Carnivore? Keto? Vegan? Paleo? Low Fat? High Protein?
How come there's so many different diets that all claim to have the right answers, yet obesity and chronic disease rates still continue to climb at an alarming rate?
I'm not saying that diet is the only factor, but the food we put into our bodies plays a critical role in our overall health.
Food can be your medicine or it can be your poison.
So what's the best diet?
While I'm not naive enough to tell you I know the exact foods, proportions, quantity, and quality that is going to be ideal for your body given your genetics and current circumstances in life; I am confident that I can provide the framework to help you easily begin to identify these things for yourself in a way that is repeatable and practical.
We're all as different on the inside as we are on the outside and we are all on our own unique life path. Given the fact that human beings have been shown to survive and thrive off a myriad of different diets, any diet that claims to be the one right way to eat is a huge red flag.
But what I do know is this:
From the moment you put something into your mouth to the time it completely leaves your system is about 54-72 hours on average. This is called your retention period.
Because of this, if you're eating the same things every single day you could potentially be overstimulating your immune system if you have sensitivities, intolerances, or allergies to those particular foods. In this way, even the "healthiest" foods can be problematic and lead to a number of different health issues.
The best way to identify what foods are problematic and make sure you're not overeating any one particular type of food, you want to allow the foods you eat to completely leave your system before you bring them back in.
To do this you can follow a 4-Day Rotation Diet.
Simply put, a 4-Day Rotation Diet is a protocol of only eating certain foods on a given day and then not eating those foods again until that day comes back around after four days. So you'll end up having four different days consisting of different foods on each day.
The beauty of this is that once you install the 4-Day Rotation Diet you'll easily begin to see what foods need to be eliminated as well as allow your digestive system to heal from inflammation caused by over exposure to certain problematic foods. You'll also be providing your body with a wider range of nutrition.
And once you start the rotation you can literally repeat the same rotation over and over again because you're allowing food to leave your system before eating it again, so each day is essentially a fresh start for your digestive and immune systems.
I have not met a single person that properly implemented the 4-Day Rotation Diet that hasn't seen amazing results in their body composition and overall health.
