Yes, it turns out that many ancient, healthy cultures did eat soy. But they went through an extensive fermentation process to neutralize the toxins that no longer exist today (same with many other plants we eat).
“I learned that diet is really one of the most important pillars for health. Animal products seem to be at the center of our diets, historically. Judging from many civilizations, our ancestors and all the accounts of people who tell us they feel better when they have it in their diet. It is so important to open a discussion about this because the world is getting fed a narrative of how plant based is the future. Unfortunately, plant based/ vegan diets will only worsen and shorten a human’s future.”
Your brain is very energy hungry. It lacks its own engine, thus requires a continuous supply of energy. For most people, this is glucose. Every single day a normal person’s brain consumes approximately 120g of glucose. This is 420kcal of energy which is almost 60% of all glucose utilization at rest .
My goals for this next year are continuing to be an advocate for the lifestyle along with helping others adopt the lifestyle through my coaching. Personal goals are to continue working on every pillar of health from optimizing my sleep routine to stress management.
