Globally, the rate of chronic disease is double the rate of infectious disease. The single most important thing you can do every day to reduce your risk of chronic disease and change your biology is choose the right foods. What you put on the end of your fork matters, as food works with all seven of our body systems for optimal function, and it contains phytochemicals critical to our evolution that helps us achieve optimal health. ~ Mark Hyman, MD

While we are living longer lives, there are some diseases that are proving difficult to beat completely, specifically they are called chronic diseases. Chronic diseases refer to conditions that last at least a year, and up to a lifetime. They typically require ongoing medical attention, affect quality of life, or both.

According to the World Health Organization, chronic diseases make up 73% of all global deaths, and an additional 60% of the global burden of disease. This latter measure is an indicator of the impact of living with illnesses and premature deaths.

Here are some contributing risk factors for contracting a chronic disease:

  • Poor nutrition
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Tobacco use
  • Excessive alcohol use

Chronic diseases affect more people than we realize. In the U.S. alone, 6 in 10 adults have at least one chronic disease. They can also compound significantly: it’s estimated that 4 in 10 adults suffer from at least two or more.

Poor Nutrition

While we understand the implications of lack of physical activity, tobacco use and excessive alcohol use, the most significant challenge we face is improving our nutrition. We can start by blaming the modern food environment for this. 

Companies like Nestle, Pillsbury, Kraft and McDonalds have some of the highest paid food scientists with one primary focus, designing flavor, mouth feel and other things such that you just want to eat more and more of the foods they sell.

These processed food companies invest huge resources into one mission - designing foods that stimulate a never-ending desire for more of their food.

To understand “what foods” we should be consuming lets start with the Glycemic Index (GI). This index assigns a number to foods based on how each bite impacts your blood sugar. GI is a powerful way to look at food, and when you use it the right way it can make it much easier to reach your goals. 

Foods low on the glycemic index appear to stave off heart disease, prevent type 2 diabetes, help you evade serious side effects if you already have diabetes, it curbs your appetite so you are easier to lose weight, and increases your energy throughout the day. 

Understanding the importance of the Glycemic Index (GI) of foods can transform the way you look at foods on your plate and will dramatically impact your metabolic health. As an example, here is a comparison of foods that have the same GI rating. 

  • Donut 🍩 = Watermelon 🍉 (76)
  • Boiled Potato 🥔 = Gatorade 🥤 (78)
  • White Pasta Noodles 🍝 = Banana 🍌 or Blueberries (51)

The GI Food Guide

To make life easier in making better food choices, I have provided a handy Food Guide (see below) for your reference to post it on your refrigerator and bring it with you to the grocery store. . This Food Guide breaks down the most common foods into three convenient categories: 

  1. Foods to Enjoy (Low Glycemic)
  2. Foods in Moderation (Medium Glycemic)
  3. Foods to Avoid (High Glycemic) 

Enhance Results with a Simple Solution

The Feel Great System is designed to make a healthy lifestyle not only doable but also enjoyable using two evidence-based food products that are clinically proven to control hunger, support healthy blood sugars, facilitates weight loss and reduces insulin resistance. 

The Feel Great System is the most effective tool that assists to bring your blood sugars back into a healthy range. The system is designed to make a healthy lifestyle not only doable but also enjoyable, without having to starve yourself or rely on willpower as you can still enjoy your favorite foods in moderation.  

The Feel Great System: Two Science-based Food Products

Unicity Balance is a patented blend of blend of soluble and insoluble fibers, phytosterols with vitamins and minerals. Unicity Balance reduces your appetite, absorbs and removes fat, promotes fat-burning ability, and decreases leptin resistance.

This matrix of fiber in Unicity Balance is specifically designed to absorb much more blood sugar and supports healthy cholesterol more effectively than OTC fiber products like Metamucil or Benefiber, which is are just a single source of fiber that act more like a laxative.

The second product, Unicity Unimate, comes from the plant called Yerba Mate. This helps in giving us a rest from constantly eating by suppressing hunger and helping the body utilize its fat for fuel. The challenge with intermittent fasting is that it's hard to maintain long-term.
