Vanilla Protein Pumpkin Muffins


Named Most Delicious & Healthy Muffin on the Planet

Pumpkin
is one of my favorite flavors of the fall season. And what better way
to enjoy pumpkin than with a healthy protein muffin recipe?
When
it comes to nutrition, pumpkin is a pretty healthy vegetable to include
your diet. The meat of a pumpkin is high in Vitamin A and rich in
flavonoid poly-phenolic antioxidants like leutin, xanthin, and
carotenes.
Pumpkin is also low in
calories, contains no fat, and is super high in fiber. Fiber is an
incredibly important ingredient to get more of on any weight loss plan.
Not only does it keep you feeling full because it expands in your
stomach, it also burns more calories during digestion, so it’s a great
boost to your metabolism.

Insulin Resistance Diet

Insulin Resistance Diet



This low-carbohydrate, moderate-protein and
moderate-fat diet is focused on real foods as the solution to Insulin Resistance
Syndrome (IR), sometimes called Metabolic Syndrome or Syndrome X. It is mainly
refined foods, especially sweets, combined with deficient exercise that gets
people into trouble so a program based on whole foods, not more refined food
products, is the best long-term solution in IR, and a host of other health
problems as well. It is also recommended to take a good multiple
vitamin/mineral.

Are Diabetes and Insulin Resistance Reversible? The Facts.



THE MEDICAL PROFESSION WOULD have you believe that diabetes is not
reversible and only controlling your blood sugar with drugs or insulin
will protect you from organ damage and death. But medication and insulin
can actually increase your risk of getting a heart attack or dying.


The diabetes epidemic is accelerating along with the obesity epidemic, and what you are not hearing about is another way to treat it.
