The Optimal Human Diet for Health:

Folks: I have been studying and examining diet since the 1980s. I have personally experimented with numerous approaches to diet. I have personally a been a "vegan", a "vegetarian", etc. I have practiced and recommended various dietary approaches over the years including the "USDA", "Macrobiotics", "The Zone", "Atkins", "Mediterranean", "Nourishing Traditions" and more. As a clinician, after years of studying nutrition and reading hundreds of scientific articles and many dozens of books re. diet/nutrition, I have become absolutely convinced of 2 things: #1 Poor diet is probabaly the number one cause of chronic illness and premature death in the USA and #2: The mainstream (government and healthcare system) recomendations for eating are not only substantially flawed, these guidelines are causing much of our ill-health! I believe there is "one best diet" for nearly all human beings! Its technical name is the "modified paleolithic diet" and it is known popularly as 'The Paleo Diet' (other names: Paleo/ Primal/ Innate/ Ancestral Diet, etc). The links below link to resources regarding the way of eating. This diet, with slight variations, is the OPTIMAL diet for MOST PEOPLE: Men, women, children, old, young, athletes (both strength and endurance), etc. There is a lot to learn but, once you get the basic concepts, this way of eating is very simple. I hope that you read, learn and get inspired to change the way you eat. I also recommend a limited amount of science-based nutritional supplements for everyone, everyday. To learn more about what supplements I recommend click HERE. Come to my class to learn more!! Eat well to be well! Also, remember that I do wellness coaching, which includes nutrition consulting/coaching.
