first and foremost thank you very much for responding to my post and my questions, I appreciate that very much!
I know, nutrition nowadays is a from of “religion” for some people and everybody hast their own opinion about certian foods, diets etc. but obviously you know what you are talking about and for my understanding your and your familys diet is pretty “healthy”.
Over the last couple of years I try to eat “healthy” and I try to introduce my family (I don´t have kids) to eat also a more balanced and healthy diet too. My problem is, that I can´t explain things in plain language and when I talk to my father and try to explain him certian things, he says “…shut up, thats the internet and we eat wheat since we are born and I´m not dead yet, so it can´t be that bad”… etc. etc. etc.
Like I said, I think you are really smart regarding diet and nutrition and therefore I hope and I please ask you for it if you can explain a few things to me from YOUR personal standpoint and your opinion in plain english that every human being understand it. That would be awesome!
-why you are not using high linoleic oils like corn, soy, sunflower oil?
-why is olive oil and butter better then these other oils?
-why you avoid grains which contain gluten?
-why you don´t eat legumes and beans or nuts?
-I read you are also avoiding whole grains, why?
-what about dairy?
-what are your thoughts on soy?
-why do you eat not that much fruit like everyboy else recommends?
I hope you can help me out and I´m very very interested what are your personal opinon on all the different foods is. Then I hope I can talk in plain english with my father and he is willing to try a healthyer diet that is eating right now.
Thank you very much for your valuable time and your help
