Sugar is the new cholesterol
By The Food Coach, Jennifer Bruer ¦
When I tell people that cholesterol is good for them, I get a whole bunch of different reactions but the two most common ones are anger and confusion. When someone is angry, I am always shocked. I am a Child and Youth Worker, that is my profession, that is what I do, day in, day out. I am a Food Coach because I believe I have a place in life to help re-educate people, to prevent illness in our world. I don’t get paid to talk about how cholesterol is good for them, why are they getting angry at me?
When I finally made my way over from the dark side (haha) I looked back and I could see the people that I love over there….I wanted them to come and join me. That’s the reason I am a Food Coach. I need my blog on my Living Grainlessly website to become more “popular” so that people will follow suit.
Funny enough, the information that I now live by is a) not new anymore, and b) not hard to understand at all. So here are some things I’ve learned in basic terms…
The basic concept of change is this: take everything you ever thought was true and do the complete bloody opposite – then you should be okay. Well, except vegetables, for now, they are still healthy – if they are Non-GMO, organic, and from a local sustainable farm :-).
I am being playful, but the truth is, this re-learning is hard and confusing. But please, do not give up! I need to believe that I can evoke a change. Right now someone is having a heart attack; that someone could be a person that ate low-fat, ran everyday, and now could die, leaving their loved ones confused. I have to believe that somewhere, someone with type-2 diabetes will NOT lose their leg because they chose to re-think things. Spread the message… Cholesterol is not the bad guy. Sugar is!
