This is just a short excerpt specifically talking about highly restrictive diets which are dangerously advised by influencers. A whole food plant-based diet has been determined to be healthy (and often preventative to chronic disease risk) by the most major dietetics associations for every stage of the lifespan when balanced to meet caloric and nutritional needs, and appropriately supplemented with B12.
There are many reasons why people sometimes do not thrive on a plant-exclusive diet- some of the most common include not eating enough of the foods they need to provide the nutrients required, not supplementing where needed, or consuming insufficient calories to meet their needs.
Kayla and Camilla share that it is nobody’s fault- 99.9% of us are not brought up learning how to eat this way in a way compatible with long-term health and support is frequently needed.
Additionally, there are many other factors for somebody experiencing poor health aside from diet- there can be lack of social support, the nocebo effect of people telling you things that are scientifically verifiably untrue (such as that we NEED animal protein). There are also other lifestyle factors, possibly underlying diseases, or even factors like personal and epi-gentic trauma which play huge roles in our health aside from diet. Various underlying disease states can make it hard to tolerate the high fibre from plant foods; these can be addressed with the appropriate healthcare. There is no physiological necessity for a human to consume animal products.
Kayla and Camila’s mission as plant-based health professionals is to support people in the most holistic way possible to help them thrive whilst making a positive impact on the world and animals around them.
