This is not a typical Doctor’s Farmacy podcast. It’s only 12 minutes long. As you will hear, he just got back from a short vacation and saw the headlines last week about eggs being bad and causing heart disease. Dr. Hyman debunks the research that was cited in the article that went viral.
Eat like your life depends on it!! And yes, include eggs!!
Breakfast is always an interesting conversation to have with people when talking about living a Primal lifestyle. One of the main reasons is due to how we’ve been programmed our whole lives about the importance of a “healthy” breakfast to start your day. Keeping in mind that the “healthy” breakfast consists of breakfast cereals, fruit juices, bagels, muffins, low-fat milk, low-fat yogurts, and maybe fruit.
The article below does a great job explaining breakfast in great detail. It provides you with a wide range of recommendations all based on your own personal lifestyle. This is one of the key elements about living a Primal Lifestyle, there is really no one set way of doing it. For me, I follow a similar pattern to what the author does for his routine with a compressed eating window. For the most part, during the week I will try to only eat from 12-8pm. This will then create a 16-hour fast, which promotes autophagy (cellular maintenance) and hedges against aging and neurodegeneration.
I start my day with coffee and heavy whipping cream. This is after I have had a couple tall glasses of water to rehydrate from the night’s sleep. Now that I have become more fat adapted and not carb dependent, this easily gets me to lunchtime. Over time, you will learn from your body what you need for fuel to get you through whatever it is you have going that day.
One last thing to point out is the word breakfast itself. It is derived from “breaking your fast” from the night before. It is typically associated with a morning meal. If you get to the point where you wake up and you are not hungry, then don’t eat. Wait until you are hungry and then eat. You will eventually find that you’re not getting hungry until later morning.
Enjoy the article!
I came across this simple guide to snacking and meal planning when you don’t have time, or you don’t wan to cook. Living a low-carb high fat diet is not that difficult. It just takes a little thought and preparation.
