WHAT IS A CARBOHYDRATE CRAVING?
You have a compelling hunger for carbohydrate heavy foods. Your hunger gets worse the more you try to ignore it. When you give in to this craving and gorge on junk food / sweets / pizza or bread you feel guilty but not always satisfied. Before long, this cycle starts again. This is a carbohydrate craving.
WHY DO WE CRAVE CARBOHYDRATES?
You have gone too long without eating, you haven’t eaten enough PROTEIN (click on to link to explanation in diet section) , you haven’t eaten enough FAT (click on to link to explanation in diet section) your caloric intake is too low, you haven’t had enough sleep, you are stressed… or when you have eaten too many carb heavy foods.
Yes, eating refined carbs, sugar and junk foods make us want to eat more of the same!
OVEREATING MIGHT MAKE US FAT… BUT BEING FAT MAKES US OVER EAT.
We are losing the fight against obesity, because we have forgotten how to eat. Convenience foods and snacks laden with sugar and refined carbs and not balanced by healthy protein and healthy fats instantly spike our insulin and blood sugar causing us crave the same foods we have just eaten.
Not too many years ago low fat was the diet fad. So the food manufacturers replaced the fat in processed foods with the most addictive food on the planet,
Nearly half of us are now obese. No surprise that sugar and carbohydrate addiction dominated the news in 2015.
ARE WE NOW PROGRAMMED TO BE FAT?
In some cases, yes. But we can alter that programme. Benefits of the gene Sirt1 have been researched since the early 2000’s, most recently for the purpose of cravings and addictions. Our levels of Sirt1 decline rapidly with age, sedentary lifestyles, and diets heavy in refined carbohydrates and sugars. By increasing our levels of Sirt 1 we can switch on our skinny gene….and think thin.
STEMCRAVE SIRT1 THERAPY nasal spray goes beyond the diet fads to target the cause of our cravings and weight gain.
If you have reached an age where you can’t lose weight the way you used to, if you have no energy and if your life revolves around your addiction to all foods that you shouldn’t be eating, the likelihood is your SIRT1 levels are depleted.
Increasing our SIRT1 levels gives instruction to our brains to think like a thin person. Higher SIRT1 levels will increase our insulin sensitivity, lower our blood glucose levels and increase the energy output of our mitochondria, the power houses of our cells. Ultimately decreasing our cravings for sweets, junk foods and carbohydrate rich foods.
