WOMEN DESERVE ACCURATE AND TIMELY INFORMATION REGARDING THEIR HEALTH and WELLNESS.
Overweight/obesity, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colon cancer, skin cancer, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), infertility issues, hypoglycemia, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, elevated LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, Alzheimer’s disease, Vitamin D deficiency, osteoporosis are at epidemic levels due to faulty guidelines women have been presented with for the past 60 years. Three generations of women have been negatively impacted by following the wrong guidelines for diet, exercise, lifestyle.
This is Part 1 of a 4- part series that is being addressed for the health and wellness of women.
Over 60% of US adult women have become overweight, obese, or even morbidly obese. Gradually, fat accumulation triggers increased blood pressure, increased cholesterol, triglycerides, HbA1C, insulin levels, decreased Vitamin D levels, and excess fat on the body, in the blood, and in the liver.D
As if withholding basic health related information from American women (causing overweight and weight- related medical conditions) is not bad enough….lack of valid information is also contributing to women’s fatigue, decreased focus and concentration, food cravings, mild depression, anxiety, decreased self -esteem, uncontrolled and steady fat gain, decreased libido, and decreased sleep. A person cannot function on all cylinders or rise to full potential if their metabolism is rendered imbalanced by faulty guidelines.
Women everywhere; Please read all 4 parts of this series and give yourself the opportunity to learn extremely important information that has been kept from you. YOU DESERVE TO KNOW THIS INFORMATION and PASS IT ALONG TO GENERATIONS OF WOMEN EVERYWHERE!
A Well- Kept Secret:
Over 60% of adult women are UNKNOWINGLY living in some stage of metabolic syndrome. MOST women are unaware that they have this condition.
A combination of genes plus environmental stressors insures that over 60% of women will eventually experience a gradual increase in body fat (especially around the middle), along with increases in blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, blood glucose, fat deposits in the liver and low Vitamin D levels.
Most women will eventually experience similar symptoms; gradually increasing fatigue, unsuccessful weight loss on low calorie diets that “used to work”, inability to focus and concentrate, cravings for carbohydrate foods, belly fat, muffin top, afternoon energy slump, depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, decreased libido, racing thoughts, early aging of the skin and hair, etc.
What is Metabolic Syndrome?
Metabolic syndrome is a genetically mediated slow and progressive syndrome caused by an imbalance of the fat gain hormone; insulin. It is worsened by “environmental stressors” like high carbohydrate intake, inadequate physical activity, stress, illness, pain, surgery, certain medications (like steroids and beta blockers), and even the normal hormonal changes that occur during puberty, pregnancy, lactation, and menopause.
Metabolism A vs Metabolism B
For clarity, I refer to those women with metabolic syndrome as having “METABOLISM B ”or “MET B”.
In fact, over 60% of women are born with the genes for metabolic syndrome. Presented with “environmental stressors” listed in the previous section, they WILL develop full blown Metabolism B.
Less than 40% of the population (those who don’t have the genes for metabolic syndrome) have what I refer to as “Metabolism A”. Those with “Met A” can lose weight and keep it off following a traditional weight- loss diet; no matter how fat they become, they cannot develop insulin imbalance.
The danger is when women do not know they have metabolic syndrome or uncontrolled Metabolism B.
The following conditions and diseases are directly linked to insulin imbalance, metabolic syndrome, or Metabolism B.
PCOS and infertility issues
pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes
NAFLD (fatty liver not caused by alcohol)
Vitamin D deficiency
breast, ovarian, skin, and colon cancer
depression and/or anxiety disorder
osteoporosis and osteopenia
Every single one of these medical conditions or diseases are linked to insulin imbalance, metabolic syndrome, or uncontrolled Metabolism B. To date, no medical association has chosen to inform American women about the link between excessive insulin and their health. As a result, we are getting fatter and sicker and simply can’t figure out why.
WE DESERVE BETTER
Wouldn’t it be incredible if the trillions of dollars spent for prescriptions written to treat the aforementioned illnesses could be cut in half (or more) by acknowledging and promoting the correct lifestyle changes (diet and exercise) that normalize insulin release, decrease or eliminate insulin resistance, promote hormonal equilibrium, and totally control metabolic syndrome or Metabolism B?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if medical professionals and associations shined a light on and promoted diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes that will enable women to become leaner, healthier, and feeling great?
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if a diet and exercise program was designed to match the metabolism of over 60% of the women who are struggling with health issues related to insulin? Give us the key and we WILL open the door to a healthy future.
Over 60 years of lies and deception
Over three generations harmed by purposely withheld Information
Is the fact that improper diet advice has been dispensed to generations of women predisposing them to becoming overweight, obese, chronically ill, and tied to a myriad of medications”
When metabolic syndrome was recognized, the medical associations needed to stand up, admit the findings, and correct the teaching.
The advice; “Eat less and move more or decrease calories and increase exercise” DOES NOT correct insulin imbalance. A low calorie, low fat diet with exercise might work for 40% of women (those with Metabolism A), but it WILL NOT work for the 60% of women with uncontrolled Metabolism B. Most women are not failing with diet and exercise; improper diet guidelines, exercise, and lifestyle are working against them.
Since over 60% of US women have Metabolism B, women have become fatter and sicker from following incorrect information. Metabolic conditions and obesity are at epidemic levels and the epidemics began over the past 60 years. At this rate, it is predicted that for the first time in decades, children will become fatter and sicker than their parents.
