Need Motivation to Eat Less Meat and More Plants? Part 7 of 12

Robyn Openshaw, MSW - Sep 06, 2008 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links

Today, good stats about the fact that Americans need EDUCATING on the subject of a plant-based, whole-foods diet. (You know has an agenda to get YOU to help spread the word–and many of you already do so, brilliantly.)


98 percent of the wheat eaten in the U.S. is eaten as white flour.   Only 2 percent is eaten as whole wheat flour!   In traditional diets, 75-80 percent of total dietary energy comes from whole grains.


U.S. children who eat the recommended levels of fruits, vegs, and grains: 1 percent


American who are aware that eating less meat reduces colon cancer risk: 2 percent


American men who are aware of a link between animal products and prostate cancer: 2 percent

Tell me: How can YOU help, you being much more educated about nutrition than, well, basically almost everybody?

    How is that even possible?! I get so caught up in my own little world and think that everyone is as interested in nutrition as I am. I forget that I’m just not typical 🙂

    I have made comments on widely-read blogs about GSG, dropped the name to a few family and friends, stuff like that. Although in my case, my family probably takes everything I say about nutrition with a grain of salt because I’m always sure I have the right answer, but then every 2 years I change it. First it was vegetarianism, then veganism, then all-raw, then Weston A. Price, now green smoothies 😀

    I can help myself by eating the best food I can, and I can help my DH because I am responsible for what he eats for the most part.

    When I become slim, healthy, and filled with joy, some people may want what I have, so I can help by example possibly.

    I can not help anyone by going around pushing this and preaching that,

    telling people what they should or should not be eating, the only this is does is tick everyone off.

    No one should have to live up to my standards but me. If I am a good enough example , some will want what I have.
