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

Are you consuming linseed oil?
AKA flax seeds or flax seed oil?

If so, you need to read this...

Linseed oil, also known as flaxseed oil, is a colourless to yellowish oil obtained from the dried, ripened seeds of the flax plant. The oil is obtained by pressing, sometimes followed by solvent extraction. Linseed oil is a drying oil, meaning it can polymerize into a solid form.

The primary use of linseed oil is to be used as a wood varnish or a binder in paints. Linseed oil works well for these products because of its HIGH level of unsaturated fat content. Unsaturated fats are very susceptible to oxygen, which allows them to work great as drying agents and helps the paint stay rigid. This is why paint cans must stay air tight and kept in dark, cool places. If these oils are exposed to air, the paint will dry and become rigid...

Hmmmm.

So linseed/flax oils oxidize when exposed to heat and air?

Yep!

Have you ever noticed these oils can only be purchased in dark containers, stored in the refrigerator? Do you ever wonder what happens when you put them in your warm, oxygen rich body???

These oils become rancid when exposed to oxygen and heat, it does not matter if they are in a paint can or in your body. Since these oils are unsaturated, hydrogen atoms have been removed, making them more susceptible to free radicals and oxidative damage.

So, who is up of a Tablespoon of flax seed oil, in their Kale smoothy?! Blek!!

When you are done choking your smoothy down, you can use the rest of the flax oil to varnish the kitchen table!
