By Mike Geary, Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Nutrition Specialist Author of the best-seller: The Truth About Six Pack Abs 3 So-Called “Healthy” Foods that You Should STOP Eating (if you want a lean healthy body) Your food may not be as healthy as you think I was reading a statistic in a nutrition book recently, and this is going to shock you… Now before I tell you the statistic, let’s keep an important fact in mind… according to well renowned nutrition author Michael Pollan, and his amazing book called In Defense of Food , humankind has historically consumed approximately 80,000 different species of edible plants, animals, and fungi, and approximately 3,000 of those have been widespread foods of the human diet. Now get ready for a shocking and appalling statistic… Currently, the average adult in the US consumes approximately 67% of their total caloric intake from only 3 foods — CORN, SOY, AND WHEAT (and their derivatives). What would be considered a reasonably healthy amount of corn, soy, and wheat in the human diet? Based on 10′s of thousands of years of human history, and what the natural diet of our ancestors was (indicating what our digestive systems are still programmed to process), this would probably be in the range of about 1% to 5% MAX of our total calories from corn, soy, and wheat. Considering that modern humans are eating 67% of their total calories from corn, soy, wheat… you can see why we have massive problems in our health, and our weight! It’s not a surprise that we have so many intolerances and allergies, specifically to soy and wheat (and gluten intolerance)… the human digestive system was simply never meant to consume these substances in such MASSIVE quantities. Keep in mind that these massively high levels of corn, soy, and wheat in our modern human diet is a relatively new phenomenon that originated from the economics of the multi-billion dollar corn, soy, and wheat industries. It really HAS been all about the money… NOT about our health! By “derivatives” of corn, soy, and wheat, this means the food additives such as: high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) corn oil soybean oil (hydrogenated or plain refined) soy protein refined wheat flour hundreds of other food additives such as maltodextrin, corn or wheat starch, soy lecithin, mono and diglycerides, etc, etc This doesn’t surprise me… consider how much soda or other sweetened drinks (with loads of HFCS) that the average person drinks daily… this is a LOT of calories from just 1 sole corn derivative. Even marinades, salad dressings, ketchup, breads, and 100′s of other foods contain loads of belly-fattening HFCS! Also think about how many processed foods we have that are either fried in soybean or corn oil… and even if the foods are not fried in these oils, these oils are additives to almost every processed food… chips, candies, cakes, salad dressings, tomato sauces, burrito wraps, corn chips, breaded chicken, etc, etc.
