Holiday Deprivation Can Make You ILL !
by Lena Sanchez
What we do know for sure is that no/low-fat and
no/low-carb foods can be detrimental to your
health. Of course your grocer's labels and shelves aren't telling you that.
With the holidays coming up the problem is going
to be overeating of the bad fats. Bad fats being
animal and hard vegetable/animal combinations
along with all the sugar your system can possibly
absorb bombarding your poor pancreas. "Too much
of a good thing is bad!" Still holds true…
The past few years has been pushing "no-fat,
low-carb" diets fad. Yes it's a fad that's out
there and helping make people ill rather than
healthy as you have been led to believe. This
premise has been propagated by the food industry,
who has no idea what is healthy but everything
about what it takes to sell you on eating more
then you should, eating processed foods and
certainly things that are going to make them money!
Remember this! No fat in your diet or eating the
majority of no/low fat foods and no/low carb
foods on the grocery shelves can make you ill
sooner or later! This is not a well-known fact
and the manufacturers of those products would not
like you to know that. Especially since it directly impacts their livelihood!
A bad thing with the low-carb, low-fat foods on
the shelves today is the overloading of sugar
substitutes packed into them to compensate. That
is setting the stage for making you ill. At the
same time these foods do not prevent obesity but
in fact creates more fat over the long haul,
which is supposed to be the reason for no/low-carb no/low-fat foods.
How do I know this?
A nurse friend worked at a hospital, at the
beginning the no-fat low-fat craze. The hospital
thought they should lead the way in being healthy
and enlisted a whole group of nurses and doctors,
who worked there, to go with a "no/low fat" diet.
They carefully created a so-called healthy "NO
Fat" diet. Sorry to say that six months on the
no/low-fat diet people began losing their hair,
thyroids were going berserk, their skin began to
dry out and look dehydrated, wrinkles occurred
early and some began picking up the patients
illnesses and the care taker became the patient
with the inability of soon getting over the
illness. Nerves were shot and tensions began to
be a problem on each floor that had volunteered
to do the no/low fat diet. It didn't take them
long to realize that fat is important to our
diets and a must for good health. Luckily when
they corrected the no/low fat diet and added
plant based fats, their health returned and
hopefully with no residual bad affects to show up
later. This is still to be determined.
Good fats are necessary to our health!
A study out of Australia had fantastic results on
a diet that has been said to be bad fat by those
who don't know! "People in the study who ate 1.5
avocados per day lowered their cholesterol levels
from an average of 236 to 217."
Other studies have found that low-carb diets and
sugar substitutes are creating fatter people with
neurological damage and illnesses cropping up!
It is important to distinguish between "bad fats"
those that typically come from four-legged
animals and "good fats" - those from fish, nuts,
avocados and soybeans and integrate them into your diet.
For the holidays we all will probably undergo a
great "bad fat" flux with all the cookies, candy,
puddings, turkey, ham, marshmallowed yams, etc.
Don't later over compensate with no/low carb or
no/low fats and compound the problem. Once will
not kill you but an ongoing diet of that type will!
During this holiday season make lunch your
biggest meal, when you're more likely to burn
calories after eating. DON'T skip breakfast to
"save up" for the holiday meal - that tactic
usually leads to snacking on sugary & fatty stuff
instead. Try nibbling some almonds, pumpkinseeds
or low-fat cheese with fruit before hitting a
party. By depriving yourself you are setting up
for a real shocker after the holidays. Make a
light supper/dinner your key to not gaining all those holiday pounds.
Eat all things in Moderation and forget the
no/low fats and no/low carb foods!!!
