What I learned last month
In class, last month, we learned about Fatty Acids. Did you know that we need fatty acids (fat) in order to absorb and utilize our proteins, minerals and oil soluble vitamins A, E, D and K? Our heart only uses fatty acids for fuel. In the 1900s, our country was eating a lot of fatty foods such as beef, butter, and whole milk. These foods were not laden with antibiotics and hormones. They were not pasteurized and homogenized. During the time in which these foods were being consumed, there was hardly any heart disease. People who are eating a low fat diet are not absorbing their nutrients. There are many people joining the raw food craze, which I think is a good one, but if you're not eating fats with it then you're not going to absorb the nutrients.
The one fat that I found out that was a good one was "raw butter. "How is raw butter different from regular butter? Regular butter is pasteurized, which means that is has been heated and when oil is heated it is harder to break down and absorb. Let me explain. For explanation purposes, a fat molecule is about the size of a pin head. Heating fat means frying, hydrogenating or pasteurizing. During this process, the size of the fat molecule enlarges to the size of an eraser head of a pencil. This is hard for your body to break down so instead it just stores it as fat.
Raw butter on the other hand, is utilized right away by the body for energy. The fatty acid chain of raw butter is only three to four molecules long opposed to 18 to 24 chains long, such as olive oil or omega 3 and 6. The molecules of raw butter are small, plus by being a short chain they are used quickly for energy, you don't store it.
The class Tye and I are teaching is January 29, Saturday 10:30 to 12:00. I am a little nervous, but mostly excited. We have a lot of information to divulge that will be help you make sense of your diet, digestion, and overall health. Here is how the add reads.
Everyone is doing it.Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler and the late Princess Diana did it and thousands more are rediscovering and praising this important therapy that dates back to 1500 BC. Today it's known as a colonic or colonic irrigation. In this informative class, find out why your whole system, including your liver, lungs, brain, skin and immune system can be compromised when your colon is backed up. Topics include: *Digestive system *Carbohydrates *Proteins *Fiber *Enzymes *Parasites. Class also includes a demonstration of how food breaks down in the body. Leave class with everything you ever wanted to know about your colon, but thought it was too disgusting to ask. For more information visit www.fountainofhealth.com.

S U G A R
How am I doing on the South Beach Diet? I am doing well, again. What I mean by this is, I got off track, that seems to be my problem. I am discovering what gets me off track is eating sugar, flour or wheat. I start craving it more and more until I am boated, gain back my weight, and feel bad about me for eating that way.
I realize foods that are processed and contain sugar, flour or wheat makes foods become so readily available to the body it is like a drug. The body starts craving it. Over time our bodies become sensitive and even allergic to the refined carbohydrates.
When I stopped eating these processed foods, I started having withdrawal symptoms such as; headache, body stiffness, food cravings, dizziness, lethargy, chills, nausea and vomiting.
When we eat carbohydrates the pancreas produces insulin, which decreases the amino acids (protein) in your blood stream except for tryptophan. This process in turn manufactures serotonin.
Eating refined carbohydrates causes insulin to rise in the blood stream removing the sugar. When this happens, the blood sugar level drops below normal and you're hungry again, feeling weak, hungry, suffering from headaches, trembling, and craving more refined carbohydrates. This then increases the level of serotonin giving me the few moments of "that feel good feeling".
When ingesting substances, such as refined foods, alcohol, or drugs that increase serotonin, your system actually starts decreasing the ability to supply its own serotonin. Because of this process, the body will crave more substances, "carbohydrates," to produce more serotonin. This roller coaster is making people depressed. Maybe this is why so many people are on anti-depressants, when all they would have to do is stop the intake of the drug of sugar and flour.
You take poppies, refine it, and get morphine. Refine it more, get opium. Refine it down and get heroine. You take sugar cane or beets, refine it down to molasses, refine it down to brown sugar, refine it again and you get the little white crystals. Any substance that changes the brain or body is considered a drug.
I have stopped eating sugar and flour. It is very hard. Sugar and flour are everywhere and in everything. I have been drug (sugar and flour) free for about three weeks now. My cravings have degreased considerably. Seeing sugar and flour as a drug has really helped me to stay away from it. There are drug pushers everywhere. I have told my family and friends not to be drug dealers and bring the drug around the house or me. When I am feeling sad, angry, lonely, scared, or nervous, which will trigger my body to want something to make it feel better, I realize it wants the feel good drugs of sugar and flour. So I breathe through it, drink some warm tea, read, walk or take a bath, I feel better, not only about myself but my body feels better, not drugged out and bloated looking for my next sugar fix.
I haven't weighted myself, I am just focusing on no sugar and flour and I believe the weight will take care of itself.
Sugar and Cancer
Any thing we eat over and over again we will develop an allergic reaction to that food. Sugar and flour are in everything. Allergies are undigested proteins. Mood swings, headaches, joint pain, PMS, anger, can all be do to allergies. Two tablespoons of sugar compromises your immune system by 75%. When you first start eating to much sugar and flour you could have an adverse reaction, but when you keep eating the body will adapt and you will start feeling better eating the food then not. You will need more and more to get the feel good feeling. This is the sign of addiction.
If we don't stop eating things that make us sick, all the medicine, vitamins and other nutritional supplements won't make us well again 80% of your health has to do with your diet.
Studies have shown people who get cancer have had a poor diet, high in refined foods.
Sugar and Nutrients
Because refined foods have all the nutrients taken out of them, they take nutrients from our own body to digest them. The more nutrients that are lost the hungrier you are. Refined carbohydrates makes our bodies acidic, then the body will break down bone calcium to buffer the acid. This creates bone loss.

Lick The Sugar Habit by Nancy Appleton, PhD
Raw Butter by Organic Pastures and Coconut Oil Extra Virgin by Nutiva are available for purchase at the Sacramento Food Co-Op located at "S" Street & Alhambra and Whole Foods on Arden and Eastern.
It is best if you don't heat either of the oils, heating will enlarge the fatty acid molecule thus making it harder to digest.
For example: poach two eggs then add the butter, put it on a vegetable or whole grains after its cooked. Use up to 3 tablespoons a day.
