The diet industry has been plundering people’s money for a LONG time, with very little long term results to show for it. But as the old saying goes, those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.

Sure, there are a few diets out there that had some merit, albeit, they were often very short sighted. Not something that would result in a REAL change.

One of the first popular diets of our time, that still gets a lot of attention, is the low calorie diet. Unfortunately, low calorie diets don’t tackle the real reason for health issues or weight gain in the first place – increasing toxic burden and malnourishment.

Then along came the low sugar diet, which was good in some ways, but people were snookered into believing that artificially created sweeteners (aspartame, Splenda, saccharin, etc) were healthier, which riddled these low sugar products and made them arguably much worse than the sugar itself.

What about low fat? Yes, let’s try that because fat MUST be the reason we are fat…but all it created was another chemical shit storm in a package that was way worse than most of the fats themselves.

But don’t forget to get your protein! A whole industry was made on this macronutrient alone. Mucous forming and kidney stressing shakes are still all the rage and are one of people’s biggest concerns. The question, “where do you get your protein?”, has become so common it’s now a culture.

But wait, it’s CARBS that are causing the problem, and now that we have learned that low fat wasn’t the answer, it MUST be high fat, low carb! Alas, the keto diet was born, creating an incredible burden to the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and digestive system, while eliminating far too many of some of the healthiest carbs on the planet, fruits and vegetables.

And since it hasn’t been tried yet, and there is still more suckers out there, how about the carnivore diet? Yep, all meat. Because that won’t eventually blow out your colon, kill your kidneys, and leave you open to a variety of biological infections.

Of course, there are many other diets that have made millions off the short term excitement and long term frustration of those who follow them.

So what’s next? Is there anything left to scrutinize and go to the extreme with? How about the all donut diet? Dessert diet? Banana diet?

Whatever fad diet someone chooses, it always ends in the same way. Much like the Titanic, that the makers were adamant could never sink…these fad diets eventually crash and burn, along with their ride-or-die promoters, and it’s on to the next diet like nothing ever happened.

Except, there are a few of us paying attention, trying to alert you of the next marketing trick.

In the end, those that are the healthiest (and have stayed that way for DECADES), and have been able to heal their bodies from chronic disease, HAVEN’T done it through fad diets.

They’ve done it through holistic approaches, rooted in plant-based nutrition, with a focus on hydrating and healing foods that have all the important macro and micro nutrients, in the PROPER ratios for their body.

And this is how it is done in the THRIVE Academy, and how so many healthier people have been created, regardless of the condition. If you have digestive or autoimmune concerns, it’s the perfect place to get the help you need.
