How to Destroy Late Night Cravings by Frederic Patenaude

Have you noticed that almost all cravings for unhealthy foods come in the evening or at night?

I’ve heard that cravings are caused by low-blood sugar, food addiction, emotional eating, yin/yang imbalance, hormonal problems, dehydration, and nutritional deficiencies.

In my experience, none of these reasons are the cause of food cravings in most people.

80% of the time, food cravings are caused by:

Under-eating complex carbohydrates or fruit
Poor planning: you just don’t have enough tasty, healthy meals available at the right time

Let’s take a closer look.

The first reason is often overlooked. You’re not eating enough of the foods your body needs to be satisfied and maintain its energy levels.

Many popular diets tell you to fill up on vegetables — which contain virtually no calories. Plenty of vitamins and minerals, but none of the main thing that your body actually needs the most: glucose.

Other diets tell you to fill up on fat, such as found in nuts and seeds, olive oil, and avocado. But fat is the least satiating type of macronutrient — and every experiment done has proved this. You can sneak in extra calories in the form of oil in the food and people eat the same quantity (but more calories) without feeling more satisfied.

Protein can be satiating because it tends to curb feelings of hunger. But eating high-protein food doesn’t give you what your body actually craves: glucose. So that’s why people still crave sugar after a high-protein, “low-carb” meal, and eventually fall off the wagon to binge on rolls and other refined carbs like desserts!

When you give your body plenty of healthy, whole food sources of glucose — as in whole fruit, and healthy starches (rice, potatoes, beans, etc.) — cravings miraculously go away.

My mom lost 60+ pounds eating as many of those foods as she cared for, without counting calories. And thousands of people have done the same.

I hope that I’m not bragging by saying that I never get food cravings for things like chocolate, ice-cream, desserts, decadent food, chips, etc. Why? Because I’m not restricting at all the one category of nutrient that my body needs the most!

Poor Planning

People often tell me: “if I had a personal chef making me tasty, high raw, low-fat vegan recipes at home — then maybe I could do this diet. But I just don’t have the time!”

My fridge is always stocked with a ton of super-healthy meals that I prepare in advance, in a flash. I’m prepared, therefore I don’t have cravings!

If you get bored with your food, you’ll crave something else. If you open the fridge and tasty, healthy food greets you, you’re not going to be looking for something else. It’s that simple!

Another problem is that most raw food recipes are either too complicated, or too unhealthy, often loaded with fats and oils.

You don’t have 100% perfect to make this diet work.

You only have to focus all of your attention on the things that truly matter — what I call the 20% that gives you 80% of the results.

Eat enough whole fruit and complex carbohydrates
Have a system for food prep that rotates tasty meals that are easy to prepare in advance.

Don’t aim at perfection. Choose a program that works and makes you happy. Focus on just a few changes that will make the biggest difference in your health, rather than trying to change everything.

Maybe your food is not always organic. Maybe you might add some salt and seasonings to your food, instead of eating everything plain. So what? As long as you focus on the 20% that matters, you’ll get 80% of the results, and more!

Why I Was So Wrong About Blood Tests by Frederic Patenaude

Why I Was So Wrong About Blood Tests by Frederic Patenaude

I recently got my yearly blood tests done.

I’m planning on sharing my results in a future blog post, as I’ve done in the past openly on my website.

Whenever I post my blood test results, I always get lots of comments from my readers, and I often notice that there are a lot of myths running around about blood tests.

These myths have been circulating in the natural health world for a while, so I think it’s important to spell some of them out and hopefully help you understand how powerful it is to have blood testing in your disease-prevention corner.

I have to be clear before I start that blood testing is an essential tool to determining how your body is reacting to your environment, but testing isn’t the only marker of good health – it’s one of many.

1. MYTH: Blood tests don’t mean anything because the levels are inaccurate and based on unhealthy people. I feel healthy, so I don’t need them.

I used to believe this statement.

I believed it so strongly that I resisted blood tests even when I wasn’t feeling good.

By the time I got my first blood tests, I was deficient in many things – I was even outside some of the clinical ranges for unhealthy people.

Apparently my belief system and what I was doing was flawed.

When I started to break down my belief about blood testing, I began to understand some of the things I was fighting against.

First, I was fighting against the medical institution. My thought was this: much of what they do is wrong, so blood testing must be wrong too.

Second, I knew the levels were based on a sample of the general population so they were of no interest to me, since I was “healthy.” (This belief is partially true – at least the general population part.)

Third, I didn’t want to see any results that would go against the diet I was eating, because I was so strongly stuck in the dogma of it. I wasn’t going to change anyway.

You may have had some of these same beliefs – you may still have them.

It wasn’t until after my own health challenges that I looked at my beliefs objectively.

Only then, was I able to understand where I went wrong and why my beliefs were getting in the way of my best health.

Here’s what I realized…

Just because I was angry at the medical institution, didn’t mean that there is nothing valuable that has come from our science of medicine.

I was filtering everything in black and white.
Natural = good.
Medical = bad.
This is clearly not the case.

Blood tests can accurately show clinical disease as well as give you an idea of where you’re trending over the period of months and years.

The trick is you need to find a practitioner trained in functional medicine or preventative medicine who can read optimal levels, not clinical levels.

For those who don’t understand what this means…

Clinical levels are guidelines that determine if you can be clinically diagnosed with a disease. Optimal levels are based on clinical experience and can be much different than the clinical levels.

Knowing these optimal levels also helps to transcend the “general population” myth as well. The numbers on the lab worksheet tell a story about everyone, you just need to know how to read them.

2. MYTH: All doctors know how to read blood tests.

This second myth goes hand in hand with the first one, but I think it needs to be addressed separately.

Many people who find natural health do so because they’ve been ticked off (probably a nice word for it) by their doctor. They have symptoms and no one can tell that what is wrong.

Their doctor has ordered some blood tests and told them nothing is wrong, but they still feel tired or weak or worse.

What has happened here is not a failure of the blood test (which some people assume), it’s a failure of the medical education system.

There is plenty of knowledge about how to accurately and appropriately use blood tests (as well as others like saliva and urine) to treat patients who don’t fit into the medical model of disease.

The challenge is that this model is not being taught in medical schools.

So to think that just because one doctor or one failure of the system is enough to lose complete faith is not a particularly strong argument.

3. MYTH: Getting tested once is just a snapshot of my blood, it won’t mean anything…

This maybe isn’t a myth because it’s correct.

What’s incorrect is that this shouldn’t stop you from getting your blood tested.

Getting tested more than once and on a regular basis provides you with true and valuable information about your health. One time is not enough if you want the best preventative approach.

Look at it this way…

If you were to look at one day of a day trader’s stock ticker, you’d think that the market was crashing and rebounding every 6 minutes.

But if you take a look at the 5 year trend of the market, you can see very clearly where there was financial wealth and where there were problems.

Same with blood testing. If you have just one test, it gives you a snapshot, but not an overall picture of health. (There also could be lab error in this test as well.)

Regular testing establishes a pattern that you can read to understand how your health is trending for the long term – are you moving toward great health, or slowly (maybe quickly) moving toward deficiency and disease.

Is it more expensive, sure.

Does it require more effort, yes.

Will it make a difference in your health and quality of life, absolutely.

My Last Belief About Blood Tests

My last belief about blood testing was the hardest to crack – and the most irrational of all of them.

I believed so strongly in the principles of my diet, that I decided any blood test wouldn’t change what I was doing anyway. I was very far removed from actualities of my situation and my dogma of the long term raw and vegan diet. (I still strongly support this diet as well as a high raw diet as a lifestyle!)

I made up any and all excuses not to get tested – even spoke against blood testing – because I was convinced it wouldn’t help me.

Even if I did get tested, I figured, again that my levels wouldn’t mean anything, because the diet would take care of everything.

As you know, if you’ve been following the work we do, that was a very flawed and dangerous belief. I’m glad I no longer have it.

So here’s where I’m going…

“Believing” that blood tests are inaccurate and unnecessary is simply that – a belief. It’s not a fact.

They can be a very effective tool – I feel essential – for monitoring your health for preventative reasons.

It would be a shame if your belief system stopped you from getting your blood tested. Particularly, if that blood test could have noticed a small deficiency that progressed into an illness or a disease.

The bottom line, is that blood testing – whether you “believe” in it or not – is a very important tool for determining your long term health.

Please don’t let your ideals get in the way of your own personal health. It happened to me and didn’t turn out so well

I challenge you to take the next step, regardless of what you think, and get a test or two. You may find out something that will change your life and health for the better.

You may even find out that the healthy program you’re on is working!

What’s Next?

Once you have the basic tests done, you need to be able to understand them. For that we highly recommend the Complete Blood Test Blueprint, by Dr. Williams.

Many physicians may be a bit too conservative or aggressive when it comes to certain test results so we think that Dr. Williams has provided a fantastic resource to analyze your own results and discuss them with your doctor after.

You’ll know exactly what each result means AND you’ll know what you can do to change them, if you need to.

Review of Hesta Organic: Organic Cotton is the best on your skin and for the health of the environment & planet

Hesta Women’s Organic Cotton Basic Panties/Briefs Underwear 3 Pack (Apparel)
This review is posted on Amazon.

Why would I choose to spend more money on my undergarments, when I could buy ones that are much cheaper?

There are many reasons – here are a few:
1- NO chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, GMO’s are used to grow the cotton and cotton is one of the highest laden pesticide crops on the planet
2- For the health of my own body – as what is on my skin (clothes I wear, soaps,lotions and creams I use) leach out through the pores into the body, especially when I sweat, so if it is conventional cotton, then the chemicals are going from the skin into my body and directly into the bloodstream. Most important are the garments that are closest to the skin, especially when it comes to more sensitive and private areas, that goes for bras or tank tops, as well.
3- For the health of the environment & planet – what is planted in the the ground and grown in the soil, affects the health of all of nature, including people, plants, animals, bees, air, etc. If we can all do one more thing to help change the status of the earth, it would he to use more organic products, whether textiles, food, skin care, etc. We can turn the tide by demanding more organic because are using it more and will create more need for organic farms and farms. This all leads to a more sustainable environment that benefit all creations.

This is a great product and the company does everything right! They understand the importance of organic and are GOTS certified, which is the highest standard for textiles. They do not use any dyes, bleaches and toxic sustances to make their products. They are environmentally friendly and cause no harm to your body.

I like that it comes in a 3 pack, so can use and then wash and have another to wear. I also very highly recommend that you use a mild soap like Dr. Bronner’s that has no sodium lauryl sulfate or other sulfates that are not good for you and hand wash and let it air dry. You may not have thought of this, but it makes sense, as why would you buy something organic, whether clothes or food and then use chemical detergent or tap water to clean it and then you are defeating the purpose!

The material is super soft, fits comfortably and is breathable and I am happy to support organic products (for my health and the planet) and this company.

Please do check out my youtube channel: TheRawsomeVeganGal, as I will have a video review of this product on there, as well.

15 Tips to Eliminate Salt by Frederic Patenaude

15 Tips to Eliminate Salt by Frederic Patenaude

Today, I want to share with you some tips on how to achieve a “no-salt diet.”

But first, let’s clarify a few points about salt.

1) Salt is not an essential nutrient. Contrary to common belief, salt is not a necessary nutrient. Two components of salt are essential to health: sodium and chloride. Both are found in natural foods in the amounts that we need.

2) We don’t need more sodium than what’s in natural foods. Sodium requirements are so low compared to the average intake that even the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) could not even establish a minimum requirement. US guidelines for RDAs (Required Daily Amounts) states that “the minimum average requirement for adults … [is]… 115 mg of Sodium…per day. In consideration of the wide variation of patterns of physical activity and climate exposure, a safe minimum intake might be set at 500 mg/day.”

3) Sea salt is NOT any better. It is still mostly composed of sodium chloride and using it in any amount will cause an electrolyte imbalance in most people, damaging your health over time. The trace minerals found in tiny amounts in sea salt are better obtained from natural foods.

4) All the tribes who lived on a no-salt diet were found to be in much better health with no hypertension with aging. Some of them ate a diet high in meat, smoked or drank alcohol. On the other hand, tribes who also lived a similar lifestyle but used salt had a high incidence of hypertension.

5) Human beings evolved on a low-sodium diet. Therefore our kidneys are adapted to conserve sodium. Salt is NOT paleo! Most humans never had any access to salt up to relatively recently in history.

6) Exceptions to the rule don’t change the rule. The fact that some people might need to add salt to their diet due to rare health problems or the use of salt exceptional athletic circumstances does not invalidate the general point that our health would be better if the vast majority of people consumed less much salt.

7) 99.4% of the population consumes more than the 1500 mg. limit of sodium set by the American Heart Association. So the argument that “many people run into health problems by not consuming enough salt” does not hold water.

8) Optimal blood pressure is under 115/75. Any improvement you can make in your blood pressure numbers will vastly improve your health outcomes!

9) Even if you consume salt and have an optimal blood pressure of under 115/75, it does not mean that you should keep consuming salt. 95-99% of people develop essential hypertension if they eat salt, as long as they live long enough. Some people develop it at 35, while others at 85.

10) Salt consumption destroys your health in other ways. It causes kidney damage, increases your odds of stomach cancer and kidney stones as well as auto-immune disease. It may cause acne and aggravate insomnia. It creates oxidative stress.

Dr. James Kenney, Ph.D., writes in “Diet, Hypertension and Salt Toxicity”:

There is growing evidence that HTN is merely a symptom of an underlying nutritional imbalance caused largely by an excessive intake of salt. Salt intake was found to correlate more closely with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), cerebrovascular disease, microproteinuria (an early sign of kidney disease), and reduced arterial compliance than BP. A recent review found that “there is clinical and experimental evidence… that salt intake directly affects hypertensive renal disease, cerebrovascular disease, and compliance of the large arteries. The close and partially independent correlation between salt intake and hypertensive target organ disease suggests dietary sodium to be a direct perpetrator of cardiovascular disease.”85 Simply put HTN is just one of many symptoms that can result from the damaging effects of chronic salt toxicity.

Are you ready to take the no-salt pledge? Here’s how to do it:

1- Stop eating foods that don’t taste good without salt

One of the best things about eliminating salt from your diet is that it will steer you in the right direction of eating. Fruits taste great without salt. It’s also not difficult to make a tasty salad without the stuff. Tubers (potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.), as well as vegetables in general, are great without it. Unprocessed grains and beans can be pretty good given the right mixture. Nuts, seeds, and avocado: excellent.

As for pasta and bread: unpalatable even with the right combo of spices. But it’s so processed anyway so why it eat?

Processed foods: they all have to go because they are loaded with salt. The same applies to restaurant foods. At the same time, you’ll eliminate 75% of the foods that make people sick.

2- Read ALL the labels

It’s surprising where you can find salt and high sodium content. My mom was fooled by “Bragg’s Liquid Aminos” because there’s “no salt added.” It packs in as much sodium as soy sauce! Salt is often sometimes added to nut butter and other healthy foods even by organic companies. It’s also almost impossible to find a protein powder without added salt. Those in the market for a good protein powder should take a look at “Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein.” It’s one of the rare brands without added salt.

3- Be patient

Depending on a few factors, it takes a few weeks to neuro-adapt to a low-sodium diet. When this happens, you’ll sometimes pinch yourself thinking that you’ve added salt to your food, because you finally start tasting the natural sodium in it!

4- Use lime or lemon juice on everything

The receptors for “salty” and “sour” on the tongue are very close to each other. One trick to make the food taste “salty” is to add some fresh lime or lemon juice to almost everything you eat!

5- Learn to use whole spices

So you’re going to leave salt behind. How do you pack more flavor into your dishes? The solution is to use high-quality, whole spice mixes! You need to grind spices before each use for maximum flavor. Do not buy those pre-made, ground spice mix. They only taste good with salt!

I have discovered spices from a Canadian company that is unparalleled. Plus, the prices are good. They have a ton of recipes on their website. Their website is: http://spicetrekkers.com

6- Use fresh herbs

Always have one or two bunches of fresh herbs on hand. I particularly like Italian parsley (leaves are flat), cilantro and basil.

7- Know about this “salty” seasoning

Potassium chloride is bitter and unappealing. But you can get a salt-replacement to get over the hump of neuro-adaptation called “Table Tasty Salt Substitute.”

It’s the “saltiest” salt replacement I have found. Some might object to the yeast extract. However it’s a good company, I haven’t seen any negative use from occasional use, and it’s a great tool in the box to have to get over the salt habit.

8- Add mangoes!

When you remove salt, you sometimes have to add a bit of sweetness. Otherwise, some dishes, such as salads, can taste too bland. Diced mangoes will be your friend! You can almost add them to everything, but I particularly like them in salads.

9- Make avocados your friend

Avocados pack a lot of flavor and nutrition. You can add diced or mashed avocado to many dishes to instantly transform them from “okay” to “wow!”

10- Enjoy balsamic vinegar

Go and get some gourmet balsamic vinegar. A few drops do change everything! I don’t particularly like the fruit vinegars that are recommended by some health experts. Balsamic is the time-tested classic.

11- Use nutritional yeast

Nutritional yeast can also add a lot of flavor to some dishes.

12- Get your favorite condiments without salt

It’s amazing what you can find on Amazon. I could not find mustard or hot sauce without salt anywhere until I looked on Amazon. Here are a few good finds:

Organic Mustard.
Tomato Sauce.
No-BPA beans (You can find this brand in most health food stores, but if you live in the US, it’s a good buy on Amazon)
Hot Sauce.

13- Do many of the above, at the same time

Food will taste great if you combine my tips all at the same time. Make a salad and add mangoes, diced avocado, balsamic vinegar, fresh herbs, nutritional yeast and a bit of spice and I guarantee that you won’t miss the salt! The same goes for other dishes. Cook a lentil stews, add in freshly ground spices such as the Berberé Mix from “Épices de Cru,” lime juice and chopped cilantro and you’ll call me to say it was the best meal you’ve had in a while!

14- Go all the way

“Reducing salt” does not work. Health agencies have been encouraging the public to “reduce salt” for decades, and it has not worked. When you eat salt, you crave salt. It’s as simple as that. When you get rid of it entirely, your taste buds adapt, and you reap the rewards.

Any drop in blood pressure results in improved health until you’re down to at 115/75 and perhaps even 110/70. This is well documented scientifically.

Author Andrew Perlot, who has an excellent YouTube channel, did an experiment where he added only one-quarter of a teaspoon of salt to his diet for a year. He documented the results in his video.

What’s interesting about Andrew’s experiment is that he was still below the lowest recommended intake of 1500 mg. of sodium a day. Like I’ve said before, only 0.6% of the population eats that little sodium.

Just by adding about 500 mg. of extra sodium a day, he significantly raised his blood pressure.

15- Be Patient (Again)

One problem with a lot of the research done on sodium restriction is that they focus only on the short-term effect of going from a high-salt intake to a moderate salt intake.

According to Dr. James Kenney, Ph. D., author of a fascinating paper or salt toxicity:

Unfortunately, the long-term effects of a low-salt diet have received little attention. After an initial drop in BP, which can be fairly large in some individuals, the decline in BP often continues for many months or years, provided the salt restriction is maintained. For example, one group of researchers found that BP was still trending downwards after two years on a diet with about 70 mEq (1600 mg of sodium).84 Given that the BP raising effects of excessive dietary salt take many years to develop it is surprising that most clinicians expect to see the full impact of a low-salt diet within just a few weeks. In my clinical experience, it may take as long as 5 to 7 years to see the full BP lowering impact of a low-salt diet.

Conclusion

I hope I have convinced some of you to try ditching the salt habit. There’s more to cover about this topic, but I think I have given you a few good ideas to get rid of the salt in your diet starting today.

The Top 10 Myths About Eating Fruit by Frederic Patenaude

The Top 10 Myths About Eating Fruit by Frederic Patenaude

Fruit is a symbol of “health food,” yet it’s also the one natural food that’s vilified the most by many trends of the natural health and raw food movements.

This unscientific trend has also been picked up by the largest proportion of the raw food theorists, many of which go to the extreme of saying that eating lots of sweet fruit is unnatural and unhealthy.

Even the Hippocrates Health Institute has launched a fear campaign on eating fruit, claiming that fruit eating is responsible for the common health problems experienced by the majority of raw foodists.

So let’s take a look at the most common myths about fruit, and bust them once and for all.

“Don’t eat too much fruit!”

“Fruit is fine as long as you stick to apples, grapefruit, berries and other fruits with a lower sugar content.”

This is what we hear from many health authors these days.

What’s up with the fear of fruit? Is it true that we should be careful with the sugar in fruit?
