I have called this video “an insider’s guide” to diets because over the last six decades, I have fallen foul all of them all, and I’ve had a serious autoimmune condition to try them all out on too. This is my attempt to throw some light on all the ridiculous misconceptions we have picked up about what we should and shouldn’t eat from governments, dietitians and Indian gurus when really we should be looking for clues in our ancestral heritage. It’s more about light cycles, latitude and inflammatory/metabolic history, so throw out your dogma and use your intuition instead.

Here is a pictorial history of how these diets affected my body…

    People in the Appalachians used to raise their own cows and they were mostly free range. They let them roam and graze on the mountains and used the old cowbell to find them. Now the wealthy have bought up the land and fenced it off and make sure people stay off it.

    Paleolithic times? Good point.. it's 2018. I've done many diets just like you but I'm sticking with a low fat plant based diet. Yes, I'm young, in my twenties. The health benefits that you may get from not eating carbs sounds crazy but the low carb intake is much like fasting. Fasting has very many benefits that can help with inflammation. Don't get confused with the benefits of fasting and eating meat, they aren't the same thing. It's what you put into your body after you fast is what matters. Eat plants, our ansestors are mostly plants. Yes we survived off of meat to help us calorically but most of our calories came from plants and tubers. Meat is survival food not a staple, it's 2018, not the Stone age, we have no reason to eat meat except for our own pleasure. What's more important, the life of an animal or the feeding taste of a piece of meat? It's not good for health, not good for environment. Only reasons we eat it is for what? Pleasure of taste, culture, and convenience. Taste or life?

    Might I suggest that (possibly) it was the consumption of "grains" that fucked your insides up, leaving you unable to tolerate even fruit and veg where otherwise you'd have been fine with them. Given our evolution I'm increasingly convinced that so-called "grains" (grass seed) are fundamentally problematic for the human body which has only one stomach compared to the four stomachs of cows and other grass eaters. I personally cannot tolerate wheat corn and oats, but I'd have difficulty believing that humans are what are termed "hypercarnivores" consuming 70%+ meat, though I'm open-minded enough to perhaps try all-meat sometime. It has been suggested that meat eating allowed the human brain to grow while our stomachs shrunk – a key shift in metabolism without which we'd still be an australopithicus or something. http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/real-paleo-diet-early-hominids-ate-just-about-everything/

    😂😂 paleo treats….. In the states there’s Paleo Certified, a lot of products like paleo flours, cookies, chips, cakes etc….All it means if Free From grains & beans, that’s all. Which yes is a step up, but indeed if you are autoimmune that’s yet another journey! Something I’ve noticed about Systemic psoriatic arthritis is an inability to excrete OXALATE. Btw “arthritis” is the most silly name for that autoimmune disease, because it gives ppl the wrong impression that its “just arthritis”…But it’s not. It actually has more in common with SLE, but different pathways. PsA effects the endothelial cells too, the liver is faulty as well, and I’d even go as far as calling it Type5 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome, type2diabetes and fatty liver are inherent in psoriatic arthritis. It effects the eyes, heart, kidneys, bowel, everything. So it’s a systemic autoimmune disease. It needs re-naming. I even came across a bit of new info too, that showed how Psoriatics own fat cells excrete inflammatory cytokines. Great channel btw Phil….I love how calm you are lol. Even with the Carnivore scene, I hate the macho thing, the big tough guys thing. And jokey banter about killing animals, all that macho stuff I can’t stand it. So it’s REALLY refreshing to get somebody calm and cantered and balanced talking about this!!!!

    Can you make a video on what you usually eat, whether it's all just meat, what types of meat (if all just grass fed, etc.), how much fat, any dairy, how much and how many meals a day, etc?

    I'm sceptical. Our evolution should primarily be viewed as that of primates going back many tens of millions of years, and that surely means a plant-based diet with moderate meat consumption. Now I'm willing to concede that in coming down from the trees several million years ago our dietary needs began to change somewhat with greater meat consumption, but 100% meat (?), can't see it personally. I've been adopting something akin to the paleo diet for about a year with good results having found that multiple varieties of grains were causing me health problems. And I think you misconstrue paleo – it's purpose is simply looking to evolution to provide best guidance on ideal human food for now, not to replicate an actual Stone Age diet, a common mis-conception.

    Ah, I see what's going on now. Since a vegetarian diet didn't work for you it must be bad for everyone. Are you familiar with the acronym YMMV? Btw, I'm neither vegan nor vegetarian. I just avoid the extremes. Tbh, it sounds to me like you've abandoned one extreme for another.

    You know what I find fascinating is that I think you are wrong about 100% of what you said in this video. I'm not saying that as an argument or criticism, or to pick a fight or whatever…but what I'm finding fascinating is, how can two people study the same question (diet) and reach such completely opposite conclusions? Just a weird phenomenon to me.

    I have avoided refined sugar for 5 years. But when I went vegan 14 months ago, giving up animal proteins my cholesterol dropped 80 points and I got off my blood pressure medication. My blood pressure completely normalized. Oh and I haven't taken one aspirin in 14 months. So for me at least, veganism is working great.

    Religion & health is actually a great comparison,… People in their 20's to people in their 70's, including Doctors & Nutritionists, still can't get off of what they have been taught !
    I still hear Doc's & Dietitians say "We KNOW",… NO !… You BELIEVE that Sat Fats & Cholesterol cause Heart Disease because that's what has been pushed for decades 🙁
    Religious folk say that God exists but does he ?… You may BELIEVE it with all your soul but that doesn't mean it's real 😉

    Hi Chris
    Finding all this very interesting….I wonder would you give me some idea of what a couple of typical days of eating 100% meat looks like for you….do you eat 3 times a day? Or just when hungry? And how much meat do you eat…..a whole turkey or 3 steaks a pound of mince? Many thanx

    Sounds like you've tried every diet. You said that each diet provided some benefits. You say that you wrote about each one and promoted them. So, based on past experience, this diet might not last forever for you, either. And you like to go on others channels and challenge those who are on diets you used to be on. So I expect that you will soon be doing the same with this one.

    Fasting is great! I used to fast every Friday for many years, and did a 24 day fast once.

    I think a raw fruit diet is really a form of fasting, and probably works like a cleanse, and is good for constipation and diverticulitis.
    Raw food diets are possible long term, but most people add some cooked potatoes and rice after a while, after they heal.

    Veganism isn't a diet, it's a philosophy that is a reflection of awareness of suffering. Veganism allows candy and junk foods, because it only describes a category of foods to avoid as part of a lifestyle that avoids all animal products. Vegans can be extremely unhealthy, since it's not about human health, but rather not hurting animals. Veganism can be part of a healthy diet if you know how to eat healthy, and you should probably try to grow some of your own food and buy organic and eat locally and seasonally.

    I did paleo for a while, but during that time I got cancer. I think it was from 20 years of having undiagnosed celiac disease before that time.

    I was helping a family many years ago who were doing a doctor supervised ketogenic diet for their toddler, who had up to 30 seizures a day. He went down to less than 10 seizures per day. But ketogenic diets have a lot of dangerous, serious, side effects, and a doctor needs to help monitor your health. I don't recommend this diet for weight loss, or any minor complaint, since it's really a form of medical treatment, not a good long term lifestyle. I've heard it used for cancer, but there isn't enough research on it for it to be a safe bet for all types of cancer. For instance, I don't think it would work for liver cancer.

    Auto immune diseases are signals the body is fighting an infection, and/or toxins.
    I was vegetarian for many years, and didn't know I had Celiac. Eating vegetarian or vegan doesn't mean you are eating healthy. I used to eat a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches. The gluten and casein made my celiac much worse.

    I used to be a medical missionary in a tropical country. We had to get a ton of vaccinations, sanitation was poor, and I think I got giardia and maybe some other parasites. So when you were traveling in the 60s, you might have been reacting as much to the local bugs as to the grains you weren't used to.

    Most of our digestion and absorption is done by our microbiome. So whenever you switch diets, you switch gut bacteria. This takes time and an adjustment period where you get indigestion. No matter what diet.

    I found out that it helps a lot to rinse and soak your grains overnight, or even 24 hours. Rice, and quinoa especially, needs to be rinsed and soaked. I make oats overnight in a slow cooker. This helps a lot. Same for beans, lentils and nuts.

    I heard that it's best to cook beans in a pressure cooker, which helps to get rid of the anti nutrients.

    So for grains and any food, you have to watch out for how they are processed. You can get pesticide residues in grains, and meat, depending on what it is fed. And flours in our country can have bromine added to it, as well as anti fungals, (antibiotics) like copper, irritating iron filings, or it can be contaminated with molds from long-term storage in massive grain silos.

    There are a lot of health problems from processed foods, like trans-fats, in margarine,
    glyphosate, which hurts your microbiome,
    Artificial preservatives, which also prevents digestion,
    artificial food colorings which can stain nerve cells,
    artificial sweeteners like aspartame which actually is a neurotransmitter, and can cause brain swelling,
    dough conditioners,
    toxic free -running agents in salt,
    Fluoride, which is added to water and salt, is an antibiotic and can hurt your microbiome, and your bones.
    Meats like chicken can be fed arsenic to increase weight gain. They are fed diets designed to make them gain weight quickly, and they are bread to have a lot if growth hormone in them. Growth hormones aren't good if you have cancer.
    Factory farmed animals can have a lot of cancer and other diseases. And medications in the meat.

    I guess, know your farmer. Know where your food comes from. Cook from scratch more. Avoid pre processed foods. You have to trust Food prepared by someone else, since it can have all kinds if things done to it before it gets to your plate, and all kinds of mistakes and accidents can happen to it before you eat it.
