Yes. It's true. We've all been lied to our entire lives about the dangers of eating meat, especially red meat. Sadly, the lying by the powers at be continues to this day. The reality is the optimal human food are animals. Period. Full Stop. Nothing even comes close. Today is the first video in a series of videos I will be recording uncovering the truths of eating animals, particularly meat. I don't get into the ethics or morality of if as that will require other videos. This is purely based on the nonsense "science" that has been used to slander animal foods unjustly.
Is Meat Healthy or Not
[00:00:00] What's up Wildlings, Colin here., the wild CEO out in the wild farm. Soon to be farm. More of just a homestead right now. Today's video is all about why you've been duped about meat, right? Especially clean, organic, sustainable, small family farm produced with respect meat, and particularly ruminant meats, or red meats typically.
You've been lied to. We've all been lied to. They're still lying to people in the masses. And then we had this whole plant-based dogma and agenda that's coming through that has warped the narrative to be plants are good, meat is bad. Well, in today's video, I'm going to rant through that a little bit.
I'm going to give you some resources that you can get into yourself if you really, really want to understand this and go deep into it. And again, this is not to bash plant-based. There are a lot of plants that can fit in a healthy diet and I consume them myself. But the idea that your diet should be a bulk of plants and somehow you're going to be healthier because of it is not true.
In fact, it's the reverse. [00:01:00] And as with all things that are common knowledge, they are typically 100% wrong. It's weird how that is. Most of the things that society or the government promotes or people accept as truth is literally opposite of the case. When it comes to meat and nutrition, there is a lot of misinformation out there.
And so today's video is just about meat particularly, and why you shouldn't be afraid of it, why you should try to source really good meats, of course, but also why meat should be the bulk of your diet. Really clean animal, approximately bulk of every humans die because it's the optimal human food. Let's get to it.
Okay, so first things first, there's a whole story here. There's a huge story for politics and a doctor back in the 60s named Ansel Keys - if you really want to dig into that, I would highly recommend going and reading some of Gary Tobbs work. He's got multiple books out on it - good calories, bad calories, one of the primary ones, and he goes into why we believe what we believe today, why there's so much scientific dogma and nonsense around it and how the government got involved. You know, Eisenhower and ancil keys and all these things that happened back in the, [00:02:00] I would say for the sixties and seventies right? And there really took off in the eighties and nineties with the whole, like, it's all about calories, right?
Low fat, you know, don't eat your egg yolks and all that. Scaremongering that has literally resulted in the obesity epidemic we have today. And then now we have pharmaceutical companies and food manufacturers that fund. Almost all of the research that's done for nutrition science, and that's another thing you hear about, you hear about nutrition science.
Well, that entire field of research is about making food more shelf-stable, more palatable, better tasting, easier to make, etc. Is nothing to do with human health and nutrition whatsoever. You see, a lot of these studies are cited by the news, by the media, by certain pundants, et cetera. Sensational headlines, you know, it's such garbage.
But on that point, there's never been one controlled for study ever done, actually controlled for and peer reviewed that's been executed in a way to correlate consuming meat to any kind of negative health consequence. There's not one. So what do they do. What does those research they're talking about?
Why does so many [00:03:00] scientists agree? It's called epidemiological research and it's basically research done through polls. Let me say that again. Research done through polling, usually sending someone a piece of paper in the mail and saying, fill these out. How many cups of ribs have you eaten? How many of this.
How many times a day this, that, that, whatever. And they asked you to do this for maybe six months, a year, whatever. And then they take that data and then maybe they follow up and they'll ask you another set of questions and maybe they'll, even if they go a little bit deeper, they'll actually look at health records.
I don't even know if they can even do that. Like it's really strange how this has even been labeled as, as research. But you take this epidemiological, which is just. Polls research and they've been able to take these correlations. They just pick them out. You know, this group might've shown that they have a higher increase for cancer, and they said they ate two cups of ribs a week for the past year or some nonsense like that.
And that is the extent of the research that has been used with cherry picking, publishing, cherry picking data research that was even funded by food companies that weren't going to show the outcome the food manufacturers wanted were usually killed [00:04:00] off. Right. And you don't ever hear about that getting Polis.
The entire body of research that's done that's connected saturated fat to heart disease or eating red meat to heart disease or high cholesterol, you know, or even salt salt's another one. None of this has been ever executed. Three controlled research study because we'd probably be too expensive. You'd have to literally lock humans up like rats in a cage for a couple years and then feed them and control their exercise and control for everything to get the result, to get an accurate result of what may or may not have happened right.
Correlation based research. Observational research does not prove causation. It does not prove one plus one equals two. It simply says, this group of people did these things right, and let's look at that bucket, and then this was the percentage of people that got hand cancer or heart disease or whatever.
It doesn't cover. Smoking does count for alcohol use. It doesn't count for exercise or lack thereof, et cetera. There's not one published study that has been controlled for. To show this. So anyone that tries during research at you, you can simply ask them to show me the controlled research and then ask them what [00:05:00] resources are citing and say, Oh, well, this is all epidemiological research, which is basically a bunch of polls sent to people in the mail.
It's not research, should it be called research. Okay, so it's the big one. That's the big one. There is no actual evidence. Two point through research that meat does any of these bad things that scientists and news outlets and you know, even certain doctors now recommend. It's a little bit cold out here. I live in Texas and I really cannot wait for it to get hot again cause I'm just over it.
Number two here. Is there is a ton of data, maybe don't call it research, maybe called research, maybe not scientifically published in peer reviewed research. For example, myself, my family clients, I've trained friends and family I've observed over the years and the thousands at this point, millions of case studies of people executing these in their own life and getting favorable results.
You can look at some, the whole 30 paleo diet people that are doing KIDO, even South beach Atkins, to an extent. And you can take a lot of the first principles of all those diets, which most of them get rid of [00:06:00] processed foods, get rid of grains and beans. Lindell's very carb heavy. Things are typically lower carb or moderate, you know, protein depending on, and then are usually moderate to high fat.
Then you look at our ancestral past and you see how. That is how most Hunter gatherers lived in the wild base in their environment for hundreds and thousands of years. There's only a couple of hundred gatherers that they call it. You know the, the paradox, like the guitar ovens paradox, for example, or the Okinawa paradox where they might eat a higher carb.
Keith Dobbins ate something like 60 to 70% of the cowers from a yam Lake, super Taito, but guess what? The rest of food was real close to nature, fish, coconut fruit, et cetera. Someone like the Inuits. You know, the Eskimos eat almost 99% of the calories from fat and protein from animal products. And you a little bit seaweed here and there.
They both do great. There's both no instance of like cavities or heart disease or anything like that and they both are peoples that survived based on their environment. One was an Island, people that was tropical and one was in the [00:07:00] Northern harsh climate. Where you can eat polar bears and moose and seals and whale and things like that where there were no vegetables or fruits around.
So we have all this data. I would even say it's research. I would say it's pathology. It's incestual, uh, biology. You know, it's, it's evolutionary biology, psychology, all of these different branches of, you know, some would call them soft sciences at this point. I think we have a really good amount of data and research to point us into where we should be looking for nutrition, which is going to be based on.
How humans survive in the wild. So if I walk out in these woods right here and I have to survive, the thing I'm going to look for the most is an animal because of the calories. And I'm going to eat every bit of the animal. Oregon's brains, everything marrow, and I'm just gonna be a ton of fat. It's gonna be a ton of protein, and it's going to be almost no carbohydrates.
You can not go in the wild and survive off of carbohydrates. It's impossible. Even a culture like Dobbins, which got 67% of the calories from a yam like sweet potato. [00:08:00] Worked in groups, harvesting, pulling up, digging up, processing, cooking, long periods of time that required a lot of labor. And if you weren't able to work together and also have the techniques to know what you were doing, you would not be able to get a net, a net positive amount of calories out of that.
You would expend more calories than you you could consume. Where as catching any animal whatsoever is always going to give you a boatload of calories. So that's number two. All right, number three to wrap this video up, keep it nice, certain sweet. Keep in mind this video should lead you to other people in other books and articles and looking for information to confirm or if you're trying to to disconfirm what I'm saying right now.
Keep in mind if you're trying to disconfirm what I'm saying right now, you need to go look at the sources that are talking about the promotion of these ideas, because that's where you're gonna find the best information. If you're going to try to dis confirm why meat is not good for you, you can go to the vegan sources and all these other places and you'll find plenty of people that sound convincing and that will try to point this studies, no cherry pick date, and then do all these things to make it seem like I don't know what I'm talking about, but the reality is.
The people that [00:09:00] actually look at the data that actually go into the things unbiased, are finding the real information. So keep that in mind. I would recommend kin Berry, I would, I would recommend the channel. What I've learned. That's a great channel. He does a really good job. I would recommend looking into Mark Sisson.
Um, look at impact theory. He's got some good guests on there. Oh, look at the whole 30 and the founders of whole 30. I forgot her name. Uh, Jessica Hardwig or Melissa Hartwig, I think, um, look into Rob Wolf. Uh, look into. The carnival guy, Paul Saldino, who was on the ancestral mind podcast. You can actually go find that firstname.lastname@example.org.
Uh, go check out McKayla Pearson, Jordan Peterson's daughter, who was also on the ancestral mind podcast. She's doing a line diet, which is basically straight meat and salt because she has a major autoimmune issue, and if she eats any plants, you basically, it destroys our health, right? So it's really fascinating when we get into that with her on that show, there's a lot of resources.
I'll try to link some below. Okay. You can obviously go on Google YouTube. You can find these people. All right? They're doing very good work and I highly recommend, even if you're not fully buying into what I'm saying right now, you at least will expand your awareness of what's possible. Even if you don't want to eat animals, you [00:10:00] should at least understand the ethics around those that do the biology and how eating animals affects human biology, right?
The history of it, all these things. Okay, so number three is, this is getting a lot of attention lately too. This is what the whole carnival movement is around. Plants have natural defense mechanisms inside. Their structure that they use to Thor predators. Gluten's an example of this, you see the whole gluten free fad.
Well, that is a protein that's found in certain grain products that attacks the gut, causes leaky gut, caused all these autoimmune issues and other things, and it is one of these natural. Plant pesticides. Uh, there's electives, there's fight, even phytonutrients, which some people are like, get your greens, get your phone nutrients.
Well, most of those compounds are the plants creating these compounds to kill insects and other small bugs that would eat the plant. Every species in nature has been able to survive to today, and they've done that by having certain defense mechanisms. There are some examples of some of these foods [00:11:00] like so fewer Fein and broccoli for example, which dr Rhonda Kirkpatrick or Rhonda Patrick, she's been promoting cause you see some of the health benefits.
Well it is a toxin. It is a plant defense toxin that may provide some hormetic effect to humans. Meaning it might be like a beneficial stress. The problem is. The load and the amounts and the things that are most glaring are usually grains and lectins and phytates, things like that. Like you soak nuts, remove those and beans and lentils.
These things are usually really, really harsh and they have a very severe effect. And for some people that have autoimmune issues have a life threatening effect or, or a major health implications, right. But they do affect all of us to some extent. The problem is most people have been eating these things for so long and they've been dealing with headaches and, and leaky gut, and, and, and not regular bowel movements and all these issues that they've been dealing with for years that they've, they're just trained to believe that's normal.
Well, when you go off those foods and you feel amazing, you realize that is not normal. And then you change your baseline of what you think is normal or not normal. So the third thing is [00:12:00] most of these beneficial compounds, most of what you think is like a green leafy vegetable that's great for me is full of things that are actually toxins.
Now you got to get into the dose, how much? Some of them might have a hermetic effects that some of them might have a little bit of benefit, but keep in mind these things that were thought to believe are the best, or actually attacking our biology one way or the other. And so there's even a case to be made for all leafy greens for the most part, not even being, and I should say just leafy greens.
There's a lot of vegetables and legumes and grains, things like that. Not even nuts and seeds to an extent. Certain ones, there's a case we made that these foods. Attack human biology and as 100 gather proclaimed, when he was asked by an anthropologist, he said, this always said, we will eat plants when there's not real food available.
Think about that, and that would probably be the default for most Hunter gathers. They would always default to animal products and to fat into protein as the being the most sought after foods because they had the most nutrition and the most calories. [00:13:00] And whereas animals have defense mechanisms by hiding, by attacking, by, by claws, by teeth.
Plants have defense mechanism inside of their biology because they can't run away. Think about that for a second. That is a really fascinating, that kind of ties all these ideas together. Now I've got, I'm gonna keep this video short. Okay. Going to be lots and lots of other videos and and reading and articles and books and things that you can get into for real interested in this.
I highly recommend you do that. And if you were to ask me what my diet is right now, well, it's been more of a car where based diet, it really has a, I use certain superfoods and I use certain supplements to supplement my eating. I look at the base of my diet as being a red meat based or fatty fish based diet, a obviously more organ meat.
I snack on a dried beef heart, things like that. And that is where I get the bulk of my nutrition from. And it's high fat. It's moderate to high protein, and it's very, very low carb and I feel amazing doing it. And since we moved out here, you know, we're, I've been out here about a month, I'm already literally leading up.
I'm going to aim for about a six to 7% body fat. I'm trying to get really, really lean right [00:14:00] now and then seeing where I can, maybe bulk and whatnot. So I'll be for sure tracking my before and afters with this style of eating. I've lent more to carnivore, I've noticed because I just crave it more. And I, I like vegetables sometimes.
I mean, I like festivals. Don't get me wrong, I like vegetables. I love vegetables in some cases, but I don't find the pressure to have to eat them. If I have some and it sounds good, I'm going to eat it, put some butter or put some salt on, great. If I don't have it, I'm not going to make a big deal about it and I'm going to eat my protein and my fat and my animal products and it'll be good to go.
All right. So make sure you look into, describe fall along. I'm also doing a daily vodka so you can kind of see what I'm eating and you'll see how I'm not 100% of carnivore at all by any means. I mix things up. Um, I have sort of strategies when I'm eating out and whatnot and cooking at home. And so, uh, hit that bell button.
You get all those updates. Right now I'm literally checking every single day. So I'm doing a daily food flog, if you will. I'll probably keep doing it to kinda like it. Okay. So I'll see the next one.
