- instruction on nutritional programs teaching you:
- about metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance and whether you are at risk.
- the proper amount of low glycemic foods you should be eating on a daily basis to fit your needs.
- how often, and the proper times you should be eating during the day.
- the correct food combination of protein, fats and carbohydrates.
Insulin is the key hormone for fat gain and loss. After you eat carbohydrates, your blood sugar levels will increase. It is the insulin’s job to push the glucose into the cells where it is used for energy. Insulin also helps muscles, fat and liver cells store sugar that can be released when it is needed. Each cell surface has insulin receptors which act like little doors that open and close to regulate the amount of blood sugar allowed to flow in.
If the body takes in too much simple sugars found in carbohydrates, the cells are bombarded with so much insulin that the “doors” begin to malfunction and shut down. If the doors aren’t open, the pancreas feels the need to produce even more insulin to push into the cells because it cannot perform its function to lower sugar levels tending to leave the insulin floating in the blood stream. A vicious cycle is now in place resulting in a condition called Insulin resistance which inhibits our fat cells from giving up their stores of energy to let us lose weight.
Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of conditions including high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels, excess body fat, especially “belly fat” or abnormal cholesterol levels; which, when they occur together, increase your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Having only one of these conditions doesn’t mean that you have metabolic syndrome. However, any of these conditions will increase your risk of serious disease. If more than one of these conditions occur in combination, your risk is even greater.
If you have metabolic syndrome or any of the components of metabolic syndrome, aggressive lifestyle changes can delay or even prevent the development of many serious health problems.
DO YOU HAVE INSULIN RESISTANCE?
1/3rd of US population has insulin resistance and the diagnosis is fairly simple. Place a check any item that applies to you:
□Do you have a family history of diabetes, being overweight, abnormal cholesterol or triglycerides, high blood pressure or heart disease?
□ Do you crave sugary or starchy foods frequently?
□ Is it difficult for you to lose weight, especially around your middle?
□ Do you feel that you are addicted to carbohydrates?
□ Do you experience shakiness, difficulty thinking, or headaches (often in the afternoon) that go away after you eat?
□ Are you ten pounds or more over what you would call your “ideal” weight?
□ Do you exercise fewer than two times per week?
□ Do you have high blood pressure?
□ Do you have high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol?
□ Do you have polycystic ovary syndrome?
□ Have you ever experienced acanthosis nigricans skin changes – velvety, mossy, flat, wart-like darkened skin on your neck or armpits or underneath your breasts?
If you answered yes to three or more of these questions, you are likely insulin resistant. The more yes answers you gave, the more likely you are to have insulin resistance and the greater your risk is of developing health problems, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
