For people who are interested in diets, I wrote an article (see below) that explains my choice of diet. For proving my point of view I included in the article links to other articles that have useful information about the real influence of the food we eat.
This article is the result of many years (started in 1985) of research and personal testing of many different diets and their influence on my physical, emotional and mental health. A simple, 100% raw meat and raw fish and zero carb (MFZC) diet was eventually found. I have been testing it from April 2016 to the present time (more than 2.5 years) and it has proven to have positive effects on my overall health. I have found this diet is definitely better than other diets I tested.
I hope this article can be useful for many people who have any health problems and feel that their diet is not right for them. I decided to publish the article on some social networking websites, groups and forums for educational and informational purposes. I appreciate any comments, remarks and constructive criticism of the article.
WAY TO LIVE WITHOUT DISEASES
Why people become sick
Why do initially perfect designed humans have (or start to have during aging) so many diseases? Why do people have more significantly visible aging than wild animals?
The answer lies in the food we have been eating for the last thousands years until modern times. This is especially true with the foods we eat today. These foods do help us to survive but they have some short or/and long term negative side effects. You can read more about these effects in many articles (refer to the links below). Unfortunately, we really are what we eat.
If you want to help yourself to cure your own diseases and live without diseases, normalize weight, be healthy, feel alive, have clear mind, better memory, concentration and better cognitive abilities during your lifetime including old age, you should consider a simple diet of only raw fatty meat, raw fatty fish (wild sea fish is preferable), pure water and nothing else.
Abilities of zero carb (ZC) diets
This healing diet is one of the ZC diets. These diets already have helped many people to cure many diseases including “incurable” ones ( https://zerocarbzen.com/, http://meatheals.com/2018/02/04/charlene-andersen/, http://www.zerocarbhealth.com/ ). According to the amount and impressive diversity of diseases and allergies cured by these diets, plant food actually, at least slowly damages and destroys our bodies and brains (https://www.reddit.com/r/zerocarb/wiki/plants , https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/vegetarianism-and-plant-foods/plants-bite-back/).
We may consume plant food all our lives but it will not be a life without diseases and having the highest, genetically possible performance of our physical, emotional and mental functions, especially in old age. We are definitely not herbivores or apes and thousands years of evolution did not adapt us to plant food completely (http://dietshack.weebly.com/vegetarians-have-smaller-brains.html, https://www.maxim.com/news/meat-eaters-are-healthier-says-science-2017-11 https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2862197/Why-vegetarian-really-just-phase-84-eating-meat-just-three-months.html?ito=amp_twitter_share-top).
The ZC diets have different variations and may include eggs and dairy products as well. Most people who follow these diets prefer to cook their food for at least a short time. But even the short time heating destroys natural enzymes and creates many irreversible chemical reactions in the food. It decreases nutritional value and healing power of the ZC diets. Moreover the cooked foods can have deep negative influence on physical, emotional and mental health (just for example read about the influence on rats: http://www.naturalnews.com/023401_rats_foods_health.html ).
I’ve tested and continue to this day to use only raw meat, raw fish and zero carb(plant) diet (MFZC).
From November 2007 to April 2016, before this diet, I have tested only 100% raw food (high or low carb, primal, paleo, etc.) diets. Eventually I have come to the conclusion that the MFZC diet is the best.
Advantages of MFZC diet and pure water
1. After adaptation you will not need or want any other food.
2. Meat (beef is one of the best) has the most full, optimally balanced and the most compatible to our needs set of nutrients.
3. Sea fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, herring, etc.) has vital fatty acids including Omega 3
and essential trace elements that terrestrial meat does not have enough of at the present times. On a only meat diet you do not have enough of at least part of the essential trace elements – Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Mo, Se, I. Now animals (and people too) eat plants (grasses, grains, etc.) that grew up on depleted soils having a lack of these trace elements. So plants and meat also have a lack of the trace elements. The Ocean has an abundance of all trace elements. So sea fish have a relatively high level, more than terrestrial meat. (http://www.jdrntruhs.org/article.asp?issn=2277-8632;year=2015;volume=4;issue=2;spage=75;epage=85;aulast=Prashanth).
For example, if you do not have enough of the trace element iodine (I), you can get goitre, the endocrine disease. Now in many countries, in many places soil, plants and animal products have a lack of iodine and people are compelled to use not healthy non organic supplements. In some countries many people had goitre in past centuries.
The benefits of adding seafood products to the diet has been known for a long time. For example, W. Price wrote about Indians living in the highlands of Peru: “It was, accordingly, a matter of great interest to discover that these Indians used regularly dried fish eggs from the sea. Commerce in these dried foods is carried on today as it no doubt has been for centuries. When I inquired of them why they used this material they explained that it was necessary to maintain the fertility of their women. I was informed also that every exchange depot and market carried these dried fish eggs so that they were always available” (Chapter 15, http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks02/0200251h.html).
5. During the time you are on this diet your diseases from chronic cold, flu, obesity to degenerative diseases related to aging will be cured gradually.
Disadvantages of MFZC diet
1. Possible bad tolerance to some types of meat or fish.
2. Possible long (up to several months) period of adaptation to this diet.
3. Possible social problems with relatives and friends.
Adding other food to MFZC diet
Unfortunately any other animal and especially plant foods may not be so compatible, complete and proportional to the needs of our body. Also, they may have more negative side effects, such as changes in hormonal activity and changes in adsorption of vitamins, minerals, microelements, etc. (A part of the links given here have some proof of it).
People may try to add other food products to meat and fish but it can be more complicated than it seems initially. Always there is a common mistake to think that all food products are chock-full of useful vitamins, minerals, etc. In reality they are not because every food product is the whole or part of a former living plant or animal. It means that the product can contain thousands of different chemically active substances. Some of them are useful, some are useless or even harmful.
In response, the human body would need to create thousands of different chemical reactions to digest, keep or reject these substances in order to maintain the life and diverse functionality of the body and brain. This is huge and energy consuming work for the body. This is especially true if you eat different food products together at the same time because the product’s substances interact with each other and create new different by-products.
Therefore the best way to help your body is to choose a few basic raw animal food products that contain compatible and proportional set of nutrients according to the needs of the body. Also it is better to eat the products at a different time. Your body and microflora will not have a hard time on how to react, assimilate new or changing products or by-products every time you eat. You may continue to eat the chosen products for a long time and live without diseases and health problems.
Actually, the more simple, full-fledged and non-changing diet is always better (“Food is fuel, not entertainment.”). Moreover for prevention and cure for many (maybe most) existing diseases it is more important what you do not eat and drink than what you eat and drink (A part of the links given here have some proof of it).
Additional information about MFZC diet
During the past thousands of years the only possible and accessible source of food for every season has been raw meat and/ог raw fish. Actually, any other food (plants, eggs, milk etc.) could not have been readily available every season and due to extremely dry, cold or hot weather conditions. It does not mean that our ancestors only ate meat and fish. They ate everything that could help them to survive and kill their hunger. But raw meat and/or raw fish diet was always there to help them to survive and fulfill their nutritional needs. In many areas, during a part of few seasons, meat and/or fish were the only food they could have.
Some thoughts about fire and cooking – fire socialized our ancestors, warmed them, gave them light at nights, saved them from predators, helped them to think more and evolve. Also, there were positive events of our ancestors when they started to cook plants because many plants have high toxicity or/and are not eatable raw. Cooking food has helped people to survive by allowing them to keep food for a longer time and have fewer dangerous journeys outside of safe places or shelters. Moreover even now in many countries cooking helps people to be less contaminated by dangerous diseases. (The main cause of these diseases is having large amounts of collected toxins inside the body due to eating of improper food (see Article 5) and low standards of hygiene.)
Negative events happened where the ancestors have started to have more health problems and diseases related to food especially in old age and more parasites thriving in cooked food. Their taste buds were suppressed, changed and started to feel the taste of raw or cooked food differently. Cooking has changed natural digestion and given it many negative effects (https://www.bmj.com/content/1/6170/1049?fbclid=IwAR2jKNwf_25ofP157xK5btCSHBDV0P6IUHvYvbPpLQevWTNcThUIyCyMsyU , http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0061252).
Cooked food didn’t help evolution of the brain. For an example of ‘evolution’ and the influence of cooked food you can read in THE POTTENGER EXPERIMENTS https://rawdiets.wordpress.com/the-pottenger-experiments/, (according to most events during the dark and cruel history of human kind there are not any reasons to think humans react better than animals on cooked food). Also some information is in “Human Brain Expansion during Evolution Is Independent of Fire Control and Cooking” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4842772/.
Raw meat and raw fish are well recognized (genetically), accepted and digested in our body. If you are afraid of parasite contamination, you may eat defrosted meat and fish (naturally parasites prefer to stay and live inside people who eat cooked and processed food). More information is here: https://rawdiets.wordpress.com/parasites-do-not-like-raw-food/
Meat and fish should be served as separate dishes and at different times of the day. Give at least 2-3 hours between the dishes. You may drink as much water as you want but do not drink during eating and drink after 2-3 hours of eating food.
Eating this diet can give you complete satisfaction (after a period of some changes in your intestinal microflora) and will have the most positive influence on your mental, emotional and physical health. If you had any special (vegetarian, vegan, low carb, cooked zero plant, etc.) diets before, you will feel and understand the big differences between the diets more clearly.
Great example of how strong food can influence
From PRENATAL NUTRITIONAL DEFORMITIES AND
…One of the most important contributions in this field has been made by Professor Fred Hale, of the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, at College Station, Texas. He has shown that many physical deformities are readily produced by curtailing the amount of vitamin A in the ration of pigs. He produced fifty-nine pigs that were born blind, every pig in each of six litters-where the mothers were deprived of vitamin A for several months before mating and for thirty days thereafter. In pigs, the eyeballs are formed in the first thirty days…
…One of the very important results of Professor Hale’s investigations has been the production of pigs with normal eyes, born to parents both of whom had no eyeballs due to lack of vitamin A in their mother’s diet. The problem clearly was not heredity…
…Professor Hale reports that in April, 1935, a litter of seven pigs were born blind at McGlean, Texas. Matings were made between blind pigs. These were fed rations containing ample vitamin A, and normal pigs with normal eyeballs were produced. Even the mating of a blind son with his mother who had produced him when on deficient diet, produced only normal pigs when both had ample vitamin A. He states, “If an hereditary factor had been the cause of this congenital blindness, these matings would have produced some blind pigs, even if vitamin A were present in the ration.” … (Chapter 18, http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks02/0200251h.html)
Some information about influence of other kinds of food, modern scientific papers and traditions
Links to the articles below direct you to a part of information existing on the considered topics now. You can teach yourself by reading these articles:
a) Read THE POTTENGER EXPERIMENTS part from:
http://www.drbass.com/freedownload/files/drbassrecov.pdf THE POTTENGER EXPERIMENTS are an example of huge differences between cooked/ processed foods and raw foods for cats. Unfortunately, influence of these differences for people can be even worse than for cats. People have more different diseases, especially in old age and more negative deviations in their personal and social behaviour. Some additional information about the influence of cooked or processed foods is here: https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/146/8/1506/4584673, http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks02/0200251h.html

2. Why it’s better to not eat grains, beans, nuts and seeds:
3. Why it’s better to not eat fruits:
4. Why it’s better to not eat fiber:
5. Why it’s better to not eat carbohydrates:
6. Why it’s better to not eat dairy products: http://www.diagnosisdiet.com/food/dairy/ https://zeroaday.wordpress.com/2018/07/02/dairy-dairy-quite-contrary/ http://www.onegreenplanet.org/natural-health/how-dairy-affects-your-hormones/?fbclid=IwAR1uGTa7bdV_e3sN0U1wFa2MedS5AnHi9EBg8Dcd347YtG2bZKQWbMrceIM
c) What to expect while adapting to a Zero Carb (Zero Plant) diet?
d) Why raw meat is the best food:
e) WHY IT’S BETTER TO NOT TRUST MODERN SCIENTIFIC PAPERS: https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-08-09-99-of-modern-scientific-papers-are-nothing-more-than-politically-motivated-pseudoscience-warns-science pioneer.html, http://fakescience.news/, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1122833/. Also, unfortunately, many scientists and doctors who write the papers are not always quite healthy due to their improper diet and/or their favorite using of medicines or supplements. Health includes mental health too because physical, emotional and mental conditions and functions depend on each other and go together. The scientists and doctors when they have own health problems, can choose direction of research, conduct experiments or explain the results not always correctly.
f) Why it’s better to not trust old traditions of eating: These traditions were often created for surviving during periods of lack of food, they used just available kinds of food for surviving and didn’t care about long term influence of chosen food on human health. Also, unfortunately, many people who created the traditions were not quite healthy due to their improper food.
Also read the comments in these articles, they are useful as well.
If you will have any questions, feel free to write and ask.
Additional and useful information you can get from different paleo, zero plant, raw diet groups and forums on the internet. Links to some of them are below:
In conclusion try to think and understand a simple thought: – making experiments (especially long term) with food you eat, liquid you drink or air you inhale can be dangerous and harmful if they are not species-appropriate and genetically proper for humans. Gradually your health, mind and the part of you that you think is your personality will be changed or even destroyed (see an example in Raw Foods vs. Cooked Foods – The Great American Rat Experiment). Unfortunately, according to the amount of different diseases and premature aging of most people, plant or/and cooked food are not species-appropriate and genetically proper for us.
