What Makes The Best Diet?

Most people know the value of the “eat right, sleep right, exercise right” mantra, but what do they know about “best diet”? This episode looks at the science behind proper nutrition and how to make healthy choices on a budget.

How do you know if your diet is right? Your body is hard-wired as a hunter-gatherer; you’re not designed to live at a fancy conference room table full of chips, sweets, and fizzy soda. Instead, your body is primed for life on the land, where you eat plants, like meat, and where you tend your garden.

The most nutritious food will vary from one person to another based on personal genetic make-up, health, and lifestyle. We spend a lot of money on grocery stores, restaurants, and all sorts of processed ingredients because we know we will be getting something in return. If you follow the nutrition advice I give and live a healthy lifestyle, you can get most of your nutrient needs from a raw foods diet.

In this episode, the hosts talk about how they use the principles of health in their daily lives. What are some of the most important aspects of health? What factors affect the effectiveness of your health? Is the average person really any healthier than the people who are rich and famous?

The hosts talk about the scientific studies that support their belief that eating “right” is the best diet. The science of food is complicated, and there is a vast and growing literature around the effectiveness of different diets and the best way to eat.

We talk about the importance of a balanced diet to maintain health, why foods have been demonized for centuries in our society, why we must question what we think we know about human nutritional needs, the evidence that shows the value of a healthy diet, and more.

The hosts talk about why eating too much or too little of a particular food is not good for you. They also talk about the different types of foods and their benefits and detriments.

We talk about how eating foods that provide you with the maximum amount of specific nutritional quality is critical to your health. I’m especially interested in the ways that certain foods impact our ability to burn fat.

The hosts discuss why eating an abundance of high-fat, high-saturated fat foods could have negative consequences. They also discuss how some people can experience symptoms of “keto flu” or “starve mode.” I want to say that “starve mode” is actually a symptom of a healthy, balanced diet.

Dr. Mark Sisson, a doctor who is famous for his extreme Paleo lifestyle, shares his perspective on optimal nutrition. You can find out more about Mark at the Sisson Nutrition Foundation.

This is an interesting episode of health and nutrition. I was able to learn a lot from it. You don’t need to think too hard to recognize the value of a diet that provides you with all of your nutrition needs!

If I had to make a new rule for this show, I’d be honest. Don’t take a doctor’s word for it. Get a doctor who’s been in the trenches with you, and is willing to put a rigorous scientific approach to your health and nutrition! If you don’t have access to a doctor, I suggest getting one. You’ll benefit from their opinion more than you will at a “doctor’s house.”
