Why Veganism RUINS Your Brain

By Dave From Paleohacks

Did you know there’s NEVER been a culture that survived without eating animal products in the entire history of mankind? But that lifestyle sure is trendy now. You don’t have to look hard to find someone swearing up and down how great their “animal-free” vegan diet makes them feel. Usually they try to get YOU to start eating like them too…

Most vegans telling you this don’t exactly look like fitness models. A lot of them are “skinny fat”—without an ounce of muscle on their bodies. But they aren’t just unhealthy on the outside. They’re sick on the INSIDE too. The way they eat ruins their brains.

Did you know that meat, fish, and eggs are the ONLY concentrated sources of vitamin B12, vitamin D, and omega-3 fats around? And that those nutrients play KEY roles when it comes to brain health? Vegans don’t eat any of these things, and they pay the price...

But you don’t have to. Let’s find out the truth about veganism (and a better way for you to get healthy):

Veganism Starves Your Brain of Vital Nutrients

You can only get some nutrients (like vitamin C) from plants…

But there are others you can only get from ANIMALS.

So when you ELIMINATE one of these food groups—like vegans want you to do—you can only imagine the disaster that occurs in your brain.
One of the biggest nutrients vegans miss out on? Vitamin B12.

Every cell in your body uses vitamin B12. It’s especially important for keeping your brain working properly.

A study published in the journal Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism found that 92% of vegans DON’T have enough vitamin B12! That’s a recipe for fatigue, memory loss, and all kinds of other neurological problems.

It takes YEARS for ex-vegans to build their low vitamin B levels back up. One study compared kids who used to be vegans with kids who always ate meat…

The ex-vegans had worse “fluid intelligence” and “short-term memory”—even years after they quit vegan diets.

Omega-3s fatty acids protect you against diseases, depression, and even ADHD…

Vegans aren’t getting NEARLY enough of those, either. You can get some from plants, but it’s much harder for your body to process them from plants than animals.

A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that vegans have around HALF the omega-3 levels that meat-eaters do!

Veganism Isn’t A Shred Healthier Than Eating Meat

Vegans love to say they live longer, healthier lives than people who eat meat…

Lies. Despite what vegans say, there are ZERO controlled trials showing veganism is healthier than eating meat.

They might throw some studies at you… supposedly “proving” their lifestyle is the best. But the studies they use DON’T show that vegan diets lead to better health.

Vegans also usually don’t smoke. They don’t drink much, and they exercise. So it’s impossible to prove their DIET (instead of their lifestyle) makes them healthy.

The vegan diet might be better than the typical diet “mainstream” nutrition groups recommend. But practically any other diet is better than that nonsense.

There’s NO scientific reason to avoid eating animals—especially when they give you so many nutrients your brain NEEDS to work.

Does taking HANDFULS of supplements to make up for all the nutrients you’re missing out on sound like the “best” way to eat to you?

You deserve better than that…

“Isn’t There a Better Way?”

If you care about your brain working right, veganism is a perfect example of what NOT to do.

But you’re probably wondering what you should do instead…

There’s a better way—a way based on THOUSANDS of years of real-life experience.

The PaleoHacks Cookbook shows you how to embrace that new way of life.

It’s all about eating how your ancestors used to eat. When you eat REAL foods you were meant to eat (including animals), great things happen. Your brain hums along without a hitch. You wake up in the morning with boundless energy. You feel (and look) younger.

With nearly 200 recipes to choose from, it’s simple to find plenty of healthy, delicious meals that boost your brain—and your body.

The #1 Biggest Paleo Mistake (and How to Avoid It)

By Dave From Paleohacks
Creator of the Paleohacks Cookbook

If you’re tired of low energy and crash diets, “going paleo” is one of the best things you can do for your health…

But you can only pull it off if you avoid the common mistakes people make along the way.

There are plenty of places to go wrong, but one mistake TOWERS above the rest.

If you’re doing this (a lot of people do without even knowing), you’re setting yourself up to fail.

But if you can AVOID this mistake… you’ll put yourself on the fast track to better health.

Are You Making This Fatal Paleo Mistake?

The most dangerous paleo mistake people make?

Seeing it as a DIET instead of a LIFESTYLE.

When you start a diet, you go into it with a few expectations. It won’t be fun. You’ll be hungry all the time. And most importantly, the diet will END.

Paleo is much more than that. People who succeed with it are in it for the long haul…

Maybe they want to lose weight or cure a health problem, but that isn’t the ONLY thing that drives them.

People who succeed with paleo understand it’s a new way to live. It doesn’t stop after a few months… or once you reach a certain goal.

Why Seeing Paleo as a “Diet” Sets You up to Fail

When you’re dieting, it’s easy to stick to the program for a few weeks. That’s when your motivation is high…

But it gets harder as the days go by. Strict diets are BORING; you end up eating the same things over and over. Until you go off the rails and binge on some pizza or ice cream.

After that, it’s easy to blame yourself for not being disciplined enough. Then you give up on the diet altogether.

Sounds depressing, doesn’t it?

It doesn’t have to be. Not if you see “going paleo” as a lifestyle change…

Turning Paleo into a Healthy Lifestyle That Lasts

One thing is GUARANTEED when you go paleo: you’ll slip up sometimes.

That’s OKif you see paleo as your new lifestyle. Instead of beating yourself up, you can learn from your mistakes and make small adjustments moving forward.

Feeling hungry after your workouts?

No problem. Try adding some starchy vegetables into your diet after you train.

Tired of getting off track when you eat lunch at work?

No worries. Figure out a way to bring paleo leftovers from home.

These are the kinds of little tweaks you can make over time to maintain success. There’s no pressure to follow an insane diet; just gradual improvements that pay off with a happier, healthier life.

There’s nothing stopping you from “dipping your toes” into paleo either. You can ease into your new lifestyle at whatever pace you’re comfortable with.

How to Quit “Dieting” and Jumpstart Your New Lifestyle

If you’re ready to stop spinning your wheels and FINALLY get the health you deserve, it’s time to ditch “dieting” for good.

It’s time to start a new lifestyle.

The PaleoHacks Cookbook can help.

It’s designed to make your lifestyle change as painless and fulfilling as possible.

Maybe you don’t know where to start. Changing your lifestyle can sound scary… but it DOESN’T have to be. The nearly 200 recipes in the cookbook are healthy, delicious, and 100% paleo. No need to worry about getting bored like you did with “diets.”

And it doesn’t matter if you’re busy or new to the kitchen. The cookbook breaks down how to prepare every dish step-by-step. All you have to do is follow along… and enjoy the delicious meals time and time again!

The 3 WORST Ways to Cook Your Vegetables (Plus the 3 Healthiest Ways)

By Dave From Paleohacks
Creator of the Paleohacks Cookbook

Did you know that HOW you cook your vegetables has a HUGE impact on your health? If you cook veggies the wrong way, they lose a lot of the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. You end up "short changing" yourself… just because of the way you prepare your food!  

It's amazing how many people (and restaurants) are doing this. You might be doing it right now. 

Some of the so-called "healthy" ways to cook veggies are actually some of the worst ways you can prepare them. 

There are a lot of MYTHS going around and it’s crucial to know how to cook your vegetables to get the most health benefits.

Which ways should you AVOID?

The 3 Worst Ways to Cook Your Vegetables

1. Boiling

 Boiling is, hands down, the WORST way to cook your vegetables.

You can only boil at very high temperatures and this takes longer than cooking vegetables in other ways, leaving them exposed to vitamin and mineral damage.

The biggest issue with boiling: you have to submerge the vegetables in water.

After most people boil vegetables, they drain the water and toss it out without a second thought…

But they don’t realize they’re “throwing out the baby with the bathwater” -- key nutrients from vegetables they just prepared!

You can avoid this if you keep the boiled water and use it in a soup or stew. But if you just boil vegetables and pour the nutrient-rich water down the sink, you’re missing out.

A combo of high heat and water loss make boiling a BAD choice compared to the other ways on the next page.

2. Roasting

“Lot-fat” fanatics praise roasting as one of the healthiest ways to cook vegetables because it uses dry heat and avoids oils.

You don’t have to add water like you do with boiling, which makes it easier to save vegetables’ key minerals. That’s definitely a plus.

On the other hand, roasting is usually done at high heat for a good amount of time. This causes some of the vitamins in vegetables to break down.

So the verdict on roasting: it’s better than boiling vegetables, but it isn’t the best way to save the most nutrients.

3. Microwaving

Microwaving vegetables exposes them to high heat for short periods of time. This intense heat can make vegetable nutrients break down.
Plus, microwaves don’t just destroy nutrients. The heat can leach toxins (like BPA) from microwavable containers into your food. Those toxins have been linked to digestion and autoimmune issues—even cancer!

It’s also hard to cook with microwaves. A lot of vegetables come out mushy or dry. There are hot and cold spots. No one wants to eat veggies if they taste like cardboard.

Finally, there’s still A LOT we don’t know about how the radiation from microwaves could harm the body over a lifetime of use…

Microwaving vegetables is convenient, but it isn’t a good way to go. You have better options.
