If You Are What You Eat, What Are You Eating? New Insights Into Boosting Our Metabolism 

The source and quality of our food supply have sure changed a lot in the 10,000 years since our ancestors planted the first crops.

And a 2019 study from the University of Washington links bad diets to heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. The authors say that poor diets are linked to over 11 million premature deaths worldwide every year.

But the Global Burden of Disease Study, published in 2016, puts that number at 39 million—seven out of every 10 deaths around the world!

Our diets have become piled high with unhealthy sugary beverages, high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, and processed food.

With a clear conscience can we really feast on beastly amounts of fare on the most food-focused feast day of the year, Thanksgiving?

We all know to look for healthy protein to build a strong and healthy body. But, did you know soy is 36-56 percent pure protein? And, that lunasin is a naturally occurring soy peptide that stimulates fat-burning metabolism?

Almased meal shakes are made using high-quality, non-GMO soy. The exclusive fermentation method is achieved from living enzymes in the enzyme-rich raw honey and a host of bioactive peptides, such as lunasin. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The power of soybean protein and soybean oil, each carries a health claim in full recognition of its ability to bring about heart-healthy effects in the body.

When you make a diet change that goes low in sugar, the first thing you may notice are sugar cravings. That’s your brain arguing for its habitual reward, not a genuine need for food.

What happens next is more interesting. You’ll likely notice a more positive mood, abundant energy, and other rewards of a low glycemic, high protein (LGHP) diet, such as:

  • Better management of blood sugar levels
  • Lowering the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  • Resetting of the appetite and reducing cravings
  • Greater mental clarity
  • Increased sense of well-being and overall health
  • A desire for increased activity
  • Weight loss and burn-off of stored body fat
