    Fats In summary, our choice of fats and oils is one of extreme

    importance. Most people, especially infants and growing children,benefit from more fat in the diet rather than less. But the fats we eatmust be chosen with care. Avoid all processed foods containingnewfangled hydrogenated fats and polyunsaturated oils. Instead, usetraditional vegetable oils like extra virgin olive oil and small amounts

    of unrefined flax seed oil.

    Acquaint yourself with the merits of coconut oil for baking and withanimal fats for occasional frying. Eat egg yolks and other animal fats with the proteins to which they are attached. And, finally, use as much

    good quality butter as you like, with the happy assurance that it is a

    wholesomeindeed, an essentialfood for you and your whole family.

    Organic butter, extra virgin olive oil, and expeller-expressed flax oil inopaque containers are available in health food stores and gourmetmarkets. Edible coconut oil can be found in Indian or Caribbeanmarkets.

    Proteins Every cell in the human body contains

    protein. It is a major part of the skin,muscles, organs, and glands. Protein is

    also found in all body fluids, except bileand urine.

    You need protein in your diet to helpyour body repair cells and make newones. Protein is also important forgrowth and development duringchildhood, adolescence, and pregnancy.

  • 8/14/2019 Eat for Vitality


    ProteinsProtein-containing foods are grouped as either complete or incompleteproteins.

    Complete proteins contain all nine essential amino acids. Complete proteins arefound in animal foods such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk productssuch as yogurt and cheese. Soybeans are the only plant protein considered tobe a complete protein.

    Incomplete proteins lack one or more of the essential amino acids. Sources of incomplete protein include beans, peas, nuts, seeds, and grain. A small amountof incomplete protein is also found in vegetables.

    Plant proteins can be combined to provide all of the essential amino acids andform a complete protein. Examples of combined, complete plant proteins arerice and beans, wheat cereal, and corn and beans.

    CarbohydratesCarbohydrates are oneof the main types of food. Your liver breaksdown carbohydratesinto glucose (blood

    sugar). Your body usesthis sugar for energyfor your cells, tissuesand organs.

  • 8/14/2019 Eat for Vitality



    Carbohydrates are called simple or complex, depending on how fast your bodydigests and absorbs the sugar. You get simple carbohydrates from fruits, milkproducts and table sugar. Complex carbohydrates include whole grain breads andcereals, starchy vegetables and legumes. Complex carbohydrates and somesimple carbohydrates provide vitamins, minerals and fiber .

  • 8/14/2019 Eat for Vitality


    Good CarbohydratesGood carbohydrate foods arethose that are still in theirnatural state, or they are stillsimilar to their natural state.

    They are foods that have notbeen processed or altered bypeople or machines.

    Good carbohydrates aregenerally high in fiber. Foodshigh in fiber will give youenergy over longer periods of

    time. They also give you asense of feeling full. Foodsthat are high in fiber help tolower cholesterol levels , aswell as aiding the body in toxinremoval.

  • 8/14/2019 Eat for Vitality


    Bad CarbohydratesBad carbohydrate foods arethose that have been refinedand processed. These foodsare not in their natural state.

    Most of the nutritional valuehas been removed from thesefoods. Bad carbohydrate foodsare generally loaded withmany additives, includingcolorings, flavorings andpreservatives

  • 8/14/2019 Eat for Vitality


    Bad Carbohydrates

    Most bad carbohydratefoods are usually verytasteful and arepackaged for easyhandling. However, theyare generally consideredharmful to the bodybecause they are noteasily digested and theyspike an individualsblood glucose level. Badcarbohydrate foodsinclude candy, bakedgoods with refined whiteflour, white pastas, andsodas.

  • 8/14/2019 Eat for Vitality


    Bad Carbohydrates1. Reduce your grain-based carb products in the diet (cereal, pasta, rice, crackers,etc) and focus more of the diet on healthy grass-fed and/or free-range meats andeggs, grass-fed raw dairy, and TONS of vegetables and fruits.

    2. Instead of the grains for most of the carbs, try getting most of your carbs fromvegetables, sweet potatoes, and a variety of whole fruits and berries (NOT fruit

    juices, which remove the beneficial fiber as well as other essential parts of the fruit)3. If you're going to get any grains at all, focus on the most nutrient dense andfibrous portions of the grain... the germ and bran... this means that the best partsare getting oat bran instead of oatmeal, and using rice bran and wheat germ(beware of gluten in wheat if you have any intolerance) by adding to your yogurt,cottage cheese, salads, soups, etc. This way you get all of the most beneficialnutritious parts of grains without all of the excess starches and calories.

    For best results with grains, try to stick only to sprouted grain products if you'regoing to eat any grains at all.

    4. To replace the void if you're used to consuming lots of bread, pasta, cereals, andother carb sources... try filling that void with more healthy fats such as nuts, seeds,avocados, nut butters as well as healthy proteins such as raw grass-fed dairy andmeats, whole free-range organic eggs, etc. Healthy fats and proteins go a long way

    to satisfying your appetite, controlling proper hormone and blood sugar levels, andhelping you to make real progress on fat loss.

    Whole Foods vs. Isolateand Synthetics

    Are all supplements equal???

  • 8/14/2019 Eat for Vitality


    NATURAL:Natural means vitamins as found in natural foods, untampered with any way

    that might change their molecular, their biological or biochemicalcombinations, or their action. This usually means that only the fiber andmoisture are removed. All labels of truly NATURAL food concentratesshould indicate the exact food source from which the vitamin is obtained.

    CRYSTALLINE:Means it had a natural food as its original source but was treated with various

    high powered chemicals, solvents, heat and distillations to reduce it down toone specific, pure crystalline vitamin or amino acid and hence is no longernatural. It no longer has its synergistic components, that is , its enzymes,co-enzymes, minerals, mineral activators, and co-vitamin helpers.

    SYNTHETIC:Means that in the laboratory the scientist has reconstructed the exactstructure of the CRYSTALLINE molecule by "putting together" or chemicallycombining the same molecules from other sources. On the label for eitherSynthetic or Crystalline only the chemical name of the single vitamin isusually given. Legally it is not necessary to give the source fromwhich the synthetic chemical is derived.

    Whole Food- law of synergy. This feeds and nourishes.Synthetic Vitamins , (Nutraceutical), lacking this synergy,

    require supra-physiologic doses to force enzyme pathways. This is known as the law of mass action
