Why Eating Like a “Celebrity” Will Ruin Your Metabolism

Why eating like a “celebrity” will ruin your metabolism There was a time in my life, many, many years ago, that I used to buy into “celebrity” diets.  I’d pick up the current People or Us magazine and read how Oprah or some other celebrity had lost extreme amounts of weight–quickly.   The celebrity would claim that all they had to do was eat pre-packaged food, or consume a liquid-only diet, or eat a low calorie diet and/or take a magic supplement to drop pounds rapidly.  I would see the before and after pictures and think, “Wow, that diet really worked, look how fast they lost weight, and see how good they looked.”. Both the celebrity and I would assume the diet really worked! What you didn’t see or hear about was how the celebrity, three months later, was struggling to keep off the weight.  Then within the next 6 months to 2 years, the same celebrity would show up in People or Us magazine with all the weight back on confessing they had no will power and they had failed, once again, at keeping their weight down.  Oprah, it’s not you fault!!! How many of you have seen these headlines in a magazine, TV show, on the Internet or one of the other million of places you are marketed to? *Learn how insert celebrity name here lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. *Or learn how insert celebrity name here lost her baby weight in 60 days. *Or learn how insert celebrity name here got red-carpet ready. The story above and all of these statements NOW irritate the crap out... read more

The importance of calcium...

"Ninety-nine percent of calcium is stored in the skeletal system (the bones are referred to as calcium banks). The other 1 percent is located in the soft tissue and blood. Every day there is a transfer of calcium among the bones, cells, and blood. Thus, since we do not make our own calcium within the body, a constant intake of dietary calcium is needed. Without proper intake, the body will pull calcium from our calcium banks (bones) and use it for cellular function. This is one big reason why we need to be ingesting an adequate level of calcium every day.

Calcium is needed for bone and teeth structure, blood clotting, nerve and cell function, muscular contraction, regulating the heartbeat, and lowering blood pressure by down-regulating parathyroid hormone (PTH). Dairy, along with bone broth, are your best sources of calcium.
Milk and other dairy products have a high calcium-to- phosphorus ratio. The ratio of calcium to phosphorus in food is very important for bone health. Phosphorus, an important mineral for bone development, in excess can lead to displacing calcium, which will lead to an increase in parathyroid hormone (PTH). Parathyroid hormone is released from the parathyroid gland when blood calcium levels are low

Due to all its functions, calcium in the blood is closely monitored. If a person has not ingested sufficient amounts of calcium or too much phosphorus, and the calcium blood levels get too low, parathyroid hormone (PTH) increases and tells the body to absorb more calcium, primarily by pulling calcium from the bones. Chronically high levels of PTH, among other things, will lead to bone breakdown, which will eventually lead to osteoporosis and increased aging. Dairy, with its high calcium and mineral content, helps prevent PTH from rising, decreasing bone breakdown."

Bottom line: Consume dairy, especially milk--if you tolerate it. If you can't tolerate it--attempt to fix your gut, so you can.
