Outsmart Your Body's Response to Holiday Goodies
One of my top diet recommendations for overall health and well-being is to stay away from foods made with flour, sugar, and other high-glycemic carbohydrates since they contribute to insulin resistance, diabetes, and weight gain. But I also know that avoiding high-glycemic carbs is easier said than done for most of us—especially at this time of year when holiday cookies and other sugary, starchy foods abound.
That’s why I want to tell you about a way to counteract their negative effects when temptation wins out against willpower.
Phase 2 Carb Blocker is an extract of white beans that has been shown to inhibit amylase, an enzyme necessary for the digestion of starches. Most people use carb blockers as weight loss aids, and research suggests that this special extract may provide that benefit when it’s combined with exercise and a sensible diet containing moderate amounts of carbs.
But what I like most is this extract’s potential to promote normal glucose levels after high-carb meals. In one study, when participants took 750 mg of Phase 2 Carb Blocker as part of a meal high in starchy carbohydrates, their blood glucose levels returned to baseline more quickly.
My Cinnamon Carb Blocker product contains 1,500 mg of Phase 2 Carb Blocker per serving (3 capsules). It also includes 250 mg of cinnamon powder. Cinnamon contains methylhydroxychalcone polymer (MHCP), which has been shown to improve the utilization of glucose by fat cells. The suggested dose is three capsules prior to any meal that’s high in carbohydrates.
There’s no doubt that Phase 2 Carb Blocker can be a real help, but keep in mind that it is not a license to overindulge throughout the holiday season. You still need to do your best to make healthy eating choices whenever possible, and also get some exercise and manage your stress.
Now it’s your turn: Have you ever used a carb blocker?
