Nuts aren’t like processed snacks that are designed to be easily eaten as they do require some degree of chewing to crush them into pieces small enough for us to swallow.
While pure peanut and nut butters are listed as a healthy additions to a wholesome diet, as we have mentioned previously, there is something to be said about the mechanics of chewing to help us get the most benefits out of eating nuts. One of the most important, if not the most important aspects of any diet is sustainability, as results can only occur if you are consistently able to adhere to an energy reduced diet.[23,24] Weight loss regimes that center only around bland and unpalatable foods are always doomed to eventual failure as we are by nature designed to enjoy the foods we eat.
Add to these five important weight loss factors, the bad cholesterol (LDL) lowering effects of nuts and it is clear that nuts should indeed be an integral part of any diet designed for optimal health and weight management.

Due to the fact that I am working on my last three weeks of the semester while my husband is on a business trip,A I have decided to re-post articles worthy of being passed along.
For those who are not familiar with the name,A Paul Bergner is the director of the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, Colorado whichA offers introductory, advanced, and clinical training in medical herbalism and clinical nutrition in the vitalist tradition. For those interested in more information,A please check out the websites above you will find a wealth of information.
The process for making HFCS is to chemically strip the sugars off of the starch in corn, freeing them up.A The process of making of agave nectar is similar (this is not agave sap), but the sugars are chemically stripped off of inulin starch, inulin being a fructo-oligosaccharide, having fructose as the dominant sugar in the chain, so the agave nectar might be 80-90% free fructose instead of 55% like the HFCS in soft drinks. I like to think that my childhood was unique but honestly there are a great number of folk out there who grew up in a very similar manner to me.
There is a point to all of this.A Herbalism is newer to me than the natural family living. I honestly am not sure of the answers but I thought I would throw the question out there as it is rumbling around in the back of my brain.A What have you been thinking about today?
Nutrition plays a vital role in a healthy nervous system but before you even think about what foods to eat, you should look at your eating patterns.A A Are you skipping meals while taking in large amounts of stimulants or sugars? B Vitamins are also important to a healthy nervous system but it is important to note that there is too much of a good thing.A Taking large doses of B vitamins (specifically B12)A can lead to anxiety attacks and panic disorders.
As I examined the packets, I continued to like what I was reading and is there ever there a lot to read.A These might be the most informative seed packets I have ever run across! All-in-all it seems like a good company and I plan on spending a good share of my gardening budget at their website. A lot of herbalists talk of using herbal infusions to support your body during and illness or perhaps as an alternative to a nutritional supplement in the form of a nourishing infusion. They are quite useful; I have been making herbal preparations, for years now,A with good results. You don’t hear many of them mentioningA spaghetti sauce as an decoction although the acidic base of tomato sauce is wonderful for drawing minerals out of foods. Keep in mind I am not talking about the watered-down, additive-laden prepared foodstuff you buy at the the megamarket.A A I am talking of preparations you make yourself. I don’t remember exactly when it occurred to me that soups and broths are really just giant pots of herbal goodness.
I realized that I don’t know that I ever have put our spaghetti sauce recipe on the blog, so I though I would use it here as an example of the herb to food ratio that is health-producing. Beverages don’t have to be the boring preparations many people think of as medicinal infusions, either. There is an added benefit of incorporating these beverages into your daily diet.A I have experimented with many different ways to get little ones to eat their herbs.
I also dona€™t like using them from a sustainability standpoint.A I dona€™t want my well-being to be dependent on any industry and it would be rather hypocritical of me to talk a good game about local sustainable food systems when half my nutrients are arriving on a boat from China. For the next couple of weeks, I am going to post about different ways eating and cooking with herbs can help to improve your health. Dietary fat is an essential nutrient rounding out protein and carbohydrates to maintain a healthy diet and body.
Seeing as though fat is an essential part of a healthy body, then why are we so quick to eliminate something that we need to survive? Your MUFAs and PUFA’s are traditionally liquid at room temperature and found in foods that come from plants and fatty fish.
Salome Rivera MS, CDN, CNS is a licensed Clinical Nutritionist who’s own experience with fitness and nutrition led her to turn this passion into a career.
Also, you would be surprised that even if you work out a lot, you won’t see good results without first fixing your diet. Read Labels and Eat Fewer Ingredients – Check the ingredients, usually the ones listed first make up most of the food product. Eat Several Smaller Meals or Only Eat When You’re Hungry – The smaller portions make you full enough to not overeat and your body has an easier time digesting. Note: For some time, I counted calories and tracked my meals, but that just turns obsessive and I don’t think it’s good for you to eat based on the numbers you see on the calorie counter. Identifying which foods contain these things can be confusing, however in this article, there are several charts which list the best weight gaining foods to eat on top (superior), followed by good, inferior and no-no. Include in your diet high protein foods such as fish (tuna and salmon), whey protein powder (for post workout shakes and inbetween meals), chicken and turkey breasts, low fat milk, high carbohydrate foods such as pasta, lots of fruit and veg such as avocado and banana, as well as good fats such as olive oil and flaxseed oil. This is Muhammad Rahim from Afghanistan, I want to be like the WWE superstar Dave Bautista, as Bautista has height, weight, muscle, and power.
Hi i used to weigh 12 stone but then started to eat regular as suggested along with the aid of protein shakes (promass) and i have managed to get to nearly 14 stone at the moment. Peanut butter is listed as a no-no in the chart because most of the calories come from fat, and the same is true for all nuts. I also want to add that along with GOMAD I read that peanut butter (nuts in general) pasta, eggs, fish, whey and bananas are good foods to gain weight.
As to the suggestions given in the article, I have increased my food consumption by eating lots of fruit and nuts between meals, but to my astonishment I have actually lost weight. Increase your calore intake by eating high energy foods like nuts , cheese, butter, bananas, dates, shakes , potatos, etc.
This kinda sucks cause I’ve always been athletic and exercising (especially cardio) is something I absolutely cannot take out of my life. I’m 62, have always weighed the same 115 then all hell broke loose the end of 2009, my husband got cancer.
If you are new here, you need to watch this video to better understand the basic principles of gaining weight. No food alone could ever cause us to lose weight, there is no such thing as the best single weight loss food. The phrase, "negative calorie food", as highlighted in negative calorie diet programs and books, usually refers to foods that allegedly require more energy to digest than they contain.
However, there is actually no such thing as a negative calorie food, if your definition of negative calorie food is that more calories are required to digest, aborb and assimilate the food than are contained in the food.
You may notice that fruits and vegetables make up most negative calorie food lists, but protein foods have the highest thermic effect. Not only do lean proteins have the highest thermic effect, research has proven that proteins are the most satiating and they help suppress the appetite better than other foods. In this context, there is a grain of truth to the theory of negative calorie foods, but only if you're referring to the fact that some calories are burned in the digestive process, leaving a net calorie intake lower than the gross calories. Another possible interpretation of negative calorie foods is in the case of high fiber foods.
Certain foods such as low calorie fruits and especially fibrous and green vegetables, which are extremely low in calorie density, do not provide very many metabolizable calories and some of the calories are not absorbed.
For nutritional bang for your buck, you're actually better off choosing darker greens such as Romaine lettuce, spinach, collard greens, kale, arugula, swiss chard, mustard greens and turnip greens. When you look at various foods from this perspective you can see that eating more lean protein foods and more fruits and vegetables which have a high fiber content, may be more conducive to a fat loss program.

Tom Venuto is the author of the #1 best seller, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle: Fat Burning Secrets of the World's Best Bodybuilders and Fitness Models. All The Calories From Nuts Don’t CountHow Nuts Help You Lose Weight- 2.The More Nuts You Eat The Less You EatHow Nuts Help You Lose Weight- 3. Easier said than done for a mountain of reasons, but this concept of striving for a negative energy balance is nonetheless the key rationale behind most weight loss endeavors. Recently, nuts have been recognized as an invaluable source of health promoting and heart friendly nutrients such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, protein and fiber. The calorie values we use today are direct results from the work of Wilbur Atwater, arguably the father of nutritional sciences here in the United States.
Proteins contain high levels of nitrogen, which is not oxidized and instead is converted mostly into urea and excreted in urine. So assuming you needed 2,500 Calories to maintain your body weight and regularly ate let’s say 300 Calories above your metabolic requirements.
Chewing activates mechanical nutrient and sensory signaling systems that appear to significantly affect our appetite. This applies to many foods that are processed as well, since processing can remove some of the important properties of foods we have evolved to eat over the past several thousand years. Far too often we focus on the numbers- how many calories need to be consumed and what foods are best to reach that quota efficiently.
Nuts and their bioactive constituents: effects on serum lipids and other factors that affect disease risk. Comparison of weight-loss diets with different compositions of fat, protein, and carbohydrates.

This will lead into Skullcap’s specific indications and contra-indications illustrated with colorful case histories, as well as the ecology and specifics of a number of western Scutellaria spp. Many clients have compromised GI tracts from a fast food vegan or other extended elimination diets, protein deficiencies, or multiple nutritional deficiencies. California Hispanic herbalism differs from the Mexican or Tejano, or Southwest traditions due to the various native and foreign cultures which helped form it.
Special focus will be placed on of the body as a dynamic ecosystem instead of a battlefield. Jim and Kiva will explore the underlying elements of traditional western herbalism, including sense-based herbal energetics, primary herbal actions and ways of integrating these essential components into an effective healing practice. Join Jim McDonald in an exploration of the fundamental role of diaphoretics in immunity, and how they can be used to support and enhance the body’s vital response to infections from influenza to the common cold. Although Mercola is a little distasteful in his sensationalism, what he says in this case is true. Even though digestion of the disaccharide to the monosaccharides take some time and acts as a partial brake, because the extracted sugar is very concentrated, compared to eating a naturally sugary food, the glucose and fructose surge in the system.
A So it is with a little bit of bemusement that I watch the latest explosion of the back-to-the land movement because I really never left it.
A A I giggle when we make homemade macaroni & cheese to take someplace and it is viewed as some sort of accomplishment because in my family that is pretty standard fare. A IA suppose I started the path about fifteen years ago although I have only been studying seriously about six years (around the same time I started blogging). A How do we keep the message of the websites of today from being lost in a internet archive in the same way the poster above was lost in a file cabinet? Bring to a boil; then lower heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, until the broth is thick.
A I thought I might offer a bit of advice as to how to eat your way to a healthier nervous system.
The fun doesn’t stop on the outside though, so be quite careful when opening your first Botanical Interests seed packet. A My Trionfo Violetto Pole Beans outgrew and outproduced my Kentucky Wonder Beans.A A I think my Dwarf Blue KaleA might still be alive out there under the piles of snow.
You also don’t hear hot sauceA tossed around as an herbal preparation but these are both excellent examples of ways you can incorporate more herbs into your diet. A A It was probablyA have been shortly after Darian became a vegetarian and I made my first batch of homemade vegetable broth.A I know I definitely had a handle on it by the time I was making garlic broth to use in soups. While I am sure that in cases where a blood test has shown there to be a deficiency, supplements can be useful to catch the body up.A A I prefer to avoid the deficiency in the first place. A This is one of the reasons that I tend to focus on using herbs and foods that I can grow or wild-craft in my area. A When you dona€™t eat properly, your body does not find the nutrition in the food you eat, it will find the nutrients someplace in your body such as your bones, muscles or brain matter.A A This is especially true of protein which your body will leach from your muscles or brain matter and vitamins and calcium which your body will take from your bones. However, in years past and even today, fats have a bad reputation and are often eliminated when cutting back on our food intake.
Consuming foods that are sources of good fats have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, lower LDL cholesterol (the bad one), promote weight loss and weight management and reduce inflammation within the body. You can do all the weight training you want, but if your are not feeding your body the necessary food and nutrients it requires for maintenance and growth, then it will all be a waste of time, not to mention unhealthy.
I like how simplified these charts are because you can immediately identify what NOT to eat. What I found to be effective is increasing your meal frequency, trying to have 6 meals each day, but not eating as much per meal, making you feel hungrier throughout the day. When snacking it’s a great time to eat high calorie snacks such as dried fruits, seeds, nuts, low fat yogurt and cheese.
I weigh only 145 lbs what weight gaining foods can I eat and what kind of vitamins should I take?
I always do bodybuilding and i eat baked potatoes with yogurt but i sometimes eat boiled eggs with dates and honey, my weight was 55 KGS but now i am 65 KGS. As a plus it’s an economical way of eating protein, it tastes good, and can be easily added to your shakes. I am concerned that I may be eating the wrong foods–I know fruit is good for you and provides carbohydrates and sugars the body needs for energy, but I think my body is using these so quickly that theey are not contributing to my weight gain. I have one daughter that lives 300 miles away and then her dad got cancer at the same time. Weight loss is the result of the energy consumed from all various foods within the diet, and that a diet's total energy must be lower than the energy used by the body. Since the process of digestion requires the use of calories for energy, sometimes the net amount of metabolizable energy available from a food is less than the gross number of calories contained in the food. In reality, the energy required to digest the food is only a small percentage of the total calories. Part of the caloric energy in fiber cannot be used by the human body and is passed through the digestive tract unabsorbed. In that sense, like the thermic effect of food, you could say there is a "negative calorie" effect. Since we can't absorb the calories from this dietary fiber, this probably helps explain the origin of the myth that celery has negative calories. However, it is a myth that there are negative calorie foods which require more calories to digest than they contain. Tom is a lifetime natural bodybuilder and fat loss expert who achieved an astonishing ripped 3.7% body fat level without drugs or supplements. To that end, it makes sense to eliminate or restrict the intake of high calorie and high fat foods like nuts. Who created the caloric standards that we use today in the early years of the 20th century to measure the energy yield of our foods. Thus some of the calories found in protein foods cannot be absorbed by our bodies and Atwater’s calorie values take this into account.
If those calories came from regular foods you would, in accordance with the laws of thermodynamics see an increase in your body weight over time. The act of chewing (mastication) breaks the parenchymal cell walls of the nut and liberates some (but not all) of the fats and proteins they encase. Bear in mind that the human genome hasn’t changed much changed since the emergence of behaviorally modern humans some 150,000 years and so we are still genetically adapted to eat the foods consumed by our remote ancestors [17,18,19,20,21] and in their minimally processed or unprocessed forms as they have been eaten for countless generations. In so doing many experts in the field forget that long term compliance to an uneventful but calorically correct diet is unlikely for the overwhelming majority of the population. The ancestral human diet: what was it and should it be a paradigm for contemporary nutrition?
Paleolithic nutrition revisited: a twelve-year retrospective on its nature and implications. A randomized controlled trial of a moderate-fat, low-energy diet compared with a low fat, low-energy diet for weight loss in overweight adults.

Symptom pictures range from full-blown chronic fatigue symptoms to multiple food sensitivities and brain fog. Included are foundational elements of working with the whole person and the whole plant rather than isolating or compartmentalizing either human or herb. Special attention will be paid to the differentiation and use of diaphoretics that stimulate, relax or do both at once.

In nature typically in a piece of fruit, the sugar is a mixture of sucrose (glucose bound to fructose), free glucose, and free fructose.
The glucose enters the controlled glycolysis pathway, but the fructose bypasses it, and floods the Krebs cycle and the related fat-building pathway in large amounts, symbolically like a -flood- into those pathways below the control point in glycolysis.
A You need to eat enough to provide your body with the foods you need.A It is almost impossible to do this with two meals a day so your body begins to crave foods that will give it that quick energy fix. There is nothing quite so satisfying as a healing soup simmering away slowly on the stovetop, while the flavors and properties of the herbs flow gently into the food.
A Dona€™t fight with yourself (or your family) to entirely give up a questionable food substance, just dona€™t abuse your body with it and use the healthiest form of the substance possible. A A vast majority of health complaints in this country; fatigue, mental fogginess, depression, etca€¦ are caused by your bodies natural response to incomplete nutrition.
Let’s get to know why we need fat, the good fats from the bad ones, what they do for your health and what the ultimate good fat foods you should eat are.
Therefore, as part of a healthy diet the majority of your daily fat intake should be from good fat foods.
So to turn that around, over the course of February until now, I have been trying out “clean eating”. It’s not a short term crash diet or cleanse, and the focus isn’t to lost weight, but to develop a lifestyle and maintain more permanent results through good habits and self-discipline. Don’t fear fat because by eating it, it actually helps balance out your mental health, heart, cholesterol, and even weight. You just need to worry about knowing which proteins, carbohydrates, and fats to eat, otherwise known as good proteins, good carbs, and good fats. Having less fatty foods will also be of great benefit as fats tend to make you feel fuller more quickly, so you eat less.
You should be looking to incorporate all of these weight gain foods in your diet if you want to gain weight. Then I stopped the very active and crazy busy exercise schedule and slowly started dropping weight. Some brands are high in sugars, so it would be best to avoid those and go with one of the natural brands. I have such a high metabolism and live a highly active lifestyle that I am burning off the calories faster than I can consume them.
I got loads of crap from doctors, weight gain supplements, shakes all that and still no change. In a protein food like a chicken breast, if a serving contained 200 calories, 30% or 60 calories may be required for the process of digestion. The truth of the matter is that celery doesn't contain much of anything - it's very low in nutrients and calories. I find that by adding celery into some of my recipes, it adds crunch and gives a meal more bulk, so you feel fuller on less calories. A logical step since it would appear to be all too easy to go over your daily calorie limits by eating several handfuls of these tasty but high energy snacks.
Some of the nutritional concepts behind why nuts don’t contribute significantly to weight gain can seem to be somewhat involved and are seldom fully explained in the media.
These values are well known by most with any familiarity with nutrition: Proteins and carbohydrates are estimated to have 4 Calories per gram, while fat, which is higher in energy yield has 9 Calories per gram. That’s why the calorie estimates for protein foods are set at 4 Calories per gram and not 5.65 as it measures the biologically available calories. However, if those extra calories came from eating nuts you wouldn’t gain weight since all the listed calories from nuts don’t count.
These nutrients promote the release of appetite related peptide hormones in the intestines such as cholecystokinin (CKK) and glucagon-like protein 1 (GLP-1) which in turn increases our feeling of satiety and prompts us to eat less.[18-20] Anyone who appreciates eating nuts can also attest to the fireworks that seem to go off in your mouth when you eat them.
That being said, for optimal weight management it is always wise to eat foods like nuts in as natural a form as possible- and while eating shelled nuts may be more convenient, it is a better practice to eat nuts that are still in their shells.
Studies have shown, however that including nuts as a staple in weight loss diets increases long term adherence and augments overall weight loss.[25,26] It makes perfect sense since having nuts in your diet allows for a tasty and calorie rich food while watching your calories otherwise. This article reviews basic nutrition on essential fatty acids and various possible garden sources of healthy dietary fat.
It will draw heavily from my 5 years working at a mixed modality (conventional and holistic) free clinic in my hometown as well as other places I have volunteered. Humans have no natural mechanism to deal with this, so the liver does 3 things, start making a lot of of fat and, if chronic, increasing the enzymes that manufacture fat, reduce the production of ATP via the Krebs cycle, and become resistant to the effects of insulin which would otherwise tell the liver to stop releasing glucose into the system. A A EvenA though that changed a bit when my parents moved us to town, my family hung on to a great deal of that lifestyle. Unfortunately in our society,A candy bars and coffee are far more available than a leafy green salad or a whole-grain snack.A You have to plan a bit more to provide yourself with healthy alternative but it is completely worth the effort. And although too much of something is never good, we shouldn’t be too quick to demonize fat.
When we are working out intensely, sugar stores are used up rapidly and burning fat for fuel carries us to the finish line. Knowing the good fats from the bad ones and the foods they can be found in is important for a healthy body.
Whereas trans fats are found in packaged foods, think baked goods, cookies, crackers, some breads, margarines, fast and fried foods. I don’t know how to define it, but I found this lovely bit of information from The Gracious Pantry that defines it wonderfully.
So before you go for the pantry, drink some water and wait a couple of minutes to decide whether you’re craving food or you’re actually just thirsty. Salt is good in moderation because of the iodine needed to maintain your thyroid, but not excessively in processed foods.
In a nutshell, your weight gaining diet should include high protein foods, high carbohydrate foods and healthy fats. I have always loaded peanut butter on my PB&J sandwiches, because I have always thought it was beneficial for muscle and weight gain.
Two large stalks of celery contain only 20 calories, with 1 gram of protein, 2 grams of carbs and no fat. However, that does NOT mean it takes more calories to digest the celery than the celery contains. However reviews of all the studies on the matter clearly demonstrate that in this case you can indeed have your cake and eat it as they say. That being said, here are five of the ways that nuts can help you lose weight- attributes that hold true for all varieties of nuts. A corrective estimate is added to calorie values to compensate not just for proteins, but for all foods, as our digestive system never uses 100% of any food that we consume. Apparently the sensory properties from the taste of nuts stimulates our salivary glands, digestive system and increases metabolism. Perhaps as a way our body prepares to get the most out of the nutrients it can derive from the foods we eat. The form in which nuts are available is a very real factor in regards to our overall appetites, as the extra preparation time required slows down our rates of consumption. A much needed break that serves not only to reduce the cravings for unhealthy high calorie snacks, but also increases the likelihood that you will stay on your diet. Foods that have been part of our diet as human beings for millennia- and in a form that is as raw an unprocessed as possible. A large piece of this class will be devoted to answering attendeea€™s practical questions about their personal situations and how they can bring their skills forward. If we would fill our bellies with fruit we would still only get a relatively small amount of free fructose. Current scientific A thinking on the adverse metabolic effects of sugar, the cluster of diseases that appear when the sugar trade emerges in a region, is that the overfeeding of the fructose pathway and the resulting consequences are responsible for the insulin resistance and obesity. Most of it seems much like sucrose, 45 percent glucose and 55 percent fructose, not all that different.
A Once you address your eating patterns, you can begin to look at the nutrients your body needs to properly support your nervous system. Bee pollen is an amazing nutrient which I should devote a whole blog entry to, but I do worry about our dwindling bee population and the availability of this nutrient.A A Consequently,A I use it sparingly and with a great deal of respect for the creatures who created it in mind. Good fats are known as the MUFA’s (monounsaturated fats) and the PUFA’s (polyunsaturated fats, this includes omega 3’s as well).
All the words that sound scientific like the glycerides, dextroses, maltodextrin etc., probably means it’s bad for you. However they don’t necessarily tell the whole story, especially where nuts and plant proteins are concerned. Thus any calories contained in undigested particles don’t count towards our overall energy intake and this is accounted for in the calorie values of most foods to give an accurate assessment of how much energy our body can obtain by consuming them. A rather controlled clinical study found that chewing almonds 25 times (which is the average number for most people who eat almonds without trying to choke) elicits the strongest reduction in hunger and increased feeling of fullness two hours after eating, compared to chewing 10 or 40 times. Which leads us to believe there is no need to exaggerate chewing in order to reap the appetite suppressing attributes of nuts since regular chewing seems to do the trick. That it takes longer to eat nuts when they must be first removed from their shells increases the metabolic signals of satiety- which can thus reduce the amount of calories we consume in a sitting. An invaluable side effect for anyone trying to control their eating habits. If we digest starch that has fructose in the chain of sugars in the starch, that is really slow. The problem is that in HFCS, the fructose is -free- it does not have to be split from sucrose, and is not bound to fiber. Additionally, fat contributes to healthy brain development, healthy skin and hair, cell membrane health and insulation of organs.
In addition, consuming these fats lead to heart disease, high cholesterol and clog arteries. So, other than that I guess I am just going to have to keep eating my fruit, but also increase my milk consumption and add more high caloric foods and amount of them at each individual sitting. And ya just keeping this thing in your consideration that, i can not spend time for any type of exercise and i am vegetarian only. I think by that point I was eating a sandwich a day and did not look at myself,taking care of husband and the surgery which takes months to get in.Now I weigh 95 and no appetite and trying ti gain weight, can anybody help me, thank Ann. A somewhat puzzling and counter-intuitive happenstance but in this article we will take a look at the mechanisms behind this phenomenon and explore five ways that eating nuts can help you lose weight and stay on track with your diet. It might be a surprise to some to learn that according to Atwater’s measurements, most protein foods have a true calorie yield of 5.65 Calories per gram. The result is that in the Krebs Cycle, the entrance of glucose into the cycle is highly regulated by enzymes, when ATP is adequate to high, if forms a brake on the glycolysis pathway, but fructose, on the one hand, enters the cycle one step below the control point. As part of a healthy diet, saturated fats should be consumed conservatively and trans fats avoided altogether. I’m actually so devoted to this that I’m going to plan something out with a nutritionist, I’ve revamped my fridge and pantry, and my parents have learned to add weirder items onto the grocery list. Historically, anthropologically, evolutionarily, we didn’t need to evolve a control on the fructose metabolic pathway.
A few years ago, the lead article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition proposed the introduction of unbound liquid fructose into the food supply as -the- cause of the epidemic of obesity and diabetes that began to manifest around 1980 and continues to expand today.A Free liquid fructose appears to be benign or even beneficial because there is no spike of glucose, or even of insulin after ingesting it.
It’s wonderful and it also annoys them, but the mindset gets the whole family into healthy mode. If the natural pathway for glycolysis is like water rushing down a white water canyon, with a dam at the bottom to prevent flooding, the natural fructose pathway is like a small stream that enters -below- the dam with no control on it. There is instead a spike of fat in the form of triglycerides, but no one notices that (only fasting TG are even measured in routine lab tests). And as the liver adapts to habitual use of sugar or fructose, -then- insulin resistance is increased and insulin and glucose rise to higher levels than before and the individual becomes pre- or full blown diabetic.
