This is a reblog from the vivalamanosphere.com website. In the “lifestyles” category.
I could not find the authors name to credit him however.
It’s an excellent read.
Food Maketh the Man
There’s been a lot said about the Paleo diet.
(aka the caveman diet – meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, and some fruits and nuts. No grain products, excess sugar, vegetable oil, dairy, legumes, or processed foods)
But the fact that you’re in this corner of the web, means there are many good reasons for you try it out.
1. It will give you more Testosterone.
“There are three main components to being a great man, that when possessed even in small quantities, will lead to a rewarding life. […] Game, Lifestyle, and Testosterone Management.”
“[Testosterone] is the fuel that feeds the fire. Without testosterone, you will be less motivated and productive in your game and lifestyle efforts.”
Roosh V – How To Be A Great Man
The Paleo diet promotes natural testosterone production through:
Zinc – oysters, shrimp, eggs, liver, spinach.
Omega 3 fats (fuel for hormone production) – grassfed meats, wild fish, shellfish.
Vitamins A, B, C, E (promotes testosterone production) – wild meat, spinach, asparagus, liver.
Indole-3-Carbinol (anti-estrogen) – broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage.
Cholesterol (testosterone fuel – note: dietary cholesterol is different to blood cholesterol) – wild meat, eggs, liver, shellfish.
While removing food which lowers your body’s testosterone levels – sugar.
And the most obvious benefit of higher testosterone – better sex.
2. It will get you laid.
“Your bulletproof Game and charming personality wont make you look any better when your shirt comes off.”
“I realize that I’m heading into dangerous territory with this, but I maintain that looks are an integral part of attraction – sorry, that’s a fact of life – but I’ve never stated that looks cancel Game. In fact I advocate that learning Game is just as necessary as maintaining a good physique.”
Rollo Tomassi – Looks Count
When combined with exercise, fat loss on the Paleo diet is easy because you won’t need to count calories. Meat and vegetables are low in calories and will leave you full for hours, so you can eat until you’re full.
3. It will get you laid.
“Cooking a decent meal for a woman is an easy way to get laid. Especially if you keep her around for conversations while she can watch you cook. Trust me this is probably one of the most under-rated alpha traits known to men.”

More on how to cook toward the end.
4. You’ll enjoy a long, healthy, vibrant life.
This is a list of chronic diseases that are epidemic for us today:
Coronary heart disease
Type 2 diabetes
Epithelial cell cancers
– Our hunter-gathering ancestors rarely or never suffered from these.
When you consider that, in America:
1 in 4 will die of heart disease,
1 in 3 adults have hypertension, and,
36% of adults are obese,
this is hugely significant – our ‘diseases of civilization’ are completely preventable.
How did this happen??
Post agricultural revolution, our diets changed to be based around grain, dairy products and sugars. And more recently, processed foods. The problem is: our biology didn’t change with it – and our health paid the price.
So why am I being told by the government to eat 6-11 portions of grains per day?
One word: Monsanto.
“Monsanto is an American biotech/agribusiness company that is responsible for the promotion of genetically modified crops (GMOs) and our country’s reliance on corn as a major staple of its food supply. Over the years, Monsanto and a select few similar corporations have spent hundreds of millions of dollars lobbying the US government to influence food policy supporting purely financial aims. Monsanto has also developed intimate relationships with trusted agencies like the FDA and the USDA to promote their interests over the public health of our country.”
Return of Kings – Monsanto Ruins American Bodies
In short, you’re being told to eat 6-11 portions of grain per day because that’s what the government have been paid lobbied to tell you.
Downsides: It’s expensive.
Well, it is and it isn’t.
Grass fed beef costs more, yes. Organic eggs and vegetables cost more, sure.
But this price disparity is due to the price of Monsanto’s monstrosities being kept artificially low.
They’ve bribed lobbied Washington to encourage farmers to grow its agriculture through subsidies, offering further subsidies for their GMO crops. As a result, we’re flooded with a surplus of dirt cheap, chemical-laced GMO corn and grain.
Which is then used to feed the animals whose meat, milk and eggs you consume.
Which is used to make baked goods and pasta.
And which becomes the basis of all processed food.
It costs more because that’s the price that real food actually costs. It costs more because that’s the price of food which hasn’t had its nutrition engineered out and who-knows-what engineered in to improve its colour and shelf life. It costs more because it won’t kill you prematurely.
You’re already addicted.
“High Fructose Corn Syrup. Corn oil. Dextrose. Maltodextrin. Corn meal. All key ingredients in the sheeple feed industry. All derived from the genetically modified, pesticide drenched fields grown all across the fruited plains.”
Keoni Galt – Biotech is Godzilla
Because of its cheapness and ‘unique’ qualities, high fructose corn syrup and sugar have made it into all processed and fast food (sheeple feed) – the stuff we eat daily.
“There are five tastes on your tongue: sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami.
“Sugar covers up the other four, so you can’t taste the negative aspects of foods. You can make dog poop taste good with enough sugar.”
Getting off it isn’t easy either. Any diet which cuts out an entire food group is much more difficult than one where you can eat in moderation, because you’ll experience cravings.
Sheeple feed is an entirely different animal though – it’s been wilfully engineered to keep you coming back for more because of sugar’s heroin addiction-like effect.
It’s another way the government controls you, leading you to a future of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity, all to line their pockets with silver.
Successfully Cutting Out the Addictive Food Group
I remember the first time I tried removing sugar from my diet.
After everyone foamed at the mouth over Tim Ferris’ “The 4 Hour Body”, I jumped on board. Three weeks later I fell off the waggon, never to return.
Mr. Ferris certainly talks a big game – that much is obvious. And after whipping me into a frenzy with his promises, it fell apart at the critical stage – the implementation.
He lists what foods you can and can’t eat, but then stops there. There are a handful of recipe suggestions, but that’s it.
For three solid weeks, I was eating burrito salads twice a day. “The 4 Hour Body” left me ill-equipped to face the reality beyond the hype – that I would be experiencing cravings that daily burritos cannot help me with.
You see, the key to surviving the removal of sugar and processed food is variety. Having enough variety to replace and satisfy your cravings.
And Googling for recipes just didn’t help.
They’re random, requiring wildly different ingredients.
The quality is very poor as you’re picking from amateur recipes.
Many require special equipment or cooking skills.
There’s little variety or imagination – just a thousand other burrito salad recipes and some others.
It was an absolute mess. Looking back, I’m surprised I actually made it to three weeks.
Happily though, I’ve been Paleo for a little over 7 months now, mainly because I’ve had the right book to help.
And if you’d like to take this further, I’d like to recommend the same book to you – The Paleo Recipe Book.
With over 370 professional recipes, there’s enough variety to satisfy all the cravings you’ll experience.
There’s also enough choice that if you don’t like one or more of the 18 food categories, it’s no big deal. (I’m not a fan of shellfish, so after removing the shellfish category, I was left with 355 other recipes to choose from.)
They’re simple, and you don’t need any cooking experience or special equipment.
They’re restaurant-quality recipes – which also makes them perfect for home dinner dates. Believe me, it does the heavy lifting for you, which is ideal since you just happen to be a few feet from your bedroom…
