Love Affair With Sugar

sugar200I’ve had a love affair with sugar from an early age. I would eat the little square sugar cubes on restaurant tables by the handful when we ate out for Sunday lunch. Then my parents gave me a cotton candy machine which I ran continuously. I classify myself as a recovering “sugarholic.”

When you consume processed sugar, you truly cannot taste “real food” and its’ natural sweetness. Marco Polo would give his wounded troops sugar so they could muster the strength for one last round in battle.

Set your mind to break your processed sugar addiction and use natural sources of sweetness instead like honey, maple syrup, stevia, coconut nectar, fruit, or chicory root. The desire for processed sugar will diminish!

Benefits of Butter

butter200Today I want to talk about the benefits of butter in your diet. Most people like adding butter to their foods. Of course, you cannot use butter in the restricted calorie phase of the HCG diet, but once you go into the maintenance phase, load up on the butter. Make sure of course, it is free from antibiotics and bovine growth hormone, and from grass fed cows when available. Hal Huggins, the famous biological dentist who has carried on Dr. Weston Price’s work, eats a quarter of a pound of butter a day. You do not absorb a nutrient unless a fat is attached to it. On a low fat diet, you starve to death. I was fortunate to be able to have dinner with Hal Huggins in Chicago about 4 years ago, and it was a special treat to be in the presence of such a true pioneer fighting for holistic dentistry.

Make food your solution, not your problem!

processedFocus on the small stuff in your diet for weight management! The micronutrients are essential for keeping the body strong, healthy, and in proper balance. There are 16 vitamins, 60 minerals, 3 essential fatty acids, and 12 essential amino acids that have been identified as essential.
Minerals come from the earth, so we are most deficient in these because of the poor condition of our soils today. Everyone would be hard pressed to have the correct balance of minerals today without daily supplementation. Empty calories are in foods where the micronutrients have been stripped away with just the calories left, which contributes to weight gain. Avoid foods in a box, can, or package to stop eating foods that cause a deficiency of micronutrients. Switch to nutrient packed food choices!

Make food your solution, not your problem!

Mineral Depletion

foodLiving in urban areas, we can’t do much about the condition of the soil in which our food is grown. I believe the nutrient-stripped soil is a consequence of ignoring the Biblical land Sabbath for generations. This depletion of the soil, and resulting mineral depletion in our food, has left most people with moderate to severe mineral depletion or imbalances. These imbalances, coupled with rampant toxicities, is at the root of the majority of our modern chronic diseases. Take steps today to find the best quality food you can, and supplement your diet with macro and micro minerals.
