STOP READING NOW. I mean it…what you are about to read is going to rattle your normal attitude towards food.
This article may be your choice between the red pill and the blue pill. Once you choose there is no going back!
Rely On The Government For Your Nutrition Information?
Folks, most of us have been brainwashed by the triplet of big gov, big pharma, and big ag (including big fast food) into believing that we can have our cake and eat it too! Well, you can’t. There are penalties for eating too much cake and they are not always the obvious ones either.
Just imagine if 10% of the people who smoked a cigarette died in the 3 days after their first cigarette.
How many people would smoke?
I know I would never have started. And would we let it be legal? A cigarette is not the only product that, if used as directed, will kill you. Everyone thought margarine was good for us back in the sixties and seventies. We beat up butter and replaced it with a chemical product that resembles plastic.
Healthy choices at fast food restaurants? NOT! Between the food handling procedures and the big agriculture products eating at any Fast Food place is potentially hazardous to your health both long and short term. Buy your own food and eat it at home.
Soy is good for you. NOT! Soy milk is a waste product that big ag has marketed you into believing is good for you. And the potential for hormonal disruption especially for men is too great. If you must eat soy and you really don’t, then eat the fermented products like tempeh.
Milk provides calcium. NOT! Pasteurized and homogenized milk, even with calcium added, has little to no nutritional value except to provide lactose (a sugar) and casein, an inflammatory agent in the protein. Drink only raw organic milk for health. Better yet…skip the milk in favor of fermented dairy if you must (kefir and yogurt). Goat milk is better than cow too.
The food pyramid is the way to eat. ABSOLUTELY NOT! Just look around you…there is an epidemic of obesity and diabetes in this country. And every country across the globe that adopts our style of eating gets fatter as well. The food pyramid was originally designed to have limited grain consumption, not the current 6-11 servings daily. Guess what…grains are not good for you. They are high glycemic, cause insulin spikes (accelerating weight gain) and create inflammation and addiction to sugar. Bad, very bad.
Eat vegetables, lots of vegetables—raw, steamed, roasted, or grilled, some fruit, seeds and nuts (pumpkin, sunflower, almonds, walnuts etc.), meat from organic natural sources, organic, free range and local eggs (including the yolks), healthy fat—avocado, olive, butter, coconut, nut butters and drink water. Simple, really, but not terribly easy for many people. Aim for about 80% of your food consumption like this and you will be on your way to optimum health and fitness.
