Dewey BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? (61* d) RE: BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? 29 Aug 04

Insulin is regulated by a variety of factors in the Body. Alcohol is not a positive one,it stimulates the body to produce excess insulin, insulin combines with sugar to produce energy, It not burned up, it turns to fat. Avoiding simple carbohydrates (i.e. sugar and alcohol) regulate normal blood sugar levels. you are REALLY STRESSING OUT your pancreas if you consume too much sugar or alcohol is one sitting, This could lead to diabetes if you are not careful.

As For Maintaining Weight:Stay Away From White Refined Breads, i.e. Whitebread, Donuts, Bagels Etc. (use them sparingly in moderation)

Contrary to the fradulant irresponsible Fad Diets (Like Aktins For Example) Complex Carbohydrates Are Good For You, And are necessary to Fuel Your Body.(i.e. you body must have some fuel to function)

As long as the Complex Carbs are used, you should have no problem regualting your bloodsugar. Complex carbs enter the bloodstream slower than simple sugar, they also have the added benefit of fiber which is also good for the health of the internal organs of the body, and thus the blood sugar is not spiked like it is with simple carbohydrates. Complex Carbs provide the proper balance of energy for the activities we do during the day. The Carbohydrate is not stored as Fat if exercise is combined, becasue the body needs and uses the energy that it gets from these sources.

Complex Carbs are those like Cracked Wheat Bread, Brown Rice (not white as it doesn't have the shell) Beans of All Kinds, Legumes, Lentils etc. Add some extra fiber and have some vegetables. You body will be cleaner inside and out than it you fill it up with EXCESSIVE amounts of meats, dairy and oils.

Too Much Intake of Fat and Simple Carbohydrates lead to the Following Conditions: Obesity, Diabetes.

TOO MUCH Fat Oils and Meat especially leads to colon and various other cancers, constipation, type 2 diabetes, early aging, brain disfuntion, kidney stones, bad breath, skin problems etc.

When You eliminate the processed food of mankind and the oils in them, AND EXERCISE, you increase insulin senstivity. Insulin sensitivity is the results of clean blood, with limited levels of sugars entering the bloodstream, exercise provides the oxygen necessary to breakdown these sugars and turn the into energy, When You exercise, because your nutrition was balanced, you use up the excess energy which likewise cannot be turned into fat and stored on your body (love handles, buttocks etc.) The bloodstream is being cleansed by diatray fiber that protects the integraty of the vessels.
Missing when you consume Porter House Steaks and Other Oils (used in irresponsible amount on the Atkins Diet.

Please remember too if you consume too much meat and oils, that those fat lipids enter into your bloodstream, and must be broken down by your liver, and it takes many hours to do this. If you are on the Atkins Diet, they may never get broken down as there is a constant stream of new fat entering the bloodstream.

This Fat leads to insulin insensitivity; and, if combined with a poor and constant fat based diet (and no execise) and no exercise will lead to weight gain.

Also remember with you simple sugars and fat, you are creating a calorie cocktail. In sugars there are 4 calories per gram, and in Fat There are a whopping 9 calories of fat per gram. If you eat an Apple Pie For example at one sitting and Done execise, you will most definitely not be able to use the energy up and it will thus be stored as fat.

This is why the MacDonald menu has been so criticized in times past. They Supersize Everything. A Large Sugarly Coke the Size of a Jug (to Spike your sugar), A Greasy Doubble Hamburger With All the Dressing (and White Bread to Spike You Sugar), Combined with a Supersized Order of Fries (to Spike Your Sugar). Not to Mention the Calorie Content which is probably somewhere upward to 1400 Calories. Beinging
In these as well as alcohol will most certainly effect you heart, bloodpressure and organs of the long term.

Also Just As Unhealthy is the foolish Atkins craze, Which Tells People they don't need any energy sources for the day, but relies on toxic ketones to burn up the excess fat stored on our sides. Sure you'll lose weight but at a cost to your health and well being.

Of course people love this diet because it tells them they don't need to eat heatlhy and can have all the steaks they could ever desire, irreguardless of the circumstance to the bodies. There is more to weight loss than just losing weight. There is also for example the issues of diet, nutrition and execise, All of which are important on a true weight loss program over the long term.

I have diabetes, ande have to have Carbohydrates, and the only wayh I was able to use weigh (this needing to take insulin and carbohydrates into my body) was to eat right and execise.

I did lose the weight, plus my insulin intake went down as well as my blood pressure, heart rate etc, even digestion improved, no constipation, stomach indigestion etc.

Contraguations on using the common sense, we all stray from this path on occasion. But Healthy eating and exercise are the key.

Not reducing your carbohydrate exclusively and falling for the fade diets, which make millions off of people while at the same time killing there bodies.

Find someone spiritual and likeminded to your goals and get back on the path, even if you fall at times.

I know as I am was and am a hypocrite, I still eat this crap too often, and sit around, yet I know that there is a price for my doing so, Anyway back to the treadmill and the produce department is a good one.

Good Luck to You and Me Both, as in this fast paced world we all sometimes get a bit off course in taking care of our health.
