Why the current Food Pyramid Is Wrong And What You Can Do About It
Do you feel that becoming the best you can be is more than difficult?
That you are held back from achieving your best by frustrating issues like body fat, sore joints, irritated bowels and brain fog?
Interestingly, a consistent pattern in food pyramids around the world puts cereals, grains, bread, pasta and other starchy carbohydrates at the base of the food pyramid diet. And good fats from healthy sources are at the top as a “use sparingly” category.
This is exactly opposite of what a well-balanced diet should be. This model has been proven to lead to a myriad of health problems such as:
- Excessive weight gain
- Risk of heart disease due to high cholesterol levels
- Higher blood sugars leading to diabetes and other related diseases
- Brain fog and much, much more…
Ben Greenfield, has listened to requests from his coaching clients, readers and listeners to design a “Ben Greenfield Endorsed” food pyramid. His new design is called the Superhuman Food Pyramid. His new food pyramid addresses all the above issues in depth according to his personal nutritional philosophies that he has expressed many times in consultations, blog posts, podcasts and talks around the world.
In the fifth book of this seven part series, “Part 5: Vegetables” you will learn:
- A full spectrum of choices from “Eat” to “Moderate” and to “Avoid” in each food group.
- How tryptophan, a type of amino acid found in avocados, can help prevent depression.
- What well known vegetable has long been hailed as a health food.
- Which fat found in olives optimizes cardiovascular health
- About non-GMO corn benefits, risks and practical uses.
- The reason edible nightshade vegetables may not be for everyone.
As a bonus to make it easier to practically apply Ben’s Superhuman Food Pyramid to your diet, several pages have been added at the end of the book listing each food category and the Eat, Moderate, and avoid foods within that category.
You can simply print, grab and go to the grocery store or farmer’s market with your Superhuman Food list.
