2020 is a new year: do you want a New You?
Health tips to get you right back on track.
I am sure you all know by now the 4 main Dont’s
I will summarise the first 3 and go into more detail on Fats
Sugar ….. more addictive and more harmful than cocaine or heroin
Wheat …. Full of Glyphosate and gluten which damage the gut
Dairy Products…. full of trans fats, hormones and other toxins.
Except for Raw Milk products
Vegetable oils (if they are refined. Most oils in a Supermarket are Refined )
Vegetable oils usually contain deadly trans fats, even if non-hydrogenated
non-hydrogenated vegetable oils (all vegetable oils are refined) also contain some trans fats due to the extremely high heat, solvents, and pressure they are exposed to during the refining process. And yes, this includes so-called “expeller pressed” vegetable oils as well.
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.
Expert Nutrition author, Catherine Shanahan, MD, calls the fats in vegetable oils “MegaTrans”, because they are similar in chemistry to trans fats, but even worse
And MegaTrans from vegetable oils are found in almost all processed packaged foods, as well as virtually all restaurant fryers.
Free radicals formed during the refining of vegetable oils create these “mutant” fats, which damage your cell membranes & chromosomes, and create massive inflammation in your body .
French Fries proven to immediately harm your arteries after eating them: Dr Shanahan also surveyed hundreds of patients that were admitted to the hospital for a heart attack, and discovered that every sing le patient that just had a heart attack had consumed foods made with vegetable oils with their last meal before the heart attack.
Vegetable oils cause massive imbalances with your Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats ratio
One of the other MAJOR reasons that vegetable oils are killing you is they are mostly made up of inflammatory omega-6 fats, while having very little anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats.
The healthiest ratio from the scientific literature appears to be a ratio of 2:1 or even 1:1 for your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. However, most vegetable oils skew your ratio as high as 20:1 or even 30:1 in favour of harmful inflammatory omega-6 fats.
As a quick note, the Solution to all of these major problems with vegetable oils is to use healthy oils like coconut oil, olive oil, macadamia oil, avocado oil, and grass-fed butter, all of which are much healthier than vegetable oils and they don’t cause any of the problems I’ve described in this section of the article.
So-Called Super Foods to avoid.
kitchen cabinets and fridge losded with foods that they think are “healthy” (or have been deceived by clever food labels into believing are healthy), but in reality are fat-storing traps in disguise.
It’s not uncommon to see foods such as:
whole grain cereals
whole grain crackers (more of that wheat that’s killing you)
tofu or “veggie burgers” (non-fermented soy can be harmful to your hormones)
orange juice (loaded with too much fructose that raises your triglycerides)
skim milk or homogenized milk
margarine (deadly trans fat or even “MegaTrans”)
pre-packaged “diet” dinners
protein bars (most are candy bars in disguise!)
overly processed meal replacements (with more junk than healthy ingredients)
rice cakes (massive blood sugar spike)
pasta (more wheat to age you faster)
diet ice cream or diet desserts
so-called “energy” drinks
low-fat foods (usually replaces fat with more sugar)
low-carb processed foods
soybean oil, corn oil, canola oil
So how do you repair your damaged digestive system and start melting away your embarrassing belly fat , while also increasing your energy, & fighting joint pain?
The simplest way is to get rid of the foods you now know are damaging your system.
Second, add “fermentable fibers” to your diet, which are also called prebiotics (sweet potato, yam, yucca, etc.) and eat a lot of fermented foods like kefir, sauerkraut, and certain types of yogurt (but most yogurts found in your grocery store are simply milk with sugar and are NOT healthy) You can also supplement with probiotics, but make sure to start slow and build up.
Third, better manage your stress through better sleep patterns, exercise, and breathing techniques. Stress is known to damage your gut , so the better you handle it, the healthier your gut will be.
Fourth, start adding Turmeric to your diet, either with supplements or sprinkling the spice on your food. Turmeric aids your liver in flushing out the toxic substances that have been building there due to your damaged gut. It also fights dangerous inflammation
But, most importantly, you should get rid of those “health foods” causing you all those problems, and start consuming the actual foods that help you burn stubborn belly fat , fix your hormones, fight against Diabetes, and help you look and feel years younger…
