Nutrition Tips from the Green Pharmacy Guide to Healing Foods by Dr. James A. Duke.
Cinnamon is one of the most powerful antioxidants. It floods your body with a nutrient called MHCP , which seems to activate the insulin receptors in your cells, causing them to begin using up blood sugar for energy instead of letting it rise.
Almonds were used in a study where a test group that ate a few almonds each day experienced accelerated weight loss. They lost 62% more weight than another group that consumed the same number of calories. They also lost 50%more off of their waistlines and 56% percent more of their fat mass. Almonds were shown to have properties that help control blood sugar and diabetes.
Cheddar Cheese contains a potent nutrient that signals your fat cells to stop storing fat. A national study revealed that the people who got the most of this nutrient in their daily diet were 85% less likely to be overweight. The cheese also helps intercept the fat in your foods and sweeps it out of your body before it gets packed on your belly.
