The Original Fast Foods Solution
The book Original Fast Foods shares how Americans ate in the early 1900’s, when only 1 in 150 Americans were obese. It also shares how rural populations of Asia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, and Mexico eat to remain trim, fit, and among the most disease-resistant populations in the world. Their rates of heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and cancers of the breast, prostate, and colon are only 1/10 to 1/50 the U.S. rates of the same diseases.
So, what is the trim, fit, and disease-resistant eating pattern of today's healthiest populations. At least 70 percent of their caloric intake is from grains, starchy vegetables, and/or fruit. These are complimented with generous portions of vegetables and a sparing amount of natural fats (2 to 3 ounces of nuts, seeds, or animal products per day, two to three times per week).
Indigenous carbohydrate sources vary from region to region, and it doesn’t seem to really matter whether trim and fit people eat rice, beans, corn, taro, potato, sweet potato, millet, quinoa, sorghum, squash, or even fruit as their carbohydrate sources. What matters is that 70+ percent of their calories in each meal come from whole, pure, and natural carbohydrates that are complimented with generous portions of vegetables, and sparing portions of nuts, seeds, or animal products.
USDA food statistics reveal that this is the dietary pattern that was followed by Americans from 1905, until the early 1930s, when a major shift in our eating pattern begun. Sadly, today less than 7 percent of America’s caloric intake is derived from whole, pure and natural plant-based foods; 51 percent is from processed and refined foods, oils, and sugars; and 42 percent is from animal products. America is no longer a trim, fit, and disease-resistant population.
