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.
