THE OPTIMAL DIET
Polish medical doctor Jan Kwasniewski is credited with developing the so-called “Optimal Diet,” a high animal fat, moderate protein, low-carb diet. “JK,” as he is referred to by his followers, has authored numerous books in Polish on his research; a cookbook is also available. Two English translations of his books are currently available, the most recent being Homo Optimus, which contains recipes and the clinical effects of the Optimal Diet on a variety of diseases. (12)
The Optimal Diet differs from other low-carb approaches in that it maintains fairly strict ratios of the macronutrients in its meals. Dr. Bogdan Sikorski, a pharmacologist and toxicologist and translator of Homo Optimus, explains the salient features of JK’s approach:
“The so-called ‘Kwasniewski Diet’ also known as the ‘Optimal Nutrition’ (ON) was developed over 30 years ago in Poland by Jan Kwasniewski, MD, and over the years it has been implemented by well over a million (some say two million) people in that country, in treatment and prevention of a range of diseases.
“In contrast to other low-carbate dietary regimens, this nutritional model dictates the exact proportion between the three main food components, protein, fat and carbate (1:2.5-3(min):0.8, respectively), which has to be achieved on a daily basis in order to obtain claimed health benefits. Therefore, unlike all other ad-hoc dietary low-carbate models, ON strictly controls daily intake of not only the “offending” sugars but also the intake of protein, the excess of which is also known to be detrimental to health. Most importantly, both fats and proteins should be biochemically as close as possible to those found in the human body, i.e., they have to be obtained from animal products. They should also contain a full complement of micronutrients, with products such as eggs, fatty bone broths, organ meats and pork fat being the most prominent examples.” (13)
JK has operated a health clinic called Arkadia for many years in Poland, with visitors from across Europe with a host of degenerative diseases. “I saw miracles happening there,” said an Australian medical doctor who emigrated from Poland. “It was simply unbelievable!” Optimal Diet support groups exist in Poland, the USA, and Australia--details can be found on the groups’ website listed at the end of this article.
Despite the diet’s clinical success (numerous testimonials can be found on the groups’ website), the Optimal Diet and JK have been officially condemned by the Polish medical authorities. In his response to the pronouncement, JK pointed out the unwillingness of the Polish medical board to even consider his careful clinical records, something he has been pushing for over the years.
