Why is What You Eat So Important?

So often I hear from various people that they don’t want to change their diet, they are too old to change what they eat and besides disease is really hereditary anyway

Is it?  I very often tell someone when they complain about the cost of healthy organic food, that they can spend more now or they can pay the doctor later. Besides the pain, loss of income, and anxiety of that might be wrong when they get ill, they miss out on all the energy they could have right now.

As an example of what a poor diet can do, may I present an article Diet of The Plague? What Went Wrong?

How does this work?

You have to understand that there are forty nutrients that cannot be made in the body. They are essential fatty acids, 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, and 10 amino acids. Collectively these forty nutrients are spoken of as the body’s requirements. From these our bodies synthesize an estimated 10,000 different compounds essential to the maintenance of health. All the forty nutrients work together. Therefore, the lack of any one might result in the underproduction of hundreds of these essential compounds. Probably no one nutrient is ever totally lacking from an otherwise adequate diet, but partial simultaneous deficiencies of many nutrients is common.

Your body needs these things every day to function. You have to start paying attention to what you eat, and make sure you take those vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids that are missing in your diet.

Rather than have to deal with sickness and heroic measures to save your life (surgery, drugs, etc.).  Isn’t it a better idea to build health?

Understanding what your body needs and providing it is your best Health Insurance.

 

We need to shift our focus from treating disease to generating health…” Hippocrates (“The Father of Medicine” 460 BC – 380 BC)

Insulin Does More than Lowering Blood Sugar

Insulin is necessary, but too much Insulin due to high amounts of sugar and carbs leads to Insulin Resistance and eventually to diabetes if not addressed properly.  There is good evidence that high amounts of insulin in the blood leads to coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, and many other problems.

Cutting down on insulin by eating fats, protein and veggies will not only cut so much insulin in the blood stream but will also get insulin resistant cells to be insulin sensitive – a good thing.

There is a lot written about this.   Most often the Ketogenic Diet is considered a way to lose weight – but so much more.  The theory you don’t get healthy by losing weight, you get Healthy to Lose Weight.

But even if you aren’t overweight, building health is a good thing.

Do you use Artificial Sweeteners? Are they Healthy Replacemenets for Sugar?

A lot of people use artificial sweeteners because they have heard that sugar is bad for them but love things sweet.   Are they doing the right thing?

Artificial sweeteners have their own problems.   Here is a list of them with links to articles on their relationship to your health

Sugar Substitutes

Is there anything you can take to sweeten up you coffee or use in your baking.   It appears that Stevia is the best option.  Stevia is a herb that used in very small amounts make a great sweetener.  It comes in packets, or drops and works well.

Here is the definition:

Stevia: Made from the leaves of a Paraguayan herb, and usually found in powder form, it is 300 times sweeter than sugar. A little goes a very long way (obviously). It’s non-caloric, which is generally considered a plus.

A Healthy Diet – Do You Know What That Is?

I’m amazed whenever I hear the words either in print or on radio or TV – “eat a healthy diet.”   The problem is that it is never defined.   Does a healthy diet mean you eat low fat?- some people believe that is true.   Or is it that you eat lots of fruit and vegetables?   What about protein – is meat okay?

I’ve  heard lots of bits and pieces, but mostly its just “a healthy diet”.  I’ve even heard that a healthy diet means you exercise … what?    Am I supposed to somehow innately know what that means?   Did I miss that in class one day?   Surely there must be a definition somewhere.

There used to be a food pyramid, that got replaced by a plate showing what should be on that plate each day.  Both seems rather silly and neither said anything about whether the food should be processed or GMO free.   I always wondered who made these up – someone in the government, but not who or why they thought this was the ideal diet.   I thought maybe they all voted on it.   It somehow was made up by “nutritional educators”.  Whoever that might be.

Try as I may, no one really gives you a definitive answer.   It’s funny too because I’ve never heard someone actually ask for a list of what to eat.  I never heard one of the health gurus come up what a list, or a guideline – just “eat a healthy diet”.

My search got some results.  I found a nutritionist who actually printed off a list of foods to eat.  Really.

You can read it here.   Good Food.

I’d be interested in seeing what you think.

Grains – Are they good for you?

by Chris Daino

A lot of us know we can’t eat wheat. There are those who have “celiac’s disease” and then there are those who know that wheat and other grains just don’t agree with their digestive system.

There are many drugs available for the symptoms that are created by the problems many people have with digestion. And one has to ask the question, are these drugs necessary? Or is it something that I ate?

Here is an article on Grains
