19 Nov STUBBORN WEIGHT LOSS – INCREASED LDL…?
Would you like to have:
- A drop in appetite
- Average drop of 400 calories per day
- Average weight loss 12kg in 6 months
- Drop in heamaglobin A1c, Hemoglobin A1c test is used as a standard tool to determine blood sugar control for patients with diabetes and fasting glucose
- Drop in insulin
- Drop in small LDLs, the particles which circulate in the blood increasing bad cholesterol levels
- Drop in triglycerides
- Drop in postprandial lipoproteins
- Rise in HDL (good cholesterol)
A drop in all these markers is a massive leap into health and longevity, lowering risk of coronary heat disease, type 2 diabetes and other chronic inflammatory disease processes.
We have never before been so dominated by grains, 50% of all our diets include wheat, corn and rice. This percentage is being increased all the time due to food manufacturing, fast food and government bodies.
Wholewheat bread has a glycemic index of 72, there are very few foods above 70, (dates, figs, refined gluten free products- full of tapioca starch, corn starch potato starch). Whole-wheat is the highest amongst all foods.
What is glycemic index (G.I)?
GI is how high blood sugar is raised after 90 minutes of eating. It provokes glycation, insulin release and increase in triglycerides. As a food product this is responsible for obesity, diabetes and cardio vascular disease. No other food has such an impact on raising blood sugar. Also then stimulates increased hunger and appetite for more carbohydrates becoming a viscous cycle of raised blood sugar, craving for more carbohydrates and fat storing.
High blood sugar also increases the risk of coronary plaque.
If you would like to be advised on how to follow a healthy non gluten diet and adjust blood markers for risk factors in coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance and weight loss please contact Susie for a nutritional consultation.
