Plant based diet anyone?

Ok so I am already pescatarian but after watching ‘the game changer’ on Netflix I have decided to try a vegan diet. For me this means the dairy has to go, I only really have milk in my decaf coffee anyway, don’t worry my b12 and iron are fine and I’m supplementing anyway ( my consultant advised iron for lethargy) will have fortified foods for calcium and vitamin d too! But just wondered if anyone had tried a plant based diet and wether that had any impact on their overall symptoms ?

Couple of things. A diet of un processed foods is likely ideal. What you eat should be based on trial and error and what you feel. Like all animals, this may change daily. When i have muscle injury, I will eat a pound of red meat a day. When I am out jogging, I will eat almost no meat at all. for days or weeks. The day before surfing, I will eat some cheese and wheat. All foods have a different effect and should be considered tools to use, more so that good or bad,

As for game changers. Its not a documentary. It's a non factual vegan propaganda movie made by a religious indoctrination attempt. It's widely known to be complete BS.

Thankyou for your reply, that’s interesting that you use foods in this way, particularly your choice to not eat meats when jogging/ running ! But choose dairy products for surfing, and meat for recovery! If that something you’ve been informed to do or just feel it helps?

I spent years studying people that recovered. I learned to ask questions from anyone who got further than me. I reached out to top athletes about diet, recovery from injury and exhausted nervous systems. I've had mentors, read 100's of books, spent 5 figures on blood testing. All this served to develop my gut instinct and intuition. I combined what I learned with how i feel. Now, I can go just off feel. The truth is, we all can go off feel alone. Those of us in the chronic illness realm learned to ignore our intuition at an earl age.

Dairy seems to have a hormonal impact. It takes very little to fill up the battery. Wheat, same thing but with energy levels. It has a longer term glycogen storage effect, giving me reserves when exerting. Red meat and limited chick have the effect of replacing and restoring damage to the muscle such as tears or heavy lifting. Carbs are the main source of fuel. You can use fat as a fuel, but thats a whole other rabbit hole that isnteasily to explain.

There are lots of podcasts and youtube videos that explain this stuff now. As for game changers, you would have to pay attention to how valid arguments are structured and understand how words are used to pursuede a personal agenda. The vegan Vs Omnivore debate is all based against the standard american western processed food diet. Either one will improve health dramticly against processed food. The big thing you can do is to limit or eliminate all PUFA (poly unsaturated fatty acids) oil. This is all seed and vegetable oils (not kidding) The other thing you can do is eat high fat and low carb or high carb and low fat, but NOT both at the same time. This is all widely available if you spend time looking and googling.
