The TRUTH About Carbs, Blood Sugar & Fat Loss

The TRUTH About Carbs, Blood Sugar & Fat Loss 

(Eat Your Heart Out With This 45-Second Trick)

By Joel Marion, CISSN
You've probably heard that carbohydrates are perhaps the WORST thing you can eat when trying to lose fat or transform your body, and for most people, that's 100% true.
You see, due to years of consuming a diet full of processed carbs, most people have grown VERYinsensitive to one of the most important hormones in our body—a hormone that can either be a huge asset to your body transformation goals, or a total fat loss and health-derailing nightmare.
The name of this hormone is insulin.
And it's function is to help your body keep blood sugar at bay, clear it quickly from your bloodstream after a carbohydrate meal, and (hopefully) shuttle those carbs to be stored in muscle tissue for energy instead of info fat cells, driving up your weight.
I say "hopefully" because that's actually the exact opposite of what occurs when most people eat carbs.
Going back to insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate tolerance, due to a diet full of processed, insulin- and blood-sugar-spiking carbohydrates, most folks are suffering from some level of insulin resistance, a condition in which insulin is no longer able to efficiently remove blood sugar from the blood stream.

The result? Dramatically reduced fat burning, increased blood sugar levels and increased fat storage.

Even worse, insulin resistance can (and often does) lead to type II diabetes and an array of other health problems over time, such as an increased risk for Alzheimer’s and other cognitive disorders,premature aging, heart disease, and even stroke…and it all leads back to insulin sensitivity.

Ideally, when you consume carbohydrates, here is what you want to happen:

1. Minimum insulin release. This occurs when your body is highly sensitive to insulin. When it is, only a small amount of insulin is necessary to effectively and efficiently clear sugar from your blood to its storage sites. This is great news because your body has an incredibly difficult time burning fat in the presence of insulin. The less insulin you have floating around, the better.
2. Quick and efficient blood sugar clearance. Again, this will occur when your body is highly sensitive to insulin.
3. Maximum glycogen uptake. Glycogen is the term used for stored carbohydrate in muscle tissue and the liver. When these tissues are highly sensitive to insulin, the vast majority of blood sugar will be stored within them as an energy reserve, instead of being converted to fat.
4. Minimum fat storage. When you increase insulin sensitivity, your body will choose to store your carbohydrate intake as energy, again in lean muscle tissue and the liver, instead of body fat.
Again, your body's ability to tolerate carbohydrates all comes down to your insulin sensitivity and your body's ability to quickly and efficiently shuttle carbohydrates to lean tissue and not fat.

So how can you increase insulin sensitivity?

Well, you could go completely low-carb for an extended period of time in an attempt to repair your insulin receptors and increase insulin sensitivity. But for most, that's a rather dreadful option and even then you'd need to very slowly reintroduce carbohydrates back in to your diet to avoid massive fat gain.
No thanks.
Fortunately, you DON'T need to go low-carb or no-carb… at all.
In fact, many times you can enjoy even MORE carbohydrates than you currently are while losing even more fat when you utilize this one simple trick:
SUPERCHARGE your insulin sensitivity before each carbohydrate-containing meal in just a few seconds with the below 5 ingredients – each of which has been clinically shown to dramatically improve both insulin sensitivity and your body's ability to process carbs.
Here they are:
  1. #1. Cinnamomum Burmannii, a potent extract harvested from Indonesian cinnamon bark that has been shown to effectively assist in managing blood sugar after a carbohydrate-rich meal while increasing your body's ability to process the carbohydrates you eat by up to 10 fold!
  2. #2. Berberine. This rare plant alkaloid has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine in India. Berberine works slightly different by improving the signaling between insulin and its associated receptors while also increasing carb uptake by lean muscle for energy, not fat.
  3. #3. Pterocarpus Marsupium is another all-natural herbal remedy used by Ayurvedic physicians in India.  In fact, Pterocarpus Marsupium is so effective that it was shown in a recentIndian Journal of Medical Research study to reduce blood sugar levels 2 hours after a meal by a whopping 21%.
  4. #4. 4-hydroxyisoleucine, a natural phytochemical extracted from the Fenugreek herb harvested in the remote regions of Eastern India, has been scientifically shown to increase carbohydrate storage in muscle cells while decreasing carbohydrate fat storage through the sensitizing of insulin receptors in muscle tissue.4-hydroxyisoleucine has also been shown to interfere with the process by which the body converts muscle protein to sugar for energy. This encourages fat loss (instead of muscle break down) and aids in the retention of calorie-burning lean muscle as you lose fat.  This is great news because the more lean muscle you hold on to as you diet, the more calories your body naturally burns without any extra effort on your part
  5. #5 - R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA). Alpha Lipoic Acid is a naturally occuring fatty acid made up of two isomers, S-ALA and R-ALA, of which the R isomer has been shown to be significantly more effective and bioavailable. In fact, R-ALA is clinically proven to increase insulin sensitivity by an impressive 25% in just 4 weeks and is so powerful at managing blood sugar that it's even used by German doctors for the treatment of various nervous system conditions caused by high blood sugar.
Now, while you could try to locate all of the above ingredients individually, research the actual extracts of each that yield the positive carbohydrate tolerance effects mentioned above, purchase them all separately and pay shipping on each, then sort through study after study to determine the scientific dose of those extracts, the good news is that we already did ALL that for you at BioTrust Nutrition and put it in to one scientifically-backed, lab-tested, ultra-convenient product called IC-5™.
Just take 2 capsules prior to any carb-containing meal and let SCIENCE do the rest.
Simply put, IC-5™ is the most advanced insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate management formula available anywhere.
If you're eating carbs—and you should be—you should be using IC-5™...if not, you are without a doubt missing out on the sizable fat loss benefits that come along with increased insulin sensitivity and improved carbohydrate tolerance.

The #1 Bodyweight exercise

Hey Everyone

Rafael Moret here with a cool new program
Most experts agree that this exercise is the BEST exercise of all time.


It's not a pushup.
It's not a squat.
It's not a sit-up, either.

It's WAY more than that...

More bang for your exercise buck, that's what gets dramatic results
faster, right?

So if you had to do ONE exercise to get you fit and looking
fantastic in record time, what would it be?

According to the chairman of the Department of Kinesiology at
McMaster University in Hamilton Ontario, when asked his opinion on
the single best exercise, he suggested the burpee because it "It
builds muscles AND it builds endurance."

It's a 3 for 1 exercise that only takes 3 seconds to perform.
You'll hit the upper body, lower body, core and cardiovascular
system all within that 3-second window.

But did you know there is more than ONE way to do burpees?

Discover ALL of the burpee variations here

No matter which one you use, nothing is more efficient for
fat loss.

The fact that you need NO equipment and can do burpees pretty
much anywhere are added bonuses.

And in my friend Shawna K's new Challenge Burpee program, you'll
get a done-for-you fat loss workout system that uses this
best exercise ever.

You'll find 21 workouts with burpees and combinations that
you've never done before. You'll be challenged to push your fitness
levels and the 'happy coincidence' whenever you consistently
challenge yourself is a rockin' hard body.

(Shawna is living proof! She's 50 years old but can keep up
with 20 year olds...and she even has six-pack abs.)

These are the workouts she and her most successful clients use

Shawna will also let you in on her insider secrets on how to get
the most from each move inside her coaching videos that come with
the workouts, too.

This ensures that your exercise form is perfect, will maximize your
results and keep you injury free. For much less than a buck a
workout, you're really getting 'bang for your buck' in more ways
than one.

You'll also want to try her 500 and 1000 Rep Workout Bonuses to
really boost your fitness and fat burning.

Discover how to use the best exercise of all time to get ripped

4-minute addiction proven BETTER than 30 min of cardio [STUDY]

Hey Everyone

Rafael here

There's a new 4 minute addiction that's sweeping the nation that's
proven to be BETTER than 30 minutes of normal, boring cardio.
Canadian researchers at Queen's University tested a workout using workout
"finishers" style of training against long cardio.
(Reference: Appl Physiol Nutr Metab. 2012 Sep 20.)
- 22 college-aged women did 4 workouts per week for 4 weeks in one of three
Group A: did 30 minutes of treadmill running at 85% max heart rate
Group B: did 8 rounds of 20 seconds of a single exercise (burpees, jumping
jacks, mountain climbers, or squat thrusts) with 10 seconds of rest between
Group C: did nothing (they were the non-training control group).
Results: Both training groups increased their aerobic fitness levels by the SAME
amount (about 7-8%).
That's right, these short workout finishers (of ONLY 4 minutes) worked
just as well as 30 minutes of cardio!

Shocking? Yes, but that's not all.
ONLY Group B, the workout finishers style training, also increased muscular 
endurance in common exercises like chest presses, leg extensions, sit-ups,
and push-ups.
Make sure you read that last sentence one more time so it sinks in please...
Enjoyment is obviously a key to consistency when it comes to exercise
otherwise you'll never follow through. 
The Canadian Scientists concluded that "extremely low volume bodyweight
interval-style training" will boost cardiovascular fitness just as well as cardio
while giving you BETTER improvements in muscle endurance.
All in only 4 minutes.
So, what was the EXACT protocol that helped these people get shocking results
in just 4 minutes?
It's called METABOLIC STACKING from my good friend Mikey Whitfield who's
lost 105 POUNDS using this brand new scientific approach.
It's all part of Mike's brand new Workout Finishers 2.0 System ...
And best of all, you don't have to change what you're currently doing!
Just plug in Mikey's "Finishers" with your favorite workouts to double your
results and create a 38 to 48 "after-burn" of increased metabolic rate...
And right now, it's 65% off.
And in addition to all 51 BRAND NEW Workout Finisher Follow-Along Videos,
you'll also get the 21-Minute Finishers Express Workout System 100% FREE.
But there is a catch.
These special combinations of metabolic resistance training, metabolic
conditioning and metabolic finishers are only available TODAY during this
special celebration:
==> 51 Workout Finishers PLUS FREE 21-Minute Workouts (65% off)
Mike has entered 6 of his private clients into Craig Ballantyne's Turbulence
Training Transformation Contest and ALL 6 clients won or placed, even with
thousands of people voting.
And they did it with ZERO cardio.
Their secret weapon was Mikey's "finishers".
So don't be surprised when you find yourself with NEW definition in muscles
you haven't seen before after trying these bad boys.
That's what finishers will do. Especially when you bring your body
a unique stimulus like this.
Here's the bottom line. I wouldn't recommend this program if I didn't believe in
what Mike creates and does.
