The Howard Stern Show Wednesday. The newly fit, trim, and vegan, Robin Quivers, relayed a unique theory on heat and diet. Here’s the transcript:
Robin Quivers: My vegan-friends sort of laugh at this time of the year. I was with one of them the other day and they said, “All the meat-eaters complain about the heat.”Now, just the other day I was thinking, “Man, it’s really hot out, but it’s not really bothering me.” And I eat a vegetable-based diet. So, could Robin’s friend be onto something? I asked Dr. Fuhrman and here’s what he had to say:
Artie Lange: What does that mean?
Fred Norris: Stop it!
Artie Lange: But could somebody explain to me what Robin just said? Do vegan-people not get warm or something?
Robin Quivers: This vegan was claiming to me that meat-eaters can’t stand the heat because digesting protein heats up the body and [meat-eaters] start to faint when it gets this hot and vegans are walking around no problem.
Howard Stern: That’s why lions always have to sleep in the middle of the day, they’re eating so much f**king meat.
Artie Lange: Do you hear Fred’s commentary on this? I agree with him completely.
Fred has been playing coo-coo sound effects the whole time.
Fred Norris: That is the silliest thing I have ever heard.
Robin Quivers: I didn’t say it. I’m just telling you what was said to me.
This is true. When you are thin and eat healthfully (mostly plants) it lowers your basal metabolic rate (slowing the aging process), which means that the heat does not bother you, but you become more sensitive to cold.Hey now! Looks like the beautiful Mrs. Florentine—oops—I mean, Miss Quivers is onto something. Go Robin, go!
