Preserving Health: The Surprising Truth About Our Food and Our Health by Dr. Colin Campbell
Preserving Health was written by the great Dr. T Colin Campbell. A professor at Cornell University, he is perhaps best known for his book The China Study. But his new book, Preserving Health: The Surprising Truth About Our Food and Our Health is a must read for anyone concerned about the future of our health.
Consuming what we are eating today is having very little effect on our bodies. Unless we change our diets in some way, we will continue to age and to live with health problems. We will have less energy and muscle mass, we will have more disease, and our immune systems will not be as strong as they once were. Dr. Campbell attributes this to the fact that the foods we eat are getting worse and are no longer the healthy foods that they once were.
In his book, Dr. Campbell advocates for eating more plant-based foods that are not only nutritious, but have very few or no preservatives resistant vegetables, like green beans, brussel sprouts, cucumbers, carrots, and onions. He goes into detail about the negative consequences of our diets and their possible long term effects. Some of the health problems he discusses include obesity, heart disease, hypertension, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, and cancer. I couldn’t agree more with the author.
Dr. Campbell writes about the benefits of eating whole grains and more healthful fats in his book. He states that whole grains are a vital part of a balanced diet. He recommends eating whole grain breads, cereals, and pastas because they are full of nutrition, and they are low in carbohydrates and sodium. A diet high in whole grains will help to lower cholesterol and will help to increase the amount of good bacteria in the digestive system. Whole grains also help the body to use the carbohydrates properly and prevent the problem of glucose being stored as fat.
Dr. Campbell’s book is filled with healthy fats. He recommends eating plenty of fish, avocados, olive oil, nuts, seeds, and oils. He also recommends eating a diet rich in lean meat and eggs. The healthy fats in these foods to make them more filling, and therefore make the food taste better.
He states that the best way to lose weight is to eat a healthy diet and follow a healthy weight loss plan. He argues that if you want to lose weight and stay healthy, a moderate weight loss plan should be followed.
He advocates that people should eat lean meats and cheeses, fish, and poultry. He recommends eating low fat dairy products, and fish. While eating raw nuts and seeds, eggs, and meat is healthy, he also recommends cooking them well in butter or oil, so that they are easy to digest.
Dr. Campbell encourages people to eat lots of organic fruits and vegetables, and organic whole grains and nuts, because they contain antioxidants and other nutrients that can help maintain good health. He believes that eating these foods will make it easier for the body to use the healthy fats and the essential nutrients that these foods contain.
The diet, which he calls the “Diet Fix” is a unique one, but Dr. Campbell recommends it. It is a diet consisting of organic foods. It does not restrict one person from eating the same foods as everyone else or require that everyone eat the same kinds of foods, because some foods are better or healthier than others.
You will find plenty of natural sugars in fruits and vegetables. However, Dr. Campbell says that to maintain good health, the body needs to have natural foods that are high in protein and low in fats. There is an important vitamin deficiency in the United States, and Dr. Campbell believes that if you eat high amounts of protein and low fat organic foods, this can provide the body with all the vitamins and minerals it needs.
He also advocates that you take in the foods that you are eating and avoid the foods that are causing your body harm. For example, he suggests that you eat organic eggs rather than conventional eggs or those that come from chickens treated with antibiotics. steroids or hormones.
