Improving Your Wellbeing; The Dangers of Grains and Sugars

If you made no other adjustments to your diet but eliminating or vastly reducing grains and sugars it is likely your health would rapidly improve and within days you would start losing weight.

Within weeks you would have a very noticeable improvement in both areas.

Within months, in addition to the dramatic health and weight improvement, you will also be experiencing a tremendous increase in your energy, mental acuity, and positive focus.

Continue with the program beyond that and you will significantly extend the amount of time you spend on this planet.

No matter what your health condition or metabolic type, you are strongly advised to eliminate or restrict your grain and sugar intake, particularly processed grains and sugars.

Eliminating grains is especially necessary for those who have Protein Metabolic Types.

Carbohydrates and Mixed Types can be obtained by consuming a limited number of grains.

In all cases, any grains you consume should be whole grains (95% of the grains consumed are processed, which strips them of what limited nutritional value they do have).

Those with celiac disease and gluten sensitivities have an obvious additional need to avoid grains, particularly gluten which is found in wheat, spelt, rye, barley, and oats.

For those with diabetes and other signs of elevated insulin such as obesity, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, it is crucial to eliminate grains and sugars.

Avoiding grains and sugars has been popularized by the recent low-carbohydrate dieting rage.

Although low-carb dieting is effective for weight loss, the low-carb approach misses the fact that you need carbohydrates in your diet, to varying levels depending on your metabolic type.

Grains and sugars should be eliminated or severely restricted, and the processed forms of both in particular.

There are good carbohydrates that should compose most of your carbohydrate intake, and they are found mostly in high-fiber vegetables that grow above the ground.

Your body prefers these complex carbohydrates because they slow the release of simple carbohydrates like glucose and decrease your insulin levels.

Insulin is the fat-building hormone in the body; therefore, increases in insulin cause weight gain.

On the other hand, there are “troublesome” carbohydrates that you need to reduce or eliminate from your diet, and they are found in grains, sugars, and sugary foods, as well as starchy vegetables like potatoes.

These carbohydrates will increase your insulin levels and tend to promote weight gain and illness.

With that important point in mind, let’s take a look at some basic human physiology so you can begin to understand why grains and sugars should be avoided.
