How To Build Muscle And Lose Fat

The first place most people turn to for fat loss advice is a dietician or nutritionist. Rarely, if ever do they think of turning to someone in the body building industry – and yet, this is a very good place to go because you from looking at them that body builders know how to lose fat and build muscle.

If you don’t believe me, just look around your local gym and you’ll notice that the body builders have got the leanest figures. Their physique has as much to do with their diet as with their weight training program.

When you go to a body builder for dietary information you won’t be directed to a picture of a pyramid or the plate filled with bread and pasta. What you’ll get is straight-down-the-line, commonsense advice about which foods to eat to burn fat and build muscle.

Tom Venuto | Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle

To that end I recommend you get a copy of Tom Venuto’s program ‘Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle’.

Tom is a body builder and you only have to look at him to see that when he writes about how to maintain and ideal weight and build muscles he knows what he’s talking about and practices what he preaches.

We take too little dietary advice from body builders. While academic dieticians are doing busy-work and writing research papers, the community is getting fatter, faster.

But the results are in. You can put down the glasses. Eat and train like body builders eat and train and you’ll nourish the cells of your body and maintain an ideal weight.

Body type diet

In ‘Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle’ Tom provides his readers with a highly personalized approach to weight loss. The program is basically a body type diet, based on the premise that people of different body types process foods in different ways. For example, one body type might do better on a diet heavy in complex carbohydrates, while another body type might need a much lower carb intake in order to flourish.

Tom lays out a comprehensive guide to help you determine the best way for you to achieve your weight loss and body image goals.

His system teaches you how to determine which body type you are. Then he provides you with the information you need to design your own diet and fitness plan based on your body type. As you progress, you can adjust your calorie intake and nutrition as needed. This highly personalized plan is designed to help you lose more weight than in a generic diet program.

‘Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle’ – the nuts and bolts of eating wisely

Tom Venuto’s eating system contains the nuts and bolts of eating wisely. He delves into the facts about macronutrients and vitamins, which is more than you can say about the dietary guidelines published by governments around the world.

After sales service!

Besides the book, you can subscribe to Tom’s website and obtain regular information and reviews through his regular newsletter. Treat this as the sort of after sales service you won’t get from your doctor.

Think about it, how long it is since you received a newsletter from your doctor, or some useful information about performance enhancing supplements, or what you can do to avoid the latest epidemic swirling around the surgery?

With Tom, if you like what you get you’ll sign up for his bonuses. His web site will provide months of original information to keep you motivated and eating wisely. His web site features a lot of useful stuff, like calculators, recipes, and product reviews. The message forums are active and filled with answers and advice.

A word of warning

The amount of information will be valuable to anyone who wants to reshape their life and body. But you’ll only get something out of it if you’re fair dinkum about turning your body into something you can be proud of. If you’re a tyre kicker, or ice cream licker save your money.

‘Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle’ is 341 pages long! That’s not including the many extras you get with the package, and the ones you can purchase separately.

Also, being a bodybuilder, Venuto writes like a bodybuilder. This is insider information you won’t get from the Women’s Weekly or the Heart Foundation. Tom emphasizes the importance of attaining a low percent body fat. You’ll find he’s a straight shooting, no-beating-around-the-bush sort of a guy. You’re going to get straight forward information that you can grab hold of and run with.

Having said that and despite the importance of exercise in weight loss and bodybuilding, Venuto devotes most of his pages to nutrition facts. The cardio exercise and weight training are given about 25 pages apiece. Most of the exercise information in books written by dieticians is vapid and unscientific. If you want to know how to build up muscle mass and reduce body fat, ask a body builder, do what a body builder does. Become a body builder and build up your body.

A quick word of advice. Unless they’ve got 20 hours a week to spend slaving away at some highly specialized routine, all that’s going to happen to most people who do some body building is that they’re going to end up nicely toned. And that’s how you want to be, nicely toned and strong enough to do everyday tasks without breaking down.

On the question of breaking down, few people understand that one of the important roles that muscles play is to keep your bones in good alignment. So a muscle strengthening and toning program is going to rid you of a lot of aches and pains.

Another thing most people are unaware of is that if you want to see nicely cut muscles or a six pack you have to exercise your muscles sufficiently, but importantly, you have to get rid of the fat that covers them up.

This is where Tom comes in, the correct nutrition, plus the correct exercise leads to a body that’s fit and healthy and one you’re proud you’re living in.

If you’ve ever wondered about weightlifting, you’ll probably find the answers to your questions in the weightlifting FAQ.

The Bottom Line

If you want to burn fat and feed muscle you’ll get good value out of Tom Venuto’s program and his ongoing support. Tom’s detailed approach to weight loss has helped thousands of people achieve their weight loss and body image goals.

‘Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle’ shines as a guiding light to building your best body.

In the meantime stay tuned highly tuned and if you eat and exercise the way Tom Venuto does, you’ll achieve your weight and body image goals.

Ways to Lose Belly Fat

Belly fat is just one of a number of symptoms of metabolic dysfunction. In the words of Jean Nidetch, founder of Weight Watchers, if you’re over weight, you’re not eating enough, of the right food at the right time.

Being over-fat, regardless of where the bulk of it is located around your body, is also a sure sign you’re not exercising enough. Lack of regular vigorous physical activity, coupled with too much high energy density food and too little nutritious food puts it high up on the list of causes of metabolic dysfunction and increased body fat.

If everyone ate wisely and exercised vigorously, doctors would be sitting around twiddling their thumbs.

If you’re over fat there are some of the things you can do to trim down – at the same time improving your metabolic, musculo-skeletal and psychological health.

The Best Way To Lose Belly Fat

First up, stop eating so much. That’s what being over weight is telling you to do.

Second, lower your intake of the garbohydrates – flour and sugar mixed with fat. The garbohydrates are designed to provide you with a large amount of energy in the shortest possible time. They’re the junk foods.

Third, eat the right mix of fat, protein and low energy density carbohydrate (vegetables and fruit). If you were to base your diet on meat, fishy and chicken, mixed with vegetables and fruit, in a couple of months you’ll have trimmed down considerably.

As they get older, most people lose muscle mass and keep eating the same amount of food. They become fatter. In fact if you are not a strength trainer, whilst you may have maintained the same weight as you were 20 years ago, the loss in muscle mass has probably been compensated for by an increase in fat around your body.

Our bodies tend to accumulate fat in certain areas, based largely on genetics. They tend to lose it the same way.

Once you start to lose fat from your body you may notice that you lose it from every where. For instance the first difference you notice may be that the rings on your fingers become looser.

Another way of putting it is that you can’t spot reduce. The body will decide in its own way the places from where you’ll lose fat. Just keep in mind it may well be the case that belly fat is the last fat to go.

To lose fat increase your level of physical activity

  • Aerobic exercise will burn off calories and cause you to lose weight.
  • 20 minutes a day is good, 30 minutes a day is better and 40 minutes a day is best.
  • 4 times a week is good, five times is better and six times is best.

A heart rate of 120 is good, 130 is better and 140 is best for anyone around 40 years of age. As you get older and your maximum heart rate begins to get lower you can reduce this heart rate formula.

There is no “best” aerobic exercise to lose belly fat. Just choose the ones you enjoy most.  If you don’t like running, try cycling, swimming or working out on the stepper or cross-trainer. The best routine is one you can stick with over the long haul.  You have to find it enjoyable. On the other hand, you may keep up a regular aerobic exercise routine if you choose to break up your training with different activities.

Strength training may boost fat loss as much as aerobic exercise, but only if you do it often enough. You need an all round strength training program, concentrated on building up the muscles mass of the large muscles of the body. By building up muscle mass you increase fat burning.

Gardening as a good way to peel off excess body fat. If you really want to kick off your fat loss program spend an energetic weekend in the garden.

The conclusion reached from research indicates that people who have a dog are fitter and slimmer than people who don’t, the reason being that dogs are good at taking humans for walks. A dog would much rather go for a walk after work than sit down and have a drink!

If you prefer a more social environment for your exercise, join a group exercise class at your local gym or recreation center.

OK, so you want a six pack set of abdominal muscles. If you already do situps and pressups it may be the case you already have six-pack abs. The problem is the fat that’s on top of them stops them from being exposed.

Men who possess over 25% body fat are over weight. As a rule of thumb add 10% to this figure for women.

At less than 20% men look in pretty good shape and at around 15% they look trim and taut. But, to reveal the six pack you’d probably have to get under 10% body fat.

When it comes to losing body fat, gentle, relaxing and de-stressing exercise has been found to be beneficial. The best of the relaxing exercises is yoga.

Whenever your body is stressed out (due to mental or emotional stress), it responds with an attempt at self-preservation by stimulating the release of the hormone cortisol, which tells your body to start storing fat – particularly around the waist. This response is a throwback to the days when our ancestors had to survive times of famine.

Yoga relieves muscle tension and reduces the production of cortisol. It calms the mind, slows down the heart rate and reduces blood pressure. I’ve had people tell me that whilst it looks easy, and the emphasis is on relaxed, flowing movement, there can be enough work going on as you move from one pose to the other to cause you to break into a sweat.

In the mean time stay tuned, highly tuned, increase the amount of time you spend on aerobic exercise, strength training and yoga – and eat from the top of the Hourglass.

Miracle Foods that Burn Fat

Well, it’s not really all that miraculous, just simple biochemistry and healthy eating!

If you eat pure protein it takes more energy to digest the protein than is in the protein itself.

However, we don’t eat pure protein very often. High protein foods like meat, fish, chicken and nuts usually come mixed with fat. Of course you can trim off a lot of the fat with the meat, fish and chicken but not the nuts.

Robert Atkins popularised the protein and fat way of eating having discovered that if all you ate was protein and fat (meat, fish, chicken and nuts) you lost weight. This observation flew in the face of dietary advice from heart charities around the world that said if you eat more fat you’ll become fatter.

In fact what fattens them up is eating bread smeared with fat and sugar.

What Atkins wasn’t necessarily saying was to go out of your way to eat huge amounts of fat, just the fat that came with lean meat, fish and chicken and nuts.

There is no doubt that if you eat the way Atkins recommended you’ll lose weight quickly, just don’t do it for too long without introducing vegetables and fruit.

There are some vegetables what have a higher protein level than others, like beans, but they come wrapped up in carbohydrate. The good think about the carbohydrate in beans is that the energy density is quite low.

A lot of people know that the easy way to lose weight is to eat meat, fish and chicken with high water content, low energy density vegetables. All you need to exclude is the more energy dense vegetables like potato, pumpkin, peas and corn.

I’ve seen people live on this diet for a couple of months and watched a dramatic turn around in body composition. The fat just dripped off them.

Actually there’s no rocket or medical science involved here, it just plain healthy eating – meat, fish, chicken and vegetables.

The other way to go is a raw food diet. If you ate nothing but raw food for a month you’d come out the other end looking like a grey hound and in radiant health.

They say that people with any of the heroic, self-generated metabolic dysfunctions – like high blood pressure and diabetes – who stick with a raw food diet for a month end up without high blood pressure or diabetes. Imagine, food being touted in surgeries as the miracle cure!

It’s one of the great tragedies of modern medicine that food is rarely prescribed as a panacea and if it is, the adherence rate isn’t great.

Once you start to fill your diet up with the ‘garbohydrates’, flour (a high energy density carbohydrate), sugar (an even higher density carbohydrate) and then mix the flour and sugar with fat, the chances of getting fatter increase exponentially.

Having said all that, there are a number of other foods that contribute to weight loss more and others.

beans

Beans are a good weight-loss food.

They contain a healthy mix of protein and carbohydrates. Beans are challenging to digest, so it takes your body longer to process them. This is a good thing, because it keeps your blood sugar stable and helps you stay full longer.

But the real magic of beans lies in their fiber content. Fiber is like a workout for your digestive system. It keeps things running smoothly, and prevents your blood glucose from spiking too high. Plain beans are the best choice. Sugary baked beans or fatty refried beans can sabotage your weight loss efforts by supplying too many calories and simple carbs.

milk

Calcium is a proven fat metaboliser.

In one study, two groups of people were given the same diet, except that one group received extra calcium each day.

The extra calcium group lost almost three times as much weight as the other group.

You can get calcium from vegetables like broccoli. You can also get it from low fat milk, but why would you go out of your way to drink milk after you’ve been weaned?

 

green tea

Green Tea

Green tea has been touted as a dieter’s miracle product for years. It contains powerful antioxidants that reduce the number of free radicals in your body. Its modest caffeine content is enough to perk up your heart rate and metabolism without putting undue stress on your body. It is also a mild diuretic, which can be helpful for getting rid of retained fluid.

Green tea has also been studied as a fat-burner, and the results have been encouraging. People who drink 4 or so cups of green tea a day enjoy faster weight loss than those who don’t.

Water

Water’s gone out of fashion. Where I come from if you said to your mum, ‘Mum, I’m thirsty’, likely as not the reply would be, ‘Well go and have a drink of water.’ I don’t think there were any bubblers or water fountains at the schools I went to, just rain water taps. If you were thirsty you turned the tap on, cupped one or both hands and started drinking. Now kids only want to drink soda pops and sports drinks.

In an affluent culture there is always the temptation to rehydrate the body by drinking coffee (with two!), cool drinks, fruit juice or flavoured milk. The body just can’t cope with the amount of sugar being poured into it. Nor can it cope with artificial sweeteners. Have you noticed that only fat people drink diet sodas?

So, by default, water is the best fluid for weight loss. By diluting the amount of sodium in the body it helps to eliminate retained fluid.

Water improves kidney function. The kidneys need plenty of hydration to help eliminate toxic products from our bodies, those that we make ourselves and those which come from our food and our environment. When deprived of water, the liver is called on to some of the kidneys’ functions.

By drinking plenty of water you’ll allow the liver to get on with the jobs it’s mean to do, one of which is metabolizing fat.

Surprisingly people often reach for something to eat when in fact they’re thirsty. And when the something you eat is made out of fat and sugar, you can put into your body 15% of your daily energy intake in one confectionery bar.

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and if you want to improve your health and get back closer to your ideal weight, eat from the top of the Hourglass.

How To Eat Healthy

There was a time in my life when I’d switched jobs, was living on my own, working long hours and stressing out. I was eating the wrong food (though I didn’t know it at the time). I ended up fat and crook. It was not a good feel.

I was working in an environment where I was obliged to preach the mantra of ‘eat more bread and pasta’. In an Epaminondas sort of a way I took my own advice. I kept eating ‘dat bread and de pasta’. It nearly did me in.

A friend recommended I visit a naturopath, which I did. It changed my life.

The naturopath said ‘Stop eating anything with wheat in it for a few days and see what happens.’ I followed his advice. 36 hours later I woke up at 6am, bright eyed and bushy tailed for the first time in a year; the fog had lifted.

Once I cut out the wheat flour, my health started improving and weight started to peel off.

To cut a long story short, I put on my thinking cap and developed the concept of the Hourglass Diet, where the good food is at the top of the hourglass and the junk and poison is at the bottom.

Hourglass Diet

The Hourglass Diet

There are some unique features of the Hourglass Diet, among them the seven food zones and 22 food groups all neatly colour coded so you know immediately when you’re eating good food and when you’re eating junk.

Unlike other diet books The Hourglass Diet is not padded out with recipes. If you want recipes buy a magazine next time you’re at the super market or watch Master Chef, Iron Chef or Jamie, Gordon, Nigella, or Hestor …

The Hourglass Diet takes a critical look at other diet plans and concepts. With respect to the Pyramid have you noticed that the food that’s not good for you (chocolate, ice-cream, licorice …) is at the top of the Pyramid? It’s upside down!

The American Department of Agriculture has just developed a new model called My Plate but it’s the same old same old you’d expect from a committee of skinny dieticians – eat more bread and pasta.

In the grand scheme of healthy eating, the Glycemic Index is a side show, principally because the low GI bar has been set too high. As for the dietetic profession, there are too many people sharing pillow talk with the world’s largest manufacturers and purveyors of junk food.

The Hourglass Diet has one of the best junk food definitions you’ll ever see. No punch is pulled. In most diet books ‘junk food’ is the food that dares not speak its name for fear of giving offense to the junk food providers.

You’ll be amazed how much junk food out there is masquerading as good food. While the fat police were telling everyone to eat ’97% fat free’ and drink ‘skinny’ milk, the ‘garbohydrates’ snuck through on the inside and fattened everyone up.

‘Garbohydrates’? You won’t have heard of this term before but it describes the foods that are combinations of fat, flour, sugar and fried potato.

When the history of obesity is finally written, just remember where you first heard about the ‘garbohydrates’.

Most diet books are too simplistic; they’re just glorified sermons telling you to eat like either a sparrow or a rabbit.

However, for many people, eating to nourish the cells of the body without fattening themselves up is more complicated than that. For instance, if you can’t come to an understanding of why you’re not eating wisely you’ll just end up on the diet roller coaster, losing weight, gaining weight, losing weight, gaining weight … Or you’ll thrash yourself on the treadmill or the stepper as a way of burning off excess calories. Whatever, where I come from it’s called the rhythm method of girth control!

The Hourglass Diet overcomes the fat/thin/fat dilemma with the inclusion of a section on satisfying the inner hunger. You can’t satisfy the inner hunger by eating.

In a nutshell, what the Hourglass Diet does is set out the principles of healthy eating and once you’ve digested those principles, the recipes will look after themselves.

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and eat from the top of the Hourglass.

Eating Right With the Hourglass Diet

You want to be eating right, right?

The Hourglass Diet will teach you all about eating right. It’s a unique model for healthy eating in a junk food world.

You’ll learn how to nourish the cells of your body without fattening yourself up.

The Diet Pyramid in all its forms is a limp and useless tool. Plagued by interference in its design by the manufactured food industry, it encourages people to eat too much refined cereals and drink too much milk. It doesn’t come down hard enough on junk food, particularly the ‘garbohydrates’ – the foods that fatten you upo; the foods containing combinations of fat, flour, sugar and potato.

Unlike the Diet Pyramid, the Hourglass Diet is focused on getting you to eat from the top of the Hourglass where vegetables and fruit, together with meat, fish and chicken are located. If you’re a vegetarian you’ll be able to make do without the meat, fish and chicken.

Eating Right

Eating right with the Hourglass dietThe Hourglass Diet will get you fired up, eating right and eating less of the garbohydrates

Today’s the big day for you to discover a Healthy Diet Plan

There was a time in my life when I’d switched jobs, was living on my own, working long hours and stressing out. My exercise program had fallen into a black hole and I was eating the wrong food (though I didn’t know it at the time). I ended up fat and crook. It was not a good feel.

I was working in an environment where I was obliged to preach the mantra of ‘eat more bread and pasta’. In an Epaminondas sort of a way I took my own advice. I kept eating dat bread and pasta. It nearly did me in.

A friend, Rita recommended I visit a naturopath, which I did. It changed my life

The naturopath said ‘Stop eating anything with wheat in it for a few days and see what happens.’ I followed his advice. 36 hours later I woke up at 6am, bright eyed and bushy tailed for the first time in a year; the fog had lifted.

Once I cut out the wheat flour – my health started improving and weight started to peel off (though not of course without me renewing my commitment to exercise.)

Out of the ashes came the Hourglass Diet

To cut a long story short, I put my thinking cap on and developed the concept of the Hourglass Diet, where the good food is at the top of the hourglass and the junk and poison is at the bottom.

I don’t think the diet pyramid model is the best model for eating wisely in a junk food world. In fact there’s a lot of junk food masquerading as good food in the diet pyramid. Also, have you noticed that the food that’s not good for you (chocolate, ice-cream, licorice …) is at the top of the pyramid. It’s upside down!

The American Department of Agriculture has just developed a new model called My Plate but it’s the same old same old vapid and torpid stuff you’d expect from a committee.

You’ll get the full lowdown on the Glycemic Index Sideshow, and discover the truth about the Heart Foundation’s Tick program. You’ll be raise your eyebrows when you find out how the dietetic industry is sharing pillow talk with the world’s largest manufacturers and purveyors of junk food.

What’s Unique About the Hourglass Diet?

There are some unique features of the Hourglass Diet, among them the seven food zones and 22 food groups all neatly colour coded so you know immediately when you’re eating good food and when you’re eating junk.

I think you’ll like the garbohydrate concept. It describes manufactured foods that are combinations of fat, flour, sugar and potato. Once you’ve grasped it you’ll know how to avoid the junk foods.

Unlike other diet books this one is not padded out with recipes. If you want recipes buy a magazine next time you’re at the super market or watch Master Chef, Iron Chef or Jamie, Gordon, Nigella, or Hestor …

Junk Food

what is junk food

What is junk food?

The Hourglass Diet has one of the best junk food definitions you’ll ever see. No punch is pulled. In most diet books ‘junk food’ is the food that dares not speak its name.

You’ll be amazed how much junk food out there is masquerading as good food. While the fat police were telling everyone to eat ‘97% fat free’ and drink ‘skinny’ milk, the garbohydrates snuck through on the inside and fattened everyone up.

As for low fat milk, at less that 4% fat direct from the udder, milk is already low fat. But why would you be drinking milk after you’ve been weaned?

As with most of the personally-generated body system dysfunctions, when it comes to obesity it is unlikely that the cause of the problem is the most obvious suspect.

When the history of obesity is finally written, just remember where you first heard about the garbohydrates.

Satisfying the Inner Hunger

Another unique feature of the book is the section on satisfying the inner hunger. You can’t satisfy the inner hunger by eating.

Most diet books are too simplistic; they’re just glorified sermons telling you to eat like either a sparrow or a rabbit.

However, for many people, eating to nourish the cells of the body without fattening themselves up is more complicated than that. For instance, if you can’t come to an understanding of why you’re not eating wisely you’ll just end up on the diet roller coaster, losing weight, gaining weight, losing weight, gaining weight … Or the only way to maintain an ideal weight is to thrash yourself on the treadmill or the stepper. Whatever; where I come from it’s called the rhythm method of girth control!

My mother used to say, ‘Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves.’ What the Hourglass Diet does is set out the principles of healthy eating and once you’ve digested those principles, like the pennies, the recipes will look after themselves.

Aerobic Exercise + Hourglass Diet = Good Metabolic Health

There’s also a section on exercise. Most of the diet books fall short in the exercise department. If you purchase a copy of the Hourglass Diet you’ll also receive a copy of the Aerabyte Aerobic Fitness Prescription ebook.

If you’re planning on improving your metabolic health, not only do you need to eat wisely, it’s also wise to boost the amount of aerobic exercise you do each week. The Heart Foundation’s ambling-around-the-block-for-ten-minutes-three-times-a-day exercise program isn’t going to do much for your weight or your metabolic system.

I concede that a good strength training program is an essential part of a weight management program but for now you’ll have to get that from the Complete Fitness Program.

A Healthy Diet Plan and The Law of Too Much and Too Little

Most people don’t eat enough, of the right food at the right time.
Jean Nidetch, Founder of Weight Watchers

For people with body system dysfunction there is a universal law that applies probably 80% of the time. It’s the law of too much and too little.

Too little

What are you eating too little of? Probably the essential nutrients.

What are you doing too little of? Vigorous aerobic physical activity.

Too much

What are you eating too much of? Start with flour, sugar, soda pop and milk.

What are you doing too much of? Sitting on your back side.

You’ll know there’s something wrong with one or more of the key body systems from the simple symptoms you experience. You get headaches, a crook guts, piles, itchiness, tiredness, elevated blood pressure and you’re putting on fat. Your blood fats, insulin and blood sugars are deviating away from the norm. These aren’t life threatening diseases, just symptoms that one or more of your body systems has become dysfunctional.

The good news is that you can fix it up, with the expenditure of a bit of time, effort and money.

Whilst a visit to the doctor to make sure you’re not at death’s door is a useful thing to do, you can be reasonably certain that if your doctor is not particularly enlightened in these matters , you’ll be sent off for more tests and a prescription for a chemical to mask the symptoms of the complaint.

That’s junk medicine.

I can assure you that the tablet the doctor prescribes for the dysfunctions caused by lack of aerobic fitness, won’t improve your aerobic fitness. The tablet they give you to mask the symptoms of chromium deficiency or glycoprotein deficiency won’t be as good for you as chromium or glycoproteins.

Healthy Exercise Plan

If you suffer from a particular body system dysfunction that won’t go away, or is resisting treatment take a look at what you’re doing – we do to much sitting down and too little vigorous exercise. To fix the problems caused by lack of physical activity! Simple. Get 800 aerabytes a week and you’ll be jumping out of your skin. Pretty simple really.

Healthy Diet Plan

If you’ve got symptoms of body system dysfunction it maybe because your body is struggling nutritionally or there are things that you’re eating that don’t agree with you. The most common culprits are wheat flour, sugar, and milk. Go without them for a month and see what happens. You could be quite surprised. Like the many Eskimos, North American Indians and Australian aborigines who’ve come before you, you won’t die from a lack of flour, sugar and milk.

On the other hand you may be lacking some of the essential vitamins, minerals, fats (omega 3 etc) and glycoproteins.

Based on the health assessments I give to people, I’ve formed the opinion that unless we’re particularly diligent, we don’t get the essential building blocks of nutrition out of our diets. If you’re crook, your diet is a good place to look first. Your body is struggling because it’s not getting the right nutrition.

For that reason I encourage people to supplement their diet with vitamins, essential fats (particularly (omega 3), minerals and glycoproteins.

The text for today’s sermon comes from Kelloggs’ website where on one of their websites they describe the virtue of eating a breakfast based on flour, sugar, sodium, chocolate and milk.

‘Kellogg Company was founded on a commitment to nutrition. This commitment remains at the core of our business today. With more than 100 ready-to-eat cereals around the world, consumers count on Kellogg for great-tasting, convenient and affordable choices that meet their nutrition needs.’

Of course what you won’t read on the Kelloggs’ site, or any other site run by the manufactured food industry is the virtue of having either a decent, unsweetened, cooked or uncooked breakfast.

In fact you won’t even get this off the dietician association websites who still think that a piece of toast, a few breakfast biscuits and a glass of orange juice is a decent breakfast.

Some time ago a mate of mine suggested that I warn people off shopping from the inside aisles of super markets for a week. I think that’s good advice. No-one ever died from eating meat, fish and chicken, together with fruit and vegetables for a week!

The other thing he said was that had I observed that the worst of the boxes of breakfast food were placed at eye-level on a left hand shelf, close to the checkout? I hadn’t, so I conducted an investigation at my local supermarket.

In my own mind I had to decide what were the worst of the breakfast foods, so I drew up a couple of league tables, based on

  • flour content
  • sugar content
  • salt content
  • price

The table below outlines the sugar content of the most prominently displayed packets of breakfast food – by the far the majority of them being biscuits.

The reason for the popularity of this type of the junk breakfast foods is the Kelloggification of our diets. It’s the power of persuasive and persistent advertising to seduce fools and children, advertising fronted by Play School presenters and the power of supermarket shelf placement.

In my classification if it’s got more than 10% added sugar it’s a confectionery; it’s junk.

It’s a way of life being promoted by various sections of the nutrition community. If you look at pictures of kids involved in the breakfast programs in schools, you’ll notice them stuffing themselves with flour and sugar. No wonder they’re getting fatter.

And anyone who can’t make the distinction between the whole grain cereals – like brown rice, cracked wheat or rolled oats – and flour and sugar (and salt) baked up into a loaf or a biscuit, is seriously lacking in discernment.

The culture of flour and sugar breakfasts has become so well entrenched that few people ever stop to ask the question, ‘would I eat this stuff for tea?’

Low Carb Diet Plan vs Garbohydrates

You won’t have heard of the term ‘garbohydrate’ before. It’s a new word to describe the high energy density, refined carbohydrates, flour and sugar – on their own, combined and/or mixed with fat.

You can substitute the word ‘garbohydrate’ with the word ‘junk’. We’re drowning in a sea of junk food.

Incorporated in the text below is an indication of the energy content of the various garbohydrates in kilojoules/100gms. If you’re more familiar with calories, just divide the number of kilojoules by 4. You need around 8,000 Kj a day to keep the body ticking over nicely, less if you’re sedentary and more if you’re vigorously active.

Keep in mind that in round figures a carrot has 120Kj/100gms, a potato 340Kj/100gms and an apple 220KJ/100gms.

1.    Flour on its own – 1470Kj/100gms.

We don’t eat a lot of flour on its own. Few people are eating dry bread (1000Kj/100gms) these days or plain pasta (1470Kj/100gms). Any bread is usually smothered in fat and sugar. Any pasta usually comes mixed with fat.

2.    Sugar on its own – 1700Kj/100gms

The amount of sugar in our diets is enormous. It comes on its own in the form of soft drinks, sugar in tea and coffee, lollies …

3.    Flour and sugar combined – circa 1400Kj/100gms

We don’t eat a lot of flour and sugar, maybe some bread (without butter) with jam or honey.

4.    Flour and fat – 1700 – 2400Kj/100gms

This is dry biscuit territory. The softer the dry biscuit the higher the fat content. Plus most dry biscuits come smeared with fat in the form of dip. It’s a double whammy.

5.    Sugar and fat

The bit ticket items in this division are chocolate (2,200Kj/100gms) and ice cream (600 – 1000Kj/100gms).

6.    Fat, flour and sugar – 1700 – 2300 Kj/100gms

Foods based on this combination are the quintessential garbohydrates – biscuits and cake, bread smeared with margarine, peanut butter and honey.

7.    Fat and potato – 2,200Kj/100gms

There is a bonus garbohydrate, beloved of all junk food eaters and purveyed by junk food outlets the world over and that’s potato chips/crisps/fries, hot or cold. If you want to turn a 340Kj lump of potato into a 2,200Kj packet of chips/crisps/fries, cut it up into fine slices and boil it in a fat vat.

The recipe for fat loss

If you’re fat (let’s not beat around the bush by calling it overweight) your diet contains too many garbohydrate foods.

To lose fat from your body, cut out the garbohydrates and eat meat/fish/chicken with vegetables and fruit. Up your level of exercise and the fat will drip off you.

The basis of all good fat loss diets is the exclusion of the garbohydrates. If the food comes in cellophane packaging or gaudy boxes, if it’s a manufactured food, chances are it’s a garbohydrate.

Garbohydrate Energy Density in a nutshell

  • Flour on its own is around 1470Kj/100 gms
  • Bread’s about 1000 Kg/100gms.
  • Sugar on its own, 1700Kj/100gms.
  • Jatz cracker, 1960Kj/100gms.
  • Ritz cracker 2370 Kj/100gms
  • The plainest, commonest, ordinary, everyday sweet biscuit, 1930Kj/100gms. 100gms is half a packet.
  • Tim Tam chocolate biscuit; 2160/100gms
  • Chocolate; 2200Kj/100gms.

Lay Off the Garbohydrates

If you lay off the garbohydrates there is a good chance you’ll lose fat from your body.

In fact, the basis of all successful diets is laying off garbohydrates.

The Hourglass Diet

Being Overweight

Being overweight and unhealthy

There was a time in my life when I’d switched jobs, was living on my own, working long hours and stressing out. My exercise program fell in a black hole, I was eating the wrong food (though I didn’t know it at the time). I ended up fat and feeling unwell. It’s not a good look for someone in my profession.

At the time I was working in an environment where I was obliged to preach the mantra of eating more bread and pasta. I took my own advice. It nearly did me in.

A friend recommended I visit a naturopath. He said ‘Stop eating anything with wheat in it for a few days.’ I followed his advice. 36 hours later I woke up at 6am, bright eyed and bushy tailed for the first time in a year; the fog had lifted.

Once I cut out the garbohydrates – refined flour and sugar – my health started improving and weight started to peel off (not of course without me renewing my commitment to exercise.

Out of the ashes came the Hourglass Diet

Anyway, to cut a long story short, I put my thinking cap on and developed the concept of the Hourglass Diet, where the good food is at the top of the hourglass and the junk is at the bottom. Whilst I’m not as pure as the driven snow on the matter of eating, I stick pretty well to the Hourglass Diet. Take a look at it and see what you think.
