"Integrating the Menus with the 7 Keys By combining the menus and recommendations for choosing healthy foods, along with the suggestions for exercise, supplements, relaxation, and saunas and steam baths at the end of each UltraMetabolism key in part II, not only will you lose weight and learn simple, effective ways to change your habits and reset your metabolism, but you will build the foundation for lifelong health. Food as Medicine In the Chinese language the word for eating is made up of the characters for "eat rice," or chifan. The characters for "take medicine" are chi yao."

"One of the factors left out in such simple equations is what I call the starvation syndrome.When you buy into the idea that eating less will make you lose weight, you convince yourself that you need to restrict calories from your diet. In fact, most of the popular diets on the market recommend that you do just that.The problem is that calorie restriction almost always backfires. The reason? Your body thinks it's starving to death and sets off chemical processes inside you that force you to eat more. This, in essence, is how the starvation syndrome works. Let's look at it in more detail."

"Just as the term starch is interchangeable with complex carbohydrates, so too is sugar with simple carbohydrates. The terms are actually quite descriptive. Complex carbohydrates are long, more complicated chains of glucose molecules, and, as you've probably already guessed, simple carbohydrates are very short chains of glucose molecules—only two per chain. G - G Simple carbohydrates are simple to eat, simple to digest, and simple to absorb. The first, middle, and last step in the digestive process is to break the molecule in half."

"The problem is that the answer is not that simple. After all, it's not as though the choice is between sitting down at night and eating either a plate of bread or a pile of broccoli for dinner. There are carbs you'll want to stay away from and ones that you will want to incorporate into your diet—concepts we'll get into a little later in the chapter. But the key to balancing your meals so that you don't develop insulin problems revolves around another new concept: the glycemic load of a meal."
- Mark Hyman, Ultra-Metabolism: The simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss (Get the book.)

"All simple sugars—concentrated fruit juice, honey, maple syrup, rice syrup, agave, et cetera—suppress your immune system and attack your body like a foreign invader. If we were to eat no sugar at all, our bodies would still have plenty of glucose, which we need to live," explains Dr. Appleton, who has been studying sugar's dangers since the 1980s. You Don't Eat That Many Sweets or Quickie Carbs, Right? Wait! Are You in Denial? Perhaps the above statistics and conclusions don't convince you that you've boosted your intake of sugar and fast-acting carbs."

"The answer is simple. Sugar and high-glycemic carbohydrates are proinflammatory: that is, they create an inflammatory response in the body. My decades of research have shown that chronic, subclinical inflammation is the single greatest precipitator of aging and age-related diseases. These include diseases as diverse as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, certain forms of cancer, obesity, unwanted weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and wrinkled, sagging skin. This inflammation takes place on a cellular level and exists in all of our cells."

"It puzzles me why the simple concept 'sugar feeds cancer' can be so dramatically overlooked as part of a comprehensive cancer treatment plan. Of the 4 million cancer patients being treated in America today, hardly any are offered any scientifically guided nutrition therapy beyond being told to 'just eat good foods.' I believe many cancer patients would have a major improvement in their outcome if they controlled the supply of cancer's preferred fuel, glucose." —The Alternative Research Foundation (from www.mercola.com) "We know that tumors are glucose guzzlers."

"The meals were delicious, incorporating healing local plants such as chia (once eaten by the Pima Indians). We had something to eat five times a day and shared our meals with laughter and pleasure. In the mornings we woke early, sat quietly watching the sunrise, then walked and talked on the beach. We did yoga, had classes, and rested our nervous systems. In the evenings we sat in the temazcal, a Mayan steam bath. We all unplugged from the worldfor a week,from all our compulsive habits and addictions—whether to Starbucks or cyberspace."

"It's simple to learn and simple to do," said Fran. "That's true, but it doesn't work very well," I rationalized. Our real resistance had a different origin with the realization it would force on us yet another glimpses of our own, and each other's, mortality. "As soon as we have the time, let's take lessons," said Fran. "The Red Cross would be a good place." Fran nodded. "Maybe when this book is completed." Our hands were over our hearts, but not to pledge allegiance."

"Use of simple accessories in the mat and reformer exercises increases the anti-aging benefits. The moving platform on the reformer increases the benefit of resistance exercises as demonstrated by a recent study. A group of eight college men were studied for strength gains from doing curl-ups on a stable surface or using different positions on a movable surface such as the reformer platform. Abdominal strength was increased by 21 percent and oblique muscle strength was increased by 5 percent when the men did their curl-ups on a stable surface."

"Follow the 5 simple steps faithfully and check your progress with home tests. Your success story will be an inspiration to others. Let's condense the information contained in this book into an action plan. First, complete the health questionnaire in appendix A. Second, send for your saliva hormone test kit and select the tests you want based on your gender, age, and lifestyle. Third, prepare your weekly menu based on your meal plan. Set up a diary to record what you eat during the week, emphasizing more protein and fewer carbohydrates, especially late in the day."

"William Dufty recounts in Sugar Blues. "The remedy was self-government of the body. The patient with low blood glucose must be prepared to give up refined sugar, candy, coffee, and soft drinks—these items had caused the troubles. Patients with hyperinsulin-ism could never be made dependent for a lifetime on anybody else," Dufty writes. "They had to fend for themselves. A doctor could merely teach them what to do. Hyperinsulinism or low blood glucose therapy was a do-it-yourself proposition." "The medical profession landed on Dr. Harris like a ton of bricks."

"Carbohydrates come in two basic varieties: sugars, which are also classified as simple carbohydrates; and starches, which are classified as complex carbohydrates. "Simple" and "complex" refer to the number and arrangement of the molecules that make up the structure of the carbohydrates. Sugars have a simpler molecular structure than starches. Simple Carbohydrates: Sugars The simplest carbohydrate is glucose, or dextrose, which is usually found in food in combination with another much sweeter sugar, fructose. Fructose and glucose combined form sucrose, or table sugar."

"Stone says the best way to beat procrastination is with the simple statement "Do It Now." While lying on my bed in the early evening, Stone's "Do It Now" concept comes into my mind and I realize there are dinner dishes to be dealt with, school lunches to be made, and probably writing to do. In fact, this description was started at 11 p.m. because Stone's "Do It Now" message came to mind and so did the deadline. Close to 90 days have passed since I began the 5-Step Plan. The first few weeks on the program I often skipped taking the supplement. Or, I'd take the supplement in the a.m."

"G - G Simple carbohydrates are simple to eat, simple to digest, and simple to absorb. The first, middle, and last step in the digestive process is to break the molecule in half. Only one enzyme is needed, and voila, you have single glucose molecules ready to be quickly absorbed into your bloodstream. G / G w bloodstream This digestive process is so simple that it takes almost no time at all. Within minutes, your blood glucose is on the rise, and your brain is bombarded with energy molecules."

"The wonderful thing about this very simple approach is that it frees you from arbitrarily vilifying entire food classes (as in "carbs make you fat," "fat makes you fat") as well as worrying about eating incorrect foods for your "type," meticulously calculating precise ratios of protein/carbohydrate/fat, and doing other time-wasting activities. Our goal is to provide you with a scientifically sound yet innovative lifelong eating strategy that you can live with each and every day."

"You may be surprised, for example, that something as simple as adding walnuts to your diet each day can improve your HDL levels. Indeed, walnuts are just one of the foods that favorably modify gene expression. Blood Pressure "If I hadn't gone to that health fair with my neighbor, I probably still would not know that I have high blood pressure," says Ellie, a forty-eight-year-old nursery school teacher. "I hadn't been to see my doctor in several years because I didn't have a reason to go, so I didn't think anything was wrong."

"Let's begin by looking at some simple blood tests that we believe are a great substitute for other very costly and sophisticated tests in helping to determine whether you are at risk for insulin resistance. We will then examine two more tests (hemoglobin Aj and fructosamine) that are essential for checking for and following up on evidence of any glycation-induced damage to your body. We also discuss other tests that are not commonly ordered by physicians and their value in screening and testing for diabetes, including one for men only."

"Do you need a simple guideline to help you decide which probiotic supplement is best for you? Simply remember where species like to live. Lactobacilli are predominantly found in the small intestine. Bifidobacteria are predominantly found in the large intestine (colon). For example, problems with the colon may be best aided with Bifidobacteria that like to live there. Yeast infections are best treated with Lactobacilli as these species are the dominant probiotics in the vagina. This is an over-simplification, but it can be helpful."

"As little as five minutes of simple exercises such as walking, isometrics, or muscle flexing proved as effective as a nicotine patch in decreasing an immediate craving.77 Not only does exercise reduce cravings for cigarettes, but it seems to dramatically improve endurance and fitness, decreases body fat stores, and decrease insulin resistance. A prospective study of Japanese men concluded that age of smoking initiation and number of cigarettes smoked were major risk factors for developing diabetes.78 Similarly, data from the U.S."

"Using a simple equation, the ANDI, and the calories per serving, we calculate the MANDI and get a scoring system based on 100. A daily intake of 100 points of MANDI represents the ideal diet. The MANDI scores are another tool to help you live Eat For Health in your daily life, with foods and portion sizes that you typically encounter. Beginning on page 79, you will find point values for a variety of commonly eaten foods. If the serving size we have selected is different from what you are using, just divide or multiply accordingly."

"In summary, factors that may contribute to insulin resistance and thus to diabetes include: high-fat diet; low-protein diet; deficiencies of the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids; a diet high in simple carbohydrates; high-glycemic meals filled with refined sugar and starches; stress; low fiber intake; deficiencies of the minerals calcium, magnesium, chromium, vanadium, potassium, and zinc; deficiency of carotenoids; low intake of vegetables; lack of exercise; watching television; and nicotine."

"The reason they don't know how to eat right is also simple: Because we've never taught them. Often, we don't know how to eat right ourselves, but it's long past time that we learned. Changing our kids' diets isn't very difficult—that's not the problem here. After all, kids eat what their parents give them to eat. Their tastes develop according to the foods we give them, and their eating habits tend to carry over into adulthood. More than that, diet plays a key role in the development of a healthy immune system and a healthy brain and central nervous system."

"So, as we look at this process in terms of the carbohydrates we can understand full well all carbohydrates are not all the same. simple carbohydrates—anything with white sugar, white bread, or high-fructose corn syrup—are very different from complex carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates such as beans, grains, and vegetables are actually valuable in the healing of diabetes. An interesting cultural study conducted fifty years ago that makes this point is that of the O'Odham people of Southern Arizona, historically known as the River Pima and Papago, who had almost no diabetes."

"Then I added a simple daily exercise regimen, which almost totally eliminated the back and neck pain I'd been having. I felt ten years younger. This book carries the wonderful promise that you can do yourself the same favor. In a short time, using the Vitamin D Cure, you can make yourself well! Check the list of symptoms and diseases in chapter 1. If you see your own nagging health bothers on those lists, get started with your own personal fixer-upper. Assess your levels of vitamin D, good nutrition, and exercise; make a few changes; and you can feel better in ninety days or less."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"The two simple rules are: 1. Eat mostly from two food groups: lean meat and fresh produce. 2. Consume three times as much fresh produce as lean meat by weight (3:1 produce to protein). By lean protein we mean lean animal protein. This includes grass-fed beef, pork tenderloin; seafood (all kinds, but especially those high in omega-3 fat); boneless, skinless poultry; game meat; and, to a lesser extent, omega eggs (these are eggs labeled "higher in omega-3" because the hens get better feed)."
