Podcasts I like: Transition away from Processed Foods to a Healthier Lifestyle

I commute for my job and podcasts have really made traffic bearable. I will start posting some of the ones I really liked and that I think you all may want to listen to. After work, instead of turning on the tv , click on these links and listen to it. Listen on your laptop while you make your meals, or getting ready for work. This is a great podcast and an overview on how to go from eating the Standard american diet to a healthier one. Episode 83, Latest in Paleo: Jonathon Bailor, this podcast further discusses appetite, and fat burning:   Listen to the entire podcast as there is some great information, but specifically, if you click to the 19:35 minute mark, you will hear Jimmy Moore and Mark Sisson discuss fat burning. But, remember, listen to his advice in context. He isn’t just saying reduce calories, he is saying as you become fat adapted, you most likely will eat less: Share this:EmailTwitterFacebookPinterestTumblrLike this:Like...

To review the glycemic index ranks foods 0-100; the higher the number, the more it spikes blood sugar. 1) cereal (Golden Grahams= 71, Shredded Wheat= 75, Fruit Loops= 69) + orange juice= 52 + toast= 71) 2) eggs + spinach + bacon are all considered foods that do not cause spikes in blood sugar Take a look at this study, published in Pediatrics, 2003. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 3 test breakfasts-low-GI, low-GI with 10% added sucrose, and high-GI-on ad libitum lunch intake, appetite, and satiety and to compare these with baseline values when habitual breakfast was consumed. The type of breakfast eaten had a statistically significant effect...

Eat This, Eat That: Context Matters

Like clichés, nutritional “wisdom” is well recited.   Eat less, Exercise more. Calories in, Calories Out. Moderation is the key. Eat this. Don’t eat that.   We all have heard these nutritional pearls, but what do any of these ambiguous directives actually mean? For you? For me? I suppose on the surface, they seem reasonable to adhere to. The problem is, most of what is preached is so subjective and tends to lead to mass confusion. After months and months of being deep in the rabbit hole, I have come back to the surface to assess the scenery. And what have I discovered? My biggest observation is that both the conventional and the paleo camps have valid points, but out of context they both seem to be right and wrong at the same time. Wait. What? What I mean is, sure you can’t just eat unlimited calories and be thin. And conversely, [healthy] fat does not make you fat, but it can. So, what is right? What is wrong?...
