A low glycemic index diet is one of the best ways to look after your health, and lose excess weight effectively and naturally.
High GI (70-100) Carbohydrates which break down quickly during digestion, releasing blood sugar rapidly into the bloodstream – causing marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels.
Medium GI (56-69) Carbohydrates which break down moderately during digestion, releasing blood sugar moderately into the bloodstream. Low GI (0-55) Carbohydrates which break down slowly during digestion, releasing blood sugar gradually into the bloodstream – keeping blood sugar levels steady … and so provide you with the best health benefits! When referring to any GI Food List, please remember that the numbers aren’t absolute and should serve as a guide only.

A recent study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that weight loss results from low carb and low fat diets were similar after one year.
National physical activity experts report that workers today are burning an average of 120 to 140 fewer calories a day than workers in the 1960s. Your body can absorb the nutrients in the food more readily, since it is broken down better. A British study shows taking a short, brisk walk can reduce the amount of snacking you do at work. February is Heart Health Month, which makes it a great time for individuals to evaluate their lifestyle and how it may be contributing to or harming their heart’s wellbeing. We Minnesotans are used to the snow and cold of winter, but this season has seemed especially brutal, hasn't it? The below-zero windchills and heavy snow make it feel easier to stay indoors and eat at our desk than to go out or go home for lunch. Dieting can be frustrating when the scale is not showing a decrease in pounds or the weight is not staying off. Here's another great OPTIFAST success story!In her late twenties, Elizabeth began taking a new medication which caused her to rapidly gain weight.

You may have heard in the news recently that the American Medical Association designated obesity as a disease. Patients and friends have been telling me about using these "milks" for their morning shakes. Are you noshing at lunch in front of your computer?  It is interesting to note that, people who eat lunch at in front of a computer are likely to eat more within 30 minutes vs. Join us this Saturday to discuss the different strategies about what to do in those tough scenarios like eating out whether you are on full fast or modified fast.

Be mindful, though, that eating your lunch at your desk can have negative consequences for your diet.When we eat at our desks, we are often distracted by email, phone calls and other interruptions. They claim this forces the body to use its fat reserves for fuel instead of the carbohydrates quickly available from a pre-workout meal or snack. Focus instead on getting a much more manageable 30 minutes of exercise, five times per week.
The problem is that we consume most of our protein at dinner time when we should be eating the most protein during breakfast to start off our day. The study included a control group, a group of subjects who ate three high-protein meals each day, and a third group who ate high-protein meals six times a day.


We have all been in that situation where we have been invited out to go celebrate a birthday party, anniversary, you name it.
8, 2012 I had a live blood microscopy with Rick Panson, a microbiologist, at the Live-Live store in NYC. The glycemic index ranks the foods from 0–100 according to the speed at which they effect your blood sugar levels in the 2 or 3 hours after eating. Use the Glycemic Index as just one of the many tools you have available to improve your control. But it’s still completely possible to enjoy yourself at the party, without going overboard on empty calories.
Often we consume our meals quickly without thinking about them, enjoying them or even really tasting them. After years of being confined to a wheelchair due to her weight, she was able to reclaim her life. The review found that consuming dairy products was related to increased insulin production, a healthier body weight and decreased body fat. The carbohydrate is partly from lactose (milk sugar), which is digested differently than sucrose. In the glycemic index list of foods, the foods with a glycemic index value below 55 are low GI foods, foods ranking 55–70 are moderate GI foods, and foods with a GI value 70–100 are high GI foods. Here are some of the best (and worst) gift ideas for your loved ones working towards a healthier lifestyle. These include irregular sleep patterns and unhealthful diets in addition to extended periods of inactivity. He spent an hour going over what he saw in my blood as well as giving me pointers that would move me into a greater state of health. A study in an obesity clinic examined the relationship between knowledge of appropriate foods and beverages needed for weight loss and the actual diet of patients seeking obesity treatment.
The study found that although the patients recognized what an appropriate diet plan included, they did not consume an appropriate diet for weight loss. It is one thing to have lab work and testing, and quite another to witness firsthand what is transpiring in your blood.
Treatment approaches should include tools that help patients implement their nutrition knowledge.
At the bottom of the page are images that various people suffering with Morgellons graciously contributed to this site.A note on the photos. Rick provided me with photos for this page and I've filled in some of the gaps with screen grabs taken from the video that was taping our session.Nov. There are several stages of microorganisms? here which include yeast, bacteria and fibrin, fungus and mold. In the background are 'shadow cells' which were healthy red blood cells that 'popped' due to the loss of their phospolipid membranes. This can occur from an acid producing diet, and poor assimilation of nutrients.Rick's comments "Healthy blood cells will be perfectly round, nice and dark with a glowing halo around them. Usually, if they have enough moisture inside them they are fully round because there is more pressure inside the cell then outside.""These 'shadow' or ghost cells were once perfectly healthy cells, you can see by their shape and color that they were—and they've now disappeared into the background. Every cell in the body has a double membrane of fat made up of phospholipids, a two layer membrane. The acids can disentegrate the cell membrane as well as when your body ferments sugar, alcohol is the byproduct, and alcohol can easily melt the cell membrane.""Whatever is happening in the blood cells is happening to the rest of the body. Clotted mass of blood cells due to changes in the cells polarity, loss of natural negative electrical charge.
When there are this many cells and this little water, we are looking at the hydration level of the body. These nets act as a defense mechanism for the bacteria so that the white blood cells can't get to them.
There is no doubt that that is not part of normal healthy blood, and it's way bigger then what I think could survive in your cardiovascular system without being filtered out by your filter organs. That's why I don't think it's a fiber, per se, because it's so big compared to everything else. From a biology point of view, my best guess is that it would be a contaminent that has nothing to do with you. The red blood cells are fermenting as the yeast eats the cell itself.Above: Neutrophils You go guys! The other arrow is free-floating yeast, and you can see there is quite a bit of it in the blood. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is the most important and most effective alkalizer your body makes to try and keep alkaline balance. This is not the greatest water filter but what it does is alkaline the water, so instead of drinking water that is pH 5 or 6, one is drinking water with a pH of 8-10 giving the body a running start on staying alkaline. The benefits of this water are it's antioxidant properties which nullify free radical scavengers, plus the extra oxygen in the water is supposed to give energy and boost alertness and memory.Candida detox Next on the plate is to tackle the candida with capyrilic acid and olive leaf extract (for about 2 months). I'm just going to take the recommended dosages on the bottles adding in one teaspoon of l-glutamine powder per day. The glutamine assists in strengthening the gut wall and helps patch any holes left by the yeast (which could lead to leaky gut syndrome and the problems it leads to, such as food allergies and parasites) Respiration "The biggest acid you make everyday is carbonic acid. Every cell in your body is producing carbon dioxide from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head that is also surrounded by water and the carbon dioxide plus water makes carbonic acid, that's a very simple thing to keep in mind. By looking for acid based balance the amount of acid produced per day must be equal to the amount excreted or nutralized per day. The thing that is happening is, if your body can't neutralize or eliminate the acid you stay at that level, you can't go beyond that level of health.


You are taking the chest cavity, ribs and the lungs and trying to get them to be fantastic. Do 10 deep breaths a day 3x's a day (with long exhalation), in one month you are going to have a respiratory function that is 10%-15% better then you have now. Which means 10%-15% more energy and 10-15% less fermentation because fermentation only takes place where there is no oxygen. It's the greatest tool you have and it's free."Alkalizing with baking soda "The methods of getting rid of acidity from the body are respiration, perspiration, defecation and urination.
Rick gave me a great little tool (from the vet) that allows me to carry the soda in my back pocket making it more convienient to take. This is problematic for those of us taking supplements upon rising which are not supposed to be taken with clay. However, I'm trying to fit it in somewhere along the line.Magnesium oxide also called Oxy-Mag (NOW makes it). The process of oxygenating the bowel breaks down and eliminates solidified waste lodged in the large and small intestines. Beware, if you take it (up to one teaspoon at night in water with the juice of 1-2 lemons), you must leave time the next morning to eliminate fully.
Rick says that eventually this watery stool will cease when the body is cleaned of accumulated waste. I try and do this once a week.Food During our session together I became increasingly confused about food.
All those veggies will eventually turn to sugar so they have to be balanced out with oils and proteins. I was told by Nancy that each meal should have a carb, oil and protein and have been following that for some time. Rick has said the same thing and suggested I start the day with a chia smoothie."The perfect breakfast would be 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, ground to be chia meal with 2 tablespoons of chlorophyl, (spirulina, chlorella or grass powders (greener grasses, alkavision greens). Ground flax seeds can be added." "Chlorophyll is very cleansing and is a blood builder and it has a molecular structure that looks almost identical to red blood cells. When you take the chia seed and the flax seeds which are 28% protein 40-50% omega 3 fatty acids, that's very little carbohydrate there. The greens are 100% carbohydrate and when you mix them together, now you have carbs that burn like paper and you've got fats and oils, with proteins that don't really burn. The fats and oils are like the charcoal—now you have a sustained burn going on and then you don't ferment the sugars because the coal, the fatty acids, are there. So that breakfast with the chia seeds or flax seeds, or both, and any of those chlorophyls you are using can be a very beneficial superfood breakfast. They time release and give it back to you so you have have nice long sustained energy with oils, proteins and carbs all day. You'd be surprised, you don't need a lot of food, what you need is the right food."Rick suggested the more chia seeds used, the less hungry one will be. In fact, chia seeds have the highest known whole-food source levels of Omega-3 acids, as measured by percent of weight.• ?Rich In Antioxidants. Chia is a great natural source of antioxidants, including chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, myricetin, quercetin and flavonols.• Full of Important Nutrients. Chia is an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and copper. About five percent of this fiber is soluble, which can help reduce cholesterol.•  Builds Endurance. Chia builds stamina and endurance because it steadily releases slow-burning glucose into the bloodstream.• ?Gluten-Free. Since essential amino acids are not produced by the body, it's important to get amino acids from nutrient-rich sources like chia seeds. Research suggests leucine may help regulate blood sugar levels and aid in muscle recovery after exercise.• ?Stays Fresh.
16, 2012 • 2nd Live blood microscopyI saw Rick for a second live blood analysis on November 16, 2012. No ghost cells, no rouleax or sticky blood, the red blood cells are fuller, look stronger and are hydrated.
Candida has been greatly reduced in just 2+ months.?The treatment of olive leaf extract, caprylic acid and l-glutamine powder as per his suggestion for candida is working. I began addressing it by taking one capsule of both the olive leaf and caprylic acid plus one heaping tsp. After I was sure I had no reactions to this, upped the dosage to 2 caps of each with one tsp. That is not to say that the Morgellons has been effected, we saw two fibers in the dried blood samples. There seemed to me to be more bacteria in the blood and the white blood cells although they are strong and were very active were not plentiful.
I attribute the lower level of white blood cell activity to the fact that I was more sedentary these past two months then normally due to a foot problem that kept me off it. Rick suggested that I do lymphatic drainage work using a brush or mitt, followed by getting on a rebounder to jumpstart the lymph moving. He feels that getting the lymphatics going will produce more white blood cells to remove the bacteria from the blood.The chia seeds in the morning are wonderful. Rick suggests way to activate more white blood cell activity by way of the lymphatic system.
