Lay Off The Garbohydrates
You won’t have heard of the term ‘garbohydrates’ before. It’s a new word to describe the high density refined carbohydrates, flour and sugar, and the food that’s made with them.
You can add potatos when it’s saturated in fat.
If you want to know why you’re getting fatter look no further than the garbohydrates.
The prime position on the junk food scale is held by the garbohydrates, the principle ingredients of which are flour, sugar and on their own, or mixed with fat.
Potato gets into the garbohydrate classification when it is mixed with fat and comes out the other end as a chip – hot or cold.
When a high proportion of people are eating large amounts of manufactured food, it’s naïve in the extreme to leave the garbohydrates from a food model that’s designed to inform people about ways of eating healthily.
If you lay off the garbohydrates there is a good chance you’ll lose fat from your body. In fact, the basis of all successful diets is laying off garbohydrates.
At a time when flour is increasingly being implicated as a cause of the epidemic of bowel dysfunction, obesity and other metabolic dysfunctions, the proponents of the Junk Pyramid continue to promote refined cereal-based starches as an essential part of a model diet. The Department of Health recommends you eat between 8 and 24 slices of bread a day. Hello!
The mantra to eat more bread and pasta, is fuelling the epidemic of obesity, Candida fungus and a range of body system dysfunctions, from headaches to lethargy, elevated blood pressure, irritable bowel, cardiac dysfunction and diabetes.
Every time a dietician sees flour they think ‘grains’. Every time you see flour, think ‘sugar’. It’s having the same effect, massive glucose dumps that upset your metabolic system. We eat huge amounts of flour, and usually not on its own. We tend to smother it with fat and/or sugar.
A good way to judge how good a food is to ask yourself whether you could eat it raw. Now many people ever eat flour raw. In fact it would seem to be just about impossible to down a bowl of flour.
Pure, white and deadly. The love of sugar is the root of all kinds of body system dysfunction. In our culture you could classify it as a poison it’s taken in such large amounts and does so much metaboli8c damage.
Flour and fat
When you add fat in with the flour you’ve got a very high density product. A Jatz dry biscuit has 1960Kj/100 gms, and the Ritz dry biscuit 2370Kj/100gms, and that’s without the dip, cheese, salami and gherkin!
Flour and sugar
When you mix flour and sugar you usually get a small biscuit, usually masquerading as a breakfast cereal. Be not deceived.
Fat and sugar
The day that fat tooth met sweet tooth was a joyous occasion. Spirits were raised, belts were loosened
Chocolate is 35% fat and 55% sugar. You love the taste and the texture.
Fat, flour and sugar
Ranging in energy density from 1900KJ/100gms through to 2,300Kj/100gms.
Or try this for size: how ‘bout a slice of bread with butter, peanut butter and honey? I can tell you it’s very appetizing and does wonders for your figure, particularly if you take the NH&MRC recommendation to have between 12 and 20 slices a day.
Fat and potato
A variation on the flour and fat classification, this time substituting one starch for another. The final form of this particular garbohydrate occurs when the humble potato is cut up into small pieces and bathed in fat. Here’s what happens.
