Why Soy is not really a healthy option

Soy milk has enjoyed an undeserving health label in recent years.  According to Dr. Mercola, the Chinese have enjoyed the health benefits of soy for centuries.  The difference between the healthy soy that they eat and the soy that we get here in the United States comes down to fermentation.  Fermented soy is good and healthy, unfermented soy is downright dangerous. 

Why? Our soy is genetically modified to stand up to poisonous pesticides.  The studies are showing that the damage is showing up in 2nd and 3rd generations instead of those who are originally exposed.  Even if you have organic soy, (only about 5% in USA), it is dangerous.  Soy has estrogen components and phytic acid.

I LOVE COCONUT OIL

I Love coconut oil...I use it in cooking, on my hair and as a moisturiser. The naturally occurring saturated fat found in coconut oil has some spectacular health benefits such as promoting heart health, weight loss, immune system health, thyroid function and more. Half of the fat content in coconut oil is lauric acid—a fat rarely found in nature—that could easily qualify as a "miracle" ingredient because of its unique health-promoting properties. Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-protozoa properties. Do you use it?— 

Coconut oil can be used for a lot of things.

Low Metabolism VS Ultra Metabolism

The difference in diet philosophy is really obvious!

Dr. Mark Hyman says to do everything you can and there is a long, strong list to reach ultra-metabolism.

Dr. Joel Fuhrman, in his book “Eat to Live”, he speaks of lowering our metabolism to increase our longevity.  WHAT!!!  How can that be?  If you Google “increase metabolism” on the Internet you get 100’s of responses with advice on how to raise our metabolism to lose weight.  Dr. Fuhrman pretty much stands alone on Google to lower the metabolism.

Metabolism is our resting metabolic rate.  It is the amount of energy that the body requires to maintain life.  According to Dr. Fuhrman, “there are unfavorable consequences to running your body at faster than normal speed, and raising your metabolism is not the key to weight loss.”  He says that by increasing our metabolism we increase damage to our DNA, proteins and lipids, thereby decreasing the body’s physiological functions over time and leading to tissue and organ damage which leads to chronic disease and death.
