Lose Weight

Most people concerned with weight loss think that calories and fat are the main problem. They aren’t. The main cause of weight gain is the blood sugar spikes and crashes leaving you quickly feeling tired and having cravings for foods that will give you that quick boost of energy only to go down again and that cycle continues, taking away your energy. Calorie counts do matter, however, regulate your blood sugar and you regulate your weight. It may sound unreal, but, really, it’s science: the science of complete nutrition, including the idea of fast carbs vs. slow carbs. Fast carbs, from refined flour and sugar products like white breads, cookies, crackers, soda and many breakfast cereals, release sugar into the bloodstream rapidly. Granola Gourmet products are low-glycemic, meaning that carbohydrates are used efficiently. By controlling hunger you will be able to lose weight.

Control Hunger

sugar addiction

While eating a diet of complete nutrition in your main meals or snacking your diet should consist of Low Glycemic “slow” carbs, dietary fiber, quality proteins and heart healthy fats all contributing to a sustained release of energy. When your blood sugar doesn’t spike – going too high, the calories can go to energy and not fat. If your blood sugar doesn’t go too low you won’t get those cravings which set you up for the spike/crash cycle and over eating. If your body isn’t going through that cycle, you are satisfied with eating less; less calories and your calories are going to energy not adding fat to your body. It is not only sugar that cause these cravings; it is also high glycemic foods whether they are salty, savory or sweet that causes our blood sugar to spike and cause these cravings. Granola Gourmet products are low glycemic and satisfy your hunger and cravings throughout the day. Eat them as a snack in between meals.
