This is all very true with one major problem.

The answer to weight loss lies in understanding how the body

Have you ever heard the statement, “keep it simple stupid”. We can do this in weight loss with the consideration of a measure, called the Glycemic Index

 

The Glycemic Index can be used to guide you in making a better selection of foods.

 

BACW Weight Loss is a comprehensive program for healthy living and successful weight management.  We do it in a way that will help step you through your weight loss and provide you with knowledge to maintain a healthily lifestyle that will last a lifetime.

 

Understanding Insulin and Fat Storage

As stated in our introduction to HFT Weight Loss,  to be successful with weight control, you must understand how insulin works in the body.

·         fats,

·         carbohydrates

·         proteins.

 

In proper amounts, insulin is

·         Excess insulin in your system will cause your body to begin storing fat.

·         Excess insulin in your system will prevents your body from burning existing fat.

·         Excess insulin in your system will cause an increase in cholesterol.

 

 

Lets Look At How The Gaining Weight Process Works

Too much refined sugar and starchy foods are one of the leading causes of over weight and obesity.  Since refined sugar and starchy foods are highly processed

·         They are rapidly broken down and enter quickly into the blood as blood sugar.

·         This causes high amounts of insulin to be secreted into the blood in an attempt to lower the blood sugar levels

·         Besides the problems that to much insulin causes, it puts a strain on the pancreas to secrete these large amounts of insulin.

The increased consumption of  refined sugar and starchy foods such as

·         white bread,

·         pasta

·         processed sugar filled foods such as,

·               cereals

·               cookies

·               cakes

·               candy

·               soft drinks

·               most snack foods

have a very high glycemic index rating and are largely responsible for our epidemic of

Sugar and Your Body

 

Eating food that are high in fat does not make you gain weight

·         unless your consumption of these fatty food puts you over your required calorie count for a given meal

and/or

·         the total calorie count that your body need for the whole day.

 

The way that your body stores fat is actually what makes you gain weight.

·         Over consumption of high glycemic index carbohydrates and sugars stimulates your body’s production of insulin— which is the body’s fat storage hormone.

·               Insulin lowers blood sugar levels when they are too high

·               Insulin first stores blood sugar in the muscles and liver.

·         The average person can store about 250—450 grams of useable energy in the muscles and about 100 grams of useable energy in the liver.

·         Once your muscle and liver storehouses are full, hello fat cells.

 

Insulin causes the body to store fat.

When your body’s storehouses are full in the liver and muscles,  excess blood sugars are then converted into blood fat and stored in your fat cells through out the body.

·         When you eat foods that are high on the glycmeic index, such as

·         breads

·         pasta

·         potatoes

·         corn

·         rice

·         These food are changed into blood sugar rather rapidly

 

When the storehouses are filled, the excess blood sugar with the help of insulin, is then converted into blood fat by the liver.

·         The fat in the blood is then stored away in fat cells.

 

The Insulin Roller Coaster

The Insulin Roller Coaster occurs when you over and over again consume foods that are changed too quickly into blood sugars.

If you eat foods that have high glycemic index levels,

·         your body produces more insulin

·         This sends you on an insulin roller coaster if you do this through out the day.

·         When you are on the insulin roller coaster your fat storage increases

 

The insulin Roller Coaster goes like this,

·         If the body digests food that turns to blood sugar rapidly, high amounts of insulin are released in an attempt to control the high blood sugar levels.

·         The high level of insulin will convert more blood sugar than required, creating a drop in blood sugar.

·         Your body begins to feel tired and weak from the low blood sugar level,  so your brain demands more sugar.

·         When there is not enough blood sugar in the blood, to supply the needs of the  brain,  you will get cravings for something sweet. The brain requires a constant supply of blood sugar or glucose.

·         When too much insulin is secreted, such as when you eat a snack that is high in sugar like a

·         doughnut

·         Coke

·         cookies

·         the pancreas then responds by secreting enough insulin to lower the sugar.

·         Often too much insulin is secreted and this will lowers the sugar too much

·         This creates low blood sugar levels.

·         Low blood sugar means that there is not enough glucose in the blood to meet the requirements of the brain. The brain has learned from the past that it can get its needs met from certain foods. 

·         Based on these eating experience from the past, the brain will then sends out a craving for these food,  which are usually;

·          cake,

·         candy,

·         cookies,

·         fruit juices,

·         ice cream

·         white breads,

If you do not get your “fix”  rather quickly some of the following symptoms of low blood sugar may occur;

Spacey Ness,

Feeling Shaky

Irritability,

Feeling Tired,

Headaches

Sweating,

Fast Heart Rate,

Hunger Pains,

Mood Swings

Problems Concentrating..

Sleepiness

Wild Cravings

 

·         When you consume high glycemic index foods frequently, your body can develop low blood sugar levels within a few hours. After repeated high low blood sugar levels, your body develops an additive craving for something sweet to eat

·         These addictive cravings cause you to reach again and again for your favorite sugar  “fix” in order to raise your blood sugar to a normal level.

·         The problem is that the food eaten to raise the blood sugar, raise it again to high.

·         So the way you go,  high low high low, over and over again.

·         This behavior can range from slight to extreme.  Your current weight could be a good indication as to where on this range of slight to extreme you fit.

Hence, the roller coaster eating cycle.

Over weight and obese individuals usually cannot break out of this vicious cycle without the knowledge of the problem and many times with out professional assistance.

 

The end result of the insulin roller coaster is constantly craving the starchy, sugary foods of your own additions throughout the day.  This keeps the insulin levels too high which result in the following.

·               Causes the body to store fat.

·               Prevents the body from using these stored fats.

·               If you consume a lot of high glycemic index  starchy and sugary foods on a frequent basis, your insulin levels will remain high.

·               If insulin levels remain high, your fat is then locked into our fat cells.

·               This makes it very easy to gain weight and extremely difficult to lose weight.

·               Elevated insulin levels prevent the body from burning stored body fat for energy.

 

Exercise may not help you lose weight if you don’t eat right.

If you eat high glycemic index foods throughout the day, your storehouses in the muscles and liver stay full. All the excess blood sugar will be converted to body fat. The high insulin level will tell your body to not to release any of its stored fat. Therefore, you can work out for hours and still not loose any weight.  Your blood  sugar levels are remaining  too high throughout the day. Your body will not only store this excess blood sugar as fat,  the high blood sugar level causes high insulin levels, thus not letting the body release any of the fats that are stored in all the unwanted bulges all over  your body. 

This is all very true with one major problem,  Most Weight Lose Is Temporary

On top of all that even if you were to eat foods that were low on the glycemic index and these foods are any way processed,  most of the nutriments have been removed and you are eating dead foods.  I do not care how much weight that you loose, your body will never be satisfied because you are not feeding it.  The hunger and cravings can not be satisfied when your body is not being nourished.  

So in all probability it want be long and the weight will be back on again, either soon or very soon.
