Food Combining Simplified by Frederic Patenaude
Whenever I throw celery in a fruit smoothie, or add oranges in a salad, some people ask me “But wait… isn’t that against food combining rules?”

So let’s talk about food combining.

Dr. Herbert Shelton is responsible for most food combining theories. In his book, “Food Combining Made Easy,” he describes his food combining rules based on his experience serving meals to very sick patients at his fasting clinic. Many of his rules have been misinterpreted since. And for the remainder, he rarely gave any explanation, other than his personal experience.

There are no real “rules” of food combining. You must simply pay attention to your digestion.

Instead, here are a few principles that tend to improve digestion in most people:

#1 Don’t Combine Sugar and Fat (in large quantities)

The main combination to avoid is sugar and fat. Sugar being any type of sugar such as fruits, dates, refined sugar, or anything sweet. Fat includes oils, avocados, nuts, and any other type of fatty foods.

The reason is that fat takes a longer time to digest, while sugar tends to digest quickly. When the two are mixed together in sufficient quantities, the sugar will ferment. Say hello to gas and bloating!

So the combinations to avoid include: dates and nuts, nuts and dried fruits, adding fat to fruit smoothies (including oils, nuts, etc.), and obviously eating fruit or sweets at the end of a meal containing fat.

However, the main thing to remember is that QUANTITY is everything.

If you have a few almonds mixed with raisins, you’ll be fine. But if you eat the entire bag, you’re asking for trouble.

Same with fruit in salads: it’s perfectly okay to add some acidic fruits to a salad, like berries or citrus, even if that salad contains avocados. But don’t go pouring half the bottle of olive oil on top of it!

#2: Avoid Sugar and Starch

This is the combination of cooked starch and sugar, so this one obviously doesn’t apply to a raw food meal. Starch includes bread, potatoes, pasta, etc.

This combinations can lead to a lot of gas and fermentation. Examples include: raisin bread, all pastries, all cakes, all cookies, etc.

But again, quantity is everything.

Unnecessary Rules

There are several “rules” of food combining that are really unnecessary. Let me give you a few:

Melons – There’s no reason to avoid eating melons with other fruits. You can mix melons with any other fruit you want, without any problems. Even Shelton said so.

Fruits – Fruits may be combined with each other without problems. There’s no need to only eat fruits of certain categories together.

Tomatoes – Although we eat tomatoes as a vegetable, it is a fruit in reality so it may be combined with other fruits if desired.

Greens Don’t Count – Greens such as lettuce, celery, spinach, and other green leaves, don’t even count in food combining. The reason is that they combine well with anything. They combine well with fruit as well as with any other food.

Simplify Combos

The whole idea about food combining is to simplify meals. It means that a meal with five ingredients will digest more easily than a meal with ten. And a meal with two ingredients will be easier to digest than a meal with five.

It’s more important to vary our diet from meal to meal, rather than get all that variety in one meal!

As you learn more about food combining and a simple and easy raw food diet, you’ll find that it’s really the best way to stay healthy with a “silent” digestion, and best of all, it’s also so enjoyable to eat that way!

More Dangerous Than Processed Foods by Frederic Patenaude

More Dangerous Than Processed Foods by Frederic Patenaude

I used to think that eating processed foods was the worst possible thing you could do to your body.

I still think it’s in the top three, but after spending a lot of time over the last few years with some really sharp clinical practitioners, I’ve learned a few things about truly one of the worst things you can do to the body.

How can you prevent burnout as well as help you adrenals rebuild if you’re trashed them with stress, stimulants or nutritional deficiencies.

The Worst Thing You Can Do to Your Body?

One of the worst things that you can do to your body besides the obvious – drugs, eating junk food, excess sugar, etc – is putting it through emotional and environmental stress.

I know, you’ve heard me talk about the dangers of stress before, but let me get into a little more detail.

It’s not the actual stress that wrecks your health, it’s the chemical changes it causes in your body.

This is why it is possibly one of the worst things you can subject your body to.

As you know, stress can come from various sources…

Your thoughts
Your job
Your relationships
Over exercise
Excess sugar
Use of stimulants (coffee, teas, cacao, drugs)
These six things (and more) all can increase the amount of cortisol in the body.

Excess cortisol can interfere with a bunch of different processes causing poor health.

First is immunity.

If you have too much cortisol, you suppress immune function by suppressing the activity of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. This prevents the release of neurotransmitters that help immune function.

So basically, all you’ve heard about stress being related to illness is dead on.

If you’re stressed out, you’re going to get sick.

Second is how your metabolism is regulated and what you crave.

When you have too much stress, you can crave salty or fatty foods, or refined sugar.

Cravings of these foods are very real.

Many times, when you fix the adrenals and eliminate the stress, you can get rid of some of the physiological cravings – the emotional ones require a different set of skills to eliminate!

Third are cardiovascular issues.

Poor adrenal function leads to changes in how your body regulates heart rate and blood pressure.

Inability to regular your cardiovascular system can lead to poor circulation, high or low blood pressure and all diseases related to these issues, particularly hypertension.

Fourth is thinner skin and weaker bones.

Excess cortisol is directly related to thinner skin and weaker bones.

Weaker bones are related to the inability of hormones to regular body processes as well as the excess acidity that is created in the body when excess cortisol is present.

Managing stress and making sure you have plenty of minerals and vitamin D is a much better strategy than drugs for those who have symptoms or signs of osteoporosis.

I hope that helps you understand why you need to take care of your adrenals.

I know from experience what it’s like to have adrenal fatigue and it’s not anything I’d wish on anyone.

The best thing to do is take preventative steps to make sure it doesn’t happen to you, instead of waiting until you’ve damaged your adrenals and then struggle to fix them.

Is Acid Wreaking Your Teeth? by Frederic Patenaude

Check out below some great deals on Frederic’s health products.
These offers/prices can change at any time, so do not delay!

Is Acid Wreaking Your Teeth? by Frederic Patenaude

There’s a threat to the health of your teeth that you may not recognize.

It’s called acidity.

Our saliva is naturally alkaline and prevents enamel erosion by supplying minerals to the teeth in between meals.

However, when the saliva becomes more acidic, more bacteria thrive and produce more acids, which eats away at our enamel.

But another more common threat is the onslaught of acid from the foods we eat.

A little acidity is good — our bodies can deal with it and restore alkaline balance after a meal. But when our enamel is already weak, and we start feeling the effects (sensitive teeth, cavities, etc.), we must give our teeth a break from all this acid!

Another problem is that we expose our teeth to acids more than ever before.

We drink healthy juices, or smoothies, which are often made with acidic fruits like apples, lemons or citrus.
We drink apple cider vinegar, hibiscus tea or lemon water.
We squeeze lime juice all over our food or use balsamic vinegar in an attempt to use less salt or improve flavor.
We drink wine, coffee, and other highly acidic beverages.
Acid is everywhere!

If you’ve been experiencing problems with your teeth, it may be time to give yourself a break from this acid onslaught.

It may be a chance to go on an acid-free diet! Not forever, but to give your teeth enough time to build back some enamel and get strong again.

Here are some foods to avoid during this “acid-free diet.”

Balsamic and all vinegar
Lemon, lime juice
Citrus
Many other fruits: berries, apples, mangoes, grapes, etc.
Coffee, wine
Pickles and fermented vegetables
Tomatoes and tomato products
Soda
I’m not saying that all of the acid-containing foods I just mentioned are unhealthy. Many are super healthy! But, when you want to rebuild your enamel, it’s essential to minimize or avoid these foods for a while.

Instead, you can eat all of the non-acidic foods, such as:

Nonacidic fruits: melons, papayas, bananas, dates, persimmons, etc.
Most vegetables (But beware: many become acidic when roasted).
Most foods you can think of that don’t taste acidic (whole grains, beans, avocados, etc.)
Acid Vs. Acid-Forming

It’s important to understand that a food item can be acidic (contain acids) but be alkaline-forming after digestion, while other food items can be alkaline or neutral, but become acidic after digestion. This is due to the mineral balance in the food and the presence of acid-forming amino acids. That is why most acidic fruits are alkaline-forming while most animal products are acid forming. Grains are slightly acid forming.

Of course, we’re talking about the contact of acid with your teeth, which is different. Ideally, you would want to eat a predominantly alkaline-forming diet that’s also low in acids.

The Acid-Free Diet Is Not Enough

The acid-free diet will help give your teeth a break and enable the rebuilding of enamel. However, you also need to ensure that you’re doing everything you can to turn actively around your dental health for the better.

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just eating less acid alone does not guarantee you’ll become cavity-proof.

Find out the exact method that I use to reverse and prevent dental problems, make sure to get the new edition of our program “How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters.”

In it, you will discover:

• How to care for your teeth (forget the TV commercials!)
• What you can do for your teeth if you already have decay above or below the gumline, pain, bleeding or loose teeth…
• Why the dental industry on purpose wants you to come back for more visits with new problems to “fix” every time.

• And much more

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just eating less sugar does not address the root of the problem (although there are important nutritional steps you can take to make your teeth cavity-proof).

How to “Survive” Air Travel by Frederic Patenaude

Check out below some great deals on Frederic’s health products.
These offers/prices can change at any time, so do not delay!

How to “Survive” Air Travel by Frederic Patenaude

I travel maybe once a month on average by plane, so over the years I’ve come up with a few ways to stay healthier doing something that is often a source of stress for most people.

A few of my tips have nothing to do with food. When you travel, your primary concern is to avoid or reduce stress. Stress will take a huge toll on the body and add to the fatigue of traveling. If you’re crossing time-zones, you’re putting your body under even more stress.

So my goal when traveling by plane is to lower stress as much as possible. Every tip I will give you has something to do with that goal. If you make flying a pleasant experience, your digestion and overall health will improve.

1) Get a 9 a.m. flight if you can

This is a tip that I picked up years ago from an airline employee. During weekdays, 9 a.m. is the best time to fly. Why? All the rush hour is over. Business travel must arrive at their destination BY 9 or 10 a.m, so they take the 6 and 7 a.m. flights. By 9 a.m., the airport is empty. Any flight between 9 and 11 a.m will be during a time where the airport is practically empty. You will breeze through security and get to relax at the lounge much sooner!

2) Bring Snacks

I always bring healthy snacks with me on the plane and to the airport. Most people don’t realize they can bring fresh fruit and produce as long as they are “prepared,” even when fruit is otherwise forbidden. For example, you can’t leave Hawaii with a fresh pineapple, but you can cut up the pineapple in a fruit salad and bring that in a container.

Fresh fruit is king for flying. It’s truly the best food you can eat, along with water-rich vegetables like bell peppers, celery, and cucumbers (and yes, I realize that two of those vegetables are technically fruits, but give me a break! We do eat them like vegetables).

You don’t want to bring too much and then be burdened by excess weight. I typically bring the following:

Ginger chews (to avoid motion sickness). Available in health food stores.
A big bowl of fruit salad, with plastic utensils and napkins (don’t forget that part!)
2-3 healthy snack bars
A small bag of nuts or dried fruit, or both

3) Drink water

On the plane, drink plenty of water. However, don’t go crazy and drink so much that you have to constantly go to the bathroom. If you’re taking a night flight and you’re trying to get some rest, that can impair your ability to sleep.

There’s no set formula for how much you should drink, although some people suggest certain amounts by hours of flying. Essentially, you want to prevent dehydration. As long as your urine remains relatively clear and abundant, you’re doing a good job. If it gets very yellow, you’re becoming dehydrated.

4) Considering eating only fruit

If you have a flight that’s only a few hours long, consider eating only fruit during your entire travel time. Personally, my digestion always gets messed up when I travel by plane. It’s probably because of stress related to my fear of flying. But fruit is the one food I can handle no matter what. Fruit is also water-rich, which helps keep you hydrated. You can also consume celery, and other cut up water-rich vegetables (but not a big salad with avocados, nuts, and dressing!).

If you’re flying longer, you may get hungry and need to eat something more than fruit. In this case, stick with foods that are easy to digest. Personally, I can’t handle a big salad when I travel by plane. But nuts and seeds work well. And I only eat airplane food when I’m sitting in business class (see more tips about business class below).

5) Drink green tea

If you need a “pick me up” while flying, drink green tea instead of other caffeinated beverages. Green tea is full of antioxidants that will help your health while flying. Bring your own tea bags and ask for hot water. If you’re in business class, they can make green tea for you.

6) Use Light Therapy

I use a website called “Jet Lag Rooster” to create a plan to follow before or after arriving at my destination.

The plan essentially involves resetting the circadian cycles by exposing yourself to light. The website explains everything, and they also have an iPhone app.

You will need a few pieces of gear if you want this to work:
An inexpensive travel lightbox
Dark sunglasses or shades
A night mask
This program really works. I’ve used it a few times and then traveled again without it, and it was night and day! It’s sometimes not easy to follow because you have to wake up very early at inconvenient times to expose yourself to light, but if you can, try to do the program as explained on the website. It will save you from huge amounts of stress and unpleasantness on your next international or cross-country trip.

7) Fly in business class

There’s a reason why business travelers fly in business or first class when flying internationally. It’s simply a more restful experience! You can sleep on a fully reclined seat or “bed” and be treated to a royal experience.

However, business class seats are not cheap, especially internationally.

I personally always fly business class when going international, but I never pay for it. I use the system I teach in the course “How to Travel the World for Free.”

Conclusion

Finally, the trick to remaining healthy while traveling by plane is lowering stress. Sure, you can boost your immune system marginally by consuming supplements and superfoods, but none of those things will have as much of a powerful effect on your health as lowering stress will.

Whatever you do, try to make flying a pleasant experience, and enjoy your trip!

More and more people these days are becoming intolerant to gluten, Celiacs, or simply avoiding gluten for their own dietary reasons. Gluten, however, can be a hard thing to kick, especially when you’ve been raised with having bread products with every meal.

Toast for breakfast – nope. Burger for lunch – no bun please. Garlic bread with your Italian dinner – so hard to resist. Believe us, we’re addicted to bagels and pizza just as much as the next person, so we can feel your pain.

As is usually the case when the consumer market changes so drastically as it has with gluten, the food producers have obliged with making progress in better and a greater variety of non-gluten products for everyone to enjoy.

There’s still a long way to go, but non-gluten products have at least come further than what they were when we were growing up – anyone else try rock-hard, flavorless, tiny sized gluten-free bread a decade ago?

Besides the greater presence of gluten-free products out there, there is a whole community now that supports the gluten-free diet. It can be overwhelming when you first cut out gluten, and now there are so many tips and articles to read to help you transition. There are a ton of foods out there that you may have never known had gluten in them until recently.

In an effort to help anyone who is currently gluten-free or who is looking to cut out more gluten from their diet, we wanted to put together a quick list of tips to follow to help avoid gluten without going crazy. We hope you get some use out of it!

Cook/bake your own food

The easiest way to avoid gluten is by cooking and baking your own food. You know exactly what is going into what you’re eating because you’re the one putting the ingredients into your food. If you’re extremely sensitive to gluten, this could be a good option to focus on.

And hey, you get to learn or improve on a new skill that makes new friends easily! And you get to show how yummy gluten-free food can be to your friends and family.

Bring snacks or toppings when going out to eat

Sometimes it can be hard eating out, especially if you’re a Celiac and you can get sick with even a trace of gluten.

To prevent this from happening, bring your own snacks and/or toppings when going out to eat. That way you won’t go hungry and you always have a back-up plan if you don’t see anything that would work for you to eat on the menu (or you don’t trust that there hasn’t been cross-contamination in the kitchen).

The same idea works for toppings – example: if you enjoy salads and love croutons – bring your own gluten-free version as a topping.

Check your medication

Check with your pharmacist about what is exactly in any medication you’re taking – surprisingly, a lot of medications contain the same protein that is in wheat, rye, and barley (as does a lot of mouthwash).

Gain a new perspective

Instead of moping around about the loss of enjoying your favorite wheat-based foods, celebrate the fact that this could be a wonderful new way to start implementing a healthier diet into your life.

Sure pizza may be a no-go for you now, but the fact that you can now eat healthy whole grains, like brown rice, corn, and quinoa will likely help improve your mood and your body will be strong and healthy. It only take a new perspective to change your thoughts about getting rid of gluten!

Be vigilant about reading labels

Even the products that you’ve used in the past can change their ingredients without notice, make sure to double check all ingredients on the packaged foods you buy at the grocery store to prevent doses of gluten from getting into your diet.

Popular packaged foods that usually include gluten can be pre-made broths, rice mixes, pasta sauces, and soy sauce, although there are many others out there too. Do your research, find trigger ingredient names that point to gluten (i.e. wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelt, Kamut®, etc), and avoid those. Easy peasy.

Use gluten-free substitutes

Bummed that you can no longer eat your favorite pasta dish or have donuts for breakfast? Chances are there is now a gluten-free version of those food items! Almost every food that traditionally has gluten in it, now has gluten-free alternatives.

Sure, they may not taste exactly like your favorite gluten food, but at least it’s something, right? And, similar to how much dairy-free and vegan food alternatives have progressed (vegan cheese anyone? yum!), gluten-free alternatives are only getting better in terms of their tastiness.

This goes for when you’re cooking/baking your own food as well – there are plenty of options these days for cooking with gluten-free ingredients, even for cakes and pastries!

Remember foods that are naturally gluten-free

And remember, you don’t have to find alternatives for everything, there are plenty of foods that are gluten-free friendly out there.

Fresh fruit and veggies, quinoa, teff, amaranth, polenta, buckwheat, corn, millet, and tapioca are all gluten-free, start using them as the base of your meals and get rid of the bread at every meal mindset.

Yes, some alcoholic drinks have gluten, too

Beer drinker? You may be sad to remember that beer is often times made from malted barley or wheat. There are more breweries these days that are offering at least one gluten-free beer to their customers, but there’s still a long way to go in the beer industry for the gluten intolerant.

If you don’t want to give up alcohol completely, there are plenty of alternative routes you can take while still avoiding gluten. These generally include cider, wine, sherry, spirits, port, and liqueurs.

Why No Oil? by Frederic Patenaude

Why No Oil? by Frederic Patenaude

One of the most common questions that I get is: why don’t you recommend oil?
What about coconut oil? Or extra-virgin olive oil? Or flax seed oil?

Why I Don’t Recommend Any Oil, Including Olive or Coconut Oil

I follow the lead of excellent doctors and researchers such as Dr. Esselstyn, McDougall, Barnard, Campbell, Klaper, Goldhammer (and many others) in my stance against oil.

I don’t use any oil, including olive or coconut — and never eat any except in circumstances where I’m not in full control of the food that I’m eating.

Once you’ve experienced going oil-free, you don’t want to go back. The benefits of eliminating oil from the diet are numerous, and you will feel many of them immediately.

You’ll have more energy. Oil is 100% pure fat with no protein or carbohydrate, and very few other nutrients. Fat is twice as concentrated in calories as carbohydrates, containing nine calories per gram vs. four for carbohydrates. You’ll have more energy eliminating oil because you eliminate a concentrated source of calories. You will replace those calories with foods that give more energy, such as fruit, healthy starches, vegetables, and whole nuts and seeds or avocados.

Your mood will improve. Again, consuming liquid fat means consuming fewer carbohydrates and healthy sources of protein. Whole carbohydrates contribute positively to serotonin production.

Your digestion will improve. Oil makes digestion sluggish. Liquid fat takes a lot more time to digest than carbohydrates. On an oil-free diet, your digestion will be excellent! You will never feel too full or experience discomfort after a meal, even if it is big.

You’ll lose body fat. You might think that eating so many carbohydrates makes you fat. But in reality, it’s the combination of carbohydrates and fat that promotes fat gain. Carbohydrates are burned as energy whereas fat can be stored directly as body fat. If one consumes both carbohydrates and fat in significant quantities, the carbohydrates will be used as energy and the fats will be stored as body fat (as long as total calories exceed what the body needs). Liquid fat (oil) are the easiest types of calories for the body to store as body fat.

Your blood sugar will improve. I used to check my blood sugar every day. Eating fat and especially meat has always caused the greatest spike in blood sugar. That’s because a high-fat diet lowers insulin sensitivity. In fact, beef causes more insulin production than white sugar.

Why No Oil?

Here are some more reasons to avoid oil:

1) Oil is a refined product and the most concentrated source of calories available anywhere. One tablespoon of oil contains 120 calories of pure fat with almost no other nutrients. Refined sugar is only 50 calories per tablespoon.

A few splashes of olive oil here and there can quickly add up to hundreds of extra calories that you don’t need. Worst of all, those calories are missing all the fiber and essential nutrients and are empty.

Multiple studies have found that adding fat to food makes people over-consume calories without realizing it because fat has a very low satiety factor compared to carbohydrates or proteins. Many of these fascinating findings are described in the book “Salt, Sugar, Fat.”

Remember: it takes 24 olives to make 1 TBS of olive oil. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never once added 24 olives to a single serving of salad.

2) Vegetable oils contribute to inflammation. Omega 6 fats contribute to inflammation in the body while omega-3 fats reduce it. But most vegetable oils have a ratio that dramatically favor omega-6 fats. We should seek to a dietary ratio of no more than four times the omega 6s vs. 3. Olive oil contains over ten times the omega-6 as omega-3, and many other oils are worst.

3) Olive oil doesn’t lower LDL cholesterol, in fact, it increases it. It’s a myth to think that olive oil is “heart healthy.” Studies have only shown that it lowers LDL cholesterol when it replaces animal fats like butter. But to add olive oil (and other vegetable oils) to an otherwise healthy diet increases LDL levels. If you want to raise your LDL levels even faster, then eat some coconut oil. As Dr. Williams recently pointed out in an article published on Renegade Health, vegans tend to eat too much coconut oil, and it does raise their LDL levels. There’s a lot of hype around coconut oil, but in my opinion it’s just another good way to get to a heart attack faster. (For the lowdown on coconut oil, watch this video by Dr. Greger.) Note: whole coconuts are healthy. You can eat them.

4) Olive oil injures the inner lining of the arteries (called endothelium). A study conducted by Dr. Robert Vogel and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology showed that a meal containing olive oil caused severe constrictions in arteries, contributing to heart disease. Consuming olive oil reduced blood flow by 31% in this study. It’s worth noting that canola oil or salmon didn’t cause this problem (however, all vegetable oils are unhealthy to some degree).

What studies found was that the protective components of the Mediterranean diet appear to be fruits and vegetables and nuts, and NOT the olive oil. Greek people only got away with eating olive oil because they consumed a lot of fruits and vegetables. They also replaced animal fats like butter with olive oil. But olive oil in itself isn’t healthy. (Note: Greece currently has the highest obesity levels in Europe and has the highest per-capita consumption of olive oil).

5) Oils release toxic compounds when heated. Many oils become carcinogenic when heated. And yes, every type of oil can withstand a different level of heat. But don’t believe for a second that nothing is happening to your oil when you start heating it. Udo Erasmus, one of the world’s most well-known experts on fats, always recommended to never heat any fat. He said: “If health is what we want, water is the only oil appropriate for frying. We’re back to steaming, poaching, boiling, or pressure cooking our foods. Or, even better in most cases, eating them raw.”

What about essential fats?

It’s true, we need some fats for good health. But all whole foods contain them to a certain degree, and in the perfect omega 3/6 ratio.

What’s my favorite source of essential fats? Green vegetables. Although the percentage is low, it contains omega 3s in the perfect ratio.

Additional fats should come from whole foods such as nuts, seeds, avocados, etc. Those foods contain fiber, vitamins, minerals, protein, and so many other critical nutrients that are missing from liquid fat calories.

I only take two tablespoons of ground flax seeds every day. I have tested my Omega-3 levels using a blood test, and I’m getting optimal results. My theory is that removing oil in the diet improves the omega-3 ratio because there’s no omega-6 to compete with the omega 3s. The body can fully convert the small amount of fatty acids naturally found in every whole food, including vegetables. Including flax seeds and walnuts or hemp is a good idea.

How to Transition to an Oil-Free Diet

Now, does that mean you can never have a splash of olive oil? If you’re very active and burn a lot of calories, a bit of olive oil probably won’t hurt you. But it’s better to go without it. Try giving it up and you’ll notice that your taste for oil will disappear. If you crave something fatty, have whole nuts and seeds instead, or even some nut butter. Eat some avocado. And whole coconuts contain ALL of the benefits of the coconut. Coconut oil is just pure fat. What could be tastier than a fresh, young coconut?

When I make a batch of hummus, I only use some tahini, but I don’t add any oil. The traditional recipe for hummus doesn’t contain any oil. I stopped purchasing the tahini brands that contain oil (most of them).

When I eat a salad, I usually eat it plain or with a simple seasoning of balsamic vinegar and maybe nutritional yeast. But I don’t add olive oil to it. I might add some diced avocado.

When I make rice and beans, or marinara sauce, I don’t stir-fry the onion and garlic in olive oil. I dry-sautee the onions and garlic until a little brown and then deglaze it with vegetable broth. No oil.

My taste buds have adapted to this oil-free diet. I now enjoy my food more without oil. It takes about 60-90 days for a person used to a diet of 30+% fat to adjust to lower-fat diet. Then when the transition is over, you will start to dislike oil and enjoy the taste of real, unrefined foods without added liquid fat.

True and False Hunger. What’s the Difference? by Frederic Patenaude

True and False Hunger. What’s the Difference? by Frederic Patenaude

You know about the dangers of processed foods.

You’ve heard plenty about GMOs, organic foods, vaccines, and many other health controversies.

Health experts will tell you to avoid meat or grains, depending on their belief.

You’ve heard about juicing, green smoothies, detox diets, fasting, and more.

But there’s one principle that nobody talks about. My first mentor Albert Mosseri used to say that it’s the most important one.

Is it emotions?

Is it meditation?

Is it food combining?

None of the above.

This principle is so important because even if you eat a conventional diet, you can use it to significantly improve your health and extend your life.

It’s a principle that allows you to get back in touch with your instincts and let your body decide what’s best for you.

It’s not easy to master at first, but once you practice it, it will become second nature.

What’s this health principle?

True Hunger.

Nobody talks about hunger. In fact, we get told to avoid hunger and eat three square meals a day. “Never skip breakfast,” they say!

When I say “hunger” I don’t mean starvation.

I also don’t mean the sensations that most people mistake for hunger.

You see, there’s a difference between “true hunger” and “false hunger.”

True hunger is when your body really needs food and is most able to digest and assimilate it.

False hunger is your appetite. It’s when food looks or smell good, or when you eat out of habit, or to avoid the symptoms of detox.

The Signs of False Hunger

You can recognize false hunger by paying attention to how you feel. Here are the sensations:

Headache?
Bad, dry, pasty mouth
Stomach gurgling
Feeling depressed, foggy mind
Tightness in stomach
Nausea
Hunger vanishing with time
Desiring a specific food
True hunger is different. It’s a pleasant sensation. It’s a demand for food.

True Hunger Symptoms

Empty stomach?
Watery mouth?
Optimistic mood?
Sharp and happy?
Hunger persisting over time?

When you experience true hunger, you are content with natural food. A simple salad or a bowl of fruit sounds like a great treat.

When you experience false hunger, you want something specific. “I feel like a burger or ice cream.”

With true hunger, you actually feel good.

With false hunger, you feel some discomfort: stomach gurgling, feeling tired, headaches.

False hunger disappears if you want. Wait an hour, and suddenly you’re not so hungry anymore.

True hunger gets stronger with time, and the more you wait, the more you’ll get hungry.

As an experiment to recognize true hunger, you might try skipping breakfast.

If you’re not used to it, you’ll feel “hungry” at around 10 or 11 a.m., and might experience some of the symptoms of false hunger I described.

If you wait, your “hunger” will pass. Most people will only get truly hungry at around noon or even 1 or 2 p.m.

In reality, false hunger is a sign of habituation. Some could say addiction. Your body is used to getting the same amount of food at the same times.

Your body is not even done processing your previous meal that you’re already on to the next. The body gets used to this, and demands food out of habit.

If you break the cycle, you’ll start being more in touch with your true needs.

However, I suggest being careful when trying out this principle. Some people should eat right away if they feel weak.
