Is There a Link Between Certain Diets and Depression? With Dr. Neal Barnard

"Barr thank you very much for joining us to be with you. You ready for question number one. You bet all right this one comes to us from each four and a tour rights is a junk food diet more likely to cause depression. Well it's a great question. And and historically people have drawn a division whatever's below the neck. That's where i could have an effect but above above the neck no couldn't have any effect. Well the that foods might affect depression impressed in a favorable way through the right foods came to our attention as an accident. We were doing research study with geico insurance and the reason the reason we did this study and check you and i talked about this before the geiko national headquarters is about three or four blocks from her office and so they were really interested in the possibility that a plant based i might help them where they had employee wants to lose weight or get diabetes under better control so we instituted a program at geiko of a vegan diet both in the cafeteria and a weekly class for anybody who wanted to actually jump in and so although the purpose of it was to look at way changes and to see how he does. Diabetes might improve. We saw something else and that was depression. Started to lift. And you can do this subjectively where where you have. Individuals fill out a paper and soul questionnaire of specific symptoms. Are you sleeping. How's your mood. How's your appetite a whole bunch of indicators of depression and what we saw is that quite steadily. They were improving over the course of his site.

"Welcome to the podcast brought to you by the physicians committee high. I am the weight loss. Champion chuck carroll. Thank you so very much for racing your health. Iq with us this episode. Seventy three of season four number two hundred sixty eight overall and today. We are going to be talking about kidney stones. Did you know that one out of every ten people will get one at some point in their life so the questions today are kind of twofold. What foods can help with them. And what foods actually might cause them. And dr neal barnard is back on the show today with those answers. So what you're going to here. Is this week's episode of the exam room live where we were actually able to take your questions questions from the exam. Remy's during the show and mike we always do when we open up. The doctors mail bag. We're going to touch on a lot of other things as well. So we have food and kidney stones but what about drinks and kidney stones does caffeine caused them and then we're going to switch gears a little bit and talk about cheese. We know that regular cheese is addictive. But what about vegan cheese and are there any plant based foods that will raise cholesterol. And then we get into a really good discussion about alzheimer's disease and how many cases could be prevented if people ate healthier diet. You're gonna get into all of that in just a moment. But before that i want to say thank you to the gregory j writer memorial fund for helping to raise our health accused this week and making this episode of the examiner impossible. The gregory j writer memorial fund supports organizations like the physicians committee that carry on great love for animals by promoting plant based health and working to end animal abuse. You can visit the gregory j writer memorial fund online right now at gregory writer fund dot. Org that's gregory writer. R. e. t. e. r. fund dot. Org time now to open the doctors mailbag and get you the answers to your diet and health questions and the man with those answers is dr barnard doc bar. Thanks for being here my friend. Thank you great to be with you again. I'm excited that you're here because i didn't realize until the viewer sending this question of your by the name of red asking about kidney stones. Just how prevalent they are. I mean one out of every ten people that's millions and millions and millions of people that will get them at some point in their life. And you've got one when you've had one you don't forget here being it's the closest man is ever going to get to childbirth. It's it's just up but what you said in the introduction is that there are relationships with food so glad start tackling those questions while let's take reds question right here. What foods are likely to cause kidney stones on their three things that i would like to. Maybe focus on the first is animal protein. Many many studies have indicted animal based diet in kidney stones. And in this case they're not looking at the cholesterol in the animal fat. They're looking at the protein in it. So which foods are protein in meat dairy products including cheese eggs. Getting away from animal. Protein seems to help so animal. Protein suspect number one number two high sodium foods. That's kind of surprised. We think of sodium as being related to blood pressure and it is but it also affects calcium balance in the kidney and high sodium diet can cause Kelsey related stones' number three calcium itself in this case. It's not the calcium broccoli Calcium that's integrated into a food seems not to be the problem. The problem is calcium supplements. Take a calcium pill. It's associated with kidney stones. Now good news if you take the pill with it is not associated with kidney stones if you take a calcium supplement on an empty stomach. That's when that huge load of calcium comes in not buffered by anything else and those are the ones that are associated kidney stones all right and then sarah obviously has the natural follow up to this so we know about which foods can contribute to them but now what foods might help prevent them and if you already have them. What are the foods that you want to eat in exactly the direction or go to plant based foods beans fruits whole grains and. Let's say you are a died. In the lull of meat person. I'm going to the veggie meets even though they taste like me and so forth They are not associated with kidney stone. So they're perfectly find substitutes from that standpoint picked len's lowest impact. Now this is a question from mark and there was somebody in my life. Who swore that drinking gallons of ice tea everyday contributed to their kidney stones and marcus wondering whether caffeine can be a culprit in causing kidney stones. it's question. I keep in mind the vehicle for the caffeine is water So you're getting to tell you're getting hydrated on at the same time as you do and it might even have a diuretic effect so it will cause water to continue to be lost. That's gonna help you. That said there's not really a big association one way or another with native averages all right i to take a second to say hi to lenny. Who's watching us for the first time. Getting a chance to watch the show live all the way in germany. So high lenny. Thanks for being here. Also jacqueline checking in from philadelphia. Appreciate you spending your lunch. Hour with jacqueline dr. Barnard here is something you and i have talked about extensively on the show and you have written about also extensively and that is the topic of cheese we know that regular cheese is highly addictive but him as wandering is vegan cheese ads addictive Plant base cheeses. They might be greasy insulting. They're addictive for that reason but they don't have any case. Oh more fins at all so you'll get the taste of the field. You won't get that that opioid effect. Let's go back really quickly to kidney. Stones take a question from maria at noon straight up Wants to know about diet soda and kidney stones so we asked about not. This is just a natural follow-up sin kind of thing where overall you're hydrating with these things so one would think there won't be any any contribution to it and my guess is that you would see us would not see a significant contribution diet soda to kidney-stones that said I would raise the question with anybody. Who's consume them. So why are we having them. Because the diet sodas are really not that they were marketed as as health food. They haven't turned up to be by that. I mean they don't help people to lose weight in any significant way. They don't help people to prevent diabetes if anything they make things worse because they reinforce a desire for sugary tastes in just the same ways as shirt. Sodas do so. There's only one beverage that we really do need in. That's plain old water when we kind of break up with the diet. Sodas not a bad thing to head right. Let's switch topics here and touch on alzheimer's we have a question. Now from catherine wondering what foods or the best for lowering.

"Going to be excited to see this one. Welcome to the exam. Podcast brought to you by the physicians committee high. I am the weight loss champion. Chuck carroll thank you so very much for racing your health. Iq with us this episode. Seventy two of season four number two hundred sixty seven overall today on the show we are going to be talking about diabetes. It is a disease that according to some estimates could be prevented upwards of ninety percent of the time type two diabetes that is but as it stands now thirty four million adults in the. Us alone are living with within. That is thirteen percent of the adult population not to mention the millions of others who are currently living with pre diabetes. And we want to get them all on a healthier path and so today we are going to be talking about foods that can help get their blood sugar and insulin resistance back under control and if they get on that healthier path hopefully they also will discover that that wants preventable disease is now reversible or at the very least can get brought back under control as we said and to help us down that healthier path. I have with me some very special guests. Who specialize in diabetes doctor hanukkah. Leo vote is back on the exam room today with new research about a grain that is proving to be especially helpful in combating diabetes. But we're gonna kick things off with registered nurse and national board certified health and wellness coach. Detroit dennis what she is going to talk about with us is going to make the ears. Perk up of a lot of people who already have diabetes because it might just opened up a whole new culinary door for them and usher n a new era of health by welcoming back a lot of foods that they thought that they had to leave behind. So let's get started. Here's teacher dennis. And ten foods that are surprisingly friendly for diabetes detroit. Dennis thank you so very much for being here and thank you for having me check. And i'm glad i'm really glad that you're here too because the list of foods that we're gonna get into today if correct me if i'm wrong. These are the foods that a lotta people when they're first diagnosed with diabetes. These are some that they get taken out right away. Yes yes conventionally you know. It is said that removed the sugars from your diet and sell. I'm glad to talk about how we can at the right type of sugars to the diet right. I like the way that you put the right type of sugar because yes yeah one sugar does not fit. All there are many kinds. So let's just jump right in here number ten. I think that a lot of people are going to be excited to see this. One beings peas and lentils. Talk to me about these and the effect that they would have on some of them with diabetes. Yes i'll really. All those that are on. The list are high in fighter and we know that fiber is really good. You know or not just choir digestive of things but it really helps with stabilizing the blood. Sugar and beans are very high in fiber. So please at though to your plate in many ways you can have it at the salad you can have it cooked And i love chick. Peas that are roasted very delicious. Oh that's right roasted chickpeas and by the way you see them in the store all the time. A lot of those have a lot of added oil to them. And so that's going to up the fat content but chippings or something that are really easy to roast in. Your oven means breezy Some like a soil files low-sodium. Soy sauce are liquid amino acids to in the oven about four hundred resource bad or hundred about twenty minutes delicious. That's it that's it you know you don't have to be a special kind of shift to be able to pull this one off. I mean on a person that burns water in the kitchen. You can still row some chick peas recipe number. Nine number. nine is one that i think is going to catch a lot of people off guard especially if they're not yet familiar with the idea of eating a plant based diet because this is one that i think when the doctor hands down that diagnosis. I mean we're talking about taking these out right away. I mean we're talking about preemptively taking it out of the diet so why. What is the disconnect there. Well again when you hear sugars in. I wanted to clarify so with the sugar. Carbohydrates the simple carbohydrates are the ones that we want to remove and we want to at the complex carbohydrates which are fruits have in again they have a fiber in them and that prevent your blood sugars from spiking so high heats them stable so at of route to your to your diet the with breakfast you know as a fruit salad or a smoothie are even having fruit as your dessert. Addison spices to them. And you will be headed to the races in your worst shop. You just mentioned making a smoothie Does that kind of up the glycemic. Into or or increase the amount of sugar that would reach the bloodstream. Because it's it's already kind of broken down or is it better to stick with the whole fruit. Well you know best is eating at home but if you want to use a smoothie i would say just as when you're eating take your time give it thirty minutes go-slow with it and it. Will you know cause such spike with blood sugar. But that that's the With eating having the fruit as a smoothie. Add some rain to your green leafy vegetables. Kale spinach collards to it. In that will help is well with reducing such a spike with blood sugar..

"This year marks a major milestone for the physicians committee is food for life program which has been teaching the health benefits of a plant based diet for thousands of people really helping to get their health back on track and today. I am thrilled to be joined by one of the longest tenured instructors in the food for life program she is a rockstar within our organization. And that is why. I am so thrilled that she is here with us today. Gene myers welcome to the exam room. Thank you thank you so much. I'm happy to be here. I am too because you have been a really kind of trendsetter when it comes to vegetarian. Diets and then exclusively plant based diets is my understanding that it has been well over thirty years. Maybe close to forty years. Since you've had any meat is that correct yes. Yes in a nineteen eighty four. I read francis marla pays book diet for a small planet. And that's what changed my outlook. I just felt like it was something i had to do. Ethically it wasn't that about the animals so much back then. It was about all the starving people that didn't have enough to eat because of the meat center diets of the western world and so i Switched at that point and nineteen eighty-four. I would imagine that there were not a whole lot of vegetarians in in the world at that point right we haven't seen that trend start to explode as we're beginning to see now. What kind of reaction did you get from your friends in your family at that point. Well you're right. There weren't the products in the stores that you can buy to make cooking easy. it was. Yeah well i was just pretty determined. And so i didn't really worry about my friends reaction so much. The family did not join me. I just cooked my own stuff. I was able to make dishes for the kids. And then i would take mine out before i added the mate and then so for a bail three or four years we kind of went our separate ways and then my daughter when she was seven. Read a book about veterinarians and his daughter who loved animals so much. She wouldn't eat them and so then. My daughter became vegetarian at age. Seven so then there was my daughter eating -tarian and then my husband and two sons were not but over the years a my son had to do a paper for school and he contrast gandhi churchill and he read about ghandi's a himself a philosophy and he became the -tarian and then my husband's a physician and as he learned more and more about the health impacts of red meat. He left that off then. He got rid of chicken and so he became the -tarian and finally our middle son. We were on a trip to california driving pass stockyards and he said later. It was so difficult being in the car with four vegetarians. Driving past stockyards that he he also became vegetarian so it took eight years but then we were finally all in the same place so eight years from one thousand nine hundred eighty four. I'm guessing this is right around. Nineteen ninety two at that point. Right right right okay. Now let me let me pause before we move forward with your story because one of the questions that we get all the time on the show gene is. I am new to this plant based diet but my family has not joined me on this journey so finding it really difficult to cook two meals every single time. How did you balance that. How did you make that happen. Are there any tips that you can share well. I looked for recipes where you add them. Meet later you know and or it was just a separate thing and i ate all the side dishes and made sure that i had beans in something So it really wasn't. It didn't seem that hard to me. That is sage advice. That is the first time. I think i've ever heard it like that. Most people assume that you you have to do two different recipes. Like if you're doing meatloaf you got to do the meatloaf and then you've got to do the lentil loaf to go with it right now. You're talking about just being smart about it and adding the non vegan products down the line. I like where your headset gene. This is why. I have you on the show because you are bringing a ton of wisdom to us Let's fash ford another five years. Nineteen ninety seven for you was another big year. That's when you decided that you didn't just want to be vegetarian. You wanted to become a full blown vegan at that point. What was the deciding factor there that was learning more about the eggs and dairy industries. And what happens before that. I had never heard that all these baby chicks were killed. The male chicks were killed. I didn't know that. I didn't know how cows were treated. And it just made me horrified. But i have to say that was a harder transition than no meat and in fact i had to try it once or twice before i could. I was sort of a little addicted to frozen yogurt. And you know there weren't that many other options at that point. But once i just got it in my brain that anytime i wanted dairy cow you know. Cows have just station period as long as humans. And they mourn for their cavs when they're taken away so you know that just really touched me and you know i had been a nursing. Mom so i know know about motherhood you mentioned the frozen yogurt was hard. A lot of people also struggle with cheese. Was that a big one for you. It wasn't as big for me as it was for my husband. He really struggled with cheese and for several years that we didn't have any at home but if we went to a party or something you know he might have a little bit but it takes a while to lose that addiction. And i think neil has done such a great job. You know in his books in his talks about informing people. That cheese is an addiction that she prep is a great book. So your husband the the physician. He goes primarily for health reasons. That's his his big deciding factor for changing his diet. You it seems more you're on the animal side and the environment side will. We'll get into that as well. But how important war the health benefits to you while you're making all these decisions as well. Well i always felt pretty healthy what. I was surprised by though. I always had a sinus infection every winter. And just figured you know that's normal you get a cold and it turns into a sinus infection but after i gave up dairy i didn't have another one ever so that was pretty surprising. Because that's.

"Let me go ahead and double down on what it was. Dr ramone was saying about exercise. During our conversation. you know. The gym could be such a major stumbling block for us as we start to lose weight now whether that is because of a lack of confidence or over committing and burning out or just not wanting to around others during the pandemic the fact of the matter is that dusting and cutting grass and really any chore can burn calories just as she said but there really is no shame in just going for a walk. That is a habit that you can establish every single day without the risk of burning out even at your lowest point. Consider this when. I was at my heaviest. I could barely walk across the street. But that's where i started. I would go across the street. I would sit down for about fifteen minutes and then walk back to my desk during lunch. Eventually i was able to walk around the block and then one block became to and became three. And then eventually i was walking one mile but i got so motivated and i was feeling so much better that might commitment then extended from just one mile to five miles every single day on my lunch break and i even worked it out with my boss so that i could make up that extra time that i was taking during lunch to get in those five miles at the end of the day so i still wouldn't have to worry about exercising or going to the gym after work when i was already tired. It's about establishing habits that you can keep what works for you. Walking is key and you can do that during your lunch break. That may be just the ticket. One more thing to pass along today and for that. We're going to head to the exam news desk for check on health headlines. There's new data showing a plant center. Diet can help to prevent cardiovascular disease a long-term study of nearly five thousand adult shows that those who die it's frequently included nutritionally rich plant foods but did not include a lot of high fat meats had a fifty two percent less chance of developing heart disease and the risks dropped even further as they got older researchers. Say that the risk plummeted by sixty one percent through middle age. The findings are published in the journal of the american heart association. Now this study began all the way back in nineteen eighty five and all of the participants at that time were between the ages of eighteen and thirty and researchers track them all the way up until two thousand and eighteenth so we're talking about thirty two years of data here and their diets were rated using what is known as the priori diet quality score and that is a rating system that essentially assigns a higher value for a more nutritionally rich plant food and a lower value for fatty less nutritionally dense food and to be clear some of the unhealthier plant foods were also included in that category that they called adversely related foods. So you've got an addition to the high fat red meat fat dairy and butter. Then think about things like french fries and potato chips and even a lot of those vegan desserts that you will see in the store. So that also gets lumped into the adverse food category. Meanwhile some of the foods listed in the beneficial category were no surprise fruits avocado beans and lagoons tomatoes whole grains and vegetables. Interestingly were broken into three categories there were green vegetables yellow vegetables and everything else and the database that food researchers were using is massive eighteen thousand different foods in there and those foods then are broken into forty six individual groups for the study now. here's the conclusion verbatim that was published by the study's authors. Our study shows that long term consumption of a nutritionally rich plant center diet is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Furthermore increase plant center diet quality since young adulthood is associated with a lower subsequent risk of cardiovascular disease throughout middle age independent of their earlier diet quality so basically what they're saying is the earlier in life. You begin to eat a healthy diet the healthier you will be as you get older but of course that's also not to say that it's ever too late to start eating a healthier diet and taking care of yourself because that is not the case because we have heard stories on this very show of people who are in their nineties. Suddenly being able to get out of their chair and walk a mile or more after beginning to eat a healthy plant based diet. You make some lifestyle changes and you change what you eat. 'n things happen for a lot of people so keep that in mind the next time that you doubt yourself where someone tells you that they're to set in their ways to change. They can never change at this point in their life. It is never ever too late and you can dive into the nitty gritty of the numbers. If you would like there is a link to the full study right now in the episode notes and for today. That is going to wrap things up. Don't forget to register for dr romance weight. loss program. A link to that is also in the episode notes along with information to schedule an appointment to visit with her and the other doctors dietitians at the barnard medical center. So make today the day you get your health back on track and thank you once again to dr ramone for being here with us today and for everyone here at the physicians committee. I am the weight loss champion. Chuck carroll thank you so very much for listening and remember as always. Keep it plant based.

"Barr. Thank you so very much for being here. Jeff these are some really interesting studies and it kind of goes back to what it is that we've been talking about throughout this pandemic and and that is the healthier. You are the less at risk you seem to be. So if you wouldn't mind can you talk to us a little bit about these two studies and what it is. Researchers have discovered yeah. Let me preface this really by saying we've kind of suspect. The diet ought to be a big actor here because when people are overweight when you of diabetes hypertension particularly when these things are really out of control. Kobe just becomes so serious and often fatal but when people have these things under better control they do better. That suggests that if your diet is really good these conditions are going to be better but the question really was well. What if you actually are following a mostly plant-based diet will that help you and the answer seems to yes The first of these studies was involving.

You are the less at risk you seem to be. So if you wouldn't mind can you talk to us a little bit about these two studies and what it is. Researchers have discovered yeah. Let me preface this really by saying we've kind of suspect. The diet ought to be a big actor here because when people are overweight when you of diabetes hypertension particularly when these things are really out of control. Kobe just becomes so serious and often fatal but when people have these things under better control they do better. That suggests that if your diet is really good these conditions are going to be better but the question really was well. What if you actually are following a mostly plant-based diet will that help you and the answer seems to yes The first of these studies was involving.

The Truth About Soy and Testosterone With Dr. Neal Barnard

"He has been the victim of soy's really been hacked so to speak people have been saying bad things about soy. That really are not true. And one of the common ones is that soy will cause a breast enhancement that it will reduce testosterone. All this kind of stuff sort of feminizing. is the idea and the verdict Came in a long time ago and it is very clear. It's all products not cause any feminization men. They don't have an adverse effect on a man's testosterone level at all Period in in the end of it. And if you have subscribed to the idea that soy products caused man boots this is kind of the way it put on the internet. Forgive me for saying this. But that's what it is but they mean is that a guy has some breast enlargement in their thinking. maybe that was from soy Always suggested a person to test. This out is going to the beach on a hot july day. And if you see a guy who's a little heavyset and he's pulling office journey. Think mine he does have some breast enhancement. Go right up to him and ask him homage tofu. Have you been eating this past week. And i guarantee you. He will say tofu. I don't eat tofu. what are you talking about eight pizza. I eat burgers. I grilled cheese. That's my thing what stove who Part of what. Researchers have had a long time to understand what's happening and here's what's happened. Here's where the breast enhancement comes from. S eating fatty food cheeseburgers. Whatever people who eat those foods tend to gain weight compared to people who don't and when people eat a lot of fatty foods and they have more fat cells. Fat cells are not just blobs of calories. They are estrogen factories. So you've got more body fat into each fat cell. The to start her own goes into the cell. Estrogen comes out of the south. They convert the testosterone estrogen gets breast enhancement. It's actually breast tissue. And it came from his gaining weight have more body fat a switch to vegan night including soy would help make all of that go away

But i'm worried that i might miss the warning signs that i have clogged arteries. Are there any There are some You may not have them But there are some of the classic ones obviously are. The person might have chest pain Which engine And so that the heart muscles just not getting adequate oxygen and after walking if you block the person gets chest pain and then they're equivalent ones where you could get like paints because your legs aren't getting adequate blood flow. Surprisingly enough lower back pain might be in the same category but for a different reason. And that is that. If you're not getting enough of blood supply to your lower back. The discs start to degenerate and so this disease is now thought to be one of the manifestations of arterial disease amazingly enough And less person. Imagine that's quite rare. Researchers have looked at Autopsy studies of young people who are tragically killed in car wrecks or something like that and they found that there are serious artery blockages in kids as young as eighteen. And twenty. where it's because they lost an entire lumbar artery. So the bottom line years this starts early on the classic Canary in the coal mine. the big. Sign that you're gonna artery.

We have a gentleman with us here today. Who knows all about this matter. Fact did a comprehensive study on this very topic not too terribly long ago and with that we welcome. Dr neil barr back to the exam room. Thank you so very much for being here. Sir hijack great to be with you. Let's start with the surface level question. What is a migraine. And how does it compare to those day to day headaches that we all get great question. A migraine is not just a bad headache. untypical tension headache. That a lot of folks get is a dull ache lasts an hour or two. It's gone that's of beds. That's about it now. it can be intense. But the differentiates a migraine is that migraines are usually one-sided. They're often pounding and throbbing with your pulse. And along with it. You get lots of other things to. You're really sensitive to lights and sounds and sometimes you'll feel sick. You might even actually throw up. So it's it's a whole physical thing. as opposed to just Attention headache some people will get an aura beforehand. Not everybody but sometimes you'll see changes in your vision. That will warn you that the migraine is about to hit and we talk a lot about chronic illness on the show. Is there any research showing whether or not migraines can be genetic at all they can be and they can also strike at any time of life. Unlike so many conditions where you've got to kind of be middle aged for to happen You'll see them in kids. And i have to tell you check. There is nothing sadder than a kid. Who's got a migraine because they last a long time. They can last overnight the next day kids aren't in school They're just waiting in the dark and what they're hoping for is that they will fall asleep. Sometimes the sleep will arrest the migraine and they can function again but there are kids who have them a few times a week and it can be just really

And that's vitamin b twelve energy needed for healthy nerves in Blood amount you need is really tiny. It's two point four micrograms not grams not milligrams micrograms very small. It's in every multiple vitamin that you've ever took but it's also just sold by itself and i would Really really really encourage you to go to the store. Health food store or drugstore. Pick up a bottle. B twelve at the smallest one they sell because again. You only need two point four micrograms and have covered. That's really the one essential vitamin d. A is often used as a supplement for people who don't get enough sun on their skin. Sunlight on the skin makes vitamin d. And it helps you absorb calcium from foods to tweet. But if you're living in a cold place source or using sunscreen all the time. You're not making vitamin d. You need so. Vitamin d. Supplement will be covered. Most doctors will prescribe about two thousand. I use a day and you can get that at any store. Any drugstore third one also now required. But when you think about that's i add the vitamin d and the iodine are not just for people. Begin for anybody. Anybody who missing son should be thinking about vitamin d and i. It is something that people should think about because of their thyroid. Don't just run to the store and get i'd because if you get too much run into trouble but your doctor can easily check your thyroid if you're low in energy sluggish gaining weight for reasons Check of your thyroid's a good thing and many doctors will discover that a person needs a little extra item.

Is It Time To Stop Counting Calories? Dr Vanita Rahman Weighs In

"The idea of not counting. Calories is a little bit confusing since some plant foods like avocados and nuts. They still have quite a bit of calories. So when should we still be keeping track of calories and can we forget all about it. Yeah so you know. It's a little bit confusing. I know for people Because you hear so. Many different types of dietary advice and what works dozen. When do you cards when you count calories. Let's really simplify this. You know. I tell people if you're looking to lose weight or keep it off or improve your health. Think of this large basket of food on your kitchen table and you're going to select food from there. So when does that basket is the key. A lots of fresh fruits vegetables whole grains like keen wa and oats and millet and brown rice and wheat products and then legalzoom's lentils now if we select from those We don't necessarily have to sit there and count calories and the reason being all of these foods are really high in fiber. There are naturally low in fat so their caloric densities low and that fiber just fills us up. So you know. If you've had an apple you know you can only eat one. Maybe two apples before you're really full. And that's because of the fiber in it so you don't to sit there and count honey apples you're eating Where the confusion does come in. Is some of these higher facts. Foods that are plant based like kat does or nuts and seeds are all as now. If you're looking to lose weight or lower your blood sugar you may want to minimize the use of those foods. So you know depending on where you are in your journey reducing that can be extremely helpful but for the other things that i talked about the nutrition profile so good caloric density solo that we really don't have to worry about counting calories.

Here's The Truth About Soy

"Messina. Phd is here with me today. Welcome to the show dr messina. Thank you for inviting me. It's a real pleasure to have you here and this is a topic that comes up quite a bit whether we're doing the live. Qna's with viewers or. We're just taking questions in our mailbag. Everybody always wants to know about soy. There's so much debate surrounding soy. That has been so pervasive for so many years. Why do you think it is that. Soy is such a hot topic. Well there are lots of reasons and you're corrected his a hot topic and it's a controversial one in many respects one. Reason is that there are about two thousand scientific articles published each year on swipe foods so you think over the past twenty or thirty years. There's about fifty thousand articles. And if you cherry pick the data you're able to make a convincing argument for just about anything you want to say. But what's important is to look at the taliban of the evidence and to really focus on the human research the clinical study is the observational studies. And when you look at the human research is pretty clear. That's so i can make an important contribution to a healthy diet. And why is it that that animal based research doesn't necessarily always translate to human results. When you can make an argument that were so closely linked to other primates. Well i think it's pretty clear about first of all. Most of the research has been conducted in rodents and for all sorts of reasons. They're not a good model in general but especially because or especially in the case of soy because soy foods contain a rather interesting compound called eissa flav owns is aflame. Owns at come for why so much. Research has been conducted on soy and it turns out that the animals metabolize eissa flavors very differently from humans. Now animal studies are a part of the scientific literature but fortunately in the case of soy. They're literally hundreds of clinical studies that have evaluated not only benefits but also safety and also hundreds of observational studies. That have looked at those end points so we really have a wealth of information upon which we can make conclusions about the health effects of soy based on the human research.

But yeah, yeah, that's what they sell right merchants of Doubt or so good news is almost makes me like one of those people who are so creative. Yes, I guess they do it for the money, but why don't they spend do some pro bono work for beings or or some of their products then milk? Someone just sent me just a couple of months ago. The actual got milk slogan came from a guy at an ad agency from my home. Town of Louisville, Kentucky, so they said that they said you guys we actually went to the same high school too. They said go to him and see if he wants to do some pro bono work and come up with something that's brilliant on the other side so long we've been trying to I haven't found him yet. But I thought that. He's he's going to be like the guy who was Sprint guy who they went over to Verizon. Verizon guy went over to say yes. Yeah be that guy that yeah, I think so too..

"Longest if not the longest digestive tracts and because the argument really with the four stomachs is as we know each one of the four stomach does something different in terms of the digestive process, but we kind of have that covered in our large and small intestine know so yes, I've definitely I'm not an expert in this but definitely heard the lectures where they talking about the animals that need me to are carnivores and they have these really short digestive tracts that are much less likely to have the meat kind of sitting around writing in their bodies. We don't I mean we just have you know yards of this stuff that has to get through and you have to have that fiber to push almost anything through I mean meet will just ultimately end up kind of rotting and I think clearly that's why me is so closely linked with well pretty much any cancer from your mouth to your tail, but colorectal cancer specifically just kind of sits there. I mean in my mind, I mean it off Other science here, there's team iron. There's they toxic compounds that it becomes and sodium and fat and all these other things but in my mind, I always picture that me just sitting there like, oh, I almost made it but I landed in the large intestine and I'm just can't go any farther and then we just get these high rates of colorectal cancer in this country. Right? Let's talk inflammation because in yours section of the report you talked about how milk impedes blood flow and I think that has to do with inflammation. Can you explain it as a kid? I always thought inflammation was just that red I got cut and it got read that was inflamed. I didn't really have an understanding that inflammation inside. The body is not a good thing. Although inflammation does have there's a reason we get inflamed. It's the difference I think between chronic right and acute so that your finger that's acute inflammation. It's your body healing yourself. It's chronic inflammation when we get into trouble. Yeah, so it is I mean, you're right that was inflammation. Yep. It does happen on the inside too. And you know, if you kept scratching your hand and it kept getting red and inflamed to start eventually while you get a bunch of scar tissue there right? Well, that's maybe not a pretty but if that happens in your arteries, that's a narrowing of your artery or a total blockage of your artery or a piece of scar tissue that snaps off and suddenly blocks your arteries. So not good. I mean inflammation is important. Don't get me wrong like like you're saying and that's your I mean exercise creates information. Right?.

"And again your name to high fat High saturated fat clogging your arteries. Okay, maybe you'll die of a toxin, you know a pathogen before it gets to your heart anyway, so that's the upside like that's not down side to me. So I just the whole thing is we're just really trying to put a round peg in a square hole. Right like it's just like it's not working like stop it. Just stop it with them. Now you mold it or produce it. It's never going to be good for us. You mentioned that it seems like the government doesn't know how to stop doing this page support of an industry. That really is should go the way of the the buggy-whip maybe you've talked a lot on behalf of pcrm to government agencies and things just be CRM have any song Lucien to what can be done to counteract the age-old argument that we have to support our Farmers. I think we have to kind of suck all the approach. That was also very slow remarkably of tobacco where to villainize Tobacco is Sevilla nice boots farmers and Virginia North Carolina and and it just wasn't done and certainly the people from those states were not going to partake in any of it. So it took decades like Decades of people dying before I'm finally government caught up with science to say, oh okay back it was good for you, but it took a long time and a lot of research and a lot of like everybody like let me know that's going to kill you but it's tobacco. We love our tobacco far more and it's I think that's kind of the issue here with me deri what-have-you is we have to kind of wage If we can just keep talking about the science all the time because I shouldn't as a dietitian be factoring in the economy of the nation necessarily. I just know the science behind in the health and that's all I can State. I don't watch after that through Agriculture and the economy, but all that said I think eventually the science does catch up and sometimes pass the government and they play a little bit of ketchup and like okay, I mean in my I was talking to a friend the other day about how I remember I was in my twenties and I remember when smoking wasn't allowed in bars and concert Halls first in Boulder Colorado is like what is this? Like this is great didn't even occur to me. That should be my right because I have to bring cigarettes in the New York City and then slowly but surely it just became kind of a universal law and you know just takes so long, but I do think we'll get there and I think our Approach at the Physicians committee is kind of going for this the blue Pig The dietary guidelines like let's get it in there. We have the science. We have a lot of like, yeah, we know but you know, but when you talk about Dairy, it's not North Carolina and Virginia. It is Pennsylvania. It's New York. It's California a big powerful state with a lot of money and a lot of officials and government officials that even if you off to their office and showed him all the science just to get a great facial reaction and they're like, yeah, we're not touching that like, they just won't touch it. But I think again the science will catch up and at some point you have to admit you're wrong and your constituents deserve better. The money is there to maybe transition these Farmers over to another product so that they don't all those subsidies for very could go to grow other foods, which would be even more helpful. So you you mentioned about cows milk not having to be stuff added to it to make it more healthy. And one of the things that's added to it is vitamin D talked to us about the obsession that people have about linking milk with healthy bones vitamin.

"We'll delve more deeply and and learn more about the you know, what gets me the most is is how government is pushing with big business to this substance, which is unhealthy for us unhealthy for the animals to be confined so that we can capture their milk and unhealthy for the planet it just yeah it can it's confounding to lose lose lose situation. Well, I am a really big fan of our guests today. I look up to her so much and she really is the one that got my wheels turning and stoked the fire on fight with the dietary guidelines for Americans and alerting me last July. So 2019 that there was an opportunity to speak in front of the committee the dietary guidelines Committee in Washington DC back where we can be in in rooms with people and I went and spoke there and I left all fired up and now, you know, it's definitely been one of our fights this summer among others, but so yep. Have plant-based nutritionist dietitian Susan Levin and you know, she she's so amazing for many reasons, but you know, she's just not doing nutrition. She is marching the steps of Washington DC and fighting the good fight from a you know, governmental level policy level and person level. So she's the director of nutrition and education. I should say nutrition education at the Physicians committee for responsible medicine are good friends over there and in Washington. She was a big part of this report as is Doctor James Loomis who's the medical director over there the Barnard Medical Center, so they're both they both have big pieces in this report that are very revealing. She believes that everyone can take control of their health and that it really just does take that simple switch. She grew up in the South like I did she grew up in Alabama grew up in Kentucky. We grew up on the standard wage. American diet the typical Southern Standard American diet which may be one level lower than the typical standard American diet. So she is, you know, living proof that anyone anyone can change so welcome friend Susan to switch for a good podcast. Hey, thanks for having me. I really appreciate it. And thank you for boy. You really puts fear of God in the USDA when you unleash. C on them. So thank you for doing that. So funny. I just can't believe that he came in there and upstaged everybody took her Olympic jacket. So I turned it on the audience seat the back of the person right? Here's this woman with this big USA on her back just boom boom. It was awesome. It was great. I'm so glad that you got the bog and that you're we're on the same side. Thank God. Yeah, you know, it's a good place to start with, you know, now, you know, we're in twenty twenty thousand. There, you know the the committee's report came out in mid July this year. It's been handed over and it's now in the hands of the USDA. And so now we wait, you know now we met we're doing a few things to you and I still but mostly mostly we wait how how long do you well, I probably Susan thinks in the beginning of January is the last time I talked to your think you're feeling like right now. Yeah. Typically it's at 5 every five years and the cycle usually the same the cycle has been a little bizarre with kind of a different a typical Administration and now a pandemic today are running a little behind the whole time. But even though they usually come out in January of the next year. They say they're going to come out in December. I think there's a little bit of a push to get them done maybe prior to an administrative change over. I'm not sure but they seem really eager to get these out. So, where are you in your in your hope? Closet how much hope is there? You know, I'll let you speak to it..
