Show Notes

Coach Scott shares the specifics of his own recent medical lab results to demonstrate how his body has responded to a vegan diet.

 

Feeling good is as important as positive health measures

  • Scott goes line by line through his laboratory report, showing the number count tresholds for each item. All tested within healthy ranges.
  • He asked his doctor specifically to include measures for iron, B12, protein, and sex hormones, since those are frequent targets of vegan diet naysayers.
  • Vegan diets are reputed to not provide sufficient protein or B12, yet his B12 tested well.
  • Scott eats fortified vegan foods, and drinks 1 to 2 liters of nut milk. A single cup provides 50% of daily B12 needs.
  • Scott takes no vitamin supplements.
  • Testosterone levels continue at healthy levels. Scott says he’s been tapering his dose of hormone replacement meds.
  • His BP tested as 110/70, though he regularly salts his food with plain, iodized table salt. High sodium has been associated with hypertension (high blood pressure.)
  • Hematology measures (hemoglobin, red blood cell count, hematocrit, platelets, etc.) all fell within the healthy range.
  • Scott’s lab results run counter to what low-carb diet advocates say about high carb diet effects on blood sugar, lipids, protein, and sex hormones.

Disclaimer: These are Scott’s results. While clinical studies have shown whole-food plant-based diets to be healthy, individual results may vary. Lifestyle factors, such as exercise, smoking choice, stress level and sleep, all affect overall health.
