Did you know that it is super easy to lose weight?
Yep...stop eating bread, noodles, rice, cereal, potatoes (chips) flour( cakes donuts, pastries, cookies) and other empty starches.
The pounds will simply disappear and you can eat as much as you want...whole bowls of strawberries (with cottage cheese)...the biggest salads...a hamburger (without the bun of course), a big bowl of yogurt,....
Or how about only eating one of those starches once a week?
Did you know that cancer and insulin are corelated? Thats right...cancer eats sugar...you know STARCHES!
It is a well-known scientific fact that cancer cells have a voracious appetite for glucose. Glucose is their unique source of energy, and because of the relatively inefficient way cancer cells burn this fuel, they use up a great deal of it. This is one reason why cancer patients lose so much weight. Because cancer cells require so much glucose, they virtually steal it away from the body's normal cells, thus starving them. From here and
Did you know that eating starches promotes a sudden rise of sugar in your blood?
So why do we tell women with breast cancer to eat low fat...in particular those poor women focus on eating starches...which raise their sugar blood levels.
Today when I check my e-mail there is a news story that Canada is overweight...
In Canada we have this silly "food pyramid" called the Canada Food Guide which encourages people to eat plenty of starches...5-12 times a day! That is completely ridiculous, in fact we don't even NEED to eat most of these priducts EVER. No wonder Canada is overweight if Canadians are eating bread or noodles or grains every day!!!
Being overweight and recovering from cancer are also corelated. It is believed this relationship between cancer and weight is also because of the insulin/sugar blood levels.
Here is a simple way to find out if you need to lose weight.
It is a Body Mass Index (click on the yellow letters to use interactive chart)
What is your BMI...
Now compare your BMI that you just got from that link to the following:
18.5 or less: You are underweight
It is extremely important to make sure you consume a balance diet, especially if you are under weight. Taking a daily supplement is a good way to ensure you get all of the nutrients your body requires. Speak to your family doctor if you have experienced rapid weight loss, or are having trouble gaining weight.
18.6 - 24.9: You are normal weight
This is the weight that every person strives for, so congratulate your self for being bang on. Continue to maintain the weight you’re at by getting daily exercise and eating a balanced diet.
25 - 29.9: You are overweight
You may be overweight, but you are definitely not alone. In fact, most Canadians will fall into this category. It is important to start taking your health more seriously and shed those extra pounds.
30 or greater: You are obese
This shouldn’t be taken lightly. Obesity has been linked to diabetes, heart disease and cancer – just to name a few. If your BMI is higher than 30, consult your physician and start seriously working on a plan to change your lifestyle before it’s too late.
