  • Preventing Ex-Vegans: Why Feeling “Normal” Matters
    This is my 4th and final (for now) post on tactics for preventing ex-vegans. My thoughts on this topic come from several different types of evidence—including research in vegans and vegetarians as well as research on eating behavior in general. To summarize, what I've already written about:  People sometimes leave veganism (or vegetarianism) because (...more)

  • Preventing Ex-Vegans: Why Nutrition and Nutritionism Matter
    Eating healthy whole foods is important—and so is paying attention to individual nutrients. Lately, though, that's become an unpopular thing to say. It's what food activists like Michael Pollan refer to as “nutritionism.” That is, he and others say we should stop worrying so much about nutrients and just eat food (or “real” food as […] (...more)

  • Preventing Ex-Vegans: The Power of Ethics
    Helping people go vegan is great. But it's meaningless if we can't help them stay vegan. Last week, I wrote about how overhyping the benefits of a vegan diet can result in ex-vegans. One of the reasons people abandon vegan diets is that they lose faith in its benefits. That's more likely to happen if […] (...more)

  • Will Going Vegan Make You Look Like Christie Brinkley?
    Christie Brinkley turned 61 this year, and she looks pretty great. Incredible in fact. How does she do it? According to some vegan blogs and facebook posts, she credits her vegan diet. That's funny, because I'm about Christie's age and have been vegan for some 25 years. And despite my diet, the years haven't been […] (...more)

  • Celebrities, Weight Loss and Penn Jillette's New Vegan Diet
    The vegan internet is abuzz over Penn Jillette's (of Penn and Teller fame) recent weight loss and his current plant-based diet. But when it comes to celebrities, weight and veganism, I'm always more than a little cautious. Here are three reasons why I think it's a mistake to view Penn's experience as good PR for […] (...more)

  • Vegan Diets to Reduce Colon Cancer Risk
    The latest findings from the Adventist Health Study-2 (AHS-2) found that people who ate plant-based diets—which included vegans, lacto-ovo vegetarians and pesco-vegetarians—had a 22% lower risk of colorectal cancer (1). But when the researchers pulled the subjects apart into more specific groups, the only group of “vegetarians” with a lower risk were (...more)

  • White Rice, Resistant Starch and Vegan Diets
    One of last week's big nutrition news items was about a method to reduce the calories in white rice. Researchers from Sri Lanka found that when you add a small amount of fat to white rice during the cooking process, and then refrigerate the cooked rice for at least 12 hours, the result is a […] (...more)

  • Protein from Plants: A Primer for Vegans
    Getting enough protein on a vegan diet is pretty easy. But it doesn't mean that every single vegan meets protein needs. Eating too many junk foods, avoiding legumes, or skimping on calories can all cause protein to fall short of optimal intake. My second nutrition primer is on plant protein and vegan protein requirements. It […] (...more)

  • Pinto Beans or Tofurky? How Food Choices and Motivations Affect Vegan Health
    When it comes to vegan diets and health, a couple of misconceptions often pop up on blogs and in social media. One is that whole-food plant-based people are healthier than plain old vegans. Related to that is the belief that vegans motivated by ethics choose less healthy diets than those motivated by health. Is it […] (...more)

  • Introducing Nutrition Primers from The Vegan RD
    Many of the questions that come to me via email, this blog and through social media are ones that I've answered somewhere at one time or another—in my books, in blog posts or in other articles online. Sometimes the information that people need is spread out across several resources, though, and I thought it might […] (...more)
