The Pegan Diet: Leverage Personalized Nutrition For Optimal Health

2/26/2021
Food is not just calories or energy; food is information, 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...

The Pegan Diet: Eat Like A Regenetarian

2/19/2021
Our agriculture system is destructive— for the earth and for human health. The food produced by industrial agriculture leads to at least 11 million deaths a year and drives our obesity epidemic.

When we vote with our dollars and our forks by choosing regeneratively grown food, we send a message to Big...

The Pegan Diet: Have Fats With Every Meal

2/12/2021
Fat has been unfairly vilified for decades. The truth is that the right fats can make you healthy and lean, and can fuel your brain, while the wrong fats can be deadly.
