I haven’t commented on this post at all really because I feel like if I were too I would have to “go in” on it since nutrition is huge to me. But I will make a few notes/personal observations/facts etc.
Eat a carnivore diet, and your lacking fiber and many phytonutrients that are essential to keeping free radicals from destroying your cells.
Eat too much carbs, and.. wait hold up. “Carbs”. A word tossed around these days so easily. Carbs from a slice of pie is NOT the same carbs from a sweet potato or from legumes.
Keto diets seem pretty cool. But not realistic. This world is surrounded by carbohydrates, and that’s for a reason. We do need carbohydrates. It would be silly to try and cut them out of your life. Plus, good luck maintaining healthy hormone levels For a long period of time.
Point is, Everyone can “feel good” when starting a new certain diet at first. Sure, they probably are getting more of something they were deficient in. But then, if it is not a good balanced diet, they will start to become deficient in another area later down the road.. this is why many times people “feel good” at first when starting a new diet fad.
I eat essentially a Mediterranean diet. Strongly on the vegetarian side, but I eat seafood once or twice a week. And if I was lucky enough to get meat from high quality sources were they were pasture raised and grass feed, free of hormones and antiobiotics, then I would enjoy a serving of meat once a week.
That’s my gig! I check out on all my macro and micro levels. Vitamins and minerals. Let’s not forget the micros guys. People are so worried about hitting their protein, but if your lacking B3 and B6 good luck synthesizing that protein into anything.
Oh, and for the most part, people suck at eating fruit and vegetables. And are addicted to artificial sugars and don’t have a clue. Fast food as well.
Also, screw the FDA. They don’t care about us operating optimally, they just give us RDA’s so that we can stay alive.
Look into Vitamin D for example, they don’t want everyone taking 6000 IU a day, why would they? Why would they not want everyone to have much stronger immune systems, much less carcinogenic systems, endocrine systems optimal, mood stabilized, and so forth. So instead, they tell you at your check up that your 600 IU a day is just fine! And that your doing just great!
I could go on all day. Take care of yourself gentlemen. We only have one life. Vitality is everything!
