Have you found your perfect diet?

Have you found your perfect diet yet? Which should be for the rest of your life so that’s why I often prefer to call it “lifestyle” instead of a diet. Paleo, LCHF (low carb healthy fat)………

This is a laid-back conversation between Dave Asprey, the Bulletproof Executive and Abel James, the Fat-burning Man. Two “high performance” men discussing food and health. As they say:

If you are not thinking, then you will be doing it wrong

If you are on Paleo and start to eat processed foods marked “Paleo”, think again. It´s still processed food! Don’t be fooled into eat highly processed foods marked “low carb”, “Paleo”, “Vegan”, or even “gluten free.”

What’s the perfect diet for you?

Artificial sweeteners linked to obesity and diabetes

I’m glad to see more studies on the link between artificial sweeteners, obesity and diabetes. I think many people still believe that a diet soda is good for their health.

LET’S TALK TRASH!

Sweden is quite famous for its trash and how to deal with it. Sweden is now recycling 99 percent of its trash. Do you think this is the best way to take care of our trash?

In Sweden, where I live, we have one personal bin for “energy” trash and one bin for composting trash, and the rest we have to bring to a recycling station.

Can you produce less trash each week?
Can you recycle more than you currently do?
Are you not interested in this topic? You should be!

Low carb breakfast recipes

omelette-la

I believe many people struggle with the breakfast. My two favorites are:

Mixed platter with avocado, cucumber, ham or any other kind of meat, eggs mashed in butter or coconut oil, etc.

Greek yogurt (plain, organic, 10 % fat) with berries, mixed nuts (walnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds, hazelnuts pecans), small amounts of seeds (pumpkin and sunflower seeds), and coconut flakes.

Some people prefer only Bulletproof coffee as breakfast and if you are not hungry or don’t give yourself time to eat breakfast, perhaps it’s a good choice, but personally I prefer proper food with more nutrients.

Here you have some more breakfast recipes from Authority Nutrition. However, you will want to skip fruit, syrup and honey! Small amounts of berries should be enough, if they won’t give you cravings.

I know that eggs are a favorite for many but don’t eat eggs every day. Three to four times a week is enough, because it is very easy to become allergic to eggs if you are eating them every day. Try to have three to four different breakfast dishes to choose from.

If you still don’t know how to think about low carb eating, you can always repeat 10 times ;-)

“Low-fat foods, sugar, and grains make me fat. 
High-fat foods make me thin.”

According to Gallup it’s a long way to go.

Do you have some good low carb breakfast recipes to share?

Should you be eating dairy?

I have said it many times before; should you be eating dairy?

To eat dairy or not is a tricky question. Personally I love Greek yogurt (plain, organic, 10% fat) and cheese, in small amounts, but I know for sure that many people should not eat dairy. Here is a short video from Dr. Mark Hyman about dairy, to be or not to be.

Pre diabetes increases the risk of cancer by 15 percent, study of almost 900,000 people shows.
