Terry Wahls’ lamb skillet meal

I’ve been intrigued with Terry Wahls’ approach to intentionally maximising nutrition.

By following a highly nutrient dense ketogenic diet Dr Terry Wahls claims to have reversed her Multiple Sclerosis and is undertaking experiments to verify that this high nutrient density approach works for others with Multiple Sclerosis.

Her Mind your Mitochondria TED talk has hit more than two million views!

The aim of the Wahls Paleo Plus, as detailed in The Whals’ Protocol, is to achieve nutritional ketosis, while maximising nutrients as far as possible with non-starchy vegetables as well as coconut oil, coconut cream and MCT oil which help facilitate nutritional ketosis with a higher level of carbohydrates.

Whals’ approach aims to not just meet but exceed the recommended nutrient intake levels as shown in the comparison of both the Wahls Diet and the recommended US dietary daily intake for a range of key vitamins below.

While supplements can still be useful, it is ideal to obtain all your nutrients from real food as they are usually better absorbed in their natural form and with fats (fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K) than in tablets and isolation.

Eating real food also ensures you get a wide range of nutrients that can be found in plants in nature rather than just the limited number of vitamins and minerals on the recommended daily allowance checklist.

I ran the number on lamb skillet meal and it went extremely well! With the broccoli, garlic, kelp and spinach the nutritional completeness is off the chart!

The insulin requirement of the protein is high, although this is not really a problem as protein is digested much more slowly than carbohydrates.

If you’re interested in checking out more highly nutrient dense meals I highly recommend reading The Whals’ Protocol.
