Diabetes Breakthrough Works in 1 DAY!
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you have diabetes (or are on your way to getting it), you’ve probably been told how risky it is for your health.
And you’ve probably tried everything from finger pricks to pricey pills to painful insulin injections to keep your blood sugar numbers in line.
But it looks like controlling your blood sugar may have just gotten A LOT easier.
Recent research has revealed a foolproof way of eating that can help you lower your blood sugar fast.
And the best part? You may see results in as little as one day.
The secret formula is eating three low-carb meals a day. That’s it.
Researchers from the University of Michigan split 32 postmenopausal women with healthy blood sugar into four different groups.
They were all given meals with different amounts of carbs (from 30–60 percent of the total calories). All meals had the same calorie counts.
After eating the meals, all of the groups were measured for insulin resistance, a major contributor to high blood sugar, diabetes and fatty liver disease.
The low-carb groups showed significantly lower levels of insulin resistance when compared with the high-carb groups.
And it took only three meals — as in just ONE day of eating.
However, the high-carb groups had consistently high levels of insulin resistance. That remained true even in the high-carb groups that exercised regularly, which is supposed to lower insulin resistance and blood sugar levels.
So what’s the lesson here? You can better control your blood sugar and lower your risk of developing diabetes in just 24 hours by cutting carbs.
And the good news for low-carb diets doesn’t end there…
Another recent study shows that diabetics who ate diets that were 40 percent carbs or lower can slash their liver fat nearly in half in six weeks. If liver fat is left untreated, it contributes to diabetes and liver cirrhosis.
Simply put, cutting your carbs to around 30 percent may keep you from the enduring a lifelong struggle with one of America’s biggest killers.
Don’t worry, though: Giving up carbs doesn’t mean you’re also giving up flavor. Instead, it gives you the green light to enjoy breakfasts full of eggs and bacon, chicken Caesar salad lunches and steak and green bean dinners. Just be sure to pass on the dessert.
