What are Hydrogenated Oils? They come in most process foods. Technically when you eat anything the main purpose is for active enzymes to nourish the cells in your body. Hydrogenated oils were once normal oils that have been heated to about 900 degrees and then stuck with a toxic metallic alloyed(usually nickel), that binds hydrogen atoms to it's compound post. This makes the food your eating have more shelf life. Technically because it's a dead food that has no active enzymes. When you eat this
substance it reverses the the main purpose function of your cells. Your cells needs to be nourished with nutrients, the expunge its waist. Healthy fats guides these processes and keeps pathogens and toxins from entering the cells. When you eat hydrogenated oils, it prevents your cells from being nourished by nutrients, stops the cell from eliminating waist, and allows pathogens and toxins to enter the cells in your body!

  • Lack of knowledge or just don't really think about or just don't care but either way preaching to people about how they live their lives isn't going to make them change, it has exactly the opposite affect.To me it seems those raised in the country with animals are a lot more aware than those raised in urban areas. Anything we ate as kids came from our backyard, meat, vegetables, fruit but we were still given pizza, fries etc once in a while and its still the same for me and my s.o now. People go for convenience and honestly believe cooking a dinner from scratch takes too long. When I was a kid I never went to McDonalds, ever, now people go daily. All you can try to do is encourage those around you to try fresh produce but its a lot more expensive when you have to buy it. I'm lucky I live in the country, have the space for a vegetable garden, my father keeps sheep and grows practically everything, my fiances father is a beef farmer so what we eat is readily available and free which is not the case when you live in an urban area.

    • If the anti nutrients from grains and legumes does not effect you, which is very unlikely, it's still a unnecessary staple because its almost like consuming empty calories with a carb count that will take your body time to burn off. It's empty calories because you don't really absorb any the nutrients it offers anyways!

    • And off you go again, you just don't get it do you. So let me put it this way. Why oh why would anybody take advice off you. You are qualified in what? You didn't even know the difference between a nutritionist and a dietician. Yet you act like a know-it-all, are ignorant to others

  • Cookies don't make me "feel like sh*t", haha!I'll eat a cookie because it tastes good - in my mouth, not my brain.If people don't go to the point of excess, then what's the big deal with eating a cookie once in a while? The key is balance, always.

    • No, some cookies should not even be consumed once. They put poisons in cookies like Hydrogenated oils. This will make you sick, make you feel like sh*t, and if you eat too much of it, then you die! You have no idea what you're really talking about and your talking to somebody that does!

    • The more natural you eat. This is a fact. The inflammation in your body the; more wear you put on it. It's just like a car, if you don't have a working radiator and fan, your engine over heats and falls apart. Now think about your body, your brain, your muscles, your arteries; they're all inflamed. Think about it, inflammations is the leading cause in cancer! This information came from tons of studies, that all been proven factual. I've been studying and experimenting for years, I live what I

    • talk about, and also, my professors from classes in this field wonder how I rarely show up for the classes and still ace all the tests.

  • Ok so I see someone wants to show off their new bio chem studies lol. Anyway along with food having these bad additives you do know these same additives are also used to make the unhealthy foods taste good. Then once you've tried it and liked it it's an addiction. Designed to make your body want them a lot and make you go through a type of withdrawl to once again make your body feel the need to want the unleathy goodness again. We all know at least once in our lives it's hard to beat an addiction. Also the images you are assaulted with everyday and some people may not even care. Even though I'm a vegetarian and buy organic whatever it is all the time I'm pretty sure you will see me want a McDonalds fry maybe a nugget one day and I know how vile those things are but I'll still want the fries and eat them. The only difference is I know what I need to eat to re-adjust my body.

    • Yeah those carbs could be very addicting, the more simple carbs you consume the more your body adopts to it, but definitely doesn't benefit from it. The thing is the moment you put something in your body, it becomes part of you. People just thinks its food that goes in and comes out as waste, but it doesn't work that way. You have to understand it on a molecular level to really understand what I'm saying, but if you do understand, then you'll agree how scary it could be.

    • Show Older
    • Although these things are scary I agree all we can do is eat as healthy as possible and have people become more aware not consuming so much processed food. And also it depends on the person or people if they want to change their habits as well.

    • You know about them chem trails too? Wow, I'm surprised, not a lot of people people know about them and I'am not talking about contrails. I'm talking about the government testing chemical warfare on our own people, right here in this country!

  • So your telling me you have never ate anything bad in your life is that what your saying?

    • How would I know the symptoms these foods bring if I have never tried them? Of course in the past I ate them, and from completely eliminating it out of my diet, you will feel the difference!

    • Did you loose weight after you started eating better?

    • Yes of course, theirs many ways that you can loose weight tweaking your diet. I lost the weight years ago, but I started the paleo diet a year and a half ago. Even though I already lost the weight, I changed it once again and found out that it's not about loosing the weight, it's about feeling great, and in result of switching up my diet to the paleo diet, I lost a lot more weight that I was carrying when I ate grains and legumes. About 10 more lbs.

  • For the same reasons they do everything that is ba for them, instant gratification without a second thought as to the consequences

    • When you learn about what food does to you on a molecular level, you know that some foods should not even be consumed once. Some people eat this stuff daily, and guess what? it alters your DNA!

  • You gotta eat. I try to avoid anything with bones or veins, artery's, gristle. It just gives me the willies, just talking about it makes me shiver.

    • Oh man, flesh should be bulk of your diet! That's something worth trying to get over.

    • I love meat, I just have to disguise it. You know put it soups, ground it up, stews. Stuff like that. I also love fish, but it can't have a head or tail when I eat it.

    • The catalyst stays in solid form. The heated oil does not interact with the structure of the catalyst. The catalyst does it's job and then moves onto the next batch of oil, but yes it is true that sometimes it leaves trace of the alloy behind. In the article I posted to this comment explains how this raises cholesterol levels to repair the body from these metals.

  • It gets pretty expensive to only eat things that are "good" for you. That is why I do it. I know it is an unhealthy snack or dinner, but I just don't have to money to buy all healthy food. So I eat what I can afford in moderation.

    • Real food keeps you stuffed longer and keeps the doctors away, trust me, it's cheaper!

  • There are many factors to this. The commercials for junk food and culture are the two largest ones. Additionally people fail to connect the negative effects or they feel themselves immune to problems others get. I've heard many people say, "I'll eat it because I want to live my life." They pretty much think they live through food and choose not to mentally internalize what its doing to them until its too late. Also, we have learned a lot of how food effects us mentally, and food companies have learned to abuse it so people literally become addicted. People eat this way since they're very little. I think the blame falls on many shoulders but that doesn't give people an excuse.

    • Majority of this country knows about our corrupted government, it's on them to do the research!

  • I was raised in a home where my mom didn't buy meat from the store my daddy wouldn't let her! The only meat we ever ate was meat he killed his self! (sounds country I know) but growing up my sisters and I were never sick sure we got the common cold but that's it! My daddy has always said they put too many poisons in meat while they process it!

    • You're absolutely right! I try to buy my meat 100% grass fed, pasture raised, so my cattle can roam around and not absorb too many toxins. They live a happier life, without any added hormones or antibiotics. Same with my chicken. Fed flax seed, cage free on land free of pesticides, and they can eat all the bugs they want.

  • I try not to eat so much junk but my diet is still poor mainly because of my parents, over the last 5 years I have tried to lose weight, only managed to lost 4 stone but... sadly I have put a stone and a half back on :(. My problem is though even if I cut out all crap including no coffee or tea, and completely cut chocolate and sugar out of my diet altogether I still take FOREVER to lose it. I really lack in vegetables and fruit though and would love to fix it but I don't have the money at all, I have a membership at DW Sports Club but I haven't been going, fell of it completely because I am so unmotivated and even with 2 hours exersise it takes 8 months just to lose a couple of stone, it's just put me off but I want to keep trying but I can only go like 2 or 3 days a week right now. What's worse is I can't even lose weight jsut by eating 2 pieces of toast :\ to even lose it all I can eat is probs a handful of cerial and that's it but I won't because I am still hungry. I have come to find though that grains are not entirely what they are made out to be though, generally YES! they satisfy your hungry for a bit longer but the downside is they don't digest quick enough ether for you to burn those calories :(, so I guess they are not so healthy for you at all unless you eat 3 hours before you workout, but generally grains just hold the weight on you.

    • Their is absolutely nothing healthy about grains. The purpose of eating is for active enzymes(living tissue) to nourish the cells in your body, Grains deprive you of that. Just because you digested something, doesn't mean that your body has absorbed it, and the thing is that sugar is burned quickly, so eating carbs just start the hunger pangs. Stay to eating flesh, eggs, olives, avocados, plants, and vegetables. Low in carbs, high in fat, very well good for you and will keep you satisfied longer

    • I know tell me about it, it just tastes like cake made out of cheap sweetener (actually I think that's what it is) lol, oooh how good is he at it? I'm studying catering and I would love to be able to make really awesome cakes but our oven sucks big time, we have one of those cheap one temperature ones where we can only light one light at a time, cake is the only thing we can cook in it, cookies come out terrible lol.

    • He has his own bakery and is extremely talented, even if I do so. Its mostly novelty cakes and wedding cakes he does. As far as I know its got nothing to do with sweetener, but that might depend on the bakery, its the flour without the protein it doesn't really bind and is very difficult to roll.

  • Eh, idk. Maybe it is bad for me but I don't really care. I have a huge sweet tooth and that's never going to change. I honestly don't care how the food makes me feel or what negative affects it has on me. If I were to die from either eating unhealthily or from smoking, I'd definitely choose death by food.

    • Obviously you like to indulge, you probably feel sorry for yourself!

    • I know that, I learned about that in health last year. But it's my body and I can do whatever I want with it. I like to eat sweets instead of drink, do drugs, and party like most of the people I know at my school. I'm pretty sure just eating is the better option, plus it's not illegal...So if I want to eat healthily or unhealthily, then that's my decision and nobody can convince me to do otherwise except maybe a doctor.

    • Do what you please, I just want to give some insight!

  • Many people cannot afford Healthy food. That is the main reason people eat "crap" along with it tastes good. It tastes good to me! I go to McDonalds and a chicken sandwich is a dollar and the salads are expensive (Not that those salads are particularly healthy), do you understand what I'm saying? I'd love to eat healthier food, but my family just doesn't have the money. We have to buy processed food in bulk (Like Costco) because we don't have the money to always buy the healthy food. However, it's my body, I can eat whatever I want to eat. You are very judgmental... having concern for other people's health is one thing, having a *holier than thou* attitude is totally different, and honestly, not needed. Focus on eating YOUR healthy food for YOUR body instead of what other people are doing, you will be happier.

    • Just because I write a question about the topic doesn't mean I'm concerned about everybody in reality. Now to your answer, it makes no sense. Even if it is a common response. Eating things that your body does not recognize as food will just tell your brain that you're tummy is stuffed. You are not nourishing any cells which is the purpose of eating. All it is is empty calories. So you can't afford to be really healthy, but yet you spend your money on things that are not real food?

I'm talking about over-eating beause of feelings and emotions. eating every time they're sad, or depressed. it's their comfort. just like an alcoholic. the alcohol is their comfort.i used to have an eating problem like that. I sort of still do, I just control it better. I used to eat a 2 litres of icecream day, legit.pretty soon, the whole world is gonna be dying from obesity. it's pretty sad, actually.

What about the people that can't afford the life style that you are so hard pressed about? I mean seriously they do fave to feed themselves and their children. I wonder if you grew up eating the things that you preach about? You say that you are one of the best dietitians, but in reality it is the mother's and father's that cook meals for their children that meet the criteria of a healthy meal that still taste good. They know they can't supply the best, but they do what they can and teach their children ways to maintain a balanced meal. It may not be that way in some places, but that is how it is in a lot of places.

    • Yes your right, but it can be a good chemical released or a bad one. Then their are some bad chemicals that are released from feeling horrible from what you just ate, and I'm taking about low quality energy. It is true that in most cases your brain does not know the difference between your thought and reality!

    • Yep, just eat real food.

If my morning cigarettes and coffee kill me ten years earlier than you, I'm cool with that. You will be stuck crapping into a bag those extra ten years. I will have lived my life the way I want and skip the extra years of misery.

Once in a while some junk food is not gonna kill you, and it does make us feel good and there's little harm. In the end, we can work out, we can do whatever we want, and we can still be able to stay healthy. Honestly, you're like a Buddhist posting a question like "How is it possible for people not to believe in the power of Buddha?" Well, we have our reasons. Don't berate us just because you have a different opinion from the vast majority of people.

    • You don't know what your talking about. It's not an opinion. Some foods should not be consumed not even once. You think it's only energy in energy out. Doesn't work that way! I don't care what anybody here eats, but don't come to me telling me that what I do for a career is just my opinion. A lot of people have been doing it to me on this topic.
