A review of John Robbins’ Epic Work, The Food Revolution

The work of John Robbins is legendary. He’s the guy who turned down his birthright, running the billion-dollar Baskin Robbins Company. His father and uncle were the founders. His uncle died prematurely of heart disease, and his father was diagnosed with diabetes. And John was the only son, groomed to become CEO. His books The…

Why Ketosis Diets Will Fail: The Paleo and Keto Manifesto

Why Ketosis Diets Will Fail: The Paleo and Keto Manifesto

The most disturbing trend in Wellness these days is that most people have no idea what to eat. When choices were fewer, 100 years ago, how to eat for good health was so much clearer. Americans have been so steeped in the diet fads, that they’re now thoroughly confused about food. Recently, I mentioned to…

What’s The Best Way to Get Omegas? Fish oil? Nooooo!

Animal and vegetable sources of omegas: salmon, avocado, linseed, eggs, butter, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, parsley leaves, rapeseed oil

Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) are “essential” because our bodies do not produce them–we must get them from food on a regular basis.

One of the most powerful industries in America is the dairy industry, earning over $50 billion and spending over $200 million annually to spread the lie that dairy products are necessary for human children’s health. They’re smart enough to target mothers (and they started, very successfully, with our grandmothers), because parents can create habits for…

How To Avoid Hidden Sugar in Your Food

Avoid Hidden Sugar in Food

At GSG I try to be all about the good things you eat and do to fuel and strengthen your body. I want to be all about what to say yes to. Not so much about what you gotta say no, no, never  to. But sugar? It’s everywhere, and it’s nasty stuff. I’ve written before…

Wheat Is Good For You! (But Not How You’re Eating It)

Wheat is good for you

Food fads haven’t served America well. Not one of them has restored us to health, and that’s because each one is underpinned by profit motives, rather than scientific evidence that manipulating macronutrients, or eating specifically for your blood type, or putting your body into some kind of unnatural state, is a positive or sustainable way…
