A message from Cabo on a beautiful day. It’s Dr. Rob. How are you doing?
We are meant to get fat. The simple concept in life is that fat is energy. The storage of fat is survival. Losing weight, as you know, is very difficult, because we are not meant to lose weight. We are meant to use the energy that we store. We are meant to store, so we have it. We are driven to eat the things that we sometimes think are good (or not good). High carbohydrate foods and fibrous things are meant to be eaten because they feel good and taste good. Our body wants us to eat them in order to store the fat, to have the energy, to thrive and survive as it needed to when food was less abundant.
In fact, we are meant to get fat. We are not meant to be thin and svelte. We are not meant to live a long time – simply long enough to reproduce and protect our young so they can reproduce. That’s it.
In a modern world where we begin to believe and bring our thoughts and ideas into health and wellness, we’ve been mass marketed incorrect information: that fruits, vegetables and fibers are good for us; and fat is bad for us.
In fact, quite the opposite is true. Animal fat is the best thing you can consume. If you are working to stay slim and healthy, then you want to get rid of all of that junk (fruits, vegetable, fibers) that we are told are healthy and good. This is the hard part, though. We are always trying to mix the right amount of fat, protein, and carbs. Truth is, there’s no right amount of carbs. Carbs are completely unnecessary, and fiber is a damaging component to our gut. It’s the flame producing stuff. It ferments. It gets hot. It gets perfect for bacteria and fungi to grow. Irritable bowel, Crohn’s Disease, cancer, you name it –every disease of our bodies is caused by inflammation and the primary source is the gut. It’s really very simple, as Occam’s razor says: the simplest answer is usually the right one.
Our body doesn’t really care about living a long time. But now we are learning some ideas about how we can take our bodies, our minds, our lives and the lives of others to a new level. Health and wellness is built on eating fat. That’s where it’s at: animal fat.
Don’t trust me. Check it out for yourself. Check out Garry Taubes’ Good Calories, Bad Calories. From there, there’s a multitude of people with ideas, but remember most of us are selling something (buy this supplement or that supplement or this right diet or that right diet). It’s even simpler than you or I understand. It doesn’t require a science degree or MD-degree or math degree. All it requires is doing something different than what you’ve been doing or been taught, and you’ll be amazed at the changes and shifts that happen in your life.
This is Dr. Rob sharing some thoughts and ideas. God Bless and enjoy!
