Margarine And Vege Oils Do Not Help To Keep Weight Down - They Actually keep It On!
How Hydrogenated Oils Prevent Weight
Loss by Segoia
Despite the heavy regulation of food that's sold today,
there's still one very unhealthy chemical that seems to end up in almost
everything you eat—hydrogenated oils.
Hydrogenated oils have been linked to obesity in adults and children, heart
problems and high cholesterol levels. High consumption of hydrogenated oils can
also prevent weight loss or even cause weight gain.
What Is Hydrogenated Oil?
Hydrogenated oil and partially-hydrogenated oil contain
trans-fats. Over the past few years, news reports have popped up telling
consumers how dangerous trans-fats are, but hydrogenated oil continues to be
put in almost every processed food on the market.
Hydrogenated oil is bad for you because it is artificial—it does not exist at
all naturally. It's created when hydrogen is added to natural oils to extend
their shelf life. Those oils can then be used in processed foods to keep them
fresh and marketable for a longer amount of time.
How It Slows Weight Loss
There are several ways in which hydrogenated oil keeps you
from losing weight. One of its main dangers is that although it's artificial,
in certain ways it acts the same as healthy, natural oils in the body. Although
up space in the body that is allocated for healthy fats, they do not
do any of the same work as the good fats.
As a result, they stay in the
body longer and you end up with an excess of fat in your system. That excess
fat translates to body fat that you have a hard time losing.
Your body needs a certain amount of good fat in
order to go through its daily functions. These good fats are abundant in
natural foods like fish, eggs and nuts, but are very scarce in processed foods.
When you eat processed foods, you're taking in a huge amount of unhealthy
fats that your body doesn't need and starving it of the fats it does need.
You'll keep feeling hungry and continue eating until you feel full, which doesn't
happen until you've had all of the good fat you need. This continuous
eating can obviously lead to weight gain, especially when you're eating
unhealthy, processed foods.
Another way that hydrogenated oil slows weight loss is
by slowing your metabolism down. In most cases, hydrogenated or partially
hydrogenated oil is soybean oil. Soybean oil slows down your thyroid functions.
your thyroid affects both your energy levels and your metabolism, you'll
quickly notice that either you are losing weight very slowly or you are gaining
Avoiding Weight Gain and Helping Weight Loss
A long-term solution to regulating your weight loss and
avoiding excess weight gain is cutting out hydrogenated and partially
hydrogenated oils from your diet. Check the label of everything you buy and
strive to eat natural foods over processed foods. Cutting out hydrogenated oils
from your diet will make you feel healthier, help you lose weight and save
you from long-term health problems down the road.
Have warm baths and showers instead
you will after this. Besides, hot water strips the
protective natural oils from our skin anyway.
SO MOST OF US HAVE BEEN SOLD ON A MARKETING FALLACY.
NO SUGAR IS NATURAL, INCLUDING RAW SUGAR OR ORGANIC SUGAR - IT IS ALL A MARKETING PLOY - THEY ALL GO THROUGH AN UNNATURAL PROCESS. IN FACT, IT'S CHEMICAL STRUCTURE IS ALMOST IDENTICAL TO COCAINE. (that's why it is so addictive). IT ALSO RAISES CORTISOL LEVELS: A STRESS HORMONE THAT STACKS ON WEIGHT.
YOU ARE ALSO GUARANTEED TO RAISE CORTISOL WITH STRENUOUS EXERCISE!
YOU CAN ACTUALLY TAKE OFF WEIGHT AND IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH JUST BY CUTTING OUT SUGAR,
MARGARINE AND VEGE OILS......AND BY LIMITING FRUIT JUICE TO 4OZ A DAY DILUTED......
AND CHOOSING REAL FOODS OVER PROCESSED FOODS. TRY IT AND SEE.
NO-FAT AND LOW-FAT DIETS ARE DESPERATELY LACKING IN FAT-FIGHTING FATS.
THESE ARE HEALTHY FATS THAT WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY WHEN DIETING INSTEAD OF
FATIGUED AND CRANKY. NO-ONE SHOULD FEED THEIR KIDS (family meals) ON THOSE DIETS.
THEY ARE TOTALLY UNNATURAL. NOT A GOOD PRACTICE. NEITHER ARE PACKETS OF SWEETS,
CHIP POTATOES AND SODAS. YOU ARE COMPROMISING THEIR IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Fructose is difficult to digest
Most people (yes, most people) get more fructose than
their digestive system can absorb. Most people cannot properly digest all the
fructose they get every day from an apparently normal and healthy diet. If you
are eating large quantities of fruit thinking it's healthy, well think again. A
normal healthy adult can properly digest 25-50 grams of fructose per day. Many
people have difficulty digesting less than that, and a few have difficulty
digesting any fructose at all. www.growyouthful.com
Under Certain Circumstances Your Body Can Convert Carbs
Dr. Johnson’s research has revealed yet another major
surprise: There are circumstances in which carbohydrates can be converted to
fructose in your body even when there’s no fructose in the
carbs. The underlying mechanism for this is still unclear, but he believes that
insulin resistance may be one of the conditions that allows for this odd
conversion to occur.
“The way I interpret this now, based upon the data we
have, is that if you want to not gain weight, the most important thing is to
reduce sugar/fructose intake from your diet. But if you’re really overweight,
the old low-carb diet may be a good way to go because it will reduce the
fructose intake, but it will also reduce carbs that may be playing a role,
under certain circumstances, in making fructose in the body,” Dr.
“... It looks like in normal, healthy, young people
[carbs and/or glucose] is not being converted to fructose. But we do have some
evidence that under certain conditions – one of them would be insulin
resistance, or if you’re overweight – you may be converting some of the carbs
Fructose Metabolizes Differently than Other Sugars
Fructose is a sugar, just like glucose. But when it’s
metabolized, it’s actually very different from glucose, and this makes all the
difference in the world in terms of weight and health.
While all cells use some energy in the process of
metabolizing food, whether it’s fat or sugar, fructose uses up so much energy
that the cell becomes energy-depleted. As a result, the cell stops functioning
normally and starts to develop an inflammatory response, also known as
In a nutshell, a high-fructose diet causes chronic
inflammation in your body, which glucose does not do.
“We found that when the energy is depleted... the ATP
levels fell (ATP is our energy source). The ATP that had been consumed broke
down. Suddenly, a substance called uric acid formed. Uric acid is the substance
that we know can cause gout, but it’s been long associated with obesity... It
wasn’t really thought that the uric acid might have a role in obesity. This was
a big challenge, because no one really wanted to believe that, but what we were
able to show is that uric acid can actually stimulate fat accumulation in
cells through this process of working on
the mitochondria where the ATP is made,” Dr.
Richard Johnson explains.
According to Johnson's research. just after Sugar came on the market, there has been a widespread epidemic of Overweight and Obesity that continues to this day. It is very much the same since bottled Fruit Juices have been so plentiful. The reason for this is because of the whopping amount of Fructose in straight juice (undiluted) 1 or 2 glasses. Much more than you would ingest with 1 or 2 pieces of fresh fruit that has the fiber content to break it down for our body to handle.
High Fructose Corn Syrup is a major culprit in processed foods causing Weight Gain!

We have all heard about the dangers
of ingesting mercury. Mercury acts as a poison to your brain and
nervous system. It is especially dangerous for pregnant women and
small children, whose brains are still developing. Even in low doses,
mercury can interfere with brain development, memory and learning
In adults, mercury poisoning can be
a serious risk as well, and has been linked to Alzheimer‘s,
dementia, fertility problems, memory and vision loss, and trouble
with blood pressure regulation. It can also cause extreme fatigue and
Other studies show that mercury in
your central nervous system (CNS) causes psychological, neurological,
and immunological problems.
More than half of tested samples of
high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contain mercury. Although the makers
of HFCS like to claim that it‘s natural, HFCS is a highly refined
product that would never exist in nature.
Converting corn to HFCS is a very extensive process, and mercury is
used in the production of the HFCS.
You can avoid it if you focus your
diet on whole healthy, natural foods. If you do purchase any
processed foods, make sure you read the label … and put it back on
the shelf if it lists high-fructose corn syrup as an ingredient --
especially if it‘s the first or second highest labeled ingredient.
Keep looking, food companies are starting to realize the general
public‘s growing distaste for HFCS and are beginning to use Stevia

DO YOU HAVE AN ADDICTION TO BREADS AND BAKERY ITEMS?
THE PSEUDO WHEAT WE HAVE TODAY IS NOTHING LIKE THE WHEAT WE HAD YEARS AGO!
After having his patients cut wheat from their diets completely, Dr. William Davis says,
they lost weight and showed improved clarity
Q: How does wheat make us fat, exactly?
A: It contains amylopectin A, which is more efficiently
converted to blood sugar than just about any other carbohydrate, including
table sugar. In fact, two slices of whole wheat bread increase blood sugar to a
higher level than a candy bar does. And then, after about two hours, your blood
sugar plunges and you get shaky, your brain feels foggy, you're hungry. So
let's say you have an English muffin for breakfast. Two hours later you're
starving, so you have a handful of crackers, and then some potato chips, and
your blood sugar rises again. That cycle of highs and lows just keeps going
throughout the day, so you're constantly feeling hungry and constantly eating.
Dieticians have responded to this by advising that we graze throughout the day,
which is just nonsense. If you eliminate wheat from your diet, you're no longer
hungry between meals because you've stopped that cycle. You've cut out the
appetite stimulant, and consequently you lose weight very quickly. I've seen
this with thousands of patients.
Q: But I'm not overweight and I exercise regularly. So
why would eating whole wheat bread
be bad for me?
A: You can trigger effects you don't perceive. Small low-density
lipoprotein [LDL] particles form when you're eating lots of carbohydrates, and
they are responsible for atherosclerotic plaque, which in turn triggers heart
disease and stroke. So even if you're a slender, vigorous, healthy person,
you're still triggering the formation of small LDL particles. And second,
carbohydrates increase your blood sugars, which cause this process of
glycation, that is, the glucose modification of proteins. If I glycate the
proteins in my eyes, I get cataracts. If I glycate the cartilage of my knees
and hips, I get arthritis. If I glycate small LDL, I'm more prone to atherosclerosis.
So it's a twofold effect. And if you don't start out slender and keep eating
that fair trade, organically grown whole wheat bread that sounds so healthy,
you're repeatedly triggering high blood sugars and are going to wind up with
more visceral fat. This isn't just what I call the wheat belly that you can
see, flopping over your belt, but the fat around your internal organs. And as
visceral fat accumulates, you risk responses like diabetes and heart disease.
