First cease poisoning yourself!
As we began our low carb journey this was our first axiom, and you know what?
It is absolutely true!
Month off drinking slashes risk of disease: Abstaining found to heal the liver and lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels
Drinkers should take a month off alcohol to prevent serious illness in later life, doctors warned yesterday.
They cited dramatic British research showing how abstention can heal the liver and lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Patients who gave up for four weeks were also at lower risk of developing cancer and type 2 diabetes.
The study is the second at the Royal Free hospital to uncover the huge benefits of staying off booze.
Let me make a couple of really obvious points that the genius Pointdexter’s never quite seem to be able to put together. Alcohol is just carbohydrate concentrate so you could just as easily say: abstaining from carbs will heal your liver and every other part of your bod!
How cool is that?
Also, it is worth noting that 70 years ago realistically the only way to get Fatty Liver Disease was through a studious application of alcohol, or a concerted overdosing of carbohydrate concentrate today we can achieve the same effect sans booze. ladies and Germs please meet our good friend:
AKA The Cola and HFC disease. And of course the very moment you cease ingesting the tasty tasty carbohydrate poisons, so long as you haven’t impaired the actual function of your organs, your body will leap to repair the damage. That was certainly Michelle and my experience.
But modern medicine, being based on a ‘sell you drugs’ model doesn’t like this because, well, there’s nothing to sell. The prescription should be buy the best food you can afford and eat as much fat as you can tolerate and cut carbs below twenty grams a day.
Instead the genius Pointdexter’s actually say this: Researchers said if there was a drug able to produce similar results to a month’s abstinence from alcohol then it would be a ‘multi-billion pound market’
It seems to me that some things are so simple the highly intelligent (and ever so slightly immoral) just cannot grasp them.
So let me spell it out for them: cut carbs, add fat, buy the best quality food you can afford, get healthy!
