For years I have tried finding this same list on line and I can't. Tonight I rectified that mistake because I was spelling his name wrong. It's not Brewer it's Broer. A long time ago, May 4 1995 I attended a seminar that just had rapid fire speakers, all successful people in different fields. There was Zig Ziglar, financial author David Chilton, Olympian Silken Lauman, Jim Rohn, former Canadian Prime Minister Joe Clarke etc. I want to speak today about the nutritionist Dr. Ted Broer who I myself have found to be an inspiration. Below are some of his recommendations (and links) and my added notes will be in the usual red. Taken for the aforementioned really old note book that I hunted for tonight. All you people who think diet soft drinks are harmless, download the pdf files in my attachment section in the multiply page. . If the notes are lacking, Google the rest and believe what you want to believe.
Top 10 Foods Never to Eat
1. Pork/High Fat Luncheon Meats- it took nine years to really really sink in but I gave up all pork as he asked. That habit has lasted four and a half years and its worthy of its own eventual blog entry.
2. Shell fish- they are bottom feeders , see similar list below
3. Margarine/Hydrogenated Oils- he says butter is better. It does not make sense to avoid pouring this down the sink yet willingly let it in your body.
4. Aspartame / Nutrasweet- see the PDF attachments in my Multiply page Feb 24 2009 http://cornholiogogs.multiply.com/journal
5. Junk Food- if God's bacteria can not grow it, how good can it possibly be for you? His main example were those Hostess Twinkies type products.
7. Chlorine / Flouride
8. High Fat Dairy Products-
9. Caffeine- in this case do as I say and not do as I do. Still I only drink coffee once a day.
Top 5 Ways to Lose Body Fat
* Drink half your body weight in ounces of purified water daily.
* Eat low glycemic foods.
* Eat six small meals daily. Your daily calorie intake should be 10 times your desired weight. Example: (if desired weight is 180, multiply by 10 = 1800 calories daily, divided into 6 meals of 300 calories per meal)
* Take fat loss supplements, Conjulean and Cod Liver Oil.
* Exercise daily, cardio and resistance

"Top 10 Foods You Should NEVER EAT!!"
1. HOT DOGS, BACON, SAUSAGE, HAM, PEPPERONI (HIGH-FAT LUNCH MEATS)
• Increase risk of leukemia in children
• If eaten when a woman is pregnant, she has double the risk of brain cancer in her unborn child
2. ASPARTAME (Found in EQUAL & NUTRASWEET)
- Produce nitrous urea compounds
- High increase in risk of brain tumor
Symptoms: Headaches, Confusion, Depression, Insomnia, Memory Lapses
NOTE: WHEN PUT IN HOT LIQUID, ONE OF THE COMPONENTS IT BREAKS DOWN INTO IS WOOD ALCOHOL! THE COMBINATION OF EATING A HOT DOG AND DRINKING A DIET DRINK CREATES ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL CANCER-PRODUCING SUBSTANCES KNOWN TO MAN.
3. MARGARINE (HYDROGENATED OILS) Found in peanut butters like Jiff and Skippy.
Buy natural peanut butter
Use real butter, olive oil, canola oil instead
4. SHELLFISH (LOBSTER, SHRIMP, CRAB) According to Dr. Broer, a lobster is an arthropod, a cockroach is an arthropod! Unclean. Scavengers.
6. JUNK FOODS LIKE TWINKIES & STORE-BOUGHT CUPCAKES Better to eat a homemade cookie
7. CHLORINE IN YOUR WATER SUPPLY Increases heart disease & cancer risk
GET BOTTLED WATER OR USE A FILTER
8. HIGH-FAT DAIRY PRODUCTS
Use skim or low-fat milk, low-fat cottage cheese, sour cream, etc., whipped butter
9. CAFFEINE PRODUCTS
This is a short term "fix" Taps into your adrenals and causes fatigue later. Can increase risk of breast tumors 5 cups of coffee a day increases your risk of heart disease by 50%!
10. ALCOHOL PRODUCTS
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING DOCTOR TO DOCTOR! WE HOPE THESE SHOW NOTES ARE A BLESSING TO YOU! MAY GOD BLESS YOU
Because of my love for you, I am reading through my crappy 14 year old notes to give you the best information.
ASPARTAME: A CHRONICLE OF CRIME
Last year the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) passed the Truth in Food Labeling Act which mandated that food manufacturers disclose a complete list of their products ingredients, and that titles on food labels must honestly represent the contents within the package. This means that a Low Fat product must, in fact, be low in fat and that “light” means that the product is lighter in calories, not just in package. Thus, I am astonished that a product marketed as an artificial sweetener can carry the name NutraSweet, when 1) it is not nutritive by definition, and 2) it is shown to be a hazardous chemical causing severe side effects including headaches, seizures and even birth defects in laboratory animals. One would think that our government would protect us from products that are known to harm us, but in the case of Aspartame, which is marketed under the name of NutraSweet, they have not. If the public fully understood the irregularities in the research and development of aspartame and Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval process of this chemical, the cries of conspiracy would be heard far and wide. The path that took this chemical from the laboratory to your kitchen table is one wrought with deception and blatant conflicts of interest, not to mention what could be considered a conspiracy to market a product to Americans which has been proven to be harmful.

Ted Broer’s top 10 criminals (foods to avoid)
- All pork products – which he refers to as a homotoxin (human poison) including luncheon meat, ham, bacon and pork. “Eat a pig, look like a pig” is his great one-liner.
- Shellfish – which includes lobster, crab, shrimp, oysters, mussels and clams.
- Junk food – this covers all high fat, sweet foods, fast foods and white breads.
- Alcohol – all alcoholic beverages.
- High fat dairy products – including milk.
- Margarine – all margarines.
- Aspartame and diet sodas.
- Olestra – the fake fat.
- Caffeine – including coffee, tea and cola.
- Chlorine and fluoride – found in some regional tap waters.
There is, however, sound reasoning behind the choices he makes whichever way you look at them. Pork is one of the highest saturated fat meats with only approx 25% of its calories coming from the protein group and up to 75% of its calories coming from saturated fat. If you compare this to protein from pulses or grains the remaining calories outside of the protein are approximately 45% carbohydrate and the fat calories come from the good fat group. Pork is also often used in processed products such as luncheon meats, which brings along many hidden dangers, chemicals and additives, as well as being high in fat.
Broer’s shellfish list is high in cholesterol that may cause elevated levels of blood cholesterol. This may lead to furring up of the coronary arteries (atherosclerosis), which can lead to heart disease and heart failure. Although you have to remember here that fish as a group is a healthy option for protein.
Junk food I’m sure is no surprise to you. It is high in fat, sugars and kilocalories. Ted Broer holds a particularly easy-to-follow discussion on hydrogenated fats that appear in the junk food and margarines. Hydrogenated fats are fat oils that have been heated and then pumped with hydrogen to make them solid at room temperature (hydrogenated). This corrupts the fatty acid chain, changing its shape from a “cis” shape to a “trans fatty acid”. These are harmful to health and interfere with hormone production and are linked to coronary heart disease. These fats are often the hidden fats appearing in junk food or anything that a manufacturer may make from margarine products.
Interestingly, he includes white bread or highly refined bread as junk food. White bread is highly processed and responds in the blood the same as eating pure sugar. This causes insulin levels to rise in the blood as a response to keeping the blood sugar levels within normal range. Insulin also plays a part in fat storage so as well as feeling the yo-yo affect on energy of high blood sugar then low blood sugar, eating lots of white or refined bread products will increase your ability for fat storage.
Broer highlights several dangers from the liquids we consume such as caffeine, which is an addictive stimulant that can cause you to feel up one minute and down the next, as well as being a diuretic encouraging the body to expel more fluid than necessary, leaving you dehydrated. Alcohol appears on the list as it is high in calories, seven kcals per gram compared to protein and carbohydrate, which are four kcals per gram. Chlorine and fluoride are also fraught with dangers even if added to our drinking water for good reasons. There has over the years been a lot of research on aspartame, which appears as the brand product NutraSweet in many low-calorie drinks. One of its family products is phenylalanine, which a small minority of people cannot digest. Aspartame itself
is a naturally occurring amino acid so one view is that the body can digest it adequately and without risk. The opposing view is that aspartame has for a long time been linked to research on cancer but even now the jury is still out on it.
Broer’s do list
- Live one choice at a time.
- Do whatever you do consistently.
- Set nutritional goals.
- Drink at least eight glasses of pure water per day.
- Include adequate fibre in your diet.
- Take vitamin and mineral supplements with your daily meal.
- Eat the good fats Omega 3 and Omega 6, found in fish oils and seed oils.
- Exercise correctly and consistently.
- Learn how to manage your stress.
- Don’t eat the top 10 foods to avoid.
There is little question that substantial excess body fat increases your health risk and mortality. Given this threat any intervention recommendations to the public must focus on interventions that would educate the public on the dangers of poor lifestyle choices and the subsequent outcome. Taking his scare tactics, aside this book offers members of the public a gentle introduction to the physiology behind weight management and poor lifestyle choices.
