healthy eating made easy

YOU’LL LIKELY EAT MORE FOOD, NOT LESS Whole or minimally processed plant foods are dense in nutrients, not calories. As you adjust to this new way of eating, you may find yourself feeling a little hungry shortly after a meal. Pay attention to your body’s signals, and eat more food if you’re hungry! Over time, you’ll reach a point where you know how much to eat to be comfortably satiated. SAY NO TO OILS Vegetable oils may be healthier than butter, but that doesn’t make them health foods. Unlike the whole foods from which they’re pressed (olives, nuts, avocados, etc.), oils are highly refined and dense with calories, not nutrients. Eat the olives, nuts, and avocados instead.

Q) Is a completely plant-based diet safe for young children? A) A growing body of research supports well-planned vegan diets for kids of all ages. One of these is the 2016 position paper on vegetarian diets from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, which states that vegan diets “are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes.” Furthermore, children raised vegan tend to grow up leaner, healthier, and with longer life expectancies. Just be sure they get a vitamin B12 supplement. —Lauren Panoff, MPH, RD Q) Why isn’t fish on the WFPB menu? A) Many people equate eating fish with doing something good for their health.

6 things that happen when you stop eating dairy

1 LOWER CANCER RISK Several studies have found an association between dairy foods and elevated risk for hormone-sensitive cancers. According to a 2017 study published in Current Developments in Nutrition, eating cheese was shown to increase breast cancer risk while eating yogurt reduced that risk. High-fat dairy has been linked to higher risk of mortality after a breast cancer diagnosis, according to a 2014 study. Drinkers of whole milk had a significantly higher mortality risk from prostate cancer, a 2016 study found. And three or more daily servings of milk appeared to slightly increase the risk for ovarian cancer in a 2016 analysis. Cow’s milk, even if it’s labeled “organic” or “no hormones added,” contains hormones such as estrogen and progesterone, which are naturally produced by cows, says Houston physician Sofia Pineda Ochoa, MD.
