Someone asked me what is better for your health and weight – having mini meals 6 times a day or 1-2 large meals a day? In today’s videos I go over the pros and cons of both types of eating styles and what I would recommend for those trying to lose weight or gain weight, have digestive issues, and even teeth issues which might be a result of how much you are eating!!
In today’s video I explain why I so drastically changed my diet to reverse the vitamin B12 deficiency, and how where I live, what foods are locally available to me and how my health history had a huge influence in that decision.
Transitioning off of a diet you have been on for a very long time is never easy. I can definitely admit that!! As most everyone knows, it’s only been in recent years that I started eating meats, fish and animal products again. I was a strict vegetarian for 20 years and on a 100% raw vegan diet for almost 4 years following that, but because of a vitamin B12 deficiency I developed while on the raw vegan diet, I decided to incorporate meats, fish, seafood and animal products back into my diet to reverse the deficiency. That dietary change was massive for me, on all levels, and I can be the first one to admit that during the transition I fumbled and made mistakes. In today’s video I share the three biggest mistakes I made during the first 6 months of transitioning off of the raw vegan diet and what I learned from that experience.
Every once in a while someone will tell me they’ve read such great information about coconut oil and ask if they should start taking it as a supplement, as in a few tablespoons a day? My response is “No, no, no!! (unless you want and need to be gaining weight and nothing else works!!).” Coconut oil is fine to cook and bake with, but I don’t believe in consuming extra quantities of it as a supplement. In today’s video I discuss why!
Someone posted this question on one of my videos last week, plus they asked how this would affect how we raised our daughter. Great question and I am happy to respond to this!!
