We don’t need to fanatically count grams of fat, carbs or calories to maintain an ideal weight and/or to lose excess weight. All we have to do is learn how to control our blood sugar. Healthy weight management in addition to its obvious overall health benefits has significant anti-aging benefits as well.
We can experience cellular rejuvenation in the body by helping to ‘reprogram’ our genetic code to stop the storage of excess fat and the loss of youthful muscle mass. As we will demonstrate, we can even turn on the genes that suppress appetite and turn off the genetic switch that tells the body to store fat by controlling blood sugar levels. If blood sugar levels are too low, we cannot nourish our muscles and they begin to break down. We lose precious muscle mass. If insulin levels are too high, we put a lock on the body’s ability to burn fat for energy, and the body will store the fat instead.
How to keep blood sugar levels steady
-Beans and lentils stabilize blood sugar and and are a key component of an anti-inflammatory diet from other sugary or starchy foods.
-A meal with legumes raises blood sugar very slowly and moderately, and even moderates the blood sugar response to the next meal you eat, whether this next meal includes beans or not.
Just ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon mixed in water or tea will help stabilize blood sugar for days—in one study, the group that took the cinnamon reported healthy blood sugar levels up to three weeks after consuming the cinnamon!
-Omega-3 rich foods and fish oil turn off the gene that instructs the body to store fat
-Caralluma Fimbriata, a plant used for centuries in India, blocks fat formation by blocking a vital enzyme called citrate lyase forcing the body to burn its fat reserves, accelerating the rate of fat loss by the body, supresses appetite and generates lean muscle mass by not only inhibits fat synthesis but also increases the burning of fat.
-Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) When taken in effective doses, decreases body fat, especially in the abdominal area, helps block the absorption of fat and sugar into fat cells and increases insulin sensitivity, which will then decrease blood sugar and circulating insulin levels
-Niacin Bound Chromium promotes proper insulin function and normal blood sugar levels, healthy blood cholesterol levels, normal blood pressure, and cardiovascular health
Other key nutrients for weight loss and blood sugar stabilization
-Carnitine and acetyl-l-carnitine, which enhance the sensitivity of insulin receptors, helping to decrease blood sugar and circulating levels of insulin.
-Maitake SX Fraction enhances insulin sensitivity for controlling blood sugar levels. .
-Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) from borage oil improves cell sensitivity to insulin, reducing our chance of developing diabetes, heart disease and excess body fat. as a dietary supplement or as recommended by your health professional.
-Alpha lipoic acid increases insulin sensitivity by increasing the body’s ability to take glucose into the cells.
-CoQ10 maximizes the burning of foods for fuel, helping to normalize fats in our blood.
