How To Fix Health Problems With Food

“Start with the Feb 2009 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine -- All four of the diet plans used in that study were far less restrictive than vegan in terms of choices.   Read the section on Adherance which shows the deterioration after 2 years of effort by the subjects as well as the editoral by Dr. Katan.  tried to post link but not sure huffpost will let me -- they cite HUNDREDS of studies of failed restrictive diets in this landmark study.  But if you want more email me at eetfit@gmail.com and I can send you as many as you like.  Not sure too many are vegan specific -- but when you see the failure rates on less challenging diets, you can easily understand why you don't find too many vegan specific studies.Comparison of Weight-Loss Diets http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa0804748with Different Compositions of Fat ”

“Actually the studies are more than clear -- within 2-5 years of going vegan MOST (as in nearly ALL) people will:

1) Weigh more than when they started
2) Be in worse health than when they started.

It may have worked for you for longer and you can be contratulated for that -- But out here in the real world we need solutions that EVERYONE can stay with. It sounds great on paper to restrict your diet to things that can make you healthy -- statistically only 1 in 30000 can do it -- based on extensive, overwhelming scientific research (100's of studies available upon request).

So you might want to work a bit harder on this question before you go to the next one :-)

“First off, what's your water intake look like -- as the article above says that's a great way to flush out salt which may be what's creating the excess salt taste in your food. On the other hand, it's possible you are eating or are out of balance with potassium. Do you take any supplements or eat a lot of banana's tomatoes mushrooms or other source of potassium (multivitamin?). It's possible you are having problems with efficiency in your cell's Nacl pump. If you don't have high blood pressure or other signs of excess salt currently, then hopefully it's something you can rectify with simple dietary or exercise adjustments (including timing)

“Why do the media and weight loss experts continue to feed lies to the public?? Don't you realize this sort of "selective information" sharing HURTS peoples efforts to lose weight and become fit long term? What do I mean? I cannot find this entire study but this is directly from The Hutchinson Cancer Research Center News Release:

"At the end of the study, participants in both arms (of study) lost an average of 10 percent of their starting weight, which was the goal of the intervention."

This means that the diet measures that worked early in the study STOPPED WORKING by the end of the trial--RESULT? The SAME "Check Mark From Hell Pattern" of fast weight loss followed by steady 100% weight regain--whether you kept a food journal, ate lunch out or NOT. The NEJM said in 2009 no more trials are needed to prove these burdensome steps DON'T WORK for long term weight loss! PLEASE tell the whole story and stop claiming measures like counting calories, required exercise, predefined portion control, etc work when there is NO evidence of working for over 2-5 years ANYWHERE. At least do the right thing and tell readers that PER THE RESEARCH there is a 100% chance you will regain ALL lost weight over time if you follow these approaches. People won't listen to steps that can work until experts stop saying steps that are proven failures work!!!

“There's more to it but The Eating and Exercise Timing (EET) Fitness Plan calls what you are describing here EET Metabolic Timing. Plus EET has uncovered 4 more types of timing that prove to be effective for weight loss and fitness and we've already helped 100's use TIMING to achieve sustainable results and significant health improvements (like for diabetics, blood pressure and cholesterol) without calorie counting for over 4 years now-so these discoveries are far from new--studies are just starting to prove them out!

Sooner or later the truth will come out that studies prove restrictive diets requiring calorie counting and/or exercise lead to weight GAIN over 5 years and it's great to see science continuing to prove that TIMING is everything when it comes to LOSING weight!

“What a horribly misleading poll. You see data on what people try all the time because they can't show you the data on HOW MANY SUCCEED LONG TERM --if you knew how few can actually stay on a deprivation or restrictive diet of ANY kind it would change your life. See The New England Journal of Medicine Feb 2009 weight loss study and especially the editorial by Dr. Martijn Katan for the irrefutable data and expert's opinions on this issue.

First understand this. You do not successfully lose weight unless you can keep it off. This single thought is what is preventing millions of people from solving their weight loss problems. They are misled into believing that just because some weight comes off, the diet works, even though studies show that restrictive diets have a nearly ZERO percent success rate over 5 years.

People simply need to ask the question--how long do I want to keep weight off after I lose it? If they answer more than 2 years then all the research is clear--you are far more likely to GAIN weight over 2-5 years with any calorie restriction or exercise intensive diet and exercise plan.

There are better answers folks--but you gotta stop trying the same failed plans over and over first!

“Speaking of overwhelming evidence: Skinny people have or will have many many health problems too. Skinny people who obsess about their weight have the worst of health problems: eating disorders--far more dangerous and fatal than obesity, plus they destroy quality of life. There is also a LOT of evidence that most levels of obesity don't have worse health or mortality than those with normal BMIs. P.S.

“Fair enough, but don't you think proponents of these plans have an obligation to disclose that there is an overwhelming body of scientific evidence  that no one can stay with the plans they are recommending?  Their peer reviewed studies are almost always based on a year or less time frame.  Some in fact include follow up adherance information that confirms no one can benefit long term from their plan designs, which means folks end up weighing more and in worse health.  So the science can be right for a year or less - no one disputes that.  But--if you define the timeframe as how long people would actually like to benefit from the plan they are considering the science proves these plans are completely ineffective.    I think the public would view these plans very differently if they knew these scientific facts (which have been confirmed 100% of the time) about adherance because if you can't adhere science says you will end up worse (sometimes far worse, both physically and psychologically) for having tried.”

“I truly admire your satisfaction with your plan - I personally could never do what you do, it's sacrificing a lot of amazing food (imho).

I do want to point out that I have clients and know of many other vegans who are VERY overweight so vegan is absolutely not a cure for obesity, that much is certain -- not so sure about the diabetes part either as vegans tend to eat far more carbs than omnivores (EET works with 100's of diabetic clients including a Dr. supervised trial we did in Portland Oregon in 2011, so we have some experience to speak on that subject as well)

Again, if vegan works for you and provides results, that is truly great -- EET is searching for answers that can work for everyone, and vegan has many restrictions which makes it a guaranteed failure over a population.

On the other hand, a vast majority of the population can schedule and do a pretty good job of making appointments on TIME -- in other words, we can MANAGE our time long term for the most part and stay with a work schedule, etc., so we feel learning how to use timing for your eating and exercise (based on the science of nutritent timing) long term is a very viable alternative and we have produced better results than any other diet we know of (though there is still plenty of room for improvement and we're working on it! :-).”

“We should all "love our neighbors as we love ourselves" and "turn the other cheek". Those utopian ideals SHOULD make for a better world but zealots trying to enforce them cause more harm than good. Similarly, BASED ON THE SCIENCE of people not being able to sustain insane restrictive diets is exactly as likely to happen as a population as what the good Ph.D. is recommending in this article. These sorts of "you should live this way" concepts create great guilt and are a major cause of the obesity and health crisis, not a solution. I paraphrase Dr. Marjtin Katan Obesity EXPERT who spent his entire career studying these matters: "Restricting diets in any way was in the process of completely reversing in this 2 year study of the most MOTIVATED,coached and supervised dieters - we don't need another diet study, we need a new paradigm" (see his editorial to the Feb 2009 NEJM study for more info from someone who knows far more than you or I (or Dr. Campbell does for that matter).

There are better, more realistic ways to accomplish weight loss, fitness and quality of life without food restrictions of any sort. The evidence is building (going on 5 years now) and the studies are supporting a completely balanced approach that restricts nothing (except an awareness of your eating and exercise TIMING)

“That's why I'm another vegan who gorges on the most incredible array of colorful and delicious food that has ever been put in front of a human being. Screw restrictiveness. I tried for years being an omnivore who would eat without restriction -- didn't work out so well. Then I tried it with "moderation" -- didn't work out so well. I wasn't alone. Most omnivores are overweight, and will develop diabetes. Most will die of heart disease, if cancer doesn't get them first.

Now I stuff my face with astonishing food jam packed full of cholesterol lowering fiber (none in animal products) and cancer fighting antioxidants (none in animal products). I'm never going back to living with restrictions where I have to wonder how much saturated fat (mostly in animal products) and cholesterol (only in animal products) I've eaten today, and whether I have to forego desert.

Sugar consumption and human cancer in sites other than the digestive tract.
Burley VJ. Source Nuffield Institute for Health, University of Leeds, UK.

"For breast cancer, the data on international per capita sugar intakes suggest a consistent positive correlation with breast cancer mortality rates. HOWEVER, this relationship is not consistent in within-country ecological studies or in case-control studies, in which sugar intakes have been assessed as mono- and disaccharides or as sucrose. There is some suggestion of a weak increase in risk of breast cancer with high consumption of sucrose-containing foods, such as cakes and biscuits. However, these foods provide a range of other nutrients, particularly fat, which may also be implicated in the development of breast cancer, and further studies specifically designed to address this area are required. It is apparent that there is insufficient evidence to conclude whether sugar has a role in cancer at any site."”

“Also keep in mind, Jon, that my study focused specifically on intake of these foods during the breast development stage (childhood/adolescence) and later breast disease. Many of the 69 studies cited in this 1998 article examined ADULT dietary habits with ADULT onset cancers.... This is the entire premise of my campaign, that we need to learn more about the relationship between intakes and exposures during the growth years and later cancer risk. I contend that dietary habits during the growing years which appear to be protective may not necessarily be the same as those during adulthood. I have provided my references in your previous post.

Can you please share your sources for this quote? I have done a lot of research and cannot find any meaningful direct links to cancer from most if not all of these foods and would greatly appreciate some specific resources to study.

“You don't need a study to prove that certain foods/tastes/ingredients trigger physical cravings and psychological turmoil for some people.

By completely eliminating them, cold turkey, from my diet -- which meant eliminated pretty much all processed/packaged foods, baked goods, pasta and "snack foods" -- I was able to lose 65 lbs and have kept it off for over four years, kill my cravings/binge cycles, and eliminate all signs of my metabolic syndrome. Moderation does not work for people like me whose bodies (and brains) flip out at the introduction of sugars. There's a big element of willpower/self discipline (those two dirty words that no one wants to use anymore) required, and meaningful, vigorous, non-negotiable daily exercise as well.

But, assuminig genetics could play a role, would you think the best solution for any alcoholic would be to cut them off from the alcohol of their choice completely while telling them it's okay to drink other types of alcohol? That's exactly what diet experts are telling people to do with food. We can help alcoholics change their behavior by removing the alcohol from their beverages. All foods have harmful and helpful elements in them (at different times) and therefore you would have to have dieters give up ALL foods to be comparable to alcoholic treatments. Point is -- people should be taught to manage ALL foods in a way they can love, not told some are clean all the time (grains and other high carb foods at night for diabetics for example-- very harmful!) and some are not clean or harmful in every circumstance (Refined sugar proven more effective for protein uptake than ANY other nutrient right after exercise for example) because it's simply untrue.”

“Posts like this can do nothing but make people feel like they are always eating RIGHT or WRONG. To call something a "not so healthy" indulgence almost guarantees you will be making people feel guilty for eating it. Making people feel guilty for food choices creates far more weight GAIN over time than any food possibly good (because of the yo-yo dieting guilt and feelings of failure create). No one should need certain times of year to find ways to eat in a fashion that can create weight loss, fitness and improved health, just as no one should deprive themselves of eating decadent foods with family and friends without guilt during holiday or vacations times. If you are serious about "no taboos" as you state in your post, start by taking the taboo off of indulgences by calling them "unhealthy"--they're working quite well for your mental and physical and emotional health in YOUR plan, wouldn't you say? People should feel free to have "healthy indulgences" of the foods they love as part of a balanced diet REGULARLY, and the diet industry should stop encouraging the concept of "eating clean" which implies that if you eat something arbitrarily judged "unhealthy" you're eating "dirty". Who can possibly stay on a diet that punishes you with being "dirty" or cheating every time you "go off" of it? Research and a simple look around at the growing obesity nightmare proves NO ONE CAN.

“Here's something that's not conjecture and theory. In a "study of studies" that reviewed 30 years of clinical diet trials, the average weight loss for subjects who tried to manage a caloric deficit diet or a very low caloric deficit diet over 5 years was a 2 lb weight GAIN.

Just because you can scientifically create a caloric deficit on any given day or even week does not mean it is a scientifically proven method for weight loss over a longer term . The same science you are relying to to make your definitive statements about how energy works in the body over any given day also shows just as conclusively that behavioral factors MUST be considered over a longer period of time. EET summarized over 100 studies to prove this point that you can find here: .http://tiny.cc/14bwfw We welcome anyone to show us ONE study that proves caloric deficit dieting can work for over 5 years for any statistically sigificant number of people

And, for the record, no studies support that restricting food groups is sustainable for over 2-5 years either --sorry "forks over knives", atkins and paleo fans -- science says all your short term success stories will be heavier and less healthy down the road just like the dieters depriving themselves limiting calories and requiring endless (and sometimes dangerous exercise).

We do not need another diet trial; we need a change of paradigm. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMe0810291

Let's let the education begin by educating the diet and exercise experts -- if something doesn't work long term on an issue that needs to be controlled for life like weight loss and fitness--it does not work at all. This notion is proven by SCIENCE so let's start there before we start educating people on the completely proven failed model that requires deprivation and restriction for weight loss and fitness.

The Last Diet You Will Ever Need

“Why is it that we believe we can feed our bodies industrial, nutrient-depleted food-like substances empty of life and be healthy? How did we come to believe that food industry chemicals and processing could replace nature-made foods?

We believe this because IT IS POSSIBLE. And when you can build all the foods you love into your diet and remain healthy it can then be SUSTANED. Period. Oh and your recommendations have absolutely NO evidence in any research or studies that they can be sustained for 2-5 years by which time subjects in research studies are generally heavier and less healthy than when they started your "healthy eating" strategies. Just because they create weight loss and improve health markers in the short term does NOT mean they work when we're after LONG TERM HEALTH AND WEIGHT LOSS.”

“When you type a word in all caps for emphasis -- you know, so it will stand out -- it's a really good idea to make sure the word is spelled correctly. You post will still be ludicrous, but at least people won't think you're a bad speller.”

“We're five years into the Cook for Good project using all real, unprocessed food cooked from scratch (and mostly organic food, too). I've effortlessly stayed around the middle of the healthy BMI range after losing 15 pounds to start and my husband now weighs what he did when we got married nearly 24 years ago. We feel great, too.”

“Are you serious? Are you actually claiming it is possible to stay just as healthy on a mostly non-real (processed) food diet as it is on nature-made foods?”

Breakfast: The Best Way to Start the Day

Commented Jan 20, 2012 at 10:53:10 in Healthy Living

“The conventional wisdom of eating a balanced breakfast is harming people's health, causing weight GAIN and is not metabolically sound. We work with hundreds of people and specialize in working with diabetics. EET produces consistent improved weight loss and health results using timing concepts nearly the complete OPPOSITE of almost every point made in this post. Don't starve yourself at wake up, but the food choices you make are critical. A "Bran Muffin" for breakfast is a nearly guaranteed recipe for weight gain, as are most fruits, and a bagel might be the worst food at that time of day of all -- not to mention the high fat "schmear" you'll put on it!!

Here's a study that you didn't mention that tells you all you need to know about the value of eating a "healthy breakfast". "Training in the fasted state improves glucose tolerance during fat-rich diet" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20837645. In this study, those who delayed their breakfast had less weight gain (almost NONE vs 3 lbs for those who ate breakfast) had better fat loss and less insulin resistance, even with a high fat high calorie diet. Interestingly, we've found you don't even need to exercise at wake up to achieve these benefits!

Just look around to see where advice like balanced breakfast is getting us -- fatter and fatter and less healthy, and we have the results to prove that timing your morning eating produces far more favorable results -- ESPECIALLY FOR DIABETICS!.”

“I disagree that eating a "balnaced breakfast is making us fatter and fatter".

I woud name over processed food (almost anything that comes in a carboard box), soda and soft drinks as much bigger culprits for this unhealthy trend.”

“The only way I lost weight, and kept it off, was to throw out the "wisdom" and listen to my own by having nothing but 2 cups coffee and maybe a few almonds, maybe a half piece of toast, maybe a few bites of yogurt. I found that morning was the one time I had control over my appetite and was extra busy, but I made sure that when I really felt hunger I'd pop a bite in my mouth, preferably protein. At lunch I'd make a point not to make up for lost time, same with dinner, and then come evening, when I had the least self control, I still enjoyed my favorite healthy munchies.
There is just a lot we don't know though experts keep telling us. We have more wisdom than we think.”

“I think what a person eats for breakfast is very important. Sure if you have a white flour bagel with schmear or a bran muffin that is probably more nutritionally similar to a cupcake than anything else, you're probably not doing yourself any favors. There is so much junk in the grocery stores that people mistakenly buy thinking it's healthy when it really isn't. That's a major problem that makes it more difficult for people to make healthy choices.”
