The Best Pet Food Controls Your Pet's Weight
The solution to virtually every health problem can be traced to nature. Obesity is no exception.
Animals in the wild do not become obese other than as a temporary measure to hibernate. Excess weight can only occur if food intake exceeds energy and growth demands. For carnivores in the wild, a tremendous amount of energy is required to catch prey. They struggle to maintain body weight. They are not going to struggle even harder in order to become obese and thus less able to catch prey.
Contrast this with the modern urban pet. They are confined and don't ever have to expend more energy to obtain food than to beg, if even that. For most pets an easy meal is right in front of their noses 24-7. So we have removed the work necessary for a meal and provided a bottomless bowl. How could we depart from nature more than that?
Making things even worse is the carbohydrate nature of processed pet foods. When carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are continually eaten, blood sugar levels are always replete. These sugars are metabolized into energy reserve stores in the form of body fat. Since low blood sugar levels are a signal to burn fats, the lack of such a signal keeps the body fat stores put where they are. The conversion of excess food into body fat and the turning off of the signal to burn body fat (by a continual supply of carbohydrates) is what causes obesity.
And obesity is not an inconsequential matter. It goes hand in hand with a host of chronic degenerative diseases including dental disease, diabetes, arthritis, organ failure, skin and coat abnormalities, cancer, and early death.
The solution is to return to nature's pattern. Cats and dogs need exercise and should get it daily or their food should be dramatically reduced. Even fasting for a day here and there is great for sedentary pets since this is exactly what they would do in the wild.
The best pet food should be predominantly protein and fat. Increasing fat in the diet trains the body to both assimilate and burn fat. Properly designed processed foods containing carbohydrates are fine, but only in rotation.
No, there is no special diet you can feed at every meal to circumvent the above causes of obesity. Singular feeding of anything can just set your dog or cat up for a host of other health problems.
The best pet food, high in protein and fat, fed in rotation and variety with fresh foods, and exercise, is the key to maintaining your pet's healthy weight.
The Wysong Directory of Alternative Resources is a guide to alternative sources of health care, self-improvement, environmental improvement and much more. Over 335 Resources. This is where you turn when you have a problem that is not being solved, want an alternative medical second opinion, and want help getting control of your own health destiny. Updated weekly and currently over 60 pages front and back.
Below is a sampling of the helpful resources you can use to take control of your own health destiny, listed in the Wysong Resource Directory:
The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network http://www.foodallergy.org -Offers information about food allergens, current research, recipes as well as current food allergy alerts and ingredient notices. Information available for children and adults. Membership available, which includes the newsletter Food Allergy News.
The Wysong Healthletter is now well into its third decade of continuous publication. It is offered free to help you make a better you and a better world.
I long ago came to realize that the most worthy role of any doctor is to teach people how not to need them. This led me away from practice where treating symptoms is the primary tool and a misinformed public has come to expect magic bullet cures. But no disease is ever caused by the lack of a drug, and no treatment—save that for trauma or defect—ever improves an organism. Medical intervention is, in fact, now the number one cause of death and suffering in our modern world.
Illness, in large part, comes from wrong thinking. Health requires an open-minded, fact-based philosophy of life and an ambition to make yourself the best you can be. Thoughtlessly following convention and laziness are irreconcilable with health.
Wellness requires a deep respect for the great unknowns of life and the power of natural healing forces. Pretending that we can command nature and that the body is a mere machine that can be manipulated with impunity by "experts" is an illusion of both professionals and the public.
So it is my hope that this newsletter will help you to take control of your own health destiny, trust the healing powers within and in nature, and understand that ultimately wellbeing is about what you do to yourself, not what someone else can do to you.
