Since this blog is about sex, and sex is a physical activity, I feel I owe it to my readers to at least briefly touch upon nutrition.
The best book I’ve ever read on nutrition is Deep Nutrition by Catherine Shanahan. It’s got a lot of fascinating stuff on epigenetics (i.e. modifying the expression of your genes). Sadly, most of us our not reaching our genetic potential due to the poor nutrition of the modern diet.
Or, to put it more bluntly, we’re all a lot dumber and uglier than we should be.
The problem I’ve always had with health advice is that there’s always some new thing to be worried about or some new fad to try. What I liked about Shanahan’s book is it teaches you the simple fundamentals of health so you are equipped to judge for yourself.
If you just want the “bottom line” of eating healthy, it’s this:
- AVOID vegetable oils
- MINIMIZE sugar
- Meat on the bone (gently cooked) or bone broth
- Fresh animal or plant products
- Sprouted or fermented foods
- Organ meats
That’s all you have to worry about. If you have a healthy gut you don’t need to freak out about all the toxins and food sensitivities all the hipsters are freaking out about.
Also, eating healthy doesn’t mean eating food that doesn’t taste good. Here’s the breakfast I’ve been making for myself every morning that conforms to the standards of a nutritious diet:
- 2 pieces of sprouted grain bread, lightly toasted, topped with a generous helping of grass-fed butter and
- 2 farm fresh eggs, sunny side up, topped with fresh herbs
- 3 fresh strawberries
Prep time is minimal. The longest part of the process is waiting for the stove to heat up.
And, if you need help remembering not to eat vegetable oil or sugar, just think of this:
When vegetable oil enters your body, it oxidizes and acts like an explosive inside your body, damaging your brain and other organs and (for many) winds up resulting in heart attacks or strokes.
Vegetable oil also causes a man to produce low quality sperm.
And when (excessive) sugar enters your bloodstream, it crystallizes and gets “stuck” in your veins. The resulting blockage makes it difficult for men to “get it up.”
