Eat wisely to improve a poor health condition

Do you have cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure or any other chronic disease for that matter? Did you know that 180 is nutrient rich, low GI, high fibre/protein and gluten free? This means that due to these factors our supplement is often recommended by nutritionists to help resolve a variety of health issues, and it could help you.

Here’s how our natural protein supplement can help you

Overwhelming evidence from a variety of sources, link most chronic diseases seen in the world today to physical inactivity and inappropriate diet consumption, and this is our belief too. Sadly we live in a society where we generally only treat the symptoms of ill health, not the cause.

And the cause being mainly the choices we make on a daily basis, from the foods we eat and the activities we do. It is now well recognised that anyone suffering from a chronic disease should be looking at a low Glycemic Index diet.

    In a market flooded with protein powders and supplements that are filled with artificial flavourings and chemicals it is great to find a product that I can reccomend to my patients that is based on quality natural ingredients and manufactured to the highest standards. The usual Australian diet is high in refined carbohydrates which encourages an unhealthy muscle to fat ratio which ultimately contributes to many disease processes. Helping patients balance their protein to carbohydrate intake makes a big difference in their health as does the extra boost in nutrients, essentials fatty acids and natural fibre that 180 nutrition provides.

    I would recommend 180 nutrition to anyone who is interested in maintaining a balanced diet and achieving optimal health. Visit Tania’s site here.

Learn more about the problems with High-Glycemic (GI) Carbohydrates?

The problem with an excessive High-Glycemic Diet, is it raises blood sugars too rapidly, and this is the number one culprit in nutritionally caused health problems. And our society is loaded with High GI foods.

Hi GI foods create an acute excessive insulin response. Insulin is an essential hormone for life, yet acute, chronic elevation of insulin leads to hyperinsulinism, which has been positively linked to Diabetes, obesity, elevated cholesterol levels, blood pressure, mood dysfunction and most chronic diseases.

We recommend a Low-Glycemic approach to food. By doing this, it will have a positive impact on your insulin response and your over all blood sugar levels.

What foods should I be eating?

In plain English, it should be organic when possible, all your garden vegetables, especially greens, certain low GI fruits (berries are good), unprocessed meats, nuts, seeds, little starch and NO SUGAR!

Food is perishable, and not made to be processed, it was designed that way. Anything with an extra long shelf life is probably processed, be suspicious. Modern diets are ill suited for our genetic composition. Evolution has not kept pace with the advances in agriculture and food processing resulting in a plague of health problems for modern man.

If you follow these simple rules to food, and combine them with exercise, you’ll be amazed with the results. Your body will be extremely grateful.

What foods shouldn’t I eat?

High GI foods for a start, they include rice, bread, candy, potato, sweets, sodas, anything that has white flour or sugar in it, and most processed carbohydrates. Processing can include bleaching, baking, grinding, and refining.

Think like a Caveman. If it wasn’t around back then, the chances are, you shouldn’t be eating it now.
