Eliminating Bad Sugar from the Diet to Balance Your Blood Glucose Levels: Diabetes Type-II

To balance your blood sugar, one of the first things to do is to eliminate the number one food offender from the diet: SUGAR and things that turn into sugar quickly, namely WHEAT and gluten products!

Here is a few simple starter steps that can be taken:

1. Eliminate all sugar and sugar drinks!

Avoid all sodas, powdered drinks, sports drinks and fruit juices ... and drink plenty of clean ionized water instead. All these drinks contain sugar, so replace them with the correct ionized water tinged with citrus juices (lemon or orange) or essential oils like cinnamon, tangerine or peppermint, to give the taste a kick, which still satisfies. You can also substitute Chinese green teas or herbal teas (that are caffeine free)  for sugar drinks.

2. Limit sugar foods to three times per week then to zero;

What doctors fail to understand is that even though you’re diagnosed as diabetic by a fasting blood sugar test, blood sugar is NOT the problem. It’s merely a symptom that arises as your body attempts to keep itself in balance.

The real, underlying problem is insulin resistance, along with faulty leptin signaling. This is caused by miscommunication within and between cells -- usually related to the communication between the cellular receptors for insulin and leptin. This can be improved with added cell communication Rejuvenis Polyionic Cell Communicator powder.

Insulin lowers your blood sugar as a side effect of directing the extra energy into storage.

NOTE: This is why drugs that concentrate merely on lowering blood sugar for diabetes while raising insulin levels can actually worsen rather than remedy the actual problem of this metabolic miscommunication.

Taking insulin is one of the WORST things you can do, as it will actually make your insulin and leptin resistance worse over time. Most doctors make diabetes worse and accelerate the death process. If you only implement drug strategies to treat your blood sugar level, you are destined for premature death. If it is your desire to stop drugs;" never quit anything cold turkey", watch you meter as you implement a new lifestyle, it will tell you if you are in need of anything.

When your blood sugar becomes elevated it is a signal for insulin to be released to direct the extra energy into storage. A small amount is stored as a starch called glycogen in your body, but the majority is stored as your main energy supply -- fat, mainly around the middle and thighs. In this regard insulin's major role is not to lower sugar, but to take the extra energy and store it for future times of need, which of course will never come without a lifestyle change. So without a good exercise program and complete awareness of what you are eating, write it down and eliminate if it causes your sugar to rise because ifyou eat it, you will be faced with an up-hill battle. Exercise, Exercise, Exercise is the key to the body taking back control of you insulin balancing mechanisms; never stop walking in the early morning sunlight.

Exercise is an absolutely essential factor, without which you’re highly unlikely to get this devastating disease under control. It is clearly one of the most potent ways to lower your insulin and leptin resistance. You must start at your own level of endurance and gradually build up to the 2-hours per day that is absolutely essential in getting your body capable of resuming the process of balancing your insulin. You’ll need to get to this amount of exercise so you can get your blood sugar levels under control.

“Don’t’  Try to not eat sweets on a daily basis”, "do"" not" eat them on a daily basis, but do allow yourself the luxury of an indulgence now and then, as you wean off of them. Otherwise, by just quitting cold-turkey you're likely to "fall off the wagon" and binge by consuming sugary foods even more often than you were in the beginning. So instead of  trying to wean yourself off of sugary foods, DO IT by paying close attention to the foods you put in your body through food journaling. Utilize a lot of Mother Nature's Food, cut up veggies.  Now there are several meanings for journaling, but I prefer this one:  Journaling (writing down on paper)  provides the reality of our weaknesses enabling us to change.

3. Make a habit of eating at least three good meals per day and snacking between meals with fruit that does not boost your insulin levels, which your meter will tell or assorted cut up veggies; cut earlier and placed in a large container with a snap on lid and preserved in Lemon juice so you can easily access the great alternative throughout the day, quickly.

One of the best ways to overcome cravings for sweets is to eat balanced meals at regular intervals throughout the day and never allowing yourself to feel hunger sensations, by eating between meals the fruit, (that does not affect your blood sugar) or veggies. Remember that a balanced meal has a certain "composition": start with a protein (anything from a fish or an animal), this will allow the protease enzyme to be produced first, then include a natural source of complex carbohydrates (green veggies and legumes),  and, don't forget to include some good fats (coconut, oil, palm oil, and extra virgin olive oil, as well as KRILL OIL Omega-3's). That's right-- these are GOOD fats, not bad fats (trans-fatty-acids and saturated fats). Stay away from cow dairy.

Note, never eat a starch with a protein, such as: (white rice, white potato-etc). FOOD Combination Chart!

Spike you metabolism, improve your immune system and cleanse the liver with this drink: 4-squeezed lemons, crush 1-clove garlic, 1-teaspoon cyanine pepper, 1-teaspoon cumin in quart jar---fill remaining quart jar to within 1-inch of top with ionized water from our Aging Younger water ionizer, place lid on jar and shake, take a shot glass AM and PM.

Good fats and Omega-3's are important at every meal because they supply the sense of “satiation” that you need to feel full. The same is true for our Rejuvenis Polyionic Cell Communicator powder. They also slow down the entry of sugar into the blood stream and prevent those morning and afternoon crashes you feel as blood sugar plummets. If your breakfast, lunch and dinner are filled with high levels of "good-fat" foods (monounsaturated fats and  Polyunsaturated), you usually won't think about the bad snack foods between meals. That, in turn, will help you stabilize your blood sugar levels.

4. Remove refined sugars from your life and replace them with natural sugars:

Refined sugar is the enemy, so improve your review and reading of product labels to consciously avoid products made with the refined sugars: white bread or wheat  must be considered sugar because they turn to sugar quickly (like that served with a foot long sandwichs, and bergers) white sugar, and all the artificial sweeteners such as corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, dextrose and fructose. Instead start using natural sweeteners, including pure maple syrup, molasses, stevia is a good one, so is Rapadura (dehydrated cane sugar juice) or raw un-processed bee's honey. This switching of preferences is a lifestyle change, so getting used to it, is not easy, but necessary and it's the right step to take.

5. Limit natural sweets to three times per week down to zero, so the "crash" that happens soon after consuming sugar actually has a medical word for it (bless their little medical hearts)—“hypoglycemia.”

Hypoglycemia as you well know is a state of low blood sugar, not actually a disease. When your blood sugar drops too low (after eating a high sugar, high carb meal) or stays too low (after eating nothing at all) many symptoms can occur.

The first symptoms to set in are usually mental difficulties, because the brain requires a lot of fuel to do its job and glucose is its fuel. So you may have trouble concentrating or processing information, being forgetful, or feeling mentally dull. Other symptoms include anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, irritable (especially when hungry), and depression, crying spells, addictive behavior and cravings for sweets or starches. I want to personally touch base on one addictive behavior, which is smoking. Smoking, even if you are a closet smoker, sneaking one every so often to answer your serotonin symptoms, is extremely damaging to your system. One puff of a cigarette will create 1-trillion (with a T) free radicals to name only one bad effect. In searching for causes when one tests low in carotenoids with our laser, even if a person who is taking many healthy supplements, then smoking, smoking certainly could be a culprit causing the low antioxidant reading. And, of course, if your fuel supply drops too low, fatigue will obviously be a factor.

Many people rely on caffeine to pick themselves up when they crash, creating a "tired-wired" feeling. Many are not aware that the caffeine creates further problems by weakening the adrenal glands which produce hormones that help your body deal with stress.

Blood sugar imbalances occur after eating too many sweets, (sweets are also anything that quickly turns to sugar), including even the natural ones! So it's important to limit even the natural sweets you consume in your diet. The best way to prevent sweets from causing a major crash in your blood glucose levels is to avoid eating them by themselves -- if you do dabble in them on occasion,  eat them with other foods. For instance, don't pile on all the carbs and sugars together: avoid having dessert with a high carbohydrate meal like pasta, bread, or rice; hopefully the only rice you will ever put in your body, is brown rice.

Eliminating refined sugar from the diet can be quite a challenging step, but the impact it will have on your overall health and well-being, is worth it! It will help you control or avoid diabetes. It will help you avoid mood swings and energy swings. It will help you look younger and stay younger and as you may recall that is what we are all about here at the Anti-Aging Clinic---to "Age Younger"!

Many times people try to quit sugar "cold turkey," (which is a mistake) and end up thinking about it all day long until they eventually break down and then start bingeing on sweets. The goal is to stabilize your blood sugar by eating balanced meals at regular intervals throughout the day and adding sensible snacks between meals that never allow your body to feel hunger, so that your serotonin stays balanced and you no longer crave sweets. That's when you'll start to get a handle on the first thing that controls blood sugar.

It's common for many people to rush through lunch, grabbing something quick and convenient, basically whatever it takes to make the hungry feeling go away, such as Foot Long sandwich or burger on white bread); this is a complete reversal of all your efforts. Convenience foods are high in refined carbohydrates, which not only perpetuate the up-and-down cycle of the blood sugar roller coaster, but also weaken the immune system.

Studies have shown that the ingestion of 100-gram portions of carbohydrates, such as glucose, fructose, sucrose, processed honey, and orange juice, all significantly reduced the ability of neutrophils to engulf and destroy bacteria. Neutrophils are abundant in the blood, they quickly enter tissues, and phagocytize pathogens in acute inflammation, which, if that occurs, can be fought off by Rejuvenis OSH Silver, but when nothing is done and inflammation is high then the immune system is weakened by this action and through our poor food choices and little or no supplementation and little or no exercise then the body can’t win the war against the bacteria.

These reducing effects started less than 30 minutes after ingestion of these poor choices and lasted for over five hours. Eating sugar (sugar as I have explained them)  throughout the day is a constant assault on the immune system and can be one of the reasons that your carotenoid level might test low, that is of course if you supplement regularly.

If you are already feeling good, eating should, at the very least, help to maintain your energy level. But if you feel worse an hour or so after eating what you deem to be the correct food, with one of these symptoms then it is the wrong food for your type::

You still feel hungry even though you are physically full
You develop a sweet craving
Your energy level drops
You feel hyper, nervous, angry or irritable
You feel depressed

Suffering these feeling might be due to an improper combination of proteins, fats and carbohydrates at your last meal. You might be eating the perfect foods by the book for your metabolism, but having too much of one type of food in place of another can easily produce the symptoms listed above.

Many people come to the Anti-Aging Clinic eating very high-quality nutritious foods and are still quite ill. They haven't touched sugar or junk food in ages, exercise some and still suffer with many of the above symptoms. There are a number of reasons for this, but one of the major physical ones is related to the fact that they are not eating appropriate foods for their body type and good record keeping is what it will take to determine the right foods for your type.

If you are interested in truly optimizing your health, eliminating drug dependency, improving your weight, and improving your energy -- and in avoiding premature aging -- one of the most important steps you should take is to teach yourself what food type your body requires and eat according to that. What may be very healthy for others is not necessarily as healthy for you, and vice-versa, and eating according to what you find out through symptoms and trial and error, is really the only way to ascertain what is really good for you.

For example, Protein types do better on low-carbohydrate, high-protein and high-fat diets, but in the case of diabetics, the carb is not grain. A typical ratio might be 40 percent protein and 30 percent each of fats and carbohydrates, but the amounts could easily shift to 50 percent fats and as little as 10 percent carbohydrates depending on your individual response, which are the symptoms pointed out earlier; pay close attention to them, record them and experiment until you fine tune what your body type is, and stick with that ratio. Write the symptoms down on a piece of paper and keep them with you to refer to them after each meal. Keep track of your portions of protein, carbs and fats, so you can adjust accordingly.

Carb types normally feel best when the majority of their food is carbohydrate, again with diabetics, grains are not those carbs. There is a major difference between vegetables and grains and yet they are both referenced as "carbs."

So if you are a Carb Type, you could require about 60 percent of your food as carbs, 25 percent protein and 15 percent fat, but this type may need as little as 10 percent fat and as high as 80 percent carbs in exceptional times, guide yourself on how you feel after you eat. If you followed an Atkins Diet you might improve initially but eventually your system would break down because it may have required far more carbohydrate.

Once a person attains a normal weight and does not struggle with other insulin related disorders, it is actually possible for about 15% of the population to consume some grains and remain perfectly healthy. Some Carb types actually can do quite well with grains, but remember this is likely to only be about 15 percent of the population at best.

If your Nutritional Body Type is mixed, your requirements are between the carb and protein types; you will simply discover this by paying attention to your symptoms and writing them down. This is actually the most challenging type to have as ultimately you will have to rely quite heavily on developing your own feedback by answering the questions after every meal about your symptoms just like the other two types, until you hone in on your ratios for each meal.

Don't stress out about the percentages; they are only rough guidelines to help you get started. Even if they needed to be precise, you wouldn't take the time or make the effort to eat exact percentages of foods every single time you ate, especially for the rest of your life, but do give it your best effort.

Additionally, your activity and stress levels will affect and alter the quantity of food, as well as the ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, which you need to feel your best. You must be consistent with your exercise and improve to the level of 2-hours per day, especially for diabetics, until your body can control its insulin.

Last, there is also a circadian rhythm to account for. Your biochemistry moves through various phases throughout the day. These rhythms involve your hormonal output, your acid/alkaline shifts, your waking/sleeping patter times and many other time-based variables. While some people will have a need for the same ratios of protein, fat and carbs at each meal, others will discover that they need very different ratios at the different meals in order to derive optimum energy, well being and performance. So remember to pay close attention to what you consume for each meal, as the percentages will likely change for that particular meal from others, when you noticed certain symptoms from eating in the past. Never allow the body to get hungry and your snack will be determined by symptoms again. Is your snack protein, carb or fat? Only you can find this out.
