Stars Report Amazing Weight Loss with Raspberry Ketone Extract

Since the mention on Dr Oz's programme, Raspberry Ketone extract has been receiving lots of publicity.  It is a supplement which is gaining a lot of attention.

According to Dr Lindsey (the guest host on the popular Dr Oz show) Raspberry Ketone Extract works in more than one way, “The first way is it goes in and causes the body to burn glucose, or sugar, and burn fat, mainly in the liver…The second way, the most important way, is it slows the release of sugar into the blood stream. So when you don’t have sugar building up in the blood stream, you don’t have fat building up because sugar turns to fat…When the two are combined together, you get this synergistic effect that basically burns and blocks and stops fat, but it also is natural and safe.”

Raspberry Ketones are known to regulate adiponectin, a hormone that causes your body to boost metabolism. In turn, the fat within your cells gets broken up more effectively, helping your body burn fat faster and more efficiently.

Here is what Miracle Raspberry Ketone™ claimed on their website…
  • ·         In a study published in the journal Lipids in Health& Disease, subjects taking Raspberry Ketone lost an average of 7 kilograms in 28 days without diet or exercise.
  • ·         Miracle Raspberry Ketone contains no stimulants.
  • ·         Raspberry Ketone has been found to increase metabolism, boosting weight loss by more than 800%.
  • ·         Studies have shown a 39% reduction in cholesterol and an average 2 inch reduction in belly fat within 28 days.

Studies Confirm Link of Low Fat Diets With Depression and Impulsive Behavior

Low fat diets have been associated with increased risks of depression and suicide. This correlation was first noticed decades ago. While going over data in a study of heart disease, researchers where surprised to find that individuals with the lowest cholesterol levels had increased incidences of deaths from suicide, violence and accidents. Since these initial findings, several studies have confirmed a link to low fat diets with depression and impulsive behavior.

The Link to Serotonin

It is thought that low fat diets affect serotonin levels in the brain. However, it is not clear exactly how low fat diets disrupt the serotonin balance. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that works to inhibit impulsive behavior. It is often found that individuals with abnormal serotonin function have thoughts of suicide and impulsive, hostile behavior.

The Importance of Dietary Fats

Dietary fats are necessary for the proper functioning of all the cells of the body. Brain cells are no exception. Eating a diet that lacks sufficient healthy fats will negatively affect how you look and feel. It is possible that individuals vary in their dietary fat requirements. However, if you have been on a low fat diet and are experiencing dry skin and hair or mood problems, you may want to consider adding more dietary fats back into your diet.

Expect Weight Gain on a Low Fat Diet

Our media-induced fear of fat has created a very profitable market with over 15,000 reduced-fat products on sale in the USA! These products completely fail to live up to their claims, not to mention that they don’t even taste good. Have you ever had a fat-free product that tasted better than the original? The fact is that when they remove the fat, they have to put something back in, and that “something” is usually more sugar, sodium, artificial flavorings, binding agents and other chemicals.”

Weight Gain:
Expect weight gain on a low fat, high refined grain diet. Saturated fats such as butter, lard, coconut oil have a strong influence on metabolism! These fats help to release insulin. Fat keeps you full longer. Fats are satisfying and satiating.  When you avoid fat, you are hungry more frequently.

Medium-Chain Fatty acids like those found in coconut oil have also been shown to boost metabolism and aid in weight loss. Medium-Chain Fatty Acids are immediately used for energy (are quickly digested and do not require bile to break them down) which, subsequently, increase metabolism. This is also known as “thermogenesis” or fat burning. The body becomes more efficient.

Eating fat does not make you fat! Eating fat with excessive carbohydrates from sugars and refined grains will

If you want to feel full longer, and become lean and efficient, fuel up with saturated fats and get your carbohydrates from vegetable sources rather than sugary foods and refined grains.

High Sugar Levels Are Linked with Memory Loss

Type 2 diabetes often occurs with overweight but did you know that high sugar levels are associated with memory loss?

I read this in an article on one woman’s weight problem:
"I was becoming increasingly forgetful, leaving the cooker on, burning things, not able to remember anything," said Maureen."I was afraid that I was heading towards dementia or Alzheimer's."My doctor gave me some memory tests, which I couldn't do, and she referred me to a memory clinic."They were concerned about my very high blood sugar levels and explained that there was a link between high sugar levels and memory loss."I didn't know this but apparently when sugar levels are high, blood thickening occurs which reduces the amount of oxygen reaching the brain. This can affect memory and concentration."
This makes sense to me.  Solving your weight problem can improve the symptoms, reduce the need for medication or even eliminate Type 2 diabetes which in itself has terrible complications:
-          Short-term complications includehypoglycaemia, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), and hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state (HHS).
-          Long-term complications include how diabetes affects your eyes (retinopathy), heart (cardiovascular disease), kidneys (nephropathy), and nerves and feet (neuropathy).

If you are overweight and have Type 2 Diabetes it is time to do something about your eating habits.
