"The NHS recommends that pregnant women avoid eggs, meat and fish - and get the vital iron and vitamin B12 from other foods to ensure a healthy pregnancy."

Obviously these children should be taken away and given to someone who gives them proper care.

It was IVF, so she may have skipped the sausage.
 
2013-09-02 11:46:26 PM

Is her name Mary Moon?

FTFA: The NHS recommends that pregnant women avoid eggs, meat and fish - and get the vital iron and vitamin B12 from other foods to ensure a healthy pregnancy.

I'm sure the NHS will be interested to hear that, since their website says nothing of the kind:

How the hell much protein was she getting before the McDonald's? Obviously "vegetarian" covers a wide range of personal beliefs, but there are ways to get your protein pretty much no matter what, in ways that are sure as hell healthier than McDonald's.

Woman gets more sausage, has more babies.
 
2013-09-03 03:07:06 AM
So once her body had the needed nutrients it was able to carry a baby to term?
COLOR ME SHOCKED !!!!

Good things those experts never thought to check her diet first.

/micro nutrients are strange and poorly understood.

Female bodies deprived of sufficient nutrition can't conceive or bring to term.  A wonder that.

Sausage goes where?

The NHS does not and never has recommended anything of the kind. Its just farking stupid to suggest it, the article writer must be on crack or something.

Split peas; 20gram of protein for every 100 gram. It's not hard to get your daily protein.

She piled on 32kg (5st) with McMuffins and Big Breakfasts from McDonald's plus Marks & Spencer sandwiches and dishes from Nando's.

I think she started from "Too little body fat to menstruate." Like ballerinas and professional gymnasts.

this 'story' enraged me when I saw it this morning.

there's a middle ground between protein-deficient vegetarian and mcdonalds mainlining heffer. she gained FIVE STONE allegedy. that's not a good thing in anyone's book.

stupid biatch. stupid metro. stupid world
 
2013-09-03 05:36:49 AM
plus im sure im not the first person to point out (to ragey to read all comments) that correlation does not mean causation. especially when n=1 and the factor on your x axis is 'eating garbage'

Quote from article:  "Eating meat definitely helped me get all the protein that you need when you're pregnant."

I'm shocked!  Another misleading article about how we need a food that is directly linked to the #1 killer, heart disease, say it ain't so!

The scientific fact remains, All proteins and enzymes are made up of a smaller building blocks called amino acids.  ALL essential amino acids (otherwise known as indispensable amino acids) ultimately come from plant based sources, they cannot be manufactured within any animal (those are called "non-essential" amino acids (like taurine) and are synthesized in the liver and kidneys from amino acids that only come from plant based sources.    It is true that you can also get these essential amino acids from animal products, but only because the animal consumed them first from a plant based source, or consumed an animal that got them from a plant based source.

However, unlike plants, meat, dairy, and eggs contain cholesterol, which is directly responsible for, and directly linked to heart disease, you cannot get heart disease (the #1 killer in America, killing 1 in 4 people) without cholesterol.  Cholesterol is the fatty plaque that builds up inside your arteries, especially your heart and brain. commonly resulting in heart attack, and stroke.

You can skip the middle man (or animal in this case) at get ALL your essential amino acids directly from plant based sources, and in the process be much healthier for it.

And gassier.
 
2013-09-03 06:27:25 AM

AverageAmericanGuy: And gassier.


That's actually a myth, vegans are no gassier than meat eaters, and are actually more regular (meaning they poop more often, and usually have less gas).   This is due to the fact that all dietary fiber also comes from plant based sources exclusively, and meat, dairy, and eggs contain no fiber.  Having low fiber diets makes you less regular, and tends to increase smelly flatulence, since meat eaters often have rotting flesh in their colons, especially after not taking a dump for 5 days due to constipation.

Lusebagage: you cannot get heart disease (the #1 killer in America, killing 1 in 4 people) without cholesterol.


You clearly aren't qualified to be offering dietary advice to a pet rock, so I'm going to go ahead and ignore the babbling about teh evul cholesteroool, but I believe meat wasn't the problem here.

It was a correlation-causation mash-up with a double helping of terrible-excuse-for-bad-journalism.

For a second there, I thought that meant MacDonald's food made her have triplets.
 
2013-09-03 06:36:46 AM
'The cravings were so strong that I'd wake up in the night and make my husband go to get me a McDonald's.

An entire restaurant?? Seriously, if someone said to me, "Get me a McDonald's!", I haven't the faintest clue WTF to bring them back... One of everything on the menu, I guess?

Not to panic you or anything but you have evul cholesterool in your bloodstream *right now*! Quick. Dial 911!

You're displaying a complete lack of knowledge alongside a determined political stance which is the hallmark of woo-meisters and vegans.

Forgive me if I colour you "homeopathic vegan hippie"... It's an instinctive response. :)

For the record, there is nothing *wrong* with cholesterol. Your body needs it - adrenaline, stress and cortisol trigger its production.

While there is a strong link between *excessive* levels of cholesterol and heart disease, the source of the cholesterol, the reasons for its elevation, and the clinical impact it has is unique to each individual, which is why treatment is unique as well.

Pointing at a slab of meat and saying 'bad!' based on the vegan agenda is shamefully puerile.

Not surprising since it feels like I am giving birth after eating a McD's breakfast.

Well I never eat at McDonalds and I never give birth either!

It must be true!

from your source:
"High blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease. About half of Americans (49%) have at least one of these three risk factors.7
Several other medical conditions and lifestyle choices can also put people at a higher risk for heart disease, including:
DiabetesOverweight and obesityPoor dietPhysical inactivityExcessive alcohol use" Nothing about meat as a risk factor sunshine.  But wait there's more...

"Lowering you blood pressure and cholesterol will reduce your risk of dying of heart disease. Here are some tips to protect your heart:
Follow your doctor's instructions and stay on your medications.Eat a healthy diet that is low in salt; low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol; and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables.Take a brisk 10-minute walk, 3 times a day, 5 days a week.Don't smoke. If you smoke, quit as soon as possible."Again meat is not one of the bullet points however much you think it's in that second one. Are you going to run into problems if you only eat meat? Yea, but if you only eat carrots or only peaches or only spinach you will too.

Smoking, stress and being overweight are way harder on your heart than the odd steak.

So, in summary:

A vegetarian can't get pregnant so she starts eating sausage every day.
Sausage is made from pork.
Bacon is made from pork.
Ergo, there is nothing bacon cannot do.

Bacon: The worlds greatest food.
 
2013-09-03 07:24:57 AM
As much as I am against being a vegetarian, it's well known they find protein elsewhere. This woman is insane

All the vegans/vegatarians I know need massive amounts of dietary supplements to offset what they aren't getting from their diet; by definition they are not getting sufficient nutrition from their diet. Aren't most of these supplements made via animal products and/or with other means veganism technically find unacceptable?

Being vegan etc. can be a somewhat sustainable lifestyle choice in an industrialized Western nation but as a diet and outside of the First World this is FAIL. Even societies that aren't as meat-centric still consume animal products and do eat meat, albeit far less often.

Personally all the vegans who were worth talking to I've known realize that keeping vegan is an occasionally impossible endeavor they took on for moral reasons, and realize the lifestyle isn't meant for all. Good luck keeping vegan if you're on public aid for example.

That said if Americans just cut down on meat consumption we'd all be better off without going "full forum retard taking woo seriously". I do thank you for not posting anything about holistic "medicine" that seems to go hand in hand with this.
