Genetics and Your Health

When it comes to your health, most "inheritance" is behavior learned from parents.

The Real Cause of Obesity

The real cause of obesity is an abundance of sugars, grains and other high carbohydrate foods. These are converted to sugars in the body.

A diet high in cheap, starchy, sugary, processed foods is the quickest way to become obese.

Eating too many carbohydrates causes your insulin levels to rise, sending your body a hormonal message telling it to store fat, while holding on to the fat that is already there. So not only will excess carbohydrates make you fat, they will also make you stay fat. Limiting sugar, grains and other high-carb foods is crucial to moderating this insulin response.

Eighty percent of your ability to reduce excess body fat is determined by what you eat. The other twenty percent depends on proper exercise, lifestyle habits and genetic factors.

The Concept of Exercise

The most important concept about exercise when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off: Treat it like a drug that must be precisely prescribed to do the most good.

And that usually requires far more intensity than the occasional walk around the block.

Emotions - Are They Trustworthy?

Guard against always discerning truth through your emotions. They're not always trustworthy!

You've programmed your brain to feel comfortable in certain situations. And what feels good and comfortable is not always what is best - or the truth.

If you fall into the trap of feeling a teaching that doesn't feel right is error, your ability to receive truth has been limited. - Dr. Bill Gillham
