Trick and Treat: How Healthy Eating Is Making Us Ill Do you practice healthy eating , consuming your five portions of fruit and vegetables per day and shunning fats in favour of complex carbohydrates Then you could be doing exactly what is most harmful to your health and helping to support one of the world s biggest and most lucrative industries the healthcare industryTrick and Treat asks the key questions has healthy eating coincided with a reduction in health problems and health spending who benefits from the effects of healthy eating what is the evidence to support the principles of healthy eating if healthy eating isn t healthy, what is Bringing together over a century of relevant findings, including classic papers and the latest research Barry Groves examines each of these issues in depth and concludes that there is a simple, evidence based alternative approach that will allow us all to take charge of our own health fantastic and thought provokingjust makes me realize how unquestioning I have been for 42 years but no longer, my eyes have been opened This book has so many important things to say Not just about weight loss, but also about health and about our health system.This book explains that while it is our responsibility to make healthy choices, to make a choice first we have to understand that there is a choice We need accurate information Unforunately the current food guidelines are based on myths and wishful thinking rather than science.The author goes on to say The health industry is one of the most lucrative in the world and s This book has so many important things to say Not just about weight loss, but also about health and about our health system.This book explains that while it is our responsibility to make healthy choices, to make a choice first we have to understand that there is a choice We need accurate information Unforunately the current food guidelines are based on myths and wishful thinking rather than science.The author goes on to say The health industry is one of the most lucrative in the world and so the focus has become wealth rather than health Many published drug studies are nothan infomercials Journals, doctors and academia have been bought by the drug companies and many patient ground that claim to be grass roots groups are in fact astroturf groups faux advocacy groups The NICE Guidelines in the UK are heavily lobbied by drug companies and not at all based on good science Guidelines by committee are disastrous, especially when vested interest groups are involved Mild symptoms of illness such as tiredness and aches and pains have been normalised in our society but they are not normal and are related to our current poor dietary advice and diets The pharmaceutical industry is not focused on cures but on treatments which can be sold to the patient over and over again Not only is this industry not the one to look to for real cures as so many still do , but they help the cures we do have often remain unused and ignored For example, type 2 diabetes has been curable since the 1970s, yet many patients are still just given drugs to take for life to minimise some of the symptoms of the condition Early detection of disease is being twisted and presented as it it is the same thing as preventing a disease, which of course it is not The early detection push is primarily about increasing the market for various drugs Don t donate to the big cancer and MS charities etc if they don t support prevention measures and instead focus on mere early detection.The author writes about diet, that The advice to cut down on sugar but to eat lots of grains makes no sense Low fat, high carb and low calorie diets are not healthy and not the best diet for weight loss High levels of glucose as with a high grain and high carb diet compromise the immune system Grains are not as high in nutrients as we have been led to believe and in fact these foods can leach nutrients from the body if not properly prepared The same is true of legumes Excess fibre can cause problems for some people and fibre from grains is not necessary Bran flakes are not a health food, but a faddish waste of money The bioavailablity of nutrients is much lower in raw produce compared to cooked Low salt diets have not been tested for safety and the scaremongering about salt is not scientific Healthy low carb diets must be high in fat and NOT protein The Paleo diet is very relevant today Good macronutrient ranges by calories are 10 15% carbs, 15 25% protein and 60 70% fat Saturated fat is a healthy traditional fat The ideal figure for carbs has been found to be around 50 75 grams a day, and this is the maximum a person with diabetes should eat This amount is a good one to start with and some people will feel best making it slightly lower or higher People that are very ill eg MS patients may do better starting with around 110 carbs a day before gradually going down to 70 grams a day Going too low or too low too fast may make such patientsill It is a good idea to lower your carbohydrate intake gradually, so as to make the transition less stressful for the body Going from a high carb diet to just 20 grams of carbs a day is too much of a shock, and not necessary It is not healthy to get glucose from protein long term It is wasteful and puts a strain on the liver and kidneys A BMI of 25 30 is still a healthy weight and may even be the healthiest weight range The idea that traditional foods are causing all our modern diseases is ludicrous.Important authors such as Abram Hoffer, Adele Davis, Weston A Price and Shanahan are quoted Good information is also given about the dangers of some vaccinations and soy products and of fluoride, why humans are not designed to run, why excessive exercise can be harmful and pain and injuries should not be ignored.The author has been following a low carb diet since 1962 so he really knows his stuff.The authors advice and views tally very well with my own I have a severe neurological disease with some similarities to MS and I have found that a very low carb diet of 20 grams or so of carbs a day, makes me feel unwell after a few months It seems like maybe my liver and kidneys cannot handle the extra strain I have felt so much better staying around the 50 75 gram mark It is also a farpleasant diet to eat by far This lower carb diet also greatly helps my hypoglycaemia symptoms, makes me feelsatisfied after meals and not starving hungry right after each meal due to blood sugar surges and has treated my PCOS as well I also do far better avoiding grains, legumes and dairy products too I am using this style of diet, along with other supplemental nutrients and detoxification methods, to slowly improve my severe neurological disease which had been slowly worsening forthan a decade.My only issue with this book is the authors assertion that we need to eat only 2 serves of fruit or vegetables daily and that claims we need 5 orare unsupportable and quite silly The sugar content of fruit is discussed, and the author claims that fruits and vegetables deliver few antioxidants But the issues of taste, enjoyment, vitamins and phytonutrients are not discussed at all What about the important detoxification aids and cancer fighting nutrients present in brassica vegetables What about all the folate and other nutrients in leafy greens What about all the bioflavanoids present in foods like capsicums None of this is even mentioned It is a very strange part of the book, not remotely up to the standard of the rest of the book This section is so poorly done it risks detracting people from the rest of the book, which is of a high standard and well reasoned, argued and researched Best to just skip the anti vegetable chapter I think.This one quibble aside plus the lack of good basic supplementation information , this is a wonderful book on diet and a great achievement by the author This book is just as well written and researched as his book on the dangers of fluoride in our water supply, the first book I read by this author That book is well worth a read as well.To readabout why we need to eat the traditional foods we evolved to eat and why proper nutrition is so important to health and treating disease books such as Deep Nutrition and Primal Body Primal Mind are excellent extra reading These are two of the most important books there are for anyone dealing with serious disease along with Detoxify or Die and any of the high quality vitamin C books by Dr Thomas Levy and others.A great quote from this book There is no nonsense so arrant that it cannot be made the creed of the vast majority by adequate governmental action Bertrand Russell.Jodi Bassett, The Hummingbirds Foundation for M.E HFME Trick and Treat is not a diet book It is a book about what we are told to eat and what is really good for our health It is a book about the modern healthy diet and all the business around health and food.To sum up Barry Groves ideas, he states that we should eat muchanimal fat through meat, eggs, butter, full fat milk etc and cut down the carbs to a minimum To prove his point, he goes through a large variety of modern diseases diabetes, cancer, heart attacks, alzeimer s and ex Trick and Treat is not a diet book It is a book about what we are told to eat and what is really good for our health It is a book about the

carbs to a minimum To prove his point, he goes through a large variety of modern diseases diabetes, cancer, heart attacks, alzeimer s and explains the relation between these and our modern diet, with studies to support his claims.The amount of research and documentation inside this book is just incredible, but at the same time it is quite easy to read Although it is hard to figure out the truth between all these diet healthy food books, this one is quite convincing as it appeals to both common sense and hard evidence It also shows how we are conditioned to believe what we are told without questioning it.I am not sure if I agree completely with everything Barry Groves states in here, but it really gives a good starting point to really form a personal opinion about what we pass our lips I would recommend any person concerned with their health to read this book I m finding it hard to go along with Mr Grove s assertion that we don t really need to eat fruit I have seen him state in other articles that it s a myth that fruit is full of vitamins and minerals I don t even eat much fruit, my fruit bowl currently contains my ipod, camera and a nest of computer leads, so I don t know why this worries me so much, but it just doesn t sit right with me There is a lot in this book to think about, ranging from corruption in the medical drug industry to pointin I m finding it hard to go

about, ranging from corruption in the medical drug industry to pointing out that bran was a worthless by product of the milling process until we were conned into eating it What a handy and profitable way to dispose of it.Barry Groves is into a low carb high fat diet but he explains it so well and cites so much research it makes sense Even so, my last forray into the low carb world left me so depressed I m reluctant to go there again Maybe when I understand the bookI can adjust my diet appropriately
