The danger with high sugar content in the blood stream is that it is like gravel which rubs against the veins and arteries, especially on vulnerable points in the eyes and the extremities – a reason why diabetics lose their eyes and extremities. So high sugar content, even though it may be eventually regulated, may do damage during the spike.
The author gives helpful instructions on how to read package content, especially linked to sugar. For example, although the label may say 4 g of sugar, the introductory part may say units in tablespoons, meaning that there may be 10 times the amount of sugar in the entire package.
Many other helpful topics. Worth a read if you eat!
This is real-world, and totally achievable!!!!
After looking into many "diets" I am excited to kick-off my New Year armed with this information.
He covers a lot of material that we do know and a lot that I didn't know as well.
He has put together some sample meal plans that will help you with your weight loss and general health.
Lots of case studies as well.
I also love the fact his meal plans can be mixed around and configured very easily to your liking. He does say in the book to not go from one end of the spectrum to another because you set yourself up for failure right off the bat. He reiterates throughout the book for each aspect to take your time adjusting to changes. Switch out your morning breakfast Timmy's run to something more wholesome, work yourself off colas, and sugary drinks. Just baby step yourself to build your own "Food Budget". The same goes for exercise. Work up to it, don't go from 0 to 60. This type of plan is possible for anyone, and the even better part is no points, or calorie counting. I would suggest investing in a scale. I sure am, just to learn what a proper portion is instead of "guestimating".
I will be recommending this book to my friends and family for sure! My Mom recommended it and I am only upset she didn't recommend it sooner!!
