The one inaccuracy in this short video is the erroneous reference to “healthy whole grains” which is basically yet another form of sugar.
I have found over the years, that one of the best sources of accurate information about nutrition and health is Dr. Joseph Mercola.
here’s a short quote from an excellent article by him:
Nearly 30 percent of the global population is overweight or obese, and more than one billion people, worldwide, are expected to fall into the obese category by 2030.
Concomitant to rising obesity rates among all age groups, there’s also been a rapid rise in chronic health problems such as type 2 diabetes, liver disease, heart disease, and cancer.
In one recent study,1 which analyzed data from more than five million people, every 11-pound increase in body weight was associated with an in increased risk for 10 types of cancer, including leukemia, uterine, gallbladder, kidney, cervix, and thyroid cancer.
According to a study published in 2013, nearly one in five US deaths is now associated with obesity. That’s nearly three times higher than previous estimates. Obesity is basically a marker for chronic disease. The underlying problem, linking obesity with all of these health issues, is metabolic dysfunction.
The obvious question then becomes: What is causing this rampant metabolic dysfunction in the first place? Compelling evidence shows that processed fructose is a primary driver for both obesity and type 2 diabetes.
The average American consumes one-third of a pound of sugar per day, half of which is processed fructose, which is the most damaging of all. The majority of all this sugar is hidden in processed foods and beverages, so to address obesity and/or diabetes, ridding your diet of processed fare is key for success.
When I decided to get serious about getting rid of ALL the secret sugars in my diet, I lost 15 pounds in a few short weeks. Please also remember that “healthy whole grains” are actually a significant form of “sugar” they way your body sees it. And remember dried fruit is also a high sugar food. The key when getting off sugar is to make sure you are getting healthy fats. Coconut oil, Coconut milk, olive oil, grass fed organic butter, local raw milk cheeses, macadamia nuts, hemp hearts, chia seeds, to name a few…
