The Myth of High Protein Diets

It is a myth that high protein diets are good for us.

The average American diet includes high fat proteins (red meat, milk, cheese, eggs). Americans have been convinced that these types of proteins are essential. However, most of us are unaware that protein studies have been based on early rat experiments. Rats require about 3-1/2 times as much protein as a human; humans eating excessive amounts of proteins can seriously damage their health. When our diet contains more proteins than we need, the excess either adheres to arteries or is broken down in the liver and excerpted through the kidneys which cause thee organs to work harder, excrete more water and lose calcium. Better dietary sources of proteins for humans should include: raw seeds: pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, raw nuts: almonds, walnuts, pecans, macadamias, beans, grains and small amounts of yogurt, fish, cheese or eggs.

Women need to regain control of their health by scrutinizing purchased food products. Daily use of chemicalized and processed foods deteriorate health. We do not catch high blood pressure, breast cancers, high cholesterol or disease; these are built through years of a poor diet and lack of the correct nutrients and minerals.

STOP reading the nutritional facts and START reading the ingredients. If your foods or drinks contain dyes (red, blue, yellow), MSG (monosodium glutamate), hydrogenated oils, aluminum, white flour, high fructose corn syrup or refined sugar, do not purchase.

Our bodies are designed to digest and handle many different foods even if they are not good for us but, a steady diet of chemical laden foods will destroy our health.
