Call To Action Nutrition and Surveys from LA Daily News 2

Call To Action Nutrition and Surveys from LA Daily News 2(#2)

Yesterday I began discussing the article by Susan Abram in the Sunday edition of the LA Daily News.

 Today I want to continue with that and include these statistics.


A really good article on the “facts” about obesity and overweigh and the cause of it. 

Of course there is lots of “opinions” on this but Susan really hit the nail on the head.  It’s basically caused by over-eating fast foods or wrong foods…..

I recently read the book EAT TO LIVE, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman and he has given example after example of people eating all they want or all they could possibly eat and still lost weight…..

Dr. Fuhrman says if we eat a pound of RAW greens a day…. A pound of cooked greens a day…. A coup of beans a day and 4 servings of fruits a day…… we could eat until we’re totally “stuffed” and still lose weight,,,,,, drop  our cholesterol levels to acceptable levels…. Reduce our high blood pressure to acceptable levels and in many cases eliminate diabetes (type 2) and heart issues…..among other things…. By doing this, we’re eliminating sugars and fats  (bad fats) from our daily diet.  Also by eating like this we would also move toward eliminating other auto-immune and inflammatory issues (chronic deseases) in our bodies….. Think about that…. All by eating right!!!!

Back to Susan’s article…. I must agree that marketing that makes fast foods look soooo good tends to be responsible for Americans hitting the fast food restaurants and in fact lots of “other” restaurants….. and “portion sizes” are generally HUGE at almost all restaurants. 

Buffets and “all you can eat” is also a cause…. Seems everyone wants to “get their money’s worth”…. And they do….. loading their plates to overflowing and then going back for more…..

Enough about that….

In Susan’s article she records another important fact….. we simply CANNOT rely on Government and Pharmaceutical Companies to help solve our  problems by stricter “controls” on what we eat and how much we eat.

The second part of Susan’s article dealt with SURVEYS and what’s happening to the American public.—Chronic Diseases Gain—-

Here are a few vital facts from her article:

  1. Average life expectancy for men and women has increased from 75.2 years in 1990 to 78.2 years in 2010, primarily because of better vaccines and better medicines….. according to the American Medical Association.

    Note: I’m a little skeptical about that since they always want to toot their own horns …. We need to follow the money….. Just to follow the logic of not allowing Government and Big Pharma…. to control our eating ….. we cannot allow them to control our health either….. Medicine also Kills…

    In fact a recent article in the Scientific American says that approximately 210,000 people die yearly because of medical mistakes in US Hospitals. — WOW!!!


Here’s a quote that will amaze you….. from the Scientific American— Now comes a study in the current issue of the Journal of Patient Safety that says the numbers may be much higher 2014 between 210,000 and 440,000 patients each year who go to  the hospital for care suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death, the study says.

That would make medical errors the third-leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease, which is the first, and cancer, which is second.”


So you see….. heart disease continues to be the number one cause of death with cancer being number 2…..


You may have read that we ALL have cancer cells in our bodies all the time.  They are constantly manifesting and dying…… dying because we eat foods loaded with antioxidants and foods that have “low to no” sugars and bad fats…… Sugar for cancer cells is like throwing gasoline on an open fire….. it feeds the cancer cells…. So we need to get away from sugar….. we simply eat too much of it in the American diet.


  1. Even though life expectance is increasing,  “….morbidity and chronic disability now  accounts for nearly half of the U.S. health burden….”


  2. An increase in type 2 diabetes in high school students.


  3. Physicians are seeing more fatty liver disease in 12-year-olds, and teens with gall bladder stones, typically associated with obesity.


  4. Undiagnosed Diabetes is a significant problem in the U.S.


An interesting fact that I didn’t know is that the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) in Long Beach and Monrovia, CA and in 14 other counties across the U.S. examines the physical fitness and dietary habits of randomly  selected people.  These findings over the past 54 years are provided to the National Center for Helth Statistics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Again…. I want to thank Susan Abram for her article this past Sunday.  It’s been a confirming article on the declining health of Americans because of our eating and lifestyle habits.

Daily Prompt


Call To Action –Eat To Live- 6 Week Plan


I’m almost finished reading the
book Eat To Live, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.


It’s been and eye opener for me in
that it’s showing how to reverse most
of the health conditions men my age
are experiencing.


I’m happy to report that I don’t have
any illnesses, I don’t take any Meds
and I do work out at the gym 3-5
days a week….. and I’m 70 years old.


I certainly haven’t eaten right all these
years and I gained weight that I shouldn’t
have gained…. And I’ve lost it…. Several
times…… as most of us have.


This book has shown me that I can eat
all I want….. and be satiated from
over eating ….. and still lose weight or
maintain my desired weight.


The key is to EAT TO LIVE…. By eating
the right foods and AVOIDING the
wrong foods….


So…. Tonight I’m giving you the EAT

TO LIVE Six-Week eating plan.  During
this time… if you have high cholesterol,
high blood pressure, high triglycerides…
If you have type-2 diabetes,,,have excess
body fat….. If you have hormonal
imbalances, glucose absorption issues,
varicose veins, hemorrhoids and
constipation…….these conditions can
be brought under control or at
least get you moving in the right
direction during this six week period.


Here’s what to do…..


Eat all you want…. (of these foods)
+ raw vegetables (force yourself
to eat at least 1lb daily) –I like this!
+cooked greens and non-green
nutrient-rich vegetables (1lb. daily)
-these veggies are: eggplant, mushrooms,
peppers, onions, tomatoes, carrots,

+beans, legumes, bean sprouts (1 cup daily)
+fresh fruits at least 4 daily.


Eat Limited amounts of these foods.

+cooked starchy vegetables or whole grains:
– butternut and acorn squash, rice, sweet
potatoes, cereal (not more than one
serving or one cup daily.) Use coconut or
almond milk preferably.

+raw nuts and seeds, 1 oz daily
+avocado, 2 oz daily

+dried fruit, 2 table spoons daily
+ground flaxseed, 1 tablespoon daily



+dairy products
+animal products
+between-meal snacks
+fruit juice (eat the fruit)


NOTE: these are the recommendations given
by Dr. Fuhrman and he does NOT believe in
MODERATION…. In fact he says….
Moderation KILLS…..


SO…. Take these guidelines and stick to them
for just six weeks.


Do this:

  1. 1.     Weigh yourself.
  2. 2.     Calculate your BMI.
  3. 3.     Subtract 24 from your BMI
    and Multiply that number by
    six(6)…. This will determine your
    desired weight.
    NOTE: athletes and muscular framed
    folks can and should use other measures.

NOTE 2…. Dr. Fuhrman uses another measure:

(MEN: 105 lbs for first five feet of height and
add 5 lbs for every inch over 5 feet.
WOMEN: 95 lbs for the first 5 feet of height
and add 4 lbs for every inch over 5 feet.

+man 5’8” should weigh 145 lbs
+woman 5’4” should weight 111 lbs.
(These weights seem low, but lean
people live longer)


Ok… that’s it for tonight…. Remember last
night I wrote about the PAIN OF DISCIPLINE,
and what it takes to accomplish great things.


Well… this requires the same effort.

Reminds me of Internet Marketing…. Same thing
here…. Discipline, structure, action…..

I love what Tom Peters wrote in his book
In Search Of Excellence…… READY, FIRE, AIM…


So….let’s get started… and make adjustments
along the way….
