Eating a Quality Animal Based Diet









Most food groups have their problems these days. The key is to understand how quality and quantity influences your health. Select wild caught cold  water, fatty fish such as sardines,  anchovies and herring. These are high in long-chained omega-3 fats, which are actually structural elements that make up your cells.

Eat organic, pastured and grass fed milk,  butter and eggs.  Cholesterol, far from being a villain, plays a key role in regulating protein pathways involved in cell signalling and is needed within your cell membranes. Cholesterol is the precursor to bile acids, so without sufficient amounts of cholesterol, your digestive system can be adversely  affected.  Your brain contains about 25 percent of the cholesterol in your body. It is critical for synapse   formation, i.e., the connections between your neurons, which  allow you to think, learn new things, and form memories.

Your body is designed to have the metabolic flexibility to use both fat and glucose for fuel — not just one or the other. Eating a high-carb diet for a long period of time results in the loss of this metabolic   flexibility, making you unable to effectively burn fat for fuel. Instead of grains, eat 8 handfuls of vegetables a day.

If ethics and animal welfare are your concerns.  There’s a tremendous difference between the life of an animal raised in a CAFO and one raised on pasture where the animals are  allowed to live a full, healthy and stress-free life.
