6 FOOD DECEPTIONS OR HIDDEN LIES

1362-4

You probably didn’t know that cellulose or wood is added to or used as a non- nutritional filler in some foods for texture and it costs about 30% of the cost of real flour.

Burger meat is frequently treated with ammonia gas to kill germs.

100% orange juice, not from concentrate, is frequently kept bottled for as long as a year and has flavor packets added to flavor what is a rather tasteless orange juice product naturally.

Artificial blueberries are added to some yogurts and cereals.

Free range chickens are actually being grown in huge warehouses.

Some companies have bogus claims for health benefits such as heart, coronary, and cardiovascular health without any scientific backing. Foods claim to support immunity whatever that is supposed to mean and once again with no scientific proof.

CONCLUSION:

Words can be misleading and a word such as NATURAL may still mean that artificial ingredients were added and that pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs and other unnatural techniques or chemicals were used to grow the food. Your only guarantee for some certainty in natural quality is to buy certified organic food. Download a list of certified organic foods from nongmoshoppingguide.com.

THE TRUTH ABOUT 8 FEARED NUTRITION MYTHS

food

The following 8 statements are true and if you don’t believe them then you believe in one or more food myths.

All calorie sources are the same (Calories from proteins and fats will satiate you sooner and you won’t have to overeat which is likely if you get most of your calories from carbs and sugars.)

Eating much protein will not harm your kidneys and cause osteoporosis

A low fat diet is not the healthiest way to eat

Salt is not dangerous to eat unless you have high blood pressure

Saturated fat from meat and other sources does not raise your cholesterol nor does it cause heart attacks and death

Coffee in moderation is not bad for you

Eggs rich in cholesterol can’t give you heart disease

Low carb diets with much saturated fat does not increase your risk for heart disease and other chronic illnesses

To get more detailed information about the 8 myths read the following Popular Science article.

http://www.popsci.com/node/74033/edit 

CONCLUSION: Humans are omnivores who can eat natural proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Eat a great variety of all kinds of certified organic foods which can include fast food once in a while and eat only when you are hungry. Stop eating when you feel full and eat only about once a day. If you are not hungry don’t eat at all. You can not eat anything all day long and you will not starve or die!

EXPERIMENT with new foods and eat them if they taste good, are not artificially sweetened with added sugar, and are not overly processed. Don’t be afraid that new foods will poison you or make you sick in some way. Natural unprocessed food is not bad for you so don’t get paranoid about eating something new. Variety is the spice and health of life!!!!!!

PREGNANCY THREE WEEKS AT A TIME

breech-pregnancy-1

3 WEEKS PREGNANT

A pregnancy test won’t confirm it yet but the fertilized egg or blastocyst attaches to the uterus lining and is the size of a pin. You probably won’t feel anything, though some women experience cramps and heavier vaginal discharge.

6 WEEKS PREGNANT

The heart has formed and the brain, lungs, arms, legs and nervous system are all beginning to form. In addition to morning sickness, you may feel weight gain and sense a darkened areola and breast soreness. Make sure you begin to eat as wide a variety of certified organic foods as you can because the baby needs good nutrition from the mother. You should also stop smoking, drinking alcohol, and eating many sweets which will greatly impact your baby negatively.

9 WEEKS PREGNANT

Your baby is the size of a grape and the ears, bones, fingers, toes, eyes, ears, lips and nose are all in the process of forming. Mom has about 50% more blood circulating in the body and the uterus is about the size of a grapefruit. The heart now has four chambers and you may feel sleepy with morning sickness.

12 WEEKS PREGNANT

You can probably see your baby in the first trimester with ultrasound and you can check your baby for risk of Down syndrome. Baby face looks more human and the kidneys may have started to secrete urine as the nerve cells multiply at a speedy rate. The baby may begin sucking and stimulating areas of the uterus may cause baby movement which you will not feel for several more weeks.

15 WEEKS PREGNANT

Ultra sound may detect twins at this point and the baby has fingerprints and a soft layer of hair covering the skin and the baby may be sucking its thumb. You may have your energy back and have better sleep. Trisomy 18 a genetic disorder of the brain or spinal cord which most babies don’t survive can be tested for.

18 WEEKS PREGNANT

 

The baby is about six inches long and has developed a sense of hearing. If you have lowered blood pressure you may feel dizzy when you stand up speedily.

21 WEEKS PREGNANT

The baby is producing his first poop and swollen ankles, hands and feet can be symptoms of preeclampsia, or dangerously high blood pressure. Some women successfully exercise during the entire pregnancy period almost up to birth and this is a healthy thing to be doing rather than remaining sedentary during most of the pregnancy. If you exercise during pregnancy chances are you won’t need a C section because your muscles will be in good condition to deliver a baby.

24 WEEKS PREGNANT

Baby is more than a foot long and the mother may start to feel some movement as the baby moves limbs. Lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are more defined but the iris lacks pigment. Mom’s hair is more lustrous and the nails may be growing at a more rapid speed. Boy’s testes are making their descent and girls have developed a uterus and ovaries. Pressure on the bladder may mean more frequent urination. It may be time to test for gestational diabetes which can cause breathing and other problems at birth.

27 WEEKS PREGNANT

Baby weighs about two pounds and the eyelids are working. If there is a premature birth there is approximately an 80% chance of survival.

30 WEEKS PREGNANT

Fetus may begin to mimic breathing and weighs about three pounds. Mom may be fighting off leg cramps, constipation, hemorrhoids, sleeplessness, mood swings, and bouts of depression.

33 WEEKS PREGNANT

Baby is about 16 inches long and mom may be having a little heartburn so the meals should be frequenter and smaller. Slight contractions may be happening but this is nothing to worry about.

36 WEEKS PREGNANT

Moms may get some relief from breathing problems as the baby drops into the pelvis but adds more pressure on the bladder. About 31 percent of births are C sections so talk to your doctor about not having one unless it is a severe emergency. Over 95% of births can be natural without complications if you are not given artificial epidural drugs which reduce pain and make C sections almost necessary.

39 WEEKS PREGNANT

The baby may be anywhere between about 6 and 9 pounds with baby fat to make survival outside the womb possible. The cervix may be dilating in preparation for birth. The skeleton bone has hardened but the skull bone has not hardened so that birth can occur relatively easily without a hard skull blocking exit from the vagina. The baby should be in head down or breech position ready for birth and your mucous plug may have ruptured. If your water breaks at any point during pregnancy you should go to the hospital immediately.

If you have had a successful first pregnancy without an epidural or a frequently unnecessary C section then strongly consider a home birth with the help of a midwife the second time around. You will save a boatload of money and your family can share in the birthing experience to see how babies are born naturally!!!!!!

ARE NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS NECESSARY IF YOU EAT HEALTHY???

dep_11815952-Wild-bee-hive

Nutritional supplements are used in the American diet because most soils are depleted of the natural balance of nutrients and humans think that artificial supplements are necessary to rebalance nutrient intake. Taking supplements will only put your body more out of balance and may create an artificial adjustment by your body to the lopsided nutrition. What you really need is an intake of balanced micro nutrients which supplements don’t provide.

If you eat a varied certified organic food diet and supplement it with natural bee pollen from wild flowers you can kiss unnatural unbalanced food supplements good bye and save a lot of money doing so.  Also a diet of raw milk and blood sausage about once a week can ensure a good nutrient rich diet without the need for a very varied array of organic foods.

What follows is an article ARE NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS NECESSARY?

http://www.nutritionalsupplementsforhealth.com/Nutritionalsupplementsarticle.html

IF YOU ALREADY ARE DRINKING RAW MILK ONCE IN A WHILE AND EATING BLOOD SAUSAGE ABOUT ONCE A WEEK AND ARE EATING THE CERTIFIED ORGANIC FOODS OF YOUR CHOICE AS FREQUENTLY AS YOU CAN AFFORD THEN A LITTLE TEASPOON OF WILD FLOWER BEE POLLEN ONCE A WEEK WILL ENSURE THAT YOU WILL NOT NEED ANY FOOD SUPPLEMENTS AT ALL AND YOU CAN SAVE A BOATLOAD OF MONEY ON FOOD. BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!!!!

8 LIES FROM FITNESS “EXPERTS” YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT!!!!!!

Lies from Jackie Warner:

From Jackie Warner

Avoid These Three Mistakes

Are you making one of the three mistakes celebrity trainer Jackie Warner advises against? Setting goals that are too ambitious, shying away from resistance training and failing to incorporate superstar foods like grapefruit and oatmeal into your diet all can hinder your progress. Watch

 

Truths:

You don’t need ambitious goals unless you are into building body mass as a weight lifter or muscular body builder. Most people just need to tone their bodies with fast body movements about 3 times a week or even less for about 20 minutes or less. Resistance training is unnatural and should not be done at all unless you are a body builder. There is no superstar food like grapefruit and oatmeal in your diet. The truth is that 100% of certified organic foods are superstar foods and you should be eating as large a variety of them as possible.

Lies from Jackie Warner:

From Jackie Warner

Stop Doing Crunches

Big movements like squats and pushups are better at achieving a flatter belly than crunches because they work your core significantly. Do these in place of crunches for a more effective belly workout. Watch

Truths:

There is no scientific proof that squats and pushups and crunches will give you a flatter belly. Pushups primarily exercise your hands and not your core whatever that means. Localizing exercise will build up muscles in that localized area but the loss of fat occurs equally throughout the body and has little to do with localized exercise of a body part. If you exercised your thigh muscles would your cellulite disappear almost overnight or ever? The truthful answer is a resounding no!

Lies from Ellie Krieger:

From Ellie Krieger

Add Protein To Post-Workout Meals

Include protein in meals after working up a sweat. It will help your body absorb carbohydrates better. A combination of the two will help your body replenish after working out. Watch

Truths:

Fats are just as important in replenishing your body after an intensive bodily workout. People don’t just survive on proteins and carbohydrates!

Lies from Joy Bauer:

From Joy Bauer

Don’t Skip Snacks

Go for snacks that are calorie controlled — 150 calories or less is a good rule of thumb. When your stomach is growling, try a piece of fruit like a banana or peach with a handful of nuts; a granola bar; or roasted edamame.Watch

Truths:

You should eat only when hungry and should shy away from snacking because it will turn you into a nonstop daily eating machine with your stomach constantly growling asking for food during the day. Snacking is a recipe for overeating in small quantities. Have one hearty belly filling meal once a day with plenty of variety foods and drink and you can stop counting calories in your life. If you have a tendency to be fat change your diet radically to better food and you won’t be wasting your time calorie counting.

Lies from Lacy Stone:

From Lacey Stone

Keep Moving Throughout The Day

Sitting for extended periods at your desk during the work day raises the risk for developing heart disease. Interrupting long periods of sitting at your desk at work with two minute breaks of light or moderate-intensity activity such as walking and stretching can help curb risks of increased glucose and insulin levels.

Truths:

Sitting at a desk does not increase the risk for developing heart disease if you are eating a wide variety of healthy food in your life. Increased glucose and insulin levels only exist if you pump your body full of soda a sweet foods and snacks during working hours. There is no risk of increased dangerous levels of glucose and insulin if you are sedentary and moderate your sugar input during the day.

Lies from Terri Walsh:

Lift Weights To Keep Your Body Young

As women age, relying on impact exercises alone is a mistake. Resistance training keeps your bones strong and stimulates muscle growth — and the more muscle you have, the more fat you’ll burn, even when you’re not exercising. Watch

Truths:

Your bones will remain strong whether or not you exercise if you eat a healthy wide variety of organic food in your life. Even in old age when confined to a wheelchair eating healthy will keep your bones strong and a minimum of natural body movement exercise will keep your body as fit as possible under natural geriatric old age degradation. If you are genetically going to suffer from osteoporosis in later life there is nothing you can realistically do about it. The more muscle that you have does not mean that you will burn more fat and get thinner because once body builders stop exercising they get fat quickly in many cases by overeating. There is no correspondence between muscle mass and losing weight. Finally lifting weights will not stop the natural aging process of your body.

Lies from Terri Walsh:

From Terri Walsh

Knock Out A Fitness Plateau

If your workouts aren’t having an effect on your body anymore, you might have reached a fitness plateau. This happens when your body gets used to its exercise routine and workouts become too easy. The secret to busting out of a plateau is switch up your workouts to keep your body guessing. Change your resistance, your speed or the amount of time you’re doing to keep getting results. Watch

Truths:

A fitness plateau just means that you are exercising the same amount of time each day or whenever you exercise. To get out of a fitness plateau you have to increase the time which you exercise or increase the resistance on your machines. The truth is that you shouldn’t be using resistance machines in the first place unless you are a body builder but should stick with natural body movement exercises.

Lies from Terri Walsh:

From Terri Walsh

Go Heavier On The Weights

You’ve incorporated weight training into your workout — great job! But routinely raising the amount of pounds you lift will reap even more benefits. As a general rule of thumb, once you can do 15 reps of an exercise without resting, you should increase the weights. Women, go up 5 to 10 pounds; men can increase by 15 to 20 pounds. Watch

Truths:

You are not a body builder so you don’t have to lift heavier weights. Why should you? Do you want to be strong enough to lift 90 pound bags of concrete mix onto your shoulders? Most people don’t need extra strength in their lives or at work.

Lies from Terri Walsh:

From Terri Walsh

Sleep More To Burn Belly Fat

Fat burning and muscle repair happen at bedtime. If you’re not getting enough sleep, your body isn’t functioning as well as it can. Additionally, when you’re sleep deprived, your body releases cortisol, a hormone that increases ab fat deposits — yes, the dreaded lower belly fat.

Truths:

Cortisol is a hormone which circulates through the entire body and is not just responsible for ab fat deposits or belly fat which should not be feared or dreaded because depositing fat throughout your body is a natural reaction to overeating if you are susceptible to weight gain in the first place. There are plenty of skinny people laughing at the myths which pervade the mythological industry of weight losing amongst people who are naturally fat to begin with. Skinny people eat boatloads of fats and carbohydrates and proteins and never get fat. Change your diet to a healthy one and live with your naturally plump body.
