Intermittent fasting, Ketogenic, Paleo, Whole 30, Functional Medicine, Bulletproof, Wild diet, Caveman Diet, leaky gut, inflammation, all are nice buzzwords of different spheres of belief that have one thing in common: Food is medicine, and we in the west has been poisoning ourselves slowly for the last 50 years.

I have done a lot of the work for you and will outline my own hybrid approach, which takes the best of all theories into a lifestyle that works for me.
I have read over 25 of the best health books out there, countless research studies, and hundreds of hours of podcasts from top experts in the ketogenic, paleo, whole foods fields.
This blog will contain my own healthcare story, the biology behind weight gain, why it matters what kind of food you eat, why the quality of food you eat matters, and why mind body health is so much more important than exercise.

There is no such thing as calories in calories out. The laws of thermodynamics explain how energy works on the molecular level, but not at the level of an organism with several energy pathways. How does it decide which pathway to use? Burn this food, store that one as fat, let this one flow through in the feces and urine. Why do some people eat exactly the same thing but one of them gets fat and the other doesn't? The laws of thermodynamics don't apply here.
