We will not only stay alive, but we’ll actually THRIVE without any carbohydrate.
How can that be?
Carbohydrate, every carbohydrate, organic or corrupted, factory or farmed, is simply glucose molecules or chains of glucose molecules. And our body creates its own glucose. Creates its own glucose?! Yes.
Our body can and will create its own supply of glucose, in just the right amount that our body might need at any particular time. Our body creates glucose from both protein and fat. And our body creates ketones, a far superior fuel that is long lasting, and clean burning. It’s fuel that our cells actually prefer and comes from both our dietary and body fat.
The (Science) Game Changer
Uncovering this science truth was our family’s game-changer. That we can choose how we will fuel our body is liberating. Back to the ADA recommended consumption of 240 grams of carbohydrate daily. They don’t tell you that the human body, your body, is designed to operate optimally at a blood sugar amount of 4 grams…..yes, you read that right…just 4 grams.
“Along with their recommended consumption
of 240 grams of carbohydrate daily, the ADA
does not tell us that the human body is designed
for just 4 grams.”
How can consuming 240 grams of carbohydrate, which is literally 240 grams of glucose, be a good idea when the human body is designed for just 4 grams? And if you are diabetic you are at a further disadvantage, obviously, because your insulin/blood sugar regulating system is already compromised.
Would we pour more water into a reservoir whose dam has been breached? Would we pour lighter fluid onto a fire that we are trying to put out? Would we pour more sugar/glucose into a bloodstream that is already overflowing with it? Every gram of glucose/carbohydrate we eat will have a corresponding insulin response. Can you see why our insulin levels, as a nation, are out the roof?
Our pancreas will produce, and produce, and produce insulin any and every time our blood sugar is flooded with more glucose/carbohydrate than the ideal set point of 4 grams. The condition that is Type 2 Diabetes is the outcome of a body whose cells have grown desensitized to the powerful hormone, insulin. Since insulin, over a period of time, was being produced so often and in such great amounts the cells grew resistant to it. Insulin resistance. This is Type 2 Diabetes.
Type 2 Diabetes Sucks.
Fortunately, It Can Be Undone.
By applying basic science, diabetes can be undone. It can catch that thief, robbing you of your right to enjoy food, energy, peace of mind.
Diabetes can also be a messenger. The message is right there, if you choose to see it.
Knowing trumps believing. Doing trumps hoping.
