And BTW...

I watched a Youtube video of this vegan guy who ate over 1lb of soy, per day, for 1 month and his test levels jumped around 20%.

Now, it was hardly scientific but it 100% proves scientifically that the bullshit about soy increasing estrogen levels is absolute bullshit.

That's been long established as nonsense.

Was thinking about this thread in the shop yesterday and was seriously tempted to pick up coconut milk but i didn't want anyone to lose their shit.
Ugh, packaged coconut milk..... sounds like such a good idea, but isn't.

Ok thanks for that explanation, that makes it clearer as to what the article is saying, but still just because cows milk mRNA may alter gene expression is that a bad thing, from what I've read breast milk also contains mRNA that could alter gene expression, should we stop feeding babies breast milk even though it's linked to countless benefits because of a possible change in gene expression? Alterations in gene expression can be beneficial for health, so while yes cows milk may indeed alter our genes we don't even know if it's negatively or positively?

As for Osteoporosis and there being no link to calcium consumption, did that study also factor in Vitamin D which most people are deficient in and which is required for calcium to be properly utilised for improving bone health. Doesn't matter how much calcium you consume if your vitamin D deficient.

I'm pretty sure I've read articles before about food choices effecting genes so I don't believe cows milk is the only food we consume that has bioactive compounds, so again what's the big deal? We don't know if mRNA does effect gene expression negatively or not and even if it does, cows milk is just one in likely a number of foods we consume that does this.
The point is that cow's milk isn't helping with osteoporosis. I assume vitamin D was a controlled variable and/or present in the milk.

The mRNA from a human mother's milk would benefit a human baby. The mRNA from a cow's milk into an adult human is an area of concern. That isn't the same system as with other foods.

I have both Almond and Coconut Milk in the fridge. I use them for different purposes (usually smoothies) but also do drink whole Milk. I doubt i'll be able to eschew it completely - though I'm not really trying too. I normally have two glasses of it a day, morning and night w/ Ovaltine or Nesquick (lol). It's been part of my routine since I was a child. Cow Milk doesn't give me any issues.

Collegan supplements.

Spent fuckin ages researching (watching youtube and shit) and I'm convinced of itbenefits in regards to skin, hair and nail health. It definitely (or maybe) promotes and protects youthfulness.

However, there's no vegetarian source for this which is extremely disappointing and racist.

Worth looking into though for all you as you all probs have fuckin blotchy skin, yellow nails and shite, limp hair.

Been eating a lot of peanut butter powder.

That stuff is fuckin amazing.

All the flavour of PB but only around 20% the calories. Not that PB is unhealthy as it's all good fats but it is very calorie dense so if you're wanting to lose a few lbs but still want that PB flavour in shakes, smoothies, sauces or whatever it's a great product, man. Still very high in protein too.

New guidelines to my diet going forward.

For dinner and lunch:
2 days a week - Purely vegetarian meal
2 days a week - Fish based meal (w/carbs and veg)
3 days a week - Meat based meal ( with carbs and veg)

Multivitamins are actually bad for you if you have a remotely decent diet. If you literally lived off crisps, oven chips and takeaway pizza then it would be worth it, however not only is there zero evidence that multivitamins are good for people with normal diets (never mind decent diets) the available data actually shows that they have a negative impact on health.

The entire industry is a sham.

This is really interesting article on the origins of this crap and it provides some links to large studies that show the flaws behind it...

I agree.

Just eat you veg and fruits and you should be fine.

I've never taken vitamins in my life and my overall vitamin levels are generally good. Because I eat veg and fruit everyday.

What's the motivation behind that?

Just trying to be more balanced or environmental or what?

Just remember to get your protein in your veggie meals, man. This is the mistake a lot of people make and it leaves them unsatisfied but it's usually their own fault.

I've been eating more veggie meals recently and just noticed how much better I felt, more awake, more alert and generally just feeling better. Almost a cleansed feeling. Sometimes after a protein(meat) and carb laden meal I can feel really lethargic.

As for the fish, I like fish, it's good for you and I live on a fucking island with lots of good produce that's not necessarily over-fished. So I should give it a go.

As for the protein with veggie meals, yeah I usually have lentils or chick peas throughout the salad. I also throw in some good fats typically and a small smattering of protein.

I think, overall this will be a good balance for me.

Cottage cheese as part of a salad is good and is a great protein source. Not for everyone though.

Managed to find a solid Quark source. ATG protein source. Basically 50% protein. Mix a scoop of protein in their to falvour and you've got a nearly 50g of protein snack for under 250kcals.

Yeah I like it. My missus knows all about this stuff and is pretty on the ball with good veggie foods. I typically like feta more, personally. But I think that has more calories and fat.

This thread is fucking hilarious.

I love reading ‘old’ ones that have been bumped, genuinely brilliant,over the most mundane subjects.

Kox hammington being schooled on milk by strike.

I’ve already told the vegetarian missus to fuck off her almond milk because of this thread.

No, you're too uneducated to know what mRNA is and why a lack of correlation between milk consumption and lowered osteoporosis rate is an indictment against milk's supposed health benefits.

So you respond to Kox Hamimgton?

How low is your self esteem that you don’t correct me on that?!
