The Art of Getting Sun

Listen to the full podcast HERE.

Reasons People Get Less Sun

  • Air conditioning – to avoid the hot sun
  • Air conditioning disease is the result of less vitamin D – China (March, 2011).
  • Increased use of multi-media indoors – TV, DVD, video games, and internet access
    • Teens increasingly indoors – especially dark skinned children
    • Problems of increased TV watching by toddlers (May, 2010).
    • Analysis of the time people spend outdoors (December, 2010).
  • More indoor jobs – more office workers, fewer farmers
    • Indoor jobs cities around the world: 30% in 1950, 70% in 2050
    • Urban residents had 2X less vitamin D – 2008
  • More people living in cities – where there is less Ultra Violet light (UV)
    • Air pollution reduces UV and thus vitamin D
    • UVB, which produces vitamin D, does not reflect off of buildings very well
  • People want whiter skin, especially women
    • May not burn from the sun if have enough vitamin D
  • Fear of skin cancer
    • Actually you can get enough vitamin D without getting much of a tan, much less get skin cancer
    • Most sunscreens increase the growth of skin cancer
    • Actually you get 1000X more cancer by not having the vitamin D
  • Less cholesterol – skin needs to produce vitamin D
    • Overview of Cholesterol and Vitamin D
    • Vitamin D bioavailability is associated with cholesterol (January 2011).
    • Eating less cholesterol is harmless other than it reduces vitamin D (June 2011).
  • More Obesity
  • Obese people need more vitamin D (2000)
    • Map of BMI increase (February 2011).
    • Obese people spend less time in the sun
    • Livers of those who are Obese do not function as well, and so do not provide as much vitamin D
  • More soft drinks – uses up Calcium And vitamin D
    • Surfers in Hawaii who drank large amount of cola soft drink had low levels of vitamin D
    • Too much fructose reduced both serum and active vitamin D in rats (April 2013).
    • HFCS consumes Magnesium needed by Vitamin D
  • Meat from factory farms – has far less vitamin D than from free-range farms
    • Eggs, chickens, sheep, pigs (500 IU/teaspoon of lard), farmed salmon has 4X less vitamin D than wild salmon
    • Wild game, which has been outdoors all of the time, has much more vitamin D – especially in the organ meats
  • Eating less fatty meat in an attempt to reduce cholesterol.
    • Fatty meat was discovered to have a liver-activated form of vitamin D in 2014
  • More drugs which consume or block vitamin D
    • Antiseizure, Prednisone, AIDS drugs, Orlistat, Questran, Dilantin, Phenobarbital, Rifampin, Steroids, Calcium channel blockers
    • Cholestyramine, Mineral Oil, St Johns wort
  • Use of polyunsaturated fats decreased bio-availablity of vitamin D
  • More windows
    • UVA from windows appears to destroy vitamin D
    • UVB (the one we need) is blocked by windows
    • More wall space devoted to windows in homes, offices, and public buildings
  • Increased salt consumption, which decreases Magnesium and Calcium
  • Fluoridated water decreases Magnesium – less vitamin D
  • Strong magnetic fields reduce vitamin D levels, perhaps from MRI
  • PCBs increase the chance of deficiency by 3%
  • Roundup (glyphosate) and it’s metabolites decrease vitamin D
  • Flame Retardants also retard active vitamin D
    • Flame Retardants were added to US clothing, mattresses, and cushions by 1980
    • Doubt that flame retardants are used in developing countries
  • Have a condition which Consumes vitamin D
    • Chemotherapy – (be careful, adding vitamin D increases the impact of some Chemo)
    • MS prevented AND treated by vitamin D, a mountain of evidence
  • Less liver eaten – which used to have large amounts of vitamin D

Get 40X more vitamin D from grass-fed beef liver

  • Less Magnesium in foods – Magnesium is needed to utilize vitamin D (as well as build bones)
    • Magnesium and vitamin D deficiencies
    • Magnesium deficiency epidemic is similar to the Vitamin D epidemic
    • Reasons: use of artificial fertilizers, refining grains removes almost all of their Magnesium
  • More seniors
    • Seniors get 4X less vitamin D from the sun than youths (less Cholesterol in skin) *
    • Seniors tend to be outdoors less – get sick – vicious cycle
    • Seniors do not activate vitamin D as well (in liver, kidney, skin, etc)
    • More cataract surgery – leads to avoiding bright light
  • Excessive clothing (burka, nun habit, . . .) Worse farther from equator
  • Have a condition which prevents Adsorption in the gut
    • Bariatric Surgery, Colon Cancer, IBD UC and CD, Crohn’s
    • Gluten Intolerance, Celiac Disease, Cystic Fibrosis
    • Fat malabsorption syndromes from 1985
  • Have a condition which prevents conversion to active vitamin D
    • Kidney vicious cycle
    • HIV both prevents conversion and consumes vitamin D
  • Have a condition which requires more vitamin D – or time in the sun
    • Pregnancy- Need more vitamin D – Before , During, and After
    • Dark Skinned people need more sun to absorb vitamin D
    • Surgery and trauma
  • Lactose Intolerance or Vegan
  • Vitamin D in US milk wrong (Vitamin D2)
  • Reduces Calcium intake, needed to build bones, prevent Myopia, prevent cardiovascular disease
  • Health reasons to avoid sun (other than skin cancer) burn easily – redhead, etc – there are alternatives
  • If avoiding sun you need to supplement with vitamin D
  • Work long hours or night shift. Long hours reduced vitamin D by 8%
  • Live far from equator even more of a problem if the region is also cloudy (Washington State, Scotland)
  • 10X more SAD in Seattle than Miami
  • DDT and some other pesticides in our bodies reduce the vitamin D perhaps 3ng
  • Smoking reduces Calcium, which reduces vitamin D

What to Do?

What it boils down to is that the sun is not just good for us, it is vital to our survival and good health. For example, in one study, 38,472 women selected in 1991-1992, aged 30-49 were monitored for 15 years. Looking at the frequency of sunbathing vacations and sunburn, the researchers found that increased sunburn frequency was associated with reduced all-cause mortality!  Sunbathing vacations more than once a year also reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality.[1] Finally in another study involving 16,500 people, researchers looked at weather statistics and found a 60% increased risk of stroke for those with the lowest sun exposure.[2]

Steps You Can Take To Get More Sun 

  1. Get regular sun and learn how to monitor your vitamin D3 levels. 

In general burning is a bad idea as it can lead to skin cancer. There are many other variables to take into consideration when sunbathing. One is skin type.

According to the Vitamin D Council Parameters of Vitamin D3 Sulfate

 

Skin Type Skin color Skin characteristics
I White; very fair; red or blond hair; blue eyes; freckles Always burns, never tans
II White; fair; red or blond hair; blue, hazel, or green eyes Usually burns, tans with difficulty
III Cream white; fair; with any eye or hair color; very common Sometimes mild burn, gradually tans
IV Brown; typical Mediterranean Caucasian skin Rarely burns, tans with ease
V Dark Brown; mid-eastern skin types Very rarely burns, tans very easily
VI Black Never burns, tans very easily

There are other factors as well, which can affect the amount of vitamin D your body makes from exposure to the sun. These are:

  • The amount of skin you expose. The more skin you expose, the more vitamin D you can produce.
  • How old you are. As you get older, your skin has a harder time producing vitamin D.
  • Whether you’re wearing sunscreen. Sunscreen blocks a lot of vitamin D production and it has also been implicated in skin cancer.
  • The altitude you’re at. The sun is more intense on top of a mountain than at the beach. This means you make more vitamin D the higher up you are (at higher altitudes).
  • Whether it is cloudy. Less UVB reaches your skin on a cloudy day and your skin makes less vitamin D.
  • Air pollution. Polluted air soaks up UVB or reflects it back into space. This means that if you live somewhere where there is lots of pollution, your skin makes less vitamin D.
  • Being behind glass. Glass blocks all UVB, so you can’t make vitamin D if you’re in sunlight, but behind glass. In fact, light coming through glass has been shown to be more cancerous.

 

Given all of the variables, it can get complicated. For example:

  • At noon in Miami, an individual with skin type III would probably need about 6 minutes of exposure to the sun to make 1,000 IU of vitamin D in summer and 15 minutes in winter.
  • Someone with skin type V would probably need around 15 minutes in summer and 30 minutes in winter.
  • At noon in Boston during summer, an individual with skin type III would probably need about 1 hour of exposure to the sun to make 1,000 IU of vitamin D.
  • Someone with skin type V would probably need about 2 hours of exposure.
  • During the winter months in Boston, it’s not possible for anyone to make vitamin D from the sun, no matter their skin ty

           Amount of Sunlight for People of Color 

Did You Know? 

We all started out at the equator and had dark skin. The farther away we got from the equator, the lighter our skin became and the less melanin we needed to protect against the potentially burnng rays of UVB. Today, in the U.S. people of color have significantly higher rates of cancer (although the rates dropped for cancer in 2013 among African Americans) heart disease and obesity.

If you are a person of color, the research says you will need up to 5 times more exposure as the melanin in your skin “protects” you from the sun.

“In a startling 2009 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers found that African-Americans have a much higher incidence of heart failure than other races, and it develops at younger ages. Before age 50, African-Americans’ heart failure rate is 20 times higher than that of whites, according to the study. Four risk factors are the strongest predictors of heart failure: high blood pressure (also called hypertension), chronic kidney disease, being overweight, and having low levels of HDL, the “good” cholesterol. Three-fourths of African-Americans who develop heart failure have high blood pressure by age 40.”[3]

 

When it comes to cancer, the picture is not much better.

 

“Despite……. declines….. death rates for all cancers combined remain 33% higher in black men and 16% higher in black women, compared to white men and women. African American men also have higher death rates for most of the major cancer sites (including lung, prostate, colon/rectum, liver, pancreas, and others). Notably, the higher overall cancer death rate in African American women compared to white women occurs despite lower incidence rates for all cancers combined and for breast and lung cancer.

Just recently, the new data have emerged showing that African Americans have the highest rate of obesity.[4]

  • African American women have the highest rates of being overweight or obese compared to other groups in the U.S. About four out of five African American women are overweight or obese.
  • In 2011, African Americans were 1.5 times as likely to be obese as Non- Hispanic Whites.
  • In 2011, African American women were 80% more likely to be obese than Non-Hispanic White women.
  • In 2007-2010, African American girls were 80% more likely to be overweight than Non-Hispanic White girls.

While rates are climbing for the population at large for all of these diseases, the fact that they are climbing faster among people of color is another important data point reinforcing the importance of sunshine as a means of prevention. Research is needed to determine whether there are differences in incidence among people of color in other parts of the world, i.e. does the incidence go down for them in warmer climbs.

  1. Get the app DMinder. It works out all of the details using our location and time of year/day and weather conditions. You program it with supplements, amount of time and time of day you are in the sun and it keeps a running tally of your level of vitamin D3.
  1. Take vacations that involve the sun. Go camping, zip-lining, canoeing, or skiing
  1. Take up a sport that is played outdoors. Tennis, golf, bike riding or roller blading are all good for you as they are low impact and/or high intensity interval (HIIT) types of activities and they can be done outdoors
  1. Get up with the sun – or as early as possible. Your body produces more melatonin if you get early morning sunlight. The more melatonin the better you sleep at night.
  1. Limit the time you spend using electronics. Read don’t watch – fall asleep with a book and not the TV. Write don’t text. When was the last time you actually wrote a letter to someone. It is amazingly gratifying. If you are addicted to surfing the net, set a limit, using an alarm (ok the one on your phone) and stick to it.
  1. Volunteer for Habitat or community activities that take place outdoors. There is something about working with a group of people and being outdoors that is so inspiring.
  1. If you work 3rd shift, consider changing shifts. It is that bad for you. Change jobs if changing shifts is not an option. Really, it is that bad for your health.
  1. If you live in the city, get out of it every chance you get. City dwellers get less sun.

10.  Get your vitamin D3 levels checked regularly.

  1. Invest in a UVB lamp. I have a UVB lamp that appears to provide significantly more vitamin D3 in a much shorter period of time than being in the sun even under optimal conditions.

Standing about 14 inches from the light bulbs, according to the meter, I can obtain 500 I.U. of vitamin D3 in 1 minute. I am currently using the lamp on 9 locations; front and back of lower legs; front, back and sides of thighs; front, back and sides of torso. I do not expose my face or neck. I get about 5,000 I.U. in about 10 minutes.

When I lay in the sun, I expose the front and back of my entire body in a bathing suit for half an hour to an hour.  I am getting about 7,000 to 10,000 according to my DMinder. I also garden and do so with arms and legs exposed but this is usually early morning or dusk when the UVB radiation is at it’s lowest.

Does Supplementation of Vitamin D3 Work? 

It is not clear if supplementation works. One study showed that the problems associated with vitamin D3 deficiency do not improve even if the serum levels of vitamin D3 go up with supplementation. (citation) This make sense, as we will see in chapter _, in that the supplemented D3 never becomes sulfated. It is the sulfur that appears to have all of the health benefits, for the cholesterol and the vitamin D3. I have concluded that I need all three, the sun, the UVB lamp and the supplement along with foods rich in vitamin D3 and cholesterol.

Vitamin D3 Toxicity

Another question is whether or not you can take too much vitamin D3. Toxicity is more likely to occur if the dose goes over 10,000 I.U. according to most authorities. The guidelines are still being revised by many agencies in view of the epidemic of vitamin D3 deficiencies.

Another problem when it comes to supplementing is vitamin D2. It can actually be harmful as it blocks the absorption of vitamin D3. Please do not take it as a supplement. Note that it is vitamin D2 that is put into fortified milk, fortified cheese, fortified cereal…., well everything that has been fortified basically.

There are some people who should not even take vitamin D3 supplements.

Who Should and Should Not Get Vitamin D BTR Show 722

Here are the recommendations from some organizations in the United States on how much vitamin D3 to take:

Recommended daily intakes from various organizations:

Vitamin D Council Endocrine Society Food and Nutrition Board
Infants 1,000 IU/day 400-1,000 IU/day 400 IU/day
Children 1,000 IU/day per 25lbs of body weight 600-1,000 IU/day 600 IU/day
Adults 5,000 IU/day 1,500-2,000 IU/day 600 IU/day, 800 IU/day for seniors

Summary

Not only is the sun good for us as long as we do not burn the skin, it is a life-saver. We will also see how the foods that have been kissed by the sun heal the body, block or prevent disease and sustain us well into old age.

Some more info about our guest:

“Jill Escher, the author of a practical guide to kicking sugar addiction, ‘Farewell, Club Perma-Chub: A Sugar Addict’s Guide to Easy Weight Loss,’ is an outspoken promoter of the concept that the biologically deviant but culturally ‘normal’ pathology of ruthless sugar addiction is a not-so-hidden foundation atop which many of our common chronic diseases fester and flourish. But as a science philanthropist focusing on the long-term effects of hormone disrupting drugs chemicals, she knows that sugar addiction is just one ingredient in the making of today’s metabolic and other epidemics. Jill is also a businesswoman, former lawyer, and president of the Autism Society of the San Francisco Bay Area.”

Eating Disorder Pro Podcast: The Benefits of Grass-fed Meat and Dairy with John Wood [Encore Presentation]

US Wellness Meats - John WoodJoin us on Wednesday January 29  at 7:30 pm EST,  for a special encore presentation of our interiew with John Wood, the founder of US Wellness Meats. We had a great conversation about The Benefits of Grassfed Meat and Dairy. You can tune in HERE.

“John Wood is a life-long resident of Lewis County Missouri.  Following a Farm Operations B.S. degree at Iowa State University in 1975, John returned back to a 5th generation family farm and was involved in day to day management of conventional Northeast Missouri family farm from 1975 to 2000.

John married in 1983 and added two daughters and a son into the rural community. All have prospered on a stubborn work ethic that has preserved the rural way of life for centuries.

In February of 2000, John and three partners created a pasture to consumer online grass-fed meat business on farms in Northeast Missouri and Western Illinois.  Grassland Beef, LLC dba US Wellness Meats was organized officially on September 1, 2000.  Marketing commenced on November 7, 2000, and continues today nationwide and into several foreign countries.  Grass-fed beef, lamb, bison, butter, cheese, free range poultry, pastured ABF pork, organic snacks, wild-caught seafood, raw honey and gourmet rabbit compose the core business model.  US Wellness Meats has been featured by professional athletes, chefs, doctors, trainers, authors and the likes of Fox News in recent years.

During the past 38 years, John has held leadership positions with Lewis County Extension, Lewis County Farm Bureau, Missouri Young Farmers, a three year stint on the Missouri Soil and Water Commission during the mid-1990’s, and is a founding member & chairman of Missouri Wind Resources, LLC.

It is exciting to be in an industry that supports animal agriculture, treats animals with respect, provides entry positions for young farmers with low overhead, is good for the land and plant community, good for the rural community and improves health and wellness for our consumers.”

Renae Norton is a clinical psychologist, specializing in the outpatient treatment of obesity and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, and binge eating disorder (BED) and the Director of The Norton Center for Eating Disorders and Obesity in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Eating Disorder Pro Podcast: Diabulimia with Dr. Ann Goebel-Fabbri

Diabulimia - Dr. Goebel-Fabbri

Join us on WEDNESDAY, January 8 at 7:30 pm EST for a special encore presentation of our interview with Dr. Ann Goebel-Fabbri about Diabulimia!  For more information on Diabulimia be sure to read this article! You can tune in HERE.

Here’s some background information about Dr. Goebel-Fabbri from the Joslin Diabetes Center:

“Dr. Ann Goebel-Fabbri is a clinical psychologist at Joslin Diabetes Center and Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Her role at Joslin integrates teaching, research and treatment focused on disordered eating behaviors in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Her work covers the spectrum of eating problems from food and insulin restriction to binge eating and obesity.

Dr Goebel-Fabbri has lectured at local and national academic conferences and presented her work in peer-reviewed journals. She is involved in NIH-funded multi-center clinical research focused on non-surgical weight loss strategies for improved health outcomes in type 2 diabetes.

Women with type 1 diabetes are more than twice as likely to develop an eating disorder as the general public. The symptoms of eating disorders specific to this population include insulin omission and insulin underdosing (skipping or reducing necessary insulin injections to control weight).

Research indicates that insulin omission and reduction increase the risk of long-term microvascular and macrovascular medical complications of diabetes—such as nerve damage, kidney disease, cardiac disease and eye disease—and may also increase mortality rates.

Dr. Goebel-Fabbri is a clinical psychologist whose research focuses on the relationship between diabetes and eating disorders. In her own studies and in collaboration with others, Dr. Goebel-Fabbri seeks to better understand how eating disorders affect long-term medical complications in women with diabetes and what types of interventions might help improve health outcomes in these high-risk patients.

In collaboration with Katie Weinger, Ed.D., R.N., Dr. Goebel-Fabbri completed a 12-year follow-up of a cohort of 470 female Joslin patients with type 1 diabetes. This study investigates the natural course of insulin omission and underdosing as a means of weight loss over time.

The study also examines how these behaviors affect psychological and functional health, quality of life, diabetes-related distress, diagnoses of eating disorders and long-term complications of diabetes.

In the future, Dr. Goebel-Fabbri hopes to undertake a treatment outcome study to determine whether interventions specifically tailored to treat issues related to insulin omission and other eating disorders in women with type 1 diabetes can improve overall health outcomes in this population.

People with type 2 diabetes also appear to be at higher risk of developing eating disorders, particularly binge eating. It remains unclear whether the binge eating leads to weight gain and type 2 diabetes, or if events occur in another order. Dr. Goebel-Fabbri is the chief psychologist for WhyWAIT, a Joslin program created expressly to address the unique weight-management needs of people with type 2 diabetes. A multidisciplinary clinical research team is studying the effectiveness of this program for delivery in routine diabetes care.

Dr. Goebel-Fabbri serves as the Behavioral Consultant to the Joslin team of the Look AHEAD (Action for Health in Diabetes) Study, a multicenterclinical trial, funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), that examines the impact of weight loss and physical activity on cardiac outcomes in adults with type 2 diabetes.

She is also the supervising Behavioral Psychologist to the Joslin team of the Treatment Options for Type 2 Diabetes in Adolescents and Youth (TODAY) Study, a multicenter research trial funded by NIDDK. This project aims to improve medical and behavioral treatments for children and adolescents with type 2 diabetes.”

Eating Disorder Pro Podcast: Clean Eating & Eating Disorder Recovery with Amber Romaniuk

Amber Romaniuk Eating Disorder Recovery

Join us on WEDNESDAY January 1 at 7:30 pm EST as we welcome Amber Romaniuk to the show. We’ll be having an inspiring discussion about Amber’s struggles with emotional eating and food addiction and her recovery journey. Amber is the founder of Nourish This Life and is a R.H.N. Holistic Nutritionist graduate from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Additionally, she is the author of a brand new cookbook “Amber Approved Gluten, Dairy, and Sugar-free Recipes“.

This episode is especially important if you suffer from obesity or an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, or binge eating disorder. You can tune in HERE.

Some background info about our guest:

“Amber Romaniuk, founder of Nourish This Life, Calgary, Alberta, is an R.H.N. Holistic Nutritionist graduate from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. She offers a unique edge of understanding for supporting individualized plans and nutritional coaching to clients suffering from a spectrum of imbalances including: digestive, hormonal and adrenal imbalances, inflammation, stress, enzyme deficiency, food allergy/sensitivity and blood sugar imbalances.

She also has a deep personal awareness of emotional, compulsive, and binge eating as well as an incredible depth of knowledge regarding the connection between the physical and psychological imbalances these have on the body, mind and soul.

Amber is also involved in public speaking to educate those interested on how to take the steps involved to shift to a healthier lifestyle.

Amber is also a Advisory Council & founding member of the Calgary Holistic Chamber of Commerce, part of BNI Integrity, and a part of the Evolutionary Business Institute. She is writing her first cookbook titled “Amber Approved: Gluten, Sugar & Dairy-Free Recipes to Nourish This Life” was released on December 10th with all dairy, sugar and gluten-free recipes.

With a huge passion for cooking and creating new allergen-free recipes, both for her website and clients, she can help support your nutritional needs. There is a way to replace or transform any refined food or recipe into a cleaner, healthier, whole-foods creation that will satisfy and nourish the taste buds, appetite and soul, and Amber can teach you how.

Striving to provide you with a supportive, professional, and positive environment, when you Nourish This Life the seed of a trusting relationship can be planted to grow and flourish. Along with plenty of suggestions for creative meal plans and nourishing food, Amber knows the best way to support your shift to a healthier whole-foods lifestyle and set you up for success is by education, encouragement, and adding variety, rather than deprivation or strict diets.

For Amber, it’s about thoroughly understanding why you have been choosing certain habits and living the lifestyle you have been living. It’s her goal to support you by working toward shifting these habits, over time, to a state of balance that will change your life for the better. She is extremely excited to be part of such a talented team of practitioners and to start her practice at the Mount Royal Health Center. 

Amber’s Personal Story

Amber brings much life experience to her work. She knows first-hand how poor-quality food choices and using food to cope with emotions can create many different imbalances in the body and mind. Over a span of six years, Amber began taking responsibility for her health and became aware of how foods impacted her on a mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual level. She overcame a lack of self-love and emotional eating while learning how to listen to her body as well as love and nourish it the way it deserved in order to shift to a more balanced state.

Amber has developed a strong interest in learning about the connection between nutrient dense foods and the positive impact they have on supporting the body as a whole.

Every person is unique and always changing and, therefore, will require different nutritional and lifestyle needs to support balance and optimal health on an ongoing basis.

You may think: Where do I start? I don’t know what to do first. I don’t know what a chia seed is, or I love sugar too much to ever think of eliminating it from my diet.

It may seem too difficult or intimidating.

Amber started out in that space too, and she knows that through time, learning, and creating a space to be open to trying new foods, it’s totally possible. Anything is.”

Renae Norton is a clinical psychologist, specializing in the outpatient treatment of obesity and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, and binge eating disorder (BED) and the Director of The Norton Center for Eating Disorders and Obesity in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Eating Disorder Pro Podcast: The Dark Side of Fat Loss with Sean Croxton [Encore Presentation]

Sean Croxton Dark side of fat loss

Join us on FRIDAY December 6 at 12:00 pm EST for a special encore presentation with our interview with Sean Croxton, founder of Underground Wellness and author of The Dark Side of Fat Loss. We had a great discussion about  the complete code of conduct for healthy living and nutrition so that you can be the healthiest, fittest version of yourself, free of excess fat, depression, anxiety, sweet cravings, sleep issues, low libido and the signs and symptoms of common degenerative diseases!

This episode is especially important if you suffer from a obesity or an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, or binge eating disorder. You can tune in HERE.

Check out my review of the Dark Side of Fat Loss HERE.

A bit of background info about Sean Croxton:

“The word most often used to describe Sean is PASSIONate! This passion comes from a lifelong love of fitness and health, and a dream to revolutionize the way THE WORLD thinks about health. Recognizing the failures of health care, Sean promotes the concept of self care. In order to regain and/or maintain superb health, we must become more responsible for ourselves.

After graduating from San Diego State University in 2001 with a Bachelor’s in Kinesiology (emph: fitness, nutrition, and health), Sean began his journey as a certified personal trainer. Despite his extensive education in health, he was met with much failure as clients got heavier and sicker. Client programs consisted of endless cardio and the horrific Food Guide Pyramid. Rather than accept defeat, Sean took his failures as an opportunity for growth. He has since spent thousands of hours educating himself on the many truths that eluded him throughout his formal education, often joking that he got his Master’s from Amazon.com.”

Eating Disorder Pro Podcast: The Benefits of Grassfed Butter with Dale Stoltzfus

butter

Join us on WEDNESDAY November 27 at 7:30 pm EST as we welcome Dale Stoltzfus of ‘Oasis Bird in Hand‘ to the show. We’ll be discussing the benefits of eating grassfed butter. This episode is especially important if you are or your loved one suffers from obesity or and eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, or binge eating disorder. You can tune in HERE.

Some information about our guest and ‘Oasis Bird in Hand’:

Dale K. Stoltzfus became a Belgian Draft Horse Breeder in 1988 when he bought a pair of two year old Belgian work horse mares. The decision to buy those two horses has led him on a path he never could have imagined. He had made a career change in ‘88 that put him in the Real Estate industry as a Realtor for 20 some years.

Having been raised on a farm and having a keen interest in animals and soils always kept his interest in, and affinity for, all things farm related, alive. Four years ago he heard about a new Farmer’s Cooperative called ‘Oasis at Bird In Hand’ that was in the planning stages. He checked into it and found out it was a marketing effort for local, organic, nutrient dense, fresh food. He had been paying attention to the local organic food movement and he was excited about it, and still is.

The steering committee for the new Coop invited him to join them and in the spring of 2012 he became the produce manager and coordinator of operations. In that position it is his job to learn from Oasis produce farmers what they have available at any given time throughout the growing season and match it to the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) boxes they fill for local customers in eastern PA and in Washington DC, as well as wholesale customers. At the moment, they are not requiring our produce growers to be organic certified. However, they make sure they are keenly aware of organic practices and that they grow at or beyond recognized organic standards.

Oasis at Bird In Hand carries the whole spectrum of real food as follows: all types of in season produce, year round, GMO and Soy free pastured eggs, grass fed beef and pork processed under USDA inspection, raw milk, (PA only) vat pasteurized milk and chocolate milk, organically flavored plain and drinkable yogurts, fresh cream and our own fresh salted and unsalted butter, as well as numerous kinds of artisanal local cheeses made with their own milk. All of the fluid milk and milk used for cheese comes from local, grass fed only, heritage breeds of cows. The milk Oasis uses comes from organically certified dairy farms and the plant at Oasis is organic certified as well. The purpose of Oasis is to find solid, viable markets for locally grown, nutrient dense, real food in order to provide local farmers with sustainable livelihoods and local communities and cities with the most healthy, nutritious, organically good tasting, fresh foods; coming to them as directly and in as timely a fashion as possible. They believe from our own experience and from the stories we hear that eating the kind of food we are growing has within itself nutrition that will cure many ills.

The Eating Disorder Pro Podcast – The Benefits of Grass-fed Meat and Dairy

US Wellness Meats - John WoodJoin us on Tuesday June 25  at 7:00 pm EST,  as we talk with John Wood, the founder of US Wellness Meats. We’re excited to talk with him about The Benefits of Grassfed Meat and Dairy. We’ll be taking your questions LIVE at 646-378-0494. You can tune in HERE.

“John Wood is a life-long resident of Lewis County Missouri.  Following a Farm Operations B.S. degree at Iowa State University in 1975, John returned back to a 5th generation family farm and was involved in day to day management of conventional Northeast Missouri family farm from 1975 to 2000.

John married in 1983 and added two daughters and a son into the rural community. All have prospered on a stubborn work ethic that has preserved the rural way of life for centuries.

In February of 2000, John and three partners created a pasture to consumer online grass-fed meat business on farms in Northeast Missouri and Western Illinois.  Grassland Beef, LLC dba US Wellness Meats was organized officially on September 1, 2000.  Marketing commenced on November 7, 2000, and continues today nationwide and into several foreign countries.  Grass-fed beef, lamb, bison, butter, cheese, free range poultry, pastured ABF pork, organic snacks, wild-caught seafood, raw honey and gourmet rabbit compose the core business model.  US Wellness Meats has been featured by professional athletes, chefs, doctors, trainers, authors and the likes of Fox News in recent years.

During the past 38 years, John has held leadership positions with Lewis County Extension, Lewis County Farm Bureau, Missouri Young Farmers, a three year stint on the Missouri Soil and Water Commission during the mid-1990’s, and is a founding member & chairman of Missouri Wind Resources, LLC.

It is exciting to be in an industry that supports animal agriculture, treats animals with respect, provides entry positions for young farmers with low overhead, is good for the land and plant community, good for the rural community and improves health and wellness for our consumers.”

He is the author of two books, “The Kalish Method: Healing the Body Mapping the Mind” and “Your Guide to Healthy Hormones”.

Dr. Kalish was recently invited to participate in the One Mind For Research group by the Honorable Patrick Kennedy. The first One Mind For Research conference in Boston in 2011 was a gathering of the top 200 neuroscientists in the United States, coming together to form a unified front to promote research on brain disorders.

For ten years Dr. Kalish directed The Natural Path Clinic in Del Mar, California, where he coordinated a team of medical doctors, nutritionists, chiropractors and acupuncturists.  Dr. Kalish now maintains an active international phone consultation practice with patients throughout the world.

In his private practice, Dr. Kalish has developed nutritional programs for a varied group of patients, over 8,000 in all, ranging from Olympic athletes to new moms. His programs are highly effective across a broad population with a variety of health complaints.

Dr. Kalish received his B.A. in Physiological Psychology from Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio. He studied at the University of London and conducted research with biochemist Dr. Robin Monroe at Cambridge University. He also worked with renowned psychiatrist Dr. R.D. Lang utilizing drug-free treatments for schizophrenics.

Dr. Kalish spent two years in monastic training in Asia. He lived at a Zen monastery in Japan, where he studied organic farming, Zen meditation and the art of Zen archery under Harada Roshi. He also lived in a forest monastery in Thailand studying meditation and the transcription of Buddhist texts for Vipassana master Achan Buddadasa. He is a certified Alexander Technique teacher and trained for two years with Marion Rosen, founder of Rosen Method Bodywork.

Smith, is the author of the world’s bestselling and #1 rated book on the health dangers genetically modified organisms (GMOs). His meticulous research documents how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials to put the health of society at risk, and the environment in peril.

His first book Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies about the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating masterfully combines the art of storytelling and investigative reporting. His second book, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods, is the authoritative work on GMO health dangers. It includes 65 health dangers, linking GMOs in our food to toxic and allergic reactions, infertility, and damage to virtually every internal organ studied in lab animals. The book expertly summarizes why the safety assessments conducted by the FDA and regulators worldwide teeter on a foundation of outdated science and false assumptions, and why GM foods must urgently become our nation’s top food safety priority. Former UK environment minister says the revelations in Genetic Roulette may “change the global course of events this century.”

Mr. Smith has counseled leaders from every continent, campaigned to end the use of genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rbGH or rbST), and influenced the first state laws in the United States regulating GMOs. An admired keynote speaker around the globe, Mr. Smith has been described as “a life-changer”. Mr. Smith has lectured in 30 countries and has been quoted by world leaders and hundreds of media outlets including, The New York Times, Washington Post, BBC World Service, Nature, The Independent, Daily Telegraph, New Scientist, The Times (London), Associated Press, Reuters News Service, LA Times, Time Magazine and Genetic Engineering News. Mr. Smith is also a popular guest on influential radio shows and television programs, such as the BBC, NPR, Fox News, Democracy Now and the Dr. Oz Show.

Former US National Institutes of Health scientist Candace Pert describes Jeffrey as “the leading world expert in the understanding and communication of the health issues surrounding genetically modified foods.”

Mr. Smith has united leaders to support, The Campaign for Healthier Eating in America, a revolutionary industry and consumer movement to remove GMOs from the US food supply. He is the executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, producer of the films Hidden Dangers in Kids’ Meals and Your Milk on Drugs—Just Say No!, writes an internationally syndicated column, Spilling the Beans, has a regular blog on the popular Huffington Post, and is followed on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

The Institute for Responsible Technology’s Campaign for Healthier Eating in America mobilizes citizens, organizations, businesses, and the media, to achieve the tipping point of consumer rejection of genetically modified foods.

The Institute produces a wide range of consumer education and advocacy tools for its visitors and newsletter readers, including the nation’s most popular non-GMO in-store brand publication, the Non-GMO Shopping Guide.

The Institute informs policy makers and the public around the world about the risks and impacts of GMOs on health, environment, agriculture, the global economy, and the problems associated with current research, regulation, corporate practices, and reporting.

Mr. Smith lives with his wife in Iowa, surrounded by genetically modified soybeans and corn.”

The Eating Disorder Pro Podcast – Diabulimia – Dr. Ann Goebel-Fabbri


Diabulimia - Dr. Goebel-Fabbri

Join us tomorrow March 5 at 7 pm as we talk to Dr. Ann Goebel-Fabbri about Diabulimia! We’ll be taking your questions LIVE at 646-378-0494 or by email (drnorton@eatingdisorderpro.com). For more information on Diabulimia be sure to read this article we posted last week! Here’s some background information about Dr. Goebel-Fabbri from the Joslin Diabetes Center:

Dr. Ann Goebel-Fabbri is a clinical psychologist at Joslin Diabetes Center and Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Her role at Joslin integrates teaching, research and treatment focused on disordered eating behaviors in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Her work covers the spectrum of eating problems from food and insulin restriction to binge eating and obesity.

Dr Goebel-Fabbri has lectured at local and national academic conferences and presented her work in peer-reviewed journals. She is involved in NIH-funded multi-center clinical research focused on non-surgical weight loss strategies for improved health outcomes in type 2 diabetes.

Women with type 1 diabetes are more than twice as likely to develop an eating disorder as the general public. The symptoms of eating disorders specific to this population include insulin omission and insulin underdosing (skipping or reducing necessary insulin injections to control weight).

Research indicates that insulin omission and reduction increase the risk of long-term microvascular and macrovascular medical complications of diabetes—such as nerve damage, kidney disease, cardiac disease and eye disease—and may also increase mortality rates.

Dr. Goebel-Fabbri is a clinical psychologist whose research focuses on the relationship between diabetes and eating disorders. In her own studies and in collaboration with others, Dr. Goebel-Fabbri seeks to better understand how eating disorders affect long-term medical complications in women with diabetes and what types of interventions might help improve health outcomes in these high-risk patients.

In collaboration with Katie Weinger, Ed.D., R.N., Dr. Goebel-Fabbri completed a 12-year follow-up of a cohort of 470 female Joslin patients with type 1 diabetes. This study investigates the natural course of insulin omission and underdosing as a means of weight loss over time.

The study also examines how these behaviors affect psychological and functional health, quality of life, diabetes-related distress, diagnoses of eating disorders and long-term complications of diabetes.

In the future, Dr. Goebel-Fabbri hopes to undertake a treatment outcome study to determine whether interventions specifically tailored to treat issues related to insulin omission and other eating disorders in women with type 1 diabetes can improve overall health outcomes in this population.

People with type 2 diabetes also appear to be at higher risk of developing eating disorders, particularly binge eating. It remains unclear whether the binge eating leads to weight gain and type 2 diabetes, or if events occur in another order. Dr. Goebel-Fabbri is the chief psychologist for WhyWAIT, a Joslin program created expressly to address the unique weight-management needs of people with type 2 diabetes. A multidisciplinary clinical research team is studying the effectiveness of this program for delivery in routine diabetes care.

Dr. Goebel-Fabbri serves as the Behavioral Consultant to the Joslin team of the Look AHEAD (Action for Health in Diabetes) Study, a multicenterclinical trial, funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), that examines the impact of weight loss and physical activity on cardiac outcomes in adults with type 2 diabetes.

She is also the supervising Behavioral Psychologist to the Joslin team of the Treatment Options for Type 2 Diabetes in Adolescents and Youth (TODAY) Study, a multicenter research trial funded by NIDDK. This project aims to improve medical and behavioral treatments for children and adolescents with type 2 diabetes.

Show Summary

The Weight Management System

In order to understand the role that food additives, genetically engineered organisms (GE’s), sweeteners, and neurotoxins play in the current epidemic of obesity and ED’s we must first understand the systems involved in appetite/hunger, fat storage, weight loss/gain and food addictions. There are three primary hormones involved in appetite/hunger regulation: Leptin, Ghrelin, Peptide YY.

Leptin

Leptin, which is a peptide hormone, was discovered by scientists in 1994. It is found in gastric tissue and placenta but is most abundant in white adipose tissue (WAT) otherwise known as body fat. WAT is composed mainly of adipocytes (fat cells) that store energy in the form of triglycerides during times of nutritional abundance. During times of nutritional deprivation, fat cells release the triglycerides (fat) into the blood stream to provide energy for the body. If there is too much fat in the form of triglycerides, it is stored in different places, such as the hips or belly, in case it is needed later. It also accumulates in the arteries, causing coronary artery disease.

In general, the amount of WAT, or body fat, is determined by the balance between energy intake and energy output. While it is partly influenced by genetic factors, it is driven primarily by environmental factors, such as the amount and/or type of food eaten.

It is damaged by food additives that are neurotoxic or addictive and by environmental carcinogens and obesegens.
Under normal conditions, this system is carefully regulated so that WAT mass remains constant and close to a well defined ‘set point’ for each individual. The set point, which is designed to keep the body at a healthy weight, is part of a feedback loop that maintain homeostasis.

Disruptions of this steady state that are caused by damage to the systems involved, can lead to chronic decreases or increases in the quantity of WAT mass. Decreased amounts of WAT are associated with periods of dieting, malnutrition, as in the case of ED’s, Anorexia. During these periods, the healthy body sends a message to the brain to increase food intake and decrease energy output. Increased amounts of WAT are present with obesity. Under these conditions, leptin sends a message to the brain to inhibit food intake and increase energy expenditure. In this sense, leptin acts as a long-term regulator of optimal body weight. It has been dubbed the “starvation hormone” because it’s primary function is to keep us from eating too little or exerting too much, and thus avoid starving to death.

Leptin levels are driven by the amount of adipose tissue one has under normal conditions. While the system works well to keep weight at optimal levels, it becomes less and less effective the more (or in the case of Anorexia, the less) adipose tissue there is. In the case of excess weight, the farther one is from the optimum, or set point, the stronger the signal to decrease food intake and increase energy output.

However, there appears to be a threshold for leptin levels, such that when they get too high or remain too high for too long, the brain no longer registers or recognizes them. This is called Leptin resistance, and it’s very much like insulin resistance. When this happens, the brain no longer senses changes in leptin levels. Instead, it perceives, that the body is in a state of starvation.

As a result, the individual experiences the need to increase food intake and decrease energy expenditure, regardless of how much excess fat they actually have on board. This causes more weight gain, and more adipose tissue, which results in more Leptin resistance, which in turn results in more weight gain. This is an example of a classic vicious cycle.

In the case of Anorexia, leptin levels are too low, due to the lack of WAT or fat cells, so that the individual is leptin deficient. The message from the brain is the same as it was for the obese patient that was leptin resistant, eat more, exert less, but for a different reason. In this case, the individual actually is starving to death. Unfortunately, in the case of the Anorexic individual, whose fear of gaining weight is overwhelming, the response to feeling hungry is to eat even less, causing more weight loss, which triggers more hunger which leads to more fear, and we have another vicious cycle.

Fasting, food intake, exercising, awakening, and psychosocial stressors cause the body to release cortisol. Cortisol is released in a highly irregular manner with peak secretion in the early morning, which then tapers out in the late afternoon and evening. Energy regulation and mobilization are two critical functions of cortisol. Cortisol regulates energy by selecting the right type and amount of substrate (carbohydrate, fat or protein) that is needed by the body to meet the physiological demands that is placed upon it. Cortisol mobilizes energy by tapping into the body’s fat stores (in the form of triglycerides) and moving it from one location to another, or delivering it to hungry tissues such as working muscle. Under stressful conditions, cortisol can provide the body with protein for energy production through gluconeogenesis, the process of converting amino acids into useable carbohydrate (glucose) in the liver.

Additionally, it can move fat from storage depots and relocate it to fat cell deposits deep in the abdomen. Cortisol also aids adipocytes (baby fat cells) to grow up into mature fat cells. Finally, cortisol may act as an anti-inflammatory agent, suppressing the immune system during times of physical and psychological stress. The implications are that when you are stressed, you store more belly fat and are more susceptible to disease because your immune system is on vacation.

Leptin levels can also be high for individuals with anorexia.  However, in this case it is because triglyceride levels are too high due to liver damage and/or anorexia-induced hormone disruptions.

Ghrelin

Ghrelin, discovered in 1999 by scientists, is known as “the hunger hormone”. Produced in the stomach and pancreas, Ghrelin stimulates the appetite for the purpose of increasing the intake of food and promoting the storage of fat. When Ghrelin levels are high, we feel hungry. After we eat, Ghrelin levels fall and we feel satisfied.

Leptin and Ghrelin have a “teeter-totter” relationship. When leptin levels rise, ghrelin levels fall. Likewise, when ghrelin levels rise, leptin levels fall.

Whereas leptin acts as a long-term regulator of body weight, Ghrelin, on the other hand, is a fast-acting hormone that operates as a meal-initiation signal for short-term regulation of energy balance. There are distinct abnormalities in the production of Ghrelin among obese and eating disordered individuals. Part of the problem may be high levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, which is often seen with very low leptin levels. of Chronic stimulation is seen in clinical scenarios with chronic high cortisol levels and very low leptin levels. The more improper signaling that occurs, the more the incretin hormones agouti and ghrelin become disconnected from their master controller, leptin. The gasoline for this reaction is a chronic elevated cortisol. The longer it occurs, the more these abnormal signals are wired for in the person’s brain. This is what makes their treatment so difficult.

Those with anorexia tend to have high levels of ghrelin, which causes them to feel hungry. The sense of hunger is an extremely frightening feeling for most individuals suffering from Anorexia. So much so that they believe that they will never be able to relate normally to food, fearing that once they start eating they will never be able to stop. However, Grehlin levels normalize with weight restoration in individuals that refeed on a clean diet. For those that refeed using traditional refeeding protocols, Grehlin levels are likely to worsen as are Leptin levels. The result is increases hunger, increased fear and more restricting.

Among those with bulimia, Ghrelin does not respond as strongly when food is eaten, which could contribute to binge eating as the individual suffering from Bulimia does not “get full” even if they have overeaten. In the past, the assumption has been that there may be a predisposition in the Bulimic individual that “causes” this reactio and drives this disorder. However, it is possible that the toxins found in most of the foods in the U.S. may be changing brain chemistry in such a way that drives Bulimia.

Obese individuals tend to have low levels of Ghrelin, probably because they are Leptin Resistant, since Leptin and Ghrelin are inversely related. Research also shows that Ghrelin levels are higher after an individual loses weight, causing an increase in appetite, which may make it even more difficult to maintain weight loss for obese individuals.

Peptide YY (PYY)

PYY is a hormone that suppresses appetite. It was discovered to play a role in digestion in 1985. PYY regulates food intake, and is believed to improve leptin sensitivity. The amount of PYY released by our bodies is influenced by the number of calories we ingest; the more calories we ingest, the more PYY is released.

PYY levels are highest in individuals battling anorexia, followed by those individuals that are lean,which explains why both groups have less hunger and also may have more difficulty eating. PYY levels are lowest among obese and morbidly obese individuals. Individuals with bulimia also experience low levels of PYY, which helps to explain why all three groups feel more hunger. Research shows that the obese individual can decrease their PYY levels by 30% by reducing their body weight by 5.4%. PYY levels are not believed to be effected by weight restoration during recovery from anorexia. It is also important to note that high levels of PYY in anorexic individuals is associated with decreased bone mineral density (BMD).

Our mood also effects our PYY levels. Recent studies show that PYY levels are higher in those suffering from major depression. This explains why many people with major depression have a decreased appetite and experience weight loss.

PYY levels can be regulated through both diet and exercise. Diets high in quality protein tend to raise PYY levels highest, followed by diets high in healthy fats. High carbohydrate diets tend to raise PYY levels the least. Aerobic exercise has also been proven to raise PYY levels, whereas strength-training has no effect on PYY levels (although strength-training does lower ghrelin levels).

In conclusion, PYY regulates our appetite. The higher our PYY levels are, the more satiated we will feel. You can ensure your PYY levels are highest by eating a high protein diet and including aerobic exercise in our workout routine.

1. Eat a balanced diet. Be sure to eat foods that are high in protein, and remember to consume organic fruits vegetables. Even though you are resistant to leptin, you should still consume the proper nutrients.

2. Eat six time a day, on a schedule. If you have leptin resistance, you do not realize when you have eaten enough. To overcome this problem, create a set schedule of when to eat. It is best to have three meals each day. You should eat in the morning, the afternoon and the evening.

3. Create a food diary. In order to organize your schedule, create a food diary of the three meals and three snacks each day and the foods you will have during those meals. This method will help you to make sure that you are consuming a variety of foods. Also, by organizing your meals, you can make sure that you are not consuming an excess of food at a given meal.

4. Do not eat late at night. After you have your evening meal, do not eat anything else. If you eat before bedtime, you will feel uncomfortable, and any excess fat will have a less likely chance of being burned.

5. Exercise regularly. Exercise helps you to improve your metabolism, as well as increase your energy. To keep track of your exercise routine, write down the time of day that you will exercise on your schedule.

6. Understand the role of protein tyrosine phosphates 1B, or PTP 1B, in leptin resistance. When PTP 1B is expressed to a high extent, it blocks the signaling of leptin. A possible way to overcome leptin resistance is to inhibit the PTP 1B. Talk to your doctor about the progress of this research.

7. Learn what is happening in your body. If you are leptin resistant, your own body is essentially sabotaging your efforts at weight control. In the first place, your brain is not receiving signals to cease eating when fat stores accumulate, and you’ll find yourself hungry despite knowing rationally that you should be full. To balance your body’s chemistry, you’ll need to regulate yourself mentally since your body can’t do it for you. This will take consistent determination and will power.


8. Exercise even when your body tells you to quit. When the body becomes leptin resistant, it becomes accustomed to high levels of the chemical in the blood. A little weight loss can trigger a decrease in leptin, making your appetite larger and affecting your metabolism negatively. Even though the body has plenty of fat stores to burn, the muscles cease to do so in response to decreasing leptin. You may not see results quickly because of this, and you may find yourself particularly exhausted by exercise. Do it anyway, because you can’t correct leptin resistance without reaching a healthy weight.

9. Take irvingia gabonensis supplements. Irvingia gabonensis is a plant species whose fruit has been shown in medical studies to correct leptin resistance. In fact, one study showed that individuals taking 150 mg of the supplement twice a day showed marked improvements in body composition after just 10 weeks. This natural supplement is not thought to have any side effects, although longitudinal studies are ongoing.

10. Work with a trainer or accountability partner. The hardest part of overcoming leptin resistance is that you go through the rigors of exercise and the self-discipline of a healthy diet without any encouragement from your body. You’ll probably feel tired and hungry on a frustratingly frequent basis. Until you have reached and maintained a healthy weight, though, your body will never regain the ability to function properly with regard to body composition. Having a consistent ally in your pursuit will help you stay strong in the lowest points when your brain is receiving signals to eat more and exercise less in response to decreasing leptin in the blood. The fight will be hard, but overcoming these signals will help you live a longer, more fulfilling life.

Show Summary

Saturated fat is fat that consists of triglycerides containing only saturated fatty acids. (A triglyceride is a combination of a glycerol and 3 fatty acids) Saturated fatty acids are chains of carbon atoms that are fully “saturated” with hydrogen. They have no double bonds. Unsaturated fat consists of fatty acids that do have double bonds.

So, Fatty acids that have double bonds are known as unsaturated. Fatty acids without double bonds are known as saturated. For many years we were told that saturated fats were dangerous and that fats like canola oil were good for us….wrong!

Fatty Acids also differ in length.

Fatty acid chains differ by length as well as in saturation.  This is important because most of us have been told that saturated fat is bad and that unsaturated fat is good.  In fact, the length of the fat may be even more important.

Length is categorized as short to very long

  • Short Chain fatty acids (SCFA) are (always saturated) fatty acids tails of fewer than six carbons. Found mostly in butter fat from cows or goats. (microbes good for immune systems)
  • (MCFA) are fatty acids tails of 6–12 carbons, which can form medium-chain triglycerides. Found in coconut fat
     
  • Long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) (Saturated, monounsaturated or polyunsaturated) are fatty acids with tails 13 to 21carbons.  Found in beef, olive oil, black current oil
  • Very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA) (Highly unsaturated) are fatty acids with tails longer than 22 carbons. Found in Fish oil (EPA, DHA) very important in the functioning of the nervous system.

Short and Medium chain fatty acids do not store as fat in human beings, whereas, long and very long chain fatty acids do.

Unlike other fatty acids, MCFA are absorbed directly from the intestines into the portal vein and sent straight to the liver where they are, for the most part, burned as fuel much like a carbohydrate. In this respect they act more like carbohydrates than like fats.2

Other fats require pancreatic enzymes to break them into smaller units. They are then absorbed into the intestinal wall and packaged into bundles of fat and protein called lipoproteins. These lipoproteins are carried by the lymphatic system, bypassing the liver, and then dumped into the bloodstream, where they are circulated throughout the body. As they circulate in the blood, their fatty components are distributed to all the tissues of the body. The lipoproteins get smaller and smaller, until there is little left of them. At this time they are picked up by the liver, broken apart, and used to produce energy or, if needed, repackaged into other lipoproteins and sent back into the bloodstream to be distributed throughout the body. Cholesterol, saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, and polyunsaturated fat are all packaged together into lipoproteins and carried throughout the body in this way.

In contrast, medium and short-chain fatty acids are not packaged into lipoproteins but go straight to the liver where they are converted into energy. Ordinarily they are not stored to any significant degree as body fat.

Short and Medium-chain fatty acids produce energy. Other dietary fats produce body fat.

Various fats contain different proportions of saturated and unsaturated fat. Examples of foods containing a high proportion of saturated fat include animal fats such as cream, cheese, butter, and ghee; suet, tallow, lard, and fatty meats; as well as certain vegetable products such as coconut oil, cottonseed oil, palm kernel oil, chocolate, and many prepared foods. Although cottonseed oil is high in saturated fat, it should be avoided due to the fact that it is genetically modified.

In particular, heart and skeletal muscle prefer fatty acids. The brain cannot use fatty acids as a source of fuel; it relies on glucose or ketone bodies.

Trans fats

Trans fats (or trans fatty acids) are created in an industrial process that adds hydrogen to liquid vegetable oils to make them more solid.  Another name for trans fats is “partially hydrogenated oils.”  Look for them on the ingredient list on food packages.

Trans fats raise your bad (LDL) cholesterol levels and lower your good (HDL) cholesterol levels.  Eating trans fats increases your risk of developing heart disease and stroke.  It’s also associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Trans fats can be found in many foods – but especially in fried foods like French fries and doughnuts, and baked goods including pastries, pie crusts, biscuits, pizza dough, cookies, crackers, and stick margarines and shortenings.  You can determine the amount of trans fats in a particular packaged food by looking at the Nutrition Facts panel.  You can also spot trans fats by reading ingredient lists and looking for the ingredients referred to as “partially hydrogenated oils.”

Small amounts of trans fats occur naturally in some meat and dairy products, including beef, lamb and butterfat.  It isn’t clear; though, whether these naturally occurring trans fats have the same bad effects on cholesterol levels as trans fats that have been industrially manufactured.

Companies like using trans fats in their foods because they’re easy to use, inexpensive to produce and last a long time.  Trans fats give foods a desirable taste and texture.  Many restaurants and fast-food outlets use trans fats to deep-fry foods because oils with trans fats can be used many times in commercial fryers.

What exactly does Low Fat Mean?

Fat Free –  Less than 0.5g of fat per serving

XX% Fat Free – Must also meet the low fat claim (below)

Low Fat – 3g or less per serving; or 3g per 100g for a meal or main dish, and 30% of total calories or less

Reduced Fat  – 25% less fat than food it is being compared to

Low Saturated Fat – 1g or less and 15% or less of calories from saturated fat

Light/Lite – 50% less fat or one-third fewer calories than the regular product

Lean – Less than 10g of fat, 4.5g of saturated fat and 95mg of cholesterol per 100g of meat, poultry or seafood

Extra Lean – Less than 5g of fat, 2g of saturated fat and 95mg of cholesterol per serving and per 100g of meat, poultry or seafood.

Low Cholesterol – 20mg or less per serving and 2g or less saturated fat per serving

Cholesterol Free – Less than 2mg per serving and 2g or less saturated fat per serving

Less Cholesterol – 25% or less than the food it is being compared to, and 2g or less saturated fat per serving

Low Calorie – 40 calories or less per serving

Show Notes: Genetically Modified Foods, Obesity and Eating Disorders

For those of you that tuned into the podcast last night, you all know that we had to cut the show short last night due to an unexpected bout of food poisoning. I’m on the rebound today, starting to feel much better!

There was a lot of important information that I had planned on covering on the show. I’m sure it was information that you wanted to hear! This post will cover the information that I did not get to go over in the show last night. I will be doing another podcast about genetically modified foods on Tuesday November 6 at 7:30 pm ET. I will discuss all the information below and take your questions live on the air!

Are Genetically Modified Foods Really Safe?

Why Do We Have Genetically Modified Foods in the United States?

How Can I Protect Myself and My Family from Genetically Modified Foods?

What is Proposition 37?

What Additional Resources are Available if I Want to Become a More Informed Consumer?

Are Genetically Modified Foods Really Safe?

Currently in the US, it is estimated that 70% of processed foods on our grocery store shelves contain genetically modified ingredients. The FDA reports that there are no differences between GMO and non-GMO foods; their policy states that “the agency is not aware of any information showing that foods derived by these new methods differ from other foods in any meaningful or uniform way”. Later, FDA documents were made public during a law suit that showed that statement was untrue. The FDAs own scientists repeatedly requested that the FDA complete long-term studies, due to concerns of increased allergens, toxins, new diseases and nutritional problems.  Michael Taylor, the FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods, repeatedly overruled the scientist’s recommendations. It should be noted that prior to working for the FDA, Taylor was a Monsanto attorney and later a Monsanto vice-president. Currently, if a biotech food company “believes” that their genetically modified “creations” are safe, they can put the food in our food supply without reporting it to the FDA. Many biotech food companies don’t feel they should have to be responsible for ensuring that their foods are safe. In a New York Times Interview, Monsanto’s Director of Corporate Communications stated that “Monsanto should not have to vouch the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.”

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) strongly urges consumers to avoid genetically modified foods. Studies link GMOs with toxins, allergies, infertility, infant mortality, immune dysfunction, stunted growth, accelerated aging, and death. The Institute for Responsible Technology has listed many of these studies on their website, here are just a few of the findings of that they list:

  • Thousands of sheep, buffalo, and goats in India died after grazing on Bt cotton plants
  • Mice eating GM corn for the long term had fewer, and smaller, babies
  • More than half the babies of mother rats fed GM soy died within three weeks, and were smaller
  • Testicle cells of mice and rats on a GM soy change significantly
  • By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies
  • Rodents fed GM corn and soy showed immune system responses and signs of toxicity
  • Cooked GM soy contains as much as 7-times the amount of a known soy allergen
  • Soy allergies skyrocketed by 50% in the UK, soon after GM soy was introduced
  • The stomach lining of rats fed GM potatoes showed excessive cell growth, a condition that may lead to cancer.
  • Studies showed organ lesions, altered liver and pancreas cells, changed enzyme levels, etc.

RETURN TO TOP

Why Do We Have GMOs in the United States?

Why do we have GMOs in the United States, when some countries like Europe are virtually GMO-free? It’s all about the “tipping point”. A tipping point is “the critical point in an evolving situation that leads to a new and irreversible development”. Europe hit the tipping point in April 1999, enough consumers stopped buying GMO foods to hurt the industry. Within one week of hitting this tipping point, all major food producers committed to ending the use of genetically modified ingredients in their products. These same companies are still using genetically modified ingredients in their US products. According to author and GMO expert Jeffrey M. Smith, if 5% of the US population refused to purchase genetically modified foods, major food manufacturers would no longer use genetically modified ingredients. Smith reports that there are several reasons that we have not hit the tipping point in the United States:

  • the American population has not been educated on genetically modified foods
  • American consumers don’t know which products contain genetically modified ingredients, due to lack of labeling

According to a poll completed by CBS and the New York Times, if genetically modified foods were labeled today, 53% of Americans would not purchase the labeled products. Smith predicts that even if 9 out of 10 of these Americans did not follow through with refusing to purchase these products, it would still be enough to reach our tipping point in the United States.

How Can I Protect Myself and My Family From GMOs

Without food labeling, it’s overwhelming to even begin removing all genetically modified foods from our diets. According to Smith, there are four tips to protect ourselves from genetically modified foods:

  • Buy organic foods
  • Avoid the top ten at-risk ingredients:
    • Zucchini
    • Cotton
    • Canola
    • Aspartame
    • Dairy
    • Corn
    • Papaya
    • Soy
    • Yellow Squash
    • Sugar (derived from sugar beets)
    • Buy products that are labeled as being non-GMO
    • Buy products that are listed in a non-GMO shopping guide

The Institute for Responsible Technology is an excellent resource for obtaining reliable information about avoiding genetically modified foods.

“The Institute for Responsible Technology is a world leader in educating policy makers and the public about genetically modified (GM) foods and crops. We investigate and report their risks and impact on health, environment, the economy, and agriculture, as well as the problems associated with current research, regulation, corporate practices, and reporting.

Founded in 2003 by international bestselling author and GMO expert Jeffrey Smith, IRT has worked in more than 30 countries on 6 continents, and is credited with improving government policies and influencing consumer-buying habits.

IRT’s work comes from a dedicated team of subject experts, consultants and staff who generously donate their time and experience. In addition, IRT employs media experts, social network campaigners, writers, graphic designers, communications specialists, fundraisers, outreach professionals and support staff, who operate both at our headquarters in Iowa, and from virtual offices in the US.

IRT’s Campaign for Healthier Eating in America mobilizes citizens, organizations, businesses, healthcare professionals, and the media, to achieve the tipping point of consumer rejection of GM foods.”

The Institute for Responsible Technology has created an iPhone app to help consumers protect themselves from GMOs. The organization has also created a GMO Education program that provides a wealth of information about genetically modified foods such as:

  • The health risks associated with genetically modified foods
  • A shopping guide
  • The environmental dangers imposed by genetically modified foods
  • A physician’s guide
  • Tips on determining whether a product is genetically modified based on package labeling

What is Proposition 37?

On the November 6 2012 ballot, Californians will be voting on whether the food industry in California should be required to label genetically modified foods. If passed, the law will:

  • Require labeling on raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if made from plants or
    animals with genetic material changed in specified ways.
  • Prohibit labeling or advertising such food, or other processed food, as “natural.”
  • Exempt foods that are: certified organic; unintentionally produced with genetically engineered material; made from animals fed or injected with genetically engineered material but not genetically
    engineered themselves; processed with or containing only small amounts of genetically engineered
    ingredients; administered for treatment of medical conditions; sold for immediate consumption such as in a restaurant; or alcoholic beverages.

There are companies that have donated money to fight against the law, and other companies that have donated money to support the law; over $34,000,000 has been donated by those opposed, over $4,000,000 has been donated by those supporting. On the opposing side, the top five contributing companies include: Monsanto, Pepsico (which also manufactures Naked Juice and Izze), Coca-Cola (which also manufactures HONEST Tea, Odwalla, and Simply Orange), ConAgra (which also manufactures Lightlife and Alexia), and General Mills (which also manufactures Muir Glen, Cascadian Farm Organics, and Larabar). On the supporting side, the top five contributing companies include: Dr. Joseph Mercola, The Organic Consumers Association, Nature’s Path Organic, Dr. Bronner’s Magic All-One, and Lundberg Family Farms. You can view all contributing companies on the Cornucopia Institute’s website.

What Additional Resources are Available to Become a More Informed Consumer?

The Institute for Responsible Technology has recently released a documentary about genetically modified foods called ‘Genetic Roulette‘. This documentary is available to view online for FREE until October 31st, thanks to generous donations from to Nutiva, Bragg Live Food Products, Kamut, Frey Vineyards, Organic Pastures Dairy, EO Products, Berlin Natural Bakery, and Leo Younger. This documentary is a must-see for all!

“When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.

After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.

This seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.”

Genetically Modified Foods: Are They Safe?

Currently in the US, it is estimated that 70% of processed foods on our grocery store shelves contain genetically modified ingredients. Are these genetically modified food safe? I’ve done some research, and this is what I’ve found! READ MORE.

The Health Effects of Genetically Modified Coffee

This year coffee consumption in the United States has jumped ahead of soft drink consumption by more than 10%. The United States imports 35% of the world coffee bean supply to keep up with our consumption of over 400 million cups of coffee per day OR 4500 cups of coffee per second. The increasing popularity of coffee shows no sign of stopping; in 2010 56% of Americans consumed coffee, now in 2012 64% of Americans enjoy the beverage. How healthy is it to consume that much coffee? How are coffee bean farmers keeping up to our demand? READ MORE.

Eating Disorder Pro Radio Show – Q&A – Epidemic of Obesity & Escalation of Eating Disorders

Listen to internet radio with Eating Disorder Pro on Blog Talk Radio

In this episode we answered your questions about last week’s episode on the Epidemic of Obesity & Escalation of Eating Disorders (you can also review the show notes for more information).

The obesity epidemic has negatively impacted the entire U.S. health care system and reversed a 20-year trend of longer life expectancy for certain segments of the population, primarily today’s children.

If the present rate of occurrence continues, the entire population will be obese by the year 2030. Likewise, eating disorders (ED’s) such as Anorexia, are growing in numbers and reaching new segments of the population, including younger children, middle-aged women and men. These are groups that have been relatively unaffected by ED’s in the past.

In this episode we covered:

1:47 – About Dr Norton

2:54 – Podcast Overview

4:27 – Obesity and Eating Disorders in the US

8:32 – Why Are We Seeing an Increase in Obesity and Eating Disorders in the US

12:04 – The Role of Pop Culture in Obesity and Eating Disorders

12:37 – The Role of Nutrition in Overcoming Obesity and Eating Disorders

14:27 – Caller Success Story

22:08 – Caller Question – What are some reliable websites to obtain accurate information about our food supply?

26:22 – Caller Question – How to Eat Healthy in the Workplace (Travelling, Prepared Meals)

Maji and Mongo: How Maji Gets Mongo Off the Couch

Full Text Transcript

Good Evening! Welcome to Eating Disorder Pro. I’m Dr. Renae Norton and I’ll be your host. This is our very first blog talk radio show. Our debut. Our maiden voyage, as it were. So I’m sure there’ll be some mistakes, a few dead silences, accidental hang-ups. Just don’t change that channel.  Because we have good content show here and something worth hearing if you are struggling with disordered eating.

Our topic this evening is going to be the connection between obesity and eating disorders in the U.S. So if you have been struggling with an eating disorder, if you’ve been in and out of treatment, and nothing works, you’re still bingeing, purging or restricting you’ve come to the right place. Maybe you are on that roller coaster that many of us have been on of losing and gaining weight, and you can’t figure out what you are doing wrong. You’ve come to the right place. Maybe you have a child that can’t stop eating, or maybe you have a child that is terrified of food. Whatever the problem, if it has to do with eating, you are right where you should be!

So log on, tune in and call in.  The number, by the way, is 646-378-0494.

I think it’s probably a good idea to start with a little bit about me. I’m a clinical psychologist with a specialty in family treatment and neuropsychology. I’ve been in practice for the last 25 years and have specialized in the treatment of eating disorders almost exclusively for the past ten years. I’d appreciate if you’d visit my website at www.eatingdisorderpro.com.

Be sure to check out my latest book called “How Maji Gets Mongo Off the Couch!”. It is the first of a series of books for children designed to interest them in a healthier lifestyle.  Maji, who is a very healthy little dog, meets Mongo and takes him under his wing.  When they meet Maji is very active and Mongo is pretty much a couch potato. Maji patiently gets Mongo to move out of his comfort zone and off the couch. Eventually Mongo finds the healthy part of himself and the two have great adventures together.  Check it out by going to my website.

As far as the content for this evening’s show, much of it is result of research that I am doing for another more serious book, coming out in the Fall called “Cycles of Shame”. “Cycles of Shame” looks at the epidemic of obesity that we have in the United States, the expanding eating disorder population, and the role that food, or more specifically, food addiction plays in both problems. That’s right, I said ‘food addiction’.  Our foods in the United States are polluted with MSG, GMO’s (or genetically modified ingredients) neurotoxins, obesogens, carcinogens and allergens.  And they are killing us! Perhaps you think that I’m exaggerating?  Consider a few statistics –

  • Obesity is epidemic in the US and has reversed a 20-year trend of longer life expectancy especially for today’s children.
  • If the present rate of obesity continues, the entire population will be obese by the year 2030.
  • Likewise, eating disorders such as anorexia are growing reaching new segments of the population, primarily younger children (sometimes cases with children that are only 6 years of age), middle-aged women and many more men. It used to be that only about 5% of the eating disorder population was men, this has moved up recently to about 10%. I think it’s actually continuing to move. The important thing about these new groups is they were relatively unaffected by eating disorders in the past. It’s very significant that they are getting worse.

So, how do we compare to other developed nations?

One thing to think about is whether this is just us or whether this is something that is happening around the world. In fact, it really is mostly just us. Other countries are getting fatter, eating disorders are pretty much a phenomenon of the United States. They are a phenomenon of other countries, but only when they become westernized or in other words, start eating our food.

What’s happening in our country that’s different than in other countries, is that our food is essentially polluted and its taking a terrible toll on the populous.

The United States life expectancy is 42nd in the world, lagging behind almost all other developed nations. In the 1990’s the U.S. was in 11th place. That’s a tremendous difference, a huge difference

Infant Mortality – In 1960, the U.S. had the 12th lowest infant mortality rate in the world. In 2008 we were in 34th place. One of the variables that significantly impacts infant mortality rates is the nutritional status of the mother during pregnancy.

Health Care – It isn’t that we are ignoring health care.  We pay more for it than any other country in the world. In the United States, we spend on average $6,714. This is more than twice the average for individuals in any other country, unfortunately.  A sizeable portion of the overall health care spending in the U.S. is directly or indirectly related to obesity and its many complications.

So, what is causing this? Why is this happening in the United States and not in other countries? Part of the problem is definitely our culture. Pop culture plays a significant role. There are several factors that may be contributing to these problems. Pop culture weighs in by glamorizing extreme thinness, while simultaneously promoting excessive, often gluttonous eating.

Most people who overeat assume that they are entirely at fault. To begin with, they ignore the fact that our culture puts a lot of pressure on them. We are also bombarded with advertisements extolling the virtues of foods that are actually extremely dangerous.  We are not clued in that the foods are dangerous. We are pretty much clueless when it comes to the safety of or food supply. It’s sort of a cultural myth that “the government protects us from dangerous substances”, because of that we assume that it’s our fault that there is something wrong with us. “Maybe it’s my metabolism, maybe I’m just lazy”.

The self-blame and shame that follows drive yo-yo dieting, bingeing followed by purging, and restricting followed by overeating or bingeing.   That puts us in a frame of mind that makes the problem significantly worse. The behaviors that we’re talking about and the pressures people in the United States are under are the opposite of reality.

Despite the fact that scientists and public interest groups point to the escalation of toxic additives in the U.S. food supply as a major contributing factor in our declining health, the warnings go unheeded.

We have a tendency to “blame the victim”. So, what this refers to is that the individual with the problem is often blamed for having the problem. This is really unfortunate because it’s very difficult for someone who is blamed for the problem (especially if they accept the blame) to solve the problem under these circumstances. The upshot of “blaming the victim” is that those seeking treatment for obesity and eating disorders are often stigmatized, the may be disenfranchised, managed care may cost them.

In the industry today, it’s not uncommon for people that are obese to be excluded from their managed care policies. Perhaps they are excluded for anything that has to do with their obesity or weight problem. This is definitely “blaming the victim” and disenfranchising people who need help. By disenfranchising, their condition gets worse and expenses go up.

We really have a problem with affordable or available treatment, of course this increases relapse rates. Often, the anorexic patient is allowed one inpatient stay. After that, if she needs residential care again, she pays for it out of pocket. A month of residential stay can cost as much as $30,000, that’s usually prohibitive for most families.

The misplaced blame that “it’s the way we eat” makes it very difficult to find real solutions to the problems that people have today.

Another problem, another thing that is part of our culture is that treatment ignores or is often ignorant of the role of safe nutrition. In general, most of the treatment we get in this country is for the symptoms. Often treatment incorporates pharmaceutical remedies, some of which make the symptoms even worse.

In a nutshell, treatment does not recognize the role that food additives play in obesity and eating disorders. They damage parts of the endocrine system that are responsible for healthy weight management.

Because treatment uses in incorrect underlying assumption, the focus is always on the relative amounts of food; the number of calories, or the relative amounts of fat, carbs and protein. It rarely looks at the quality of the food that we should be looking at. That frame of reference often prevents people from actually recovering from their eating disorders. A good example would be: if you suffer from anorexia and you are in a residential treatment program, it’s very possible that the food that you would eat during the refeeding phase has so many toxins, obesogens, allergens and sweeteners that they actually do more damage than good. Likewise, for people that are dieting, the severe reduction in calories during the diet impacts your metabolism in a way that is suppressed, getting slower and slower. This results in “normal” eating causing rapid weight gain.

In future programs, we’ll be talking about what happens to the endocrine system depending on the types of food we are eating and what the endocrine system does. It actually tries to do many adaptive things that are actually maladaptive.

There are also “new” eating disorders on the horizon that are very troublesome. The one that worries me most that I’ve been seeing the most of in my private practice is a combination of anorexia and bulimia, known as bulimarexia. Bulimarexia is very troubling because if there is such thing as the “best of both worlds” it’s the “worst of both worlds”. The complications of bulimarexia are significant and often life threatening, more so than anorexia. Anorexia is currently the most life threatening emotional disorder one can have. Bulimarexia, which again is not on the radar of most practitioners, is popping up frequently. We don’t really seem to know what to do with it, how it is happening, why it is happening, let alone know how to help people overcome it or recover. I think there is a direct link between bulimarexia and the food that we are eating in this country presently.

Finally, last but not least, in terms of how our culture plays in these problems there is very little applied research. In the research that is available, it’s very unclear that certain food additives damage parts of the brain responsible for weight management. However, the very obvious indicators that there is a problem are being ignored. There is very little research demonstrating the safety of GMOs, yet in the United States you can barely buy a food that doesn’t have a genetically modified ingredient. But, that’s another show for the future. We’ll be talk about what that means, how it impacts obesity, how it impacts eating disorders. So stay tuned for that one.

The main problem , or saddest thing, is what is happening right now to children in the country, they pay the biggest price. There is an epidemic of obesity among U.S. children. It is not uncommon today for a child to leave the pediatrician’s office with a diagnosis of Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure, a heart condition or joint deterioration.  These diseases, are things our grandparents used to get. Right?

It’s crazy what we are seeing with little children. We have the fattest children in the world. We are the only country in the world right now that has obese infants. If you want to know, it’s because food additives target children’s foods. Just as an example, I have a can of Gerber Goodstart baby formula. Let me read some of the ingredients. Ok, the first one is “corn maltodextrin”. First of all, it’s GMO. Second of all, it’s MSG. “Vegetable Oil”, we have “palm” (that’s good), “soy” (that’s bad), “coconut” (that’s good), “safflower” and “sunflower” (those are both bad). Then we have “enzymatically hydrolyzed soy protein isolate”, that’s MSG. Then we have “sucrose”, that’s not good. We finally get to a relatively “good” ingredient; we have some “calcium” here, but only 2%. What we’re talking about here is that out of the first ten ingredients or so, seven or eight of them are either GM or some form of MSG. MSG is a neurotoxin; GMOs cause all kinds of endocrine problems including obesity.

We have some major problems when it comes to the foods we are feeding our children. The result is they are the first generation in many, many years to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. They are the fattest children in the world, they are tied only with Scotland.

So what is causing this mess?  A list of things we’ll be talking about in the future are:

  • Food Addiction
  • GMOs
  • MSG and the impact it has on obesity
  • Healthy vs Unhealthy Fats
  • Grass-fed animal protein versus grain-fed animal protein.

Be sure to catch us when we are reviewing these topics. The call-in number tonight is 646-378-0494.

For this evening, suffice it to say, the missing link for many is the role that food additives play. Most Americans assume that foods in the U.S. are safe. WRONG!  We have been led to believe that we are the problem and that the reason we are having all of these problems is that we are lazy, or glutinous or uninterested in being healthy. WRONG! Finally we believe that our children are spoiled which is why they fall on the floor frothing at the mouth when they don’t get Chicken McNuggets. WRONG AGAIN!

For the past 40 years, there has been an escalation of substances known for their neuro-toxic, obesogenic, diabetic, carcinogenic, addictive and allergic impact added to the American food supply for the simple reason that these things increase profits for the food industry.  Scientists convincingly demonstrate that these additives damage the systems that regulate appetite, fat storage and weight gain or weight loss.

The fact is that they are highly addictive, they cause food cravings, binge eating, food obsessions, weight gain, weight loss, allergies and some of the worst chronic illnesses of our time. The problem is that they are everywhere!

Food additives and/or GMO ingredients are found in 95% of processed foods in the U.S.   A processed food is any food that comes in a bottle, box, bag, can, carton or shrink-wrap, as well as the vast majority of deli and restaurant foods. So, pretty much everything we are eating, unless we are eating a fruit or vegetable, frying up a chicken breast, or maybe having some fish. Dangerous additives are more common, and found in higher quantities in children’s foods. This is a serious problem for our future generations.

The problem is that most people don’t know what they are, let alone how dangerous they are. And then there is the issue of finding foods without them. It’s tricky; however it’s really worth it. When you do find the foods that don’t have food additives in them, you are going to discover some amazing things. First of all, the foods are absolutely delicious. What you will discover is that it’s very easy to maintain the correct weight. How can that be?

  • For one thing, when you are eating foods that are not toxic, your blood sugar levels will stabilize. This means it will be hard to gain weight; unless you are anorexic, in which case your weight gain will be slow and steady.
  • Your cravings will disappear, since you will be extinguishing the food addictions you have developed unknowingly.
  • Your allergies will improve or go away.
  • For those of you who think you are gluten intolerant (and so many people today do), you may discover that you are not, that you are allergic to GMO’s or herbicides and insecticides. It’s interesting, I have a patient that was certain that she was gluten-intolerant. She went to Italy, where there are no GMOs. She ate the pasta and the bread (because she was in Italy) and had no allergic reactions whatsoever. Likewise, I have many patients that thinking they have dairy allergies. When I turn them onto whole milk that is from an A2 casein grassfed or pastured cow, they have no allergic reaction. What’s more delicious than a glass of whole milk, or whipped cream that you can put blueberries in? One of my obese patients (who has lost well over 100 pounds at this point) said that the most significant, positive thing about this approach was the fact that he was able to eat homemade whipped cream and strawberries every night before bed.

I have patients that come in today that are bulimarexic or anorexic that are losing their teeth, are having kidney failure and losing their hair. In the last 2 years, on three different occasions, I’ve had patients with no teeth. In one case, it wasn’t even possible for her to have implants because she had no jaw left. I also have patients at a very young age that have such severe osteoporosis that they suffer from kyphosis. That isn’t something that any one should experience anyone should experience. The reason they are experiencing these things at such a young age is because not only are they anorexic, but the foods they do eat are loaded with dangerous food additives, one of which is a sweetener.

For those of you that are guzzling down those diet soft drinks, you really need to find some substitutes. If you go to my website (www.eatingdisorderpro.com), you will find a lot of really good suggestions in handouts and articles on my blog. One drink, for example, that I think is exceptionally good is a drink by a company called “Q”. There’s a “Q Cola” a “Q Gingerale” and, for those of you who like a good vodka and tonic, there’s “Q Tonic” and it’s excellent. They only have 16 grams of carbohydrates.

What impact does obesity have on us? We know for the adult there is depression, reduced earning power, infertility and isolation are common among adults who are obese. It’s very difficult if not impossible for people to travel, very difficult for the morbidly obese to go to restaurants and to the movies. But what about individuals who have been obese since they were 3 or 4, and end up with Type II Diabetes by the time they are 10 or 11?  What are the developmental issues at risk for such individuals?  What are the implications for our society? Where does this leave us in comparison to other countries in the world that aren’t having these problems?

What impact are we seeing with eating disorders?  Eating disorders also take a toll on life expectancy. For example, females between the ages of 15 and 24 who suffer from anorexia have the highest mortality rate for that age range. Studies have also shown that the risk for early death is twice as high for anorexic’s that purge.

Presently, the prevalence of purging anorexics or bulimarexics is on the rise. That particular type of eating disorder is a perfect example of what happens when you take someone who is afraid of eating and expose her to foods that are addictive. She can’t resist the impulse to eat these addictive foods. Unfortunately, she often learns to eat them when she is in a residential treatment center. Once this happens, she is at her wit’s end to know what to do and ends up purging. These are the patients I see with such horrendous complications; liver failure, cirrhosis of the liver, kidney failure, calcium problems (bones shattering, being unable to keep their teeth in their mouth) and endless horrible things like that. This new disorder appears to be driven by food addictions and/or intense food cravings, both of which have increased with the increase in food additives that we see in the American diet.

There seems to be a connection between the variables driving the epidemic of obesity, the changing demographics of eating disorders, and the escalating medical complications in both populations.  Just as an example (aside from the fact that we are being subjected to food additives that are extremely dangerous), another connection is being obese as a child puts one at greater risk for being anorexic, or bulimarexic, later in life.

Today 17% of U.S. children between the ages of 2 and 19 are obese according the Center for Disease Control, that’s a scary scenario. By implication many more children may be at risk for developing an eating disorder in the future.  A history of childhood obesity also makes recovery less likely for those suffering from anorexia or bulimarexia. They tend to be much more frightened of the refeeding process and has a much higher likelihood of relapse.

Not only is the general public unaware of the impact that food additives may be having on their health or the health of their children, especially when it comes to disordered eating, but practitioners also appear to be fairly in the dark.  This is unacceptable. Americans can’t help that they are basically being sold a bill of goods about the safety of our foods. Practitioners should have a higher standard to meet.

There is research documenting the role that food additives are having on weight regulatory systems in the body, yet this connection is not yet on the radar of a lot of practitioners, which may help to explain why recovery rates for obesity and eating disorders are so low. It’s really not uncommon today, if you have anorexia, to have your physician or if you end in the ER to have the physician to ask you a question like “Why are you doing this to yourself?” This tends to be experienced as very judging for most people in that situation, it’s just not helpful.

What are the recovery rates for these problems? Not great. For example, recovery rates across treatment modalities for those with anorexia and bulimia are only about 50% at best.  They drop to 30% for treatment that relies primarily upon residential care. For those who are obese, or overweight, the failure rate is even higher, in as much as 95% percent of all those who try to lose weight by dieting alone fail. Finally, when one considers that yo-yo dieting is a significant risk factor for developing an ED and that approximately 41% of the U.S. population is on a diet at any given time; the outlook is dismal at best.

Why is this happening here and not in other countries? In a nutshell other countries regulate these additives or prohibit them altogether. The pollution of the American food supply is a silent but deadly problem.  It is also comes at a high cost.

It is silent because the American public buys products assumed to be safe that are anything but safe. The average citizen is simply not aware that Citric Acid, Malted Barley, or Natural Flavorings are neurotoxins.

Likewise, most people assume that buying a food that is certified “organic” is safe. But organic foods are not necessarily safe, in as much as the FDA allows unsafe additives to be put into the vast majority of processed foods, including those that are “organic.”

If you want to be sure that your food is safe, it must say 100% organic. If it doesn’t, it’s not necessarily safe. It if says “USDA Certified Organic”, it will be 95% safe, but can still contain 5% GMO ingredients, MSG and other unhealthy additives. If it says it is made with “organic ingredients” it doesn’t mean anything; it could have anything in it. We have to be very careful, and that’s the point. Why do we have to be careful? Why do we have to mistrust a label? The reason is simple: If we don’t mistrust the label we are likely putting ourselves in danger.

The pollution of our food supply is deadly because it results in decreased life expectancy, premature infant mortality, and the mortal complications of ED’s and obesity.  The toxification of the U.S. food supply is costly because it contributes to the increased incidence of the most costly diseases of our time, including obesity and its complications, various types of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

These problems have long-term implications, as the largest and most profitable market targeted for dangerous food additives is children’s food, beginning with infant formula. Not surprisingly, childhood obesity in the U.S. is epidemic, beginning with obese infants.  This is a first in our history and does not occur in other countries.

There are a number of things that you can do to protect yourself; you can find help for what to do on our website. There are also other organizations that are watching out for you, those are watch-out groups. It would be very helpful and worth your while for you to search these out if you haven’t already. Again, we have a list of resources and places you can find good information that you can trust.

[Caller Question] I have a question. I was wondering what is more dangerous: anorexia, bulimia or obesity?

[Dr. Norton] That’s a very good question. Let’s take obesity first. Most people don’t die from obesity; they die from the complications of obesity. I guess I could say that about anorexia as well and also about bulimia. This is a very good question because the answer is changing. It used to be that you didn’t start to become obese until middle age, and then you might die from some of the complications like heart disease, perhaps type II diabetes. However, with obesity beginning in childhood and infancy we don’t really know what it’s going to do. We know that it has lowered life expectancy of children presently for the first time in several decades. At this point, I would have to pick obesity as being the most dangerous. I can tell you that since bulimarexia doesn’t really have a diagnosis; we aren’t really tracking it, but at some point I’m sure we will. At that point, I am thinking it’s going to be viewed as a more lethal disorder. So, I’m not sure if I really answered your question.

[Call dropped]
