What You Haven’t Been Told
“…The CRUCIAL Missing Piece to the Hypoglycemic Index and Acne Research “But what happens once the muscles and liver are totally loaded to capacity with sugar?
Well your body deals with excess sugar in 2 ways…
1. It excretes it through the kidneys in the urine.
2. The liver converts it into long-chain triglycerides (lard) to be stored as fat.
“Overflowing” Your “Sugar Reservoir”… The Disastrous Results
So if you “overflow the bath tub” what you’re doing is overloading your blood stream with lard. The same blood and lymph that supplies your skin is also transporting lard to the fat cells where it is stored until you burn it off through physical exercise.
Loading your blood and lymph with this excess lard is what causes that greasy forehead look. So you do not want to run high blood “fat” levels by ingesting too many carbohydrates and simple sugars at any one time.
In addition to that, to deal with all the blood sugars that overwhelmed your system your body has to excrete a surge of insulin and other androgens at one time. All these hormones in your blood at one time overwhelm your liver’s ability to deactivate and expel them.
So overflowing the “tub” upsets hormonal balance.
The key here is not “overflowing” the tub. If the water is running out of the tub quickly due to a high metabolic rate then you can ingest more sugars and starches. And in fact at times of high physical activity you need more sugars and starches.
It is not so much the rate at which foods turn to sugar (what the hypoglycemic index of a food reveals) that is important, but whether you overwhelm your system with too much sugar at any one time (the volume). So you can see why the hypoglycemic index is too simplistic a perspective when it comes to acne. Continued »
