The Optimal Human Diet:
Folks: I have been studying and examining diet since the 1980s. I have personally experimented with numerous approaches to diet. I have personally a been a "vegan", a "vegetarian", etc. I have recommended various dietary approaches over the years including the "USDA", "Macrobiotics", "The Zone", "Atkins", "Mediterranean", "Nourishing Traditions" and more. After years of studying nutrition and reading hundreds of scientific articles and many dozens of books re. diet/nutrition, I finally became absolutely convinced of 2 things: #1 Poor diet is probabaly the number one cause of chronic illness and premature death in the USA and #2: The federal government's (USDA) recomended healthy diet is substantially flawed. I believe there is "one best diet" for nearly all human beings! Its technical name is the "modified paleolithic diet" and it is known popularly as 'The Paleo Diet' (other names: Paleo/ Primal/ Innate/ Ancestral Diet, etc). The links below link to resources regarding the way of eating. This diet, with slight variations, is the OPTIMAL diet for NEARLY EVERYONE: Men, women, children, old, young, athletes (both strength and endurance), etc. There is a lot to learn but, once you get the basic concepts, this way of eating is very simple. I hope that you read, learn and get inspired to change the way you eat. I also recommend a limited amount of science-based nutritional supplements for everyone, everyday. To learn more about what supplements I recommend click HERE. Come to my class to learn more!! Eat well to be well! Also, remember that I do wellness coaching, which includes nutrition consulting/coaching.

Excerpt From Lecture By Dr. Boyd Eaton, MD- This is a brief excerpt of a lecture about human genes. Remember, in general, humans do NOT get sick because of defective genes. The belief that genetic defects are a significant cause of disease is a non-scientific myth. Don't fall for it!
Another Diet Lecture Excerpt From Dr. Boyd Eaton, MD Another brief excerpt about genes and diet. The genes of humans have NOT changed significantly in the last 10,000 years! Yet almost all of the current, popular, chronic killer diseases were virtually non-existent in our ancestors! Summary: Our current bad health is NOT due to defective genes
