is vegan just by looking at them.  They are happier and healthier!  Their skin is clear and they have a certain glow about them.  They are lean and fit (not all but most).  Of course there are what I call ‘junk food vegans’ too and I wrote about that HERE.

Those that follow a Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle are most certainly radiant. I want to suggest that perhaps one of the reasons, is that they are no longer consuming the flesh of stressed out animals.  Animals feel fear and pain.  When they are in a slaughter line and can sense their demise, they are stressed and their bodies and brains dump hormones and adrenaline into their system and their muscles.  According to Wikipedia, the ‘Fight-or-Flight’ response is as follows:

The fight-or-flight response (also called hyperarousal, or the acute stress response) is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival. It was first described by Walter Bradford Cannon. His theory states that animals react to threats with a general discharge of the sympathetic nervous system, preparing the animal for fighting or fleeing. More specifically, the adrenal medulla produces a hormonal cascade that results in the secretion of catecholamines, especially norepinephrine and epinephrine.  The hormones estrogen, testosterone, and cortisol, as well as the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, also affect how organisms react to stress.

I once had a really lovely golden retriever.  She was incredibly smart.  I got her as a young pup and she grew up with my kids.  She was a horrible chewer!  She chewed on everything that was left out for her!  She used to chew up the kids’ plastic toys and then stuff them down the couch cushions because she knew she wasn’t supposed to do that.  Her name was Sadie.  When I would come home and find that she had chewed up something else…… I’d say “Sadie! Get in your kennel!” – And she would.  She just wanted to please me and love on the kids.  When I would scold her and she would go to her kennel, she would breathe really hard and I could smell the fear on her.   I am guessing that she was likely beaten as a puppy.  If you have ever smelled fear on a dog (and us humans aren’t any different), you know that it is a horrible smell and it is a culmination of pure adrenaline and hormones that are being dumped into their system.

If you are eating animal flesh, you are also consuming the stress response to fear, and the hormones that give them a flight or fight response and is dumped into their bodies!  That has to some how affect us.

I was asked a questions recently in an interview: “If you could tell yourself anything prior to getting healthy, what would it be?”  The answer is: Stop and think.  Everything that we put into our bodies has an outcome.  I don’t mean .  If we feed our bodies with saturated fat, refined carbohydrates, pesticide laden produce, stress hormones, and casomorphins; what is the outcome?  In America, the outcome is pretty obvious.  Obesity, anxiety, autism, food sensitivities, diabetes, and heart disease.

Alarming rates of Monsanto’s Round-up found in human urine samples.

The latest study to look at the long-term effects of Roundup, a popular weed killer developed by Monsanto in the 1970s, raises questions about the herbicide’s possible contributions to poor health in certain communities.

The study, published Tuesday in JAMA, tracked people over the age of 50 in southern California from 1993-1996 to 2014-2016, with researchers periodically collecting urine samples during that time……. read more:

Meat, the environment and industry brainwashing



Meat and Livestock Australia has published a series of study guides for primary and secondary school students.

This post focuses on one of the primary school guides, “Cattle and the Environment”, released in 2010. [1] Copyright rules prevent me from showing images from the guide, but in my view, the above image (from elsewhere) gives some idea of the style.

As a general comment, I don’t feel that it’s asking too much to expect a study guide to be factual. If it’s not, could there be an ulterior motive?

Having said that, I anticipate that many kids studying this topic will be too astute to be brainwashed by industry PR.
