5 Why is there so much conflicting advice about diet ?

6 Bad science Preconceived ideas, “blinders”, pride Profit motive, conflict of interest Need to make a name for oneself Doctors who have little training in nutrition and do not read the primary literature Dieticians whose training is controlled and sponsored by the major food processors

7 John P. Ioannidis Professor and Chairman at the Department of Hygiene and Epidemiology,  University of Ioannina School of Medicine, Adjunct Professor at Tufts University School of Medicine and Professor of Medicine and Director of the Stanford Prevention Research Center at Stanford University School of Medicine

8 Lies, Damn Lies & Medical Science
Much of what biomedical researchers conclude in published studies is misleading, exaggerated, and often flat-out wrong. As much as 90 percent of the published medical information that doctors rely on is flawed.

9 Technology facilitates information-sharing
The internet provides: Powerful search engines Access to online journals Bloggers galore Discussion Forums Inexpensive e-books

10 Hugely increased interest in alternative / natural treatments because of
Dissatisfaction with the current medical model: Dx / Rx / Rx / Rx / Rx / Rx Rapidly declining physical and mental health

17 What is required or encouraged
When comparing diets, consider What is allowed Vs. What is required or encouraged

18 Don’t choose a diet simply because it allows you to continue eating a favorite food that may be a problem for you!

20 WAP version: Dairy best if raw Grains, nuts (and legumes)
s/b soaked, sprouted or fermented. Saturated fats and organ meats stressed. Fermented foods vital. Coffee, tea and juices discouraged. Small amounts of min. processed cane sugar OK.

21 Different Kinds of Vegetarians
Vegetarian: A person who consistently eats no meat, fish, or poultry Semi-vegetarian: Someone who’s cutting back on his or her intake of meat, in general. Lacto ovo vegetarian: A person who excludes meat, fish, and poultry but includes dairy products and eggs. Most vegetarians in the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe fall into this category. Lacto ovo vegetarians eat such foods as cheese, ice cream, yogurt, milk, and eggs, as well as foods made with these ingredients. Lacto vegetarian: A lacto vegetarian diet excludes meat, fish, and poultry, as well as eggs and any foods containing eggs. A lacto vegetarian would, however, eat dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cheese. Vegan: Technically, the term vegan refers to more than just the diet alone. A vegan is a vegetarian who avoids eating or using all animal products, including meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy products, any foods containing by-products of these ingredients, wool, silk, leather, and any nonfood items made with animal byproducts. Some vegans avoid honey. One adaptation of a vegetarian diet is a raw foods diet, in which adherents eat a diet that consists primarily of uncooked foods. Fruititarian: A person whose diet consists only of fruits and of vegetables botanically classified as fruits, such as tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, and avocados; and seeds and nuts.

22 Reasons for choosing a vegetarian or vegan diet
Concern for animal welfare Concern for the environment Belief that it is personally healthier Positive experience with elimination of animal protein Toxins/drugs in factory meat Digestive issues Simultaneous elimination of real junk foods Histamine sensitivity Placebo effect

23 Many feel very good initially when changing
to a vegetarian or vegan diet but eventually find their health declines until they add meat back to their diet. Monitor your health closely if choosing this option, and consult With a doctor or nutritionist who can help you avoid deficiencies. This approach is not recommended by the Weston A Price Foundation.

24 Real Foods Diet? Weston A Price: Yes, always
Vegetarian or Vegan: Not necessarily (May contain a number of meat, dairy and egg substitutes)

25 Plant-Based Diet A plant-based diet is one based on vegetables, grains, legumes and fruit, with little or no animal products (including dairy).[1] It can refer to: Veganism: a plant-based diet with no food from animal sources. The term veganism can also refer to a lifestyle that rejects the use of animal products for any reason. Fruitarianism: a form of veganism, in which meals consist primarily of fruit. Raw veganism: a form of veganism, in which food is uncooked or only dehydrated. Vegetarianism: a plant-based diet that may include eggs, milk, and cheese. Semi-vegetarianism: a plant-based diet with occasional inclusion of meat products.[2] Macrobiotic diet: a plant-based diet with occasional seafood. Nutritarian: a person who eats as many micronutrients per calorie as possible, primarily from vegetables and fresh fruits, and avoids processed foods. --from Wikipedia

26 All disease begins in the gut. Let thy food be thy medicine,
And thy medicine be thy food. Hippocrates, Father of Modern Medicine

27 For long-term healing, gut health is critical! Leaky Gut Gut Dysbiosis

28 GF or GZ (Gluten Zero) Eliminating gluten often first step in healing
Important to be 110% gluten-free Many are gluten sensitive w/o digestive issues : many stories of healing from physical and mental problems William David, MD

29 Taking the next step Paleo(lithic), a real-foods diet which attempts to imitate the diet eaten by humans in pre-agricultural times, excluding grains, legumes, processed sweeteners and (usually) dairy Also called Caveman Diet or Ancestral Diet Followed by increasing numbers of people to varying degrees Fat content variable, usually low carb

30 A good 30-day trial of Paleo

31 Paleo: not necessarily a high-meat diet, but usually high in plant foods

32 Two less strict versions of Paleo
Primal Blueprint Includes dairy if tolerated Allows other foods generally considered beneficial such as small amounts of coffee, dark chocolate, alcohol, tamari Author Mark Perfect Health Diet Includes higher amounts of carbs from “safe starches” such as white rice, taro, tapioca, plantains, sago, etc. Author Paul

33 Going a bit farther Stricter real-foods diet, such as GAPS, SCD or the Paleo Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP) Beginning with an intro diet of very limited easily digestible foods and slowly adding foods in a controlled fashion

34 Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP)
No Yes eggs veggies nuts grass-fed meat seeds (including wild-caught fish spices and coffee) bone broth nightshades organ meats alcohol coconut oil NSAIDS grains legumes sugar Image from

35 AIP Resources Facebook Group: Pacific Northwest Autoimmune Paleo Group

36 Histamine 4 different kinds of histamine receptors A “game changer
in chronic illness” ~John Gannage, MD

37 Histamine Sensitivity
May require eliminating or limiting consumption of otherwise nutritious healing foods such as bone broth, ferments, raw milk, organ meats and certain fruits and vegetables. Can cause many different physical and mental symptoms (4 types of histamine receptors). Trial of low-histamine diet best way to confirm Tolerance level varies from person to person.

40 Choosing a New Diet Start with JERF / WAP. (JERF = Just Eat Real Food)
Get rid of your biases. Remember: Every BODY is different. Consider cravings a sign of a problem food. Think GUT HEALTH. Keep a food journal, possibly using an app for food sensitivity Use your personal private lab. For serious issues, try an elimination diet. Keep monitoring your health for + or – changes.

41 The Perfect Diet for You?
