10 Reasons Why Most Diets Don’t Solve Chronic Health Problems

Chances are, you’ve tried a few diets. Whether it is keto, paleo, carnivore, or some other ill-conceived plan, they rarely help people heal chronic disease conditions in a fundamentally and sustainable way.

That’s because they miss the mark in nearly every way, by focussing on your desires for a quick fix, rather than a permanent solution.

Here’s 10 Reasons Most Diet Don’t Make the Cut

1) They’re developed by “science” – I’m not anti-science, but the only reason it has been used for diets is to create a market for plans that short circuit the natural process of weight loss, manipulate systems in an unnatural way, or to eliminate triggers that create symptoms. As a result chronic disease is rarely solved.

2) They’re obsessed with calories – While calorie counting can have a desired effect with respect to weight loss, it does little to address the source of the issue and is rarely sustainable. For those two reasons alone, calorie counting is a fool’s game.

3) They’re not sustainable – How long can you count calories, remove certain food groups altogether, and measure and weigh every meal? I think you know the answer. Not only that, these actions do little to address your health issue.

4) They don’t address proper hydration – Drinking 8-12 glasses of water a day is not the best answer to your hydration needs. Focusing on highly hydrating foods (fruits and vegetables) and mitigating the dehydrating ones (flours, meat, coffee, alcohol, etc) will hydrate your body much more efficiently at the cellular level.

5) They miss the mark on anti-microbials – Infections are a big reason for chronic disease, and very few diets focus on the foods and herbs that help eliminate them.

5) They ignore food combinations – How you put food together, matters. Throwing everything into your blender or on your salad is not necessarily the best route. To fix chronic disease, you must ensure that food is efficiently digested, which means understanding how foods assimilate inside your digestive tract, when paired together.

6) They don’t consider digestibility – You can eat all the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, but if you don’t…
