I love the graph above. It illustrates why Americans are sick and obese.
The graph shows it in all its splendor. While people were reducing the amount of red meat, animal fat and dairy consumption – they were gorging on seed oils and refined carbohydrates. Seed oils (vegetable oil, canola oil, safflower oil, soybean oil, etc.) are BAD. BAD. BAD. STOP EATING THEM!!!
Refined carbohydrates are BAD! Stop eating them!
Eating any of these crap foods should be the exception – not the rule.
The US Dietary Guidelines need to be flushed down the toilet. I have no faith that the next iteration will be any better. Too much money invested by big food, big pharma and our industrial health care system to maintain the status quo. Why? Because the status quo is very lucrative.
See the above image. This is what the big money fears. Virta Health has REVERSED diabetes in 60% of their study participants. This is UNHEARD of for T2D. Imagine pharmaceuticals losing a significant portion of their sales because people no longer need their medications? Fewer hospitalizations. Fewer exercise injuries because you don’t have to kill yourself to stay fit and healthy. Fewer bariatric type surgeries. Fewer visits to the doctor. Fewer limb amputations. Fewer heart attacks. You get the picture.
How did Virta do it? A very low carb real food diet. It’s not complicated.
Get with the program.
