Why Sugar Kills
Check out the video on Why Sugar Kills.
So thanks for joining we are at at the office and Wellness For Life chiropractic in Cumming Georgia where we do a holistic practice we help people restore their health by addressing the chemical the structural and the emotional and today we're going to talk about the the nutritional chemical aspect and specifically about sugar so if you have if you have a computer while helping I'm gonna be showing you some graphics so if you can enlarge this you'll probably get more out of the presentation so here's the US sugar consumption from 1820 through early 2000s and it's always hard to find exact numbers because you don't know exactly what they're counting but we still see.
The the basic trend here and when I look at these I always I'm always curious white why does it look like this why are there why did it go the other way a few times it's kind of interesting because right here where there's a big dip around 1860 is the Civil War and then there's a big dip around 1929 when we had the big depression and then there's next big is World War two but other than that it's been a pretty steady Cline and today we're eating upwards of 150 pounds of sugar and processed sweet stuff per person per year and here's a little quote we are beyond question the greatest sugar consumers in the world and many of our diseases may be attributed to to free use of sweet food.
So when I see a quote like that I always wonder like when did they do that and this was in the New York Times May 22nd anyone want to guess what year 1857 alright so sugars not a new thing and already around 1850 they had started noticing health effects disease is being caused by this so if they were noticing effect then what do you think is going on now so we eat about 150 pounds per person per year that's about a hundred eighty seven grams a day that is almost half a pound it's like four-fifths of a pound per person per day and I don't eat any I'm at like a teaspoon or less so someone is eating my part as well and that's about 746 calories a day from pure sugar now what is sugar so a lot of.
People they think it's just the white stuff that comes in them in a bag and they say oh well I don't eat any of that so let's just take this from the from the beginning so sugar in its simplest form is called glucose that's the stuff that we have circulating in the bloodstream we talk about blood sugar we're talking about blood glucose and we're representing that with a hexagon because it's a six carbon ring they and another common one so the most common six carbon rings is glucose and galactose that we get from breaking down lactose and then there's a five carbon ring called fructose and this still has six carbons because there's a little attachment on one of these corners so.
These two they are what's called mono sugars there is just one unit for each sugar and that means there is no digestion required that's why they get into the bloodstream so quickly because they don't even have to make it down to the small intestine they get absorbed right after they leave the stomach and they're in the first part of the small intestine of the jejunum then they get absorbed so we don't have any enzyme requirements the glucose goes straight into the bloodstream and the fructose gets into the bloodstream but it can't get into the cell it's a different animal that's why fructose has less of a blood sugar impact because it has to get.
Through the liver and be processed through another pathway so these are the two types that we should eat primarily and we'll come to to the reasons why but in nature these occur primarily in fruits and vegetables in relatively small amounts then if we put two of these together we put a glucose and fructose together we have a disaccharide and this is sucrose that's white table sugar lactose is the in dairy products and maltose is a dice sugar that we get from starches and a starch is when we take dozens or hundreds or thousands of these little drinks and we hook them together plants starchy plants do that for us then we get a starch and when we break down starch it turns into maltose.
So then start just turn into disaccharides and they still require digestion so these two no digestion these are only going to break up if we have enzymes present so that's really important and we're going to come back to this and explain why all this matters and where it matters so the first way that sugar is a bad idea is that they're empty calories and what does that mean everyone's heard of empty calories and I saw one explanation that says oh well whatever you eat of empty calories means it takes up space for things that could have had nutrition and that's true but it's way worse than that so when we say empty calories we're talking about things to have been processed to the.
Point that have virtually no nutrition white flour is close to that but the worst month of sugar and high fructose corn syrup they have no nutrients white flour has a tiny little bit but most of the life-sustaining value has been removed so sugar meaning all these three things has nutrients removed but the body requires nutrients to metabolize this sugar in order for you to use that sugar and turn it into energy you have to have the nutrients but the nutrients would remove in the processing so where's the body going to get them it's gonna borrow it's gonna steal from the existing pool of nutrients than you have in your body and in your cells and if you start.
Stealing from other tissues if you steal from other cells you start getting deficiencies if you start having deficiencies you get degeneration and disease so we mentioned this before I'm going to make a big point of it a deficiency is something that you have to have that you're not getting here it's something that's essential for life you're not getting all right I think we have a question are these five questions all right that came quick lemon sugar feeds cancer yes it does and that is part of what we're getting to parents are diabetic or my genes going to make me prone to get diabetes you're gonna have a little bit of a Creed.
Disposition and we talked about this the other day you have genes give you a health reserve it gives you a certain amount of capacity to handle stressors so whatever amount your parents had you're likely to have about the same but if you don't eat the junk your risk of developing diabetes is basically zero and explain sugar in coconut water and raw honey so that comes back to the previous slide and we'll get back and talk about that those sugars are more natural they are the sugars that we should have but coconut water is a concentrated form of it raw honey is a concentrated form of.
It do these things have some nutrients and some benefits yes in small amounts they are part of a normal food supply for us in large amount they start burdening the liver because we can handle 2030 grams a day from all sources fruits and vegetables but once we start adding the high fructose corn syrup and we start loading on the tropical sweet fruits then we can overdo it with those also and someone had no carbs for six days and lost 15 pounds wants to lose 150 pounds so congratulations good start and just keep it up whatever you do develop a lifestyle that you can sustain in the beginning most of the loss is going to be fluid but if you keep it up then you're going to start noticing the.
Weight dropping gradually refined white sugar versus cane sugar very very little difference if you have a raw sugar made from cane sugar then like the little brownish little pale beige sugar those have a tiny little bit of nutrients so they're like that much better than the pure white but there's still sugar it's still pure sucrose it still does most of the issues given one or the other go with the raw but they're basically the same all right so deficiencies something we have to have when our getting developed degeneration and disease but deficiencies also lead to cravings because your body is looking for fuel and nutrients and the sugar is only.
Providing the fuel the body is asking when am I going to get my nutrients so if you keep feeding fuel you're still deficient your body says where's the stuff you get cravings and what are you gonna crave exactly you're gonna create sugar so sugar creates a vicious cycle where you never get enough your body is always looking for something more but you're never getting anything so that's the problem with empty calories and the end result is degeneration and disease so we're going to cover several different categories of reasons but this enough would be a reason enough to not touch the stuff again – sugar feeds your enemies who are your enemies bacteria yeast fungus parasites and cancer.
Someone asked about cancer so we're not going to cover it too much but I'll mention it so all these are simple parasite simple creatures they like simple food sugar is the simplest food there is and the more that you have in your gut the happier they are so the first four are just pathogens the cancer cancer is also kind of a primitive organism it's it is your body's own cells but it's kind of defective and it's it's a renegade and it thrives on sugar and it thrives in an environment even where there is low oxygen so the body needs oxygen to burn fat it doesn't need oxygen short term to burn glucose there it can use something called glycolysis the glycolysis pathway.
And cancer is fantastic at breaking down Shu and using it in an oxygen poor environment so one of the best ways to combat cancer is to reduce the sugar and increase the oxygen sorry oxygen oxygen oxidize your fats so these guys like the simple foods simple organisms simple foods so again this enough would would be enough of a reason so these were quick ones now we're going to get spend most of the rest of the time on one in particular and that's what it does to your gut so this by osis is when you have an imbalance in your gut flora you have all sorts of bacteria in there and there is a beneficial there's not really good or.
Bad bacteria there's just good and bad amounts so there's certain ones you're supposed to have a lot and then they're good and there's others that if you have a little that's no good but if they grow then it's not a good thing okay crickets gonna tell everybody in the coming over all right thank you crickets appreciate that so some of the things that have been associated with imbalances in gut flora is mental disorders autoimmunity autism allergies and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of conditions you've probably heard somewhere that the gut is the origin of everything and it is so true and the gut is also has like a direct line to the brain because.
Everything that happens in the gut gets to the brain eventually here's a few gut facts I knew some of these and I added a few and they're kind of mind-blowing there is more bacteria in the gut than there are cells in the ball and I research this on the other day and we used to think that were between 50 and 100 trillion cells in the body and that there were about 10 times as many bacteria and now they're saying that's not really true they did a more careful count in the last couple of years and it turns out we got somewhere around 37 trillion cells in the body and we got a little bit more than that like 40 50 ish trillion bacteria in the gut but those bacteria their collective DNA is a.
Hundred and fifty times more DNA in the foreign bacteria in your gut than you have in the human genome than you have in your cells so 70 as a result 70 to 80 percent all the immune cells in your body live in the gut they're not in your bloodstream in your cells in your in your functional tissue they're in the tube called the gut to defend you into balance against foreign invaders and they that's how important the gut is if your body allocates seventy to eighty percent of your immune system to it then it's got to be a big deal there is up to 1,000 known species of bacteria in the gut and again these aren't bad guys there is stuff like Ecola that is perfectly fine that performs useful.
Healthy life-saving functions if it is maintained in a certain number but once the conditions change and they start over growing now they can basically kill you and if the bacteria in your gut are sick so are you so now we're going to talk a little bit and let's get a little bit technical but bear with me you're gonna love this because it blew my mind when I started understanding this and how it relates to sugar yes question berries are low in sugar so how many per day okay berries are if you're gonna eat fruits berries vegetables are the best berries are by far a close second and fruits you want to keep to a minimum so the best.
Berries are blueberries raspberries and strawberries and blackberries so those four there's some around 10 grams of sugar or half a cup but they got tons of fiber and you can eat a good amount of those without overdoing it so this is what it looks like in your small intestine these are called intestinal villi one of these little fingers is called a villus and what actual food absorption is happening and if you're absorbing any nutrients at all depends on how healthy these guys are so on the edge here if you see they look like little teeth these are called entero sites these are the cells that perform the actual absorption and then they suck up the they ingest the nutrients from.
The lumen and they transmit it into the blood vessels and it gets into your bloodstream that way now each little cell here is one of these guys so this is one and Terra site and the hair is called a brush border so if you imagine each of these little teeth looking things have this brush border on them so this surface is really really fuzzy and if you have healthy and Terra sites they're going to have lots and lots of hair like this and these hairs manufacture that the cell and the hairs they manufacture and store and keep your digestive enzymes so if it looks like this you have lots of digestive enzymes to break down there to finalize the digestion of your.
But if it looks like this then you don't really have any digestive enzymes there so let's look at what happens when that's the case so let's look at carbohydrates so remember that disaccharides that's when we have two of those little circles hooked together so we're assuming that the starch has been broken down earlier in the digestive tract so the first step of breaking a starch to a disaccharide has happened and now we got these two unit things floating into the small intestine and a an enzyme to break down a disaccharide is simply called a disaccharide basis so that's one of the enzymes the digestive enzymes that live in the hairs so this enzyme is supposed to catalyze it's.
Supposed to make this happen but if we have an unhealthy gut flora that that damages those cells now we don't have any enzymes and we don't finalize that last step of digestion so now all that sugar is still sitting in the gut and it became comes food for all these opportunistic pathogens so if you have a course of antibiotics so if you eat a lot of sugar that's enough to get this process rolling and then from that point on if you keep feeding it sugar it just keeps getting worse and worse now you get a pathogen overgrowth and what are these pathogens do they have their life to live and they're having a buffet and whenever they're doing whatever their metabolism is doing they are have.
There's toxic waste products they have elimination just like like your body does and they are eliminating it they're releasing these toxins right into your gut and a lot of that gets absorbed and because you got isn't so healthy gets right into the bloodstream and starts circulating into your brain and most brain fog and most mental disorders and most autism is probably due to this mechanism so that's carbohydrates so we have a crappy gut we eat sugar now we get a toxic factory into God due to the carbohydrates now let's look at proteins so proteins are the digestion starts in the stomach that's why we have acid in the stomach your.
Stomach is supposed to be an acid that it's about a million times more acid than the average in your body and that starts breaking down the proteins into peptides so proteins are changed and glumly globular things clumps of amino acids containing hundreds or thousands of amino acids and when they start breaking them down they turn into peptides that is between four and twenty or something like that units of amino acids and the enzyme to break down the peptides into individual amino acid is called peptidases and if that works we get individual essential amino acids but again if we don't have this brush border that's really healthy then we don't have the digestive enzymes.
And the peptides are just floating around and now we get a deficiency of essential amino acids why are they called essential because you need them to live but we also have this overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria from eating the sugar and these pathogenic bacteria they release toxins that attack the intestinal lining so now we get a leaky gut your guts supposed to be really really tight it's like a filter with microscopic holes in it that don't let anything through that's larger than an individual amino acid but now that we get a leaky gut now these peptides are rushing straight past that intestinal membrane and now we.
Get allergies and if you have a leaky gut a lot of times you're not going to find just one or two allergies you're going to find dozens or hundreds this is the people who run a blood test called an IgG delayed hypersensitivity test and it comes back and they're allergic to 57 different things and they tell them oh you can't ever eat these things again well you need food to live but you can't eat those so the solution is not to avoid every food on the planet the solution is to fix the problem if you have allergies you also start creating systemic inflammation you start creating organ inflammation organ necrosis which is the foundation of the.
Start of autoimmunity and autoimmunity today is rampant we're going to do a separate seminar of that let's look at fat the pathogenic bacteria attack the gut lining but in addition to creating a leaky gut you also irritate this gut lining so it's desperately defending itself it's not healthy but it can do something it can release a lot of mucus so if it releases excess mucus this starts coding a lot of different things and bile is something that's released from your gall bladder it's like a detergent it breaks up your fat globules just like when you do dishes you have some some oil floating on top of the water you put detergent in and it dissolves them that's what bile does but.
If you have too much mucus this is going to cover up the fat globules so that bile can't get to it and as a result you can't absorb the fat either and now you get a deficiency of essential fatty acids so the excess mucus that could be if you notice in your stool if it's kind of bubbly or slimy and with the bile block and there's too much fats if you notice that your bowel movement if if it's floating or if it's light-colored or pale those are often signs that you're not digesting any other fats so just to summarize we ate some sugar we upset the balance in the gut oh so what's the big deal now you have a toxic factor in the guts that is spewing out.
Toxins that is spreading via the bloodstream to the brain you have a deficiency in essential fatty acids we have a deficiency in dimention essential amino acids and again what does essential mean it means you can't live without it deficiency means you've got a habit you're not getting it okay so your quality can cope it can get by it can survive it's it's amazing at surviving but you can't get back to health you can't function after optimum level you can't heal you can't do the things that humans are supposed to do and that's the problem with a lot of the things that we eat ignore them because they don't kill us fast enough if they killed us in a.
Few weeks we pay attention but if it takes 3040 years then oh well it can wait and you have multiple food intolerances for some people this turns into what's called a universal reactor almost everything that you put into your body you start having a reaction to because that leaky gut is no kind of barrier at all everything you put in gets straight into your bloodstream and you have an immune reaction to it and you start having a systemic inflammation which we know is the source of virtually all degenerative disease heart disease cancer diabetes etc so is that the reason for good allergy yes that's exactly a big question here is this the.
Reason for food allergies absolutely that is the reason and you can have these are not necessarily there different levels of allergies you can have an allergy that leads to an anaphylactic shock things like peanuts and shrimp you have a tiny little piece and you end up in the emergency room those are the most extreme form of an allergy reaction but there are different levels and some of them aren't necessarily allergies but their sensitivities these things they don't put you in the emergency room but they're creating inflammation your body is so we're not going to go on forever when I did this I kind of did them in order of importance so the one and the.
Two is pretty quick three it was a little more involved and four is the big one but because of how huge this issue with insulin is I'm not going to go into detail but we're going to cover just the basics then we're going to wrap it up and take some questions because insulin they have they have been there's an old saying that money is the root of all evil and no it's not sugar could really be argued to be the root of all evil as far as health goes and sugar releases insulin sugar leads to high blood sugar and insulin is required to take it out of the bloodstream into the cells and insulin has been associated with virtually every single disease there is.
At least every degenerative disease and every degenerative process and condition you can put insulin in there as a safe bet so we'll just kind of rattle them off and then talk a little bit more about that so these are not small things and these there's a definite relationship between every single one of these so insulin is related to diabetes inflammation hormone imbalances obesity so a lot of people come in and they ask about oh I had this blood test done and my hormones are out of balance and my doctor wants to give me this or should I go on a first good thinks about natural nature identical hormones and it's not that there's never a time and place for that but I would.
Say 99% of hormone imbalances is cause insulin causes hormone imbalances so putting in little bits and pieces trying to look at your blood work and saying he already need a little bit of this and a little bit of that then that's kind of trying to push the body into a box but ignoring the the real problem obesity we talked about the other day heart disease uric acid insulin is related sugar increases uric acid which is related to gallop they always blame the red meat because it has some things well sugar is the big one high cholesterol it's not the cholesterol in the food it's not the saturated fat it's the insulin hypertension high blood pressure stroke cardiovascular disease.
And here's an interesting one we're not going to go into detail but it feminized this men it takes testosterone and turns it into estrogen so the people the the men with the man boobs why does that happen to so many people what Newt moves yes man boobs are called moves that as people get up in age they become more insulin resistant and they all develop man boobs that's the sugar PCOS this is a big deal for a lot of women it's life changing its life ruining for a lot of women it affects as much as 10% of the population polycystic ovarian syndrome it is insulin in regular periods fluid retention the tea mood swings sodium retention.
Acne hair loss on the head and unwanted hair everywhere else so this side it's not exclusive but this eye is primarily men even though most of these fit both men and women these are primarily women and this is what testosterone does to a woman it makes you lose your hair on the head and it makes it grow everywhere else so I have an excuse I'm a man so we've gone from here and it's coming out nose and ears and everywhere else that's testosterone and so we it turns men into women and it turns women into men that's what sugar does they're two different mechanisms but it works the same way so this is where the grandkids get confused and they say I can't tell.
The difference between grandpa and grandma anymore which one is which right it's it's the cake it's the sugar donuts and soda and so all carbs trigger insulin no exceptions protein triggers a little bit fat basically none but we have to understand that all carbs trigger insulin and all plants are carbohydrates that is how nature does it nature takes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere it takes sunlight from the Sun it takes minerals from the soil and it turns that into carbohydrates no exceptions and all carbohydrates therefore our sugar like we said they're not necessarily equally bad the bad ones are the ones that are really high sugar really high starch.
They create a high insulin response so potatoes fries potato chips bread whatever it is made from whether it's wheat bread or rye bread or gluten-free bread it is pure starch and it will have an extremely high insulin as long ver chilly all bread has a higher insulin response than white sugar so when they tell you oh don't worry it's a complex carbohydrate don't believe them starches are ten minutes and away from pure sugar Brian barley beer we did a video on on alcohol so beer is the worst form of alcohol cuz it has alcohol and grain and someone was asking about boat meal and that comes in here as well corn rice folks these are gluten free.
Grains so they're better in that sense for most people but there's still pure starch now if I'm gonna eat any form of grain ever off of this list I would eat steel-cut oats and I would eat brown rice or wild rice there's still they're not nearly as bad as as some of the white flowers and grains but there's still pure starches can they be part can steel-cut oats to be part of a healthy diet yes as long as you keep the total number down if you're extremely insulin resistant like if you've had this go and if you have diabetes or prediabetes and you got some pathology and degeneration going then you might want to cut it out for six months or two or three years to give your body a chance to recover.
Because it's so carbohydrate intolerant that any little amount will break it and sugar can be chocolates obviously waffles muffins pop-tarts and what you're going to find is that as you start weaning yourself off of this then your taste buds will change this is a really really nice thing to write to to understand to realize that people think oh I I don't like the taste of that because it's not as sweet as this or I'm not used to that once you start understanding a little bit about habits and neural pathways and neuroplasticity you understand in which you can find out about them the other videos by the way and you understand that everything that.
You like everything you know every habit you have you learned to like it you learn to do that habit so if you just do something else for a couple of weeks then you'll make new neural pathways that have different perception that a different perception that have different preferences and before long you'll you will enjoy things that are 1/3 as sweet and then you go back to having accidentally about a cake at a party and you almost spin it out because it's nauseous lee sweet we had a question about noodles and pasta so that's right up here with the wheat and the bread there is very very little difference it is still a grain except they ground it up and then mixed it with water and turn.
It into a paste it's really the exact same thing grains are bad for a couple of different reasons they are starchy but they also are very different difficult they're very inflammatory and they contain things that further the the insult on the gut lining that exaggerate the insult on the gut lining so if you have a leaky gut and you're trying to restore it then not only do you want to look at the sugars and the carbs but you probably want to cut out 100% of the grains answer this list we want to add almost anything processes if back is depleted it is filtered bleached ground pulverized nukes you name it and because.
Of that it's the particles are reduced to the size where it enters your bloodstream very very quickly so from high insulin we go to low insulin and so these are the vegetables that you can eat these are the the car behind the plants that you can eat virtually unlimited I would just say if you're trying to get into ketogenesis there may be some of these that if you build up a mountain that that you could get out of ketosis but these are basically unlimited leafy greens non starchy vegetables like French green beans like 2 grams of carbs 400 but don't eat this does not include if you thinking green beans don't eat the ones with the big beans the peas the seeds.
Inside because those are starch and berries again we commented on this before these do have some sugar so these are not unlimited but you can eat them regularly in moderation and yet if you recall these will have primarily mono sugars that means they do have a little bit of impact on blood sugar especially if you juice them but they get absorbed so quickly that they never make it down to where the bacteria live that they're not going to act as food for that dysbiosis and then we have the foods with very low insulin response so this is if you try to reverse insulin resistance this is where you want to have most of your.
Foods which is fat meat and eggs there's there's more I just put a few examples but any kind of natural fats butter good quality extra virgin olive oil coconut oil lard from a healthy animal meat grass-fed meat fish chicken from healthy sources pastured eggs you can't just look at the label and go oh it's free-range because that doesn't really mean much anymore unfortunately so animal sources that haven't been processed and good quality from healthy conditions these are the foods that should be the foundation on your food from a sugar and insulin resistance perspective then you fill up with as much leafy greens and non starchy vegetables as possible they have an.
Occasional berry and you stay away from this as much as possible so the way we handle this because this can have all sorts of different effects in your body so we're going to run through just super quick for those who haven't seen it if you want to come up we'll do a quick demonstration so I'm not going to do the whole muscle testing if if you have questions or want to see it just go back to a previous video of the streams or one of those that we did separately on muscle testing so we can ask the body and it's not a strength test it's a neurological response we get a log or we get an unlock your body is an electromagnetic system it responds to different inputs so we can ask about.
Different organs that might have been affected so if we have an autoimmunity going on we might want to look at the thyroid and if there's a problem with the thyroid then this arm would go down we can look at cerebellum we can look at hand crius and those would be the most common places for for autoimmunity but you could certainly have enough damage that spleen or liver or basically any other organ could show up as a result of of this autoimmunity then we want to look at anything digestive and part of the digestion or the organs that part of the endocrine system because the endocrine system is responsible for stomach acid so pituitary has a me flex here thyroid has a reflux here and.
They're the ones that are primarily responsible for stomach acid other than of course the stomach itself which we can test then there's a couple of digestive points that we can test and then we have reflex points with a small intestine and all the different parts while the large intestine liver is kind of a digestive organ gallbladder is a digestive organ and if you're having there's the the endocrine portion the hormone sugar handling portion of the pancreas we can also test over here so through this we can kind of get an individualized picture of what kind of damage the sugar has done and then we can find out specific nutrients glandular extracts minerals homeopathics.
That your body needs to start recovering okay thank you so much so we're gonna wrap it up there in this office we are chiropractors we are nutrition response testing practitioners so chiropractic deals with a structural nutrition response testing deals with a with a chemical both the toxic and the nutritional part and we also do biofeedback and brain entrainment and and things like that to help balance the emotional aspect as well we use whole food supplements because all nutrition comes from things that have been alive and the supplements that we buy in the nutrition stores unfortunately are just synthetic fractions they're made in test tubes.
They're made by pharmaceutical companies they call nutraceuticals so some people kind of brag and say oh this is nutraceutical quality that's not a good thing that means it was never alive it came from a test tube it probably made from corn starch or glucose and it is not sustaining life and we'll stay on that that concludes our presentation we're going to come back probably and do a separate one on insulin our next one is going to be on Monday or next seminar for you guys and for the people on line and it's going to be on anxiety and depression it is on Monday June 11th and I don't know offhand what time that is whatever we do on Monday.
Question there's two Swedes okay on on Monday June 11th it is at 2:00 p.m. so that would be an 8 p.m. Swedish time okay so have a question in Swedish here boss get an thymio today I'm not and that means what am I supposed to eat if I'm working out and it depends a little bit on what kind of working out you do if you're working out for health or if you're an endurance athlete at a professional level but basically what they have found is that even though as an athlete you burn off the carbs they still create most of the problems there that we've talked about you may not get the extent of the damage because you're you're a younger you don't have so much degeneration left but.
Like I found out from eating thousands of calories of grain and sugar daily that it catches up with you sure you burn it off and you don't associate it with nutritional deficiencies for another 10 or 20 years but it's just not a great food so whole food meets vegetables in fact a lot of bodybuilders and even endurance athletes are finding that a ketogenic diet which we've done other videos will do some more in this series also is when you go solo on the carbs that your body learns to use alternate fuels ketone bodies from from fat digestion and that's the more stable fuel and it is it's a better fuel for the body it's a better fuel for the brain and if you get your body.
Habituated to that kind of fuel you're not so dependent on the carbs for the blood sugar swings your body gets better at creating long term energy and I would probably in response to the question I would get if I was training today I get on a ketogenic diet then if I was if I felt like I needed a boost somewhere I probably eat some berries it's maybe maybe banana maybe some fruit even though again even though they're they're starchy they're natural they're not depleted they're not processed and most of those sugars are going to enter your bloodstream very very quickly and be available as energy so again sugar from an insulin standpoint does.
Not create a problem if you're exercising because muscles open up those insulin gated channels you become more insulin sensitive during exercise so you don't really have an issue with sugar during exercise as long it is from a natural source if you start eating sucrose or sports drinks or candy bars now you're back to all the other problems we've talked about ideal diet for cancer or tumor so again just want to point out that we don't diagnose or treat disease in any way but cancer is an extreme form of toxicity it is where you've had long-term exposure to stressors or you've had it so early in life that you never really developed any defenses like.
We said cancer loves sugar and it doesn't like oxygen if you cut back the sugar and increase the oxygen such as in moderate exercise and breathing exercises to open up your peripheral rate circulation you're increasing the oxygenation and there's lots of other ways study some ways about oxygenation chlorophyll is a great thing the one we use and here is kind of unique it's called chlorophyll complex it's the only fat soluble chlorophyll there is and it's kind of the only one that that works as a detoxifier and to help the body rebuild blood and an oxygen delivery I would recommend maybe go and research something called Gerson diet I don't agree with it a hundred.
Percent but I think it has some fantastic ideas in in the in the bottom of it and what Gerson is based on is juicing so digestion and repairing takes a lot of energy and if you want to short-term now juicing and veganism and cleansing those can be really really good short-term it's not a lifestyle and juicing is a way to add in tremendous amounts of nutrients because if you juice vegetables you can have you can't eat ten pounds of vegetables you can juice ten pounds of vegetables and then you're freeing up most of the vitamins and minerals in that juice from ten pounds and you can ingest it and like we said all of these are mono sugars and the vitamins and minerals are just.
Floating around in this liquid requiring no digestion no energy expenditure no enzymes required it's absorbed very quickly and very early so again you don't want to do it all the time and there is sort of a balancing because it does have a lot of sugar but because of the tremendous amount of nutrients that can be have an extremely powerful cleansing effect and also a resting effect on the body any more questions she's shaking her head going once going twice alright thank you so much for watching and your attention and tell all your friends in Sweden because we're doing a lot of these in the middle of the day so.
