Carbohydrates – A Quick Guide

First, allow me to give you a simple method of determining if what you are eating is a carbohydrate or not. Simply ask one question…

Did it have a mother?

If the answer is “yes” then it is probably a protein. If the answer is “no” then it is probably a carbohydrate. By this definition then meat, eggs, milk (for our argument we will say it “came from” a mother) are all proteins. Lettuce, apples, oranges, grains carrots, etc. all do NOT have a mother and therefore are considered a carbohydrate.

What is the Glycemic Index?

As you already know, not all carbohydrates are created equal. In fact, some carbohydrates can help you to lose fat while others will make it very easy for you to pack on the pounds. It does not take a rocket scientist to know that there is a difference between a head of lettuce and a hamburger bun. Both are carbohydrates but they are clearly in different classes. The Glycimic Index (GI) is a method of ranking carbohydrates by looking at how each food impacts the blood sugar…

What Kevin Trudeau “Doesn’t Want You to Know”

In the book “The Weight Loss Cure ‘They’ Don’t Want You To Know About”, infomercial guru Kevin Trudeau talks about the “suppressed weight loss breakthrough” that was discovered in the 1960s. This treatment uses a hormone produced by the placenta during the development of the fetus. Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin, triggers the sex glands of the fetus to develop. He talks about Dr. Simeons, a doctor in Rome in the 60’s who found that hCG could also help people who are on very low calorie diets lose more fat with less symptoms such as hunger, headache, etc.
Kevin Treudeau gives testimonial to the process when he describes how he lost 50 pounds in 60 days. He then goes on to guarantee a weight loss of 30 pounds in 30 days. Quite a guarantee, although one that you will see in practically every infomercial dedicated to weight loss. When you look into the hCG treatment of obesity you find some pretty disturbing facts that Kevin Treudeu “doesn’t want you to know about”…

How Much Do You Need To Exercise To Lose Weight?

A new study performed by the American College of Sports Medicine pooled all of the data to date on exercise and weight loss to determine their new guidelines. According to Melinda Manore, one of the lead researchers, their research determined that a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise was needed each week just to maintain current weight. This amounts to just 20 minutes of moderate activity each day if you exercise 7 days a week. Their findings also determine that a lifestyle of diet and exercise amounting to 250 minutes per week…

Green Tea Enhances Abdominal and Total Fat Loss In Moderate Exercisers

A recent study determined that green tea can significantly increase the amount of fat that is burned in people who are moderately active (180 minutes of activity per week). In this study, 107 overweight subjects were given either green tea or a placebo containing an identical amount of caffeine only. The group who was given the green tea enjoyed more weight loss…

Agave Nectar – Is It a Good Alternative to Sugar?

Agave is a plant that grows in southern Mexico, South America and the southwestern states of the United States. The sap of the Agave contains a high concentration of carbohydrates which makes it a potential alternative sweetener to plain table sugar. Agave syrup or nectar can be up to three times as sweet as sugar and is touted as a low glycemic sweetener. But is it a suitable sweetener for those who want to lose weight?
