Step 2: Nutrition

During the past two decades we have learned more about the long-term effects of diet on health than from all of the prior medical history of nutrition.

Walter Willett M.D., Chairman of the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School is bold enough to write, " A healthy diet teamed up with regular exercise and no smoking can eliminate 80% of heart disease and 70% of some cancers."

He offers the following seven simple guidelines to improve your diet:

1) Watch your weight
2) Eat fewer bad fats and more good fats
3) Eat fewer refined-grain carbs and more whole grain carbs.
4) Choose healthier sources of protein.
5) Eat plenty of vegetables and fruit, but hold the potatoes.
6) Use alcohol in moderation.
7) Take multivitamins for insurance.

When we talk about nutrition we are including the macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat) and the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).

Humanity has existed as a genus for about 2 million years. Our prehuman hominid ancestors, the australopithecines, appeared at least 4 million years ago.

The genetic makeup of humans has changed little since the appearance of modern humans, Homo sapiens sapiens, about 40,000 years ago.
Even the development of agriculture about 10,00 years ago has had little effect on our genes.

Boyd Eaten M.D. wrote an article in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1985 entitled Paleolithic Nutrition and showed that "differences between the dietary patterns of our remote ancestors and the patterns now prevalent in industrial countries appear to have important implications for health, and the specific pattern of nutritional disease is a function of the stage of civilization".

We now know that the USDA Food Pyramid was built on very shaky scientific research back in 1992. The recommendations were that we should eat 2 or more servings from each of the 4 food groups: Meat and fish, vegetables and fruits, milk and milk products and breads and cereals.
Adults living before the development of agriculture and animal husbandry derived all their nutrients from the first two food groups only. They apparently consumed cereal grains rarely, if at all. They had no dairy foods whatsoever.

Medical research over the last two decades has defined a preventive diet against a range of chronic diseases from heart disease to cancer. This research is converging in several ways with information from paleontologists and anthropologists. Due to these reason the pyramid had recently been completely revised. (See Omega Rx Zone Food Pyramid).

A summary of this research is best presented in the Omega Rx Zone by Dr. Barry Sears. In it you realize that you can use food as a drug and manipulate the hormones of your body to achieve a state of optimal health, physical performance and mental alertness. If you change what you eat, you do not have to be overly concerned with how much you eat. The zone diet is easy to follow for a lifetime of healthy eating.
