Yes but eating a diet with more vegetables and meat with less grains increases the nutritional value you get from your diet.What an absolute load of crap. Phytates bind some nutrients, you're right. BUT any nutrients lost by the binding mechanisms of phytates can be made up for, provided you eat a proper WELL BALANCED DIET. Phytates don't simply automatically just stop your body from absorbing nutrients, they impact on CERTIAN nutrients that are passes through your body but like I said, if you eat a good well balanced diet, it'll make up for any nutrients lost.
Also, that stupid article recommends that you shouldn't eat Broccoli (yes that's right everyone, Broccoli!) unless it's cooked because it's high in phytates. Haha! That'll do me.
Secondly about carbs. You do realise that fruit is a high source of carbs, right? So in fact carbs HAVE been a big part of our diet for millions of years. So I'm not quite sure what you obsession is.
Haha if you say so. My doctor knows what diet I follow and for the record, he's on something similar and advised me to continue with it.I can't believe what I'm reading here. Seriously, seek professional advice spwn, you're reading bullshit.
Nothing quite as reliable as the interwebz...Something something dark side
Something something cult
What about this http://www.crossfitbrisbane.com/blog/trainer-profiles.html they're all highly qualified people should they all seek professional help? Lolz. See the fitness in 100 words section on the left? Oh noes they're all going to die because they consume high levels of fat.
Gram for gram meat and vegetables have a higher nutritional value than grains. That's not to say grains don't have any nutritional value but less so than meat or vegetables. I agree everything in moderation is fine, the little things don't matter. Sweeter fruit sells more, so they make fruit sweeter.That's bullshit. There are A LOT of health benefits in grains. Lots of nutrition. Therefore even if some of the Phytates holds some of the nutrients from vegetables, you get those nutrients back from the nutrients that are in the grains anyway! So eating less grains doesn't increase the nutritional value of your diet at all. And again, if you eat enough fruit and veges anyway, the loss of nutrients from Phytates in grains won't make a tiny bit of difference to your overall health and well being.
f you ate nothing but grains then you might have a problem which is why everything is moderation is fine.
Fruit chemically modified to increase the sugar content? What? Since when?
I don't take anything as Gospel. But Coxy is saying fat is bad for you with absolutely nothing to back it up besides he said so. I'm open minded on these things, I read everything and form an opinion from there. Why should I see a dietician? My health has improved in so many ways, my weight is going down every week and my doctor approves of what I'm doing and is really pleased with my results...I have tried dietician diets before and have failed miserably.Your doctor isn't a dietitian.
And the point Coxy is trying to make is that you read these ridiculous articles that you seem to take as GOSPEL. You should take it all with a grain of salt. Seek opinions from a qualified dietitian. A professional. I'd love to see whether they think Broccoli is bad for you too.....
The heart attack grill is on my to-do list.Nothing quite as reliable as the interwebz...
For the record I really have no idea what you people are all arguing about, but it's somewhat disturbing how vociferously you defend things Spwn.
Dr. Ari suggests you visit the nurses at the heart attack grill for a check up and feed:
It's not too bad tbh. The only things I have cut out completely is junk food, fast food and bread/pasta. Otherwise I eat anything I want as long as I make it myself. So the only food I eat is home cooked. It's a big adjustment because you got to make time to always cook, but 3 months on now and I'm loving the change so I think I can maintain it long term. Usually I fail most diets by week 4-6 haha.It seems like such a radical diet SPWN. Surely a healthy change of lifestyle that you can keep up for a long time is going to be better for you.
Funnily enough you bring up Chia Seeds, guess what's so good about Chia Seeds?What's your point? Every man and their dog knows that veges are more nutritious than grains. But grains are very nutritious (Actually, Chia seeds are pretty awesome and are regarded as a super food btw, and they are grains) and there is absolutely no reason why you should eliminate them from your diet. Have some, no problems. In moderation, no problems. In fact, grains are also good for your bowels.
Everything in moderation, so please don't spill BS about grains being anti-nutrients. They are not. Going by your logic, vegetables are anti-nutrients too. All of them. Want to know why? Too much of certain nutrients can kill off others. Did you know that? This is another reason why they say BALANCED diet. If you just balance everything out, you won't have any nutritional deficiencies
And I'd love to know where you got this information about fruit.
And FTR - Coxy is NOT saying fat is bad for you, he's saying that 40% of fat in your diet is unhealthy. And I tend to agree with him. I know most of it are good fats, but that amount of fat surely can't be good for you. Not for your testosterone levels and certainly not for some of your organs.
They're fully of healthy fats and they contain an excellent Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio which is what I was going on about before. Having an Omega-3/6 ratio of 2:1 or 1:1 will go a long way in gaining optimal health. EPA and DHA and to a much lesser extent, GLA are all extremely important in obtaining a healthy fat ratio.Chia seeds contain 32 to 39 percent oil, and this oil has the highest natural percentage of alpha-linolenic acid or omega 3 – up to 64 percent. The oil also contains omega 6 essential fatty acids, and has an omega 3 to omega 6 ratio of 3:2. Chia seeds are also rich in long-chain triglycerides which help to maintain the proper wall flexibility of the cells and also restore the correct cholesterol to triglycerides ratio. The omega 3 found in chia seeds is converted by the body into DHA and EPA fatty acids – the same kinds that are found in fish oil.
Essential fatty acids are vital in the body, helping muscles to recover after exercise or other physical exertion. They also help to increase the metabolism, thus helping in fat burning and weight loss. Essential fatty acids also play a part in generating the electrical currents that make the heart beat correctly. As well, they govern food absorption, mental health, and the process of oxidation and growth.
This ^^^^Besides all the controversial "science" behind it, spwn's diet doesn't seem that weird to me. A lot of protein, a lot of veges, and cut down on carbs and processed food. Sounds a lot like 90% of standard diets.
And you can't really argue with the results - he's lost weight and feels a lot better.
