The Proof…We Have Been Fooled!

Posted by doctorjames on July 22, 2008

I love when the truth comes out! It does not happen often, but I do think this woman does a very good job at destroying our health myths that marketing tries to cover up. Highly processed and sugar laden foods are the cause of all obesity! The truth is dietary fat has absolutely nothing to do with it! Eat the fat, but stay away from the sugar. Fat does not even stimulate insulin. Sugar is so problematic because the body stores what it cannot use at the time as stored energy in the form of fat. It is no wonder why one out of every 3 persons in our nation is overweight, and one out of every four are pre-diabetic or diabetic.

Remember, whole foods will always be what produces health. You are not going to find health in processed foods or beverages. To make something for the everyday consumer that will appeal to their taste buds, sugar has to be added! Check out the link below to view the video from ABC News.

The key to health is avoiding refined white sugar, white flour, and trans fats. By avoiding what I call the big 3, your choices are limited! Also, drink plenty of water, practice stress reduction techniques, drink alcohol in moderation, and set yourself on a path for a healthier life. Love more, laugh more, and enjoy the fresh air. Exercise 3-5 times per week and you will start to see yourself change right before your very eyes!

If you are not sure how to get started, I suggest that you follow this link and take what is called the nutritional typing test by Dr. Joseph Mercola. It is an invaluable tool to produce profound changes in your health. Take it today and start feeling better tomorrow!
