Finally !

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/


Hey Friends,
I told my wife NOT to make one of my favorite foods ever again, last night.  It's called,  Macaroni, Cheese, and Tuna casserole.... and I like to put some Salsa or Picante sauce on top and some hot sauce too !!   I used to think that it could possibly be one of the most nutritious and tasty  foods on the planet at one time!    But I made the mistake of eating too late in the day/ supper, and having a 2nd portion.... Grrrrrr!   I was very uncomfortable and had fears of throwing up later, and prayed for a long time in bed last night.   Sometimes I just feel SO stupid, but today is another day, and then I stumbled upon this news article, that I thought was too good not to share.   Terri is gone again on another 'volunteer mission' taking a close friend for a doctor's check up after her surgery today, too.   It just snowed AGAIN last night U.P. in the 'Frozen Tundra.'   And the good Lord has given me another day of life.

But,  I am thinking that....  just what is left to eat now days with so much so-called "bad food" that makes us fat, sick, diabetic, and sluggish... LOL !   I just hope that I can learn something new today by following  up on this new study, and then sharing it with YOU !  Feedback is always welcome and appreciated.

When  I was a kid on the farm in Racine County, WI, I was tall for my age, but had big shoulders from hard work, but slim.   I should have lifted weights back then, but we didn't have any, and the Gym class didn't teach us the right way to lift...  as I ended up with a severe injury one night at school, doing a "Clean and Jerk" lift that could have killed me, but I broke both wrists and fore arms at the same time, in my senior year, and had casts on both arms, so that I had to drop out of Typing class!!   My Dad even had to give me a bath, and I got out of farm chores.   My arms still hurt after the casts came off, and I was afraid of not being able to train well in the Army, that I joined on August 21 st, 1967, at Fort Campbell, KY., after my graduation.   I joined because it was, more/ less a "rite of passage" in the Schuckman clan, but mainly because I didn't have enough money saved up for college.   I did finally get to go to college some 20 years latter  when Chrysler let go of 6000 people and tore down the auto plants in Kenosha, WI.   That caused a lot of  sorrow, heart break, and trouble for our community in WI., and also influenced my wife of 22 years to just LEAVE me, two years into that lay off, because I didn't make enough money for her, and decided to sell our nice house in Kenosha, WI.   But I wasn't the only one to have hard times---  and I believe that the Lord used those hard times to take away my foolish pride so that I would hunger for Him, and finally get Saved, in the Milwaukee Winter of 1994- 95.    That changed my whole life !  PTL.  
       Sometimes the Lord allows us to fall into a 'pressure cooker' to separate the gold ore from the dross/ imperfections, so that we can finally see the light.   It's a hard way to learn, but it works.   Anyone can function well in good, prosperous circumstances,  but add a little pressure, poor economy, and a stubborn, nagging wife, and BOOM !!   It's the "pressure" that forms a diamond from coal!   So,  I felt that my 2 years in Vietnam:  68- 70,  were but a 'walk in the park' compared to the next 40 some years back at home.    

Well, now I am come full circle, and a bit wiser, more disabled, but warm and cozy in a harsh climate, but happily married, for the most part.   We are right on the Eve of another huge devastation, and the KJV Bible just happens to agree with me.   Sorry, again, folks,   but things will NOT get better anytime soon -- but they will get much worse !!   I try to explain on my humble blog,  how I am personally preparing for this  mega change in our world society.    I belong to the world wide, Christian Community.   Too many of our  brothers are now sleeping at the switch, even putting their faith in human leaders who are godless, greedy and corrupt !!   Instead of informing, preparing their flocks, those clueless leaders are leading the rank and file away from  God, and have deserted the pure teachings of the KJV Bible !!  Shame, and a clear and present danger ! 

I am presently preparing a list of Priorities, on paper, so I can benefit other people that I had not even met yet, and help my friends too.  To God be the glory. 
And I just heard that we will get another big snow fall later in the week !

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

The #1 WORST Food that CAUSES Faster Aging (beware!)

Do you eat these foods that HARM your blood sugar and age your joints and skin faster?  Some are even deceptively marketed to you as "healthy" by giant food corporations.  Avoid or minimize these and look 5-10 years YOUNGER than your real age.
by Mike Geary - Certified Nutrition Specialist
& Catherine Ebeling - RN, BSN

Due to biochemical reactions in your body that occur with every type of food you eat on a daily basis, some foods age you FASTER than your real age, while other foods help to FIGHT aging.
Eat the wrong foods regularly, and you can look and feel 10 or more years OLDER than your real age (not fun!) ... but eat the right foods, and over time, you can start to look 5-10 years YOUNGER than your real age.
Three of the processes that go on inside your body that have a MAJOR impact on your rate of aging are called "glycation", "inflammation", and "oxidation".
When we talk about aging, we're not just talking about wrinkles on your skin or how thick your hair is... we're also talking about factors that you can't see, such as how well your organs function, and whether your joints are degrading.
Yes, I'm sure you'll agree this is much more important than just how you look superficially (although we'll show you how to improve BOTH below!)
With the title of this article, you might have guessed that obvious answers like sugar or trans fat would be what we talk about in this article.  Yes, we all already know those are bad, but I want to discuss another food that ages your body faster than normal... and it's one that you might not expect!
So let's dig right in and I'll show you how your rate of aging can be directly related to the foods you might eat every day, and how to protect yourself...

The #1 WORST food that ages you faster:
Wheat based foods (yes, even "whole wheat")
Before I tell you why wheat can actually speed up the aging process in your body, let's clarify some simple biochemistry in your body...

This deals with "glycation" in your body, and substances called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs).  These nasty little compounds called AGEs speed up the aging process in your body including damage over time to your organs, your joints, and of course, wrinkled skin.
So with that said, what is one of the biggest factors that increase production of AGEs inside your body?  This may surprise you, but high blood sugar levels over time dramatically increase age-accelerating AGEs in your body.  This is why type 2 diabetics many times appear that they have not aged well and look older than their real age.  But this age-increasing effect is not just limited to diabetics.
So, let's get back to how "whole wheat" relates to this...

Here is a little-known fact that's often covered up by the massive marketing campaigns by giant food companies that want you to believe that "whole wheat" is healthy for you... but the fact is that wheat contains a very unusual type of carbohydrate (not found in other foods) called Amylopectin-A, which has been found in some tests to spike your blood sugar HIGHER than even pure table sugar.
In fact, amylopectin-A (from wheat) raises your blood sugar MORE than almost any other carbohydrate source on earth based on blood sugar response testing that's documented in studies.
This means that wheat-based foods such as breads, bagels, cereals, muffins, and other baked goods often cause MUCH higher blood sugar levels than most other carbohydrate sources.  If you don't believe me, here's something you should know... I ran personal blood sugar tests on myself using a blood glucometer about 45 minutes after eating 2 slices of wheat bread vs eating a bowl of oatmeal, with equivalent grams of carbs.

The blood sugar test results:
2 slices of whole wheat toast:
45 minutes after consumption:  Blood sugar spiked from 86 fasting level to 155.

1 Bowl of Oatmeal (equivalent grams of carbs to 2 slices wheat toast)
45 minutes after consumption:   Blood sugar raised from 86 fasting level to 112

As you know now, the higher your average blood sugar levels are over time, the more AGEs are formed inside your body, which makes you age FASTER.  Clearly, the whole wheat spiked blood sugar MUCH higher than the oatmeal, and if you don't know, 155 is a massive blood sugar reading that will certainly contribute to faster aging if you eat wheat frequently.
You've probably also heard about the potential health-damaging effects of gluten (another problematic compound found in wheat that can cause inflammation in your digestive system) in the news recently, but this blood sugar aspect we just covered is not talked about that often, and is yet another reason to reduce or eliminate wheat-based foods in your diet.  Your body will thank you by aging slower and looking YOUNGER!
And losing bodyfat is typically another fun side effect of eliminating or reducing wheat in your diet!
Yet another problem with wheat-based foods and aging...
As it turns out, baked wheat products contain carcinogenic chemicals called acrylamides that form in the browned portion of breads, cereals, muffins, etc.  These carcinogenic acrylamides have been linked in studies to possible increased risk of cancer and accelerated aging.  Note that acrylamides are also found in high levels in other browned carbohydrate sources such as french fries or any other browned starchy foods.

Don't worry though... There's a trick that you can use to protect yourself from these carcinogenic acrylamides, and it has to do with eating the RIGHT foods that COUNTERACT damage from these nasty chemicals.  I'll show you how to find the EXACT foods that protect your body on the next page!

Other foods to watch out for that can increase aging in your body include corn-based foods that also disrupt blood sugar highly (corn cereals, corn chips, corn syrup), soybean oil and other "vegetable" oils that contain excessively refined and processed fats that cause inflammation in your body, and also excess sugars from candies, cakes, and sweetened drinks.
But the good news is...
We'll show you how to find plenty of delicious foods, spices, herbs, and nutrients that PROTECT your body from aging on the next page!
