Pastfood - improve your health and loose weight
and more people become sick by unhealthy food and the lack of knowledge about food and
health. The governments sends out alarming messages but don't do much on the real problems
of overweight and health problems because of economic reasons.
As long as big food
companies manipulate the right people inside governments we have to be smart and
educate ourselves by sharing info online and learn about the natural foods.
So back to basic !

The plan for people who
reflect on their nutrition
Do you want a
Then a stable bloodsugar
balance is the key many people have not yet discovered. According to doctor Felperlaan
quick carbohydrates in bread, white rice, sugar, potatoes are the real cause of many
standard of life sicknesses. A large production of insulin not only disturbs the hormone
household but also your defense.
For people who reflect on
their nutrition and not blindly follow a guru towards their umpteenth fat-free crash diet.
Consider the information mentioned below as an aid to draw your own plan. When you move
about too little choose slow carbohydrates which satisfy you for a long period and do not
speed up your sugar mirror. Have oatmeal, rye bread or wheat germ bread for breakfast but
no slice of breakfast cake. The more fibers you consume, the better it is for your body
line. Indulge yourself in the use of nutrition and with as much as possible raw
unprocessed products with full life energy. Everything above 60 degrees Centigrade hot is
dead nutrition and therefore includes much fruit, uncooked food, nuts, seeds and lettuce
in your plan. Let nutrition be your medicine so that you dont become dependent on
Why do people who want a
healthier weight, get bogged down? They follow crash diets or follow the short-sighted
recommendations of the nutrition center and find out that those methods do not work and it
generally work backwards in the long run. Fine! I choose consciously brands on industry
products but the brand name actually should be your vegetable farmer and not the heavily
refined products which roll off a production line. But also no meat of a caged animal and
is purely grown (bio-industry) for our consumption. The stress which will follow in
combination with high amount of antibiotics then gets on your plate. Someone who wants to
shed weight must limit his carbohydrates (sugars) drastically with the best nutrition.
Want to get
skinnier this summer?
Do you want to get rid of
some pounds during the coming summer months? Then eat some more:
- Vegetables and salads with
cold pressed olive oil/walnut oil
- Fruit, preferably berries,
strawberries, pears, apples
- Cooked Omega 3 eggs
- Uncooked food
- Raw nuts and then preferably
pistachio nuts, almonds and pecan nuts
- Fatty fish
- Dried apricots
Things to avoid
- Beer and other alcoholic
- potato products
- Light products
- Products which contain taste
- Bakery products
- White rice and white pastas
- Steamed silvery chaff
- Rye bread
- wheat germ bread/Essener
- rolled oats/muesli
- Coffee and tea (withdraw
Do you eat too
If you consume 200 to 500
calories per day too much, you have three choices:
- Go and sport every day. But
nobody can sustain it.
- You can drastically reduce
your calories but your appetite becomes you biggest enemy
- Eat nutrition which
satisfies you more and is more nutritive so to decrease
and you will automatically lose weight because your calories intake is slowly lowered
Why is losing weight
normally so difficult? People like dutch dietguru Sonja Baker think that only calorie
restriction is sufficient to get trim. For them losing weight is simple arithmetic.
Imagine that you need to have 2000 calories per day as a woman, then according our
"experts" you simply reduce with 600-1000 calories, to quickly lose a kilo per
week. And many a Dutchman is in a hurry because only fast results counts and therefore
chooses this as a means to drastic lowering daily calories.
But such a drastic measure
does not go unnoticed; the body is a smart engine that recognizes patterns and due to a
low calorie intake protects itself, by reducing the metabolism. As soon as you deviate
from your diet you immediately gain more weight because you metabolism has been tuned in
on a lower intake and therefore stores the extra calories in the body as fat. What I
discover is that with this type diets a great lack of vital Omega 3 acids exist which is
important to the brain, satiations, your heart and blood vessels and all kinds of other
processes in the body.
This wrong economy will
break many persons in the long run. Furthermore it is in my eyes impossible, with a diet
of 1000-1200 calories, to get all necessary nutrition substances down.
Another big problem is
that the world looks at fat not as ally but as an adversary. One has since the 1950s a
fixation for fat but nothing has helped and overweight has only increased. The problem of
this sort crash diets is still the basis for fast carbohydrates such as potatoes, buns,
breakfast cake. These hurry up the sugar mirror too much and as a result your appetite
increases only whereas correctly albumen and good fats satisfy.
Sonja and many of her
colleagues apparently didnt get the message given by the many scientific studies
which have been done the last years regarding low carbohydrate programs (low carb). Also
in studies in which the correlation exists between excess weight and low fat
products/taste enhancers are demonstrated, are unknown to these experts. Not to talk about
the large quantity of acrylic resin amide contained in fine breakfast cake and taai
taai (kind of gingerbread) which they recommended.
Here is a short refresher
course for our Dutch "experts"
Thus no cooked potatoes,
crusted roll and products with taste enhancers or low fat products which boost your
appetite, but only nutrition with a low gluten free value. This is nutrition which keeps
your sugar mirror stable because sugars are released slowly and therefore satisfies
longer. The more fibers contained in the product, the lower the value of gluten free is.
The trick is further is to raise the good albumens (such as green vegetable, beans, nuts
and algae) and good fats (such as unheated nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocados and fatty wild
fish) so that you are longer satisfied and get down important building bricks for your
The biggest mistake the
majority of people make when on a diet is to cut out fats. This gives not only big
problems with elimination and intake of fat soluble vitamins but sabotages also the brain.
There is more and more proof for correlations between among others depressions, amnesia,
concentration problems and shortages due to Omega 3 acids.
15 years ago I suffered
the same mistake, fat was banned, and the base became bread with lean condiment and cooked
potatoes. But appetite only increased, I felt myself frequently down and was rapidly sick.
I even will drink cola light..... Oh well 2 years ago as an IT analyst I studied nutrition
on the latest finding and everything fell into place. To save you 15 years of misery you
can reinvent the wheel or profit of my experiences and knowledge for free. I do not have
to earn on you, dont have to promote cheap articles from the supermarket and you
dont have to wear out books which I leave to others. My mission is to awake you and
to make you realize that nutrition plays a vital role and is not a shut case in your life.
My formula is very simple,
the less that you move around, the less carbohydrates that you must eat. It is really not
a problem to go biking or walk during the day and a sandwich is no problem. But if you sit
the entire day in an office or sit a lot on a seat then fast carbohydrate is your
strongest enemy. And this adversary will take care eventually to give you diabetes. To the
nutrition center is with regard to diet, everyone an equal, but you can not compare
someone who work the whole day in the field with a computer analyst like I. If you have a
belly then you must choose for restricted quantity slow carbohydrates. Fat free food will
work in time adversely.
My slogan is
First of all, the word
diet is in fact not the correct word. Namely, it is all about some awareness of the role
of nutrition in your health. When you are aware of what you put in your mouth you are on
your way. Many people survive instead of live because they stand daily in line, dont
enjoy work, have stresses in their lives and meals are a shut door for which little time
remains. Thus quickly in and out of the supermarket, to buy a pile of groceries destined
for the microwave at home. Once in a while it is alright, I can enjoy a bag of fries or
croquette in time too but it concerns the base of your existence. Without a healthy body
you cant enjoy many things any longer optimally and the best investment which you
can do is still your own body. Choose refined products with a lot of chemicals and
synthetic additives then you can be assured to sabotage yourself.
Without good nutrition you
dont have you the proper fuel for your engine and one day you will get stuck with an
engine breakdown. A healthy body is the most valuable possession, but many realize that a
lot of things can go wrong. We exhaust ourselves and keep ourselves going with sources
such as coffee, cola, nicotine, potent drinks, quick sugars and like medicines it covers
up symptoms and you havent solve the cause.
If you really like to do
something for your health then look critically at your nutrition. Go back to basics, which
are still vegetables, fruit, water, beans, raw nuts and seeds and limit animal products.
Grains are also important but of the kinds which do not speed up your sugar mirror such as
oatmeal, rye bread, buckwheat etc.
Dont let yourself be
driven nuts by propaganda of the industry. Too many people fall prey to it. Masses of
people switch to margarine (plenty of transfats - see www.transvetzuren.com) because
creamery butter was to be unhealthy, and instead margarine and harden lard blocks are the
destroyers of your blood vessels. Milk is also an item, we only hear concerning the
studies which are favorable for the milk industry but one conceals critical studies and
correlations with mucous membrane problems, skin problems, bowel problems etc because it
is damaging for the trade.
Every natural doctor knows
this but the average general practitioner knows little about nutrition because its
not part of the curriculum. The role of nutrition is still underestimated by the medical
vestige and pharmaceutical medicines are preferred. But there are fortunately doctors with
orthomolecule training which looks at to the role of nutrition in complaints and excess
An important cause of
overweight is disturbance of the sugar mirror which too much shoots up whereby the body
must too frequently produce insulin. This overload is possible to all sorts of problems
such as skin problems (acne), infections, overweight, problems with conversion of Omega 6
I never understood why the
one person can eat the same and can remain skinny whereas the other person who even eats
less and gains weight. There is therefore more to it than purely a calorie count. What I
have actually experienced is that lean people apparently take more effective energy out of
carbohydrates and have a lower sugar mirror and as a result must eat also more to keep
this level up. The other group (me included) have apparently more difficulty with the
conversion of carbohydrates and store apparently immediately some fat. It is therefore
less active because energy is less available. If you do office work then you use a
fraction of energy which is released, and you gain more weight. In my circle of friends I
observe skinny friends in the morning who really want to eat (low blood sugar mirror)
whereas the rest rather skips breakfast and postpone their appetite.
The big problem now is
however that our modern diet has been based on bread, rice, potatoes and sugars (alcohol,
snacks) and which precisely cause a considerable increase of that sugar mirror. Therefore
if you want to keep your sugar mirror more stable then you should decrease these products
considerably and choose nutrition with a lower gluten free value. Your pancreas gets some
rest and you will have less appetite and be longer satisfied. Even more so if you choose
good unheated fats such as cold pressed oil and raw nuts. Fat is very important for your
health, among others for the brain and absorption of certain vitamins. And just the first
thing people frequently do with excess weight is to eat fat free, the biggest mistake you
can make. Your body will ask for more carbohydrates with the result of taxing your sugar
mirror and with all impact thereof. Youll be trapped in a vicious circle and be
caught up in the well-known yoyo effect.
This site is my gift to
you. I share to my knowledge with you in the hope that you examine good nutrition what it
can do for your excess weight and health. It cost you nothing, you dont have to buy
a book with recipes but you will determine for yourself which alternative variation you
will use. And something else, everybody always says that they cant eat anything
more. You must turn it around, and look at what you all can eat and build this up slowly.
Occasional sinning is no problem as long as your daily foundation is sound.
There is still so much to
discover what is good for your body. There is a new world for you opening up but you must
further look beyond the path of the supermarket with many of its industrial temptations.
Dont become a supermarket junkie but choose slow food, for which in your day of
retirement you will be grateful.

Sibbald (San Diego)
Governments focus on distribution of
drugs, antibiotics, hormones (through meat and dairy) and vaccinations. The real source of
our problems is the food which is full of chemical garbage, insecticides and manipulated
and refined grains, soya, fruits etc. Why get so
many people cancer you think? Because we have turned our bodies
into chemical machines, if you put the wrong fuel in it, one day
your motor will burst.
I don't have the money large fastfood and
pharmaceutical companies have but will do my best to help you improve your health. I
don't need money but any help with articles, advice, healthy recipes etc
is welcome. One day the truth will be known and the food and pastfood industry tricks will
be exposed. Keep in mind that large
multinationals first sell you high calorie icecreams and then try
to sell you diet products.
Pharmaceuticals want long term customers so they produce
products which you will need to use on the long
term as they only cure the symptons and not the real cause of
your sickness which in many cases is food/bowels related. Your
body can repair itself but only if you take the right organic foods
and especially raw food products that contain a lot of amino acids,
enzymes, minerals and anti-oxydants. Any time you bake, cook,
fry food you loose healing power and your body will give up. If
you eat the same products (bread, dairy, fastfood) over and over
your immune system will become exhausted as it needs green
vegetables, organic foods, olive oil, algae/seaweed products.
I myself believe in the principle of
karma. This also relates to animals and nature. If you abuse our nature and the animals
(pollution, polluted food, stressful surroundings, use of growth hormones, pesticides) we
will get it returned on our plate. We manipulate grains, want animals to grow too fast and
refine good food so little good food remains for our body. This negative energy
returns as a boomerang to us and the new generations will pay the price for this abuse of
See how many children worry with all
kinds of food intolerances and sensitivities. Children are heavily vaccinated so that own
natural defense system is undermined, good mother milk is replaced by cow milk, too fast
introduction of wheat (gluten) in still vulnerable bowels of small children and addicting
gifts that are given by the junkfood clans to attract a new generation of fastfood
junkies. Stress combined with bad food will let both adults and children pay the price.
While more and more people suffer from
dairy related health problems food companies and governments stilll continue to tell us
that dairy products are healthy for us. But for many people the digestion of the milk
proteine is a real problem. Also more and more people have a digestion problem with
lactose causing allergies, colds and lots of slime in their body. Also people like Walter
Willett are attacking the calcium story behind milk. If dairy would be so good for your
bones why do many Europeans and Americans suffer from bone related problems. Also African
and Asian people seem to miss the enzyme lactase which is needed to digest lactose. So it
is a question if milk is really so healthy for people from other regions. [Source:
American Association for the Advancement of Science, 16 februari 2004]
More and more people use food with added
vitamins or chemical supplements. This can damage your body lead when you get too much. If
you use a pill which contains 100% of your daily needs and besides that you also use food
with added vitamins and minerals whereto will lead this ? E.g Tto much vitamine A or Zinq
can hurt you.
Also there is a theory that by preparing
food in the magnetron the structure of food is changed as a result of which the body
cannot recognise the feeding substances and also gives changes in your blood. A

decision was years later destroyed by the European court of human rights. This sentence
had make an end to legal censorship of persons, who want establish the attention on the
dangers for the health by certain products.

This site is ment for people who want a
healthier live. How stronger you make your body how stronger your immune system becomes.
If you become sick you can go the
pharmaceutical route or go back to the source of your problems. If your doctor has no
answers or knowledge of food/health related problems then time to look for alternative
An ordinary doctor looks at the symptoms
and prefers the use of medicines. But the source of the problem has not been solved so the
problem can become chronical. Natural doctors will focus on the source of your problems
and also include your food habits.
You are what you eat so take care you get
the best food possible, don't go for easy refined foods, they only starve you and make you
go wild for snacks. Go for the good fats (nuts, fish), green supplements (chlorella,
spirulina, barley weed), full grain products and be careful with animal products, dairy
and fastfood. If you want to become older than 50-60 years it is time to change your life,
one day you might regret you did not take the right decision.
Which food is the most important for our
This is simply living food and raw food.
What is the difference?
Living foods are very important for
weight management, healing of incurable diseases, rejuvenation of your body, and life
extension. They are rich in the eight essential amino acids, fatty acids, varieties of
naturally-occurring sugars, chelated minerals, vitamins, chlorophyll, nucleic acids,
hormones, water, and fiber. And they are the highest in enzymes and oxygen. Foods in this
category: sprout mixtures of non-starchy small seeds, legumes and grains; sunflower and
buckwheat baby greens; fresh juice of wheatgrass and barley and raw sauerkraut and food
supplements which are low-heat processed to maintain their enzyme integrity like aloe
vera, spirulina, chlorella, and the red Algae called Dunaliella.
Raw foods contain less enzymes and oxygen
banks, but still enough to maintain your existing health: fresh, organic vegetables and
ripe fruit, spices and herbs (fresh), sea vegetables, raw nuts, raw dairy products, and
dried fruit that has been soaked for at least 5 hours.
So for getting healthier and older you
know what to eat on a daily base. If this is too much effort for you you will end up in
the pharmaceutical cycle as your body will burn out.
Want to live a longer life? Then follow
- Eat a lot of living foods
sprouted seeds and beans, grass juices, algae
- Eat raw food
raw nuts, raw animal products, fruit, fresh juices
- Eat less calories
Eating more calories means more free radicals in your body
so more damage to your cells
- Avoid intake of free radicals in your food
This radicals are in all heated food, iron/calcium/zinq supplements, dairy products and
high doses vitamine
C and E supplements
- Avoid cigarette smoke or smoked foods
- Avoid fruit treated with pesticides or
- Avoid polluted water or air
- Foods covered in soft plastics, Phthalates
leak into your food. Phthalates can be absorbed through the skin, inhaled as fumes,
ingested when they contaminate food or when children bite or suck on toys. Hundreds of
animal studies have shown that phthalates can damage the liver, the kidneys, the lungs and
the reproductive system, especially the developing testes.

essential for our health
Because of our overcooked
diets, our digestion must "steal" enzymes from other organs setting up a
competition for enzymes among various organ systems, "The resulting metabolic
dislocations may be the direct cause of cancer, coronary heart disease, diabetes and many
other chronic incurable diseases." Lack of digestive enzymes, according to Dr Howell,
is responsible for enlarged pituitary glands (the one that regulates all the others) and
Because of the lack of

suggests that I3C can inhibit the invasion of normal tissue by cancer cells and inhibit
the development of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) required by tumors to fuel their rapid

tumors. Also they contain a chemical called isothiocyanates, which slowed down the

I know this beans are available in Madagascar but not sure if
they are available in Europe or USA.
Low glycemic food
products. What is the glycemic index?
The glycemic index is a
ranking of carbohydrates based on their immediate effect on blood glucose (blood sugar)
levels. It compares foods gram for gram of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates that breakdown
quickly during digestion have the highest glycemic indexes. The blood glucose response is
fast and high. Carbohydrates that breakdown slowly, releasing glucose gradually into the
blood stream, have low glycemic indexes. For a complete database of glycemic values click here
What to avoid
Proteines in the morning,
these are heavy for your digestion process.
By eating just fruit and carrotjuice in the morning you extend the
cleansing and detox process of the night. So your body has more time
to get rid of bad stuff. Always start the day with taking warm (not hot!)
water with bit of lemonjuice. This will activate your liver and remove
mucilage from your bowels.
Too much dairy products,
instead of milk and desserts take low fat
yoghurt and cheese. Even beter is to replace dairy by more green vegetables, almonds and
sesamseeds which are better sources of
calcium. Simply keep in mind where the cow gets its calcium from,
does an adult cow drink dairy products? No, they use green grass.
The best thing you can do is grow barley wheat and extract juice
from it. One glass contains 11 times the amount of calcium in a
glass of milk and no side effects. If you have chronic forehead
infections or colds keep in mind that dairy can be the reason. In
that case drink soymilk for 1 month to see what happens.
Coffee and tea, stick to
max 1 serving a day. If you drink tea
drink it with a bit of skimmed milk so the calcium in your stomach
is not absorbed by the acid (Tannin) in the tea. Better drink
herbal teas, water, tomato juice, fresh fruit drinks (no sugar added).
Also coffee and tea extra water so for each cup you need to drink
2 glasses of water to compensate the loss. This is essential for
weight loss. Water helps your body to get rid of things and gives
energy to your cells and various digestion processes. Never drink
shortly for, after or during a meal as the water will dilute the
flatulence acid so digestion of your food will take much more time
Red meat, red meat and
sugar fuel cancer cells so eat max 1-2
times a week red meat. If you switch to vegetarian food be very
careful with shortage of Vitamin B12 which is in animal products
only and very important for your brain / memory functions.
Cereals like cornflakes,
focus on cereals that have low glycemic
values so which will not raise your blood sugar, good example is
All Bran (Kelloggs). High bloodsugar means more fat storage and more graving moods and
interest in bad carbs and sugar.
Skipping breakfast, your
body will need more food in the evening
which is resulting in more fat storage. The best way to start is
taking for example oatmeal with lowfat milk or soymilk.
Avoid sugars including
table sugar, maltose, glucose, aspartaam,
sucrose, honey. Good sugar is frutose (fruit sugar). Also have a look
at Stevia which is a plant from Paraguay. This plant replaced 60%
of the sugar market in Japan.
Too much bread, bread
contains glutes (sort of glue) so better eat
the full grain version, spelt or pumpernickel and max 2-3 slices a day. You could start
the day with oatmeal and east 2 slices as lunch combined with soup (vegetable, chicken,
tomato or lentil soup)
Sleep in the dark. Use
room-darkening shades or wear a sleep mask
and keep your room cool. A dark room is important so your pineal can produce the hormone
melatonin. Melatonin is made by the bodys pineal gland, a pea-sized gland located
just above the middle of the brain. During the day, the pineal is inactive, however, as
the sun goes down, darkness activates the pineal, and melatonin production begins. As
melatonin levels in the blood rise, we also become less alert and sleepy. The next
morning, with daylight, melatonin decreases and alertness replaces the sleepiness.
Go to bed early (11 PM) so
your liver can do its work. During the night the liver is cleaning your body and if you go
to bed late not all the poison/waste will not be removed from your body.
Be careful with antibiotic
products, they will ruine your stomach
bacteria and cause digestion problems.

It is well known that saturated fats are bad for us and polyunsaturated fats good, what is
less well known is that of the two types of polyunsaturated fats, omega-6 (w6) and omega-3
(w3), we eat plenty of w6 and not enough of w3, when in fact they should balance.
Columbus Eggs contain twice as much polyunsaturated fats as standard eggs and have an
exact balance of w6 and w3. Scientific trials have shown that one can eat as many as two
or three Columbus Eggs a day without increasing ones cholesterol level whilst
actually reducing the amount of fat circulating in ones blood.

to many of today's degenerative disease conditions. Chlorella's unique phytochemical known
as CGF, or Chlorella Growth Factor, is believed to be responsible for many of the
therapeutic effects that have been reported in scientific journals throughout the world.
In Japan, chlorella is by far the most popular nutritional supplement today with over five
million people taking it on a daily basis. The Japanese, by the way, are among the longest
living people of all the industrialized nations.
An individual chlorella cell is barely
larger than a human red blood cell which allows for micro fine filtering. This filtering
process excludes any potentially toxic strain of algae or inorganic matter from entering
the harvest. Ultrasonic sound is used to break the individual chlorella cell walls. This
process preserves the phytonutrients and RNA / DNA values thus providing maximum
absorbability. If the cell wall is not broken, the nutrients in chlorella are almost
entirely unavailable as they are protected by a tough cellulose shell. One of its main
functions is as a superior detoxifier: especially good before and after having silver /
mercury amalgams removed from one's teeth. It helps to chelate with and draw heavy metals
out of one's body.
Kefir is a fermented milk drink originating in the Caucasus. The drink is
prepared by inoculating milk or soy milk with the grains - or "beads" - of
previous kefir batches. Kefir grains are a combination of probiotic bacteria and yeasts in
a matrix of proteins, lipids and sugars. Lactobacillus acidophilus and Saccharomyces kefir
are widely used, though the exact combination of bacteria and yeasts vary between
cultures. The milk is incubated at room temperature for a day or more, during which the
lactose is fermented. The resulting beverage is a sour, carbonated, slightly alcoholic
drink. The consistency is similar to yoghurt. In fact, most American "kefir"
lacks both carbonation and alcohol and is nothing more than liquid yogurt.
Kombucha is the Western name for a fermentation of sweetened tea using
lactobacilli and yeast cultures. The tea contains a symbiosis of yeast species and acetic
acid bacteria. Species of yeast found in the tea can vary, and may include: Brettanomyces
bruxellensis, Candida stellata, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Torulaspora delbrueckii and
Zygosaccharomyces bailii. Some studies have found potent anti-stress, hepato-protective,
antioxidant and immunomodulating properties in Kombucha preparations given to rats. The
name Kombucha is pseudo-Japanese. In Japanese this word denotes a tea-like infusion (cha)
made from brown kelp (kombu). This Japanese Kombucha is not fermented and does not contain
parts of the tea plant. It is not sweet, but sometimes it is salted. It tastes like a thin
soup and it is a favourite food for reconvalescense of sick persons who cannot yet eat
Stevia is a genus of about 150 species of herbs and shrubs belonging to the
Asteraceae (sunflower) family, native to subtropical and tropical South America and
Central America (north to Mexico).
For centuries, the Guarani Native Americans of Paraguay and Brazil used Stevia species,
primarily S. rebaudiana which they called ka'a he' ("sweet herb"), as a
sweetener in yerba mate and medicinal teas for treating such conditions as obesity, high
blood pressure, and heartburn. It has recently seen greater attention with the rise in
demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives, and is widely used as a
sweetener in Japan, and is available in the US and Canada as a health food supplement. In
1931, French chemists isolated the glycosides that give stevia its sweet taste. These
extracts were named steviosides and rebaudiosides. These compounds are 250300 times
sweeter than sucrose (ordinary table sugar). Stevia's sweet taste has a slower onset and
longer duration than sugar's, and especially at high concentration, it has bitter and and
liquorice-like off-tastes. Stevia does not significantly alter blood glucose, and so can
be safely consumed by diabetics.
In the 70s, the Japanese people began
cultivating stevia as an alternative to artificial sweeteners such as cyclamate and
saccharin, which were at that time suspect carcinogens. The plant's leaves, and purified
steviosides are used as sweeteners. Stevia sweeteners have been produced since 1977 and
are widely used in food products, soft drinks, and for table use. Japan currently consumes
more stevia than any other country; there, stevia accounts for 40% of the sweetener
The azuki bean (adzuki) is an annual vine widely grown throughout northeast Asia
and the Himalaya for its small (approximately 5mm) bean . The cultivars most familiar in
northeast Asia have a uniform red color, but white, black, gray and variously mottled
varieties are also known. Genetic evidence indicates that the azuki bean was first
domesticated in the Himalaya. It was cultivated in China and Korea before 1000 BC. It was
later taken to Japan, where it is now the second most popular legume after the soybean.
Contains B1, B2, Iron and kalium. Is recommend by Reiner Schmidt for kidney problems.
Pitanga, Suriname cherry
Comes originally from South-America. The colour is red and it contains lots of
vitamine C. Taste: sharp/sour
Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about two
tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary
heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive
oil. To achieve this possible benefit, olive oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat
and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day. It has been documented
that olive oil intake bolsters the immune system against external attacks from
microorganisms, bacteria or viruses. Recent research has concluded that the fatty acids in
the make-up of olive oil are good allies in lowering important immunological parameters
such as the proliferation of lymphocytes induced by specific mitogens of both B- and
T-cells. These fatty acids have been reported to play an important part in various immune
functions. They are involved in regulating inflammatory processes and they may be
effective in the treatment of some autoimmune diseases and in the regulation of the immune
system in general. When consumed, olive oil produces a small amount of secretion by the
pancreas, making this organ "work" little, but efficiently and enough to carry
out all its digestive functions. Olive oil is recommended in diseases where pancreatic
function has to be maintained, such as pancreas failure, chronic pancreatitis, cystic
fibrosis, malabsorption syndromes, etc. Owing to the sitosterol it contains, olive oil
partially prevents cholesterol absorption by the small intestine. It also stimulates the
absorption of various nutrients (calcium, iron, magnesium, etc.).
Quinoa comes originally from the Andean region of South America, where it has
been an important food for 6,000 years. Quinoa is generally undemanding and
altitude-hardy, so it can be easily cultivated in the Andes up to about 4,000 meters.
Unlike wheat or rice, quinoa contains a full complement of the amino acids that the human
body can't produce itself, making it an unusually complete foodstuff. It also contains
essential omega-3 fatty acids, which provide benefit to the heart.
New studies conducted at Pace University have indicated that White Tea Extract
(WTE) may have prophylactic applications in retarding growth of bacteria that cause
Staphylococcus infections, Streptococcus infections, pneumonia and dental caries. The
effect of WTE was determined by observing zones of inhibition of bacteria grown on Mueller
Hinton II Agar (Kirby-Bauer technique). White tea was more effective than green tea at
inactivating bacterial viruses. . Results obtained with the bacterial virus, a model
system; suggest that WTE may have an anti-viral effect on human pathogenic viruses. The
addition of White Tea Extract to various toothpastes enhanced the anti-microbial effect of
these oral agents. Studies have also indicated that WTE has an anti-fungal effect on
Penicillium chrysogenum and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In the presence of WTE, Penicillium
spores and Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast cells were totally inactivated. It is suggested
that WTE may have an anti-fungal effect on pathogenic fungi.
White tea" does not refer to black
tea with milk, but rather to a specific form of tea in which the leaves and buds are
simply steamed and dried. In this sense, white tea represents the least processed form of
tea, since green, oolong and black teas undergo withering before various degrees of
oxidation. White tea also contains a higher proportion of buds, which are covered with
fine 'silvery' hairs that impart a light white/grey color to the tea. White tea brews to a
pale yellow/light red color, and has a slightly sweet flavor with no 'grassy' undertones
sometimes associated with green tea.
Researchers at the LPI tested four types
of white tea for their ability to inhibit mutations in bacteria, and subsequently examined
the protective properties in a rat colon cancer model. In the former studies using
bacteria, white teas were generally more effective than green tea in inhibiting
mutagenicity (mutagenicity is a result of unrepaired/misrepaired DNA damage and an early
step in the process leading to cancer). White teas contained many of the expected
polyphenols, some of which were present at higher concentrations than in green tea brewed
under the same conditions. Other constituents, such as caffeine, also were present at
higher levels in white tea.
Fruits are round to oblate, cherry-like but with 3 lobes. They are bright red and
easily bruised. The fruit is very high in Vitamin C, up to 4,000 mg per
100 g fresh weight, but typically around 1,500 mg C. Green fruits have twice the
Vitamin C level of mature fruits.
Wild Yukon King Salmon
The Yukon river King Salmon has the highest omega 3 fatty acids of all the wild
salmon species. All the salmon found in Alaskan waters are wild! In fact it is illegal to
farm salmon in Alaska. The term wild salmon means that the fish are free range and can
complete their natural life cycle without being penned and fed artifical foods.
A pilot study conducted by Dr Easton with David Suzuki Foundation found that farmed salmon
and the feed they were fed appeared to have a much higher level of contamination with
respect to PCBs, organo-chlorine pesticides and polybrominated diphenyl ethers than did
wild salmon. It concluded that it seems that contamination in farm fish comes from the
Researchers have learned that there are various natural herbal substances such as
the Mexican Yam or Wild Yam that enable the body to produce its own DHEA. These natural
nutritional substances, known as precursors, are a simple and relatively inexpensive way
to allow the body to manufacture DHEA as it is needed. In recent years, a great deal of
scientific and public interest has been generated over the possible health-promoting
properties of a hormone called DHEA or dehydroepiandrosterone. In fact, over 40,000
articles have been published in both professional journals and popular magazines relating
to the positive effects of DHEA upon human health. This hormone is produced by the adrenal
glands which rest on top of each kidney. Researchers consider DHEA to be the "mother
hormone" because it can readily be converted into other hormones including estrogen,
testosterone, progesterone, and cortisone. The adrenal glands produce more of this
critical substance than any other adrenal hormone and it is present at higher levels in
our bloodstream than other hormones. Maintaining proper DHEA blood levels is necessary for
the support and regulation of the many body functions that involve our endocrine system
and affect our health, energy and longevity.
Almost always sold as a whole grain, wild rice is very high in
protein, the amino acid lysine and dietary fiber,
and is low in fat. Like normal
rice, it does not contain gluten.
It is also a good source of the minerals potassium and phosphorus, and the vitamins thiamine, riboflavin and niacin. Because of its nutritional value and
taste, wild rice increased in popularity in the late 20th century, and commercial
cultivation began in the US and Canada to supply the increased demand. California and Minnesota are the main
producers in the USA. Wild rice is the official state grain of Minnesota.
Kamut brand grain has higher nutritional value than the common wheats. The most striking
superiority is found in the protein level of this grain. Kamut brand wheat is also
significantly higher in total lipids. Since lipids are higher in energy than carbohydrates
and proteins, Kamut brand wheat can be described as a high-energy grain. The vast majority
of the nutrition in this grain, however, is in the form of complex carbohydrates whose
value in the diet is well documented. Kamut brand grain has significantly more magnesium
and zinc than the average wheat. Most Kamut products have a very
low glycemic index. This means that glucose is liberated very slowly during digestion and
supplies energy during a long period of time. Low glycemic foods are very important for
diabetics, dieters and athletes who look for foods that do not stimulate insulin and
Alfalfa is suggested to be a good cleanser and a natural diuretic. This herb is
also a folk remedy for joint stress, and is reputed to be an excellent appetite stimulant
and overall tonic Alfalfa is one of the most mineral-rich foods known, alfalfa has roots
that grow as much as 130 feet into the earth. Alfalfa is available in liquid extract form
and is good to use while fasting because of its chlorophyll and nutrient content. It
contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, plus beta-carotene, vitamins A,B-12,
C, D, E and K. The minerals are in a balanced form, which promotes absorption. These
minerals are alkaline, but have a neutralizing effect on the intestinal tract.
Smart Chicks Eat Smart Eggs
Eggs have long been known as "perfect nutrition" in a shell, because the egg
white contains all of the amino acids necessary for proper human nutrition and digestion.
Now new research reports that having an egg for breakfast is more
filling than having any other breakfast food, and can help limit your
caloric intake for the rest of the day by more than 400 calories.
Researchers also concluded that eggs have a 50-percent greater
satiety index than breakfast cereal or bread.*
