Why it’s important to eat fat and fiber.

For the past 63 years, American citizens have been instructed to cut fat and load up on carbohydrates. This dietary dogma would rise again in the 1980s and 1990s due to low fat dairy, low cholesterol eggs, and a load of low fat sugary snacks. Another thing we do not take into account is that the majority of carbohydrates we eat are not complex, but processed carbohydrates. White bread, pizza, pasta, noodles. All of these things come from white flour. Why is this is a problem? One thing, lack of fiber.

While fiber from wheat, barley, and rye can satisfy us for a lot longer, the gluten makes the fiber insoluble, meaning it cannot be digested properly. You compare that to gluten free fibers like greens, broccoli, carrots, and berries. When doctors tell you to go on a low fat high fiber diet, that means cut the butter and eat oatmeal. Oatmeal is not exactly a good meal for your diet because the fibers will lower your cholesterol while speaking your blood sugar.

When you eat fiber, but no fat, the fiber cannot do it’s job by scooping up toxins from your intestines and colon. The fiber is there, but the fat that was melted before being consumed has to survive the digestive tract to assist the fiber in lifting up the toxins. When fat and fiber work together, the toxins will exist your body by a bowel movement. That is how toxins should be out of your body. Not intense exercise routines daily.

When I talk about consuming fats, I talk about consuming butter, lard, bacon grease, beef drippings, pork drippings, chicken fat, and deer fat. Animal fats have nutrients. So consuming fats that are not solid at room temperature will help those fats bypass the digestive tract to get down to the intestines in a matter of 30 minutes give or take. After a bowel movement, you’ll start gaining energy.

That’s why if you consume fiber from berries, legumes, broccoli, or vegetables, have a hot drink with some sort of animal fat. Green tea, coffee, it don’t matter. Put a tablespoon of fat in the drink. Combining fat and fiber in a clean diet not only cleanses the inside of your body, but for those that are overweight, this increases the odds of sustainable weight loss.

I’m not saying you can’t have a pizza once in a blue moon. I’m not saying you can’t enjoy pasta, but fibers from fruits and vegetables are more important. Without fiber and fat combined, you’ll be sick for a long time. Sluggish, irritable, etc. American people are more irritable due to the low fat, high fiber diet. Upping the fat intake will help the fiber work more effectively.

Explanation time

Well, for those of you that have been wondering why The EdRay Report went down, here’s the reason. Back in May, certain files were broken, causing an HTTP 500 issue that would not allow me to access the site. This is an easy situation to take care of by contacting my webhost. Usually it takes up to 48 hours for the HTTP 500 to work itself out. This was unfortunately not the case. I should have contacted my webhost about the issue immediately, but I didn’t.

Another issue was the fact that I was burned out. Personal responsibilities, trying to maintain this website, and building up a fanbase on social media finally got the better of me. In other words, I was burned out. This did not mean that I abandoned responsibilities in my garden. When you make about a dozen episodes for an independent website, then work tirelessly to build up a reputation on social media, there comes a time when you need a break.

So think of what happened with my website being down for a while as a break to collect my thoughts and regain my senses. Don’t get me wrong, I could have taken care of the issue immediately with my webhost, but I was mentally exhausted trying to build this website to talk about economizing. This is in no way the end of The EdRay Report as of yet.

In August, I will bring back the core content here on The EdRay Report. I may do some random videos like grocery shopping and such. It all depends on the situation in question. Meanwhile, for those of you on summer vacation, enjoy your summer vacation. I will post more blogs before getting back into vlogs. Meanwhile, you can go on the list where you can view all the episodes of The EdRay Report. Thank you for your time ladies and gentlemen. I apologize for what happened.

Update

I apologize to you viewers for not posting stuff regularly. Real life responsibilities have kept me from posting blogs and videos. The garden has been my main responsibility. Pruning, fertilizing, mulching, etc. Collecting sticks to mulch flower beds and herb beds. I’ve also collected sticks to mulch fruit trees.

Other works like mowing the lawn weekly, cleaning up the roof, and taking care of other things has taken a toll on my schedule. I will post Episode 13 of The EdRay Report soon, so bear with me ladies and gentlemen. Summertime is coming next month, so I’ll be posting one episode of The EdRay Report a month, but I will try and write blogs here.

Summertime is usually the season I have to take the most responsibility. Even in 100 degree weather, I will have to take care of major responsibilities. I apologize for saying that word to an annoying levels, but this is why I have not posted regularly. Until next time folks, take care of yourselves.

The progress of May

Episode 12 will likely be an update of my Spring garden. I have added stuff to the garden alongside figuring out innovative ways to cut usage of water. Because of the persistence and innovation, I’m ready to share secrets for those that are about to have their planting season ready.

An EdRay Special will be health related as I talk about calories. There are a variable of calories that I will discuss. Then I will talk about why calories in general are not the enemy of health, but rather the types of calories. This special will allow people to enjoy good food again, but I’ll have to explain calories from a scientific perspective.

Episode 13 will be health regarding life preserving properties. You do not want to miss that episode. So three videos will be posted here for the month of May. Tell your friends, family, and even enemies about The EdRay Report. Until next time, take care of yourselves.

As we enter May

April has been a challenging month for The EdRay Report. Episode 10 and Episode 11 were tough to focus on. Then I aired an EdRay Special on Cannabis on April 20th. That special is the reason why I did not create Episode 12. What do I have for Episode 12 for The Edray Report? I’ll have to figure that out for myself.

I appreciate you folks for following me and supporting my content. I will try and provide more content as we approach the month of May 2019. Tell your friends, family, and even enemies about The EdRay Report. Thank you and good day ladies and gentlemen.

Happy 4/20 dear viewers. I talk about the benefits of cannabis from an industrial, health, and economical standpoint. Just because hemp is legal does not mean all cannabis is legal here in America. My guest for this special is Joshua Josher. Check out his channel if you please.

The EdRay Report- Episode 11

Update for you folks

Forgive me ladies and gentlemen for not posting regularly. I’ve been busy with the Spring garden alongside other responsibilities. But Episode 11 of The EdRay Report is coming soon. It will be the first time that I show pictures of my Spring garden to let you folks in how I’m doing this without relying on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Having a quality organic garden takes time, so on Episode 11, I will teach you patience on growing a quality garden.

Most people that do garden give up for the following reasons. Number one, growing food takes a long time. But you folks need to remember that all the foods in the grocery store are either being grown in California or Mexico and their seasons are usually different. Number two, a lot of foods are coming from Africa, Asia, sometimes Australia. Again, the seasons are different for them. That’s why our grocery stores have a constantly supply of food.

And before you harvest food, you have to start planting different foods for different seasons so a famine is less likely. So for those that are impatient, but want to garden nonetheless, stay tuned for Episode 11 of The EdRay Report. Of course tell your friends, family, and even enemies about The EdRay Report. Episode 11 will air on Friday. Take care folks.
