If you want to lose weight…

Masticate…

I first learned it as Fletcherizing… chewing eat bite 21 times before swallowing. It is big. It is easy. It is free. And it will help.

Jason Fung, M.D., Excerpts from “The Diabetes Code”

page xiv

FACT: TYPE 2 DIABETES IT FULLY REVERSIBLE AND PREVENTABLE

“MOST HEALTH PROFESSIONALS consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease. This promotes the idea that type 2 diabetes is a one-way street, a life sentence with no possibility of parole: the disease continues to get worse until you eventually require insulin injections.”

“But this is actually a great big lie.”

“…: type 2 diabetes is a reversible disease.

“But only diet and lifestyle changes – not medications – will reverse this disease, simply because type 2 diabetes is largely a dietary disease. The most important determinant, of course, is weight loss. Most of the medications used to treat type 2 diabetes do not cause weight loss. Quite the contrary. Insulin, for example, is notorious for causing weight gain. Once patients start on insulin injections for type 2 diabetes, they often sense they are heading down the wrong path.”

“Since weight loss is the key to reversing type 2 diabetes, medications don’t help. We only precent they do, which is the reason most doctors think type 2 diabetes is chronic and progressive. We’ve avoided facing an inconvenient truth: drugs won’t cure a dietary disease. They are about as useful as bringing a snorkel to a bicycle race. The problem is not the disease; the problem is the way we treat the disease.

The same principles used for reversing type 2 diabetes also apply to preventing it. Obesity and type 2 diabetes are closely related, and generally, increased weight increases the risk of disease. The correlation is not perfect, but nevertheless, maintaining and ideal weight is a first step to prevention.”

Interval Training May Be Best for Weight Loss

Aside from the fact that exercise alone will never provide the long-term results in weight loss that most people would like (for that you would search this Blog for Jason Fung, MD) , this research is still useful.

The Juice Lady: Not Just a Pretty Face

Here is a great example of one of her Posts. It is timely, well done and for almost every one, safe. (Some people are just too sick for the cure – and a juice fast would be too extreme… so talk with your doc if you think that might be you!)

I have Blogged before on juicing (which I do not favor) verses blending (which I do favor) and all of the reasons why. Use the search box to find all related Posts. Start with ‘green drinks’:-)

WHEN You Eat Matters

This research (on mice) reinforces old advice and other human research on the value of eating schemes, such as the “after 8 and before 8” routines. Whether restricted calories will result in weight loss may be tied to whether or not you eat at reasonable times.

This is something I have talked about with patients for thirty years, and Blogged about off and on for the past ten years. Most recently the research on fasting revealed critically important relationships between eating the last meal early and eating the first meal a little later: almost magical improvements in all the numbers that mark the progress from slightly sick to obese and on to metabolic syndrome and the deadly diseases that follow.

It is ironic that doing almost nothing (actually nothing – that is what fasting is) can be so profoundly healthy.

For more information on all of these words, try typing them into the search box on the right – there are probably a dozen or so Posts on each subject:-)
