You probably feel like you have tried everything to lose weight and get your blood sugars down, yet you still can’t achieve the results you want.
But I have some good news. It is possible to achieve stable blood sugars and lose that unwanted belly fat with nutritious foods and meals that you will love eating every day.
No doubt you’ve seen plenty of conflicting and confusing claims about different diets as you trawl through the endless stories on Google, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. When will you find the “secret” that will allow you to lose weight without cravings for those “bad” foods?
TODAY, RIGHT NOW, it is YOUR turn…
You’re probably thinking, “But I’ve seen a million pages claiming that their way is the only way to lose weight and reverse diabetes. What makes this any different?”
The answer is simple…
Most recipe books and diet plans do not provide your body with the ESSENTIAL vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and amino acids that it craves to function optimally.
You can think of micronutrients as microscopic motivational speakers that give your cells energy so you can be the ultimate version of yourself. But your body can’t make them. You have to get them from the food you eat every day.
But in addition to dialing in your nutrient density, we can also help you increase the satiety value of the food you eat (so you feel full with fewer calories) as well as managing the insulin load of your diet to stabilise your blood sugars.
After extensive research and analysis to optimise food choices for myself and my family, I identified three fundamental principles that are critical to losing weight and optimising blood sugars.
But before I let you in on these principles you need to know to ensure your success, let me introduce myself.
With a personal family history of Type 2 Diabetes and obesity, fat loss and diabetes are topics that are very close to my heart.
More importantly, my wife Monica has Type 1 diabetes, so I understand the importance of good blood sugar control and its impact on quality of life.
In addition to my journey to maintain healthy body fat levels, I have been on a personal quest to find a way to optimise blood sugars and insulin levels since we got married nineteen years ago.
I crunched the numbers on six hundred thousand days of food diaries from thousands of people to identify the critical factors that will empower you to stabilise your blood sugars and take back control of your appetite.
I was able to identify the most powerful quantifiable nutritional parameters, including the optimal nutrient intakes that align with greater satiety. I then set about designing the systems to give YOU the best chance of reaching your goal.
So, here is what I learned...
The Source of Calories Matters More Than the Amount of Calories
You’ve probably been told your whole life that the way to lose weight is to simply try to eat less. But, despite your best efforts, your appetite and cravings always win out over your willpower.
I’m not about to tell you that energy balance doesn’t matter. But, if that’s ALL you focus on, you are destined to fail... again and again and again.
You already know intuitively that there’s a massive difference between a doughnut and foods like salmon, steak or broccoli.
The doughnut is going to leave you with cravings and provide very little in the way of beneficial nutrients. Meanwhile, you may struggle to finish a piece of steak, broccoli or salmon with the same calorie count. You’re also much less likely to find yourself mindlessly raiding the fridge later that night than if you ate the doughnut.
Makes sense, right?
Simply using more willpower to eat less of the same foods that made you fat will leave you with cravings that will derail all your hard work.
Before long, your subconscious brain takes over to ensure you survive the self-imposed famine, regardless of how much fat you may be carrying on your bum and belly.
You feel like you are locked into a vicious and inescapable cycle.
You go on a diet to lose weight and try to eat fewer calories.
You don’t get the critical vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids your body requires when you try to eat less of the same old foods.
Inadequate intakes of essential minerals and vitamins result in deficiencies that lead to low energy levels, poor sleep and cravings.
Before long, your appetite increases, and you find yourself gaining weight (not to mention the feelings of guilt, shame and failure for not trying hard enough).
The Law of Small Numbers
Diabetes guru Dr Richard Bernstein talks about The Law of Small Numbers as the key to achieving stable and healthy blood glucose levels and how big inputs make big mistakes and small inputs make small mistakes.
To achieve stable blood sugar levels, we need to reduce the inputs of the things that raise and lower our blood sugars.
The things that raise insulin levels over the short term are refined carbohydrates and to a lesser degree protein. Because it is impossible to match our insulin and glucose perfectly, a high insulin load leaves us on a continual “blood sugar rollercoaster”.
However, once we can reduce the inputs that raise our blood sugar, we can reduce our insulin requirements and achieve more stable and lower blood sugars.
I spent a LOT of time analysing the latest Food Insulin Index data to understand how the different elements of our food impacted our insulin and blood sugars.
With this knowledge, we can empower you to make better food choices that require less insulin and stabilise your blood sugars.
While imperative for type 1 diabetes management, this insight is also crucial for people with Type 2 diabetes or prediabetes to enable them to achieve healthy blood sugar levels.
Diet Quality Is The Key To Weight Loss
In our pursuit of a deeper understanding of how we can quantify diet quality and satiety, my team and I spent four years analysing thousands of recipes from a range of popular diet plans.
Sadly, we found that the vast majority of them were significantly deficient in the essential vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that we all need!
This study from Cornell University analysed a range of meal plans provided by popular diets. The researchers found that ALL diet plans provided a pitiful amount of the essential vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids when you followed their plan.
They would leave you with nutritional deficiencies if you ate enough to maintain weight, let alone if you managed to eat smaller quantities of their recommended foods.
It doesn’t matter which named diet you follow. Eventually, your cravings for the nutrients you need will lead you to self-sabotage and undermine all your hard work if you are not getting the essential micronutrients that your body needs.
So, what’s the solution?
If you want to lose weight successfully with fewer cravings and less hunger, you need to find a way to pack more of the essential nutrients into every calorie of food you eat.
So everything you just learned has been awesome, right?
Has it changed the way you think about weight loss?
Now you know the TRUTH that…
Eating more (of the right stuff) is the key to losing excess body fat. Once you prioritise the foods and meals that provide the nutrients you need, you no longer have to focus on restriction and continually struggle with your appetite.
Managing the insulin load of your diet is critical to stabilising your blood sugars. However, merely going low carb and giving fat a free pass can lead you to a nutrient-poor low satiety diet that may cause you to gain fat and increase your insulin resistance.
Optimising your diet quality by ensuring you get all the micronutrients you need is the key to weight loss. Once you give your body the nutrients it needs, you will feel more energised and less hungry. It’s as if you’re sending a message to your body that there is plenty of good food available so it no longer needs to prepare for a famine and can let go of the excess fat stores.
Do you want my help to implement all of this and make it super easy for you to start getting results RIGHT NOW?
