Just look at what traditional societies have done for so many thousands of years and apply it to what we’re doing today.There are many ways to eat well. Not everyone has to do exactly the same thing.Having said that these things have stayed the same over time through different traditional and evolutionary landscapes:
Real food does not have labels that say ‘healthy’ ‘low fat’ ‘all natural’.
Shop very carefully. Read the ingredients and research what you’re buying, because lets face it, we city people do not have the luxury of picking our apples from beautiful orchards.
A note here. Those rolled oats and breakfast cereals are indeed heavily processed and are an absolutely no no.
Ever heard of interminent fasting? It’s awesome because we have such structured lives. Going without a meal now and then is important because of many reasons; one of them being it teaches you to listen to your body.
Sugar and heavily processed salty foods have addictive properties. That’s why we’re not able to differentiate between real hunger and cravings. Eating nutrient dense food staves of cravings.
“Did you know that there are several well known tribes in Africa… the Masai, Samburu, and Fulani tribes… where their diet consists mostly of raw (unpasteurized) whole milk, lots of red meat, and cows blood? The typical members of these tribes eat 5x the average amount of saturated fat compared to overweight, disease-ridden Americans.
Despite their very high saturated fat intake, they display extremely low body fat levels, and heart disease and diabetes to natives of the tribe is virtually non-existent.“
An entire meal can be just some chicken with veggies on the side, or a couple of eggs for dinner, or no meal at all! It’s not complicated and you don’t really have to watch portion sizes or count calories if you’re eating real food!
