“Tip 2. Keep sugary foods to a minimum
Added sugar is pretty much everywhere and you are likely eating far too much of it. Not only is this stopping you from losing weight, it is effectively increasing your chances of becoming obese. Depending on your sugar intake, you could even risk developing a myriad of other diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome.
The trouble nowadays is that most folk have become functionally hypoglycaemic (2), that is, they have entrained their bodies to be artificially spiked with sugar and insulin. It has become the “norm” to regularly consume snacks of sugary tea, biscuits and other such treats in between meals.
Thus resulting in continual training of their bodies to feed of what’s in the gut, versus living off its structure (body fat). The key here is to feed the body effectively so that the body doesn’t crave.
In terms of weight loss tips, this is one of the most important – become accustomed to reading labels and avoid added sugar as if it’s the kryptonite to your Superman.
Sugar has some profound effects on our bodies; none of them are notably good. Consuming large amounts of sugar (100 grams + per day), significantly increases your insulin level. High insulin is typically associated with fat storage.
You can think of insulin an energy storage hormone. Sugar is fast energy and if you are not burning it off quick enough, you are most likely going to store it as fat. In fact, it is proven that insulin transports sugar in to fat cells (3). Furthermore, insulin makes fat, and the more insulin you’re producing, the more fat you’ll be storing.
Low glycemic index is best for weight loss
Nevertheless, not all carbohydrates are your enemy because not all carbohydrates are equal. It’s true that all the carbohydrates you eat ultimately become glucose, but the route that they take to get to the glucose varies tremendously. Pure sugar (glucose) takes no digesting at all and will very rapidly increase your blood levels and spike insulin.
They key is to choose your carbohydrate sources carefully. Eat only complex carbohydrates that don’t digest too quickly and cause a rapid increase in insulin.
The ability of a carbohydrate to increase insulin is measured by its glycemic index (GI). The lower the glycemic index of a food, the less insulin you’ll get from eating it. The glycemic index uses a scale of 0-100, with 100 being pure glucose.”
I’m Linda. And I tried it all.
Atkins, Southbeach, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig.
And I even listened to that silly baseball guy who talked about the shakes on TV for all those years.
And yet, since I had my second daughter at 28, I had gained even more weight and had not lost any…
Well, maybe a few pounds for a little while but then it all comes roaring back when I stop whatever gimmick I’m on that month.
You should’ve seen me in my college days. I was tall, slim and had been blessed by the good Lord with an hourglass figure that always turned heads.
Hey, it’s how I attracted my husband Tom!
But after Andrea was born… I couldn’t get back down to my normal 130. I’m 5 foot 7, and that was always a great weight on me.
Yet I’ve spent the better part of 20 years pushing 220 pounds.
Then one sleepless night, I stumbled on a health segment on MSNBC…
Featuring Todd Pittman, a civil engineer from Asheville, North Carolina.
What was unique about Todd’s situation was that he was able to finally lose 68 pounds by following a simple 10-second “morning trigger” after struggling to lose weight for so many years.
Todd started by exposing the biggest nutrition lies the big fitness and weight loss players preach.
Just to push sales of their fad diets to make millions of dollars.
“To lose weight successfully, you shouldn’t eat less. Nor should you cut out carbs. Nor should you exercise until you drop,” he sternly quipped.
He then shared a multi-year study that demonstrated consistent and aggressive cardio routines have little effect on weight loss.
And that doing lots of endless cardio is actually bad for your health.
At that moment, it dawned on me that how all of the things I thought I was doing right – starving myself, running until I ached, eliminating carbs, yadda, yadda, yadda— they were actually holding me back rather than helping!
Can you believe that?
All that time and effort, not to mention thousands of dollars down the drain because I was fed lies.
Todd continued to explain how our bodies work. With only some minor changes, no matter your age, shape or size, you can kick your body into fat burning mode for much longer than normal.
Todd then shared his simple 10-second “morning trigger” that is scientifically proven to accelerate your metabolism and burn stubborn fat.
I listened intently and jotted down everything I heard as quickly as I could.
I remembered being skeptical — despite Todd showing a “before” picture and an “after” picture of himself from a couple of months ago.
But I owed it to myself to at least give this morning trigger a try.
And really, I was desperate to try anything.
So, that same week, I started the simple 10-second “morning trigger.”
You won’t believe what happened next!
In a single week, I lost 9 pounds and could really see the difference right away. My hips seemed slimmer and my jeans started to loosen up.
So I kept following Todd’s advice and I actually lost 67 pounds total in the next 5 months!
I’m not down to 130, but at my age and for my height, I think 145 is pretty darn good.
And, at 44 years old, I look amazing in a sun dress and I feel 20 years younger… and to tell a bit of a secret… Tom can’t keep his hands off me!
Since then, I have found out that Todd made it his mission in life to share this healthy weight loss discovery with women all across the world.
Todd’s discovery has made such a big impact on my life that I would regret it if I did not share his presentation with others.
Imagine waking up every morning full of energy and loving what you see in the mirror…
Imagine enjoying the foods you love: pasta, wine, or even a dessert — completely guilt-free…
And imagine feeling good and living your life without obsessing about every single calorie you eat…
All while knowing your health is being protected by one of the most powerful natural healing rituals ever discovered.
If you’re a woman who has struggled with weight loss, you owe it to yourself to watch Todd’s presentation and finally have the solution you need to lose weight and take full control of your life once and for all.
The consequences would have been disastrous had I not have strapped on my faith and followed Todd’s 10-second “morning trigger”.
I would never be living the life of my dreams right now…
And I would have continued to gain more weight and be inundated with a whole set of chronic diseases including heart-attacks, diabetes and chronic joint pains.
I really hope it has the same impact on you as it did on me. Because the information you’re about to learn has literally transformed my life.
