Concerning Wrong Nutritional Ideas (FAQ)
Q1) Does your belief that soy’s not good for health apply to all people or just to musclebuilders?
This principle is accurate no matter who you are. I should emphasize, however, that it is especially true for those who are trying to develop their muscular systems. The problem is that soy causes your body to produce hormones that are contrary to your goal. The source of the problem is the phytoestrogen content of soy. The result is that your body reacts to it by reducing your testosterone level.
A common place where soy shows up is in powdered proteins and bars, so you need to check the ingredients before buying any of those products.
Q2) Is it OK if the protein-powder I have contains sweetening agents that are not natural?
I think you can probably tell the answer to that question on your own. The answer is no. Artificial sweetening agents are poisonous and should be avoided. They affect your mind, your metabolic rate, and even organs such as the liver. Stay away from any sweetener that isn’t natural.
Speaking of sweeteners, if you’re drinking colas, you should be able to lose ten pounds quickly just by cutting them out of your life.
Q3） I don’t get it: if the soft drink is calorie-free, how can it be bad?
When it’s all said and done, the food that has artificial sweeteners is bad for you. In fact, you’ll be better off using the equivalent products that have sugar. Again, the big risk here is you liver. If you spend all your time drinking diet sodas, you’re going to do a lot of harm to it. This is why I steer people toward all natural alternatives to sugar-free food products. These will get the job done without putting your internal organs at risk.
Q4） I heard you talk about how some dairy products are good and others are bad. What does this mean?
Pasteurized dairy products make you fat. That’s the simple truth. You need to start using raw dairy products.
Q5) I have a problem footing the bill for all the organic food you want me to buy. I’m not sure if it’s going to make much of a difference in my program. Will it?
Here we go back to the liver again. All the chemical sprays used on foods to kill bugs are bad for your liver. All the drugs and hormonal additives fed to cattle make things worse for your liver too. When you liver gets stopped up, you’re going to have fat-burning problems and even increase the amount of fat in your body. The answer is yes. If you want to build a healthy lifestyle, you’re going to have to make the switch to organically produced foods.
Q6) Which fat burning supplement do you recommend?
You should not be taking any of the fat burning supplements that are on the market. Even if you get some metabolic stimulation from taking the pills, you need to beware because most people will start gaining weight as soon as they get off the pills. To avoid problems with your metabolism, skip the pill intake and start eating healthy proteins during the day.
Q7) Tell me more about the food that is poisonous to the body and how to spot them.
If you want to get a real shock, just study what is in the food that most people are eating these days. You’ll find chemicals directly or indirectly added to almost everything at your typical supermarket. The worst things to look for are the hydrogenated oils and high-fructose corn syrup that are in many products. Look for these offenders in processed food, much of which comes in packaged goods that are intended to keep them “fresh.” The problem is that these ingredients contribute to the accumulation of excess fat and are contrary to the fitness goals most people have.
Here are some of the physiological questions I get…
Q8) Does your program cover what food to eat to maintain a good metabolic response in the body?
Yes. Your metabolism is directly related to the food you eat. When your metabolism isn’t working properly, you have lost an important ally in the battle to improve your body composition. I include training tools that help you learn what kinds of food contribute to fat burning and what kind of foods build fat. Fat Loss Factor is designed to teach people to have an overall healthy lifestyle.
Q9) Is a fat-free regimen a good way to get started on weight loss?
No. In fact, you will probably find examples all around you where people on that kind of diet have actually gained weight. The important thing to do is make sure you get the good kind of fat to keep your body running right. It seems weird that you have to include fat in your diet in order to lose fat, but it’s true. Also stay with natural fats, not the poison that comes with the fries and burgers at the fast food restaurant.
Q10) I have read Fat Loss Factor and now I recognize that I need to do something to boost my energy. What do you recommend?
Try some naturally raised whole eggs, dark poultry meat, and health fat.
Q11) What is involved in learning my metabolism type and is it something I need to know?
Typing your metabolism is the process of learning how you respond to different kinds of food. By learning what foods give your body the best results, you can target your nutrition plan accordingly. You need to get as much efficiency as possible from every segment of your life, and this is one way to do it with your diet.
Q12) I want to stop eating. That will help me lose weight – right?
Wrong. You are going to find that your metabolism will adapt to the reduced food intake and then you will experience even less weight loss. In fact, part of the starvation response causes the body to retain fat, so this is not an approach that will work for you.
Q13) Why is it that corporations are allowed to market and sell food that contains dangerous poisons in it?
It boils down to cold hard cash. That’s what almost everyone is after. The problem is that some drug and food companies don’t care what the chemicals do to your body. It’s a shame too. Shouldn’t you be able to count on medicine being good for you rather than bad? Why can’t we have fresh food without all the toxins? The truth is that they will market what they can sell, and if it’s bad things people want, most companies will go ahead and let them buy them. Healthy eating won’t make billionaires, but it could make millions of people healthier so they can have better lives.
