If you downloaded the Food Diary I mentioned in my last article and you filled it out, by now you should have a list of foods recorded in your food diary that you ate over the past seven days.
And if you are like most people, the foods that you’ve recorded in your diary are most likely the MAJOR causes of Stubborn fat around your body.
If your food diary contain foods like the below:
1. Pounded Yam
6. Bread (Agege & Sliced)
7. Excess Palm Oil based soup/stew
9. Soft Drinks
12. Flour Snacks from eateries (e.g. Meat pie)
13. Canned Foods & Bottled Drinks
The above foods are the REAL reason why we now grow fat, have big tummy, grow love handles and get “Christian mother arms” and have a huge waist line.
Truth be told, our Nigerian foods (listed above) are EXTREMELY fatty. This is because they contain simple-to-digest, basic sugars that has little real value for your body.
ANd that is why they are referred to as “simple Carbohydrates”.
We’ve been made to believe that eating fats or food that contains fat are responsible for making us fat.
This is the BIGGEST lie that has EVER been told to Man kind. Infact, this Lie has caused a lot of people to get fatter and even sicker.
But today, I’m here to tell you the truth.
The SHOCKING truth is that….
Carbohydrate is RESPONSIBLE for making us fat. To understand Why, let me open your eyes to the science of how fat is being stored in the body.
When you eat carbohydrates based food like Rice or Poundo Yam, your body automatically releases a hormone called “Insulin”.
This insulin controls the level of sugar (which is a by product of carbohydrate) in our body by transporting the excess sugar from the carbohydrate foods into the major organs like the muscles, liver and then STORE the rest of it (excess) in your body fat cells.
When it stores the excess sugar in your body fat cells, that is EXACTLY when you stat seeing the manifestation in the form of bulky thighs, big tummy,flabby arms and love handles etc.
The secretion of insulin in our body is a NATURAL process which is needed to prevent your body from shutting down.
If insulin is not produced to take care of the excess sugar (as a result of the carbohydrate Nigerian foods we eat) in the body, this sugar (which is toxic) can damage some vital organs & clog you arteries and block capillarries.
When you hear that someone has what is called “type 2 diabetes”, this is exactly what is happening to them.
It simply means that their body is no longer able to produce insulin that can handle the large amount of sugar in their blood stream.
In plain terms, they have what is called an elevated level of blod sugar. That is why the Yoruba’s call it “Ito Sugar”
Anyway, from a weight loss point of view….the more food you take from simple and refined carbohydrates, the more insulin your body produces.
…And the more insulin your body produces, the more fat your body will end up storing.
Therefore, to reduce the level of sugar in your body that is being stored in the fat cells by insulin, the best ACTION to take is to cut down and reduce the major fat INDUCING foods that I have listed below in your food diary.
Now you might say…..Olu….if I cut out all these fat inducing simple carbohydrate food, what will I eat?
My answer is….Don’t Panic!
I want you to know that Carbohydrate is very essential for energy production, long life and good health, But that only applies to “Good” carbohydrate.
While bad carbohydrates foods (like the 13 foods above) are referred to as simple carbs, the good carbohydrates are referred to as complex carbohydrates.
Research shows that good carbohydrates increases energy naturally, induce fat burning and improve long-term health.
Now that we’ve IDENTIFIED the bad carbohydrate, in my next email, I am going to reveal to you 17 Foods that RAPIDLY burns fat!
These 17 foods contain a list of Good carbohydrates that you can use to SUBSTITUTE the bad carbohydrates that already exist in your food diary.[divider_bar]Insert Your Text Here[/divider_bar]
