Weston A. Price Diet Wonders

In my research into dietary theories and what works for most people, the Weston A. Price diet is at the top of the list. I like to think of the Weston A. Price diet more of a lifestyle than a diet. We can adopt it's principles into any lifestyle or diet. Weston A. studied aboriginal people and how their primitive way of living and eating was keeping them from modern diseases we are plagued with today. Today we are going to explore the dietary principles, and lifestyle choices they made that kept them healthier and stronger than modern man.

Dietary Principles:

Now as many of you know by reading our blogs you know that I have been a longtime vegan. I still, however, incorporate into my daily life Weston A. principles that help me be a successful vegan. I want to explore these principles so that no matter what diet you follow you can still benefit from it.

High Fat

In the Weston A. Price diet, it is high in saturated fats and oils. Now why is this a good idea? High-fat diets keep your blood sugar stable and the cholesterol you get from these fats help us build healthy hormones. These saturated fats are really stable at high temperatures and are perfect for cooking. These oils include the following:

  • Butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Palm oil
  • Whole milk
  • Eggs
  • Animal fats
  • Chocolate or cacao butter
  • Fish oils
  • Brazil nuts

I eat on the vegan diet a saturated fat at least 2 or three times a day. Vegans who don’t incorporate this type of fat tend to have higher blood sugar and have to eat more often.

  • This high-fat principle is a great way to lose weight. I know this sounds counter-intuitive but it’s true - these fats burn so clean and give you great energy helping to rev your metabolism.
  • Low carbs and higher protein also factor into these lifestyle changes as well.

Lifestyle Principles:

  • So let’s face it, the majority of modern man are weak (I am guilty as charged). Now what I mean by weak is in an aboriginal’s life, they work from the time they wake up to get food, build shelter, and survive.
  • Our modern way of life through comforts and daily habits has made our bodies, and immune systems weak.
  • Here is a list of how we can bring the primal life into our everyday life.


  • Yes, we used to flat foot squat to use the restroom in the wild. The whole body benefits from squatting including our hormonal and neuromuscular systems.

High-Intensity Interval Training

  • This form of exercise is going really high intensity for like 3 min then rest for like 5 seconds and start again. This form of exercise is really effective by mimicking how we used to hunt and gather our food.


  • Not just a Weston A. principle but something we should all aspire to do more. I recommend fasting at least one day a week and give the body a rest. This will work miracles in the body.


I hope I have inspired you to adopt some of these amazing principles into your everyday life. I hope that everyone has a blessed day and stay tuned for next blog where we will be discovering the power of turmeric, my favorite herb!
