Successful European Webinar :: Glyconutrient Success Stories

Today, during the meeting w/ the European group, I was reminded about the greatness of glyconutrients. Congratulations to all participants.

Because our European associates are unable to make our evening (North American times) webinars, we scheduled one exclusively for them. The presentation was complete science based (as some European doctors had been invited by our associates). Some North American associates went on, however. It always helps to have collaboration from leaders. We are proud to say glyconutrients are making an impact worldwide.

There were a lot of success stories related to health. Both sides of the Atlantic had stories that ranged from weight loss to more serious health conditions. One of the participants, a psychiatrist was so touched by the stories he was telling that he cried during a couple of them. The first about a little boy who wasn't able to walk before. And when describing that the boy was now taking steps (assisted) he almost couldn't continue. He said, "I'm sorry but I learned that was impossible. Nothing ever prepared me for this". He then went on to talk about a friend of his (a woman) and her improvement with a chronic cellular proliferation problem and then about another child who had learning problems. But then, at the end, he started talking about a female family member of his who suffered from a similar chronic cellular proliferation problem as the other lady. This time, he simply said that it was a family member with this type of problem, and it was too much for him. He excused himself, said the emotional joy and awe couldn't let him continue. He handed the microphone back to the host.

CNN Mexico wouldn't let me Comment... I did a Blog Post

On February 11 of this year, CNN Mexico published an article about obesity in Mexico. It is an excellent article because it makes us reflect and take action against fat.

Cardiologist Jaime Burkle talked about obesity and how the consumption of lots of calories and a sedentary life leads to the accumulation of fat and finally to insulin resistance (diabetes type II).

"We now understand that diets high in calories and sedentary lifestyles overstimulate the production of insulin and at some point, the cells, saturated with sugar, begin to resist this hormone", he says.

The doctor makes a good point when talking about the production of insulin and a resistance to it. But more important than the quantity of calories, it has to do with the quantity of foods with a high glycemic index that are consumed. Because these are absorbed rapidly into the bloodstream, the body produces a lot of insulin so it can get into the cells and not remain in the blood.

A lot of insulin means excess of energy. Which is precisely why "ovens" are turned off and the body begins to store what it can as fat (in fatty tissues) and glycogen (primarily in liver and kidneys).

I would like to add the following to his recommendations:

1) Keep two rules in mind when reading food labels: 1.- Read the ingredients. If you cannot pronounce them, you shouldn't eat them (and it doesn't count if you're a biochemist). 2.- The least number of ingredients, the better.
- Example: When I happen to buy chips (very rare) I buy Fritos because the ingredients are salt, corn, oil.

2) Do everything possible so that raw fruits and vegetables are 70% of what you eat. See the new food pyramid that Harvard Medical School suggested. You will need supplements.

3) Aerobic exercise is very good and we should all walk AT LEAST the 3 or 4 days that Dr. Burkle suggests. But fat (our opponent) is consumed by muscles. It is important that you strengthen your muscles somehow. The best way is with weights, but you can start by doing push-ups, sit-ups, and squats as soon as you wake up (before ever leaving the room).

Survey: Water and Lemon in the Morning

It is believed that a glass of water w/ half a lemon (or lime) squeezed into it, first thing in the morning (at least an hour before breakfast) increases the activity of certain detoxification enzymes in the liver.

Do you do it? If yes, where did you hear about it and when did you start? If no, is this the first time you've heard of this or had you hear it but just have never done it?

New Study About Apples

A new scientific study suggests why the old saying that an apple a day keeps the doctor may be true.

We know that apples are great and tasty snacks. They great sources of fiber (with the average having 3.3g - fiber only exists in the skin) and are an excellent alternative to candy as their crunch and sweet taste are deceptively fun and healthy for kids.

But a recent study conducted by microbiologists from the University of Denmark's National Food Institute found that apples may be incredible prebiotics! More specifically, the fiber from the apple skin (pectin) was found to help intestinal flora (friendly bacteria) create a pH environment that is ideal for probiotic growth.

Presentation "Challenge against Fat" Was Highly Successful!

Last night the glycotrainer team held a virtual presentation in Spanish focused on fat loss.

Thanks to everyone who was able to make it last night to this virtual presentation about how fat is handled and eliminated in the body. It was such a success that we are thinking about hosting a follow up presentation (or series) about this topic and maybe go into more detail about other topics which were mentioned, like reducing certain sugars from your diet or the reduction and increase of certain fats (fatty acids), etc.

If you were unable to be with us, you'll have an opportunity to be part of the next one. Send a friend request through Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/glycotrainer) or become a fan of our fan page so you don't miss the invitation.

Interesting points from the presentation
