Natural and whole foods produce natural and whole health potential.

“I don’t know what to eat?” 

“I feel like there’s nothing left I can eat.”

“Healthy eating is so hard.”

Eating healthy is straightforward.

Natural and whole foods produce natural and whole health potential.

Processed and fragmented foods produce unhealthy responses and fragmented health potential.

What’s hard is trying to make unhealthy foods fit into the healthy category or trying to replicate poor food choices with good ones or ones that are “less bad.”

Edible products or “foods” that do direct damage are unhealthy. Think toxins, poisons, and chemicals.

Due to how we prepare them, foods or food cause an abnormal hormonal response that is unhealthy.

Think processed foods made from powders or foods that need to be cooked for a long time to digest (starches). 

Concentrating a natural compound or nutrient to unnatural levels or isolating them to be consumed alone is unhealthy and unnatural.

Think vegetable (seed) oils, low-calorie sweeteners, food supplements, or extracts.

An intentionally healthy diet and lifestyle synergistically build on itself, compounding each element and improving normal function, efficiency, healing, and optimal health.

Making compromises in many areas of what you eat, when, and how will compound and accumulate, resulting in the breakdown of the body and disease. 

The more compromises you make, the more negative synergistic damage is done along the way.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but moderation will kill me.

You can not continue to include foods that make you sick and expect them to be healthy or for health to result. 

Some things need to be eliminated. Something can be used again once the body has healed, metabolic damage has been repaired, and a new response to stress and food has been established. But if you return to the behavior and use of these foods as you did before, you will make yourself sick again but faster.

When someone asks me, “Is red meat bad?” I have no idea, context, or reference for how to answer that. No natural food, like meat, saturated fat, eggs, fish, fruit, vegetable, etc., is bad by itself in isolation. 

Any natural food added or consumed to a sick eating and lifestyle plan (or lack thereof) can compound the adverse synergistic effects of the other compromises being tolerated. 

Is fat bad? No

Isolating one type of fat (polyunsaturated) and concentrating it (seed vegetable oils), and consuming or cooking with it is harmful and unhealthy.

That same fat in the seasonal, ripe vegetable is stable and acceptable when eaten whole or minimally cooked. The food, in its natural state, is protected. Removed and consumed alone, it is unsafe and unhealthy. Why? Because that’s far from natural.

Ok, is saturated fat bad? No.

Refining coconut oil and frying other foods (protein, carbs) in it changes it, compounds the damage, and is unhealthy. Think donuts, french fries, etc.

  • Healthy food is no longer healthy when added to an unhealthy diet with other unhealthy variables. 

  • A healthy food choice can not balance out another unhealthy one. 

  • Healthy food added to an unhealthy eating style will also become unhealthy for that person. 

  • Unhealthy food counteracts healthy food in the diet and maintains a net negative response.

Stop looking at food lists and generic “do’s and don’ts” to make your choices.

Learn how food impacts your physiology, decide if that impact is in line with being healthy and your goals, and make an informed choice.

One can not make an informed choice without information or an educated decision without educating first.

Learn the basics of what food it is, when, how to approach it, and why.

Do this, and your choices will become apparent, and you can navigate any eating or cooking environment that should arise confidently.
