My Take On My Take On Vegetarianism Part 3: In Which I Turn Vegan

And yes, of course there’s a catch. My foray into the world of vegan-living lasted a grand total of 3 days. Actually, 3 days was the plan, but I only managed 2.5. Still. You might well wonder why I turned vegan at all given my recent lengthy and strongly worded diatribe on being personally against a non-meat diet.

The reason is that I firmly believe that probably the most fundamental key to healthy living is change. Be it breaking a well-played-out exercise regime, rotating various supplements, or straying from the path of so-called correct nutrition now and then. Your body is highly skilled at adaptation, so anything that you do for too long will eventually become less powerful and may even start to be counterproductive. A classic example is eating the same food again and again an again. Eggs are a common offender. Organic or not, it’s not natural to have access to the same food day in and day out, and many people who eat this way find themselves suffering low-level intolerance symptoms such as bloating, gassiness, and the inability to lose stubborn belly fat.

So as much as I love my protein, and do – 90% of the time – choose fully organic, grass-fed meats, I believe it can’t hurt to give it a break now and then. Even the best caveman/hunter would come home empty-handed from time to time! The way I see it, there are 3 very powerful benefits to going vegan for either a few days each month, or one day a week.

1. A break of 24 hours or more from protein will increase protein absorption and assimilation afterwards. This is just common sense. Having a break from anything leads to an increased adaptation response upon reintroduction.

2. By definition, eating no protein results in increased vegetable intake (so long as on a Paleo diet, of course!). This is definitely not a bad things – seasonal organic veg are chock full of nutrients and natural fibres. It’s all too easy to let adequate vegetable intake pass you by when focusing on protein as your number one macronutrient. And here’s a tip – eating some spinach once or twice a day does NOT count as adequate veg intake!

3. Raw vegie salads are incredibly delicious, and you really do feel a sense of cleansing when you get through nearly an entire crisper-drawer full in one day! Added to this is the estrogen (lower body fat) detoxifying effects of certain cruciferous veg, and you really have a win-win situation.

RULES FOR EATING VEGAN ON A CARNIVORE’S DIET

Well, to be honest, the rules are pretty simple.

  • The most important key is just to make sure you do truly eat a vegan diet for a period of at least 24 hours.
  • This means absolutely no animal protein
  • Including all forms of dairy
  • No packaged foods that include animal products (not that you should be eating packaged foods anyway!)
  • And if health truly is your goal then you’ll be loading up on vegies and perhaps a few fruits, rather than any forms of grain or starch
  • Legumes are fine, as are oils, real salt, spices, herbs, and nuts and seeds
  • I’d suggest no alcohol on this day
  • No supplementing with amino acids or whey protein

There are two main ways in which you can include veganism in your diet. Firstly, you can eat this way for a 24 hour period each week (remember that doesn’t have to mean dawn till dusk). Or, you can block 3-4 days together each month. Up to you. Either way, I’d absolutely love to hear what you think of this concept. I realise it’s a bit of a twist on the usual Body Incredible principles, but hey – it’s always good to trial new ideas.

Final Food For Thought

I often talk about the health and weight loss benefits of grass-fed organic meats, but I’ve never gone into a lot of detail on the moral side of not eating farmed meat and fish. Jess Etcell has done an absolutely tremendous job of summing up the horrors of eating antibiotic-filled protein. This post is an incredibly easy read – but I’d only suggest clicking over if you’re willing to be powerfully influenced against convenient and cheap meat shopping. Until I read this, I have to admit I was including some farmed protein in my diet. Wild fish, for example, is really tough to find. Suffice to say, I don’t think I can ever go back after reading Jess’ post. Click here to check it out.

And for those who are staunchly committed to a non-meat way of life, or perhaps you know someone who is and would like to help them out, visit Part 2 of this series, in which I discuss truly healthy vegetarianism through food combining, amino acids, and supplementation.

That’s all from me for today – I’ve got some vegies to get munching on!

 

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

    I have done a raw vegan diet for about a day time and again. The problem is, I cannot workout because no matter how much protein I take in, I have absolutely no energy on that diet. The best I can do is walk….

    Thankfully, I don’t do that often.

  2. Kat says:

    It’s funny, my energy was quite good for 2 days and then absolutely BOMBED on the third. The reason I finished half a day early is I nearly dropped my daughter I was so week. I had to get some chicken fast! In future I’ll stick with one day at a time.

  3. Carla says:

    Its amazing what our body needs and when we go against the grain, we feel it and fast!

      Hi David, there are certainly some fit vegans and vegos out there! My personal take is that I am healthier, happier, fitter and even HOTTER when I eat more meat. Plenty of fresh greens as well of course. I have found this to be true for most people, but you should certainly do what works for you!
