Wait a minute, you’ve never heard of Blue zones?
Let me explain. Only a few people make it to their nineties without the baggage of disease. But there are 7 extraordinary geographic areas where the average life expectancy went up to 100 years. Sardinia, Italy; Okinawa, Japan; Loma Linda, California, Ikaria, Greece; and Nicoya, Costa Rica have the longest living folks. These regions have become the blue zones.
Do you love your hamburgers, steak, and hot dogs a little too much?
Red meat has been such a mainstay that it can almost double as America’s National meal. But guess what? People in the blue zones have meat only as celebratory food. They have it maybe twice a week or even less and the serving size is small, somewhere around 2 Oz.
The next source of protein in an average American’s diet is probably eggs and fish.
You’ll want to eat no more than 3 eggs per week to mimic a blue zone diet. Have it as a side dish like the Mediterranean people or in a soup like Okinawans.
Moving ahead, what’s the one thing common in cakes, doughnuts, pastries, and chocolate?
It’s sugar! The number of obese people is skyrocketing and sugar is a major contributor. One in three Americans are overweight. The nutritional guidelines for Americans dictate having 6- 9 tablespoons of sugar per day. But do you know how much the average American has? 22 tablespoons. And every year it’s increasing. This is because our bodies have become more resistant and can be satiated only with more and more sugar.
Now can you imagine the world’s healthiest people drinking soda?
No! Then why should you be drinking it?! If it’s your usual drink with dinner then you need to stop ASAP. The beverage rules of the blue zone diet are pretty straightforward.
Another thing that you have to be careful of is milk.
For decades we have considered dairy as a main source of calcium. But did you know a few people can have a tough time digesting cow’s milk? Nearly 30 million Americans have lactose intolerance. Sardinian and Ikarian people from blue zones are used to drinking sheep and goat’s milk. They have lactase, another enzyme, that helps in the digestion of lactose.
Are you a big fan of the bread basket at restaurants?
Most of the time it will be made of refined flour. And just like other processed foods, processed grains are also a big no when you are following a blue zone diet. This carbohydrate-rich food breakdown immediately creates a surge of glucose in your bloodstream.
