Still Counting Calories & Carbs?

We love to measure things. We hope by counting Nutrition Facts we can know how GOOD a food is for us. But how effective is it? What about the vast nutritional gap between the three realms of food: Organic vs. "Conventional" vs. GMO? What's the effect of chemicals on complete nutrition? Obviously, this will vary depending on the type of seed, minerals and microbes in the soil, growing conditions, and freshness of the food. Ha Ha! Did you know that calorie and carb counts are based on average ...

Maple Syrup LOADED with SUGAR! The devil is in the details.

How Healthy is Your Breakfast Cereal?

A healthy breakfast means a bowl of cereal. Right? After all isn't this an American tradition? Nope. It’s actually a very recent marketing invention. A tiny mistake in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1870 changed the face of breakfast forever. Harvey Kellogg (recognize the name?) was the director of a popular health retreat. Kellogg was said to treat his guests with many bizarre experiments for health improvement. One of his invention was a whole grain corn breakfast cereal served ...

What Favorite Foods Convert to SUGAR in Your Blood?

Shall we do some MYTH BUSTING? We all know sugar is BAD. And whole foods are GOOD. Yep, we've got that. But WHY do people eating a whole food diet per the government food pyramid, still end up with high cholesterol and heart disease? Maybe it's not exactly BAD foods vs. GOOD foods. What about nutritious whole foods that CONVERT to sugar in the body? They may not TASTE sweet, but we know they quickly turn into SUGAR: Wheat, Rice, Corn, Potatoes, All Grains, All Roots. Cl...

Diabetes, Obesity, Heart Disease & Uric Acid Caused by Fructose?

What causes high URIC ACID in the body? This is my question today. Many of our chronic diseases are associated with high uric acid levels. According to Dr. David Perlmutter, elevated Uric Acid is a common thread linking our rising chronic metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, gout, insulin resistance, Non fatty liver disease, and Alzheimer’s. “It’s time we put uric acid where it belongs, to measure it and follow it over time, as we do with ...

Vegetable Oils: Good, Bad and Deadly

Have you ever wondered what's at the root of our world cancer epidemic? Like all disease, there are many contributing factors. However, the elephant in the room I'm highlighting today is our modern vegetable oils. Do you remember before the 1950’s, butter and lard were the go-to cooking fats in America. Our human diet has changed radically in the past 100 years, not always for the best. Now, GMO vegetable oils are everywhere, in many prepared foods, and so cheap that everyone thinks it's ...

The body naturally gets rid of debris and spike proteins through a process called autophagy. The cell places unwanted ...

Say Good-Bye to a Middle-Age Belly in 10 Steps

To live a long and healthy life, one of the most important steps is to keep your intestines clean. Certain foods clog up our body and lead to weight gain.

But please read on - - it's vitally important. Our food choices are an ...

AVOID! Toxic “Natural Flavors”

By Jane Barthelemy.  When I see “Natural flavors” on a food label, I feel immediately anxious, unprotected, and suspicious. I conjure up bizarre images of chemical experiments in a food laboratory. What is the truth about “Natural Flavors”? What does the term mean? How can I protect myself...

5 Top Healthy Sweeteners

Top ratings go to 1) Raw Honey, 2) PureLo by Swanson, 3) Swerve Sweetener, 4) Lakanto, and 5) Raw Stevia leaves, the only healthy sweeteners I can find. My criterion are purity, stable blood sugar, and balanced metabolism. With a world epidemic of diabetes, obesity, and metabolic disorder, we need sweeteners that stop the sugar cycle in it's tracks. Sadly, grocery stores do not carry healthy sweeteners, so we buy them online. We don't really need sweeteners, but some of us got used to a ...

Chronic Disease is Just Nutrients Lost in Processed Food

Instead of processed grains, eat dark rice and whole wheat flour. Forget white rice and white flour. This study below shows ...

10 Steps to Maintain Healthy Weight as We Age

By Jane Barthelemy. Is it normal and unavoidable for our bodies to expand every year? Nope. A large body is absolutely not a necessary part of aging.

There are myriad causes and cures for the expanding midriff. It's a poorly understood topic that affects millions. In this heavily researched article I'm offering a multi-leveled approach to causes and solutions to the expanded midriff. ...

Xylitol, NOT a low calorie sweetener!

By Jane Barthelemy. Is Xylitol a healthy sweetener? Touted as a safe sugar substitute for diabetics in snacks, chewing gum, and baking, Xylitol is NOT the low-calorie sweetener it's cracked up to be. Just look at the nutrition label and you'll see it's loaded with calories and carbs. I don't accept that stripping birch bark and thus killing the tree is sustainable or earth-friendly. How is Xylitol produced? How does it affect the body? You deserve to know the truth to make an informed choice. ...

7 Most Addictive Foods, How to be free of bad habits

If you notice yourself craving "comfort foods" like cookies, energy bars, or chips, you're already familiar with that strange unconscious appeal. Something about that food makes you always want more. This is a specific neurological response purposely created to charm you into consuming it. Oh yes! Countless studies show that certain foods stimulate ...
