Here is a picture of the American Food Pyramid on a plate. Notice the huge serving of carbohydrates at the bottom. If you move up from the bottom, you’ll see more carbohydrates in the form of fruits. Then more carbs as vegetables. Then finally we hit some protein and fats. Spending a lifetime of eating as shown in the above picture will cause your pancreas to release insulin. Lots of it! Now, add the occasional ice cream sundae, a couple cookies, mom’s homemade apple pie and we have an insulin catastrophe on our hands and that is exactly what America is dealing with, an insulin catastrophe.
Too much insulin makes you fat. Yep, that’s right. Insulin makes you fat. “How?” do you ask, well, simple. Insulin is the hormone that gets released by your pancreas that helps lower blood sugar. Carbohydrates raise your blood sugar so insulin gets release to bring your blood sugar levels down to normal. Now insulin also causes a chemical reaction to occur called LIPOGENESIS. Lipogenesis is when your body takes all those carbohydrates you’ve eaten over the years and stores them as belly fat. Eventually, from eating too many carbs, the levels of insulin build up in the body and you become a fat storing machine.
“Did You Ever See An Alcoholic Get Drunk Off Two Drinks?”
I have had maybe 10 alcoholic beverages in the last 10 years. Accordingly, if i were to have a drink or two I’d be a little tipsy to say the least, because my body is not used to having alcohol in it. Now, if a person had about 10 alcoholic drinks a day he might not get tipsy at all by having just one or two drinks. His body has built a tolerance to or become resistant to the alcohol. In the same respect, a person who has a lot of insulin in his blood, due to years of carbohydrate consumption, will become tolerant or resistant to insulin. Just like the alcoholic that needs more and more alcohol to get drunk, you will need more and more insulin to lower your blood sugar……….you are now insulin resitant. The high levels of insulin will cause you to store more fat and worse, make it very difficult for you to lose.
There is a well-renown French, MD, PhD who worked closely with the French Olympic Athletes and has developed an easy yet extremely effective system to get rid of body fat. The average women loses 3 to 5 pounds of fat and the average male loses 4 to 7 pounds of fat, all by naturally reducing your insulin levels. It is easy, safe and highly effective.
