The Myth of the Super-Human : Kev’s Healthy Bites

We tend to think that super-dosing on a certain nutrient will give us super-human powers.

And while you may be able to slightly increase the detoxification of your liver with some burdock root tincture, you’d need an extra liver, more blood, a bigger heart and enough room to fit all of this additional flesh in your existing frame — just — to get a better result.

Obviously, this was (and still is) a logistical nightmare for whoever (or whatever) created us.

So to make it easy, we were built for optimal, race-car-like maneuvering from the beginning. Everything we needed was already in place. We were then given high octane fuel that contained the exact formula to reach the pinnacle of peak performance. Our DNA was programmed to take what it needed from these items and discard the rest, just in case the body ever became overloaded.

You might be surprised, but this fuel wasn’t called “Centrum” or even “Vitamin C.” There wasn’t an ORAC scale to measure its potency.

The fuel was simply called “food” and was quite perfect in its construction.

So perfect, that you didn’t even need to add the adjectives “whole” or “real” before it.

Even more perfect, that you didn’t need to know what is was made of for it to work.

If you wanted to be a super-human, all you needed to do was eat some broccoli and its isothiocyanates would turn on enzymes that can ward off the bad guys (cancer), its vitamin C would make you immune to their kryptonite (boost your immunity), and its calcium would strengthen your frame to withstand their blows (increase bone density.)

All this and so much more, none of which you have to worry about, so you can focus on what superheroes do best.

Change the world.

Your Question of the day: What is your favorite, super-human whole food?

Live Awesome!

Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog RenegadeHealth.com — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    Awesome Kev! Love it…keep it up!

  2. Wes says:

    Sorry…missed the question..that was in response to how I liked the new format! As to my favorite super human whole food…I love spinach! Love it in smoothies, salads, you name it!

  3. Melissa says:

    ok kevin i can see your pt. but it does behoove one to doing the research on why more B6/B12, etc. for vegans & women with PMS>

    not to mention the claims of orthomolecular medicine about mega dosing on B3 for everything from skin disorders to anxiety issues. A good supplement, like a good ‘mate’ is very difficult to find, but their definitely are a FEW.

    If some of us don’t have an expensive juice at home or near office, you may really still want that B vitamin supplement – try a less pharmecutically rendered brand than ‘centrum’! After all, that coffee culture 1 a day is still with us. how many people do their business meetings muching a healthy apple when everybody else has adorned the table with their lattes?

    Keep the juices rollin’ kevin!!
    Cheers on your ‘rant-work’!!

    You are sooo…right !!! Sooo… damm right !
    But with all the Monsantos in the world and
    all our (humans) destructives ways… we have
    to keep reading labels after label and hope and pray
    that those we don’t know about, those little signs before all the produce sontent
    in our supermarkets or meat for us to know where they come from, are worth to be read…!
    Warm regards, Haydee

    I love it! Yes, we just need to eat real unprocessed food in the perfect package it came in from the earth, like vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds etc.

  6. sharon says:

    Interesting thought…that we were designed to just eat food.

    The science-fiction movies of the past seemed to predict that we would just take a pill for sustenance instead of eating. And it seems like some of the health gurus these days are heading that direction.

    I am following right along in believing that I can live off of superfoods like goji, chia, medicinal mushrooms, some protein powder, green powders, chlorella, and lots of supplements. Fruits and vegetables get thrown in there for interest and maybe some calories, but the real superstars for health are the superfoods.

    hummmm.

  8. Brian says:

    Kevin, I really appreciate your message today. I think the concept of a balanced approach to all things in our life is sometimes lost on us.
    I am reminded of a visualization suggested to me many years ago by a very astute coach. He always likened us to a spinning top. Too much weight applied to one side or another would make the top unstable.
    Your Principle #3 in “High Raw” speaks very well to listening to your body and keeping that balance intact.

  9. Rhonda says:

    I like today’s format. It it thought provoking, short and sweet. I think we all must agree to the fact that we are meant to eat quality foods. I believe a plant-based diet makes sense as it is what we put in powders and pills to consume more of the nutrients that are in the plant foods. It is not often that you see animal foods in powders and supplements, because they are the middle guys that consume some nutrients (if they are lucky, because the majority of them are fed soy and corn grains which would not be their typical diet which would be greens).

    Most of us do not salivate when we see road kill or a bird fly by, these simple facts are why I do believe we are meant to get our nutrients from plants foods.

    I have been reading a new book called “Main Street Vegan” by Victoria Moran. Great read, she eloquently shares stories and facts along with some wonderful recipes. Our local Vegetarian Society (mainly vegans) will be discussing the book at our next potluck which is a great way to talk with people who have similar beliefs and interests in this lifestyle.

  10. Tamara says:

    Hi Kevin,
    I agree with you on this…. In part. Yes, our bodies are meant to eat food. But we’re we ‘designed’ as such? No. Over the course of millions of years, or recently closer to the human form, hundreds of thousands a of years, we have EVOLVED. A gradual process that as mentioned, takes a LOOONG time. I know you use the word ‘designed’ simply as a functional term, however it is the fact of evolution which bring me to the following things to point out, about why, just maybe, food might not be enough.
    Humans have evolved with far different lifestyles to what most of us live today. Stress was where is our next meal coming from, how will we shelter from the environment, and how do we survive/escape the lion attack? (ok I’m generalizing, but you get my drift). Although it had its challenges, life was a lot simpler many many years ago. Now our stress involves money, work, toxic chemicals (mostly man-made of course), social pressures that have changed drastically and unnaturally over a very short period of time. We suffer diseases that previously barely existed. What did we eat all those years ago? Rich, healthy organic food, that grew naturally, as nature intended. Today, we have chemical fertilizers, chemical pesticides, GM, modern processing… We have messed with the ecological balance so much with these modern farming techniques. I question whether even organic or biodynamic, despite best intentions of the growers, has the same nutritional value as wild growing food as found in nature did all those years ago.
    You make mention of the liver, our bodies primary detoxification organ. Never before has our liver had such pressure on it to detoxify all the chemicals we are now exposed to daily. And sadly, many of these come in the food we eat!
    So while our demand for nutrients has increased with our increasingly toxic lives, the quality of food and quantity of nutrients it contains has decreased. How do we pick up this shortfall? Well, there’s superfoods and herbs, but in the ‘man-made’ life most of us live mother nature can only do so much. That’s where supplements come in. To bridge the gap we have created between man and mother nature.
    Do I like this? No. Would I like to get all I need from food? Of course. Do I? Well, As a naturopath and holistic nutritionist I’ve got an advantage, and I try my best, but sadly, there are still shortfalls, most commonly in highly demanding times, physically, mentally, emotionally, where modern food (whole, real, organic, whatever) just doesn’t provide all I need. And I see this in my clients every week. I dont belive in supplements everyday, but I do believe they can be of great benefit for many. It’s sad to admit, and I’d like to see food provide all we need, but I do believe supplements are necessary in not all, but some cases.

  11. Nomi says:

    Loved it. Pithy. Thoughtful. Brief, To the point. Often a lot harder to write than a long wordy thing.

  12. Mary says:

    So many of the varieties of produce today are modified to look better on store shelves, not for its nutritional value.

    I was reading a newsletter from Dr. Al Sears in Florida. He said so much of our produce from apples to zuchini contain fewer nutrients today.

    Then there is the pesticide issue. It the old days we didn’t need to be concerned about getting poisoned that way.

    More and more GMO foods are being introduced to the detriment of environment as well as health. Even if we don’t eat it ourselves, if they are fed to animals, we get it anyway. I read that GMO alfalfa is now marketed.

    So maybe some of those pills ARE necessary for us to survive much less thrive.

  13. ANNIE says:

    Kevin, I like the direction of your thought process. I’ve been researching natural cancer cures for three years now, and the more I research, the more I am discovering that God made it AMAZINGLY EASY for all of us to be healthy by STAYING in close contact with Nature! twenty-five years ago, I had first-hand knowledge of embracing a diet of simple raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and herbs and dissolving a cancerous growth within my breast in 14-days! Now, just recently, I’ve discovered the wonderful healing effects of EARTHING, or simply walking BAREFOOT on Mother Earth, which allows for the transfer of anti-oxidant electrons from the ground into our bodies, and these electrons immediately attack any areas of inflammation wherever they exist in our bodies! This is highly effective AND it’s FREE! So, my motto for life is simple…”BACK TO NATURE…BACK TO GOOD HEALTH!”

  14. Em says:

    I get so many emails on a daily basis that it is sometimes overwhelming.

    I cannot delete them until I check them out (lol) so they end up really building up.

    Therefore, I LOVE this short, sweet, simple format!

  15. Emanuel van den Bemd says:

    You are quite right about food that has not been tampered with and has been grown organically containing all the vitamins, minerals and complexes neccessary for our metabolism. But you know as well as I do, that that it not the case. Greedy Malthusiast Elite control the world. They ensure that our food is completely denatured. That medicines are toxic and vaccines are designed to kill and/or sterilise us. So what can we do about it except take superfoods and high potency supplements to protect ourselves and compensate for the refinement and processing that specifically pushes us toward self destruction. Get informed about Codex Alimentarius with its minimal nutritional recommendations based on FDA ( Fascist Disease Administration)starvation levels that wouldn’t keep a dicky bird in good health. The more you look into what is happening to all of us, the range and scope of chronic diseases, the more frightening it becomes and the more urgent it is that we do something about these criminals who pretend they mean so well with us… before we are all dead meat.

  16. Im agreeing with you Kevin; the issue I have is that it is very hard to get quality foods in most areas. Our grounds are depleted and, contaminated. Not to mention the deception of organics.
    As well, I dont think this earth was in the same condition as it was back in the day. Take our current radiation levels for example. We should certainly be doing something to protect our thyroid. Im seeing a LOT of thyroid issues right now. The main-stream is making lots of money on Thyroid removals from what I have been witnessing. Its un-nerving.

  17. Ian says:

    you are saying about just plain food is what we need thats ok if the quality of the food is good or as good as it was years ago.this is why we neeed vitamin supplements.years ago l went to night school we were looking at different farms and what they produced many still producing the same products some ten years latter but the vitamin and mineral content were very much depleated.
    Regards Ian

  18. Candice says:

    Keep these up. They may be more motivational than informational, but we need both.

    Thanks!

  19. neshka says:

    My kind of thinking! This is exactly what I belive in – back to simple basics. Let thy food be your medicine and thy medicine be your food!
    If it’s processed (even if its organic) I’ll go for the ingredience in their original form – just like Mother Nature made it;).

  20. Faith Minier says:

    My thoughts exactly and I LOVE it! I believe our bodies are quite capable of getting what they need from the local food supply if we make sure it is fresh and real food, without over processing or adding a bunch of chemicals to it. The only time in my life when I felt “super-human” was when I eliminated all sugar (besides fresh fruit) from my diet. So called “super-foods” are super expensive and in my opinion unnecessary. We do however, have a lot of toxins to avoid and eliminate these days. I would appreciate some more info on eliminating the toxins. Is eating whole/real food enough? What about Diatomaceous earth? Chlorella? Fasting? Thanks for all you do to try to help us.

  21. Jacquie says:

    Here! Here! Excellent, Kevin, and beautifully said. I will put my vote in for my kale. Deeeeelish!

  22. Larry Fishman says:

    spinach, especially from my garden. Too bad it does not grow during the summer, like kale, my second favorite, super-human whole food.

  23. Julia says:

    Like and agree with the theory. Wonder about denatured soil and then I think about my great-grandparents who grew up in Reconstruction in late 1880’s. If I remember correctly, their diet consisted of cooked greens, cornbread and sweet potatoes in the winter. Summer brought tons of vegetables to the table but meat was very limited. (For those of you who missed the epic tales, Sherman’s troops eradicated all of the wildlife and much of domestic stock throughout the South. Deer weren’t seen often until the late 1960’s.) From the stories, I gathered that they did often take doses of wild herbs. WELL, they all lived to be almost 100…thus I heard this story.

  24. Jayvanthy says:

    Keep at it Kevin. There is never an end to understanding Nature and Creation. The more the Better

  25. leneo says:

    Keep them coming.

  26. Anna says:

    Thanks for this! I struggle with the natural community and the overload of information. It’s overwhelming to hear about new supplements or super foods we should be consuming. Simple is better, especially if you are not sick to begin with. I keep asking myself “how long do some of the health experts want to live anyway?!” I know soneone will be outraged for my saying, but you’ve got to die from something.

  27. Yvonne says:

    Most ppl use food as our source of energy.

    Breatharians use air as their source of energy (they don’t consume food). I once met a group of Bretharians at a spritual fair and was convinced they were making fun of me, but no, they were not, there really is such a thing as Breatharians.

    Another source of energy is water from a so called TC carafe, which restructures, revitalizes and energizes water. After 3 minutes water in a TC carafe has got several thousand Bovis units, measurable with an instrument. http://www.tccarafes.com/how-it-works/
    One such glass carafe will arrive in my mail in a few days. Can’t wait to try it!

    Today I got an email saying numerology has the answers to the perfect personalized diet. Say what..?? In this world of info everywhere I feel exhausted by all these new ideas. The question is: could this be true, could numerology really have the answer to what I should eat to feel good? Is it worth the $27 to find out..?? http://www.numerologydiet.com/research.php
    I wish somebody could tell me! *sigh*

    And lastly… my 5 cents contribution to this debate and search for the optimum food for optimum health: I question that veggies are good for everybody. Here is why. There is a type of cancer called hormone positive. Phytoestrogens in soy beans, garbanzo beans, veggies and fruits are plant hormones which cause breast cancer in women with a certain DNA makeup (the hormone positive breast cancer). The problems is that no woman knows if she belongs to the risk zone, unless she does a blood test. But nobody is talking about this. There is soy protein in most foods in the store, b/c it is a cheap additive. The vegetarian, vegan and raw food movement are all screaming on top of their lungs how good it is to eat veggies. But this is not true for everybody. Besides causing cancer, eating veggies can make ppl very very sick if they are on kidney dialysis or suffer from a bladder disease called IC. I am a living example of how 4 years on vegetarian diet caused me breast cancer (hormone positive) and later a diet of daily green smoothies led to IC and disability. When ppl around me craved chocolate and junk food I craved parsley and veggies. Today I am disabled and a very angry former nutritionist who thought I did the right thing eating veggies.

    Peace!

  28. Yvonne says:

    Clarification to my previous post: phytoestrogens in veggies relate to hormone positive breast cancer while potassium in veggies and other foods relate to kidney dialysis and IC (both phytoestrogens and potassium causing these diseases).

  29. Mel says:

    Hi Kevin
    Thanks for all of your very informative articles & insights into our evolving health & the issues surrounding us daily of health problems & their cures as such. I always look forward to opening your emails as is like a lucky dip, we never know what to expect.
    I particularly lIke this article & look forward to more of the same. My son who is 15 is ceoliac as well as allergies to dairy, yeast, sulphites & nitrate & sugar His diet is very healthy & has been for last two years however suffers badly from excess mucas & reoccuring parasite problems. I explain that he is eating too much cooked meat for protein & would benefit with more raw foods to clear up the mucas. So reading this article has given me some “ammo” to fire back at him when he asks “where do I get my calcium from? Protein from?” I have explained that the protein and calcium in plant and nut based foods is easily digested than cooked meat He doesn’t believe me that spinach & kale is high protein. He can’t get his head around plant foods to be higher in protein than eating meat. So keep up articles like this so that I have back up to argue my point. Thanks Mel

  30. Frank Berg says:

    Kevin
    There is certainly nothing wrong with eating our food from plants. Eat as many as you can raw.
    There is however something we need to keep in mind. Plants can’t absorb minerals that are not in the soil in which they grow. Each plant is designed to absorb certain minerals. Kale,cabbage and broccoli have their good share of minerals, but not anywhere close to the 98 minerals that our body needs every day. Where as cacao and Goji berries have many and different minerals by design and because of being grown in totally different mineral rich soil. Kelp and Shiitake Mushrooms Come to us grown in different places and by design of God they have many minerals and other good things that perhaps green veggies don’t have. When we consider the vast variety of foods we can eat it is not practical to have a storehouse full to pick and choose every day what we should eat each day.
    It is safe to say supplements can have a reasonable place in our food supply.
    God’s concentration of 98 minerals in the deposits of black mica in Japan and the Himalayas not only gave us the example of concentrated minerals to use as supplements, He also gave us the knowledge to recover these from a rock like material. Adya Clarity is a wonderful balanced supplement in the correct proportions for our bodies. We need not be concerned that we are getting too much of any one mineral. These deposits are a few million years old and the minerals are preserved in store for us today. Think also of the sea. The live sea mammals get all the minerals their bodies need from the sea. The product “Oceans Alive” has the right proportions of 98 minerals in every drop. As with Adya Clarity you can take a little or take a lot, whatever you feel your body needs and the proportions stay the same.
    Your short blogs will give us a chance to consider and explore alternatives so that we may learn not only how to make our sick bodies well but to keep them well.
    It is true we all have to die to go back to being with God but there is no merit in being painfully sick and frail the last quarter of our lives. Enjoy good health and longevity.
    At 78 years of age I enjoy managing my online shopping mall http://www.AboveAndBeyondMall.com but my love and passion is searching out a pathway of good health and longevity for all of us and sharing it with you.

  31. chris harrison says:

    Balance in the physical body would be the goal; but, unrecognized generally, is the balancing and cleansing nature of source energy, gained by way of deep meditation. Finding that balance will be frustrating in seeking strict material solutions to a problem that involves larger yet lesser known causes. A soul in peace attracts healing energy, a soul in peace pursues healing energy. I suspect blood letting by way of frequent testing has benefit but future history will admit it as a stopgap between a desperate attempt to remove symptoms and whole entity healing. Ask for healing and be open to the possibilities that you’ll be guided toward. Since the answers must necessarily come from within, take advice intuitively, not what I or anyone else says, because the thread of enlightenment comes from within on an individual basis.

    Different and interesting.Look forward to more of your thoughts and comments.Simplicity for sure.Thank you.
    Any comments or thoughts on the Numerology Diet!??

  35. SarahB says:

    Beautifully put, Kevin! As a nutritionist, I see people with bags and bags of supplements that they have been given by the many people who practice “nutrition” out there. I put the word in quotes because these days it seems to be more about testing people and then putting them on supplement protocols and less about real food. Though I do use supplementation in my practice and sometimes with therapeutic doses, it is only for a short period of time, usually to reverse some out of balance biochemistry and when the balance is corrected, the supplements are mostly stopped. All along, I am working with my clients in terms of their food choices and it is always about real food. But, since you asked, apart from greens, my fav is the delicious avocado.

  36. Patricia says:

    Favorite super-human whole foods:
    Kale, walnuts, potatoes, oatmeal, chia seeds, flax seed meal, sweet potatoes, rice, carrots and corn. 🙂

  37. Ginger Burr says:

    Well said. You read my mind!

  38. Peace, Growth and Harmony Farm says:

    Not all broccoli is the same. Get a refractometer and measure the nutritional density of the actual food that you are eating. There has been a serious measurable decline in food quality over the years due to farmers mining and depleting their soils in the name of profits. Find the growers who are bringing the soils back to life with this easy to use instrument. If the broccoli doesn’t have a high “brix” reading then it just ain’t broccoli as broccoli should be.

  39. Gary says:

    Yes Kevin, you are right on! Sometimes the more we research and chase that miracle food or supplement, we overload on specifics that fuel the “some is good, more is better” syndrome and forget we are blessed/cursed with cognitive ability/arrogance that we can outsmart nature or the master plan by acute intervention rather than steady state prevention. We become further removed from the compassionate grace already laid out before us. It is true, what we need, we already have, and holding steadfast to eating whole foods whose ingest-able forms are not manufactured by man, minimally processed as those you refer to, in a broad variety as possible, will sustain us as best possible in this polluted world. We will then naturally redirect our attention, will be free to heighten our awareness of our ordained existence within our limited spheres, which in turn changes the larger sphere we all share. I admit, however, I remain ever alert to the B-12 question. Thank you again.

  40. Deloris says:

    Brilliant in it’s simplicity.

    That said, I have to be in 100% agreeance with Tamara’s reply. I too am a Holistic Nutritionist, and while it would be perfect to get it all from nutrition, our world has changed so dramatically, and so quickly that it’s almost impossible for most of the time, and is impossible all the time.

    I did love the the little “bite” though. And if we could couple todays knowledge with yestermillenia’s soil, flaura and fawna, we’d truly all be superhuman!

    🙂

    That’s my 2 cents.

    you live awesome too Kev.

    Deloris

  41. Cindy says:

    I love the short bites. If I had to pick one food, I think it would be apples. They’re good for many things, & they’re easy to eat without having to be disguised in a smoothie.

    My motto is to eat the best food I can get in whatever situation I’m in, & then take whole food supplements here & there to add to my nutrition. I used to be so dogmatic about the way I ate, & it just caused too much stress in my life. Now I just try to enjoy whatever I’m eating, even it’s not something so good for me & not stress so much. It makes life so much simpler.

  42. Mist says:

    Broccoli.

    I’ve tried various exotic super food, supplements, and vitamins that didn’t benefit or agree with me. Seems my body’s telling me to focus on just good old fashioned food.

    The “bite” format is cool, in the style of snacks, appetizers, tapas, bocas, or banchan. The longer length articles are like full meals that require more time to digest but well worth the time and effort if the topics are of interest to one.

    Keep up the great work, Kev! 🙂

  43. Francesca says:

    Great article!!! In this world of madness, over-processed foods, and chemicals sold as food, we do need to be reminded of the wisdom of nature. I vote for Kevin to continue with this kind of articles.
    Love

  44. Mike Q says:

    Hey Kev, all I have to say is that is so true! Nature and our bodies have an innate knowledge that should not be tinkered with.

  45. Fran says:

    I enjoyed today`s post and would also like to see more of them.

  46. I appreciate following nature and eating raw and natural. How about yoga that follows natures designs> There are no straight lines or right angles in the natural world. All is composed of spirals and curves
    . Check out YogAlign
    A new synergy of self-applied bodywork/yoga with natural bio-mechanics and somatic reeducation for perfectly aligned posture and a bio-sustainability created from the inside out !!
    go to http://www.yogalign.com to see the amazing results of yoga poses that follow the natural curves of the human body. WE all hate chairs so why do so many yoga poses have that same right angle ??

  47. LynnCS says:

    Good article, Kevin. Yes I like this short version sometimes too. Still gets a lot of response. You said, “We were then given high octane fuel that contained the exact formula to reach the pinnacle of peak performance. Our DNA was programmed to take what it needed from these items and discard the rest, just in case the body ever became overloaded.” I like that. The closer I come to eating all organic fruits and vegis..locally grown and picked recently, the better I feel. I read some scary scenarios among your readers/posters that give me pause with that idea. I’ve been including some beans in my salads and now am told that they can cause breast cancer. Again something to give up that is not fresh and raw.

  48. Eugeniya says:

    I agree 110%! And speaking from experience with all these expensive and useless supplements. When my son had asthma, none of that staff worked, no matter how “great” it was prepared. I cured his asthma he had for 3 years in a matter of a few days, by using therapeutic grade essential oils.
    Personally, I never eat anything unless it looks real, including aloe.

  49. Eugeniya says:

    People are so brainwashed by all these scientific stories… Norman Walker and Ann Wigmore books give you true info about real nutrition.

    Love this, Kevin! Keep it coming.
    Note to some “wordy” people…I think YOU’RE missing the point or are the type of person that has to have the last word. Here’s my word…CHILL!!! No one likes a know-it-all!

    To be superhuman is to reach full realization that we are spirits in material beings. The fuel for this is to nourish the mind, body and spirit with the most pure thoughts, food and aspirations.

  55. Hester says:

    Great article Kev. As a holistic nutritionist I agree with SarahB. We need to understand and address the biochemical deficiencies that the individual has. Healthy intestines and proper absorption of nutrients is essential. I was menopausal and overweight yet eating “healthy” did not help me to get rid of the extra lbs. Last year I found a program called Metabolic Balance and started to follow this program based on food. I have lost 20 lbs and never felt better. The program is based on the assumptions that every human body is capable of producing all the hormones and enzymes it needs for healthy metabolism. We supply our bodies with the nurients based on food. Our bodies also have the ability to develop an appetite for foods that contain the nurients that our bodies need.
    People that are following the MB ptogram did not only lose weight but were able to experience a vast improvemnt in the quality of health. This included going off their medications and improved blood chemistry results. They are able to maintain their ideal weight and quality of life. I am so impressed with what the program has done for me and now am equipped to follow it for life.
    As a nutritionist I highly recommend this program and its benfits. Check it out for yourself. Dr. Wolf Funfack MD is a German internist and founder of the MB program.
