Get This Fat Burning Hormone Without a Prescription
Your body produces its own “weapon of fat destruction.” More than helping you fit into your skinny jeans, it can also ward off Type 2 diabetes and boost your energy libido! However, most people don’t know how to harness this lifesaving hormone. Fortunately, it’s as simple as learning when to eat, and what not to drink…
Joan was scheduled for what was supposed to be a routine blood test, but it turned out to be one of the biggest turning points in her life. At 39 years old, she was striving to stay on top of her career. As an accountant, she worked long hours. Travel was a regular part of her work schedule and weekly meetings with clients were mandatory. Over time, she wasn’t able to keep up. Her energy had evaporated. That’s when she scheduled her doctor’s appointment.
Walking into the sterile environment of her family doctor, she wondered if it would help. “Would he find something wrong or suggest I choke down some sleeping pills or antidepressants?” she wondered. “Maybe I just need a vacation.”
A blood test revealed that Joan had “bad blood” courtesy of high blood sugar, which was 150mg/dL. Anything above 125mg/dL is considered Type 2 diabetes or, more accurately, “insulin resistance.” Normal is 85 to 95mg/dL. When blood sugar rises, the body is unable to efficiently produce its energizing molecule ATP. And when ATP function declines, so does energy and libido.
Best Defense against Bad Blood
One of the best defenses against bad blood is a hormone known as glucagon. This is the “I can’t wait to wear a bathing suit” hormone. When released by the pancreas it works double-time to control blood sugar, while activating fat metabolism and keeping heart disease and cancer at bay – two more diseases linked closely to high blood sugar.
As the natural enemy to Type 2 diabetes, glucagon is your No. 1 defense against the pandemic killer. More exciting, you don’t need a prescription to have it. As the most effective pharmacy in the world, your body can make glucagon if you adhere to two simple habits:
1. Eat only three meals per day, five hours apart
2. Abstain from sugary sodas and juice
Eating and Drinking Redefined
Forget “small meals throughout the day.” A good eating schedule to stick to is 7 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m. About 50 percent of your meals should consist of foods that do not give rise to bad blood – healthy fats from grass-fed beef, avocado, seeds, nuts, whole eggs, and coconut oil.
Foods that taste sweet like yoghurt and anything served out of a box or fast food window are off the list. Each of these crush glucagon production, while giving rise to “Thunder Thighs.”
Adding various spices like cayenne, cinnamon, cumin, turmeric and a plethora of herbs to your meals as discussed in my book, Over-The-Counter Natural Cures, can further help by making you feel more satiated to shut down snack cravings.
By consuming only three meals per day, you’re tapping into your innate ability to manufacture the lifesaving hormone. In contrast, when you divide your meals with snacks, your body responds with a fat-storing hormone known as insulin, which crushes glucagon production. As a result, weight gain ensues and blood sugar goes haywire … then everything goes downhill from there.
Safe Taste Certified: Watch Out For Protein Powders!
Watch what you drink! Studies show that even one sugary soda per day leads to overt obesity and diabetes in the years to come. Juice is no exception whatsoever and neither are sport drinks or protein powders loaded with sugar or artificial flavors!
Safe liquids are those that don’t choke out glucagon production such as water, organic coffee (real cream only) and tea such as yerba mate and Inca tea. You can even “splurge without suffering from the fat surge” by drinking Zevia Brand Soda and Our Daily Red Wine!
No Wimps Allowed!
Exercise can help glucagon production too. But it can’t be the kind of wimpy, no sweat exercise that might be fitting for a girl scout. You really have to get your heart rate up to at least 60% of its threshold during your routine ((220-age)*.60) and put your muscles under stress! Crossfit is best for this.
The good news is that if you hit this mark several times during your exercise bouts, you can go to the gym less. Typically, three times per week for the busy professional works great, as long as you are sticking to my eating frequency above. Just ask Joan.
The Energy and Libido Burst
Once she learned of her bad blood and its natural enemy glucagon, Joan took charge of her health by harnessing the power of her internal pharmacy. She stopped snacking and avoided the juices and sodas offered at her company meetings. In a matter of weeks, her thinking became clearer. Getting out of bed in the morning was easier than ever. Her energy rebounded, even in the bedroom.
At her follow-up appointment two weeks later, her blood sugar dropped to 95mg/dL. Today, she tackles her work day like she did in her 20s – with determination, focus, and enthusiasm that lasts all day long.
