we began to focus on nutrition. Let us
continue that process but focus on a problem that many of my readers complain
of; that thing called ‘fat.’
ask you to hear and accept a few facts.
Once that ground is established, we can work toward helping you become
slim and trim.
stopped working for you? Do you have excess weight that won't budge? Do you feel like your abdomen is slowly
bulging out as the years go by? Our body is like a chemical factory. For every
bodily activity, our body is undergoing some kind of chemical reactions.
Your blood sugar
is the main factor you must control besides your caloric intake for your body
fat loss. Calorie means energy. Any excess energy you put into your body, if
not utilized, will be stored in the form of fat. At the heart of losing weight
is the body fat control. You need to know that it's not just the amount of food
you eat that determines your body fat. It has to do with when and how often you
eat as well as what and how much you eat.
First of all, you
must have a good wholesome breakfast to balance the blood sugar, because you
haven't eaten all night. You may have heard, eat your breakfast like a king,
lunch like a queen, and supper like a pauper. Let's say you skipped your
breakfast and didn't eat anything until lunchtime. You may feel extremely
hungry and very likely your blood sugar level will be low. At this point, your
body will go into a starvation mode by hanging onto fat to protect itself. Your
body just plans for the worst. If you suddenly
load up at dinnertime, your blood sugar goes out of balance. The ratio of 40% Carbohydrates, 30% Proteins
and 30% Fats in calories is highly recommended. The key to losing body fat is
to keep your blood sugar level as even as possible with wholesome snacks
between meals. Needless to say, it is also important to lower the calorie
intake and to exercise.
We welcome another
of our patients to visit with you. Here
is Scott Hall:
I’ve been with Dr. Lim for 2 years or more. I had lower back pain . . he adjusted me and
got me back on track. Not only do I see
him on a regular basis to keep myself in shape, but my wife, Terry, and daughter,
Whitney, do as well. We’ve all gone to
the whole series of his seminars. We’re big
believers in Dr. Lim. He’s thorough and he really knows his stuff!
