Keep it Simple and Eat Smarter, Not Less

Many nutrition professionals seem to think you need years of college just to figure out how to eat healthy.

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Even though nutrition can be complicated (with all the biochemistry and nutrients and whatnot), eating healthy is NOT.

In the video above, you will find everything you need to know about healthy eating.

Being Healthy Does Not Require Math or a Calculator

Apple And Calculator

The healthiest humans today (and in the past) are those who don’t even know what a calorie is.

They don’t own calculators and they never learned math in school. They don’t have nutritionists, diets or even modern medicine.

Yes… “primitive” folks like modern hunter gatherers manage to stay thin, healthy and avoid most western diseases without all the complicated (and ineffective) solutions we have today (1, 2).

The thing is, we don’t need any complicated solutions to stay healthy. All we need is to eat natural, unprocessed foods and do some exercise on a regular basis.

How to Create a Hormonal Environment That Encourages Weight Loss

In order to lose fat off our bodies, we need to create a hormonal environment that encourages fat burning and makes us eat less food automatically.

This is easily achieved by lowering carbs in the diet, which reduces insulin levels in the blood, which will make our bodies stop hoarding energy in the fat cells (3, 4).

Avoiding sugar specifically (except for the occasional fruit) will also improve our sensitivity to the hormone leptin, which will make our brains want to eat less and burn more (5, 6).

Lose Weight Without Counting a Single Calorie

Doing this is simple:

  • Eat these healthy foods: meat, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, healthy fats, non-starchy vegetables and the occasional fruit.
  • Avoid these unhealthy foods: sugar, grains, vegetable oils, trans fats, artificial sweeteners and other processed products.

Eat real, single ingredient foods. If it needs an ingredients list, then it isn’t real food.

This is how you create a hormonal environment that encourages weight loss without having to count calories and control portions.

  1. I am not struggling with my weight, just got an email to this link. I eat the majority of these “healthy natural” foods but I also eat bread and cereals, I also opt for the fresh baked breads with no added additives and chemicals and often make my own.

    Our ancestors did have access to breads and cereals, so shouldn’t we consume them as long as we choose those products that are fresh and less processed with all the nasty additives and chemicals?

    • Well, depends on what you call ancestors. If you look past the agricultural revolution then we didn’t have breads or cereals.

      If you don’t need to lose weight and you feel good eating the way you do, then I don’t see a problem.

  2. I forgot to add, I know that Gluten wasn’t a natural product of wheat it was only when wheat was mass produced to make a larger quantity at a faster rate to feed the growing population did gluten develop, and that’s why you should steer clear of it but eating brown rice or wholemeal products that have been less processed as long as it is not in abundance shouldn’t that be okay?

    I’m not an adult just yet and I do a lot of physically demanding activities and I find that no amount of fruit and vegetables and nuts on their own will keep me satisfied for long. I also can’t eat meat, besides for salmon and tuna.
    I know I can’t meet my energy requirements without carbohydrates, I’ve tried on numerous occasions and I basically eat 24/7 and I find that I am always hungry for more unless I consume vegetables with brown rice or something similar.

  3. I have been on the low carb (Dukan diet) since October and recently have been craving fats like peanut butter or avocado. Are these considered your good fats?

  4. What do you mean by the “occasional” fruit? Isn’t the recommended 2 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit a day? Please advise, thanks.

  5. Oh, great! I love my fruit and if I were to give it up, I might end up craving… chocolate haha. One more question, there are advocates of having fruit before meals, but I much prefer after meals, as desert. Is this fine? Thank you.
