6:03 am
case supply not out of a socket but through what we eat. carbohydrates are our primary source of energy they're found in various forms and almost all foods. like glucose and sweets. are for some fruit. but also as lactose in milk and starch from grains so carbohydrate containing foods don't always taste sweet. the body turns excess glucose from carbohydrates into fat that is stored in adipose tissue. indigestible carbohydrates also known as dietary fiber are found mainly in fruits lagoons and vegetables. they make us feel fuller and stimulate the gut. fats carbohydrates provide energy to the body also needs fats to make neurotransmitters and hormones

and to form cell membranes. a lot of products containing animal fat like meat or butter contain saturated fatty acids. but too much can raise blood cholesterol levels and lead to cardiovascular disease. good sources of unsaturated fatty acids are fish vegetable oils nuts and seeds. protein is the 3rd major macronutrient group. protein is made up of amino acids which are the building blocks of ourselves without protein from food our bodies are unable to produce new cells or regenerate old ones. are immune system also relies on protein stores being replenished to green antibodies. animal products are frequently high in protein but there are
6:05 am
also many plant based sources like human such as beings and lentils as well as scenes nuts and mushrooms. plenty of foods contain micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals and these are what give us solid bones good digestion or muscle recovery. healthy nutrition requires a very diet. and also drinking enough water. grains rice potatoes and legumes are a sound base for your diet include 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day plus a few protein rich products such as milk banks or someone. with a balanced diet it's ok to indulge in sweet or fatty treats occasionally. turkey has a reputation of being a meat loving country but turkish dizziness war it's full of grains and
6:06 am
legends and it's very very healthy because during for instance has no need to it it's megan and even turkey there's a growing interest in a meat free lifestyle. a butcher's shop in stumble. on display traditional turkish speciality searches subjects sausages. but none of these products come from animals. this is one of turkey's 1st began shops. it sounds plant based meat alternatives to the traditional dishes that many people assume could only be made from animal meat. cohen or turkey you just saw is certain that veganism has a future in turkey. about we are. used to we want to take
6:07 am
traditional home cooking into the future. but i think the popularizing flexitarian ism is a good way to achieve that. it can help people to move towards veganism without having to eliminate meat completely. but flexitarian as a means people go without animal products once in a while do you believe in some of their waste them with plant based alternatives once a week maybe even for a whole month. if we tell people that they've got to give up animal products completely will probably make quite a bit of resistance. to the. thing in islam as a principle covers all. lifestyle aspects abstain from using any animal products vegetarians regan's don't consume eggs or dairy products.
6:08 am
the can is in is now a worldwide movement but many vegans believe that prejudice prevents widespread acceptance in society. going very good i've tried it before but i realized it wasn't during man you. had to deal with quite a few health issues in the past which is why i don't want to live. a common fear is that vegan diets lead to nutrient deficiencies and health problems. but is there any truth in that. having a poor diet is the cause of many chronic diseases. begins in vegetarians are less likely to develop diabetes and cardiovascular diseases for example. there
6:09 am
are studies that show this. some studies even show that people who eat a vegan diet actually live longer on average. the environmental impact of livestock farming is another reason to avoid animal products research shows that on average it takes 15000 liters of water to produce just one kilogram of beef class and 80 percent of the soybeans and whole for the corn produced worldwide is used to feed animals these massive amounts of crops to feed millions of people so why continue to use animal products. when it comes to big. people's immediate reaction is that they can't give up their traditional diet. they are convinced that meat is essential. they ask
6:10 am
but where will we get protein if we don't eat eggs. they say that essential amino acids can't be found in plants but that isn't true. these are just prejudices and misconceptions. according to a report by the world health organization has even evidence that processed meat can be carcinogenic. 'd similar studies suggest a possible link between the consumption of animal products and various chronic diseases. but despite all this evidence many people find it difficult to modify their diet. since eating animal products can lead to heart disease diabetes high blood pressure disorders and problems in the digestive tract . people needn't worry that they will get sick if they stop eating animal products
6:11 am
on the contrary. but they should keep their vitamin b 12 levels in mind it's of the shouldn't get too low. but taking food supplements can prevent that. solomon. becoming a virus pandemic has also sparked a debate over the consumption of some animal products the latest report from the united nations environment program suggests that protecting wildlife habitats would reduce the risk of future pandemics it remains to be seen whether these findings will motivate more people to adopt a vegan lifestyle. meat eaters argue that a plant based diet is very boring di that it doesn't taste very good that it's missing a lot of nutrients. this is true this is what our today's talks about so let's follow or health report i mean africa and get to know. nico britain now is
6:12 am
a nutritionist and the chef and he also. he publishes videos and books on healthy eating seeking to inspire more people to opt for a life without animal products maker do your vague and so you don't eat any animal products at all. what made you decide to do that. you know i mean besides i've been a vegan since 2013 that i'm from austria where meat and dairy are a big part of the culture i used to love it especially cheese i thought life without cheese wouldn't be worth living but the more and learned about the ethical aspects of our food the more difficult it was for me to justify it for that brief moment of pleasure and ending the life of an animal or supporting their exploitation there's also the environmental aspect plus a plant based diet can be good for you but for me it was an ethical decision. and
6:13 am
they knew where they had thank you saying on the potential health benefits is if you can diet really better for you. not to get the money that's a good question with no easy yes or no answer when we look at the data vegetarian and vegan diets are a little better health on average than the traditional western mix diet especially when it comes to cardiovascular disease and metabolic disorders like diabetes. but it's and i just doing without and eat and dairy that makes the big difference. and it's a plant based diet and the focus on nutritional science is vegetarians and vegans tend to be more health conscious in general because we got many exercise a bit more smoke and drink a bit less 'd. and your health conscious you'll likely want to reduce your meat intake and. then it was that stuff if i decided to become a vegetarian or vegan for health reasons what would i need to watch out for to make
6:14 am
sure it really is healthy. because. if you remove the animal products from your diet then you need to substitute the nutrients that those foods give you with good vegetarian or vegan equivalents so if it's a vegan diet where you're no longer consuming cow's milk or chilies will you get your counseling from if you're no longer eating fish where do you get iodine and omega 3. if you don't eat red meat what's your source of iron and so on but the good thing is animal products don't have a monopoly on these nutrients if we look at the big 5 plant based food groups grains pulses fruit vegetables nuts and seeds we find we can cover the critical nutrients very well less coming up on one climbs and hops we can be a bit more specific may ask which nutrients are especially critical that we definitely need in our diet but the most critical and probably the best known is vitamin b 12 it's often consumed automatically by eating animal products but actually no nutrient no vitamin or mineral there's
6:15 am
a regionally contained in the animal vitamin b 12 for example is produced by bacteria and it actually makes no difference to our bodies whether these bacteria occur in the cows and produced by human to be 12 for the cow which would then eat the cows meat more chickens and pigs consume vitamin b 12 in their food and we then eat the meat or whether we get the vitamin through fermentation and sauerkraut for example or other fermented foods or when we take food supplements this has been out there so it's obviously makes sense to fast delve into this more deeply and know where you can get the nutrients that your body needs what about children and adolescents lots of people are critical about whether a vegetarian diet is healthy for the. big i don't know balanced diet it isn't rocket science but yes you need to know a few basics and especially with children in adolescence or also women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and if you can do a lot right and a lot wrong.
