My first guest, Dr. Jeffrey Anshel, OD, FAAO, (left) is a 1975 graduate from the Illinois College of Optometry.  He has written numerous articles and five books regarding nutritional influences on vision and computer vision concerns.

My second guest, Stefan Pinto, (before and after picture) lost 60 pounds, became a model and now helps others loose weight. He says: Your listeners may be interested in a fun, healthy and progressive “pound shedding” project that uses only Facebook and a camera phone. So far, over 28,000 photos of food have been submitted by participants. Called the C Diet® – (the C stands for choice), participants submit a photo of every, single meal they are about to consume and must indicate if their choice was based on convenience, calories, cost or a combination of all three. The project is supported by major supermarket brands which send the participant full product as an incentive to motivate them (a symbiotic gesture as the participants end up becoming customers of the brand. Like!). There are 20 brands supporting. If you think your listeners would be interested in knowing about the psychology behind the program, or just other information, I am happy to provide an interview. I used to be overweight; lost 60lbs and became a male model

Does a Low-Carb Vegan Diet Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease?

Friday, May 30th, 2014

logo1267406_md

Research published in the British Medical Journal Open concluded that in addition to weight loss, a specific low-carbohydrate vegan diet may reduce the risk of heart disease by 10 per cent over 10 years. If low-carb diets allow eating animal protein and fats they  may improve weight loss but raise cholesterol whereas diets high in vegetable proteins and oils may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering “bad cholesterol.” Researchers compared the Eco-Atkins diet, a low-carbohydrate vegan diet,  to a high-carbohydrate, low fat diet.  Researchers said “We designed a diet that combined both vegan and low-carbohydrate elements to get the weight loss and cholesterol-lowering benefits of both.”

Twenty three obese men and women completed the six month diet period. The subjects selected their own diet and could adjust it to their needs and preferences. They were given menu plans that outlined foods and amounts and alternatives for the foods listed. The food exchange list allowed the subjects to adapt the diet to their needs and facilitated adherence. Subjects were also encouraged to eat only 60% of their estimated daily caloric requirements-an amount that would maintain their current weight. The Eco-Atkins group aimed for a balance of 26% of their calories from carbohydrates, 31% from protein, and 43% from fat-primarily vegetable fat.  Results showed that the Eco-Atkins group reduced their cholesterol by 10% more  and also lost an average of four more pounds than the high carbohyrate group.

Use Alternatives to Reduce Type 2 Diabetes Risks

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

John LaGrace, National Awareness Director, DrugWatch.com was kind enough to provide the following guest blog written by his staff on alternatives to reduce Type 2 diabetes. I hope you enjoy it.

__________________________________________________________

Doctor Mark Hyman, author of the “The Blood Sugar Solution,” described diabetes as a foodborne illness. While the exact cause of diabetes isn’t well understood there is a recognizable link between fat buildup from unhealthy foods and the onset of the disease. The American Diabetes Association says that about 50 percent of men and 70 percent of women are obese when they are diagnosed.

This link between obesity and type 2 diabetes opens up the door to exciting possibilities for naturally fighting symptoms. Even if a person isn’t obese, adjusting their amount of exercise and beginning a healthy diet can drastically reduce symptoms. Doctors say that patients only need to lose 5 to 10 percent of their body weight to see an improvement.

The Look AHEAD study showed that people with type 2 diabetes benefit the most from natural treatments when they seek out the help of professionals like dieticians and personal trainers. Doctors should also be consulted before attempting to modify your exercise or diet to treat diabetes. With a combination of expert guidance you can develop a well-rounded and effective treatment plan. In the Look AHEAD study people with type 2 diabetes who received professional guidance were able to keep significant weight off consistently, while those who didn’t saw fewer results.

Medical studies show a combination of diet and exercise are the most effective natural treatments to reduce diabetes symptoms. Exercise helps sensitize the body to insulin, which lowers blood sugar. It also reduces harmful cholesterol, which reduces the risk of congestive heart failure.

Patients should begin their lifestyle changes progressively. After talking to a Doctor they can begin to make conservative changes in diet and exercise, and then see how their body reacts. By pacing themselves people avoid potentially over stressing their body, or lowering their blood sugar too rapidly. As the body adjusts to a new health routine people can gradually increase the aggressiveness of their natural treatment.

The health risks of congestive heart failure and stroke are serious side effects associated with diabetes medications are serious and should be addressed. In fact, the FDA has issued a black-box warning on type 2 diabetes medication, Actos, because of its link with congestive heart failure. This has resulted in many users filing an Actos lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Having type 2 diabetes may make changing diet and regular exercise more difficult, but with enough discipline people may actually be able to beat the disease. One British study showed that with dramatic lifestyle intervention type 2 diabetes can actually be reversed in some patients.

The American Diabetes Association says that people can have an impact on their symptoms by starting to exercise 30 minutes a day for five days a week. Exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous either. Working around the house or walking is sufficient to improve heart health and reduce the risk of diabetes related symptoms. Be sure to warm up before jumping into a fitness routine, and always consult your doctor about beginning natural treatment.
