answer-grass fed far more sustainable than ANY other form of agriculture.Look up Joel Salatin/Polyface farm.
The so called "expert" is a moron because only an idiot would deny the widespread problems gluten causes.
Geez ... this article was so standard it could go straight on a US government website. They once again mention a correlation between red meat consumption and heart disease and then try to convince people it is causation without mentioning anything about grass-fed meat.
Then they do the standard, lean proteins only! Seriously, what is going to happen to me if I eat fatty cuts of meat? It's not like fat is evil...
If people just learned that more natural, whole foods are better and to quit with the processed foods, most of our health issues would be fixed.
red meat is associated with heart disease due to it's saturated fats. This is why he said stick with lean proteins only.
Too many people on the internet are trying to re-invent the wheel when it comes to healthy dieting. This expert said nothing outside of what has been common, accepted knowledge (based on experience and study) for the past 30 years...
I also dont understand where you are coming from here with the gluten argument. The expert promoted lean meats, veggies of all types and fruits, nuts etc. all of which are gluten free.
With the exception of a few grains, pretty much everything he recommended comes naturally in a gluten-free state. Your point doesn't stick, it seems?
You can eat sweet Potato on
A paleo diet. Get ya facts straight
Red meat is only associated with heart disease and cancer because most places serve it as a hamburger with fries fried in artificial fats and water filled with tons of artificial sugar. Red meat is probably the single most healthy food there is, and (natural) saturated fat reduces occurrences of heart disease. Many studies deliberately group saturated fat in with partially hydrogenated oils because they are chemically similar, despite that fact that being chemically similar means pretty much nothing in terms of how they affect the body.
^spot on. Great to see someone that doesn't just follow the standard national guidelines. In fact, I believe we are fat deficient.
Medical professionals have been feeding us this garbage for years. Thanks to their advice, obesity has skyrocketed.
By the way, not all adherents to the paleo diet avoid dairy and potatoes in reasonable amounts.
No one eats a wholesome meal anymore - it's usually loaded with refined carbs, small protein portions and loads of fats of all types with little or no fiber. Sure, we need fats but when 40-50% of our diet is made up of fats, that isn't healthy. Not to mention the other 30% is made up of refined carbs, which might as well be fat in itself. That will only make you fatter. I realize that most on this board follow a slightly stricter protocol than that metioned above but the general public pretty much follows this to a T.
To each their own with an opinion I guess but seriously strength and mass training are thrown out on a keto diet. You need elevated glycogen levels to perform high-intensity workouts, especially bodybuilding style training. If you are an athlete, this rings even more true. I'm not saying you can't be productive in any way on keto, I'm just saying for certain goals, and for a well-rounded nutrition, a large portion of carbs should be present and fats should be kept at or below 1/3 of your diet.
Obesity started rearing its ugly head when the agricultural age was upon us. Attempting to find faster easier ways to feed mass amounts of people.
Don't get me wrong, it has helped world hunger 1000x over. But, our society has adopted such food as the staple of all diet.
Saturated fats are not the devil as the FDA lead people to believe. In fact, eat to low of Sat fats, and watch your hormonal levels become unbalanced quickly (Testosterone drops like a rock).
To anyone who says sat. fats are bad, I say Coconut Oil.
When you say Coconut Oil, are you referring to the MCT that resides in it? MCT oil, while being saturated, cannot be classified as such since it is a medium chain and therefore has an entirely different metabolic pathway and purpose for the body. MCT oil, which is in coconut oil, is the only reason coconut oil is so good for you. And honestly, why consume coconut oil for the MCT when you can just buy pure MCT oil and ditch the long-chain triglycerides?
I'm not arguing against dietary and long-chain saturated fats because I honestly don't know enough about them to decide whether they are good or bad to have in large amounts. I am however making a comment about Coconut Oil's awesomeness, which isn't really coconut oil but MCT's that make it awesome.
oh the bro'lore..it burns..
what part is bro'lore.
