David Wolfe On How To Get Started On Superfoods

David Wolfe On How To Get Started On Superfoods

Lenette: How do you see this book impacting the planet, the countries that it’s going to be first available to?

David: I think it’s going to have a huge impact for Elements of Life, personally. Everybody is on the same page, in my opinion, especially in the western world, North America, Canada, the U.S. about where the future of nutrition is. What everyone is arriving at is that people want more of their nutrition from food, meaning their vitamins and minerals and protein, antioxidants, etc. They want it easier. They want it to be as easy as possible. Superfoods answer that question. It solves that completely. As soon as people get clicked on to it, they realize, “Whoa. This solves a bunch of problems,” then it’s like an avalanche. That’s what I’ve been working on with Random House, who’s going to be helping me distribute this book; developing a strategy where we can kind of go out there and inform people like, “Hey, this is solving a big problem for everybody.” If you don’t have to depend on vitamin and mineral supplements and be worried about getting enough in our food, you eat superfoods and that’s covered completely. You don’t have to worry about it anymore. And it really is. That’s really the truth.

Lenette: Back to the superfoods, how do you suggest people new to superfoods get started?

David: I think it’s best to use a form of food that we’ve all been aware of, which is the superfoods smoothie, or the super protein shake or the Slim-Fast ‘throw it in a blender’ kind of idea. That’s the easiest way I’ve found for most people to tap into this. We’ve all had some experience with that. All we did is we just took the junk protein, the whey protein, egg white protein, whatever that was, just get rid of that and throw superfoods in instead. We have a blender, we have some spring water, we have our favorite fruits, let’s say right now it’s berries, frozen blueberries or whatever kind of fruit you like. You throw in your superfoods in there. I’m a beekeeper so I have honey at my house, and we throw in honey. You blend that up and you go running out the door and it’s like it’s a whole new reality. Actually what that does to people, doing a superfoods smoothie every morning instead of their traditional protein shake, it changes their whole reality around. Suddenly all their neurotransmitters start firing properly. They’re actually getting real protein for the first time in their life. They’re getting tryptophan for the first time in their life. They’re actually getting a good quality and spectrum of real minerals that are 100% bioavailable. That’s never happened in our lives. We grew up on like Froot Loops so when we actually get real nutrition, especially when it’s liquified like that, it has the fastest effect on people’s health of anything I’ve ever seen. That’s why I’m such a fan of superfoods. That’s why I’m putting my whole thing behind that. I’ve seen that it works in sorting out people’s neurochemistry better than anything else.

Lenette: Some people say, “How do I know what’s going to work for me if I start taking a bunch of these things at once?” But you’re saying, “Just go for the gold. Just try it all out.” [David laughing] Put it in a smoothie and you’ll feel better.

David: I remember one time I was hanging around with Shazzy. She’s very popular in the U.K. as a superfoodist; she and I wrote “Naked Chocolate” together. I remember we were having this hilarious moment together where we made up this superfood smoothie, and this was like six years ago. That was a long time ago, before it was like…I was kind of in my own reality with it, but I didn’t realize that people weren’t using this stuff. I made up this superfood smoothie; it must have had 50 ingredients in it. [both laughing] I’m tapping my foot, I’m drinking this drink, and I said, “Could you imagine if we just fed this to somebody on the street? It would probably knock them right out.” And BOOM, there was Shazzy knocked right out on her back.

Lenette: No way.

David: She literally drank half a cup of it and had to lay down. It just laid her right down. The reason why, it was just too much. I just kind of threw her right into the middle of the Super Bowl and it was too much. You’ve got to start out simple. Take Spirulina. Try that.

Lenette: Was that like a detox reaction she was having? Or just overstimulation from all these minerals and things?

David: It was probably both because when you put that level of nutrition…it was like herbs…I remember putting Cat’s Claw powder in there and Camu Camu berry. I’m not kidding, there were probably 50 ingredients in there. When you get to that level of concentration, you have to work up to it, just like anything else. You don’t just suddenly switch from Cheetos and Burger King over to 50 different things in a superfood smoothie. Even as a raw foodist, you go slowly. Everything’s very slow. It’s better that way. You try an experiment. You try bee pollen. You try Goji berries. You just eat it or you throw one ingredient in your drink and gradually you complexify it as you build that muscle. Basically what we’re doing is we’re building up a different muscle, a new digestive muscle. Most of our lives we spend a huge amount of digestive energy digesting nothing. There’s nothing in there. Now we can flip the equation around where we spend hardly any amount of digestive energy and we get a huge amount of nutrients. We’ve got to adapt to that. It doesn’t just happen overnight. You readapt your body to new, higher quality, higher octave types of foods and your body will take its little time. Over a few months it will gradually come along for the ride and that’s more reasonable. This step-by-step approach is much healthier.

Lenette: Can any of the superfoods in the upcoming book cause a detox reaction when you first start using them? And how important are superfoods in a detox program?

David: That’s a very good question. Generally the way I answer that question is to say, “What is a detoxification?” A detoxification occurs when the energy content of what’s coming into the body is at a higher level than where the body’s natural homeostasis is, or residual homeostasis. When you start taking superfoods that are high energy into a body that was eating, say, Burger King, there’s an energetic and vibrational discrepancy. Eventually what happens is one of those higher frequencies is going to entrain the lower frequency vibrations. It’s going to bring the lower energy up and drive it out. And that is going to occur in a lot of people just from eating any of the superfoods because the power of these foods is so high. If you’re a little bit more sophisticated with your approach and you’ve done cleansing and juice fasting and done herbal cleansing and that kind of thing, then you start targeting specific superfoods, like Chlorella, that get heavy metals out. Then you can start looking at Camu Camu berry for its medicinal content and medicinal capability of breaking down neurological blockages. For example, cataracts in the eye, glaucoma, foggy thinking, that kind of stuff. Then you could start to dial in a little bit deeper. Bee pollen, for example is a tremendous…it drives out all the gunk in our nervous system due to the acetylcholine that’s present in bee pollen and in royal jelly. What does that do? We’ve all had genetically modified soy lecithin that somehow snuck itself into our body and that just gums up our brain. You need acetylcholine from bee pollen and royal jelly to help drive that out. It’s called chelation replacement. Kelp is another one. Kelp can detoxify the thyroid. That’s another great superfood, one of the superfoods of the sea.

Lenette: Where are you telling people is the best place to get these superfoods? There are low quality superfoods out there and there are the best ever superfoods out there. How did you address that in the book?

David: What I did was, I went through, and there was a whole section on each superfood about what to look for. It’s really good. It’s designed for anybody to suddenly have the skill to say, “Here’s what I’m looking for. I’ve got to make sure I have cacao nibs that don’t have little white splotches on them. If I buy cacao with the skin on, it shouldn’t have any black mold on the outside.” Just little things like that. With each superfood, you become an expert on what to buy and how to determine what’s high quality and what’s low quality.

Lenette: That’s great, I’m really glad you put that in there. I’m curious to read that myself.

What Are The Negative Effects Of Carbohydrate Deficiency

What Are The Negative Effects Of Carbohydrate Deficiency

In the last few years low carbohydrate diets have become all the rage. The reason for their popularity is that they force your body to burn fat for energy. Unfortunately, there are some negative side effects associated with these low carb diets. In this article I will be discussing three of the negative side effects of carbohydrate deficiency in greater detail.

1) MICRONUTRIENT DEFICIENCIES:- Fruits and vegetables are a fantastic source of vitamins and minerals. These micronutrients support almost every function in your body. Some of their main benefits include keeping your nervous system healthy, supporting healthy growth, promoting healthy vision, protecting you from various diseases (including cancer and diabetes), keeping your vital organs healthy, supporting metabolism, strengthening your immune system, promoting mental health and maintaining sexual health.

By eliminating carbohydrates from your diet you are very likely to become deficient in vitamins and minerals meaning that you will miss out on all their benefits. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can also be damaging to your health and have a negative effect on your blood, bones, joints, mental health, nerves, skin, teeth, vision and vital organs.

2) CUTTING DIETARY FIBRE OUT OF YOUR DIET:- Fruits, vegetables and certain other carbohydrates are an excellent source of dietary fibre. Dietary fibre is an indigestible type of carbohydrate which has numerous health benefits. It helps keep your blood glucose levels under control, keeps your bowels healthy, helps you absorb vitamins and minerals and reduces your risk of developing cancer and heart disease.

By cutting carbs from your diet you lose out on dietary fibre and the associated health benefits. Consuming low levels of dietary fibre has also been linked with an increased risk of cancer, heart disease and obesity. On top of this not getting enough dietary fibre can lead to constipation, diarrhea and flatulence.

3) TEMPORARY LOSS OF ENERGY- Carbohydrates are your body’s preferred energy source. Completely cutting them from your diet leads to a short term drop in energy levels. Whilst your body does adapt and your energy levels do return to normal after a few days, your concentration levels and your ability to perform physical activities may suffer in the short term.

Low carbohydrate diets can be an effective weight loss tool and help you to eliminate unnatural, processed carbs (such as bread and pasta) from your diet. However, cutting out natural, nutrient rich carbohydrates (such as fruits and vegetables) as well can lead to the carbohydrate deficiency symptoms discussed in this article. Whilst there are no essential carbohydrates and your body can survive without them I think that at least 15% of your daily calories should come from carbohydrates in the form of fruits and vegetables. This will ensure that you avoid carbohydrate deficiency whilst also keeping your carb intake relatively low.

Trimming Waistlines And Healthcare Costs With Hcg

Trimming Waistlines And Healthcare Costs With Hcg

There have been two prominently growing trends in America the past couple of decades: our waistlines and our healthcare costs. Estimates are that since 1990, healthcare costs have tripled to now over $2.5 trillion per year. Mirroring this increase in healthcare costs has been an increase in the number of overweight individuals in this country, which is now nearly 70% of Americans. Being overweight significantly increases risk factors for developing a number of health conditions such as:
type 2 diabetes
coronary heart disease
high LDL (“bad”) cholesterol
stroke
hypertension
nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
gallbladder disease
osteoarthritis (degeneration of cartilage and bone of joints)
sleep apnea and other breathing problems
some forms of cancer (breast, colorectal, endometrial, and kidney)
complications of pregnancy
menstrual irregularities, infertility
depression
The numbers are looking grim for our next generation as well, with increasing numbers of children and adolescents becoming overweight. The size of our waistlines directly corresponds to increased healthcare costs, with obese individuals paying on average $1,430 more per year(over 42%) in healthcare costs compared to normal-weight individuals. Overweight and obese individuals account for over 9% of total healthcare costs in this country. The economic consequences of our expanded waistlines is substantial and no single intervention would have a greater effect improving health and reducing healthcare costs than an effective, affordable weight loss program.
There are no easy solutions. Diets that rely simply on reducing calories or counting points are generic, are not sustainable for people long term, and lead to perpetual weight cycling or yo-yo dieting which in itself is dangerous and a health risk. Bariatric surgeries are very expensive and associated with risks and complications. What is needed is a customized, individual approach which focuses on diet, exercise, behavior modification, stress reduction, and appetite control. In addition, often times there are other contributing factors to why it is difficult for some people to lose weight such as hormone imbalances, digestive dysfunction, environmental toxicity. Even simple aspects of nutrition such as experience and comfort preparing foods, grocery shopping habits, and social and media influences need to be addressed. Very often, it requires someone with the knowledge and experience of the complexities of nutrition and weight loss to guide and supervise patients for success to be realized in a sustainable manner.
Diet Doc physicians are highly trained experts in this field. They have collectively seen thousands of successful cases, and will give you the proper advice and support as you transition into the slimmer, healthier person you want to be. Their diet is customized and much more expanded in calories than any other program out there. They have developed an effective maintenance program to keep the weight off long term. Diet Doc offers its hcg diet and hcg weight loss clinics throughout the country with locations in San Diego, LA, Portland, Seattle, Spokane, Dallas, New York, and Miami.

Get Rid Of Man Boobs By Correcting Gynecomastia

Get Rid Of Man Boobs By Correcting Gynecomastia

If you need to get rid of man boobs, you need to know about a condition called Gynecomastia. It may not be the cause of your troubles, but it could be. It can show up in different stages of your life, from adolescence to your senior years. Its not the same as simple chest fat, although the two could occur at the same time. So the trick is recognizing whats going on, and how to best treat it.

Before we go on, please remember that this is not medical advice. Talk to your doctor before treating any medical condition in any way. Okay, lets continue.

Man boobs dont always indicate Gynecomastia

To cover the easy part first, lets look at PseudoGynecomastia, which is simple chest fat. This would be the diagnosis when no sign of the breast tissue or glandular enlargement is found. Because fat stored in this area can be very stubborn, Lipo surgery may be recommended by some doctors as the easiest and fastest solution.

Its worth remembering, though, that you can get rid of man boobs caused by stored fat with proper nutrition, attention to hormone balance and specific exercises. Hormone balance in this case is mostly about testosterone vs estrogen. Well talk more about estrogen and why its becoming such a problem in another article, but many of the reasons for this imbalance are diet related. Therefore many of the non-surgical solutions start with your nutrition habits.

Gynecomastia itself is not responsive to fat loss efforts, as its causing an enlargement of the mammary glands. Even if you did burn off or Lipo out the excess fat, the enlarged glands would remain.

This condition affects different people to different degrees. The range of symptoms goes from puffy nipples to bitch tits, to full-on breasts. In adolescents, symptoms frequently disappear naturally as testosterone increases during and after puberty. For older sufferers, some form of treatment will frequently be necessary.

Some common causes

Gynecomastia doesnt just happen. Its onset can be drug induced, resulting from the use of steroids, or excessive use of marijuana or alcohol. A hair loss treatment called Propecia is one of many medications whose side effects include Gynecomastia. Some other causes include:

*obesity
*tumors
*genetic disorders
*chronic liver disease
*castration (try to avoid this)
*Klinefelter Syndrome
*Gilberts Syndrome
*aging

It can also be a sign of serious existing conditions including several cancers. So again, consult your doctor before beginning any treatment, since you may have something far more serious to treat!

Treatments for man boobs caused by gynecomastia

This depends a lot on who you ask. A surgeon would probably tell you the mammary glands need to be removed, which is essentially a mastectomy. There are alternatives to consider first.

The first thing to consider is the cause of the disorder. For instance, if it sprang up when you started doing steroids then you should stop doing steroids! Not doing whatever you were doing may be all thats necessary. Likewise, if its occurring as a symptom of another problem then it may resolve itself through treatment for that problem.

Another factor to consider is the length of time the gynecomastia has been present. Non surgical approaches are apparently most effective if the conditions been present for 6 months or less.

When all else fails, the most effective therapy at any stage is surgical removal of the glandular tissue. In patients with a large amount of fat in the area, Lipo may be performed at the time of surgery to improve the results.

To recap, the first thing to do if you need to get rid of man boobs is determine, with your doctors assistance, whether youre dealing with accumulating fat or a glandular disorder. If its the latter, figuring out whats causing it will help determine the solution. Dont be too quick to go for surgery, but be aware it could be necessary if all else fails.

That should do it for now. Ill be back soon to look at how nutrition and exercise can keep your testosterone/estrogen balance where it should be to combat simple fat-created man boobs.
