Paleo/Barbarian/Primal lifestyle Me in my 32' Jeans at 58 years
I have had great results from the Barbarian/Paleo diet/ lifestyle! As have those around me: BUT, I am concerned about the USDA recent food pyramid, that recommends (drum roll!) that 60% of your diet be CARBOHYDRATES!!
This is sick, sad, and just a way to sell out to organized agricultural food product manufacturers...
There, I've said it.
If a caveman dropped by your "pad", and saw your Pizza, doritos, and maybe a twinkie for dessert...
HE WOULD NOT recognize any of the above as even being FOOD!
The bottom line?
Seafood (sardines are ideal!)
vegetables (whipped up in the vitamix along with your
Fruits! is ideal!
Grains, especially wheat, rye and barley are VERBOTEN!!
Anti nutrients galore- leading to a cascade of hormones that violate your gut, and invade your bloodstream... NO ONE needs this!!
Who wants the options of PROSTATE CANCER, arthritis, BALDNESS, heart disease, and the endless litany of all the diseases that Syndrome X, the diseases of modern civilization/diet have to offer??
Barbarians of yore ate vegetables, meat, fruit, full-fat, raw dairy as milk and cheese....
Do you likewise!!
Leave the bread, even the BLACK bread, on the table!
(But be sure to put the butter, grass fed cow butter, on your vegetables!!)
