Find & Follow Your Truth

find-your-truth-then-follow-your-path-blog

Four years ago, I began documenting my physical – and very much mental – dietary transformation.  I called it TRUTHOLOGY, because it described my personal quest to discover the optimal human diet.  Over the course of the last few years, I have come to find that there are multiple truths and the optimal human diet is subject to the individual.

The reason I stopped PORKING OUT

From time to time, I am asked why I don’t eat pork tenderloin. After all, from a nutritional standpoint, it is comparable to a skinless chicken breast. So if it’s a relatively low-calorie lean source of protein, why do I choose to avoid it?

Diet and Religion

It occurred to me this holiday season that diet and religion have striking similarities.

I could have easily passed all of these off as stress-related symptoms – and I’m not denying that stress probably has a lot to do with them – but after having done some extensive research on the mix of symptoms I was experiencing, I came to the conclusion that I was suffering from a Vitamin B12 deficiency.

Since all of the symptoms I described above are consistent with a B12 deficiency, I asked my doctor to write me a lab order to have my blood drawn. The very next day, I found out that I was in fact below the normal range for Vitamin B12. Continue reading
