Dietary Fat, Exercise, Protein Rich Diets the USDA Food Pyramid, and French Fries

I don't mean to be distrustful of health agencies but when they are basically run as a Monopoly (FDA, USDA, etc) then they are subject to being influenced through big money lobbyists putting pressure on congress. Look at the stranglehold the education lobby has on public education and you got to admit the public school system isn't turning out a bunch of geniuses. Congress in the early 20th Century saw how monopolies can be harmful and yet they don't see how some of their own agencies are run. Just something to consider the next time you're making a health decision.

Some diet and exercise surprises

French Fries are generally considered unhealthy, so which of the fast food fries has more fat and calories Burger King French Fries. This franchise makes some of the worst french fries you can buy at a fast food restaurant.They are even worse than McDonald's Super Size Fries. The salty coating allows more oil to be absorbed. A king size order of BK fries packs a punch with 590 calories and 30 grams of fat,12 of them artery clogging.

And here’s something that’ll probably surprise you –

Quaker 100% Natural Oats & Honey Granola would appear to be a health food, and yet a half cup of these is coated with three teaspoons of sugar and laden with more artery clogging fat than a McDonald's hamburger. Grape Nuts, Wheaties, Kellogg's All-Bran, Post 100% Bran, shredded wheat, or oatmeal are healthier choices.

A University of Illinois study shows that if you follow the USDA food guide pyramid guide of a higher-carbohydrate, lower-protein diet the effects of exercise are not as great as with a protein-rich diet. It is this blog editors opinion that the USDA food guide pyramid is not based entirely on health but also on what businesses they want to give a boost. For example the dairy industry, grain industry, etc. Do you really think with all the lobbyists throwing money around Washington that this guide is totally objective? Just a thought.

The study showed the protein-rich diet dramatically lowered triglycerides and had a statistically significant effect on trunk fat, both risk factors associated with heart disease. Exercise helped dieters lose an even greater percentage of body fat from the abdominal area.

The protein-rich diet works so well because it contains a high level of the amino acid leucine. Leucine, working together with insulin, helps stimulate protein synthesis in muscle. The extra protein reduces muscle loss while the low-carbohydrate component gives you low insulin, allowing you to burn fat, according to the study.

A lady speaks out about her weight control experience with goji juice!

I first knew Goji juice was amazing for weight control as I cooked and consumed every gooey treat over Christmas. Instead of the normal five-pound weight gain, I lost a pound. Then I had foot surgery and had no physical activity for four weeks. Extended inactivity plus good food always spells weight gain. But instead of the dreaded weight gain, I lost another pound! Goji juice is nothing short of miraculous for weight control, plus it tastes like a treat!
