Low Glycemic Index Foods
Although the terminology “low glycemic index” may be new, the concept of eating the right foods that break down more slowly to provide a steady source of energy to fuel your brain, muscles and other vital organs is not.
Our unique approach to Concierge Medicine means each nutri-therapy plan is personalized to meet the individual’s particular physiological and metabolic needs for food consumption.
Your individualized plan will be uniquely designed with simple goals to include:
Maximize the Results of Hormone Therapy
Not only will the foods you consume with a low glycemic response digest more slowly, they will also help your body maintain a relatively constant state to keep blood sugar and insulin levels low which is essential support for hormone replacement therapy.
Prevent Illness and Premature Aging
Recent studies have suggested that a middle-age bulge may do even more harm than previously thought. It may actually increase the chance for developing Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia as well as increasing your risk for diabetes, cardio-vascular disease and cancer.
Boost Your Body’s Immune Function
The human immune system is nothing short of miraculous. By supplying essential nutrients for a balanced body, it will fend off colds, bacterial infections, viruses and more serious types of disease.
Revamping the Diet for Better Health
Switching from a high glycemic diet to low gyclemic index foods centers around consuming phytonutrients (natural disease resisters), essential fats (basic building blocks needed by every living cell), lean protein (critical for growth and energy, hormone, antibody, enzyme and tissue production) and fiber.
Once you’ve completed your Executive Health Evaluation, our staff will work with you to design a personalized eating program that contains a wide variety of low glycemic index foods. Similar to our Paleolithic-era ancestors, you too will benefit from consuming nutrient-dense foods (fruits, vegetables, and lean meats with essential fatty acids) and by avoiding refined flours, overly processed foods, saturated fats, trans fats, sugars, preservatives and simple carbohydrates.
At Cenegenics® Jacksonville, our low glycemic index program makes eating the right foods simple, easy and surprisingly satisfying.
