The Most Perfect Diet in the World
Search Google for "THE BEST, HEALTHIEST DIET IN THE WORLD". You’ll probably get a ton of information, most of it conflicting, and you probably won’t learn much or be able to draw any real, useful conclusions.
Between fad diets, outdated information, and common body and health myths, it’s no wonder we have so much trouble figuring out what to eat!
How do we define “best”?
If you want to get the real answer, you have to start by clarifying the question. “What is the best diet?” seems simple enough, but given the range of answers, it's clear people aren’t interpreting it the same way.
Does best mean a diet that helps you lose weight? Many people seem to think so. Does best mean a diet that makes your life easier? Lessens your grocery bill? Eliminates grains?
So, defining “best” is definitely a worthwhile starting point. Here’s how I define best: the best diet is the one that satisfies your nutritional requirements while also maximizing your body’s functions and preventing diseases and future degeneration. The best diet is the diet that maximizes and optimizes health in terms of food alone.
I also consider a superior diet to be one that is as natural as possible. That means no hormones, antibiotics, GMO food, factory-farm raised animals, and no supplements.
The only reason to take a supplement- be it a trace mineral supplement or a natural vitamin complex- is that you aren’t getting that compound from your regular diet. Although supplements can be beneficial when used properly, it’s better to avoid needing them by optimizing your regular diet.
We do know what the human body needs to be healthy. We know that the human body needs 4 700 mg of potassium per day for optimal health.
We know we need trace minerals like iodine and selenium. We know we need a lot of things, and that there are still more things that we don’t need for basic functions, but that will inhibit diseases like cancer or macular degeneration.
But the body’s needs are a lot to keep track of without a tool. Luckily, I have a solution.
Track your intake and deficiencies.
In an effort to make this information accessible to all people, I developed a free, simple tool that allows you to get a full report of your dietary deficiencies based on what you eat in a given day.
Enter what you ate yesterday, for example, and you’ll see an instant report on what was missing from your diet. Enter your food intake regularly, and soon you’ll pick up on the patterns of what you’re generally missing.
The tool can help you learn to eat better on a regular basis, and will also give you the cold, hard facts on what you’re lacking. No fad diets, no opinions, just pure, science-backed numbers.
The tool, which accounts for age and sex, will measure four basic areas of food intake: minerals, vitamins, fatty acids, and amino acids.
You can see your top deficiencies at a glance, or get a detailed report of what you’re getting and what you’re lacking in each category. You will also get recommended food sources for the vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and amino acids you still need in your diet.
This program allows you to see your nutrients from your foods.
With numbers like that, you can adjust your own diet to avoid deficiencies so that you never have to be in a position where supplements are needed.
