A BOOK REVIEW ON

WHY DIETS ARE FAILING AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

By Peter Greenlaw

You just had a big lunch and within two hours you are hungry.

Very hungry.

Your stomach is still full.  You had a huge Chinese meal or whatever else you have eaten.

Plenty of food.  If it happens to be Chinese, you have been served a huge bowl of white or fried rice.

Starting with egg rolls and the on to Sweet and Sour Shrimp or whatever else you have chosen.

Or, a big steak with baked potato and all the trimmings.  Don’t forget the hot fudge sundae.  You deserve a little treat.

BUT YOUR BODY IS SCREAMING FOR NUTRITION.  REAL NUTRITION.

That’s why you think you are hungry.  You have consumed hundreds of toxins.  They are all around us.

In the air we breathe, in the vegetables which have been genetically modified, in the water we drink.

Peter’s book is a shock.  Be prepared.  Starting with the information that a new baby’s umbilical cord has 287 toxic chemicals.  Just for starters.

These toxins are stored in the body as fat.  It is how we protect ourselves.  And why diets fail.  And why you are not as healthy or vigorous as you think you should be.

It is not too late to change.  It starts with a cleansing.  And follows with a new way of eating.

Yes, his program has a cost.  But look at your bookcase and add up what you have spent on diet books.  Probably a lot.

One of the reviews on Peter’s book was exciting.  A reader wrote –

I have been using this product for three years.  When I started, I was 77 and felt many years beyond that.  Now that I am 80, I feel 20 years younger.  I have all kinds of energy and am a productive member of society.

Before you count one more calorie or point, read his book.

Your life is precious and you have lots of plans for the rest of it.

WILL YOU MAKE THE SMALL INVESTMENT IN IT?

Corinne,
This is so true. I haven’t read this book yet, but I’ve watched 3 documentaries that were very informative: Homo Toxicus, Food Matters, and The Gerson Miracle. We are malnourished gluttons.

My comment is long, based on what I learned, and I don’t mean to contradict the author. I have a feeling I probably won’t.

The complex reasons for empty food aren’t just in the food we buy and eat, it’s the entire world food production system, and the oil and chemical industries involvement. It’s hard to understand if you’re not into science, and genetics in particular. People are afraid of “Frankenfood” because they don’t understand how it’s modified. What we should understand and be angry about is world food production; angry enough to change it.

We all need to eat a lot more organically grown produce, organic eggs, dairy, and a little bit of meat, but being a vegetarian is fine too. Soy isn’t necessarily that great an option. It depends on whether it is organic or not. Soy is factory farmed for the most part.

The common wisdom that I’ve seen for the human diet so far is 51% minimum vegetables and fruits. More is better. The more raw the better. There are many effective methods to detoxify your body as well.

I’m a scientist, and genetically modified foods are not necessarily bad. They are not “Frankenfood” and should not be feared just because they are genetically modified. That’s not the real problem.

For example, golden rice has had a gene inserted that produces beta carotene in the rice, and millions of poor Asians are no longer going blind. The genetically modified seeds can be grown organically otherwise, and provide excellent nutrition.

Problem? Monsanto demands poor farmers buy new seeds (or pay license fees) every year instead of saving seeds from the current crop, like they’ve always done. Fortunately, patents are limited and then expire permanently.

Genetically modified is the short cut science has learned to cut off hundreds to thousands of years of selective breeding. We should save genetic modification to improve the nutrition of the food we need, and then grow it organically, outlawing the patents.

But not all genetically modified foods (seeds) are good for people in the sense of providing better nutrition. Many are just good for Monsanto or other mega-growers; ADM comes to mind. We have to stop them from taking unmodified seeds off the market. They’re buying them up making them scarce and expensive. That’s where the real problem lies. Unmodified seeds should be as plentiful as they always were.

The GMO most popularly known is “Round-up Ready” corn. It’s genetically modified to be immune to the herbicide Round-up. It doesn’t produce any chemicals to ward off Round-up. The plants’ immune systems are immune to the effects of Round-up, like we are vaccinated and become immune to Measles or Tetanus. Humans also have genes to ward off very deadly diseases, like plague. Plague is 60%-95% lethal, yet plagues only wiped out 1/3 of populations when they struck. Why? Hardwired, genetic immunity.

But being Round-up Ready means the fields are sprayed with Round-up to kill unwanted weeds. Round-up is toxic. You can wash your produce and most of it will come off, but not all of it. We eat the tiny residual amounts and it collects in our bodies, mostly in fat. GMO crops that are immune to insects would reduce and stop the need to spray insecticides, as well. But they are expensive b/c they are still patented. So our best bet is strong organic plants that are resistant naturally.

Where did we get these genes? From plants that naturally produced these characteristic. We isolated the genes, replicated them, and inserted them into seed-producing plants that would pass on the genes to future generations.

Monsanto is right that it cuts down on the amount of spraying they have to do to kill weeds, and that part is good. But the bad part is all this stuff is going the wrong direction for a thriving planet with an abundance of healthy food.

GMOs are designed to make factory farming more efficient. We need to get away from factory farming completely. We need to grow everything locally and organically, and stop transporting food all over the world. We don’t need to spend energy (oil) and the pollution it produces to move so much food around when it can be grown locally. It can be grown on urban rooftops, community gardens and small organic farms near population centers.

Food that is non-nutritious is a big problem, but why it is that way and making the changes to fix it depend on a lot of effort from we the people demanding organic food, and voting with our wallets by buying locally grown, in-season produce and dairy, and cutting way down on meat. When we eat meat, we can consume organic meat.

It takes 10 times more energy to produce factory-farmed meat to eat than if we eat the plants, milk and eggs produced. I’m not going to get into the antibiotic misuse in meat production. That’s another long and complex story, but just as important.

In case you’re depressed about all this, most good wine and micro-brewed beer are completely natural. They can’t be labeled organic because they contain alcohol, but they’re made from organic grapes, water and yeast (wine), or organic barley and hops, water, and yeast (beer).

Beer is an important reason the human population thrived when we became farmers, and started having water pollution problems. Contaminated water makes you sick; making beer out of it cleans it up and makes it safe to drink. :)

Dear Sherri -

Just to say how much I appreciate your friendship, time and your being my superb, intelligent and my favorite guest blogger.

You add all those things to my blog. Everyone reads them and is more educated as a result.

You always add a new demension. I am grateful to have a scientist as a partner.

Don’t ever go away.

Much love and and a spectacular New Year. You are due for a good one.

2013 is your year.

Dear Corinne,
Thank you so much!

I’m honored, humbled and blushing. I don’t think I’d still be writing if it weren’t for your friendship and encouragement. When I get stuck, I ask my self what would Corinne tell me to do? If I’m really stuck, I actually ask you! I invite you to write a guest post for my blog.

I’m happy to contribute scientific knowledge to anyone and everyone, hopefully in ways that are more easily understood. It’s come to the point where citizens have to be science savvy in a lot of areas to understand the policies lawmakers propose, and whether they will solve a problem or create a worse one.

I’m not going anywhere, online anyway. I’m still trying to save my house. If I can’t, we are occupying it until my mortgage servicer works out a payment plan. I’m working on starting an Occupy Our Homes-Baton Rouge chapter. There isn’t one anywhere in Louisiana, and the Occupy BR group is willing to help and support the project.

This New Years’ Eve at midnight Pacific time, I joined a world-wide group meditation initiated by an LA psychotherapist and empath (Cathy DeBuono), and it was powerful. There were around 120 of us. I meditate, but I’ve never felt the presence of so much collective energy before. I feel stronger and more able to go forward and follow my own heart, control my depression, and get things done that really matter to me and to the world.

And to stop letting my family get me down. They’re good at that, and one thing I’m working on this year is not feeling defeated when they knock down what I do instead of “getting a real job”. This is all far harder work than when I worked for someone else. My mom especially is risk-averse, and freaks out when an outcome isn’t predictable beyond her tiny world view.

Much love to you, too, and I wish you a great new year. We all deserve better times than we’ve had in over a decade.

I’m going to do everything I can to make 2013 better for everyone.

Hi Corinne,
It is amazing how well we feel after we removed artificial/processed foods from our diet and replace it with a whole, organic diet based on fueling our body for health.

This process of change can be slow at first but eventually the shift is possible. I went vegetarian last May and I absolutely love the results.

Do you think Eastern Europe is the only one area that overdoes it on food in the holidays?

You have plenty of company in the US.

We are all the same.

Sorry for my late reply, i just saw the comment here.
I was referring that we like to cook the food indoors, and doing so, we tend to exaggerate with the quantities plus the we really like meat, steaks, potatoes, everything as fat as possible :))
Fat is sweet! :))

Hi Corinne,

Wow this sounds very interesting, Why Diets are Failing Us. What you are saying about the book makes sense, guess I am going to have to get it.

Didn’t get that Kindle for Christmas so guess I’ll have to go with the paper back.

Thanks Corinne for more good information.

Happy New Year and hugs to you.

Buy YOURSELF A KINDLE, Debbie.

Buy the one that is just one up from the cheapest.

You don’t need the Fire. My kids bought me one last year and I still can’t figure it out.

All I wanted is to read books – that’s all.

There are lot of things that the people decided not to repeat in 2013. But after a month ago we forget to do so. I have also decided to join the Health club for my fitness and to wake early in the morning.

Hey Corinne,
The opening lines of the post seem so similar to my everyday story. I eat full , yet feel terribly hungry. Very true, organic foods are indeed a healthy option to keep the vital nutrients intact in the diet. I will share this post, with my friends in order to spread the noble words. Thanks for writing this post.

Dear Aayna -

Looks like you should get the book – and then go to the author’s website for more information.

It’s a common problem lots of us have.

See if what he suggests calls out to you.

In my opinion, there is nothing that can really stop you from following your dreams. One has to be persistent and patient to follow all the time and effort it takes to make one’s dreams come true. Inspiring post indeed.

Dear Fatima -

I think the best we humans can do is to follow our dreams most of the time.

When we don’t, as my dear Mom used to say,

“Pick yourself up – dust yourself off – and start all over again.”

She believed there were great lessons in failing.

I think that most of all would need a diet at the beginning of the new new, during the holidays, we all got some kind of fat, although it isn’t visible. I weight 3kg more than a months before, and that’s significant, so I’ve decided to do a diet (again) as well…

I can relate to it. Sometimes, I leave the house full and then once I ride the car, all of a sudden, I feel hungry again. It’s nice to know I’m not alone. Anyways, thanks for the ideas about the book to consider. Awesome! :)

I’m in my early 30′s and i have started to get more concerned on what I’m feeding my body. When I was still in my teens I loved fastfood and I was definitely overweight. Thanks to your book review, I’ll definitely read it when I get my hands on it. Kudos to you!

Losing weight – starts in the mind and visualization.

As soon as you open your eyes ensure you see something that triggers action and motives you to lose weight.

I always hated all diets because not many people seems to be able to keep them and get some results.

I am a skinny guy, but really watch out what i’m eating, how i eat, when i eat and do some sport. It’s my “diet” of staying in shape.

If you do everything moderate you won’t be needing any magic pills or so.

Temptation can be tough and that’s why it’s best to stay away from it and keep tempting items out of the house. Some of us have minds of steel or moments when we have them, but the draw of those edibles that take us outside the zone can be so compelling – just THINKING about them starts the release of a pleasure cascade and it seems to drive us to fulfillment!
