Dr. Ron’s Superfats, Super Fun Diet
for Healing, Weight Loss and Longevity
Paleo Meets Weston Price Meets Low Carb
Coconut Oil and Other Superfats Make for a Tasty, Healthy Breakfast
How about an omelet tomorrow morning? Pastured eggs, onions and a little broccoli sautéed in coconut oil, raw milk cheese, lots of butter. Some bacon perhaps? Maybe a slice or two of sprouted whole grain bread? Sound like fun? Does to me!
Or perhaps just a lovely, fatty ribeye steak for breakfast…with a butter sauce and mushrooms over the top, sea salt and ground pepper?
Pressed for time? Blend up a smoothie with three or four ounces of raw cream, two whole eggs, and five or six yolks.
Precede any of your breakfast choices with a tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil, up to 1 teaspoon or several capsules of fermented cod liver oil and two 1000 mg capsules of krill oil.
Then, especially if you did without the toast, you may enjoy several hours of high-energy ketosis. You won’t be hungry. Your body will be burning ketones – fat bodies – for fuel, instead of glucose. You’ll be losing any excess weight you’re carrying. Your blood level of insulin (the hormone that makes the cells of your body store fat and the excess of which leads to chronic diseases) will be minimal. Your thinking will be clear, your mood will be …a natural high! You won’t need as much coffee (maybe none!).
Ketosis occurs when you eat few or no carbohydrates. Don’t confuse it with the ketoacidosis that may occur in diabetes and is accompanied by major disturbances in the body’s chemistry. Ketosis, on the other hand, is a very healthy state. Our Paleolithic ancestors – and many of the native cultures Weston Price studied in the 1930s – lived on variations of my Superfats Diet, and they burned ketones for energy because their diets had little or no carbohydrates. You might describe the Superfats Diet as Paleo meets Weston Price meets Low Carb.
Superfats for Lunch and Dinner – Grassfed Meat, Wild Seafood, Lots of Butter, Salads
Now, what about the midday meal? To the breakfast choices, let’s add a juicy hamburger. I recommend grassfed meats and pastured eggs. What a taste and health difference from the usual commercially available items!
Once daily I like a good-sized salad of organic mixed greens with red onions, cauliflower, carrots, sprouts and olives, dulse (a wonderfully tasty seaweed), and extra virgin olive oil and raw apple cider vinegar. Perhaps a half an avocado – good fats there, very satiating. Sometimes tomato (though I’m careful to go easy on them). Some quality feta or blue cheese really dresses up a salad.
For the evening meal, let’s add to the above choices wild seafood – salmon, sole, scallops, other favorites, with lots of butter and seasonings if you like. The seafood choice is available earlier in the day as well, of course. And lets add chicken, turkey, organ meats, green vegetables, beets and fermented vegetables (sauerkraut, beets, carrots, others). Fermentation converts carbohydrates to lactic acid, and fermented veggies have beneficial bacteria. Properly prepared, they taste great and are very good for you. I eat some every day. Sometimes I’ll include a little brown rice with a meal. Unsalted nuts – roasted pistachios, almonds, pecans, walnuts – make a great snack or dessert.
Tastes Great, More Filling Too. Cholesterol? Breaking Addictions.
The Superfats Diet is fun because superfats taste great and make you feel good physically and mentally. Yes, they are rich in cholesterol, but all this cholesterol business is just that – business. Drug companies selling billions of dollars worth of drugs. A medical establishment unduly influenced by the drug companies. Cholesterol does not cause heart disease. Refined foods and excessive eating of carbohydrates does. Carbohydrates include everything starchy (bread, pasta, flour of all kinds, potatoes, grains) and everything sweet (sugar in all its forms, including honey, and fruit). Yes, everything we love, until we give them up…like an alcoholic loves alcohol until he gives it up! Carbs are addictive. But so is the Superfats Diet, in a positive way. You’ll get addicted to feeling good, and looking good.
Superfat Foods. Ketones, Ketosis, Weston Price, Paleolithic Diet Principles
So, to recap a bit. Superfats are found in grassfed meats and organs, wild seafood, grassfed raw milk, cream, butter and cheese, avocadoes, unrefined coconut oil, fermented cod liver oil, krill oil, and extra virgin olive oil. Superfats in the ideal proportions satisfy your appetite and cause your body to burn ketones for energy instead of glucose. This minimizes insulin production and maximizes healing from all manner of health problems from asthma to cancer to Alzheimer’s disease. You lose weight that needs to be lost and move toward optimal health. You envision a long, healthy life, empowered with the knowledge that your health can be secure, committed to the ideals you live by and the foods that make it all possible. Is this too much to hope for? No! Dare to reach for these things.
The Superfats Diet is based on the dietary principles that governed the diet of our Paleolithic ancestors (contrary to a number of popular books, they did not eat much fruit or other carbohydrate rich foods; they lived almost entirely on animals). The Superfats Diet also embodies many of the principles Weston Price discovered in his studies of traditional cultures throughout the world in the 1920s and thirties (a number of which lived almost entirely on animal foods, and all of which ate lots of superfats).
The underlying principle of the Superfats Diet is simply that recovery from disease, optimal health and longevity are all promoted by these wonderful, tasty foods that are rich in highly beneficial fats. This diet provides a moderate amount of protein, and in the green vegetables and salads, a very low amount of carbohydrates. Analysis of my own personal version of the Superfats Diet indicates that about 75% to 80% of my calories come from superfats, 15% to 20% from protein, and less than 10% from carbohydrates.
Insulin, Quality Animal Fats, and Carbohydrates
This diet works! Proportions vary for every individual, and the amount of carbohydrates that will be well tolerated varies from person to person. But the principle remains the same – eat lots of superfats! Stick to the foods I’ve described above, and eat little else! Minimizing carbs minimizes the body’s production of insulin. That is a very good thing, because insulin is the hormone that tells the body to store fat. Excessive insulin promotes obesity and chronic disease. Very low carbohydrate intake means very low insulin output. Excess weight is lost, and usually, disease goes away. I base these statements on over thirty years of research, my experience with thousands of patients, and the way my own diet has evolved over the years.
Dr. Ron's Krill Oil
Quality animal fats are chronically missing in today’s diets because of widespread misinformation about cholesterol and saturated fats. Carbohydrates are the bane of modern diets, and the root cause of the epidemic of disease we face today. Chronic disease is associated with elevated insulin levels – caused by excessive carbohydrate consumption (this means flour, as in breads and pasta, grains, fruits, sweets of all kinds, starchy vegetables, processed foods of all kinds).
Pure Supplements – Krill Oil, Organs and Glands, Cod Liver Oil, Calcium, Sea Vegetables
Food supplements play a crucial role in my nutritional plan. Many Dr. Ron’s Ultra-Pure supplements are concentrates of traditional foods that were sacred in cultures throughout the world. These include Krill Oil, Fermented Cod Liver Oil, Organ Delight (our combination organ and gland capsules), Sea Vegetables Plus, and many others. Some, like our Doc’s Best multi, Cal Mag, Vision Quest, and Life Caps concentrate nutrients important for therapeutic purposes and longevity. All contain the very best natural ingredients and have no additives or extraneous materials whatsoever. We use only the pure nutrients.
The Natural Human Diet for Healing, Prevention and Longevity
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” the old adage has it. The most valuable health insurance is prevention. The key to prevention is the Superfats Diet and the right supplements to complement that diet. A disciplined approach, whatever one’s budget, may lead to dramatic changes in health and well-being that will be well worth the financial and emotional investment. If you have your health, all things become possible.
The sign that hangs outside my office reads, “Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.” That sums up what I’ve learned in over thirty years as a naturopathic physician. The fact is that the Superfats Diet is the natural human diet, and we thrive on it. I have for sixty-seven years – with no gray hair, hair loss or excess pounds – and I’m hoping for many more.
