Does Natural mean anything anymore? http://www.cornucopia.org/2011/10/natural-vs-organic-cereal/#more-4488 ~jea
With Vitamins 95% that are sold are not natural Video: http://tinyurl.com/6hxcel3
Now lets look at the cereal and granola products.
Federal law requires that organic food products be produced promoting ecological sustainability, without the toxic inputs and genetically engineered ingredients common in the conventional food system.
Increasingly, organic products are forced to compete with products that claim to be “natural.”
There are no restrictions for foods labeled “natural” (very basic standards exist only for meat products). The term often constitutes nothing more than meaningless marketing hype promoted by corporate interests seeking to cash in on the consumer desire for food produced in a genuinely sustainable manner.
Unlike the organic label, no government agency, certification group or other independent entity fully defines the term “natural” on processed food packages or ensures that the claim has merit.
This report explores the vast differences between organic cereal and granola products and so-called natural products, which contain ingredients grown on conventional farms where the use of toxic pesticides and genetically engineered organisms is widespread.
Our analysis reveals that “natural” products—using conventional ingredients—often are priced higher than equivalent organic products. This suggests that some companies are taking advantage of consumer confusion.
To find brands that are committed to sustainable agriculture, avoiding genetically engineered ingredients and supporting organic farmers, use the Cereal Scorecard.

Controversy swirls at the crossroads of agriculture and medicine
By Alla Katsnelson
September 20, 2004
Farming, one of the world's oldest practices has suddenly found itself entangled with modern medicine. Imagine this: at your child's appointment for a routine vaccination, the doctor proffers a banana genetically engineered to contain the vaccine and says, "Have her eat this and call me in the morning." Though still farfetched, this scenario is getting closer to reality, with the first batch of plant-made medicines - created by genetically modifying crops such as corn, soy, canola and even fruits such as tomatoes and bananas.

new possibilities for sugars-
Smart Sugars Lesson #35
by JC Spencer
Quantum science deals with unseen factors that can generate tipping points, producing what we call “anomalies”. An anomaly is what people name something when they don’t know what just happened. Something caused the tipping point which was not calculated into the equation and yet remains unexplained.
In the title of this lesson, “new possibilities for sugars” may be a misnomer in that the possibilities are not really new but our understanding what is happening and how to help make certain things happen ARE indeed new. Traditional physics deal with how things normally function. Quantum physics take into consideration those many unseen factors.
In biology, we witness life, the natural science of all living organisms. We study structure, function, and growth and all that make plants, animals and humans what they are. Living organisms consume and transform energy from various sources. Light influence on sugars is one factor we will discuss in just a moment.
In glycobiology (glycomics), we study various sugar structures (design) and witness the function of these sugars and the effects they have on living organisms.
Initially science taught us that sugars were only for energy. In recent years, we have learned that energy is but one of the many benefits or harmful functions of various sugars. Some sugars are the building blocks of the Operating System (OS) of the body and the backbone structure of the DNA double helix.
What the body does with glucose alone becomes the tipping point for diabetes and general health. What an infant child does with Royal Sugars in its body determines the quality of mental health and motor skills for that human life for the rest of its life.
For us, quantum glycobiology IS made up of the multitude of unseen factors that influence or dictate commands for what the human cell can do with the sugars. The sooner we understand these forces, the sooner we can explain the health anomalies we have witnessed over the past two decades. Any one of the multitude of influences may develop a tipping point.
In Smart Sugars Lesson #27, I mentioned many more hidden influences than just radiation, pressure, density, heat, microwave, and light. Each of these could serve as a tipping point. We learned that scientists have manipulated genes in diabetic mice with bursts of blue light. The blue light turns on the GLP-1 gene, which tells the pancreas to make more insulin. When the protein melanopsin (a light sensitive pigment in ganglion cells) is exposed to blue light, it triggers the production of calcium which activates the NFAT gene, which can turn on other genes.
There are an incalculable number of particles and waves within incalculable dimensions and frequencies. Quantum glycomics will provide explanations and open wide a new frontier of learning about sugars that will change the way we live.
Scientists question yesterday’s discoveries. And, rightfully so because often they misunderstood what they thought they observed. Now, the very foundation of modern physics is questioned with the recent discovery that neutrino particles have been clocked going faster than the speed of light. It now appears that Einstein was wrong.
With quantum glycomics, we can discover that a ridiculed sugar pill may, over time, be enormously more beneficial to human health than today’s antiquated toxic drugs.

People often make their skin harmful to their body by adding toxins to their skin that go through the skin into the blood then throughout the body.
Everybody knows about the skin patches are used to deliver drugs into the body.
There's a long list of drugs that can be delivered into the system through the skin.
Hormone replacement, stop smoking patches, pain reduction and lots more. In the case
of pain they use words like "Transdermal drug delivery in pain management." If you go
on a ocean cruise you can buy skin patches to stop seasickness. There is even some talk now about delivering synthetic vitamins through a skin patch.
Remember all this when you put your perfume or aftershave lotion on your skin. Read
the label and then ask yourself, do I really want this in my bloodstream? Do I
really want my liver & my immune system to stop doing what they do to neutralize
these new poisons. I call them poisons because anything that is not food (air and
water) is harmful to your system if it is in your blood.
Put your perfume or aftershave on your fabric or clothes, not on your skin.
Check the label on any and all skincare products that you use. There are natural
skincare products on the market.
Synthetic and mixed fiber cloth are also harmful to the skin and your health.

Major food companies are lobbying the government to withdraw the guidelines completely and instead use the industry's own definition of "responsible advertising." The message couldn't be clearer: they don't care if their products hurt kids. They care about the bottom line. So we joined forces with the Center for Science in the Public Interest to take on the food industry and tell its chief executive officers to stop the attacks and start helping our children. We need you to stand with us today to make sure they get the message loud and clear.
Click here to stand with EWG today in demanding that the CEOs of 13 manufacturers use their resources to market healthier food to our children, not to lobby to protect the unhealthy status quo.
Because of the alarming rates of childhood obesity, in 2009, Congress instructed the Federal Trade Commission, Food and Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control, and Department of Agriculture to form an Interagency Working Group to look into child-targeted advertising and recommend standards for marketing food to children under 18.
When the Working Group published its draft, voluntary guidelines in April, it suggested that food companies adopt two voluntary principles, not legally enforceable by any regulatory agency, that food advertised to children should:
make "a meaningful contribution to a healthful diet" by containing a significant amount of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, fish, extra lean meat or poultry, eggs, nuts and seeds, or beans.
have only "minimal quantities of nutrients that could have a negative impact on health and weight," such as sodium, saturated fat, trans fat and added sugars.
These commonsense recommendations would encourage children to adopt healthy eating habits. But the goal for big food interests is an even fatter bottom line, so they're lobbying the government and calling on the Working Group to throw out its voluntary proposal and use the industry's own guidelines for responsible advertising.
We can't let them get away with it. EWG is taking on the food industry and we need you to stand with us - companies need to hear from their customers.
Click here right away to tell the CEOs of 13 large manufacturers to market healthier food to children, not lobby the government.
Thank you for standing up for healthy children. We can't move markets without your support.

Dr. Talitha Best, post-doctoral research fellow at the Nutritional Physiology Research Centre, University of South Australia, and the Brain Sciences Institute, Swinburne University of Technology, recently convened and chaired a symposium entitled “Eating behaviour from a cognitive experimental perspective” at the Society for Applied Research in Memory and Cognition’s (SARMAC) ninth international conference, which met June 27-30, 2011 in New York City. Scientists participating in Dr. Best’s symposium presented experimental findings from numerous studies that demonstrated the bi-directional relationship between eating behaviour and cognition. These studies explored the diverse and complex cognitive processes that are involved in, and affected by, eating behaviour and dietary interventions. Specific dietary interventions under investigation included glucose, tea and plant-polysaccharides (Ambrotose® complex). Dr. Best presented the results of a study that she recently conducted with Australian colleagues on Ambrotose complex. This human, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, which evaluated the effects of Ambrotose complex powder on mood, memory and cognitive tasks, showed for the first time that improvements in cognitive task performance were independent of blood glucose responses.*†
The purpose of the SARMAC Conference is to advance memory and cognition science by bringing together international experts actively engaged in research. Participants were treated to keynote addresses from leaders in memory and cognition research who explored a variety of important issues, including the need for researchers to systematically document unpublished scientific findings.

Most people don't fail at MLM.
Most never try to have an income.
Most choose not to get the training they need to be able to succeed.
Most think they know how to do it and don't ask for help, won't attend trainings, or don't do what they are taught.
Most people decide they just don't like it or want to continue doing it.
So they didn't fail at it, they quit. They decided they did not like it and didn't do what they needed to try to suceed.
Or they never started. They just wanted to be a consumer.
And there is no way to get hurt or lose money in MLM. You get the benefit of the products or you are refunded.
Its far safer and lower risk than investing in stock, or Forex.
Its less costly than going on a skiing trip where you can't make any money or even hitting the casinos.
So when people say most fail at MLM it is an excuse because they got their hopes up but decided to quit instead of learning and helping others so they could succeed.
These are the kind of negative concepts that if associates are not trained in and given another perspective will make them less effective or shut them down. Once they know these they are stronger and feel better about what they do and able to persevere and influence others to duplicate..
Along with the other concepts I sent in my previous email.
I have never heard Tim Sales discuss a product or ingredients. Maybe he does but it is not what he puts out on training people so they can make sales.

If you buy orange juice at the store, you may lean towards the kind that advertises itself as “100 percent juice” and “not made from concentrate”. But have you ever wondered why every glass of it tastes exactly the same? That’s because the flavor of store-bought orange juice has more to do with chemistry than nature.
For industrially-produced orange juice, after the oranges are squeezed, the juice is stored in giant holding tanks and the oxygen is removed from them, which allows the liquid to keep for up to a year without spoiling. It also makes the juice completely flavorless. So the industry uses “flavor packs” to re-flavor the juice.
According to Food Renegade:
“Juice companies therefore hire flavor and fragrance companies ... to engineer flavor packs to add back to the juice to make it taste fresh. Flavor packs aren’t listed as an ingredient on the label because technically they are derived from orange essence and oil. Yet those in the industry will tell you that the flavor packs, whether made for reconstituted or pasteurized orange juice, resemble nothing found in nature.”

Read the rest of Dr. Mercola’s article and do keep in mind that if you add your city water, even if it is not fluoridated, Dr. Blaylock, MD, said almost all cities put aluminum into the water to perticipate out the solids and the citrus in the orange juice causes the aluminum to become even more toxic to the brain causing Dr. Blaylock says citrus makes that aluminium even more dangerous in causing alzhemiers.

Don't get cancer in California
As you may know, I work very hard to push for medical freedom around the country. It started in Alaska, where I helped get the country's first medical freedom law passed. Many states have followed what we did in Alaska. Then I moved to California. About 7 years ago, I participated in a similar bill in California. California is the largest state in the Union and, as California goes, so goes the nation. So we're working hard to press for medical freedom here.
Prior to us passing the medical freedom bill, the California assembly passed a billed directed at alternative medicine. Allegedly to protect the public, this law made it a criminal act for any doctor to treat cancer outside of slash, burn, and poison (aka surgery, radiation, and chemo). They did this with absolutely no evidence that these horrible treatments did anyone any good. If they took the time to do a little research, they would have found that chemo gives at best a few weeks of extra life. And it does so at an extraordinary cost to quality of life and pocketbook. Your oncologist can kill you. But they can imprison your integrative medical doctor or naturopath for curing you.
Vitamin E's Superstar Cousin:
✓ Lowers Total Cholesterol…
✓ Lowers "Bad" LDL...…
✓ Raises "Good" HDL...…
✓ Lowers Triglycerides...…
✓ And Actually Raises CoQ10...…
What is this powerhouse heart health nutrient?
This law doesn't govern the medical board, though. In fact, the California Medical Board has done an outstanding job of respecting the letter and intent of the medical freedom bill here. Informed consent is the key. I spoke with the executive director of the California Medical Board about this. She told me that the medical board looks the other way when it comes to cancer treatment so long as the doctor has provided informed consent. That means the doctors aren't in danger of losing their medical license for treating cancer.
Instead, the previous law gives a different arm of the state government, the Department of Health, the power to throw these doctors in jail for treating cancer. They effectively do an end-run around the medical board. So if you live in California and have cancer, you have to use chemo, surgery, and/or radiation to treat it — unless you leave the state. As a result, many people, including a number of celebrities, head to Mexico in droves for cancer treatment.
There is good news though. California Citizens for Health Freedom (CCHF), the same group that sponsored the medical freedom bill years ago, is now pushing to repeal the criminalization of non-toxic cancer therapy. This is very important for all of us in California. And, it's important to those outside the Golden State, since California sets the pace for medicine throughout the country.
I encourage you to visit and support California Citizens for Health Freedom athttp://www.citizenshealth.org/
We passed the medical freedom law with many hundreds of messages to the legislature from people like you. The messages drowned out the garbage from the medical lobby. We can do it again. Please contact CCHF and assist in any way you can.
Yours for better health and medical freedom,

There are at least 10 times more bacteria in the human gut than there are individual cells that make up the human body. That’s more than 1014 bacteria comprising over 500 different species. Certain species, mainly belonging to the genera Bifidobacterium or Lactobacillus, are beneficial, or “friendly,” bacteria, because they promote gastrointestinal health. With over 70% of immune cells located in the digestive tract, a healthy gut can also help maintain a healthy immune system. Unfortunately, a number of factors can result in an imbalance of beneficial bacteria such as stress, aging and consumption of an unhealthy diet that is low in fiber and high in fat. Daily supplementation with GI-ProBalance slimsticks can help normalize the delicate balance of intestinal bacteria required to keep your digestive tract healthy, which in turn can help keep your whole body healthy.

Once upon a time, antipsychotics were reserved for a relatively small number of patients with hard-core psychiatric diagnoses - primarily schizophrenia and bipolar disorder - to treat such symptoms as delusions, hallucinations, or formal thought disorder. Today, it seems, everyone is taking antipsychotics. Parents are told that their unruly kids are in fact bipolar, and in need of anti-psychotics, while old people with dementia are dosed, in large numbers, with drugs once reserved largely for schizophrenics. Americans with symptoms ranging from chronic depression to anxiety to insomnia are now being prescribed anti-psychotics at rates that seem to indicate a national mass psychosis.
It is anything but a coincidence that the explosion in antipsychotic use coincides with the pharmaceutical industry's development of a new class of medications known as "atypical antipsychotics." Beginning with Zyprexa, Risperdal, and Seroquel in the 1990s, followed by Abilify in the early 2000s, these drugs were touted as being more effective than older antipsychotics like Haldol and Thorazine. More importantly, they lacked the most noxious side effects of the older drugs - in particular, the tremors and other motor control problems.
The atypical anti-psychotics were the bright new stars in the pharmaceutical industry's roster of psychotropic drugs - costly, patented medications that made people feel and behave better without any shaking or drooling. Sales grew steadily, until by 2009 Seroquel and Abilify numbered fifth and sixth in annual drug sales, and prescriptions written for the top three atypical antipsychotics totaled more than 20 million. Suddenly, antipsychotics weren't just for psychotics any more.
Not just for psychotics anymore
By now, just about everyone knows how the drug industry works to influence the minds of American doctors, plying them with gifts, junkets, ego-tripping awards, and research funding in exchange for endorsing or prescribing the latest and most lucrative drugs. "Psychiatrists are particularly targeted by Big Pharma because psychiatric diagnoses are very subjective," says Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman, whose PharmedOut project tracks the industry's influence on American medicine, and who last month hosted a conference on the subject at Georgetown. A shrink can't give you a blood test or an MRI to figure out precisely what's wrong with you. So it's often a case of diagnosis by prescription. (If you feel better after you take an anti-depressant, it's assumed that you were depressed.) As the researchers in one study of the drug industry's influence put it, "the lack of biological tests for mental disorders renders psychiatry especially vulnerable to industry influence." For this reason, they argue, it's particularly important that the guidelines for diagnosing and treating mental illness be compiled "on the basis of an objective review of the scientific evidence" - and not on whether the doctors writing them got a big grant from Merck or own stock in AstraZeneca.
Marcia Angell, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine and a leading critic of the Big Pharma, puts it more bluntly: "Psychiatrists are in the pocket of industry." Angell has pointed out that most of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), the bible of mental health clinicians, have ties to the drug industry. Likewise, a 2009 study showed that 18 out of 20 of the shrinks who wrote the American Psychiatric Association's most recent clinical guidelines for treating depression, bipolar disorders, and schizophrenia had financial ties to drug companies.
"The use of psychoactive drugs - including both antidepressants and antipsychotics - has exploded...[yet] 'the tally of those who are disabled...increased nearly two and a half times."
Marcia Angell, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine
In a recent article in The New York Review of Books, Angell deconstructs what she calls an apparent "raging epidemic of mental illness" among Americans. The use of psychoactive drugs—including both antidepressants and antipsychotics—has exploded, and if the new drugs are so effective, Angell points out, we should "expect the prevalence of mental illness to be declining, not rising." Instead, "the tally of those who are so disabled by mental disorders that they qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) increased nearly two and a half times between 1987 and 2007 - from one in 184 Americans to one in seventy-six. For children, the rise is even more startling - a thirty-five-fold increase in the same two decades. Mental illness is now the leading cause of disability in children." Under the tutelage of Big Pharma, we are "simply expanding the criteria for mental illness so that nearly everyone has one." Fugh-Berman agrees: In the age of aggressive drug marketing, she says, "Psychiatric diagnoses have expanded to include many perfectly normal people."
Cost benefit analysis
What's especially troubling about the over-prescription of the new antipsychotics is its prevalence among the very young and the very old - vulnerable groups who often do not make their own choices when it comes to what medications they take. Investigations into antipsychotic use suggests that their purpose, in these cases, may be to subdue and tranquilize rather than to treat any genuine psychosis.
Carl Elliott reports in Mother Jones magazine: "Once bipolar disorder could be treated with atypicals, rates of diagnoses rose dramatically, especially in children. According to a recent Columbia University study, the number of children and adolescents treated for bipolar disorder rose 40-fold between 1994 and 2003." And according to another study, "one in five children who visited a psychiatrist came away with a prescription for an antipsychotic drug." http://motherjones.com
A remarkable series published in the Palm Beach Post (http://www.palmbeachpost.com/) in May true revealed that the state of Florida's juvenile justice department has literally been pouring these drugs into juvenile facilities, "routinely" doling them out "for reasons that never were approved by federal regulators." The numbers are staggering: "In 2007, for example, the Department of Juvenile Justice bought more than twice as much Seroquel as ibuprofen. Overall, in 24 months, the department bought 326,081 tablets of Seroquel, Abilify, Risperdal and other antipsychotic drugs for use in state-operated jails and homes for children…That's enough to hand out 446 pills a day, seven days a week, for two years in a row, to kids in jails and programs that can hold no more than 2,300 boys and girls on a given day." Further, the paper discovered that "One in three of the psychiatrists who have contracted with the state Department of Juvenile Justice in the past five years has taken speaker fees or gifts from companies that make antipsychotic medications."
In addition to expanding the diagnoses of serious mental illness, drug companies have encouraged doctors to prescribe atypical anti-psychotics for a host of off-label uses. In one particularly notorious episode, the drugmaker Eli Lilly pushed Zyprexa on the caregivers of old people with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, as well as agitation, anxiety, and insomnia. In selling to nursing home doctors, sales reps reportedly used the slogan "five at five"—meaning that five milligrams of Zyprexa at 5 pm would sedate their more difficult charges. The practice persisted even after FDA had warned Lilly that the drug was not approved for such uses, and that it could lead to obesity and even diabetes in elderly patients.
In a video interview conducted in 2006, Sharham Ahari, who sold Zyprexa for two years at the beginning of the decade, described to me how the sales people would wangle the doctors into prescribing it. At the time, he recalled, his doctor clients were giving him a lot of grief over patients who were "flipping out" over the weight gain associated with the drug, along with the diabetes. "We were instructed to downplay side effects and focus on the efficacy of drug…to recommend the patient drink a glass a water before taking a pill before the meal and then after the meal in hopes the stomach would expand" and provide an easy way out of this obstacle to increased sales. When docs complained, he recalled, "I told them, ‘Our drug is state of the art. What's more important? You want them to get better or do you want them to stay the same--a thin psychotic patient or a fat stable patient.'"
For the drug companies, Shahrman says, the decision to continue pushing the drug despite side effects is matter of cost benefit analysis: Whether you will make more money by continuing to market the drug for off-label use, and perhaps defending against lawsuits, than you would otherwise. In the case of Zyprexa, in January 2009, Lilly settled a lawsuit brought by with the US Justice Department, agreeing to pay $1.4 billion, including "a criminal fine of $515 million, the largest ever in a health care case, and the largest criminal fine for an individual corporation ever imposed in a United States criminal prosecution of any kind,''the Department of Justice said in announcing the settlement." But Lilly's sale of Zyprexa in that year alone were over $1.8 billion. http://psychdrugs.wordpress.com/2008/08/17/eli-lilly-the-maker-of-prozac-zyprexa-strattera-evista-thiomersal-and-xigris/
Making patients worse
People and Power: Drug Money
As it turns out, the atypical antipsychotics may not even be the best choice for people with genuine, undisputed psychosis.
A growing number of health professionals have come to think these drugs are not really as effective as older, less expensive medicines which they have replaced, that they themselves produce side effects that cause other sorts of diseases such as diabetes and plunge the patient deeper into the gloomy world of serious mental disorder. Along with stories of success comes reports of people turned into virtual zombies.
Elliott reports in Mother Jones: "After another large analysis in The Lancet found that most atypicals actually performed worse than older drugs, two senior British psychiatrists penned a damning editorial that ran in the same issue. Dr. Peter Tyrer, the editor of the British Journal of Psychiatry, and Dr. Tim Kendall of the Royal College of Psychiatrists wrote: "The spurious invention of the atypicals can now be regarded as invention only, cleverly manipulated by the drug industry for marketing purposes and only now being exposed." http://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/publications.aspx
Bottom line: Stop Big Pharma and the parasitic shrink community from wantonly pushing these pills across the population.

Sand is a cheap and easy to find water filter. It's also not a very good water filter. But a new development--coating sand in graphite--could make it possible for everyone in the world to have easy access to clean water.
Nearly one billion people lack access to safe drinking water. There are creative ways to purify dirty water when a Brita isn't handy, to be sure--people living in areas with plentiful sand, for example, can pour water through sand and pebble-filled filters. But while the sand quickly filters water and removes large particles, it is, not surprisingly, ineffective at removing heavy metals, pathogens, and other toxins that find their way into dirty water.
A newly developed "coated sand," uses graphite oxide--a substance used in the chemical process for making pencil lead (or graphite)--to filter out the contaminants that regular sand can't touch. It could be cheap to produce and almost as plentiful as plain old sand.
When Rice University researchers ran two model contaminants (mercury and Rhodamine B dye) through the super sand, they found that the coated substance removed contaminants as well as commercially available active carbon filtration systems. The big difference: The super sand is cheap. Graphite is inexpensive (waste graphite from mining operations could even be used), and the coating process can occur at room temperature.
Nanosheets of graphite oxide can be tailored to have hydrophobic (water-hating) and hydrophilic (water-loving) properties. When mixed in a solution with sand, they self-assemble into coatings around the grains and keep the hydrophilic parts exposed. Adding aromatic thiol molecules to the coatings enhances their ability to sequester water-soluble contaminants.
Coated sand could, in other words, be at least one solution to our growing water crisis--along with cactus gum, the Tata Swach, and fog-harvesting devices.

'Deut 21:18-21 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.'

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Have you ever stopped to think for a minute about the types foods people
eat everyday? For example, just look at the handful of giant food
conglomerates like Pepsi, Coca Cola, Dole, Nestle, General Mills
(Pillsbury, Betty Crocker) that heavily influence what the average
consumer in the U.S. eats, day in and day out. Their products are on the shelves EVERYWHERE.
...And what's the one indisputable common denominator between all of these companies and the majority of their products?
Not only is sugar bad for your health (and your waistline), it's VERY
addictive. In fact, it's so addictive that on average a person in the
U.S. consumes a whopping 45.3 pounds of sugar a year...that's pretty gross when you think about it!
But here's the kicker - that 45.3 pounds of sugar only includes "pure" sugar consumption. That means sugar from soft drinks, junk foods, pastries, chocolate, juices, shakes, ice cream, honey, syrup (well you get the idea). That number does NOT include breads, pasta, rice and other starchy foods that also turn into sugar in your body.
I can't imagine what the total amount of sugar one's body has to metabolize on a daily, weekly and yearly basis (poor liver!).
The problem is, we've all gotten so used to eating sugar that our view of normalcy has become completely distorted. If it's not sweet, it doesn't taste good. Even the "healthy" foods and drinks are filled with sugar -- or what they disguise as something healthy like apple juice, evaporated cane juice, dates, just to name a few.
Even worse are the "organic" labels that fool people into thinking that even though there's sugar in them it's somehow better for you? It's no wonder we're faced with an epidemic rate of obesity and diabetes.
There was a New York Times article written by Gary Taubes' titled, "Is Sugar Toxic?" If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend it. Here's the link:
And if you don't have time to read the article, at least take a look at
this eye-opening graphic:
That picture really puts things into perspective, huh?!
So what can you do to cut down on these sugary foods?
Well, you have to start by redefining "normal".
If you've been under the assumption that your sugar intake is normal, you may want to take a second look. And keep in mind, as I stated earlier, that sugar doesn't have to be sweet. Refined carbohydrates like bread, cereal, pasta, rice all turn into sugar...and these foods add up quick.
It's important to know that sugar in your body triggers a powerful hormone called "insulin", which among many things is responsible for storing fat in your body. So more sugar means higher insulin response which programs your body to store more fat. It may be a simplified way of looking at it, but the it gets the important point across.
If you've been struggling with your weight, take a look at your diet - especially your sugar/carb intake. Even if you think you eat healthy, you may be surprised to find out how much sugar/carbs you actually eat. Try taking a carb count for one day - just keep track of how many grams of carbohydrates you consume and take a look at your total at the end of the day.
The optimal amount of daily carbohydrate intake varies with body size, lean body weight and activity levels, but it's been my experience (working with thousands of people), that 100 grams of carbohydrates per day is the ballpark figure you want to be shooting for if you want to lose weight and get some good definition on those abs.
Now if 100 grams seem too low, just keep in mind that it's low relative to what's considered "normal" by today's standard, which is FAR from what normal *really* is. Reducing your sugar/carb intake isn't easy (at first), but the trimmed waistline and improved health benefits are well worth it. Also, cutting down on carbs doesn't mean starving yourself, it means making better choices.
Here are 7 tips to help you eliminate excess sugar/carbs form your diet:
#1 - Consume protein with every meal.
#2 - Avoid refined carbs like breads, pasta, rice and all wheat flour products.
#3 - Cut out soft drinks and drink water instead. If you need to add some taste squeeze a wedge of lemon or lime in the water.
#4 - Skip starchy foods like breads, muffins, bagels and cereal for breakfast. Instead, have some eggs and fruit or a protein shake.
#4 - Go for a salad instead of a sandwich. If you feel that it's not satisfying enough, add extra protein and fat (like avocado) into your salad.
#6 - Avoid sweets and starchy snacks, especially in the mid-afternoon when you're energy level starts to wane and your sugar cravings hit. Instead, snack on nuts, fruits, jerky, cottage cheese or Greek yogurt (if you eat dairy).
#7 - Stay away from breads, pasta, rice and even potatoes at dinner time and replace them with cruciferous vegetables that are hearty and healthy like broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts.
