Carb Monster-The Science of Low Carb

I find a lot of videos and research material that make me even more motivated that I am controlling my own insulin and keeping it normal, the health benefits I have been having by choosing to eat a lower carbohydrate diet and exercise, I can continue losing weight, lower my blood pressure, avoid having high cholesterol, and not becoming diabetic. My Controlling the Carb Monster is more than losing weight..its about staying healthy and being able to stay active even tho I do have an inflammatory auto immune disease, I have been in remission and now can enjoy my foods, have the energy I need to take that 2 mile daily walk, and keep track of the foods I eat, and eating clean, whole food, off the process foods which my blood sugar has been normal and my blood pressure is looking good!

Now,I am finally able to experience new and exciting ways to jump start my fat loss, I will have another video soon explaining more about my new ways to enhance my low carb life style, and why practicing intermittent Low Carb fasting, Oil Pulling and walking daily seems to have jump started me in the right direction and help keep my arthritis under control.

What are ketones?

Ketones are a normal and efficient source of fuel and energy for the human body. They are produced by the liver from fatty acids, which result from the breakdown of body fat in response to the absence of glucose/sugar. In a ketogenic diet, such as Atkins ... or diets used for treating epilepsy in children, the tiny amounts of glucose required for some select functions can be met by consuming a minimum amount of carbs - or can be manufactured in the liver from PROTEIN. When your body is producing ketones, and using them for fuel, this is called "ketosis".
