These plant foods, commonly called "health" by experts, the media, and even the government, are actually silently harming the health of you and your family. But if you will continue reading you are going to discover why you should eat MORE foods such as delicious butter, cream, cheese, coconut fat, avocados and juicy steaks. If it seems odd to you, I will explain more in the article below.
Most people DO NOT understand the reasons... and the fact is that some of the foods I listed in the article title above can not only DESTROY your hormones and metabolism, but may also CAUSE you to get heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's, and even cancer.
Not only that, but as you will see below, there is a common plant-based food that you probably eat in restaurants frequently (I bet you ate this at least ONCE in the last week), and this common plant food is proven to CAUSE heart attacks! You will see what I mean as you read the article below.
We will also show you exactly what you need to understand to eat in a way that BOOSTS your metabolism, balances hormones, PREVENTS heart attacks, STOPS cancer from forming in your body, and assures that you NEVER get type 2 diabetes, regardless of your "bad genetics."
So let us get right to it...
There are 3 main reasons why wheat is a terrible food for your body and does more harm than good...
Reason #1 - Wheat causes blood sugar disruption, Glycation of your cells, increases AGING, weight gain & boosts Diabetes risk.
Before I tell you why wheat can actually speed up the aging process in your body, let us clarify some simple biochemistry in your body...
This deals with "glycation" in your body, and substances called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). These nasty little compounds called AGEs speed up the aging process in your body including damage over time to your organs, your joints, and of course wrinkled skin.
So with that said, what is one of the biggest factors that increase production of AGEs inside your body? This may surprise you, but high blood sugar levels over time dramatically increase age-accelerating AGEs in your body. This is why type 2 diabetics many times appear that they have not aged well and look older than their real age. But this age-increasing effect is NOT just limited to diabetics.
So, let us get back to how "whole wheat" relates to this...
Here is a little-known fact that is often covered up by the massive marketing campaigns by giant food companies that want you to believe that "whole wheat" is healthy for you...but the fact is that wheat contains a very unusual type of carbohydrate (not found in other foods) called Amylopectin-A, which has been found in some tests to spike your blood sugar HIGHER than even pure table sugar.
In fact, amylopectin-A (from wheat) raises your blood sugar MORE than almost any other carbohydrate source on earth based on blood sugar response testing that is documented in studies.
This means that wheat-based foods such as breads, bagels, cereals, muffins, and other baked goods, often cause MUCH higher blood sugar levels than most other carbohydrate sources. If you do not believe me, here is something you should know... I ran personal blood sugar tests on myself using a blood glucometer about 45 minutes after eating 2 slices of wheat bread vs. eating a bowl of oatmeal, with equivalent grams of carbohydrates.
The blood sugar test results of wheat vs. oatmeal:
2 Slices of whole wheat toast:
45 minutes after consumption: Blood sugar spiked from 86 fasting level to 155
1 Bowl of Oatmeal (equivalent grams of carbs to 2 slices of wheat toast):
45 minutes after consumption: Blood sugar increased from 86 fasting level to 112
As you know now, the higher your average blood sugar levels are over time, the more AGEs are formed inside your body, which makes you age FASTER. Clearly, the whole wheat spiked blood sugar MUCH higher than the oatmeal, and if you do not know, 155 is a massive blood sugar reading that will certainly contribute to faster aging if you eat wheat frequently...and most people eat wheat without even thinking about it at almost EVERY meals...Yikes!
Not only that, but the high blood sugar spikes caused by wheat also makes your body pump out more insulin which makes you pack on more body fat... Not fun at all.
These massive blood sugar spikes from eating wheat daily also cause damage over time to your blood sugar regulation system, harming your pancreas, causing insulin resistance, and eventually causing type 2 diabetes. I think we have a strong case against eating so-called "health" wheat!
Reason #2 - Gluten and other gut-damaging compounds
The topic of gluten is on fire in the media lately...But most people are confused as to whether there is any real health risks with gluten for the average person that does not have Celiac disease.
The truth is that even if you are not officially "gluten intolerant" or "gluten sensitive," there are hundreds of published studies that indicate that gluten can cause inflammation in your digestive system, and even cause "permeability" in your gut, which can lead to a health condition that is on the rise lately called Leaky Gut as well as other digestive issues and autoimmune problems.
Scientists theorize that the reason gluten is causing these digestive system problems is due to the excessive hybridization of wheat over the last 50 years, which has created newly modified gluten molecules that are foreign to the human digestive system compared to the ancient wheat that humans ate for several thousands years historically, and even compared to the wheat that your grandparents ate 50+ years ago.
Reason #3 - Antinutrients and mineral blockers in wheat
The third reason that wheat is terrible for you is that it contains what is called "antinutrients," which are naturally occurring compounds in the wheat plant, but can cause undesirable effects in humans that eat too much of them. One of these antinutrients is called phytates, which blocks the absorption in your body of certain minerals like zinc, iron, manganese, and calcium if you eat wheat too often.
Again, most people eat wheat with almost every meal (cereal in the morning, bread on sandwich at lunch, and pasta or bread at dinner), so this can cause a mineral deficiency in your body over time that leads to many health conditions.
Wheat has other mineral blockers and antinutrients aside from phytates, such as lectins. Lectins are another constituent of wheat that causes gut irritation. Yet another reason to minimize or eliminate wheat from your diet. There is absolutely nothing "essential" about wheat in the human diet...It simply does more harm than good...period.
Many people often ask me... "But what about the FIBER in wheat? I thought that is why it is supposed to be healthy?"
Sorry, you can get ALL of the fiber you need from fruits, veggies, and nuts, without the digestive system damage and massive blood sugar issues that are caused by wheat.
Although vegetable oil has a healthy sounding name, it is NOT made from vegetables... As you might already know, vegetable oil actually comes from any combination of corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, safflower oil, and/or cottonseed oil, ALL of which are absolutely terrible for your health.
In fact, that are downright deadly, and I am not exaggerating. Here is why...
Reason #1 - Vegetable oils usually contain deadly trans fats, even if non-hydrogenated
You already KNOW that trans fats are deadly, so I will not go into all of the science as to why trans fats kill you and DAMAGE your cell membranes in your body... leading to all sorts of scary health problems like cancer, obesity, Alzheimer's, heart disease, and more.
Knowing these facts, I am sure you already know to stay away from food that contain partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. You have heard that a million times before.
However, what you probably DO NOT know is that even non-hydrogenated vegetable oils (all vegetable oils are refined) also contain some trans fats due to the extremely high heat, solvents, and pressure they are exposed to during the refining process. And yes, this includes so-called "expeller pressed" vegetable oils as well.
All of this high heat and high pressure processing along with the use of hexane solvents actually forces some of the polyunsautrated content of vegetable oils (yes, even so-called "healthy" canola oil) to be transformed into trans fats and something even worse that we will talk about in a minute called "MegaTrans."
According to Dr. Mary Enig, PhD, and Nutritional Biochemist, "Although the Canadian government lists the trans fat content of canola at a minimal 0.2 percent, research at the University of Florida at Gainesville, found trans fat levels as high as 4.6 percent in commercial liquid canola oil."
And this is the garbage that the government and giant food conglomerates are marketing to you as a "healthy oil"! Do not fall for it.
Reason #2 - Vegetable oils contain oxidized "mutated fats" that are worse than trans fat & CAUSE heart attacks.
All vegetable oils contain oxidized fats due to the refining process and chemical reactions with the polyunsaturated fat content of vegetable oils. Expert Nutrition author, Catherine Shanahan, MD, calls the fats in vegetable oils "MegaTrans," because they are similar in chemistry to trans fats, but even WORSE.
And MegaTrans from vegetable oils are found in almost ALL processed packaged foods, as well as virtually ALL restaurant fryers.
French Fries proven to immediately harm your arteries after eating them:
Free radicals formed during the refining of vegetable oils create these "mutant" fats, which damage your cell membranes & chromosomes, and create massive inflammation in your body.
The free radicals in vegetable oils also damage your arteries, which can directly lead to a heart attack. Please be aware that this is not just a long-term risk of eating vegetable oils daily. There are also studies that show immediate dysfunction in your arteries, also called endothelial function.
Catherine Shanahan, MD, cites her book Deep Nutrition a study from New Zealand that showed that subjects who ate french fries from a restaurant fryer displayed immediate harm to their endothelial function of their arteries, going from a normal 7% dilation before eating the french fries to almost NO dilation at all (only 1%) AFTER eating the french fries. This is one thing that can cause a heart attack.
If you think I'm exaggerating, think again... Dr Shanahan also surveyed hundreds of patients that were admitted to the hospital for a heart attack, and discovered that every single patient that just had a heart attack had consumed foods made with vegetable oils with their last meal before the heart attack...Scary huh!
Think about THAT next time you order fries with that sandwich on the menu! It really is THAT serious. Always ask to replace french fries that come with most meals with side veggies, fruit, or a salad instead. That may very well be the difference between dying tomorrow or enjoying many more years on this beautiful planet.
Reason #3 - Vegetable oils cause massive imbalances with your Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats ratio
One of the other MAJOR reasons that vegetable oils are killing you is they are mostly made up of inflammatory omega-6 fats, while having very little anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats.
The healthiest ratio from scientific literature appears to be a ratio of 2:1 or even 1:1 for your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. However, most vegetable oils skew your ratio as high as 20:1 or even 30:1 in favor of harmful inflammatory omega-6 fats.
And worse yet, these omega-6 fats are NOT the innocent type found in nuts, they are the "mutant" damaged MegaTrans type that harm the tissues of your body.
This Omega fat imbalance can be YET another reason why vegetable oils lead to heart disease, cancer, obesity, and many other degenerative diseases that WILL shorten your life significantly if you do not cut out the vegetable oils ASAP.
As a quick note, the solution to all of these major problems with vegetable oils is to use healthy oils like coconut oil, olive oil, macadamia oil, avocado oil, and grass-fed butter, all of which are MUCH healthier than vegetable oils and do not cause any of the problems we have described in this section of the article.
You have heard a million times from health experts, bloggers, and on the news that sugar is terrible for you, but most people do not truly understand WHY it is so bad...
In fact, most people falsely think that if they eat sugar, they can just exercise a little bit harder that day or the next day so they can "burn it off" ... unfortunately, that kind of thinking will lead you to an early grave.
It is not as simple as just "burning off sugar" - it is about what sugar does internally to the cells of your body, and how sugar gums up your internal workings, causing disease.
Once again, I am not exaggerating here, so pay close attention...
If you knew exactly why sugar is so bad for you and exactly what it does to your cells in your body, I promise that you would think twice about eating that piece of cake, candy, sugary soft drink, fruit juice, or ice cream, or feeding them to your children.
Scary stuff huh!
Of course, you already know that sugar makes you fat, and gives you excess calories without any beneficial nutrients whatsoever.
To clarify, when we talk about how much damage sugar does to your body, we are NOT talking about tiny amounts of such as having 5 grams of sugar from a teaspoon of honey in your tea... Small amounts of natural sugar like that are not a problem.
The REAL damage occurs when you eat that piece of cake and ingest 40-50 grams of sugar in one sitting, or that bag of candy with 35+ grams of sugar, or that soft drink with 45 grams of sugar or more... Or even that so-called "healthy" smoothie at the local smoothie shop that contains a whopping 80 grams of sugar because of all of the fruit syrups they use in them.
Now that you know why sugar,wheat, and vegetable oils are killing you and your family, maybe you will think twice about eating cereals, breads, bagels, muffins, candy, and processed foods or fried foods from restaurants that are cooked in vegetable oil.
Here are some examples of foods below that you might be eating and did not even realize they are making you fatter, and causing diabetes, heart disease, and cancer...

It is not uncommon to see foods such as:
Mike saw this trend over and over again with almost every client when he first inspected their cabinets and the foods that they were buying that they thought were healthy.
What they do not realize is that it is these exact foods that are sabotaging their fat loss efforts, increasing their cravings, throwing their hormones out of whack, and CAUSING terrible diseases like Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Cancer.
