There are a number of serious health risks associated with obesity, including cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, type-2 diabetes, and cancers that can significantly diminish one’s length and quality of life. What we know about cancer and obesity is that a number of cancers are associated with excess body fat. They include post-menopausal breast, esophageal, pancreatic, colon, rectal, uterine, thyroid, and gallbladder cancers.
High insulin levels promote fat storage, and very often obesity. Research on breast cancer has shown that high insulin levels, an attribute of type-2 diabetes and obesity, leads to poorer response to therapy and higher mortality rates than for women with normal insulin levels.
Carbohydrates elevate blood sugar and insulin levels. The best and easiest way to maintain normal insulin levels is to limit one’s intake of poor quality carbohydrates (e.g., starches, sugars, and grains.
The HEAL Low-Carb Protocol is designed for women at risk for serious health issues. If you are overweight or obese, and especially if you have a family history of diabetes, breast cancer, or have polycystic ovary syndrome, HEAL can teach you how to normalize your weight, blood sugar, and insulin levels, lowering the risk of unintended disease consequences. Your plan will be personalized for your specific needs so you can be successful in reaching and then maintaining your goals.
Be proactive. Please do not wait until you receive a serious medical diagnosis to address your weight issues.
