Diane Kress: “The 25 Medical Conditions that are linked by the same COMMON DENOMINATOR”

the-link

 

 Fix the common denominator and prevent, control, or cure these conditions without added medications

 This common denominator is rarely (if ever) discussed by the medical community.  Diane Kress’ mission is two-fold:

1. To pass along the knowledge of the common bond  that links  the top diseases and conditions we will face  in our lifetimes.

2. And… To provide a solution to prevent, control, or cure these conditions.

Please Pass this article along to your family, friends, coworkers, MD’s , medical specialists, health care providers,  and all your contacts.  This article will save money spent on medications and medical visits, frustration about getting sicker and needing more medications, time spent “trying to get healthy” without addressing the root of your particular illness, and can even save your life.

THIS IS QUITE LIKELY THE MOST IMPORTANT ARTICLE YOU WILL EVER READ REGARDING YOUR PRESENT AND FUTURE HEALTH.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Depression-and-stroke-

The story begins here with an NIH study linking depression and stroke.

Which comes first; a stroke or depression?  NIH funded research says depression.  Diane Kress agrees but stresses that this study addresses only the tip of the iceberg.  Let Diane Kress shine a light on the visible iceberg AND expose its core….

The Latest NIH Study on depression and stroke: http://www.medpagetoday.com/Cardiology/Strokes/51533?xid=nl_mpt_DHE_2015-05-15&eun=g691540d0r&userid=691540&mu_id=5855717

This study concludes that depression comes before stroke and that people over age 50 who are  depressed with symptoms have a 50% greater risk of stroke than those without depression.

These statistics may be true….but they are only telling part of the story.  I will help clarify the whole story and give you a solution so you can make changes starting today that will decrease your risk of depression, stroke…..and about 25 other disease states and medical conditions.

Directly from the study report on MedPage.com.

“The researchers noted that biological mechanisms driving the depression-stroke link could be long term — such as the impact on risk factors like hypertension and atherosclerosis, or short term — such as cerebrovascular reactivity or atrial fibrillation.  “Further research should continue to examine possible mediators of the relationship between depressive symptoms and stroke.”

While many health provider networks have begun to integrate cardiovascular, diabetes and depression care with interdisciplinary teams of health professionals, many individual clinicians still do not recognize the importance of depression as a risk factor for other health conditions.

 

And after reading the previous paragraph, I  screamed aloud

 screaming-woman-businessinsider-com

It’s great that the NIH is funding studies that are giving people a glimpse into the interrelationships between certain disease conditions.  Let me save the NIH time and research money:

The following 25 medical conditions or diseases have a common denominator that you were not aware of….. Until Now

Depression

Overweight/Obesity

Visceral fat (abdominal fat that builds around the stomach and between organs)

NAFLD (non-alcohol related fatty liver disease)

Sleep Apnea

GERD

Cardiovascular disease

Atherosclerosis

Stroke

Heart Attack

Hypertension

Elevated cholesterol

Elevated triglycerides

Low Vitamin D levels

High Fasting insulin (8 or over)

Metabolic Syndrome

Insulin Resistance

Hypoglycemia

Pre diabetes

Gestational diabetes

Type 2 diabetes

PCOS

Cancer (breast, colon, skin, uterine, ovaries, prostate)

Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease

Pancreatitis (non -alcohol related)

 

 What is the Common Denominator, The Core Problem, The Root of the Problem that links 25 medical conditions?

 

INSULIN IMBALANCE

 

The common denominator of my “top 25 diseases” is insulin imbalance.  The type of metabolism that causes insulin imbalance is genetically- mediated and environmental- stress driven.  Insulin imbalance is progressive and, unless stopped in its tracks, will contribute to one or many of the top 25 diseases.  Control the insulin imbalance and prevent, control, or cure the insulin related disease.

65% of the adult US population has the genes for this fat- producing metabolism.  Only 35% of the US adult population escapes insulin imbalance; it’s simply not in their genes.

In this short article, the reader can learn everything needed to diagnose Metabolism B and the simple lifestyle plan that controls this type of metabolism.

 

Metabolism B

You may be familiar with the terms metabolic syndrome or syndrome X.  I wanted to make understanding the type of metabolism you have easy; so I call the 2 different types of metabolism:  Metabolism A and Metabolism B.

Met-a-or-Met-b (1)

Metabolism A:  Normal insulin production throughout life. 35% of the US adult population has Met A.

Metabolism B:  Having the genetic predisposition to imbalanced/uncontrolled insulin that develops progressively in the face of environmental stressors.  65% of the adult US population has Met B.

 

Stressors that increase tripping the gene for Met B:

 Over 65% of the population is born with the genetic predisposition to metabolic syndrome or Metabolism B.  Turning on the gene for Met B follows a progressive path.  The older you become and the more environmental stressors you experience during your life, the increased risk of turning on the gene for Metabolism B and acquiring the top 20 health conditions and complications

 

The Stressors.

Increasing Age

Hormonal changes (puberty, pregnancy, lactation, peri- menopause, menopause, thyroid disease)

Inactivity or sedentary lifestyle

Excessive carbohydrate intake (“good” and “bad carbs” count)

Emotional Stress

Pain

Illness

Surgery

Certain medications (OCA’s, beta blockers, prednisone, etc)

If a person has the genes for Metabolism B, an accumulation of these stressors makes the likelihood of the onset and progression of Met B to include some or most medical conditions related to insulin imbalance.   If a person can minimize these stressors, the likelihood of becoming obese, overweight, and diabetic decreases.

You cannot erase genes, but you can help impact their impact on health.

Remember, at the core of the top 10 disease/conditions listed earlier is INSULIN IMBALANCE. 

 

How do you know if you have Met B?

One way is to have FASTING lab work to identify (through your objective labs) if you have Met B.  These labs are typically drawn during a routine physical exam and should be checked on  an annual basis*:

Fasting lab work that includes:

Glucose

A1C

Total Cholesterol

LDL Cholesterol

HDL Cholesterol

Triglycerides

Vitamin D

You can ask your physician for the following routine labs to gain all the information you need for your diagnosis:

Metabolic panel

Lipid profile

Vitamin D level

*If you take medication for controlling any of these labs, realize that your numbers are artificially “treated” with medication.  So, if you take medication for glucose or A1C, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, or Vitamin D….you can automatically put a check-mark for Met B.

When your labs return, make sure to get your own copy.  Look for the listed labs on your results, and check your labs against the following Met B target zones as these values indicate you do have Met B:

These are the labs and lab ranges that indicate Metabolism B

Glucose:  Under 70 or over 85 equals Met B

A1C (hemoglobin A1C):  Under 5.3 or over 5.6 equals Met B

Total cholesterol: Over 199 can equal Met B

LDL cholesterol: Over 99 equals Met B

HDL cholesterol:  Under 45 equals Met B

Triglycerides: Over 99 equals Met B

Vitamin D: Under 40 equals Met B

******If you have one or several of the 25 conditions/diseases linked to insulin imbalance, insist on these labs.  If you can convince your MD to order fasting insulin, and your results are 8 or above, you are absolutely over-producing insulin!

 

 

The Symptoms of Uncontrolled Met B

Signs and symptoms

If you don’t have lab work or your lab work clearly indicates uncontrolled Met B, check to see if you have the following Met B symptoms:

  1. Chronic fatigue: Waking up tired, getting woozy on your commute to work, after lunch, late afternoon, and after dinner.
  2. Over-loving and a strong preference for carbohydrate foods: Bagels, pizza, burritos, French Fries, ice cream, chips, pretzels, snack crackers, pasta, rice, cookies, candy, desserts, fruit, potatoes, corn, etc.
  3. Poor short term memory, difficulty focusing and remembering, racing thoughts and/or brain fog.
  4. Short fuse, bad temper, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks
  5. Mild depression, lack of motivation, lack of drive
  6. Sleep issues: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Mind races when you get up during the night.
  7. Very easy and quick weight gain.
  8. Increasing belly fat, back fat, love handles, muffin top
  9. Increasing aches and pains. Feel older than your age.  Joint pain and stiffness.  Headaches.
  10. Alcohol has a greater impact.
  11. Caffeine has less of an impact. You can drink a double espresso and go to sleep soon afterward.
  12. Decreased libido, erectile dysfunction (ED), yeast infections, lack of desire to initiate sex.
  13. Blurry vision that comes and goes, night driving problems, light sensitivity, teary eyes/dry eyes.

 

Based on your fasting lab work and your symptoms, it is easy to diagnosis Metabolism B.  Over 65% of the adult population has uncontrolled Met B and is NOT being treated appropriately.  As a result, 65% of the adult population is getting heavier, sicker, and requiring more prescription medications with higher doses.  Out of every 10 people, 6.5 will develop pre diabetes or type 2 diabetes in their lifetime and will become overweight or obese.

If uncontrolled Met B is not treated with the correct lifestyle, all efforts for weight loss and to get and stay healthy are in vain.

 

In understandable language, an explanation of Met B

After years of research in medical nutrition therapy for those who were overweight or obese and slowly –but- surely developing the same host of 25 medical conditions….I came to the conclusion that every body is not  created the same in terms of underlying metabolism.  Some bodies can have success on a low calorie diet with increased activity (less than 35% of the population).  These people have normal insulin all of their lives.  I call this type of physiology; Metabolism A.

But, the overwhelming majority of the population develops a progressive INSULIN IMBALANCE.  The majority of overweight people don’t have success with long term weight and fat loss when they decrease calories and try to eat less…But they DO have long term success with weight/fat loss and improving the 25 medical conditions when they normalize their insulin!

Insulin is a fat gain hormone.  Met B’s begin to overproduce the fat gain hormone and begin to build excess fat on their body (belly fat), in their blood (LDL cholesterol and triglycerides), between and on their vital organs (visceral fat), and in their liver (NAFLD).  Met B’s are FATTY because of progressive excess INSULIN PRODUCTION.

We  must normalize insulin to decrease fat on the body…all areas of the body: belly fat, back fat, scale weight and inches lost, improved cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugar, Vitamin D and much more.

The “calories in/calories out” diet we’ve been told to follow  to lose weight was never  based on normalizing insulin; it’s only based on reducing calorie intake and increasing activity.  If a diet does not normalize insulin, the DIET fails for over 65% of the population.

 

THE SOLUTION

For those with uncontrolled Met B (excess insulin production and fat gain),   the solution is clearly detailed in The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD CDE

 

The Conclusion

The Metabolism Miracle program works, EVERY TIME.  It is a lifetime lifestyle.  There are no tricks, smoke and mirrors or gimmicks.  It is the real deal.  Everyone in the US (and around the world) who is struggling with weight and weight related health issues, medical conditions, and illnesses needs to be tested for Met B.  They can use the lab work approach to diagnosis or the physical symptoms diagnosis or both.

You can find the books at the sites listed below.  They are all available in paperback and as e-books. If you want to bulk purchase these books (at half the cost) for your organization, hospital, house of worship, group, or institution, contact dietquestions@ymail.com.

The Diabetes Miracle is Diane Kress’ most detailed work to date.  When anyone with uncontrolled Met B does not normalize insulin, he will progress  to pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes.  In addition to his elevated blood sugar, he will continue to gain weight and body fat AND experience elevations in blood pressure, cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and decreases in Vitamin D and HDL (good cholesterol).

Many people are overwhelmed by a diagnosis of pre diabetes or type 2 diabetes.

Diane Kress uses her understandable writing style and wealth of “state of the science” research to explain the disease process AND provide the diet and lifestyle that controls your weight and weight -related health issues.  A must read for everyone who has pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes.  The Diabetes Miracle is the only resource you will ever need for pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

Diane Kress presents the NIH study that shows “scientific proof” that peoples’ metabolic makeup impacts weight loss. (So, “Calories in/Calories out” is NOT the solution????)


obesity

Attention National Institutes of Health (NIH):

Diane Kress spoon- feeds the NIH the reason and solution for their study findings: “Some people lose weight easier than others because of metabolic differences.”

“Please forward to all your contacts.  We need to take action now and save our health and the weight/health/future of our children and grandchildren” Diane Kress

The NIH article can be found here:  http://www.stonehearthnewsletters.com/some-people-lose-weight-easier-than-others-because-of-metabolism-differences-scientific-proof/obesity/#sthash.Fpiux1KP.tgbuxACB.dpbs

 

Researchers at NIH found scientific proof “supporting the commonly held belief that people with certain physiologies lose less weight than others when limiting calories.”

For the record:

I have repeatedly contacted the NIH, AMA, AND, Harvard Nutrition Committee,   and The White House over the past twelve years with my research findings based on long term weight/fat loss and improved health markers for 6000 patients at my private practice in medical nutrition therapy at The Nutrition Center of Morristown, NJ.

My conclusion: “Statistics show that over 65% of the US adult population has great difficulty losing weight and keeping it off.”  The medical community’s advise has always been:  To lose weight you must. eat fewer calories and get more physical activity.  The result?  We are now at epidemic levels of obesity, diabetes, and weight related medical conditions.

The cause of the majority of overweight/obesity has always been a  genetically- mediated, environmental- stress driven metabolism”.   And not everyone has the genes for this metabolism.  But….only 35% of people succeed with weight/fat loss on low calorie/less food diets.  Over 65% of people require a totally different way of eating.

It has taken over 12 years for one of the institutions I repeatedly contacted to do a very small study (12 people) on this research and proof.  And they are labeling this 12 person study:  Scientific Proof.

I gave these institutions the scientific proof of existence and the treatment method 12 years ago.  And I contacted these groups many times without so much as a response.

What NIH’s micro-research study calls a “thrifty metabolism” is actually a type of metabolism I labeled Metabolism B…or Met B. If you are overweight or obese, there is over a 65% chance that you have Met B.

Quote from NIH’s  “study” : “While behavioral factors such as adherence to diet affect weight loss to an extent, our study suggests we should consider a larger picture that includes individual physiology – and that weight loss is one situation where being thrifty doesn’t pay.” (Readers: substitute the words “having undiagnosed Met B” for the vague term “thrifty” in NIH’s quote)

Also from NIH: “What we’ve learned from this study may one day enable a more personalized approach to help people who are obese achieve a healthy weight,” said Director Griffin P. Rodgers, M.D. “This study represents the latest advance in NIDDK’s ongoing efforts to increase understanding of obesity.”

 

NHI 3

NIH: Let me help speed your efforts to increase your understanding of obesity:

The diagnosis and treatment already exists, but the NIH, AMA, AND, and The White House has consciously chosen to ignore it. At this rate, the NIH will pronounce a solution to the devastating epidemic of obesity and diabetes  another 12 years from now.  In that time period, millions will suffer from medical conditions related to overweight/obesity.

In this short article, the reader can learn everything needed to diagnose Metabolism B and the simple lifestyle treatment method.  (This solution requires NO medication and in most cases, decreases or eliminates need for weight-related medicine for hypertension, elevated glucose, A1C, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and Vitamin D deficiency. The solution also decreases the risk of cancer: breast, colon, skin, prostate, pancreas, prostate, ovaries, uterus, testicles and Alzheimer’s disease/dementia.

 Why-Diets-Dont-Work-Great-information-

Stressors that increase tripping the gene for Met B:

 Over 65% of the population is born with the genetic predisposition to metabolic syndrome or Metabolism B.  Turning on the gene for Met B follows a  progressive path.  The older you become and the more environmental stressors you experience during your life, the increased risk of turning on the gene for Metabolism B and acquiring health conditions and complications

The Stressors.

Increasing Age

Hormonal changes (puberty, pregnancy, lactation, peri- menopause, menopause, thyroid disease)

Inactivity or sedentary lifestyle

Excessive carbohydrate intake (“good” and “bad carbs” count)

Emotional Stress

Pain

Illness

Surgery

Certain medications (OCA’s, beta blockers, prednisone, etc)

 

If a person has the gene for what I call Metabolism B, the accumulation of these stressors makes the likelihood of the onset and progression of Met B from metabolic syndrome to pre diabetes to type 2 diabetes.  If a person can minimize these stressors, the likelihood of becoming obese, overweight, and diabetic decreases.

You cannot erase a gene, but you can help impact its progression.  In this case, it’s all in the lifestyle of the person.

 

How do you know  if you have Met B?

One way is to have FASTING lab work to identify (through your objective labs) if you have Met B.  These labs are typically drawn during a routine physical exam and should be checked on  an annual basis*:

Fasting lab work that includes:

Glucose

A1C

Total Cholesterol

LDL Cholesterol

HDL Cholesterol

Triglycerides

Vitamin D

You can ask your physician for the following routine labs to gain all the information you need for your diagnosis:

Metabolic panel

Lipid profile

Vitamin D level

*If you take medication for controlling any of these labs, realize that your numbers are artificially “treated” with medication.  So, if you take medication for glucose or A1C, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, or Vitamin D….you can automatically put a check-mark for Met B.

When your labs return, make sure to get your own copy.  Look for the listed labs on your results, and check your labs against the following Met B target zones as these values indicate you do have Met B:

These are the labs and lab ranges clearly showing Metabolism B

Glucose:  Under 70 or over 85 equals Met B

A1C (hemoglobin A1C):  Under 5.3 or over 5.6 equals Met B

Total cholesterol: Over 199 can equal Met B

LDL cholesterol: Over 99 equals Met B

HDL cholesterol:  Under 45 equals Met B

Triglycerides: Over 99 equals Met B

Vitamin D: Under 40 equals Met B

Symptoms of uncontrolled Met B

If you don’t have lab work or your lab work clearly indicates uncontrolled Met B, check to see if you have the following Met B symptoms:

  1. Chronic fatigue: Waking up tired, getting woozy on your commute to work, after lunch, late afternoon, and after dinner.
  2. Over-loving and a strong preference for carbohydrate foods: Bagels, pizza, burritos, French Fries, ice cream, chips, pretzels, snack crackers, pasta, rice, cookies, candy, desserts, fruit, potatoes, corn, etc.
  3. Poor short term memory, difficulty focusing and remembering, racing thoughts and/or brain fog.
  4. Short fuse, bad temper, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks
  5. Mild depression, lack of motivation, lack of drive
  6. Sleep issues: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Mind races when you get up during the night.
  7. Very easy and quick weight gain.
  8. Increasing belly fat, back fat, love handles, muffin top
  9. Increasing aches and pains. Feel older than your age.  Joint pain and stiffness.  Headaches.
  10. Alcohol has a greater impact.
  11. Caffeine has less of an impact. You can drink a double espresso and go to sleep soon afterward.
  12. Decreased libido, erectile dysfunction (ED), yeast infections, lack of desire to initiate sex.
  13. Blurry vision that comes and goes, night driving problems, light sensitivity, teary eyes/dry eyes.

 

Based on your fasting lab work and your symptoms, it is easy to diagnosis Metabolism B.  Over 65% of the adult population has uncontrolled Met B and is NOT being treated appropriately.  As a result, 65% of the adult population is getting heavier, sicker, and requiring more prescription medications with higher doses.  Out of every 10 people, 6.5 will develop pre diabetes or type 2 diabetes in their lifetime and will become overweight or obese.

If uncontrolled Met B is not treated with the correct lifestyle, all efforts for weight loss and to get and stay healthy are in vain.

breast cancer and belly

In understandable language, an explanation of Met B

After years of research in medical nutrition therapy for those who were overweight or obese and slowly –but- surely developed the same host of medical conditions including: high cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, glucose, A1C and low Vitamin D and HDL cholesterol as well as developing the same medical host of medical conditions including: inability to lose weight and keep it off, hypertension, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, hypoglycemia, pre diabetes, gestational diabetes, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, infertility, PCOS, GERD, sleep apnea, dementia/Alzheimer’s disease, NAFLD (non alcohol fatty liver disease), pancreatitis and more… I realized there had to be a common denominator with the majority of the overweight/obese population.

Like the NIH study finally concludes: Not every body is created the same in terms of underlying metabolism.  Some bodies can have success on a low calorie diet with increased activity (less than 35% of the population).  These people have normal insulin release all of their lives.  I call this type of physiology; Metabolism A.

But, the overwhelming majority of the population develops a progressive INSULIN IMBALANCE.  The majority of overweight people don’t have success with long term weight and fat loss when they decrease calories and try to eat less…But they DO have long term success when they normalize their insulin!

Insulin is a fat gain hormone.  Met B’s begin to overproduce the fat gain hormone and begin to build excess fat on their body (belly fat), in their blood (LDL cholesterol and triglycerides), between their vital organs, and in their liver (NAFLD).  Met B’s are FATTY because of  excess INSULIN PRODUCTION.

They must normalize insulin to decrease fat on the body…all areas of the body: belly fat, back fat, scale weight and inches lost, improved cholesterol, triglcyerides, blood pressure, blood sugar, Vitamin D and much more.

The “calories in/calories out” diet we’ve been told to follow  to lose weight was never  based on normalizing insulin; it’s only based on reducing calorie intake and increasing activity.  If a diet does not normalize insulin, the DIET fails for over 65% of the population.

 

THE SOLUTION

For those with uncontrolled Met B (excess insulin production and fat gain)  The solution is clearly detailed in The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD CDE

 

The Conclusion

I sent all the data from my research on over 6000 face to face patients to the National Institute of Health beginning 12 years ago.  This data was also sent to the AMA, AND, Harvard’s Nutrition Committee, and The White House.  In addition, I sent them the program I developed to solve this “root of obesity” problem…I sent them boxes of my books.

The Metabolism Miracle program works, EVERY TIME.  It is a lifetime lifestyle.  There are no tricks, smoke and mirrors or gimmicks.  It is the real deal.  Everyone in the US (and around the world) who is struggling with weight and weight related health issues, medical conditions, and illnesses needs to be tested for Met B.  They can use the lab work approach to diagnosis or the physical symptoms diagnosis or both.

Forget about the NIH, AMA, AND, Harvard Nutrition Committee, or The White House finding the reason and then finally give you the solutionfor the obesity/diabetes epidemics.  They are fully aware of the cause and the solution.  Our being overweight and manifesting a myriad of medical conditions based on our weight fills the coffers of the agencies themselves.  If their focus is on money (the agency or institution’s very funding)…they have zero motivation to promote a lifestyle plan that works.

You can find the books at the sites listed below.  They are all available in paperback and as e-books. If you want to bulk purchase these books (at half the cost) for your organization, hospital, house of worship, group, or institution, contact dietquestions@ymail.com.  President Obama…how about purchasing this program for US schools?  We CAN influence the youth of our country by sharing with them a path to health and wellness…

Medications for hypertension and statins do NOT stop plaque build-up. The answer is ______________

plaque yes

Very interesting article on Medpage.com.  “Intensive Therapy Fails to Slow Atherosclerosis”. 

In short, despite intensive therapy (involving statins and medications), for patients who received stents to treat narrowed, weakened, or blocked arteries plaque continued to form after drug intervention.  On paper, their medications showed lower cholesterol and blood pressure with medication, but harmful plaque continued to form.  The author of the article were stymied as to why plaque would continue to be a problem

The original article on Medpage.com can be found at: http://www.medpagetoday.com/Cardiology/Atherosclerosis/51424

My comment was posted after the article.

05/09/15    Over 65% of US adults have the genetic predisposition to metabolic syndrome (elevated blood glucose, blood pressure, LDL, triglycerides, low Vitamin D, high levels of circulating insulin and resultant insulin resistance. Yes, taking statins and blood pressure lowering medication force blood pressure and cholesterol into normal range…..but NO….these medications won’t stop the build up of dangerous plaque. 65% of US adults are over-producers of the fat gain hormone; insulin. Excess insulin causes fat growth in the arteries, between the organs, in the liver (NAFLD), and circulating in the blood as evidenced by high cholesterol and triglycerides. If insulin is not normalized, the inflammation, hardening, and blocking of blood vessels with plaque will just continue to perpetuate. Follow the physiology and Read Diane Kress’ The Metabolism MIracle. Then, recommend it to all your patients with metabolic syndrome, pre diabetes, type 2 diabetes…..

The cholesterol and blood pressure may register as normal for those with atherosclerosis with medicinal therapies.  But….unless the core problem of insulin imbalance is normalized, plaque will continue to fill, harden, and block the vessels of those with atherosclerosis….Diane Kress, RD CDE

“No Countable Carb” PIZZA? Delicious!

veggie pizza yes

I made 2 varieties of “Neutral Pizza” for my family today.  (My “kids” are here for Mother’s Day weekend!).  The pizza crust?  The Great Low Carb Bread Company (GLCBC) makes a delicious, high quality “no countable carbs” pizza crust.  I carefully sliced it in half to make 2 thin crust pizza crusts, drizzled the crust with olive oil and added marinara sauce (tomatoes and spices only).  Then, I topped the pizza with cheese, thinly sliced Bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, fresh basil,  and olives.  The other crust was topped with sliced fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, a little salt and pepper. We also had a huge garden salad….all this for NO countable carbs.  HEAVEN!  http://www.shop.greatlowcarb.com/

What the multi-billion dollar weight loss industry does NOT want you to know about “THE CLOCK.

clock 4

 THE CLOCK IS TICKING

 By leaving this one piece of information out of all weight loss diets, you are sure to lose/regain/lose/regain and keep the “weight loss industry” coffers filled to the brim.

The human body is a machine, a top of the line, expertly designed machine…like a Lamborghini.

 lamborghini

When healthy, the body works in a very precise and methodical way with intricate connections between its systems. Cells, organs, glands, muscle and bones are all connected and back each other up to keep the body alive and well.  There are even survival mechanisms that immediately activate when the top tier mechanisms and actions don’t work properly.  The mission of the entire body is to stay alive…at all costs.

Two Sources of Blood Glucose contribute to your weight; and one is invisible!

 With that said, there is an optimal fuel source for the body: blood glucose.  Blood glucose is normally derived from carbohydrate foods or glycogen that has been stored in the liver and muscles.  Blood glucose can, if necessary, be derived from the breakdown of protein and fat.  But…in the course of a normal day, blood glucose is derived from carbohydrate in foods and glycogen release from the liver and muscle.

 

 clock 3

 The Liver Has More Impact on blood glucose than carbohydrate consumption!

 I’m reasonably sure that most people, including MD’s, RN’s, and RD’s, are not familiar with the liver’s impact on body weight, body fat percentage, cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, Vitamin D levels, blood glucose, and inflammatory factors.  Yes, the liver releases stored blood glucose for over 12 hours each and every day.  Carbohydrate actually fuels fewer hours than the liver!

 

clock 2

This article is NOT Circadian Rhythm…It is about your 5 Hour Clock

 The human body runs on a 4-5 hour clock.  Each 24 hour period has 6 four hour blocks of time.   This “clock” is working when you are awake and when you are asleep.  The 4-5 hour clock is working 24/7..without your knowledge.

Under normal circumstances, the carbohydrate you ingest at a meal or snack has a life span of about 4-5 hours.  If you don’t replace carbohydrates in a meal or snack until after the 5 hour mark, the brain registers low blood glucose and sends a signal to the pancreas to release the “blood glucose rising” hormone; glucagon.  Glucagon travels to the liver and signals a need to release glycogen stores (stored glucose).  So…your blood glucose will stay in the normal range either from the carbohydrate you eat or this quiet but potent self- feeding mechanism of the liver.

Most people are not aware of the 5 hour clock or the fact that 5 hours or more without ingesting some carb causes the liver to step up to the plate and self- feed with glycogen stores.  This is a built in survival mechanism for the human body.

Noteworthy: When the liver engages, it doesn’t release a teeny tiny amount of glycogen.  This survival mechanism releases the equivalent of 45-65 grams net carb over the upcoming 4-5 hours.  Without your knowledge, your liver fed you the amount of carbohydrate in a NY-style bagel.

65% of US adults over-release insulin due to overeating carbs and waiting too long to eat!

 Keep in mind:  Over 65% of the US adult population over-responds to any rise in blood sugar with an excess release of the fat gain hormone, insulin. 

In “normal metabolism”; the pancreas releases the CORRECT amount of insulin whether the rise in blood glucose occurs from ingesting carbohydrate or from liver glycogen release.  The correct amount of insulin helps open the correct number of receptors on muscle and fat cells.  The circulating blood sugar is left in the normal range. There is peace in this body.

But, if you are in the majority of people (65% of American adults), your pancreas will over-respond to a rise in blood sugar with EXCESS insulin.  Instead of the correct amount of insulin opening the right number of muscle and fat cells, an overabundance of insulin opens excess fat cells and over- processes blood glucose into fat stores.

belly fat

Circulating blood glucose is left lower than normal as excess glucose is ushered into excess fat cells.  You become fatter on your body (belly fat/back fat/muffin top), fatter in the blood (higher cholesterol, triglycerides), fatter between your major organs, and fatter in your liver (non-alcohol fatty liver disease!).  Excess insulin causes your blood sugar to drop too low AND makes you fat!

The resultant “lower than normal blood glucose” causes the brain to signal you to “find and eat more carbohydrate.”  You get hungry, crave carbs, and feel weak, a little dizzy, unfocused, and you “need to eat right away.”

If you do eat carbohydrates to answer the brain’s plea, excess insulin releases, excess blood glucose stores as fat, and resultant low blood sugar happens all over again. You are in a vicious cycle.

If you ignore the brain and don’t eat (If you are dieting…you feel you should avoid the calories and ignore the craving), the liver will automatically step up to the plate and release glycogen that will cause blood sugar to rise, excess insulin to be released by the pancreas, and lead to excess glucose stored as fat, lower than normal blood glucose, and more cravings.

 

Is Breakfast really an important meal?  I’m not even hungry when I wake up.

 

If the last meal you eat begins at 6PM and you force yourself not to snack before bed in an effort to lose weight….you don’t realize it, but every 5 hour block after 6PM …until you eat again….your liver will self-feed meals every 4-5 hours.  You won’t even realize this is happening.  So, you physically consume dinner at 6PM, but you are also quietly fed by the liver at 11PM, 4AM, 9AM without even knowing it.

It’s even worse if you skip breakfast.  If you skip breakfast don’t eat until lunchtime, and have dinner, you may think you have eaten twice during the day when you have actually eaten twice through your mouth and 4 times from the liver…6 meals.  You have lunch at 12:30PM, dinner at 6PM, 11:00 PM (liver), 4:00 AM (liver), 9:00AM (liver), 12:30 lunch, 5:30 (liver), 6:00 (dinner)…and the cycle continues.

If a person does not eat, the liver will step up to the plate.  Without even knowing, the  majority of people struggling with weight, diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol (those with metabolic syndrome) will forever be trapped in the cycle of obesity.

YOU can control what you eat at the meal instead of being at the survival mode mercy of the liver.  Then, make sure that no more than 5 hours pass during the day without eating.  If you ate like this:

THE WAY TO GOOOOOOOOOOO

lamborghini

Wake up at 6:00AM

 7:00AM breakfast

 10:00 AM snack

 1:30 PM lunch

 4:30 PM snack

 7:00PM dinner

 11:00PM snack

 11:30 bedtime

 

You would have physically consumed 3 meals (all under your control) and 3 snacks (all under your control).

But…If you skipped breakfast and didn’t snack (had lunch and dinner only), you would THINK you ate 2 meals, but you actually consumed 6 meals (4 of which were out of your control from liver self-feeding). And the 45-65 net carb grams you get from the liver 4 times a day….adds up to about 200 grams of carbohydrate you wouldn’t be inclined to eat. (13 servings of carb” is almost a loaf of white bread a day!)

So there you have it.  For the majority of people struggling with overweight and obesity, PCOS, pre diabetes, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol, low Vitamin D levels; the answer is NOT calories in – calories out.  The answer is not worrying about circadian rhythm. The answer to weight loss and overall health and wellness is in understanding the way your body works and living in a way that matches the mechanics of your machine.
