Where People Eat The Most Sugar & Fat

Before you take health, diet, and wellness advice from a country you may want to consider what they are marketing to you! Check out the below charts that outline how much sugar and fat people consume per day.

Fat is not the cause of obesity and diabetes, overconsumption of sugar and carbohydrates is!

Here is the fat consumption by country:

Intermittent Fasting

Secret Sugar

The story in this video serves as a very graphic reminder of how much sugar is hidden in our everyday foods. No, we are not talking about junk foods! There is so much sugar in our so-called healthy food that it isn’t healthy at all.

Damon Gameau embarks on a bold experiment to consume foods that are thought to be healthy, however, are loaded with sugar. See for yourself what happens.

Time to cut the sugar!

Food and Your Brain

This video explains how the food you eat affects your brain, energy, and mood. Brain fog is a telltale sign that you have a nutrient deficiency.

SUGAR: The Bitter Truth

This is an old video. However, it is as relevant today as it was years ago! Dr. Robert H. Lustig makes the point that we have been trying the low-fat approach for 40 years and it has failed to make us slimmer or healthier. In fact, we have gotten fatter and sicker. While the percentage of our daily calorie intake accounted for by fat has dropped steadily, the incidence of obesity and related illnesses, including type 2 diabetes, has gone through the roof. “Sugar is the problem,” states Lustig, “and yet public health officials are still advising us to follow a low-fat diet.”

Children Born Today Will Live to 120

We are entering a new era of personalized longevity. Children born today will live well past 120. Not only will they live longer, they will maintain excellent health through their various stages of life and experience a quality of life that is unheard of today.

I don’t know about you, but I would like to live as long as possible. Some people feel that life isn’t worth living and have essentially given up – have a death wish – and want to take others with them!

Long life brings more focus onto the quest for meaning and fulfillment. No longer is it enough to pay the bills, get buy, chase the never-ending rate-race. The problem with winning the rat-race is that you are still a rat!

If you knew without a doubt that what you did today would shape your experience in the future, what changes would you make? What would you do to live an extra 20 years?

How Sugar Affects Your Brain

75-Year Study: Good Relationships Keep Us Happier and Healthier

From Harvard Psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, edited by Andrew John Harrison.

Ask most young people what they want from life and they will tell you money and fame. Landmark 75-year study of what actually matters reveals lessons that aren’t about wealth or fame or working harder and harder. The clearest message that we get is this:

Good relationships keep us happier and healthier.

Harvard’s Grant & Glueck study tracked the physical and emotional well-being of 268 male graduates from Harvard, as well as 456 poor men growing up in Boston from 1939 to 2014. Multiple generations of researchers analyzed brain scans, blood samples, self-reported surveys and interactions of these men to compile their findings.

The conclusions are simple. Close relationships can make or break a person’s well-being, according to Robert Waldinger, Harvard professor of psychology and director of the center that sponsored the study.

The study reveals the following lessons:

FREE WILL > Are We Actually Making Our Own Decisions?

Recent research into how we make decisions reveals some startling findings that a brain scan can predict what we will choose 6 seconds before we consciously make the decision. So does that mean we are making most of our decisions unconsciously? You decide…

ZONE TIPS > Your Feelings Are Not Reliable

Feelings are important to our experience of living as human beings. It is said that all mammals have some feelings; however, as a human being, we have the widest range of feelings. Beyond the basic triad of pain, pleasure and numb, we have a lot of nuances to describe how we feel at any given moment — about everything we experience.

When it comes to making decisions, even the most rational, seemingly emotionless decision-makers are, unbeknownst to them, influenced by their feelings — even if they are not consciously aware of them. Even no feeling is a feeling.

Because of past things that have happened to us (both real and imagined) we tend to have conflicting emotions, as well as stacks of misplaced emotions, that get projected onto items, areas, subjects and people that they do not belong to.
