A healthy weight for you…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

 

So many people around the world are not happy about their weight and will often complain that no matter what they do or whatever diet they try they simply cannot keep the weight off.

In reality trying a diet per se is the wrong thing to do, a diet should be your diet meaning it shouldn’t be something you do for a couple of weeks or months. Your diet should be the foods or should I be more specific here, the nutrition you consume on a daily basis.

Consuming these commonly eaten or consumed food and drinks are one of the main reason’s you find it nigh on impossible to maintain a healthy weight.

Sugar, alcohol and caffeine, in that order, are the worst foods you can eat and major contributors to weight gain.

All carbohydrates consumed will at some point be converted into sugar in the body; Sugar is the converted into triglycerides. When you see someone with extra weight around their hips and thighs, that’s not because they’ve been eating a fatty diet, it’s because of carbs and sugars which have been stored by the body’s natural  instinct to protect itself and store fat’s to be saved for fuel for later.

Sugar is consumed in so many unlikely foods that the average consumption of sugar worldwide is more than 43 lbs per person per
year.

That isn’t the case for Americans where sugar is consumed at a much higher level; in
fact it’s closer to 140 lbs per person per year.

Another  problem is that sugars will imbalance the chemistries of carbohydrate
metabolism and it does this more dramatically than anything else.

Sugar affects the balance of calcium and phosphorus these two should have a ratio of
2 ½ to 1, an ideal balanced ration is 10 mg% to  4 mg% of calcium to phosphorus.

When this balance is upset you may experience a build up of calculus on the teeth, cataracts in
the eyes, kidney stones, gallstones, arthritis or arterial sclerosis. This can lead to serious health problems,however, correcting
this imbalance has shown a reversal in these problems.

A good alternative to sugar is not the sugar substitutes like Aspartame or high
fructose corn syrup, but honey or agave nectar but agave nectar should also be used sparingly

I’ll mention this now before I forget; aspartame is probably in close to 9,000 food
and drink products sold in America. Aspartame has been shown to mimic the
detrimental effects of multiple sclerosis. It affects the pancreas negatively,
believing it has to deal with sugar and addressing the insulin issue when in
reality that isn’t a problem so the pancreas is overworked. It’s the “cry wolf”
syndrome so when the pancreas is actually called into play it simply can’t do
its job properly.

Aspartame is converted into methanol, then into formic acid (fire ants inject formic acid
when they bite) then into formaldehyde which as you know, is embalming fluid,
not nice for the living body.

Alcohol, most populations around the world have alcohol built into their social life, in
fact when a person doesn’t drink alcohol he or she is often seen as a strange
person.

I’ll not go into depth on this subject because I believe most people already know of
the detrimental effects alcohol can have on your liver and kidneys.

I think you all know that hard liquor is harder on your body than beer or wine,
wine is probably the easiest for the body to assimilate and has less harmful
effects on your chemistries. White wine is closer to the body’s natural ph so
is easier to deal with. I suppose if you are going to drink when you socialize
then white wine would be considered more acceptable.

Caffeine, looking back on my time with Dr. Huggins I distinctly remember him talking more
negatively about caffeine than anything else. In fact I remember him telling me
that if caffeine disappeared off the face of the earth then probably 40% of
physicians would be out of work.

One cup of coffee requires roughly 3 units of insulin to metabolize; a doctor had a

relative with diabetes who was taking 18 units of insulin per day. He asked how
much coffee he drank and was told about 6 cups per day. He put two and two
together as in 6 cups of coffee each requiring 3 units of insulin equaling 18
units. He explained his understanding and suggested not drinking coffee as a
way of eliminating the diabetes. He stopped drinking coffee but continued with
the insulin which resulted in insulin shock. I’m not suggesting you take this
action believing it will rid you of diabetes however it should be considered
and discussed with your medical professional.

There are about 30 mgs of caffeine in the average candy bar (chocolate, you’ll find
about 125 mgs in a cup of coffee, however a regular Starbucks contains around
250 mgs and their Grande has approximately 550 mgs.

Starbucks also put other ingredients in their coffee (excitotoxins) which make you crave
a “Starbucks” not just a coffee.

You’ll also find caffeine in most tea’s plus soft drinks; this can vary from as little
as 34 mgs to more than 70 mgs.

 

So cut your coffee intake, reduce your carbs and cut sugar completely, then establishing and maintaining a healthy weight will be a lot easier.
