Why Do Sugars and Carbs Make Me Gain Weight?
Diet Doc Weight Loss Program wants to discuss your diet, it is important to put things into perspective. You are a human being. Your ancestors have evolved over hundreds of thousands of years and you are the product of evolutionary pressures that have always existed and continue to exist today. Diet Doc reports, one of the reasons your ancestors survived so that you could be here is that they ate a simple, nutritious, and balanced diet that allowed them to thrive and procreate. Since the industrial and agricultural revolutions, crops have been mass-produced, harvested, processed, and distributed within the United States and around the world. This lead to a substantial increase in the amount of grains (and grain products) and sugar in the diets of those who lived in accordance with a "western" lifestyle.
The body perceives sugars, carbohydrates, and fats as different forms of energy. Because the "western" diet is high in carbohydrates and sugar, the body quickly burns what it needs (raising and then lowering your blood sugar) and stores the rest for later use. Diet Doc Medical Director, Dr. Shelton reports.from my clinical experience I can honestly say, excess sugars and carbohydrates contribute much more to weight gain than dietary fats. The body has no problem taking excess dietary sugars and carbohydrates and storing them as fat. Sugars also place a great burden on your pancreas, which has to produce insulin every time you ingest sugars. The body does this in an effort to lower your blood sugar levels by driving the blood sugar (glucose) out of your bloodstream and into your cells with the insulin.
Diet Doc asks.how do you stop this insidious cycle? By cutting sodas, fruit juices, candy, and excess carbohydrates (bread, crackers, noodles, rice, bagels, cereals, pasta, muffins) out of your diet and reducing your portions when you do eat. If you currently have Type 2 diabetes these foods are no good for you and will greatly increase the likelihood of amputation, blindness, and kidney failure by hastening the disease process. Studies have shown that mice fed 30% less food, lived about 30% longer than mice that were over fed.
Increasing the amount of good fats in your diet will help prevent the dip in your blood sugar that usually leads to hunger pangs and carbohydrate cravings. Sources of good fats include real butter, eggs, nuts (almonds, walnuts, hazel nuts, etc), cold water fish, tahini (sesame seed paste), coconut, avocados, and olives.
Diet Doc Medical Director, Dr. Shelton reports..Dr Bernard Jensen once said, "If you don't spend money on good food now, you will spend it on the doctor later." He is correct. Food is medicine. If we eat poorly, we cannot expect to maintain our health.
*These weight reduction treatments include oral hCG or an injection of hCGa drug, which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that hCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets. Results may vary and cannot be guaranteed. Medical supervision and compliance with our program is required.
