My portion• What are the stats?• How does this eating and insulin thing work?• Is the problem “all in your glands”?• What have the Feds said and why are their recommendations so stupid?• What’s a rational way to eat (with references)
Current stats on obesity National Center for Health Statistics
“F as in Fat – How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2012” – Robert Wood Johnson foundation Current and future IN obesity rates:2011 – 25 %2030 –49.5%(if BMI reduced5%)2030 – 56% http://healthyamericans.org/report/100/
The Doc Cady “Candy Bar a Day” Weight Loss Program• 1 lb. of fat = 3,500 kcal (“calories”)• 3,500 / 7 = 500 calories per day – You need to not eat’em, or burn’em • Starving yourself slows your metabolism down, and you lose muscle mass – Therefore: reduce 250 calories; burn 250 calories• 250 calories = no candy bar, or “NO” to 1 & ½ Cokes• 250 calories = ½ - ¾ hour on treadmill• NET = 500 calories per day, or 1 lb. lost per week
One problem…• It doesn’t work!• TBL: It’s the INSULIN RESPONSE• RX: EAT LESS CARBS AND SUGAR!!!
Glycemic index• A measure of how fast a carbohydrate triggers a rise in circulating blood sugar.• The higher the number, the greater the blood sugar response.

Doc Cady “Candy Bar a Day” program FLAWS:• Not all calories from food do the same thing to your body: – Removing 250 cal of sweet potatoes is not the same as removing 250 calories from candy bar.• Doesn’t account for thyroid or thyroid resistance.• This program only focuses on WEIGHT LOSS, and not OPTIMUM HEALTH H - 13

ADRENALSCommon Symptoms of Adrenal Dysfunction Weight gain, especially in waist hips and thighs ( cortisol response) Crave sugar/starch and sometimes salt Fatigue Low blood pressure which may becomes elevated in middle age Allergies Exercise does not promote weight loss . . . And may even gain! Low blood sugar usually after lunch ( the low energy/sleepy drop) Muscle loss and flab even with exercise Wakes up every few hours at night Is more hungry during the day if eats breakfast Low or no libido!
SEX STEROIDSESTRADIOL Improves insulin sensitivity ( less cortisol, less fat storage) Improves muscle mass, strength, and metabolism Better muscle mass = increased metabolic rate, and you burn more calories Increased serotonin function which decreases cravings and desires for comfort foods Inhibits MAO enzyme activity, which prolongs activity of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine and helps to decrease appetite Restores normal sleep stages, which lowers cortisol, increases GH (growth hormone), and improves nighttime muscle repair More?
Other Symptoms Of Estradiol Imbalances Weight gain Insomnia Hot flushes or flashes Night sweats Memory, communication, and attention span loss, brain “fog”, depression, and/or anxiety to panic attacks Mood swings Aches and pain Incontinence Digestive disturbances Sensory function loss Ageing skin . . . thinning, wrinkles, sagging
Sex Steroid- Progesterone Has a calming effect, acting like a benzodiazapene to the brain Enhances mood Regulates fluid balance, sodium mineral balance Balances blood sugar Necessary for fertility Increases energy and libido Helps relieve menopausal symptoms Decreases risk of endomettrial cancer and may help protect against breast cancer, fibrocystic breasts, and osteoporosis
Key? Labs example:As an educational consultant to licensed MD’s, these are the labs I recommend: For Adrenal /Hyperinsulinism: 3hr GTT with concomitant insulin blood draws fasting draw for glucose, insulin and cortisol 1hr draw for glucose and insulin 2hr draw for glucose and insulin 3hr draw for glucose, insulin and cortisol
Why ARE YOU FAT?• 2 out of the top10 reasons why you are fat; Sex Steroids and Metabolic Syndrome.• More? – Food Allergies – Viruses (EBV, Herpes and CMV) – Stress (emotional and/or physical) – Leptin Resistance – Sleep disorders – (Bad dietary choices!!)
