Ted.com video alert: Sandra Aamodt: Why dieting doesn't usually work.
In the US, 80% of girls have been on a diet by the time they're 10 years old. In this honest, raw talk, neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt uses her personal story to frame an important lesson about how our brains manage our bodies, as she explores the science behind why dieting not only doesn't work, but is likely to do more harm than good. She suggests ideas for how to live a less diet-obsessed life, intuitively.
Fat Burning Recipes to Die for!
Now, the last thing I could ever be called is a “conspiracy theorist” but you might think otherwise after reading what I have to say about the USDA Food Pyramid. I’m certainly not trying to turn this diet into a political debate, but the fact is, the USDA plays an important roll in the economy of our country. And what goes into the food pyramid will, in turn, dictate how much money we spend on certain food products.
Take a look at the USDA Food Pyramid that has shaped the way most American eat over the past few decades. As you can see, our own government recommends we get over 2/3 of our daily nutrition from carbohydrate laden foods (bread, rice, pasta, fruits and vegetables) and only about 20% of our food from protein sources—the primary nutrient that keeps us alive! It’s no wonder that nearly 50% of the US population is considered to be overweight!
I think the Harvard School of Public Health said it best in their famed article, What Should You Really Eat?
Here’s an interesting excerpt:
In the children’s book Who Built the Pyramid? Different people take credit for building the once-grand pyramid of Senwosret. King Senwosret, of course, claims the honor. But so does his architect, the quarry master, the stonecutters, slaves, and the boys who carried water to the workers.
The USDA’s MyPyramid also had many builders. Some are obvious—USDA scientists, nutrition experts, staff members, and consultants. Others aren’t. Intense lobbying efforts from a variety of food industries also helped shape the pyramid.
According to federal regulations, the panel that writes the dietary guidelines must include nutrition experts who are leaders in pediatrics, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and public health.
Selecting the panelists is no easy task, and is subject to intense lobbying from organizations such as the National Dairy Council, United Fresh Fruit and Vegetable As-sociation, Soft Drink Association, American Meat Institute, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and Wheat Foods Council.
Fiber is actually a carbohydrate but I felt the need to devote a specific section to fiber because of the misinformation surrounding it. In most low-carb diets, fiber carbohydrates are not counted as “dangerous” weight-gaining carbohydrates.
This is because fiber cannot be digested by the human body. Since fiber is not digested by the body, it does not create a rapid rise in blood sugar like other carbohydrates.
But beware! There are two schools of thought on fiber. While modern medicine encourages a diet high in fiber, there are other medical researchers that state too much fiber is the cause of numerous diseases and irregularities such as constipation, IBS, Chron’s disease, colon cancer and others.
If you’d like to see some of the latest research on fiber and how it may be causing irreparable damage to your body, I strongly encourage you to visit www.GutSense.org.
Now, that being said about fiber...in normal doses, fiber is not going to create any complications for you. However, you should be sure to get your fiber from vegetables and salad greens rather than forcing yourself to get 30 grams per day as recommended by the mainstream medical community.
If you are concerned about constipation, some researchers believe that constipation itself is caused by too much fiber in the diet. Increasing your water intake during this diet is essential to good health, proper kidney functioning...and it has remarkable effects on relieving constipation.

After my 3rd kid, I was a size 6-8 (depending on my dinner). I really tried everything:
My After weight loss picture was taken at the beginning of this year and I am 45 years old (2015). I am a US size 2-4 now. I don't think I will ever be a size 0 again in this lifetime & be able to slip on a dress without even unzipping it (like in the good ole days... never mind, there is always my next life.)
In case you think I have skinny Chinese genes, nope, my grandfather had pants 3 normal-sized guys could get into. My mother used to horrify me with stories of how my aunt's 20 inch waist before marriage became 20 inch thighs after her 4 kids. I was determined not to walk down that scary path of permanently being called 'Auntie' by all and sundry.
