J1T4H Week 35

Brenda Bradley, PhD, Certified Nutritional Health Coach –  No Diary / No Milk

Just 1 Thing (at a time) 4 Health

“Because changing habits and lifestyle is daunting without support.”

WEEK 35 – NO DAIRY / NO MILK 

Somewhere in time, it was determined that cow’s milk and dairy products would be good for human consumption. After generations of watching the effects of this thinking on our physical and mental well being, studies have concluded that it is not as good as it was thought to be.

Milk and other dairy products are the top source of saturated fat in the American diet, contributing to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and so many more chronic illnesses. Studies have also linked dairy to an increased risk of breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers.

When your health, your real wealth in life is at stake, you make things happen in order to get well. Whether your Doctor said you have to change to a WFPB diet if you want to see improvement in your health, or not, change is required. Has your change been at the push of a loved one, or have you decided, the time is now for you to make your health your priority?

Either way, it can be a challenge to find foods that are easy to make, taste good and the things you want to stick to eating because it could save your life, and because you’re tired of the physical pain of illness, or feeling bad and depressed. You want to feel better and this new diet and lifestyle could be the answer.

Featured Doctor:    Dr. Brenda T. Bradley, PhD., Certified Nutritional Health Coach

Dr. Brenda T. Bradley, Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, talks about ‘No Dairy! No Milk!’ For us, drinking milk or eating dairy could be a death sentence. Somewhere in time, it was determined that cow’s milk and dairy products would be good for human consumption. After decades of watching the effects of consuming dairy, especially milk, the results show the toll it has had on our physical and mental well-being. Studies have concluded that it is not as good as it was said to be.

Cow’s milk is mother’s milk for a 60 lb calf and was designed to help it grow into a 1000 lb adult in only months. That is very different than what humans were meant to consume.

Milk and other dairy products are the top source of saturated fat in the American diet, contributing to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and so many more chronic illnesses. Studies have also linked dairy to an increased risk of breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers.

When you are committed to your WFPB diet and lifestyle, you will seek out alternatives to diary to find what is healthy, tastes good and does your body better. There are several healthy alternatives and Dr. Bradley shares some of them in her challenge video.

In her Just 1 Thing 4 Health Challenge Video, Dr. Bradley challenges you to eliminate dairy, especially animal milk from your diet and replace it with an alternative milk option derived from nuts. She believes that when you know the real truth about milk, the cows that produce it, the effects of drinking it, and that there are tasty alternatives, you will want to make the change.

We encourage you to bring your questions and join us for the upcoming Live Q&A to increase your nutritional awareness about the impact of dairy, and why you want to eliminate it from your diet. Your WFPB journey is so much more enriched without animal milk.

Dr. Brenda T. Bradley has had a remarkable career and life that has taken many twists and turns. From being a US service member in the Air Force, to being a Certified Health coach. The one common denominator has been a desire to serve others and make the world around her a better—healthier—place to live in.

Prior to becoming plant-based for more than 8 years now, Dr. Bradley was diagnosed with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, was obese weighing 236 pounds, struggling with depression, and was pre-diabetic.

After struggling with her own health and learning about the body and what it needs to perform optimally, she made the switch to a plant-based diet. Since adopting this plant-based lifestyle, within three months she was taken off all medication and within 10 months had lost all of the unwanted weight. She felt good and felt good about herself.

The plant-based diet is the eating regimine Dr. Bradley credits for helping her not only improve her weight, but improve her immunity, mood, and overall health. Today, she helps those who are struggling to find their way through the maze of past unhealthy eating habits that have been a downward spiral in their lives, and shift to gain their own sense of empowered health on a plant-based diet.

Meet the Challenge by taking these proactive steps towards your better health.

Dr. Bradley’s Challenge to you:

Remove the animal milk from your daily intake of food. Test a healthy alternative and choose what fits your taste. After a few days, you’ll find you even enjoy the healthier milk better because you begin to feel less of the negative effects of cow’s milk.

To assist you on your journey, here are some easy to follow steps to help you meet This Week’s Challenge:

Here are some Tips to help create success for you this week, including:

If it’s been said that “Milk makes a body good.” How is it that milk is now so bad? … and how do we eliminate it from our daily intake of foods. Here are a few tips to help you:

Tip #1: The thought that your best source of calcium is milk is NOT TRUE. You can get calcium, the preferred way that your body wants to receive it, from green leafy vegetables. Eat more green leafy vegetables.

Tip #2: Try a variety of nut milks (one at a time), to find out which one you like the best. Then, retry the first one again. By the time you try the 2nd and 3rd, your taste buds will have changed and the one you tried first, that you may not have really taken a liking to, will taste different when you try it again.

Tip #3: Milk is a dairy product and eliminating milk, the glass(es) you may drink, or what you may have in cereal, or cook with, may not be as difficult as eliminating milk from the other foods that you eat. Milk is often used in making casseroles, dips, breads, sauces, and other foods. To eliminate milk, consider eliminating all dairy products and substitute a healthier alternative.

Over time, you will feel this is easier to do because you will notice the changes you experience from eliminating milk. The association between milk products (cheese, yogurt, breads, and more) and certain health conditions like type 2 diabetes, acne, kidney stones, some types of cancer, or dental issues are wide spread and curable.

**Dairy: Health food or health risk?
Harvard journalist reports, “When it comes to overall health benefits, it seems that dairy is neither a hero nor a villain.” However, FACT: dairy products create an acidic environment in your digestive system. To counteract and neutralize this environment, calcium is leached from your bones. Thus, dairy is not a good source of calcium, rather it actually robs your body of calcium. A better source is green leafy plants. [See J1T4H Week 2 when Dr. Dennis Grossman discusses osteoporosis and explains the leaching process, recommending a plant-based diet and plenty of water.]

**Is Dairy Bad for You, or Good? The Milky, Cheesy Truth
Dairy products are controversial these days. While dairy is cherished by health organizations as essential for your bones, some people argue that it’s harmful and should be avoided. One common argument against dairy products is that it is unnatural to consume them. Not only are humans the only species that consumes milk in adulthood, but they are also the only one to drink the milk of other animals. Biologically, cow’s milk is meant to feed a rapidly growing calf. Humans aren’t calves — and adults usually don’t need to grow. Before the agricultural revolution, humans only drank mother’s milk as infants. They didn’t consume dairy as adults. What changed?

**12,000+ Doctors Urge the USDA and Department of Health and Human Services to “Ditch the Dairy”
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine—a nonprofit with 12,000 doctor members—is calling on the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, which was announced on Feb. 21, to recommend to the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services that the upcoming guidelines clearly warn Americans about the health dangers of dairy products, including heart disease, cancer, and lactose intolerance. “It’s time for the Dietary Guidelines to finally make it clear to Americans that dairy products are dangerous,” says Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., director of nutrition education for the PCRM. “The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee can’t ignore the scientific evidence against dairy when it makes its recommendations to the USDA and HHS.”

**Dairy: 6 Reasons You Should Avoid It at all Costs
Dairy is nature’s perfect food — but only if you’re a calf. If that sounds shocking to you, it’s because very few people are willing to tell the truth about dairy. In fact, criticizing milk in America is like taking on motherhood, apple pie, or baseball. Weigh the facts yourself. Many are in this article.

**9 Easy Plant Milk Recipes
These 9 easy plant milk recipes are so easy to make and taste really good. These beverages are much healthier than cow milk and also cruelty-free. You can make so many different plant milks using nuts, seeds, cereals or even fruit. Plant milks that are made with nuts are preferred because of their taste and because they are creamier. Oat milk is lighter, lower in calories and also delicious. Try plant milks and avoid cow milk. You will feel better and healthier. You don’t need milk to get calcium because there are many plant-based sources of this mineral. In fact, the countries that consume the most dairy also have the most osteoporosis. Besides, it’s so easy to make plant milks at home and they are cheaper and taste much better than store bought.
