High protein diets are sedentary diets. They slow down the metabolic machinery of mitochondria and shut down the production of the enzymes that regulate the citric acid cycle. By throwing a monkey-wrench into the cell’s metabolic pathways, they hope to force the body to burn fat to make up the loss
High protein diets are recommended by advocates because they produce weight loss. High protein diets depend on the inefficient conversion of fat into energy. They intentionally gum up cellular respiration to force the body to rely on the oxidation of fatty acids to fuel activity. Although it helps sedentary and overweight people lose weight, athletes should avoid diets geared to these people and their metabolic type.
Athletes who follow a high protein diet are damaging their bodies by failing to provide all the essential nutrients needed to properly recover from exercise. Athletes require a library of compounds to prevent molecular and bodily injury. These pigments, saponins, and alkaloids are found in foods that grow in the ground. They are not found in meals rich in meat or those that severely limit the carbohydrate content of their foods.
The importance of these colorful and odiferous phytopigments lies in their ability to bond with human reseptors.
So not only do these molecules make foods look, taste and smell wonderful but they prevent diseases, repress inflammation and delay aging.
A Black Box warning should be required on the book jackets and food labels that promote carbohydrate restricted diets.
These diets assume the absence of exercise.
This program should not be followed by unhealthy people until they have made the first step towards healthiness.
Unhealthy non-athletes, who may lead meaningful and productive lives are unhealthy if they are inactive. It is that simple.
The foods and botanical supplements recommended are geared to a healthy athlete’s metabolism. Only athletes attain this state.
Healthy people who work sedentary jobs must find imaginative ways to structure their free time to include exercise.
Early morning, lunch breaks, after dinner. The more the demands from the job, the more intense the exercise.
Exercise is built into the lives of farmers, builders and ranchers.
They don’t need as much recreational exercise as those who are desk bound. desk bound athletes create sedentary stress.
To improve their health, they must stimulate their metabolic systems, outside of work.
The metabolic needs of people who exercise are more than those of sedentary people.
Athletes whose work requires activity are fortunate. But even they must work to improve their aerobic conditioning. For without this vital component of exercise, the anaerobic advantages they gained from manual labor is lost.
Unhealthy people may lead busy lives but it is also an inactive one. Unhealthy people become focused on material success to validate their life and then depend on drugs to cure their unhealthiness.
Children who choose sedentary activities like video games and ‘chilling out’ during their leisure time will be more afflicted with these diseases than children who choose to move.
