Saturday Morning Reflections – April 1, 2023

The more I learn about the human body, physiology, and disease pathology, the more I am convinced that there is no one diet that will fit all.

Yet, here we are on F-Book where influencers abound, preaching their own take on diet and lifestyle in a way that would make most believe that there actually is a one size fits all diet and lifestyle. And these individuals might actually believe their own press.

I speak from experience because I’ve done my fair share over the years.

We are all as different internally as we are all different externally and visibly.

If one wishes to live a longer and healthier life, I highly recommend reading the book The Blue Zones and implementing the diets and lifestyles of the people that are written about in this book.

For me, that looks like a whole-food diet coupled with daily exercise and lots of stretching, topped off with a full-body lymphatic massage(self).

There will be individuals you meet who can thrive on a vegan diet, a frugivore diet, a pescatarian diet, and so on. Personally, I would steer clear of keto and carnivore diets for anything other than weight loss, and only for a limited time. These last two do work really well at helping individuals lose weight, but in the long run they will result in deficiencies and malnourishment.

And most importantly, LISTEN TO YOU BODY!!!

When it comes to diet and lifestyle choices, it has two messages for you pleasure and pain. If you are doing things the wrong way, you will find yourself in a state of discomfort or even acute pain. If you are doing things the right way, your body will reward you with dopamine. Narcotic use excluded…LoL
