Eat Like A Bear Diet Plan
I'll just go ahead and ask the question, "why should you be an omnivore"? This really stems from the thought that we should let our environment determine our diet.

Going forward, I want you to try to model your nutrition plan around the bear. Bears are omnivores, but, they're mostly vegetarian. They're also adaptable creatures, based on their surroundings. Polar bears eat seals. Panda bears eat mostly bamboo. North American Nordic bears eat pretty much just anything ... berries, fruits, nuts, mushrooms. But, they also eat meat, as well. Again, based on their surroundings.

In true digestive fashion, the body doesn't really care what label you put on the foods you I'm sure you've had a conversation with someone before about what's the best diet or meal plan. If you have, this episode is definitely a must. Click the link to listen or download.
