Have you ever been too busy to eat properly so you grab some fast food, a fruit juice drink or an energy bar?
Well, you just made a bad situation worse by choosing the easy, most convenient option. That decision to eat nutrient deficient food will actually make you hungrier when your sugar crashes soon after eating or drinking what I call carbage.
There is an easy solution to your time poor dilemma.
When you eat optimally in a great environment then you will have Top . Yes, your food and your environment is that important.
Here’s My Top 7 Ways to Avoid Bad Food Decisions
- Eat a Great Breakfast like 5 organic virgin coconut oil fried eggs, a side of kimchi, some sardines in olive oil and a black coffee or tea. Would you be hungry after eating this Primed breakfast? How do you feel when you eat sugar food like pandesal, pancit, breakfast cereal etc.? It does fill you up and satisfy you. Eat quality nutrition and you will be more satisfied and not make yourself hungry. My record for eating eggs is 20. My cholesterol is excellent.
2. Plan Ahead and bring some bananas, nuts, cans of sardines etc. with you when travelling. So, you are less hungry from a huge breakfast but if you do get hungry you have some healthy supplies. It is easy when you think ahead.

5. Cholesterol Craziness
When did heart disease start getting out of control? Precisely when society switched from stable, saturated fats to vegetable and seed oils. This switch came via the saturated fat and cholesterol scare prompted by Ancel Keys and the bogus lipid hypothesis, which purported to link saturated fat and high cholesterol with heart disease.
That myth has been thoroughly debunked, yet we’re still suffering the consequences of the scare. In fact, it’s still being pushed today by Big Agriculture — the people who produce these oils — and government institutions who are funded by Big Agriculture.
The craziness is that vegetable oils are promoted as improving cholesterol. What vegetable oils do in many cases is reduce total cholesterol numbers. What nobody told you is that total cholesterol numbers are meaningless. 75% of heart attack patients have a lipid panel that does not indicate high risk for heart attack. Relying on total cholesterol numbers (which is the standard panel) is worse than flipping a coin.
So, what does matter? The size and type of cholesterol is what matters. And while vegetable oils may lower total cholesterol, they skew the size and type of the particles in the wrong direction. If you want more information on understanding cholesterol in clear terms, check out my podcast interview with Jimmy Moore about his new BOOK, Cholesterol Clarity.
The need to know information is this: if your goal is a healthy heart, vegetable oils are literally killing you.

2. Lopsided Omega-6 to Omega-3 Ratios
We all know how important it is to reduce inflammation.
One way is to consume fats that are considered high in omega-3s (O3) rather than high doses of omega-6s (O6) because O3s have the unique ability to calm the flames of systemic inflammation. But that’s not the whole story.
What matters most is our ratio of O3 fats to O6 fats. The optimal ratio is 1 to 1. Many Americans — due to the overconsumption of O6 fats — are hovering around the 30:1 mark.
Vegetable and seed oils are mostly comprised of O6 fats. Even Canola Oil, which is touted as “heart healthy” and “packed with O3 fats” is a poor choice because the O3 fats in Canola Oil are typically rancid by the time you consume them.

Are Vegetable Oils Bad for You?
A better question might be: “Did you know vegetable oils (actually seed oils) are not fit for human consumption?”
From a Recent Primed Couple:
“Hey Chad .. Mary accidentely consumed vegatable oil last night … and was sick for the entire night. 😦
Looks like both of our bodies are responding strongly when we re-introduce poison into our systems.”
