“Now I can’t give my patients a lecture.
I don’t have time, every morning, every time I see them, to give them a lecture. So I have a simple rule.
Two, the first rule is,
Junk free. Eliminate sugar, I define junk as any food containing added sugar, junk free.
And if you do that, you find that you also eliminate 90% of all the other additives.
Because if you read the labels of food, you never find sugar alone, you always find dyes, and colors and additives and preservatives; these are always present, so, junk free, knocks out 90% of the other additives.
If I tell my patients, cut down your sugar by half. They may cut it down 5 or 10%. If I tell them to cut it out entirely, then, they may cut it down by 80%.
Which is better than it was before, now; the advantage of junk free is that you knock out all these prepared foods, the pasta...
Uh, not so much the pasta but the uh, the uh, sugar uh desserts,
are knocked out, and they are generally devoid of the important minerals and vitamins. They’re not there.
So if you eat only a diet, which is high in junk. Let’s say that 50% of your diet is sugar. You are not obtaining the right minerals and vitamins, which the body needs, in order to use these foods properly.
So you are generally going to go into a chronic deficiency state. This is what I think is happening.
So junk free is the first rule.”
Cheers to your health-
