Ever notice how people seem to get fatter with age and that people also become Diabetic after a certain age? If this happens in your family it’s kind of expected that you will follow the same fate. Sadly, this is an entirely volunteer situation. What am I saying? I am saying that it is incorrect to assume that as you get older you just naturally get fatter and sicker. (That should be welcome news!)
Researchers have been mentioning for a couple decades now that they consistently find that lifestyles are at the center of most chronic diseases such as heart disease, hypertension, Diabetes type 2, stroke, elevated blood sugar, elevated blood lipids (cholesterol, triglycerides, uric acid, abnormal HDL/LDL levels, etc.). They refer to this in their research conclusions, often under the title “Metabolic Syndrome.”
Go ahead, if you like to do research, and Google “Metabolic Syndrome” and you will see exactly what I am talking about. It works like this:
- First you get overweight, then become fatter.
- Your limited fat stores get full and fat then is stored in your muscles.
- Muscle can no longer efficiently use glucose exclusively for energy.
- Insulin resistance advances into Diabetes type 2.
- MDs manage the blood sugar and not the lifestyle so the problem just gets worse and people suffer a sick and early death.
Now, on the other hand, when someone says: “Gee that’s a lousy way to look to the future. I think I will change something around.” … guess what happens? They get healthier, reverse their Diabetes or avoid it all together; live healthier lives for an additional 20 years. They save a lot money not going to doctors and buying maintenance medications; take more vacations and see the world instead of the inside of a hospital room; except to visit one of their friends who refuses to get their life together before it’s too late. Food for thought.
Yours in Health,
