The Food Conspiracy

The Food Conspiracy | Physical Education - The Nutrition Component | Scoop.it
The odds are stacked against you. It’s worse than betting against a casino. These giants have science and marketing on their side. It’s simply not a fair fight. If you’ve ever wondered why you feel tired all day, or why you can’t lose weight, it’s time that you got let in on a massive cabal that is conspiring against you. I’m talking about the food industry and every dirty trick that they use to get you to consume more and more of their poison. But don’t worry, it’s not just you. They are battling all of us, and I’ll show you how to fight back and regain your health. First, I want you to meet someone just like you. Several years ago, down here at my gym in South Carolina, I began working with a client named Renee. She was trying desperately to make healthy changes and came to me at her lowest moment in life. She needed to make healthier lifestyle choices

Amy Melendez's curator insight, January 30, 2:06 PM

From the article - 

The packaged food industry has done a brilliant job at tricking us. Thanks to advanced science – known as food chemistry – these corporations are creating products that are almost as addictive as tobacco. They are ready to Win At All Costs, even if it’s your life.

This Win At All Cost approach includes looking for new and innovative ways to hook their consumer by sneaking salt, sugar and fat into their food. It’s no wonder that obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease are at an all time high in America. What the food industry has done to so-called “food” is downright evil.

Anne Egros's curator insight, May 19, 7:31 AM

Eat well,  feel good and lose weight without being hungry = Reduce calories from refined carbohydrates. increase fibres and lean proteins

 

Not all calories are created the same.

 

Plan your meals not only based on calories but look also for foods with low glycemic index.

 

 What is the Glycemic Index?

 

 Carbohydrates are absorbed and transformed into glucose in the blood triggering the release of insulin, the hormone that makes the glucose available to the cells and tissues that make your muscles, heart,  brain or adipose tissue. 

 

The glycemic index (GI) describes the blood glucose levels obtained after eating carbohydrates. Choosing low GI carbs – the ones that produce only small fluctuations in our blood glucose and insulin levels – is the secret to long-term health reducing your risk of heart disease and diabetes and is the key to sustainable weight loss.

 

Carbohydrates made of simple sugars like fructose in fruit juices or starch in white pasta or rice are rapidly absorbed and produce a high peak of glucose and insulin increasing fat storage. 

 

Complex carbohydrates are found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and are absorbed slowly giving energy for one hour or so, more when combined with high content of fibers, Fibers are not digested by the body and help to slow the absorption of sugars and fats and lower the glycemic index,  that is why it is better to eat an orange fruit than an orange juice.

 

 Proteins are digested and produce amino acids that regulate the hunger signal sent to your brain so you will feel satisfied and less hungry for a longer period of time.

 

Proteins are found in eggs, milk products, fish, lean meats or legumes (vegetables that includes beans, peas and lentils).  Legumes can be a healthy substitute for meat.

It’s over. The debate is settled. It’s sugar, not fat, that causes heart attacks. Oops. Fifty years of doctors’ advice and government eating guidelines have been wrong. We’ve been told to swap eggs for Cheerios. But that recommendation is dead wrong. In fact, it’s very likely that this bad advice has killed millions of Americans. …
