Incase you didn't already know.....Fat does not make you fat, Sugar makes you fat!
More than one-third (34.9% or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese ("Adult Obesity Facts | Overweight & Obesity | CDC", 2016).
Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death ("Adult Obesity Facts | Overweight & Obesity | CDC", 2016) Richard H. McKensie’s book HEAVY 2012.
Today we will discuss the common reasons for America’s obesity epidemic and ways you can change your health and the health of your family.
Insulin Resistance is one of the biggest health problems of the developed world
Carbohydrates are addicting
· Linked to various “chronic disease”
· Causes Leptin resistance – satiating hormone
Drink MOSTLY water
Healthy fats are vital to human health
Insulin Resistance and Leptin Resistance! Endothelial cells take up the sugar from postprandial spikes and encourages the WBC’s to attack (inflammation) and cholesterol to aggregate on the WBC’s If you have a burger and fries bun and all you had 5x’s as much as the glucose tolerance test. Over 200 grams of sugar (Carbohydrates)
A.The biggest problem in the developed world today with the main culprit being fructose- void of vitamin c and fiber= gouty arthritis-why are we so resistant? The Fat Switch by Richard J Johnson-Learn what causes obesity and simple methods to fight it
B.Insulin Resistance is linked to Alzheimer’s, Cancer, Heart Disease, Stroke, -read Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter
C.Consequences of insulin resistance arthritis, pain (insulin up regulates the conversion of linoleic acid bottom line= accelerates the pro-inflammatory cascade which increases pain, cancer, heart disease, hypertension, artery disease, autism
D.Leptin resistance (Satiating hormone) the brain no longer knows when you are full and we go for combinations of salt sugar and fat-what about honey, agave? These are void of vitamin c and fiber so they increase insulin resistance. Refined carbs potatoes, rice, starches, breads, grains, this goes against the ADA food pyramid- watch FED UP documentary on the making of the food pyramid-scientists/doctors protested-predicted the rise of diabetes and obesity that we are living today
Solutions Specific To the Cause:
1.Stop Sugar, Refined Carbs, Wheat, etc.
2.Balance Omega-6 / Omega-3 when we get to much omega 6 it promotes inflammation –soy/canola oils, trans fats adds gas to the fire- 80 years ago from 2 guys who made candles out of cottonseed oil after electricity was invented, wondered what they would do with all this cottonseed. Crisco was invented (proctor and gamble) I bet we could get people to cook with this. No studies no safety done before marketing
4.Chromium: minimum of 200 mcg/day
5.No Trans Fatty Acids
7.Alternative Sources of ATP (ENERGY)
a.80% fat, 10% protein, 10% carb
i.Medium Chain Saturated Triglycerides
ii.Coconut Oil (57-60%) 1 TBS/meal
Drink Mostly water
AVERAGE OVERWEIGHT AMERICAN CONSUMES 760 CALORIES PER DAY BY DRINKING SUGARY JUNK-LINKED TO INSULIN RESISTANCE
Diet sodas are part of the problem they are not a solution
Common symptoms of Aspartame
Vision and/or hearing problems
("Aspartame: The Most Dangerous Substance on the Market", 2016)
Filtered water –non-fluoridated (endocrine disrupter)
Alzheimer’s Disease What if there was a cure? The Story of Ketones by Mary T Newport MD, The End of Alzheimers Dr. Dale Bredesen
Alzheimer’s Prevention Protocol
Balance omega-6/omega-3 ratio (1.5 – 4 /1)
Take antioxidant vitamin/mineral supplements (watch the iron and copper)
Healthy Fats are necessary for human function!
A review of all the research on saturated fat published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found there was no correlation between saturated fat and heart disease. And a recent editorial in the British Journal of Medicine hammers home the same point and shatters the myth that fat causes obesity and heart disease. Researchers have found that, while it’s true that lowering saturated fat in the diet may lower total cholesterol, it’s actually lowering the good kind of cholesterol, the light, fluffy, buoyant LDL that’s not a problem (Estruch et al., 2013).
When people eat less fat, they tend to eat more starch or sugar instead, and this actually increases their levels of dangerous cholesterol, the small, dense cholesterol that causes heart attacks. In fact, studies show that 75% of people who end up in the emergency room with a heart attack have normal overall cholesterol levels. What they do have is pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.
So, what’s the conclusion here? Eating a diet with good quality fat and protein prevents and even reverses diabetes and pre-diabetes (diabesity). And eating sugar and refined carbs cause diabesity.
So, I encourage you to look at the issue of fat and sugar in a totally different way. Don’t cut out the fat; enjoy it! Eat good fats. Here are my favorite sources of fat:
Nuts—walnuts, almonds, pecans, macadamia nuts, but not peanuts (one recent study showed a handful of nuts a day reduced death from all causes by 20 percent)
Seeds—pumpkin, sesame, chia, hemp
Fatty fish, including sardines, mackerel, herring, and wild salmon that are rich in omega-3 fats
Extra virgin olive oil (a Large study in the New England Journal Of Medicine showed that those who consumed 1 liter a week reduced heart attacks by 30 percent)
Enjoy grass-fed or sustainably raised animal products (I recommend the Environmental Working Group’s Meat Eater’s guide.
You CAN eat saturated fat like extra virgin coconut butter, which is a great plant-based source of saturated fat that has many benefits. It fuels your mitochondria, is anti-inflammatory, and it doesn’t cause problems with your cholesterol. In fact, it may help resolve them (Articles et al., 2013). Yellow oils in a clear bottle are BAD!! Crisco is hydrogenated fats~ BAD! THROW AWAY! Trans and hydrogenated are the same thing! Heart attacks 1910-right after soda candy etc. Brominated vegetable oils banned in over 100 countries including China! Horrible stuff! 1991 urged bakers to stop using it-pushes iodine out of the body! Worst thing about bread! Ezekial bread-should be iodine in the bread
Insulin Resistance is the biggest problem of the developed world -Linked to various “chronic disease”
Carbohydrates are addicting –LIGHT UP THE SAME RECEPTORS AS COCAINE, ALCOHOL AND SMOKING-DOPAMINE RECEPTORS
Drink only water-FILTERED –non fluoridated
Alzheimer’s the “Diabetes type 3”
Healthy fats are necessary for human function –esp. brain
