Humans evolved as apex predators. For millions of years humans hunted and killed big game animals as our main source of food. As a result of the high fat content in animal foods, the human brain grew very large and very intelligent.
Animal and Sea foods contain all the essential fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals to maintain maximum health and energy.
When an animal follows it’s natural diet they will be free from disease and degeneration.
Modern foods cause modern diseases. Most health problems people face are not caused by ‘genetics’. They are not ‘ bad luck’. It is the food that you put in your body that will determine how healthy you are.
I highly recommend reading these 2 books if you are interested in developing great health and understanding the reality of nutrition:
Nutrition And Physical Degeneration by Dr Weston A Price
This is one of the most important books ever written regarding the field of health and nutrition. Dr Price’s book opened my eyes up to the reality of what humans are supposed to eat and what foods are causing modern disease.
Weston A Price was a dentist who travelled and spent time with many indigenous tribes from around the world. He observed their health, their strength and most importantly their dental state. Those tribes who subsisted on their traditional diets had great health and vitality, as well as perfect teeth free from cavities. However, those who had access to the white mad foods such as flour, sugar and vegetable oils had an abundance of cavities and a degeneration of their health.
He recognized the great importance of animal food and saturated fat in the diet for optimal health. The healthiest and strongest primitive groups ate lots of meat, seafood, raw dairy products and cod liver oil.
This book will give you an understanding of what foods produce health in contrast to the foods that cause degeneration.
The Fat Of The Land by Vilhjalmur Stefansson
Stefansson was a famous Arctic explorer who lived with the Eskimos for extended periods of time. During his expeditions, he and his men subsisted on an ALL MEAT DIET. As a result, he recognized greater energy, vitality and a more positive outlook as a result of his carnivorous eating routine.
In the book, he discusses anthropology and how humans evolved as hunters, thriving on a diet of only animal foods. It is only within the last 10,000 years or so that man began eating cereal grains and vegetables. We have not yet properly adapted to this agricultural diet.
The diet of a hunter is far superior for health, strength, bone density and teeth in comparison to the modern agriculture based diet.
This book is a must-read for anyone who has an interest in the natural human diet. It provides solid evidence that man can thrive on an all meat diet.
