Less Carbohydrates = Less Diabetes & Heart Disease

Since the introduction of the low-fat guidelines, diabetes and obesity have doubled and tripled, and heart disease remains the #1 cause of death in North America.

low-fat

Why?

Because saturated fat was never the cause of atherosclerosis.  And in an effort to reduce it, we ate more belly fat forming, blood sugar raising, insulin resistance causing CARBOHYDRATES!

Fortunately, it’s still possible to reverse this damage, and prevent a more serious condition. By lowering your carbohydrate intake, you can lose the excess fat, improve your insulin sensitivity, and put your best foot forward at preventing diabetes, and heart disease.  Even if you’re already insulin resistant, obese, and diabetic!

A notable study from 1984, took diabetic Australian Aboriginals away from a modern high-carb and refined food diet they had unfortunately become accustomed to since adapting to North American culture, and put them back on their native diet. The switch to wild meat (kangaroo, crocodile, shellfish) and fresh foods (yams, figs) not only made them lose over 15lbs, and improve their cholesterol, but they actually reversed the diabetes!

Similarly, a 2003 study on the effects of a carbohydrate restricted diet on the treatment of the metabolic syndrome, led to the following results:

  • 13% reduction in total cholesterol (not really a concern)
  • 16% reduction in LDL cholesterol
  • 38% reduction in triglycerides
  • 82% reduction in the dangerous LDL dense particles
  • 13% increase in HDL cholesterol

The only catch is, you need to start NOW.

Stay Lean!
