7 foods to avoid in the supermarket.
In 2000, Americans spent 1 in every 14 dollars on medical services.
Now it is 1 in every 6 dollars!
The stats are grim: 1 in 3 people die of cancer, 1 in 2 suffers from cardiovascular disease, 1 in 3 has allergies and 1 in 5 has a mental illness.
ADHD, dyslexia, autism, and childhood diabetes used to be extremely rare two generations ago.
Now nearly every family is affected by one of the above.
And this is despite billions of dollars spent on research and propaganda.
So let’s have a look at where it all starts, at the supermarket.
1. Low Fat Milk is a real health slayer.
Don’t be deceived by a tick on the box from the heart foundations.
Where do you think the heart foundation gets the bulk of its money from?
From the food and diet industries, who get their money from you when you get sick.
Low-fat milk products supposedly lower your cholesterol levels, the reason being that skim milk contains plant sterols.
The truth is that studies have shown that plant sterols are linked to significant risk in heart disease.
Not only that, but plant sterols also block the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, C, D, E and K….
Are your eyes as good as they should be?
Perhaps they aren’t because these are the vitamins that give you good eyesight.
Here is another lie on the box: skim milk provides 44% of your RDI of calcium intake.
The only pity is that the calcium isn’t available to your body.
Unless the milk is raw, calcium from the homogenized milk acidifies the body, so in an effort to alkalize the milk, the body uses calcium from your bones.
The more you drink the more brittle your bones become.
Homogenized milk consumption is the number 1 cause of anaemia in children, because the milk molecules push through the walls of the intestines, leaving holes that cause leaky gut.
It is also mucous forming; creating snotty noses, chesty coughs and blocked up ears.
While this might be music to the ear, nose, and throat specialist, it takes the fun out of parenthood!
But this isn’t all: Skim Milk is skimming you of vital energy, of the cream of your life, of your hard-earned dollars which are now lining the coffers of the big food industries.
2. Soft Drinks and Fruit Juices, like fresh orange or apple juice
Think of these as ‘death in a bottle’.
People guzzle these down thinking they need it for their vitamin C, to keep their bowels going, or to give them energy, not realizing they are getting sicker with every mouthful.
These innocent-looking juices are not only one of the leading causes of obesity and diabetes, but they also hugely impact the brains and nervous systems of children and teenagers.
The difference between fruit (juice) and sugar (which is still an addictive poison) is that fruits are full of fructose.
We can gorge ourselves on fruit and still never feel satisfied because it doesn’t signal to the brain that it has had enough.
Every gram of the fructose we eat is directly converted into fat.
Because of its sweetness, fructose is hidden in almost everything!
The big food companies love it and until recently the Diabetes foundation gave it a tick of approval as well!
Sugar is a combination of sucrose and fructose.
While sucrose might get stored into glycogen by the liver as energy storage, fructose is converted into harmful fats quicker than you can read this chapter.
3. Sugar in all forms.
Sugar includes honey, sucrose, high fructose corn syrup, and agave syrup.
All sugars are addictive and leach precious minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron and chromium from the body.
A sugar hit gives you a temporary ‘up’, but then the bottom drops out as the blood sugar levels plummet.
When this happens day after day, year after year, your adrenals become exhausted.
What happens next is chronic fatigue, allergies and depression, fatty liver, insulin resistance, and all that follows.
The brain cells are very susceptible to damage by the seesaw effect of the blood sugar levels.
The average American consumes about 50kg of sugar per year as opposed to 1kg annually 200 years ago.
Much of that sugar is the deadliest of all: fructose or fruit sugar and much of that is swigged down from the very bottles in the juice aisle.
4. Serial killer, also known as breakfast cereals.
A hundred years ago many people started their day with bacon, potatoes, eggs, pork chops, and cheese.
What happened a few years later?
They ate cereal.
How did that happen?
When women started to enter the workforce, the cooked breakfasts went out the door and for companies like Kellogg’s, this was like a dream come true…
In came the cereals and sugar-laden breakfasts for ‘people on the go’.
Even now, nobody wants to give up on their beloved breakfast cereals easily like this client:
I have a particularly good diet.
I have my weetbix/nutrigrain/cornflakes etc with skim milk.
Then I have a banana for morning tea, sandwiches (with margarine) for lunch, a banana for afternoon tea, and meat with veggies for dinner.
Of course, I trim the fat off the meat.
What would you feel if I told you that your breakfast is killing you?
I suggest you cut out the cereal and have bacon and eggs instead.
What do you think of that?
Good, I love bacon and eggs and always have it when I am on holidays.
How do you feel while you are on holidays?
Great, I have so much energy!
You have so much energy because you have a decent breakfast.
How about having breakfast like that every day?
The cardboard cereal box is more nutritious for you than the weetbix.
No wonder you need a banana at 11 o’clock!
But won’t it make me fat?
No, it’s the cereal and lunch sandwiches that are converted into body fat and leave you feeling drained until dinner time when you proceed to cut off the meat fats that your body craves.
Eat your meat fats and cut out your bananas, that is my suggestion.
Well, that is the opposite to what I have always been taught.
It’s easy; take out the fruits, cereals, and sandwiches and replace them with wholesome unprocessed fats and quality proteins, like eggs, cheese, meat and nuts.
Fats and proteins have corresponding appetite hormones that send messages to the brain to say: NO MORE! I am full.
Fats can actually help you to lose weight without feeling hungry!
I am talking about healthy fats, not processed fats.
5. Hydrogenated Oils/Trans fats
Polyunsaturated fats and oils like canola, soy, corn oil and margarine.
The science behind these oils is thoroughly wrong and the problem is that dietitians, the media, and the heart foundation are slow to admit that these oils are one of the main causes of heart disease, stroke, hormonal upsets, and cancer.
The governments funded the farmers until there was a huge glut in the market.
Animals aren’t stupid enough to eat these oils, so it had to be marketed as a health food, and there you have it, 70 years later we are still guzzling the stuff down thinking that it makes us younger, trimmer, and slimmer.
It’s a dangerous lie by the low-fat industry, and fried foods and bakery goods are full of these fats.
These fats have been shown to raise cholesterol.
Did you realize that Canola oil, a popular ingredient in processed foods and commonly used in eateries and restaurants, is also sold as a pesticide?
The only difference is that the pesticide is a few dollars more expensive than its twin 2 liter bottle in the cooking section of the supermarket.
The active ingredient in the pesticide from the garden section contains 96% canola oil.
The packet says that you must wash it off your skin immediately or ring the poison centre if you happen to ingest some.
Yet ordinary Canola oil which you can buy in bulk for cooking purposes is just as deadly, being 100% Canola oil!
Canola Oil used to be called Rape Seed oil, which didn’t give it a great sales pitch.
The name was changed to Canola, meaning ‘from Canada’.
It was marketed under the guise that it would clean up our arteries and restore them to a pristine state.
We were told to avoid butter, lard, and dripping at the cost of our wellbeing as it turned out to be.
We seemed to forget the fact that breastmilk, which is the perfect food for little humans, consists of 55% saturated fats (like meat fats) and has zero toxic poly-unsaturated oils.
You have almost a completely new body every 11 months.
And to create new cells to replace your entire body, you need healthy fats.
On the other hand, toxic fats from margarine and Canola, Soy or other seeds will oxidize in your body.
Oxidizing is like rust.
You start to rust from the inside out.
If you find anything in your pantry that contains Canola, Soybean, sunflower or safflower oil, toss it in the bin immediately.
Or relegate it to your garden shed to be used as a potent pesticide.
Don’t give it to your children!
Good fats are vital.
We need them for our immune system, our brain cells (which are mostly fats) and our metabolism.
The liver uses fats to neutralize and get rid of toxins and heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, and arsenic.
Fats make you slim.
You can’t overdo it on fats.
Your body will tell you to stop and for the first time in your life you feel satisfied!
That means you won’t need to go on a shopping spree to get rid of that empty feeling saving you money as well.
6. Artificial Sweeteners
Artificial Sweeteners are found in around 6000 products on the market.
The list includes saccharin, sucralose and aspartame, and they are recognized to cause weight gain, migraines, and cancer.
Artificial sugar rots your brain according to some studies.
7. Soy products
Studies have shown that soy products interfere with your hormones and alter your gut microbiome, so people get sluggish and gain weight because it suppresses healthy thyroid function.
