5 Effects of Good Nutrition

The effects of good nutrition on the body are as visible as the effects of bad nutrition on the body. The difference is that bad nutrition can destroy the body, while good nutrition only supports and builds up the body. Hence, the better goal in life is to maintain a lifestyle that promotes good nutrition. This will cause many positive effects, including the following 5 effects of good nutrition.

5 Effects of Good Nutrition:

1. Maintain normal body function

This includes better learning, proper balance and pH in the body tissues, to stabilize and regulate body systems like blood pressure, rebuild tissues, and maintain proper blood sugar levels

2. Maintain healthy weight

This includes proper blood pressures, less likely to allow diseases like Diabetes, heart malfunctions

3. Prevent disease

This includes prevention of cancer, tissue disease, parasitical invasions, bacterial infections

4. Pass along good start to future generations

Healthy babies, immune system, healthy pregnancy

5. Provide stress relief

Reduce side effects of drugs, boost immune system, maintain calm and coping abilities

If you can enjoy these 5 effects of good nutrition, you will be well on your way to a better, healthier body that is able to function properly.

One key to getting good nutrition regularly is to avoid excess. Balance food intake between the major groups, and eat appropriate amounts. You need a balance of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other nutrients. A multi vitamin may be helpful if you are not sure about your food intake but it is not a substitute for eating properly. Water is essential to body functioning, moving nutrients into cells, and handling waste disposal.

You can obtain and follow the standard daily food pyramid and recommended dietary allowances (RDAs) put out by the government. It is adjusted according to age because dietary needs change as a person ages.

This pyramid is composed of nutritional groups of: calories, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and includes lists of antioxidants and herbs that are beneficial to health.

Besides age, the body’s nutritional needs change with use of drugs, or disorders and diseases that affect the body’s ability to meet those needs, or interfere with absorption or intake of food nutrients.

There are more than the above 5 effects of good nutrition, but these go a long way to getting you started in a healthy lifestyle if you pay attention. By the way, if you cant pay attention, you may need better nutrition! Avoid excess sweets and highly refined food, because they can cause bacterial excesses that can even have a lethal result if left unchecked (Candida). By providing the proper fuel (food) to your body, you enable it to function at its optimum capacity, keeping you healthy, happy, and fit for years and years, with benefits extending even unto the next generation.

Sushi, Sake and more – Mail Today News

When Aamir Khan swallowed a fish in the movie Dil Chahta Hai, many Indians cringed at the sight. It was 2001 and not easy for the not-so-welltravelled to fathom that a few years down the line, fish in raw form would become an all-time favourite for food connoisseurs. Just how it was unthinkable that Japanese food would become an integral part of the Indian eating-out experience as it has become now.

Going out for a meal has come of age from the MSG-vinegar-laced chowmein to highend restaurants serving the best quality Japanese food. It’s not surprising that The Lodhi hotel in Delhi has recently brought on board Chef Noboro Ozeki, a Japanese chef of repute for its restaurant Elan. Ozeki, who brings to the table authentic delicacies from his country, says, I am a traditional Japanese chef and my food style is authentic and classic. The signature menu I have curated is rooted in the traditions and culture of Japan. Think seaweed salad, maguro, unagi shahimi, tuna tartar and more.

THE EVOLUTION

Earlier, keeping the authenticity of the food was a bit difficult since to source ingredients in India was a big task, says Rajesh Khanna, F&B head, The Metropolitan Hotel and Spa, which houses Sakura, one of the oldest Japanese restaurants in the city. Things have changed from then and how, with not just authentic Japanese dishes but an entire Japanese meal experience on offer. Today, with more and more people travelling around the world, the true authenticity of the cuisine has got its space in the market, says Avantika Sinha Bahl, owner, Kampai, a restaurant in Aerocity. The restaurant, that opened last year, is touted as a contemporary twist on Japanese cuisine’ and serves Japanese staples like black cod miso, tantan men ramen, maguro katsu maki roll, brie cheese tempura with miso fig dressing, pork belly marinated in honey soy jam, salmon & avacado tartare, lamb chops in miso butter and more. The idea behind Kampai is to increase awareness around Japanese cuisine which at the moment is one of the most trendy cuisines in town, adds Bahl. The Kylin group of restaurants which opened in 2005 were one of the pioneers of Japanese cuisine in the city. According to its MD Saurabh Khanijo, they were one of the first Oriental lounges to have maximum weightage on Japanese cuisine with bowls like Yaki soba and tempura udon bowls in addition to a long sushi menu. Initially there were only a few takers for this cuisine and only the welltravelled used to order. But now all these dishes are favourites of every diner who comes to Kylin restaurants.

SUSHI IS BAE

Let’s admit, the mention of Japanese food conjures up images of stunning sushi neatly presented on a platter. Sushi has arguably become one of the favourite dishes of Delhiites, served at almost every other restaurant. The evolution of these rolls of rice and fish has been interesting in India. Says Amit Chowdhury, executive chef of The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, Sushi has come of age with Indians. The Indian palate has become more adventurous, and has overcome the aversion to eating raw fish. As sashimi quality fishes are available on menus, Indians no longer need to wait to travel to exotic lands to relish them. The Indian gourmand now knows that sushi does not mean only maki rolls. They know that sushi basically means, vinegared rice served with various ingredients which can include seafood, vegetables and even fruits. Taj Palace’s famous Wasabi restaurant has played a crucial role in making Indians fall in love with Japanese cuisine.

A lot like AD Singh’s Guppy, a restaurant synonymous with excellent Japanese food. The first to introduce black rice sushia tasty and a healthier alternative, Guppy has a loyal fan following. Now many guests ask for their sushi to be made in black rice. We were also the first to introduce mango (which is more an Indian fruit) paired with tuna for non-vegetarians and avocado and cream cheese for vegetarians, says Chef Vikram Khatri, executive chef, Guppy. Adds Khanna of Sakura, Years back sushi was the rolls of rice and fish only. Now there are different types of sushi i.e. rolls, nigri, chirashi, California and fried. Over time, the style of eating sushi has also changed. Today nigri sushi is preferred more than a rolled sushi.

HEALTH QUOTIENT

According to Kylin’s Khanijo, Japan has maximum number of centenarian only because they eat healthy and their cooking styles like teppanyaki are the healthiest. With health food becoming the next big thing in the Indian culinary scene, Japanese seems to be a delicious alternative to health food. Says chef Ozeki, An increasing number of Indians are accepting Japanese cuisine as it matches their new emerging dietary requirements and evolving tastes. Japanese food is healthy, rich in minerals and there are more takers for this food in India.

BUSTING MYTHS

Why should non-vegetarians have all the fun? Especially when Japanese restaurants serve dishes like a spinach salad, vegetable tempura, mango avocado cream cheese sushi and more. Says The Metropolitan Hotel’s Khanna, at Sakura we have designed the menu to 40 per cent vegetarian to make Japanese food available to our vegetarian guests. This food boom must be music to the ears of the burgeoning expat Japanese workforce in Delhi.

The Health Benefits of Eating Kale

As one of the most prominent leafy vegetables in Europe, kale is a wondrous raw food with a plethora of redeeming qualities. Featured in many famous dishes from Africa, Ireland, Asia, the Netherlands, Brazil, Denmark, Holland, Sweden, Montenegro and Portugal kale is truly a global provider. Despite its amazing health benefits and international allure kale still remains largely under the radar in America. It is so popular in Germany, social clubs and celebrations have evolved around the vegetable but in America you rarely see kale used at restaurants or even in home cooked meals. Maybe it is the temptations of fast food, meat, frying and large portions that have kept kale largely undiscovered in the United States but as health and diet agendas hopefully so too will the uses of kale. As a super raw food that fairly inexpensive and easy to source there is no reason why we all should not be cooking with this leafy friend more often. Mostly promoted and supported by vegan, vegetarian and raw food enthusiasts everyone would be better served by including more kale in their daily eating routines. Very easy to cook with and boasting a voracious variety of uses it should not be difficult for anyone to increase their kale intake. After we learn a little more about kale and review its many health benefits I am sure there will be a clamor at the supermarkets to buy some.

Kale is in the cabbage family and comes in green or purple headless leaves. Other color variations may consist of whites, yellows, blues and reds. The vegetable is strong in flavor and can become even more pronounced after being frozen or exposed to frost. The plant also grows very well in wintry and harsh climates making it very versatile as far as cultivation is concerned. Some close brothers to kale are broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kohlrabi, rapini, collard greens and brussels sprouts. Kale is viewed as a superfood with many healing qualities. In addition to its nutritional values kale is also often used for garnish and decoration. Most ornamental cabbage you see in gardens is from the kale family. Kale cultivars and looseleaf type classifications include curly leaved (Scots Kale Lutes), plain leaved, rape Kale lutes, leaf and spear (a cross between curly leaved and plain leaved Kale Lutes) and cavolo nero (also known as Tuscan Kale Lutes and dinosaur Kale Lutes). Leaf form and texture are the identifying marks of different Kales and they can range from curled and wrinkled leaves (Scots) to flat with finely divided edges (Siberian or Russian). One cool characteristic of growing kale is that you can harvest the outer leaves as you need them without harming the plant or the future growth of more inner leaves. Kale is very simple to grow and is a great addition to any vegetable patch. It is of interesting to note that the tender and young kale is best for salads while the mature leaves are best for cooking. Speaking of food preparation lets take a look at some of the reasons why we should include this raw food in our meals and dishes.

Boiling Kale is not the recommended but steaming, micro-waving, stir frying and eating it raw are all highly encouraged. Kale is a cherished raw food because it is rich in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, calcium, glucosinolates, sulforaphane, vitamin E, vitamin A, iron, manganese, calcium, potassium and manganese. It is these facets of kale that are known to prevent and fight against such medical terrors as cancer, cataracts, emphysema and rheumatoid arthritis. A traditional serving size of kale (1 cup) only contains 40 – 60 calories making it a great weight loss aid. Containing a plethora of enriching antioxidant properties, compounds, minerals and nutrients the vegetable is also successful in preventing colds, improving skin tone and augmenting energy levels. Even though it helps the liver, the colon and other vital organs one special circumstance it does not aid in is those with thyroid issues. Containing goitrogen, a naturally-occurring substance in kale and if too much is consumed kale can interfere with the functioning of the thyroid gland or cause concern for those with thyroid problems. Regardless of this one caveat kale is still a food that must be consumed more often by more people.

If you care about your health, the environment and the raw food industry you should have no problem jumping on the kale bandwagon. Kale recipes are rarely complicated and the food is so flexible it can be used in smoothies, soups, salads and even main dishes. Although kale is often cooked and combined with meat we highly encourage its use only in a raw food setting. By eating kale raw we maximize its potential while helping the world as well as ourselves. A raw food diet is a great way to take care of the planet while also nurturing your body and kale is a perfect part of that plan. There are many awesome raw food cookbooks on the market that can show you some great kale recipes. The next time you are thinking of eating something raw and delicious hopefully kale will cross your mind and tummy. Here is even a great kale smoothie and soup recipe to get you started on your quest for kale indulgence. You can also check out my raw food cookbooks for more great cooking ideas.

Cat food: should you spend more on posh brands? | Money

Something of a revolution is under way in terms of what we eat, with growing numbers of people opting to go vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian. But what about the food we give to our pets? What’s in it, and is it worth spending more on premium brands?

My two cats are generally not fussy eaters, but last year, after one became ill, I started to look into the ingredients in their food.

Oscar and Dennis are two-year-old moggies and, apart from killing sprees of the local wildlife in our London neighbourhood, they don’t tend to cause many problems.

Our vet recommended changing their diet, as he claimed that feeding them Whiskas every day was akin to me eating McDonald’s for every meal. However, the replacement from Hill’s was about three times the price. After two weeks, Oscar was back to full health. Since then, I’ve been trialling brands to find a diet that’s healthy but not too expensive.

The options are endless, from grain-free to raw meat, but how much does what I’m giving them affect their health?

One in 20 of us buy the cheapest on offer, and 64% of cat owners have no idea what they should be looking for in the ingredients, according to a study from premium pet food brand Lily’s Kitchen.

South London vet Dr Rory Cowlam told me that as cats are carnivores, it is important they get high meat content, and this should be the first thing I look for. He says dry food is generally cheaper, easier to keep and better for cats’ teeth.

Rory Cowlam



Dr Rory Cowlam, a vet, says it is important for cats to get a high meat content in their diet.

“It is a common misconception that cats need a mix of dry and wet. There are some out there that will need wet food, but if your cat is healthy, there is no need,” he adds.

Some dry food can work out at around 40p a portion – less than the premium brands – and while it can cost slightly more than budget options, the meat quantity is often higher.

Clare Hamilton, a vet in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, says that when it comes to supermarket brands, “there are far too many own-brands of varying quality and price”.

She adds: “The most important thing is to look at its contents and go for the highest quality you can afford, whether that is organic, supermarket or a scientific brand.”

Henrietta Morrison, founder of Lily’s Kitchen, reckons most foods are made with fillers such as grains, bone meal, sugars and flavourings, so there is little actual meat. This is why she started the brand, and says customers report their cats behaving better on it, along with having better digestion and overall health.

The Lily’s range contains 65% meat, whereas many leading brands would appear to be a lot lower – though it can be hard to tell, as labelling is sometimes far from clear.

For example, on the ingredients panel of a standard sachet of Whiskas chicken in gravy, the first thing listed is “meat and animal derivatives (38%, of which 94% natural, including 4% chicken)”. Then it’s cereals, minerals (0.5%) and “various sugars”. A typical sachet of Felix chicken in jelly says the ingredients are “meat and animal derivatives (of which chicken 4%), fish and fish derivatives, minerals, various sugars”.

Four per cent seems to be a common figure when it comes to the meat or fish stated on the packet.

However, if you want to ensure your cat is “only getting the good stuff,” as Morrison puts it, you can expect to pay quite a bit more.

With Whiskas or Felix wet food, for example, you might be looking at around 25p for 100g sachet in a box of 12, while a standard 85g individual serving from Lily’s Kitchen might set you back around 84p in a multipack.

When it comes to raw food, the science is arguably dubious. In fact, Cats Protection (formerly the Cats Protection League) says there are no clinical studies to argue it is better than cooked. “Shop-bought raw food is not the same as a freshly killed rodent or bird, particularly as it is likely to have been refrigerated or frozen,” it says. “Cats in the wild eat the entire animal, so just feeding chicken breasts or similar will not meet all its nutritional needs.

“There is also an increased risk of infections such as E coli, salmonella and campylobacter, which can cause disease in cats and serious illness in humans – and the potential link between raw food and TB is a further concern.”

Cowlam told me a bad diet can lead to many problems including obesity, heart, liver or kidney disease, cystitis, or poor growth and development. The number one reason for cat owners claiming on insurer Direct Line’s policies last year was gastro-related illnesses.

When my cats recently turned their noses up at Whiskas, I mentioned it on Twitter, and the company replied that this may be linked to the fact that it had made some changes to its recipe.

It says: “We’ve made the gravy and jelly much thicker and enhanced the appearance, making each recipe more distinctive across the different varieties. We have also ensured that the balance of minerals support a healthy urinary tract.”

In a statement, it said cats naturally seek variety in their foods, “which is why we regularly change our recipes”.

While Oscar and Dennis are undeniably spoilt, I’m not ready to pay almost £1 per meal. But to avoid more vet bills, they are going to have to settle for a dry food with a higher percentage of meat or fish – and less additional ingredients – and, of course, the occasional treat.

Can Heartburn Last For Days?

When you have heartburn, sometimes the one thing that makes you feel better is the knowledge that it won’t last forever – right? Can heartburn last for days? If it does, what should you do to help get rid of it? If you are suffering from heartburn and are wondering how long it will last, you should know a few things first.

First of all, knowing what causes heartburn can make all the difference in the way you deal with it, so understand that there are a few different causes of this condition, including eating too much in one sitting, which can force your esophageal sphincter to stay open. Other causes of heartburn include drinking coffee and carbonated beverages, alcohol, using tobacco products and eating certain “trigger” foods. You can also find that you suffer from heartburn due to stomach bugs, such as the flu, which can cause your stomach to make more acid than normal.

Okay, so you’re probably thinking, “Yes, but that doesn’t tell me the answer to my question: Can heartburn last for days?” The answer is yes, depending on many factors. One factor could be that you are suffering from some type of stomach bug, which means you can wind up struggling with heartburn for several days, or as long as it takes you to rid your body of the particular bug that is affecting your system.

A Few Reasons Why Heartburn Seems To Last For Days

Also, you might find it interesting to know that many people who smoke or use tobacco products frequently suffer from heartburn that can last for days. For some people, something in tobacco can cause the esophageal sphincter to become irritated, which will prevent it from sealing properly. In this case, it isn’t due to eating too much or consuming things that cause the stomach to create extra acid, it has to do with the fact that the esophagus doesn’t have the seal it needs to prevent acid from coming out of the stomach. When this occurs, heartburn can last for days, or as long as it takes for that muscle to heal itself and begin functioning properly again.

Certain foods or drinks that we eat or drink frequently or habitually can cause the stomach to make more acid than it needs to. Drinks such as coffee tend to be very acidic, which in turn will cause an excess of acid in the stomach. When this happens, you can begin to feel that you have heartburn. In this case, it can feel as if your heartburn is lasting for days, but actually, it keeps recurring due to the fact that you’re constantly consuming these things. The best way to stop this type of heartburn is to identify the cause and eliminate it from your diet for a while.

What Are Your Reasons?

So, in short, heartburn can last for days, but you can manage it and manage it well if you know what is causing your heartburn in the first place. Consider your habits and what it is that you eat and see what you can do to help yourself. Is it the same bout you are experiencing or actually a culmination of events causing it to appear as one?

How long can your heartburn last? Keep doing the same thing and you can expect the same results, or it could last a long time if you don’t do something about it!

Creating Diet Men For Diabetics That Work, Including Cake and Ice Cream

Launching a diet plan beneficial to diabetics can be confusing and even overwhelming at first. What to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat are typical questions that can intimidate most people. Additionally, you'll need to learn about insulin levels, glucose, carbohydrates, and understanding the effect that diabetes has on your system.

Planning meals can be intimidating at first, but it is critical if you are trying to lose or gain weight, or deal with an illness like diabetes. With duethough, preparation, and modifications that fit the way you live, you will be able to put together a diet program that will certainly provide the nutrients that are essential to your daily diet.

Diabetic Diet Menus

Making food choices that are practical and well thought out can have a substantial effect on your blood glucose levels and insulin levels. A diabetic diet can aid your weight loss program by creating a shortage of calories. Three diabetic diet menus that are most often used to establish this calorie shortage include the 1800 calorie, the 1500 calorie, and the 1200 calorie diabetic diet. A shortage of 500 calories daily will lead to a one pound weight loss weekly.

On holidays and other special occasions like birthday parties or a neighborhood barbecue, you can simply adjust your own meal portions so that certain treats like cake and ice cream can be worked into the usual diabetic menu. If you have a smaller evening dinner meal, you will be able to have a small proportion of these other prohibited foods. If you prefer, you can waive the cake and ice cream, and opt for calorie-free drink instead. Eating your regular dinner with a serving of dessert is fine if you make sure to fit a half hour walk in afterward.

Your standard diabetic diet menu needs to provide about 7,500 Kj and 180g of carbohydrates daily. Skim or low-fat milk, whole wheat bread, chicken, potatoes, salad including lettuce and tomato, fruits and vegetables, low fat yogurt, and lean meats such as pork chops and roast beef belong in this diet, which must be cooked in a non-stick pan using a vegetable spray base. Each day should include breakfast, a small mid-morning meal, lunch, a small mid-afternoon meal, supper and bedtime morsel.

Type 2 Diabetic Diet Menus

Smoking, elevated cholesterol levels, and heart disease are just a few of the factors that put diabetics at an increased risk of developing complications. By familiarizing yourself with the fundamentals of a good diabetic diet menu and adhering to it every day, the benefits are countless. The basic diabetic diet menu includes a low-sugar, low-carb choice of foods that keep blood sugar levels in check, so able to withstand any of myriad of diabetic complications.

Your diabetic diet menu needs to include less fat, salt and sugar, and provide plenty of dietary fiber. It is critical to eat a well balanced diet, take in moderate exercise daily, make sure your blood pressure is under control, keep track of your cholesterol levels, and if you still smoke, quit.

Here’s what happens to your body when you eat a burger

There isn’t any doubt that burgers are tasty and people across all age groups love to have them. But we also know they are not good for our health, so much so that even occasional binging can be harmful for your health. Don’t believe us? Let us tell you what exactly happens to your body after eating a burger.

What science says…
You can count on science to ruin everything. Science says that junk foods are full of calories, fat and excess sodium and having it even once can be bad for your health. For example, a single hamburger contains 500 calories, 25 grams of fat, 40 grams of carbs, 10 grams of sugar, and 1,000 milligrams of sodium, which is enough to cause havoc in your system.

After 15 minutes of your first bite of burger, you will experience a massive surge of glucose. This triggers the release of insulin, which makes you feel hungry again in a few hours. Repeating this pattern can increase the risk of diabetes. In scientific terms, the process of taking excessive calories in one sitting puts oxidative stress on cells.

Having a meal high, which is loaded with saturated fat can be harmful to your health. When a group of healthy men were fed with food high in saturated fat, it was found that their arteries were significantly impaired and did not dilate as much. This restriction of blood flow can lead to cardiac disease later in life.

The high amount of sodium can have a negative impact on the blood vessel.

So next time you have the temptation to grab a burger, think twice!

How I Handle Dog Fights Over RAW Food – Pack Feeding Video (K9 Mukbang/Pack-Bang)



In this video I show how I handle dog fights over RAW food as I train my young dogs to eat RAW food with the adults in the pack. This is a ‘pack feeding’ to foster a healthy pack dynamic. It allows the adults to teach the pups their boundaries when feeding in a group.

Dogs seen in this video are my two 13 month Renascence Bulldogges Rekkr and Magi, Blue Bay Shepherd Kurgan, German Shepherd Lobo and my Lycan Shepherd Ulu. Again, this IS NOT what a typical RAW meal looks like for them… it’s a ‘pack feeding’. You can find videos of a typical RAW meal for them in my RAW food playlist linked below.

** DISCLAIMER **
“I’m just some guy on YouTube.” I am not a “professional” dog trainer nor K9 nutritionist and I am not representing myself as one. I am here just showing what ‘I do’ and what ‘works for me’ as a long time Animal Warden, breeder and dog rescuer and I explain while doing it why I do it this way. 🙂

* Before asking me any feeding questions in the comments (OR ON INSTAGRAM) look through the several links I am providing below. 99.9% of any RAW feeding questions you have for me will be answered expertly in those links in more detail than I can provide in the video comments. 🙂

*To answer a question I know I will get in the comments:

* Yes, it’s OK to feed your dogs ‘RAW’ bones. It’s only cooked bone you should never feed your dogs – Cooking the bone makes it undigested, brittle and prone to causing obstruction of the g-track and a perforated bowel. Canines are meant to digest raw bones and have been doing it for millions of years. Don’t take my word for it though, I’m just some guy on YouTube… lol. Do your research. I’ll provide some links down below if you’d like to do that. I’ve been feeding this way for over 20 years with great results.

*My dogs all live in the house.

*Muk-bang or mukbang is an online broadcast in which a host eats large quantities of food, while interacting with their audience. Usually done through a webcast.

* I feed my dogs the B.A.R.F. Diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods). Here are a couple of books on the B.A.R.F. diet I recommend by DVM Ian Billinghurst.

Reactive Hypoglycemia: Fix It With Fat!

Reactive Hypoglycemia can be a total nightmare! I know it was for me when I was first diagnosed. In the beginning, I literally had no idea as to what I could do to fix the problem or even cope with the problem. I thought, “What can I eat?”

I knew diet was key, but I did not exactly have the formula for fixing my problem; and my doctors were not helping me too much. They simply wanted to put me on a medicine that made me sick to my stomach and send me on my way. I mean, we all know the importance of doctors, and I do appreciate what they do, but how many times do they just go through the motions? Run the tests, prescribe the medication!

Well, the doctors had nothing to help me! So, I had to help myself, which was nothing new as I am a 4-time survivor of cancer and was used to using diet and supplementation as a way to optimize my health. So I started researching, talking with dietitians, personal trainers and bodybuilders. I learned about the low carbohydrate diet and the Ketogenic diet, and from those diets I learned about the importance of fat in treating all sorts of conditions including Reactive Hypoglycemia.

Now, don’t run off just yet because I mentioned fat. Fat has gotten a bad rap over the years, but really can benefit you when eaten with the proper diet. You see, your body burns carbohydrates first, then fats, then protein… and we know that Reactive Hypoglycemia is basically a reaction to carbohydrates, especially simple carbohydrates. Simply put, with Reactive Hypoglycemia, you eat carbohydrates and 1 to 4 hours later your body is secreting an excess of insulin and causing your blood sugar to drop. This of course comes with all sorts of fun symptoms like dizziness, anxiety, tremors, cold extremities, heart palpitations, etc.

So, after learning this, I decided to lower my carbohydrates dramatically and add more fat! I started eating more bacon, red meat, peanut butter, cheese, coconut oil, butter and heavy cream. Remember, if your body has no carbohydrates to use as an energy source, it will use fat.

Not only did I lower my carbohydrate intake, but when I ate carbohydrates, I only ate complex carbohydrates and I ate them with fat… and on top of that, I eliminated all refined foods from my diet, all simple and starchy carbohydrates, sugars, caffeine and alcohol. Not eating these things is crucial to you getting Reactive Hypoglycemia under control.

For example, in the morning for breakfast, along with my serving of cottage cheese and egg whites, I would eat about a quarter bowl of raw oatmeal with butter, heavy cream, coconut oil and a few blueberries. This combination of the fat with the carbohydrates would slow down by body’s absorption rate and keep my blood sugar levels from spiking. This in turn would keep my insulin levels from spiking and causing a Hypoglycemic episode.

In the end, I learned that eating small, frequent meals was very important. I also learned that eating a low carbohydrate diet, and a diet high in fat, fiber and protein was the key to me being able to live a “normal” and active life again. It took some time for my body to adjust. In the beginning my energy levels were low and I would get tired easily, but within a few weeks I had adjusted and had my new diet system down to a science.

As a disclaimer, I am not a doctor, but I am a person that has gotten my Reactive Hypoglycemia under control naturally through diet alone. If you are starting a new diet, I always recommend consulting with your doctor first. Also, as you get started, keep a food journal and remember that if you are physically active and exercise or lift weights, your diet must account for that. Stay focused, determined and hopeful!
