Two and a half years ago, at the age of 27, I was working as a personal trainer and was physically very active. However, I was forced to stop working towards the end of 2012 because I was experiencing debilitating fatigue and severe migraine headaches. The doctors I consulted told me that my symptoms were most likely due to excessive stress.
- Are eggs OK?
- I thought saturated fat caused heart disease.
- Don’t we need grains?
- Too much protein is bad for your kidneys.
- Low fat is better for me.
- Several small meals per day is better than 2 or 3 big meals.
- Omega 6 /3 Ratios
- Low Carb / Zero Carb diets are dangerous in the long term.
- What’s so bad about sugar?
- But, fat makes me fat.

Optimal foods include:
- Meat! Beef, veal, pork, chicken, duck, turkey, fish, shellfish, lamb, etc. Organ meat if you enjoy it, liver, kidneys, and such like. Bacon, of course!
- Eggs; as many as you like. Yolks are delicious and good for you.
