Carbs! How To Cut Back

The best way to start cutting back your carb intake is to stop buying the foods that you find them in. Without any high carbohydrate food around, you’re forced to find alternative foods to eat and snack on. The best benefit of discontinuing the consumption of carbohydrates is the lack of a need to keep eating them. Once your body discovers that it can live without carbs, miraculous things begin to manifest. The longer you stay off the carbs, the more miraculous these manifestations become, until you begin to experience health as it is supposed to be experienced, illness and disease free.

But to just stop buying carbs, isn’t stopping the consumption, ’cause if you’re like me, you have to use up what you have in your pantry. You can’t just throw it all out, you have to use it up, so as not to waste it. There are two theories on this;

If you can afford to throw out what breads you have in your pantry, you’d be far better off, than if you didn’t. Consumption of what you have left means that you’ll only be adding to the inflammation, it causes. Continuation of this consumption will also bring on any multitude of illnesses or disease that you would NEVER experience if you didn’t ingest this food, to begin with.

If you can’t afford to throw it out and have to eat it, because of financial hardships, you have two courses to consider, either damage your health by continuing to eat it, or save your health and give your carbs to the dog. If you must keep damaging your health, by eating it, slow down your consumption of it, to slow the intake of the sugars that are so deadly. This way, they won’t affect your blood sugars as much, and this is what is so dangerous about eating carbs. It’s the roller coaster ride that these carbs put our blood glucose through. You eat carbs, your blood sugars rise. After a couple hours, your blood sugars fall again, making you hungry again and ready to pack in more carbs, simply to raise that blood glucose. Hence, the carbohydrate roller coaster ride. We all ride this ride, for there is no waiting line for it. It’s ready for us to take any time we want to. It’s no wonder that this is causing our obesity epidemic that the whole world is experiencing today. (This is the manifestation of the genetic modifying of wheat and other grains.)

Unfortunately, this doesn’t tell us what we should be replacing those lost calories with, so I’ll make a couple of suggestions as to what you can do, to fill your stomach;

  • Eat high fiber carbs like fruits and vegetables. I list fruits here, because of the problem of satisfying our sweet tooth. In order to cut back on all the sugars that we ingest, it’s easier to do, if we keep the simplest of these carbs (fructose) in our diet, for a while, at least until we wean ourselves off of the killer sugar, glucose. Fructose can be just as deadly, but because of its nature of being a 1 molecule sugar, it’s digested by the liver and not on a cellular level. This means that it doesn’t need insulin to be digested, and therefore doesn’t affect the pancreas as much as a diet high in glucose will.
  • Transition from carbs to more protein and fats in your diet. To cut the carbs, you need to replace those lost calories with healthier calories, like fat and protein. This will do several things to your body that are very beneficial, like reducing your weight, first and foremost, which will help keep you from contracting diabetes. You’ll experience a decrease in any chronic pain, arthritic pain or headaches you have to deal with, as well as experience a reduced threat of cancer and cardiovascular disease, just to name a few. Your benefits may be greater or less depending on the level of addiction that you have to deal with now.
  • When you feel like a snack, which will reduce over time as your body adjusts to a low carb diet, turn to raw nuts. Raw nuts are packed full of protein, essential fats (which offer more calories per gram of food than what carbs do), and best of all, fiber to help clean out your digestive system. You’ll soon experience less hunger, as you continue on your low carb diet because your body won’t be experiencing the carb roller coaster ride, that makes us all want to eat more.
  • Eggs may be one of the best sources of nutrition. They’re packed with protein, good fats and essential oils, B-complex vitamins and essential minerals. More nutrition comes in just one of these little packages than what you can get out of 6 loaves of bread.

Whatever you think, don’t allow the phrase low carb or Keto diet scare you. Not all low carb diets are keto diets. Ketogenic diets are not for unhealthy people as much as they are for healthy people. Everyone who has an intolerance (allergic reaction) to wheat, gluten, gliadin or any of the other substances found in this grain, will experience the unhealthy consequences of a carbohydrate diet.

Carbs have 4 calories per gram, fat has 9 calories per gram.

Which of these foods is more efficient, is what you should be asking yourself. 

The converse of a carb diet is, you guessed it, a keto diet, or ketogenic diet. With fat being more than twice as efficient as carbs, it’s a wonder that we still eat carbs. I’ve been on an MCT ketogenic diet for the last two years and I can’t say enough about what it’s done for my health. My weight came down 60 lbs from a high of 220 lbs 8 years ago, when I started working out. I lost the first 30 pounds in the first month just from water loss. The nice thing about water loss is, that it includes a good supply of body fat, that comes with it, as fat is water soluble in the body and when your body expels the water, fat comes with it. My problem was that I couldn’t drop my weight any further, until I changed my diet, two years ago, when I gave up the wheat products and all other grain foods. When I did that, my excess weight just magically disappeared. Within 4 months, I was 15 pounds lower than my prescribed weight, feeling great with far more energy than I’ve ever had. This is the biggest benefit to a Keto diet, more energy. I’ve got more energy than I’ve ever had. I’ve got so much energy, I just wish I knew about this before.

Other benefits of a Keto diet can be found in a myriad of sites around the web extolling ketogenic diets. Your diet doesn’t have to be ketogenic though, the important thing is to cut your carb intake. I’ve given you a few links in this post for your research. I hope you do research everything in this post and inform me of what isn’t correct. The only way you’ll know for yourself how dangerous this food is, is by vetting what you read, not only here, but in every other article, you read about this subject.

The more I investigate, the more I find that disturbs me, like, why does the food industrial complex still advertise this food as being healthy? Why do they advertise it as being high fiber? Why is it still advertised, that whole grains are healthy when they’re not? This brings us to our next problem, why didn’t we know about this before? Again, this is something that will have to wait for another post, as this one is already too long, so stay tuned…

I know how it’s hard it is to quit eating this food, ’cause I did it. You can track my journey here. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. But with some perseverance, I did it, I noticed the change after about 1 month of abstinence. It was like a weight lifted off my shoulders all of a sudden. The room seemed brighter. All my senses felt crisper and more alive. Everything came easier, standing up, walking, sitting down, even getting out of bed was easier every morning. Everything I was experiencing and beginning to experience proved to me, the value of keeping this food out of my diet. It proved it in such a way, that I’m now doing my level best to convince the rest of my family and the world, just how dangerous this grain is. My continued use of this diet has not only made my general health better, most importantly, it’s improved my brain functions to a level I never thought imaginable. By converting my brain over to ketones instead of carbohydrates, it’s allowed me to actually grow my brain, and more importantly my brain functions. My thinking has actually improved quite substantially…even with my disability still affecting me. Crosswords come easier. Names are easier to remember, and even though I still have massive amounts of memory loss, do to my head injury. (The real reason I started and continue this lifestyle.) Even with the severity of my disability, having to live with the loss of short-term memory, that not only blocks memories, it blocks reasoning and judgement due to the damage was done to my pre-frontal cortex, from the strokes that I had, 31 years ago, I’ve been able to overcome a major portion of what I lost. (I still get to live with the knowledge, that I’ll never get back the mental power, that I had before.)

By using fat as a source of energy, I don’t have to spend nearly as calories digesting my food, because fat is so much more of an efficient fuel. By needing less food, to create the calories I need to fuel my body, I can allow my stomach to go empty for a much longer time now. I don’t have to feed it every 2 hours. I often go as many as 12 or 16 hours without eating anything. 24-hour fasts are nothing for me to complete, now, quite comfortably even.

Converting to a state of ketosis has allowed my body to actually go hungry for extended periods of time, without loss of energy or mental faculties, (alertness, clearness of mind, etc) or experiencing emotional roller coaster rides because of the fluctuations in my blood sugar. I don’t worry about any of that because I don’t have the blood glucose flowing through my system, that creates that E-ticket ride. I do this because I can’t afford to get sick. I can’t afford the medications. I can’t afford the hospitalizations. I can’t afford the testing, the procedures, the surgeries, the doctor visits, the specialist’s visits, and worse yet, I can’t afford to be any more disabled than I am right now. For my story, you have to read this account of my disability, ‘How hard it for me to appear normal‘, that I keep in my medical records. It’s already part of my medical records at Cigna, Red Mountain Facility in Mesa, AZ. My doctors know what I have to live with, and even they, are convinced that this “high fat” diet that I started on, close to 2 years ago, is the healthiest diet that I could be on.

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?

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.

Working Out Without Weight Loss

Working Out Without Weight Loss

I’m sure you’ve seen it before…work out after work out but no weight loss

The person who runs on the treadmill constantly, gets trained by a personal trainer or is always on the stationary bike but never loses any weight.

But is it really possible that somebody could spend hours working out but never lose weight? Of course, it is. But why?

Simple: The “law of energy balance.”

Exercising : Group of three people - presumably friends - spinning in the gym, , exercising for their legs and cardio training weight loss
Besides fat burning supplements, endless sessions of cardio or anything else for that matter, losing weight boils down to a simple principle…

Anytime you want to lose weight, you must create a calorie deficit each and every day to do so.

In other words, you must consume fewer calories than what your body needs to maintain its current body weight. It doesn’t matter how intense your gym sessions are and how intensely you workout if you’re not creating a constant calorie deficit then you won’t lose any weight at all.

Fat is simply stored energy. When you create a calorie deficit, you’re forcing your body to burn fat as a source of fuel. Plain and simple.

This is primarily why you see people working out in the gym constantly looking the same week after week, month after month.

Even if you’re burning a sufficient amount of calories through your workouts, if you’re eating too much then you’re simply going to be replacing those burnt calories again. And since working out naturally increases your appetite, many people tend to overeat without even realizing it.

Just keep in mind that it’s much easier to consume 500 additional calories than it is to burn 500 calories off.

It could easily take an hour or so of moderately intense cardio to burn 500 calories, but it could also take 5 minutes to get those calories back in your system.

Even if you’re eating a nutritious diet, it won’t make a difference in the world if you’re consuming too many calories – your metabolism is not a magic genie that can adjust itself at the blink of an eye.

This essentially implies that a person who eats nothing but ice cream, chips, soda, and cookies would lose more weight than the person who is eating carrot and celery sticks all day if this person were in a calorie deficit and the healthy eater was in a calorie surplus.

Working Out Without Weight Loss?: The Solution

The solution:

Track your diet every single day.

Even if you’re not right on target all the time, you still need to get a basic idea of how many calories you’re consuming each day.

If you can’t get this simple principle down, it’s quite possible that you could go weeks, months or even years without any success at all.

The process is actually pretty simple…

1) Determine your maintenance amount of calories – Or the number of calories to consume each day to maintain your current weight and body fat percentage.

2) Decrease this number by 15-20% – This will allow you to burn additional fat calories without sacrificing muscle mass.

Probably the best way to do this would be through the use of the “Harris Benedict Formula”. It’s a simple calculation and I use it myself.

It’s not nearly as important to get this exactly right as it is to get a basic guideline for yourself……I can guarantee that a person who does this will see much better results than a person who doesn’t watch their calorie intake at all. 

3) Research the benefits of Calorie Restriction and a Ketogenic Diet; calorie restriction has shown to extend your life more than 20 years your normal lifespan. Learn the value of hormone adjustment therapy with your diet.

Tainted Food: 

 The reason why it’s harder to satisfy your appetite is due to the tainting of your food, without your knowledge. These books explain of a grandiose ruse set to take your money to improve the profit margins of several corporations across several industries from the seed crop industry to the chemical industry to the pharmaceutical industry. And, that’s just for starters. This story tells of the control of the farming industry to intentionally taint your food to make you buy pharmaceuticals. It’s a story of why you can get healthy and why you can’t lose weight.
