Recently the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine reported on the largest study of its kind in medical history.
The findings revealed that adults who consumed the most sugar had an almost three times greater risk of dying prematurely from heart disease.
This report emanating from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention helps corroborate our decades-long warning about the lethal vascular impact of after-meal glucose spikes.
This study showed it does not take much in the way of “added sugars” to increase fatal heart problems. Just daily consumption of a sugary roll, a single soda, and ice cream placed adults at a 2.75-fold greater cardiac risk!
As part of any patient program we strongly encourage you to follow our low glycemic nutrition plan to eliminate this potential cardiovascular risk.
Watch the video below to see what soda does to your arteries. And what alternatives you can drink to replace the daily soda habit!
The Renue Health Nutritional Program is part of your new lifestyle and is essential for your success to:
- Maximize the results of your medical management program.
- Prevent acute & chronic disease such as: heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, type II diabetes, degenerative diseases and cancer.
- Increase metabolism and energy.
- Improved strength and endurance
When a low glycemic meal is consumed, blood glucose elevates at a slower pace, allowing the pancreas to moderate the amount of insulin released so it is relative to the volume of glucose. Because there is less insulin circulating in the bloodstream, fewer cells absorb glucose; levels never fall below optimal range. Food cravings and low energy crashes diminish once you adjust to the diet, as the body is consistently able to utilize body fat as its primary source of energy.
Consuming balanced low glycemic meals maintains a consistent balance of hormone levels, allowing the body to function efficaciously with optimal health.
Characteristics of a Low Glycemic Lifestyle:
- Consistently high energy levels
- Satisfaction from eating
- Efficient immunity
- Weight loss and ability to maintain weight
Insulin Competes with Growth Hormone
These two hormones use the same receptor site to communicate with cells; therefore, only one hormone can be functionally elevated at a time. Managing insulin with a low glycemic diet will allow growth hormone to be optimally high and functional.
In practicing what we preach, we recognized that low glycemic nutrition is a critical element in our healthy lifestyle and that following a low glycemic nutrition plan will help to create a reliable reserve of daily energy for us to pursue our goals with increased vigor and vitality.
