60 Years of Bad Nutrition: “Tips for Healthy Weight Loss”

May 3, 2014 by

My name is Alex Beckis but, you may well ask, who am I to write with authority about health and fitness, nutrition, or tips for weight loss? My only claim to fame is that I am a published author and an accomplished researcher. I have a number of books and an author page on Amazon.com. I have a blog and a Facebook page where I publish articles about healthy nutrition and the best way to lose weight. Most recently, I have found a passion in writing about the dreadful practices that now prevail in our industrialized food supply chain and how these practices have caused an obesity epidemic and the unnecessary rise of all our modern day diseases.

Home cooking has, during the last 60 years, largely been replaced by industrialized cooking and made “unfashionable” by clever advertising campaigns. The end result is the unhealthy packaged foods that fill our supermarket shelves and fast-food outlets using equally bad ingredients.

I am currently researching and writing a book that most likely will be titled The Adulteration of Our Food Supplies: “The Ugly Side of Profiteering”.

The answer to these maladies, incumbent on those of us interested in preserving our health and well being, is a healthy eating plan coupled with some physical activity.

The fastest growing eating plan is without doubt the Paleo Diet. The biggest problem with Paleo is the unfortunate names assigned to it. References to a Caveman Diet or Stone Age Diet are at best misleading. Nobody wants to turn the clock back to our Stone Age. Paleo is better known as the paleolithic nutrition and is scientifically based. It represents the food choices to which our human digestive system is genetically based. For example, a large majority of people today get no less than 67% of their food intake from wheat, corn and soy products. Our Paleolithic humans, on the other hand, only obtained 1-2% of their food from wild grains. Agricultural based nutrition has only existed for a duration less than 5% of human existence and human biochemistry and physiology has simply not had time to adjust to modern day agriculture.

But it gets worse, a lot worse. Combined with excessive consumption of unhealthy sugar (fructose), industrialized cooking practices that use chemicals, preservatives and toxic substances, has given rise to an unprecedented rise in diseases like diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure and eventually the dreaded Alzheimer’s and Parkinson diseases. The can all be avoided by simply choosing a healthy eating plan.
