Sugar and The Program
Fitness Expert Phil Kaplan answers
an important question about blood sugar, diabetes, and an
I have diabetes and am 50 pounds overweight. I've tried
every diet in the world. You're the first one who has
ever made sense to me. I was wondering if your Answer
Program deals with diabetes. I want to lose weight and
tone up plus keep my sugar in check. I heard you speak
about insulin when you were discussing the effect fat free
cookies have on blood sugar. I wondered if this could
finally be what I'm looking for. I want to be healthy.
Can you help?
While I wouldn't say my Answer Program "deals" with
diabetes, it does address blood sugar. The way that
it will teach you to eat (Supportive Nutrition) is not only
optimal for diabetics, but is probably more essential to anyone
with hyperglycemia than it is to people with normal blood
sugar levels. The combination of the exercise and nutrition
you'll learn in the program have a blood sugar stabilizing
effect provided the pancreas is functioning properly.
Some diabetics do produce enough insulin but are somewhat
resistant to the insulin they produce where others have insufficient
insulin output. I've found many cases of diabetes to
have been induced over time by infrequent eating, intake
of simple sugars in erratic amounts for a number of years,
or bouts with dieting. In a great many of those cases,
people have contacted me after going through my programs and
told me they experienced fantastic improvements. I've
had "diabetics" claim to be "cured."
I've had doctors call me amazed by the improvements in their
diabetic patients. If you go to my web site and look
at the actual photos (under the TRANSFORM!
program) of Wayne, he was one of those people! He's
diabetic. His doctor was amazed by the improvement.
you likely heard me referring to was the fact that so many
people in search of weight loss use "fat free" as
a buying signal. Fat free ice cream, cookies, cakes,
and pastries often have simple sugars
as their primary ingredient. When someone looking to
lose weight ingests a simple sugar (even if it's in a fat-free
cookie), all of that sugar gets absorbed into the bloodstream
very quickly bringing a condition, even in non-diabetic people,
of momentary hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). The pancreas
in the non-diabetic then increases insulin output to transport
all of the "extra" sugar into the muscles and liver
to be stored. In order, however, for the pancreas to
up its production of insulin, it backs off on its production
of another hormone, glucagon. Glucagon is the hormone
that releases fat. You can see a very close link,
therefore, between blood sugar and the body's ability to access
My programs encourage you to avoid
simple sugars and to avoid eating simple or complex carbs
by themselves. When complex carbs are consumed in the presence
of protein and fibers, the rush of sugars into the bloodstream
is slowed resulting in a gradual glucose release and preventing
that sudden blood sugar spike that diabetics must avoid.
don't present the program(s) as a cure, but rather as an education.
With this education you'll be far better prepared to deal
with the disease as well as to reshape a new, healthier body.
I am fully confident in suggesting you give either TRANSFORM!
or the Answer program a try (with your doctor's OK of course).
Let me know how it works out.
