It’s official – 1 in 3 Americans will develop diabetes. That is outstanding and disgusting. Just in case the prevalence causes some sort of desensitization let me be clear for you, diabetes takes an average of 15 years off your life, it is also the leading cause of blindness, kidney failure and amputations. Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death and your chances of dying are twice that of someone that does not have diabetes.

It is ALL about the food you eat. Food is broken down into molecular units to be processed by your body. Sugar and carbohydrates are broken doesn’t into glucose, glucose gets in the bloodstream and raises blood sugar. In response, the pancreases releases insulin to help get rid of the sugar. However, we are not eating food, we are eating poisoned food like substances like high fructose corn syrup and genetically modified food products. The result we have too much sugar floating in our bloodstream and our pancreases can not keep up and so you get diabetes.

The absolutely only way to control this is to control the carbohydrates you are eating. I am NOT talking about a low carb diet – far from it. Low carb diets are not healthy, cause brain problems, weigh loss always stalls, lack of nutrients and depression. I am talking about eliminating all refined carbohydrates – meaning sugar and flour and keep your protein intake up. If you do this you can not only lose weight quickly and without suffering, you will keep your insulin and blood sugar in balance which will change everything about your health.

The Skinny Coach diet has been sugar and flour free for 17 years. While the diet gurus where still promoting low fat, I knew no refined foods was the way to go.

Sally just came for her weigh in today and lost 11 pounds and 29 inches and so can you.

Do you have Metabolic Syndrome?

Increased consumption of sugar is linked to higher diabetes rates independent of rates of obesity. In other words, regardless of weight, sugar causes diabetes. In fact, the research controls for everything and meets longstanding criteria for causation. Given these findings, it is proof enough that sugar is poisonous and it is time to regulate by removing fructose from the safe list and setting limits on how much sugar can be added to a food. It is clear that obesity is not the cause of our dramatic increase of chronic disease but instead metabolic syndrome, which is a problem for normal weight people as well. Metabolic syndrome is a result of insulin resistance, which is caused by consumption of added sugar.

If you want to live longer, be healthy, lose weight – get rid of the sugar.

The Skinny Coach diet is a sugar abstinent diet and will make you healthier than you have ever been. Take the quiz and find out if you have metabolic syndrome.
