Transform your life with great food!
A proven way to improve digestive symptoms
Constipation Poor Skin Chronic Infections Pain
Diarrhea Weight Gain Insomnia Allergies
Gas and Bloating High Triglycerides Anxiety Fatigue
My clients have success with these and other symptoms when they eat The Diet For Human Beings. These hearty and satisfying foods require no fasting, no hunger and no calorie counting. Eat the foods your body is built to eat and the body will begin to feel better!
I’ll explain what foods to eliminate (and why) and what foods you need to include such as saturated fat from healthy animals and coconuts. Humans have always eaten saturated fats – at least until we were told to stop eating them about 50 years ago.
You can quickly achieve health benefits including weight loss (if you need it), reduction in pain and inflammation, and better, more stable energy.
Lower your triglycerides and glucose too!
And you can do this while eating great food that won’t leave you hungry!
Let me share with you my 25 years eating this way and teaching clients how to feel better. This diet changed my life…. actually, it saved my life. And you can do it too!
This is the only Paleo Diet video on the market.
The Diet For Human Beings is my version of The Paleo Diet, and it’s how I ask my clients to eat. I made this video for my clients, but you can watch it too! In just 70 minutes, you’ll understand the importance of insulin (and why we don’t want too much of it), why cholesterol is good for us, and why Humans never ate starchy grains and sugars before.
You don’t have to read the Paleo Diet books. Watch the DVD a few minutes a day and take your time to understand it…
What’s in the Video? What’s the “BIG IDEA” all about?
There are 11 chapters titled “What’s the Big Idea?” While you’re watching, pick a few to share with friends or family.
Maybe for your Mom: “What’s the Big Idea #2? Fat Is Good!”
For your overweight friend: “What’s the Big Idea #5? Insulin Is Scary!”
Or for your cookie monster at home: “The Big Idea #6? The Trouble With Grains…”
And perhaps for you: “The Big Idea #8? Give Me Some Good Carbs“. This will explain why certain carbohydrates like vegetables are unlimited while others are in moderation.
There’s a list of all chapter summaries just below. Open that link and see all my topics!
So what is The Diet For Human Beings?
Every species has its optimal way of eating, whether it’s a Buffalo, a Wolf, or a Cricket.
The Diet For Human Beings is the way Humans are built to eat, a diet similar to the Paleo Diet, also known as an Ancestral Diet. I explain how humans ate before agriculture and the domestication of animals, and why our digestive systems prefer animal proteins, fats and fresh plants.
In fact, we evolved eating fish and animals of all kinds along with their fats and organs. Our big brains evolved on these foods, along with plenty of vegetables and non-processed fresh food.
Humans were never meant to eat grass seeds such as modern hybridized wheat, rice and corn.
We’re not Grazers; we’re Hunters!
Birds, sea creatures, game, fresh plants, coconuts, seeds, fruits and eggs – these are the foods our Brains, Immune Systems, and Digestive Systems need to function well. In this professionally filmed, 70 minute DVD, I explain why modern grains and starchy carbohydrates damage our intestines and cause obesity, Diabetes, Celiac Disease, Irritable Bowel, and auto-immune disorders.
Big Idea #1: Eat Like A Human Being
We are not vegetarians. When we begin to eat, our stomachs release hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid’s purpose is to digest animal protein and kill bacteria in the food. Our entire physiology is built around eating animals. Grazing animals such as deer digest differently and are suited for grass, weeds and fibrous plants.
Big Idea #2: Fats Are Good
Humans evolved with a preference for saturated fat as fuel. It’s the most satisfying of all foods. As hunter gatherers, our bodies would store fat for energy until the next successful hunt. But we have a backup system where we MAKE fat out of any extra glucose or starch. Carbohydrate-heavy diets with bread, pasta, soda, fries, etc. make more fat than we need and we often store it around our waistlines This type of fat is dangerous to us. We make large amounts of cholesterol which is used to make hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, progesterone.
Big Idea #3: We Hate Sugar!
Foods that are high calorie and low in nutrient dense proteins and fats trigger a damaging glucose-insulin cycle. Insulin cycling causes inflammation which many doctors say is the cause of most modern illness. Fruits, vegetables, honey and sugar are unreliable food sources and are too low in calories for us to rely on them as the major food source during evolution. We ate plants and proteins.
Big Idea #4: Reboot the System
Since the Agricultural Revolution, we have added huge amounts of grains, sugar, sodas and bread to our diet. This shift causes our bodies to burn starch (glucose) for fuel rather than the natural process of burning fat for fuel. For better health, reboot your body from the glucose burning system to the fat burning default system. The body WANTS to do this.
Big Idea #5: Insulin Is Scary!
Insulin is a master hormone regulating all hormones in the body. Any hormonal problem can be due to an imbalance in the insulin-glucose cycle. Insulin carries nutrients and escorts them into the cells so we need SOME insulin. But if we eat excess sugars or starches we make excess insulin. We become insulin-resistant and store glucose as fat. This fat accumulates on the organs in the mid-body, becoming one of the main predictors of death from all causes. We call it Metabolic Syndrome and it is fully reversible.
Big Idea #6: The Trouble With Grains
Grains are the seeds of grass. Wheat, rye, oats, corn and rice are grass seeds. Seeds are not very digestible to humans but are to animals who evolved to graze on them. Seeds are coated with toxic anti-nutrients that protect the seed from being digested if eaten. Of all the grains, rice is the least damaging to the lining of the intestines. Gluten, such as wheat, rye, barley, and oats, is damaging and is strongly implicated in Leaky Gut Syndrome and autoimmunity. The Agricultural Revolution of the 1960’s hybridized grain, making it cheaper to grow and use. The hybridization of grain affected all grain, including organic, and made modern grains inflammatory.
Big Idea #7: Beans and Potatoes Too?
Beans are seeds too! Legumes are very high in lectins. Long soaking and partial sprouting can help detoxify phytic acid. Beans are high in carbs and difficult to digest. Soybean particularly should be avoided as soy is a hormone modulator – it takes over your hormones! The only acceptable soy is gluten-free fermented Tamari. Potatoes are a high starch/high carb food and are a member of the Nightshade family of foods, linked to inflammation and other health concerns.
Big Idea #8: Give Me Some Good Carbs!
Vegetables provide our best source of carbohydrate. The recommended amount to eat is 8 cups a day. The carbs in nuts and seeds are okay in moderation. The same goes for fruit. Eat some, but not too much. Both vegetables and fruit provide all the carbohydrates we need.
Big Idea #9: Fat Is Not The Problem!
Our bodies need the rich fats found in animal fat and organs, coconuts, and coconut oil. The best source of animal fat comes from healthy pastured-grazed animals, not feedlot animals. For cooking, use ghee (clarified butter), non-hydrogenated lard, tallow, bacon fat or coconut oil. If you can tolerate dairy, use butter. Canned coconut milk is a staple in The Diet For Human Beings. Do not use vegetable oils or highly processed hydrogenated oils, such as canola, corn, soy or peanut. Olive Oil, Macadamia Oil or Avocado oil are okay.
Big Idea #10: What About Dairy?
Dairy affects all of us differently. I suggest stopping all dairy but ghee and discover for yourself how you react to dairy added back later. MANY health symptoms can clear quickly by stopping milk and ice cream. Motivate yourself to do the full diet! Try The Diet for Human Beings 30 DAYS to see the greatest results!
Big Idea #11: So What Do I Eat?
On The Diet for Human Beings, you eat nutrient dense food from three main food groups: proteins, fats, and healthy carbohydrates. Every meal is a balanced meal with all three food groups represented and plenty of non-starchy veggies. Adding herbs, spices and condiments add variety and taste. Get 30 to 50% of your calories from the allowed fats. Get rid of white table salt and replace with Himalayan Salt, a tasty and important mineral source. For beverages? Pure spring water or reverse-osmosis filtered water or some herbal tea is the best choice.
Is the Paleo Diet gluten free?
Yes, when we stop eating grains and choose more vegetables, protein and fat, we’re automatically stopping wheat and the other gluten grains. There’s more to Gluten Free than not eating wheat flour. Over time you’ll want to look at labels of body-care products, make-up, and packaged foods of all kinds to look for wheat or gluten.
