Understanding the Facts can help ensure that chronic disease isn’t part of your life any longer!
Most people believe they are healthier than they really are.
Don’t be fooled, find out your risks and if you are trending towards or away from health. Know the facts about your level of health and what will happen if you continue to do what you are doing.
Don’t Automatically think you don’t have a chronic disease because you’re not laying in a hospital bed.
For Example, You Have a Chronic Disease IF:
It is a FACT
If you eat the same food that the average American consumes, you are assured that you will suffer from the same chronic diseases that plague the average person, so… EAT DIFFERENTLY. Eat the WiO Way!
Over 75% of all deaths are caused by chronic disease.
If you have a chronic disease it can be avoided or reversed… if you know how. WiO can help.
Eating Differently Is The Answer… But Eat What?
If you are looking for a single villain to take the blame for chronic disease it would be INSULIN, too much insulin.
The classic tale of a love-hate relationship. Without any insulin you cannot survive. And yet, if you get too much insulin, for too long, you will start getting one chronic disease after another.
Health issues such as obesity, high blood pressure and cholesterol, even diabetes, arthritis and heart disease can be expected.
You can overcome a chronic disease—if you reverse it before it’s too late.
Eating foods that produce lower insulin levels in your body can help decrease your risk of heart disease and other chronic issues. WiO can make sure that you’re getting the right foods.
Lower Your Insulin Levels!
Here are the FACTS on the most common health issues facing all of us.
IS THIS YOU?
- Almost 80% of Americans are overweight and 34% are obese. It only takes 30 pounds over your ideal weight to be medically obese.
- Obesity leads to many other health risks such as: high blood pressure and cholesterol, fatty liver, insulin resistance, being less fertile, even damaging your lungs and getting asthma.
- Being obese can cost you up to $7,441 more each year.
- Obesity can increase type II diabetes by an incredible 930%; your odds of dying from coronary heart disease goes up 62%, as does getting a stroke by 64%.
- A third of all joint replacement surgery is from being obese and the risk of Alzheimer’s jumps by 42%.
- Healthcare may cost you 81% more than what a thin person will spend.
- Going to the ER will happen 41% more often.
- Likelihood of taking medications is twice as high.
- A diet that increases your insulin increases your chances of dying from elevated blood pressure by 15%. Over 348,000 people died from it last year, don’t be one of them this year.
- 69% of heart attack victims had high blood pressure
- 77% of strokes are caused by high blood pressure.
- Hypertension medication has been shown to increase your risks of actually getting high cholesterol by 69%.
- Blood pressure medications increase people being admitted to the hospital for depression by 20%, and increase our chances of obesity by 58%.
- Blood pressure medication is expensive, it will cost you up to $990 a year.
Hyper-insulin prevention is better than taking medications. Lower your blood pressure by lowering your insulin levels.
- High Cholesterol will cost you $685 a year. And it has some nasty side-effects.
- Taking medications to treat high cholesterol is linked to both kidney and liver failure and high CPK enzyme levels, which involves your brain, heart, central nervous system, and can overload your kidneys and eat away muscle tissue. Maintaining muscle is vital to your good health.
- High cholesterol has been shown to increase the chances of getting both high blood pressure and type II diabetes by 46%.
Avoid insulin resistance at all costs. Having elevated cholesterol bumps your likelihood of being insulin resistant by 24% and that’s just the short list.
Many are fooled in thinking that type II is the safer type of diabetes. By 2030 44% of the population will have type II. If you’re over 50 by then, your chances jumped to 51% of having diabetes. Far too many are prediabetic, bolting to 26% of the population. But studies show less than 1 in 10 even know that they are pre-diabetic.
Not reversing pre-diabetes will result in you contracting full-blown diabetes within 5 years. US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health Popul Health Manag. 2017 Feb 1; 20(1): 6–12. Published online 2017 Feb 1. doi: 10.1089/pop.2015.0181 PMCID: PMC5278808 Diabetes 2030: Insights from Yesterday, Today, and Future Trends William R. Rowley, MD, 1 Clement Bezold, PhD,1 Yasemin Arikan, BA,1 Erin Byrne, MPH,2and Shannon Krohe, MPH3.
With heart disease being the leading killer in the world, 68% of diabetic deaths are directly linked to heart disease. If you’re 65 or older your risks of dying from diabetes explodes by 40%. Even your kidneys are damaged by diabetes. 40% of all kidney disease is caused by it.
Because diabetes affects your blood flow of vital nutrients, almost 70% of all amputations come from diabetes. It even affects our young. 74% of children that go to the hospital are diagnosed with type II diabetes. We are all fearful of contracting Alzheimer’s. Having diabetes increases your chances of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s by 65%.
Being diabetic is expensive, costing over $1,270 a year and will balloon to almost $1,800 in the next decade. Type II Diabetes is definitely the plague of the century and one that is affecting our entire planet, and is caused by one thing: too much insulin for too long. Following a WiO Eating Lifestyle will help eliminate you suffering from diabetes.
You don’t know much about Fatty liver disease yet but trust the studies, you need to, it’s important. Up to 32% of the general population have it, and 75% of those that are overweight can count on having it too. And if you’re unlucky enough to have diabetes 74% of you will also have a fatty liver. If your liver is fat, 30% will have liver damage and if left untreated 25% the damage will progress to cirrhosis of the liver. All this comes with a price tag of $1,613 a year.
Higher insulin levels for too long will result in you becoming insulin resistant. Just like nearly 50% of other Americans are. Once your cells are resistant to the effects of insulin because they are resistant, your blood sugar will rise and stay there. That’s when you have type II diabetes. Continue down this high insulin producing diet and your blood pressure and cholesterol will rise. Fat around your liver and other organs will develop, weight gain, stiff joint, arthritis digestive, Alzheimer’s and over 20 other health risks can develop.
- Having your body’s cells resistant to insulin is more of a dimmer switch instead of an off or on switch. Truth is, it starts with just a few localized cells that ignore this powerful hormone. If left unchecked over years of hyper insulin production, a majority or your cells will be resistant to insulin.
- Insulin resistance is usually the first chronic disease to affect you, because if you have any of the chronic issues mentioned above, you had insulin resistance first. This risk has always been there but checking for it wasn’t a common blood test that your doctor ordered. Do yourself a favor and ask your doctor for a “2-Hour Insulin Glucose Challenge Test.” This glucose tolerance test can help detect your high insulin levels. Over 50% Americans have insulin resistance, and yet 90% of people who have this condition are left undiagnosed.
- Because Insulin resistance is partnered with most chronic issues and definitely with those we’ve listed, it can be the costliest of all. Sucking $1,146 a month out of your budget if you have all the other related issues, which sadly, millions do.
Why Not Stop It Before You Get It?
The CDC estimates that over 1,550,000 people die each year from these metabolic conditions, directly or indirectly. That’s 3 people every minute. There is no other disease that claims more lives and none that is as easily preventable if you treat it properly. In other words you don’t have to have the symptoms if you don’t want them. Thousands of clinical studies support that not only are the conditions you’re facing preventable, but thankfully reversible. That’s why WiO was created… for YOU!
It is Unavoidable… Or Is It?
The changes in healthcare are affecting every business, patient, employer and employees. That includes each of us.
If the trends continue in the current direction, the cost of being sick is going to cause many of us to go broke.
Today, 17 cents of every dollar goes towards healthcare. By 2030 it will climb to over 33 cents. That’s over $44,000 a year for every person in the U.S., could you afford 33% of your paycheck going towards being sick? You can’t afford to get sick.
Invest in YOU today. Put WiO in your budget!
Invest in your health now, by avoiding these costly health risks. Eating healthy can cost as little as $5.00 a meal.
In a recent GALLUP poll, Americans spend $151 on food per week. For most of us, that investment in food isn’t giving us a good return on our health.
A more recent statistic says, “According to the USDA the average family of four is spending somewhere between $544 to $1235 per month for food eaten at home.” That’s $136–$308 per week!
What Do You Spend?
Are the foods you’re buying making you healthier or moving you closer to a chronic health issue?
Your Best Health Insurance
The infographics above show the high cost of managing Metabolic Syndrome and Chronic Disease.
Practicing preventive care is simply eating a diet that keeps your insulin low. Each month you pay for auto insurance, it makes good financial sense. The odds are 1 in 645 that you will get in an auto accident once in your lifetime, that’s a one tenth of 1 percent chance.
Eating a Westernized diet or the American diet, your odds are greater than 8 out of 10 that you will get at least one of the symptoms we have been talking about. That’s over 80% odds! Practicing preventive care is more than watching what you eat. It is controlling your insulin levels at all costs, regardless of what you eat.
Your Healthy Solution
The WiO Eating Plan is a Meal Replacement program not a restriction diet. All you do is switch out your current high insulin meal with a low insulin meal that can cost as little as $5.00 a day. Everyone can afford to swap a $10 – $15 or $30 high insulin meal for a $5.00 delicious healthy meal.
Invest a little today and save a lot later. Our Eating Lifestyle is designed for those that are busy, yet demand delicious and nutrient dense foods.
FACT: FPC Ratio = Better Health.
Limit your carbs and increase the quality of fats in your diet.
FACT: This is the ratio of most Americans. This kind of diet isn’t making us healthy.
Studies are in and they tell us that most people get their calories from this type of unhealthy ratio. At least 51% of their calories come from carbohydrate and studies are proving that, that’s too much.
FACT: An Unhealthy Ratio can lead to Chronic Disease.
Bright Side & Dark Side
FACT: Drugs Can Save Lives.
It is estimated that 1 life is saved each second through the power of medication. It’s hard to argue that the advent and creation of drugs in the modern era is a massive life saving tool.
Medication is a popular style of treatment and is a popular treatment for most all chronic disease… but does it work as a cure?
Sadly, NO, it’s just a treatment of the symptoms. Drugs were never intended to replace the need for food—eaten in this healthy ratio. These medications will never cure the disease because it simply treats the symptom and not the cause.
Your Health Goal: Stop taking medications as soon as you can.*
The Journal of the American Medical Association recent analysis estimates 128,000 Americans die each year as a result of taking medications as prescribed by their doctor. Your odds of dying from medication is 1 in 2,555 each year you continue to take them. Even though medication is a modern miracle, taking them comes with risks.
BEFORE YOU TAKE MEDICATION
Medical experts’ advice: make changes in your diet, lifestyle and exercise before choosing to take medications if it is an option.
*Only alter your medications under the direction of your prescribing physician. Always seek the guidance of your doctor or other qualified health professional with any questions you may have regarding your health, medical condition or medication. Never disregard the advice of a medical professional or change your medication prescription without consulting your doctor.

Metformin may interfere with these Drugs:
Anticholinergic drugs, such as dicyclomine and oxybutynin, may raise the amount of metformin your body absorbs. This may lead to low blood sugar.
These drugs lower your blood sugar by helping your pancreas make more insulin.
Glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase PresTab, Micronase)
They help your pancreas make more insulin. Although these drugs work faster, they don’t last as long in the body.

Medication is Like Taking A Cold Shower To Treat An Infection
Symptoms are red flags that your body is waving, telling you that it needs your attention. If you do nothing, things are just going to get worse. It is common to take medications like insulin for example, to lower glucose levels, beta blockers for blood pressure and statins for cholesterol.
All medications have side effects, you need to ask yourself if this is the smartest, safest and most effective way. Do you want to treat your symptoms or eliminate them?
