2011 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,300 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

All About Sweeteners


Hello all!

Well, in honor of Sugar Addiction Awareness Day, I have joined a chorus of voices who are speaking on sugar and its dangers. On this blog, I decided to discuss sugar as well as other various sweeteners. I just wanted to give you all a bit of information on these. It seems to me that many people are confused by them.

Also, just at the end of this blog, I am including information about how to get help to get off of sugar. These are just some suggestions, but there are plenty out there! I hope that you will take this information seriously. I firmly believe that sugar is addictive and should be out of the diet!

One more thing: Usually, I post all references in the blogs and go into great detail, but it has been a really hectic month, and today is no exception. I will try to post another blog on this at some point, and include all the references, but I wanted to post this today because it is Sugar Addiction Awareness Day! I hope you enjoy it!

It's not just sucrose you should look out for too!

Sucrose: This sweetener is known as table sugar to most. A molecule made up of glucose and fructose, it is a disaccharide (one of four chemical groupings of carbohydrates. The others are monosaccharide, oligosaccharide, and polysaccharide). There are, in my opinion, many issues with sugar. It does have a relatively high glycemic index of 64. This means it is quick to cause response in blood sugar in the body. When consumed, sucrose processes into glucose in the body. Sucrose is one of the sugars that can cause issues such as tooth decay, diabetes, obesity, and gout. Along with other carbohydrates, sucrose may well be one of the products we should definitely avoid!

Agave Nectar: Agave is actually more harmful for the health than HFCS. It has a more concentrated level of fructose in it. Agave has 70-90% refined fructose in it. Compare that to the 55% refined fructose in sodas. It is almost all sugar and refined.

HFCS: Leads to obesity by tricking the body into not releasing fat regulators insulin and leptin. Fructose, and in particular HFCS, increases blood pressure, triglycerides, and small dense LDLs. It also depletes the body of vitamins and minerals. HFCS seems to have been a factor that would lead to cardiovascular disease, cancer, liver disease, arthritis, and gout.

Xylitol: A sugar alcohol that has been touted as healthy. It kills bacteria in the mouth. It can cause gas and other intestinal upsets.

Honey: This is high in fructose. It has a glycemic index rating of 62. The positive about it is that if it is local, it could contain some allergy fighting pollens in your area. It does spike blood sugar.

Maple Syrup: Less fructose in this than in honey. It is safer in small doses.

Fructose is metabolized in the body differently than glucose. 100% of break-down of fructose relies on the liver. Compare that to 20% break-down for glucose. Fructose is turned into free fatty acids and stored as fat in the body. Compare that to the fact that glucose can be used by the body before storage. Fatty acids accumulate in the liver as fat droplets. This causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and insulin resistance. This leads to T2DM and obesity.

Sugar can cause kidney stone formation. Sugar depletes the body of magnesium and B6, which makes it more likely to form kidney stones.

Sweet N Low, Nutrasweet, and Equal: These are both Aspartame. 200 times sweeter than sugar. Causes fatigue, headaches, diarrhea, depression, insomnia, and memory problems. Is a neurotoxin. Toxic to the brain. You can kill ants with aspartame. Symptoms of using Aspartame can mimic MS.

Splenda: Sucralose. 600 times sweeter than sugar. Made by chemically altering it and adding chlorine to sugar to change the structure of the molecule. Side effects: Skin rashes, joint pain, heart palpitations, and sinus problems. Use of Splenda reduces the beneficial bacteria in the intestine and digestive system so the nutrients can’t be broken down for proper digestion.

95% of people drinking diet soda are at greater risk for metabolic syndrome.

Stevia: 400 times sweeter than sugar and the best choice. Natural leaf that does not spike blood sugar. Good to go.

Eurithrotol and Maltitol: Known as sugar alcohols, these are similar to Xylitol. Each sugar alcohol has a different scale of glycemic load and calorie count. They can be intestinally upsetting.

Picky Eaters: Can I Get Them to Eat?


Greetings friends!

Lately, I have seen many questions regarding how to get picky eaters around them to eat new foods or foods the picky eater refuses to touch. Well, I can tell you that I do have my own personal experience with this. I suspect my own wonderful husband is a ‘super-taster’ (meaning, essentially, extra taste buds on the tongue), so he tends to be a pretty picky eater! Since this is a hot question, I thought I’d do a blog post that included tips for introducing new varieties to those picky eaters in our lives! I’m also going to give some possible explanations into reasons for picky eating!

First, let’s talk about reasons some may be picky eaters. This will not cover the entire spectrum of reasons (there could be any number of them out there, for we are all individuals in our own rights), but it could help narrow down possibilities that would help get friends and families adjusted to new foods!

1. Super-tasters: As I mentioned about my husband, one reason for picky eating could be that the person is a super-taster. These are people who are generally much more sensitive to bitter tastes and fattiness in foods (a.k.a.: umami taste) (Vacca Foeda, 2010). To explain a bit more, most researchers believe in the ability of the tongue to have 5 basic tastes. These are:

a. Bitter

b. Salty

c. Sour

d. Sweet

e. Umami (fatty/savory) (Ikeda, K. shortened by Ogiwara, Y, & Ninomiya, Y, 2002)

Super-tasters tend to be especially sensitive to foods that are considered bitter or umami (Wikipedia.org, 2011). These would be things such as coffee, dark chocolate, broccoli, fat on meats, or meat broths. Such people may often not want to eat these and other bitter or umami-tasting foods. I don’t have any citations for this next piece, but I have also heard that super-tasters may also enjoy the sweet tastes, and be more partial to bland and sweet foods (although, there have been other reports and opinions on this). So as not to make a whole blog out of this, I have included some various references at the end of this blog that will give you more information on this subject, as well as sources for testing and understanding super-tasters.

2. Autism and Neurological Dysfunction: This one was pointed out by one of my IPMG friends. She stated that scrawny and picky might be one sign of Autism (this includes Aspbergers). Since texture has a big part in such dysfunctions, there could be a chance of these being the issue. Check out this test and site for more on this: http://school.familyeducation.com/learning-disabilities/behavior/56323.html

3. Food Intolerance and Allergies: Sometimes people do not realize that there might be a food intolerance or allergy in someone who does not like certain foods. This could be particularly true of wheat, dairy, or other common allergenic foods. In this case, you might try getting a full spectrum allergy test done. Another good way of determining this would be to ask the person whether these foods hurt him or her when he or she eats them. If so, allow that person to avoid them, and work with some of the alternatives I will list in the sections below. This might be especially positive when it comes to some of those foods we do not realize are toxic to most people.

4. Neophobia: This is a fear of the unknown or new. Often characterized in children after the age of 2 (a common time of weaning off of breast-feeding in many traditions), neophobia can manifest as picky eating at any age, really. A person with this issue could either not want to try new foods or just flat-out deny them (Wickford, 2011). It is almost like a fight or flight response for many. The idea is that these foods are unfamiliar therefore, may not be safe (Bainbridge, n. d.). Some experts in psychology believe that neophobia can manifest due to frightening or unpleasant situations regarding food as well (Wickford, 2011). Others believe that the cause can be both genetic and environmental (Wickford, 2011).

5. Growth: Many people see picky eating in the pre-teen and teen years. This is a common response of growth, in both physical and mental capacities. If this is the case, the person may only choose to eat foods that are comfortable or ‘cool’ to eat. In this case, it may just take working with the person to find reasoning and sensibility for why such foods are desired and what could be done to add in new foods.

6. Texture: Texture is often an issue for many picky eaters. Many of us might remember disliking certain foods at different times in our lives. While texture is very common in neurological dysfunctions (see above), it can also be a standard personal issue. I remember hating mushrooms as a youth. I also remember my brother hated tomatoes. Now, I enjoy many varieties of mushrooms (although the first time I decided to try them as I got older, I do remember being squeamish at the texture…but I got over it). I’m not sure if my brother does tomatoes or not now, but I have heard that these two foods are common dislikes of picky eaters.

7. Check the Gut: Some people tend to avoid foods because they may have bad experiences digestive-wise with them. This could be a sign of leaky gut or other intestinal/gut issues. One important thing to do in this case is talk to the picky eater about how this food makes him or her feel. Another is to get the picky eater tested. You can do that through the mail from Entero Labs here: http://www.enterolab.com/Default.aspx or at a lab near you!

So, what can you do if you have a picky eater? I think the first step is to find out why the person might be avoiding certain foods or just eating others. Once this determination is made, here are some suggestions.

If you know that your picky eater has no allergies or other health problems regarding foods, you can help him or her begin to try new foods. I would still recommend avoiding wheat (see references to Dr. William Davis’ Wheat Belly book for more on this) and other foods with anti-nutrients (legumes, other grains). Otherwise, here are some common ways to help a picky eater not be so picky (and if the picky eater is scrawny, adding these suggestions into the diet might help grow the body as well):

1. Try sauteing veggies: By sauteing things, commonly the texture and taste will change. You can even saute in real butter and preferable spices to help the veggies take on the flavor of the butter and spices. You can also saute the veggies in bacon fat or grease. This adds a nice flavor and gives them necessary added fat. Just DON’T use those nasty hydrogenated seed or vegetable oils. Those are highly processed garbage. They take away the nutrition of the meal!

2. Add Bacon or other fatty, good meats: This also adds to the flavor of veggies and adds the required good fats to the meal. You can saute, steam, boil, or bake veggies and add the browned or cooked up meats to them during or after making (during is the best for more flavor, in my opinion).

3. Try “hiding” the veggies within the tasty foods: For example, you could make a meatloaf (sans wheat, please) and add spinach in it. This can mask the flavor and/or texture of the added ingredient. You can also puree various foods into other foods so that they won’t be noticed. This is commonly done for stuff like liver or other organ meats (a food many people are not a fan of, but one that is one of the top nutritious foods we can eat).

5. Roast the food: This can go for veggies and meat. You can roast it with lots of butter or other good fats. It can change the flavor and texture of veggies and meats completely!

6. Wrap other foods in bacon: Many people love bacon, and it is good for you. Try utilizing that! You can wrap all kinds of foods in bacon and grill them or bake them to tastiness!

7. Link foods to interests: This one mainly applies to kids, but you can make various foods into shapes via cookie cutters. This could be meat, veggies, or both. Sometimes, the idea of playing with the food might be okay (as long as you don’t buy the processed garbage and you don’t do it with every food, I think this is fine).

8. Give it time: Sometimes you just have to give it time. As palates change, a taste for different foods and a lack of desire for other foods might occur. Tastes change as we change our eating styles. When one is used to thinking ‘crap’ tastes good, the real foods might not be so palatable…this WILL change. It’s essentially a re-training of the taste-buds (in the mouth and in the gut)!

9. Make it together: Sometimes inclusion really helps people open up to new foods. If a child or other picky eater is asked to be involved in the process, it might get the juices flowing (in the mouth as well as in the head)! You might find that by including the picky eater in the preparation, that person will feel more interested and proud in the partaking of the meal as well!

I hope that many of you can use some of the above information and suggestions. In the references below, I am including some sites with great, healthy recipes that might be good to introduce to picky eaters!

Until next time, have a healthy day!

Rachel

A Brief Reference to Great Information for the Thyroid…


Hi all,

I was going to do an in depth post on thyroid issues because many have been asking me about them, but during my research I realized that there is one person out there that I should lead you to instead: Chris Kresser. I have to tell you, Chris is amazing! He has such a detailed understanding and wonderful explanation of the common questions regarding thyroid issues.After reading all of his thyroid posts, I decided to give you the link to all of his articles on it instead of trying to rehash it. He does such an excellent job that I think it is important that you all check it out. Once you do that, we could discuss more if you would like. Just comment and let me know! Here is the MUST READ by Chris Kresser:

http://chriskresser.com/thyroid

Just keep clicking all the links on the bottom of the post to keep learning more! As you do, let me know if you have questions!

I will do a deeper post on this if it is not enough to read his…Just let me know that too!

Thanks and have a healthy day!

A Healthy Lifestyle Choice Vs. Melina Bars…CNN got it WRONG with this “Expert!


Melina Bars are the terrible, processed food offered by a CNN "expert"! Don't fall for it!

Hello Everyone,

Well, as has previously happened, the Paleo “diet” has landed in a health “news” article. This time the culprit was Dr. Melina Jampolis on CNN Health. In a sad case of SAD diet advice (most likely bought and paid for), the “Is the Paleo diet healthy” article run on CNN Health and discussed by “expert” Dr. Melina Jampolis not only missed the mark…it made no sense! Yes, I am a Paleo lifestyler. I believe in the Paleo/Primal ways of life. What these are might be a bit different per person, but they are generally backed by science…basic science such as endocrinology, biochemistry, anatomy, and physiology. It only takes one trip into these sciences to realize the basics: food affects the body in a variety of ways, the body is a complicated place, and there is a lot to understanding how the external affects the internal. One thing seems for sure to me: eating REAL, WHOLE, UNPROCESSED foods in a fashion that satisfies and fulfills much of the body is much healthier than eating some processed crap created by chemists in labs or buying such things from so-called experts who offer their own SAD brands and prescribe poor advice along with their expensive services!

Where is all of this coming from and where is it headed, you might ask. Good questions! As I said earlier, there was an article in CNN Health written by this so-called “expert.” It wasn’t as much of an article as it was an “expert” answer to an important question. The basic gist of it was that the girl writing in was obese and trying to lose weight. She wanted to know if the Paleo diet was a healthy lifestyle change “despite the promotion of saturated fat and cholesterol.” The response was incredibly sickening to many people, including me. In fact, not only was this Dr. Melina Jampolis’ response mis-guided, but it was also closed-minded and confusing. This CNN “expert started out answering the question by applauding the questioner for staying away from “fad diets.” While the Paleo lifestyle has gained momentum recently, I wouldn’t say that it is a “fad diet.” How can a way of eating that is based on the body’s needs throughout history be a “fad”? How can eating for optimal growth, as has been successful in our evolutionary past be a “fad”? How exactly can eating as history and science have shown us works well for human beings be a “fad”? I see a problem here. By definition, a fad is ” a practice or interest followed for a time with exaggerated zeal; craze” (Merriam-Webster Incorporated,  2011), and the definition of a fad diet is “a weight loss diet that becomes very popular (often quickly) and then may fall out of favor (sometimes just as quickly)” (Everydiet.org, 2004). What is the problem when calling Paleo a “fad”? Well, Paleo is short for Paleolithic, which is an era that consists of a long period of time. It is a period of human pre-history beginning at least 2.6 million years ago and continuing up to at least the development of agriculture c. 10,000 BC (Conjecture Corporation, 2003-2011). The idea behind the Paleo lifestyle (considered a “fad diet” by this so-called CNN expert) is that we humans have evolved from these ancestors. This evolution created a system of processes in the body that were designed to help us survive…and survive we have. For thousands of years we survived by moving specific ways, eating a variety of natural foods, and growing our bodies through such processes. With the advent of industry within agriculture, we began to notice problems. Health issues became more prevalent. At the time we may not have understood the processes of the body or the reasons these things were beginning to crop up; however, history shows us that something happened to cause more problems. The subject of just what has been hotly debated, but, to me, one thing is certain: illness shows up when processing and toxins used as foods show up. Science of the body shows that many people tend to have problems with certain foods and so-called foods. More disease and chronic illness occurs now than ever before…and it is on the rise. We no longer, as a society, promote eating as our ancestors ate. Our society tends to support money before it promotes healthy living. Well, I have seen the other side, folks, and I can tell you that our Paleolithic ancestors seem to me to have the right idea…eat whole, real, unprocessed foods. Eliminate those things that just aren’t viable or reasonable in the human system. That includes grains and legumes, in my opinion. Why is this? Well, have you ever tried to just pick a piece of wheat or a bean and eat it right there? I have, and I can tell you that I couldn’t even keep it in my mouth without having issues, let alone imagine what it would do inside my body. Now, have you ever picked something like lettuce or eaten raw meat? Again, I have, and it was much more palatable. I could see it being feasible food for my ancestors.

But, I digress…

On to more of this CNN article and this so-called “expert” who has chosen to ignore the science and confuse people.

Dr. Melina Jampolis goes on to tell this person information that was obviously not researched well at all. She seems to believe that the Paleo lifestyle is a high-protein diet that excludes several foods. Yes, the Paleo community generally does promote avoiding grains, legumes, processed foods (including processed oils), and potatoes. My problem with her response here is that she got it wrong in two places. It is not high-protein and it does not necessarily exclude sweet potatoes (which she states in parentheses in her response). If you are a reader of my blog, you might know that I am a fan of raw dairy for some and that I do occasionally eat a sweet potato. I have no problem with these things as long as they do not appear to be food sensitivities to the person consuming them. Also, you will realize that I do not promote high-protein; rather, I feel a Paleo lifestyle is more about eating whole, unprocessed, real foods and not fearing the good fats! That is the key. Fat from avocados, coconuts, animal sources, and olives are not unhealthy fats and they will not make you fat…body sciences show this well. So, this “expert” got her message mixed up, possibly because she did not fully research the lifestyle before attacking in her response.

I do have to give this woman a bit of credit for stating that sugar and refined grains can cause obesity and a host of other issues. Kudos for putting that in, as many other “experts” would not even go that far. But, with that said, I think she screwed up terribly with her cons and overall response.

In her cons, she states that typical OLD and WASHED UP response about saturated fat and cholesterol…further propagating the false “wisdom” put forth just 40 or 50 years ago due to money and fear. If the research an “expert” relies on is outdated, the advice may well be too…and we see that here. There have been any number of studies regarding the falsity of the saturated fat and cholesterol myths (for more, do a search on this blog for these subjects or visit any number of research sites such as Pubmed or others referenced throughout my many blog posts). The outdated response relating these foods to cancer and other diseases shows how much this “expert” researches on her own. So, basically, you can see from her response that Dr. Melina Jampolis does not tend to research well for her responses. I certainly wouldn’t want a doctor telling me how to live if she doesn’t continue to learn through her life, would you?

So, this CNN “expert” has already proven herself as a person who does not do her research, subscribes to old ideas, and keeps the population in the dark and unhealthy. She has told this person who needs help to avoid a lifestyle that encourages eating REAL, WHOLE, UNPROCESSED foods, and she even adds that one of the reasons this should be avoided is because it is expensive! Are you kidding me?! Last time I checked being unhealthy and having to go to the doctor who prescribes medications for symptoms that one would have to take for life because the lifestyle was not fixed is EXTREMELY expensive! Hmm, pay a cent or two more for grass-fed and pastured meats and eggs and organic veggies from local farms and ranches (hence also supporting my own neighborhood) or eat crap and pay a rich doctor to get richer while I get sicker…which option would I recommend? That answer is obvious…I choose my health…I choose my community….I choose happy animals with good lives…I choose freedom from drugs and disease.

Finally, I need to bring your attention to something one more time. I have said before that we need to follow the money with our choices and beliefs. This is no different. Sometimes you may not realize that these “experts” recruited by corporations and media sources often have another agenda. Rather than being proponents for your health, they are more proponents for their own pocketbooks. Dr. Melina Jampolis is no different. This lady actually sells her own terrible version of protein bars. I have to say, these bars have a long, strange ingredient list. They are definitely not made of whole, real, healthy foods. Some of the things in them don’t make sense as ingredients for a “healthy” bar. The above picture is a screen-shot of these bars. I have highlighted strange things in these ingredients. These are certainly questionable in my book! They are things that show me that this “expert” does have an agenda in her responses…and that agenda does not include healthy living for you!

One final thought: In trying to debate openly with this “expert” through the CNN blog, my comments were denied. I was blocked by her on Facebook, as were many of my healthy living advocates in the Paleo community. Even those who gave her research links were put down and denied by her. Someone that is not open to debate, research, and conversation with those whose opinions differ is not someone I would want as my “expert” or doctor, would you?

Dr. Melina Jampolis and CNN, I have this to say: FAILEO! Start researching, listening, and learning with an open mind and health in mind rather than your own bottom line and then you can be called an expert! Until then, you are just a paid lackey for Big Agri, Big Business, Big Pharma, and Big Brother…I see you as not concerned about the health and well-being of mankind…and only concerned for the health of your own bank accounts!

Readers: BUYER BEWARE! Keep your life in mind! Remember to question and learn all you can…look at the science and consider the history. You will be healthy, wealthy, and wise for it!

Have a healthy day!

Rachel
