The Health Rabbit Hole Part 3: Let Me Teach You How To Eat

Any blog post that starts off with a Reverend Horton Heat video as a quote, you know it’s going to be good. I almost didn’t use it because I have this weird old fashioned aversion to porn, but the women in it are so comically skanky I figure it doesn’t really count.

Let’s get this over with …

It is a testament to the total corruption and absolute lunacy of modern society that people need to be taught how to eat.

In the 6,000 to 2 million years humans have been on earth – depending on what you believe – not a single person went on a “diet,” as we currently know it, or needed to be taught how to eat until around the 19th century.

Strangely enough this is about the same time the industrial revolution began. If you think this is a coincidence, well, you’re not thinking good enough.

(I need you to think better if you’re going to be on my blog, ok? This is a safe space for really really smart people only. The good news is you HAD to be smart just to end up here. So the fact that you’re even reading this is a good sign.)

All right, you know what, I’m not going to keep you in suspense any longer. Here’s what every human being on the face of this earth should be eating in order to be healthy, happy, and sexy:

All the organic meat/eggs/fish and vegetables you want.

Occasional fruit (nature’s desert)

Some healthy fats found in select nuts, seeds and oils.

That is it, and that is all.

Anything more than that and you may as well challenge the angel of death to a scythe fight.

skytheAnything is better than giving up dairy”

I have traveled to the bottom of the Rabbit Hole, and this is what I found … a bunch of really smart people eating steak and spinach and marveling at their blood work regularly.

Literally I should end this blog post right now. I’m tempted to. You now know everything you need to know. Limit your diet to that stuff, and you’ll lose weight faster than you ever thought possible. You’ll look like a normal human being in no time. You’ll feel like a normal human being in no time.

Were you hoping for something more profound? Fine I’ll give you something profound. Here’s the long version:

Actually … let me just answer every question and address every objection raging through your mind right now.

But first, a disclaimer from Albert Einstein:

If you are out to describe truth, leave elegance to the tailor.

Brace yourself.

“This doesn’t look anything like the government food pyramid at all. I only trust foods that fit in pyramids and are approved by the FDA.”

OK, here’s your new pyramid …


It’s not an FDA approved pyramid, but, like I always say, “F the FDA”. Freakin crooks.

Newsflash … the government food pyramid was not designed to make you healthy. It was created to make special interest groups wealthy. Follow the pyramid “diet” and you will die a slow painful death while handing over all your hard-earned wealth to the processed foods and pharmaceutical industry in the process.

The U.S. food guide was written by the processed foods industry. Our health guides are written by the pharmaceutical industry. Why do you think they serve Jell-O and TV dinners in hospitals? You seriously think the system wants you healthy?

If you’re ever trying to figure out if something is true or not, all you have to do is ask yourself, “Does the government say this is true?” If the answer is “yes” then you know it’s a lie. They are professional full-time liars. However corrupt you might think the government may be, times that by infinity and you may be getting close to the truth.

Read A Fatally Flawed Food Guide written by Luise Light Ed.D., a former U.S.D.A. nutritionist-turned-whistle-blower for more sordid details.

“What about bread? Bread is a staple. Jesus ate bread. Are you telling me you’re smarter than Jesus?”

Jesus ate bread … this is true. But for some reason he didn’t get celiac disease or gluten reactivity which 80% of the human race gets now. Was that because he was superman? No. It’s because the wheat was untainted by man-unkind.

Unfortunately for us, the bread he ate is no longer available to the human race. You see, our brilliant scientists started crossbreeding wheat in the 1950’s to produce new strains that would make hardier, shorter, better growing plants. This in effect served to genetically modify the world’s entire supply of wheat, thereby leaving the inventor of said crossbreeding process with a Nobel Peace Prize and the rest of us with f’d up guts.

Here’s a short list of genetically-altered-wheat-eating symptoms:

– Osteoporosis or osteopenia

– Tooth enamel defects

– Vitamin K deficiency

– Central and peripheral nervous system disease

– Dementia, and impairments in mental functioning that could cause or aggravate autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADD or schizophrenia

– Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH), a skin condition that causes intense itching and blistering

– Anemia of various types

– Infertility, and earlier menopause

– Organ disorders

– Weight loss or gain

– Depression

– Fatigue

Have any of those?

Read Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis for a full breakdown on this.

“I know white flour is bad. But whole grains are good for you. Why isn’t whole grains on your ridiculously short list of edible foods? Rice is a grain. Are you telling China to starve?”

First of all, there is not one single nutrient, fiber, mineral or vitamin in grains that are not also contained in meats, fish, fruits and vegetables in infinitely greater amounts. So we can start from the foundation that, even if grains were good for you, they’re not essential. Compared to meat, fish, fruits and vegetables, grains are extraordinarily poor sources of vitamins and minerals.

Second of all, grains contain lectins, phytates, and other anti-nutrients which do bad things to you.

Finally of all, grains spike your blood sugar and insulin. Just two slices of whole grain bread spike your blood sugar bigger and faster than a full tablespoon of processed table sugar.

Long story short, if you want dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, global inflammation, a muffin top and depression … keep eating grains.

And yes, China needs to stick to fish.

“Red meat is bad for you. It raises your cholesterol which causes heart disease.”

No, it’s not. And even if it did raise your cholesterol, what’s so bad about that? Oh wait, I forgot you’ve been brainwashed by the system. If everyone believes it, it must be true, right? I wonder who stands to profit from you believing high cholesterol is so bad for you.  Hhmmm …

I’m not going to get into this here. If you have some weird psychological issues with cholesterol and want to resolve them without medication or even caring, watch the documentary Statin Nation. And if you’re taking statins? Well, I won’t give you medical advice, but … you’re wasting your money.

Here’s the trailer:

And again, I eat pure organic red meat every single day. I will refer you back to my blood work for my current cholesterol levels:

Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 1.39.33 PM

Red meat isn’t the enemy. Conventional red meat where the animals are cramped into a stall and fed a steady diet of genetically modified wheat, hormones and antibiotics is the enemy.

You have to unplug man. You gotta stop swallowing everything they tell you on TV. You have to start asking yourself  “Why?” WHY are people saying this or that? Follow the trail. It almost always leads to money and corruption.

“Why can’t I eat beans?”

Because they make you fart. That’s your body saying, “I can’t digest this you moron. Stop putting these things in me or I will kill you and everyone else in the room.”

Admittedly they’re not the worst thing in the world for you, but they’re far from the best. And I only allow the best inside myself. lol. That should be the slogan of a condom commercial or something. [note to self: possibly take this comment out before final edit]

Without getting too technical they contain toxins and cause inflammation. They have some protein, but so what? You don’t need bean protein, unless of course …

“I’m a vegan. And I want to physically strangle you right now.”

That’s probably because you’re malnourished and fatigued. That tends to induce feelings of violence. A lot of famous mass murderers were vegans and vegetarians:

Pol Pot – vegan
Adolf Hitler – vegetarian
Charles Manson – vegan
Genghis Kahn – vegetarian
Van Der Graf – vegan
Anthony Robbins – vegetarian (he hasn’t killed anyone yet, but I’m keeping an eye on him)
The Antichrist – vegetarian
Cain, the world’s first murderer – vegetarian

I got that list from I’m not even kidding. Really interesting site worth perusing for at least several hours.

A lot of terrorists are vegetarians too which I didn’t realize until Googling it just now. The British government literally puts you on a terrorist watch list if you request a vegetarian meal on a flight. I am not kidding. They also probably put you on a watch list if you google “are terrorists vegetarians?” So I may be screwed if I ever go to Britain.

Speaking of Cain, why did God like Abel’s animal sacrifice more than Cain’s vegetable sacrifice?

I will tell you.

Because God eats meat!

What … do you think he had the Jews sacrifice all those animals to him for no reason??? He was chowin’ down man! I also know he eats meat because he’s a man. And men eat meat. Period.

There are four types of vegans I want to address right now so get your indignation ready if you are one:

Animal Rights Vegans

While misguided, you bug me way less than people who do this for health reasons. I applaud your having a cause, but just be aware that you’re sacrificing your own health and life for those animals. If you think those cows and chickens are more valuable than you, that’s cool. But just make sure you’re conscious of the fact that that’s what you’re really saying by doing this.

“I’m worth less than a pig.” Maybe try saying that out loud a few times.

Environmentalist Vegans

Same thing as the animal rights people, but you’re worth less than a tree.

I could prove this to you if I had the time, but you are being DUPED by the radical left. “Planet first” may be the dumbest phrase ever coined by the communists and filtered into mainstream consciousness I’ve ever heard.

Eating an organic burger from a local sustainable farm isn’t destroying the rain forest. Eating one from McDonalds may be, but not the ones I eat.

I like the environment too. But killing myself with tofu (a genetically modified soybean) isn’t the answer. Think a little deeper and don’t just swallow all the B.S. from Ted Talks. I revert back to what I said about the government; if they’re pushing the agenda …

Regular Vegans

Why is it that you have to supplement B12? I mean it’s an absolutely essential vitamin, and yet it’s only found in one place … animal meat. Isn’t that what’s called “a clue”?

Did you know that B6 from plant foods alone isn’t absorbed the same way it is from animal foods?

Get a full vitamin/mineral/amino acid deficiency blood panel done. It’s not cheap. The results of that should be enough to shock you back to normalcy (unless of course you’re not actually doing this for health reasons but rather from a lack of purpose in your life).

Or I’ll just save you the money and tell you in advance what it will say. Let me take a big deep breath …

– You’re probably low in ferritin, a critical iron transportation protein

– Your WBCs and RBCs either are or will become low

– You’ll have elevated homocysteine if you don’t already

– Your plasma amino acids will be tanked

– Your taurine will be crazy low

– Your carnitine is or will become clinically deficient

– Your glucose will be high if you’ve been vegan any length of time

– Your HA1C will be increased (which increases the risk for diabetes)

– Your thyroid is or will become sluggish

– Omega 3s EPA and DHA will typically be low because you need a certain amino acid only found in animal meat to convert it

– And to top it off your insulin will probably be jacked. Which is why you have that belly fat more than likely.

I could tell you how I know all that, but then I’d have to kill you.

By the way, this what your belly should look like if you’re eating right …

Not showing off. Just giving you material for your vision board. Relax.

Now, you can say, “none of what you’re saying is true,” (except for my abs – those are undeniable), but unless you put your big boy pants on and go get that blood work?? You. Are. SPECULATING! I don’t care how much you’ve studied, how many documentaries you’ve watched, who agrees with you, how passionately you believe whatever crazy thing it is you believe, what your gut feeling and instincts are telling you, or any other thing. All that matters is what does your body say?

A person can say, “my car runs just fine” all they want. But unless they take it in for a diagnostic test and a “once over?” They might just find themselves stranded on the side of the road one day with a blown transmission.

Here’s the test so you can go prove me right and give yourself a few extra years on earth …

You’ll need a referral from a participating doctor. You can find one here …

You can also try as well. I’ve used both.


Side Note: Why do vegans call themselves vegans? Why aren’t they just human beings who happen to eat a vegan diet? Notice the weird identity thing?

And why are they always preaching and trying to convert people to their way of thinking and getting angry when they read things like this blog post? You could write a whole book about the evils of meat eaters and it wouldn’t affect me in the least. I’d laugh as long as you were being as funny as I am in this article. That’s probably not possible, but I’d still laugh just because I could care less what anyone says about my food. I’m not my food.

Hhmmm …

Let’s think here … why would someone identify with their food and neurotically try to talk people into joining them on their crusade … unless they’re worshipping it?

By God I believe we’re on to something here.

You’ll notice this is unique to vegans and vegetarians, which suggests propaganda when you really break it all the way down (which I’m compelled to do with any and all things apparently).

For example, I eat meat, but I don’t go around saying, “I’m a meat eater” or “I’m a meatatarian.” No, “I’m Preston Ely. I’m a child of God and much too important to identify with something as commonplace as food. I have bigger fish to fry. And eat.” : )

Christian Vegans

I’m not going to say anything myself here. I’ll just let the bible speak for itself:

“Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.”

– Genesis 9:3

I could just stop there. God just basically commanded you to eat meat. Lol. What more is there to talk about?

“One person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats vegetables only.”

– Romans 14:2

“Get up, Peter. Kill, and eat.”

– Acts 10:13 

“Do you have anything here to eat? They gave him [Jesus] a piece of broiled fish, and he ate it in their presence.”

– Mark 16:41-43

Jesus was not a vegan. He obeyed strict Jewish dietary law, which included A LOT of meat (even more so after he changed the laws allowing the consumption of all animals).

Strap on your WWJD bracelet and let’s follow the Master shall we?

Moving right along …

“Raw, organic, cultured dairy is good for you. Jordan Rubin said so.”

Jordan Rubin is selling you something. A lot of something’s actually. His supplement company, Garden of Life, was recently purchased for $35 million with yearly sales over $50 million.

Bottom line … 97% of the human race is allergic to dairy. Period. That’s not speculation. That’s the results of a private study done analyzing the allergy tests of around 10,000 people.

The first step in the direction of health and homeostasis is always an advanced food allergy test. The second step is to simply stop eating whatever your body is telling you it hates. You would think more doctors would be telling people this.

The word allergy comes from the Greek word meaning altered energy. Allergies can cause the body to malfunction, inhibit healing, and prevent nutrient absorption.

Positive you’re not allergic to anything? So was I. So was my wife. So is everyone.

See if you have any of these common food-allergy symptoms:

allergiesWeird … this reads like a description of the average modern American. Hhmmm …

Do this test … or this one …

I think you need a doctor’s referral for both if I’m not mistaken. Lists of participating doctors should be on their sites.

“You accidentally left out Coca Cola, ice cream, pizza, Snicker’s bars, pop corn, coffee, Sweet-n-Low, table salt and like a hundred other essential foods. This is AMERICUH. Home of the Ding Dong and land of the Twinkie, son. Don’t go pushin no European propagandy on us ya hear?”

I’m not sure how you made it on this blog, but you’re not quite ready for it yet. Come back in a few years.

By the way, for everyone else’s edification, coffee is horrible for you. Switch to espresso. Better for your digestive system and less caffeine. People in Italy drink 12 espressos a day and drive Ferraris.

“I’ve tried something similar to the diet you’re proposing, but it’s too expensive.”

Touche. It is indeed the most expensive diet on the planet. Start with baby steps. Do conventional meats and veggies. Even if its chicken backs every meal. Do what you have to do. Just cut out the dairy, gluten, and processed sugar – that’s the most important thing.

Try local CSA’s (Community Supported Agriculture) and local farms to find cheap organic meat and produce.

Grow as much of your own vegetables as you can. I do.

Use this as an incentive to go out there and get some dang money man. It’s not rocket science. But it takes courage and WORK. I know plenty of very average people of average means eating strict organic diets. You can do it. But you gotta believe you can do it.

Ok, blog post over. For a more detailed explanation on the extraordinarily uncomplicated meat/vegetables/healthy fats eating plan buy this book …

Here are some highlights from the book and personal inside tips before I abandon you:

– don’t eat anything genetically modified (mainly corn and soy) or you’ll go insane and die young. See proof HERE.

– don’t eat processed foods or you’ll go insane and die young. Proof: turn on the news or just start paying attention in general

– don’t use table sugar or table salt (pink Himalayan rock salt is best). Stop needing things to be so tasty in general. Retrain your taste buds to their natural state. Eat to live, not the other way around.

– eat fast food if you hate yourself

– your body wants 10-12 servings of vegetables a day. One of those can be fruit. Juicing, protein shakes and green smoothies make this easy.

– order all your steaks from this company … Best steaks you’ve ever had in your life.

– order all your non-gmo-corn-fed free range chicken from this company … This is one of two places on earth you can get chicken that was NOT fed genetically modified corn. You are what your chicken eats. Ever heard that saying? It’s new.

– this is the best fish oil on earth:

– these are the two multi vitamins I take: Propax and K Pax Pro

– I take every single supplement on this site besides maybe one (calcium):

They are the best in the world. No question.

“But Preston, can’t you get all the nutrients you need from the food you eat?” Sure. But that’s like saying I should limit my racing car’s fuel to gasoline when my competitors are using gas + nitrous. I don’t use supplements as supplements. I use them as turbo chargers. For example, the green/white tea pills on the pastoreformulations site is the antioxidant equivalent of drinking 24 cups of green tea and 6 cups of white tea. So drink tea if you want, but I’m on a spaceship compared to you. I don’t have time to sip things.

– I’ll bet you a thousand dollars you’re deficient in magnesium. Take 3 of these in the morning and three at night:

– this is the best protein powder on the market:

– this is the best greens powder on the market:
(sorry, Green Vibrance, but … you suck)

– don’t buy any supplement or product that contains ingredients from China. It’s the filthiest country on the planet (hence my ugly divorce with Green Vibrance)

– don’t use any almond or coconut milk with the ingredient carrageenan in it. Unless you like cancer. By the way that limits you to NO coconut milk (unless you make it yourself) and maybe one or two sketchy brands of almond milk. Me personally, I stick with water for my shakes and smoothies.

– Glass bottled Mountain Valley in currently the only water I trust. I drink it like water. will transform your life. It’s like Adderall and Ambien except healthy for you and you don’t have to pay a doctor off to get to it. I could not live without Power Off.

– These are the best amino acids in all five dimensions of existence. No one in their right mind will ever dispute this: I take eight pills 30 minutes before working out and another eight later in the day 30 minutes before a meal.

– Take CoQ10 from Pure Encapsulations no matter what your blood work says. Trust me.

– My new favorite supplement:  It’s the equivalent of eating like a thousand tomatoes in one pill. I hate tomatoes. This was like Christmas discovering this.

Alright, that’s it. I’m done with you. Wanna argue with me? Do it in a comment below.

    Preston, do you still make that same morning smoothie?

    Ya know… the one from Wake Up Wealthy?

    If not, what’s a better alternative?

  • Mike Lou

    One of the most eye-opening, informative, and hilarious health related articles I have EVER read!!! And I have subscribed to numerous health e-mags for many years!!!

  • Aaron V.

    WOW! I too was journeying “The Health Rabbit Hole”. I’m 21 and I had a thought that change my view of eating food. You actually mentioned it which made me laugh and say “It’s like he read my mind” lol that we humans eat to survive and not eat because it taste good.

    I’d rather eat to survive (a healthy life) on a daily basis but what if you get invited to a party or something? I choose not to be a jerk and relax a bit by eating what everyone else is eating. After a messily 1 plate I start to see almost everyone complain of stomach problems and being too full to fit another bite. In the meantime I’m on my second to third plate happily chowing down. That’s when you hear the words of confirmation “Aaron how can you eat so much and not get FAT”. I think to myself before I respond “I eat healthy on a daily basis and choose the feel good for life option” or I respond by saying “Idk I guess it’s my GENES” 😀 and they believe me DERP…

    My body is not so out of whack that I can actually process the hard stuff they’re eating. Why? Maybe it’s because I can fight it off long enough that on the next day when I fall back into my healthy eating habits. I replenish the good and it feels like it never happened.

    All I can say Preston is that you’ve saved me from a lifetime of searching what true healthy eating “really” is all about. You are knowledgeable and for the first time ever I feel optimistic that this “Food Pyramid” scheme will soon be over.

    “My name is Aaron and I Roger… Roger… you loud and clear Preston” You a mudafukin SwooOle Beast! lol

    Thanks again

    P.S Do you know of any cure/remedies for Vitiligo. I have Localized Vitiligo (white patches of skin) since I was born. Just wondering if you do. I’m looking into oxygen therapy… I might have a fungus… that plagued me since birth. IDK wondering if you can steer me on the right path.

  • Robert

    Totally switching my diet. It’s going to be hard giving up my beer. After all, I was a sailor for 10 years in the military…

  • Matt

    Hey Preston-

    You know I’ll always listen to your health advice- As I’ve “testified” at different times, including on the Wake Wealthy boards, your dietary recommendations led me to “easily” lose over 60 pounds in less than months- Between February to April 2012 actually- Sorry to hear about your divorce from Green Vibrance, I’ll finish my current cannister and look into the Nanogreens- I also drink the morning smoothie 4 times a week or so, interesting to hear your turn on almond milk as well-

    So I’ll make some adjustments, nothing difficult for me, I’m already used to eating what you’re recommending here, but to anyone out there that’s wondering- This is the diet to pursue! And you don’t have to be a millionaire to do it (although I think you do if you want to take ALL of the supplements Preston’s taking LOL!)

    Thanks again Preston- You DEFINITELY know what you’re talking about- And to everyone else- Stop eating that darn bread and dairy! (Oh yeah, you also will need to set aside some extra cash to buy yourself new clothes in a couple of months- Let me tell you, that is the best shopping experience you’ll ever have!)

  • Theobromine

    I was a vegetarian and/or mostly vegie (fish or chicken) for over 20 years. My skin was dry. My hair fell out. I was anemic. I was depressed. I was constipated. I was FAT – from too much dairy and grains. My brain was slow and foggy – didn’t remember easily, HEAR or SEE good, or pay attention well. I brought up vegetarian kids using the best available nutritional TEXTBOOKS as guidelines. They did great.

    But I wasn’t aging as well as I wanted too. Not enough protein or iron. But I stuck to my guns and didn’t eat meat until I met really healthy smart people that ate LOTS of meat and didn’t have cancer or guilt or anemia. Hmmm.

    After eating meat for ten years again I can say I feel youmger, my hair is long and shiny, my skin is better, and I have more attention, energy and motivation than before, in my thirties.

    So, I believe you. And I am in the process of ditching the grains and dairy. Gonna lose those stubborn pounds that I see now are from those.

    As long as chocolate is a cocao NUT – I am all good with your food pyramid. 🙂

  • Ravi

    Thanks for the article. Very insightful. I’ve always been a proponent of a diet like your caste it just made sense. What are your beliefs on a necessary carb up once a week? I have read that when on a diet like you have stated for more than 3 days your metabolism slows down basically halting fat loss and it is advised to have a high carb day once a week. What is your belief on that?

  • Milena

    Thanks for exported facts for foods. I laughed several times. Many exactly selected info. Man eats to be alive and healthy and food must to responsible with necessary ingredients for that.

  • Tom

    This is hands-down the greatest article ever written. You should eat meat simply based on the fact that the Antichrist is a vegetarian. Evil can not abide by meat, apparently.

  • Constance

    I think you have been eating too much animal flesh. I have been eating a hybrid vegetarian/vegan diet for 30 years and have developed sensitivity to gluten so now gluten free. I have none of the deficiencies you outline, have no history of terrorist activity, have not killed anyone, and have never tried to convert or criticize anyone else for their dietary choices. Many of the sources you quote have been scientifically refuted..
    You are are real estate mastermind. Stick to what you know!

    • Preston Ely

      you dont know you dont have any deficiencies because you have not taken any of those tests I mentioned. The tests are $2,500. Go take one and send me an apology afterwards. And I will stick to whatever if the heck I want!

  • Bruce

    I’d agree with most of what you’d have to say here(even though my abs look a little better than yours but my eyes tend to be drawn more to your wife’s abs for some reason), and you’re obviously very sure about it, but aren’t you the same guy who was very sure (in 2010) that sometime in the next 6-36 months that the economy was going to collapse and that the price of gold was going to go through the roof? It’s 30% lower 4 years later. I’m just sayin’.

      • Bruce

        Yikes, I didn’t realize that my last name would be published. Could you either change the name to ‘Bruce V’ or remove the comment all together?


          • Bruce

            I’m asking nicely and for good reason (even if it might not seem so). Thanks in advance. Sorry for the trouble. I work in a sensitive position and am requesting again that my last name not appear on your site. -Thanks, I really appreciate it.

  • Loan

    Hi, first time I read your stuff. Very good stuff. Would not have agreed with you if I had not first read the book Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes. By they way, I want to look younger, do you any recommendation?

  • Karen Konzak

    Unbelievable! Best thing I’ve read in forever! I laughed, I cried…well maybe not too much crying…lol! Excellent info, will be forwarding this to everyone. One question…love the resources, but I had another company I’ve been investigating and would love your feedback if you have any info about them. I have been interested in finding it about products from Biotrust Nutritionals, they sound great and seem to address many issues that we are dealing with. Are you familiar with them, and if so, how do they rate compared to the resources to have already suggested? Would they be something I could benefit from in lieu of, or in addition to the products you’ve shared here? Thanks for all the great info!

    “People in Italy drink 12 espressos a day and drive Ferraris.”

    fantastic post.

    i have fallen off the organic lifestyle and need to climb back up. i have put on 30 lbs of flab in the last 12 months.

    was planning on starting “next week”. now that pizza tonight does not sound so appealing.

    THANK YOU for the well timed inspiration targeted just for me.

    So what juicer do you use/recommend? I have a Champion which is great for carrots, cabbage and maybe beets but not so great for leafy greens. I am thinking about getting the latest Vitamix which juices everything you put in it but does that kind of juicing oxidize and ruin the vitamins in the vegetables? What do you think?

  • kai

    Interested in learning more about the Green Vibrance divorce. You used to swear by GV. At first glance it doesn’t appear NanoGreens has all the probiotics contained in GV. It is something I will try. Thanks for the updated info.


  • val K

    Great stuff as always Preston. I used to make the morning shake all the time, i see that you have switched up some of the ingredients and no longer use some stuff (ie. almond milk and green vibrance). What is your new recipe for the amazing Morning Super Shake?

    Thanks Preston!

    What are you like 28 years old, looks like you could use a shave and a hair cut (two bits). Talk to me when you are pushing 60 and you will not be so spry, so enjoy your youth we all have. Age catches up to all of us

    • Preston Ely

      38. And I will look like this when I am an old phogy like you! Keep doing what you’re doing. It’s not working, and apparently you like it that way.

    • Dorie

      Marcelo disse:Não sei se já foi dito nos comentários acima, mas tem um bonde passando que não seria impossível pegarmos (se bem que duvido que pegaremos): o caça de 4.5a geração da Coréia do Sul com a Indonésia. Acho que estamos equiparados à Coréia em tecnologia aeronáutica e bem melhor que a Indonésia. Seria uma parceria entre iguais e um avião novo. Para caça tampão, os M200-9 dos EAU dariam conta por uns 20 anos.

  • Gary

    Yes the Vitamix is a super high speed juicer/blender that turns the whole vegetable/fruit into juice – no separating anything, you get the fiber and all. So it is not like the compression (Champion) or spinning type of juicers. VERY easy to clean up afterwards so I have been told.

  • Priscilla

    Hi Preston! Amazing article! Can’t wait to bring my health and fitness to the next level. I thought I was safe with my raw milk, oatmeal, brown rice and quinoa

  • kahihira stephane

  • Michael

    This was awesome and just what I needed. My study and implementation of it have begun. Appreciate the part on the almond milk and the Green Vibrance. Thanks for everything Preston you are a blessing.

  • Michael Campbell

    Preston, awesome article!! To help us understand better, could you post something like a typical eating schedule that you follow? Do you eat the exact same things each day? Can you eat as much meat as you want or is there a limit?

    • Preston Ely

      breakfast: protein shake with blueberries
      snack: green smoothie (water, spinach, strawberries, pineapple)
      lunch: salmon, mixed veggies, 4 brazilian nuts
      snack: veggie juice
      dinner: chicken, broccoli, salad, 2 brazilian nuts

        • Preston Ely

          my routine is different than most because I have a back injury. I train and rehab three hours a day. extensive stretching, weights, boxing for cardio.

            Along with every little thing which seems to be bunildig inside this subject matter, a significant percentage of opinions are generally relatively exciting. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, because I can not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It appears to everybody that your opinions are generally not entirely rationalized and in actuality you are generally yourself not entirely confident of your assertion. In any event I did appreciate looking at it.

  • Pavel

    Hi Preston I am agree with you ,my grammar not good , but any way I Tried to sheer my opinion with you about terrorist and helth . some people don’t understand what they doing . For example , one person was anounsed Messiax in Praga latter hi was anonsed lake anemi of cilivisation and humanity I am not judge and don’t tryi to changid some things. only I want to warning . In this case in charge who tetch and support him . And his problem was: witch God his fallow. Very important spiritual helth and what future people choose . Because the end of wrestling very soon. sorry my grammar not good , but i think you understand my message .

  • tony zamberlin

    Hey Preston this is great stuff!! A couple questions:

    If you are not allergic to milk would you still recommend not doing any dairy?

    If so how do you get the nutrition that’s in milk?

    Also what about bread? how do you get whats in that ?

    • Preston Ely

      no dairy. period.

      milk doesn’t have vitamin D. its vitamin d FORTIFIED. you get vitamin D from the
      sun and leafy green vegetables. Calcium you get from vegetables as well.

      everything in bread is in fruit and vegetables

  • Cory

    Preston, I just finished reading all three of your “Health Rabbit Hole” posts and enjoyed them thoroughly. You are definitely a whole-wit (as opposed to a half-wit). And you are probably right, but I think you are just paranoid about aging. It really isn’t that bad. I’ve been retired since 2005 and am enjoying every minute of it. Except for the reduced income. ;0)

    I’m 68 going on 29 and have lived most of my life on pasta, pizza, banana bread, and chocolate chip cookies with milk, and real butter, not margarine, and I’m 100% healthy, very rarely have a cold and haven’t had the flu since I was in the Army (pre-1982). I worked at a desk up to 16 hours a day most of my working life and take a hike or bike ride on Saturday’s for my week’s exercise. I haven’t gone to a gym since college. True, I don’t smoke, drink alcohol, or use drugs, and I stay away from carbonated beverages and anything with artificial sweeteners (which I believe cause diabetes and obesity), among other things.

    I drink plenty of chlorinated tap water, and various kinds of tea made with that same tap water, never drank coffee ’cause I hate the smell. Though I’m not a vegetarian and eat lots of cheese, yogurt, and other dairy products, I seldom eat red meat or chicken because of the hormones they pump into them. I’m big on fish and shell fish. The only organic foods I eat are those I grow in my own garden. Unlike you I love all veggies and fruits (except lima beans, black-eyed peas, and okra).

    My parents ate everything and both smoked, overate, and my dad was an alcoholic. Neither of them made any effort to take care of themselves and were in pretty bad shape by the time they hit their sixties, but they both lived to their nineties. Since I haven’t developed any of their bad habits, I expect to live well past 100 unless I get completely fed up with what’s going on in this country, go on a rampage, murder a bunch of liberal politicians and commit suicide by cop. Just joking. I think.

    My entire food budget is around $150 a month and the only supplements I take are a multivitamin / mineral compound I buy at Sam’s, Norwegian Cod Liver Oil capsules and Red Yeast Rice capsules (to keep my HDL and LDL cholesterol in balance) which I buy online.

    Keep these posts coming. Laughter is the best medicine, as they say. I may laugh myself to death from all your shenanigans.

    Joy and abundance,

    P.S. I got hungry writing that, so I think I’ll go have a bowl of my home-cooked veggie stew and a chocolate-chip cookie.

    • Preston Ely

      some people stay naturally healthier than others. the question isn’t “how healthy are you currently based on your apparently horrible diet and exercise plan?” but rather “how healthy COULD YOU BE if you did what I said you should be doing?” However good you feel and long you will live … you could always feel better and live longer. It’s all relative. And again … you could have a heart attack tomorrow. You never know. You say you’re healthy but you’re not basing that on any real scientific fact. Youre basing it on your feelings and probably a routine b.s. “check up” from a quack doctor.

    Par Excellence! Why is Vitamix World Headquarters in my home town of Olmsted Falls, Ohio? Why do I still use a 7 year old Magic Bullet? Why is Bowling Green’s Mascot a Falcon? Terrific Trilogy from the lip of the hole through the convoluted and delusional inner-workings and passageways down to the base of the base-ment, to that flipped switch of enlighten-ment!

    I divorced fast food 3 years back when Pavlov McDonald was able to infiltrate my brain and command me to make a spontaneous jaunt to pay a few FRN’s for what they market as egg this and egg that. There must have been an out of body experience as I watched myself pull off to a side road and devour that mess like a rabid raccoon on a moonless night, or was it a full moon? Donzo

    I’m stoked you dove in the hole like a warrior collecting and dissecting valid books and articles and transmuting them into tangible resources with your own style of humor. Big takeaway: Blood Work – At age 33, I’m about 50% in on my own discoveries, big thanks for filling in some remaining blind spots. Health, Wealth, and Service P.E.

  • tony zamberlin

    Ok thanks. In that case since you recommend no beans.. what vegetables would you do? Also I love corn so is there anyway I can do that maybe buying the organic kind? Thanks!

  • Robert Hunter

    THANK YOU!! I’ve been waiting for this. For some reason I never got part three, but found it online while looking up something else. I was destined to find it. Again, thanks!!

  • Michael Campbell

    Preston, is there a limit to how much meat you are allowed to eat on this diet? Is chicken or beef better for you?

    • Preston Ely

      not really. eat till you’re full. not sure which meat is better for you to be perfectly honest. but I’ll find out.
      def beef if the chicken is fed GMO corn

  • Jeralin

    Thank you for taking the time and sharing so much great and knowledgable information! America needs to get educated. We need to raise our new generations with the correct knowledge so that they can build a better and stronger America. We need to build leaders instead of followers.. America is getting lazier by the minute, therefore it tends to go with what is easier and what they think is more conventient in their limited minds.

    I’m started a new health journey and is aiming to become even more awesome!! Thank you once again for this amazing information.

  • Kevin Meissner

    Thank you for this blog Preston. Your blog has an error. The book of Mark Bible reference should be Mark 6 not Mark 16. God bless!

  • tony zamberlin

    Where do you get beef jerky at? all of it has high as crap sale content is all I can find!

  • tony zamberlin

    I’ve already implemented this 10 days ago and feeling a lot better!! 🙂 I cut out dairy and processed sugar altogether accept 1-2 meals a week I cheat ;). I’ve cut out adding any additional salt or sugar to anything I eat. Doing all the multi’s fish oils and amino acids I need. (spoke to a dr. in California about this and she’s got me on the right stuff). Also just bought the c0q10 you recommended. Thanks! Eating alof of grilled chicken salad fruits and veggies now as well. Just need to eat more at home instead of out.

      These smart meters are just antoher perversion of Psychiatric Mind Control. By invasion of each citizens space he or she has no castle where he is King/Queen.The intent is that of socialism, to interfere and manipulate and control every citizen on every tiny little thing, to then mold and coerce behavior and implement brainwashing. Socialism is the stepping stone to Communism. Communism is the implementation of slavery.There is no actual communist political party it is just a crminal gang, which operates as an Itelligence Unit. Thats how they remain hidden.The enemy are just criminals that believe Man is an animal, thanks to the input of Psychiatry, psychology, social science and Eugenics.

  • Vanesa

    Great posts!!….Pretty intense diet and I do see the importance. Do you ever go out to eat then? If so what places do you trust? And I live in Tampa so this would benefit me. 🙂

  • Marissa

    Oh no you didn’t!!!

    I absolutely love your blogs..You are an immensely talented writer and generally tell it like it is! Also, the diet or lifestyle change is definitely a good one. Kudos to you for that..
    However, I’m going to have to dispute the validity of your abs picture. There are numerous ways to get that effect including Photoshop and or airbrushing..Many videos on how to accomplish this are on YouTube.
    Kind of difficult to get six pack abs like your picture shows and still have a spare tire around the oblique area.

    • Preston Ely

      if you don’t believe that picture then dont believe anything I wrote. thats the dumbest comment on this whole thread

  • Gerry Johnson

    Hah! Horton Heat’s ‘Hotties’ aren’t skanky! They’re a spoof on Bettie Page/pin-up, sexy and silly. They’re in on the joke, and so are we; eye of the beholder, baby! Thanks for all the serious advice, cheeky rascal that you are. And thanks for boiling it down. Nobody wants to read pages of research. So how much DO you spend monthly on all the supplements you eat?

    • Vicheth

      Pleasant submit. I know a thing extra demnading on various weblogs daily. It’s going to often be stimulating to examine articles from other writers and practice a little bit a product from their keep. I’d prefer to use some together with the content material on my blog site regardless if you never intellect. Natually I’ll provide you with a website link on the internet blog page. Thanks for sharing.

  • Adam Kipnes

    been doing this for 6 weeks and am down 12 pounds and have tons of energy and feel great all day. And I just read this today! Will be in kick ass shape and a matter of months! Love it

  • DougO

    Great Article Brother P – I appreciate you sharing all your research and sources. It’s great to have people like yourself sharing that so that we may investigate for ourselves

  • jeff

    Just to let you know preston, you are right about 90% of what you are talking about except your vegetarian hating nonsense.

    I am with you on the processed foods, gluten etc. But I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years and I am in excellent and radiant health.

    Is there a right way and a wrong way to be vegetarian of course.

    No just making sure its organic meat does not make it ok to eat.

    You don’t have to be so disrespectful towards vegetarians and act like your diet is better and vegetarians cannot be healthy.

    Your also 1005 WRONG on your statement that the only source of b12 is from animals. There are plenty of vegetarian source.

    Some vegtarians dont eat healthy its true but all this Bullshit about vegetarians being wrong for what they do is total garbage. Plenty of very healthy vegan athletes and body builders. I do soy and hemp protein along with spirulina. Those are natures complete and fat free proteins in case you did not know. Your problem is you know alot but you dont know it all and you have an attitude like you do. You simply do not have the full picture on vegetarian diets. As far as healthy fats some of the only ones you need are high in omega 3s and MCT like coconut and olive oils.

    I could take you school and back on that one but you so arrogant I doubt you would listen.

    Ever heard of Frank Medrano and many other people? Get a clue preston your wrong on vegetarianism and in fact eating 50% raw or more is fabulous for you. your full of shit preston you need to learn a bit more before you run your mouth against us.

  • Marc

    Love your writing style…. On all subjects. One thing I am wondering about the blood tests and the differnt level and and values that are the goal, based on your writings…. Who came up with these numbers? The same people who made up all the other so called perfect world “healthy” goals?

    Don’t get me wrong I 100% buy in the you are what you eat… Caveman, natural idea. 100% even if I don’t do it…. I know I should save money too, but I spend way more than I save and just plan on maligning more….

    But who created this master hit list you have so effectively achieved ?

  • Rob


    You are totally wrong about meats. All meat is acidic and causes inflammation in your body. Meat contains uric acid which is definitely acidic. All chronic diseases thrive in an acidic body.

  • Allison

    Hi! I am in the process of revamping my way of eating / supplementing, thanks for not making red meat evil!!
    But curious, have you tried any of the nutrametrix products? I am loving OPC3 and their digestive line.
    Would love feedback before trying too many more of their products.
