For People with Diabetes

Figure Plan CoverHow Almased® can help People with Diabetes

Almost 24 million people suffer from diabetes in the United States – Almased® can help most of them to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle.

Good news for millions of people with diabetes: Many people who suffer from type 2 diabetes can lose weight with Almased®  while simultaneously supporting their blood levels.

This is how Almased® can help:

Scientific studies have shown that people with diabetes can support healthy insulin levels as well as the equally important leptin level by taking only 50 g of Almased® (8 level tablespoons) per day. The diet works immediately, people with diabetes lose weight and the body relaxes.

Why it is easier for people with type 2 diabetes to lose weight with Almased®?

On average, people with diabetes have a significantly higher insulin level than people without diabetes – one of the reasons why it is harder for them to lose weight. The findings of a recent scientific study are especially interesting for people with diabetes. The participants in the study used 50 g Almased® daily as part of their diet, which supported weight loss and healthy blood levels - especially the fasting blood sugar level, the fasting insulin level and the long-term blood sugar level.

The results of another Almased® study show that the leptin level improves significantly with weight loss. Leptin plays a major role in the satiety regulation of the brain (telling your body that you’re full) and in the fat burning process. In people who are overweight, those mechanisms are impaired. When weight is lost, particularly in the abdominal area, the feeling of satiety and the fat burning process are typically normalized. A diet incorporating Almased® can lead to more weight loss, particularly in the abdominal area. This means that through the Almased® the satiety regulation of the brain as well as the fat burning process can be regulated much more effectively.

Insulin and fat storage – what is the correlation?

Insulin is a "storage hormone” which regulates the carbohydrate and fat metabolisms in the body. An increased insulin level leads to more fat storage in the fat cells. Simultaneously, the breakdown of fat is inhibited. Since Almased® has an especially low glycemic index (27, glucose has 100). With a low glycemic index, the blood sugar level increases only slightly and the body releases a respectively lower amount of insulin. A lower insulin level helps the body burn more fat. Instead of using protein from muscle mass, the body takes its energy from fat deposits, as desired.

The importance of the basal metabolic rate

The basal metabolic rate is the amount of calories the body burns while in a state of rest. During a hunger phase, the body works at a minimal level. It uses the calories it gets as slowly and thoroughly as possible. The basal metabolic rate decreases and only then does it tap into fat reserves: It gets the energy it needs from muscle protein before it starts attacking the fat storage. With every diet, the body gets used to a lower basal metabolic rate instead of “going back to normal” after the diet. At the same time, the thyroid function is disturbed and the dreaded yo-yo effect sets in. This does not happen on a diet with Almased®.

The first step to success

Consume 50 g of Almased® (8 level tablespoons; 1.1 carb unit) mixed in water. Measure your blood sugar level on an empty stomach and 2 hours after drinking the Almased® shake. This is an easy way to find out how Almased® affects your blood sugar. The goal is a blood sugar level of 120-140 mg/dl after 2 hours.
