A new term has been coined to demonstrate the parallel line between diabetes and obesity. Diabesity is the realization that diabetes and obesity go together like peanut butter and jelly, like spaghetti and meatballs, or like Doritos and chili cheese dogs (if you grew up like I did).
The real underlying issue is that obesity and being dangerously overweight has become a societal norm. You will be shocked and a little disturbed when you find out what the statistics are today. But, more so, you're going to be driven like never before to not have your name listed in the ranks of people who are stricken with diabesity.
This condition has become a societal norm because, as Dr. Francine Kaufman says, "Our ancient genes and our modern environment have collided." You can not go more than a couple miles in this country and not see a chain of fast food restaurants, we are bombarded by chemicals in our food, water, and air supply, and we are more overworked and under-rested than at any other point in human history. What we are seeing now is a result of our collective decisions, but this can all change starting now.
Today you're going to learn the ins and outs of how diabetes is created, how it's reversed, and how to prevent it from happening in the first place. You're also going to learn EXACTLY how body fat gets created in a way that you've never heard before. In particular, we're going to focus on that especially troublesome fat that accumulates in the midsection, so that you can finally take control of the Battle of the Bulge.
