Survival Diet: Sugar causes heart attacks (yes, it does)

Image result for sugar heart attack

It is obvious enough, isn’t it? Staying healthy is essential for survival and nothing else is as strongly linked to health as our choice of fuel, whatever constitutes our diet.

With the right diet, your body works better, it repairs itself better and even your mind works better. One of the big problems with processed foods (among others, including pesticides, GMO, etc) is the addition of sugar. With moderation, sugar as found in fruit is cool, as found in Froot loops its not.

It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to understand why our brain craves sugar and how food companies figured out how to exploit that to maximize profit at the expense of our health. You can literally pick up horse manure, if you add enough sugar and some artificial flavouring you can wrap it up and sell it. Someone will buy it. And like it.

I firmly believe that if it wasn’t for the billions food companies pump into the medical establishment, we would know a lot more about the disastrous effects it has on our bodies.

If you think I’m nuts try this: One week without food with added sugar. Fruits yes, but no sodas, no junk food or even a teaspoon of the stuff in your coffee. Just one week and you’ll see for yourself how you can concentrate more and basically think better.

Survival Diet: Sugar causes heart attacks (yes, it does) — 1 Comment

  1. As a student of nutrition I appreciate this post. I read the linked article, and I’m a huge fan of Dr. Hyman, whose ideas have rung true for me. A 9/12/16 NY Times article indicates that in 1967 the Sugar Research Foundation, known today as the Sugar Association, paid three Harvard scientists the equivalent of about $50,000 to publish a paper downplaying sugar’s role in heart disease, while demonizing fat as the main culprit. We now know that sugar does much more harm than fat, as it raises triglycerides and leads to insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome. In the absence of carbs our bodies become adept at using fat for energy (it’s been said that the brain and heart run better on ketones, the energy produced from fat, than they do on glucose). We now know that the American government’s “low-fat” diet recommendations only fueled the diabetes and obesity epidemics. We can now enjoy those avocados, nuts & seeds, fatty fish, olive oil, coconut oil and fats from free-range animals (all healthy fats). Fish oil (& likewise algal oil) lowers triglycerides, thins the blood and reduces inflammation. Unlike carbs, fats provide lasting satiation. They help maintain healthy hormone levels and provide crucial nourishment to our brain and nervous system.
