It’s a sad state of affairs. The old-school nutritionist certified by a government-backed institution has been trained to deceive you about your food, possibly making you sick.
We have the same phenomenon with Medical Doctors. Everyone thinks they know it all and sees them as some God.
The Medical Doctor is trained in traditional medicine, which teaches you how to patch people up. However, they do not receive training in your ailment’s or disease’s root cause – nutrition.
You go to see them- they issue a diagnosis, and off they go to their prescription pad, putting you on the meds, and firmly in the hands of the pharma industry.
Unlike “real and modern” nutritionists, doctors are not trained on food and drinks’ effects on your body and brain.
They don’t care, it is what it is, and their treatment will hopefully fix you in the short term.
However, in the long term, reality looks different.
You can’t heal yourself from most illnesses unless you figure out what caused them in the first place. Once you establish the root cause and change your lifestyle, you will recover from within. Unfortunately, medication won’t do that for you.
By 2015, I was going to my doctor’s office every week. I’d walk out, armed with my new prescription, and off I marched to the pharmacy seeking relief.
The relief you get is primarily psychological, and your pain will only be temporarily relieved.
I’m not saying doctors aren’t needed – they very much are. They are vital to saving lives in emergencies and for major surgeries on the heart and brain, to name but a few.
The old-school nutritionist is dead
Their favorite saying:
“You need a well-balanced and wholesome diet, with all in moderation.”
I close my eyes and shake my head when I hear or read that statement. Sometimes I want to cry – other times, I laugh out of frustration.
All in moderation, and you can eat everything, is very wrong and dangerous.
Today I read this headline from an article in a prominent health magazine:
Rice Is a Carb You Need to Stop Avoiding Right Now
I skimmed the story while continuously rolling my eyes, crying, and laughing simultaneously.
They reasoned that everybody worldwide consumes rice – a staple and carbohydrate vital to your health.
That’s a ridiculous argument. Rice is eaten worldwide because it’s available and cheap, and it’s addictive as hell! That’s why folks who eat rice daily cannot even think about not eating it!
Rice is a quick-fix filler for your hunger. You feel sleepy soon after you’ve eaten rice, and then hunger arises again. Funny that, isn’t it?
That’s because rice is mostly water, with little to no nutritional value, yet is full of glucose that converts to sugar, making you gain weight with increased cravings.
They fail to mention you don’t need rice or the carbs it contains to produce glucose.
Then they mention the “vital fiber” in rice. They do not tell you you don’t need fiber to digest. That’s another food myth. Humans do NOT require fiber for healthy digestion or anything else.
Fiber is, in fact, an anti-nutrient!1
The article I refer to was published in a respected “health magazine,” and thousands of folks will read it and believe it. And that’s a damn shame!
The story’s claims are supported by an old-school nutritionist, after all, so it must be correct.
It’s a shame they insist on promoting such health-compromising nonsense, telling people to eat plenty of rice for a “wholesome and balanced diet.”
Rice, no matter what color, is a grain. It contains mostly water, carbs, fiber, some minerals, and no protein.
Wait a minute — no protein? Protein is the building block of human cells. Without protein, there’s no life.
That says all you need to know about rice’s nutritional value and what it’s doing to your body.
If you love your rice, sure, enjoy it. However, please keep your portions small, and focus on consuming plenty of healthy animal protein.
If you follow my advice, you will become healthy, lose excess weight, and feel energized and alive again!
