Wailuku: The Optimum Diet for Feeling Fantastic (Free Vegetarian Society of Hawaii Lecture)
Jerome Kellner presents: The Optimum Diet for Feeling Fantastic
People who eat a whole food, plant-based diet are not only healthier but feel better overall than non-vegans. They feel better mentally, have less depression and anxiety, fewer stress problems, and even better interpersonal relationships. They tend to enjoy life more and have a better social life than before becoming vegans.
Key reasons for this are in the diet itself. Fruits and vegetables contain high levels of vitamin C, an important co-factor in the production of dopamine, the neurotransmitter that underlies motivation and promotes engagement by adding attraction or zest to life. Antioxidants in plants such as vitamins E and C, and serum carotenoids reduce bodily inflammation, which is thought to protect against depression.
This talk explores these and other reasons why a whole food, plant-based diet is not only healthy, but also the optimum diet for feeling fantastic.
