There are short-term, hardcore “fit into my skinny jeans by Friday” weight loss plans, and there are more. review of Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet's Perfect health diet: four steps to renewed health, edu/~hkaplan/ olerivatcu.gq
When he discovered and treated the infection, his symptoms disappeared. It emphasizes the importance of healthy carbohydrates for nutrition, energy levels, and microbiome health. Paul warns against eating too low-carb for too long. This recommendation stirred up some controversy in the low-carb paleo community.
Check out the video: The Safe Starch Debate. Whereas paleo is a grain-free diet, PHD includes white rice in the safe starch category. It allows some dairy, more as a condiment than a major food category. Fungal, yeast and parasite overgrowths. Vitamin deficiency. White rice is an easily digested carbohydrate for the body that can also be a form of resistant starch food for the microbiome.
For people ready to start reintroducing foods on the AIP , Paul recommends cooking rice in a pressure cooker, because that's the most thorough method of removing anti-nutrients from a grain. Diagnosing and Treating Infections That Can Mimic or Complicate Autoimmune Symtpoms Paul had a fungal infection that caused skin discoloration, and a bacterial infection that caused neurological symptoms. When he went to a conventional doctor, his tests all came back normal, so he did his own research online and found a website called Cpnhelp.
Chlamydia Pneumoniae is a common chronic infection that can cause neurological symptoms and responds well to antibiotics. He talked his doctor into the correct antibiotic prescription, and his neurological symptoms vanished. Standard bloodwork can often hint at underlying infections. A functional medicine practitioner can interpret those results for you.
One example is that parasite infections will lower LDL while bacterial infections will raise it.
Infections will also affect white blood cell counts and can be an underlying cause of anemia. Written by Kris Gunnars, BSc on August 1, The paleo diet is designed to resemble what human hunter-gatherer ancestors ate thousands of years ago.
By following a whole food-based diet and leading physically active lives, hunter-gatherers presumably had much lower rates of lifestyle diseases, such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. In fact, several studies suggest that this diet can lead to significant weight loss without calorie counting and major improvements in health. This article is a basic introduction to the paleo diet, providing a simple meal plan and other essential information.
A Paleo Diet Meal Plan There is no one "right" way to eat for everyone and paleolithic humans thrived on a variety of diets, depending on what was available at the time and where in the world they lived. Some ate a low-carb diet high in animal foods, while others followed a high-carb diet with lots of plants.
Consider this as a general guideline, not something written in stone. You can adapt all of this to your own personal needs and preferences. Here are the basics: Eat: Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, healthy fats and oils.
Avoid: Processed foods, sugar, soft drinks, grains, most dairy products, legumes, artificial sweeteners, vegetable oils, margarine and trans fats. The basic concept of the paleo diet is to eat whole foods and avoid processed foods. Foods to Avoid on the Paleo Diet Avoid these foods and ingredients: Sugar and high-fructose corn syrup: Soft drinks, fruit juices, table sugar, candy, pastries, ice cream and many others.
Grains: Includes breads and pastas, wheat, spelt, rye, barley, etc. Legumes: Beans, lentils and many more. Dairy: Avoid most dairy, especially low-fat some versions of paleo do include full-fat dairy like butter and cheese.
Some vegetable oils: Soybean oil, sunflower oil, cottonseed oil, corn oil, grapeseed oil, safflower oil and others. Trans fats: Found in margarine and various processed foods.
Usually referred to as "hydrogenated" or "partially hydrogenated" oils. Artificial sweeteners: Aspartame, sucralose, cyclamates, saccharin, acesulfame potassium. Use natural sweeteners instead. Highly processed foods: Everything labeled "diet" or "low-fat" or that has many additives. Includes artificial meal replacements.
A simple guideline: If it looks like it was made in a factory, don't eat it.
If you want to avoid these ingredients, you must read ingredients lists , even on foods that are labeled as "health foods. Base your diet on whole, unprocessed paleo foods: Meat: Beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, pork and others. Fish and seafood: Salmon, trout, haddock, shrimp, shellfish, etc. Choose wild-caught if you can. Eggs: Choose free-range, pastured or omega-3 enriched eggs. Vegetables: Broccoli, kale, peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes, etc.
The biggest change will not be to the content or advice, but to the presentation. Hi Paul, When are you coming out with a cookbook. Some ideas for breakfasts in it would be good too. I love the perfect health diet, its great. I had been ready vast amounts of books on healthy diets and when I came across your book, it summed up everything I had learnt. Well done! Your B vitamin section really ought to mention the different types of B VitE… most research has been done with dl-alpha tocopherol.
The natural form is d and it is common for one isomer to have undesirable side effects eg. There are 8 natural tocopherols and tocotrienols 4 of each. The least studied are the tocotrienols… which are the most active… and thus probably the most healthful.
A few more diagrams explaining what terms were would have been useful. Everyone uses terms like ketones without ever showing their structure. Terms like denature are likewise rarely defined but often discussed. Not enough authors collect errata. This means the body can not make them.
They must be ingested. The behaviour of cold pressed fats can not be compared to heat and solvent extracted processed fats:. Cooking with any mono or polyunsaturated fat will oxidise it… and oxidised fat is the basis of arterial plaque in heart disease.
While much of this makes a lot of sense, I am trying to figure out how to reconcile the environmental costs of meat production and consumption I cannot afford to feed my whole family only organic meats and dairy products with your recommendations.
We now spend considerably less on food than we used to, mainly because we rarely eat out. Healthy food is not necessarily expensive. Eggs, milk, bones, organ meats, rice, potatoes are all inexpensive, just off the top of my head. As for the issue of saturated fat and disease risk, you might wish to read our book. Our diet is designed to minimize disease risk. In Australia most beef is grass fed whereas in the US beef is mainly grain fed.
Bernando LaPallo who is years lives in the US and gets around this problem by eating fish. He says the US meats are not healthy. Most people spend more on junk food and consumer gadgets than they do on food. The number one food item sold in supermarkets is coke. The cost of a bottle of coke is roughly the cost of upgrading to a free range chicken or free range eggs. Only a few healthy foods cost more. Most healthy foods cost less.
Every budget shows this same pattern. I believe it should be. I am going to your lecture at the nyc crossfit. Meats should be fatty enough to be moist rather than dry to the taste. So, a typical steak or egg or oily fish like salmon would be in a good range. Then, cook vegetables in a bit of oil and combine starches with a bit of fat.
For instance, butter on potatoes. Or, eat some fatty plant foods like avocado or nuts. Thanks Paul — i promise to read the rest of the book before i start asking questions… but if i could do one more. For me a typical breakfast would be 3 eggs fried in butter, plantains or potatoes with butter, and tomatoes. Spinach is a good addition. Usually I do intermittent fasting till noon, then a light breakfast, then a bigger lunch at 3 pm or so.
Finnish ed the book! I started taking notes and was able to grasp your concepts better. Its seems PHD and the Paleo Diet conflict on several areas which keeps the common folk like me thinking hmm. Do you weigh the meat before or after you cook it?
Do you recommend a specific kind of weigh protein power? How should i prepare the vegetables? Can i drink coconut oil directly? Sites like http: So if you weigh the cooked food, look up the cooked item; if you weigh the uncooked food, look up the uncooked item. Vegetables — lightly cooked in a bone broth soup is my favorite. But any standard method involving gentle cooking is good.
Coconut oil — yes, but why? A tablespoon or two a day is enough unless you are on a ketogenic diet for therapeutic purposes. You can get that by using coconut milk in your cooking. Hi Ian and Paul, The same question for starches. Hi Paul, I was surprised there was no mention of magnesium as a supplement for dealing with constipation in the blog entry of Magnesium is mentioned, in the hypothyroidism and laxative sections see http: Also, in general our posts presume that our standard recommendation to supplement certain nutrients — magnesium notably among them — hold unless otherwise mentioned.
I agree, magnesium supplementation is the first thing to try. I had the same question in mind for you. I know in the book or site? In one of your posts you mention that even diabetics can manage cal g per day without much risk of hyperglycemic toxicity. Today since you recommend a higher carb percentage do you have a different or new advice.
My first question in such a case would be: Ie a high fasting blood glucose. If so, then diet and seeing a doctor about how to manage it.
My main advice in such a case would be to go to a doctor and get tested for bowel infections.
A stool test and other tests could help identify the pathogen and indicate a treatment. There are other things that can be done to improve glycemic response. Micronutrient deficiencies, eg chromium, can cause problems in glucose regulation.
Also foods can be combined to minimize the glycemic response to rice, see http: In the years I have been reading about type 2 diabetes, somewhere along the line I read that sugar receptors and Vitamin C receptors are the same and that therefore type 2 diabetics are dramatically low in Vitamin c.
If the can possibly work then we may be able to kill two birds with one stone, so to say, by guaranteeing a good suplly of Vitamin-c to the body and reducing the sugar overload which causes Insulin spikes.
Of course to get maximum benefits chromium would have to be added to the diet to open the insulin resistant cells even further. The only side affect of overdosing on Vitamin-c would be Diarrhea. Personally I use the EsterC variety. I would greatly appreciate your comments and guidance — if you have any ideas on this line of thought.
You probably read it in our book, or in our Scurvy post. The bigger issue, however, is the issue of insulin resistance, which is generally severe in Type 2 diabetes. That means few receptors for either the glucose or insulin. Occupying the receptors with vitamin C would be like reducing the number further, making you effectively more insulin resistant. That might be a bad thing. This together with the Amino Acid Lysene 6 Grams Daily for just over a year -it acts in combination with Sodium Ascorbate, over a 2 years period, like a detergent to sweep the arteries clean of Cholestrol buildup.

Hope you find this information useful, and Professor Bush allows his information to be used in other books — so if you think that any of the information is useful I am sure you would be able to incorperate any you think helful in future editions of you book.
Glad to hear the good news. Like you I believe in vitamin C. I am not convinced it is necessary to take sodium ascorbate — you can get an excess of sodium. But, those are tremendous results. Happy New Year! My own experiance is as follows, and was varified by Professor Bush on being questioned: My Partener, who is Chinese and suffers the occasional Hypoglycimic attack a sign of pre-diabetes had to REDUCE the amount of daily Sodium Ascorbate as, due to her body mass and weight, she was getting nearly daily Hypoglycimic attacks.
There is a great deal of litrature on the Insulin Mimicking effect of Vitamin C 4. Professor Bush states that we all suffere from Sub Clinical Scurvy, which you mention, at some time in our life, and with the modern food processing, most of us suffer it during most of our life — until it kills us in one of a number of ways.
