Nothing beats this for weight loss…

There is a sucker born every minute. Buy my crystals! Have these pills! So many promises… Such lacking results.

Our TV is full of these:

“Buy this abdominal cruncher to get rid of the belly!” – If you haven’t guessed, you cannot spot-reduce fat.

“Take these amazing pills with TWO FULL GLASSES OF WATER!” – Yeah, the weight loss, if any, will come from filling your belly with water and being unable to eat as much.

“This weight loss bracelet will make you lighter!” – from your wallet…

Often the word “natural” will be attached to make it sound more plausible and true. Drowning is “natural” and so is Cyanide and both will quickly kill us. The amount of nonsense you can hear at the gym or in the media goes on and on.

Beware of fitness buzzwords like:

  • antioxidants
  • biological
  • cleanse
  • detox
  • gluten-free
  • natural
  • non-gmo
  • organic
  • superfood
  • toxins

Quoting straight from “Eat Bad”:

“Let me put it plain and simple… Nothing here is what it seems. If you eat too many chickens, you don’t grow feathers. If you eat foods with high cholesterol, you don’t collapse from a blocked esophagus. If you eat sugar, you don’t become a lollipop. Then, why would you think If you eat fat you become obese?”

Just food for thought!

Why are we always hungry in 2018?

Dietary guidelines are saying charming, self-qualifying, words like ‘eat a balanced healthy diet’. Can you see it? It’s a contradiction!   You can’t have a healthy diet if you are eating the same quantities from all food groups. There is no ‘balance’! It’s isn’t healthy, and the number of obese and diabetic clearly show this.  

  Type 2 diabetes was a disease for people over the age of 65 just 50 years ago. Now, even children are getting diabetes before their teenage years. My sources are Dr Robert Lustig, and this is discussed at length in ‘Eat Bad’ from many converging angles.   We have a huge nutrition problem today, and it doesn’t just affect the sedentary population.

The first pages of Chapter II – The Dreaded Exercise…

Another sample from the book. This time, the first pages from Chapter II…

Chapter II

The dreaded exercise

 “Start wide, expand further, and never look back.”
– Arnold Schwarzenegger

Exercising your options...

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to spend 2 to 3 hours at the gym. Nor do you need to do aerobic exercise for an hour or more. You can if you want, and done properly it can be very healthy.The ideal weight training session should be shorter than 30 to 45 minutes. Any higher than that and your cortisol levels rise too much and your body will start eating your muscles for energy.

The first pages from the first Chapter of ‘Eat Bad’…

Continuing from yesterday, I’m posting more from the book…

Chapter I

Understanding Nutrition
And The Body

 

Happy is the one who knows the causes of things
in Georgics (c. 37BC), Virgil


Let’s diet!

Right. Where to begin? Diet? “I’m on a diet.” – Yep, 100% of the humans, animals, insects, and even plants are on a diet.

From Wikipedia: “Diet (nutrition), the sum of the food consumed by an organism or group”

Most people use this word in a phrase like: “I’m on a diet.”

The intended meaning: “I’ll do this thing for a short while, and then go back to stuffing my mouth full of cake, just like always!”

Dieting on the other hand is the deliberate selection and restriction of food in order to promote weight loss. And this is done incorrectly by the majority of people resulting in health complications.

Everyone seems to want their relief in a pill. Well, let me spare you years of trial and error and give you a wide embracing summary of the science of fad diets: THEY DON’T WORK!

The first pages of the book “Eat Bad”…

 The text below are the first pages from ‘Eat Bad’…

Welcome!

We know what we are,
but know not what we may be”
William Shakespeare

This guide started its life on the 25th of October of 2010 as an email I sent to a work colleague who wanted help to lose some of the extra blubber he was carrying around the midsection. Shortly after, other requests for help ensued and this text grew into a “part two”, and even a “part three”. Now it has grown many parts over.

We’ll spend most of our time focusing on nutrition, food, and chocolate mousse. Exercise will be more of a side note at the end.

In this journey we are going to tackle myths, learn cheat codes, smash misconceptions, and expand our horizons. Be ready for discovery.

The ‘Upside Down’ of losing weight…


Anyone who has tried to lose weight has noticed how quickly it returns once we stop dieting. We see this pattern many times over… Anyone who has tried to lose weight has noticed how quickly it returns once we stop dieting. We see this pattern many times over…

Most weight loss programs will cause an initial reduction in weight that bears ever diminishing results, and then we give up. Within a short period we regain the weight back, and immediately end up heavier than what we started while still eating less.

Finally published…

That’s right. Seven years in the making, over 500 kilos of chocolate consumed, and presto!

To lose weight you need to be a rebel. You can eat a ‘healthy balanced diet’ and do what everyone else does OR you can learn that most of the advice on losing weight misses the mark. Here’s a sample from the first chapter…
