Of course, the atkins approach is the best way for an obese person to lose weight in the short run and get into a healthier lifestyle with less processed foods in their diet. But as I examine myself and my own health journey, I notice that all this grain and sugar, even whole grain and natural sugar, is preventing me from getting to my goals. Something has to change.
The Paleo Diet is a simple concept. Let’s eat the way primitive people eat, since they didn’t have all the chronic, degenerative diseases that modern man has. Of course, there is a lot of variance between populations of cavemen in antiquity and aborigines in the modern day. There is no one Paleo Diet. But the basic premise is to remove the foods that are intrinsic to modern civilization and see what happens.
Dairy is not natural to consume after infancy. Beans and Grains are cheap filler hybridized by agriculturists in previous millenia in order to be an easy way to meet the caloric needs of a growing population. White sugar is a drug.
These days, people eat way too much, not too little. They’re dying from overnutrition, not malnutrition. They’re wrinkly faces indicate that they’ve eaten too many calories in too short a time. Too lengthen thy life, lessen thy meals.
I guess all this bias I’ve learned in favor of veganism is just leftist propaganda, as if I wasn’t inundated with enough right wing propaganda from the mainstream media. Meat, eggs, and fish is not only good for you, it’s great! I shouldn’t be afraid or ashamed to eat animal foods, there’s nothing wrong with it. We are the apex predator, not a species of chimp or gorilla shitting in the woods.
Atkins diet is one way to lose weight, but it is temporary. With the Paleo Diet, it goes by what food groups you eat, day in and day out, and doesn’t bother with counting anything. The foundation of the diet should be meat, eggs, fish, vegetables, fruits, and nuts, and not much else. Don’t restrict carbs at all, do what you feel.
So I know what I am going to do, moving forward, with summer coming up soon. Hopefully I will get into optimal health and shape by beach time.
