Obesity - There IS a Diet That Works!
Overweight seems to be a national plague. Diets, books on dieting, dieting organizations, and exhortations from doctors and health professional do not seem to be enough. Millions of people have turned to dangerous prescription drugs or fad diets to stave off their hunger. What is really going on here?
The meat industry and the fast-food restaurants have more to do with America's weight problem than anything else. Each day we are barraged with powerful TV and radio ads promoting the idea that it's perfectly OK to have bacon and eggs for breakfast, hamburgers and french fries for lunch, and fried chicken and french fries for supper.
A high-fat diet such as this causes subtle changes in metabolism. The body's ability to burn fat is compromised. Levels of insulin, which "demobilizes" fat metabolism, increase, while insulin "receptors" in our cells become less effective or shut down entirely. In a downward spiral, the body collects more fat, and the fat-burning mechanism is further compromised. Combined with a profound deficiency in vitamin C (most Americans get about 1% of the vitamin C they need for proper metabolism), heart disease and diabetes are next in line.
Meat Is Toxic
Furthermore, because of the dioxin contamination of all meat products, meat-consuming diets don't just cause overweight. Meat should be considered toxic. A typical 1/4 lb. hamburger has 100-1000 times as much dioxin in it as the EPA thinks is "safe." Unfortunately, politics and economics are more powerful forces than reason and rationality. The EPA's report on dioxin, completed in 1994, has not yet been made public except as a "draft" document. One of the known health effects of dioxin is disruption of insulin metabolism, leading to diabetes. Dozens of other nasty afflictions - from endometriosis to chronic fatigue syndrome - are attributable to dioxin.
Is there a healthy diet that people can use to lose weight and permanently keep themselves slim and fit? There is indeed. But it requires removal of meat, fish, and milk products from the diet - forever. (If you have an underlying eating disorder, therapy and/or a group program such as Overeaters Anonymous is also essential).
This is, coincidentally, the only way to have a low-dioxin diet. Because of the long-lived nature of this super-toxic chemical, and its distribution all over the planet, meat, fish, and milkfat are going to be highly contaminated with dioxin for many years, even after we stop producing it.
A Healthy Diet
A healthy diet-and-exercise regimen is actually pretty simple to accomplish once meat, fish, and milk products are out of the picture completely (and I do mean completely).
It has been known for years that it is possible to get all the protein we need from high-protein vegetarian foods. The meat substitutes (usually made from soy), when eaten with grains (bread, pasta, or rice) complement each other to provide enough complete, wholesome protein for a healthy diet. Many restaurants now serve vegetable-protein meals, such as veggie-burgers or refried bean tacos and burritos; be sure to ask for them without cheese or sour cream!
