Beating The Mood Food High

July 3, 2008

Get rid of your sweet tooth by not letting yourself get high from your food. Many people have heard the phrase “mood food” and that is the experience of getting high from your food. The major problem is getting fat while getting high from eating junk.

Dopamine regulates appetite and reinforces behavior and opiates triggers cravings and relieves pain. When you eat to release enough dopamine to feel it you are reinfocing bad habits. Cocaine & cristal meth are so addictive because of their effects on dopamine. Opioids are what many addictive pain medications trigger. If you get yourself into the downward spiral of the mood food trap you could become obese before you really try to do anything about it.

Do you want to be part of the 2/3 of Americans that are already too fat? Eat to get good nutrition, not to get high.

“Lab experiments on rats showed the cycle of sugar deprivation and indulgence sensitized both the dopamine (which regulates appetite) and opioid (which triggers cravings) receptors in the rodents’ brains.”

Curcumin Offer Protection Against Diabetes

July 3, 2008

“Inflammation is believed to play a role in the onset of diabetes type 2 as well as obesity. The researchers suggest that curcumin helps prevent diabetes by reducing the inflammation that occurs in obesity. By suppressing the number and activity of inflammatory cytokines produced by immune cells in fatty tissue, which can damage the heart and insulin-producing pancreatic islands as well as increase muscle and liver insulin resistance, curcumin may help reduce some of obesity’s adverse effects.”

24 Million Americans have Diabetes

June 26, 2008

24 million Americans have Diabetes and another 57 million have pre-diabetes for a total of 81 million Americans with blood sugar problems. Over 1/4 of Americans have blood sugar problems while 2/3 of Americans are overweight.

Since the last survey 2 years ago the amount of people effected by blood sugar problems has increased by 3 million. Some of that increase can be accounted by better awareness because awareness has increased by 5 %.

Over 25 % of Americans over 60 years of age have Diabetes. When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked at race; the closer the race is toward poverty the higher the rate of diabetes.

The general trend for a healthy America looks bleak. We are getting fatter while staying hooked on sugar. The Atkins Diet was our Cold-Turkey desperate try to break our addiction to sugar. America is still looking for the silver bullet. Americans are gaining more weight while they satisfy their short-term desires while throwing away sound nutritional advice about long-term quality of life.
