Have you ever wondered why some people seem to be able to eat almost anything they like, and never have to worry about belly fat or fat around their hips and thighs? Are they exceptionally blessed, or do they secretly do something to keep the fat away? If they are secretly doing something, wouldn’t you want to know about it so you can also get that toned body you truly desire?

Actually, some people are born with a genetic makeup that helps them burn fat quickly. They have a high metabolism (the chemical processes that convert food into energy.) Thus, they can eat whatever they like and never grow fat. For the rest of us (a good MAJORITY of us,) access to information (and more importantly, application) like this can make the difference between burning fat effortlessly and struggling to keep fit.

Armed with this information, you can choose to lower your metabolism, or make a conscious decision to force your metabolism to function at optimum capacity. And today you are going to learn one of the most factors that can lead to a sustained increase in metabolism.

Hormonal imbalance

A prolonged state of hormonal imbalance is one of the reasons why you have accumulated body fat that is difficult to control. Hormones, by the way, are chemical substances produced (by cells or glands in the body) and sent out to stimulate or help control how the cells and organs of the other body parts work. Hormones can have a wide range of effects on the body. Like causing mood swings, regulating the metabolism, controlling the reproductive cycle, inducing hunger and cravings, and stimulating or inhibiting growth, as in the case of childbirth or menopause.

Today we are concerned with the hormones that play an important role in the determination of the metabolism. And the good news is that, unlike some other hormones, you can directly control the hormones that make you fat.

Insulin

The job of insulin in the body is to signal the fat cells in the body to clean up the excess glucose (or blood sugar) in the blood, convert it into fat, and store it for future energy needs. So, anytime you eat, insulin is produced by the pancreas in response to your rising blood sugar. The amount of insulin generated is dependent on what you eat and how much you eat.

If your diet is high in simple carbohydrates (like table sugar, cakes and white flour products, fruit juices, soft drinks, rice, potato, and bread,) this means that you are dumping large amounts of glucose into your bloodstream. All the excess sugar is thus collected and stored away, making the person get fatter. As the years go by, the body gets used to high insulin signals and the accumulation of blood sugar.

And the problem is that the more you put sugar in your bloodstream, the harder the pancreas needs to work to pump out enough insulin to mop up the excess glucose. What happens when you constantly load your system with carbohydrates (simple carbohydrates especially) is that the fat cells begin to ignore the insulin, and the body would need even more insulin to keep removing the sugar from the blood. This leads to a state of insulin resistance by the cells, and can lead to diabetes and some chronic illnesses.

insulin-and-glucagon

Glucagon

While all of this is going on, the body’s glucagon level drops. Glucagon is the hormone that does the exact opposite of what insulin does. It encourages fat the cells to give up their fat and produce energy (instead of storing them.) And this is what you want to achieve as you seek to lose weight. Just remember that if your insulin level is high, glucagon is underproduced.

So, to maintain a balance, promote health, and make for natural fat-burning, you have to avoid eating lots of carbohydrates (mostly simple carbohydrates.) This will make you retain maximum sensitivity to insulin production, and help maintain the right glucagon levels that help you burn fat.

The bottom line is that, when you consume too many simple sugars, you literally switch off your body’s fat-burning mechanism. Continue in this trend, and you could develop insulin resistance and weaken your ability to burn fat. And to get things back to normal, you have to cut down on the simple carbohydrates and allow your body to rebalance itself. When this happens, you increase your metabolism and burn fat naturally.

Cortisol

Cortisol is another of the hormone that you want to keep under control if you wish to keep your metabolism high. Cortisol is also called the stress hormone because it is released into the bloodstream when you are feeling stressed. It’s job, just like insulin is to instruct the fat cells to store fat. Interestingly, the instructions have more effect on the fat cells found in the abdomen.

This means that raised cortisol levels may be one of the major contributing factors to increased belly fat. But more worrisome is its effect on overall health. Cortisol promotes the accumulation of fat in the liver and this is one of the reasons responsible for insulin resistance.

cortisol-level

Another downside to cortisol production is that it inhibits the production of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a naturally occurring chemical in the brain, that is partly responsible for regulating brain functions like appetite, the mood, sleep, and memory. When you are stressed, your serotonin levels drop, while cortisol level increases, making you crave sugary foods to relax you and make you content. Unfortunately, these foods only increase blood sugar and insulin.

The best way to escape this cycle is to manage the stress in your life. Stress comes in many forms (emotional stress, family stress, social stress, change stress, chemical stress, environmental stress, etc.) and you want to avoid as much of them as possible. Stress management is one important factor when trying to control body fat. If you can’t get a hold on stress, the hormones get skewed, resulting to excess fat accumulation.

Another way to combat cortisol accumulation is to boost your testosterone (an important hormone that does so many good things, including turning fat into muscle, and helping us to positively handle stress) by exercising regularly. When you do strenuous exercise, you reduce the production of cortisol and encourage muscle tissue production. This helps to block the storage of fat and encourage fat burning. In fact, excessive cortisol levels can promote the breakdown of muscle tissue. So it’s one against the other, and you want to engage in activities that keep your cortisol level as low as possible.

In summary, hormones play a major role in weight regulation. Insulin needs to kept at a steady level by reducing consumption of simple carbohydrates. This increases glucagon levels and results in fat-burning. At the same token, reduce stress in your life, and exercise regularly to reduce cortisol and increase muscle formation. These simple changes balance the hormones and increase metabolism. Our weight management program, clean 9 offers one of best ways to balance the hormones and set the foundation for effective weight loss and healthy living.

Before I dive into this article, I want to reiterate the importance of food and eating when you are looking to burn fat, the healthy and smart way. When you eat less or starve yourself in a bid to lose weight, your body adapts by becoming amazingly good at making the most of whatever food it receives. It holds on tightly to stored fat and begins breaking down muscles to get needed energy.

This loss of muscle mass slows down your metabolism and makes it difficult to lose weight (because, the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn naturally even when you are not active.) Also, when you restrict food intake, you become irritable, uncomfortable and stressed-up. This kind of stress can cause a rise in cortisol and increase the rate at which you store visceral fat.

I’m sure you are familiar with our regular eating pattern. You are expected to eat 3 times a day. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Now, I’m asking that you eat more times because, when you eat more times, it gives your body the opportunity to absorb nutrients more efficiently.

If you are used to eating at regular intervals, you must have noticed that you always get hungry at about the same time of the day, irrespective of whether the previous meal was light or heavy. What happens is that the body is sensitive to routines, and also, it can only handle as much food at one sitting and eliminate or store the excess nutrients.

And according to nutritional experts, when you eat the same amount of calories and spread them (in smaller, manageable portions for the body) throughout the day, it raises the body’s ability to digest, absorb, and dispose of the ingested nutrients. This process of making the body get used to smaller, manageable portions can result in having as much as 10% more calories being burned.

These facts are backed by practical case studies where people who eat 6 times daily show considerably lower levels of low-density-lipoprotein (LDL or bad cholesterol that blocks the arteries) as opposed to people that eat 3 times.

Additionally, people that eat more than 3 times (in small portions) have more stable carbohydrate and fat oxidization levels and thus, less prone to getting fat. Even Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston (at 47 and looking much younger) attributes her slim body figure to eating small portions regularly during the day, rather than larger meals at traditional times. She says she survives on five meals a day.

Another benefit of this eating pattern is that it prevents long stretches of starvation. What most people do (due to being busy or just wanting to “lose weight”) is that they take breakfast and eat nothing until dinner. At dinner, they unconsciously eat more to make up for the time that they went without food. This is a bad eating habit that only makes the metabolism to under-function (and slow down the fat burning process.)

The key to eating 6 times a day

When we recommend eating 6 times in a day, you want to make sure you continue to give your body “small, manageable portions of nutrients.” The key is to eat 6 small meals, instead of 3 large ones. What I used to do when I started applying this formula was to use smaller plates when I want to eat. The plate gets full quicker and I would discipline myself not to go for another portion. If you do this over time, you will get used to the 6-meals-a-day strategy and discipline yourself to consume only food that your body needs to the moment.

Whether you return to the 3-meals-a-day (if you do, I recommend you take healthy snacks in-between meals to maintain your metabolism) routine, the most important thing is that you get used to consuming only “small, manageable portions of nutrients,” which is what your body really needs. At first, you may have a hard time adjusting to this routine. You may keep feeling hungry in-between meals because you may be used to consuming enormous meals. But, you don’t have to worry. Try drinking plenty of water, and with time your stomach muscle will build up and adjust accordingly.

In summary, make sure you begin your day with a well-balanced breakfast that energizes you and kick-starts your metabolism for the day (after going for about 12 hours through the night without food. Remember that food is good for your body.) Keep this metabolism active by introducing food to your body throughout the day (like Jennifer Aniston does) in small, manageable portions. And ensure your meals are balanced, with a good measure of water that keeps you hydrated and at optimal capacity to naturally burn fat. If you think her 47-year-old, well-toned body is impossible to achieve, see what Nigerian women are achieving with very little effort.

Detail Of Overweight Woman

Do you have those stubborn, ugly and bulging belly fat and love handles that will not let you wear a jean and fitted T-shirt like you used to do when you were in your teens? Are you always feeling weak and lacking the stamina and strength to perform activities? Would you like to learn how to easily, quickly, cheaply and naturally get rid of those unsightly belly fat and love handles and transform yourself into the fit, trim, and healthy body shape you’ve always wanted? Then pay attention to every word on this page.

I’m sure you don’t like the sound and effect of the phrase “belly fat,” but what about “love handles,” does it sound appealing? Before you answer, what do these terms really mean?

Belly Fat – Definition

The term belly fat basically refers to fat that builds up around the midsection of the body. There are 3 types of body fat. Triglycerides – the most prominent body fat that circulates in the bloodstream. Subcutaneous fat – the fat that lies directly underneath the skin, between the skin and the wall of the abdomen. Visceral fat – belly fat, and the most dangerous.

types of body fat

One of the things that make it dangerous is that it hides under the stomach (abdominal) muscles, pushing them too close to the internal organs and making it possible for the internal organs to feed on it. What this means, in a nutshell, is that the more visceral fat your body produces, the more your internal organs which greatly control your metabolism, pulls fat from that region for energy. And this is dangerous to your health.

From the diagram above, subcutaneous fat is the out-most layer of fat that resides on the skin, the fat you can pinch with your fingers. This layer of fat sits on top of the abdominal muscle tissue. Below the abdominal tissue, where you cannot pinch, is where you have the visceral fat. The more subcutaneous fat you can pinch with your fingers, the more visceral (and dangerous) fat you have underneath your abdominal muscles.

Love Handles – Definition

love-handles

This is the excess subcutaneous fat that forms around the sides of the waistline and hangs down from the back and sides of the stomach. Why they have such an exciting and appealing name, I don’t know, but I do know that there’s nothing “loving” about them.

Why you don’t need belly fat and love handles

Latest scientific research reveals that fat cells, whether subcutaneous or visceral are metabolically active and produce hormones and chemicals that can negatively impact the organs of the body. At an ideal body weight, these hormones and chemicals are healthy to the body. They regulate insulin, appetite, and even help to burn stored fat.

The more and larger the fat cells, the more overweight the person gets, and underneath, the more chemicals and hormones they produce that can eventually lead to the risk of diseases like diabetes, stroke, heart attack, and cancers. And remember, the more the visceral fat, the more the risk, because they are too close to the internal organs (especially the liver) and can negatively impact on the body’s entire system. And by extension, the more or fatter your belly fat and love handles, the more difficult it is to tone them down. But not to worry, there are simple things you can do, starting today.

The 7 stupidly simple killer strategy

There are tons of ways to work on your belly fat and love handles so that you cut down on the visceral fat build up and reduce all the other types of fat as well. But today I will show you 7 very simple things you can do to achieve this. You might be used to some of these strategies and think you have overheard them. But the truth is that they have always worked. And will continue to work. Don’t underestimate their “simpleness!”

1. Jump-start your metabolism

If you are the type that thinks you can lose weight when you avoid meals, it’s time to have a rethink. Starving yourself doesn’t make you lose weight. It actually makes you gain weight in the long run because your body slows down your metabolism, stops burning fat and keeps storing them. What you want is to burn and NOT store fat. You can trick your body into doing this (activating the fat-burning mode) by making sure you don’t skip meals, especially your breakfast. When you eat breakfast early enough in the day, your body immediately starts the chemical processes that break down the food and work on fat all through the day.

2. Change your diet and eating pattern

To help you get rid of belly fat and love handles, eat regular, nutritionally-balanced small meals at regular intervals. Eat within the same time every day. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat healthy proteins and good fats. Eat fiber rich foods and whole grains. Cut down drastically on processed and refined foods that stuff you up with calories. Get small plates and eat 5 or 6 times per day instead of 3 large meals.

3. Drink more water

Lack of water can put your body into a stress-mood. A glass of water first thing in the morning also helps jump-start your metabolism. At times you feel like you are hungry, it might just be water your body needs. So make it a habit of drinking enough water. It also helps cleanse your system of toxins and wastes that cause fat. Drink between 6 – 8 glasses daily and check your urine, if it is more yellow, you need more water. At the same time, avoid alcohol, sugary drinks, diet drinks, and carbonated beverages. They are harmful and make you store fat.

4. Get adequate and better sleep

If you stay up too late every other night, your body overproduces a chemical called cortisol, and another one called ghrelin. These chemicals make you add visceral fat. Developing a healthy sleeping pattern (about 7 -8 hours per night) is very important as far as weight loss is concerned. When you are supposed to sleep, make sure you get that sleep without interruptions. It will help you burn stubborn belly fat and love handles and help you effectively combat stress.

5. Manage stress

Stress from work, family issues, trauma, or any other form of excessive and unnecessary worry makes your body release cortisol. And you know what that causes? Belly fat, love handles, plus a bunch of health issues. So, you want to take out time, identify the things that make you stressed out and take appropriate steps to eliminate them. Exercise is another good way to combating stress.

6. Exercise

exercise

Aerobic exercises like jogging, running, skipping, swimming, and walking that get your heart rate up, is a great way to burn calories and speed up your metabolism, burn fat and relieve stress. You don’t have to engage in all of them. Pick any kind of exercise you enjoy doing and engage in it. You don’t have to exercise every day. 10 or 20 minutes of exercise that really gets your heart rate up, done 2 or 3 times per week can go a long way to helping you lose those unsightly bulges.

7. Take nutritional supplements

More often than not it’s hard to get all the essential nutrients the body needs from the foods we eat these days. Supplements like Vitamin C supplement can help manage your cortisol level and regulate stress. The best approach, however, would be to take supplements that contain a good number of the essential nutrients the body needs. This is very important considering the type of foods and lifestyle choices we are exposed to everyday. A good place to start would be the 9 days weight loss therapy. It contains essential supplements that are natural and beneficial to the body in terms of burning belly fat and love handles.

Bonus Tip: None of these strategies would work for you if you are not motivated and disciplined enough to keep at it until the bulges begin to melt. So I advise that you create and develop a personal routine that ensures you incorporate as many of these tips into your schedule and keep at it until the bulges disappear.

If you want to speed things up and learn new, exciting and proven ways to keep yourself highly motivated and disciplined to finally say goodbye to ugly belly fat and love handles, the 9 days NATURAL weight loss miracle is your best bet. It helps you effectively burn 5 – 10 kg of fat (including belly fat and love handles) within 9 days.

If you have tried repeatedly to figure out if there is a simple formula you could apply, and come out at the other end healthier, fitter, trimmer and full of life, this article will tell you exactly what you have to do. You must have tried several options out there, but it seems like you always end up not achieving any appreciable health results. And it seems like no matter what you try, you just can’t seem to discover the secret to excellent health. At the end of this article, you are going to have at your fingertips everything that guarantees the healthiest possible lifestyle.

The human body is made up of about 78 different organs. I’m sure you are aware of the brain, the skin, the lungs, the heart and the rest of them. Each organ is a collection of millions of cells which group together to perform a specific body function. Every cell in an organ is highly specialized to assist in the overall functions of that particular organ, and the body in general. To perform their duties better, the body organs come together to form systems. Some of the body systems are the cardiovascular system, the circulatory system, the muscular system, the respiratory system, and the reproductive system. But today we are more concerned about the digestive system.

How The Digestive System Affects Your Overall Health

The immune system is directly related to the functioning of the intestines as well the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food during digestion. If your digestive system is functioning properly, your mind and your entire body work in tandem and you feel happy and in a good mood, the reverse is the case if you have a poor functioning digestive system.

When you eat food, your body extracts the nutrients to fuel the body so that it maintains a healthy state. It is the job of the digestive system to extract these nutrients from the foods you eat and absorb and assimilate them into your body. This process is difficult to achieve if the digestive system is not healthy enough. An unhealthy digestive system stores and retains waste and harmful toxins that the body is supposed to naturally dispose.

In the 1930s, Dr. John Tilden in his book Toxaemia explained and presented the concept that toxins were the major and only cause of diseases. According to the doctor, the body is designed to naturally flush out toxins (foreign and harmful materials) but, due to a number of factors, this natural cleansing process is difficult to achieve, and the body gets exposed to a build up of these toxins and the resultant effect of “poisoning” of the body systems.

He carried out extensive research and concluded that, if you can deal with toxaemia, you won’t age anywhere as quickly as you normally would and you won’t go through all the aches, pains and illnesses that so many people have to go through. And this is so true because, if you engage in preventive health habits, you can dramatically reduce the chances of chronic diseases, illness and degeneration of your body cells. But when you expose your body to poisonous substances, Dr. Tilden stated that it becomes difficult to get back to a state of perfect health.

sick colon

Dr. Kellogg, the famous surgeon and founder of Kelloggs corn flakes also believed that the colon (which is inside the digestive system) could be the origin of most health problems, hence his creation of a brand cereal to help bowel function. He maintained that 90 percent of the diseases are due to an improperly functioning colon.

One of the major problems of a poor functioning colon is constipation. The word constipation is derived from derived from the latin word “constipatis” which means repressed, inhibited, to press or crowd together, to pack or to cram. Common sense tells us that if we retain the contents of our colon, the results will be excess weight gain, disfigurement, and diseases of the colon. All sick people have bowel trouble. All sick people are tired, worn out and weighed down with toxins. And there is no better, more effective way to stay healthy and avoid illness and disease than to do what is necessary to take care of your digestive system.

It is very important that you get your colon into proper functioning condition. If you can’t do this, all other therapies, treatments, vitamins, or any other aid will fall short of their potential benefit. The body’s waste disposal system must work properly, otherwise the body will continue to soak up its own decaying waste, which encourages disease processes and robs the body of vitality and the ability to function optimally. So all congestion and toxins must be removed and it must begin with cleansing of the bowel.

 

healthy-colon-toxic-colon

Constipation is one of the most frequent digestive system problems people encounter today. A constipated system is one in which the transition time of toxic waste is slow. The longer the transition time, the longer the toxic waste matter sits in the colon, which allows them to decay, ferment and possibly be reabsorbed into the body. The longer the body is exposed to fermenting food in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease, and even with one bowel movement per day you will still have at least 3 meals worth of waste matter putrefying or fermenting in the colon at all times. People having fewer bowel movements are thus harbouring a potentially fertile breeding ground for serious diseases. Infrequent or poor quality bowel movement over an extended period of time may be and will be very hazardous to your health.

Proper colon cleansing removes mucoid plaque (harmful mucus-like material and food residue that coats the gastrointestinal tract of most people) from the colon. Even a thin layer of mucoid plaque weakens the body. Our colon is designed to push out and remove mucoid plaque, but due to stress, diet and some other factors, most of us build up hardened layers of mucoid plaque. When this occurs, the next best thing to do is to embark on a proper colon cleansing process to help you break down and flush out the accumulated mucoid plaque.

How to tell if your colon needs cleansing

toxic stress cycle

When undigested food putrefies in the stomach, it produces toxins in the colon. If the person becomes constipated, more toxins travel and congest the liver through intestinal wall. The main job of the liver is to filter blood and neutralize toxic matters. If the liver gets congested and is unable to neutralize the toxins, they remain in the liver, and some of them are recycled and sent to the kidneys, lung and the skin to be excreted. Some gain access into the bloodstream, the heart and the muscles. If the toxins are not removed, they will affect the body’s ability to produce energy, slow down the digestion process, and the vicious cycle continues.

Here are some of the symptoms of a blocked or unhealthy colon – the symptoms include constipation (include irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhea,) weight gain, obesity, stinky gas, pain in the joints, frequent illness, colds, fatigue, cancer, arthritis, heartburn, migraines, poor sleep, diabetes, body odour, bad breath, unexplained lower back pain, and many others. To get your colon back and ensure you not only get back a healthy digestive system but a healthier body that naturally fights off diseases, you have to embark on healthy living harbits.

Healthy Tips That Improve Your Digestive System

The way you live and eat is very important and has a direct impact on your digestive system and how well it functions. If you take the proper steps to improve your digestive health, your digestive system will function more efficiently, and this will ultimately improve your overall health, and here are 8 important tips to guide you.

1. Chew your food properly

If you are the type that rushes through meals and find it time-wasting to chew food, you need to take this seriously. Proper food chewing is crucial for proper digestion. The more you break down food in your mouth, the faster and easier it is for your digestive system to absorb the nutrients from the food. When you chew food, it gives your stomach good time to prepare for the food and your brain is signaled to inform you not to over-eat (a condition that leads to clogging of the intestines.)

2. Eat plenty of fibre

Fibre is very important to the digestive system because it helps to effectively move food through your intestines. There are two types of fibre – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre (like beans, oat cereals and oranges) soak up water and help to prevent stool from being too watery. Insoluble fibre (like wheat, most vegetables, corn and nuts) help to add bulk to stool. When you include a good portion of fibre in your diet, your body is able to easily break down fatty foods, which are usually hard to digest.

3. Drink enough water

When you drink enough water, it helps your digestive system to dissolve fat and soluble fibre. This makes it easier for food to pass through your inytestines. Too little water will lead to harder stool that is difficult to be flushed through the colon.

4. Exercise regularly

Exercise increases the flow of blood through your organs and engages the muscles intestinal muscles. This is very important because the walls of the colon need to contract when passing out waste, and exercises tone up these muscles to function efficiently. Any form of execise like jogging, walking, etc., keeps food moving through the digestive system.

5. Manage stress properly

stres

Your body’s entire systems are sensitive to your moods. The digestive system knows when you are stressed up and stops functioning optimally any time your brain signals the body that you are not in a good mood. Stress can thus lead to digestive problems like irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers and excessive eating. What you want to do is relax more, engage in stress-relieving exercises, sleep well, and take life easy.

6. Eat warm foods

Too much cold food and drinks can impair the functioning of the spleen (an important organ of the immune system.) The spleen dislikes cold, and the body’s digestive enzymes need some warmth to be able to properly break down food.

7. Drink less alcohol

Excessive alcohol consumption leads to heartburn, liver problems and diarrhea. It also negatively affects the functioning of the digestive system. When you take alcohol, your body must digest and break down the alcohol. This means that the digestive system’s natural job of digesting your food is suspended, and you have a build up of undigested food particle in your stomach.

8. Lose weight

There are so many health implications of being overweight. One of them is that the valve between the stomach and esophagus sometimes won’t close completely. This allows stomach acid to flow back into the esophagus. If your weight is under control, you ease this build up of pressure and allow your digestive system to function properly.

These are some of the simple things you can do today to ensure your colon (digestive system) is clean, safe, functioning optimally, and allows you to enjoy the best-possible health.

aloe vera

Experts in the medical field are gradually warming up to the fact (and rightfully so) that natural supplementation can indeed help reverse conditions like diabetes. An example is the result of the findings reported in the online library Wiley.com review article of March 23, 2016.

According to the study, supplementation with aloe vera may help improve HbA1c levels (a measure of glucose control over the previous 2 –3 months) in people with Type 2 diabetes and reduce fasting plasma glucose levels in those with prediabetes.

HbA1c, otherwise known as hemoglobin A1C or glycosylated hemoglobin, is an indicator of a person’s blood glucose control over the previous 2 – 3 months. Hemoglobin is the protein in our red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues. And while they perform this function, the glucose in the bloodstream can bind to the hemoglobin molecules and impair their functions. Which is one of the reasons why diabetics are prone to eye, kidney and nerve diseases.

Prediabetes is the stage where you have your blood glucose levels elevated, but not yet up to the diabetic range. This patient is said to have Impaired Fasting Glucose (IFG) or Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT). To detect if you are prediabetic, you may have to run either a Fasting Plasma Glucose Test (FPG) or an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). But you may want to start by checking your Body Mass Index (BMI).

This is an internationally accepted formula for measuring overweight individuals, and it is a product of your overall weight and height. The BMI is defined as the body weight in kilograms(kg) divided by the square of your height in meters (m).

Mathematically expressed thus:

Body Weight in kg ÷ Height in m2

So if you want to know your BMI, you should weigh yourself on a scale and record your weight in Kilograms.

Then, take a tape calibrated in meters and ask someone to help measure your height, then also record it in meters.

Assuming you weigh 85kg, and your height is 1.95 meters, this is how you calculate it.

Multiply your height by itself, i.e 1.95m x 1.95m = 3.80(m2). Then use this height result to divide your weight.

In this example your weight is 85kg (i.e. 85kg ÷ 3.80m2 = 22.37)

According to proven and acceptable Health Standards…

Normal Weight BMI range is 20 – 25kg/m2

Over-Weight BMI range is 25 – 29.9Kg/m2

Obesity BMI range is anything greater than 30kg/m2

From the above example, a woman can weigh 85kg and still be normal and not over-weight considering that she is tall, whereas another shorter woman with the same 85kg may be overweight. This measurement is thus important, as studies have also shown that people with blood glucose levels in the prediabetes range go on to develop Type 2 diabetes within 10 years. Plus the condition also raises the risk of having a heart attack or stroke by as much as 50%.

How does aloe vera help out?

Before we get into that, let’s discuss aloe vera briefly. This plant has been used for thousands of years as a form of herbal medicine and is still relevant today as you may notice it is being incorporated in so many health care and personal products.

This shouldn’t be surprising as aloe vera possesses great curative and nutritive properties that include pain inhibition, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties, healing of the nervous, muscular and body tissues, replacing the skin cells and clearing blood clots, antibiotic properties, cell regeneration, energizer, digestive tract enhancement, detoxification, skin re-hydration, nutritional properties, and much more.

Back to our research study:

The researchers conducted a meta-analysis (an analysis of data from several studies) to evaluate the effect of aloe vera on blood sugar levels. Eight random clinical trials were done, and it included a total of 470 people with Type 2 diabetes and prediabetes. They set out to find out the effect of aloe vera on blood sugar versus the placebo effect (inactive treatment) or no treatment.

At the end of the research period, when they compared the difference between the final HbA1c and fasting plasma glucose values, of the treatment group and the control group, the result was that the aloe vera supplementation reduced HbA1c and slightly lowered fasting plasma glucose levels in the people with Type 2 diabetes. And in the prediabetics, aloe vera supplementation did not increase their HbA1c, and it reduced their fasting plasma glucose levels.

The research thus concluded that: “The current evidence suggests a possible effect of aloe vera on glycemic (blood sugar) control in prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes,”

“However,” they concluded, “given the poor quality of the limited evidence available, and the considerable heterogeneity seen in the study results, well-designed, well-powered randomized controlled trials using standardized preparations are needed to better quantify any beneficial effects and their clinical relevance. Various components of Aloe vera and appropriate dosage should be further explored. HbA1c and postprandial glucose should be commonly assessed and reported. Long-term benefit and safety remains to be determined.”

And this is where I want to differ.

Aloe vera is a miracle plant, no doubt about that, but what do you say when evidence abound that clinically tested aloe vera gel (in combination with some other equally effective herbal supplements) have been used to reverse Type 2 diabetes, and assist greatly in the treatment of the other types of diabetes like these testimonies outline:

“I sent in my testimony 3months ago about the efficacy of GLUCOFIT. I finished the 30 days therapy Ending of November 2015.I have monitored my sugar level daily since that time and I am happy to let you know that I am now diabetes free. My FBS has been stable at 4.1mmol since November. Thank you so much for making these Supplements available.” – Omotoyosi

“My name is Hamisu from Kano. I waited for 5months before sending in this testimony just to be sure that I am indeed totally free from diabetes. I engaged GLUCOFIT, VITOFIT and Fit One. And this is 5 months now. I have been free. My sugar level has stabilized at 4.3mmol to 4.9mmol. My protruded tommy is almost flat. These forever living products are working wonders. I have since been referring all my diabetic friends to you. Thank you” – Hamisu.

“I bought GLUCOFIT and VITOFIT in October 2015. At that time my blood sugar was 21mmol and I had lost every sexual urge. My manhood had practically stopped working. I took your supplements for 30days. By the tenth day my blood sugar had gone down to 7.3 mmol. By October ending I tested and it was 4.2mmol. The most amazing part of the whole thing was that I became sexually active again and my wife is so thankful to God for using you and these supplements to restore me back to sound health. I am now referring people to you. Thank you very very much.” – Linus from Calabar.

“Good afternoon sir. I am sending in this report to let you know that your GlucoFit works. I was a little bit disappointed when I saw that they are forever living products. But I decided to try it as you advised and here I am 3weeks after usage my blood sugar dropped from 17mmol to 6.8mmol . Well I am ordering for another pack because of this tremendous improvement even though you said I won’t need more than a pack. Thanks for making GlucoFit available” – C. C. Umor. Porthacourt.

“Good afternoon sir. I must thank you for the complimentary products you sent to me. I am deeply grateful. I bought a pack of Glucofit for my mother 2weeks ago and I must say that the product is improving her condition. Her sugar level was 14.3mmol before she commenced the GlucoFit therapy. As I am sending this sms to, her sugar level has dropped to 8.1mmol. This improvement is remarkable. I must also add that her fingers that used to shake uncontrollably are now stable. I am certain that by the time she is through with the 30days usage, her condition would have improved again. Thank for this job well done.” – AYO ADE. Lagos, NIGERIA.

Glucofit is my number 1 recommendation for prediabetes, Type 2 diabetes, Type 1 diabetes (management) and the other types of diabetes. You can continue with your regular medication, but if you want the natural approach to getting your sugar levels back to normal in the shortest time, you need to get Glucofit. It is jam-packed with aloe vera and contains a bunch of other natural herbs that will quickly re-set your metabolism. Click here for access to Glucofit.

Bonus tip:

herbal supplements

Natural supplementation is the key to long-term health, as the use of herbs and plants is the closest we can get to resetting our body systems to natural. What you wouldn’t find in foods today (for obvious reasons) you will find in scientifically controlled and produced dietary supplements.

And, unlike the assumption of our research group, the ingredients of Glucofit have been clinically tested and certified by several international medical bodies to be 100% natural and safe. Click here to access Glucofit.
