It's common to immediately disregard ideas that challenge one's established worldview. Certain people are interested only in justifying their own position. We should examine the reasoning before dismissing 'crazy' ideas. Wilson is aware that he's going against the mainstream. The world needs more of these 'Galileo' types who challenge assumptions. Not that I always agree, especially about the Christianity stuff.
I'm trying to do the math on what seems like his basic meal-plan outline:
1. 1 serving meat OR sardines, 0.5-1 tbsp fat, 2-3 cups veggies
2. 1 serving meat OR starch+egg, 0.5-1 tbsp fat, 2-3 cups veggies, 10-12 oz carrot juice
3. 1 serving meat, 0.5-1 tbsp fat, 2-3 cups veggies, kelp
So perhaps a sample daily meal looks like:
1. 4 oz sardines + 1 tbsp olive oil + 2 cups onions = 480 calories
2. 1 cup brown rice + 1 egg yolk + 3 cups cauliflower + 10 oz carrot juice = 450 calories
3. 4 oz lamb + 0.5 tbsp butter + 3 cups mustard greens = 440 calories
Only 1370 calories so far, an obviously low number... but fewer are needed with the relaxed lifestyle he recommends.
Fat = 67 g = 24% of g
Carb = 137 g = 50% of g
Protein = 73 g = 26% of g
He says to have only 5-20% fat (by grams), because too much could be cancerous, not detoxifying enough, and feeding parasites.
He says 60-80 g protein is adequate, a pretty standard number. Raising it up to 80 g protein gets us to 1400 calories.
I prefer about 120 g for myself, which gets us up to 1560 calories.
Blue corn is the only other thing he mentioned. I guess that fits if more calories are needed.
I started experimenting with veggies. For now I will just see how adding a little bit to each meal works.
Carrots = yucky
Sweet potatoes = carrot potatoes, slightly less yucky but still sucky
Broccoli = not as bad as expected, kind of nothingness
Cauliflower = also nothingness, but a little better than broccoli
Onions = pretty good, especially with meats
I will experiment more. Looking for 3 good ones. I'm going to try some lamb as well.
