     The Glycemic Index (GI) is the measure of the amount and the rate of an increase in blood sugar after eating a carbohydrate. The higher the GI, the larger the rise in blood sugar, and the more insulin is released. Unfortunately the more insulin in your system, the more fat you'll retain. Eating 40-30-30 reduces your glycemic load.

SAD Standard American Diet, Yes it is sad, the diseases linked to our diet of French fries and burgers sodas and sugary foods is lengthy.

5 Foods to avoid at all costs:

1. Potato and corn chips/tortilla chips-- very high in trans fatty acids

2. Cookies/commercial pastries-high in  trans fatty acids, sugars, corn syrup and starches

3. French fries--filled with man made trans fats (the Food and Drug Administration has stated "there is NO safe level of trans fatty acid consumption

4. Sodas/Bottled teas/Diet sodas--High fructose corn syrup dramatically raises blood sugar and insulin and probably contributes to Type II Diabetes and insulin resistance and the Metabolic Syndrome which increases death from heart disease.

5. Fructose is also implicated in symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and Candida yeast infections.  Aspartame (Nutrasweet, Equal) in diet sodas may trigger seizures, asthma, neurological problems, immune disorders, migraines, and worsen the symptoms of ADD.  Studies link soda to osteoporosis, obesity and asthma.

Why is it so hard to knock the habit of eating junk food?  Some scientists believe that the chemicals added to these foods is addicting.  See the movie "Super size Me"

Chemical food colorings, preservatives, and MSG can cause allergic reactions, shock, seizures, headaches and migraines.

FACT -- One third of all cancers are linked to diet

FACT -- Except for deaths caused by iatrogenic (physician caused) the 5 leading causes of death in the US are "lifestyle" diseases related to habits of diet, lack of proper relaxation and lack of exercise.

FACT-- 90% of Americans diets are 'junk food'

What can I eat then?  Preparing your own food from scratch.

Nuts and seeds, nut butters
Avocado
Whole grains, Rice, Beans
Fermented foods like yogurt, kimchee, sauerkraut, pickles
Blueberries, Cranberries
Free Range Eggs
Organic Fruit and Vegetables
Natural, unprocessed protein, turkey, chicken, lamb, beef, bison, wild game, sardines




 Biblical Nutrition:
 A way to view food, nutrition, diet, and health that, allegedly, is as old as the world. The inferences that constitute the core of Biblical Nutrition are: (1) that God has ordained a perfect eating plan for humans, and (2) that eating the wrong foods can lead to unnecessary illnesses and premature death. The principles of Biblical Nutrition include: (a) that the more processed a food is, the less biblical it is; (b) that one should never add manmade chemicals to foods; (c) that all foods should be grown organically as much as possible; and (d) that one should strive to consume healthful foods named in the Bible.




 So what's a healthy diet?

Science shows that it is a varied diet of relatively unrefined foods with many fruits, veggies, brown rice and whole grains --precisely the foods that are getting scarce in many Western diets.
Tips for a healthy diet
Eat less fat (especially butter, coconut and palm oil, saturated or hydrogenated vegetable fats like Crisco, animal fats in meats, fats in dairy products).
Use nonstick vegetable oil cooking sprays instead of the oils.
Buy lean cuts of organic meat; reduce portion size to 3 ounces
Instead eat  fish, organic skinless chicken and turkey.
Try low-fat snacks (baked chips instead of fried; pretzels).
Buy sherbet or frozen low-fat yogurt instead of ice cream.
Avoid donuts and pastry, instead have Ezekiel 4:9 bread with nutbutter, honey and or whole fruit preserves.
Bake, broil, steam or grill foods instead of frying them.
Eat fewer "fast foods" (burgers, fried foods), which are high in fat.
Eat more fruits and vegetables.
Take care of these simple basics and according to some calculations, you'll prevent or postpone nearly 80% of heart and other serious diseases!


 An Urgent Wake-Up Call To All Consumers
Some of the most unthinkable tragedies in history are taking place at a tremendous expense to your health. Millions of people are in jeopardy and many we. Suffering and dying needlessly. The time has come to expose these deadly injustices, and provide you with immediate and concrete solutions. Anyone willing to carefully read, study, and ponder the facts presented throughout this news report, will awaken to the terrible stats of our situation and realize that our health has been put on a perilous course headed for immediate disaster. Interrelated common causes, most of which will become obvious even to the casual reader. The answers are relatively simple, yet a valiant new breed of advocate will be required to champion the cause because once trusted conventional institutions and agencies have become seriously corrupted by greed and power. As one of science's greatest unconventional thinkers so aptly admonished:

"Serious problems cannot be dealt with at the level of thinking that created them." .-Albert Einstein


 Public betrayed by medicine says medical authority

Dr. Joseph D. Beasley, M.D., a former Harvard University Administrator and Dean of the School of Public Health at Tulane University, exposed the
current medical system as seriously flawed. According to Dr. Beasley, the wonder drugs of the last century haven't worked as well as was thought.
Medical science has undeservedly taken credit for the health improvements of the last 100 years, when in fact, it was improved quality of life that
was responsible.

The general public has never been told by pharmaceutical  companies about the actual inexpensive and common sources of their drugs. Pharmaceutical companies have obscured the

lifesaving microbial and herbal components common to both plants and soil. Researchers for drug companies are constantly discovering wonderful natural substances, but little does the general public know that the original plant and: soil
sources worked far better and more effectively than the isolated synthetic counterparts patented by pharmaceutical companies.

According to Dr. Beasley, money and greed have tainted medicine and kept consumers from being told the truth,  in many cases, it is the medical establishment that is responsible for the betrayal of our health.
Beasley, JD, MD; The Betrayal of Health; 1991; Times Books.



 Missing link in food chain creates deadly imbalance

Our current health dilemma is comparable to a three-legged stool, with the well-known and familiar vitamins and minerals being two of the legs. Without the third leg, plant phytochemicals, this three-legged stool will not stand, upsetting nature's fragile balance. Phytochemicals stimulate the immune and hormonal systems, and are the missing link upsetting the entire food chain, which is manifest by serious and diverse health problems.

The inconceivable tragedy is that for many years the pharmaceutical companies have been  knowingly substituting the "third leg" in the form of very expensive synthetic drugs, versions of otherwise naturally occurring phytochemicals
created both by, microscopic soil-based plants (microbes) and higher plants, similarly, the huge agricultural   chemical   companies substitute chemical pesticides to resolve farmers' out-of balance crop problems. This all comes at a huge cost to consumers, both monetarily and in steadily failing health and upset to nature's balance.



 Unforeseen parallels indicate common causes for disease

Forward thinking scientists, medical doctors, and researchers worldwide are quickly discovering increases in human disease directly proportionate
to the decline in certain micro nutrients in our diets. These parallels are consistent with an especially serious decline in phytochemical (phyto means plant) nutrients and enzymes in agricultural- soils, crops, livestock feeds, and the human diet.

Billions of beneficial microbes, (-microscopic plants) once common to fertile soils are no longer found there because the nutrients they feed upon are not supplied to the soil, and they are killed by repeated applications of chemical fertilizers,
pesticides, and herbicides. Missing is the immense array of phytochemicals and enzymes -they release into the soil which travel up the food chain, being
added to, and built upon, by each successive host New advances in soil science are proving that many  phytochemicals  and  other  valuable micro nutrients actually originate in the soil, and are not produced nearly so abundantly in higher food plants as was earlier thought. Phytochemicals include plant hormones, plant antibiotics, anti-viral and anti-fungal compounds, plant antioxidants, and
a vast arsenal of other highly protective substances, most of which have not yet been discovered.. Anderson, M, Jensen, Dr Bernard, Empty Harvest, 1993

 Medical doctors depart from conventional medicine

Dr. Robert Atkins, M.D., a prominent leader in the movement toward nutrient therapies rather than conventional drug use, reports in his book, Vita-
Nutrient Solution, that the "company he keeps" includes "thousands of physicians and research scientists from the finest quarter of conventional medicine". These doctors have opted to treat their patients with nutritional supplements, and many
are abandoning their conventional prescription drug based therapies for natural vitamin and nutrient regimens that are proving to work much better. Throughout mainstream medicine, many doctors are becoming aware that there is something dreadfully wrong.  Old attitudes are eroding however, and an increasing number of doctors are beginning to wake up to the truth.

The Allans Center for Complementary Medicine is an eighty-staff,
six-stay medical facility in the heart of New York City, which treats a
wide variety of disorders.

 Incurable deadly diseases are fast becoming epidemic

Numerous incurable strains of deadly diseases are showing up in most countries of the world and have even infiltrated most states in the USA. Reports coming from global conferences of the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) continue to alert medical authorities to the serious risks.   It has been reported that large segments of the population have already been exposed, and that it is only a matter of time before many people will develop the
diseases.

Why some people come down with the deadly diseases, while others have immune systems that are resistant, still baffles medical researchers. Yet most worrisome is that immunity of the general population is rapidly diminishing. Some diseases have become resistant to antibiotics which makes them incurable, while other diseases never have had a cure. Some of the lethal and incurable forms of disease cited in reports include: Tuberculosis,
hepatitis, various forms of hemorrhagic fever including the ebola virus and hantavirus, and Aids which is caused by the HTV virus.
