The Power Of Being Thin Is Found In Eating Fat

Most everybody wants to be thin simply to look good, but the advantages of being thin go a lot further than
just looking good. Being thin is not only highly beneficial for your looks but it’s crucial for your health and even more important for your brain’s health. Did you know that the fatter you are, the smaller your brain is? It’s true. That is directly form Dr Perlmutter’s book Grain Brain. Conversely, the thinner you are, the bigger your brain is, also. Don’t believe me? Look at the research studies and what Dr Perlmutter says in Grain Brain:

“The dots connecting excessive body fat, obesity, and brain dysfunction are not hard to follow given the information you’ve already learned in this book. Excessive body fat increases not only insulin resistance, but also the production of inflammatory chemicals that play directly into brain degeneration. For this very reason, waist circumference is often a measurement of “health,” as it predicts future health challenges and mortality; the higher your waist circumference, the higher your risk for disease and death. (19)”

danger-obesity-grim-reaper-touches-shoulder-happy-overweight-black-woman-big-cupcake-vector-illustration-health-41031554“It’s well documented that visceral fat is uniquely capable of triggering hormonal actions.  This, in turn, keeps the cascade of of negative effects from visceral fat going. In addition, visceral fat does more than just generate inflammation down the road through a chain of biological events; visceral fat itself becomes inflamed. This kind of fat houses tribes of inflammatory white blood cells. In fact, the hormonal and inflammatory molecules produced by visceral fat get dumped directly into the liver, which, as you can imagine, responds with another round of ammunition (i.e., inflammatory reactions and hormone-disrupting substances). Long story short: More than merely a predator lurking behind a tree, it is an enemy that is armed and dangerous. The number of health conditions now linked to visceral fat is tremendous, from the obvious ones such as obesity and metabolic syndrome to the not-so-obvious—cancer, autoimmune disorders, and brain disease.”

I copied and pasted the information above from Grain Brain for a reason. Obesity is a danger to more than just your body, by filling it with inflammation, it’s shrinking your brain by using these same process that creates plaque. It’s all due to excessive carbohydrate consumption, carbohydrates in the form of cereals, breads and pastas.

It’s true, according to  Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD, Carbohydrates are the primary cause of weight gain, not fats. (Animals raised for food are fattened with carbohydrates.)” He goes on to say that eating fat is not only healthier than eating carbohydrates, it makes you thinner. “We found that the people who ate the most cholesterol, ate the most saturated fat, ate the most calories, weighed the least and were the most physically active” (Arch Int Med 1992;152:1271—2). It’s true,  I know from experience. Eating fat makes you thin.

Eating Fat Makes You Thin

Studies have shown that getting back to what our original metabolism likes for a diet and what our bodies are meant to digest means getting back to diet high in fats and low in carbohydrates. They began emerging in the mid-to-late-2000s which evaluate low-carbohydrate diets over much longer periods, controlled studies as long as two years and survey studies as long as two decades.[7][13][14][15] In complete contradiction of what the USDA was telling us to eat, a lot of carbohydrates with low fat and low cholesterol, a lot more people are choosing the low carb diet instead of the low fat diet. Those who are on a ketogenic diet, already know the benefits that come with being on it, can’t be surpassed.

Dr Atkins was the first to promote a low carbohydrate diet as early as 1958, yet it seems that the carbohydrate addiction complex had already started its devious work in addicting our society to the ravages of the Wheat Belly saga. It seems that too many members of our congress thought it better to restrict our consumption fats, thinking that’s what was causing all the problem with obesity and diabetes. In all actuality, it carbs that cause the fat that causes obesity and diabetes, not fat at all. You can find out how that happens in Carbs, The New Death Sentence

It’s all a matter of how they are digested. To digest carbohydrates, your body has to turn them into fat. This is because your body can’t run on sugar. It runs on fat. The studies showing this include,  Iris Shai, R.D., Ph.D. (July 2008). “Weight Loss with a Low-Carbohydrate, Mediterranean, or Low-Fat Diet.”. New England Journal of Medicine 359 (3): 229–41. doi:10.1056/NEJMoa0708681.PMID 18635428, Low-carbohydrate-Diet Score and the Risk of Coronary Heart Disease in omen from The New England Journal of Medicineand the two others listed above ([14][15]). What this means is that when you eat carbohydrates, your body can’t use that as food because it burns fat.

When you eat fat, your body doesn’t have to convert that into anything to use. They’re digested in your small intestine unlike carbs that are digested cellularly with the help of insulin. That means that the glucose that carbs become have to float around in your blood stream until they can enter a cell to be used as glycogen. This is where the problem begins. Anyone who’s been on a diet of carbohydrates for any amount of time has enough glycogen built up in their systems that they don’t need anymore, so the glucose turns into fat to be stored for future use.

The first place your body stores this fat is around your mid section, hence its name, belly fat or visceral fat. This is a dangerous fat to have in your body as this is where diabetes starts, along with a host of cancers and CVDs or heart diseases and most every kind of dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and Huntington’s Disease.

Human biology hasn’t changed evolutionarily enough to allow humans to continue to eat carbohydrates in the massive amounts that everyone everywhere is eating them. The Paleo Diet  is a recent addition to the low carb diet choice. The ketogenic diet is the ultimate in a low carb diet and has already shown numerous benefits for better health. It’s the recommended diet for Celiac Disease since Celiac Disease is caused by the gluten that’s found in wheat, barley and rye and a few other grains. It’s also the oldest low carb diet, first designed in 1923, to help control seizures. The diet fell out of use when seizure medicines became more prevalent.

It turns out that a ketogenic diet is the healthiest diet that any human can eat and it brings with it, the most natural form of weight loss, possible. It goes back to the way our bodies have  metabolized food for the last 100,000 years. Simply because this diet is based on fat and not carbs, the diet provides much higher octane fuel for our bodies to use. Carbohydrates have a tendency to gum up your body. They do it by creating plaque. That gets into to glycation of proteins and LDL cholesterol, which you can read about in Carbs, How The Cause AGEs

Excess Body Fat caused by Excessive Carbohydrate Consumption

is the foundation of inflammation.

This plaque build up is the foundation of 75% of the deadliest and costliest diseases, known to man, ranging from breast cancer  to Atherosclerosis to 99% of all dementias, making carbohydrates some of the deadliest food that any human can eat. It’s not that this food just makes us fat, it has the ability to kill us slowly and expensively, with an arm long list of  disorders. For this one reason alone, the power of being thin by eating fat cannot be overspoken.

Studies have also shown the simple practice of calorie restriction to have multiple beneficial effects for the body, such as extended life. It’s amazing what just going hungry, can do for your body. It not only ramps up your immune system by boosting your anti-oxidants exponentially. While doing that it actually helps your brain grow, through a little protein in your brain known as BDNF, brain derived neurotrophic factor. This is what makes your brain grow and it doesn’t happen in obese people. This is part of the power of being thin.

Calorie restriction on a carbohydrate diet is next to impossible, yet I do it every day and quite easily comfortably, while on my MCT ketogenic diet. MCT ketogenic diet is in my estimation as the easiest low carbohydrate diet to get adjusted to. MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) work differently in your body than LCTs (Long Chain Triglycerides). MCTs are a good way to actually lower your cholesterol because they build up the HDL cholesterol. Coconut oil is optimal for this, as it contains lauric acid  and lauric acid is the foundation of HDL cholesterol, the good cholesterol.

Eating Fat Balances Cholesterol

Going back to what Dr Miller says, had included in his paper, “calorie restriction prolongs life as well as helps to make y0ur brain grow.” This is the true power of being thin. It comes easiest from being on a high fat low carb diet. What kind of fats then, do we need to eat, to be thinner? I mentioned before, MCTs. Medium chain triglycerides are the best, along with olive oil and avocado oil, Palm kernel oil is also an excellent source of MCTs but coconut oil is by far the best MCT, in my opinion.

Coconut oil has lauric acid in its chain of triglycerides, which is the foundation of HDL cholesterol. This means that a diet high in coconut oil MCTs helps build up HDL cholesterol, which in turn can help lower LDL cholesterol. Lauric acid is at the core of apolipoprotein A, which in turn is at the core of HDL cholesterol. Studies have shown higher levels of HDL particles in the blood to be very beneficial for one’s health.

For MCTs, I like milk fat. All milk fats are MCTs. That means that all milk fat can help you lose weight. I’ll bet you didn’t expect that, did you? That means that low fat milk and skim milk actually help make you fatter by taking away that healthy the MCTs in milk fat. That also means, butter is back! Wow, how much better can it be? Butter can help you lose weight. What a concept, the more milk fat, the healthier.

That also means that I can go back to eating bacon. I love bacon. (As a matter of fact, I’ve already gone back to eating bacon. I just enjoyed about 6 slices.) Bacon may not be a medium chain triglyceride, but I still love it, and I’m not restricted from eating it by my religion, so I eat it and lots of it. I couldn’t do that though, if I ate carbs. That would lead to major problems like hypertensive heart disease.

Grass fed beef is always a good source of fats as well as protein. Eggs are arguably the best source of healthy protein and cholesterol. The cholesterol is the kind your body loves, not the kind your body makes, with glucose. That’s the LDL particles, the dangerous stuff, that is what you need to stay away from. It’s the product of carbs.

Carbs! My Life Without Them on a Ketogenic diet

ketogenic diet

This is the best part of my journey, getting to share with you my experiences, since I first gave up this horrid food. My first impulse is to think, I can’t say enough about the benefits I’ve received and experienced from being on this ketogenic diet. But, I’m going to try right here to lay out as many of them as I can, explaining how it’s benefited me, and more importantly, how I can save money by allowing those benefits to continue, by remaining on my keto diet. This, to me, is the most important part, of why I’m doing this.

The first benefits I received, I hinted to in my last post, so I’ll list those “enlightenment feelings” that I first felt, here also. I call them  enlightenment  feelingsbecause of the weight they lifted off my shoulders, when I suddenly realized that I had full control of my weight. And because I had full control of my weight, I had much better control  of my health. It actually took about a month for the enlightenment to come. But once it came, I knew it, and I knew it firmly. It may have been the most liberating experience I’ve felt since I rode my motorcycle from coast to coast, border to border, and then some. But, that was 35 years ago before my severe closed head injury changed my life.

After spending 29 years gaining weight, from a relatively sedentary life, after living with hemiplegia for 29 years from the two strokes I had in 1984, after living with chronic pain for 20 years (pain bad enough it became nauseous at times), after more than twelve years of opioid medication to fight the pain, along with antidepressants, and a multitude of other drugs and supplements meant to counteract the side effects of the opioid medication (weight gain, constipation, dull senses, growing dumber each day, prostate enlargement and too may others to list here), after countless acupuncture sessions, after more nerve blocks than I ever should have had, after searching for any drug, any device – mechanical or electrical – every therapy, and even after researching all surgical options, I’d had enough.  The opioids did nothing but make me fat, lazy and stupid, and I just couldn’t take it anymore. I decided 2 years ago, that I was going to stop eating bread, and that was it. I was still going to keep eating other carbs, but I wasn’t going to eat bread, or anything that had any type of “bread product” in it. I told my family that, and I don’t think they believed me. I really don’t think any one in my family thought that I could re-arrange my lifestyle, to allow for this change in behavior. I call it a change in behavior, because that’s what it actually is. It take’s a change in your behavior, to fully give up carbs. This change in behavior has been so beneficial for me, that I don’t know if I can explain all the benefits here, and still keep this post to less than 200o words. But I’ll try.

You have to know this! The biggest benefit I received right off the bat (after about a month), was the weight loss I experienced, that I could not achieve, while I was eating carbs. I not only had lost the 10 lbs I was overweight, I lost another 10 lbs on top of that. I could do things, all of a sudden, that I couldn’t do since before my brain injury, 31 years prior. This actually brought about a new life in me. I’m not tired all the time like I use to be. Although I can (and do sometimes), work all day long on an empty stomach, I’m not hungry. Yes I feel the hunger pangs, but they’re so easy to ignore, that after a few seconds they disappear, and I don’t feel them anymore. That, in my estimation, is the greatest gift this diet has given me. My ability to go hour after hour after hour after hour, sometimes up to 16 hours, if I need to, without eating and most importantly without running out of energy. What a blessing this diet has been for me. Thank you Dr Perlmutter. You’ll never believe how much money I save, by not going down the bread aisle at the grocery store, anymore or the pasta aisle anymore. Staying out of the bakery has probably saved me the most money. I know it’s done more to save my life and preserve my health than it’s saved me in money, that I would have spent on groceries. The benefit it’s been for my health is truly unsurpassable, to say the least.

 A few of these benefits of my ketogenic diet that I’ve experienced starting approximately 23 months ago;

  1. Weight lifted off my shoulders  This was the feeling I first had when I realized that I was in full control of my weight and henceforth, my health. As I said before, this was the most liberating experience I’ve ever felt since my coast to coast motorcycle ride. What an exhilarating experience, I hadn’t felt that alive, like I said, in 35 years. All of my senses were growing keener, my capabilities were expanding at what felt like an exponential rate. I couldn’t believe it. I felt like shouting from the rooftops. I’m not the only one this has happened to. It happened to one of my best friends, who went on a ketogenic diet to help him with his high PSA levels, failing kidney functions, deep vein thrombosis and the threat of cancer after having a kidney removed due to a tumor on it. His ketogenic diet had allowed him to drop his medication list from 23 medications to 14, in the first 6 months. He’s since dropped his medication list down again to 8 medications. He tells me, he’s blowing his doctors away, because none of them are familiar with the benefits of this diet. He’s teaching them.
  2. More Energy is quite possibly the biggest benefit I’ve experienced. I honestly know what it’s like to run efficiently, on empty. This was a feeling that was completely foreign to me, prior to my transformation. I’ve never been able to keep going, like this before, on an empty stomach. And I do it day after day after day, never losing energy or stamina. My energy levels have risen to the extent, that I often work 18 hour days with few breaks and only one meal, that I nibble on throughout the day the day. I seldom have to stop just to eat. I only do so after being reminded, that I need to put something in my body, to keep it going. I some times get, strange feeling the hunger pangs without feeling hungry. I tell myself to embrace this feeling, because when this happens, I’m setting my brain up for future growth. Yes, I said that right,
  3. Brain growth. Studies have shown, that the fatter you are the smaller your brain is, and it only diminishes in size the fatter you grow. Studies have also shown that the thinner you are the larger your brain is, and often the exact opposite occurs, the thinner you are, the larger your brain is allowing you to enjoy the benefits of not only having a larger brain, but being able to use it. This has to do with the production of BDNF. BDNF, is what sets your brain up to allow it to grow, which you can find out more in Grain Brain. “Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, also known as BDNF, is a protein[2] that, in humans, is encoded by the BDNF gene.[3][4] BDNF is a member of the neurotrophin family of growth factors, which are related to the canonical Nerve Growth Factor. Neurotrophic factors are found in the brain and the periphery”, according to Wikipedia. “BDNF has also demonstrated to increase the body’s natural antioxidant defenses by boosting enzymes and molecules that are important in quenching excessive free radicals”, as reported by Dr Perlmutter. As I mention directly below, the hungrier you can go, the more BDNF your body can produce, as calorie restriction increases the production of this brain growth protein/antioxidant booster. Not only calorie restriction enables its production, but exercise also activates the production of this protein, making exercise as important as a good keto diet, to allow the body, to build this protein up in your system. This is what, initially, allowed our hunter-gatherer ancestors, to succeed in the animal world, where other mammals couldn’t keep up with them, in their evolutionary cycle. By running after game and from game, their exercise worked to build up their brains and mental powers. This in return allowed modern man to evolve into what we’ve evolved into, a mammal intelligent enough to build the world we live in today and allows us to look into space for the future. Could this BDNF be the substance in our bodies, that have allowed our species to advance, to the extent we have? With the added brain power, I should’t even have to explain how this is helping my finances.
  4. Build up of my immune system. As important as the BDNF, is to brain growth, it’s also an important antioxidant, which is what protects our cells from oxidative damage. NRF2  is another antioxidant, important to cellular protection. NRF2 is as important to cellular protection as BDNF is to brain growth. Nrf2 is a basic leucine zipper (bZIP) protein that regulates the expression of antioxidant proteins that protect against oxidative damage triggered by injury and inflammation.[2]. Several drugs that stimulate the NFE2L2 pathway are being studied for treatment of diseases that are caused by oxidative stress. Not surprisingly, calorie restriction has been demonstrated in a variety of laboratory animals to induce Nfr2 activation”, said Dr Perlmutter in his book Grain Brain, meaning the hungrier you can stay, the more you’ll build up this important antioxidant protein. And of course, having the ability to increase the amount of this antioxidant in your system, is only going to improve your life, by cutting down on the amount of time you present an illness or disease and that means less trips to your doctor. What more can you ask for? I don’t experience headaches anymore, I don’t experience colds or the flu as often as I did before, I just don’t get sick as much as I used to. Even the mucous in my sinuses has abated, not making me blow my nose as much as I used to. This alone has help cut back on the sinus headaches to the point, to where I only need an aleve for a headache about once every 2 or 3 months. This is something I could never experience while on my high carb diet. Living without  as much illness and disease, can save me countless dollars, that I would otherwise waste, just trying to either cure my ailments or even just live with the diseases that I would inevitably have, if I were to remain on a carbohydrate diet. We all know how cheap it is, not to get sick,
  5. Pain Control could be the next best thing that’s happened to me. My pain levels have continuously and steadily abated, from the high levels they were at, when I was eating carbs. This reduction in pain has opened up even more doors for me, as it’s easier to exercise harder, giving me a greater benefit from my workouts, not only for my body, but for my brain as well. being able to take advantage of a harder workout allows my body to build greater amounts of BDNF in my system, allowing my system to better regulate the oxidation to my cells that contribute to my pain by not allowing inflammation to infiltrate my body. The inflammation, is caused, directly, by eating a high carbohydrate diet. Cut the Carbs Cut the Inflammation. Cut the medical expense. It’s that simple.
  6. Stabilization of Emotions. This is the most important factor of this diet, as far as everyone who interacts with me on a daily basis knows,  I now don’t lose my temper as often. I don’t get frustrated as often, I don’t have the mood swings that I used to have, from the fluctuations in my blood glucose. That’s something that only happens on a high carb diet. On low carb diets, they’re virtually non-existent. I often wish that this information had been known 31 years ago. I wonder if it had, would a better diet had enabled me, to speed my healing, 31 years ago? I knew, then, that whole grains were good for me, because it was professed everywhere I went. Even though a good portion of these studies were available of examination at that time, few doctors, specialists, or nutritionists knew of them, because of the suppression of the studies. Who suppressed them and why, is going to take up, probably, multiple posts, to completely untangle that quagmire. The fact remains, that I am much more even tempered now, simply because my blood sugars don’t fluctuate, because I have virtually no blood glucose in my system. My system runs on fat and ketones, because fat, is more than 200% more efficient than carbs. Is it any wonder, that you have to eat so many of them, to get just half the energy out of them? My body runs so much better on this “high octane” fuel, that I save money every time I don’t go out to eat, because I won’t eat what they want to feed me. I have to be very careful when I dine out, and you should too, because restaurants know the cycle that bread puts your through, how it makes you hungry just after you eat it, because of the fluctuations in your blood sugars. That’s why they’re happy to give you a bread basket, as soon as your seated. They’re often taken with the hostess as she seats you, because they know that those rolls, biscuits, bread, or any other of a myriad of sugar destabilizers, are going to make you order more when you waitress or waiter comes to take it. More than saving money from not eating at restaurants, I save money every time I go to the grocery store, which actually, I’m visiting much less these days (and that saves me even more money). But this point begs the question, who shelved these studies, so the medical community any even more importantly, the FDA, who structures our food guidelines, that tell us what’s healthy to eat and what’s not, couldn’t even look at the data? Why didn’t they deem this information that important? Could it have been the involvement of the crop seed companies, who sell their crop seed to farmers to grow it? Cold it have been the grain industry? Could it have been the restaurant industry? Could it have been the bread industry? In all probability, it was all of them. Again this is something that I will have to address in another post. (It will probably take multiple posts.)
  7. Liberation From Corporate Control  This will probably be the most important aspect of this diet, in my life, going forward. The freedom I will be able to experience, because I’m not a slave to those pesky carbs, has more to do with corporate control than most of us want to realize. By controlling the amount of sugar they put in our diet, they can control out buying habits. Who hasn’t been addicted to chocolate? The reason they addict you to chocolate is, so you’ll buy more. They do it with chocolate, they do it with all candies, all breads, all pastas, all cereals, all forms of alcohol, even all juices and soft drinks, they want you addicted to this huge cash cow, because that’s the nature of the business they’re in. They make a consumable product, that’s so sweet and tasty, people everywhere will love it and buy it, and they don’t even have to put anything extra in it to make it addictive, because it already is, due to it’s massive sugar content. Again this gets into the concern of control, in these industries. What are their motives? Is their motivation little more than greed? Do they know, how they feeding the obesity epidemic, which feeds the diabetes epidemic, which feeds the dementia epidemic and also feeds the cancer epidemic, the cardio-vascular epidemic, the arthritis epidemic, the gastro-intestinal epidemic, the headache (migraine, sinus and stress) epidemic, and the Celiac disease that exists in the thousands of us? They obviously feed this food to their families, because they get just as sick as the rest of those who remain on a carb diet. This tells me that they don’t know what they’re forcing the world to live on and the consequences of living on it. I honestly think that all farmers, think that they are serving the world a purpose by growing this grain, for us. I honestly don’t believe that they know just how dangerous it really is. They can’t, and still grow it. So it must be, that they’re being lied to, to continue to grow it. After all this is what keep the money coming in.
  8. Freedom From Illness and Disease I know I touched on this before, in point 4 when I talked about the tremendous boost my in immune system, but I have to re-iterate how much benefit this one factor alone, has granted me. Not getting sick has to be the single best thing I can do for my body. It frees up so much time, that it’s not even funny. Not getting sick allows me to always be at the gym every day I need to go. This allows me to build up that BDNF, that’s so important in helping me to expand my mental capabilities. It also help me to re-inforce my auto-immune system, by building this same protein along with the rdf2 that also builds up my anti-oxidants. These two gems allow me to stay healthier, keeping me clear of the doctors office, except for routine wellness visits. The savings in money not spent is quite substantial. The fact of the matter is, that I already have too much wrong with me for anything else to go awry. I can’t afford to aggravate the problems I still have, the high blood pressure (even though I control it with my keto diet), chronic pain, hemiplegia, severe BPH (due to medications I was on for over 12 years), that all began with the severe closed head injury that I’ve learned to deal with, for 31 years. With all of these “pre-existing” conditions, left over from when I was on a carb diet, I can’t afford to acquire any more. The beauty is, I’m continuing to diminish my afflictions, instead of aggravating them, simply because of my MTC keto diet. One of the biggest improvements I had right off the bat, was the end to the acid indigestion, stomach cramps, and headaches. All of these were manifestations of the wheat I was eating. But they’ve been gone for so long now, that I forgot all about them, until 2 hours after I initially published this post. That’s why I had to add these last few lines. to this post.  (That’s the pleasure of writing a blog, you get to add to it, any time you wish, after all, it is a blog).

I’ve tried to keep this post to under 2000 words, but it looks like I’m not going to make it, but a few more words to express the wonders that this diet has brought to my body, should be set forth here, before I close out this edition of this series. In my life, I’ve never had as much energy as what I do right now.

I just got my blood work back earlier this week and after discussing my diet with my doctor, to make sure everything I’m doing is safe and productive.  All my blood tests have come back with results like I’ve never seen before. My high blood pressure is a thing of the past. My cholesterol levels, although being high (which is what I want), are better balanced than they’ve ever been in my entire life. All of the panels requested, in my blood work, were as normal as they’ve ever been. My doctor said, after seeing my results from my blood work, ” whatever you’re doing, is good. Keep it up.”

According to my doctor, I still have high blood pressure, because I’ve been diagnosed with it in the past. I’m just controlling it now. I don’t control mine with medication, though, and I won’t. I control mine with my diet. When my blood pressure was checked the other afternoon around 3PM (when your blood pressure is often the highest), it was 120/60, which  is the benchmark of normal blood pressure.

You just can’t get results this good on a carbohydrate diet. They’re best achieved with a low carb, ketogenic diet. They’re even more possible on a MCT ketogenic diet like the one I’m currently on. This diet has given me more power and energy than I have ever had in my life. My productivity has shot through the roof. My mental clarity has never been as sharp. This venture that started as just an attempt to end my pain, turned out to be a complete life changing transformation.

If this kind of a diet could to this for me, with all the health problems that I’ve had, can you imagine what it could do for you? The only way you’ll know, is if you try it out. I can make you this guarantee, that you will experience most all of the same benefits, that I’ve experienced, if you were to transform you diet into a high fat, low carb diet. Anyway you look at it, it’s a win, win, win situation, for anybody who has the courage to accomplish it.

Carbs! The New Death Sentence

Baguette With Cereals carbsI know you’ve been told that you need your carbs, that they’re healthy for you and that they must make up a major part of your diet. How long have they been at the bottom of our food pyramid, telling us,
they should make up the largest portion of our meals? How long have we been heeding this messagePopcorn Stock carbs? I’ve been doing it all my life. Haven’t you? But what if what you’ve been told was wrong?
What if we don’t need them in the quantities we’ve been told to eat them? gallery-thumbnailsCan
you eat too many of them? Who doesn’t? It’s easy to do. That’s due to their addictive nature. We’ll get deeper into that, later.

What if you don’t need carbohydrates at all?

Can you live without them?

Can you live without them and still be healthy?

The question I would rather ask, if you can be healthier without them, wouldn’t you want to be?

The Healthy Choice Stock Photo

ABSOLUTELY!

I can tell you right now, you can actually live healthier without them. I can tell you that you can live much easier without them. I can tell you that I live with less pain without them and  you too can live with less pain without them. I can tell you that you’ll have fewer headaches without them, I don’t have headaches anymore. I can tell you that you that you won’t have intestinal problems anymore and i can tell you that you can save your brain and make it smarter, without them. Does this mean that you were lied to in the past, when you were told that they had to be the the largest portion of your diet? to eat them in excess? Examine the evidence, analyze and assess the information, then you be the judge.

You Do Not Need Carbohydrates. 

At least, you don’t need them in the amounts that people everywhere are eating them. By everywhere, I mean everywhere. No place can be found where carbs are not a major part of the diet. To narrow down the problem with carbs, this post and entire site, in general, deals entirely with the high starchy carbs you find in all cereal grains, primarily wheat, barley, and rye because of the gluten that comes with it. But that’s only part of it, which we’ll talk about later in greater detail, because when you ingest gluten, you also eat gliadin. This is the part of wheat that can cause brain damage. That’s something else that we’ll talk about later, in greater detail when we look at how carbs have the capacity to shrink your brain.

But we should start with why you should limit your carbohydrate intake to as little as possible. For starters,  to ensure yourself better health, lower weight and most importantly, less illness and disease throughout your life. Secondly, to reduce your your pain levels by reducing inflammation. Thirdly,  to reduce headaches of any nature. and fourthly, to get better sleep. The full gamut of benefits is really much greater and is covered on the benefits posts of a Life Without Carbs and My Life Without Carbs .

Because your body can’t burn carbohydrates (sugars), it has to turn them into fat, so they can used for fuel. Your body burns fat, not carbs. It actually likes fat so much, it would much rather have it spoon fed to it rather than make its own. The problem with using carbs to supply your fat, is that the fat it turns into, is not a good fat. Most of it gets stored, instead of being used, and this is where the problem begins. It’s the consumption of this starchy food that leads to the massive amounts of weight gain that everyone who eats it, experiences. But then, most of you already know this. It’s just impossible to quit eating it, because of its addictive nature.

Stop Eating Bread

Time for a disclaimer;

Not all people are subject to this weight gain from cereal grains, only about 90% of us are. That means, about 10% of the population have no intolerances to wheat, gluten or any of the components that come with it. That also means that for 90% of us, we do have an intolerance to it. That means, for 90% of us, we express an allergic reaction to it. The problem with that is, the allergic reaction we experience is weight gain, and this ‘expansion‘ happens, whether it’s wanted or not. Anyone of us who has any kind of an intolerance to wheat, gluten or any other components of this grain will express this ‘expansion’, when we eat it.

Whether you want to accept it or not, carbs are dangerous.

I know you don’t want to realize this, but bear with me, it’s necessary for you to know what you’re putting in your body and what’s it’s doing to you. Even the smallest amount causes your body distress. This is why we shouldn’t be eating this food to begin with, remember, (bread = carbs);

For the short list, Carbs;

  1. Cause type 2 diabetes 

  2. Cause Celiac Disease

  3. Cause headaches

  4. Cause Peripheral Neuropathy

  5. Cause dementia and brain damage (type 3 diabetes)

  6. Cause heart disease

  7. Contribute to a multitude of gastrointestinal disorders

  8. Are the major contributor to more than half of all cancers

  9. Are the primary cause of LDL particles (“bad” cholesterol)

  10. Cause epileptic seizures

  11. Are the major contributor to arthritis 

  12. Are as addictive and deadly as heroin, cocaine, tobacco and alcohol.

  13. Rob you of your emotional control

  14. Rob You Of Your Teeth

  15. Are the root cause of aging

For the longer list, read Wheat Belly and Grain Brain. They’ll fully explain what these carbs do to you as well as how they do it.

Let’s take a closer look, though, at the above manifestations that can and do occur from ingesting this food.

  • Type 2 diabetes is caused primarily by obesity and carbs play a major part in obesity. Carbs cause diabetes because of their need for insulin to be turned into fat so the body can use it. This is the beginning of a downhill spiral that forces the body to make adjustments that it would never have to do, if it were on a diet of protein and fats instead of carbohydrates. Because carbs have to be broken down to their most basic sugar, glucose to be used as a fuel, the glucose flows through your blood stream before it can be metabolized on a cellular level, to be used for that fuel. Glucose needs insulin, to be turned into fat to be digested, to use for energy. Glucose cannot enter the cell without insulin to turn it into fat. The problem is, most of the glucose, after it gets turned into fat, it gets stored as fat in any one of the multitude of fat cells on your body. This takes place in the visceral fat (fat around the internal organs) first and foremost, where it’s the most dangerous. The more carbs you eat, the more insulin your body needs to metabolize those carbs and with a body full of sugar (carbs), you need a lot of insulin to turn all those sugars into fat. After processing a diet full of high carbohydrate food over your lifetime, your body starts to have problems, manufacturing enough insulin, so you can continue to digest the carbs you continue to eat. Because your insulin production can’t keep up with your carb intake, the sugar doesn’t get turned into fat and stays in your blood stream as sugar. It begins to build up in your blood system and you become diabetic. Hence the name insulin dependent diabetes or type two diabetes. Remove the carbs, remove the excess blood glucose. If you remove the glucose from the equation, you remove the diabetes. If you take away the carbs, you take away the obesity and excess glucose. Can it really be that simple? Duh!

    Is Diabetes Your Goal?

     

  • They cause headaches Dr Perlmutter, in his book, Grain Brain, takes 12 pages to explain how headaches are caused by carbohydrates, wheat and gluten in particular. As Dr Perlmutter is a board certified neurologist, and a nutritionist, I trust him. Wouldn’t you? Shouldn’t you?
  • Peripheral Neuropathy  Peripheral neuropathy (PN) is damage to or disease affecting nerves, which may impair sensation, movement, gland or organ function, or other aspects of health, depending on the type of nerve affected. Wikipedia says, It is important to recognize that glucose levels in the blood may spike to nerve-damaging levels after eating, even though fasting blood sugar levels and average blood glucose levels may still remain below normal levels (currently they typically are considered below 100 mg/dL for fasting blood plasma and 6.0% for HGBA1c, the test commonly used to measure average blood glucose levels over an extended period). Studies have shown that many of the cases of peripheral small fiber neuropathy with typical symptoms of tingling, pain, and loss of sensation in the feet and hands are due to glucose intolerance before a diagnosis of diabetes or pre-diabetes. Such damage often is reversible, particularly in the early stages, with changes in diet, exercise, and weight loss.”  According to Dr Davis, “A common cause of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. High blood sugars occurring repeatedly over several years damage the nerves in the legs, causing reduced sensation (thus allowing a diabetic to step on a thumbtack without knowing it), diminished control over blood pressure and heart rate, and sluggish emptying of the stomach (diabetic gastroparesis), among other manifestations of a nervous system gone haywire.” He goes on to say, “Of 35 gluten-sensitive patients with peripheral neuropathy who were tested positive for the antigliadin antibody, the twenty-five participants on a wheat- and gluten-free diet improved over one year, while the ten control participants who did not remove wheat and gluten deteriorated.” and ” Formal studies of nerve conduction gluten-consuming group were also performed, demonstrating improved nerve conduction in the wheat- and gluten-free group, and deterioration in the wheat- and gluten-consuming group.”
  • Celiac disease Celiac disease is caused by a reaction to gliadin, a prolamin (gluten protein) found in wheat, and similar proteins found in the crops of the tribe Triticeae (which includes other common grains such as barley and rye).[3] ” Gluten—which is Latin for “glue”—is a protein composite that acts as an adhesive material, holding flour together to make bread products, including crackers, baked goods, pasta and pizza dough. It’s this dough that like to gum up things. Remember the last time you pigged out on pizza? Remember the indigestion? You think, that came from the sauce? Think again.
  • Dementia and Brain Damage   Wheat is associated with dementia and brain dysfunction, triggering an immune stock-photo-44379182-alzheimer-s-word-cloudresponse that infiltrates memory and mind. Dr. William Davis explains it best in his best seller, Wheat Belly, “In one particularly disturbing Mayo Clinic study of thirteen patients with the recent diagnosis of celiac disease, dementia was also diagnosed. Of those thirteen, frontal lobe biopsy (yes, brain biopsy) or postmortem examination of the brain failed to identify any other pathology beyond that associated with wheat gluten exposure. Prior to death or biopsy, the most common symptoms were memory loss, the inability to perform simple arithmetic, confusion, and change in personality. Of the thirteen, nine died due to progressive impairment of brain function. Yes: fatal dementia from wheat. Dr Perlmutter explains it in more detail in Grain Brain. If you want to join all the other seniors who are all losing their minds to Alzheimer’s disease or dementia of any sort, all you have to do is to continue to eat your bread, pasta, crackers, pancakes, donuts, tortillas and other wheat products and you’ll be right there with everyone else. When was the last 36717144-a-depress-senior-person-with-wood-backgroundtime you misplaced your keys or forgot something? But look on the bright side of it, if you want to keep eating your donuts, you can, as long as you don’t mind that you won’t get to bathe yourself after a while, because you’ll soon have it done for you. I talk more about why this happens.
  • Heart disease (cardiovascular disease) has too many risk factors to list here, because there are many kinds of cardiovascular disease, but one of the biggest of concern, is the excess sugar in the blood (diabetes), as well obesity (excess weight the body need to supply blood to), as well as the high blood pressure and the  high Heart With Stethoscope And Money Stock Photoamount of plaque in the blood due to the glycation of cholesterol thanks to the extra sugar in the blood.  It is estimated that 90% of Heart disease is preventable.[3]  All the causes listed here are caused by eating wheat. Life Insurance agents have to ask 4 times the standard premium to submit an application for a policy on anyone who had both diabetes and high blood pressure, because of the high underwriting risk. If they want a policy, they have to pay 4 times the standard premium because of their condition. And the condition is preventable. What’s keeping you from declaring your independence?
  • They contribute to a multitude of  gastrointestinal  disorders by gumming up your digestive system with the gluten that comes with all wheat, especially the high gluten bread and pizza dough. All this glue sticks to the walls of your intestines blocking the digestion of other foods as well as itself. Everyone I know who loves to consume their daily pastries, pastas, biscuits, rolls and crackers, already know about the cramps that build up in their stomachs, due to the amount of undigested food that can’t get through the glue to get digested. This gluten, that’s in wheat, barley, spelt, rye and almost every other variant of wheat, is the substance that causes all the damage to your digestive tract. This glue plays a major role in acid indigestion, acid reflux, heartburn, constipation, nausea, and even general stomach upset.  With 10 different disorders of the digestive tract, gluten plays a gumming role in each one of them. You know the gas and bloating you get, sometimes after a meal? Guess what? Yeah, the major cause of that can be tracked to carbs. And it’s not even included in the above list. I can’t help but wonder why people continue to eat this pseudo food. I keep finding OTC medicine, that I’ve been purchasing over the years, just to combat, excess gas and bloating, acid indigestion, acid reflux, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, worse yet ulcers. All of these manifestations could be curbed with the reduction of  wheat and grains in our diets. That gurgling you just heard from your stomach, was that your stomach telling you to get your act together, and stop the carb intake?
  • Cancer gets its assist from the excess sugar that’s continuously circulating in your blood. It keep your ph levels in an acidic range which is an invitation to illness and disease. Acidosis is not something you want to have to deal with, with all the problems that it can produce. “Healthy human-arterial blood pH varies between 7.35 and 7.45. Changes in the pH of arterial blood (and therefore the extracellular fluid) outside this range result in irreversible cell damage.[1]Cancer loves it when your blood ph levels go into acidosis from the amount of sugar, carbs dump into your blood. This is what leaves your body open for attack, from a multitude of illnesses and diseases, cancer only being one of them. A more complicated explanation of how carbs cause cancer is on the post about the Diseases Caused By Plaque. Again, if cancer gets an assist from carbs, doesn’t it make sense that if you took away the carbs, you’d, at the least, hamper the disease’s, progression, if not stop it altogether. Can it be that simple? Can you give me a reason not try it and find out?
  • Epilepsy Illness Means Poor Health And Afflictions Epileptic seizures A peculiar syndrome of temporal lobe seizures unresponsive to seizure medications and triggered by
    calcium deposition in a part of the temporal lobe called the hippocampus (responsible for forming new memories) has been associated with both celiac disease and gluten sensitivity (positive antigliadin antibodies and HLA markers without intestinal disease).
  • Old Man With Walking Stick Showing Aged 3d Character Stock PhotoArthritis  is a disease of inflammation, which is aggravated by wheat more than anything else, because of the amount of sugars it dumps into the blood stream. Few other sources of sugar are higher than bread and wheat products. Not even table sugar itself. Arthritis is caused by inflammation. Inflammation is influenced by the amount of glucose in your blood, which in influenced by the amount of carbs you eat. Again, can it be that simple? Remove the carbs and you can ease, if not eliminate, it’s influence on Arthritis.
  • Addiction According to Dr Davis, “There is no doubt: For some people, wheat is addictive.” It has to do with the effect it has on our neurotransmitters and neuropeptides Phrase "addicted To Sugar" Made Of Red Sugary Candies Stock Photo, primarily Serotonin and Endorphins. “Endorphins (“endogenous morphine”) are endogenous opioid neuropeptides.” They’re the feel good neuropeptides . This is the same neuropeptide that’s activated by alcohol, tobacco, heroin, cocaine, marijuana and all other substances of an addictive nature, that give you the ‘morphine‘ feeling. When was the last time, you had to have something to eat? What was it, you hungered for? How long was it before you had eaten the previous time? How long can you go without eating? I often go 18 hours a day eating enough for 1 snack, because of my keto diet. Can you?
  • Emotional Distress and Disorder takes place every time you ingest this food, in any form it’s ingested, this is directly due to the to the fluctuations in your blood glucose, caused by the consumption of wheat and grain foods. Blood sugars go up, moods rise. blood sugars go down, moods depress. It’s that simple. The point I want to bring up, is it’s the rise and fall of your blood sugars that have the biggest impact on your emotional status and hence your emotional health. This in itself leads to behavior that, many times, should never occur in the first place. And it would never occur in the first place, if it weren’t for the abundance of this food in our diet. Behavior like violence, propagated by anger and antagonism. Both of these emotions are influenced as much, if not more than anything else, by the foods we eat. I submit that these fluctuations in emotional levels, are due to the changes in blood glucose, in all who eat this food, and all have been influenced by it. If you remove the wheat and grains, you remove the influence. If you remove the influence, you can easier retain your senses. It’s that simple. Behavior driven by fear, is quite possibly the biggest danger our society faces, and this food source is a major cause in driving this behavior, because of of it’s palatable nature. Sugar tastes good. People love to ear it. Mass consumption of it alters the emotional status of everyone who eats it, when their blood sugars fluctuate. It’s these fluctuations that cause a large majority of the abhorrent behavior that pervades society everywhere. It’s these fluctuations combined with the influence of mass media that are driving most of the terrorism in the world today. This theft of your emotional control, is what makes you a slave to corporate influence and subject to their desires, not yourdesires. How long do you want to keep your mental faculties?
  • They Rob You Of Your Teeth Ask any archaeologist, The appearance of rotten teeth marked the beginning of the agricultural age in our ancient history. It moved us from being hunter-gatherers, to farmers. Even though this transition was one of the first moves into civilization, It also served to introduce our bodies to the ravages of carbohydrate nutrition. Fortunately, for our ancestors sake, it wasn’t as dangerous then, as it is, now. It hadn’t been genetically modified.  The wheat that was grown then was unmodified einkorn. It didn’t rob us of our senses, then, because it didn’t fluctuate blood sugars to the extent, that all wheat and grain products it does today. Whatever was eaten had 100 times the fiber in it to slow down the absorption of sugars into the system, fluctuating the blood glucose, in the massive ways they do today. Hence, they didn’t cause the diseases, then, that it causes today. I submit, that it this sudden fluctuation in sugars, that is causing 88% of all illnesses and diseases, that we have to deal with in our modern society. That, in itself, makes us victims of our own advancement, going back to the start of civilization. But, that’s only looking at the past, at the reason why we’re ingesting this food that ruins our teeth. Now, for why it does that. Most of you already know why. It can be summed up in one word, sugar. Sugar rots teeth. Not meat, not cheese, not eggs, not fat, nothing that we consume rots teeth like carbohydrates do. The gluten that we love so much, makes it stick to our teeth, and this is where it begins to do its damage. The sugars work there way into the enamel of your teeth and the decay begins. You brush it away, you floss it away, and you do the best you very can, to keep you teeth as clean as possible. And when you make it to your 75 birthday, you pat yourself on the back, for still having all of your teeth. Or, do you? Have there been times when you couldn’t brush and floss? Do you brush every time you  take a sip of a sweet drink, or a drink of alcohol? All the sugar contained in those liquids, swirls around your mouth for hours and hours, working on decaying your teeth. Remove the sugar, remove the decay. It’s that simple.
  • Carbs  are the root cause of aging due to the AGEs that they cause. This factor is at the root of so many disorders and diseases, that it deserves a blog of it’s own. Read it here

With all of these ailments, illnesses, diseases, disorders, afflictions, and discomfort being caused by these carbs,

The questions I keep asking myself,

Who in their right mind would ever agree to submit themselves to this torture, by eating them?

Those who don’t know that they do!

Most of us know that sugar is bad for us, but what too many don’t want to fully recognize, is that carbs are sugar. With bread being the most popular carb we eat, every time we eat bread, we know that we’re eating carbs, but we don’t want to equate those carbs with sugar, while in all actuality they are. If Sugar Kills, Carbs Kill.

We know that Sugar Kills, but we don’t want to listen to that song because of our addiction to it.

All of the manifestations listed above have been documented in several publications, but they’ve seldom been presented for review and examination, to the medical community. Not until Dr’s Davis’ and Perlmutter’s books, Wheat Belly and  Grain Brain, came forth to warn us about the atrocities this supposedly nutritious food has been doing to us, did we even know we were eating something that is so poisonous (at least to the 90% of us, who are allergic to it).

This, in my estimation, is the biggest problem. Most people are allergic to it. I estimate that more than 90% of the population have some sort of intolerance to wheat, gluten or the gliadin that’s in the wheat. That says, that more than 90% of the people are allergic to bread, pasta, crackers, cereals like Wheaties, Wheat Germ, or Special K (to name just a few), any breaded chicken, shrimp, veal, all breaded fried appetizers, all pastries, all nutrition bars, all cereal bars, anything that has any percentage of wheat or wheat substance in it. The list is too long, even for the length of this post. The question this begs, is why is this food still advertised as being healthy?

Banner-improper-nutrition-health-care-concept-diseases-caused-unhealthy-nutrition-diet- carbs

If 90% of the population, (as I speculate) are allergic to wheat, that explains the claim that I made at the beginning of this post,

You Do Not Need Carbohydrates.

If you’re one of the 90% who are allergic to them, you’d be much better off without them. With as many problems as this food brings with it, it makes absolutely no sense to continue eating it except to feed your addiction. So this brings us to our next problem, getting off of our addiction to them.

The question is then, how do we stop eating them? How do we get this food that’s been such an important part of our diet since time immemorial, out of our diet? For that, you’ll have to continue on to Carbs, how to cut back.”

If anybody feels that any of these conclusions are nothing more than opinion, my challenge to you is, prove me wrong. I invite you to research any and all statements, facts, data of any sort, or links, that I’ve provided in these posts, to invalidate any thing. I’ll even go to the extent to challenge anyone to prove me wrong, in any of my statements. It will generate a good civil discussion, and that’s something I can look forward to, anytime.

My sincere wish, is that everyone who reads these pages verifies and validates what they read. Only then will they know that the information contained within this site is 100% valid. Maybe then, all who read this, will change their behavior and in turn, change the behavior of the whole world.

My challenge to you, is to give a low carb diet a try, for 2 months. If you don’t see any benefit after just 2 months, of abstinence, go back to your high carb diet. But please, prepare yourself to suffer the consequences. You must have given it an honest try, and not cheated at all, for this to work. Any deviation, will not let your body go into ketosis and that’s what’s important.  You have to look at it like your life depends on it, because, it does.

Healthy Weight Loss For Permanent Results

QUICK WEIGHT LOSS vs HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS

It seems everyone is looking for the secret that will instantly shed excess weight and keep it off for the rest of your life. The fact of the matter is, there are quick ways to lose weight, which you’ll probably put right back on as quickly as you took it off, and there’s a healthy weight loss program which can be achieved with effective and simple habits and practices that can last for the rest of your life. And it’s not really as much a program as it’s a change in the way you live and eat. I say habits and practices because that’s what you need for a new mindset and it’s a completely new way of thinking you need if you’re going to keep that weight off after you initially lose it.

CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE, CHANGE YOUR BODY

To have a  new mindset means that we have to give up our addictions and adopt totally new healthier habits and practices that not only influence our bodies but our brains as well. Because it all starts with our brain. Our brain controls everything including our weight, and it’s our addiction to sodas, sugar added high carbohydrate foods and salt-laden processed foods that damage our brain more than anything else that we have full control over. Instead of sodas, sugar added simple carbohydrates and salt-laden processed foods being your addiction, you’ll have to make exercise your new addiction. But this I can guarantee you, if you do, you’ll be a lot happier with yourself.

Why do I say your new addiction should be exercised? Anybody who’s felt the power that Endorphins have on your body and the benefit that regular exercise has on your body already knows why. There’s nothing more important to your health than keeping your body prepared to fight off illness and disease, and the only way to do that is to keep the body fit and as finely tuned as a new car.   You might wonder why I say we’re addicted to sodas, sugar added simple carbohydrates and salt-laden processed foods? When was the last time you tried to say no to any of them? If you were able to, how long did that last? Have you gotten through a whole day without eating any of these types of foods? It’s darn near impossible to do. Can you live without them?  Of course, you can, you just choose not to…and that’s the addiction.  I submit to you that there’s no difference between that addiction and any other addiction. Are you healthier without them? Of course, you are, but your choice to not stop eating them is where the addictions lie.

When dieting, you fight the addiction for a while and often lose weight for just a short time only to put it back on after you give back into the addiction. As long as your mindset has not changed, you remain addicted. That’s why you need a new mindset. You have to break the addiction.  Addiction tempts you to eat these wrong kinds of foods. Addiction doesn’t want to eat healthy foods because they can’t feed the addiction. Healthy foods feed the body, not the addiction.

HEALTHY DIET FOR HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS & HEALTHY BODY 

There are too many diseases that are attributed to obesity and being overweight, and many people are falling victim to those diseases. And the list of diseases seems to be a growing list.  Diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, high cholesterol, bad knees, bad hips and even many cancers can be attributed to being overweight, making the need to lose that weight even that more important. If you’re going to lose weight permanently you need to break the addiction to sodas, sugar added high carbohydrate foods. Dr. Daniel Amen in his book, Use Your Brain to Change Your Age says he’s very familiar with addiction. He understands it all too well. He’s had patients tell him that they’d “rather get Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, cancer or diabetes than give up their sugar”. He goes on to say that certain combinations of fat, sugar, and salt actually work on the same areas of the brain as heroin and can be totally addictive.

This is why you need to change your addiction to fattening food to that of exercise. Exercise creates Endorphins and increases blood flow. Creating those Endorphins will help you feel good about yourself as well as helping to ease your pain and even though today’s foods can create those feel-good chemicals in your brain, instead of creating them with foods that make you fat, you can create them in a healthy way, with exercise. The added blood flow throughout your body will benefit you in more ways than you can imagine. The added blood flow not only benefits the body but the brain as well. You’ll soon see a difference in your cognitive abilities. You’ll  soon start remembering those little things you so easily forgot before and you’ll start thinking a lot clearer.

START AN EXERCISE PROGRAM

Although exercise is an important aspect of maintaining an optimal BMI or Body Mass Index, a more important number to keep track of is your waist to height ratio. (It’s also easier to calculate.) Your waist should be half of what your height is. Therefore if your height is 5’8″ or 68″, your waist should be 34″, one half of what your height is. When you calculate this, don’t go by your pant size, use a tape measure and measure your waist at the belly button. Only this will give you a clearer idea of what your actual waist size is and what your overall health is really like.

When it comes to exercising, cardiovascular exercises play an important role in weight loss. The best diet procedure in the world may not get you to your ideal weight if you don’t also exercise regularly. If you do cardiovascular exercises along with a little resistance training and core training at least four times a week, for at least a 40 minutes each session, then it will help your weight loss immensely. You may want to increase the time and intensity after you have adjusted to your workout. If you can, run also, because it will strengthen your heart, relieve your stress, and stimulate your immune system. For almost an hour it will burn around 700 or more calories but the amount will vary depending on several factors including the strength of workout, the body weight of the person running, and the inherent efficiency of his or her metabolism. Compared to walking, running burns more than twice the fat – but also requires about twice the effort.

TO ACHIEVE A HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSSREMEMBER  TWO THINGS, REGULAR EXERCISE, AND A BALANCED DIET.

  1. Regular exercise can help protect you from heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, insulin-dependent diabetes, obesity, back pain, osteoporosis, and can improve your mood and help you to better manage stress.
  2. A balanced diet means breaking the addiction of sodas, sugar added simple carbohydrates and salt-laden processed foods and switching over to healthier types of whole foods and water that can supply nutrition and energy for the maintenance of body cells, tissues, and organs, and support normal growth and development.

YOUR DIET DICTATES YOUR BODY TYPE

Your diet should be only a diet of natural and organic foods. You should make only healthy food choices. Avoid all processed foods. These almost always contain extra salt and chemicals to give the product “shelf life” and that can cause irreparable harm to your organs, namely your kidneys, liver, and brain. Be sure that the majority of your daily intake comes from fruits and vegetables because that’s where most vitamins, minerals, and fiber come from. Do not give in to your addiction to sodas, sugar added high carbohydrate foods or salt-laden processed foods.  Start reading labels on the food you buy. If you can’t understand what’s in it, there’s a fair chance that you shouldn’t be eating it.

DIET WITHOUT EXERCISE  IS LIKE A CAR WITHOUT WHEELS

While changing your diet is crucial, it’s only half of the equation. You must include exercise to make sure your weight loss stays lost. Exercise regularly.  Choose an activity that fits your personality and level of health. Exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.  Not only does exercise increase energy levels, improve general health, circulation and posture, it can also help to control pain by creating Endorphins. If you like swimming, go swimming regularly. If you like to go for walks, walk briskly and do it frequently. Don’t always look for that closest parking space when you go shopping. Take that opportunity to get some exercise and walk the extra distance. Although many people enjoy regular strenuous or high impact exercise such as aerobic workouts or long distance running, mild and moderate exercise are also beneficial. For the people who want to lose weight and improve their health at the same time, exercise is crucial. It significantly improves the capacity of the heart and lungs. It requires no special training. It is cost-effective and yet the benefits gathered far out way the cost. The cost of exercising isn’t nearly as great as that of a catastrophic illness and although exercising can’t prevent all diseases, when combined with diet, it can limit a great majority of them.

DON’T WAIT TIL IT’S TOO LATE TO LOSE WEIGHT

With added weight comes a host of illnesses and diseases like Heart Disease, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Cancer, gallstones, ulcers & too many other gastrointestinal diseases to mention, bad hips and bad knees are all but just a few. Although many of these diseases are for seniors, no age is immune from getting any of them. Reason being…as we age we gain weight because our metabolism slows down and the extra weight brings on the illness & disease. When you’re young, it seems like these are problems to worry about in the future. But time flies by, tomorrow becomes today and before you know it you’re asking yourself, how did I get to be so old? By keeping your weight in the healthy range, you are less likely to be troubled by illness and disease as you age and in the long run, you’ll find yourself growing older much slower. But you shouldn’t just take it from me. Your healthy weight loss advice should get it straight from the experts below.

Tips For Permanent Weight Loss

Tips For Permanent Weight Loss

You know as well as I do that all weight loss tips are not created equal. Some are of vital importance and others are useless and should be ignored. These tips, however, are of vital importance and should be followed if you want to arrive at your weight loss goal anytime in the near future. They are easy to follow and if you do follow them, you will love the results that they bring.

Key Dates

It is important to set key dates for your weight loss goals and then strive to meet those goals before those dates. For example, if you plan to lose 10 pounds within the first  month and then 5 pounds for every month thereafter, until you reach your ultimate goal of 30 lbs, this gives you a plan to meet your goal and you know that if you are doing the right things and you don’t meet your goal, you  need to change your way of doing things to achieve your goal. More than anything, having a clear goal and a date by which to achieve it gives you something to celebrate when you do achieve it. This little piece of achievement can give you more motivation to carry you through to your final weight loss goals and in the end, will prove more important to than almost anything else.

The Right Diet

Eating the right foods may be the most important part of your weight loss journey. It’s essential to limit your intake of grains and starchy foods that are not high in fiber and nutrition. Bread, especially white bread, are some of the hardest foods to break away from. This is because of their addictive nature which, in turn, is due to the genetic engineering that today’s wheat has gone through. It’s been modified to get more output from one crop of wheat that what used to be grown just 50 years ago and in doing so it’s less nutritious and more fattening. Worse yet it leaves you craving for more of it, simply because it is less nutritious. Thus, it’s addictive nature. According to cardiologist William Davis, MD, author of the bestselling book Wheat Bellymodern wheat is a highly addictive complex carbohydrate since it contains a special protein called gliadin, which has the same effect on brain receptors as opium. What you should eat is food high in fiber as the World Health Organization concluded that dietary fiber was the only dietary component that had convincing evidence showing a protective effect against weight gain and obesity.  High fiber foods include all fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts. Although grains used to be on this list, I can’t in good conscience include wheat anymore and it’s even difficult to include the other grains like oat, rice, and corn from what I’ve learned from Dr. Daniel Amen in his book Use Your Brain to Change Your Age that grains aren’t all that good for your health or weight loss. Dr. Davis reaffirms this in his book, Wheat Belly.

Consistency

nutrition-resources weight lossBeing Consistent is key when it comes to losing weight. As I’m sure you already know, it’s much harder to lose weight than it is to put it on. You need to be consistent with your weight loss efforts if you want to see changes. This is a crucial tip that you have to abide by to give you the weight loss you desire. To give you an example of why you need to be consistent, think about what is really required in order to lose weight. You can’t go back to what put your weight on. Albert Einstein once said, “problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them”, meaning to change the way you are, you have to change the way you do things. If eating certain food made you overweight in the first place, you cannot continue to eat those foods. To change your weight you must change the foods you eat. This means no more high sugar drinks (soda & juice drinks), no more processed foods (quick pre-made dinners), no more fast foods (floured and fried foods). Instead, these need to be replaced with high fiber fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, sprouts and lean meats. Start to read labels. Read them religiously. Know what you’re putting in your body. If you don’t know what’s in the foods buy off the shelf, how can any you expect to know what you’re eating?

Cardio AND Weight Training

Many of my female clients are very quick to shy away from weight training and conversely, many of my male clients are very quick to shy away from cardio training. However, in order to achieve a well-rounded physique, you need to be doing both. This is because the more muscle we have, the higher our metabolism becomes and the more fat we burn while resting. Also, cardio is, in my opinion, the most effective way of burning fat, as it can be performing by people of all experience levels and can be performed almost anywhere. When we build muscle and burn fat at the same time, we accelerate our progress, as the 2 results will eventually meet in the middle. So whether you are just starting out or a fitness veteran, these 3 weight loss tips will help you get more out of your exercise and diet plan. Remember then to set specific goals for yourself, be consistent with your efforts and mix up your training from time to time.

Secret Foods that Promote Weight Loss

Secret Foods that Promote Weight Loss

These secret foods that promote rapid weight loss are not just the “ordinary” superfoods like the cherry, the avocado or extra virgin olive oil.     Imagine a food–or a group of foods–a little-known group of foods that alone can elevate moods, enrich your body with almost hundreds of minerals, help you lose weight and taste great all at the same time?

Healthy Woman With Vegetables : Young woman with assorted grocery products isolated on white background

The 7 foods that promote weight loss I want to talk about do all this and more… and These foods are from the corners of the world and they will pack a super-punch into your everyday diet.   The reason they work so well is that they each are highly mineralized which can help you find the nutrients you need and not be hungry all the time.

The Secret Foods that Promote Weight LossSuperfood #1: Cacao (Raw Chocolate)

Want more energy? Try some raw chocolate.   Raw chocolate is one of the most powerful sources of magnesium on the planet. Not only does magnesium help with alertness and activity, it also helps elevate your mood.   Magnesium is one of the most deficient minerals in the human body. Depending on where you find your studies 60-80% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. No wonder we’re sluggish, agitated and stressed!   Raw chocolate is the same reason you’ve heard that chocolate is good for you… except that the cooked and processed form that you get in your Hershey’s bar does not have the same composition as it does when it’s raw.   Raw chocolate also contains tryptophan–an essential amino acid–which helps naturally produce serotonin in your body. This is great news for those who need an emotional boost.   You can buy raw chocolate in the shell (it is a bean), but it’s easiest if you buy it without.   Since the cacao bean is actually fairly bitter, it is best to mix it with various other foods that promote weight loss like pumpkin seeds and goji berries for a super, power-packed, nutrient-rich snack that will get you through even the toughest days.

The Secret Foods that Promote Weight Loss – Superfood #2: Goji Berries

Move over carrot.   This little, bright red berry from China is one of the most potent sources of beta-carotene and vitamin C. These are both fantastic antioxidants.   Goji berries also contain 18 amino acids and over 21 minerals which give them a serious power-punch to anyone’s system.   Goji berries help stimulate your body’s natural human growth hormone which is critical in anti-aging and longevity.   You can only get them dried in the US, so don’t expect to find them in any produce section. Some health food stores will carry them, but your best bet is online.   Goji berries are a fantastic snack–eat them just like you would raisins–to add to your superfood arsenal and are a great addition to any herbal tea.

The Secret Foods that Promote Weight Loss – Superfood #3: Maca

Maca is a Peruvian root powder that is used to increase strength and vitality. It has more mineral content than potatoes and carrots–containing iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iodine.   The Peruvians and many others claim, Maca can help fight depression, help with anemia and improve overall memory and vitality.   This powerful food is also a libido stimulant!   Maca powder is best taken mixed with warm water in a tea. Maca has a strong taste and this can be softened with goji berries or honey.

The Secret Foods that Promote Weight Loss – Superfood #4: Raw Honey

I’m not talking about the honey in the little bear. I’m talking real, unprocessed, raw honey.   Raw honey contains enzymes, phytonutrients, resins, and propolis–bee glue. This unique combination of properties makes it versatile not only as a food but as an anti-bacterial agent.   As a food, raw honey can raise antioxidant levels in the body, restore muscle glycogen after a workout and help lower cholesterol and the risk of certain cancers.   As a topical substance, it can decrease infection and work just as well as alcohol solutions.   Use it as a sweetener, put some in your teas or your water, or just have a small spoonful for a quick pick me up.   (Be sure not to heat it to a high temperature. Heat will destroy many of its best qualities.)

The Secret Foods that Promote Weight Loss – Superfood #5: Spirulina

This superfood and next might scare some people off.   Don’t compromise your health by not trying this food!   Spirulina, is algae that have high vegetable protein content, is high in B-12 vitamins and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).   GLA and Vitamin B-12 are connected to mood, memory, and general energy vitality. Many people believe that low B-12 levels for long periods of time are actually the cause of “old age” symptoms–fatigue, memory loss, confusion, etc.   Just because it’s algae doesn’t mean that it’s gross! The first time I tried it, I was surprised that it tasted so good.   Buy it in flakes and sprinkle it on your salads, add it to a smoothie, sauces or soups.

The Secret Foods that Promote Weight Loss – Superfood #6: Sea Vegetables

Sea vegetables are grown in an environment full of minerals that our body needs for optimal health–the ocean.   The ocean water has up to 92 minerals can be absorbed by the plants growing in the sea.   This makes sea vegetables are one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Seaweed–compared to land vegetables–is one of the best vegetable sources of calcium, which is fantastic for muscle and bone development, strength and growth.   Don’t worry if the idea of eating seaweed grosses you out. Your health food store will have different seaweed granules that you can use as a salt substitute and you’ll never know the difference.   Nori, dulce, and kelp are three of the most readily available sea vegetables.

The Secret Foods that Promote Weight Loss – Superfood #7: Pumpkin Seeds and More…

The raw pumpkin seed, just like the cacao bean, is another feel-good food. It is a great source of magnesium and tryptophan. You can find this super-seed right in your backyard if you live in the Northeastern US!   Pumpkin seeds also are great sources of protein, fat and other essential minerals.   Other great seeds and foods that promote weight loss are hemp seed, flax seed, and raw sunflower seeds. These all contain good fats and good protein for optimal health.   If you’re eating a primarily vegetarian or vegan diet, be sure to add these seeds to your diet to get some good protein. If you’re NOT a vegetarian or vegan, be sure to add these seeds to your diet to get some good protein (not a typo!).   They are great to add to salads as an extra garnish or great as a snack or mixed in with some other superfoods.

But you shouldn’t just take my word for it. You should learn from the experts…

Lose Weight With A Permanent Diet Plan – Best Diet Plan For Permanent Weight Loss

Lose Weight Sensibly With A Permanent Diet Plan

Too many people with weight problems are in search a diet plan for weight loss and they want one that not only will deliver results but maintain the results, as well. Because many of the programs that exist out there, take advantage of most people’s lack of knowledge and fail to do any good for them.  There are many challenges when it comes to losing weight, like giving up on your addictions to fast foods and processed foods, changing your diet, starting an exercising routine. The truth is, that the type of weight loss program that you follow, has everything to do with the results that you are going to achieve. If you are working with an in-efficient plan, expect the results to be inefficient.

Diet Plan : Magnified illustration with the word Diet Plan on white background. diet

One of the major challenges that you are going to have to deal with when going on a diet to lose weight is the issue of gaining the weight back once you lose it. Many people realize, after their initial weight loss, that they start to gain it all over again despite losing it. As you probably know this is the yo-yo dieting effect. This happens because after most people initially lose the weight they want to lose, they revert to their old eating habits and like magic, the weight comes back. The trick in weight loss is to maintain your new weight once you have lost those extra pounds. This means breaking old habits and acquiring a new attitude which will involve a couple of things more than just exercising and a healthy diet. In order to succeed in your best diet plans for weight loss, you should keep the following tips in mind.

Qualify your Diet

First, Examine your diet as it is right now. Your weight loss program should have clear guidelines on what to eat and what not to eat. This food should be from all the food groups; no group should be neglected in your pursuit of a healthier lifestyle.

If you are a victim of this yo-yo dieting dilemma and have been following the old food pyramid from the USDA‘s 1992 model where grains are on the bottom and take up the largest portion in the pyramid, it’s no wonder you’re having trouble keeping off the weight once you lose it. We now know that it’s what’s on the bottom of this pyramid, the processed grains and refined sugar (another grain usually), that’s keeping everyone from maintaining their optimal weight once they lose it.

Bleached white flour and white sugar have been found to have addictive qualities to them, making any attempts to break the habit of eating these food products almost impossible. And it’s these foods, that provide plenty of sugars for the body, either directly through the glucose in sugar or indirectly in the complex carbohydrates of bread and pasta, that are making everyone overweight, fat and obese. These foods work on the same receptors in the brain that heroin and cocaine do, creating an addiction that’s very difficult if not impossible to break. The problem with these foods is that they don’t provide the body with the nutrients that it needs to function properly. They simply provide the body with empty calories, like alcohol and soda.

Set Your Goals      

Secondly, your weight loss plan should have achievable targets each week. Such targets should not be in any way complicated but should be very safe and practical to achieve. There are different theories when breaking any addiction, whether to go “cold turkey” and change all at once or try changing a little bit at a time, hoping that you won’t fall back into too many of the old habits, the same habits that you’re trying to say goodbye to.

My theory is if you want the change to take place faster, go cold turkey and completely give up your old life of eating the addictive food that got you to where you are now. Albert Einstein said “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them”, meaning you have to change your habits that created your problems if you’re going to change and do away with the problem. Your problem isn’t that you’re overeating so much as it’s a problem of eating the wrong foods. This means you need to change your eating habits.

Your habit of eating processed foods, fast foods, sugar and salt-laden foods is going to have to change. You need to change your diet to that of vegetables, fruits, and legumes, primarily, and grains, dairy, and meat following. Your grains need to be whole grains at that, not the processed and refined bleached white flour products and white sugar that provide no nutrition except for the empty calories they have. But whole grains with the germ and bran still intact in the grain because it’s the germ and bran that carry all the nutrition and fiber of the grain, and this is what makes it so healthy.

Create new habits

Third, you need to replace your addiction to fattening foods with an addiction to exercise. I’m sure you have many acquaintances that currently exercise. Some of these may even exercise on a regular basis. Take a look at any of them and compare their bodies to yours. From a gamblers standpoint, I’d give you 8-1 odds that those who exercise regularly have a body that you wouldn’t mind having.

Although, I do know some whom exercise on a regular basis and still have trouble losing weight. This is because they’re eating the wrong kind of foods. They’re sticking to their old addictions (probably without the knowledge that they’re even addictions), and are stuck in the same routine of yo-yo dieting. They’re unable to give up the processed and refined foods that give you the calories but not the nutrition. I’ve seen it too many times, the changes that happen when a person combines eating the right kind of foods with exercise.

These changes are something that will happen to you, provided you are willing to make the necessary changes. And after you have lost some weight, the best method to keep that weight off is to not cave into your addiction and continue exercising. It goes without saying that exercise not only gets your blood flowing around your whole body (including your brain) but also enhances your health to give you a longer and more satisfying life.

Qualify Your Plan

Fourth – Confirm the qualifications of the diet plan you want to follow by researching that plan. Are the people providing the plan qualified to advise you on your diet and weight loss or are they just somebody blowing hot air? Are they nutritionists or doctors? Something you should always check before you invest your time and money into any program is whether the people behind it are actually qualified to offer sound advice and instructions on the matter. In addition, check out the portfolios of even those who are offering counseling and other support services as well.

Consider Budgetary Constraints

Fifth – Analyze how much you will have to pay for your new diet as opposed to how much you will have to pay if you don’t change your diet. How much is it going to cost you if you continue on the same course you’re on now. Is your condition in danger of giving you diabetes? or high blood pressure? or high cholesterol? or cancer? (being overweight and obesity have shown to be a risk for cancer), do you want to fall victim to Alzheimer’s disease or any of a myriad of other diseases associated with being overweight?

Dr. Daniel Amen says in his book Use Your Brain To Change Your Age, the more excess weight you carry, the smaller your brain becomes. The same foods that lead to obesity also contribute to Alzheimer’s disease and if the cost of any of these illnesses or diseases are more than you’re  willing to pay, you have to get to a point where the odds of getting any of these diseases barely exist. Having a healthy body does exactly that. Giving your body the nutrition it needs to fight off these illnesses and diseases should become your highest priority. It should be more important than anything else because if you aren’t here to provide for your family, who will?

Weight Loss For The Long-Term

Finally, make sure that you have a support system set up with your family and friends, even if this means changing friends. One of the key features of any good diet plan for weight loss is that it will always have an effective support system. It helps more than I can say to have a friend or family member to work with on your weight loss journey. You can’t find better support than someone you’re doing it with.

Weight Loss Tips That Will Slim You Down

Weight Loss Tips That Will Slim You Down

When trying to lose weight, you should never do it alone. The best thing to do is to talk with your physician to establish a plan. After that, you should find a group of friends and family that can give you their support. With a good support system and the right advice, weight loss will happen.

You need to change your diet. If being overweight is a problem for you, remember what Albert Einstein said, “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them“. This means that if you’re eating the wrong kind of foods and those foods put weight on you, you cannot continue to eat those same kinds of foods. You must, therefore, change your diet. You are what you eat, as it’s  the foods you eat that have more impact on your body than anything else.

If you have a problem with weight right now, I can almost guarantee you that you’re eating the wrong kind of foods. You’re probably eating a lot of bread, pastries, floured and fried foods. These are the kind of foods that I grew up on because my mother didn’t know any better. I didn’t know any better until I started to research it. Only then were my eyes opened. I learned that instead of filling up on grains (which were on the bottom of the food pyramid), I should be filling up on fruits and vegetables that are high in complex carbohydrates and fiber, and are packed with micro-nutrients like carotenoids and phytochemicals. I also make sure I get enough protein and essential oils, like olive oil and fish oil.

For protein, meat isn’t necessary, although one portion a day does have its benefits. A better source of protein is to get it from legumes like beans and peas, and nuts, all have much more fiber than that of meat for your sources of protein. Fiber has been recognized by the World Health Organization as being a component that actually contributes to weight loss and fights obesity. In 2003, the World Health Organization concluded that dietary fiber was the only dietary component that had convincing evidence showing a protective effect against weight gain and obesity.

 How do you get fiber in your diet? – Simple, eat more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Notice I said whole grains and not processed grains like bleached white flour and bread, and semolina pasta. Bleached white flour, the primary ingredient in white bread and semolina pasta all are made of wheat without the best part of it, the bran and germ. These are the parts of the grain that have the protein and nutrients in it and provide you with the natural fiber that it has without the bleaching and processing. Instead of buying and eating semolina pasta, you should try whole wheat pasta.

Use fewer sauces and dressings in your foods – Sauces and dressings are often made with oil or contain lots of sugar. Drowning your green salad in dressing or smothering your baked potato in sour cream, adds a lot of fat and calories. You can try using substitutes, such as non-fat sour cream, but you should also experiment with more spices to flavor your food.

 

Don’t avoid skipping meals – When you don’t eat regularly, your body can go into what is known as starvation mode. Essentially, what this means is that your body begins to think that you are starving and in an effort to keep you alive it starts burning it rather than hanging on to fat it. This is when you glucagon kicks in and takes the place of insulin, which instructs the fat you generate to go to storage. Avoid what generates fat in your body; carbs. The glucagon is a fat burning hormone that instructs your body fat to get up and go to work. These are all benefits of calorie restriction, which, in studies has shown to extend the life of the practicing individual. This is your key to long life, as shown in Ultimate Cure for the World.

 

A great tip that may help you lose weight is to ditch all of those breakfast cereals that contain way too much sugar and eat oatmeal instead. Oatmeal is one of the best sources of carbohydrates around. The energy you get from eating oatmeal (especially steel cut) will practically fuel your whole day.

When eating with others, people tend to consume more than they realize. They are so involved in a conversation and having a good time, they don’t pay attention to what they are eating. In order to lose weight, it is suggested not to mix eating with having a good time. If you go out with friends for food, remember to pay attention to how much you eat, and be careful not to overdo it.

Remember if you are counting calories, to make sure you count the calories in beverages as well as food. Drinking even two or three sodas or beers each day can add up to a large number of calories over the course of a week. This may be the cause of lack of weight loss in some people.

Trying to follow tons of new rules is what makes dieting so difficult for many people. You do not have to employ each and every bit of advice that you read. The best thing to do is to try a few and then stick with the ones that show you the best results. But you shouldn’t just take my word for it. You should learn from the experts…..
