an article by Dr. Joseph Mercola at Truth Based Media.
Let me save you some time. It says being overweight and catching the Wuflu, or any flu for that matter, is not good.
Let's face it, my precious petite popcorns, being overweight is not good under any conditions or circumstances. If you're wondering why so many people are fluffy, just cast your gaze to our government, which includes the CDC, Surgeon General, and a slew of other alphabet agencies who have been instructing us on how to be healthy.
Their mantra? Eat lots of whole grains, fruit, veggies, and limit meat and fat; in particular, that evil red meat. They keep telling us that if you just eat a bit less (calorie restriction), and move around more, the pounds will magically disappear. They won't. It's a lie, and the outcome is a country full of fluffy inflammation riddled, insulin resistant, or type 2 diabetic people, who bounce from one fad diet to another.
Dr. Mercola quotes an article by Joel Hirschhorn, member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, and America’s Frontline Doctors, which says governments have missed a public health opportunity by not issuing recommendations for effective and sustainable weight loss to lower your risk for severe COVID-19 infection and death.
Problem is, the government is not here to help us. So far, everything they've ever recommended, diet-wise, has been wrong and dangerous. And don't forget this is the same government trying to coerce you into having a shot in the arm which could conceivably kill you. Is this who you want to take diet advice from? I didn't think so.
Thankfully, Dr. Mercola ends his article by telling you what to do:
In closing, whether you’re concerned about COVID-19 or not, losing excess weight can have a positive impact on your health. Tried and true strategies include fasting, time-restricted eating, avoiding food at least three hours before bed, and cutting out added sugars and refined carbs from your diet.
Great resources for more information include an editorial published in the journal Open Heart by noted research scientist James DiNicolantonio, PharmD., and Dr. Jason Fung’s book, “The Complete Guide to Fasting: Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting.”*
