Ten Things We Are Not Being Told About Diet (Part One)steemCreated with Sketch.

in food •  last year

Almost everything we are being told about food, good diet and healthy eating is not just inaccurate, it’s the exact opposite of the truth. And there is good reason for this – selling people cheap, toxic crap is really profitable, and making them ill and then selling them cheap, toxic drugs is really profitable too.

Here are ten food tips that are not exactly being broadcast by the mainstream media, the medical (sickness) industry, and the food manufacturers.

They are also being hidden by governments, who are getting a huge portion of their funding from these three enormous and totally corrupt institutions.

Avoid Refined Carbohydrates

This is the big one – avoid these and for most people, weight gain is generally not a problem. Yes, that does include bread, pasta, sugars, cereals, fruit juices and muffins. Yes that pretty much is the food everyone else lives on, and it will make you a social freak.

If it’s any consolation you can eat as much meat, veg, and saturated fat as you like and it will all be just fine. So you can have bacon and eggs, and raw cream for breakfast, while you watch fat people eat bagels and orange juice!

This pic below is known as a “food pyramid” – it’s a good summary of how not to eat, all encompassed in one child friendly, grain industry sponsored pile of propaganda:


Drink Clean Water

Obtain clean water and drink it. Tap water in New Zealand (just like in America and Australia) is toxic because it contains fluoride, chlorine, aluminium (alum), and in some cases (where there are old water pipes) asbestos as well

It’s not just drinking the tap water that’s a problem – bathing and showering in it leads to fluoride and chlorine absorption too.

A good household carbon filter will take out chlorine, asbestos, and aluminium, but it will not take out fluoride. This can be done, but it requires a much more expensive filtration system (around NZ$2000-4000) to sort out your water for bathing and showering.

Reverse osmosis filters and distillers will get most of the fluoride out for drinking, but they remove the good minerals too, and this leads to other problems.

If you are unable to obtain water free from a good source, and have to buy bottled water, keep in mind that some bottled water is just tap water that’s been filtered to get rid of the chlorine taste, while some bottled spring water is good quality.


Eat Raw Dairy Products

Milk that has been pasturised is useless, all the enzymes in it that are needed for digestion and calcium absorption have been destroyed.

Full fat raw milk from A2 Jersey cows eating fresh organic grass is a health food. But only raw milk is worth drinking, commercial milk that has been pasturised or homoginised is no good at all.

In New Zealand (and some other countries/states), real raw milk can be obtained directly from some farmers (for about the same price as the Fonterra sells it’s A1 maximum allowable DDT content, low fat crud in the supermarkets).


Avoid Sugar In All It’s Forms

Of all the refined carbs, it’s sugar that’s the worst one. It’s hard to avoid because almost all commercial food contains it in some form.

It’s cheap and addictive, and it has been linked to pretty much every form of illness, particularly cancer, diabetes, and obesity. On an ingredients label, generally anything ending in “ose” is a sugar too. And fructose is one of the worst forms. High fructose corn syrup is king toxic of the toxic stuff.

PowerBar – “Athletic energy food for optimum performance.”
MAIN INGREDIENT: High Fructose Corn Syrup….


Avoid “Low Fat” Foods – Eat More Saturated Fats

Low fat foods tend to be high sugar foods, and are generally unhealthy and fattening. They are the fast way to become an obese diabetic.

At each meal, aim to consume some foods with a high content of saturated fat, or add some saturated fat, such as butter or coconut cream, to foods that are low in fat (such as fruit)

And like saturated fat, cholesterol is an essential nutrient. A low cholesterol diet raises the levels of bad cholesterol and increases the likelihood of heart attacks and high blood pressure. Basically a diet low in cholesterol causes high cholesterol. (yes, the exact opposite of what “doctors” are saying) So eat foods high in cholesterol regularly too.

You have probably heard differently on this – don’t worry, it’s just like 911, the media reports have been slightly misleading!


Avoid Gluten

Modern wheat is bred for it’s high gluten content. But gluten is not a good food for humans or most other animals.
Intolerance to gluten follows a bell curve, from celiac’s to people who are fine eating gluten, but the vast majority (well over 50%) of people in western nations are suffering health problems from eating gluten.

If in doubt, avoid all gluten for six days, then eat some. You may be fine, but the majority of people get symptoms such as diarrhoea, headaches, or stomach ache when testing, which shows they have a gluten intolerance to some degree.

Good replacements for wheat flour include coconut flour, ground almonds, and arrowroot flour. (You can’t just substitute though. You may need to mix flours together correctly, so consult someone experienced in gluten free cooking for help.)

Tip Top bread – like all modern high gluten bread, best avoided.

Avoid Fast Food – Eat Slow Food

Avoid microwaves, takeaways, instant noodles, and production line swill from commercial producers.
Eat food that’s been carefully produced and prepared by people who care what goes into it.

Avoid ingesting man-made chemicals

Don’t put them on your skin (deodorants), wash in them (most shampoos), swim in them (chlorinated swimming pools), inject them (vaccinations), put them in your teeth (mercury amalgam fillings), inhale them (most perfumes), smoke them (cigarettes), cook in them (teflon), or swallow them (drugs – including prescription ones).

But most of all, don’t eat them – flavourings, colourings, preservatives, MSG – Virtually all chemicals (and there’s about 80,000 of them) are toxic to living things. Just because they are in food doesn’t mean they are OK, – it just means the right officials were paid in full to approve them.


Avoid Soft Drinks (“soda”)

This one’s not rocket science, sickly fizzy products such as those sold by Coca Cola are not doing you any favours!

Avoid Trans Fats and Vegetable Oils

Fats are a complex subject, and no area of diet has more misinformation than this one.

Coconut oil, butter, lard, and extra virgin olive oils are generally good foods, while pretty much all other vegetable oils are rancid toxic crud. Canola oil (rapeseed) is among the worst.

Heated vegetable oils are about as dodgy as they get, and yes your fish and chip shop IS trying to kill you – chips fried in lard are much better for you!

“We cook with healthy canola oil” – Mmmmm, trans fats AND a gluten batter….better wash it all down with a coke!
Don’t worry; it’s actually quite easy to cook your own fish and chips using lard, olive oil, or coconut oil, so there’s no need to go without this tasty favourite.

Part two is now online, but this may be enough to worry about for now…

Wow that was fast - I've now put a link back to this post from our webpages.

That was an old version I'd forgotten we had online - a newer version is also online, and this Steemit post is the latest version.

http://www.frot.co.nz/design/health/food/

PS - Even though in some of my posts I'm taking the piss, this one is 100% serious (hopefully)

This is really good stuff. Fun to read, informative, and makes me realize all the things I suspected were true, are true. :)

I really like what you're doing here.. Let's compare notes here, so much to consider and learn!

Drink Clean Water

There is spring water! I have ours delivered in 5 gal glass containers. I just hope there is no f*fracking around!

fruit juices

Rather than avoid this one I like to plan it. I like raw fruit juices that still have the good bacteria intact. People are reporting success in using lots and lots of fruit / juices to reduce or eliminate cancer. This one is probably good especially when raw and not mixed much with other food (morning) to keep it digesting higher in the GI track.

Eat Raw Dairy Products

YES! I hear goat products are even better as because this is a smaller mammal (the cow is kind of large for humans).

Avoid Sugar In All It’s Forms

I'm open to all sugars if they are raw and unprocessed and not mixed with other low GI stuff .. Certainly caution is needed here but less when it is raw. Natural forces can help regulate this one. Best to have in moderation or avoid it totally if recovering from candidiasis (as many people could easily have). Sugar in fruit serves a purpose. Lets listen to our intuition and taste buds (but that does not work if you're tricking yourself with processed sugars).

Avoid Gluten

Agreed: If processed or intolerant. I think you explained it well. My understanding is a healthy GI tract can digest Gluten Dairy and Soy but that may require RAW products like Sour Dough Bread (baked true but could help), Raw Milk products, fresh tofu / natto.

Avoid Fast Food – Eat Slow Food

"Avoid microwaves, ..." - you have been doing your homework :)

Avoid Trans Fats and Vegetable Oils

" Canola oil (rapeseed) is among the worst."

Yea, I see this used in children's USDA Organic snack bars. If you want to save some time verifying my claim, just look for ones with popular cartoon characters on them.


I need a sticker book full of warning labels to take with me everywhere I go (like the grocery store)!! Does someone want to make one and put it on peerhub?


For your next one you might consider:

  • "Natural Flavors" and the 120 or so chemicals on the FDAs OK list used to derive these compounds from natural sources. I just got confirmation from a manufacturer (which I will name here): Chameleon Cold - Brew USDA Organic Mocha Coffee. They emailed me back stating: "All of our natural flavors are derived from plant-based sources."
  • Dirty dozen
  • Can Packaging - I call Amy's USDA Organic soup "Vinyl Soup".. If you want an example of (probably) good packaging check out Eden. At one point Eden was claiming that they had to use their purchasing power to get the safer cans.

Just today: I just to the produce manager about a "Do not eat package" found in pre-chopped onions. I actually bought thouse to find the slimy bottom uncovered a nasty package of chemicals. What are the odds that package has a one-way membrane that only accepts water molecules and does not let any toxic material out? ..

fyi, I hope the fat people pics don't turn some people away. We need good people everywhere to buy wise so this will get a lot better. Awesome job though. Really happy to see you taking this on.

Many thanks for your vote and in depth comments. It sounds like you have been researching all this very thoroughly too.

I've already posted part two - https://steemit.com/food/@sift666/ten-more-things-we-are-not-being-told-about-diet-part-two but haven't really covered the extra points you mentioned - I've put them on my list to cover next - great ideas.

Raw goat milk is good too - we are a drop off point for organic A2 jersey milk, but also get in the occasional litre of goat milk. It is a lot dearer and harder to obtain, so is quite rare here, but some people who can't tolerate cow's milk are fine on it.

The NZ dirty dozen site rates celery as the worst food for pesticides - the NZ list is surprisingly different to the US version. https://www.organicnz.org.nz/node/120

One of the big issues we find with sugars are that most people have had all the beneficial bacteria in their gut needed for digesting sugars killed off by taking antibiotics. Antibiotics are doled out like lollies so over 90% of people in countries like NZ and America have had some in the past five years.

We are the NZ distributors of Biokult probiotics, so in a way we benefit from the high use of antibiotics :) But it isn't easy sorting out gut flora, and we think for most people it's best to keep all sugar intake (even from fruits) as low as possible.
