All the talk about diets, especially the dread of going on a “diet,” is misunderstood and miscommunicated. We are all on some sort of diet — a diet simply means a particular kind of food intake.
I used to think I was on a great diet, but I was wrong and ill-informed to miss all the warning signs. To be fair to me, I consulted the doctors, but they didn’t help — I learned they weren’t aware of nor educated about the underlying culprit that 95% of the world’s population suffers from.
POOR FOOD INTAKE.
The question is, how good or bad is your diet? The answer, folks, is found by looking at yourself in the mirror and what’s behind it in the medicine cabinet!
How do you look and feel?
Are you in good shape? Or, are you bloated in your face and belly, looking older than your age, and carrying an excess 50lbs or more?
How many meds are you on, and for what conditions? Acid reflux is a big red flag that your gut isn’t happy with all the glucose going in it!
Poor sleep, stress, headaches, and so on are further signs of your health declining, caused mainly by years of consuming sugar, carbohydrates, and processed foods.
The good news is — it’s never too late to change and take complete control of your health and weight management.
My typical day’s food will look like this.
I eat only 2 meals a day and have been doing so for over 6 years. Once you transition into a fat burner and become keto, it’s easy to get by on 2 meals and practice Intermittent Fasting.
My brunch or lunch around 1 pm is almost always the same, with a few variations for flavor and nutritional intake.
I’m British and I love my English breakfast — it’s my go-to first meal, most days. I’ll fry up 4 rashers of bacon and organic sausages, then use the grease to fry mushrooms, tomatoes, and 3 organic eggs. I’ll sprinkle chopped chilies on top for extra vitamin C and antioxidants, and to top it off, I’ll add a small portion of baked beans.
The next day I’ll do the same, but instead of bacon and sausage, I’ll make a juicy 150g burger, topped with melted cheese and 2 eggs!
I’ll make a large salad with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, boiled eggs, and chilies topped with a juicy burger or grilled marinated chicken slices, with parmesan cheese, smothered in olive oil.
My other favorite is beef or chicken stroganoff made with heavy cream and mushrooms — of course; I spice that up with chilis, again, for the extra vitamin C and antioxidant intake.
I make a few more dishes with the same ingredients, occasionally I’ll treat myself to a steak dinner, and that’s pretty much it!
I like to keep things simple and quick to make. Every meal is delicious, and I never get bored with my food. I cook myself 80% of the time, as I know what I’m making is top quality and mostly organic, and well, it tastes better than most restaurant food too!
Plus, most restaurants cook using PUFA oils which are one of the most significant health risks out there! I try to avoid PUFAs as much as possible — home cooking is the best way to go for that reason alone!
Summing it up.
If you’re not feeling or looking good and you know it, it’s probably a good idea to change your food intake. I’ve been on the keto diet since 2016, I can say with all sincerity and honesty that it saved my life.
I suffered from terrible acid reflux in the early 2000s; I had a major operation, which didn’t help or cure me! It all got worse and I was stuck on proton pump inhibitors until I finally had a stroke in 2015.
Strokes can be related to that medication, but I can’t say if it was that or something else. What I can say is that I looked and felt terrible, I was 50lbs overweight, and my medicine cabinet was rammed full of meds!
My poor food intake and the meds and stress in combination likely caused the stroke.
I studied food and soon found the keto diet, about which I then fully educated myself. By 2017 I had recovered 100%, lost all my excess weight, and haven’t taken any meds since, nor have I been sick again.
Food and the proper diet are your medicine, guys, or your poison. The choice is yours.
