Hello there Fructose Addicts around the world,
Yesterday I finally looked it up: Dietary thermogenesis!!! I couldn't even find a Dutch word for it (so if anyone knows!?? ). So I had to read a few websites on the subject all in English. All those nice, interesting, very scientific words made it a bit rough for me, but I think I know what it means...
Once your diet contains only raw fruits & veggies the extra caloric intake will never change into fat. It will change into heat, and so you will burn all the calories you eat. Therefore you will never have to worry about calorie restriction.
The thing that causes this thermogenesis to get started is FIBER!!!! That's the secret!!!
So I think this also means that once you also eat potatoes, rice and stuff like that the thermogenesis does not work the same way. It works perfect once you eat fully HCRV.
This is what I think it means. But I haven't found an artical about it in my own language (dutch).
So please correct me if I'm wrong about anything! And please keep the scientific terms easy to digest ;p
Keep up the good fruit
It's not bad to eat rice and potatoes, it's just not the optimal food. The way I see it now is that weight loss and dietary thermogenesis are 2 different things.
You can lose weight with cooked vegan for sure. But only with all raw you will get the thermogenesis going.
I am encouraged to see Freelee's thighs...I always thought when I was skinny like her that I was still heavy (yes, even at 112!) because my thighs were so big. You are helping me look more toward raw, even in winter, and not just settle for cooked!
Thank you JayDee for this post: language differences only increase the way something is described and made Dietary Thermogenesis more understandable for me! Thank you, again!
I'm glad to hear that. You're very welcome.
me too, thanks
Sexiest couple in the world. WOWW!!!
ooo looks like freelee is building up them quads.
It does also work with cooked rice/potatoes. Dr. McDougall has shown studies on that. The only time it doesn't work is when fat is ADDED to the carbs like oils and such.
JayDee, could you please copy the links? Thank you! :)
