About the Project

"In all affairs it’s a healthy thing now and then to a hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted" — Bertrand Russell

What separates the Post-Modern Diet from the myriad of diet and health-related books and websites?

For starters, the only "diet" is the one you create for yourself. The Post-Modern Lifestyle Project examines the biochemistry and scientific research to learn what really contributes to good health, what doesn't, and why. It's up to you to weigh the pros and cons and make up your own mind based on your own goals and on what's even practical in the "modern" world.

The Post-Modern Lifestyle is a mindset and a manifesto. It frames how we should be thinking about our physical and mental health in the modern era.

Some of the questions we've examined are:
  • What are the real difference between a low-fat, low-calorie and a low-fat diets?
  • Which diet regimen is the quickest or safest or the most effective way to lose weight?
  • What causes weight rebounds?
  • What is the role of exercise in weight loss?
  • Is eating meat (red or otherwise) bad for you?
  • What's the difference between a food "sensitivity" and an "allergy"?
  • What's the truth about "detox"?
  • What foods are addictive and why?
  • What are the real causes of high blood pressure and high cholesterol?
  • Is fasting dangerous?
  • Does your DNA say anything about your health?
  • What's the difference between type I and type II diabetes, and why does it matter?

Everyone—from doctors to nutritionists to product vendors—has "opinions" about these topics. These opinions are so varied—and often contradictory—that it is near impossible to get reliable information. When you actually examine the scientific data, you often find that the common wisdom isn't supported by either the biochemistry or the studies.

As educators, we want to provide you with reliable information that empowers you to make rational choices supporting a healthier life. That is the purpose of Post-Modern Lifestyle Project.
