Beverly Meyer on Diet & Health.com has released a new DVD, The Diet For Human Beings. This entertaining one hour DVD is the result of 25 years of Clinical Nutrition and Natural Health Counseling by Beverly Meyer in her offices at the Diet & Health Center in San Antonio, Texas. It references ideas in current best-selling books on the Paleo, Primal or Ancestral Diet from authors Robb Wolf, Mark Sisson, and Sally Fallon.
Easy chapter selection in The Diet For Human Beings DVD lets the whole family quickly learn how humans ate before the dawn of agriculture and the domestication of animals. The goal is to reduce the starchy sugars and carbohydrates that many believe are the cause of our obesity and diabetes epidemic. Replace those carbohydrates with the saturated fats and protein we need, and have better athletic performance, better sleep, less hunger, and easy weight loss. And no Calorie Counting or dieting!
The Diet For Human Beings emphasizes that “no matter who we are, it’s how we’re meant to eat”. Human stomachs produce Hydrochloric Acid for the specific purpose of digesting meat. We don’t produce cellulase like the ruminant animals do, allowing them to digest starchy feed in their four-chambered stomachs. Humans are not meant to eat grass and the seeds of grass, such as wheat, oats, rice and corn. Gluten grains are particularly unhealthy, as many babies, children and adults produce antibodies to gluten or have Celiac Disease. Other auto-immune disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis may also have their cause in gluten intolerance.
Humans are meant to burn fat for fuel, not glucose or fructose. Excess glucose and fructose require large amounts of insulin, leading to the pre-diabetic condition known as Insulin Resistance.
Wheat Belly author Dr. William Davis believes modern hybridized wheat contributes to his patient’s Heart Disease, and he asks them to avoid wheat, gluten, grains and legumes. Dairy products are also suspected to cause inflammation leading to health concerns. The Diet For Human Beings teaches this as well.
