Just because someone shops for food in a “health store” doesn’t mean that what he’s putting into his mouth is healthy.
Two days ago I wrote about soy – in all its forms and guises. It’s touted as somehow healthy – but I think not. And based on the emails I received, many people are in agreement. Their agreement, by the way, is based on real life experience.
Breast cancer in women. Decreased libido in men. And so on.
Remember, soy has worked its way into the food chain in a major way. It’s not just soy milk, or tofu, or green beans, or soy flour you need to be concerned about.
It’s also soy lecithin and soy bean oil.
Many frozen foods are cooked in soy bean oil, even in restaurants that serve health conscious food.
A few months back I asked the waitress at a local breakfast joint I frequent what oil they use for their
eggs. She said, “We use butter.”
“Very good,” I replied. “But what about the potatoes?”
“I’m not sure,” she said. “They come to us already done, all we do is put them on the grill and warm them up.”
“Hmmm, well could you check for me how the spuds come before you put them on the grill?”
“Sure,” she said.
A minute later she returned to tell me they were cooked in “soy bean oil” before they were packaged and shipped.
Men, if you’ve put on extra fat and you’re doing “everything” to get rid of it – then look again. Read your labels on every thing you have in your home – or everything you’re about ready to buy. And don’t be afraid to ask the waitress at a restaurant what oil your food was cooked in.
Most of the time you’ll hear, “Uh, just vegetable oil.” Or “just canola oil.”
When I hear this I say, “Uh, okay, let me find something else to eat.”
I don’t want vegetable oil, corn oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, margarine, soy bean oil, cottonseed oil and so on in my body.
You may think this extreme – but all of these oils are toxic to the body. Meanwhile, there’s one oil that was bashed to smithereens by the media for years- and this one oil is one of only four that I recommend.
Get it in your body and you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel – as well as how quickly your health changes for the better.

Now, there are many other so-called health foods that you need to be aware of in the health food store.
Agave nectar is one of them. If you think all you’ve got to do is avoid artificial sweeteners as well as refined sugar – think again.
Not only do you want to avoid the above, plus high fructose corn syrup – but the same goes for agave.
And let me tell you, they toss this junk into a ton of health bars – including those that are made from “raw foods.” Agave nectar is worse for you than HFCS – yet it’s being touted as a gift from the gods.
When it comes to milk, you already know how I feel about soy – so that’s out.
But many of you wrote to ask what I thought about rice milk and almond milk. I think both are FAR, FAR better than soy. I enjoy almond milk – at the same time I still read the label on the carton before I buy.
Yes, I realize that the above may sound like you have to be a food cop in your own home. Well, look at the alternatives. If you think someone else is looking out for you when your food is prepared, think again.
More on this in future installments of this email.
In the interim, never assume that “health food” is good for you. A lot of it is just as bad, if not worse, than what you’ll find in the big chain supermarkets.
