Judge Andrew Napolitano Loses 60 Pounds doing Wheat Belly Diet

Judge Andrew Napolitano Loses 60 Pounds Just By Dropping Wheat (Just Like Dr. William Davis Said)

First, the bit about that weight loss is buried in one or both of the videos—but you have to find it if you want, which is going to piss some people off (but you get what you pay for). There's also a mention of misled vegan, enlightened libertarian John Mackey (see, contradictions do exist) and Whole Foods Markets, but in a different context—which is a bit dot-connecting interesting.

I sincerely hope you have got the important distinction between deposition and storage and realized why its not nitpicking.

Causes of Strokes

Causes of Strokes
A clot that cuts off blood flow to a part of the brain is the most common cause. Plaque material or pieces of blood clots that travel to the brain are other common sources.

Overall, the chief cause of strokes are related to hardening of the arteries, which allows fatty deposits to accumulate inside the arteries causing a cascade of injury to the vessel walls eventually leading to clots that form inside the blood vessels. The slow development of atherosclerosis, which decreases blood flow to the brain, results in shrinkage of the brain and the development of dementia. A stroke can also result from bleeding or from a busted blood vessel in the brain as the result of high blood pressure.

Most CVAs are the result of atherosclerosis, hypertension or a combination of both.

Excess Glucose May Harden Heart and Lungs

key word

"may"

Here's a few more key words

Here's a few more key words you missed:

When researchers treated the elastin with sugar, they noticed a 50% suppression of the ferroelectric switching. The sugar-protein interaction mimics glycation, a process where sugar molecules attach to proteins and degrade their structure and function. Consequently, hardening of the tissues, and degradation of ligaments and arteries has been observed, leading to an overall loss of function.

but i didn't.

may still means may.

and what amount is excess?

"Co-author, Jiangyu Li, says, "This could be associated with aging and diabetes."

it could be?

Diabetes
"Premature death and the devastating complications of this disease simply do not have to happen. Those with diabetes are told to watch their diet, exercise and use drugs to better control the glucose levels in their bloodstream. My message is that the nutritional advice received from the American Diabetes Association (ADA), and typical dieticians and physicians is inadequate and permits countless of unnecessary premature deaths and much needless suffering. I declare, “Don’t live with your diabetes, don’t simply control your diabetes — get rid of it.”

The standard American diet (SAD) of processed foods, refined grains, oils, sugars, and animal products is at the root of the obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemics, and keeping glucose under control with drugs in individuals who continue to consume this diet will not prevent diabetes complications. It requires nothing less than nutritional excellence with daily exercise.

The SAD and the standard dietary recommendations given to diabetics promote fat storage. Excess fat on the body interferes with insulin’s actions; the body’s cells become less responsive to insulin and it is more difficult for insulin to transport glucose into the cells. The pancreas is then forced to produce more insulin to compensate."

disorder of insulin and leptin signaling

http://www.mercola.com/diabetes.aspx

I’ve simplified the various effective ways to increase your insulin and leptin sensitivity – and prevent or reverse diabetes – into six easy, highly doable steps.

  1. Exercise. Contrary to prevailing recommendations of shunning exercise during illness, staying fit is highly important in getting diabetes and other diseases under control. In fact, it is one of the fastest, most powerful ways to lower your insulin and leptin resistance.
  2. Eliminate grains and sugars, especially fructose. Conventional diabetes treatment has failed over the last 50 years partly because of its seriously flawed dietary principles. Eliminate ALL sugars and grains – even “healthful” ones like whole, organic, or sprouted grains – from your diet. Avoid breads, pasta, cereals, rice, potatoes, and corn (which is, in fact, a grain). Until your blood sugar gets under control, you may want to avoid fruits as well.
  3. Get plenty of omega-3 fats from a high-quality, animal-based source.
  4. Monitor your fasting insulin level. Every bit as important as your fasting blood sugar, your fasting insulin level should be between 2 and 4. The higher your level, the worse your insulin sensitivity is.
  5. Get probiotics. Your gut is a living ecosystem of a multitude of bacteria. The more good bacteria you have, the stronger your immunity and the better your overall function will be. Optimize your gut flora by consuming fermented foods like natto, miso, kefir, raw organic cheese, and cultured vegetables. You may also take a high-quality probiotic supplement.

I don't know. How do you

I don't know. How do you explain the evolution of our teeth which are better adapted for a herbivorous diet?

Isotopic analysis of early man says otherwise:

Are we meat eaters or vegetarians? Part III

Nor are we particularly fast or strong so as to hunt very well or often...

Humans are clever. There are anthropological arguments that we evolved eating the fat that was protected by bone.


Human Mammal, Human Hunter - Attenborough - Life of Mammals - BBC


Three Men vs. Fifteen Hungry Lions - Human Planet, Grasslands, Preview - BBC One

I think the problem is the speed with which refined carbs are taken up by the body. Somewhat related to glycemic index.

Not possible to hunt and gather refined carbs.

My opinion is that we should trust our own bodies a bit more, listen to it and observe it. If a particular type of food makes you bloated or lethargic, avoid it. If you feel fresh and energetic after eating something, go for it.

More objectively, we have blood glucose and blood ketone meters now. One can measure one's own reactions to various "foods."

"But what Sussman and Hart

"But what Sussman and Hart discovered is that Australopithecus afarensis was not dentally pre-adapted to eat meat. "It didn't have the sharp shearing blades necessary to retain and cut such foods," Sussman says. "These early humans simply couldn't eat meat. If they couldn't eat meat, why would they hunt?" "

Am not claiming it as conclusive proof of anything but it is very likely that early humans had vastly different diets depending on what was available in their area.

Evolutionary evidence seems to point to a diet of fruits and nuts followed by a transition to an omnivorous diet.

To be honest the whole premise of lets eat as early man did does not make much sense to me. Lets study nutrition more closely and arrive at the best solution. If eating as early man (whichever version) did proves to be that solution then so be it.

I know the science of insulin causing hunger and deposition of fat and it seems to make sense. Except that in the brain insulin seems to have an appetite suppressing effect. As the science is inconclusive and still coming in we should be circumspect about extreme diets.

Disclaimer: have done Atkins diet, fruit diet, calorie restriction etc etc. The problem arises in a social situation. You look like a bit of an ass if you pass up all the pastries, cakes, savoury dishes and ask for a banana. And fortunately I'm healthy enough to enjoy the social aspects of food which is a big part of life.

There is nothing more enjoyable than working all day and then sitting down with your friends in the evening for music, good food and drinks.

Strawman, wrong premise. Keep it more simple and consider what early man could not have been eating.

Acute vs chronic. What are the effects of chronically high levels of insulin?

The Point

Is that ancient man would not have been eating the OPTIMUM diet but the AVAILABLE diet.

We are now getting to a time in history where we can find the IDEAL diet for each one of us. If it turns out to be paleo, good, if it turns out to be something else, no problem.

I looked around but could not find such a study. Can you link one?

An optimal diet will have to be based around the better fuel source, fat. We have the technology today to measure one's blood glucose and ketone levels. There are also more meaningful metabolic markers of health that could be measured:

http://samsnyder.com/2012/01/05/medical-tests-recommended-by...

  • Leptin: 4 to 6 ng/dL
  • Fasting Insulin: 10 IU/mL and below
  • HbgA1c: 4.5 percent or less
  • Glucose: 70 to 85 mg/dL
  • Free T3: 2.2 to 3.0 pg/mL
  • Basal Body Temperature: 96.8 to 97.5 degrees F and below
  • IGF-1: 90 to 360 ng/mL (normal for those aged forty and over)
  • Norepinephrine: 250 to 350 pg/mL (the lower end of the range is optimal)
  • Highly Sensitive C-Reactive Protein: less than 1.0
  • Triglycerides: 100 mg/dL
  • Homocysteine: less than 6 umol/L
  • Blood Urea Nitrogen: 17 mg/dL
  • Creatinine: 0.7 to 1.0 mg/dL
  • Uric Acid: 3 to 7 mg/dL
  • Liver Enzymes: ALP 44 to 147 IU/l, ALT 5 to 30 IU/l, AST 10 to 34 IU/l
  • Cholesterol: HDL higher than 40 mg/dL, high proportion of large LDL to small dense LDL

Try the...

"consume less calories than you burn" diet and I guarantee you'll lose weight. Funny enough, most people who claim that "such and such" fad diet worked for them were actually doing the CLCTYB diet and just didn't realize it.

Taubes

Check out Gary Taubes book, "What if it's all been a big fat lie". He goes into detail about how storing fat in the adipose tissue is a hormonal response to foods consumed and NOT a result of consuming more calories than you burn. The caloric balance theory is flawed on many levels. When you consume carbs your body releases insulin- a hormone which tells your body to store fat. If the body worked like an engine (caloric balance) why do some people get fatter than others who consume the same food?

I consume way fewer calories

I consume way fewer calories than I need and my weight doesn't move. Some days I won't consume a thing but water, just because I am mentally busy and the sense of hunger takes a back seat to the task at hand. If weight loss was so simple as just eating less than your resting rate of burn, people wouldn't struggle with it and could just cut calories and still sit on their ass. If you aren't getting all of the trace nutrients that are not in the food supply anymore your body will not take the energy from the fat stored on your gut. It will just be fatigued all the time and your body will continue to store fat.

I can also guarantee you that if you jump out of a window, you'll fall down towards the Earth and not up towards the sky. What else are you going to tell us? That the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West? Thank you for overstating a natural law as if you had any additional insight to add.

Which metabolic cycle uses a "calorie?" http://www.gnolls.org/3374/there-is-no-such-thing-as-a-calor...

http://www.bmj.com/content/346/bmj.f1050

Any regulatory defect that drove people to gain weight, Rony noted, would induce them to take in more calories than they expend. “Positive caloric balance would be, then, a result rather than a cause of the condition.”

Calories in - Calories out is so simplistic as to be useless. I mean yes technically, it is true, however it doesn't factor in your metabolism, how you feel, WHAT that weight loss is made of (fat, muscle, organs?), micronutrient content of food, whether the exercise is actually damaging you, etc. 1000 calories from a shrimp and cauliflower curry cooked in coconut oil runs much different than 1000 calories from McDonalds fries with ketchup and a shake.

Yeah, scientists, way smarter than any of us, figured out a while back that the laws of thermo applies to all living creatures.

Nutrient Utilization in Humans: Metabolism Pathways

Rubner's observations proved that, for a resting animal, heat production was equivalent to heat elimination, confirming that the law of conservation of energy, implied in Lavoisier's early experiments, was applicable to living organisms as well.

Not a Joke...

I ate Lunch every day for 6 months at McDonalds and lost about 15 pounds. 25 plus days a month I did this.

I ate a single Cheeseburger and an ice tea for lunch every day.

Less calories.

I am about 50. I think there might be something to the do not eat modern wheat thing. I have been experimenting the last few years on myself and my kids with it. The side effects are odd that we might attribute to it. Overall health, sickness, attitudes, etc. We would not tell that kids that we were doing this and we see the differences. I am not convinced it is as simple as it sounds however.

Well, it will make the Judge more glamorous, IF,

I hope, he runs for POTUS in 2016. I would certainly support him.

cut out any carbs and you'll

Spoken Like a Blood Type O

Type O's do well to cut carbs, and increase red meat (grass-fed), but A's turn red meat to fat and do better than the other types with grain.

We are all individuals, and one man's meat is another man's poison (I think that's a quote from one of the founding fathers...).

The problem is that the science of health has been corrupted by government involvement, mostly, and the forces that have caused the big pharma monopoly over medical education.

As a blood type B, I'm in the minority, which is another reason I don't want majority-dominated or political healthcare! And, type B's are often activists!

At any rate, guess who put grain at the bottom of the food pyramid? When I gave up wheat, my sinuses cleared up. No wheat or corn for me, but I like spelt bread.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Looks like you are using blood type as a substitute for astrological signs. Ridiculous.

I've never heard of blood type affecting health. It sounds just as ridiculous as astrology.
