Mccoy and others;

The main food I eat that is not fruit or vegetables grains and seeds is yogurt. I read many times about the benefit of live cultures in yogurt and it is tasty in blended drinks with fruit or mixed with honey and fruit. What do u now think of yogurt?

Steve, I've been reading a lot nutrition topics recently.....
On the nutrition standpoint, the role of fruit and vegetables is clear. The primates eat fruit, foliage, tender sprouts, nuts, some insects and occasionally meat. The early hominids had a similar diet, adding tubers and roots, wild plants, legumes and cereals, honey. Very occasionally meat. Meat became prevalent only in some specific times and areas. Our system is built to digest everything but optimal health is achieved only when we eat what we've been eating for the most of 8 million years (from the start of primates evolution). This is also what implies Sri yukteswar in his holy science.

Also, A very interesting model which came out from my studies: primates & hominids evolved in symbiosis with plants, feeding on plant-based food. This has caused our need for particular hormetic and xenohormetic pthytochemicals, those toxins produced by plants which trigger in our body genetic expressions and metabolic mechanisms which prevent cancer and degenerative disease. In a few words, if we want to fight most diseases, we need or we are helped by specific phytochemicals.

These phytochemicals are abundant in plant-based foods, wild plants & berries, and many spices. I'm currently on prevention mode, on what I call an hormetic-xenohormetic diet (HXH diet, acronym I'm using).

I still think it's an excellent food, preferably unsweetened or with a little of our good quality honey, fullfat has an awesome taste.

Before eliminating dairy products, I used to make my own kefir, which has has the added benefit over yogurt of having often K2 (menaquinone) vitamin, which is pretty valuable. Besides, it is very unexpensive and easy to prepare.
Now sometimes I eat soy yogurt, which is by no way is as good as milk yogurt.

I quit eating dairy products because of the estrogens in milk and derivatives, that's unavoidable. They pose an hazard of prostate cancer or benign prostate hyperplasia. I was feeling some tiny nagging aches at my prostate plus had a too frequent urination, so, got concerned and eliminated any potential risk, plus am taking lots of preventive natural foods. The aches have gone away, don't know if the cause was my dietary change or not.

The phytoestrogens in soy, fava beans and other legumes compete with the other estrogens of other provenance, binding to receptors but lacking the same detrimental effect.

I lost a little weight, 2-3 pounds (which is not a desirable outcome to me) but am feeling pretty good.

I have always wondered about this; how much are people different in their eating for personal health? How much is there mutual benefits to eating some foods and avoiding others. It seems like there is general consensus to stay away from meat and even fish by gurus and master's. How do I notice this? Because there is never any fish or meat served at places like Amma's retreat, Mother's Trust, SRF retreats and at the Vedanta and Hari Krishna centers as examples.

But beyond this when we start talking about began verses vegetarian and grains, wheat and protean the Masters do not have as much to say about these things. So perhaps it becomes more of a personal preference at this point. I think it is very good that u have been able to listen to your body McCoy for early warning signs and acted on its voice. I have always heard that our bladder just doesn't work as good as when we are young compared to when we get older but I have never heard of anyone associating it with dairy products till you mentioned it in your last post McCoy.
