Fruit Lowers Blood Sugar A Lot

By Atom Bergstrom

Atom’s Blog

Fruit scores very low on Glycemic Index (GI), Glycemic Load (GL), and Glycemic Response (GR).

Glycemic Index is a deceptive concept (mostly due to advertising hype).

Glycemic Response is what actually happens in human blood and tissue.

Glycemic Index is a property of an individual carbohydrate food tested all by its lonesome.

It’s only accurate if you’re on a Mono Diet, eating one food at a time (good for cleansing, not for building).

Adding other foods affects the Glycemic Response — it’s what actually happens to your blood and tissue (including your teeth).

Adding fat to any meal reduces the Glycemic Response (lowers blood sugar).

The same goes for protein.

Combining nuts and fruit from trees for breakfast is a “low blood sugar” way to start the day.

Adding black sun-dried olives to the mix drops blood sugar even more — and adds salt to help digestion.

The same goes for green olives.

Hydrochloric acid for the stomach and sodium bicarbonate for the small intestines are made from sodium chloride (common salt).

The most abundant fat in an olive is oleic acid.

It’s also the most abundant fat in human adipose tissue and there’s lots of it in other places.

What? You were expecting stearic acid?

No wonder the olive tree and its fruit have been held in such high regard down through the ages.

Cow milk is about 70 percent saturated fat by weight and 25 percent mono-unsaturated oil by weight (almost entirely oleic acid).

It could be said that olive oil has more in common with human fat than cow milk.

Grain-fed beef (especially Japanese Wagyu or Akausi beef) is higher in healthy oleic acid and lower in trans-fats than grass-fed beef.

Grass is great food for cattle, but perhaps not as good for us homo sapians sapians (who are so cool we named ourselves twice).

(Of course, genetically-modified grass isn’t good food for either cattle or human beings, especially GMO grasses like Tifton 85.)

Oleic acid (Acidum Oleicum) was once commonly used as a solvent to absorb medicines from the skin into the body.

Without POTASSIUM (which acts like insulin) oleic acid would be useless to us.

Jacques Loeb wrote …

“If we replace the H [hydrogen] in the carboxyl group of oleic acid by K [potassium] the very soluble potassium oleate is formed, so that the whole molecule is now dragged into the water, The Na [sodium] oleate is less soluble than K oleate. Ca [calcium] oleate is again sparingly soluble.”

      “Very few of us know the laws of creation let alone know what creation we are living in. You know, we are very naive people, or very strange people, to live on the planet Earth and think we have all the answers to the galactic system and that we are the only people.” — Swami Nitty-Gritty–e-books.php

      Hello AtOM,
      I think I found the answer to whether imported goods into Australia are irradiated.
      “The two main pest control measures for organic foodstuffs are freezing and modified atmosphere treatment (MAT). MAT involves decreasing oxygen content in the atmosphere immediately surrounding the foods to below approx 4% for an extended period of time. The time is dependent on humidity, temperature and the particularly pests involved.”

      What are your thoughts on Modified Atmosphere Treatment?

      Love from Sydney, Australia

      Handedness is a parent trauma. Ambidexterity is enlightenment. :)

      Handedness is usually associated with a person’s writing hand. It goes way deeper.

      When Swami Nitty-Gritty first told us TB was a cure for cancer, I thought he was playing the dozens with his uncle’s cousins.

      Then I read a book on immunity by a Medical Mafioso (M.D.) who wrote the same thing (sans the usual medical hippomontrosesquipedalianism).

        off topic but wouldn’t bare feet or leather moccasins be the healthiest way to walk?


        • December 14, 2015 @ 8:33 pm Atom

          Off-topic questions are always welcome! :)

          Bare feet or leather moccasins are the healthiest way.

          Regarding bare feet, it’s best not to walk on soil containing pinworms.

          Suzy and I walked barefoot on beach sand last week, combining negative ions (from the waves), sunshine, and grounding.


          • December 15, 2015 @ 5:08 pm mark

            I miss walking on the beach but am happy you and Suzy can partake. Of course I can always concentrate my thoughts of happy moments walking on the beach. That should help:^

              Swami Nitty-Gritty called those happy memories Body-Felt-Good Memories and recommended them as remedies for every disease from A to Z. :)

      Hi Atom,
      is the slice of lemon with fish at night ok or not ?


      • December 19, 2015 @ 12:46 am Atom

        Lemon is out of time with fish, but there’s always a loophole — add some olive oil to the mix and change the chemistry. :)
