LIGHTEN UP - Protein Myths

I've been fighting "where do you get your protein" - misinformed statement/question for almost 50 years. Protein is in ALL foods, and in fruits and vegetables, it is in the proper amount, mixed perfectly for our health.

Finally, the Medical Medium did a talk this morning on protein. Read it and be set free. Read it and follow the information to be healthy, restore your brain and build muscles.

Let the truth be told, even though the heavens may fall!

Here are the notes from this morning's Facebook Live! Sunday, May 6, 2018: FB Live with Anthony William, the Medical Medium

Anthony will be sharing undiscovered information on the truths and myths about protein and building muscles, including:

  • Why today's protein obsession is more harmful than helpful

  • The correlation between high protein and high-fat diets and why they can be detrimental when you have a chronic illness

  • How high protein diets can lead to liver problems and feed pathogens

  • The most important macro-nutrient for building and rebuilding muscles (it's not what you might think)

  • The best foods to eat to rebuild muscles and strength.

"I’m Anthony William, the Medical Medium. We are doing a big show about protein today. What I want you to do is watch this again after we are done, because it’s going to be packed.

What if somebody played a joke on you? And you never found out what it was? Maybe even your whole lifetime was lived never finding out what someone did to you your entire lifetime or your forefathers and parents lifetime. What if the joke was played on them? Wait. What if the joke was played on your children? That is not funny. What if the joke gets played on their children? If you don’t know what it is, how can you get yourself safe? Well, protein is like that joke. Protein has its place, but it’s not as important as you think.

Protein is not responsible for why millions of people are sick. People are not responsible for all the symptoms people have with chronic and mystery illness. Protein is not totally responsible. It does play a role, as far as bad proteins go, but is not the cause.

You recognize what this is? It’s an egg. We are going to talk about this, cheese too. I’m not going to eat it for lunch. All these myths can get in the way of your healing.

With protein and chronic illness, you can’t lump them all together.

You can’t go searching for protein to get you better. If anything proteins can actually get in the way. If you don’t know much about me, here’s where I'm not doing propaganda against meat-protein or against vegan people.

There’s a food war going on out there.

Protein is like the thing everybody’s hanging their hat on. I’m not on any one side. This is about information you need to know whether someone is plant based or protein based, so the playing field is leveled out. This is about getting you the truth whether you're plant eaters or paleo Both of these groups use protein as this thing they’re playing with. It’s keeping all the experts busy. The reason they have to hang their hat on it is because they don’t know what’s making people sick. Get the First MM book and read it. Go to the library and get it. When you go to your doctor and practitioners, they say you are not eating enough protein or eggs, or whatever. That wrong information is going to burn you and burn you bad. That’s why I’m doing this. Im on your side and I’m not trying to hang my hat on something. I am not propping up some false belief system or a bunch or organized financial backers.

The LCF book is about what’s in these foods which will actually heal you. There’s no protein powders in this book. Protein doesn’t actually heal anyone. It can hurt people depending on what it is and how it’s done. What heals people is all the other things which are in food.

Where did the whole protein thing come from? In the 1940s and women started complaining about aches and pains, tingles and numbness, painful feet, joints, eye problems, brain fogs. All that barely existed until the 1940s. And guess what came in “Maybe you need protein” You should have more protein shakes if you're vegan. It’s madness because if you're wrapped up in it, you'll slow your healing down. Men created the protein phrase to have an answer about why women were having problems. I’ve talked to old doctors for decades ago. And they would remember the day when the weather changed and women were filing in non-stop and everyone’s offices were getting filled for no reason. Guess what the scape goat was? Protein! It was the industry where the agenda and payoffs were. Then it was all hormones, now it’s something else.

If you don’t free yourself from the protein madness, you're going to get lost.

So even if you're eating some fresh fruits and veggies for the first time, and you still have these ups and downs and someone tells you: you need more protein, you are going to set yourself badly. I don’t mind animal protein nor vegan protein. Spinach is a great source of protein and it’s highly bioavailable but has no fat so doesn’t fill you up for long.

The reason why people feel satiated when they eat animal protein is because they are eating a protein source which has a lot of fat with it. If people are on the cleanse, and suddenly feel like they need something heavier pr satiating, they eat a 4 oz piece of meat. It’s because of the fat that was mixed into the protein that is satiating. So we have to focus on calories, not just protein. If you're an athlete, and you're only eating 2 bananas in a day it’s not enough.

Lentils, spirulina, barley grass juice powder; these are great protein sources without all the fat.

Is protein from beans ok? Some people do well with beans and some don’t Beans have so much fibre and everybody’s digestive tract is different. So some people can do amazing with lentils, sprouted 28% lentils. on their salad. But some people will have trouble with all that fibre and get gas.

Even after I do this hour, some of you will still be like “Where’s my protein?” And its still that old joke from the last century.

You don’t have to be plant or animal based but if you are just focused on protein, you are going to get yourself and your loved ones in trouble. Celery juice, I’m drinking it Sunday morning. This is like 24-26 ounces. That’s how much I do in the mornings. I talk about celery juice in all my books. If you don’t have the books, go to the library.

Celery juice is critical.

That’s how we can go into the next phase with building muscles. Celery plays a big role in that.

Fats in Protein: What we are really looking for is calories, not protein. We get them from nuts, seeds, beef, chicken, eggs. We think we are looking for protein but what we are really looking for is calories. There’s a large amount of fat in an egg. It’s the fats in the egg that are getting you through the day. The eggs can feed viruses and get you sick later in your life by age 35-38. If they kept off the eggs, they could have avoided that. Don’t do eggs.

You need to feel satiated and you might see on the egg boxes, these eggs have omegas. When you cook the egg you destroy the omegas anyway. It’s the same thing with cheese. Cheese is on the rise again. Everybody is eating cheese again. It’s offered to women with PCOS, and cysts and tumours. Cheese grows cysts and tumours. So these protein sources will grow it. Your doctor says you have cancer, or Hashimotos, you do NOT NEED EGGS NOR CHEESE. If you hold a piece of cheese, you can feel the fat from cheese on your hand. My hand is now greasy. The reason why we eat cheese is because it is high in fat and we want the calories. The standard gov’t labelling is wrong. There is way more fat in cheese than what the labels indicate.

People can walk around feeling messed up. Milk is all about protein. This is a trouble maker. It causes diabetes, obesity, fatty liver, and all kinds of problems. It feeds every strep in the body. It feeds strep, acne, and SIBO. Proteins in milk feed all kinds of bugs. You can eat beef if you want. It doesn’t feed bugs. If you're plant based and eating nuts and seeds, that’s not going to feed bugs.

If you have these books, just try to read it.

If you're plant based you have to make sure that you're getting enough calories. Some protein powders have a lot of fats in them. Try not to go protein crazy. We will talk about what you can eat as a vegan or meat eater.

Everybody is getting enough protein, but are they getting enough of everything else, and that’s why we are getting sick. They may not be getting enough of the good proteins, but everyone is getting enough protein. Even if you're living on just fruits and veggies.You are getting enough protein, but you might not be getting enough calories.

Why do eggs hold me over the whole morning? Eggs create insulin resistance, hurt the liver, feeds bugs, causes lots of problems, but the fat is what holds you over longer. If you're only eating a piece of fruit in the morning, then that’s not enough calories. If you look at the calorie difference, that makes the difference. But if you're bringing in your celery juice every morning you're going to be held over a lot better.

Does the average man need 50 gm protein a day? No! Children need about 2 grams a day. It goes up to about 7-8 grams of protein a day for an adult. If you get more than 50 grams of protein a day, you're going to get liver disease, diabetes, brain diseases. Because you're getting too much protein and also too much fat. You are gong to get fatty liver and fatty brain. Your brain isn’t even made out of fat, despite what the trendy diets say.

If you eat spinach you're going to get more than 10 grams a day. But you need things that are inside spinach and fruits which you're not being told you need. You need things to save your life and protect you. LFC talks about whats in these foods so you can heal, and it’s not talking about protein because that is not what heals you.

What about hair loss on a vegan diet? First of all you like meat. I still say don’t eat eggs and dairy, but if you’re into eating meat, go ahead. But if you're always eating meat, you don’t want to eat a lot of it, also vegans not too many nuts and seeds. You want to lower the fats. If you're animal based you need to back down the meats to make room for the foods that are going to heal you. You can’t just have 3 leaves of spinach. You have to look at the spinach soup recipe. You take a whole bunch of spinach and blend it up with tomatoes. You do that so you stay strong.

You had hair loss as a vegan. If you lose hair now, that is from a year ago. It doesn’t mean what you were eating a year ago, it means what was happening a year ago. Did an event happen where you had a loss or break up. Hair will come out 8-9 months later. You're going to blame it on your vegan diet. For all the meat eaters that are losing their hair. 99% of America eats meat. That plant based 1% eats vegan, vegetarian and fish. I had people coming to me in droves losing hair and they were all eating meat.

Meat-eaters can also lose hair 10 months later and then go vegan and their hair comes back. I can’t tell you how many people went vegan and their nails and hair came back. It’s not protein from meat. It is protein from broccoli, spinach and celery that makes your hair grow back. So if people don’t have perspective and go back and forth because if you're chasing protein and other books that people are hanging their hats on, all of that goes back to when nobody knew what was going on and protein was all they could throw at them.

You have to have a quality protein. Spirulina is a quality protein. But what else is in there? It’s the carotenes, the blue colours, the pigments, The Vimergy Barley Grass Juice Powder is really high protein, but there’s no calories, so there’s no fat in here, so you're not going to feel satiated. It’s about the minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients that are there.

Can fatty liver or liver damage be reversed? Yes! Absolutely! You reverse it by taking out eggs. Eggs create a fatty liver. One of the ways to heal a liver is to remove eggs. Doctors don’t always know when the liver is fatty. We are all walking around with fatty livers. It’s really important to realize that. Liver damage is reversible, but it’s not reversible if we have eggs, cheese and fats constantly going into the liver.

When you eat cheese, it goes into the intestinal tract and it goes up a highway of veins and goes up into the liver and clogs up the liver. Same when you eat eggs, they go right up into the liver and clog it up and cause it to become fatty. If you're vegan and you're doing lots of nuts and seeds, and lots of avocados, all that fat is going up into the liver and is going to create a sluggish liver.

Our livers come here with DDT, with heavy metals, saturated with toxins from our forefathers and our parents. Get the metals out, the pesticides out. Our livers are not perfect when we are born. What’s the answer? We already have fatty livers, most of us. We are like robots, being brain washed and we are eating more fat because of this brainwashing. Liver gets fattier, and then if you have a virus causing fatigue, then it feeds off of toxins and other poisons, and then you get scar tissue and now we have liver damage.
