Let’s get Diabetes!
Has facts that aren’t facts, but are plain wrong. Science doesn’t back them up. Logic doesn’t back them up. Most of what is there is pure poppycock, written in correct grammar.
I suspect that Michelle Obama’s genetics let her eat whatever she likes, in copious quantities, and not gain weight. I’m similar. I’ve put on a bit of weight after my pituitary failed due to an accident, but I’ve spent most of my life eating everything I could and staying the same weight. Others aren’t so genetically fortunate.
About 60,000 generations of humans shaped human evolution during the Stone Age. Perhaps 10 have occurred in the Industrial Age. Maybe 600 in the age of agriculture. Put another way, 99.something % of our human evolution and adaptation happened when we were hunter gatherers.
What do hunter gatherer’s eat? Meat. The fattest yummiest meat they can get their hands on. In percentages ranging from 80% to 100% of their daily nutrition. When they eat fruit it, it is typically during a short period of the year, prior to “hard times”, also known as “winter”. The plant material they gather is not dense in nutrition and is wrapped, generally, in hard to digest fiber. Hunter gatherers are not fat.
Hunter gatherer’s do not have “western” diseases. Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s are unheard of in their cultures. Yet, when they begin eating like us their rates of those diseases hit Western levels quickly.
So it would make sense, logically and historically, to want to eat as they do. And science backs that logic up. When you eat like a hunter gatherer you don’t get fat, you lose fat if you are fat, you are not lethargic, and your risk of many Western diseases such as diabetes and heart disease disappear.
So why would Michelle, and the USDA, and other parts of our government recommend this food plate:
Why would they recommend this really bad advice:
Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
● Make at least half your grains whole grains.
● Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk.
Why? Do they want us to get diabetes? Do they want us to have heart failure? Do they want us to be fat, lethargic and tired?
I don’t think they want us to do have those problems. But I think they care less about us than about their preconceived notion of how the world works. They treat nutrition like they treat economics – what works need not apply.
So my advice to the nation…. if you want to live a happy, healthy, economically prosperous life… DO EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT MICHELLE OBAMA and YOUR GOVERNMENT TELL YOU.
Eat this folks:
Fatty meats, some seaweed, and a few veggies
(minus the corn chip)
Whatever you do… AVOID what Michelle and her USDA buddies recommend!
