Crazy nutrition advice from the “experts” can make and keep you crazy!
Millions more women than men have thyroid problems, but men have thyroid conditions too, so information like I read in the following article is harmful.
Just because a person works out, feels pretty good and looks good (from all that working out!), doesn’t mean they’re healthy. And, for men, who have less apparent, raging symptoms than we women do and don’t go to the doctor as much, make them more at risk for no one noticing, even themselves, that they have a problem.
MEN’S HEALTH MAGAZINE GIVES UNHEALTHY ADVICE
I came across an article online in a men’s health and fitness magazine (one of the most popular) about food cravings. I’m still picking my jaw up off the floor.
Let’s start with Adam Drewnowski, Ph.D., director of the nutritional-sciences program at the University of Washington who says that, “Cravings can have different triggers—stress, depression, hormones—and while there are some cravings you can indulge, there are others that you shouldn’t.”
WHAT ABOUT SUGAR AND ADDITIVES?
Okay, this information is tame and correct, but Dr. Drewnowski decidedly didn’t mention that cravings are triggered by eating foods that are laced with sugar and other man-made addictive additives that keep you wanting more, even when you know better.
Now for the jaw dropping part.
I’ll only go into the second section of this article (there are several sections) as I can’t read any more “educated information” like this and not have my head explode! Now remember, this being a men’s magazine there are plenty of beefed up bodies in the side bars showing how to get buff and fit and ripped, yet here’s the next page of sage advice about how to deal with morning cravings for your favorite sugary junk foods.
“Give in—just don’t go overboard. ‘It’s fine to eat a doughnut or a bowl of sweetened cereal in the morning, as long as you also eat some high-protein food with it,” says Laura A. Lees, Psy.D., a Wisconsin-based eating-disorders specialist. Studies show that protein keeps your appetite in check longer than carbohydrates or fat can. So go ahead and eat a bowl of Cap’n Crunch, but combine it with a couple of slices of Canadian bacon or a small block of cheese.”
WHAT? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I’m screaming!
If you have a thyroid problem, please don’t listen to these people! You (we) can’t afford to eat “junk” food that kicks in our inflammation and keeps our immune system compromised. Even if you don’t have a thyroid problem, same advice!
MEN. GET SMART!
Men, I’m truly sorry that “they” are doing it to you too – leading you astray. Women get this bad advice all the time, have for decades. You’ve seen them, the women’s magazines and tabloids in the grocery check out lane showing buff, beautiful, slender bikini-bodies with a big honkin’ slice of chocolate cake next to it and title for a recipe for the best diet ‘something’ ever while you’re going to lose 20lbs by summer! Wha?
Please wake up. Please don’t believe this hogwash! It’s a trap and a game and I want you to stop playing it right now!
The more you eat the same old foods that keep kicking in the addiction in your body and brain to “crave” more, you’re, well, up the creek without a paddle ( a nice way to say that.)
If you’re one of the many men in the statistics of millions with a thyroid condition I want to help you.
