Juice=Soda and Here is the Proof!

We all know that fruit and fruit juice contain sugar. But, since its natural, it must be healthier. Drinking a glass of orange juice cannot be as damaging as a can of coke, right? From a sugar perspective the public has to be re-educated. There is a lot more crap in soda of course, but looking at diabetes and caloric intake they are about equal, and in some cases juice is worse. The data is just about as irrefutable as it comes. Soda and juices were sent to three different laboratories and the fructose-to-glucose were measured in 3 different ways. The data was reviewed and collated and showed that some juices (100% juice, no high fructose corn syrup added) were worse than some sodas.

I would suggest that nobody drink soda or juice and enjoy the three essentials: water, tea and coffee, cream if desired, no sugar. I wonder how much we could decrease diabetes and obesity if people just stopped drinking soda and juice? Tax the industry to death. Treat the industry like we treated tobacco.

Take a look at the data.

Skip Lunch?



Maybe not every day, but skipping a meal here and there can be a good thing. For example, if you skip lunch twice a week, this means that you will have eaten 19 meals instead of 21 meals for the week. Now, you might be hungrier for dinner these days, and may eat more during dinner, but not the equivalent of what you would have for lunch. So, less overall calories for the week and a chance to get out of a plateau and lose more weight.  Also, during the time that you are fasting you are burning body fat. Win and win!

Breakfast for Dinner

Well, I crashed my website a couple of days ago and I thought I would make a few changes once I got it back up, which is now! People often think that eating LCHF is limiting, but after a month or so of cooking this way I have broadened my scope. Tonight for dinner was 3 poached eggs (4.5min), extra cheesy hollandaise sauce, asparagus (5min) and skirt steak. Thought this would be a nice “first” post!Breakfast for Dinner
