The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) published a study that shows the increased consumption of red meat increases the risk of diabetes. The study was conducted by the American Medical Association. Decreasing red meat intake lowered weight gain and lowered the risk of diabetes. It’s not just sugar that raises your risk of diabetes! Also remember the so called “White Meat” is about 85% the same fat as red meat. Eating a diet of increased white meat may not be the solution either.

We always knew eating sugary foods leads to obesity. Now more scientific evidence is available on how bad this really is. WebMD says yes eating more sugar in our diets leads to weight gain but the converse is also true; eating less sugar in our diets will lead to weight loss. I have spoken about how sugar acts as an epigenetic trigger. It causes several triggers in our bodies. One is it causes the brain to stop giving us hunger pangs. As sugar levels rise we typically have eaten our food. As sugar levels drop the brain causes us to feel pangs in our stomach telling us it’s time to eat. Sugar also acts to store excess food as fat. Lack of sugar causes excess foods to be expelled. Watch your sugars, they taste sweet but they are pure evil! Many people think fruits have sugar and should also be avoided. Fruit juices should be avoided but whole fruits are great for us. The fiber in fruit traps the sugars and releases them slowly in our bodies. This slow release is healthy. A fast dump of sugar (spike) cause all sorts of health related problems. Sweets will spike your sugars. Eat well.
