raw-milk-arrestGreg Dahlen lost weight by drinking only skim milk with a little cream added. Well what is cream but milk fat so there is probably no need to take out the fat in whole milk in the first place. My recommendation is that you drink raw milk and not pasturized milk which destroys some vital nutrients in milk. You can regulate the number of calories that you consume on a daily basis by drinking less or more milk and the natural fat in milk will satiate you and you will probably not over drink or over eat  and feel hungry afterwards.

Babies survive on raw breast milk and thrive and ancient Chinese emperor children used to drink breast milk or raw milk up until the age of about 13 and didn’t have weight problems. Greg Dahlen is a weight loss success but a fanatic and I see no reason why you couldn’t include some fish, blood sausages, organic fruits and vegetables, and even meat once in a while. The Masai in Africa survive on a diet of raw milk, blood, and meat and do not have weight problems. The key is to eliminate artificially added sugars in your diet and too many high calorie carbohydrates which cause weight gain in many humans who overeat.

Raw milk alone will restore a healthy balance in your body which is needed for good health and if you have diabetes or heart disease then switching to a raw milk diet with no sugar is a very smart thing to do.

Yes, raw milk is not easily available to most humans so including some organic fruits and vegetables once a week in the diet is recommended and you can drink pasturized whole milk the rest of the week.

Here is a Ted.com talk on restoring a healthy balance of nutrients in your life but it is still a very complicated approach and may not work for you. He argues that too much fat is unhealthy but the milk fat is not unhealthy because it is the natural balance of nature for all mammals.

Yes, you can include occasional veggies and fruits in your raw milk diet but you don’t have to fear adding a little blood or meat to your diet once in a while either.

It is a great myth that you have to exercise in a gym with artificial machines to get optimal health benefits and lose weight. Exercising using natural body movements to tone your body is all that you really need to stay healthy and no amount of exercise will make you lose weight permanently. 


Only a starvation diet will make you lose weight and who realistically wants to starve themselves on a permanent basis? All weight loss programs without starving don’t work permanently so why be disappointed every time and waste much of your time trying to do the impossible current weight loss fad.


For all the lazy exercisers walking fast about 20 minutes about three times a week is all that you need. This is a rather boring routine so you can make your exercise sessions more interesting by doing an assortment of natural body movements which stretch your body or even give you a cardiovascular workout.


For a cario workout try jumping jacks and make them more interesting by leaping high as you do them or by flexing your knees or body torso as you are doing them. Running in place or jumping as high as you can is an excellent workout which you can do in the house, especially when it is raining or terribly hot or cold outdoors.


Pushups, rotating arms, deep knee bends, stomach curls, squat thrusts, toe touching while standing,  standing on one leg, head nodding, and stepping up and down on a stool will exercise your arms, legs, stomach, and neck.


If you want to ritualize the exercise then try yoga positions and Pilate’s moves.


If you are a senior citizen, can barely stand, and have joint stiffness then repetitively flex your arms, legs, neck, and body from a sitting or lying down position.



Save a boatload of time and money by not going to a gym but doing exercise in and around the home. Tone your body with natural body movements and you will be healthier for it. You will not lose any weight exercising but you will be healthier at the weight which you are currently at.


Remember, no exercise will make you lose weight but exercising will improve your mental and physical health and that is really the realistic benefit which you should be looking for in your life of good habits to do.

Society is infested with bogus or untrue health claims and some even claim to have doctor testimonials or “proven” scientific backing.

If you read about one diet, one food, a nutrition supplement, a pill, or a drug which will help you to lose weight permanently, improve your mind, make you live longer, make you more attractive or beautiful, make you ripped, make your skin healthier, cure geriatric illnesses, and protect you against heart disease or cancer then don’t believe a word of it. It is a bogus untrue claim even if a doctor or scientist claims it is true.

There is no one magic thing that will make you healthier. Only eating a large variety of certified organic food as much as possible in moderation and getting in a little moderate exercise about three times a week will optimize your health unless you have a genetic predisposition to illness. Depart too much from eating moderately and healthily without any exercise and your health will suffer sooner if not later in your life. Stay away from modern sugary overly processed foods as much as possible and try to eat food as close to its natural state as possible.

All doctors, scientists, and nutritionists know much less about food and health than mother nature!!!!!! The latest food fad or miracle cure for weight loss or guaranteed healthy living is a myth and nothing more designed to part you with your hard earned money and common sense which you should conscientiously guard.

This is not a complete list by any means but here are 7 reasons a scientific claim or any claim for that matter is probably bogus or untrue. The link to the article follows.

MYTH: Eating or not eating breakfast badly affects your health or weight loss:

If you eat no breakfast at all or eat breakfast then it will not be bad for your health and you will not lose any weight. It is more likely that you will take in more calories during the day by eating more than one meal. More calories consumed at two or more meals means that it will become impossible to lose any weight since you are not severely reducing caloric intake which is the only sure fire way of losing weight .

Every time that you eat you are taking in more calories so if you are on a starvation diet to lose weight then skip as many meals as you can and even fast to some extent by not eating anything for a day or two once in a while during your weight loss routine.

STARVATION DIETS are the ONLY way to lose weight and you will lose weight temporarily but you will gain it all back when you resume normal eating habits and stop calorie counting.

MYTH: Eating many small meals a day instead of one big one will help you lose weight:

Only total caloric intake affects starvation diet weight loss and it doesn’t matter whether you eat six small meals a day or one meal a day with the same total amount of daily calories.


MYTH: Eat only carbohydrates, only proteins, or only fats to lose weight:

Eating an unnatural unbalanced diet with an emphasis on one lopsided food nutrient such as carbohydrates is very unhealthy and dangerous to a balanced metabolism. You will not lose any weight if you are eating more calories than those which a starvation diet requires. If you succeed in losing weight on a lopsided starvation diet of processed carbohydrates then you will be harming your health and metabolism because you also need nutrients which protein and fat foods provide.

MYTH:  Weight loss pills will help you to lose weight permanently:

Artificial hunger suppressing drugs will help to get you on a starvation diet and you will lose weight temporarily but you will gain it all back when you stop using the drug and resume normal eating habits. In fact the artificial drug will have serious metabolic bad side effects on your health if you use it too long or on a permanent basis.

Some people think that diet supplement pills with natural nutrients or ingredients such as vitamin D will help you lose weight. Untrue, because only a starvation caloric intake will cause you to lose weight and if you are eating a normal amount of calories then no magic supplement pill will burn off more calories than you want or need in your body.

MYTH: Eating saturated fat is unhealthy for you:

People who live in Tokelau (a territory of New Zealand) eat a diet that is about 50% saturated fats and they have superior cardiovascular health compared to other people. The key here is eating good natural food fat and not very unhealthy processed hydrogenated fat used in modern processed foods.

MYTH: Fasting is hazardous to your health:

Not eating for one or two days does not cleanse your body of toxins and improve the functioning of any internal organ. On a cellular level called autophagy it helps your body’s ability to regenerate and become better at reducing toxins in the cell.

If you go to extremes and fast for a week or a month then a little nutrition or drinking a little milk during fasting is helpful to prevent irreversible metabolic damage to your organism. Extreme fasting if done improperly for too long can lead to unhealthy consequences for the body metabolism.

MYTH: Going organic will help weight loss:

Eating natural organic food or processed food will not help you lose weight. Only a starvation diet will help you lose weight whether you are eating organic or processed and modified food.

MYTH: Exercise will help you lose weight:

Exercise will only make you feel hungry again and you will gain back all the calories which you lost exercising by eating again. You will even be exceeding the caloric intake which is needed to merely replenish the calories lost during exercise.

MYTH: Eliminating one food or an assortment of foods will help you lose weight:

If you eliminate one or more foods from your diet you will still get enough calories from other foods which you do eat and you will lose no weight. Switching to a vegetarian diet will not cause you to lose weight because you will eat enough vegies to make your daily body calorie requirements adequate for maintaining a stable weight without any weight loss at all.

MYTH: Everyone gains the same amount of weight by overeating:

By overeating by 1000 calories individuals varied in weight gain by 10 to 30 pounds so every individual is different in the amount of weight which they gain by overeating.

MYTH: Eating a big dinner meal is bad for your health and affects your weight.

Only if you compulsively overeat will it cause weight increase but will not badly affect your health in the long duration if you do not become severely obese. If you only eat one big dinner meal a day then you will not gain weight abnormally because the caloric intake is not that great.

The kind or type of food that you eat affects weight gain more than the amount of food that you eat. If you are eating large amounts of highly processed carbohydrates and sugar then you will be fatter than if you eat large amounts of balanced food with naturally balanced fats, protein, and carbohydrates from natural organic food.

CONCLUSION: If you want to truly lose weight for health or other reasons then counting calories and going on a starvation diet is the only temporary way of doing it with the help of a nutritionist or professional calorie counter.

It is important during that starvation diet that you eat a healthy variety of organic or natural foods balanced with carbohydrates, proteins, and fats which you get by eating everything in moderation or a wide variety of food which you should consume to assure that you are getting proper or balanced nutrition.

Once you reach your desired weight you will still have to painfully count calories and determine how many you will need to maintain a constant reduced weight.

Some people are born naturally skinny or plump and the easiest way to deal with it is to not diet at all but to eat healthily with a large variety of natural organic food. 

Let your weight stabilize at what your natural inherited weight is. You may not be happy with your overweight which nature gave you but at least you will be happy eating to your heart’s content as much as you want of the quality food which you should be eating on a daily basis.

****There is no magic pill, or magic supplement, or magic food which will help you to lose weight. When you eat has nothing to do with weight loss. Only a starvation diet will cause true weight loss and it is a difficult and stressful experience which only desperately overweight people should be going through. All others should be happy and healthy with their natural weight which differs from individual to individual as nature intended it to be.

Remember, you look the way you look because nature intended you to look that way and trying to fight nature will just cause much failure and emotional suffering and misery.

LIE: You will lose 5 to 10 pounds a week.

TRUTH: There are about 3500 calories in a pound of fat. It would take you one week to lose 1 pound of fat if you went on a starvation diet and ate nothing for a week because most of us can survive losing no weight on 500 calories a day. You can go on a dangerous month’s fast and eat nothing at all and you are only guaranteed to lose about 4 pounds of weight. The only way to lose a pound of weight in one day is to dehydrate your body and lose one pound of water in a day!!!!!!

LIE: You can treat yourself and eat anything you want in moderation and lose weight.

TRUTH: This misleads you into thinking that you won’t have to give up any of the eating pleasures in your life. It lies that you can eat the bad large calorie good tasting foods. Even if you ate half or one third the amount you frequently eat you will still not lose weight.

LIE: All you need to do is take a weight loss pill or a food supplement which suppresses your appetite.

TRUTH: If your appetite is suppressed and you go on a starvation diet you will lose some weight but in the long duration you will gain it all back.  Appetite suppression chemicals are dangerous to your metabolism if used for too long and when you get off them for health reasons you may even gain more weight than what you started out with because the body is expecting more starvation in the future and is adjusting by storing more fat cells. It also increases the chances that you will be starving on a diet of bad nutrition foods which you are used to eating and this will damage your health in the long duration.

LIE: A before and after picture is shown as proof that you will lose weight.

TRUTH: The humans in the pictures lost weight using a different weight reduction program which is not the easy one advertised.

CONCLUSION: There is no fast way to lose weight and not have any bad side effects on your health. Over 50% of humans were programmed genetically to be on the plump side sooner or later so even if you only eat about 500 calories a day you will still not lose weight.

You can lose weight under the supervision of a nutritionist who knows what they are doing and will be counting calories for you. You can lose weight slowly and surely by eating a healthy variety of food and being on a semi starvation diet until you reach your desired weight. Then you have to adjust or stabilize your calorie intake so you don’t gain it all back. The process requires an almost inhuman discipline to overcome hunger pangs and the temptation to eat something delicious and satisfying.

If you must lose weight because of bad health and a fear of imminent death then you may be motivated enough to seek nutritional professional help.  Someone will supervise your weight reduction program for a fee. Permanent weight reduction is possible but your diet will be different and the amount of food that you consume will be drastically reduced. Eating will probably no longer be a great pleasure in your life.
