The Email… “Hi, I was told after two blood tests that I was “diabetic” and had to go on drugs to control it. I declined the drugs, bought a blood tester and after the shock of seeing 169 mg/dl (9.4 mmol/l) went on a very low-carb, high-fat diet. 21 days in and I have lost 16 lbs (7 kg) and my BG is normal. See attached trend report. Very many thanks for your web site. Mike Healey”

Diabetic or not, keeping your blood glucose level stops sugar spikes, better controls your appetite, stops energy crashes, a low carb high fat nutrition profile will also help with weight control.

Why you really need to hunt down and eliminate vegetable oil

The corporate industrial food stuff scientists have managed to produce an ingredient that that behaves like naturally occurring oils. These oils are very very cheap due to the enormous subsidies paid to the GMO corn, soy, rapeseed (canola) and safflower producers.

Further fueled by the demonisation of healthy Saturated Fatty Acids.

Seed oils interact with the human metabolism and the body does not know how to treat them, it treats them normally and uses them in cell construction, however they are far from normal. The manufacturing process renders these oils rancid and loaded with free-radicals which cause damage to our cells internally.

These industrial oils have no place in the human diet but they do produce huge profits for the corporate manufacturers.

Bio-Chemist Dr Mary Enig produced a ground breaking study which was buried. Her lecture presented here by Sally Fallon. it’s a bit long but a very important presentation.

How Vegetable oils are made. They stop short of informing the viewer that the heat damages the molecular structure of the oil causing free radicals, and that the oil is rancid requiring bleaching and chemical deoderising.

Butter futures reached an all-time high in Chicago as Americans’ rising appetite for the fatty dairy spread and rising exports erode U.S. inventories.

Domestic consumption is projected to rise 0.8 percent to 788,000 metric tons in 2014, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That would be the second-highest ever in data going back to 1965. Shipments in the first six months of the year were up 42 percent from 2013. Demand is rising as milk production trailed analyst expectations, while fat content, used to make butter, is also dropping, according to Eric Meyer, the president of Chicago-based HighGround Dairy.

Consumers have increased purchases for five straight years, while margarine sales dropped, according to researcher Nielsen NV. The gains left U.S. stockpiles in July 42 percent lower than a year earlier, USDA data show. Tight butter supplies are contributing to higher costs for buyers including Panera Bread Co.

“Ultimately, there’s good demand for cream-based products that’s tightening up the market,” Dave Kurzawski, a Chicago-based senior broker at INTL FCStone Inc., said in a telephone interview. “We haven’t had a tremendous amount of milk to deal with either, and the quality of fat in milk has gone down.”

It’s a hard concept for some people to grasp but here it is again.
Fact: Carbs convert to GLUCOSE in the blood.
Fact Glucose must be regulated within an upper and lower limit so that you don’t die.
Fact: Insulin does this regulation job
Fact: Insulin Primary function is to store excess blood glucose as FAT http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin
Fact: Insulin doing it’s job dropping blood glucose triggers an appetite response.
So the merry-go-round continues.
Replace carbs with healthy saturated fats and protein you will break the cycle.
The Swedish government now officially endorse LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) for health and weight loss.
The US and UK departments of health and agriculture are no longer impartial they are now owned by the corporate industrial food organisations.
Think for yourself.

Store bought dressings are usually made with lots of sugar and vegetable oil and preservatives. Mayo is very very easy to make with one egg and mild olive oil.
