Recently, a news story came out of Italy where they are considering jail-time for vegan parents or parents that impose a vegan diet on their children. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? It really struck me on several different levels and caused me to delve in more, which then inspired me to write this article.
I have written before about the importance of eating meat and how meat is a nutrient dense food. While it is possible to be healthy without eating meat, it is quite difficult. There is just too much evidence that clearly shows that most vegetarians are deficient in important micronutrients and all vegans are deficient. And the media-driven craziness about meat causing cancer is just plain ridiculous, because it’s a distortion of the science.
Most folks exercise when it’s convenient or when they feel like it, letting their life or emotions dictate when they hit the gym. We know through good science, though, that hormone levels fluctuate throughout the day, and this influences muscular performance. So, is it possible to choose a specific time when your hormones and performance are at peak levels?
