There Is No Perfect Diet

Food is not just calories or energy; food is information and instructions that upgrade or downgrade your biology with every bite.

Think of it like code that programs your software. Your hardware is your genes. Your software is how those genes are turned on or off. Food regulates not only your genes but also your hormones, like insulin, testosterone, estrogen, and thyroid. It alters your brain chemistry, producing happy chemicals, and it can even trigger addictive patterns.

So how can you personalize your diet (and nutritional needs) to optimize your health?

In today’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, I talk about how your diet and lifestyle influence your genes and my top strategies for weight loss and optimal health. Find the full episode on your favorite podcast app.

    Blah blah blah blah blah. We need to eat low carb, high fat, with lots of meat. I eat one meal a day following this plan and have lost 179 pounds doing so.

      Why do you say “we need to eat….”. You need to. That’s what this very short video was about.

    • Theresa says:

      @Just Ingrid I know what the Proper Human Diet is. If you want to eat plants, MORE POWER TO YOU. I won’t because it is not what we are meant to eat. Don’t listen to me, Listen to Dr. Ken Berry.


    Cutting out sugar and junk food works for Everybody.

    Perfectly said. I tried the carnivore diet and lost too much weight and had terrible cramping so I added white rice, plantains, and avocados. So I maintain high fat intake and a good amount of protein and my body is extremely healthy and happy and I have good energy levels.
