As most people are well aware (from a previous post) I’ve been eating 100% RAW fruits and vegetables for about five months now. It may seem on the surface that eating fruit—which is usually sweet—would cause blood sugar problems. The proponents of the fad low-carb diets say that insulin is the bad guy and that people need to limit carbohydrates in order to limit insulin release.
One burgers amount of beef, or three slices of cheddar cheese, raises insulin levels more than almost two cups of pasta (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 50, 1997: 1264).
One-quarter pound of beef raises insulin levels in diabetics as much as one-quarter pound of straight sugar (Diabetes Care 7, 1984: 465). Beef and cheese raise insulin levels higher than high-carbohydrate foods like pasta (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 50, 1997:1264). To ensure I’m not deficient in iron, B12, protein, and calcium, I will soon undergo a more extensive blood test.

Sadly, no matter how many ab workout programs you do, if you don’t address the layer of blubber hiding your abs, you will never get to see the fruits of your labor.
And in the worst case scenario, your friends won’t let you in the door until you show them the Truffle Shuffle.
To get those abs to pop you need to specifically address that belly fat and there are a couple of things you can do to specifically target stubborn fat.
If you have a stressful job, don’t sleep enough, have money worries, hit your workouts hard and frequently, allow yourself to succumb to road rage as you drive to work, or just live with a level of anxiety about the pressures of life, there is a very good chance that you need to fix your cortisol, if there is ever any hope of having a lean mid section. Nutritionally speaking, there are a couple of techniques that will help keep cortisol under control.
I usually have 2-3 high carbohydrate days throughout my week, all coinciding with my biggest workout days. Secondly, a quick supplement trick to reducing post-workout cortisol, and get your body burning belly fat rather than storing it, is to supplement with Vitamin C before your workout. A number of studies have shown that taking Vitamin C before intense exercise has the ability to drastically reduce cortisol levels after your workout. You want to take 1000-2000mg before your workouts to give you an edge as you say goodbye to belly fat. In 2007, a study published by the Endocrine Society, showed that regular drinkers have chronically higher levels of cortisol. Bottom line, if getting a ripped midsection is a priority for you, frequent alcohol consumption will make things really difficult. In a nutshell, insulin sensitivity is how efficiently your body accepts the nutrients you are feeding it. As with cortisol, the primary nutrient you want to be aware of for managing your insulin levels is carbohydrates. Carbohydrates that are high in fiber and lower in sugars don’t elevate blood sugar nearly at the same rate. The right time to eat carbohydrates is anytime that your body is naturally very insulin sensitive. Needless to say, if you can strategically elevate catecholamines, fat burning won’t be a problem for you.

I’ve also personally found that these day long fasts have worked wonders for improving my gut health. To summarize, here are the top 8 things you can do to start melting that stubborn body fat. Glycemic index, also called glycaemic index (GI), is a ranking system for carbohydrates based on their effect on blood glucose levels in the first two hours after eating. Glycemic index has been described in these words: "The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. A high GI food causes a more rapid rise in blood glucose levels and is suitable for energy recovery after endurance exercise or for a person with diabetes experiencing hypoglycemia. Glycemic index may is used to determine the suitability of diet in person with conditions of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. The GI does not take into consideration other factors besides glycemic response, such as insulin response.
The GI of a food varies depending on the kind of food, its ripeness, the length of time it was stored, how it was cooked, its variety, etc., and how it was processed or manufactured. The GI of a food varies from person to person and even in a single individual from day to day, depending on blood glucose levels, insulin resistance, and other factors.
This criticism can be addressed by taking the Glycemic load (that is, ranking system for carbohydrate content in food portions based on their glycemic index (GI) and the portion size) into account. The comparison of foods that behave differently by a common consideration of the area under their blood glucose curves has no scientific basis and is fundamentally incorrect. What they don’t mention is that fat and protein-rich rich foods also cause considerable insulin release. Perhaps at this point, such a test will reveal, I am deficient in one of the following four categories. The afternoon Kicked off with a good old fashion game of soccer, followed by a massive game of CHUCK the CHIKEN, and concluded with a fitness circuit. And if you can get your fat loss hormones working in your favor, belly fat will be a thing of the past. For starters, making sure you’re getting 7-9 hours of sleep each night and avoiding long marathon (over an hour) workouts is a good place to start. In fact, one study published in the International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance showed that athletes taking 1500mg of Vitamin C before a 2 hour training session reduced their cortisol levels by an average of 57%.
The processing of alcohol in your body, which your liver deems as a toxic substance, is a stressful event that raises cortisol levels. By eating the right carbohydrates at the right time you will be able to keep insulin on your good side. And, as mentioned above, the one time when your body is most insulin sensitive is your first meal after a demanding workout. In fact, numerous studies have shown that intermittent fasting increases blood levels of catecholamines which in turn increases your rate of fat burning. I think that occasionally taking a break from digesting my typical foods is a nice change for my digestive system. 4 Day Fat Loss (4DFL) is dedicated to teaching simple techniques to rapidly burn fat, increase energy and live a healthier life.
Readers should consult the appropriate health professional on any matter related to your health, injury, pain, fitness, well-being, etc.
It compares carbohydrates gram for gram in individual foods, providing a numerical, evidence-based index of post-meal (medically called: postprandial) glycemia. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and absorbed and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels.

Recent studies from Harvard School of Public Health [1] "indicate that the risks of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease are strongly related to the GI of the overall diet.
This combined approach is, however, somewhat more complicated, and therefore harder to use in giving dietary advice. Liquid foods or easilly dissolved foods where all carbohydrate is immediately available for conversion to glucose cannot be compared to solids where only the surface of the food is immediately available and a further portion released later . In addition to these changes, I’ve also had some very interesting conversations and concerns from family and friends. Other things that relax you such as meditating, reading, journalling, going for a walk or anything else along those lines, will go a long way to help with controlling the stress hormone. By adding some days of high carb intake, especially after difficult workouts, you will be able to reduce this energy system stress.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, when you are insulin resistant, fat storage (especially on your belly) becomes the order of the day. In that time I have also became certified as a Specialist in Performance Nutrition and a Certified Fitness Trainer. If you want to find out how to burn fat quickly and transform your body check out the 4DFL Method.
Low-GI foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health.
The curve for solids will be extended in time due to the delayed release of carbohydates and thus always give a larger area than liquids. Please watch the video posted below by another RAW foodist, who also did a similar test and found similar results. Douglas Graham “it is almost impossible to get too much sugar from the consumption of fresh fruit. I make this accusation based on the fact that I just ran a 3-hour marathon in Fredericton on Sunday, May 12 (qualifying me for the most prestigious marathon of all time, Boston) If I was deficient, would I have been able to train and run at this volume for the past 5 months? Looking to get bigger after years of being a skinny middle distance runner, I wanted to put on muscle. When these cathecholamines are elevated your body will start oxidizing (burning) fat at a proficient rate due to activation of Hormone Sensitive Lipase (HSL). With the 24 hour fast, I will eat dinner tonight and then not eat again until dinner tomorrow night. Low GI diets have been shown to improve both glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). A recent study considering this issue based on the consolidated test results of over 600 foods concluded that the GI significantly underestimated the glycemic effect of liquids and readilly dissolved substanced and that real GI of sugar and its close cousin fruit juice should be around 100 and 80 respectively. Many of my friends have asked “Won’t eating all that fruit cause high blood sugar, or make you diabetic?” Along with their concerns, this was an obvious concern of mine as well.
Eating fruit is not the cause of blood sugar problems…it’s just not that simple.” According to Graham, the real cause is too much fat.
The 36 hour fast extends this fasting period past dinner tomorrow night and I would then eat the following morning. Although 36 sounds much more difficult, the reality is most of the time you are fasting is during sleep, so it is actually far less tedious than it sounds.
With all this sugar consumption, surely this would cause blood sugars to spiral out of control, or, put you at risk for developing diabetes.
