Diatrix is a dietary supplement with key ingredients that are designed to help you lose weight and overcome the many obstacles that occur from having diabetes.
There are three main goals completing the Diatrix protocol.
*Lower blood sugar levels
*Maintain both your weight loss and blood sugar levels
This is a diet protocol. It is meant to change and challenge the way we think and act around the foods we eat on a daily basis. It isn’t meant to be easy, but it is meant to be life changing. As such your diligence and strict adherence will be key to your success. Any variation or ‘slips’ will likely bring negative results in the end goals that you set for yourself.
Keep in mind that a supplement alone will likely not be enough for you to lose the weight and achieve the results that you want. With a combination of dieting, exercise, and supplementation, it is fully possible to remove type 2 diabetes according to countless articles and publications. Type 1 diabetes cannot be fully cured. However, it can be treated and maintained through the lifestyle changes of dieting, exercise, and supplementation. We’ll show you how you can start making these dramatic changes and improvements to your health and lifestyle.
LOW CARB DIETS HAVE BEEN CLINICALLY PROVEN TO HELP THE FIGHT AGAINST TYPE 2 DIABETES.
A low-carb diet is also closely linked to the hormone insulin, which is the main fat-building hormone. The lower the amount of fast-acting or concentrated carbohydrates you eat, the less significant the increase will be of your blood sugar. The less significant increase on your blood sugar, the less of the fat-building hormone insulin you will need (either injected or made by your body) to stabilize your blood sugar. As blood sugars decrease, the efficiency of insulin increases, further minimizing insulin levels in your body, with the result that existing body fat will start to metabolize as well. It will literally just “melt away”, as they say.
In general, a low-carb diet provides the nutrients that people need without the excess carbohydrate that cause high blood sugars. In addition, protein, fat and slow-acting carbohydrates tend to be broken down more slowly and continuously. Following this diet will typically result to feeling satisfied much longer after eating. It’s also important to note that this diet is a lifestyle change, and does not necessarily have an “end date” where you can eventually go back to eating whatever you want. Once started you should always be mindful of what you eat for the rest of your life.
There are no “treat days” to this diet (a treat day is a day set aside usually within a week where you can go nuts and eat whatever you want). Obesity is directly related to carbohydrate addiction and constant snacking. It’s much simpler to just give up the treats than to have the self-discipline to eat only one small portion of sweets on a treat day. When most people give up on fast-acting carbohydrates, their desire and need to snack goes away too.
There are no phases to this diet. The amount of carbohydrates you ought to take will remain essentially constant for life. Protein amounts can be adjusted depending on the amount of physical activity. In general, phasing is extremely difficult for diabetics due to blood sugar levels. We want you to have results that will last the rest of your life. With no phasing, the diet protocol is also much simpler to follow. However, with that being said, it might take some time adjusting to the diet completely right from day 1. If you can do it, great! Work into it over a week if you need to.
In fact, the only thing you really need to remember are these 3 numbers. 8B-12L-12D. What do these stand for? 8 carbs for Breakfast, 12 carbs for Lunch, 12 carbs for Dinner.
On The Diatrix Diet, you will be focusing around these numbers throughout your meals each day. The diet consists of 8 grams of slow-acting carbohydrates for breakfast, 12 grams of slow-acting carbohydrates for lunch, 12 grams of slow-acting carbohydrates for dinner.
Slow carbs are carbohydrates that digest slowly. They keep you feeling full for a longer time period and also release energy to the bloodstream in a more steady flow. Slow-acting carbs include oatmeal, bananas, whole-wheat pasta, black beans, brown rice, sweet potatoes, lentils, oranges, whole-wheat bread and more. These carbs don't cause your blood sugar to spike, which keeps the amount of insulin in your bloodstream level. They provide long-lasting energy, reduce hunger pains and help to keep the gastrointestinal system working optimally.
The opposite of slow acting carbohydrates, fast acting carbs are carbohydrates that digest very quickly, and cause your insulin levels to spike. These are often used by athletes as an immediate fuel source right after a workout. They are typically man made and can be found in the following foods: White bread, sorbet, Gatorade, white rice, baked potatoes, cantaloupes, watermelons, most cereals, bagels, spaghetti, soda, and jelly beans. Later on, we will provide you a full list of foods you should typically avoid to help with your diet.
We’ve provided the complete list for each of these ingredients so you know what you’re taking and why.
1-Alpha Lipoic Acid – Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant (a substance that protects against cell damage). ALA is found in certain foods, such as liver, spinach, broccoli, and potatoes. ALA helps prevent neuropathy and can also reduce blood glucose levels.
2 -Vitamin E – Vitamin E has been shown to lower insulin resistance. In other words, your body’s insulin will become more effective at lowering blood sugars.
3-Omega 3 – Qualified health claims from the FDA show supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Studies show that omega-3 fatty acids lower triglycerides, but do not affect blood glucose control, total cholesterol, or HDL (good) cholesterol in people with diabetes.
4-EGCG Green Tea Extract – EGCG is a polyphenol found in green tea and may protect against cardiovascular disease and have a beneficial effect on insulin activity and glucose control.
5- Asian Ginseng (root) – Ginseng helps reduce fasting blood sugar levels and body weight. It can also elevate mood and improve psycho-physiological performance (improving your ability to process thoughts, emotions, and behavior).
6-Fenugreek Trigonella Foenum-Graecum - The fiber-rich fraction of fenugreek seeds can help lower blood sugar levels in people with diabetes, and to a lesser extent, for lowering blood cholesterol. Additionally, the soluble fiber content of fenugreek can help in aiding weight control.
7-Chromium (picolinate) - The body requires small amounts of Chromium to function properly. Some people with diabetes take chromium in an effort to improve their blood glucose control.
8-Vanadium – Vanadium is a mineral that over time acts similar to insulin in transporting glucose to their cells.
9-Biotin – This helps improve blood sugar control and reduce cholesterol levels. In addition, when combined with Chromium, the effectiveness of both is multiplied to a greater effect.
