The Human Diet and Lifestyle podcast

Ever since the paleo diet hit the news and the internet, different iterations and ‘spins’ on that format have appeared endlessly.  Even at the supermarket, I see magazines in the checkout lane, screaming KETO in large print!  “Eat FAT FAT FAT!” is all around, along with Carbs are death!

On the next magazine, Ozempic the diet drug is touted. “ Get skinny fast!”  Really?  They neglect to mention that not only do you need to take the drug for LIFE, but also that you lose muscle as well as fat!  (What a wonder drug is THAT??!!

Actually, nothing has really changed.  The Paleo Diet is still the ancestral human diet, and drugs and ketone inducers should be ignored.  The Carnivore diet of all animal products, primarily beef, can be great temporarily, as a kind of reset. But really, an ancestral human diet, a paleo diet, is our long-term sweet spot; a place that humans can live forever.  In  fact a place where humans have lived forever, and where we can maintain healthy, happy bodies of vigor and resilience for our whole life!

All we have to do is eat real, nutritious foods of natural meats and seafood, with a mix of vegetables and some fruits and nuts.  Have full fat dairy in the form of cheeses, yogurt, and kefir, and add in exercise of strength training, small amounts of running, and walking, preferably barefoot on the grass.  Sleep a good eight hours per night in a blackened room, without checking the clock during sleeping hours!  (Really, don’t look at the clock at night.  That only puts you into a ‘doom loop’ where you constantly are checking with mental gymnastics as to ‘how many hours are left til I have to wake up’…. This alone ruins your rest and sleep.  Set an alarm if you want or need to- but don’t check that clock every time you awaken for a minute!  Changing this one habit alone completely rescued my nightly sleep…

Stretch daily!  Morning stretches done daily in front of the TV, along with a dedicated strength session in your yard, deck, garage or basement are completely mandatory for every human.  Without such daily attention to your very humanity, and you will start to break down, slowly but surely.  Let your muscles atrophy and so too does your brain, bit by bit.  

The human body is an intricate balancing act of the proper nutrients, consumed by a body that is stimulated by the proper activity to require those nutrients to fuel and rebuild a sophisticated animal machine.  It’s kind of like the ‘Dance of Life’!

As for drugs, as in ‘diet drugs’?  They don’t belong in your human body!  In fact- NO DRUGS BELONG IN THE HUMAN BODY!  That is the ideal, now and forever.  If you are taking drugs, either recreational or prescription- get off of them!  God made your body as is; he never required man-made drugs for you to thrive.  TAKE NO DRUGS!

The same goes for surgeries.  Most surgeries are optional, and are a way for clinics and hospitals to MAKE MONEY.  For instance, you can reverse the need for knee surgery replacement with exercises shown by Ben Patrick on the website.  Many drugs and surgeries deal with conditions that can be rectified using natural methods that aren’t so invasive, expensive, and destructive of the body as those from the clinics!

But all of that aside: just lead a natural, ancestral life!  Be outside in nature, as much as possible.  Garden, play and relax in your yard.  Get lots of sunshine, and keep chemicals OFF of your lawn and garden.  Be a keen observer of nature- birds, deer, and all the wildlife in your area.  Relish it, it is TRUE beauty!
