The more of a whole foods diet you eat – with an emphasis on whole grains, legumes, fresh vegetables and fruit – the healthier and happier you will be.
And you’ll be well on your way to living a Low Density Lifestyle. That’s because the foods listed above are lighter, less dense, easier to digest and eliminate, allow for a better energy circulation, and don’t cause inflammation to occur in the body.
You’ll notice that one of the food groups I didn’t mention above is meat. And when I say meat, I mean meat in all its forms – beef, pork, poultry and fish.
Now the reason I didn’t include the category of meat in my food listings above is not because I believe that to live a Low Density Lifestyle you have to be vegetarian or vegan. You can be a vegetarian/vegan and live a Low Density Lifestyle very easily.
Americans in particular eat way too much animal food. For most Americans, it is the staple food of their diet.
Eating this way is the quickest way to damaging your health and getting a one-way ticket to a High Density Lifestyle.
A high-meat based diet will lead to heart disease, cancer, colon problems, arthritis, and countless other chronic and degenerative ailments. There are no shortage of studies to reinforce this.
So what I’ll be doing over the next few weeks in this series is presenting the case against eating lots of meat, along with telling you many other things about the world of meat and non-meat eating.
Stick around because you’ll learn a thing or two. It’ll help you on your quest to live a Low Density Lifestyle.
And for full disclosure: I am not a vegetarian. I don’t eat much animal food, and I don’t eat beef or pork. I eat some poultry and some fish, but not a lot. I can go a week or a few weeks without eating any animal foods, then on other weeks I may eat animal foods once or twice in the week.
And the poultry I eat is not given antibiotics, steroids, or growth hormones; and the fish I eat is not farm-raised.
I’ll talk about this during this series.
I also don’t eat dairy food, but that’s best left for another series.
