Have you ever heard of the ethnic diet?
it is where you should only eat what your ancestory/race would of eaten. If you are Chinese, you only eat foods from the asia region, if you are
Italian, you only eat Mediterranean foods.
That part of our health issues and obesity epidemic is because we are eating foods that are not genetically compatible. IN other words, a native
American shouldn't eat bananas or mangos, as they wouldnt' of had access to them.
Yup, that is what I am finding works best for me. My mother was always trying to look for better foods...better recipes...outside of our ancestral
eating habits. Her health was never good. My sister was plagued with autoimmune issues because she ate too much breads and also drank milk because
it "is good for you". I do fine eating traditional foods. Meat, potatoes, and boiled veggies. I can eat raw fruit great but drinking juices causes
a spike in insulin which leads to hypoglycemic problems. My sugar bottoms out one and a half to two hours after drinking a glass of juice or a soft
drink. I used to think the spins at night after going out drinking came from the alcohol, it was not the alcohol really, it was the insulin my body
created to combat the alcohol sugars and starches. Strange how when you actually pay attention and relate it to past events in your life, you find
out what is happening...thanks to the recent release of government paid research that has happened since Obama required these documents to be open to
The funny thing is, what we think of as Italian food is not what the old Italians eat. It is a new version of it. I am a Finn. I have old Italian
friends, they do not eat the Pasta dishes the way we eat it. Their meals are different than they are nowadays. We even messed up these dishes, go to
an old Italian restaurant and see how they serve the traditional meal.
