Livestrong.. umm okay?

#1 Postby mythil » Wed Jan 09, 2013 3:59 pm

So every so often, when I'm doing a search for information on certain things the website Livestrong.com pops up. Yea we all know who runs it, not really going to go further into that.

Well usually if I try and find some information I'm looking for I'll generally read around on the website I found it on. What I've found on the Livestrong wesbite is that, they really like their meat.. No I'm not kidding.

Go on the website and try to find one article on veganism, raw food or anything like it that doesn't also include "You're body can only get all of this from animal based foods" or "meat does it better".. Really?

No I think I'll set it as a challenge. Go on the website and find an article about veganism, raw food or something like it that doesn't basically tell you that vegetables will never be as good as meat.

i get livestrong newsletter and its had quite a few articles on veganism......and it always seems to be pushing fruit and veg.......lol guess its just depends whos writing and what theirs topics are etc.......

alot of "health" sites also seem to think that because meat isnt deep fried and in breadcrumbs, or covered in creamy sauce then it so called "lean" and perfectly healthy........

Here you go:
http://www.livestrong.com/article/554028-early-morning-proteins-for-vegans/

Vegans and vegetarians who are new to the lifestyle frequently obsess about protein, as do the well-meaning carnivores who love them. The fact is, many Americans consume twice as much protein as the body needs, according to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that only 10 to 35 percent of your daily calories should come from protein. You needn't obsess about complementary proteins, either. It was once considered necessary for those eating exclusively plant-based diets to combine certain foods at each meal in order to get enough of the proper amino acids and complete proteins. Research has shown that as long as you eat a healthy variety of foods throughout the day, you will get all the essential amino acids you need.


and another
http://www.livestrong.com/article/535946-examples-of-a-vegan-diet/

Vegans eat neither "flesh food" nor other animal products. This prohibits eggs, butter, ice cream, seafood and a long list of other foods common in the American diet. From afar, such a diet can seem grossly limited. Like any new subject, however, a bit of research -- necessary to a healthy vegan lifestyle -- will open the door to an expansive array of new information. With the help of creativity and well-rounded nutritional knowledge, vegan meal and snack options are virtually endless.


Nothing negative in this one:

and for what it is worth, you know who is mostly vegan and has stepped down from his various positions at Livestrong.

I didn't realize "you know who" was mostly vegan.

Wait a minute… is blood-doping vegan?

Armstrong used to train in the Côte d'Azur (for many months of the year, every year)… eventually, I think they will still name a street after him.
