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.

Why Low Carb does not work

Don’t Eat Low Fat

Low-fat diets have officially been dismissed by all research evidence. Healthy fats actually promote weight loss, and some fats are good for the heart; eliminating them from the diet can cause problems.

Low Carb Diets DO NOT WORK

Eating carbohydrates — especially highly processed ones like white bread and white rice — quickly boosts blood sugar, which triggers an outpouring of insulin from the pancreas. The surge of insulin can rapidly drop blood sugar, causing hunger. Low-carb proponents claim that people who eat a lot of carbohydrates take in extra calories and gain weight. Limiting carbs in favor of protein and fat is supposed to prevent the insulin surge and make you feel full longer.

To make up for the lack of carbohydrates in the diet, the body mobilizes its own carbohydrate stores from liver and muscle tissue. In the process, the body also mobilizes water, meaning you are losing “water weight.” The result is rapid weight loss, but after a few months, weight loss tends to slow and reverse.

The American Heart Association cautions people against following the Atkins diet because it is too high in saturated fat and protein, which can be hard on the heart, kidneys, and bones. The lack of carb-rich fruits and vegetables is also no good, because eating these foods tends to lower the risk of stroke, dementia, and certain cancers.

Skinny Coach Diet: Healthy fats, Whole Grain Carbs and lots of Fruit and Veggies

Good fats found in olive oil, coconut oil and meat and fish are good for your brain, hair, skin and will help you lose weight. The carbohydrates in the Skinny Coach Diet come from unrefined, fiber-rich sources like quinoa, rice and beans and it is also rich in fruits and vegetables.
