Ask and it is Given: The Secret to Healthy Weight

To explain what was given I will quote the last paragraph of the last post I made…

In fact scientists should do some studies into the foods people ate and how much back in the 1950’s. Why was the average American so much thinner? They too enjoyed processed foods. Was the 1950’s Campbell’s Tomato Soup different from the 2010’s?

Later in the day, I started walking around and ended up taking the bus downtown. I got an unsweetened iced tea with half and half. I got a Wheat single patty pasture feed beef burger. In the very end, of my Pokemon Go hunt. I walked to a Spiritual/New Age bookstore. Something told me to look in the sale area at every single book until I found one that stood out to me.

One did stand out to me. It was written in 2012 and called “Why Woman Need Fat.” It answered my request exactly. The difference between 1950’s Campbell’s Soup and today’s is that today’s Soups likely contain Vegetable Oil or Vegetable Shortening. These unnatural foods replaced animal fat oils like lard because they were cheaper and easier to keep fresh.

American’s gained so much weight because companies campaigned to make them believe that Vegetable Oil was healthier than animal oils. They started buying food that tasted worse and had less natural fats because of this. Today’s American diet is much higher in Omega 6 than Omega 3, when a healthy ratio is an equal proportion of the two.

So it isn’t the carbohydrates that are making us fat or the fat. Now that I know the main culprit in our remarkable weight gain, I have another question to ask.

Is Gluten/Grain really that bad for us or does it cause us to gain weight because most Gluten products are processed in a way that adds Vegetable Oils from the Shortening?

Now that I know for sure that the problem isn’t carbohydrates and that Sugar tends to be safe if consumed with other foods. What about Gluten?

If you get the book you will read how they proved that Sugar is not the cause of American Weight Gain and how they proved that Carbohydrates also were not the cause. However, I am not sure I agree with the book’s claims that Canola Oil is healthy.

I soon found a website called Wellness Mama, that I have run across a few times in the past. She has reasons why Canola Oil is not healthy. She also is against most Grains.

  1. I’m always researching nutrition topics and trying to figure out my own annoying health issues – fatigue, candida, etc. It all gets very confusing and conflicting after a while. But one thing I did come across is that bread used to be baked with iodine, which is good for your thyroid. They began replacing this with bromine, which fools your body into thinking it is iodine and can mess up your thyroid function. Since you mentioned you were concerned about your thyroid I thought I would throw this out there. Maybe it’s another piece of the toxic gluten puzzle. It’s something else you might want to look into.
