Carrying around a few extra pounds?
You’re not alone. At this point, you’re in the majority.
And while those excess pounds aren’t exactly desirable, there IS a way to cut back on any health risks they could be causing.
Plus, this trick works even if you don’t lose the weight. (Although you should certainly try, and I’ll give you a hint how to do that too, in just a moment.).
And best of all, it’s completely effortless!
NONE of those judgmental lectures.
Just one simple action you can take each day with almost NO EFFORT can undo the damage caused by…
- poor diet
- insulin resistance
- metabolic syndrome
- fatty liver disease
… and more.
Yes, all of that damage… BLOCKED. And all you need to do is down a cup or two of delicious yogurt.
The YOGURT solution for metabolic syndrome
See? I told you it was effortless!
Yogurt is great at breakfast, with lunch, as an after dinner dessert.
And it’s not JUST filling, delicious, and likely far healthier than whatever else you might be eating right now. New research finds it can ALSO protect overweight people from some of the BIGGEST health risks of all.
See, this study didn’t focus on those smug, stick-thin, and healthy people.
It looked specifically at some of the most desperate folks of all. And that is obese women already suffering from the kind of mounting health problems that put you on the fast track to chronic disease and early death.
In addition to being overweight, all the volunteers also had both fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome.
They were essentially knocking on the door of diabetes, heart disease, and more.
But yogurt helped them take a BIG step back.
Incredibly, over 24 weeks, just seven ounces of yogurt per day improved nearly every major marker of these chronic conditions.
Head off chronic health problems with dessert
Let’s start with the biggest benefit.
Ladies who ate the yogurt had LESS FAT in the liver compared to a control group of women who drank milk instead.
That’s CRITICAL because as fat builds up in the liver, the vital organ starts to malfunction. Not only does it stop breaking down fat effectively, but it also starts to develop the scars that can lead to cirrhosis and even cancer.
But yogurt was able to HALT and REVERSE this ugly process.
And that’s not all. The women who got that daily yogurt also had improvements in some of the worst signs of metabolic syndrome, including…
- insulin resistance
- lipid levels
Now, as good as this is, don’t stop there. While yogurt is a terrific source of probiotic bacteria and healthy dairy protein, there’s a way to get even BIGGER benefits.
Quit the carbs.
You can still enjoy yogurt, just not the sugary kind with the goo on the bottom. Pick plain, Greek-style instead. And many of your favorite meals, even so-called “unhealthy” foods such as steak, will still be on the menu.
But when you give up on junk carbs and added sugars, you’ll not only lose the extra weight, you’ll put a pin in metabolic syndrome and BLOCK chronic disease.
