9 Steps To Perfect Health – #1: Don’t Eat Toxins. Imagine a world where: diabetes, heart diseases, autoimmunity and other modern diseases are rare or don’t exist at allwe are naturally lean and fitwe are fertile throughout our childbearing yearswe sleep peacefully and deeplywe age gracefully without degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and osteoporosis While this might sound like pure fantasy today, anthropological evidence suggests that this is exactly how human beings lived for the vast majority of our evolutionary history.

9 Steps To Perfect Health – #1: Don’t Eat Toxins

Today, most people accept diseases like obesity, diabetes, infertility and Alzheimer’s as “normal”. But while these diseases may now be common, they’re anything but normal. Humans evolved roughly 2.5 million years ago, and for roughly 84,000 generations we were naturally free of the modern diseases which kill millions of people each year and make countless others miserable. What was responsible for the change? In a word? What is a toxin? It implies that the first bit eaten of any toxin has low toxicity. Archevore Blog - Archevore Diet Revised.

Archevore Blog - Archevore Diet Revised

Not really. But I did just spend several hours doing a needed update. I think this is about version 3.0 since the original back-of-the-envelope diet I first put on the web in June 2009. That was a diet I had been using successfully clinically for more than two years. The emphasis on animal products remains. The emphasis on real whole foods - kill it or dig it up with a stick - remains and is enhanced. Archevore Blog - No Such thing as a macronutrient part II - Carbohydrates (revised)

Note: I've added significantly to this part of the 3 part essay, so to make sure you see it all, I've re-posted.

Now we can have some fun, as I think I can demonstrate to you that this is by far the least metabolically useful macronutrient category. GLUCOSE and STARCH Here is plain old glucose: I like these stereo models – black is carbon, red is oxygen and white is hydrogen. First is the unstable open form and next is the six carbon ring. Much of the confusion in the nutrition wars is engendered by the dual roles that molecules have – as both food components and as internal fuel molecules.

Both views ignore basic facts of medical physiology and defy evolutionary history. Hypergylcemia is bad, but hyperglycemia is caused by pathologic loss of glucoregulatory control, not simply by eating a food that has glucose in it. Both of these ideas confuse the effects of molecules as internal metabolites with their suitability as food. I refuse to believe our bodies could be that stupid. Legumes Fruits.

Cut to the chase by visiting Thanks for visiting! Military Performance Division: Creatine for Type-2 Diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is (adult-onset diabetes) is a metabolic disorder characterized by high blood glucose in the context of insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency. Along with diet and medication, physical activity has been considered the primary prevention strategy for managing type 2 diabetes [1].

Strategies capable of mimicking and/or enhancing the effects of exercise are potentially therapeutic, hence the emergence of creatine supplementation as a novel alleged candidate for treating diabetes [2]. Creatine has rapidly become one of the most consumed nutritional supplements due to its ability to enhance muscle phosphorylcreatine content, thus enhancing athletic performance and lean mass. The research supports the role of creatine supplementation in improving acute work capacity during intermittent short-duration high-intensity exercise. The efficacy of this supplement on skeletal muscle protein synthesis is less clear [3,4]. Dr. To read more from Dr Henning click here.
