When it comes to powering poor health, the garbohydrates take pride of place at the top of the junk food pyramid.

 

 

The garbohydrates (yep that's a 'g' not a 'c') are a new food classification designed to cope with the rise and rise of junk food.

 

The 'official' diet pyramids and plates no longer provide consumers with adequate advice about how to eat wisely. This is because junk food has taken such a prominent place in people's diets.

 

And it's not just take-aways. A lot of junk food is eaten at home. You just have to look at people's shopping trolleys to know that.

 

The garbohydrates more clearly define what junk food is.

 

The prime position on the junk food scale is now held by the garbohydrates, the principle ingredients of which are flour, sugar and potato, on their own and/or mixed together and/or with fat.

 

If you're looking for the complete garbohydrate meal look no further than the all-American garbohydrate diet of hamburger, chips and thick shake.

 

When it comes to powering poor health, the garbohydrates (yep, thatís a Ďgí not a Ďcí) are in the front line.

 

The garbohydrates are the most lethal junk food cocktail and take pride of place at the top of the junk food pyramid. In fact they now form the predominant food group in Western society.

 

In fact if you look at the 'official' diet pyramids all you'll see is grains. You won't see sugar and you won't see fat on its own. You won't see chips. In fact you won't see any manufactured food (apart from bread and bovine milk.)

 

The garbohydrates don't fit into the 'normal' dietary classification which is why the 'normal' dietary guidelines are out of date.


The garbohydrates are a new food classification designed to cope with the rise and rise of junk food.
 
The diet pyramids and plates of august nutritional organisations no longer provide consumers with adequate advice about how to eat wisely in a junk food world - ie. in a way that nourishes the cells of their body, promotes normal healthy bowel function and maintains an ideal weight.
 

If you want to know why youíre getting fatter look no further than the garbohydrates. If you lay off the garbohydrates there is a good chance you'll lose fat from your body. In fact, the basis of all successful diets is laying off garbohydrates.

 

At a time when flour is increasingly being implicated as a cause of the epidemic of bowel dysfunction, obesity and other metabolic dysfunctions, the proponents of the 'official diet pyramid models continue to promote refined cereal-based starches as an essential part of a model diet. The Department of Health recommends you eat between 8 and 12 slices of bread a day. Hello!

 

Sugar was aptly described by British physiologist and nutritionist as 'pure, white and deadly.' It lies at the root of all manner of body system dysfunctions.

 

The mantra to eat more bread and pasta, is fuelling the epidemic of obesity, Candida fungus and a range of body system dysfunctions, from headaches to lethargy, elevated blood pressure, irritable bowel, cardiac dysfunction and diabetes.

 

THE GARBOHYDRATES 

 

Flour

Every time you see flour, think sugar. Itís having the same effect, massive glucose dumps that upset your metabolic system. We donít eat much flour on its own; the bread and pasta illustrated would normally be accompanied with fat and sugar.

        

 

 

Sugar

Pure, white and deadly. The love of sugar is the root of all kinds of body system dysfunction. In our culture you could classify it as a poison itís taken in such large amounts.

 

 

Flour and fat

When you add fat in with the flour you've got a very high density product. A Jatz dry biscuit has 1960Kj/100 gms, and the Ritz dry biscuit 2370Kj/100gms, and that's without the dip, cheese, salami and gherkin! Because of the extra fat,, the Ritz cracker is softer.

 

 

 

Flour and sugar

When you mix flour and sugar you usually get a small biscuit, usually masquerading as a cereal. Be not deceived

       

 

 

Fat and sugar

The day that fat tooth met sweet tooth was a joyous occasion. Spirits were raised, belts were loosened

 

Chocolate is 35% fat and 55% sugar. You love the taste and the texture.

     

 

 

Fat, flour  and sugar

Ranging in energy density from 1900KJ/100gms through to 2,300Kj/100gms.

 

Or try this for size: how Ďbout a slice of bread with butter, peanut butter and honey? I can tell you itís very appetizing and does wonders for your figure, particularly if you take the NH&MRC recommendation to have between 8 and 12 slices a day.

   

 

 

Fat  and potato

A variation on the flour and fat classification, this time substituting one starch for another. The final form of this particular garbohydrate occurs when the humble potato is cut up into small pieces and bathed in fat. Hereís what happens.
