Not Everyone Gets Fat from Eating Carbs

Not Everyone Gets Fat from Eating Carbs

My mom grew up believing refined sugars and starchy foods such as pasta, potatoes, bread, sugar, corn, and white rice were fattening. She was right! Sweets are probably the worst, along with sugar-water combinations; think juices and sodas. Refined carbohydrates raise your insulin levels and scientists have known since the early 1960s that insulin is the primary hormone that regulates your fat tissue. This is not controversial.

Another Good Reason to Lose Weight!

Another Good Reason to Lose Weight!

“Oh, my aching joints! I feel so old! I can’t move like I used to.”

Sound familiar? This isn’t limited to the geriatric population anymore. Many people start to feel pain and stiffness in their joints as they get older, often when they’re 45 to 50. It’s called arthritis, and it’s one of the most common diseases nationwide. You may think it’s a disease of old age, but arthritis can affect young adults and even children.
