Your guide to healthier living.

OK, so I would tell you to really control your consumption of wine and beer in the first place… but… I hate that roundup has made it into them!  According to tie FOX News Report, it is a big problem.

https://www.foxnews.com/health/ingredient-in-roundup-weed-killer-found-in-popular-beers-and-wine-researchers-say

If you aren’t aware, Monsanto was on the wrong side of a $289M award to a man who claimed his cancer was caused by exposure to round-up back in August.    This case has opened the door… not only to those who would say that Monsanto caused their cancer, but also to those who would say that they had no idea they were involved with a cancer causing agent.  Round up is obviously a dangerous product, as it kills your weeds with one little spray on the green.  Any product that has that level of killing needs to be considered with great caution.


Which brings up the question, how is it possible that this product has shown up in our beer and wine too now?  I have told the story many times, of the soy farms that extend through the area in central New York, between the finger lakes.  Beautiful lush fields of GMO soy, all ready for a plane to crop dust them with roundup (if you weren’t aware, GMO soy is known as roundup ready soy because it withstands roundup,  leaving everything around it dead, except for the soy).  The problem with these fields of soy, is that this area of the finger lakes is known for its wine trail, with literally hundreds of wineries within a couple hundred square miles.   Crop dusting easily spreads this deadly little chemical to neighboring fields, and into the water table.

From the FOX News Article:

Though the levels of glyphosate in the drinks tested aren’t necessarily dangerous, the World Health Organization said in a 2015 report that the pesticide is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” In 2017, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment announced glyphosate “would be added to the list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer.”…

…The only brand that had no detectable traces of glyphosate was Peak Beer, the study found.

The wine with the highest glyphosate levels was Sutter Home with 51 parts per billion (ppb) and the beer with the highest levels was Tsingtao Beer with 49.7 ppb.

“Conventional brands” such as Coors and Miller Lite all had glyphosate levels of at least 25 ppb and even organic drinks were susceptible, such as the Samuel Smith Organic Lager with 5.7 ppb.

However, none of the levels exceeded the Environmental Protection Agency’s risk tolerance for beverages.

“No matter the efforts of brewers and vintners, we found that it is incredibly difficult to avoid the troubling reality that consumers will likely drink glyphosate at every happy hour and backyard barbecue around the country,” Kara Cook-Schultz, of the U.S. PIRG Education Fund, who authored the study told USA TODAY.

I find it disturbing.  Not because I completely disagree with the EPA’s risk tolerance.  But I completely disagree with disregarding it.  The potential combination of sources from many different products over the course of a day could easily add up to too much.  My first recommendation would be that you avoid all SOY in products not labeled as non-GMO as those will all carry levels of roundup.

We all need a path, or a plan to be healthy.  At the end of one’s life, there are very common references that occur if you are cognizant that the end is coming, and you have time to reflect.  One of the very common things said by those at that moment in their life, is that they regret having spent their hard-earned retirement in ill health (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5076725/What-people-say-die.html)

Makes sense doesn’t it, that one of your most likely regrets will be not having health.  Or if you don’t think health is possible, not having spent your healthy moments in life doing things you love.  Regardless of how you look at it, the point is that health becomes the most important thing in your life.  Even those who feel as though they have satisfied a mission and a purpose, will commonly feel as though their work wasn’t quite done.  It is why I preach, not teach… preach that health is the most important thing in your life to manage.  Because through that you will find opportunity to win for the purpose of your mission.  To win for the other things that matter… don’t make health your idol, make health your means to stay committed to what should be a priority.  Such as God and Family.

So how do you do that?  How do you make a plan for health?  The first thing anybody needs to do in order to have a plan to be healthy, is to begin identifying the obvious things you do that take health away from you.  Let me give you examples.

  1. You watch TV when you actually could force yourself to work out (which matters if you aren’t working out).

  2. You use the excuse that you have no time, to buy fast food.

  3. You drink too much garbage, without having water.  You Have to HAVE water.

  4.  You think posture is only for looks… which leads your spine and spinal cord to degenerate.

There are more, but you should be able to stay busy working on these for a long time.

So if you take up this plan of action, I wonder… how committed will you be?  Have you seen my sign?  My commitments are greater than my feelings in this moment?  Life is full of opportunities to screw up, and we all do it.  We screw up.  But how important is your health?  Will you regret your choices on your death bed, or will you say that you lived life to the fullest as well as the longest.  At least the longest as it relates to how your choices played into it.

So take that phrase with you, my commitments are greater than my feelings in this moment.  And go out into the world and win.

Here you will find plenty of inspiration if you search the videos on these facebook pages!

The time is now, we need to be serious and be committed, and we need to be all these things that make us more committed.  Do you see a trend here?  Commitment is just about all that matters in anybody’s attempt at keto, and this is the keto from before keto, the keto from after Atkins, that we have been teaching for nearly a decade.

No Sugar No Grains No Legumes No Root Vegetables No Fruit Besides a Handful of Berries a day

These are the rules, the ones that I KNOW will alter your body chemistry, and will break you from the chains of addiction.  Addiction to sugar.  Not sweetness, but blood sugar, the thing that jumps into your brain, releases dopamine and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  The thing that comes from eating the potato chips while watching the game, or the tortilla chips before your healthy salad.  The thing that comes from your english muffin, or your sweet potato fries… or perhaps it is your banana that you use to get the rush.  It might be that you like eating a pile of beans, or just the rice… I don’t know what you use to do it, but something you are eating is feeding your sugar addiction.  Something is kicking your butt in the most comforting way, and I want to kill it.

You wonder if you need to be concerned?
