Take Responsibility for Your Health – Don’t Trust Food Companies – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

July 23, 2019 14 By William Morgan


the food company’s actions is not a
conspiracy it’s a business hello
everyone welcome to Mind Blowing Health
and Wellness with Violet I’m Violet I’m
a psychologist and the reason I make
these videos is because I want people to
understand how their physical and mental
health come together to create their
overall feeling of well-being today I’m
actually going to tackle the idea that
big business isn’t necessarily
conspiring against us they’re engaging
in absolutely legal practices to sell
products and I want to talk about how
those practices end up affecting us
affecting the choices that we make and
affecting the things that we think about
ourselves and about the world when we
end up at a certain weight so first when
you take a product and I have a product
here in my hand I’m not it’s obviously
some type of nut butter I’m not gonna
say exactly which brand it is but when
you take a product like this and you
look at the label you’re gonna see some
very interesting information so first I
want to point out that in terms of
transparency this company is being
transparent enough in terms of what
they’re expected to tell us it’s all
written there so in order to make a
decision about whether or not you’re
going to eat this food it would be
important for you to understand what’s
actually in the food so and look at
those ingredients it would be important
for you to be able to look at them and
say I know what those ingredients are so
select roasted peanuts very obvious
soybean oil again seems quite obvious
corn maltodextrin that was a little bit
less obvious sugar very odd obvious
hydron Aidid vegetable oil they break
that down into cottonseed and rapeseed
again I know cotton plant is and I’m
assuming rapeseed is also from a plant
but I’d have to look that up then we
have salt very obvious mono and
diglycerides okay it goes on to say that
this contains peanuts so here’s the
thing what’s corn maltodextrin so let me
get my trusty computer here is I’m going
to look up what corn maltodextrin is I’m
gonna read it because I didn’t look this
up beforehand I grabbed that I came to
make this video so let’s see what it is
maltodextrin is a polysaccharide another
new word now polysaccharide we’re gonna
look that up in a second that is used as
a food additive it is produced from
starch maltodextrin is easily digestible
being absorbed as rapidly as glucose and
might be either moderately sweet or
almost flavorless so as I read further
it says maltodextrin is high on the
glycemic index meaning that it can cause
a spike in blood sugar what are we
learning here what we’re learning is
that that’s a second word on that label
that means sugar so let’s look at the
label again so let’s look at that root
word Lissa right when you look it up
what you learn is that mono and
diglycerides are imports from vegetable
base glycerol so basically they’re your
they’re getting these from vegetable
based oils what’s important for us to
take note here for those of you who are
following a ketogenic lifestyle is and
this product we now well I mean we knew
that when we read the label that we have
both high carb and high fat in the same
product which means it’s a product
that’s likely to be stored obviously a
high carbohydrate food is going to be a
food that’s gonna stimulate my dopamine
pathways which is a food that can cause
me to have addictive reactions to it and
then we get to the it was this a
conspiracy if they’re putting extra
sugar in my food so that I’m gonna be
addicted to it and you know here’s where
I question that word conspiracy you see
when a drug dealer sells me some cocaine
and I purchase it we don’t say well it
was a conspiracy against violet that he
sold her cocaine and she purchased it we
just say that violet made a mistake she
shouldn’t have bought that right as a
matter of fact we look at the drug
dealer as maybe not the best human being
but someone is trying to make money we
understand what he’s doing this is
addictive if I can get you to buy out
once I know you’re gonna come back and
buy it forever what’s really interesting
is that drug dealers well at least smart
drug dealers don’t take their own drug
and when you talk it to people in the
food industry the ones that kind of
understand
what is being done to food in order to
get people to buy it a lot of them don’t
buy their own product so I think we need
to take a page from their book if you’re
not buying your own product why would I
buy it if you’re eating Whole Foods but
you are shipping out cereals to me why
would I buy it
how do jug dealers get us hooked on
their drug a lot of the time you go to a
party and they offer to you for free and
again it’s not a conspiracy it’s just
smart marketing you give away you give
it away you give it away and then when
they can’t not have it they come running
to you and then you sell it well food
companies do the same thing they often
put foods on special that are highly
addictive and yet the fruits and
vegetables the meats hardly ever go on
special and when they go on special it’s
nowhere near the kind of special that
you get on the cereals it’s nowhere near
the special you get on bread I mean you
can get bread two for one I’ve never
seen steak two for one now the other
thing at least not in Canada I don’t
know about the states I can only talk
about Canada but the other thing that
food companies do is they give you free
stuff you I regularly in my
advertisement package that we get in
Canada because they said these things
I’ll called in Quebec called publice
acts and in the poopy sack it’s not
unusual to find cereal little boxes of
cereal little trial sizes of granola
bars chocolate bars like they give away
all manner of food in Canada because
they know that if you try it and you
like it you’re gonna go out and buy it
and then once they have you buying it
chances are you’ll buy it for years it’s
not different they want you to buy it so
you can become addicted so you can keep
eating it and it’s very open because
otherwise they wouldn’t be giving it to
you for free we need to keep in mind we
have been educated about staying away
from drugs we have been educated to
understand that drugs are harmful
dangerous will ruin your life and yet
people still take them people who were
educated before they started taking them
it’s not seen as a conspiracy if a 40
year old is
a party and takes a decision while sober
to try a drug so why is it considered a
conspiracy if a 40 year old decides to
try in a chocolate bar or try a new chip
or try it right a new cereal I have that
ability to look at that label and know
exactly what’s in it and know how it’s
gonna affect me so here’s where it
becomes interesting are we allowing
ourselves to really take the time to
understand how food affects us
isn’t that the bigger issue and that’s
not a conspiracy this is about now my
education we have been educated about
the harmful effects of sugar we’ve been
told that candy is not good for us since
we were little children and although we
were permitted to eat it we were told do
it in moderation but how many of us are
really keeping their sugar to a moderate
level how many of us have actually taken
the time to investigate what constitutes
sugar the thing that I find interesting
is not that we eat so much sugar the
thing that I find interesting is the
fact that we were educated on the fact
that sugar is not healthy and yet how
many adults again those forty year olds
do you see eating chocolate bars do you
see eating chips do you see eating candy
if we’ve been educated to know that
sugar is not good for us why do we allow
ourselves to eat cookies and cake and
ice cream again this is not a conspiracy
every person has a decision to make
about what they’re going to eat and when
I’m trying to help everybody to
understand is that as long as I call
this a conspiracy then I’m looking
outside of myself to the world to say
it’s your fault it’s your fault it’s
your fault when in reality I’m the one
choosing what I should be eating and
I’ve been choosing up until this point
to eat sugar so what choices are you
gonna make in your future are you gonna
continue to choose to eat sugar now that
you’re aware that we have 5 grams of
sugar floating in our bar in our blood
at any particular point in time
and that every time we raise that sugar
level our body needs to store and every
time that sugar level falls our body
needs to replace it which typically
means pushing you to eat are we really
gonna allow ourselves to be in the
situation where those fluctuations are
happening because we cause them because
when I eat extra sugar there are
fluctuations that start happening in my
blood sugar I’m I gonna allow myself to
cause my own situation because that’s
the question again that’s in front of
you are you taking the time to
understand how food affects you how
sugar affects you how fat affects you
and how protein affects you are you
taking the time to understand and then
apply it to the way that you eat on a
daily basis so what do we do about this
part of the answer is knowing all the
different ways that companies list sugar
all the chemical names for sugar like
this dextrose in most all the OSes like
lactose and maltose dextrans and all the
different ways that sugar sugar alcohols
and concentrated sugars are being listed
all the chemical names so that means
that I really do when I see something
listed on a label and I don’t know what
it means I should be looking at up
because when I look it up then I’m gonna
know what is it right and to know all
the different ways that fats can be
labeled because if I don’t know what’s
in the food I’m eating then I don’t know
how it’s affecting me it becomes really
important for you guys to take the time
to educate yourself about these things
because at the end of the day we get one
body and we can decide to fuel ourselves
with nutrient-dense quality food that’s
gonna help us to build the body we want
in the next few years or we can make the
decision to allow food companies to
process foods that we don’t need so that
we can eat these quick processed foods
save time in the short run and lose time
in the long run whether I lose it
through early death or I lose it through
my inability to live my later years the
way that I want to live
later years you want to be running
around with your grandchildren you want
to be taking vacations wherever you’d
like to take them so focus yourself on
living the life you want to live by
starting that today eat healthy and
understand to read your labels and
honestly I’ll give you another tip eat
as many foods as you can that don’t have
labels you don’t need to read what’s in
broccoli because it’s broccoli you don’t
need to read what’s in ham because it’s
ham try your best to eat foods that
don’t have labels and you’re gonna see
that it’s much easier to make sure that
you don’t accidentally eat extra sugar
or accidentally get addicted to
something I hope that this video helped
you to understand how you can take
better control of your life how you can
make sure that you are doing what you
need to do to build the body that you’re
gonna love to run around in in five
years 10 years 20 years I want to thank
you for watching Mind Blowing Health and
Wellness with Violet I can’t wait to
talk in the next video
