What you will not encounter here is upselling. We will never try to convince you that the only thing standing between you and success is more money. Remember that if you choose to go somewhere else. We wish you luck either way. 



 

The Problem with All Those Diets

Has it ever occurred to you how strange it is that low fat diets and low carb diets all work?

If fat is the problem then the low carb diet shouldn't work and if carbs are the problem then the low fat diet shouldn't work. So how can both types work?

While we are on the subject. Why are there so many diets? Every diet you have ever heard of works. If a diet doesn't work for the majority of people you will never hear about it. But if you hear about it, it works.

It gets even more confusing when you realize that every one of those diets is based on a different theory of nutrition. How could they possibly all be right?

Here's the simple explanation - they don't work for the reasons that they claim to work. The truth of the matter is that there is not a single theory in the field of nutrition that can predict outcomes for individuals. Yes all those diets may work for enough people that you have heard of them but that DOES NOT mean they will work for you!

Take some comfort in the fact that you will never understand nutrition. It is far, far too complicated for our feeble brains to fully comprehend. Fortunately, your understanding is not required at all. We are the only species that even has a concept of nutrtition and also the only species that consistently gets it wrong!

A lack of information has never been your problem. If anything, you have too much useless information in your head. Nutrition may be complicated but getting properly nourished is not complicated at all! It's about biology, not willpower. Give us a chance to get your head straight. You won't be disappointed.

Here is some of what you'll find:

Every day there are news reports of new health advice, but how can you know if they're right? Doctor and epidemiologist Ben Goldacre shows us, at high speed, the ways evidence can be distorted, from the blindingly obvious nutrition claims to the very subtle tricks of the pharmaceutical industry.

Food companies are not out to get you. The hard truth is that they don't care about you at all. You are just a source of revenue. The best way for them to separate you from your money is to create ever more appetizing food. Click here for the link to an article that explains what has happened in the food industry over the past few decades.

Salt is SO bad for you. Or is it? Would it surprise you to know that there has actually never been a definitive link between sodium intake and hypertension?  In fact, there is some indication that a low-sodium diet is more dangerous. Click here for the link to the article.

If you are like most, you do not want to see the disturbing particulars of how your food is produced. Well, big food companies have taken appalling liberties with that type of willful ignorance. Why don't you let 11-year-old Birke Baehr talk some sense to you about industrial farming. Click here to watch the video.
