Today’s Diet & Nutrition, Part 2

Every month a new diet is launched that claims to be the perfect one for you to lose weight, gain muscle strength, become healthier or live longer.

.

The most media covered diets today include:

Atkins, Baby Food, Beverly Hills, Blood Type, Cabbage Soup, GI, Grapefruit, Hay, High Protein, Japanese, Low fat, Macrobiotic, Maple Syrup, Majo Clinic, Meal Replacement Shakes, Mediterranean, Metabolic Typing, Montignac, Scarsdale, Schnitzer, Skinny Bitch, Slimming World, South Beach, The Zone, Vegetarian, Vegan, Weight Watchers to name some of the weird and wonderful choices available.

.

Look beyond the surface and you’ll realise that the entire weight loss industry is based on failure.

.

Certainly there will be instances of pounds being shed, but this is usually accompanied by a strict regime of deprivation or replacement that isn’t healthy for the body.

.

Despite this I find it fascinating that so called experts are claiming their diet is best for you even though they don´t know a single thing about you.

.

One simple fact remains undeniable:

.

After decades of specialist advice, people in the western world remain overfed and undernourished.

.

.

.

The old adage

“One Mans food is another Man’s Poison” is absolutely true.

You are as unique as your fingerprints.

.

.

Why would there be a diet that fits all of us?

Some people thrive on meat; others prefer to be vegetarian or vegan. Furthermore we each have different eating habits.

You might find you digest food better in the relaxed atmosphere of home whereas someone else digests better in a noisy environment.

Some people enjoy cold foods; others thrive on a spicy cuisine.

.

.

Eskimos for example live on very high animal protein and fat but don´t suffer from heart disease or cancer because they really need this kind of slow burning foods to survive the challenging climate they live in.

.

The Hunzukuts in Asia live on a diet high in complex carbohydrates and vegetables and are known for their extraordinary health and longevity.

.

Of course there are some basic facts that need to be addressed when it comes to nutrition.

Eating food that is as natural as possible is clearly the most important one.
