Is Your Nutrition Advice Causing You Pain?

The number one question people ask me is; what should I eat? The assumption is usually that they need to add something to their existing diet.  Since the beginning of scientific nutrition,  the emphasis has always been on deficiencies. The resulting nutritional advice and food pyramids are a recipe for gluttony and misery.

Advice from a random food pyramid suggests that you eat 6-11 servings of grains, 3-5 servings of vegetables, 2-4 servings of fruit, 2-3 servings of dairy, 2-3 servings of flesh or legumes and there is still room in your stomach for a little fat. I feel sorry for the poor livers that have to filter all of this in one day. Here is how I view the these pyramid recommendations: 6-11 servings of carbonic acid, 3-5 servings of intestine scrubbers or carbonic acid (depending on the vegetable), 2-4 servings real food, 2-3 servings of gluey lactic  acid, 2-3 servings of uric acid,  and there’s still room in your stomach for a little more uric acid.

Look at all that acid. This is why so many people are in pain! Where did this advice come from?

Since the early 1900s, scientists have used a standard method of determining the nutrition in food. They fabricated food values, leaving laymen confused about diet. Health conscious people began calculating specifications like calories, fat, protein, vitamins and sugar intake.  Consequently or coincidentally, human health has declined.

The first scientific experiments in nutrition began in 1747; however, the concept of vital factors in the diet (vitamins) surfaced in 1912. In 1933, Graham Lusk established the American Institute of Nutrition and defined nutrition as, “the sum of processes concerned in the growth, maintenance and repair of the human body as a whole or of its constituent parts.”

The USDA began issuing food guides as early as 1916 and developed a daily recommendation of servings in the 1940’s. The food guides, heavily influenced by the food industry, encouraged the daily intake of grains, meat and dairy along with fruit and vegetables. Despite the protests and legal battles from human interest groups who have opposed the relationship between the USDA and large corporations, nutritionists still recommend this “balanced” diet.

Today’s USDA food guide (Choose My Plate) goes a step further in providing a breakdown of nutrition in mixed dishes.  It implies that a double cheese burger with pickles and onions satisfies four food groups; meat, grains, vegetables and dairy.  Even banana-nut bread is listed as satisfying three categories; one of them being fruit. Seriously?

The problem with the food guides is that they fail to address the three most important factors in food metabolism: digestion, electricity and hydration. Food must be easily digested to avoid constipation and the poisoning of the blood stream with acid, mucus and fermented food toxins. We are electrical “live” beings and electrical “live” food is optimal for molecular compatibility. Our bodies are supposedly 70-80% water; therefore, foods with the highest water content are the easiest to assimilate.

There is a lot of confusion about proper digestion. Many people assume that one good bowel movement a day is enough. If they were only eating once a day, they might be right. However, the average person eats three meals a day with 2 to 3 snacks in between. If everything they ate were easily digested, they would drop a load shortly after eating anything.

Constipation is another reason so many people are in pain. Blockage in the renal system leads to blockage in the circulatory system.  To learn more, see The Secrets of Pain: How You Can Control It Naturally.

Raw, starch-free, fruit and vegetables have the highest water content. Sun-charged fruit and vegetables are alive (electrical); especially, when freshly picked. They move freely through the digestive tract and often clean mucus out of the intestines.

Ironically, one of the first experiments in nutrition proved that citrus fruit saved lives. How did they become an insignificant part of today’s nutritional food guides? Why are acid causing foods emphasized? Is your nutrition advice causing you pain?
