In Topic: Treating Insulin Resistance And Acne With High Carb Low Fat Vegan Diet

28 February 2015 - 11:22 AM

The majority of my diet is based around fruits and veg, so low glycemic carbs, so blood sugar shouldn't be a problem I just don't eat fats or high glycemic foods, occasionally I will have rice but not very often. I thought high blood insulin levels effected IGF-1 levels and androgen production though? Or am I mistaken?

 

Are you still eating in this way? How do you feel now that you've limited your fat intake?

 

Just asking because I read that the brain thrives on fats (avocado, fish, etc).

also any suggestion for vitamins/ lifestyle to adopt in order to prevent premature aging?

 

Experiment on yourself.

 

Increase your intake of water rich foods and increase your intake of good water (filtered water with a pinch of sea salt or a bit of lime juice). Moisturize yourself from within.

Eat plenty of beneficial fats to preserve your suppleness/juiciness- avocados, coconut cream, hemp seeds

Rest more, this includes mental rest (silence or meditation).

Reduce your stress. Find ways to make life easier for yourself.

Do your best to reduce your intake of sweet foods (that includes fruits like bananas).

And, most importantly, find ways to be happy.

For gray hair, I read that seaweeds are helpful.

Exercising daily is also helpful in maintaining a vibrant appearance.

 

All of my suggestions are based on observing how others who remain 'youthful' live their lives.

The Body Ecology Diet by Donna Gates is what I would consider the best boook I've read for finally ridding yourself of this stuff. Kombucha is not recommended as mushrooms are yeast producing. I've been on her "diet" for almost two weeks and have gotten stupendous results.

 

Just now seeing this. I'll look for the book at the library. Thank you.


In Topic: A 3-Day Regimen That Really Helps Me

Can hemp seeds be consumed instead of drinking fish oil? I don't mind eating salmon, yet I would rather eat hemp seeds instead of drinking fish oil. Thank you for sharing your 3-day regimen as it has confirmed some things for me concerning rice.
