Food labels are mostly nonsense, what matters is what you actually absorb.

After a chemical analysis and on paper, most vegetables, nuts, seeds and fruits look like they contain some vitamins, minerals and even protein. Unfortunately for us, we do not have the complex digestion and fermentation chambers of herbivores. While vitamins and minerals are in chemical form, which cannot be absorbed by humans and need to be converted, other problems also arise, such as antinutrients, fiber, and poisonous plant defense chemicals. The bioavailability and bioconversion …

Cholesterol is Essential to Life

All our cells are made from cholesterol. All our hormones are made from cholesterol. You need cholesterol to produce vitamin D3. Your brain needs lots of cholesterol or it will shrink and give you memory problems, Alzheimer’s, and make you mentally ill. The more cholesterol you have, the longer you are going to live! Those with low cholesterol are weaker, unhealthy, get heart diseases, have mental problems and die more often when cardiovascular issues …

10 Diet/Nutrition Myths That Must Die In 2020

Plants cannot run away from predators. Therefore, they have developed several sinister defense mechanisms to prevent them from being eaten. These include toxins that are highly poisonous in larger quantities, antinutrients that block nutrients from being absorbed and can cause cellular damage, and phytoestrogens that will make the predator infertile. As for vitamins and minerals, none of these are in bioavailable form and must be converted in our bodies. The bioconversion rate is between …

More on Skin Care and the Misinformation About Vitamin C

Vitamin C has mainly three effects on the body. It up-regulates different collagen genes, it’s an antioxidant, and it competes with glucose at the glut-4 receptor. However, vitamin D3, vitamin A (animal: retinol), and vitamin K2 (animal: MK4) also up-regulates these collagen genes and many more, rendering vitamin C unnecessary for collagen production (skin, hair, nails, joints, etc.). So, you can only get scurvy if you lack these fat-soluble vitamins. If you get these …

Do you get hungry; do you get cravings?

Unless you have a severe metabolic disorder, hunger or cravings are not due to lack of ‘calories’ or a low meal frequency (and thus low blood sugar, lol). Hunger, thoughts about food, and cravings are simply a sign that you have a nutrient deficiency. To put it bluntly, your diet and/or food choices suck. If you consume nutrition-dense foods with a high bioavailability, such as meat, egg yolks, fish roe and organ meats; you …

Mental Illness is Usually From Poor Nutrition (Vegan/Plant-Based)

Do you experience anxiety, depression, nervousness, brain fog, mood swings, or social phobias on a regular basis without any real trauma or explanation behind it? Do you easily get pulled into different kinds of convictions? Do you rather follow the herd than ask questions, speak up, and think for yourself? If you do, your diet and/or food choices may most probably be the culprit. Mental illness disorders like those listed above and many others …

September 6, 2019. Recovery Update!

Time for a long overdue update. For the last couple of months, I’ve been pushing at my limits a little bit. Doing some online coaching and helping a selected few, studying and digging deeper into various nutrition and health related topics, as well as some writing (Body Transformation Guide II). My nutrition is strictly animal based and I’ve done two shorter fasts this year (4 days and 6 days, both with a few days …

Fiber is NOT needed

Fiber is NOT needed in the human diet

A common standpoint among conventional health practitioners is that fiber is good for you. Not only good but necessary. This is of course complete nonsense. There is no evidence in any literature that humans need fiber or that it is necessary for good health. In fact, fiber has been linked to constipation, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and colon cancer. Also, if fiber clogs you up and delay digestion, you can …

Carbohydrates are NOT our body’s preferred fuel

Anyone who at least has glanced at nutritional science should know that carbohydrates are non-essential. Carbohydrates are nothing more than an alternative emergency energy source. As humans, we are designed to function at peak efficiency without them. We are carnivores and we thrive on animal fats. Unfortunately, the misconception that carbohydrates are our ‘preferred’ fuel has been so ingrained in most of us, that we believe it to be a universal truth – even …

The Glycemic Index is absolute rubbish

I was introduced to the Glycemic Index (GI) back in late 1996 as it began to gain popularity in the bodybuilding and fitness community. I even wrote an overview of the current research and possible applications for our Ironmag Online magazine. At that time, we thought we had found the holy grail of carbohydrate and insulin management. How wrong we were. Not only is the glycemic index pseudo-science, carbohydrates in any form are bad …
