Tips to Detox Your Body of Excess Sugar Most of us love sweets, especially cookies and chocolates. It is very common to share these treats during family events or with friends. However, we dont often think that this type of treat can be harmful to our health and we dont control it. When it comes to sugary foods or bakery products, its important to know that these foods are easily absorbed by your body and brought to your bloodstream much faster than normal sugars. This is where the release of insulin originates. When you eat foods with a high amount of refined sugar, you are giving your body practically zero nutrients. Its often said that these foods have empty calories because they do not provide you with the necessary energy for properly carrying out functions. When you want to take care of yourself and are conscious that a balanced diet is the best thing you can do in order to have good health, you should begin to eat good amounts of vegetables and whole grains that give you both nutrients and carbohydrates. Unlike refined sugar, these carbohydrates are released little by little in the blood and are used as fuel to provide the necessary energy so that all the functions of your b

This Is How Your Body Really Processes Sugar!

This is how your body really processes sugar! Once that sweet treat passes your lips, do you know what it actually gets up to in your bod? Truth be told, different types of sugars are broken down and processed in a variety of ways. Lets take a look When you eat fructose, it gets dumped straight on your liver. Your body has sugar transporters for both fructose and glucose, but as we have minimal fructose transporters ( GLUT-5 ), fructose cant be absorbed by most cells. This means it heads straight to your liver to be processed , putting a lot of extra strain on this one organ. When you consume too much fructose (more than your six to nine teaspoons a day) it promotes lipogenesis (AKA a buildup of fatty acid) and can even lead to fatty liver disease . Eek! This sugar is easily metabolised by the body and due to an abundance of glucose transporters ( GLUT-4 ), its absorbed by most cells and can then be used for energy. This process is triggered by an insulin response, so as long as we dont overdo it, as the body is able to metabolise glucose effectively, its safe to eat in moderation . Put simply, maltose is two glucose units joined together. Its not as common in foods as the other s Continue reading >>

    Sorry if this question has been asked a million times, but the search didn't get me what I was looking for.
    I've been on a TKD for 2 days now, and I'm not quite sure if I'm doing all of this correctly. I can't really monitor my diet down to the calorie due to my job, but I'm using common knowledge to steer clear of carbs (bread, rice, beans, fruit, etc, etc). I'm estimating that I've been consuming around 40-50 carbs a day with the bulk of it coming from my post-workout shake.
    From you keto pros out there, do you think I can achieve ketosis with my current carb intake, or should I restrict carbs even further? I'm starting to feel like I should restrict carbs totally save for my carb up day at the end of the week ala the CKD.
    All I all I got the basics down, but I think I need a little more guidance. Any help would be much appreciated.

What is BASAL BODY? What does BASAL BODY mean? BASAL BODY meaning - BASAL BODY definition - BASAL BODY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. A basal body (synonymous with basal granule, kinetosome, and in older cytological literature with blepharoplast) is a protein structure found at the base of a eukaryotic undulipodium (cilium or flagellum). It is formed from a centriole and several additional protein structures, and is, essentially, a modified centriole. Basal body serves as a nucleation site for the growth of the axoneme microtubules. Centrioles, from which basal bodies are derived, act as anchoring sites for proteins that in turn anchor microtubules, and are known as the microtubule organizing center (MTOC). These microtubules provide structure and facilitate movement of vesicles and organelles within many eukaryotic cells. Cilia and basal bodies form during quiescence or the G1 phase of the cell cycle. Before the cell enters G1 phase, i.e. before the formation of the cilium, the mother centriole serves as a component of the centrosome. In cells that are destined to have only one primary cilium mother centr

How Does The Body Process Glucose?

Chewing and swallowing begins the digestive process of breaking down into glucose the starches and large sugar molecules in the foods we eat. Enzymes in the mouth and intestines complete the breakdown with the help of the pancreas, a gland located behind the stomach and next to the small intestine that helps the body with the absorption and digestion of food. The pancreas produces hormones such as insulin, glucagon, and somatostatin that regulate the nutrients and energy your body uses. These hormones help the bodys cells to absorb glucose through the bloodstream. How can I reduce the harmful effects of simple sugars?

    I am writing to tell you what an incredible impact these methods had on my life! I have had type 2 diabetes for 27 years. For me, the worst part of this horrible disease is the severe pain I constantly get in my feet. The pain is so bad that I avoid standing and walking as much as possible. I've got to tell you that within the first month, my feet stopped hurting altogether and I can now walk totally pain free.
    Believe it or not, I even danced at my niece's wedding last month, something I have not done in a many years. I've been following the book for six months now and my blood sugar is well within normal range. I feel great!
    I recommend you use the Type 2 Diabetes Destroyer to naturally reverse your diabetes.

What Happens To Your Body An Hour After Eating Sugar?

What happens to your body an hour after eating sugar? Humans are programmed to love sugar - this is what the substance does to our bodies Sugar is an important and popular part of our daily diet. Along with starch, it falls within the carbohydrate group as it consists of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms and acts as fuel for the body. In fact, carbohydrates are our main source of energy, converted by the body to power our cells and keep us alive and growing. However, many of us are overindulging in the white stuff, with the average adult consuming approximately 63 grams (2.2 ounces), nearly 16 teaspoons, of sugar each day. Thats over twice the recommended daily intake. The main attraction to sugar, for both humans and animals, is its sweet taste. In nature, this is a useful indication of which foods are safe to eat, as poisonous fruits and plants tend to be sour or bitter, but in the modern world of processed foods and fizzy drinks, sweetness is mainly associated with pleasure. As a result, sugar is added to many of the foods we consume each day to artificially boost the flavour or texture, or act as a preservative by hindering the growth of bacteria. This may be good news for our Continue reading >>

    Hi CT,
    I'm on a low carb diet and I just added 20 minutes of fasted carido in the morning (fast walking on an incline). I take 10 gram of BCAA when I wake up, just before the cardio.
    By the end of the cardio session, I can smell an ammonia odor or it can even smell like cat pee. I did search on google and found it may be caused by Amico Acid and protein breakdown or the low carb diet.
    In any case, I want to know if it's happening because I'm in a catabolic state and if my body is breaking down my muscle for energy. It never happen with weight lifting, in the evening.

    You are probably in a catabolic state. Any diet that is deficient in energetic nutrients (carbs or fat) can become catabolic if a lot of training is being performed.

    How is your fat intake? A lot of people who use a low carbs diet consume too little fat. Since they lack a dietary energy source, they will often breakdown amino acids for energy.

    Around 2800-3000 calorie a day, can be a little bit more or less. I did not count carbs and calorie from veggie (broccoli and spinach)
    Fat: 204 gram (60% of cal)
    Protein: 268 gram (36% of cal) (220 gram from protein and 50 gram from BCAA and I did count 0 calorie from BCAA)
    Carbs: 5 gram (3% of cal)
    I only added cardio this week, hopefully not much harm has been done.

    The only thing I drink before/while doing the cardio session in the morning is 10 gram of BCAA in 16 once of water
