2029 Eating Keto Losing Weight Feeling Great
A bit over a month ago I decided to delete the major carbohydrate offenders from my diet -- the items that metabolize directly into sugar. Might as well be eating sugar cubes as to eat potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, not to mention desserts. I have gone from 185 pounds plus to 171 in about a month or so. Even more important, the acid reflux and bloating I suffered with for years is completely GONE. I am eating a few carbohydrates in the form of salad vegetables, but no more items that directly metabolize into sugar. I'm not just eating protein, but I'm also eating healthy fats. My energy levels remain consistent throughout the day. I am sleeping more soundly at night without waking up nearly as much throughout the night. During the day I seem more alert than I have in a long time. Carbohydrates become a slow poison when eaten in the massive quantities that sadly typifies the average Western diet. Just getting rid of the bloating and acid reflux alone is enough to make me NEVER go back to eating poisonous levels of carbohydrates. All I've really done is eliminate potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, junk food of any kind, and deserts. These are low nutrition foods that destroy the human body if eaten consistently over a period of decades. The average person (depending on size) has a gallon and a half of blood. In that gallon and a half of blood, the normal blood glucose level is about 5 grams, or one teaspoon or sugar cube. The average American is eating the equivalent of 31 teaspoons of sugar a day. Is it any wonder that America has become the land of obese type-two diabetics? How is eating the equivalent of 31 teaspoons of sugar a day defensible? The answer is, it is not defensible. Eating that much equivalent sugar a day is sheer madness.
I've had at least one person tell me that "Everyone will die of something." True enough. However, I don't want to die from type two diabetes complications -- they are extremely painful and unpleasant in the extreme. Type two diabetes complications include blindness, heart attacks, strokes, amputations, etc. just to name a few.
