A recorded Q&A session on nutritional ketosis – how a high-fat eating style encourages reduced body stress, healing, and boundless health. Weight loss, too!
Last week, a bunch of Healthful Pursuit readers and I got together (digitally) to chat about nutritional ketosis in celebration of my newest digital program, The Keto Beginning – a guide and 30-day meal plan on using healthy fats as our primary fuel.
Eating fats shouldn’t scare us anymore. Research has proven that using fat as our primary fuel is the way to go, long term. When cows are pending slaughter (we’re talking conventional processes here), they’re fed grains, to fatten them up. So why do we have it in our heads that this same grain-rich diet, promoted by government organizations, dieticians, nutritionists and health enthusiasts everywhere, promotes health in us?
Did you know? The carbohydrate-rich diet that we adopted in the mid-1980’s at the turn of the “food pyramid” has never been tested? It’s never been proven to work. Even says so IN the actual food guide. The USDA makes this statement in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines document: “The [USDA] food patterns were developed to meet nutrient needs . . . while not exceeding calorie requirements. Though they have not been specifically tested for health benefits they are similar to the DASH research diet and consistent with most of the measures of adherence to Mediterranean-type eating patterns (emphasis added).”
Um, what? So… we’re basically following a carbohydrate-rich, low-fat eating style… with NO scientific evidence that it actually benefits us.
I have become enthralled by the power of high-fat living and, I’m happy to report that; with the help of The Keto Beginning, thousands of you have, too.
