Forget Gluten-Free...

and return to the traditional low carb, high fat diet of our ancestors.

Humans don't have the proper digestive system to properly digest grains. Only ruminants possess the multiple stomachs necessary to convert grains into fatty acids.

Humans don't need carbohydrates to survive. Look at the traditional Inuit diet of meat and fat. At the very most, we should be eating no more than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day, concentrating on those carbs that have the greatest nutrient density.

We should be getting the bulk of our nutrition from healthy fats, like coconut oil, butter, lard, ghee and olive oil.
