Medicine isn’t the answer for a nutritional problem!

July 27, 2015

Report Criticizes FDA Approval Of Potentially Harmful Diet Medications.

In reading this report, it is obvious and not surprising that medicine is focused on medicine to fix a nutritional problem. Obesity is not the patients fault, it is a hormonal reaction to the food eaten, that leads to obesity and disease. It is by no means a willpower problem, or a lack of exercise. If we look at the macronutrients, Carbohydrates, Fats, and Proteins, they are simply chemicals and can be classified therefore as drugs or toxins depending on their effects. Carbohydrates are not essential for human life, and the only one of the macronutrients not needed for life. So if we are exposed to food 3-10 times a day, we are exposed to the chemicals (drugs) in them. If one can stretch for a moment and let me define carbohydrates as a toxin, then Americans are exposing themselves to toxins 3-10X per day. It doesn’t have to be a meal, but drinks, snacks, gum, breath mints, candy, etc… all qualify as exposure. No one in their right mind would knowingly expose themselves to a toxin that many times a day. For the non-smokers out there, it is akin to smoking multiple cigarettes per day.

Two of the 5 listed drugs in the article are stimulants (similar to amphetamines) and have been used before with limited to no long term success and have had a long list of side effects reported. The other three are combinations of drugs that affect neurotransmitters. That’s messing with the brain an awful lot and hence the concern about complications in the article. Carbohydrates affect neurotransmitters in a similar fashion to cocaine. So should we continue to eat the “drug” that alters our neurotransmitters and then take a drug that counteracts those effects on the brain, or should we just stop the drug that is negatively affecting our brain and the rest of our body systems??

The use of drugs, “short term,” feeds into the traditional belief in America in the diet world where we do something radical for a period of time at which time the “diet” is over and then we can go back to “life as usual.” Using our recommended low carb high fat approach, one would continue this for life with no hunger and no ill effects – only the return of absolute health.
