A natural remedy for ‘cheat-eating days’

How often do you feel guilty about cheating, not during a card or golf game or trying to pay less income tax, but time and again feeling guilty about cheating on how much you eat? Since readers are always asking me for more natural ways to treat medical problems, here’s one to decrease guilt on cheat-eating days.

It’s so easy to ‘cheat eat’ particularly on special occasions. How often do you consider that there are 14 teaspoons of sugar in a piece of cherry pie? Or, have the willpower to say no to the huge amount of calories on the table?

So is it possible to cheat and not gain weight when facing a meal that is impossible to resist? The Ultimate Starch and Fat Blocker, a natural remedy, claims you can have your cake and eat it too.

Your initial reaction has to be “Hey, it’s too good to be true.”

But the idea is based on a simple fact. If you consume fewer calories than you burn up, you will lose weight.

The magic ingredient in this case is an extract of the white bean which slows down the absorption of starches, a form of carbohydrate present in bread, potatoes, rice and pasta.

How does it work?

During the digestive process the body converts carbohydrates into sugar. The body does this by breaking down the carbohydrate molecule with alpha amylase, an enzyme that’s produced in the pancreas. The sugar is then used for energy or stored as fat.

The Ultimate Starch and Fat Blocker acts by slowing down the action of alpha amylase so there’s less breakdown of starches into sugar.

This process allows part of the food to pass through the intestines before it can be converted into sugar and then fat. But it does this without affecting the digestion of healthy carbohydrates, such as fruit and whole grain.

Studies show that this natural remedy blocks over 50% of calories from most starches, 30% from fat, reduces carbohydrate and sugar cravings and decreases excess cholesterol levels.

A study published in The Journal of International Research reported that those who used the Starch Blocker lost an average of 6.45 pounds in 30 days. In addition, they lost 10% of body fat mass and more than 3% in waist circumference. This natural remedy is mostly well tolerated, but some people complain of gas and diarrhea.

The Ultimate Starch and Fat Blocker is not meant to be a substitute for healthy eating. But anything that can help to stem the epidemic of obesity is worthwhile. Either we control obesity or it will bankrupt our health care system.

It’s shocking that The World Health Organization reports that, due to the epidemic of obesity, there’s a new case of Type 2 diabetes diagnosed every 40 seconds in North America!

This unprecedented epidemic is largely stoked by the goodies we all love, the starches that increase blood sugar and raise what’s called the glycemic index. This is never good news as the higher the glycemic index, the greater the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes.

Decreasing the number of calories in turn decreases the glycemic index and the risk of this disease.

I repeatedly tell patients that Rule #1 to fight obesity is to follow the time-tested way of eating a combination of protein, healthy fats and good carbohydrates such as fruit and fiber along with moderate exercise. Rule # 2 is to never forget Rule #1.

Unfortunately none of us are perfect and we all have our own individual devils.

One of the big ones, particularly during this holiday season, is the inability to say no to all the goodies presented to us. Look on The Ultimate Starch and Fat Blocker remedy as a temporary crutch to lean on when you know you’re going to have a cheat-eating day with a high starch or high fat meal.

The usual dose is two to three capsules at the start of a meal. The Ultimate Starch and Fat Blocker remedy is available at most health food stores.
