THE DISTANT PAST

2 million years of evolution can't be wrong

Lions evolved to be a carnivores, they didn't choose to be. Their entire biology is based on this. If you tried to feed a lion a vegetarian diet it would die. Humans evolved to be omnivores. Animal protein is a key part of our survival and it's believed to be how our brains doubled in size and led us to become what we are today. 

THE MISCONCEPTIONS

Many people believe our ancestors lived a short and miserable life without proper nutrition. Some question why we should model our diet after them.

WHAT WE'VE LEARNED

We now know they had the ideal diet and lived a long time. They subsisted mainly on meat while being free of all modern cardiovascular and chronic diseases.

THE PAST 50 YEARS

Bad science and misinformation

There are many cases of bad science and faulty studies starting in the 60s. The sugar industry paid off scientists to blame things like heart disease and weight gain on fat, when in reality it was carbohydrates and sugar. There's also been many other cases of bad science that has led to the harmful Food Pyramid and poor nutrition advice at the highest levels of the US government. 

THE MISCONCEPTIONS

The Food Pyramid promoted by the US government has been insanely harmful to the health of the country. It is based on bad science.

WHAT WE'VE LEARNED

Americans have become FAT and SICK on this diet. It has led to obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Something needs to change soon.

Articles & Studies

A Quick Analogy

(We hate factory farming and cruelty to animals as much as you do)

Grain-fed Cow

Cows aren't meant to eat grain. They are forced to so that they can get FAT and EAT CHEAPLY. The result is a malnourished and sickly animal.

Grass-fed Cow

When cows eat grass like they were meant to, they are HAPPY and HEALTHY. Humans also survive best eating what we were meant to eat - healthy and happy animals.

The same goes for humans! We won't die if we live on grains, it's just not what we were meant to eat. It causes us to be FAT and UNHEALTHY.

THE PRESENT

The new & best science on nutrition

We finally are uncovering the mistakes of the past and understanding the proper human diet. Fad diets can be a thing of the past - we now know the simple way to eat optimally. Let's call this the Sapien Diet. If you learn some simple science and diet practices you can live a happy and healthy life.

THE MISCONCEPTIONS

Meat and fat have been maligned. Bad studies have led us to believe that these healthy components of a diet are doing us harm, when it is in fact the opposite.

WHAT WE'VE LEARNED

The ideal human diet (or Sapien Diet) consists of whole foods without carbs and sugar. Vegetables, well-sourced meat, eggs, nuts, and some fruit.

Articles & Studies

What if it's All Been a Big Fat Lie?

What to Eat

Low carb diet w/ unlimited meat & eggs beats low fat diet. Subjects lost nearly twice as much weight, decreased bad serum triglycerides by 2.7 times, and raised good HDL 3.4 times compared to low fat diet.

The ideal diet, how we get fat, and so much more. Everything you need to know in 1 video.
