Protein Diet – The Do’s and Dont’s

There is a lot of misinformation about the protein diet out there – so this article was written to clarify what the diet is, what the benefits of a protein diet are, medically and cosmetically; as well as how to use the protein diet for your health.

The protein diet is so simple, that people end up getting confused if that is what the protein diet is – it literally is eating only lean fat free lean meats with beef at the top priority, combined with any leafy green (spinach, kale and so on).

Okay, let me do this again – for clarity’s sake.

What is the Protein Diet?

It consists of the following foods to be eaten (nothing else):

  • Beef (fat free as possible) – This is a must, and should not be omitted from the diet, as the diet will fail otherwise.
  • Lamb (fat free parts only)
  • Chicken (no skin part)
  • White Fish
  • Combined with all types of leafy greens (not fruits, not other vegetables)
  • Garlic and light amount of salt is okay for marinating

What does the Protein Diet help with?

The protein diet helps with a huge range of conditions such as the following below, but not limited to it:

  • Hormone Imbalance (men and women)
  • Sugar Addiction
  • Insulin and Diabetes
  • Hair Growth
  • Skin Disorders
  • Menstrual cycle problems
  • Heart Valve Issues
  • Nutritional Absorption Issues
  • Cosmetic Improvement (Looking younger)

Rules of the Protein Diet

The protein diet is a tough diet to be on – and if you have any kind of sugar addiction, it will get rid of it within 7 days of being on the diet.

The diet should be followed for as long as you have the condition you are working to resolve – as this will help at a cellular level and provide the building blocks needed for recovery.

In today’s time of junk food and various ingredients used in processed foods, we have way too many foods with hidden ingredients which could be affecting our health – this diet is one way to really detox from it – it isn’t for the faint hearted.

Is the Protein diet the same or similar to the Paleo Diet?

This is often something that people ask about – and yes, whilst it is similar, it has a different purpose to the Paleo diet – the protein diet is meant to be set for a certain amount of time, and then you should be able to go back to your eating various  kinds of foods, even sugar to a small extent – the Protein diet is a medical diet, not a lifestyle like the Paleo diet.

 

Food for Younger Skin – Age Reversal (A Study)

food for younger skin

 

It is well known how food and diet can have a direct effect on how your skin looks and feels – not only that, but how youthful you look overall.

It is possible to maintain and have youthful looks even at a old age – but you need to have dedication and discipline to do so, and it will also reward you with good health too.

If you haven’t been following our blog posts in the past few years, then you should know we have talked about calorie restriction as a method of controlling the aging process.  In Eastern medicine, it is called dampness control, which means you control the rich foods you eat, such as cakes, chocolates and very densely sugary foods.

People often look for food for younger skin, or foods that will help maintain their skin youthfulness – but this is not as simple to explain – you first must watch your calories as a lifestyle – doing too much restriction will also cause aging, as you do need nutrition in your body (obviously) – but you need good quality dense nutrients rather than empty calorie noodles.

In Eastern Medicine, we know that dampness (eating too much) is a major cause of the speed of aging most people in the modern age go through – so the first step in reducing the aging process is reducing calories and increasing nutrient density.

The second step is looking for foods that will work for reducing dampness – and this is very misunderstood in Chinese Medicine, as not all herbs can do this and you cannot just Google what foods do this – we are fortunate enough to have spoken and interviewed a Daoist Medical Doctor, which happen to knew all too well on the best food you can take to reduce and stop dampness.

 

Looking younger by 10 Years with just 2 Methods

 

Peach Seed: This is one of the few and rarely understood herbs in the Chinese herbal book which few understand. Of course it isn’t a herb, but a seed – but in Chinese herbology, a lot of weird things are inside the herbal books, which are parts of animals, and end up being referred to as herbs.

peach seed and youthful looks

Peach seed can be purchased anywhere online – and it is the inside part (inside the hard shell) that is what you want – it is very bitter to taste, so you would want to take water with it and swallow a teaspoon 2-3 times a day after a meal – this will not only help bowel movement, but also detox the body, prevent cancer, break down cysts, but also give you that beautiful youthful appearance that you are looking for.

Taking a food such as peach seed is not enough – you also need to take care of your body by movement – exercise – on a daily basis – the body is simply not designed to stay still for longer than 20 minutes at a time – yes, those people working those long office jobs, you are aging yourself faster than you need to – but by working out everyday, even a little, can do wonders for your health, as well as your skin and youthful looks.

 

 

Recover from Exhaustion in just one meal

recover from exhuastion foods

 

The fastest way to restore your tiredness using food, is by the legendary (but not so commonly known) as the chicken ginseng and astragalus soup – there are many versions of it, but this specific version is the one that is known for restoring your vitality (you basically feel great after eating), especially if you have been overworking and haven’t been eating the healthiest of foods (nutritionally dense foods) – the coolest thing about it is, its very easy to cook – hard to go wrong in this.

It is a Korean food – so going to this recipe will help you make it in the best way possible – but you need to add one ingredient to make this work more effectively (which the recipe does not talk about) – and it is called Huang Qi, and can be found in asian stores all over the world (and it’s cheap) – more details about this herb located here.

The important ingredients are ginseng (can be in dry form), Jujube berry (2 of them per baby chicken), Huang Qi and the fact that in needs a very low heat, for a long time – you cook it for several hours, even the chicken bone is soft enough to eat!

Obviously there are many types of food out there that can help someone recover from exhaustion – the reason I post about this specific one, as this is as much a medicine as it is a food, and from my experience, it is one of the best foods you can regularly eat.

Treating Hypoglycemia using Natural Methods

low blood sugar

Treating Low blood sugar or otherwise called Hypoglycemia is often misunderstood by many, but can lead to a very dull and difficult life style, even though most cases are not that serious, it really does make a person feel weak and drained all the time. This is due to the fact that the body is converting anything you eat, directly to fat, and hardly using any for energy – so you are starving, even though you are eating.

This condition arises because of abuse of eating too many carbs, sugar and fat – this causes imbalance of insulin. This itself is not diabetes, but can become diabetes if not treated correctly. The good news is that this treatable, and curable – but not the way most websites and natural websites talk about – they usually say to eat carbs regularly – but this does not fix it – only reduces some symptoms – but as soon as eating is restored to normal levels, you start suffering from the same side effects.

The way to treat someone suffering from this, is by going on a strict protein diet for a certain period of time – this means, eating lean meat (beef, white fish, chicken, lamb) combined with spinach – several times a day, in small amounts. Ideally you want to do this for at least 7 days, very strictly – and then adjust slightly so you are better able to handle the diet long term.

I have seen people improve from this, even by eating 95% protein diet – where they add some sauce to the meat, and obviously some meats still have 1% fat in it – but the more severe the condition, the harder it is to do this diet, so mental strength is required when doing this diet – that said, you can see a big difference in just 7 days of doing this diet (on how it affects you and your health).

To summarize here:

– Eat 10 times a day

– lean meats, and some steamed spinach (at least 7 days)

– Drink plenty of water – Make yourself busy, so you do not think of other foods that you are addicted to

– Stopping a sugar addiction (sugar defined as fats, sugar, natural sugar and carbs) is often compared to stopping a drug addiction, so understand that each hour that you do this, you are more powerful and in control of your body and your intentions.
