Unfortunately, we have experience sickness rather than health from with obesity increasing from around 15% of the population in the 1980's to over 33% of the population today. And the number of people classified as morbidly obese has increased as well over the same time period. Luckily adopting a low carbohydrate diet can reverse obesity and overweight one person at a time. The Digestive Diseases Epidemic - Do you remember seeing commercials for irritable bowel syndrome drugs on the TV 10 years ago? No. Because they did not exist. In the past several decades there has been an increase in digestive diseases from simple GERD (indigestion), to IBS and Constipation, to Crohn's Disease. Much of this can be attributed to and improved by eliminating wheat gluten from the diet. High Carbohydrate Morbidity and Mortality - Morbidity means "sickness" and that's what we have covered thus far in this presentation. Mortality means "death" and these same diseases exacerbated by refined carbohydrates are the some of the major causes of mortality in the US, including: heart disease, cancer, stroke, Alzheimer's disease (sometimes called diabetes type 3), and diabetes. A low carbohydrate diet directly or indirectly reduces the risk for several of these diseases which not only cause our mortality, but also cause, on average, 10 years of disability prior to death. Stopping the Insulin Cascade of Disease with a low carb diet - This is the set of diseases that linked either directly or indirectly with insulin levels in the body. Below is how a low carb diet improves the following diseases: Heart Disease and the Low Carb Diet - Atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke) has a set of multifactorial risk factors including high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, chronic inflammation, and metabolic syndrome among others. All of these risk factors, and more, are improved on a low carbohydrate diet. Sleep Apnea and the Low Carb Diet - Sleep apnea is caused by obstruction of the upper airway during sleep, causing periods of apnea (not breathing) and is associated with loud snoring. The cause of the airway obstruction is often excess fat tissue causing narrowing and laxity of the tissue with subsequent collapse of the airway during sleep. The more overweight a person is, the higher their risk of sleep apnea. By simply reducing weight on a low carb diet, the airway becomes more open and sleep apnea can be improved or eliminated. The Low Carb Food Pyramid - There are a variety of ways you can arrange your diet around a low carbohydrate food pyramid. The first thing to do is simply cut the bottom of the food pyramid (remove all wheat, grains, cereal grains, pastas and breads). What comes next is up to you. You can make the bulk of your diet meat, fish, chicken, and eggs. Then add veggies and nuts and oils. Or you can think of the bulk of your diet as veggies with lot of healthy fats and oils, then some meats. Or you think of healthy saturated and monounsaturated fats and oils as the base of the pyramid with veggies and meats after that. The choice is up to you and there are a variety of ways that will wo...
