The current landscape of health and nutrition literature is a maze of conflicting advice, contradicting ideas, and flawed premises. "The Natural Diet" is an attempt to cut through all of that as helpfully and succinctly as possible, with an emphasis on what you need to know to be as healthy as you can for the rest of your life. Too often, people who make a good-faith effort to learn more about nutrition end up more confused than they were when they started. Have you ever had that feeling? A magazine, or book, or TV spokesman says "This list of foods is good for you, and this list is bad. Always do this, and never do that." Meanwhile, one person's list looks completely different from someone else's, and what 'everybody' is saying you should eat is different from what 'everybody' said you should eat ten years ago, which is completely different from what was 'in' another ten years before that. On an intuitive level, these diet fads just don't make sense. Some people say milk and dairy are bad for us. How can milk be bad, if we're mammals, and milk is sufficiently nutritious to feed us through the period of our lives when good nutrition is most critical? Other authorities will insist that the only way to be healthy is to eat a more or less flavorless diet. How can a 'healthy' diet be so unpleasant to the senses-in other words, why would our noses and tongues make 'unhealthy' food seem appealing, and 'healthy' food bland and undesirable? Does it really make sense that your body is built to lead you to the wrong foods? Still others will tell you that you must take some supplement or eat some invented superfood for optimal health. How can our bodies 'require' a certain food product that has only been created in recent history? Were human beings never healthy until its invention, and did the human body somehow evolve to require a product that didn't even exist yet? So many of the most common ideas in nutrition just don't hold up if you spend a few minutes thinking about them. Couple this with the fact that there are cultures all around the world who spend practically no time thinking about being fat or thin and enjoy longer lives and better health than most in the developed West do, and it becomes clear that we're missing something important on an intuitive level. "The Natural Diet" seeks to end this confusion once and for all-it's a two-hour read that will change the way you understand food and nutrition forever.
