My grandmother often said, “You are what you eat.”
Here is the science to back this up, a video by
Dr. Michael Mosley. A Junk food addict!
“I changed my diet 18 years ago.
I love to eat,
just not meat!
I was getting that ‘chunky’ middle age body,
so I fasted! And the FAT never returned.
Also…I have not seen a doctor for ANY illness since!”
I hope that you watch this video,
it just recommends a baby step, no radical diet,
but watching this could help you live a healthy life.
Reaching the ripe old age of 50, Dr. Mosley wondered how healthy
he really was. He found that he was only slightly overweight,
pre-Cancerous (6 types of cancer),
What did cavemen really eat when they sat down to dine, morning, noon and night?
The Paleo Diet guys spun some interesting theories —
all of which turned out to be nonsense.
But the truth is, if you’re trying to isolate the “health key” to early man’s diet,
it really may hinge not so much on what he was eating.
Because one BIG health benefit early man had going:
he rarely got three squares a day.
In fact, it might have regularly been a day or two
(or four) between filling meals back in the bad old days.
So if you get a hankering to emulate cavemen, the key is probably this:
eat a fair amount less than you’re eating now.
This is the basic tenant arrived at when a leading British journalist and physican,
Michael Mosley, set out to become healthier and lose weight,
while making as few changes as possible in his life.
Dr. Mosley is considered the “Sanjay Gupta of England,”
and today we are recommending a video he recently produced on this subject.
