THE INSULITE PRE-DIABETES SYSTEM – ADDICTION AWARENESS PLAN
Insulite Laboratories, we have developed a 4th element to the Insulite
Pre-Diabetes System: Addiction Awareness. Learning about and overcoming
addiction to certain types of foods is crucial if you want to transform
your health by losing weight. A little known fact is that even lean individuals
can be addicted to food.
The goal of our Addiction Awareness Plan is to wean you off of your
negative addiction to carbohydrates and sugars. We do this in several
Carb Reduction without Withdrawal Symptoms
In order to avoid the dreaded "rebound effect" (the immediate
regaining of weight after stopping a diet), the Insulite System slowly
reduces your intake of carbs and sugars, by minimal amounts each week,
until you reach an optimum level of these foods. This considerably slow
reduction in consumption of carbs/sugars tricks your brain into accepting
as normal the increasingly smaller amounts of these negative foods.
An extra benefit of this gradual approach enables you to avoid withdrawal
symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, depression and drowsiness. It is
the effort to alleviate your withdrawal symptoms, such as anxiety and
false hunger pains, which drives you over and over again to ingest larger
and larger amounts of carbs/sugars.
Additionally, your addiction to carbs/sugars is primarily driven by
the profound ability of these foods to stimulate your dopamine, serotonin
and endorphin brain circuits. These circuits are the neurochemical pathways
which produce your feelings of pleasure and contentment, as well as helping
you dull both emotional and physical pain.
The circuits that are stimulated by high carbohydrate foods and sugars
are the same addictive circuits that are stimulated by drugs such as
alcohol, cocaine and heroin. This is why dieting is so difficult
- and willpower is not enough - to make a permanent lifestyle change.
Laboratories recognizes that exercise also stimulates these same pathways.
Therefore, while the Insulite Nutrition Plan is slowly weaning you off
carbs/sugars, the Insulite Exercise Plan is gradually stimulating these
same neural pathways, thereby directing you toward the level of physical
activity that is right for you.
The end result is that these important neurochemical pathways stay balanced
and food withdrawal symptoms are eliminated or at least greatly reduced.
In a reasonable period of time, this program can enable you to prefer
exercising over ingesting carbs/sugars as a primary source of pleasure,
contentment and emotional balance.
Alleviating Withdrawal with Cooperative Behavior
Recent research shows that any time you engage in cooperative behaviors
- such as volunteering or being part of a team effort - with the end
goal of helping yourself and/or others -the dopamine, serotonin and endorphin
circuits mentioned above are stimulated. One reason that 12 step programs
and other support groups are so successful is that being part of a group
or working with others helps stimulate these circuits, thus greatly alleviating
the withdrawal symptoms of participants.
The Insulite Support Network provides a similar cooperative platform
which helps our clients mitigate their withdrawal symptoms. In addition
to receiving weekly messages of motivation and information, customers
have the opportunity of communicating with us at any time. This creates
a symbiotic, cooperative, healing and helping environment that has the
capacity to elevate moods, increase feelings of contentment and lessen
the emotional distress that often comes about from making major lifestyle
