If you tell me what you Eat… I’ll tell you why you’re Sick!
“You are what you eat.” is an old proverb, and it happens to be true. If you want to find out what ails you, or why you’re always sick and tired, just look at what you’re giving your body to live on. If you tell me what you Eat… I’ll tell you why you’re Sick.
Do you eat; Sugar, drink soda, eat corn, or products made from corn or soy, fast food, junk food, chew gum, wheat, MSG, GMOs? None of these qualify as “Food” because they contain No Nutrition. All individually are capable of making you sick. Combine them and you have a “Perfect Storm” for sickness and life-threatening illness, and Death.
Do you suffer from: anxiety, obesity, headaches, arthritis, confusion, bloating, chronic cough, diarrhea, dizziness, heart palpitations, hypertension, insomnia, joint pain, muscle spasms, fatigue, constipation, feeling jumpy, irritable? Am I making you depressed?
I’ve got a Hot Flash for you… It’s not me causing this!
Would You pour; sugar, salt, bacon grease or wheat flour into the gas tank of your car? NO! Because you know your car can’t run on it. Guess what, neither can your body, but you have no problem shoving it in your face every day, every meal, and then wondering, “Why do I feel like crap?”
Your Doctor’s first question should be, “What are you eating?” not “Where does it hurt?” No, I’m not Dr. Phil, but if I know what your regular diet is I can have a pretty good idea of what your problems might be. “Where does it hurt?” is already too late. If you learn what real food is and actually eat it, you can stop or prevent the hurt. Sound good?
If you tell me that you eat a “Good Healthy Standard American Diet” I know that you’re probably overweight and sick and tired most of the time. The Standard American Diet is SAD. It’s full of Salt, Sugar, Fat, and Empty Calories with little or No Nutritional Value.
“Yeah, but I take a Multivitamin!”
I’m sorry to tell you that although taking vitamins may be a good idea as a supplement it’s not going to replace or overcome poor nutrition. You need to get that nutrition in “Real Food” not a pill.
What exactly are these Quasi-Foods are making you sick and silently KILLING you and your family, causing Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer & excess body fat…
Why Sugar is KILLING you?
Most people falsely think that if they eat sugar, they can just exercise a little bit harder and “burn it off”… but you can’t. One can of soda means that you would have to run 4 1/2 miles to burn it off. Caveman would eat 22 tsp of sugar per year, we eat that per day, 130 lbs a year of just Sugar.
What sugar does to the cells of your body, and messes you up internally and causes disease.
- Sugar causes fluctuations in your blood sugar, and excess blood sugar causes Glycation, which accelerates the rate of aging of your organs, skin, arteries, and joints.
- Sugar also raises your triglycerides levels, which can lead you to heart disease.
- Eating sugar frequently can causes type 2 diabetes, because you wear out your pancreas and insulin sensitivity.
- Sugar also slows down your white blood cells, making infection more likely. This makes you more susceptible to colds and flu and other illness and even allowing CANCER cells a better chance to form in your body.
Sugar makes you fat, and gives you excess calories without any beneficial nutrients whatsoever.
If Sugar is bad, then High Fructose Corn Syrup and Aspartame are even worse. Even Agave syrup (aka, agave nectar) which is marketed as a “healthy” sweetener, is one of the most concentrated forms of processed fructose of all sweeteners.
What are you supposed to do?
The best thing you can do is wean yourself off of added sweeteners of all kinds. In the process you can stay with Natural Raw Honey and Stevia, if you must. The advantage of completely stopping the use of all sweeteners is that you will have an increased sense of taste, so that fruits will taste sweeter to you.
If you can’t drink coffee or tea without sugar, then maybe you really don’t like coffee or tea and it’s just a vehicle for the Sugar. Maybe you’re just not grown up enough for coffee or tea… yet.
If you drink Soda like it was water, there is no good soda, with or without sugar. You need to start drinking water like it was water.
Why did I start with Sugar?
Because it’s the most addictive. I’ve read it may be even more addictive than Heroin. I certainly have never met anyone that didn’t like the taste of Sugar, it’s an immediate pleasure. But, with that said it can be a sweet life without it. It’s one of those things that you’re better off without… much better.
What do you gain by stopping using Sugar?
Expect to get fewer colds and flu. Expect to lose weight, have better skin, less joint pain. Plus it reduces the chances of High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer. That’s a pretty good trade off I think. What do you think?
The benefits of stopping High Fructose Corn Syrup and Aspartame are even greater. Sugar is bad, these two are just poison. You don’t need any of them.
I know you need the boost that the sugar gives you to help you get through the day or the afternoon. The spike you get is quickly followed by the crash that follows. Leaving you needing more, and more, and more.
You need to break the cycle. Eat an apple… take a walk around the block, to give yourself some energy. That’s what I do. It works… try it.
There’s absolutely nothing “essential” about wheat in the human diet…It simply does more harm than good…period. EVEN WHOLE WHEAT!
Each piece of bread you eat is equivalent to eating about 20 grams of sugar since the response to your blood sugar and triglyceride levels is essentially the same, if not worse than sugar in some cases.
Eating Wheat will make you feel fatigued, malnourished, constipated, jumpy, irritable, depressed, and vulnerable to chronic illness. It also fuels high blood sugar levels. High blood sugar leads to insulin release, fat storage, and increased hunger and cravings.
When you look at the added sugar and salt to most breads that you buy, you’re just adding to the negative effects. When you consider that all grains are just filler, you might just as well eat sawdust, (which by the way may very well be in your store bought bread).
“But what about the FIBER in wheat? I thought that’s why it’s supposed to be healthy?”
You can get ALL of the fiber you need from beans, fruits, veggies, and seeds, without the damage and massive blood sugar issues that are caused by wheat.
Wheat contains compounds called “exorphins” that affect your brain like a drug. That’s why people have such a hard time giving up their beloved breads, bagels, cereals, pasta, and muffins because they are addictive.
I know that I can personally eat a whole pizza, or a loaf of bread and a pound of pasta. I just can’t stop once I’ve started. Even after I’m stuffed, I can still manage to find room for even more carbs in the form of sweets. This doesn’t happen if there’s a pound of beans instead of pasta, followed by fruit and nuts, why is that?
I’m of Italian descent, there’s no way I can go on forever without Pizza and Pasta, that’s not going to happen. What do I do? When I know I have a meal like this coming up? First, I try to limit it to a One Meal Deal, rather than a Weekend Feeding Frenzy.
As a preventative measure, I will eat more Fruit for Breakfast than normal. I will make sure my Big Salad has all of my favorite fixins in it, including nuts and avocados for the good fat they bring, and to help fill me up.
Next Vegetable Oil
Sounds healthy, what could be wrong with “Vegetable Oil”? Ahhh, it’s not made from vegetables. It’s made from a combination of corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, safflower oil, and/or cottonseed oil, ALL of which are absolutely terrible for your health.
Corn and Soy are the two largest GMO crops.
What the heck is a Canola?
There is no such thing as a canola in nature. Canola oil is actually a modified version of rapeseed oil. Asian and Indian cultures used rapeseed oil for centuries, but it was never consumed in the large quantities that Americans do.
The rape plant (in the mustard family) contains cyanide-containing compounds and wild animals and even insects avoid it in nature. To become canola oil involves exposing rapeseed oil to high heat, which greatly reduces the omega 3 content (perhaps it’s only original redeeming factor).
GMOs aside, Vegetable Oils are Deadly. Vegetable oils usually contain deadly trans fats. Trans fats kill you and DAMAGE your cell membranes in your body leading to all sorts of health problems like cancer, obesity, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and more.
Vegetable oils contain oxidized “mutated fats” that are worse than trans fat & CAUSE heart attacks. All vegetable oils contain oxidized fats due to the refining process and chemical reactions with the polyunsaturated fat content of vegetable oils. High heat and high pressure processing transforme the trans fats and something even worse “MegaTrans”.
MegaTrans from vegetable oils are found in almost ALL processed packaged foods, as well as virtually ALL restaurant fryers. French Fries are proven to immediately harm your arteries after eating them.
What About Olive Oil?
Or Organic Coconut Oil
Food is the Medicine. Community is the Cure. The Quality of the Food determines your Health.
I prefer to make my own meals so I know exactly what is in there and how it was prepared. Besides, I’m the best cook I know. I know exactly how I like it.
If you’re eating Processed ‘Food’ or Eating out most of your meals, and those meals contain Sugar, Aspartame, Corn, Wheat, Soy, MSG, GMOs (or any products made from them or have them added to them) if you’re sick right now that’s what I would expect is making you sick.
If you’re not sick now, expect to be made sick from them… soon. It’s inevitable, like night follows day. Do you want to get well without going to the doctor or medicines, stop.
You can’t keep ingesting them and stay well. It is an impossibility.
