calorie fuel


CALORIE FUEL
I throw around a lot of figures on calories.  One pound of wheat is 1500 a day, which is the minimum you need just sustaining the body, for instance.  These figures are not just what I pull out of my ass but what I can find from every source I’ve encountered.  Yet, these figures are only partially correct.  They come with proviso’s.  I just can’t stop a discussion every time to modify what I’m using as generalized figures, because it takes far too much explanation.  I’ve touched on these before, but a minion commented and inspired this longer article.   
*
Calorie guidelines are akin to the old food pyramid most of us grew up with.  It is a rough guide that was influenced by GroupThink and wishful thinking and corporate influence.  It is useful but you should NOT use it as a binding rigidly correct document.  We should first start out with the problem of calories themselves.  They are a recent, as far as a definition of food energy ( heat energy by the same name was about 60-70 years previous ).  And like a lot of theories that were later regarded as pure D fact, they got little debate.
*
Someone comes up with a theory, like evolution and petroleum formation, and it kind of slides in under the radar and isn’t really questioned but rather accepted.  Then, fought ferociously as if it had received normal rigorously tested consideration.  I know Darwin himself didn’t hatch his work whole but was influenced, and there has been recent questions, but seriously, look up the biotic source of petroleum theory some time.  Almost no scrutiny ( this is not to say I embrace abiotic oil.  I don’t.  Like evolution, it is TOO easy of a theory and needs questioning ). 
*
Science isn’t always as sciencey as we are preached to.  Wild ass guesses, ego driven mistakes, career security lies, all play a role.  A lot of times-not always, which is why it is a superior system-theory is given equal status as proof, called science.  A lot of times, we don’t question what should be, because science SOMETIMES acts exactly like a faith based thought process.  Gore Warming is the obvious example, but that is because Political Correctness prostitutes make it so easy to find the faults.  Note I’m not discounting the theory.  I’m saying the theory is proven by many through religious faith. 
*
The whole study of nutrition is more quackery than science.  The great thing about the heyday of science ONLY made possible by extreme energy surplus and having nothing to do with a sudden spike in intelligence ( simply, we had the surplus to let millions sit idle and think and experiment ) was that in the pursuit of money, the most arcane minutia was explored to ridiculous lengths.  Well, good AND bad.  We have all this data, hopefully not lost in the coming Digital Library Of Alexandria Fire, but a lot of it is suspect.
*
Remember how I keep telling you that human nature demands-not just allows, but demands-that we self-justify terrible behavior ( two examples-we love our kids, which is why we must beat on them sometimes. We love one human, so we must kill another one.  True, but only through self-justification can we resolve these hypocritical programs )?  How many millions of scientists over the millions of experiments through decades of work, how many were less than perfectly rigid in their testing?  Remember, you can use that brain to sit around all day and work really hard thinking.
*
Or, you can use that enlarged head with a withering body to go dig ditches or plow a field.  Which activity do you think most people are going to choose?  Also recall, it is human nature to be as lazy as possible.  Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if we actually have more junk science than the real thing.  People are NOT as smart as they think they are.  They are lazy.  They are vain.  Through self-justification they lie to themselves and believe it.  And they are influenced by faith. In some cases, by God and by some cases by the god of politics or Mammon. 
*
I’m not claiming that those who studied nutrition are all Charlton’s,  but I’m wondering how much we think we know is correct.  As I’ve said before, the ex-wife ( the BTN, the Better Than Nothing, the one right before the current NOL ), never ate that many calories. She drank as many as she could, and ate a few hundred solid ones.  Which were usually sugar or processed starches.  By all conventional wisdom, she should have died Oh So Many years ago.  You all have a similar story, I’m sure.  Is conventional nutritional wisdom all that wise?
*
How much tobacco or alcohol research is colored by the moralistic beliefs of those doing the tests?  How many times have you heard of “proof” that most likely came from profiting a corporation?  One week, eggs will kill you.  The next week, hatcheries probably funded research that proved the opposite.  In the Fifties, the schools taught that all diets must be heavy in animal protein.  Two decades later, whole grains took their place ( after meat became too expensive ).  In both cases the government was guiding consumer behavior more than good nutrition.  How much of milks benefits are for dairy profits rather than “calcium” or “strong bones”?
*
How long did the government hide the truth about The Wonder Of The Atom?  The same government that once institutionalized racism but is now institutionalizing racism ONLY against Whites, these people we trust with advice on eating?  Between testing to profit and testing to faith, how much testing to actual friggin nutrition has been going on?  And how much has embracing superstition and hubris allowed us to lie to each other and ourselves?  You know that almost all food calorie research was done by Nazi’s and by American Fascists, don’t you?
*
How divorced from ideological fervor were these tests?  With that we continue tomorrow.

  1. Following along. The thinking (again, Minions must do their own brain work more often than reliance on others) Minionite must develop their own fuel intake needs outside any dogma info graphic charts published. Use one's ethnic and genetic background and cultural food type preferences that actually provide fuel and energy for that paticular individual. I, as an example are a meat, potato, root crop consumer of european descent. I cannot survive long on asian foods or hispanic foods, etc The base ingredients prepared in a western way maybe, but there is marked performance decreases and energy levels at attempts to be vegan, culturally inclusive sampler, or overload the meal on carbs or empty caloricly and nutritional void processed foods. Ignore almost all information by these fake news and fake experts, they publish junk science and still get paid well. If one was blessed with extended generational families just refer back to what grandma was packing your tummies with that gave you energy to run around all day long and grow like a weed tall every summer visit. Stick with what you may "instinctively" know what works for you, as the lizard brain will by natural order instruct the proper course for physical survival. Keep it simple.

    1. Years ago I gave Veganism a go. It didn't work out for me.

      I recall, Dr McDougal saying to his patients from ethnic migrants "What did your grandparents eat? What did you parents eat? Were they obese? Did they have cardio-vascular issues? Well.... Eat what they ate!"

    2. Yeah, I gave the lacto-vegetarianism a try. Back when I thought Hippies knew better than biology. The Oil Age, allowing dumbasses to survive.

  2. The Food Pyramid replaced the Four Food Groups that I grew up with as a kid in the 70's.

    - fruits/vegetables
    - meat/eggs
    - grains/cereals
    - milk/cheese

    I immediately recognized that pizza contained a balance of all four food groups and was therefore the perfect food. I still feel that way today.

    Re: your link to the free book on fermenting sauerkraut reminds me of a story of Captain Cook. He was a genius navigator but also a genius for recognizing that a broader spectrum diet would prevent scurvy from developing in his crew. He thought sauerkraut would be a good addition to the food rations, but also knew the crew were always skeptical about what was being pushed on them. To get them to eat it he had the wisdom to first have it served only at the captain's table. When it was later served to the rest of the crew they knew it must be something good.

    1. There was also a story about a ship captain that made beer out of sprouts, as a scurvy cure. Pizza is indeed the perfect food.

  3. Pizza the perfect food? But is it on the approved list for those who are on welfare? I know that I can use my govermint bribe to buy a bag of Mcpoopie and swing by the grocery store and buy soda.
    But pizza does sound like a nice thing to help me force down that 12 pack of suds while watching my sports on the 65 inch Mega Tron tv. And taking turns smacking the ol'lady and kicking the dog and cat. YUM YUM

  4. I know several people who overindulge in alcohol. It turns to sugar in your gut, which feeds candida (yeast infection). They do have internal problems, you can also see it in their skin if you know what to look for, like excessive dandruff, psoriasis, etc. I also have a family member that should have died 40+ years ago from diabetes if it wasn't for medical intervention. It was completely self-induced, as he was always gulping large quantities of fast foods and soda. What kept him alive and mobile was his careful self-care and clinic visits so his feet wouldn't rot off from the wounds that developed. Also the pharmaceuticals to mask symptoms.
    He wouldn't change his diet. Some people it just takes longer for the symptoms to be noticeable to others because they aren't publicly talking about their health struggles.
    Peace out

    1. Ah, legal drugs. For the respectable members of society, to keep them alive and slaving away much longer.

  5. I like the website and companion youtube channel called: NutritionFacts.org
    He does a very good job weeding through all the bull. He is somewhat biased toward a whole grain plant based diet, but does a good job with present facts. Almost all of his facts come from medical journals and double blind placebo based studies. Anyways, best food info I have found so far. Take care and YES, pizza is a wonder food. I am going to make one tonight. Hehe

    1. Thanks, I'll check that out.

    2. Well, you have helped me out with out knowing it... and probably dozens of others. At least i can do is share what I can be to useful.

      BTW, What are your thoughts on the fear porn of another Solar Minimal event happening? They are saying another solar storm like the "carrington effect" is coming soon.

    3. As much as the Next Ice Age makes more sense to me than Gore Warming, especially as it is far more common historically, I simply don't pay that much mind to it. Once I got out of my early years reliance on the out of date "one year is sufficient food storage" paradigm, and realized Dark Ages mean lots of food issues for a long time, it no long matters if I cannot grow my own food right away. If an asteroid hit, or we had nuclear winter, or, as is now popular, an Ice Age, I have enough food storage. Which is easy to do when you only store grain. As for solar storms, meh. One way or another the grid is going down. And if you are prepared yesterday because the end might be tomorrow, where is the concern?

    4. Great answer, thank you.

    1. Well, it isn't as good as "I'd rather be two years too early than two seconds too late", but that one was already taken :)
