  • Carrying on from my last post, I said I would address each point regarding satiety with its own post so I’ll start with protein and satiety.
🥛
Numerous studies have summarised the literature regarding protein and satiety with Paddon-Jones et al 2008 and Westerterp-Plantenga et al 2012 both good examples to read. The general conclusions from these papers are;
Potential beneficial outcomes associated with protein ingestion include the following:
.
1) Increased satiety—protein usually increases satiety to a greater extent than carbohydrate or fat and may enable a reduction in energy consumption under ad libitum dietary conditions.
.
2) Increased thermogenesis—higher-protein diets are associated with increased thermogenesis, which also influences satiety and augments energy expenditure (in the longer term, increased thermogenesis contributes to the relatively low-energy efficiency of protein).
.
3) Conservation or accretion of fat-free mass—in some individuals, a moderately higher protein diet may provide a stimulatory effect on muscle protein anabolism, favouring the retention of lean muscle mass while improving metabolic profile.
🍳
I want to look at point one in a little more detail, the study that is often used for this is Weigle et al 2015, subjects in this study were put on a weight-maintaining diet (15% protein, 35% fat, and 50% carbohydrate) for 2 weeks, an isocaloric diet (30% protein, 20% fat, and 50% carbohydrate) for 2 weeks, and an ad libitum diet (30% protein, 20% fat, and 50% carbohydrate) for 12 weeks with each participant acting as their own control.
🍗
They found satiety was markedly increased with the isocaloric high-protein diet. Average spontaneous energy intake decreased by ~450 kcal/day, body weight decreased by ~4.9 kg, and fat mass decreased by ~3.7kg with the ad libitum, high-protein diet.
🍠
What is also of note in this study is the carbohydrate content of the diet of 50%, they discuss in the paper which has been discussed in the literature that the effect of protein may help to explain the paradoxical weight loss observed in subjects placed on low-carbohydrate diets.

  • When are we going to wake up from this #BigSugar fueled food & #diabeticcoma? The fattest state in 1990 is still way thinner than the thinnest state in 2018! What has changed in the last 30 years? Besides, we are fatter & sicker than ever before?! #BigFood is poisoning our families & we’re allowing it. The industry cares nothing about your health & everything about profits, which they have PLENTY of & those deep pockets keep them & their lobbies so powerful. They easily manipulate data & continue to push these food “products” made in a lab & exploit your tastebuds & rob you & yours of your vitality. 
What is it going to take for a wake up call? Why do we say, “I would die for my children!” Yet, so few will choose to live a healthy lifestyle for them? We are allowing their health to be destroyed too. 
We should be angry, we should hold Big Sugar & Big Food accountable for their lies & deceptions. You are being hoodwinked & are paying dearly with the ultimate price, your health. *end rant*

  • Wait a minute before jumping on this. This is the idea is that if weight loss is the aim, people will tend to do better if they’ve bought into a diet concept. This can be something quite general such as low carb or low fat or something on the extreme of the spectrum, such as carnivore or fruitarians. I’ve said this quite a bit but I think diet can be quite religious in that people will swear by an approach even if the evidence doesn’t support is use in every scenario. “But it worked for me”, I’m sorry but the keto and vegan crowd are probably most guilty of this but these are a prime example of a group who have bought into a concept and gone with it.
.
As a standard, the ideal diet for weight loss should be safe, efficacious, healthy and nutritionally sufficient, culturally acceptable and economically affordable. It also needs to allow long-term compliance and maintenance of weight loss. If we think about this, there is never going to be one diet that ticks all of these boxes for every individual.
.
The term healthy in that paragraph is also quite an important notion. When looking at the overall scientific evidence about what constitutes a healthy diet it is quite consistent and straightforward: a healthy diet is a varied diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, whole-grain products and high-quality proteins and poor in added sugar, refined grains, and highly-processed foods. The amounts of each are very individual and have to take into account the above points plus an individual’s personal goals and preferences.
.
Long term compliance and maintenance is often the difficulty in any diet with this highlighted in the literature for both low carbohydrate and fat. Behaviour change is very important when it comes to weight loss maintenance with high self‐efficacy for exercise and self‐efficacy for weight management needed. From a dietary perspective James Krieger summarised this well by highlighting that satiety improves adherence with the characteristics of a high satiety diet; • High protein
• High fibre
• Low energy density
• Moderate palatability
• Reduced variety
• Reduced reward
I’ll do separate post on these points...

  • Since 1950....heart disease publications have pinpointed  sugar as the main problem for chronic disease - - not fat!!! That sugar is what damages the liver on a molecular level!!! Wow!!! Ironically this was on my tv this morning (even my tv was smart enough to think I would like these videos. They were in my “selected for me” videos..well, watching one, led to another & they referenced to YouTube videos) I watched one YouTube while cooking and I’m just amazed people are not aware! Who knew the top professionals from kraft, nabisco etc have met for the food industry & that they have a “bliss point” for added sugar that makes people crave more sugar!! It even discusses how Tobacco companies were held culpable and food tactics were much worse.  They have coined the sugar companies #bigsugar is termed after the #bigpharma - there are even “secret sugar documents” for a fake sugar research paper that was funded by the sugar industry.  The #consumerfreedom group even showed commercials of people taking ice cream away from kids to say its bad to take treats from kids!!! How rude 😡 Good watch & got me very hot 😤#ketofamilymeals #keto #nosugarchallenge #researchyourfood #nosugarnocarbs #lchf #lchflifestyle #eatfattolosefat

  • Do you ever feel like each person you know has a different perspective of who you are? 
I have been so many people. 
I want to introduce each person  to the me hiding under all of those insinuating labels, judgments and preconceived memories- the me behind the layers of armour and self preservation like makeup and metal and beauty. 
A reminder that: empathy without boundaries is only self destruction. —-*
All I know is that if I am outgrowing who I’ve been- 
I must be right on schedule•

What helps bring you back to your self when others place judgements and expectations upon you? •

Feeling reflective and inspired listening to Big Sugars “All Hell for a Basement” while trekking to Banff. -

  • Where did the time go? 
I swear that I don't know 
Turn and look behind 
What you think you're gonna find? 
Be careful what you say 
You said, the f-bomb too much today 
Scatter your seeds watch them grow
The wind come blow them away 
Round and round And round and round 
it goes 
Round and round And round and round 
I go 
Gotta get bolder before they get older Swear the face is laughin' over my shoulder 
Everything I got is all I have to give 
And I swear I won't get caught 
With no time left to live 
Round and round And round and round 
it goes 
Round and round And round and round 
I go 
Round and round And round and round 
it goes 
Where did the time go? 
DONT Look back in sorrow 
Gotta use my time today 
To straighten out my tomorrow 
Runnin' down the road 'Cause walking is much too slow 
And I won't have time to rest 'Till it's time to go

  • Thank you, #regina and @vicstavern ! You were lovely and hospitable, just as ever. It was a fun post-Roughriders-game concert for us; we hope you thought so, too. There was even a very gracious & large hare that made sure we were properly guided through the downtown backstreets to the backstage entrance! 🐇We much appreciated that!

The region’s most severe red tide in over a decade is shocking the shores of #SouthFlorida. This infestation of toxic algae has inundated beaches and waterways and it is killing manatees, turtles, fish and seabirds at alarming numbers. A significant contributor in the issue is nutrient pollution from agricultural run-off, correlated to the #BigSugar industry and years of management missteps with #LakeOkeechobee. This kind of devastation to wildlife is close to my heart. I was exasperated and heart-broken to see marine life killed by a red tide back in 2015 off of North America’s west coast in Alaska. Help me to put pressure on political forces to save South Florida waters; visit the link in my bio to sign a petition.  Top veterinarians we’re on location to address this tragic situation. None of the animals could be saved and sadly, they could only be euthanized.

  • It’s been almost a week, but we are at nearly 14,000 shares getting the word out about what is happening here in Florida. Southwest Florida is devastated from Naples all the way up the coast to Sarasota. There are hundreds of dead sea turtles, manatee, dolphins, whales and sea life. The beaches are littered with these beautiful bodies. Just horrific. Our Governor Rick Scott, has declared a state of emergency but it’s too little too late and he’s just a criminal. Whether it’s Democrat or Republican, both sides have sold out and taking money from big sugar which is a big cause of all of this. They have diverted the water from Lake Okeechobee and should’ve done something years ago. Now there is an epidemic. Big agriculture in the big oil is to blame too. And don’t forget Adam Putnam and the rest of them. It doesn’t matter what side. He thinks he’s running for governor? He should be running for cover before they arrest and take them to prison where he belongs. #BigSugar #ToxicAlgae #BlueGreenAlgae #Environment #GreenPeace #Eagle #Florida #Post #Eagle #SaveTheWhales #SaveThePeople #SaveTheAnimals #SaveTheCoast #SayFlorida

The beaches are littered with these beautiful bodies. Just horrific. Our Governor Rick Scott, has declared a state of emergency but it’s too little too late and he’s just a criminal. Whether it’s Democrat or Republican, both sides have sold out and taking money from big sugar which is a big cause of all of this. They have diverted the water from Lake Okeechobee and should’ve done something years ago. Now there is an epidemic. Big agriculture in the big oil is to blame too. And don’t forget Adam Putnam and the rest of them. It doesn’t matter what side. He thinks he’s running for governor? He should be running for cover before they arrest and take them to prison where he belongs. #BigSugar #ToxicAlgae #BlueGreenAlgae #Environment #GreenPeace #Eagle #Florida #Post #Eagle #SaveTheWhales #SaveThePeople #SaveTheAnimals #SaveTheCoast #SayFlorida
