People want that fast track to “fit,” but there’s a price to pay for tricking your body into losing weight, since tricks sometimes involve losing water weight and just postponing bad food habits. There is no fast track to losing weight, but there is a permanent way to achieve and maintain your ideal body weight. The first and most important step involves eliminating three major poisons that are commonly found in today’s “Big Food” industry — yes it’s your turn to turn the tables on Big Food and perhaps your big gut or “chunky” thighs, or maybe you’ve just got some “junk in the trunk” that you want to drop off. Let’s talk about the top three realms of FDA-approved carcinogens and why they drive so many people into obesity and compounded health misery.
MSG is GMO
MSG is short for “monosodium glutamate,” which is a highly concentrated sodium additive produced by genetically modified bacteria. The flavor enhancer is often associated with migraine headaches, vomiting and… wait for it… weight gain. One of the world’s most widely used food additives, MSG was engineered to manipulate the central nervous system of humans, including deregulating hormones. That’s right; this excitotoxin, as it has been described by scientists and nutritionists, pushes people to eat larger helpings! Oops. Too much soy sauce? Too much BBQ sauce or buffalo sauce? Too much Chick-Fil-A this week? That spicy KFC deep-fat-fried “original” recipe will get you every time. Addicted to Doritos or Cup-O-Soup? What’s that concentrated salt that’s interfering with your signaling systems in your brain and making you nauseous? Guess who (Big Food) is regulating your appetite (junk science addiction)? Eating just 5 grams a day of MSG could put you 30 percent more “at risk” of becoming overweight, according to a comprehensive study done in 2011.
Aspartame deranges your metabolism
Artificial sweeteners are the Trojan horses of the food industry and will invade your cells, causing mutation and oxygen deprivation. Aspartame contains chemicals that increase your fat storage. Imagine that. This interferes with insulin and leptin, which control how your “fat” is handled, including whether it is stored, HOW it’s stored, WHERE and then, of course, how it is utilized. Metabolism literally becomes DERANGED by aspartame, causing people to pack on pounds, the exact opposite of why they ever chose an artificial sweetener in the first place. Aspartame may have no calories, but weight loss is about a lot more than calories! You can get fat easily when you’re hungry all the time, even after you just ate. That’s aspartame. It prevents you from knowing that you’ve eaten enough, a skill that Mother Nature gave us at birth.
Gluten is glue-food stuff
Carcinogenic gluten remains stuck in your digestive tract for days or even weeks, turning to poison and ruining your gut flora. GMO studies reveal that 18 million Americans suffer from gluten and GMO toxicity. You yourself right now may be wondering how your digestive tract got so screwed up. Chronic health conditions don’t just happen. You’ve become chronically “unwell,” and research shows that it’s in your control. Gluten is robbing you of essential nutrients. If your digestive system can’t function effectively, you’re welcoming chronic conditions. The overuse of antibiotics could be adding to your “gluten intolerance.” Antibacterial hand wipes and doctors’ prescriptions of antibiotics can kill your good bacteria that’s almost already wiped out by gluten, especially bleached gluten.
This poor daily diet of conventional and bleached bread, pasta, rice and cereal could be driving your chronic infections, by actually stimulating bacteria, fungi and viruses. This all contributes to malabsorption of vital vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Add in some food intolerances, allergies and GMOs and you’re calling your Obamacare (sick-care) “specialist” to double check your co-pays.
Fact: Having healthy gut bacteria is key to finding and maintaining your ideal weight. It’s time to burn some fat and rejuvenate your enzymes! It’s time to supplement your energy with superfood and herbal tinctures. It’s time to take that extra weight off for good and look fantastic for the rest of your life.
