Why you’re overweight

Our bodies are amazing (yes, yours too!). In order to survive before supermarkets, we had to be able to store energy to get us through lean times, we store this energy as adipose fat tissue. If you put more energy into your body than it needs, it stores it, for (potential) later use. When you put in less than it needs, it uses the stored energy. The more energy you have stored, the more overweight you are. The trick is to get your body to use the stored energy, which can only be done if you give it less energy than it needs, consistently. read more

Kids and The Low-Carb Lifestyle

Some pediatricians have actually been prescribing a low-carb diet for a choose group of children for years, and exactly what they have seen is very upsetting. The ketogenic diet was developed more than 80 years earlier in order to manage seizures that did not respond to the anticonvulsant medications that were available then. There are now lots of medications that help to manage seizures but the ketogenic diet is still utilized. The bright side is that it does stop or decrease the frequency of seizures. The bad news is that it has some unhealthy effects on the heart.
The ketogenic diet is not identical to the Atkins diet. Although it consists of hardly any carbohydrate it likewise has little protein, and 90 percent of calories come from fat. As you might imagine, keeping a child on this extremely unpalatable diet is every hard, and numerous parents merely quit when faced with temper tantrums and food-stealing.
In a research study done at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, children on a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet developed marked increases of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, all of which are risk elements for coronary artery illness. These results persisted for a minimum of 24 months. Children on a ketogenic diet are also at threat of kidney stones, which are normally unusual throughout youth.
There’s a lot of proof that low blood sugar level levels, an unavoidable effect of a low-carbohydrate diet, produce memory and mood issues, irritability and aggressive behavior. Those who live with diabetic patients are aware that an overdose of insulin causes a serious drop in blood sugar that can cause seizures or death. It does not take any fantastic leap of logic to conclude that a diet that results in frequent low blood sugar level levels isn’t good for the brain. For the developing brain of a child, even an adolescent, it might lead to specific catastrophe and social catastrophe.
There’s no single option to youth obesity
What a child eats is just one factor in exactly what is plainly an epidemic of childhood obesity. At any age, weight gain comes from utilizing too couple of calories as well as eating a lot of. Computer games, television watching, lack of athletics classes, reliance on Mom for transport, interfered with family conditions and worry of criminal offense in city communities are just a few of the reasons exercise has actually taken a nosedive amongst children in the previous generation, a period throughout which type 2 diabetes in kids has increased tenfold. Mindful analysis reveals that almost all the fat gain of modern kids is due to their inactive practices, not to their eating habits.
Diabetes will quickly be an excruciating burden
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report that must have stunned the actuaries of medical insurance companies. Of children born in the year 2000, one-third will develop type 2 diabetes as adults. For African-American and Hispanic females that number will be around 50 percent.
Who will spend for the health care expenses of one-third of our population, a group that will be not able to support themselves because of cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, amputation of limbs and blindness? The very fact that contemporary medicine has the ability to lengthen the lives of these sufferers just contributes to the massive cost of extra decades of survival. Directors of kidney dialysis centers currently agree that they are behind in the capability to deal with the present population of diabetics whose kidneys have been destroyed. Yet, this is where our children are headed, as even 6-year-olds are now being diagnosed with the disease.
Healthy nutrition in a free fall
French french fries are veggies in just the loosest possible usage of the word, however they make up 25 percent of the typical child’s veggie consumption. The worth of a diet that is high in vegetables and fruits can not be overestimated. Cardiovascular disease and cancer are much less typical face to faces with a high consumption of these foods, but on any offered day in the United States, 40 percent of kids have actually not eaten a single vegetable. In actual surveys of children’s consuming practices, no fruit or vegetable– even French french fries– makes it to the leading ten.
High-fructose corn syrup is the only sweetener of soft drinks in the United States. It makes up more than 15 percent of the calorie consumption of the average kid; it is more than double that amongst many teenagers. More than just adding to a currently extreme calorie consumption, fructose bypasses the typical digestive procedures and results in formation of heart-damaging chemicals and contributes to the complications of diabetes.
This is only a sample of the concerns that I have actually discussed in my book The Keto Lifestyle (www.keto4energy.com/KetoBook). read more

Keto Raspberry Ice Cream

Who doesn’t love ice cream? True, there are a number of keto friendly frozen treats that are now available at the grocery store, but this recipe is too simple and too delicious to pass up.

Raspberry Ice Cream

In lieu of sugar, I used allulose. I like it because it has zero GI and zero aftertaste. You may also use erythritol. If you want it sweeter, I suggest adding about 8-10 drops of liquid stevia. I didn’t find it necessary, to be honest. Fromage blanc is the French yogurt – it is a type of soft cheese made from cow’s milk with a creamy sour taste. I use it because I love it but, in a bind, you can use Greek yogurt. Mascarpone is another substitute option. read more

Smothered Portobello Mushroom Fries

These mushroom fries are first dipped in an egg mix, followed by a light coat of seasoned Parmesan cheese and baked just to the point of tender. Be careful not to over cook them.
