FAT Triggers in Our Foods

The most fundamental principle of healthy eating and The Holy Grail of Weight Loss is Eat Truly healthy foods. Whole, ‘single ingredient foods’

Can you pick it, plant it, or catch it?  If not, then it is not real food! Real food doesn’t even need an ingredients label. Real food IS the ingredient…

On the other hand, food requiring ingredient labeling is often processed, packaged food containing ingredients such as MSG (monosodium glutamate), HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), artificial flavors, colors, emulsifiers, additives, preservatives,  artificial sweeteners and other chemicals – all of which are proven toxic to human health. Years of build-up can reduce your body’s effectiveness at nutrient absorption and your ability to lose weight

We are being bombarded on a daily basis by an astronomical level of toxicity…

News Flash – Did you know that your body responds to toxicity by using fat as a physical barrier between the toxins and your blood stream? The more toxins you have, the more fat your body creates to protect you!!

Junk food iconIn other words, he more chemicals/ toxins you eat, the more fat your body creates in order to keep them from being released in your body… And, did you know that Foods containing the chemicals HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) and MSG (monosodium glutamate) are main responsible for our nation’s obesity epidemic?

Do you realize that there is over 3000 foods with this chemical called MSG? – See more at: http://www.drberg.com/blog/most-popular/the-hidden-source-of-belly-fat#sthash.1ngoq1RO.dpuf

HFCS is a highly sweet, gloppy syrup, produced from surplus corn, that is also incredibly cheap.   HFCS is two-thirds the price of sugar! It provides that “just baked” sheen on bread and cakes, makes everything sweeter, and extends shelf life from days to years. HFCS is pumped into every conceivable processed food for maximum palatability. High-fructose intake = increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and extra belly fat too. HFCS causes in our brain a powerful “leptin-induced” biochemical drive to keep eating. Leptin is a hormone secreted by fat cells. Fructose make the brain “leptin resistant” so the brain can’t tell how much fat it has stored for a rainy day!

A 2012 UCLA study (published in the Journal of Physiology) revealed that eating HFCS containing foods affects the normal appetite signaling system. Appetite-regulating hormones, like Leptin, aren’t triggered (but ‘fat triggers are) and you’re left feeling unsatisfied, hungry and ready to binge eating…. Fructose doesn’t suppress the hunger hormone Ghrelin… Who wants another can of soda pop?  


According to the USDA, a 12-ounce can of cola contains over 8 teaspoons of sugar (HFCS) and tons of salt (55mg of sodium per can, it’s like drinking a pizza)… Why salt? To make you thirstier”! And of course caffeine, a mild stimulant and “diuretic“, that makes you pee free water!

But it’s not just sodas, processed junk foods, and the HFCS that’s added to commercial juice drinks, salad dressings, breads, cereals, pizzas, coleslaw, ketchup and even meat… Products marketed as ‘healthy’, such as orange juice and most sports drinks, have large amounts of HFCS too = Fat triggers = Weight gain.

On the other hand, MSG (monosodium Glutamate) a salt chemically converted into a flavor enhancer, traditionally used in Chinese food but found today in many processed foods and snacks, is also responsible for our nation’s obesity epidemic. According to Jon Gabriel, “There’s even a scientific term “MSG Obesity Induced Mice” (google it)… That’s how biochemical researchers that want to study obesity make a mouse or rat fat, feeding the poor thing MSG. Foods containing MSG = Fat triggers = Weight Gain! There’s over 3000 foods containing this chemical called MSG… check it out!

The Food Industry is deliberately Making you Fat

We are all well aware of the health and dietary pitfalls of junk food. So why  does it remain so popular? What makes tens of millions of people consume it daily? Well, part of the reason is by design – that is, the way such foods were designed to appeal to our senses… Junk food is designed to create a sort of “can’t resist mindset”…”No one can eat just one.” And the result is an “addiction”… That’s what junk food does!

Besides that… the processing of food strips away most of its nutritional value. Junk food/ Processed foods = empty, or almost empty calories = Fat triggers = Weight gain. You can be over fed yet starving to death. If your cells are not getting nourished then you’re starving on a cellular levelyou can go into starvation mode, which can result in weight gain. Same thing with Calorie Restrictive Diets = fat triggers = Weight gain!

The Paradox of Low Fat Food and High Fat People

The fact is, we are eating “low fat” foods but not losing weight. Don’t be fooled by the clever marketing of these “low fat” products attempting to cash in on the latest diet craze. The food industry promotes many products based on a single item (low fat, light) despite other unhealthy aspects. For example, ‘low-fat’ and “’light,’ often don’t tell you the whole story. These products may be high in fat if you check the serving size (some manufacturers use ridiculously small serving sizes). And Low fat usually means incredibly high sugar! Just because the label says “fat free” doesn’t mean it is “calorie free” or doesn’t contain a shocking amount of sugar (or toxic artificial sweeteners).

Recent studies prove that low-fat diets promote metabolic disease, including obesity and heart disease. If you’ve been cutting out the fat from your diet, it may be time to reconsider…

Check out: Alzheimers and Lowfat Diet

“People who have been on a high-fat low-carb diet are able then to tap into body fat as an energy resource. EAT FAT GET THIN” – Dr. David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain.

Don’t believe the claims on the front of the package

Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because the claims on the front of the product (low fat, low cal, light), or the name on the label (Skinny cow, weight Watchers, etc) sounds like “it is good for weight loss” the food is low in sugar. Most low fat foods are, yes,you guessed it“, Fat Triggers! and Fat triggers = Weight gain. For example, there is 18.21 grams of sugar in a 2.2 ozWeight Watchers Blueberry Muffin or Double Chocolate Muffin (keep in mind that 4 grams sugar = 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar) so there’s more than 4.5 teaspoons of sugar in one little “low fat” muffin. Nesquick Fat Free Chocolate Milk: 16 ounces = 56 grams sugar. With 14 teaspoons of sugar in one 16 ounce bottle, it will put you over your limit for the whole day.

Now, two brand names perceived as “healthy” with a sugar-loaded products: V8 Fusion Vegetable Fruit 100% juice (different varieties) 8 ounces = 26 grams sugar;  Newman’s Own Tomato & Basil spaghetti sauce is another sugar shocker, 1/2 cup = 12 grams sugar,3 teaspoons of sugar in half cup of spaghetti sauce!!!

Commercially Processed Foods are Made For Long Shelf-life, NOT Long Human Life! 

12 Commercially Processed Foods and genetically-manipulated Foods that are ‘Making you FAT’…

1. Processed Foods full of ‘additives’, ‘high fructose corn syrup’, sugar and ‘MSG’ (fat triggers) have been linked to weight gain and obesity but are still marketed as “healthy”. Additionally, product labeling may hide other fat triggers such as GM (genetically modified), and glutamic acid other name for MSG (monosodium Glutomate).

A recent study published in Nature suggests that emulsifiers such as carrageenan, lecithin, xanthan gum, polysorbate-80, and polyglycerols, among others (added to factory-produced foods to improve texture, keep ingredients from separating and extend their shelf life) are the culprits that are wreaking digestive havoc. Emulsifiers are approved for use by the FDA.

2. Eat NO WheatSounds like a draconian commandment but modern wheat is a Frankenfood.  Back in the 1950s, scientists began cross-breeding wheat to make it hardier, shorter, and better-growing. This introduced some compounds to wheat that aren’t entirely human friendly. These enhanced methods allow a plant to resist persistent herbicides. The technique is called “chemical mutagenesis” and might be worse than GMO engineering.

Much of the certified organic wheat supply in the U.S. is contaminated with Roundup

There are also studies showing that when compared to the older varieties, modern wheat may cause increased cholesterol levels and inflammation in our body and can have a similar glycemic index as white bread.

bread healthy halo

Buy breads made from Coconut flour, Blanched almond flour, Sunflower seed flour, Tapioca flour, Arrowroot flour, Green banana flour, etc. Choose sprouted grain breads and cereals made from a a variety of grains and legumes, such as quinoa, oat, barley, millet and even lentils. Ezekiel bread is organic, sprouted, 100% whole grain flourless bread. A 2-slice serving even contains 8 grams of complete protein and 6 grams of fiber, so don’t give up the bread, just choose the right kind! And for better blood sugar control always combine your low-glycemic carbohydrates with protein and a healthy dose of fats.

Abdominal fat accumulation is often shown to be the result of poor insulin sensitivity. And the more abdominal fat you gain, the worse your insulin sensitivity becomes… and thus the vicious cycle repeats. It is a fact that a diet high in wheat and other grain products leads to high blood sugar and poor sensitivity to the hormone insulin.

3. Foods containing Gluten are also fat triggers and produce chronic inflammation in our body, which means inefficient digestion, gastrointestinal issues and eventually weight gain. Gluten is a protein found in the grasses wheat, and to a much lesser extent barley and rye (and sometimes oats) because of Cross-contamination – (check out Gluten-free oat vendors), oats contain 5 grams of fiber per serving, making them the most filling choice.

Gluten-containing ingredients appear in many processed foods. Choose “organic” grains and grain-like plants that are ‘naturally gluten free‘, NOT gluten free processed foods : Rice in all forms (wild, brown, basmati), non GMO corn in all forms (corn flour, corn meal, grits, etc.), also quinoa (24g protein per cup), chia (concentrated Omega 3s energy & nutrients) amaranth (protein + 2 essential amino acids), buckwheat (great for cardiovascular health), millet (heart-healthy & rich in magnesium), teff (50% more protein, 25x more calcium and  5x more fiber than brown rice), montina (milled Indian ricegrass), sorghum (a gluten-free ancient grain like quinoa, amaranth spelt…)

“Gluten sensitivity can lead to leakiness of the gut and inflammation, and it may play some of its damaging role by the changes that it imparts in the microbiome, in the bacteria within the gut, when that food is consumed” – says Dr. David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain. Grain Brain exposes the truth about the devastating effects of wheat, sugar, and gluten on the brain. Grain Brain has reached #1 on multiple Best Seller lists, including those from The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

Reduce your insulin by reducing your carbohydrate intake so your blood sugar level remains stable and isn’t ‘spiked’ by certain foods. Foods with a high glycemic index can create feelings of hunger, lethargy, and irritability after we eat them

Quinoa is a gluten-free grain that contains greater fiber content, lower glycemic index, and double the protein of brown rice. Not only that, but quinoa is the ONLY grain to contain the full spectrum of amino acids = complete protein. It comes in several varieties: red, white, black, flakes (oatmeal-like) and it’s wholegrain rice-like form.  Check out these unrefined, nutrient dense and gluten free Ancient Grains…

Note: A different sensitivity to insulin is one of the factors that makes different diets appropriate for different people, a new study finds, indicating that a food’s glycemic index is in the eater… in that aspect, good diet for you may be bad for me.

4. Refined oils, rancid oils or denatured oils, are toxic to the body and difficult to break down consequently, they are fat triggers that lead to weight gain. Look for labels that say ‘not added oils’. Several studies have shown that these oils can increase the risk of death… from both cancer and heart disease.

Olive oil - Gabriel code The Gabriel MethodBTW, The New York Times recently published an explosive article entitled “Extra Virgin Suicide.” It reports that much of the olive oil sold in your local supermarket is adulterated with cheap soybean and other inferior oils. That’s very disturbing because most soy oil comes from genetically modified soybeans. Yuck! American supermarkets have become dumping grounds for these fraudulent oils. Yet it’s almost impossible to police these shady foreign operators because they are beyond the reach of U.S. regulators.

Check this out…
NBC News reports that “fake olive oil is rampant.”

CBS News adds: “Consumers who think they’re buying one of the healthiest foods on the planet often get something very different.”

“American grocery stores are awash in cheap, fake ‘extra virgins,’” confirms The Wall Street Journal.

A feature story on ABC’s Good Morning America was headlined, “Olive Oil Fraud Rampant.”

Forbes magazine warns: “Here’s the hard truth: the olive oil in your pantry, the one you bought for its health benefits and for some sliver of the seductive Mediterranean lifestyle, is most likely a scam.”

The healthiest oil for cooking is without doubt Coconut oil. It is the perfect oil for high-heat cooking methods like frying. Coconut oil consists almost entirely of fatty acids known as Medium chain Triglycerides that go straight from the digestive track to the liver, where they are turned into ketone bodies for cells of the body to use as energy instead of glucose. Medium chain Triglycerides increase energy expenditure compared to long chain fats. Therefore, a calorie from coconut oil is NOT the same as a calorie from olive oil or butter (although these are also perfectly healthy fats). Bottom Line: Coconut oil can help you lose weight. And most important, lose fat as most of the weight lost comes from fat (especially the dangerous fat in the abdominal cavity). Many studies show that people who add Medium Chain Fatty Acids to their diet have reduced appetite automatically.

Coconut oil may also be an innovative treatment for people already beginning to experience the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. Preliminary case studies have shown that eating coconut oil can  provide the brain with the energy it needs by boosting the amount of ketone bodies in the blood. Ketones are substances that are made when the body breaks down fat instead of glucose for energy. Alzheimer’s appears to interfere with the brain’s ability to process ‘glucose’ for energy, leading to starvation, cell death and worsened cognitive symptoms. So the link between ketone bodies, coconut oil, and Alzheimer’s disease is just an amazing discovery.

5. Margarine – is not food… Margarine is a fake food and a ‘Fat Trigger’. It is an assembly of refined oils and chemicals.  The Framingham Heart Study confirms the hypothesis that margarine intake increases the risk of coronary heart disease. If you want to improve your health, eat real butter (preferably grass-fed) and avoid processed margarine and other fake oils (oil substitutes).

6. The Meat Supply in general, is full of hidden fat triggers. Regular meat is full of antibiotics, steroids and hormones. Besides, animals are fed with GMO soy and corn. Cows are meant to eat grass, not soy and corn. Always choose grass-fed when buying meat. Check out Grass Fed Traditions.

7. Artificial Sweeteners. Though they have ‘supposedly’ cero (0) calories, they are dangerous ‘acidic chemicals’. As we already know ‘acidic toxins’ are stored in our fat cells. Artificial sweeteners are  fat triggers that lead to weight gain. Stevia is a good, safe, and natural alternative.

8. Diet Foods. Want to know what all those so-called “diet foods” have in common? They tend to be highly-processed, loaded with chemical toxins, and then enhanced by synthetic nutrients in an attempt to make them more healthy. Here’s what you’ll find when you read the labels of many of the most-popular “health foods”today:

• Saccharine (Sweet’N Low and Sugarine): carcinogenic

• Aspartame (NutraSweet): neurotoxin added to sodas, desserts, sugar-free cookies, chewing gums and breath mints. Can cause brain damage

• Sucralose (Splenda): made from chlorine

• MSG is a neurotoxin – added to over 10,000 diet and Non-Diet packaged foods

9. Dairy products, in general, are very acid forming in the body, mucus-forming, and difficult to digest. Highly acid foods = Fat triggers and a major cause of weight gain.

10. Toxins are stored in our fat cells therefore, toxins induce the production of fat. They are too acidic and will cause the body to hold on to fat to protect the organs that sustain life. The toxin Bisphenol A (BPA), which is widely used in the plastic packaging, is a man-made carbon-based chemical compound, and a fat trigger that has been associated with illnesses ranging from diabetes to infertility.

12 . ORGANIC junk food is still junk food. It’s the same junk, except with ingredients that happen to be organic. These are highly processed factory made foods that are very low in nutrients and are bad for just about anyone despite the organic label. And yes, that includes organic trail mix! Trail mixes are LOADED with sugar (a 1/2 cup can contain upwards of 30 grams of sugar) and organic sugar is still sugar. Instead, just go with raw nuts for a healthy snack.

Jon Gabriel’s advice: Avoid processed and diet food altogether and just eat real foods. Real foods taste great, and you already love them. Most of us have been confused into thinking that we need some kind of manufactured food to lose weight. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

G A B R I E L  C O D E     J O N   G A B R I E L  –  T H E   G A B R I E L   M E T H O D  –  F A T   T R I G G E R S   I N   O U R   F O O D S

The food on our plates is becoming pure science – each processed milligram tweaked, sweetened and seasoned for maximum palatability, and the general public, most of the times, is clueless that these changes are taking place.  Once the public becomes a savvy consumer then the toxin is renamed, re-branded and often modified. MSG is hidden behind words on the label like “natural flavorings” or “approved spices”. It’s also the case of aspartame and amino sweet, and high fructose corn syrup and corn sugar. Gabriel Code.org only scratches the surface of the problem. There are plenty of foodstuff and kitchen terrors in your pantry that are just as bad!

These are the 3 ‘Bad Guys’ of ‘Poor Digestion’ according to Jon Gabriel

Poor Digestion = Fat Trigger = Weight Gain


Pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers can disrupt the natural balance of bacteria inside your body leading to overgrowth of harmful yeasts and funguses.



Digestive enzymes are found naturally in all uncooked and unprocessed whole foods, but they are completely destroyed by heat and commercial food processing. Your body can produce its own enzymes too, of course, but when it has to produce all the required enzymes (because you’re not getting them from food), it puts undo strain on your digestive system.


At least once, I’m sure antibiotics have literally saved your life, but unfortunately, doctors tend to over-prescribe these bacteria killing medicines leading again to an imbalance of gut bacteria, leading to poor digestion, leading to weight gain!

 Jon Gabriel – Total-digestion-offer

So, what’s the solution according to Jon Gabriel? Start by choosing organic produce and meats whenever possible. Focus on whole foods that are fresh, local and natural whenever you can.

The food industry  puts profits over public health, the bigger the promi$e (health credentials such as: healthy, organic, low calorie, light, low carb, low fat) the bigger the price. The rise in obesity to “epidemic” proportions should be a serious concern for the food industry, but the biggest global industry seems to have NO moral responsibility when it comes to obesity!

The food industry has turned a population of mostly healthy Americans into a sickly and obese society that has become heavily dependent on Big Pharma (the FDA “partner”), Big Pharma – is the nickname given to the pharmaceutical industry. Big Pharma has long neglected unprofitable preventive care healing systems, holistic therapies and alternative medicine modalities such as vit B17 (Laetrile), Mistletoe (Iscador) and the Hoxsey, Essiac, and Gerson therapies, among others, in favor of profitable medical protocols that treat “symptoms” in the short term so as to make people patients for life…

The FDA “partner” with the Pharmaceutical Industry

“I never have, and never will, approve a new drug to an individual, but only to a large pharmaceutical company with unlimited finances.”– Dr. Richard J. Crout, Director, FDA Bureau of Drugs, 1982

Gabriel code - Big pharma

Regulation of the food and advertising industries is crucial to curb obesity because the food industry won’t police itself, but we can’t wait for the government to legislate. There is a better and easier solution, however, than waiting for the FDA to pull its act together. Avoid these additives by making your own food.

We could all have a safe and healthy food industry if we truly wanted it… But, there are just not enough of us that want it that badly… yet!
