A Few Interesting Facts

I am actually completely enthralled with all this new found information regarding this Maker's Diet.  I haven't been able to look at food the same way again since reading this book.  There is so much need-to-know information in there. 

Take for instance, artificial sweeteners, they are really bad for you.  Since it's supposed to taste like sugar and not actually be sugar, it's quite deceiving.  After 20 minutes in your body, Aspartame begins to break down from its ingested compound. What is in your body, then?
•Methanol
•Formaldehyde (a Class-A carcinogen used to embalm corpses)
•Formic acid (ant venom)
Research shows that when you want sugary substances, use real sugar.  Artificial sweeteners will only tamper with your systems and can wreak havoc in your body.  Not to mention they completely mess up your blood sugar levels and your body's response to them. 

I can't believe it's not butter.  You know what, that's totally a lie.  I CAN believe it's not butter.  For one, it tastes horrible, nothing like butter.  Two, it is made artificially with artificial products that are also completely horrible for your system.  From looking at the ingredients, there are a ton of soy products.  Which is also completely horrendous for your system as well.  Basically, it is always better to use real butter then any of it's low fat, low calorie look alikes.  One of the reasons soy is bad for your body is it mimics estrogen in your body.  Estrogen is good to a certain extent.  Your body already produces the amount it needs, if you have a lot of estrogen, it also can create some not so good side affects.  Soy has been linked to several forms of cancer and from various websites, they are saying the negative in using soy products far out way the benefits. 

Herbs are frankly a fighting machine! They are so great for your body.  I read up on the various herbs and spices and what they can do for your body.  Most of them help in so many area's I would be typing out a massive novel with all the benefits these natural spices have.  To name a few: They are anti-inflammatory, immune boosting, help fight cancer, help your digestive system, they fight arthritis, skin sores, bronchitis, coughs, congestion, muscle spasms, headaches, ulcers, tooth-decay, depression, fungi, candida, viruses, psoriasis, indigestion, body odor,  and even some can be used as disinfectants or anesthetics.  Man! Those are some powerful little warriors that are so easy to add to our daily lives!

That's only a small percentage of the things I have been learning! Crazy stuff, ey?
