9780977679522: Beyond Broccoli, Creating a Biologically Balanced Diet When a Vegetarian Diet Doesn't Work

Beyond Broccoli is authored by Susan Schenck, who herself was a raw vegan for six years, followed by a year of raw vegetarianism (raw dairy and eggs included). Her journey has culminated with the reintroduction of just a bit of raw and lightly cooked meat.

Going raw had originally proved to have so many benefits that Ms. Schenck had already penned the 2-time award-winning, and still relevant, book The Live Food Factor. But after a few years of veganism, she began to exhibit health concerns: deficiencies of vitamin B12, memory problems, muscle tissue loss, bloatedness, irritability, and cravings.

Her further research, spurred on by Dr. Stanley Bass, led her to conclude that it was a lack of vital nutrients found only in animal products that were causing the problems. Dr. Bass, with his more than 50 years of clinical experience in raw vegan and nonvegan diet counseling, contributed the foreword to the resulting Beyond Broccoli.

The book begins with the author's story of why she resumed eating a bit of animal products and how she manages to stay mostly raw even so. It also includes a chapter on other vegans and vegetarians (some who eat raw, others who eat cooked) who made this decision for their own health reasons.

This book addresses the following issues: vegetarian myths; why human s brains have shrunk 11% in the last 11,000 years; the importance of animal foods in pregnant and lactating women; man's dietary history of eating meat for 2.6 million years; how the vegan diet affects the brain and emotions; critical nutrients found only in meat, eggs, and dairy, as well as some found only in meat; the difficulty of getting enough healthful protein on a vegan diet, especially raw; the dangers of soy; the different metabolic types, which explain why some succeed on veg diets while others fail; the dangers of overeating animal protein; how to eat meat so that it is not dangerous; the benefits of eating raw or lightly cooked meat and how to do it safely and make it taste good; spiritual, moral, and environmental issues with meat eating; the importance of eating clean meat from compassionately raised animals; eating a high raw Paleo diet, which is what we evolved eating; the importance of eating raw; flaws in the China Study; the benefits of a low-glycemic diet; important foods if you choose to be a vegan or vegetarian; and more.

This book also addresses issues such as the fact that not everyone can efficiently convert plant nutrients to critical nutrients needed by the body: omega-3 fats into DHA and EPA needed by the brain; beta-carotene into true vitamin A; essential amino acids into nonessential ones; vitamin D2 into D3; and vitamin K1 into K2.

Not everyone has the metabolic type to go veg either. A resource section with related websites and doctors who approve of raw, nonvegan diets is located in the back of the book.

From the Back Cover:

This is one of the very best I have read on the subject, and I will recommend it highly to all who are instructed in superior health. --Dr. Stanley S. Bass, ND, DC, PhC, PhD, DO, DSc, DD

I believe this is a very timely and important book, and commend Susan for her courage in bearding the lion in his den, as she confronts the issues involved in vegetarianism/veganism versus omnivorism. And yes, many seem to be, and are, successful in their vegetarianism/veganism. On the other hand, there are many who are not. This book gives credence and validity to those who are not. --Dr. John Fielder, hygienic doctor, Australia

This book is like a brainstorm on the topic of diet. I applaud Susan's courage for boldly opening up this controversial discussion, as it is the only way to find the truth. --Victoria Boutenko, raw diet author of Green for Life, 12 Steps to Raw Foods, and Green Smoothie Revolution

I especially admire how this author readily admits how her former judgmental attitude towards people who continued to eat animal products has rebounded on her. And while she is now eating meat and other animal-based products, she has not wavered in her conviction in the importance of consuming mainly raw foods and lots of vegetables as the healthiest lifestyle. --LindaJoy Rose, PhD, author of Raw Fusion: Better Living Through Living Foods (volumes I & II)

I'm a smart guy. I know how to do research. But I still spent a lifetime struggling through the confusing maze of nutritional data to find a comfortable, healthy, ethical way to eat. This book could have saved me 30 years of pain if I found it as a teenager... Get it, read it, use it! --Glenn Livingston, PhD

After being on a 100% raw vegan diet for 15 years, I have come to the conclusion that it is not the ideal diet I once thought it was. I'm so thrilled a book is finally written on this topic. Thank you, Susan, for letting people know the real deal about healthy eating. I pray people can have an open mind and heart to understand why this information needs to be told. --Paul Nison, author of numerous raw food diet and health books

Descrizione libro Awakenings. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 143 pages. I think at least half the women on the planet can identify with at least parts of my story. Who hasnt felt the intense pain from being dumped by a man she loved Who hasnt been the one that ended a relationship with a man who loved her If you have, you know this can also be quite painful. In my case, I was 56 and experienced being the dumper and the dumpee both within a span of four months. The last time such a thing occurred I was about 23. Its really quite different when youre 56, especially when you let go of an 18-year-old seemingly quite solid marriage on a gamble for a man that you are magnetically drawn to, only to have him end the relationship four months later. This entire affair was a huge shock to my emotions. I tried a number of modalities to heal and move on. The final effort was made on the Camino, with its great emotional purge. This travel memoir is set in the Camino, and about 80-85 is me on the trek. About 15-20 consists of flashbacks to the horrendous year I had in 2012 as I work through the story in my mind. Along the Way I meet some interesting people, but I also hike alone a lot along this path thats about 2, 000 years old with an energetic vortex. Come along with me and youll get a feel for what its like to walk this mythical, magical, mystical path, as well as the issues that come with sharing a dormitory with both men and women. Youll know what obstacles await anyone traveling this journey, as well as the joys and triumphant feelings that accompany it. At the end youll learn the insights I gained along the Camino that healed me enough to where I can say, I am glad it all happened, and Im free now. You will also learn how I walked the entire trek blister-free, and nearly always free of pain. Yet, some things I would do differently if I had it to do overand I probably willnext time walking about 1, 000 miles, hiking through both France and Spain! This item ships from multiple locations.
