Banting diet is half right

Pam West

The most important factor when it comes to food is to choose that food which has the most nutrients, which are also bioavailable. Your body uses nutrients in food for proper function, including cellular repair.

Proteins are used for tissue repair and to make important substances such as enzymes that are needed for metabolic processes, such as digestion and on a smaller scale, cellular reproduction and replenishment. 

Therefore protein is the number 1 food requirement. If your diet is primarily protein based, optimal kidney function is essential to remove the metabolic residue of protein breakdown. Our Natrurinec specifically works for efficient removal of these waste products, such as uric acid, and is a valuable addition to Natru for Slimmers for optimal weight loss.

The sole purpose of carbohydrates is to supply easily accessible energy for day to day cellular and bodily activity. Carbohydrate foods in their natural form, also contain a lot of vitamins and minerals that may not be found in high-protein foods, such as vitamin C and silica. Vegetables and fruit provide essential vitamins, minerals and fibre, so they are important in your diet. However, refined white carbohydrate foods must be avoided (unless under special needs circumstances) particularly shop bought biscuits, crackers, bread and cakes, so your bread choice should be rye or brown seed loaf. Your carbohydrate intake should really be mostly vegetables (potatoes are included here).

Fats - this is the banting component that needs much further explanation.

Fats are vitally important for good health. Vitamins such as A, E, D and K require fat to be metabolized, so a low fat diet leads to a deficiency in these vitamins even if the diet supplies ample amounts. However, the type of fat eaten is extremely important. Fats in our diet are mostly bad for your because they are old. Butter is old fat, seed oils are old fats, the fats in nuts are old, fats in cold meats and biltong are very old, and the fats in biscuits (shop bought) and chips (crisps) are very old - old fats are highly toxic. Old fats form harmful free radicals in the body, which are known to cause cellular damage and have been associated with diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and hardening of tissues such as blood vessels and collagen in the skin. Free radicals produced by old fats can also damage DNA in cells and predispose us to cancer.

The best dietary fat is fresh dairy cream. Here are the health benefits:

Rich in the most easily absorbable form of Vitamin A necessary for thyroid and adrenal health.
Contains lauric acid, important in treating fungal infections and candida.
Contains lecithin, essential for cholesterol metabolism.
Contains anti-oxidants that protect against free radical damage.
Has anti-oxidants that protect against weakening arteries.
Is a great source of Vitamins E and K.
Is a very rich source of the vital mineral selenium.
Saturated fats in cream have strong anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties.
Cream contains conjugated linoleic acid, which is a potent anti-cancer agent, muscle builder, and immunity booster
Vitamin D found in cream is essential to absorption of calcium.
Protects against tooth decay.
Is your only source of an anti-stiffness factor, which protects against calcification of the joints.
Anti-stiffness factor in cream also prevents hardening of the arteries, cataracts, and calcification of the pineal gland.
Is a source of Activator X, which helps your body absorb minerals.
Is a source of iodine in highly absorbable form.
May promote fertility in women.
Is a source of quick energy, and is not stored in our bodies adipose tissue.
Cholesterol found in cream is essential to children's brain and nervous system development.
Contains Arachidonic Acid (AA) which plays a role in brain function and is a vital component of cell membranes.
Protects against gastrointestinal infections.

To prevent negative effects from a high intake of dietary fat, the fat metabolic system of your body must be healthy, so using our Natru Fat Loss Accelerator is an essential addition to your Natru for Slimmers for optimal weight loss when choosing this dietary lifestyle.
