Simply Health ME E56 Healthy Diets Gone Wrong

You can do any “healthy” diet poorly

Nutrition is not religion

  • A “poor healthy” diet will work for a while
  • Because it is probably better then SAD
  • At some point, you will hit a plateau in your goals (weight loss/health)
  • All diets CAN be healthy or unhealthy
  • Nutrition is not Religion
  • A reminder that genetics may determine which diet works for us

Ways that any diet can be unhealthy

  1. Vegetable Oils
  • In all processed food
  • Soybean, canola (organic doesn’t make it healthy)
  • Paleo, vegan, keto baked goods, cookies, crackers etc.
  • “Fake” vegan cheese
  1. Added Sugar
  • See above
  • Honey in moderation may be okay but tons of added sweetener
  • Artificial sweeteners in “low carb”sweets
  1. Foods that you have an intolerance for
  • Grains, dairy
  • “One man’s food is another man’s poison” – Titus Lucretius Carus aka: Lucretius
  1. Processed Food
  • See above (veggie oils, processed carbs, sugar)
  • Meat can be processed too
  1. Weird Ingredients
  • E.g the ice cream we got last night
  • If you don’t know what it is, you probably shouldn’t eat it
  1. Nutrient Deficiencies
  • B vitamins NEED to be supplemented
  • Vitamin C possibly in Carnivore

Just because it says “organic”, “paleo”, “low carb”, “vegan”, does not mean its healthy

If it has a label on it, its not real food.

No human population ever ate only plants or only meat, we are omnivores
