Become Superhuman by Eating Nutrient-Dense Foods

Become Superhuman by Eating Nutrient-Dense Animal Foods

Animal foods are the most nutrient-dense foods on earth. Don’t listen to someone who gives you a long list of plant foods to eat because they are “nutrient-dense”. Animal foods are the way to go if nutrient density is what you’re after.

Sure, plant foods might contain many nutrients, but the nutrients in plant foods are usually harder to digest and absorb. With animal foods, you don’t only get nutrient-dense foods, but you get them in an easily absorbable form.

Eating nutrient-dense foods can help you greatly in the quest to becoming Superhuman. I love dissecting the nutritional content of foods, researching the benefits of each micronutrient, and knowing how it can aid self-optimization (this is where my nerdy side reveals itself). I believe that we should focus on nutrients instead of just counting calories if we are going to try and become our superhuman selves. 

What you eat and what you choose to give your body is far more important than the amount of calories you eat, especially when you want to become superhuman. Calories are merely a unit of energy, and while important, it does not give any indication of the quality of the source of the calories you are consuming.

Nutrient-dense foods offer a large amount of nutrients in relation to their calorie content, and make it easier for you to get the macronutrients and micronutrients, such as essential vitamins and minerals, which you need in an efficient way. 

If most of the nutrients in your diet come from various nutrient-dense foods, you are giving your body a variety of nutrients from powerful sources, and will reduce your chances of developing any nutrient deficiencies. You will help your body get all of the nutrients it needs to thrive and perform optimally.

You will give your body the building blocks and energy to help you become the Superhuman version of you.

Here are a three of my favourite animal foods with the highest concentrations of nutrients: 

1. Liver: A Superfood for Superhumans

Some people do not like the taste of it, but liver is possibly the most potent superfood there is available. Not only is liver high in protein, but in terms of your recommended daily allowance of certain vitamins and minerals, a 100g serving provides you with a lot of vitamin C, iron, vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin A.

Most people do not get enough pure vitamin A in their diets from sources like egg yolks or liver. While beta-carotene, the carotenoid that your body turns into vitamin A is found in vegetables like carrots and butternut, the amount of vitamin A you get in the end may not be sufficient for your body to get optimal levels.

With these concentrated amounts of nutrients, consuming liver and other organ meats regularly might even replace the need for supplementation. 

2. Egg Yolks: You Can Finally Stop Eating Egg-White Omelettes

Eggs are some of the most nutrient-dense foods you can find, but that is only if you include the yolks. The yolks provide you with a good amount of fat, choline, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B6 and B12, iron, and selenium. Even though egg yolks are high in dietary cholesterol, it is not something to be feared. Cholesterol is important for healthy hormone production. If you consume too little, you can start to experience hormonal problems. Eat your yolks.

3. Salmon for a Superhuman Brain and Body

As one of the best sources of omega 3 fatty acids, salmon was sure to make the list. It is also a very good source of fat, protein, magnesium, and vitamins B6 and B12. If you can consume it once or twice a week, that will be wonderful for your health and superhuman journey.

Diet can be very powerful on the quest for self-optimization. If you prioritize nutrient-dense animal foods in your diet, you might just be surprised to see how much your health and quality of life improve. Maybe nutrient-dense animal foods and following an animal-based diet is the missing key to you becoming superhuman.
