    Carbs, sugar, and salt are the enemies. NOT FAT. Just cause it’s called fat, dosen’t mean it makes you fat.

    Obviously what we are told is wrong.
    It is very simple and very obvious what needs to be done.
    It is not fats or fatty food causing obesity. It is a lie that fats and fatty food causes obesity.
    It is the stuff we are encouraged to eat, carbohydrates.
    Carbohydrates are, bread(any type of bread) pasta sugar (from any source any type), honey rice cerals grains (any type) potatoes carrots pumpkin sweet potato taro (any starcy vegetable), any and all fruits.
    It does not matter if the carbohydrate food is organic or wholegrain or sourdough or other flimflam distractions.
    Carbohydrates are ALL converted to GLUCOSE when we metabolise them.
    Glucose is absolutely essential as it is our fuel, but excess glucose can easily kill you.
    Our bodies glucoses defense is insulin, insulin triggers our body to convert glucose to triglycerides that are stored as fat. Eating carbohydrates constantly causes insulin to be released constantly and eventually the pancreas wears out and you get diabetes.
    Insulin PREVENTS your body being able to use your stored fat as your body CANNOT both store fat and access stored fat, it is one or the other.
    To access stored fat you must clear glucose from your digestive system, this takes a day or two.
    Most people’s addiction to carbohydrates prevents them from fasting the necessary time to be able to use their stored fat.
    Eating fatty food (with absolutely NO carbohydrates) does not trigger insulin release and hence your body can then use your fat reserves.
    When fasting you can eat any protein any fats any green leafy vegetables in any quantities you dont need to starve. Although your carbohydrates addiction will make you feel you are starving. Your body will then switch to usuing your stored fat, while you have body fat fasting cannot harm you.
