A big welcome to Kathy Freston! You may also recognize her from the vegan episode on Oprah last year. Busy as a bee, Kathy has just released a new book, The Lean , a revolutionary and simple! Before starting this interview with Kathy, I polled the Herbies on Facebook and Twitter , asking them for interview questions. I picked the most popular ones, plus threw in a few of my own:. Fans: You're often described as a health and wellness expert. What are your credentials and how did you become an expert in your field?
I use their work and expertise to substantiate the medical soundness of The Lean plan. HH: "Diet and exercise" comes to mind for most of us when we want to get leaner, but you also recommend meditation and self-reflection in The Lean. What you eat is supremely important, but what you think and feel — what drives you to eat — is also plays a key role in weight loss. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what is within you will kill you.
I recommend that you drink 8 glasses of water, 8 times a day. This keeps your metabolism and every other system in your body running optimally. Easy peasy! Fans: How do you feel veganism and the meat industry were portrayed on the Oprah show? The Oprah show producers were committed to being fair and balanced in their portrayal, and I think they were successful. Frankly, I think seeing the Cargill kill floor was the best argument in favor of skipping meat.
For convenience? Those meat and dairy alternatives are wonderful to ease us away from animal based foods. Those alternatives harm no animals, they have zero cholesterol, less fat, and do much less harm to the environment. I think over the next 5 years, we are going to see more restaurants and businesses offering plant based options along with their typical fare. The market is going to demand it, and in order for restaurants to stay current with the changing tastes, they will begin adding things in so that there is something for everyone.
Why are flax seeds so important? I recommend adding 2 Tbs ground flax seeds to your food every day in a smoothie or soup, for instance, or mixed in with oatmeal because the fiber adds volume to your food and fills you up so you are satisfied for hours.
And flax has a powerful antioxidant in it called lignans, which are cancer preventative. Perfect weight and health are intricately connected. Thanks Kathy for a wonderful interview, you have such a happy, positive spirit -- keep spreading the word and changing lives!
