Nutritionists Pan ASN Processed Foods Statement

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

"The statement, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN), used a definition of processing that encompassed everything from washing, packaging, and freezing foods like fruits and vegetables all the way up to adding sugars and preservatives for foods like cake mixes and frozen pizzas.

Many nutrition experts contacted by MedPage Today lamented the statement's lack of distinction between minimally and highly processed foods."

"At the extreme, these are foods that all but glow in the dark," said David Katz, MD, MPH, of Yale's Prevention Research Center. "On the other hand, cooking, freezing, drying, and fermenting are also forms of 'processing,' making grilled salmon, frozen peas, dried figs, and organic plain yogurt 'processed foods' too. So much depends on just what we mean."

Andy Bellatti, MS, RD, a nutritionist in Las Vegas, said it was "disappointing to see that vital information like the extent to which a food is processed is considered irrelevant by the authors. A homemade batch of hummus is literally processed, but it is light years away from a bowl of Lucky Charms. No health advocate is worried about Americans eating frozen fruit or baby carrots."

    Thank you! I love this because I agree, I try to eat very little processed foods, but find it ridiculous when they consider my hummus and washed veggies processed like bread or like they said, Lucky Charms!

A Low-Carb Diet Cuts Risk of Colon Cancer

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

"Researchers at the University of Toronto have found that gut bacteria drive a common form of colon cancer, and that a low-carbohydrate diet can prevent the disease.

The researchers found that microbes in the intestine convert carbohydrates into metabolites that spur cancer growth. A low-carbohydrate diet shut down this process and led to a 75 per cent reduction in cancer incidence."

Your Brain On Ketones - How a high-fat diet can help the brain work better

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

"The opposite of a low fat, snacking lifestyle would be the lifestyle our ancestors lived for tens of thousands of generations, the lifestyle for which our brains are primarily evolved. It seems reasonable that we would have had extended periods without food, either because there was none available, or we were busy doing something else. Then we would follow that period with a filling meal of gathered plant and animal products, preferentially selecting the fat. During the day we might have eaten a piece of fruit, or greens, or a grub we dug up, but anything filling or high in calories (such as a starchy tuber) would have to be killed, butchered, and/or carefully prepared before eating. Fortunately, we have a terrific system of fuel for periods of fasting or low carbohydrate eating - our body (and brain) can readily shift from burning glucose to burning what are called ketone bodies."

    BLAZINGSWORD, it's too bad your page is private, I would have like to clarify something important for you.

You have suffered from one of the common misunderstandings that the article points out very early on. Only people with poorly controlled Type 1 diabetes, end-stage Type 2 diabetes, and binge drinkers can go into keto-acidosis, which is not at all what ketosis is. In fact, as she points out, many healthy people are in ketosis every night when they sleep.

Your heart muscle actually prefers to be fueled by ketones, and will perform with 25% more efficiency.

Ketones can sometimes fuel Alzheimer-riddled brains when glucose is turned away.

JERF - Didn't have time to read the whole article while at work, I'll pick it up again at home. Looks excellent!

    That is one very concentrated blog! OMGosh!

My daughter, who is a Doctor of Nursing Practice, (she graduated May 2013), lent me her book, "Diabesity" by Francine Kaufman, M.D. and former past President of the American Diabetes Association.

I read the book which is quite extensive for my knowledge and information considering that my mom and best friend passed away from diabetes.

No, I am not a diabetic. That being said, the book says that yes, your brain can live off of fat but to do so would put it to the point where you can go into a coma which is what happens to some diabetics and it's not recommended to do that.

But I certainly hope that for a person who suffers from seizures, it may be a very good thing if it will control them but as I said before, it is something that would have to be very controlled and under the supervision of a doctor who knows what they are doing.

Just because they have a degree, doesn't mean that they know what they are doing.

I have a story to tell you but not now.

But thanks for sharing. It is something to remember.

Have a great day!
