    Jamie Oliver talks a lot of bollocks at times !

    “There’s a lot of bollocks out there.” Jamie Oliver slams wellness experts for their unhealthy advice.

    It’s touted as the healthy wonder ingredient that will not only revolutionise your cooking but your beauty routine too, but celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is having none of it.

    Yes, we’re talking about the wellness industries obsession with coconut oil as a “healthier” option.

    “A lot of people say coconut oil is the best thing on the planet but it’s also one of the most saturated fats, so let’s get our facts right,” he told Body + Soul magazine.

    “There’s a lot of factually incorrect stuff, a lot of bollocks out there and some dangerous stuff as well. I’m conscious of trendy radical people endorsing things that you shouldn’t have,” he said.

    While it’s frequently praised and used by health and wellness bloggers in their recipes, Oliver is not alone in having concerns about coconut oil. Dietician and nutritionist Melanie McGrice says that there’s been a lot of confusion about coconut oil over the past few years.

    “Coconut oil is high in saturated fats – in fact it’s 93 per cent saturated (bad) fats, One teaspoon of coconut oil contains almost four grams of saturated fat,” she explains.

    While benefits of coconut oil include its stability at high temperatures and ability to help to increase good cholesterol, it’s so high in saturated fat that it will also increase bad cholesterol.

    And Jamie Oliver talks a lot of bollocks at times, but cannot fault him on his self aggrandisement and money making skills. Nothing wrong with natural saturated fats "‘health bloggers without the proper qualifications or expertise may be partly to blame" Without health bloggers we would all be shovelling the highly processed carbs and junk down our necks. Has Jamie stopped selling all the high carb and sugar foods in his restaurants? No he has started to charge a surcharge to his customers, more grist to his very large wallet.

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    I've only been to one of his restaurants once. I think that probably says all I need to say. Wink

    He said on mainstream media last week without immigrants all his businesses would have to close. Could this be because he pays poor wages for working very long hours? Meanwhile he has become a multi millionaire. He is a fantastic self publicist good luck to him, but I suspect he gets involved with no good cause unless there is a lot of mileage in it for him. That is how the game is played and millions suck up to the bullshit. We live in a world of complete bullshit, and the last thing most people want to know is the truth, I know these things. Have we not seen the lengths people will go to kick a sensible diet for a diabetic to death. Is not the NHS falling apart because of so much bullshit, especially regarding diabetes control.
