Keto Buzz Think about how long eating a cup of strawberries takes, and then think about how long drinking the equivalent requires. You need much more fruit in a smoothie that goes down much quicker than chewing the solid form. Plus, some juices aren’t made from 100 percent pure fruit juice. Final Thoughts on Plant-Based Diet and Breast Cancer Breast cancer can either be classified as estrogen receptor-positive (ER-positive) or estrogen receptor-negative (ER-negative). Estrogen receptor-negative tumors are significantly less likely to respond to hormone therapy than ER-positive tumors. Researchers found two compounds that could be used together to “turn on” the ER gene in ER-negative breast cancer so the cancer could then be treated with estrogen receptor inhibitors. The two compounds are sulforaphane from cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli sprouts and polyphones from green tea. A healthy plant-based diet includes cruciferous vegetables, green tea and other polyphone-containing foods, healthy fats, fruit and whole grains and skips the soy, vegetable oils and fruit juices. Supporters of the very low-calorie “military diet” claim that you can lose up to 10 pounds in less than one week if you follow the diet precisely. But can you actually lose 10 pounds in just three days, and if so, is it even healthy to do so? Many experts believe that when people lose weight very quickly due to severely restricting their calorie intake they are actually losing a combination of water, some fat mass and also some muscle mass. (1) A fast decline in water that’s stored inside muscles and other tissues is likely the primary reason that someone can drop pounds so quickly when following a calorie-restrictive plan like the 3-day military diet. The problem with “crash diets” is that once the diet ends and people return to their normal ways of eating, they are likely to gain back most or all of the lost weight. Knowing that, is the military diet a weight loss plan that is effective and worth a try, or just another quick-fix diet fad? What Is the Military Diet?
