Do you remember your school years, when you came home with a report card that you were pretty happy with? It had mostly B’s, and a couple of A’s. What did your parents say? Probably something like, “this is a good report card, let’s work on those B’s and get them up to A’s.” The B’s were good, but there was room for improvement. Then you entered the work world and heard something similar during your annual appraisal session: “you’re doing well, but if you want that promotion or bonus, you’ll have to do even better.”

When do you say it’s good enough, and when do you strive for more, especially regarding your health? Are you satisfied with being less sick than those around you, and maybe beating the actuarial life expectancy tables by a few years? Or are you aiming to live, robustly and energetically, into your 90’s or beyond? Since you are interested in health, you probably are doing better than average, but would you like to be at the top of your class?

Most health-conscious people are getting C’s and a few B’s. They’ve realized that health doesn’t just happen, especially these days, and they want more out of life and performance from their bodies. But going for the A seems like too much work, too confusing, or just not worth the extra effort. Health advice, which is quite inconsistent and confusing, is everywhere: some suggests that health can come from supplements, from a fitness program, or from some popular diet program. The health conscious may think that doing more for health will require too much time. Something inhibits them from pushing for the A.

If you are reading this, you have at least some interest in going further with health, advancing from where you are now. So let’s try to simplify your program and back up its value to you with solid research. Let’s see what you can do so that you get 100-fold return on your investment. If we can do that, will you do go for the A? We will look at diet and try to prove to you that you can make a big difference in your health and longevity.

Diet – Grade F
The standard American diet (we call it SAD — and it really is sad) doesn’t even rate a D because it contains more harmful elements than nutrition. This way of eating heavily processed foods, with most nutrients cooked out of them, that wouldn’t even provide a decent array of vitamins where it not for artificially added supplements; foods high in sugar and saturated animal fat; and foods that contain an array of anti-nutrients and toxins — this SAD diet is largely responsible for the declining health in this country and in many industrialized portions of the world. It is designed to cater to taste buds rather than health.

Grade F foods are well known: potato chips, ice cream, cookies, candy, soda pop, French fries — foods that are so bad that most everyone knows they are unhealthy. Yet they are also popular, harming much of our populace without their knowledge or understanding.

Diet – Grade D
Though slow to happen, some of the worst offenders in the SAD, such as partially hydrogenated fats, toxic sweeteners, extremely sugary drinks, and preservatives ,are falling out of favor — people have heard enough about the evils of these that they are substituting somewhat better alternatives. Even McDonalds, which is often the symbol of fast and unhealthy food, has made some shifts towards less dangerous foods. So the public awareness has shifted away from the worst offenders. Average people eat mostly processed foods with supplemented vitamins, and may occasionally eat some healthier foods to feel less guilty about their food choices. They may attempt to diet to reduce excess weight, or limit sweets because they are told they are borderline diabetic. Yet they are still having little positive impact on their health, because the D grade diet is still not addressing the real problem.

Grade D foods include cooked and or pasteurized steak, eggs, milk, canned/cooked vegetables, breads, pasta, potatoes, and rice — foods that the average American would not think are harmful and will eat with abandon. Many will think these foods are just fine, maybe even somewhat healthful. In reality, they are toxic in many ways, and not nutrient dense. The greatest danger with these foods is that the FDA, doctors, and many nutritionists will suggest these foods as a good diet. Some popular diet programs include many grade D foods, such as the Keto Diet, the GAPS Diet, the Low-Fat Diet, WeightWatchers, or the Zone Diet.

Diet – Grade C

These are many of the popular health foods, including sweet fruit, plant-based processed and shelf-stable foods, canned or bottled vegetable juices — foods that health food stores would be willing to carry. These are often foods that cater to health-conscious individuals. Foods in this category have higher nutrient levels, but not top-notch, as some are lost in processing and over time on the shelves.

Diet – Grade B
Many popular diets are mostly grade B but still allow some grade C, and even grade D foods in small amounts, such as the Mediterranean Diet, the Vegetarian Diet, or the Mayo Clinic Diet. Of these diets, the Mediterranean Diet is the most popular and is also the most clinically-studied diet. Since it is clearly the front-runner diet, it is worthy of a closer look…

The best popular diet can do better. The Mediterranean Diet isn’t a precise diet that requires strict adherence to specific foods. Rather, it has these general guidelines:

  • Emphasis on vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds
  • Low consumption of meat, but small amounts of non-processed and non-red meat allowed).
  • Fish is accepted in moderate amounts.
  • Low consumption of dairy; preference on yogurt or cheeses.
  • Plant fats and oils, especially olive oil, are encouraged

This diet is a combination of grade A (if the vegetables are raw and living), B, C, and D foods, but limits the grade D options. Since this diet is well researched, multiple studies are sometimes considered together, as in a review study published in Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition and Metabolic Care. Here, researchers combine results from 19 other major studies. This is their summation statement: “Recently, 19 new reports from large prospective studies showed – with nearly perfect consistency – strong benefits of the Mediterranean diet to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, total mortality, heart failure and disability.” The studies reviewed use the “food pattern” analysis method, rather than the single nutrient or food approach, recognizing that different foods interact, and is an appropriate analysis method when considering an entire complex dietary pattern. Foods themselves are very diverse, and only by reviewing the combination of foods regularly being eaten can the societal impacts of certain diets be rated. And the Mediterranean Diet rates number 1 on most every list.

With such ratings, could this diet be made even better? Apparently so — recent studies are showing the superiority of a variant of it, called the Green Mediterranean Diet. In this variant, higher levels of high polyphenol plant foods are added, while completely cutting out red and processed meats. It trades some grade C/D foods for grade A. In doing so, this diet is achieving even higher ratings for disease prevention and longevity improvements than the traditional version.

Go Green
While the traditional version has been studied greatly, research of the Green Mediterranean Diet is catching up. One study from Journal of the American College of Cardiology concluded that this diet may be twice as healthy as the Mediterranean Diet. In this study, comparing both versions with a control group, researchers found greater weight loss and waist size reductions with the Green version, but perhaps more importantly saw more than twice the reduction of c-reactive protein (CRP — this is an inflammation indicator) after six months on the Green version (-0.52 mg/L) over the traditional version (-0.24 mg/L). CRP, which you can get on a blood test readily, is a prime indicator of general inflammation in your body. Inflammation precedes all diseases, and chronic inflammation is the reason for degenerative diseases and early aging. It is the main driver of cancer. So something that affects the CRP reading this drastically is well worth your time and effort.

The Green version in particular reduced cardiovascular risk: lowered bad cholesterol, less arterial stiffness, and lowered overall mortality risk. This study is showing the way you can revolutionize your life and health.

Now, if the Green Mediterranean Diet is so effective by adding grade A foods, what are these miracle foods?

Diet – Grade A
You may have already figured out some of the A grade foods. Raw (fresh, never heated or cooked), living (alive, and can still grow), and uncooked vegetables are at the top of the list. These contain phytonutrients that just don’t come from any other source: there are thousands of phytonutrients and phytochemicals (“phyto” is derived from the Greek, meaning “plant”) that your body really needs, but doesn’t come close to getting in the other grades of foods. So important are the plant chemicals that drug research usually first starts with a plant chemical and attempts to mimic it. Also, if the plants are so fresh that you could plant and grow them (assume they still had roots attached), then they also contain biophotons, which you will only get from plants that are fully alive.

And these nutrients can be further concentrated by juicing, which helps you take in more without eating all the bulk. Plant fats are also a vital part of the grade A list — walnuts are great, but don’t forget avocados for a fantastic fat source along with an array of other nutrients. Simply shifting your diet to more of these foods and less of everything else gives you tremendous benefits. Basically, green leafy vegetables, broccoli and related plant flower buds such as cauliflower — most anything you would put into a green salad (the darker greens are best) — are grade A.

Just one caution: fruits would be grade B from a nutrient standpoint, but you also must watch sugar intake. There are a few low glycemic fruits, but if you think the fruit is tasty because it is sweet, then it contains too much sugar. Juicing vegetables makes what sugar they contain more accessible to your body, and juicing fruit gives you a powerful sugar hit. Sugar can lower your health grade very quickly! Basically one part of your body that you should have removed is your sweet tooth.

You can do better
If you want a grade A lifestyle, if you are unwilling to settle for B grade when it comes to your life, your health, and your longevity, then you need A grade foods. Research is confirming this: every move towards living green vegetables, with raw nuts and seeds, yields the best health benefits. Don’t settle for a lower grade when it comes to the most important possession you have — your own health.

 

Dr. Nemec’s Review

The most consistent diet research has always pointed to the Mediterranean diet of all the popular diets as the best overall for health and longevity. Yet the latest research has opened the door to an even higher level of health, twice as health promoting as the Mediterranean diet. Just by adding more raw greens and more raw plant fats like seeds, nuts, and avocados, the green Mediterranean diet became twice as health promoting as a long-standing Mediterranean diet. This is why we give it a B as its report card grade because it is by far the best diet that is universally accepted. Isn’t it interesting that just by adding more raw greens and more raw plant fats this diet is twice as anti-inflammatory and longevity producing as the standard Mediterranean diet?

But there is a diet that will go far above and beyond even this diet, one that will give you an A+ every time, is by far the best for your cellular health, and never can be improved upon. This diet has been barely researched with conventional research studies. It is truly the diamond in the rough.

Personal Revelation
It is a diet that was revealed to us at a Revolution New Medicine in our own personal healing journey. It was not a diet that was greatly promoted; in fact, it was more shunned. It was not a diet that was promoted at all except in very small, extremely health-promoting circles, but even those diet recommendations were not what was revealed to us. The diet has been observed and can be demonstrated: it’s effect can be clearly seen with thousands of years of observational study.

Look to nature
If you look to nature, to the animal kingdom, which has been present on the Earth since creation, the most amazing fact is revealed, and it is beyond comprehension that it is so overlooked. What is that fact?

The animal kingdom has eaten the same food since the beginning, with no change in diet. For thousands of years, they’ve eaten the same exact food which has been maintaining their health and longevity. And ask yourself the question, if you’re ready to go deeper with the answer…

What Do They Eat?
They eat living food exclusively. A plant eater eats living leaves and living grass. A carnivore eats living animals. That’s it: living plants and living animals as food has been the answer to their longevity and vitality for thousands of years. So we must ask ourselves — if we’re ready for the answer — what does living food have that our diet is missing?

The energy of life
Living food is alive, and being alive has certain properties that can be measured with the tools of physics, chemistry and biology. How do you measure life? What is the difference between life and no life; between life and death?

It is energy
What is energy, you ask. Well, the only way we can have a conception of energy is through our approved divisions of science of biophysics, biochemistry, and biology.

So, what is energy?
Energy is measured in physics down to the smallest unit called “quanta”, and the most notable unit or quanta of energy is a photon — an energy packet of light. So in essence, energy is stored light.

What’s the difference between life and death? Living organisms have energy and dead organisms have no energy: that’s the difference, pure and simple. Now let’s go back to the animal kingdom, eating living food. When an elephant eats green leaves that are growing on the tree, those leaves are alive. They are filled with energy of life. They are filled with photons, and photons in a biological system are called “biophotons.” So the elephant is eating 100% biophoton-filled food. That is why they and all the plant eating animals on the earth have such longevity: it is because they are eating nothing but the highest form of energy, which is light energy — biophoton energy.

Life brings forth life
This such a basic concept. It would make sense to a child, yet we have totally overlooked it. All our brilliant minds of scientific research, and all the diet research does not even consider this as a key fundamental principle in life and health.

How to shorten your lifespan and healthspan quickly? This is easy to understand now: eat dead food, which has no energy, which uses your energy and vitality to digest and absorb and assimilate.

What’s dead food, you ask?
It’s hidden under the nice name of cooked food. Let’s rename cooked food and use its actual name: dead food. So how do you increase longevity and the quality of life? All you have to do is eat life, not death — this alone will transform your health. Eat living foods, raw foods — not cooked foods, dead foods — it’s a basic physics law.

Order vs Disorder
If you introduce energy-deficient substances into an equation, you always decrease the energy of the system. It becomes more disordered and chaotic. This is the route of decreased longevity, vitality, and increased disease production. Disease is simply caused by decreasing energy state, shifting from order to disorder.

So what is the best diet the A+ diet?
One that is 100% living and raw — not cooked, not killed, not deficient in the energy of life in any of its components. And of course it’s plants, not animals, because you were never designed to eat living animals. Simply to go living and raw greens, living and raw seeds, nuts, avocados, and raw, low glycemic index, vegetables and fruits.

And you will know and understand the truth, and the truth will set you free from your blindness, your ignorance, your lack of knowing and understanding.
