Are Healthy Foods Making Me Fat? 
A recent study suggests that a low-glycemic load diet is more effective than
conventional approaches of eating less and exercising more.
If you’ve made a commitment to reading labels and eating healthier, you’re probably
just as confused as I was when I thought “Nutri-Grain”, “Natural”, “Added Vitamin
C” and “Healthy Whole Grains” were actually good for me. A burning desire to learn
why we continue to be one of the sickest and fattest countries on the planet have
led me to research from top experts claiming SUGAR is the culprit. But, if this
information is so readily available and weight loss results so tremendous, why aren’t
we being taught which foods turn to sugar and how to avoid them?
When the “low-fat” movement was introduced in the 60’s, we were told to remove
fat from our diets and replace them with “whole healthy grains”. Unfortunately,
this led to an increase in carbohydrate consumption, which skyrockets glucose and
releases the hormone insulin in our body. When you think of insulin, think of fat
storage, aging, and inflammation. I do whatever I can to avoid foods that raise
glucose and insulin. It took years of research and eliminating these foods from my
diet to see a night and day difference in my health and patients’ health.

Fitness Myth No. 3: An aerobic workout will boost your metabolism for hours
This statement is actually true — but the calorie burn is probably not nearly as
much as you think! While your metabolism will continue to burn at a slightly
higher rate after you finish an aerobic workout, the amount is not statistically
significant. In fact, it allows you to burn only about 20 extra calories for the day.
While there’s a little bit more of a metabolic boost after strength training, it’s still
marginal. It doesn’t really count towards your caloric burn. Research has found
that explosive “fast twitch” “glycogenic” exercises like our burst training will burn
the most calories in the shortest period of time. Check out our quick video and
give a couple examples of burst training using a treadmill and a arc trainer.
