Heart Disease, Obesity and Diabetes are among the fastest rising diseases in America. These illnesses are largely due to poor choices in diet, specifically choices of foods that have a high glycemic index. Most of the people with this problem gain their weight around the middle. The condition that leads to these chronic and often fatal conditions is called the metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, or syndrome X. Whatever it is called, it is not a good condition to have and can quite easily be corrected with change in dietary habits and choices.
In Dr. Arthur Agatston's book "The South Beach Diet", he quotes that somewhere around 47 million Americans (1 in 5) are prediabetic. And, that the percent of people with cardiovascular disease that are prediabetic is much larger. The rate of obesity and diabetes in our youth also continues to increase. The point is that we have gotten far to dependent on fast and convenient foods that hold no nutritional value, in fact they fuel the fire of system breakdown and degenerative diseases.
It pays to get educated on this subject, in securing a long healthy life and lower health care costs. It is not difficult to make the life style changes in diet if you are willing to buy fresh fruits and vegetables and lean protein. As a rule, the higher the fiber in the fruits and vegetables the lower the glycemic index. Avoid all low fiber, refined bread and any products that are simple sugars. The more simple carbohydrates you eat, the more your body has to correct itself against blood sugar, heart, and weight problems. These are just the few diseases that come from a high glycemic diet. Allergies, mental fatigue, depression, infection, constipation, general weakness and anxiety are some of the others.
what you eat really does make a difference in how you perform in life.
