The Sugar-Free Miracle Diet is miraculous because it not only solves the problem of food addiction and binge eating, it corrects obesity and overweight, and it diminishes type 2 diabetes, chronic low grade inflammation, pooand pre-mature aging. How good is that? Six health advantages from one simple eating strategy.
BENEFIT #1: END BINGE EATING AND FOOD ADDICTION
First and most importantly, The Sugar-Free Miracle Diet is specifically designed to end (or to at least dramatically lessen) binge eating and food addiction. Food addiction is a special and tricky addiction because, unlike other addictions, it's not possible to stop eating. It is possible, however, to stop eating the substance that triggers crazy eating behaviors, and this substance is sugar, other caloric sweeteners and highly processed flours.
The reason sugars are so addictive is because they p rompt the production and release of dopamine, a highly addictive neurotransmitter that creates pleasurable, feel good sensations. Everyone likes to get pleasure from food, but some people are more sensitive and reactive to dopamine than others. Binge eaters and food addicts are in this class of sensitive, reactive people. Forget about relying on feelings of fullness to stop eating because the potent flood of doopamine overrides feelings of fullness and renders it useless. Note that new research demonstrates that mice pick sugar over cocaine and both substances have the same brain pathways as alcohol and many recreational drugs.
Burn this into your brain: low fat and low calorie diets DO NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF BINGE EATING! Yes, of course, low fat low calorie diets result in weight loss, but not for long. Unfortunately, as you already know, highly restrictive dieting triggers world class binge eating, the kind of binge eating that last for weeks, months, even years. Why bother with another round of this exasperating, predictable process?

BENEFIT #2: LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF FOR GOOD!
The SugarFree Miracle Diet solves the problem of overweight and obesity, and it's a permanent solution! Most people lose about 2 pounds per week by eating fat, eliminating sugars, and eating a high voluime of carb smart veggies. Fat in the diet makes it possible to eat delicious foods that satisfy. The elimination of sugars eliminates the production of pesky dopamine, and eating a high volume veggies makes it possible to actually experience real fullness. These three eating strategies lead to normalized eating, which leads to long-term sustainability.
After the first two or three days, there's no suffering, no deprivation, no hunger. Try the 10 Day SUGARFREE Challenge and see for yourself if this is true.
Sugar makes you fat. Sugar makes you hungry. Sugar makes you sick.
BENEFIT #3: REDUCE CHRONIC LOW GRADE INFLAMMATION
The SugarFree Miracle Diet dramatically reduces the problem of chronic low grade inflammation, the common underlying condition of every serious disease you don't want including obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers.
Chronic low grade inflammation is the bodily response to disease, injury, unwholesome diet, some meditations and street drugs as well as to smoking and stress. It's associated with certain "bio markers" in the blood, the pressence of fat tissue, liver dysfunction and aging. These bio markers are not usually monitored or measured by PCP's and are not known by the every day person. Consequently, chronic low grade inflammation typically flies under the radar and goes unnoticed. This is complicated by the fact that low grade chronic inflammation is characterized by low energy, non specific aches and pains, and apathy. These vague symptoms are easily atributable to other causes.
A high sugar, high refined carbohydrate diet is one of the biggest contributors to chronic low grade inflammation and metabolic syndrome. Sugars and refined carbohydrates result in the production of insulin to move the sugar out of the blood and into the cells where its used for energy or stored for future use. Excessive consumption of sugars and highly refined foods results in constant and excessive prodiuction of insulin, a metabolic disruptor and stressor. They also result in the overproduction of triglycerides, another metabolic stressor that increases the accumulation of bodily fat.
A diet high in sugars and refined carbohydrates is a big ontributor to chronic low grade inflammati
BENEFIT #4: SLOW DOWN THE AGING PROCESS
This isn't rocket science. The high consumption of sugars, other caloric sweeteners and refined carbohydrates results in high sugar in your blood, which is called glucose. High glucose levels have a direct relationship to rapid aging and mortality. In fact, high insulin and high glucose levels are the #1 and #2 most influential, most important bio markers associated with accelerated aging. Consider this: high glucose levels decrease the lifespan in women by 7 years and by 5 years in men. Even more, high glucose levels at any age increase mortality from any disease by 40% or more.
Fasting Glucose Statistics:
Optimal: 80 to 94 mg/dl
Normal: 95-100 mg
High (indicates pre-diabetes). 100 t0 125 mg/dl
Very high (indicates diabetes). 125 mg/dl or more
Mortality risk: 140 mg/dl or more
You can't manage what you don't measure. Insist on getting your blood sugar measured the very next time you see your PCP. If your glucose is high, let it be inspiration to get sugars out of your diet. Glucose is highly volatile and easy to change.
Savvy researchers and leading edge physicians who DON'T have type 2 diabetes routinely give themselves metformin, a type 2 diabetes prescription. Metformin lowers insulin production and glucose to optimal levels. You can achieve the same result through diet without the pharmaceutical assist.
