    Dr. Carney, Another one of our plant-based docs likes to use as an ingredient for some of his soups "carrot juice." He suggests adding this juice will pump up the flavor of the dish. I have hesitated to add this ingredient for the reasons mentioned in this article. Am I being too cautious considering the carrot juice is part of a recipe that will have fiber added in terms of legumes or other veggies?

    • Hello Denise,

      You are hitting on what looks like a grey area based on the fact that they are not asking a person to drink the juice but instead to use it as a flavoring agent. In this case it sounds like the meal will be whole food plant based no oil and be a high natural fiber meal. So, that would be a personal choice you would have to make on whether you wanted to follow the recipe or tweak it a bit to not have the juice in it. I would be interested to know the ratio of juice to all the other ingredients.But, somehow to me this seems like something Dr. Carney would not be too worried about for most people. However, she has different answers for different people depending on the health of the person asking the question. :-)

However, I think in most cases, you could just add whole carrots and just blend them in with the rest of the liquid ingredients and not lose the fiber. Or even better, dice the carrots and add them to the soup. The more we understand the science of the nutrition, the better choices we can make.  More ...

    This study should be shared widely to all our acquaintances who think eating high fat, low carb is the way to go. The fact that "People looked better on the outside, but were "sicker" on the inside...[and] Their risks of a heart attack or stroke had gone up" needs to be understood by those undertaking paleo-ketosis type diets. Thanks for a great article Dr. Carney.

    Just as a small added note, the difference in what doctors recommend can be due to what comprises the make up of their program. Dr. Fuhrman stresses more greens and vegetables as the food you should eat the most, and makes up calories by adding more nuts and seeds, which he feels are healthier than starch heavy foods like potatoes and rice.  The more starch based doctors want more calories from starchier foods, so there is less room calorically for higher fat foods.

    'I had some questions about it, I read it as if the list on the plan were to be included , not just the only foods to eat ?'

    Flora if you are doing an elimination diet the foods on the list are the only foods you eat, and then you see how you do on them.  Then over time you add in another food and see how that affects you.  In that way you can hopefully see what foods are causing you problems.

    I run a whole plant-based cooking club that teaches people how to "love food that loves them back"--how to eat more vegetables, fruit, whole grains and beans, with no added refined oils or animal products. It has been an incredible journey, sharing what I have been learning and how it is changing my own health for the better. We also have a Facebook Page (Flint New Start Cooking Club) and a website--newstarthealthbites.com 

    But I want to be able to reach more people and be a more effective health educator. So today, I have begun the plant nutrition course offered by T. Colin Campbell and his team. It has been an awesome day studying the first module of this course and I look forward to how this is going to expand my opportunities to help more people discover the benefits of a whole plant based lifestyle.

    Hi all, jusst joined the forum. and thought I would write a note to introduce myself.  My name is Al Viviani and I live just outside Las Vegas NV.  My wife and I started eating a healthy diet in 1990 after I read the book Fit for Life.  We joined the Natural Hygiene Society and did very well following that food plan.  We went to confrences which included meeting Dr Alan Goldhamer, Dr.Doug Graham, and Dr Joel Fuhrman among others who were the main proponents of the NHS at the time.  It was a mostly raw diet.  We did well on that diet staying trim and healthy for a few years.  Then the NHS broke up and the Drs. went their separate ways each creating their own versions of a healthy lifestyle.  Dr Graham has stayed the closest to Natural Hygiene.  

    By 1997 we had lost our way as far as eating well.  This was partially brought on by moving to Las Vegas where we had unlimited access to free food and buffets.  We never ate at home since all our food in the casinos was free. my weight at that itme topped out at 315 pounds (I am 6' tall).  Just as a note I have been overweight my entire life, although by todays standards, as a child, I would have been pretty normal.

    About 9 months after our move to Vegas I looked in the mirror and thought to myself I know better than this, and that morning announced to my wife that I was going to start a McDougall diet.  I had read some of his books, and liked the sound of a starch based diet.  We attended many advance study weekends in Santa Rosa and also did the McDougall 10 day.  We also did 2 stays with Dr Goldhamer at True North. I am now the healthiest I've ever been, cycle almost every day ablut 15 miles and weigh 175 pounds.  Dr Carney's diet reccomendations are wonderful,and they will get you healthy!  Since I've studied and lived this lifestyle for many years I am happy to help anyone with problems following this lifestyle, as I have faced most of them over the years.

    Dr. Carney,

    This is a great informative article. Hoping you can answer a question: If a person who had a kidney stone while eating an animal-based diet and was told to beware of eating certain greens with oxalates switches to a WFPB diet, what strategy should they take with greens once they are plant-based? Is it advisable to stay away from all those plant foods with oxalates? Or should they incorporate them because now their diet is much more alkaline and they have rid themselves of animal protein?
