This is what is where people get it all wrong when they want to jump onto health fads….Most people thing there is a magic silver bullet that can help them lose weight or get good skin. It might actually be a healthy thing they jump onto but what they don’t realize is that it is a LIFESTYLE.. not just drinking a smoothie in the morning then eating your indomie all day with unclean meats like chicken that is not kienyeji. Then you eat very little vegetables or none and when you eat veggies it is lettuce which almost has no nutrients and certainly no flavor.
You have to look at the big picture. Everything you do or not do adds up into your health and it has to be long term. Yes if you start drinking fresh green juice today you will feel much better immediately but to really get the real benefits you have to make it part of your daily routine.
Back To The Roots
Any traditional diet is healthy. I like the modified paleo diet because it is the most traditional, it is delicious and it makes me feel amazing. Paleo is basically eating clean meats/seafood, organ meats, bone broth, loads of fresh dark leafy green veggies, fruits, herbs, root vegetables and very little modern foods like brown rice, wholegrain and fermented foods.
This is what the humanoids have been eating for 2 – 3 million years so our bodies are more adapted. Scientists say that we have not changed much genetically but our diets have changed so much in the last 10 000 years and that is why so many people have food allergies and many modern diseases.
African traditional diets are amazing, which are kinda paleo too. Japanese diets, Mediterranean diets, even Native American diets, especially Southern American…you know the Incas and other legendary warriors.
Do some yoga, home work outs, walking, swimming in natural waters (swimming pools are full of chlorine and chemicals that you don’t want in your body – I used to swim a lot and I felt like crap so I stopped). Dancing is also great because music is therapeutic so you are killing two birds with one stone.
