Why in cases of chronic illness
is a change in eating habits
the last resort
and not the first resort?
What do you value more -
your health or your habits?
Vegan or paleo?
That is the question.
What is biohacking?
It is health via food.
Are you interested in gaining health, living longer, or losing weight? What if you could eat as much as you want – without counting calories? Health is wealth.
Your health or your habits?
Skeptical? So am I. What matters more to you – your health or your eating habits? Results are possible in one to three weeks, depending on only one condition, a change in eating habits. Health is a choice that begins in the mind – without shame, guilt nor moral judgement. It can be difficult, but substitutes are possible. This may mean a change of preferences. The sweetest pleasure of all in life is good health, not the taste of sugar.
Ideas you can use
This site is named after the book “Health via Food“, written by Dr. William Howard Hay, MD, and published in 1929. Like many doctors, Dr. Hay thought only about his work. Like some people today, he was overweight and in bad health. He treated and healed himself most of all by changing how he composed each meal. The weight loss was a side effect. Hay’s ideas were later independently confirmed and reported by Dr. Herbert Shelton, MD, in his book “Food Combining“, published in 1952.
There are thousands of books, courses, and websites about health, nutrition, food, weight loss, and living longer. What is the difference with this site? The difference is that this site:
- has information for personalized nutrition,
- summarizes in practical terms various ideas and methods,
- makes it possible to forget about calories,
- includes referenced research to explain scientifically why these methods work, and
- does not promote supplements.
The main ideas are food combining, the acid-alkaline balance, blood type eating, detox, eliminations, and chrono-nutrition. None of these ideas are original to me. You can find them all in books by medical doctors. Other doctors confirm these ideas independently.
Forget about calories.
These ideas and methods go beyond cutting junk food (sugary, starchy food) and eating more vegetables. Some of the ideas are provocative and not accepted by the health authorities. They confront the model that defines health as the absence of disease. Forget about calories. Eat as much as you want. Try an idea for a week or two, and then see how you feel. If you feel better, continue.
Think about nutrients not calories.
This site also includes information about nutrients, both macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients (minerals and vitamins), how they are used in the body, and what foods have them. Recipes are included. Ninety percent of what I eat is from three basic recipes – smoothies, steamed vegetables, and sautees. With few exceptions, these recipes are quick, inexpensive, and apply all of the key ideas. Some foods are healthy for some people, but not for others.
What to eat to maintain your health?
A frequently asked question that many people have is – what do I eat (or not eat) to maintain my own health myself? At the same time, there is much confusing and contradictory information about nutrition and healthy eating today. There is no one set of eating habits that is healthy for everybody. Most observers tend to overlook biochemical individuality. In other words, what is healthy for you may not be healthy for me and vice versa.
As a result, depending on your point of view, there is either a jungle or a desert of information that you can use. Many people find out what foods are healthy or unhealthy for them by trial and error sooner or later. The honest doctors’ ideas and methods, as described on this website, make it possible for you to find out quickly what foods are healthy for you. Some gentle trial and error is required. Your goal is to improve your digestion and to become ridiculously healthy for your age. You are the only one who can evaluate your digestion. If your digestion is healthy, you are healthy.
Nota bene. Some people choose what to eat and what not to eat for philosophical, spiritual, or religious reasons. This site does not serve these people. This site is oriented towards health and science. Nothing in this site is intended to diagnose, prevent, treat, or cure any disease. If you have a medical condition, see a doctor.
