We all have to eat to live. Ironically, what you eat could destroy your quality of life or even kill you. That is the extent to which our commercialized world is abusing even an essential commodity like food for the pure motive of profit.
Here are ten guidelines to show you how you, too, can fall into this deadly trap:
- Eat whatever you like while you are young – there is still plenty of time to rectify matters later in life.
- Replace home-cooked meals with take-a-ways and fast foods, especially those good-tasting refined and processed goodies.
- Chase after every new diet fad that hits the headlines.
- Eat foods that accelerate the inflammatory process: vegetable spread, margarine, fried foods – especially in restaurants; rancid oils, nuts or seeds. Abnormal inflammation caused by these foods will spread to areas in the body that were previously under attack. This will continue, even after the core problem has been solved. The cells release enzymes that could attack and destroy normal cells. When normal cells become inflamed, abnormality sets in which, in turn, causes disease. Examples are type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid fever, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma etc.
- Eat food that has been cooked in heated oil, especially if the oil is re-used.
- Avoid healthy fats, e.g. the two essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. Do this by not eating the oil-rich seeds and vegetable oils that are manufactured from these seeds. Also avoid leafy vegetables, seeds and nuts, vegetable oils, soya and canola, vegetables derived from seaweed and oily fish from the frigid waters (sardines, mackerel, herring, salmon).
- Eat carbohydrates that digest quickly, namely the types with a glycemic index in excess of 70. This includes bread, roast potatoes, chips and other snack-foods, cakes and sweetened drinks.
- Avoid carbohydrates with a low glycemic index, like whole grains, beans and other vegetables and non-tropical fruit (apples, pears, cherries).
- Eat animal protein every day, especially fatty meat, instead of vegetable protein – legume vegetables and fruit (beans, lentils), whole grain, seeds and nuts.
- Avoid vitamin and mineral supplements and the anti-oxidants in fruit and vegetables, in tea, dark chocolate, olive oil and herbs like ginger and turmeric.
