Ending the Vegetarian Debate Before it Starts

As stated perfectly in 1995 in the journal Current Anthropology: “The incorporation of increasingly greater amounts of animal products into the diet was essential in the development of the large human brain.” Yet so-called health experts continue to recommend and promote meat-free diets?

Quinoa – The High-Carb Seed You Don’t Need

It seems Quinoa has gained a reputation similar to the bean – we’re all convinced it’s a high-protein food that’s somehow equivalent to meat.

Eat More Meat, Burn More Fat. Period!

The current nutrition advice from the government and their dietician disciples may have you believing otherwise, but there’s been undeniable proof since the early 1900’s that eating predominantly animal protein, and limiting carbohydrates, was the ultimate solution for a lean physique.
