What is the BSD?
The food we eat and the drinks we drink today, high in sugar and easily digestible carbohydrates, are not only making us fat, but are putting us at risk of type 2 diabetes, strokes, dementia, cancer and a lifetime on medication.
More than a third of adults in the UK now have raised blood sugar levels or are at risk of developing diabetes
– and most don’t know it.
The Blood Sugar Diet is a game-changing approach to this epidemic. Anyone wanting to lose stomach fat, reduce the risk of chronic disease, prevent or reverse Type 2 Diabetes or stay off medication should consider a strong focus on managing their blood sugars.
This is a 12-week, evidence-based programme designed to reverse your blood sugars.
What is the BSD?
The Blood Sugar Diet (BSD) is based on more than ten years of research carried out by, amongst others, scientists at Newcastle University in the UK. It is based on the first diet that, in clinical trials, has been shown to improve, even reverse, cases of type 2 diabetes or prediabetes. It is all about getting rid of tummy fat and keeping it off.
The Blood Sugar Diet is based on eating a low carbohydrate Mediterranean style diet. Refined, starchy carbohydrates cause rapid blood sugar spikes, followed by a rapid drop as your body processes it and converts it to fat around your stomach. This leaves you hungry only hours after eating. The BSD contains lots of green and coloured vegetables, plenty of protein and, you may be pleased to hear, moderate amounts of healthy fats such as olive oil and dairy products such as full fat unsweetened yoghurt, which keep you feeling full for longer – reducing your body’s demands to snack.
By reducing calories to 800 calories a day, your body rapidly burns fats and lowers your blood sugars. The belief that slow and gradual weight loss is more effective than a rapid change is increasingly being discarded – as some of America’s leading obesity experts pointed out in a review article in the New England Journal of Medicine[iv] in 2013.
