Diabetic As Well As The General Population Nutritional Awareness Of Your Body Type

Diabetes and Weight Control

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.

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. 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. So without a good exercise
program and complete awareness of what you are eating and when you eat it, you will be faced
with an up-hill battle.

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

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.

If you only implement drug strategies to treat your blood sugar level, you are destined for premature
death. 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. Taking drugs to control insulin can exacerbate the following:

bullet

          Heart disease and stroke

bullet

          High blood pressure

bullet

          Blindness

bullet

          Kidney disease

bullet

          Nervous system disease

bullet

          Amputations

bullet

          Dental disease

bullet

          Pregnancy complications

Fortunately, nearly 100 percent of type 2 diabetics can be successfully beaten -- meaning you may
no longer have the symptoms of diabetes, or the high risk of developing the above health
complications -- if you are willing to implement our recommendations.

If one is compliant with these recommendations the likelihood of successfully going off of drugs and
 having normal blood sugars is extremely good.

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise is the key to the body taking back control of you insulin balancing mechanisms.

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, until you can get your blood sugar levels under control.

Eliminate grains and sugars from your diet. For the last 50 years, many people have been following
the nutritional recommendations dictated by conventional health agencies, which advise a high complex
carbohydrate, low saturated fat diet. The end result has been a 700 percent increase in diabetes in the
same time frame and many have come to view diabetes as an incurable chronic disease…

This is clearly not true, but it’s the inevitable result of seriously flawed dietary recommendations.

Instead, you’ll want to eliminate foods that your body will react to by creating insulin, which includes all types
of sugars and grains -- even “healthy” grains such as whole, organic grains. This means avoiding all breads,
pasta, cereals, rice, potatoes, and corn (which is in fact a grain). You may even need to avoid fruits until your
blood sugar is under control.

Remove the implanted thought process that grains, fruits and veggies are carbs. While they are carbs each
are in a different class and your body will react differently to each of them.

If you are one of these individuals who need to lower their insulin levels you must investigate what nutritional
direction you need to take. What affects one person in one way may not affect another and vice versa.

So what nearly all of these people may benefit from is not a low-carb diet (the Atkins Diet), but the grain-free diet.

You will discover that you belong to one of three general types:

bullet

Protein

bullet

Carb / without grain

bullet

Or Mixed

Generally speaking, eating a meal that is right for you is a process that you will undertake.

What you eat should produce marked and lasting improvement in your energy, your mental capacities, your
emotional well-being, and leave you feeling well-satisfied for several hours and if not, you are eating incorrectly.

If you are already feeling good, eating should, at the very least, help to maintain your energy level. But if you feel 
an hour or so after eating what you deem to be the correct food, and begin to feel worse in some way
such as:

bullet

You still feel hungry even though you are physically full

bullet

You develop a sweet craving

bullet

Your energy level drops

bullet

You feel hyper, nervous, angry or irritable

bullet

You feel depressed

If you are feeling the above symptoms, it 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 my clinic eating very high-quality nutritious foods and are still quite sick. They haven't
 touched sugar or junk food in ages, exercise some and still suffer with many health problems. 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.

 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, 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
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 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 can 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. 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 shot.

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 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. 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.
