If you’ve been battling your weight, you’re not alone. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than one-third of U.S. adults have obesity, defined as having a body mass index of 30 or higher. Obesity is a major risk factor and, in many cases, a precursor to diabetes. The term diabesity is now being used to show the close association between these two diseases.
Obesity and Diabetes Equals Diabesity: A Worldwide Epidemic
Obesity has been a growing problem for a long time, and not just in America. The World Health Organization reports that the worldwide obesity rate has almost tripled since 1975, which creates huge healthcare problems.
Health Risks of Obesity
Obesity increases your risk for many serious conditions and diseases, including:
- Cardiovascular disease
- High blood pressure
- Sleep apnea
- Certain types of cancer
- Type 2 diabetes
It is the biggest risk factor for type 2 diabetes, which in turn, also puts you at greater risk for more serious diseases.
Why Haven’t Warnings Changed the Obesity, Diabetes and Diabesity Rate?
Despite dire warnings from experts about the obesity, diabetes, and diabesity epidemic – and the serious health problems they would cause – it didn’t keep the rates from increasing.
But it wasn’t from lack of trying.
Statistics show 95.4 percent of diets fail. An estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year, and Americans spend $33 billion each year on weight loss products. Yet, nearly two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese.
It’s safe to say these people are frustrated at not being able to lose weight. After all, experts tell them it’s their fault. They and the media and friends and maybe even strangers tell them:
- They lack willpower
- They’re lazy
- They’re gluttons
- It’s their fault
If they just hadn’t started eating again…as IF!!! Does any of this sound familiar? Well, listen up.
YOU ARE NOT TO BLAME.
It is not your fault. You’ve been given bad information from the diet and fitness industry, out to make a buck. Whether through ignorance or greed – mostly greed – they are invested in your obesity. If you get diabetes and diabesity, even better (although this may never have actually crossed their minds) because you’ll really be desperate to lose weight then. You’ll really need their services!
It is to their benefit to keep you heavy. If you permanently lose weight, they lose money. Think about it. And they did it by convincing you that you need to have a certain deficit of calories in order to lose weight, and you do that by eating a certain number of calories a day – and it doesn’t matter where the calories come from.
They Got it Wrong About Obesity and Diabetes and Diabesity
Information about calories, and watching calories in relation to weight maintenance or loss, has been around since at least the early 1900s. The current calorie deficit mantra we live by has been around since the 1960s. It hasn’t changed since then. The problem is, it is wrong, and it has resulted in our diabesity epidemic.
Defining a Deadly Epidemic: Diabetes and Diabesity
It is not an accident that the rates of type 2 diabetes, the most common type, have risen with the rates of obesity. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 90 percent of those who are obese will develop type 2 diabetes, and statistics show that the majority of those with diabetes are overweight or obese.
Make no mistake – obesity, diabetes, and diabesity are linked and will ultimately kill you, but not before they destroy your body a little bit at a time. Meanwhile, experts are still shaking their heads and wringing their hands, at a loss as to what to do about this deadly epidemic.
Solving the Obesity and Diabesity Problem
Solving the obesity problem will go a long way in reversing type 2 diabetes and diabesity because they share the same cause. This problem has been solved, but the mainstream media isn’t yet reporting it. And as long as the diet industry stands to lose money, it’s a good bet that they won’t be investigating it.
It’s time to bring some SANEity to this issue.
It’s their way or the SANE way.
Thousands of studies have shown that the calorie deficit theory of weight loss is woefully incomplete, to say the least. There’s so much more to it than that. These studies have shown that we don’t have to count calories. Our bodies are perfectly capable of counting and regulating our calories for us while we concentrate on other things.
Our body already regulates our blood flow, our respiration and so much more. It is designed to regulate our calories as well, but there is a clog in our hormonal system preventing it from doing this job.
Once that clog is removed, your body will regulate your calories, helping you have the metabolism of a naturally thin person.
The science is right there in black-and-white – or these days, whatever color you want to see on your computer screen – but there is a problem. Most people prefer their inSANE belief system, probably because it’s more comfortable than to learn a different way.
First Step in Reversing Diabetes and Diabesity? The Truth!
The first step to SANEity and reversing diabetes and diabesity is to help people quickly and permanently lose weight. But before that can happen, many ingrained eating and dieting myths have to be exposed.
Myths Experts Shove Down your Throat – and the Truth!
We have all been raised on lies about food, diet, weight loss and exercise. Society is paying for these lies in what could be the biggest worldwide epidemic in history: diabesity.
Dieters like you have paid for their lies with years of frustrated yo-yo dieting. It’s well past time to put an end to the inSANE lies you’ve been told. Let’s bring some SANEity to an issue that has caused you and so many people so much pain.
Myth #1: Weight gain is my fault. I’m not trying hard enough, or I lack willpower.
Fact: Obesity is a disease. It is not your fault. It is a dysfunction of your metabolic system that you can correct by eating high quality, SANE foods.
SANE Tip: As a general rule, eat foods as close to their natural state as possible. That means stay away from processed and packaged foods, starches, high-fructose fruits, most dairy and foods and beverages with sugar added.
Myth #2: Weight gain comes from eating too many calories.
Fact: Though genetics increase your risk for obesity, it is also heavily influenced by your dietary choices. Eating a steady diet of poor quality foods, such as processed foods and starches, clogs your hormonal system. This prevents your hormones from knowing how much fat you need, and so they send incorrect messages to your metabolism.
SANE Tip: Eat at least 10 servings of non-starchy vegetables a day. Dark green, leafy vegetables, such as kale and spinach, are your best choices. Three to six servings per day of nutrient-dense protein, such as salmon, and three to six servings per day of whole-food fats, such as chia seeds, should be a part of every SANE meal. It will keep you so full and satisfied, you won’t crave the bad stuff. Try it and you’ll lose weight effortlessly.
Myth # 3: Calories work the same way in my body, and it doesn’t matter from what food it comes.
Fact: Research has shown that it’s not the quantity, but the quality of calories that matter to the body. High-quality foods, such as non-starchy vegetables, fire up your metabolism, unclog your hormones and make your body burn fat like a naturally thin person.
SANE Tip: If you really want to burn fat, try to eat some of these superfoods regularly: Avocado; Eggs; Flax seeds; Salmon; Sardines.
Myth # 4: I must concentrate on calorie reduction to lose weight.
Fact: Lowering your setpoint weight is the key to weight loss. Your body fat is controlled by your setpoint and metabolism, which is controlled by your hormones. Your hormones are controlled by the quality of the foods you eat and other lifestyle factors. Eating a SANEr, high-quality diet will heal your body and hormones. Your body will then naturally adjust the calorie burn to make you steadily lose weight and keep it off.
Calories are important, but you do not have to count them. Your body is supposed to regulate them, and that’s what yours will finally start doing for you once it is healed of years and years of poor quality foods and yo-yo dieting.
SANE Tip: Though eating SANEly is important, it is also crucial that you stay well-hydrated. Drinking enough water helps you burn fat, and it is also a great appetite suppressant. Drink several cups of water a day; you can also have green or black tea without sugar. By the way…stay away from sugary beverages. Sugar doesn’t provide proper hydration, and it causes inflammation in the body.
Myth #5: I can consume sugary food and drinks as long as I stay within my calorie limit.
Fact: If you consume sugar, chances are good you won’t stay within your calorie limit. Studies have shown sugar consumption shuts off leptin, a hormone that controls satiety. (It tells you when to stop eating.) Also, researchers have found that high fructose corn syrup, found in soft drinks, baked goods, and other packaged goods, causes more weight gain than table sugar. This actually causes fat gain in the stomach region. Finally, sugar raises your setpoint even if it is within your calorie limit.
SANE Tip: If you miss the sweet taste of sugar, you might want to consider a few natural sugar substitutes that taste great and do not raise your setpoint. Stevia, Luo Han Guo, Erythritol, and Xylitol. Be sure to look for them in their pure form in your grocery store.
Myth # 6: I must exercise more to lose fat.
Fact: Exercising more has not been shown to cause long-term fat loss. Of course, hitting the gym several times a week will help you lose weight in the short term, but that’s really just another way of putting your body in starvation mode. It can raise your setpoint weight. In addition, our bodies are always looking for balance, so after your workout, you’ll likely be hungry, which may make you grab the first thing in sight. Unless you’re really disciplined, the first thing in sight might be a Twinkie.
SANE Tip: Try eccentric exercises. These are short, safe, intense exercises that don’t make you hungry. Because they work muscle fibers that conventional exercises rarely if ever touch, they help lower your setpoint and promote long-term fat loss. Best of all, you only need to do these exercises 10-20 minutes a week. Also, be sure to be active in other ways. Physical activity is important for your health; you just don’t need to do conventional exercise to lose fat.
Myth # 7: Diet and exercise are all that matters in losing weight.
Fact: Though eating a SANE diet and performing once-weekly eccentric exercises are a necessary tool for long-term fat loss, there are other factors that affect your setpoint. For instance, sleep is also important for weight loss. Studies have shown that those who don’t get enough sleep have elevated levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that leads to accumulations of fat in the stomach.
SANE Tip: Try to get at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep per night.
There are a lot of myths when it comes to losing fat, but only one solution – the SANE Solution.
