Smoothie results and how to sustain them.

People who have taken up the smoothie have used it to great effect. I wish to showcase a couple of stories here. And also mention something about the danger of regaining weight after weight loss.

Lars and Rasmus have both agreed to be interviewed and I plan to make a small video with some more details shortly.

Lars 54 :

My neighbor I discovered a few years ago has type 2 diabetes. What I didn’t know was that he had serious problems controlling his blood sugar  in spite of receiving  some of the best treatment in the world, from “Steno Diabetes Center” and “Rigshospitalet”.

For the past 10+ years he has been unable to get his pre prandial (before meals) blood sugar levels into the recommended range and it’s been steadily rising.

6 months ago he started to make smoothie every morning and after 2 months he saw that his blood sugar had fallen for the first time in 10 years from 12 to 10 mmol/l. Last month when he was at his regular quarterly checkup, his before meal blood sugar had reached the target below the recommended 7 mmol/l.  It’s a truly spectacular result given the history of his illness. According to Lars it is also achieved by increasing his daily exercise routines. He is of cause continuing his regular medical treatment, but now supplemented with the smoothie routine.

Rasmus 44 :

My brother in law is a large man, a great cook and lover of food. For the past 10 years hes been gaining weight to the point where he was almost reaching 100 kilos and a BMI close to 30. I started him up on the smoothie at Christmas this year. Shortly after he felt that he was able to control appetite with the smoothie and this gave him the courage to take a hit at a diet. He’s always been very physically active but has in general not been successful with diets. Not so this time! He went on a 1.900 calorie diet, including 1,5 l of smoothie daily, + a lot of exercise.  These days (after 8 months) he’s approaching the end of his diet and has lost 17 Kg’s. He is continuing the smoothie after the diet in order not to re- gain weight.

Keeping the weight gain may be difficult.

It’s very important to continue the smoothie routine also after the weight loss target has been reached. A recent study from Copenhagen university published in Journal of Indocrinology found that up to 1 year after loosing weight the body keeps releasing hunger stimulating hormones. This explain the yo-yo weight phenomenon that obese people often discover; that shortly after loosing a lot of weight they are unable to keep it and quickly regain the lost weight.

 

Keeping up the smoothie always may be difficult and it may be necessary to reach out to ready made solutions. Look out for soluble fiber products like; Psyllium-Husk , Chia seeds, raw Potato starch, Hi Maize, Inulin, Pectin and more all contain 50-90% soluble fibre (or resistant starch). A couple of table spoons  at breakfast added to Muesli or even drunk in a glass of water will keep the gut bacteria happy.

This will boost your soluble fiber intake also when the smoothie isn’t available.

    I am not saying your information isn’t solid., but what if you added
    a title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Smoothie results and
    how to sustain them. – Solublefibersmoothie is kinda boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post titles to get people interested.

    opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.
