Podcast: If Grizzlies Eat Plants, Why Can’t You?

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Grizzly bears eat a lot of plants because catching animals is not that easy.  Wolves are carnivores but are only successful at capturing their prey 30% of their efforts.  If these to predators don’t eat meat every day then why do humans?  Our lifestyle diseases are largely from metabolic excess and toxin exposure that goes along with excess nutrition.  

If you look at a day of half and half coffee creamer, eggs, butter on toast, olive oil on vegetables and ranch dressing on a salad you can figure on an extra 450 calories of fat a day.  That translates into about an extra pound gained every 8-9 days or the same lost if that were to be replaced by soy milk, oatmeal, and the elimination of oil in the preparation of vegetables.  Can you imagine how many calories, saturated fat, and cholesterol would be added if meat was in that menu?  

The health of humans is rapidly deteriorating secondary to the excess energy consumed on a daily basis.  We cannot adequately address lifestyle diseases without addressing nutrition.
