30 Bananas a Day!

Carbs are killing us! This is what the media tells people!

Dr Oz episode today dissing carbs! Even fruit!

Cannot believe this! WTF! This Dr. Perlmutter is a quack.  Here are some ?s from his FAQ section on his website.


How much carbohydrate do we absolutely require in the diet?


While we definitely require protein and fat, the human requirement for dietary carbohydrate is none, none whatsoever.


What is the ideal diet for optimal brain function?


The brain thrives on a fat-rich low-carbohydrate diet, which unfortunately, is relatively uncommon in human populations today.


Do “good carbs” set off insulin and/or increase blood pressure? Is there anything bad about them?


All carbohydrates ultimately activate insulin to some degree. It is difficult to get a clear understanding of what may actually constitute a “good” carb.

Yep JoberrySweetnRaw I feel the same way you do.  The conflicting research is crazy.  I truly feel that this is the natural diet of humans and I can't and wont eat any other way.  I too am saddened and almost angry at myself for contributing to the slaughtering and suffering of animals.  I wish I could take could change the past but I can't.  All I can do is move on and create a better future and hopefully save some animals in the process.  I turned my dad vegan.  He is cooked vegan but at least vegan.  I want to turn him to a fruity vegan.  And I am working on influencing my brother to go vegan.  And I am hoping at some point to convince my sister but she is very un open to the idea and flat out sad find a different solution to my health concerns other then being vegan she told me she can still be healthy and not vegan.  I just said I disagree and left it at that.  I hope maybe one day I can change her mind but I doubt it.

I agree there is a lot of conflicting research out there and there always will be... I just believe that as humans we are naturally good and should keep the innocence we have as young children to not hurt another living creature especially not devour. I truly believe our natural diet is 811 with fruit being our staple. It feels so right to live this way I don't think I could ever go back! I wish I could go back in time with the knowledge I have now. I would have not contributed to the slaughtering and suffering of animals for my consumption.

Well there is actually is research that backs this claim and when I was struggling to fine the healthiest diet possible I stumbled into this research and it is quite compelling.  They claim that the reason people suffer on high fat diets is because they eat too many carbs.  And if they reduced it to 50g of carbs a day you would adjust to burning fat as energy and you would thrive.  They claim the longest lived people are the people who burn the most fat as energy over a lifetime.  I don't know who these supposed longest living fat burners are but this is what the articles claim.  There are other claims and arguments they make that support this belief.  I was so conflicted before this lifestyle because there was that research and then there were other research.  I was stuck in inaction not knowing how to eat I was going insane then I simply stumbled across this lifestyle and I knew it was my answer.  Despite all the conflicting information out there something inside of me knew I found my answer and I literally jumped into this lifestyle overnight.  I have never once been able to decide something that quickly but I knew if I am wrong I am wrong so be it because all I know is I don't give a crap if they are right and the brain thrives on fat as long as you cut carbs down to 50g a day because I would rather eat fruit then a bunch of freaking fat and animal products.  Never I don't care if science proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the high fat high protein was the healthiest way to eat.  I don't care at this point I would still eat fruit.  I can't eat animal products.  In fact just the other day I was overcome with sadness and grief and I cried because of the fact that I ever ate me and I mourned for all the animals that I was responsible for killing.  And I mourned for me as well and the damage I caused my body by eating them.  I wish I had never eaten meat but I have to except I did and move on.  But never again.  No matter what "convincing research" people try to throw at me.
