I Just Threw Out All My Meat, Dairy, Oil and Processed Grains

This lecture series covers topics ranging from Bovine Leukemia Virus to the incident death rate of Norwegians during Nazi occupation.  The data presented was enough to convince me that humans should not be eating any kind of meat, dairy, oil or processed grains.  Virtually all metabolic disease can be reversed by a change in diet. Diabetes, heart disease, atherosclerosis, obesity, depression, etc.. etc.. etc.. can be stopped in their tracks or cured by a change in diet.

If not for you, you owe it to your kids to watch this lecture series.  Did you know that studies have been published that show chronic ear infections and tonsillitis can often times be cured by simply taking the kids off cow’s milk?  Many parents may needlessly subject their children to surgery because of the diet they are feeding their children.

If you have a Netflix subscription, I highly recommend taking the time to watch the documentary Forks Over Knives in conjunction with this lecture series.  There is no reason to starve yourself when it comes to losing weight and correcting disease.  When you eat food that is fit for human consumption, you can drop pounds and cure disease without ever going hungry a day in your life.

If you’re confused by competing diets, Dr. McDougal covers the Paleo, Gluten Free and non-GMO diets in the lecture below.  He also goes into great detail on the Atkin’s diet and the subject of ketosis in video 8 of the series above.

Dr. Michael Gregor talks about the latest research in heart disease, diabetes and cancer, showing that plant based diets are the most effective means of preventing and treating these diseases:

  • So he’s pushing the opposite of the Low-Carb High-Fat diet? Or am I missunderstanding?

    • That’s right. Any kind of high fat diet is going to require severe calorie restriction because of the calorie density of the food being consumed. Such severe restriction is simply impossible to maintain. On a high carb, low fat, high fiber whole food diet, it’s pretty much impossible to over-eat. Here’s what the low-carb high-fat diet will do to you:

      • Well… Not that impressed to be honest. Of course the weight loss doesn’t stick if you stop eating like you should and return to old habits. That applies to McDougall’s diet as well, does it not? Now that I watched your video, how about if I send a link your way?

        This guy also has a (slightly longer) video over here:

        • It’s simply impossible for you to have watched my videos. It’s 9 hours of information. I posted it less than 9 hours ago.

          Further, do you believe humans need to walk around in a state of constant hunger to be healthy?

          A whole food diet entails no calorie restriction at all. I think that’s a big red flashing neon sign that something is wrong with a high fat diet.

          I’ve been on a whole food diet for a few weeks now and my weight is dropping. I drink 3 fruit smoothies a day and stuff myself with rice and beans on a regular basis. I’m never hungry.

          • I was referring to the video you posted in your last comment.

            And that’s the point of LCHF. You don’t count calories. You eat until you’re full. And you get full a LOT quicker because of all that fat. If you add carbs to that fat you can eat more. But cut down on the carbs and you’ll be full so much quicker. And you’ll stay full. I’ve had friends say that didn’t know what it was like to be full until they tried LCHF. Anecdotal evidence, yeah I know.

            I’m glad you’re losing weight! I think the worst thing one can do is mix carbs and fat. So low-fat diets probably work just as good as low-carb diets at losing weight. Evidently a high-carb high-fat diet is a bad idea at least. Which part to eliminate is probably best left to the individual. For me it’s easier to eliminate carbs. And I love the even blood-sugar level! If dinner is 2 hours late, no biggie. That’s not how it used to work 🙂

          • Pure fat is 4000 calories per pound. A tbsp of oil, any oil, is 100 calories.

            So you can eat either a tbsp of oil or 1 whole apple and consume 100 calories. Which is going to fill you up more?

            It’s impossible to eat as much fat as you want and not get fat simply due to the calorie density of the foods involved.

          • Well, you don’t sit down and eat a slab of butter for dinner. You eat a steak, a fat sauce and lots of vegetables.

            But I don’t feel the need to convince you. I just wanted to point to some stuff that point in the opposite direction. I don’t think the method you’ve chosen doesn’t work. Just keep an open mind, the fact that one thing works doesn’t mean that some other thing doesn’t work.

            Have a nice day!

    Thanks for posting this.

  • What I find interesting is that both diet approaches (this and LCHF) emphasize elimination of dairy, grain oils (most “vegetable” oils sold are grain based or heavily processed) and refined/processed grains. Aside from that, man has lived all over the world and thrived on diets high in carbs and low in carbs. From the Inuit who subsisted on a high fat, low carb, moderate protein diet to tropical diets that may be higher in carbs from fruits but also low in certain fats and again containing moderate amounts of protein. The human body can adapt to a wide variety of diets but doesn’t know how to handle processed fats and excessive amounts of refined sugars. If you have successfully cut out dairy, oils and refined grains while emphasizing more whole foods including vegetables and fruits, congratulations. Just remember, there is no one size fits all diet.

    • There is a one size fits all diet. It’s called a whole foods plant based diet. There are no exceptions. All humans exhibit inflamation after consuming saturated fat and cholesterol. All humans exhibit increases in serum cholesterol from any given baseline if their intake of saturated fat and cholesterol are increased from any given baseline. All animal products are bad for your health. There are no exceptions.
