Paleo Reboot Review

Is It Paleo? - Filed under 'paleo'So I've been doing a lot of reading recently (mostly from The Paleo Solution and The Primal Blueprint) and I thought that it might be handy to write down some of what I'm trying to learn. That way I can at least get the facts straight in my head and also hopefully share with anybody who stumbles across my site!The first thing I want to go over is insulin. What is it, what does it do, how does it affect us, and how what we eat affects it. Let's look at these one by one.What is insulin?The Paleo Solution Paleo Reboot this.Insulin is critical in regulating blood sugar, body fat and aging... Insulin acts as a nutrient-storage hormone that maintains blood glucose levels. In simple terms, insulin puts nutrients into our cells.The Primal Blueprint Paleo Reboot this:Insulin delivers nutrients to all cells, but for our purposes, we'll focus on insulin's role delivering nutrients to liver, muscle and fat calls. When the system works as designed by evolution, cell receptors use insulin as a key to unlock pores within the membrane of each cell. With the cell door open, nutrients can then be stored inside the cell. Wikipedia Paleo Reboot this:Insulin is a hormone central to regulating carbohudrate and fat metabolism in the body. Insulin causes cells in the liver, muscle and fat tissue to take up glucose from the blood, storing it as glycogen in the liver and muscle. Insulin stops the use of fat as an energy source by inhibiting the release of glucagon. When insulin is absent, glucose is not taken up b body cells and the body begins to use fat as an energy source or gluconeogenesis; for example, by transfer of lipids from adipose tissue to the liver for mobilisation as an energy source.So these three sources all show that insulin is:* a hormone* responsible for eliminating excess glucose (which is toxic in the bloodstream) and storing it as fuel for laterSo how does insulin affect us in our day to day living?When insulin is working effectively, your body maintains a balance where you can maintain ideal body fat levels & stabilise your daily appetite & energy levels.When there's too much insulin in our bloodstream, our body is too focused on storing all the blood glucose it can find and thereby inhibiting the release of stored body fat for use as energy.Insulin has a counter-hormone called glucagon. So if insulin is the hormone that stores glucose in your cells, glucagon is the hormone that access carbs, protein & fat from those cells and delivers them into the bloodstream for energy.When insulin is high, glucagon is low. Because glucagon is low, you don't have any fuel in your bloodstream and your body starts sending some very familiar signals to your stomach. These signals are the cravings for something sweet. Doesn't matter what it is, but it's gotta be sweet!!To quote from The Primal Blueprint:"The mobilization [sic] of stored body fat has been our preferred energy source (and weight-control device) for a couple of million years. It's as simple as this: you cannot reduce body fat on a diet that stimulates excessiev levels of insulin production."If you over-stress your system by continually having a high level of insulin (and we're talking over years), you can look forward to such wonderful things like type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and diet-related cancers.So, by moderating your insulin production, you can balance your bodies' responses and allow it to naturally use your on-board energy supply (and yes, I'm talking about them love handles). Here's an example for you of why you need to cut shit like grains and grain-derived foods from your diet:When you ingest grains and other processed carbohydrates (like the demon that is sugar), your blood glucose spikes. This spike is a shock to our system, and the pancreas responds by secreting massive levels of insulin so that the extra glucose swimming around in your bloodstream can be stored for later. You know how if you have too many sweets and you have loads of energy, then 20 minutes or so later you have a massive crash and all you're good for is an old-fashioned nana nap? That's due to the insulin whisking all the blood glucose away and storing it in your liver & muscle tissue.Now what's your general reaction to a sugar crash? A can of V? Another coffee? All this does it start the high blood glucose cycle again. Hopefully this post makes sense; and I'll probably make more than a few edits to it in the interests of clarity. But it should make clear how important it is that we start eating correctly, but cutting out grains and refined sugars. The guy that wrote The Primal Blueprint has a 'blog called Mark's Daily Apple; which I highly recommend. He has a great post on insulin here.
