Have you ever thought about what makes bread rise? Could this same component be the very root of weight problems? It comes to no surprise that obesity is increasing at alarming rates. Weight problems now cost more than smoking or alcoholism in regards to long term disability and health care expenses! I never truly understood the dangers until I saw that obesity leads to much higher risks of cancer, heart disease, birth defects, arthritis, …and the list goes on and on. Is it a possibility that a known poison that exists in our food supply, medication, and even in the air we breathe to be completely overlooked as the cause of disease and weight gain? You will soon find out the fungus link to weight loss!
So What Exactly Has Caused The Increased Weight Gain And Disease?
There has been a lot of speculation from doctors, dieticians, and even people in the fitness industry, as to why Americans are getting heavier. With all these different theories flying around it can be very overwhelming for those who actually want to “take the bull by the horns” and try to lose weight. While every new fat burning pill, exercise gadget, diet book/plan, comes out in the market like clockwork, Americans are still growing heavier and heavier. I believe there are two distinct things that have caused the obesity rate to skyrocket to over 50% of the population. Things that people never would have imagined.
The Birth Of The Food Pyramid
I believe the first reason for increased weight gain is that carbohydrates in the form of grains and sugars have been labeled and even recommended as “safe” for consumption by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This doesn’t sound that bad at first glance, until you realize that our grain supply is universally contaminated by a fungus…which is reason two! It’s interesting to note that in the late 70’s the U.S. Department of Agriculture warned that consuming high fat foods was bad. Then in the 90’s it was applied to all “fats” as “bad and should be consumed in small quantities.” This is where butter, bacon, eggs, meats, oils, etc were shoved to the side while bread, cereals, and pasta became the staple of health. This is why you see fats at the top (to be used sparingly) of the pyramid and bread at the bottom.
Why I Believe Following The Food Pyramid Is Dangerous To Your Health
This food system was pushed so hard on doctors and dieticians until the general public caught on to the idea as truth. We simply jumped on for the ride. Americans bought into it without even realizing what just happened. No one seemed to notice that the ones involved with creating the popular Food Pyramid were not scientists or highly educated nutritionists. In reality, the entire system was brought into existence by a group of lawyers under Senator George McGovern! How crazy is that?? We now have felt the tidal wave of misinformation as we are continually cautious of fat in foods. It’s like harboring a fat phobia even though we know that margarine is dangerous while eggs, avocados, and nuts actually decrease risks of heart disease. So you may be wondering, what does all this information have to do with my waistline? Stick with me and I will show you how it all comes together.
Why It Is Relevant To Study Weight Gain In Animals
The word “animal” is defined as “a living sentient organism that has membranous cell walls, requires oxygen and organic foods and is capable of voluntary movement.” To label a human as an “animal” is definitely insulting and I am in no way saying that an animals’ life is as worthy as a human. But for metabolic and scientific purposes, we are considered animals. This is crucial for understanding how fungus can cause weight gain in animals and why it is relevant to humans.
I Don’t Believe High Fat Foods Is The Sole Reason For Weight Gain
Low-fat this and low-fat that, I can’t escape it! Since the food pyramid has infested the minds of dieters, the response to why people gain weight is often the knee-jerk answer of “eating too much fatty food.” Well let’s think about this for a moment. Why is it that both animals and humans continue to gain so much weight while on low-fat to even no-fat diets? It’s very interesting to know that farmers understand this concept better than anyone. They fatten their livestock by feeding them a predominately high carbohydrate diet of grains and grass, and not one of high fat. Farmers know that this strategy demonstrates the ease of conversion of carbohydrates into fat. But they don’t stop there!
Antibiotics: Livestock’s Weight Gaining Program And Not For Disease Prevention
Feeding livestock nothing but carbohydrates is nothing new but adding antibiotics to the weight gaining program definitely is! It is known that livestock feed is laced with millions of pounds of antibiotics. Did you read that right…I said millions. I’m sure your first thought is that farmers give antibiotics to the animals to protect them from disease. Well the problem is that agribusinesses feed the livestock that is laced with antibiotics to promote growth, not for disease. If it wasn’t for the abuse of antibiotics, there is simply no reason for livestock to get sick in the first place. Think about it. Why would you give antibiotics to a healthy animal?
So How Is Fungus Involved And What Role Does It Play In Weight Gain?
Carbohydrates like grains are universally contaminated by fungus. So a high carbohydrate diet (rich in grains) causes weight gain in both humans and animals, while the addition of antibiotics enhances weight gain. Well did you know that antibiotics are fungal derivatives? Whether antibiotics are ingested or injected, the body is the fungus’ new home. It’s more important to know that once fungus enters the body, it is able to manipulate the host to force its own will and purposes. It is also important to comment on the previous question of “what do you think makes bread rise?” Yeast! Did you know that yeast is also a form of fungus? If a fungus like that causes bread to rise, think about what it does in your body.

Fungus Needs Carbohydrates To Survive And Thrive
Do you find yourself craving sugary and starchy foods all the time? Foods like sweets, grains, potatoes, pasta and bread. Sometimes the cravings are so intense that you can’t seem to get enough. Have you always been like that? If not, think about a time when your diet seemed to change overnight. Did you go to the doctor for a simple illness and was prescribed antibiotics? Remember, antibiotics are fungal derivatives and they have now taken residence in your body. Since the parasitic fungus needs carbohydrates to survive, it manipulates your body and causes you to crave sugary and starchy foods. Now you have a pantry stocked with foods that continue to fuel the fungus while you progressively gain weight.
A Calorie Is Still A Calorie…But
It is still a general rule that if you consume more calories than what your body burns you will still gain weight. But it has to be noted that the presence of fungus is the exception to the rule. A calorie is still a calorie, but the ones we get from fungal contaminated grains and other foods have growth promoting components. So you may actually be gaining weight without actually overeating. I still have to make a comment that people do underestimate how much they actually eat. It also doesn’t help that people may be overeating because of the strong influence that fungus has in regards to igniting cravings thus causing weight loss to come to a screeching halt. If fungus can be starved and killed, cravings for high carbohydrate foods that cause excess weight gain will diminish. Eating less will be much easier, so fat loss will be quicker and more effective.
Ok This Article Is Super Long
Since the article is extremely long I figured I would have to wait and write a separate one on how to effectively starve and kill the fungus. There is so much more to write about because I have only scratched the surface in regards to the fungus link to weight loss. I have wanted to write about this for a long time but have struggled with the proper approach. This issue is such a big deal to me and I strongly feel that millions of lives will be changed due to the restoration of their health, and not just for weight loss. If you don’t want to wait on me I highly recommend reading the book.
