Today’s Blog is short and sweet and is taken from Liz Wolfe’s book “Eat the Yolks”.
When patients finish their FMT treatment program at the Taymount Clinic (www.taymount.com) they inevitably ask us what is the way to continue forward with their diet. Because nothing is ever set in stone and there is always opportunity to learn more in the future, our current way of thinking is as follows:
Seek real, nutrient-filled food, as close to its natural state as possible: whole, unprocessed, unmodified, and unrefined.
Pretend the modern supermarket doesn’t exist. Choose foods that could be hunted and gathered food that has always been food.
Support local, responsible producers.
Eat vegetables and fruits. Eat meat and fat from properly raised animals, eggs, and seafood. Enjoy cold-pressed oils and plants rich in healthy facts, like coconut, avocado, and olives.
Incorporate superfoods: fermented vegetables and beverages, home-made bone broth, and organ meats (if you dare).
Above all, ditch obsessive behaviour and “diets”.
Question conventional wisdom.
Eat real food.
In a world in which we swim in huge amounts of information, often conflicting but always confusing, it is refreshing to find a guiding light. Liz’s book “Eat the Yokes” could be subtitled “The Hitch-hikers Guide to Normal Eating”
