Rescue the Body!

By: juhans

Fat is produced by the body when the diet provides the body
with more calories than it needs for general maintenance and its current level
of physical activity. French fries are full of calories.

 

On level 3, the French fries produce fats (the Minotaurs) which
go to the liver (level 4), where they are stored.

 

Healthy Protein Foods

Many people believe that meat products are unhealthy. but that's not true!

First, stay away from processed meats - that means deli lunch meats and also the
meat at fast food restaurants.

Second, to keep the calories down (to help you burn fat), choose the leanest
cuts of meat you can find. For example, turkey breast instead of thighs or a top round steak instead of a big prime rib.

Third, if you can fit it in your budget, choose grass-fed beef, which has a
healthier fatty acid profile (healthier ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty
acids)

 

 

  • Chicken breast (the real bird, not fast food meat!)
  • Turkey breast (the real bird, not sliced lunch meat!)
  • Game meats (venison, elk, etc.)
  • Bison/buffalo (is often leaner than regular beef)
  • Very lean red meat such as top round and lean sirloin (grass
  • fed is especially nutritious)
  • Almost all types of fish (warning: a few, like swordfish,
  • tilefish and some types of tuna are known to be contaminated with mercury)
  • Salmon (one of the healthiest foods you can eat due to the
  • high omega-3 fatty acid content - choose wild salmon over farmed)
  • Shellfish and other seafood
  • Eggs (you can even eat whole eggs in moderation, within your
  • calorie limit - the yolk contains a highly bioavailable source of lutein and
  • xeaxanthin, carotenoids which help protect against cataracts and macular
  • degeneration)
  • Dairy products, if you are not lactose intolerant (choose
  • low or nonfat dairy to save calories)

 

Healthy Fibrous
Vegetables and Green Foods (aka, "fibrous carbs")

  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Spinach
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Green Beans
  • Bell Peppers (green or red)
  • Zucchini (summer squash)
  • Tomatoes, natural tomato sauce, salsa
  • Lettuce and other salad greens (darker the better)
  • Kale
  • Cauliflower
  • Cabbage
  • Onions
  • ALL other green and fibrous carbs

 

Healthy Fruits
("Natural Simple Carbs)[image] DJKNV

 

You've heard it said a thousand times: eat more fruits and
veggies, and you can't hear it often enough. It's saddening that low carb
fanatics actually put restrictions on fruits. They are another nutritional
powerhouse. The fructose in fruit is the naturally-occurring kind, and there's
not that much of it, so you can relax; it's NOT the same thing as high fructose
corn syrup.

 

I would give you a list of fruits, but I'm sure you know
what they are and you already have your favorite types. Just two tips: Watch
out for dried fruit. One of the reasons fruit is healthy and helps you burn fat
is because it is high in fiber and high in water content. When you remove the
water you increase the calorie density. High calorie density foods should be
limited.

 

That goes for fruit juice too - if you drink fruit juice,
keep it to small quantities. Fruit juice is calorie dense, it has had the fiber
and pulp removed and doesn't activate the satiety centers in your brain like
whole food does.

 

  • ALL fruits (Except as above)

 

Healthy Non-Starchy
Vegetables and Natural Whole Grains

  • Sweet potatoes (or yams)
  • White potatoes
  • Brown rice
  • Oatmeal (the natural, unsweetened kind!)
  • Black eye peas
  • Lentils
  • Squash
  • Peas
  • Chick peas
  • Beans all kinds: black, pinto, navy, kidney, etc.
  • Quinoa (a natural whole grain)
  • 100% whole grain bread and pasta products (use in moderation
  • - even though they are made with the whole grain, they are lightly processed
  • and calorie dense)

 

Healthy Fats

  • Fatty fish (Wild Alaskan salmon, sardines, mackerel, trout[image] Fruit
  • Fish oil supplements (if you don't eat fatty fish)
  • Flaxseeds (ground)
  • Flaxseed oil (as a supplement, not for cooking)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Extra virgin coconut oil (for cooking; NOT hydrogenated
  • varieties)
  • Walnuts
  • Almonds
  • Other nuts
  • Seeds
  • Avocados
  • Olives
  • Natural peanut butter or nut butters (NOT the
  • sugar-sweetened kind)                                        

                                                                                                         

Story: The story of our game is that you are going into the body to follow the french fries which have been eaten by the body. You go through the mouth, down the esophagus, and into the stomach. You have to defeat the fats that they make and then get back out through the mouth.
