the myths you’ve been fed about diets
- You’re overweight because you eat too much.
Eating too much can be a factor in becoming over-weight and having Metabolic Syndrome (MSx). However, people who are over-weight usually do not over-eat in the total volume of food they consume. In fact, many over-weight people eat just one big meal a day. They can, however, overeat too much of a macronutrient food source such as complex and simple carbohydrates (e.g., breads, pastas, soda, candy and fruits; eat>250g of carbs daily).
- Your High Blood Pressure is because it runs in the family.
Earlier research thought that a renal or endocrine disorder was the cause of high blood pressure. Recent research has determined that the primary cause of high blood pressure is Metabolic Syndrome (MSx) and too much insulin production, which can cause a thickening and inelasticity of arterial walls and hypertrophy of the left heart ventricle. Additionally, there may be an increase of blood volume due to water retention of the kidneys because of the increased output of insulin from the pancreas. Both disorders can increase the risks of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, end-stage renal disease, or retinal hemorrhage.
- Because your parents and grandparents had High Cholesterol means you will.
Your body actually makes most of the lipids (cholesterol) in your body. Not all cholesterols are bad, in fact your cells structural integrity is made from cholesterol. But the wrong amounts may be unhealthy. The most important types of lipids to watch your HDL (good type) ratio, which needs to be below 4.0. And your triglyceride levels (<150).
A high triglyceride level combined with low HDL or high LDL is associated with several health risks one being diabetes. A high carbohydrate diet will increase the amount of insulin in the body which signal your cells to make more cholesterol, more than you need to be healthy. That’s one reason why you want your trigs to be lower.
- You can’t stop Diabetes from ever being part of your life.
the truth>Research is showing that Type II Diabetes may be reversible through treatment and dietary management, which will reduce insulin production and help prevent insulin resistance. Extended consumption of a high carbohydrate diet will increase insulin production and may result in a disease called Hyperinsulinemia, fatty liver, insulin resistance, elevated cholesterol and blood pressure levels, and weight gain.
- Fatty Liver only happens to alcoholics.
Trying to lose weight with a fatty liver can be nearly impossible. Clinical studies confirm that a fatty liver can be corrected in as little as 12 weeks. High levels of insulin are a major contributing factor to fatty liver. Too many carbohydrate rich foods in your diet will elevate insulin levels and over stress your pancreas, which can lead to a fatty liver.
