If you have ever had a family member or friend with Diabetes, you can tell just how terrible that disease can be. Diabetes can be a predisposing factor for blindness, higher blood pressure levels, kidney failure and in turn fluid retention, and even heart disease. Let's not forget the non healing wounds that occur as a result of diabetes.

Why is this connected? When you consume a carbohydrate it quickly converts to blood glucose, which is sugar. To counteract the damage glucose will do if consumed in too high of an amount, insulin is released much like an antiserum although it does play a role in metabolism beyond that. When insulin is released far too often in far too great of an amount by the Pancreas, the organ which releases it, there are problems with insulin resistance. The body naturally finds a work around for the antiserum.When that happens the body is damaged by the excess glucose which is, in fact, diabetes.
So, just how often were our ancestors forced to consume carbohydrates? Hardly ever! They ate meats, and they did without sometimes. However they did not eat a lot of carbohydrates. Therefore there was less insulin release, and less metabolic issues to be had.
Now why exactly would we harm ourselves by eating a high carbohydrate diet? Because it is quicker? Easier? It is time to make the change that your body need to live healthy and prevent aging. Eat more meat and less carbs, listen to your ancestors, and enjoy life!
