I had no idea how much information I would find.
Just from googling some ingredients from a diet plan.
I have learned more in the last 4 hours than I have in a long time.
I am even more disgusted with Medifast.
You just sprinkle some vitamins and minerals on stuff, wrap it in a wrapper, put it in a box and you call it healthy?
And I think what grieves me most is how this so called "healthy" diet is spreading like wild fire in the "church".
Christians wake up!
Just because it is "in" the "church" doesn't mean it's ok.
It's really not.
Take the blinders off.
The blinders are killing you.
But wait, your say.
Medifast doesn't have MSG.
There is only one Medifast product that claims to have MSG- the Cream of Tomato soup.
But there are SO many hidden sources of MSG in our food!
Here is another health issue I did not know about until looking into this.
And there is more. Lots of intestinal health problems are directly correlated to MSG consumption.
Here is a list of ingredients that either have MSG or may have MSG in them but are not labeled as such. I think you will be quite surprised!
You're stimulating all of the glutamate receptors.
If they have reflux, it makes that a lot worse.
The thing about the cardiac conduction system glutamate receptors is this may explain the rise in sudden cardiac death.
You will find quite a few.
That is a lot of MSG if you ask me!
Did you notice another trend?
Every single "food" product listed has soy.
Almost all have acesulfame potassium (except a few of the snacky ones- but don't fret.....they have enough yeast to counteract any missing poison!)
Did you know that:
exposure to methylene chloride for long periods of
time may lead to such as:
Acesulfame potassium may also increase the appetite,
Just in case you forgot what he said about soy here it is again:
"The worst of the things they're doing are the soy extracts. Soybeans, naturally, have one of the highest glutamate levels of any of the plant products. When you hydrolyze it, you release the glutamate, and the soy protein isolates."
All in the name of "health"
