Enlightened Ice Cream and Bars approved for The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress!

I’m recommending ENLIGHTENED ice cream and ice cream bars for Step 1 of the Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition. If the net carb grams in the ice cream product you choose is 6 grams or less per serving; It is a 5 gram Carb Counter.

You can use the 1/2 cup ice cream or ice cream bar as a 5 gram Counter Carb for meals or bedtime.

I reserve my recommendations for products that go over and above in terms of Nutrition Facts and Ingredients for those who have Metabolism B.

Metabolism B …. there is a good chance you have this genetic predisposition to over-production of the fat gain hormone; insulin. Over 60 percent of adults have uncontrolled Metabolism B. They suffer from progressive weight gain, midline fat, increasing cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, insulin levels, glucose, liver enzymes, and decreasing Vitamin D levels. They feel fatigued, irritable, carb cravings, mild depression, increased anxiety, impaired focus and concentration, lack of motivation. They gain weight on their old “tried and true” diets. Their self-esteem is lowered and they feel like a failure because they can’t lose weight and regain health no matter what they do. They are walking a slippery slope and need fast and long term help.
You can read about Metabolism B at http://www.themetabolismmiracle.com

Just released on May 31, 2016: THE METABOLISM MIRACLE, Revised Edition. NY Times Best seller and World Wide Best Selling Book. This book gives a thorough explanation of Metabolism B and provides the lifestyle program to control it and eliminate all the symptoms listed in the previous paragraph. Links to the book through Amazon.com are below. It can also be purchased at your favorite brick and mortar bookstore, like Barnes and Noble.

ENLIGHTENED ICE CREAM and ICE CREAM BARS!

Ice cream. Yummmmm. It has always been a no no for those who are trying to lose weight/fat, or have conditions such as metabolic syndrome, pre diabetes, type 2 diabetes, PCOS, overweight/obesity, weight-related medical conditions.

Oh, there are several low calorie ice creams, low fat ice creams, “sugar free” ice creams and more. Those with Metabolism B quickly find that these products are contributing to their progressive weight gain and carb cravings. Low calorie, low fat ice cream, and low carb ice creams have significant amounts of carb. In some instances, regular ice cream is healthier to the person with Met B than these diet ice creams.

And along came a miracle! Enlightened ice cream seamlessly matches The Metabolism Miracle program. ½ cup is a 5 gram Counter Carb and can be used as a 5 gram choice at any meal or bedtime! Enlightened ice cream bars also match the Metabolism Miracle program as a 5 gram counter.

Why am I taking time to recommend ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream?
There are very few ice cream/ice cream products that contain 5 grams or less net carb grams. Why is 5 grams or less carb/serving so important? 5 grams net carb or less has a very slight impact on blood glucose and insulin release. It is a magic number. ENLIGHTENED ice cream and bars contain 3 to 6 grams net carb.

Some low carb food manufacturers make low carb claims…. even going so far as to say “5 grams net carb” on the front of their packaging. But; a look at the product’s Nutrition Facts easily shows that making the pronouncement of 5 grams of net carb a LIE.

The formula to determine net carb grams:
Total carbohydrate grams – dietary fiber – grams of erythritol = net carb grams.

Erythritol is the ONLY sugar alcohol that can be subtracted from total carb grams. So, if the sugar alcohol in a food product is any other…mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol, polyols….it CANNOT be subtracted from total carb grams to determine net carb grams. Only erythritol can be subtracted!

For the following Enlightened ice cream bar:
Enlightend bars nutrition facts

1 bar has: Total carb grams: 14 grams
– Dietary fiber grams: 5 grams
– Erythritol grams: 6 grams
Net carb grams per bar: 3 grams net carb! (5 gram counter carb)

These are the net carb grams in ½ cup of this flavor Enlightened ice cream:
Enlightened pints

Total carbohydrate grams: 16 grams
Dietary fiber grams: 5 grams
Erythritol grams: 5 grams
Net carb grams: 6 grams net carb (5 grams counter carb)

And the taste is incredible. I promise that it tastes like real ice cream!


Where to buy Enlightened Ice Cream and Bars?

Find the store locator on: http://www.eatenlightened.com/#/products

So, all followers of The Metabolism Miracle program or anyone watching carb gram intake….try this product. Quality ingredients, great taste, accurate Nutrition Facts based on ingredients, and net carb per ½ cup or per ice cream bar!

Know your TARGET HEART RATE for exercise. Faster heart rate is not better…stay in YOUR range!

walking for exercise 1

Readers of The Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition are well aware that exercise is 1/2 of the program. Without exercising (over and above your normal physical activity) 5 times a week for at least 30 minutes, metabolic rate will drop, calorie and fat burning will plummet, you will begin to burn both MUSCLE and fat instead of fat alone, and you will really change your body shape.

Exercise correctly for The Metabolism Miracle, Revised edition means, higher metabolic rate, faster weight and fat burning, fat burning without losing muscle, and positive improvement in your shape and muscle tone!

Over the years, I’ve found that many people frustrated with very slow or no weight loss begin to exercise over the top….very high intensity, every day, longer than necessary periods of time. YES, YOU CAN OVEREXERCISE…UNNECESSARILY.

If you exercise over your maximum target heart rate, you can strain your heart, increase blood pressure, stress your lungs and respiratory system. You could be exercising and causing physical harm to your body.

I’m not a fan of pumping up the heart rate to the very top or over above your “target heart rate”…especially not starting off from a resting state with high intensity exercise. It is not healthy to raise heart rate over target heart range. It’s even worse to go from resting to high intensity activity that is above your target heart rate for exercise. Working out too hard can be harmful to your health.

It is recommended that you exercise within 55 to 85 percent of your maximum heart rate for at least 30 minutes to get the best results from aerobic exercise. The maximum heart rate is the upper limit of what your cardiovascular system can handle during physical activity.

It’s important to consult your health care provider once you find your exercise target heart range for approval or modification of the rate based on your medical history.

TARGET HEART RATE CALCULATOR: http://www.active.com/fitness/calculators/heartrate

Use the calculator to figure out your personal maximum heart range and do not exceed the maximum. This range is where you want to be when you do cardio/aerobic activity. Aerobic exercise includes exercise walking, swimming, running, dancing, Zumba, bicycling, or aerobics videos.

You can do your own interval training by doing 10 minutes at the lower end of your range, 10 minutes closer to your maximum, and 10 minutes at the medium of your range. (With MD approval). Always end with at least 5 minutes of cool down at a heart rate under your low end of the range.

EXAMPLE: This person’s target heart range for exercise is 95-140.

First 10 minutes: 98 heart rate
Second 10 minutes: 130 heart rate
Last 10 minutes: 120 pulse rate
5 minute cool down….under 90 pulse rate.
When you exercise like this (for 35 minutes), you can FUEL FORWARD before the work out. FUELING FORWARD is for those on Step 1 of The Metabolism Miracle!

All you have to do is look around to realize that people are different. If you’re a pear, you gain weight in the hips and thighs. If you’re an apple, you gain weight around the middle. I know someone (the husband of one of my friends) who first gains weight in his face! The fact is while we can be classified into general categories, we are all really quite different from one another in every way, including our metabolisms.

It should be no surprise to anyone that metabolisms come in different models. Many of you have friends or family members who can eat whatever they want and maintain a healthy weight, while you may have been fighting your weight your entire life.

For example, take my sister and me. No one in the world is as genetically close to me as my sister. Same mother, same father, same height, same eye color, same hair color, and only 15 months apart. That’s about where the similarities stop. I’m a pear; Cindy’s an apple. I’m 58 years old with no signs of diabetes or prediabetes, while at 57 Cindy has been trying to manage her type 2 diabetes for nearly 20 years. So close genetically and yet so different.

I didn’t buy this book for me … I bought it for my sister, but I have been reading it so I can help her. I now know why we are so different … I have Metabolism A; Cindy has Metabolism B. If you have a roll around the middle and gain weight easily, you may have Metabolism B like my sister. If you do, you need to order this book today!

Diane Kress, who struggled with her own Metabolism B, has come up with a three step program which will teach you how to live a life in harmony with your own unique metabolism.

I absolutely NEVER review anything I purchase. I’ll be honest it’s out of sheer laziness. However, this I just had to tell you about. I am 25 years old and nothing was working for me. I was running 20 miles a week, counting calories, and even doing P90x daily but I STILL gained weight. I was so distraught and tired of failing that I went to the doctors to have everything checked out to see if there was some medical reason I couldn’t lose any weight, but of course they told me to exercise MORE!! As I if two hours a day wasn’t enough.

One day I was looking through books on my Nook and I stumbled upon Metabolism Miracle, after reading the introduction I knew I had to give it a shot. I am a carb junky! I grew up on carbs and its what I have always known. I knew it would be the hardest 8 weeks of my life, but nothing else was working so I figured why not! Let me tell you, the first three days I felt like I was a drug addict come off a high. I was shaky, nauseous, had the worst headache in the world and the cravings were terrible. That was when I realized how addicted my body was to complex carbs. I knew on day two this would be the lifestyle choice for me… I am 16 weeks into my new lifestyle and I have lost 25 pounds. I am 5’8 starting weight of 180. I have never felt better in my life. I have energy to workout, my tummy pooch is gone and I NEVER crave complex carbs anymore. Im telling you, if you want to lose weight the healthy way this is it! The first two weeks are the hardest, but after that it’s a piece of cake! Miracle Metabolism has changed my body so drastically that I now have 3 friends and 4 family members following it as well. They have ALL lost tons of weight. Try this, you wont regret it. Give it three weeks of true dedication and if you don’t like the results then I will eat my words!! Thank you Miracle Metabolism!!!!!!!!

This book came in excellent condition and arrived promptly. It was filled with testimonials, and other helpful information to get me started. Unlike other low carb books this one explained how and why to do certain things, the biggest being when and how to incorporate carbs back into your diet. I have been successful at the first phases of other low carb diets but gained the weight back as I tried to introduce carbs back into my life. After reading this book I now realize what I was doing wrong and look forward to getting to the second phase.

I belong to a forum in which women who suffer from PCOS discuss their experiences and who show support for one another. I mention this because it was on this forum that I was recommended this book because almost all women with PCOS suffer from Insulin Resistance and it wreaks havoc on our bodies. I have been on WW and tried other diets to help alleviate some of the symptoms but was never entirely successful. I will acknowledge that I haven’t been on the plan long enough to say that this is a permanent solution, but many of the women I’ve spoken to recommended Diane Kress’s books because they have been able to adjust their lifestyles long term with this plan.

I love the way that the book really explains what’s going on and why in simple terms which makes it easier for people to absorb, I’m a health professional and even I can get overwhelmed with medical lingo sometimes. The recipes that I have made so far have been easy to make, very tasty and I definitely didn’t feel like I was on a hardcore diet. Yes you do have to count carbs, but it’s really not that bad, the first week or two is rough if you’re a carb junkie like I am/was, but it’s well worth it and you get to a point that you physically feel the difference.

I purchased this cookbook with the book The Metabolism Miracle, which really explains in depth what’s going on and lays the ground work. It’s simple approachable and the recipes and meal plans are great. My boyfriend is 100% meat and potatoes kind of man and he had no complaints about anything that I cooked from this book. Although he’s not consciously or deliberately on the plan, he has mentioned that he’s felt the difference also and he’s not even on it fully like I am. I mention this so you know that it’s possible for the other people you are cooking for to benefit from it as well even if they don’t follow it to the T. He did mention that he’s considering trying to follow it to see the full effects of what the plan can do.

Diane Kress recommends Halo Top Creamery Ice Cream! Real low carb, high protein, low calorie ice cream.

halo ice cream picture

As my readers know, I very seldom recommend a brand name product. I reserve my recommendations for products that go over and above in terms of Nutrition Facts and Ingredients for those who have Metabolism B.

Metabolism B …. there is a good chance you have this genetic predisposition to over-production of the fat gain hormone; insulin. Over 60 percent of adults have uncontrolled Metabolism B. They suffer from progressive weight gain, midline fat, increasing cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, insulin levels, glucose, liver enzymes, and decreasing Vitamin D levels. They feel fatigued, irritable, carb cravings, mild depression, increased anxiety, impaired focus and concentration, lack of motivation. They gain weight on their old “tried and true” diets. Their self-esteem is lowered and they feel like a failure because they can’t lose weight and regain health no matter what they do. They are walking a slippery slope and need fast and long term help.

HALO TOP CREAMERY ICE CREAM!

Ice cream. Yummmmm. It has always been a no no for those who are trying to lose weight/fat, or have conditions such as metabolic syndrome, pre diabetes, type 2 diabetes, PCOS, overweight/obesity, weight-related medical conditions.
Oh, there is low calorie ice cream, low fat ice cream, “sugar free” ice cream and more. Those with Metabolism B quickly find that these products are contributing to their progressive weight gain and carb cravings. Low calorie, low fat ice cream, and low carb ice creams have significant amounts of carb. In some instances, regular ice cream is healthier to the person with Met B than these diet ice creams.
And along came a miracle! Halo Top Creamery ice cream seamlessly matches The Metabolism Miracle program. ½ cup is a 5 gram Counter Carb and can be used as a 5 gram choice at any meal or bedtime!
Halo Top Creamery Ice Cream is perfect for your desire for a summer-time ice cream treat AND perfect for those with Metabolism B. (over 170 million people in the US alone!).

Why am I taking time to recommend Halo Creamery Ice Cream?

There are very few ice cream/ice cream products that contain 5 grams or less net carb grams. Why is 5 grams or less carb/serving so important? 5 grams net carb or less has a very slight impact on blood glucose and insulin release. It is a magic number. Halo Top Creamery ice cream contains 4 or 5 grams net carb.
Some low carb food manufacturers make low carb claims…. even going so far as to say “5 grams net carb” on the front of their packaging. But; a look at the product’s Nutrition Facts easily shows that making the pronouncement of 5 grams of net carb a LIE.

The formula to determine net carb grams:

Total carbohydrate grams – dietary fiber – grams of erythritol = net carb grams.

Erythritol is the ONLY sugar alcohol that can be subtracted from total carb grams. So, if the sugar alcohol in a food product is any other…mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol, polyols….it CANNOT be subtracted from total carb grams to determine net carb grams. Only erythritol can be subtracted!

INGREDIENTS FOR HALO TOP ICE CREAM:

Milk and cream, eggs, erythritol, prebiotic fiber, milk protein concentrate, organic cane sugar, vegetable glycerin, organic vanilla extract, organic vanilla beans, sea salt, organic carob gum, organic guar gum, organic stevia.

NUTRITION FACTS FOR HALO TOP ICE CREAM:

halo nutrition facts

The ingredients show that the product is sweetened with ERYTHRITOL, ORGANIC CANE SUGAR, ORGANIC STEVIA.

The Nutrition Facts show:
Total carb grams – dietary fiber – erythritol = net carb grams
14 grams total carb – 5 grams dietary – 5 grams sugar alchohol (erythritol) = 4 grams net carb!
(these 4 grams net carb are from the cane sugar but the amount of net carb grams is 4 grams net carb. It’s 5 grams or under per ½ cup!

And the taste is incredible. I promise that it tastes like real ice cream!

VICTOZA injection touted to lower blood glucose for type 2 diabetics on high insulin doses. DIANE KRESS provides the truth.

victoza paula-deen-hairstyle-5 (Paula Deen was once the spokesperson for Victoza….remember that?)

Victoza is a medication for diabetes that is injected daily. It is NOT INSULIN. Latest press suggests ADDING Victoza (liraglutide) to already high doses of insulin to improve blood sugar.

Victoza is not for those with type 1 diabetes who take insulin.

Why would a person with type 2 diabetes who is already taking high doses of insulin need this potentially dangerous drug? Apparently, they are injecting very high doses of insulin, but the insulin is not “fitting” properly. (Insulin Resistance). I’ll provide the safe solution at the end of this “skull and crossbones” article about Victoza (liraglutide).

Victoza has always had a black box warning linking it to thyroid cancer in rat studies. On June 15, 2011, the FDA issued an official FDA warning regarding pancreatitis as it relates to Victoza.

“Clinical trials have shown more cases of pancreatitis with liraglutide than with other diabetes drugs, so the FDA recommended patient monitoring after starting liraglutide or raising the dosage, for symptoms such as persistent severe abdominal pain. This pain can sometimes radiate to the back and is accompanied by vomiting.
Liraglutide should be immediately stopped if pancreatitis is suspected and not restarted if the disease is confirmed.

“The FDA urged a cautious approach in patients with a history of pancreatitis. The agency also highlighted the contraindication for liraglutide in patients with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer or a personal history of multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2.”

In addition to informing about the FDA Warning, I feel it’s my responsibility to provide information about this BLACK BOX WARNING medication taken directly from Victoza’s own website!

Important Safety Information

In animal studies, Victoza® caused thyroid tumors—including thyroid cancer—in some rats and mice. It is not known whether Victoza® causes thyroid tumors or a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) in people which may be fatal if not detected and treated early. Do not use Victoza® if you or any of your family members have a history of MTC or if you have Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2). While taking Victoza®, tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck, hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. These may be symptoms of thyroid cancer.

Inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) may be severe and lead to death. Before taking Victoza®, tell your doctor if you have had pancreatitis, gallstones, a history of alcoholism, or high blood triglyceride levels since these medical conditions make you more likely to get pancreatitis.

Stop taking Victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have pain in your stomach area that is severe and will not go away, occurs with or without vomiting, or is felt going from your stomach area through to your back. These may be symptoms of pancreatitis.

Before using Victoza®, tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, especially sulfonylurea medicines or insulin, as taking them with Victoza® may affect how each medicine works

Also tell your doctor if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in Victoza®; have severe stomach problems such as slowed emptying of your stomach (gastroparesis) or problems with digesting food; have or have had kidney or liver problems; have any other medical conditions; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is unknown if Victoza® will harm your unborn baby or if Victoza® passes into your breast milk.

Your risk for getting hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, is higher if you take Victoza® with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar, such as a sulfonylurea. The dose of your sulfonylurea medicine may need to be lowered while taking Victoza®.

Victoza® may cause nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea leading to dehydration, which may cause kidney failure. This can happen in people who have never had kidney problems before. Drinking plenty of fluids may reduce your chance of dehydration.
The most common side effects with Victoza® include headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Nausea is most common when first starting Victoza®, but decreases over time in most people. Immune system related reactions, including hives, were more common in people treated with Victoza ®compared to people treated with other diabetes drugs in medical studies.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

This post is not meant to diagnose or treat. I am simply suggesting an alternative to over-medicating your diabetes with a drug that has the potential to cause harm. You and your health care provider make any changes in your medications and health care regimen. .

Those with type 1 diabetes cannot use Victoza.

Those with type 2 diabetes do not need Victoza. Why inject a medication with so many potential serious side effects when you can get wonderful results with one oral medication, insulin, and The Diabetes Miracle or The Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition?

Talk with your MD or health care provider about discontinuing Victoza and adding Metformin to your insulin regimen. No other oral medication will be needed as you are already taking insulin (the big gun in diabetes treatment).

ABOUT METFORMIN

Metformin works to make insulin “fit” better and decreases resistance to insulin. In addition, it decreases excessive glycogen (glucose) release from the liver that is responsible for 50% of your blood glucose readings. Metformin is not a “new medication” …It’s been available for over 50 years and is the #1 prescribed oral medication for diabetes. Your MD will check your lab work to make sure that Metformin is a great medication for you.

A Suggested way to add Metformin to your medication regimen of insulin and Metformin.

Week one: 500mg Metformin with breakfast
Week two: 500mg Metformin with breakfast and dinner
Week three: 500mg Metformin with breakfast and 1000mg with dinner
Week four: 1000mg Metformin with breakfast and 1000mg with dinner

If you are taking insulin, consider asking about taking a long acting insulin at bedtime and a rapid acting insulin before meals and at bedtime. (if needed). Both of these insulin types come in insulin pens. Grab and go!

Long acting insulin (like Lantus or Levimir) is usually taken at bedtime. Your MD or health care provider will work with your long- acting insulin dose until you wake up with normal blood sugar.

In addition to long acting insulin, you would take rapid acting insulin (like Humalog or Novolog) before meals and at bedtime (if needed). The rapid acting insulin will normalize your pre meal blood glucose AND cover any carbohydrate foods you will eat at the meal.

2.TEST YOUR BLOOD GLUCOSE FASTING, PRE LUNCH, PRE DINNER, AND AT BEDTIME Your MD will tell you your goal pre meal and bedtime blood glucoser and how many units of fast acting insulin you should take to normalize high pre meal readings. If you intend to eat carbohydrate foods at the upcoming meal, ask your MD how much rapid acting insulin to add to your “corrective rapid acting insulin” to cover the carbs you will eat. One injection of rapid acting insulin will correct your blood glucose and cover carb grams!
