Fatty Acids, Proteins & Obesity
Fats are necessary for a healthy body but in excess they sure don't do a body good. They contribute to more health ills than any other nutritional element.
They are responsible for clogged arteries which in turn lead to strokes and heart attacks - and other circulatory ills. And they are also responsible for creating weight gain challenges in about two-third's of Americans.
While the body requires a bit of fat to be healthy, sources in our food chain are greatly lacking in other nutritional elements. All cooking oils are void of protein grams.
Side Effect of a Diet Lacking Fat
The dieter will most likely lose quite an amount of hair - and it may never grow back to its original thickness. This is what happened to me when I went on a dangerous crash diet about twenty years ago.
Sure, I lost about one-half of my body weight - and that's saying a lot for a lady that has to stretch in order to be 5' in height. I lost over 100 pounds of body fat. But I also lost a lot more.
I lost at least half of my hair - and it's never grown back to its former full state. At the time, I became very scared because it was coming out by the brush.
My skin also suffered - and when I was tested by a nurse, she told me that I had virtually no body fat. She was amazed - but what she didn't tell me was that my vital organs had minimal protection. That's yet another function of body fat - to protect our vital organs.
Sugar, Proteins & Obesity
Next in line, we see sugar as the biggest health contributor - right below fats.
Sugar is generally assumed to cause diabetes - but that's not accurate. You've probably heard the layman's term 'sugar diabetes'.
All of the energy that humans consume which is housed within foods and beverages quickly reverts to 'sugar' once in the body and the digestion process begins.
The issue with individuals who have diabetes is with the pancreas. It simply cannot handle vast amounts of sugar - thus the breakdown.
While sugar and fat can create health issues as well as weight gain, we need a bit of both in our daily diet. Many of the natural foods contain minimal amounts. Even vegetables hold sugar grams and minimal dietary fat.
