You DO need protein. Without it, you die. We’re not making that up. It’s that important. There are 9 essential amino acids that every human being needs and the only way to get them in enough abundance is to eat adequate protein so your body can break it down into these critical building blocks of your whole damn body. You need them not just to get big or ripped, but to do… everything.
Protein is like the construction crew that builds and repairs your body. It's the "muscle" behind your muscles, helping them grow and stay strong, but you probably already knew that. What you may not know is that protein helps you stay healthy by supporting your immune system and keeping your hormones and enzymes in check.
If you’re even slightly deficient in protein, almost everything your body does will be done in subpar fashion. You’ll be weak, tired, lifeless, and the opposite of optimal.
You DO need fat, contrary to what certain organizations who shall remain nameless will tell you. They’re stuck on bad 1970s pseudoscience. In fact, like protein, without it you die. Fat is a carrier of the most critical nutrients for your body. Without it, you can’t absorb the other good stuff you shove down your throat, like fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, an K. In your body, fat stores energy for later use when you need it. But that's not all - fat is also essential for brain function, hormone production, organ protection, and insulation to keep your body warm. Not getting enough causes joint problems, dry skin, garbage immune function, cognitive impairment, and a host of other terrible maladies, some of which are too gross to talk about… even for us.
Plus, it’s delicious as hell.
The aforementioned nameless organizations will have you believe that carbs are essential. They’re not. There’s no such thing as an essential carbohydrate. They’ll tell you carbs are the body and brain’s preferred source of energy. They’re not. That award goes to fat, and there is no close second. They’ll tell you carbs are in important source of nutrients. They’re not. There’s nothing in carbs that are not far more abundant and bioavailable in fat and protein. They’ll tell you that carbs are good for your heart. There is no substantive evidence that that is even remotely true.
They won’t tell you that there are robust cultures in colder climates, like Alaska and Siberia that have been thriving since the beginning of human civilization that have never had local sources of carbohydrates. They won’t tell you that carbs in abundance contribute to metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity, and a host of other terrible maladies that, again, too nasty to mention… even for us. Why won’t they tell you? We’ll leave that question for the conspiracy theorists to answer.
We’re not saying you should never eat carbs. What we are saying, however, is that there is no debate when it comes to whether they’re a biological necessity. They’re just not. So IF you choose to eat carbs, EARN them FIRST.
