Australian researcher Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller cites in her new book The Glucose Revolution, that when you eat a carbohydrate – any sugary or starchy food – your blood sugar goes up. If it rises slowly, that’s ideal; however, if it soars quickly, this could lead to serious health threats.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School have also cited that a spike in blood sugar can double or triple your risk of developing Type 2 (adult onset) diabetes. Dr. Brand-Miller has created a Glycemic Index that ranks foods based on how quickly they raise blood sugar. High-glycemic-index foods make blood sugar jump; low- glycemic-index foods cause a slower rise.

Eat health giving legumes with abandon, such as lentils, soybeans, lima and kidney beans, etc., for they promote a gradual blood sugar rise and have a low-glycemic index.

Don’t worry about carrots spiking blood sugar. Wide reports that carrots are bad for blood sugar are wrong.

Add Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar or fresh lemon juice to foods. Studies show only a few tsps in a salad dressing, over veggies, etc. helps lower blood sugar because the acid slows stomach emptying and promotes better digestion.

Eating organic brown rice, lentils and whole grain pastas are best. They help normalize blood sugar and reduce appetite as well as help in the weight loss because they are filling.

If you snack, choose fresh organic fruits, even popcorn, never eat jelly beans – they spike your blood sugar.

Eat fresh, organic vegetables. Think of salad vegetables as “free” foods, with no significant impact on blood sugar or weight. It’s best to avoid fatty foods, sugars, meat, etc.

Avoid all processed, refined foods: refined breads, cereals, cookies, crackers, desserts etc. These refined starches zip through your digestive tract, raising your blood sugar.

Life and Nerve Force flows through nerves at all times. The more power you furnish to your nerves, the healthier and more well-balanced you will be. You’ll get more out of life and have a greater chance of reaching the goals you wish to achieve! We all want to develop a strong mind in a strong body. We all want to be successful in life and reach our dreams and fulfill our life goals. We’d like to share with you the ingredients of a winning philosophy.

We’ve seen it proven in the successful people we have known. You’ve probably heard the phrase “The Will to Win” so many times that it has become a cliché, but stop and look at it afresh and realize its true significance. You must have this “Will to Win” if you are going to build powerful Nerve Force in your body. This is the indispensable first ingredient in this program. There’s no better time to build your “Will to Win” than during your meditation and prayer periods.

Tell yourself over and over that nothing and no one is going to stop you from building powerful Nerve Force! During your morning meditation and prayer tell yourself that you are not going to let anyone drain you of your emotional energy – no matter what they do. If someone tries to irritate, nag or torment you, you are going to have the “Will to Win” over such circumstances. That “Will to Win” will keep you from stooping to another person’s low level. Don’t let anyone drag you down to their sorry level of emotional instability! It’s not always possible to avoid people who are so miserable, unhappy and low in Nerve Force that they want to drag others down into the same state.

Build your Nerve Force and make your “Will to Win” so strong that you will not be affected by these negative personalities!
