ALERT: Eliminate these 2 toxins from your diet

ALERT: Eliminate these 2 toxins from your diet

Posted by Mike Furci (09/03/2010 @ 9:46 am)

Fructose

Sources: This garbage is found in everything from soda to cereal. It?s literally in thousands of products. Read your labels.

The ?fat carb? has been in our food supply for more 35 years. We?ve been led to believe that fructose from high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is akin to naturally occurring sugar, the same that?s found in fruit. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fructose from HFCS is not the same as the molecule from sucrose (table sugar), or fruit leveulose. [1] Is it any wonder they have worked so hard to link HFCS to something natural and healthy like fruit?

The problem is our bodies metabolize HFCS differently than sucrose or fruit leveulose. When we consume sucrose, our bodies convert it into glucose, which raises our blood glucose levels. We then get an insulin spike to shuttle the glucose where it?s needed. When we consume HFCS, unlike natural sugar, it is metabolized in the liver and produces high triglyceride levels which are linked to heart disease. In addition, HFCS does not induce insulin secretion, nor does it boost leptin production, both of which are key signals for decreasing hunger. Hence, the name ?fat carb.? Eat it, get fat. Eat more, get fatter.

Russ Bianchi, a pharmacologist and toxicologist, explains: ?There is no safe form of fructose available from any source, unless already existing in an unprocessed apple or other piece of fruit. The science is known and epidemiologically proven.? [2]

If you follow the obesity epidemic in the U.S., you?ll find that Americans are eating less fat. In 1965, men ate an average of 139 grams and women 83 grams of fat per day. In 1995, men ate 101 grams and women ate 65 grams of fat per day. [3] With the way fat has been demonized over the last four decades, you?d expect an increase in fat consumption to be the main cause of the obesity epidemic, yet it?s not.

What does mirror the increase in fat Americans is the consumption pattern of HFCS. Between the years of 1970 and 1990, HFCS consumption increased 1000% and today represents 40% of the sweeteners added to foods and beverages. In fact, HFCS is the sole caloric sweetener in soft drinks in the United States. Is it any wonder that obesity is an epidemic? One of the main ingredients in our food supply not only converts to fat when we consume it, it facilitates fat storage. And Americans as a whole are eating more and more and more.

Trans Fat

Sources: Any foods containing ?shortening,? ?partially hydrogenated vegetable oil? or ?hydrogenated vegetable oil? in the ingredients list.

These manmade fats, like fructose, are in thousands of products. I cannot stress enough the importance of reading food labels. However, do not be fooled by products that claim ?zero trans fat?. Showing the power the edible oil and processed food industries have, the FDA agreed to allow food labels to list trans...

Saturated fat is no villian.

Saturated fat is no villian.

Posted by Mike Furci (03/13/2010 @ 11:03 pm)

Saturated fat found mainly in animal products has been vilified by physicians, the media, and the edible oil industry for over 60 years, despite mounds of evidence to the contrary. A meta-analysis of 21 prospective epidemiologic studies that had a total of 347,747 participants, showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease or stroke.

Saturated fats have been nourishing societies around the world for thousands of years. If animal fats (saturated fats) are so dangerous, and vegetable oils (polyunsaturated fat) are so healthy, why are we so unhealthy as a nation? The scientific data of the past and present does not support the assertion that saturated fats cause heart disease. As a matter of fact, people who have had a heart attack haven?t eaten any more saturated fat than other people, and the degree of atherosclerosis at autopsy is unrelated to diet.Ravnskov, Uffe. ? The cholesterol Myths: Myth number 4 ?

Your Best Life Diet!

Posted by Staff (11/17/2010 @ 3:14 am)

Diet and exercise is a lifestyle choice.

Once you decide to get fit, staying fit becomes your biggest challange.

A few tips from health expert Bob Greene will keep you on track while maintaining your fitness goals.

The best life diet , the creation of physiologist Bob Greene, has an easy-to-follow approach to weight loss and healthy living.

This diet plan calls for lifestyle changes as well as healthy eating habits. This best life diet does not include physical activity and exercise as primary forms of weight loss, instead, promotes nutritious and healthy eating.

Depending on the person’s physical conditions and general fitness, the best life diet suggests a calorie intake of about 1,500 to 2,500 based on the list of recommended foods and their number of servings.

This easy-to-understand weight loss diet is very effective, and Oprah Winfrey is one of its success stories.

There are a wide range of recipes, tips, and tools for the dieters to keep on track and stick to diet regime. The best life diet can be customized further to suit various body types as well as different lifestyles. This may include different food choices and activity levels of the individual.

The main feature of the plan is controlling food choices, portions, and serving sizes and numbers. A lot of liberty regarding food choice is given in the third phase of this diet plan.

The diet also guides an indi...
