The Diet Protocol
What is the best diet for optimal health and longevity? The Diet Protocol is the optimal nutritional model for humans based on the science of biochemistry and numerous clinical studies.
The best diet to which all humans can have optimal health is with this distribution of the three macro nutrients:
This surprising conclusion is contrary to the common low fat diet,
promoted by the mass media and most nutritional "experts." As a matter of fact, you would do well to ignore most of the dietary advice found in the media or reported on the news networks if you want to achieve the best dietary results!
Why? Because most authors who promote their diets through the popular media are not acting in your best interests. They habitually promote their
high carbohydrate (= high glycemic) diets
have proven to be disastrous for human health.
low glycemic, higher fat diet
is the best diet plan because it results in low insulin and high glucagon levels in the blood. This allows the body to
for fuel and protects the body from harmful high sugar/high insulin blood levels which in turn promotes disease in the body.
The Basics of Optimal Nutrition
Low glycemic diets go way back in history even to
. The over-use of cultivated grains to feed the masses was the beginning of the high-sugar diet which has caused much misery in the civilized world (eg. diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer).
published one of the first low sugar diet booklets called "A Letter on Corpulence."
A popular low glycemic diet protocol from the 1950's was
"Eat Fat and Grow Slim"
by Dr. R. Mackarness.
In the 1960's, Polish doctor Jan Kwasniewski developed a low carb diet which he called the Optimal Diet. Dr. Kwasniewski used his Optimal Diet to heal very sick people over the course of many years at his health clinics. Patients who had no hope otherwise, were healed in a matter of weeks or months from diabetes I & II, heart disease, artherosclerosis, digestive disorders, multiple sclerosis, neuroses, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, obesity, ulcers, asthma, migraines, infectious disease, degenerative disease, skin diseases, and many other common ailments.
Dr. Ron Rosedale, a leading expert on the effects of insulin and leptin in the body, makes this recommendation: "I recommend 20 percent of calories from carbs, depending on the size of the person, 25 percent to 30 percent of calories from protein, and 60 percent to 65 percent from fat."
In the very simplest terms our diets should consist of more fat than protein and more protein than carbohydrates.
The Cholesterol Myth
Over the past thirty years or so, cholesterol has been blamed for the heart disease epidemic. Since animal-sourced foods are relatively high in cholesterol, there has been a public campaign to drastically reduce or even eliminate the consumption of eggs, meat and dairy products due to their high saturated fat and cholesterol content.
However, the most recent research has shown that a diet based on meat, eggs, cream, butter, cheese, etc. results in lower belly fat and the best blood profiles of HDL, LDL, and triglycerides. To discover the truth about cholesterol and heart health
Research continues to shed new light on what constitutes optimal nutrition. The studied effects of high blood sugar and high insulin levels have shed new light as to why the health of the general population continues to decline, while diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and altzheimer's continues to rise at alarming rates.
Although a low glycemic, higher fat diet is necessary to reduce insulin levels in the blood and give your body the building materials it needs for maintenance and repair, it is just as important to decrease or eliminate the foods which cause disease.
The Diet Protocol requires the consumption of natural, unprocessed foods including eggs, fish, meats, dairy, nuts, vegetables and some fruit. The best fat sources
are from animal fats, coconut oil, and olive oil. The worst fats are vegetable oils and transfats (eg. hydrogenated margarines and shortenings).
How To Follow the Diet Protocol
1. Your average daily protein intake should be 1 gram per kilogram of ideal body weight. This is calculated by taking your height in centimetres and subtracting 100. Thus a 6' tall person (183 cm) has an ideal body weight of 83 kg (+/- 10%) and therefore requires 83 grams of protein (+/- 10%).
2. Proteins should be consumed together with their natural fat (eg. whole eggs, not just the whites).
2. Intake of
should be severly restricted.
3. Carbohydrates should be mostly from low glycemic sources such as vegetables.
What to Expect from the Diet Protocol?
* More muscle mass, endurance and energy.
* Loss of body fat if overweight because the body is easily able to use fat stores for fuel.
* Perfect cholesterol levels (Higher HDL & lower LDL), lower triglycerides, ideal blood pressure.
* Better concentration, learning ability, mental clarity.
* Very high resistance to cancers and tumors. Cancer cells use sugar as fuel so on a low sugar diet they cannot grow or multiply.
* Perfect digestion without gas or bloating. Stomach ulcers clear up.
* Immune response normalizes.
* Diseases of the body and mind generally eradicated.
