Low Carb is High Dumb

Side observation: a chunk of land producing balanced protein from grains and legumes can support about 20 times as many people asrepparttar same land producing four legged meats. Oh, andrepparttar 131479 people getting most of their proteins and calories from plant sources are far less likely to have heart attacks, strokes, cancers, et cetera, thanrepparttar 131480 big meat eaters.

I have written elsewhere that selecting sensible foods means one never has to count calories. I'll go further and say that most carbohydrate restrictions are dumb.

Here arerepparttar 131481 only carbohydrate restrictions I recommend. • all refined sugars (cane, beet, high fructose corn syrup, sorghum molasses, maple syrup, etc.) • beer in large quantities • anything made from white flour, even if "enriched"

If you have a craving for sweets that you just can't break (which I don't belive), learn how fruits and nuts together can taste very sweet. Also,repparttar 131482 unsaturated fat inrepparttar 131483 nuts (or edible seeds, such as sunflower) will satisfy hunger with no risk torepparttar 131484 arteries. My favorite is raisins and almonds, perhaps with some fresh red delicious apple slices.

Pasta, preferably made from whole grains, is healthful, if not served with lots of cheese, oil, sauces which contain oil, sugar, cheese. Noodles with little meat is a main menu item inrepparttar 131485 Orient.

Oh, about carbohydrates in potatoes: they are harmless if you don't add butter, margarine, fat from frying, sour cream for topping, and other insults to a great food. People in parts of Central and South America eat little more than potatoes of traditional breeds.

Then as if this weren’t bad enough oncerepparttar food is harvested it is then refined and stripped of any remaining nutrients and then pumped with additives and preservatives. All of which have adverse effects on our health. Byrepparttar 131477 timerepparttar 131478 food makes it to your plate, it really is not even food anymore.

Eating a proper diet means eating organic food as much as possible. Eating foods that don’t have additives or preservatives, and eating foods that are in their natural state as much as possible. This means sticking with whole foods such as fresh meat, vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts and fruits. Use nuts and nut butters and seeds for snacks. For something sweet try some dates, bananas, raisins or other dried fruits. Try and avoid food that is in cans.

Eating healthy is one ofrepparttar 131479 most important factors one can address for improved health and optimal functioning. Many illnesses and symptoms can be eliminated or improved by eating a healthy, pure diet.
