Re: The importance of metabolism in health.


So,,, to explain metabolism slightly differently:

Firstly, Metabolism is the engine of the soul - without it, the soul leaves, the body dies. Two things are needed by the metabolism, in large amounts... The first, Salt, should be replenished by the foods we eat, failing that, use sparingly on foods. The second is sugar, in very large amounts - everything that we eat supports the metabolism in different ways, but the most important things are carbohydrates because they turn, either immediately or eventually, into the glucose sugar we need to fuel the metabolism.

Salt levels are effected by water intake, be it in drinks, or as water - too much and we dilute the salt, that can cause coma and death. Too much water will indeed kill. We store our salt within the cells of the body, and the metabolism regulates the amounts of salt sent to the cells, and sent to the bladder. Too much liquid will mess with the salt side of the metabolism, and needs reducing - this should be eventual, as the brain interferes with the liquid needs by becoming addicted to things like coffee - something that actually should never be drunk. The nutrients in coffee could have a book written to warn about them. Two cups is too much in two hours, let alone at breakfast.

Medical science, being mainly wrong at most times, believes that we need to consume the best part of a gallon of liquid a day - this is not correct at all - if you do that, you will water down the cellular saline liquids, and do damage - as displayed by clear urine - urine is not supposed to clear, however many times doctors say it should be - look at every other mammal on earth (remember, we are not special, we are mammals) and notice that the urine is yellow - that is pee colour. If it is clear, this signifies too much liquid has diluted the cellular saline liquids and the kidneys obeyed the metabolic order to remove minerals from the urine, and bung it into the cells. If urine is clear all the time, there are no minerals the body can morph into usable salt, and the body becomes ill.. It may function ill, but ill it most certainly is.

That is salt - too much liquid dilutes it.. NOT GOOD.

Now on to sugar...

Sugar, as glucose, is the most important thing in the world. EVERYTHING within the body is influenced by it. Not just some things, EVERYTHING.

For this reason, we need to regulate the amount, and levels of carbohydrates we present to the metabolism to convert to glucose.

On rising, a fast carb meal should be eaten within 45 minutes, to restart the metabolism after sleeping. Waiting too long puts it into starvation mode, and everything you eat is converted not to glucose, but to fat. This puts you into the phase of hypoglycaemia where chaos reigns.. Eating the fast carb meal gets glucose to the metabolism immediately, literally within seconds.. This boosts the fuel levels to good, and it will last about 40 minutes, then decline. If you consumed some slow carbs as well, they will start converting at about this time, to top up the fuel again. This leaves you good to go on for a total of about two and a half hours. Eating more to start off with does not help as the hyperglycaemic level of too much glucose is nearly as bad as the hypo level.

Eating fast carbs, with slow carbs, along with proteins and fats throughout the day, in small amounts, keeps your fuel gauge level.


Hypoglycaemia:

Big word; meaning low sugar in the blood. really meaning very low fuel, causing the metabolism to weaken.

Side effects of hypoglycaemia - A myriad of problems can be directly linked to low blood sugar; diabetes, depression, despair, anaemia, urinary problems, heart problems, stubborn weight gain, or inability to gain weight, sickly body, low oestrogen levels, or inappropriate oestrogen levels, headaches, lethargy, then eventually coma, and death. This is only a listing of the more common problems. There are many more...

Hyperglycaemia:

Big word meaning too high blood sugar. Also causes the metabolism to weaken, but in a different way.

Side effects of hyperglycaemia: - Anger, frustration, violent tempers, screaming fits, inability to sleep or rest, or keep still, annoyed with everything, headaches, damaging blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, coma and death. Again only a few of them - you get the picture, either are really bad.

Many people think that type two diabetes is caused by too high a level of blood sugar - but it actually is caused by the crash into hypoglycaemia, after the sugar [sign in to see URL] physiology of that action is complicated - I can explain it fully, but it takes a while, and probably will fly over the heads of most people.

Depression from low blood sugar is the most dangerous aspect of the bouncing levels - often a depressed person things that drugs are a good way of dealing with it, when a bottle of coca-cola is all they need. Not the crappy American sort, the good sugary Mexican sort. When depressed next, drink a very sugary drink, and you will become level within minutes. I have successfully stopped suicides by offering high glucose candy to the intended suicide - they are often touched by the kind effort, and will take it.. They eat it, and don't want to kill themselves any more. Most suicides are depressed, mainly by low blood sugar, and could be saved by a bottle of Mexican pop.

About food...

We need food, that is obvious, but how much?

Sufficient to power the metabolism.

That is the relevant truth, to power the metabolism - this is not something that we can top off in the morning, then go all day without doing anything. That will not work...

Eat smaller meals, and smaller still snacks, all day long, to keep the metabolism in the fat burning zone...

Re: The importance of metabolism in health.


So, this morning instead of my leisurely 2 cups of coffee first thing, then cold [sign in to see URL] had old fashioned cooked oatmeal, with sliced strawberries and a bit of creme and brown sugar.

Am I getting close to what is right?

Perfect - well balanced, and sustainable - now provided a couple of hours later you stoked up with a balanced snack, etc, etc, you are set. I love this way of eating - never hungry, and other than avoiding the poly oils (originally developed as machine oil then fuel oil for diesel engines) there is a massive choice of foods. The bonus being that along with improved health, weight loss occurs.

I enjoy oatmeal. And I've been having organic yogurt with nectarines and almonds for lunch a few times now. It feels very good.

YEAH.... emoticon and I did...
Here is a question for [sign in to see URL] Wednesday through Friday at least. My schedule is going to be totally messed up.
But one thing will always be the same, just at a different time. Breakfast. Can I take that same oatmeal, strawberries, creme and brown sugar. And not only eat a bowl of [sign in to see URL] perhaps 2 slices of bacon? I need something with protein to last [sign in to see URL] knows when? emoticon

Re: The importance of metabolism in health.


yes. Quite simply having a couple of slices is fine, as is a beefburger, or an egg or two, or slice of ham.. Take something fast along with you, just to boost things up, then eat some slow veg or berries to keep up the flow.

When I am away from home, I will buy some strawberries or such, maybe some cheese, and often a Twix or Kit-kat to use as the fast with the berries - keeps me in the glow, so to speak.

Metabolism can be 'checked' with a thermometer - if it is working well, you will be over 98.5, if not, you will be lower. Don't panic or fret, just up the fast carbs and balance them with slows and protein later.. I use cheese when I am out, and keep about 99˚ most of the day.

Perfect!! That is my plan...
The hospital had a cafeteria, not sure what they have there. But at least I'm going in armed with some new knowledge.
Eating right should help with some of the anxiety of being there was well....
I tend to run hot...when I am at the docs and they take my temp I'm always right about [sign in to see URL] times been at 100.
My son has run about 100-101 ever since he was a [sign in to see URL] were constantly making me worry about a possible fever. He never had [sign in to see URL] to this [sign in to see URL]'s just norm for him. emoticon

Folk who run hot could possibly get to 102˚ with a perfectly working metabolism - that would definitely get the doctors squawking.
