Weight Loss Plan Reduces Heart Disease Risk - Page 2
Refined wheat products are everywhere, and include multi and whole grain breads which are touted as being healthy. Studies demonstrate that wheat can be the trigger for a series of metabolic maladies including high triglycerides and oxidized LDL cholesterol, both of which lead to coronary plaque formation, especially in the presence of high blood pressure.
Eat Natural to Lose Weight and Prevent Heart Disease
A diet, which focuses on foods in their natural form is necessary to prevent and even reverse the effects of a lifetime of poor food choices. It’s necessary to eliminate all wheat based products from the diet to reap the benefits in disease risk reduction. Processed wheat products are a significant source of calories, so quick weight loss will be an immediate benefit.
More importantly, the low level inflammation many experience from wheat consumption will subside along with many risk factors. The first two weeks will be the most difficult as your body accommodates to the new diet, but soon you’ll feel more focused and revived with a burst of extra energy. Eliminate wheat and replace those calories with natural carbohydrates from leafy green vegetables, nuts (especially walnuts and almonds), seeds, lean proteins and healthy fat sources.
Weight loss and heart disease prevention and reversal are both achieved through a healthy diet which excludes wheat in all forms. Wheat is a relative newcomer to the food supply, and is seen as an intruder to our digestive system. This causes inflammation in our arteries and excess weight around the midsection. Replacing wheat with raw, natural food choices will quickly prompt weight loss and reduce heart disease risk factors.
