Carbohydrates Why They Can Be Your Diet Enemy...
Carbohydrates come in two basic forms: complex and simple. Simple carbs are one, two, or at most three units of sugar linked together in single
molecules. Complex carbs are hundreds or thousands of sugar units linked together in single molecules. Simple sugars are easily identified by their
taste: sweet. Complex carbs, such as potatoes, are pleasant to the taste buds, but not sweet.
There are two groups of complex carbs: high fiber and low fiber. High-fiber, complex carbs are not digestible, at least not by human beings, because
we do not have the enzyme to do the job. Cows have that enzyme; that is why they can get calories out of grass, and we cannot. The main stuff in
high-fiber, complex carbs which is indigestible by humans is called "cellulose."
High-fiber (high-cellulose) vegetable foods are the healthiest choices for human nutrition, and intake of these foods is associated with lowered
incidences of hypertension, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, etc. Examples are lettuce and broccoli. Examples of low-fiber, complex carbs are banana,
tomato, squash and all cereals and grains (therefore bread and pasta), potatoes and rice.
It matters not if a carb is simple or complex. After digestion, it appears in the circulatory system in the simple form, as glucose, on its way to the cells
where it is used for energy. To be transformed into simple sugars, complex carbs must be digested by the enzyme amylase. Amylase is secreted by
the salivary glands, which empty into the mouth, and by the pancreas, which empties into the head of the duodenum.
Simple sugars and low-fiber, complex carbs represent a threat to health when they are consumed in inappropriate amounts ... Processing of plant
food strips away its fiber and/or vitamin content. A simple example of processing is cutting an orange in two pieces, pressing the juice into a glass
and discarding the fiber.
While it is true that fiber is an important part of your diet, even necessary to protect you from some diseases, carbohydrates themselves are not
necessary. There are "essential" fatty acids and "essential" amino acids (from protein), however there are no known essential carbohydrates.
Most of our carbohydrates come from cereals and grains, both products of the agricultural revolution. Our bodies are not genetically designed to
thrive on large amounts of these fiberless complex carbs. With the popularity of cereal- and grain-based "health diets," carbohydrate metabolism has
been upset in approximately 3/4 of the population which simply cannot handle this large load of carbs. Increased insulin output from the pancreas,
over the years, results in hyperinsulinism, insulin resistance and the resulting diseases mentioned above: hypertension, dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis
and heart disease.
Complex carbs with lots of fiber should be consumed in proper proportion for maximum health and vitality. Complex carbs with lots of fiber are rich
sources of necessary vitamins and minerals as well as enzymes when in the raw state. The problem happens when carbohydrates are altered by
processes which provide empty calories stripped of much of their original food value.
... The most healthy form of sugar is the complex carbohydrates present in high-fiber vegetables; however, it is certainly acceptable to spice up your
diet in moderation with simple sugars in the form of whole fruits ... Eat your fruits, do not juice them and drink them, unless you are on a juice fast ...
Eating the whole fruit results in the inclusion of natural fiber, which allows proper absorption of sugars. If you must have juice, dilute it with twice the
recommended amount of water, so as to get the taste without overdosing on simple sugars.
The Result of Excess Carbohydrate Intake
... The high-carbohydrate diet which is now so popular causes the pancreas to produce large amounts of insulin ... Because insulin's action is to drive
glucose into the cells, this results in chronic hyperglycemia, also called "high blood sugar." A large portion of this sugar is stored as fat resulting in
obesity. Excess insulin also causes hypertension and helps initiate the sequence of events in the arterial wall which leads to atherosclerosis and
Adult onset diabetes is known to be greatly benefited by the adoption of a low carbohydrate diet, moderate in fat, which stresses the importance of a
regular intake of sufficient protein. You will not hear this advice from the American Diabetes Association, (or from most doctors) since they are still
operating on the research as it was twenty years ago.
... Excess fats damage the immune system through irradiation by free radicals during peroxidation of fats. Excess carbohydrates upset the hormonal
system mentioned above (known as the "eicosanoids") and results in an imbalance favoring the type of eicosanoid (known as "prostaglandins E-2" or
"PGE-2") which also suppresses the immune system. Thus obesity is associated with a higher incidence of infection.

THE GROTTO EXPLAINS.....the Term "ED-anorectic"
In contrast to the description of proactive, volitional anorexia as a lifestyle encompassed by the term pro-ana, the Grotto is coining a new phrase:
ED-anorexia, obviously, refers to anorexia as a disease or disorder, specifically an eating disorder (ED). The ED-anorexic, or ED-anorectic, is one who
perceives herself to be suffering from an affliction which causes compulsive thoughts and behaviors to which she must succumb or suffer.
The difference should be obvious here. The pro-ana has made a choice, and retains control of her life and choices. The ED-anorectic perceives her life to be
spinning out of control, as her "choices" have little to do with volition and mainly to do with bowing to internal oppressions.
Note carefully my use of the word "perceive". The nature of volition (choice) is such that no one can truly be said to do anything without exercising it.
However, because of our human tendency to place ourselves in denial of culpability, our willingness to believe ourselves subject to external controls rather
than internal ones, and the fact that decisions can be made in a split-second before we are aware of ourselves making them, such as under duress or in
the throes of powerful emotions, we often perceive ourselves as acting upon something other than the execution of our own volition. This phenomenon has
been joked about with the phrase, "the devil made me do it!" Thus we can perceive ourselves to be subject to something other than our own choices, when
strictly speaking, in reality, since only we live inside ourselves and only our brains work our bodies, it is patently impossible for anything other than
ourselves to be in control of ourselves, whether we govern ourselves well or do so deplorably poorly.
This flaw in our perception can be trained out, however. The first step toward doing so involves a corrective shift in perspective or point of view on the
subject, so that we know and we state that we have acted upon our own decisions, even (and especially) when the moment of making them glided past our
awareness. Our failure to take note of having made a decision does not constitute the lack of having made one. The simple fact remains that in everything
we do, we are executing our choices. There is no denying that circumstances, surroundings, emotional tides, desires, urges, conflicts, threats, ultimatums,
and anticipated consequences and repercussions can and do influence our decisions. However these, in themselves, have no power to actually make
those decisions for us. We make them ourselves. Even were someone to kill me for doing X, and spare me if I did Y, it is still my decision to do X. No one
forces me to abandon the risk of the consequences and choose X over Y, except my own self. The Source The grotto9/2010 eating clean diet what it is and

On THE GROTTO'S Use of the Term "Pro-Ana"
By the term "pro-ana," I do not merely indicate being an advocate of anorectic
praxis (practice), though certainly that is part of it. "Pro" can also be short for
proactive, which indicates taking the initiative of action from within oneself, by
choice, as opposed to reactive which indicates acting only when pushed to do
so in response to some external event or stimulus.
"Pro-ana" thus becomes short for proactive, volitional anorexia. It refers to
actively embracing the concept of anorexia as a lifestyle choice rather than an
illness. By the word "choice" we indicate the active agency of volition, the seat
of government in the human mind, the power of decision-making or of will. We
are not "ED sufferers" (though some of us at times may use the term "ED" in a
self-referential fashion for convenience) but persons who have chosen
anorectic praxis (practice) as a lifestyle of our own free wills. The core praxis
of anorexia involves control over oneself: denial of appetite, restriction of food
intake, discipline in exercise, etc. and we recognize it would be a joke to
suggest mastering these skills could be the product of anything other than the
continual, diligent execution of volition.
A true "pro-ana" is not a "victim" in any sense. Some of us may be "survivors"
of various traumas and unpleasantries in our lives, from which our endurance
and survival have contributed to finding our way to this path. Beyond this,
however, we are more than mere "survivors." We are "thrivers!" We thrive
upon challenge, upon competition, upon the raw stimulation of life, keenness
of our senses, strength and artistry in our bodies, alertness and clarity in our
minds. We thrive upon the fact that while all religions, philosophies, ideologies
upon the earth extol the virtues of self-control and self-government, our path
alone holds the key to unlock the most secret chambers of these mysteries in
something so seemingly simple as an empty plate, in something so seemingly
shallow as a desire to be thin.
Outsiders may see only a bleak and dreary exterior, a drudgery of
calorie-counting, grueling calesthenics, and pleasure-deprivation. Those of us
who have braved that unappealing exterior and crossed the threshhold have
found much, much more. Hopefully these pages, those to which they link, and
my writings elsewhere, can give the reader some glimpse of that palace of
treasure which lies within the lanugo pearl. Yet in the end, one must enter to
see the glory, and one must drink to be reborn.

Ultimate Key, Solid Foundation, and Secret Weapon!
There is probably no single more vital change one can make in one's eating habits than to
establish a lifestyle of proper portion control. It is the ultimate key to success and the foundation of
every secret weapon against gorging, binging, and packing on the pounds. Besides, nothing says
control and perfection like the ability to consume one single actual serving in the company of those
indulging in gluttonous "supersized" meals and excessively overpiled plates. Nothing tastes of
success like it, either.
To make portion control a snap, think ...
The right portion ... Is about the size of ...
3 oz. of meat or poultry A cassette tape
3 oz. of grilled fish Your checkbook
½ cup of pasta or rice An ice cream scoop
1 oz. of cheese 4 stacked dice
1 cup fresh greens A tennis ball
1 oz. of pretzels or other snack foods A large handful
1 medium fruit or a small potato Your computer mouse
1 teaspoon of butter or margarine A Scrabble tile
1 ounce of bread or 1 small roll A Yo-Yo
Today’s urban warriors are much the same. Ginseng, caffeine and Eastern medicine are still being utilized.
Now as it was then, you are no where without the basics namely sleep, smart eating and exercise. First aim for at the minimum
6hours of sleep a night, for some a brief nap may lead to greater alertness and productivity.
Pack in energy-promoting foods. The definition of energy is calories so make them count. Veggies provide fiber, vitamins and
nutrients. Nutrition bars are a great source as well ...
Caffeine is America’s most popular drug some 85% of Americans drink coffee or some type of caffeinated product. Americans
usually are not the healthiest of the planets people there are better choices to make. South Central America they use a product
called Yerba Mate and Guarana. West Africa the caffeine choice is kola nut and leaf.
Caffeine works by stimulating the nervous system to speed up the heart rate, raise blood pressure and rev up the metabolism
(helping the body lose weight.) It also heightens alertness and concentration...
The facts about "Carb" depleting You cannot completely delete "carbs" from your life. You need them to keep energy and
focused. Their are many diets and products on the market today that can confuse anyone. Even someone who actually knows!
I measure myself everyday to see where I am at. I weigh myself everyday. I read all the diet information I can get my hands on
and I check my body fat .
I concentrate on my thinspiration and keep motivated. I stand on my head for ten minutes a day and do 50 push ups and 60 sit
ups everyday without fail!!
This is something not proven but does seem to work for all who try it. I wear magnetic rings on different fingers for different
results. This is something that works for me. I wear to magnetic rings on both of my pinky fingers when I sleep and I do have a
magnetic mattress pad this is supposed to prevent all types of illness and eliminate swelling, not to mention keep you looking
I keep a food journal, this is a proven weight management tool everyone should try.
I exercise everyday.I have a part time job as a "floater" in a gym. A "floater" is someone who just comes in to teach and leaves.
It is great because I work out for free, and I have to because it is my job. I learned that if you gain muscle you lose more weight
because your body continues to burn more fat. I sleep at least 6 hours a night and drink plenty of water. To keep my skin
healthy at bedtime I massage pure almond oil into the areas I want firmer I also use some moisturizing products to really
enhance the skin, and I take one aloe vera capsule two times a day to avoid looking older or you can drink it for quicker
results... Aloe juice.
I take a Cayenne supplement to boost my metabolism.I take a multi-vitamin and I drink a pro-biotic to avoid any yeast. Yeast can
make you stop losing weight even in starvation mode.
When you don't eat very much your metabolism can slow down and you stop losing weight. Because heavy spices bother my
stomach I take a supplement. It is preferable to actually eat the spices. I use apple cider vinager on my salads and in a tincture
to help better my digestion and quicken my weight loss.
I suggest that everyone who wants to lose weight and look great, do some of the same. Try some of the diets on my site and
recipes. Follow the tips. Stay focused!!
Buy yourself all the tools you need to attain your goals.
With any lifestyle it takes investment. The good thing about this change in lifestyle is that you save money on food and spend
your money on a lifetime of self satisfaction.
Pick out a great measuring tape maybe an electric one and body fat counter. Always have an accurate Scale buy a diet book
that has foods in it that you like. I
I sell a lot of my favorite thinspo products (click here) few sites are dedicated to the aspects of calorie restricting lifestyles now
I have a section for Cellulite,
Fasting Products and my own line of Hydroxy ..... ya know only the best quick weight loss products and stuff!
Check out my sample pack of products that all work together.... click here..
HYDROX PRODUCTS AND WHY THEY WORK:
These super diet pills make weight come off fast. They create a thermogenasis effect in the body causing it to burn fat faster by
using the bodies heat. This also causes the body to remove excess water from the body. Most of these products I have tried
and lost weight but not as much as I had heard I could... so I investigated the situation and found the right mixture of all of the
extracts and have started my own product line.
To find out more please click here.
Body cleansers work because they clean the body of the toxins it is holding. If the body is holding to many toxins it does not
lose weight rapidly or work efficiently. I am sure you have heard about all the new teas and cleansers. They do work. You need
to find one that works for your needs.
