Why do vegetarians add
meat back to their diets?
During her 20 years as a vegetarian,
Lierre Keith’s health got worse. After adding meat back to her
diet, she felt rejuvenated and condemned the vegetarian diet in her
book, "The Vegetarian Myth". My heart sinks when I hear stories like
this. But there's a reason vegetarians fail.
At a potluck last year, Dr. Michael
Klaper explained it this way:
Without the right game plan for
meeting your nutritional needs, a plant based diet has real pitfalls.
That's why Lierre, and others like her, develop health problems.
Getting these nutrients on a plant
based diet is entirely possible (it's what we teach in the Vegetarian Mastery
But you can't go about it "willy
nilly" (i.e. haphazardly). Here are two reasons why:
1) Only 10% - 20% of the iron in
vegetarian foods is absorbed by your body (vs. the "heme" iron in meat
2) The beta carotene in plant foods is only 1/12 as potent as
animal-based Vitamin A.
Fortunately, our research uncovered
"magic" food combinations that multiply the iron you absorb, and the
Vitamin A you produce from beta carotene foods. And you'll learn all
about them in Lessons 7 and 13 of The Vegetarian Mastery Program.
But iron and Vitamin A are just two
of the nutrients that are harder to find -- or absorb -- from plant
foods. Others are calcium, DHA fatty acids, and Vitamin B12 and D.
That’s why we created The Vegetarian Mastery Program.
"The Mastery Program has been well worth
the price, and has provided a tremendous boost to my health as attested
by my lab results; it's helped me lose the descriptor 'diabetic'. Being
vegetarian is now much easier than the daunting task I thought it would
be; your lessons help make it an enjoyable experience."
– Judith A. Becker, Saint
Why remain vulnerable to vitamin or mineral deficiencies when you can
find out exactly how to eat and absorb enough calcium, iron, Omega 3s, and Vitamins A, B12, and D?
Just one oversight or deficiency
– if ignored for too long – can leave you vulnerable to
disease, and potentially thousands in doctor or dental bills. Why take
that gamble when you can thrive on a vegetarian diet now and
for the rest of your life?
