If you do some real research on the true facts of historical eating habits of people around the world you will quickly understand why people are healthy eating what is bio-available in the region of the world they reside in. Let’s take Eskimos and look at what they eat. Did you know that they eat primarily whale blubber and sea kelp. It ranges 85% fats and protein and 15% carbohydrates. There is virtually no heart disease or cancer or any other typical dis-ease that we see in America. Lets move around the globe and go to South America where people typically eat lots of fruits/vegetables and small amounts of lean proteins. This is more like 85% carbohydrate and 15% proteins and fats. The same goes for lack of the typical American dis-ease in that part of the world as well.
Everyone throughout history has developed the ability to consume and assimilate foods from their geographic location on this planet. Hence why two groups of people such as the Eskimos and South Americans have such a dramatic different diet and yet stay healthy.
My first question I ask clients when we tackle their diet is, “what part of the world are your ancestors from”? This gives a quick guide of where to begin with what to eat and what to avoid. You can read more about this topic in ‘The Metabolic Typing Diet’ by William Wolcott. His book is very easy to understand for people unfamiliar with real nutrition, (not what is being fed to us by the U.S. Government).
A quick fact: did you know that the food guide pyramid was designed by General Mills? If your not familiar with General Mills, they produce the largest amount of grains in the U.S.
Grains are by far the leading cause of all diet related dis-eases in the country.
By the way, I spell Dis-ease the way it was originally written. It means, the body is at a dis-ease, or not at ease… Nowhere in that definition does it say that dis-ease is permanent…
I invite you to come ask me some questions if you want to know the truth about anything in Nutrition, Wellness, Fitness, and Corrective Exercise.
