Well, the title might be a bit misleading, but I can get you close enough!
There are 4 steps that every single person can take right now to have a fruitful and meaningful life.
It is all about antiaging, quality of life, and setting an example for others to follow (particularly your friends and family).
Step 1 For Immortality- Get Active
Stop sitting around and watching the world pass you by. Everyone is so inundated with sitting behind a screen that they forget there is a whole world out there to explore.
Google Maps can only do so much to show you nature.
We are social beings and need to get out and feel the dirt between our toes.
Feel the sun beat on our skin. Feel the pain of a scrape or cut from going on a bike ride and falling or hiking up a mountain.
I am not asking you to go out and run a marathon because I would be setting you up for failure. I want success and I want you to do something you enjoy doing.
If running doesn’t bring you unfounded happiness, then for God’s sake don’t do it.
Our ancestors hunted in packs. We don’t have to do our physical activity in a solitary fashion- unless you enjoy that.
Bottom line- we need to get off our couches, chairs, or lazy boys and allow the squish that has developed from being sedentary to harden and eventually dissipate.
There is such a thing as a caloric expenditure. Just imagine your body is a bank.
You keep on making deposits to the bank (in this case food into your pie hole), but there are no withdrawals. The bank, in this case- your body, would plump up and get squishy.
That may be crude, but the idea is the same. We need to match our caloric intake with activity to offset the excess amount consumed.
Step 2 For Immortality- Stop Eating Seed Oils
Seed oils are the Devil’s work. Some examples of seed oils include; Sunflower oil, soy oil, canola oil, vegetable oil, soybean oil, corn oil, rapeseed oil, sesame oil, peanut oil, palm oil.
By no means is that list all-inclusive, but it should give you a pretty good idea of what to watch out for.
Those bad boys get exposed to a lot of oxidative stress during the oiling process.
The process of oxidation creates unstable chemicals that can degrade and cause harmful compounds. Those compounds create free radicals in our body and can have a SIGNIFICANT impact on our cholesterol, heart health, and insulin secretion.
They ALL play a dramatic effect in the current state of our health since the industrial age took place.
For the longest time, our own FDA encouraged the use of seed oils as a healthier alternative, without much in the value of science.
They were wrong in their recommendations and have lied to the general public for years on end. Unfortunately, it is so ingrained in our society that it is a difficult paradigm to shift- especially with how deep BIG Food and BIG Pharma’s pockets run.
I 100% guarantee that seed oils are the root of all that’s evil and the primary cause of ALL chronic disease processes like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis, erectile dysfunction, cancer, kidney disease, fatty liver, asthma, Alzheimer’s, dementia, depression, etc.
The oils I would primarily focus on would be coconut, olive, and avocado, in that order. Keep in mind, if you can get around using any, that would be ideal.
Ghee or tallow is a great alternative product to cook with and has a much better nutritional profile. Those are also closer to nature and don’t go through much of an industrialization process.
From a longevity aspect, I would focus on those two. They are things our ancestors used to use and they did not have metabolic disease.
If you are going to use the argument that our ancestors didn’t live as long- well you are stupid.
Granted, they didn’t have medicine to help with acute infections. If they survived that, they would simply die of old age and NOT cardiovascular or metabolic diseases at an early age.
Look at this simple mathematical equation- The average age of individuals is 80, and infant mortality is higher.
That puts us at an average lifespan of about 40 years old. That does not support that we died younger or did not live until 80. It is a law of averages.
Infant mortality was significantly higher back then due to the lack of care or knowledge that we have now.
That number has allowed our average age to now actually be in the 80s after significant medical and technological advances.
Infant mortality has gone down and life span has gone up as a result. Don’t be fooled by that though. It should be significantly higher because we have gotten better at saving children’s lives, but horrible at keeping adults healthy.
Step 3 For Immortality- Don’t Eat Gluten
Gluten is an industrial grain that has been HEAVILY modified since its inception. Despite that, it is most often genetically modified and littered with pesticides.
We know, molecularly, that gluten breaks down into gliadin and fructan. Our bodies, however, don’t recognize the molecules and it sends an immune systems response that brings inflammation.
So if we are eating highly processed carbohydrates, which is our standard American diet, we are in a constant state of inflammation. This is where autoimmunity disease stems from and other chronic diseases because our bodies become fatigued from fighting 24/7.
Gluten is in EVERYTHING that is processed. Potato chips, cookies, shampoos, soaps, candy, bread, pasta, condiments, some juices, etc.
It acts as a filler and helps make products moist and stick together.
Unfortunately, it literally ransacks our intestines and creates a whole slew of deleterious effects on almost every single bodily system.
From diarrhea to Hashimotos to Alzheimer’s… gluten has its grubby little hands in every one of those.
Dr. Kellogg, from Kellogg brand cereal, was a Seventh Day Adventist who did not believe in sexuality. He wanted to create a product that would appeal to the masses with taste but had a significant impact on their metabolic system to make us hedonically deactivated beings.
He, begrudgingly, succeeded in making his name a household product that millions of Americans still continue to use to get a “health” start to their day.
Grains are not nutritional. The FDA suggests a large portion of our diet should be filled with whole grains.
Do you see how religiously and politically motivated the “recommendations” are yet?
If that isn’t making you shiver, it should.
People need to stop thinking that the FDA, or government for that matter, has anyone’s best interest in mind.
We are all just a number and insignificant in the eyes of the “elite.”
Stop believing the “bad science” and start asking more questions.
Remember when your parents used to say that if you did not finish your meal there are starving children in third world countries who would love to eat the food you have?
When was the last time you heard that statement?
It is because it is not a thing anymore. Thanks to GMOs we are quite literally solved the world’s hunger problems.
Actually, we have made it worse because all those empty calories we consume leave us devoid of nutrients and wanting to consume more.
So, really it is making the BIG Food companies richer than God because people just keep eating and eating and eating and eating.
We used to live in food scarcity- now we live in food abundance and are dying a slow death as a result.
Step 4 For Immortality- Stop Eating Soy/Corn Products
I really don’t have to go into a big rant with this one because it really follows suit with the gluten rant.
It is a heavily processed molecule that is super inflammatory to our bodies.
Plain and simple.
Tons of pesticides, has an estrogenic effect (converts to estrogen in our body) and are laden with GMO.
Not to mention the horrible agricultural process that exponentially disrupts several fragile ecosystems to create Impossible Foods.
Look at the next food product you consume and I will place money on it that is contains soy.
That stupid thing is in everything, just like gluten. It is a filler and makes things more palatable.
We are slowly turning into a society that is going to be androgenous, squishy, and incapable of wiping our own butts.
Sorry for the mental image, but it is so true and everyone is turning their cheek to SCIENCE!
I can certainly assume that 95% of the people reading this article will not believe me. It is because this pseudoscience has been generations in the making and people think I am accusing their family members of lies.
That is simply not true and irrational. Things change and so does science.
For years, science has repeatedly demonstrated that steak does not cause colon cancer. It has proven that more protein consumption does not cause kidney damage. It has proven that sugars cause cancers. It has proven saturated fats are heart-healthy.
It is asinine to think the foods our ancestors ate and thrived off of kills us.
People, we need to take a step back and realize we are being fed a facade.
Take charge of your life and look at the facts instead of hearsay. Understand the motives behind recommendations from the government. Look at reputable resources that aren’t being funded by BIG Food or BIG Pharma.
Let’s keep this momentum going and expose those companies for what they are- serial killers.
Do you really think the millions, upon billions, of dollars that have been donated to cancer research and we STILL don’t have a cure yet?
I have a cure- stop eating crappy foods and treat your body like the temple it is. Period.
That advice is free.
Be strong. Be brave.
