Food: Darkness or Light?

Like in most things, there are different energies in the food we eat.

For example, most vegetable oils can be classified as Omega 6 oils (soy, canola, safflower, corn, peanut, and blended). Omega 6 oils are a root cause of inflammation in our bodies. What we should be using is olive, coconut, avocado, and macadamia oil; these are Omega 3 oil and do not cause inflammation. Other great Omega 3 oils are butter/cream, lard, and tallow; animal fats. Most fried food we get from restaurants is cooked in Omega 6 oils or blends; tastes great, but wrong energy. Omega 6 oils tend to be less expensive and most of us do not realize how bad these are.  We tend to call these “vegetable” oils, but they are really seed oils.

Many of us have been exposed to Glyphosates; it is called Round-Up and is a herbicide. In the Vietnam War, it was called Agent Orange. My exposure to it caused my Type II Diabetes and other issues. It took 40 years for some of these issues to be visible. I mention this as it is used extensively on soy, wheat, corn, peanuts, and others. It too is a root cause of inflammation and should be avoided. Yes, tofu and bread/flour are full of it. Just think, how many foods/drinks have high-fructose corn syrup; it too is loaded with Glyphosates; same for corn/tortilla chips.

Anything that causes inflammation is food on the Dark Side. Think about it, inflammation starts out as red and moves toward infection. Modern medicine calls out inflammation as the root cause of most diseases.

What about sugar? Or anything that produces glucose in our bodies? We all know about sugar; it is in everything. It gets turned into glucose immediately and gives us that sugar high that only lasts for an hour or two. What about eating bread, crackers or cookies? Wheat gets turned into glucose in about 20 minutes. What about other starches like potatoes and rice? Yes, they get turned into glucose quickly as well (about 30 minutes).

Wait a second, are you saying that glucose is on the Dark Side? Yes. What is diabetes? Generally, it can be described as a condition of insulin resistance in our cells. Some people are calling Alzheimer’s Diabetes Type III or insulin resistance by brain cells. When we eat carbs (sugar), our bodies must produce insulin to get our cells to process the glucose. Our cells will not “eat” the glucose without the added insulin.

But……., many of us live on a mostly carbohydrate diet. Haven’t we been told that we should be eating a low-fat, high-carb diet? Yes, that too came from the Dark Side; we are having an epidemic of diabetes as a result.

Our bodies are like hybrid cars; we can burn glucose as fuel, but can also burn fat (ketones). This is what the Keto Diet is all about. Our brains operate entirely on ketones (when it can get them). Mother’s milk is full of ketones (as is heavy cream/butter and Omega 3 oils/fats). When you switch to ketones as the primary fuel, you do not need to snack (can go hours without feeling hungry). Long-distance runners have all switched.

I have been on a strict Keto diet for four years. Some would call it Super Keto as everything we eat is organic or humane. We also take supplements like Berberine (better than Metformine with no side effects). What has happened is that my body has shifted to looking for ketones (fat) as its primary fuel source (over Glucose).

Yes, we cheat and eat small amounts of wheat, potatoes, and rice once a week or ten days. We love almond croissants that are also full of butter. Got to have a burger and fries once in a while. When we go out to eat, it is easy to get double veggies instead of starch, but on cheat days, we eat everything and even deserts.

Eating a diet that is 70% fat (ketones), 25% protein, and only 5% carbs is the goal for all of us wanting to eat a diet on the Light Side. I drink heavy cream in my coffee all the time; it is wonderful. We also eat a lot of avocados which are full of fat. We use lots of butter/olive/coconut oil. We fill up on double portions of low-carb vegetables (broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, spinach, peppers, onions, garlic, and mushrooms). The 5% carbs all come from vegetables; no bread, potatoes, or rice (starches). I am very healthy both mentally and physically as a result.

For any of you who have neurological issues, your brain/nervous system may be having insulin resistance issues, especially if you already have diabetes. Google C-8 oil. Coconut oil can be formed into several components; C-8 is a colorless, odorless, tasteless coconut derivative that is pure externally produced ketones. It can be added to coffee, tea, or hot chocolate easily. Look up Shearbrook Institute in Canada; they have been curing Alzheimer’s using the Keto diet and C-8 oil. They do brain scans before and after treatments and people in their 70s with full-blown Alzheimer’s can get back to 55-year-old without any sign.

Ketones are on the right track or Light Side. Glucose is on the wrong track. Please reduce your Glucose intake. Alternatives to sugar include Monk Fruit, Stevia, and various alcohol sweeteners that do not spike the insulin. 400 years ago, we did not know what sugar was. Our ancestors cooked with butter, lard, and tallow (and olive oil). They were healthier. They did not carry around so much fat. Insulin is the fat hormone.

This is what I do and is just something for you to think/experiment about.

Last thoughts; wheat and corn are worse than potatoes and rice. This is internal information. Perhaps, potatoes and rice are more neutral.

Love, Light and Laughter,

Merln
