WHAT DOES INSULIN HAVE TO DO WITH WEIGHT LOSS?
You may be thinking I’m not diabetic; my insulin is fine! Or I’ve always known that it’s bad to eat sugar, so I hardly ever have candy. That’s where the breakthrough research about insulin and the huge amounts of hidden sugar in our everyday “healthy” foods come into play. It is absolutely vital that you know that insulin is the hormone controlling your body’s ability to push fat into fat cells. Without lowering insulin levels, it’s really hard to lose weight. Controlling your insulin puts the foot on the brake pedal of your body’s ability to store fat.
HOW DO YOU CONTROL YOUR INSULIN? The only way to control your insulin level is to eat the right amount of sugar and carbohydrates – a ratio less than or equal to 15 grams of sugar and 6 servings of carbohydrates per day. In March's Blog Archive, you can read about "your carb bucket" and the 30:10 Rule. It’s sugar and carbs that lead to weight gain. The 30:10 rule addresses carb control. But now, it's time to take the 30:10 Rule to a deeper level! If you're absolutely serious about weight loss, there's a new layer to the 30:10. . . we're going to watch our sugar intake too! Here’s how that process works:
First, let’s imagine that you eat a candy bar or even a glass of milk. Simple sugars (like the ones found in these foods) are immediately released into your bloodstream and trigger the pancreas to pump a rush of insulin into the blood. The insulin transports sugar to the cells, but this hormone also pushes fat into them! Remember, insulin is the primary regulator of fat cells, and only sugar will trigger insulin.
Technically, carbohydrates are big sugars that your body needs time to break down. They affect your insulin because they’re broken down into sugar, which is then released into your bloodstream. The difference is that these complex sugars are released at a much slower rate that simple sugars and therefore cause a more modest release of insulin. In order to release stored fat, though, you must keep your insulin level low by tracking your daily sugar and carbohydrate intake. With our 30:10, we've already been tracking our carbohydrates; now we're adding one more layer of power; we're going to be tracking our grams of sugar per day.
So here’s your daily amount of sugar and carbs “goal.”
PER DAY: 15 grams of sugar and 6 servings of carbohydrates. Carbohydrate servings will be counted as follows:
0 to 4 carbohydrate grams = not counted
5 to 20 carbohydrate grams = 1 serving
21 to 40 carbohydrate grams = 2 servings (If you go over 30 grams of carbs, take 3 of Advocare's Carb Ease to block the excess carbs from being converted into fat)
41 to 60 carbohydrate grams = 3 servings (Take 6 Carb Ease to stop the absorption of excess carbs)

If you follow this; 15 grams or less of sugar & 6 servings of carbs per day; and use Carb Ease/Fibo-Trim when you exceed these ratios,
It allows you to lose fat rapidly but still feel satisfied and able to eat the carbs you love.
WHAT ABOUT FIBER?
Get at least 25 grams per day. Typically, if your 6 servings of carbs come from whole-grains, fruits and vegetable sources, you’re going to meet or exceed your daily fiber needs. However, if you are not having at least one good bowel movement per day, try adding Advocare’s Fiber Drink and Advocare’s Probiotic Ultra to your day. (Found in the WELL line of product on www.joinemily.com) Make sure you are drinking 8 – 12 glasses of water per day too.
WHAT ABOUT PORTION SIZES? The portion is very specific for sugars and carbohydrates, as these two elements will affect your insulin. However, the portion size for fats and proteins is chosen by you and will vary, depending on the amount your body needs to feel physically satisfied. . . no more and no less. It is recommended that you start with an amount that you could easily fit into the palm of one hand, and then add more if you’re still physically hungry. But remember just because you’re not told how much cheese to eat, this doesn’t mean you can eat the whole block and expect to lose weight! You’ll begin to learn about dangerous hidden sugars found in so many foods and products you’ve been told are healthy, like a lot of yogurts! Did you know that a lot of yogurts have over 30 grams of sugar?! That’s double your daily allowance of sugar grams!! If you want incredibly fast results, follow the provided complete menus for at least the first couple weeks and go ahead and weigh yourself every morning! Seeing the rapid weight loss results will give you the motivation and confidence to create menus for your own specific tastes. Check product labels (no matter what!) because so many items contain hidden sugar. Watch out for hidden sugars otherwise named, high-fructose corn syrup etc. If you would like me to email you my "Daily Carb & Sugar Traching Sheet," email me, I'll forward you the document to ue!
