Some of the things you think you know that just aint
so (these myths are not true):
Eating Cholesterol does not increase your cholesterol
Salt does NOT cause High Blood Pressure
Eating Fat does NOT make you fat
All refined carbohydrates are hazardous to you
Artificial sweeteners of all kinds are not good for
All vitamins and supplements are NOT created equal
To Review eating healthy is as simple as eating Fresh
and Pure. And the next couple lessons will help you
be clear on what is fresh and pure, from what isn't.
First, Eating Cholesterol does not increase your cholesterol
The Medical professions current way of thinking around
cholesterol. They look and see lots of cholesterol in
the blood. So they scratch their head and say, well,
don't eat so much cholesterol then. If you eat less
cholesterol, you will not have as much in your blood.
Now, on the surface, it sounds good. But there are two
major flaws with their theory. The first one. It doesn't
work. I dare you to try and find someone whose cholesterol
significantly went down by eating less cholesterol.
You will be hard pressed to find someone. Even with
That brings in my favorite definition of insanity.
Doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a
different result. This is what the medical profession
has been doing for Years. Telling people to do the same
thing, with out really getting results, expecting to
get different results. It just doesn't work that way.
The Second flaw in their theory is this. The cholesterol
in your blood is not the same cholesterol in the food
you eat. Your body actually has to break down the cholesterol
in the food you eat, and then absorb the pieces of the
cholesterol. Then your body, if it wants to, has to
reassemble the pieces back into cholesterol you find
in your blood. And your body does not make cholesterol,
unless you need it.
The question is then why would you need cholesterol
in your blood?
Cholesterol's primary job is to carry glucose (sugar)
around the blood stream. You need an equal number of
cholesterol units as you have sugar molecules in your
blood. So if you have 3000 sugar molecules in your blood,
you need 3,000 cholesterol molecules to carry them.
The actual numbers are much, much higher than this,
but you get the point.
The more glucose or sugar molecules you have in your
blood, the more cholesterol you need to carry them.
So what affects your blood sugar levels? Mostly what
you eat. Refined Carbohydrates. When you eat refined
carbohydrates, the get digested and absorbed into the
blood stream very quickly. Your body then very quickly
converts the refined carbohydrates into glucose. This
causes a spike in your blood glucose levels. And if
you have a high amount of glucose in the blood, what
do you need again? That is right; you need lots of cholesterol
to carry those glucose guys around.
Your body is smart. It learns from the past. If you
are constantly having high amounts of glucose because
of the food you eat. Your body prepares for the next
time that you eat refined carbohydrates. It prepares
by having lots of cholesterol on reserves to deal with
the certain increase in glucose levels that are inevitably
going to happen.
So if you eat refined carbohydrates often (daily) your
body prepares by keeping lost of cholesterol on reserve
to deal with this. This is one of the biggest reasons
why so many people have high cholesterol levels. Your
body is smart, and it is preparing for the inevitable
of your blood glucose levels going way up from eating
Like I said, your body is smart. It is a very quick
learner. If you quit eating food that makes your blood
sugar levels high, your body will get rid of the excess
of cholesterol levels in your blood. That is why, often
with in weeks, your cholesterol levels drop significantly,
often 50 or 100 or more points, when you quit eating
Now, the trick comes with, what is "refined carbohydrates".
Refined carbohydrates are things that are mostly calories
from carbohydrates that have been refined from how they
are found in nature including most sugars. Great, what
does that mean? Things like breads, crackers, pastas,
sugar (in most forms), and grains are refined carbohydrates.
To safely, significantly lower your cholesterol level
with in weeks, quit eating refined carbohydrates. It
is that simple. And again, don't take my word for it.
Do it yourself, and measure your cholesterol levels
before and after, and you will see for yourself. If
you cut refined carbohydrates out completely, you will
often notice the 50-100 point drops with in weeks. If
you still eat refined carbohydrates, you will notice
a decrease, but not as quickly. And the amount your
cholesterol drops will be in direct proportion to how
much refined carbohydrates you quit eating. The less
you eat, the more it will drop. It really is that simple.
