PRESS RELEASE 02/15/2017…Researchers once again “DISCOVER” that type 2 diabetes is linked to Genes…What’s really new? Check out this press release

Researchers once again “discover” that type 2 diabetes is linked to genes


What’s really new? An anti-obesity/anti-diabetes lifestyle that enables non-medical control of health, weight, wellness and prevents or controls type 2 diabetes. This lifestyle program has been kept from the public for over 50 years!

WASHINGTON – Feb. 15, 2017 – PRLog — For decades, the scientific and medical communities have acknowledged the genetic roots of type 2 diabetes. Since the 1960’s, there has been scientific evidence that those who develop type 2 diabetes have a genetic predisposition to the disease and that the onset of this disease is progressive.

Over fifty years ago, it was proven that genes and environmental stressors contribute to the progression of metabolic syndrome to pre diabetes to type 2 diabetes. These stressors include: consuming a high carbohydrate diet, becoming overweight and over-fat, lack of exercise, normal hormonal changes like puberty and menopause, inflammation, pain, emotional and physical stress, certain medications (steroids, certain anti-depressants).

The following medical conditions also progress as the environmental stressors accumulate: overweight/obesity, hypertension, elevated total and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, elevated glucose, decreased Vitamin D, decreased HDL cholesterol, increased circulating insulin levels.

As the progression toward type 2 diabetes continues, a person’s body becomes “fatter.” Those with the genes for type 2 diabetes and an accumulation of environmental stressors also share a hormonal anomaly. Over time, everyone who eventually develops type 2 diabetes will over- produce the fat gain hormone; insulin.

Excess insulin release (that occurs in response to a rise in blood glucose from the consumption of a high carbohydrate diet during the awake hours and the liver’s normal release of glycogen between meals and during sleep time, builds a “fat body.”

Increased fat stores on the body (belly fat, midline fat, back fat, love handles), in the blood (cholesterol and triglycerides), between abdominal organs (visceral fat), and in the liver (NAFLD). all occur in un-controlled insulin over-production and eventual insulin resistance.

Over 50 years ago, the medical community had a choice. They were responsible to deliver nutrition guidelines to those with heat disease, high blood pressure, overweight, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. The choice was between an anti obesity/anti-diabetes diet protocal or direct focus on low calorie, low fat diet guidelines.

Unfortunately, the medical community decided to focus on decreasing calories and fat in the US diet. A low calorie, low fat diet is a high carbohydrate diet. High carbohdyrate intake causes spikes in blood glucose that trigger insulin release. Since 60% of the adult population has the genetic predisposition to type 2 diabetes and over-release of the fat gain hormone insulin, our nation began it’s downward health spiral to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease.

Look at pictures from the 1950’s and you will see that most people were normal weight. They did not count calories or consume low fat foods. Very few had type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, or were overweight/obese. Fast forward to 2017; our nation now has epidemics of these medical conditions.

The low calorie, low fat diet prompted feverish production of low fat and fat-free products including ice cream, creamer, butter/margarine ,sweets, snacks, salad dressings, mayonnaisse, gravy and more. Supermarkets were and are inundated with “Fat Free” “Low Fat” and “Lite” food products.

As the public tried to adopt a low calorie, low fat lifestyle….they became fatter and sicker.

When a balanced diet was consumed in the 1950’s, medications for weight- related medical conditions were few and far between. Fast forward to 2017 and the majority of adults take at least one medication for hypertension, blood glucose, cholesterol, anxiety/depression.

Am I saying that the truth about a preventive diet/lifestyle was kept from the US public and that inappropriate diet guidelines still exist that fast forward disease progression and epidemics? YES I AM.

Please make available to the public the following series of articles that explain the root cause of their uncontrollable weight and medical conditions. The medical answer is “take this prescription” “let’s add this medication” “follow your diet and exercise.”

Passing along this information will be the first time most your readership will learn the truth and have the tools they need to direct their future health and wellness. They will also have decreased need for weight-related medications and medical procedures.

I am available for public speaking events, interviews, articles. My goal is to spread the truth and empower the people.

TRUTH from Diane Kress continues: These Triggers cause uncontrolled Metabolism B….AND….These triggers DON’T slow metabolism. Read the TRUTH…always…


This article should have mentioned that the “change” in metabolism is the change of normal metabolism to uncontrolled Metabolism B®.
The 8 triggers mentioned in the article are the “environmental stressors” that I’ve explained can add up during life until they trigger the gene for uncontrolled Met B. Metabolism B then causes overweight, obesity, PCOS, pre diabetes, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and is also sited as a cause of breast, skin, ovarian, colon, prostate cancer.

60% of American women who struggle with weight and weight related issues have been fed incorrect and potentially harmful dietary advice regarding weight loss, lowering cholesterol, blood pressure, blood glucose, obesity,controlling metabolic syndrome, controlling and preventing type 2 diabetes, decreasing the risk of PCOS, preventing certain cancers, and postponing or preventing Alzheimer’s disease.

The first 3 parts of this 4 part series revealed information that has been withheld from women since the early 1960’s making it impossible for them to get healthy and lose weight. Step 4 will show you the way.

The terms Met A and Met B are used to differentiate between women who are born with the genetic predisposition to insulin imbalance/insulin resistance and those who will not develop this hormonal imbalance.

The 40% with Metabolism A

40% of US women will process blood glucose generated from eating carbs AND blood glucose generated by the liver’s natural release of glycogen. With Met A, the pancreas releases the correct amount of insulin to match a rise in blood glucose. These women, those with normal metabolism of carbs and liver glycogen, have Metabolism A. If a woman with Met A is overweight and/or has high cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and blood pressure; it is most likely due to overeating calories and saturated fat and without regular exercise.

If they make an effort to lose weight and lower their cholesterol and blood pressure, 40% of the population CAN succeed with any low calorie, low fat diet program.

The 60% with Metabolism B

60% of women do not have normal carbohydrate metabolism. The majority of women who eventually become overweight and over fat were born with the genetic predisposition to develop Metabolism B.

Due to an accumulation of life stressors such as high carb intake, inadequate physical activity, emotional or physical stress, pain, illness, or even certain medications; they eventually begin to over release insulin.

Insulin is a fat gain hormone. Due to the combination of Met B genes plus life stressors, they begin to “over” process blood glucose into excess fat on their body and in their blood (cholesterol and triglycerides and fatty liver).

For those with Metabolism B, the traditional low calorie, low fat diet program (like Weight Watchers™, Jenny Craig™, Nutrisystem™, Medifast™, and even individualized RD planned low calorie, low fat diets) will eventually stop working and then fail to promote long- term weight loss or weight related health benefits.

In fact, those with uncontrolled Met B can actually gain fat on a low calorie, low fat diet regimen. Interestingly, if a person with Met B resorts to weight loss surgery (gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, or gastric banding), there is a good chance they will eventually regain most or all of their lost weight beginning about 2 years after the surgery.

Women with any stage of uncontrolled Metabolism B should consider a diet and lifestyle designed for those with insulin imbalance.

Becoming a Detective



As a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, I specialize in medical nutrition therapy for weight reduction, metabolic syndrome, and obesity, PCOS, pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
For the first half of my 35 year career,I was employed as an RD and CDE in hospitals, medical centers, and diabetes centers, I taught my patients the traditional diets approved by the medical associations.

I have always approached my career in a very unique way. I didn’t want to simply teach a prescribed diet and move on to the next patient without knowing the long term results of the program and my patients’ effort.

Over those early years, I spent extra time collecting and reviewing my patients’ ongoing lab work, comparing changes in weight and body measurements, and noting any additions in types and/or doses of medications prescribed for weight related medical conditions.

It became obvious that the outcomes of the low calorie, low fat diet with exercise were not making a statistical difference with weight loss, blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, Vitamin D, or blood glucose.

In other words, the traditional diet for weight reduction, blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose was really not working… Instead of losing weight and getting healthier, more than half of our patients lost only 8-10 pounds and then regained this weight, their medications were not decreased or eliminated, and they had only minor changes in body measurements (often increasing inches around the middle).

I promise that many RD’s I worked with over 35 years did not believe their patients were following their program. But I was certain that I followed the low calorie, low fat diet…

When I began to gain weight around the middle, developed an elevation in cholesterol, blood pressure, and even blood slucose while following the perfect rendition of the low calorie, low fat diet with exercise…I was SURE there was a problem with the diet

I wasn’t going to fool myself! I could no longer teach a diet protocol that I knew didn’t work for over half the patients who worked with me. I decided to leave the hospital setting and open my own private practice as I was determined to dismantle the traditional diet and rebuild a program that matched the majority of people with Metabolism B.

I asked internists, cardiologists, endocrinologists, and gastroenterologists to consider sending their patients to me; that I was working on a very different type of diet constructed with Metabolism B in mind. They answered by giving their patients a choice…hospital diet instruction or this “new” diet plan built to match insulin imbalance.

Over a period of time, I refined the new program until it became very effective….a diet that truly matched the Met B metabolism was finally complete. Patients’ weight, weight related lab work, and amount and types of medications all showed great improvement.

After years of research, development, refinement….there was finally a solution!

The Solution to a Met B Metabolism:

The new diet program must work to rest the over-reacting pancreas and liver. If I could get the pancreas to stop over-releasing the fat gain hormone, insulin. The pancreas and liver would take a break. During that break, a dieter would burn excess fat stores instead of bulking them up.

There are 3 macro (large) nutrients: carbohydrate, protein, and fat. The only nutrient that turns 100% into blood glucose and triggers an over-release of insulin is carbohydrate.

I knew that I would have to decrease carbohydrate intake as the typical American diet is about 65-70% carbohydrate. Even the traditional diet for diabetes was 55-60% carbohydrate!!!

All available low carbohydrate diets are unnecessarily VERY low in carbohydrate content. Keeping your total carb grams to under 25 grams/day makes it impossible to have good nutrition. A very low carbohydrate regimen also makes the program impossible to follow in the long-term.

I found that the pancreas does not over- release insulin after eating most vegetables. Most veggies are high in water content and fiber. (Corn, peas, beets, potatoes, and legumes are more like starch than veggies and do impact blood glucose) So, I realized that on the new program, most vegetables could be liberally consumed without counting their carbohydrate grams.

Only about 50% of protein converts into blood glucose…but the conversion time is slow and steady. Protein does not really kick the pancreas for quick insulin release. Good news! Lean, heart healthy protein could also be liberal and neutral on the new program.

Only about 10% of fat converts to blood glucose. So, healthy fats like olives, olive oil, other vegetable oils, avocado,, nuts, and seeds would be neutral, too. part 4 yes

Step 1 of the lifestyle program for Metabolism B:





Step 1



Duratione: Eight weeks or more

The Challenge; A lower carbohydrate period (not a typical low carb diet) designed to rest the overworking pancreas and liver while decreasing fat in the blood (cholesterol and triglycerides, liver fat stores) as well as fat on the body (belly fat, muffin top, back fat)

The Results; Lose a specific amount of fat and inches at the end of each 8 week period of time. Within 8 weeks, you will experience marked improvement in weight, body fat, blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin, insulin resistance, Vitamin D, and blood glucose. Energy level soars, focus and concentration improves, and your mood is stable. Cravings for carbohydrates are gone, over-eating is a thing of the past, and for the first time in a long time, you feel in control of your weight, health, and life. I also found that a maximum of 5 grams net carb from blatant carb (like real popcorn, Greek yogurt, whole grain crackers, fruit, etc) can be placed at every meal and bedtime without causing significant insulin release. And, if you are willing to exercise for 40 or minutes at a time (a walk, bike ride, swim, yoga, Tai Chi, run), you can also have a piece of fresh fruit right before the workout!

Step 2



After spending at least eight weeks in Step 1, feel free to move to 8 weeks or more in Step 2. You can remain in Step 2 until you reach your desired weight.

The Duration: 8 weeks or longer, if desired

The Challenge:Re-introduce carbohydrate foods of the right type, in the right amount, at the right time to promote continued fat burning and weight loss while gently restarting the pancreas and liver.

The Results:Steady and predictable fat and inch loss, continued improvement in lab work and decreases in weight- related medications, high energy, no cravings, and normal appetite.

The next obstacle was how to transition a person from being on a reduced carbohydrate Step (Step 1) to eating a controlled amount of carbohydrate (Step 2) without over-stimulating the rested pancreas and liver and causing weight regain.

All other low carb diets fail as soon as the dieter attempts to add carbohydrate back into their intake.

Step 2 is the hallmark of diet for Met Step 2 is the “Missing Link” not built into low carb programs. If carbohydrate is not reintroduced correctly, the pancreas and liver will once again over-react with excess insulin and glycogen release.

It turns out that Step 2 needed 3 separate components: Carbohydrate foods had to be of the right type, in the right amount, at the right time.

Type of carbohydrate:: The first carbohydrate reintroduced needed to be low glycemic index. I chose carbohydrates that had a maximum of about 50 on the GI scale with lots of fiber. So, it’s not that carbohydrate foods can be reintroduced into the diet haphazardly after Step 1; you have to insert the right type of carbs. There must be a gentle reintroduction of carbohydrate foods.

 Amount of carbohydrate:  This part of the program took the longest time to calculate. When the dust settled, I found that 11-20 grams net carb was the appropriate amount of carbohydrate for breakfast, lunch, dinner, bedtime, middle of the night (if awake) and between any meals that exceed 5 hours. The fiber needed to be a minimum of 2 grams per serving. The sugar needed to be 5 grams or less per serving.

I made a list of all the foods that fit this bill. So, pick one of the carbs on the list in the right amount and place them accordingly:

Sample Day on Step 2:</strong

Wake up: 7:00AM
Breakfast: 8:00AM with 11-20 grams net carb and neutrals
Lunch: 12:30-1:00PM with 11-20 grams net carb and neutrals
Snack: neutral foods like cheese stick or almonds
Dinner: 5:30PM with 11-20 grams net carb and neutrals
Night snack: 10:00PM with 11-20 grams net carb and neutrals
Bedtime: 10:45PM Sleep through the night or, if you are awake: 11-20 grams net carb snack

If you are hungry at any time, neutral food choices are fine!

Step 3



This is your “lifetime” Step for weight and health maintenance. Metabolism B is never “cured” as it is part of your genetic makeup. You are eating and exercising in a way that causes your body to react normally to blood glucose and glycogen release.

The duration:
:Lifetime Lifestyle

The Challenge: Increasing choices of carbohydrate in an amount that maintains your desired weight while maintaining normal lab values, weight, and body measurements. Continue a lifetime of energy, focus/concentration, stable moods, normal appetite, and control of weight and health

Results:; A lifetime of desired weight, normal lab values on as little medication as possible. When a person has reached his desired weight, everyone has a different amount of recommended carbohydrate grams/day, spread out to avoid gaps of over 5 hours without eating. The amount of carb grams per day is based on gender, height, desired weight, and activity. If you take a vacation, celebrate the holidays, attend a special event that causes you to go “off program” you can always return to Step 1 for two weeks followed by Step 2 for two weeks and then return to Step 3!

It’s been a pleasure writing this 4 part series to make you aware of the reason you have not been able to lose weight and keep it off. That roll around your middle, back fat, muffin top, and love handles are most likely due to insulin imbalance. Despite what you’ve been told, a low calorie, low fat diet is not going to work for you.

Please remember that it’s not your fault that you seem to be gaining weight no matter what you do, are getting sicker and taking more and more medication for blood pressure, cholesterol, Vitamin D, triglycerides, blood sugar. Chances are that you have uncontrolled Metabolism B and it can be corrected with The Metabolism Miracle.

If you are considering weight loss surgery, please give the program a chance.
You may decide to have the surgery, but if weight regain occurs down the road, you will know what to do to stop the gain as soon as it starts.

I am 100% confident when I recommend the incredible low carb products baked fresh and delivered to your door by The Great Low Carb Bread Company;

As my followers know, I am very careful when recommending products that fit seamlessly into The Metabolism Miracle and The Diabetes Miracle programs. I’m the NY Times Bestselling author of both programs and had been searching for very high quality, delicious, legitimately low carb breads and bread products.

Did you know that many of the low carb breads and bread products you find in your supermarket or health food store are not what they seem to be. Some have paid stiff fines for class action lawsuits but remain on the shelves! When I analyze their ingredient list against their Nutrition Facts, I can immediately tell if their Nutrition Facts are accurate. MANY ARE NOT!
If you are following a low carb program and find yourself with carb cravings or not losing weight….there’s a good chance your “low carb products” are not legitimate and are sabotaging your program.

You can trust GLCBC’s ingredients and Nutrition Facts. Most of their products are NEUTRAL on THE METABOLISM MIRACLE program.

Part 3 of Diane Kress’ 4-part series exposing the diet and health information that has been kept from U.S. women.

part 3

This is PART 3 of my 4 part series on the diet information that has been with-held from US Women. 60% of women cannot lose weight and get healthy on the traditionally recommended diet guidelines of reducing calories and increasing activity. Empower yourself and your friends and family by passing this information along.

This segment provides solid information to help you to determine if YOU are in the 60% of US women who cannot succeed losing weight and keeping it off or reaching and maintaining great health on a traditional diet.

At the end of this series you will understand that you are not a failure, the diet you were told to follow is the failure.

In case you missed the previous 2 parts of the series, start here:



So do YOU have Metabolism B??

-Are you having difficulty losing weight? Despite solid dieting attempts, you can no longer lose weight and keep it off; even your old “tried and true” methods no longer work.

– Do you notice fat accumulating around your middle; belly fat, muffin top, love handles, back fat?

– Are you LOW on energy? Do you feel tired upon arising, need a nap or caffeine during the day, fall asleep watching TV soon after dinner?

– Is your overall body fat percentage increasing?

-Is your blood pressure inching up?

– Have you been told your cholesterol is high?

-Has your doctor mentioned your Vitamin D level is low…take a supplement?

-Do you notice problems with short term memory, focus, and concentration?

-Are you experiencing food cravings and do you find yourself binge eating?

– Do your moods rollercoaster between depression/anxiety? Do you have a short fuse?

-Do you feel low self-esteem or ashamed due to your weight or size?


As Part 1 and Part 2 concluded, less than 40% of women can lose weight and keep it off following a low calorie, low fat diet with increased activity. For under 40% of the population, popular weight loss diets like Weight Watchers™, Jenny Craig™, Nutrisystem, ™ Medifast™, and even individualized weight loss diets planned by RD’s can work. People with normal insulin production (I call this Metabolism A) can succeed on a calories in-calories out approach to dieting.

BUT, over 60% of women will NOT succeed in weight reduction and improvement in weight-related health conditions following the same low calorie, low fat typical weight loss diets. These are the Weight Watchers™ failures, the Jenny Craig™ regains, and Nutrisystem™ yo yo’s. Did these dieters fail at the program? No they did not. The program failed them.

If a woman with insulin imbalance (Metabolism B) attempts to lose weight and get healthy on a diet planned for those with Metabolism A (those with normal insulin response), the Met B dieters will NOT succeed and, in fact, can get fatter and sicker.

Over 60% of the population has the genetic predisposition to insulin imbalance. Their pancreas will gradually over-react to normal rises in blood sugar by releasing excess insulin. And insulin is a fat gain hormone.
Blood glucose normally rises after we eat carbohydrate foods or due to the body’s self -feeding mechanism. When a person exceeds 5 hours without eating, the liver automatically releases stored glucose to maintain our blood sugar so we can stay alive.

When a Met B woman’s liver begins to self- feed, this normal and natural blood sugar rise trips the Met B pancreas to over- release insulin. Even though the person is not eating, his blood sugar will rise and excess insulin release will cause the person to gain excess fat and feel blood sugar lows.

For Met B’s, it appears as if they are darned if they eat and darned if they don’t. They really can gain weight on the same low calorie, low fat diet that allows others to lose weight.

When Met A’s are sick, they lose weight. When Met B’s get sick, they can gain weight. Stress causes those with Met A to lose their appetite. Stress for those with Met B triggers uncontrolled excess eating. Those with Met A can go 4-5 hours without feeling hunger. Those with Met B are lucky to reach 2-3 hours without feeling hungry and “needing” something to eat.

Dieting is a different world for those with Met A vs those with Met B.

Do I have Met B?
There are 3 ways to conclude if you have Metabolism B. Fasting labwork, personal symptoms, and medical history

Fasting Lab Work that confirms Met B:

Make sure to have labs drawn as close as possible to wake up after fasting a minimum of 8 hours. The following are the qualifiers for Met B. They will not match the qualifiers on your lab tests…
Fasting: Met A Met B
Glucose 65-85 Under 65 OR over 85
Hemoglobin A1C 5.2- 5.6 Under 5.2 OR over 5.6
Insulin level 7.0 or under Over 7.0
Vitamin D Over 40 Under 40
Total cholesterol 200 Over 200 without medication
LDL cholesterol Under 100 Over 100 without medication
Triglycerides Under 100 Over 100
TSH .45 -4.0 Under .45 or over 4.0

The Symptoms of Met B

Frequent fatigue
Late afternoon energy slump
Mild depression
Mild anxiety
Occasional Panic Attacks
Cravings for carbs (chocolate, chips, bread, pasta, ice cream, etc)
Not feeling full for any length of time
Old tried and true diets no longer work
Midsection fat deposits (muffin top, belly fat, back fat, love handles)
Difficulty losing weight and then keeping it off
Poor short term memory
Problems with focus and concentration
Racing thoughts or brain fog
Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
Decreased libido
Caffeine has less of an impact than it used to
Alcohol has more of an impact than it used to
Intermittent blurry vision
Difficulty with night driving and increased light sensitivity

Family or Personal Medical history of those with Met B

High blood lipids like cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides
Alzheimer’s disease
Anxiety disorder or panic attacks
Cancer (breast, colon, skin, prostate, uterine, testicular, pancreatic)
Diabetes (hypoglycemia, pre diabetes, gestational diabetes, type 2 diabetes)
Sleep apnea
Heart attack
Erectile dysfunction
Autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis)

Will you have all the lab work, symptoms, or medical history of a person with Met B? No. Remember that Met B is a progressive condition. You might start off with normal labs and no real symptoms but as your life progresses, environmental stressors occur and your genetic predisposition causes these changes to occur.
Stay tuned for the conclusion of this 4 part series: What kind of diet and lifestyle do I need now that I know I have Met B?

Women Unite! We Can Finally Take Control of our Health, Weight, Wellness after Years of Intentionally Suppressed Information.


Learn the Information the U.S. Government and U.S. Medical Assoications have suppressed since the early 1960’s. Spread the Word and Empower Women…Women can Finally Impact Their Health, Weight, and Wellness.

Part 1 of the 4 part series can be read at:


This is Part 2 of a 4 part series: “Has the Government Suppressed Life Saving/Life Changing Information from Women?”

When a female is born with the genetic predisposition to Metabolism B and during the course of her life has experienced life stressors such as; emotional and physical stress, illness, chronic pain, overeating carbohydrate foods, under exercising, certain medications (steroids, beta blockers) or the normal hormonal changes of puberty, pregnancy, lactation, menopause….the diet and lifestyle that has been advocated by the medical associations since the early 1960’s are set up to work against her weight, health, wellness.

It is vitally important to a woman’s weight, health, energy level, and wellness to determine whether she has Metabolism B. If she is among the 60% of women who have insulin imbalance, resistance, metabolic syndrome…it is imperative for her to learn the healthful way to eat and live in concert with her metabolism.

In Part 1, it was revealed that over 60% of women who struggle with weight loss and have weight- related health issues cannot succeed in losing weight and getting healthy on a traditional low calorie diet.

This 4 part series will finally give women the information they need to lose weight and reach and maintain their best health.

YOU can GAIN Weight and ADD FAT on a Low Calorie Diet

The truth is, over 60% of women are born with the genes for developing metabolic syndrome (Metabolism B). For millions of women; skipping breakfast, fasting, not having a bedtime snack, and having gaps of more than 5 hours without eating will actually gain weight and fat.

Women with uncontrolled Met B cannot succeed losing weight by decreasing calories and increasing activity. This is why well -known weight loss programs like Weight Watchers™, Jenny Craig™, Nutrisystem™, Medifast™ and even RD individualized low- calorie programs fail to work in the long term as any weight lost is quickly regained in the majority of dieters.

It’s interesting to watch the progress of Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers paid celebrities who lose weight and regain all of it after a short period of time. If these programs really worked, why do most women regain everything they lost in short order? The answer is: women are unsuccessful because the majority of women CANNOT lose weight/fat and keep it off on calorie/fat based diets. These diets work AGAINST their metabolism.

“Taking Fewer Calories in While Exercising More Calories Off” can only work for those women with with Metabolism A

The “calories in-calories out” concept applies to less than 40% of women. When Met A women decrease calories and increase activity, they initially lose weight. If they decrease their fat intake, they can reduce their cholesterol. No matter how much carbohydrate they consume, they will NOT develop type 2 diabetes. Something as simple as eliminating regular soda and night snacking is all that is needed for a Met A woman to lose weight.

Metabolism A is NOT the Norm

Be assured: Metabolism A is not the norm. Most women with weight issues have the alternate metabolism (Metabolism B). Met B is progressive and rooted in increasing levels of the fat gain hormone; insulin.

Those with Metabolism A do not have a problem with insulin imbalance. When they eat carbohydrate foods, their blood glucose rises, the pancreas releases the right amount of insulin, and carbohydrates are processed normally. If they over eat calorically, they gain weight; as the “calories in-calories out” applies to them. If they cut their calorie intake back, they will lose weight.

Met B Women Can Gain Weight on a Low Calorie Diet

Women with Metabolism B are born with the genetic predisposition to over-release insulin when their blood glucose rises. In short, they “over” process blood glucose resulting in a growing amount of fat on their body, in their blood (cholesterol and triglycerides), and even in their liver.

If women with Metabolism B follow a low calorie diet (lower in fat and calories and naturally higher in carbohydrate) they will gain fat, increase cholesterol/triglycerides, increase blood pressure, decrease Vitamin D, and experience fatigue, listlessness, irritability, and crave more carbohydrate foods. Over time, their medication needs will increase and they will gradually develop more health conditions. High insulin levels are not normal and they are the root of many health conditions and illnesses

(For medical conditions linked to uncontrolled Met B, see Part 1 of this series:

The Story of the Bagel Bomb

The best way to understand the very different processing of carbohydrate foods can be seen in the very different way women with Met A and Met B process a bagel (I could have chosen sweets, fruit, pizza, brown/white pasta or rice, or any carbohydrate food)

Women with Metabolism A and the Bagel

1. A woman with Met A eats a bagel
2. The bagel converts to blood glucose
3. Blood glucose rises
4. The pancreas releases the correct amount of insulin to open the correct number of muscle, liver, and fat cells enabling glucose from the bagel to leave the blood stream and enter these cells. First, muscle and liver cells are refilled with glucose (to be stored as glycogen), and any remaining glucose from the bagel is ushered into fat cells for storage.
5. The blood glucose of the Metabolism A woman returns to normal
6. Four to five hours later, the Met A woman begins to feel hungry…all is normal the body of the person with Met A .

Women with Metabolism B and the Bagel BOMB

1. A woman with Metabolism B eats a bagel

2. The bagel converts to blood glucose

3. Blood glucose rises

4. The pancreas overreacts and releases excess insulin. After the liver and muscles are re-filled with glucose (glycogen), excess insulin opens excess fat cells.

5. When excess blood glucose enters an excess number of fat cells, an excess number of fat cells are filled with circulating glucose. This leaves glucose in the blood LOWER than normal.

6. In short order…usually about 1-2 hours after eating the bagel, the woman with Metabolism B experiences lower than normal blood sugar , strong carbohydrate cravings, irritability, fatigue, brain fog…and begins searching for more carbohydrate foods.

7. If she chooses to eat something (let’s say; an apple), blood glucose rises and the woman temporarily feels better. But…just like with the original bagel, excess insulin opens excess fat cells causing the woman to get “fatter” on the body and in the blood. Blood sugar drops again and 1-2 hours after the apple, she is once again looking for carbohydrate foods.

8. To the casual observer (like a person with Metabolism A ), it appears that this woman has no will- power, is “always feeding her face”, can’t control herself, is always tired, lazy, unmotivated, crabby, and getting fat around the middle.

The truth is, the woman with Metabolism B is in metabolic turmoil. Gradually, over a period of time, the health issues listed in Part 1 begin to progress.

So, what happens when a person with Met B follows a low calorie diet?

Mia (who unknowingly has Met B) is prescribed a 1400 calorie, low fat diet, or “WW™, or Jenny Craig™. She dutifully chooses egg whites, a whole grain English Muffin (dry), and a cup of assorted fresh fruit (fresh melon, blueberries, and other healthy, high antioxidant containing fruit). This is a cholesterol free, fat free, low calorie breakfast.

But Mia unknowingly has Metabolism B!

The carbohydrates (whole grain English muffin and fruit) will turn to blood glucose
The pancreas will over release the fat gain hormone insulin
Excess insulin will over-open fat cells
Excess blood glucose will enter fat cells
Circulating blood sugar drops lower than normal
About 1-2 hours later, Mia is famished as she is dealing with lower than normal blood glucose.
If she chooses not to eat (after-all, she’s counting calories)…her liver will step up to the plate and release glycogen stores.
Blood sugar will rise from the liver release
Excess fat cells are opened and fed
Mia gets fatter
Her low blood glucose causes more hunger
She ignores her hunger (counting calories)
The liver releases again….and…. you get the picture.
As soon as she eats her cup of lentil soup for lunch (fat free and on her diet)…..the carb changes to blood sugar and her pancreas once again over releases insulin..
Mia is damned if she does and damned if she doesn’t eat.
If she doesn’t eat, her liver will self- feed by releasing glycogen to increase blood glucose
If she eats carbohydrate, her blood glucose will rise from the food.
When these patients report they are following their “diet” and their coach, MD, dietitian doesn’t believe them because their weight isn’t moving…think again.

The Low Calorie Diet is Failing the Dieter

Stay tuned for Part 3, for some truthful answers to these very important questions:
1. How do I know if I have Met B?
2. Will I ever be able to lose weight and keep it off?
3. Am I doomed to develop diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and low Vitamin D?
4. Can I live a normal life, eat normal foods, and enjoy a healthy life?
5. How can I prevent type 2 diabetes, overweight/obesity, and help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, certain cancers (breast, ovaries, skin, colon).
