Study after study confirms that the majority of Americans (from our children through our elders) have become the fattest, sickest people in the history of time. We “require” the most prescription medications as our health care costs have skyrocketed into the trillions of dollars/year. We are fueling trillion dollar businesses…with our declining health and ultimately paying with our lives.
We don’t need more studies to point this out. We get it.
What we need is for our government, medical associations, universities, medical community, and our children’s schools….to educate the population and focus attention on a health issue that over 60% of Americans have…along with the diet and activity program that can start solving our weight and weight related health epidemics….starting TODAY.
This is a fact: The majority of those who become overweight, obese, those who go on to a diagnosis of pre diabetes or type 2 diabetes, who have nutrition-related cardiovascular disease ….all these people…have a quiet underlying metabolic problem that most are not aware of.
They don’t realize that the diet recommendations that are agreed upon by the government, medical associations, schools, food manufacturers to promote weight loss, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and prevent diabetes is the very diet prescription that PROMOTES WEIGHT GAIN, OBESITY, AND DIABETES.
The name of this underlying metabolic condition is “metabolic syndrome.” It has also been called Syndrome X. I call it “Metabolism B.” Why Met B? To make it simple. It’s that easy to distinguish if a person has what has been known as normal metabolism (Met A) or is suffering from lack of knowledge regarding another “type” of metabolism (Met B). It’s that simple. Really, it is.
A person has Met A or Met B. About 40% of people have Met A. About 60% of people have the genetic predisposition to Met B. Met B is progressive. And Met B is the type of metabolism that, if uncontrolled, leads to overweight, obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, triglycerides, hypertension, and some cancers (including breast cancer).
Uncontrolled Met B is fueling the epidemics of obesity and diabetes, has cranked up the US’s dependence on pharmaceuticals/
There is a solution for the millions of people with metabolic syndrome. The solution does not require medication. It requires 3 things: Knowledge of the problem, factual information about how to control the problem, and making good lifestyle choices while leading a “liveable”
Metabolic syndrome (Met B) is genetic and progressive. A child is born with the genes for metabolic syndrome, and then the "stressors" of life...inactivity, stress, and high carb intake push the button and the child progresses to have midline fat deposits, overweight/obesity, high cholesterol , hypertension, and even type 2 diabetes as a child. His/her parents are most likely living with the same metabolic disturbance.
Unfortunately, the medical community (in the 1960's) decided to treat metabolic syndrome with a low calorie, low fat, low cholesterol diet. I’m not even going to ponder why this avenue was chosen, but I do know that we were "told" by the medical establishment that our cholesterol, blood pressure, weight, and blood sugar were the result of excess calories, excess saturated fat, excess cholesterol, and inactivity.
Food companies went into high gear concocting low calorie, low fat everything: low fat mayonnaise, ice cream, salad dressings, sugar free candy, cookies, cakes, low calorie frozen foods, fat free potato chips. A food pyramid was designed to focus on low calorie, low fat carbohydrate foods like grains, fruit, non fat milk, juice, cereal, yogurt, breads, legumes…. (all carbohydrate foods at the base of that pyramid).
After the the high profile promotion of the low calorie, low fat, low cholesterol diet as the way to prevent overweight, heart disease, and diabetes…. the epidemics of obesity and diabetes took off!
Truth be known, this low fat, low calorie diet is about 50-55% carbohydrate (sometimes more). For the millions with Met B, this style diet is a recipe for disaster. Why? The root underlying metabolic flaw for those with the genes for metabolic syndrome is INSULIN IMBALANCE and a diet of low fat, low calorie carbohydrate foods flips the switch on metabolic syndrome’s root problem….insulin over-release, insulin imbalance, and insulin resistance.
Think about it….the low fat, low cholesterol, low calorie diet is really a HIGH CARB DIET. The majority of people who will struggle with weight and weight related health issues cannot tolerate a high carbohydrate diet.
There is a ready and available solution to this disaster. Obesity and weight (insulin)related health issues triggered by obesity is our greatest “natural disaster.”
It is very easy to determine if a person has Metabolism A (they can maintain health and wellness on the traditional low fat, low cholesterol, low calorie diet) or Metabolism B (they can attain and maintain health and wellness on a program designed for their special metabolic needs). The answer is found in routine labwork. It’s not a matter of opinion, it is a matter of fact if you have Met A or Met B.
For the 60% of the population suffering from overweight, obesity, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high blood pressure, diabetes, the solution is available today
The program has been available to the public since April, 2009. It has been reviewed by Harvard’s Nutrition Committee and the New England Journal of Medicine. It is now followed around the world and is licensed in 7 languages. It works.
I am saddened that the AMA, ADA, and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is not strongly recommending the core lifestyle program behind The Metabolism Miracle and now The Diabetes Miracle. They know that it works.
If research money for finding the answer to the obesity/diabetes epidemics should go anywhere, it should go into a large scale study that will prove that this program is the answer we’ve been looking for so that we can provide this information to the US and the world.
For those who don’t want to wait for the government, medical institutions, universities, etc. to decide to share this information (it will significantly reduce the need for medications and health care dollars)….you can start improving your health today.
The results will be objective…. In black and white.
. You will experience major improvement in blood glucose, total cholesterol, LDL and HDL , blood pressure, triglycerides, and vitamin D. Medication requirements will dramatically decrease.
When you reach your desired weight, are on as little medication as possible, have normal lab work, and love the way you look and feel, there is a maintenance “way of life” that keeps you there.
The total cost of the program: under 11 dollars. The cost of a support program to provide answers to your questions by the developer of the program, latest information, recipes, tips, Forums, videos, blogs....20 cents/day.

We can do this on our own. We don’t have to wait to be spoon fed the information twenty five years from now when the government and medical associations agree that the Metabolism Miracle is the answer. By that time, hundreds of millions more will die and suffer from the ramifications of uncontrolled metabolic syndrome.
Let’s make history now.
