Almost 90% of people suffer from Type 2 Diabetes. The saying goes….. You are what you eat! Have you ever really sat down to think about the meaning of those words?
“Poor carbohydrate metabolism is a common primary problem that impairs many aspects of health and fitness”. – Dr. Phil Maffetone
Carbohydrate intolerance is an impairment of the metabolism resulting from excessive consumption of refined carbohydrate foods, such as sugary foods, pastas,and breads that can cause the body to become unable to properly process carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates, more than other foods, stimulate the release of the hormone insulin, and insulin is the body’s main fat-storing hormone. This means that to lose excess body fat you should reduce insulin levels. If you don’t, this can lead to fatigue, weight gain and hormone imbalance. It can also impair muscle function and reduce endurance.
Over time, abnormal cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar raise the risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer, Type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s and other chronic illness. We will help you get on track to eat a healthy low-carb diet consisting of real foods including protein, natural fats and vegetables.
