00:01 Is there such a thing as a good carbs or bad carbs,
00:04 if so what makes a good carb bad,
00:07 and a bad carb bad.
00:10 And why is it so important to have glucose
00:12 in our bodies and what is its best source.
00:14 These questions and more will be answered
00:16 authoritatively in our program entitled
00:19 Curbing the Carbs Part 2, we'll be right back.
00:47 Hi welcome to Abundant Living and
00:49 this is my beautiful wife,
00:52 now this is a second time, last time
00:54 you were reading this magazine as well,
00:55 and I am trying to introduce you,
00:57 let me just introduce you first and then maybe
01:00 Paula Eakins, okay, Paula Eakins,
01:02 okay this is my wife, okay this,
01:04 this is magazine is hot. Okay we're still on the
01:07 carbs and so you are still reading that magazine.
01:09 This time it's actually talking about the
01:11 different ones out there, it talks about the
01:13 no carb or low carb, no carb and low carb.
01:14 no carb and low carb.
01:16 Yeah, we got Dr. Atkins, the new diet revolution,
01:19 you got the south beach proteins, south beach,
01:21 power, protein power, you got the fat flush plan,
01:23 fat flush. I am telling you the names keep going on
01:26 and on and on. In fact you could eat according
01:27 to your blood type, that's another one.
01:28 All of those are out there I am telling you
01:30 and you know it's just talking about how in
01:32 the book stores, okay, where there was only
01:34 a few books that was actually you know listed
01:36 as far as books that talked about low carb,
01:38 okay, that they have actually tripled in the
01:40 amount of books, they kind of tripled within
01:42 or what the last few years I guess.
01:43 Oh yes absolutely, absolutely.
01:44 And then I think the most amazing thing is,
01:46 it talks about major food manufacturers, okay,
01:50 who have actually moved into this low carb craze,
01:53 and just goes on and on and on and on and on
01:56 and Curtis, I've got a subject, I've even
01:58 found low carb wine and I think,
02:01 it's in here, its in here, its one of them in here,
02:04 that's incredible. Dog food, low carb yes,
02:07 and cat food, it's sort of commercial,
02:09 oh it's everywhere, I know, it's everywhere.
02:10 Well, low carb craze is here to stay for,
02:12 well may not be here to stay but here for a
02:14 while anyway, I hope not I hope not, okay.
02:16 A lot of money, a lot of money is being spent
02:19 on this whole carb, okay, that's why lot of
02:23 manufacturers and you know who is
02:24 suffering a lot, well who was suffering
02:26 tremendously from it was the pasta group,
02:28 the people who were doing pasta foods,
02:30 and the bread group, the bread companies, yes,
02:31 but guess what they are even on a craze,
02:34 low carb bread, orange juice, I think that's gone
02:37 down low carb ones. No, no, no the last
02:39 commercial I saw on orange juice Curtis
02:40 was where it showed, how about oranges
02:42 were lifting weights not in a round okay,
02:45 I mean because orange is an orange,
02:46 is an oranges, and is orange okay but now
02:48 the oranges are now doing weight lifting
02:50 and they are running on treadmills and stuff,
02:51 they are trying to show you the orange juice.
02:54 Curtis, all I can say, what can you say,
02:57 is that stats right now, believe it or not
02:59 and I can understand, why people get into
03:01 these different crazes but once again,
03:03 they want something quick, easy, yes,
03:05 they don't have to give up any foods that they
03:07 really like to eat and to enjoy.
03:10 And so this is really excuse to do what they
03:12 want to do and yet gain a benefit and like
03:15 I said last time we met that,
03:19 if there is a benefit attach to something
03:21 then of course more people will be deceived
03:23 and there is a benefit of course the weight loss
03:25 not so much fat but weight loss but then
03:27 again there is a deception along down the
03:30 row lying so Satan is here to destroy us
03:32 and Jesus came to give us life and Satan
03:35 came to give us death and. So Satan has studied
03:38 anatomy physiology, he knows how our bodies
03:41 work and function so I think, we can learn
03:45 a lot more in our next, this program
03:47 in our next program too. Mixing truth with Era,
03:50 here we go the power to deceive with Satan.
03:52 Yeah, yeah, yeah, but you know God is all
03:54 about all truth, that's right,
03:55 so we talked about last time we met about
03:58 God's word that the low carb diet is not
04:01 Biblically sound for those who are Bible base
04:04 Christians and so the low carb of course
04:07 does not emphasize eating a great deal
04:09 of carbohydrates and of course God's word
04:12 emphasize carbohydrates. In Genesis 1:29
04:16 and in Genesis 3:18 then to the low carb also
04:19 emphasize eating other foods protein
04:22 and fat and some of those foods are emphasizing
04:25 that when we eat unclean foods, pork
04:29 and your shrimp and fish that does not have
04:32 skins or scales and lobster and crab
04:36 and that kind of things so those far forbidden
04:38 in the word of God. Leviticus chapter 11
04:41 and Deuteronomy chapter 14, so therefore
04:43 the low carb diet is diametrically oppose
04:47 to God's plan for mankind as far as to word
04:50 of God has concerned. I think the thing
04:52 is amazing to me too Curtis while you talking
04:53 about the same thing and that is that
04:55 I was reading here where it was saying
04:56 that in order to stay on any of these diets
04:58 I call it out in a few minutes ago,
04:59 it would mean that, that individual was spending
05:02 where between a $150 a week.
05:05 Oh! My goodness, just buying the foods
05:07 that are recommended by like the South beach
05:10 and Dr. Eakins diet you have to buy all
05:12 that items that you are asking, actually asking
05:15 you to buy so the average person can't even
05:17 spend that kind of money. So now you have
05:18 a increase of your grocery bills,
05:21 the grocery bills, with that, and a whole
05:22 family is not gonna be have to go on it
05:23 I am talking about for one individual, right,
05:25 not to be able to buy like you said as lobster
05:27 and crab. I think the other thing was amazing
05:28 to me was that of individuals who know
05:32 they are not suppose to be eating unclean foods,
05:34 hello, okay, they are actually questioning now,
05:37 whether it's okay to even to eat the unclean
05:40 foods when the Bible, yes, has already said
05:42 what we're suppose to do. And this is since
05:43 we got into one website where you know
05:46 even vegetarians want to go in this low carb diet
05:49 and of course the low card diet emphasizing
05:51 eating meat and fat and animal products
05:54 so there is even a chapter in one of these
05:56 low carb diet there is a chapter on low carb
05:58 in vegetarian, but of course not meat there
06:01 but of course you have your milk, eggs
06:03 and cheese, oh yeah, so you're back we started
06:05 with the cholesterol saturated fat, yeah.
06:06 So, there is no way getting around God's word
06:09 that is the standard of truth. Now so,
06:13 now you read a magazine there and let's go
06:15 into some of things about different types of
06:18 carbohydrates because we need to understand
06:20 that all carbohydrates are not quite
06:23 equal correct, absolutely, absolutely.
06:25 So we're talking about the good carbs,
06:27 the bad carbs, what makes a good carb good
06:30 and what makes a bad carb bad.
06:32 Let's go to our next graphic and first graphic
06:34 and lets look at this, the Types of Carbs.
06:37 Number one we have simple,
06:40 simple carbohydrates, carbs carbohydrates
06:43 for sure, in that kind of group you have fruits
06:45 and vegetables. Now number two you have
06:48 what we call Complex. In that group you
06:51 have grains, or whole grains and legumes
06:55 and then the last one you have is called Refined,
06:59 that's when to Coarse Parts are removed refine.
07:04 So now honey let's comment on those
07:06 three types of carbohydrates and how
07:09 they act in the body. Well once again
07:10 when we think about the body system
07:12 we think about an anatomy physiology,
07:14 okay, or the body only looks at the chemistry
07:16 of foods even though we might look at a item
07:18 like an apple or a banana, or rice.
07:21 The body sees the chemistry of that food
07:23 is able to identify it by it's chemical
07:25 configuration, okay, the fats, the proteins,
07:27 the carbs all have their own chemistry
07:30 that the body can see. Now when you talk
07:32 about something like simple you know
07:33 of course now we are talking about,
07:35 we call one chain, which means there is a
07:37 chain one mono and then with that chain
07:41 is the rest of link to the carb, okay,
07:43 alright. And then we talk about which you
07:44 always said the food and vegetables are part
07:46 of that group. We talk about a complex.
07:48 Now we are talking about a diet,
07:50 which is two chain and the hook once again
07:53 of the carbohydrate. And then finally the last
07:57 one we call refine would be I am sorry,
08:00 complex would be the poly which means many,
08:04 many chains hooked up together,
08:05 I saw your face looking strange.
08:07 Then, and then refine would be, okay,
08:09 the one where nothing is left but the endosperm
08:11 the brand and the core of it, is actually missing
08:16 and so then you get that white spongy portion,
08:19 okay, okay. So, so we have, so basically
08:21 the whole chain for carbohydrates coming
08:24 to a one, a two or poly, okay.
08:27 So again these simple, all carbohydrates are have
08:31 a simple sugar molecules, that's right,
08:33 okay mono one saccharide sugar, monosaccharide
08:36 that's the fruit, and then you have vegetables
08:40 also have a simple molecule too, that's right,
08:43 but there is one attached to another,
08:45 so that's dye that still a simple carbohydrates
08:48 that's a vegetable and then anything more
08:50 than two is poly like you mentioned before
08:52 that's complex the whole grain. And so,
08:55 when we refined a complex and you gave
08:59 a good example of the wheat and when you
09:02 remove the germ, you removed a brand then
09:07 what you have left is the endosperm the soft
09:09 white sponge portion of the grain,
09:11 that's why white bread is so light and airy,
09:14 because nothing left but the endosperm,
09:16 the coarse parts have been removed,
09:18 so we need complex everything intact,
09:21 so we are talking about, I guess what you're saying
09:23 whole foods then. We need foods the whole,
09:25 not refined, just like they, not refined,
09:27 not refined. As a matter of fact there is a
09:28 new term out called good carbs bad carbs,
09:32 that's right. And now this is Dr. David Katz
09:35 from Yale School Of Public Health made a comment,
09:37 okay okay, and he said that a diet is rich
09:39 in fiber and complex carbohydrates,
09:42 which would include your whole grains
09:44 and of course your beans and then your simple
09:46 carbohydrates would be your fruits and your
09:48 vegetables, okay. He says it have been shown
09:50 in a wide array of studies to be associated with,
09:53 listen to this, okay, longevity,
09:55 longevity alright, lasting weight control, okay,
09:59 okay it regulates the serotonin levels,
10:02 where you have the good mood not the bad
10:05 mood swings. A lot of people need those carbs
10:07 for that too, absolutely, absolutely,
10:09 but we are not going there, you know,
10:10 low risk for cancer, low risk for cancer,
10:12 low risk for heart disease, because the fiber,
10:13 low risk for diabetes, antioxidants,
10:15 and low risk for gastrointestinal diseases,
10:19 okay. Alright, and now these are the ones called
10:21 the good ones, these are the ones you know
10:22 you want to eat we already named those.
10:24 Let's look at those refined. Now refined
10:25 the coarse parts removed, okay the white bread,
10:27 white rice, refined that's right that's
10:29 why we're talking about that we call as bad carbs,
10:31 right, okay. Because, they actually introduce
10:33 to our system no nutrition,
10:35 but lots of calories, okay that is your
10:37 white rice, your white breads, your commercial
10:39 breads that have lot of the white stuff
10:41 in them as well, your cookies and your chips,
10:43 I know somebody is feeling is getting hurt
10:45 out there. Oh you get some of my feelings,
10:46 you are starting your candy bars
10:48 what can I say and what happens is these
10:50 foods Curtis may go into the system, okay,
10:52 because they are so easy assimilated,
10:55 they give us that spike real quick that high,
10:58 the glucose high, the glucose high
11:00 and then. So the higher the spike,
11:03 the greater they drop.
11:05 There you go, there you go, okay,
11:06 and then you really go into a serious mood
11:08 swing then. It doesn't have that sustainability,
11:09 that's a complex carb we have, good comments,
11:12 good comments. Because we need the simple
11:14 and complex together, that's right, intact,
11:16 intact, but not refined or the coarse parts
11:18 do not need to be removed, and you get all
11:21 the good benefits, okay alright, excellent.
11:22 Well I guess one of the questions I want to ask
11:24 you and that is. But before we go into that,
11:26 yeah, because I remember one person
11:28 said, very popular person, television person
11:31 said that oh I don't eat any bread at all,
11:34 we heard it a lot, and so we need to differentiate
11:36 between the types of bread that needs
11:38 to be eaten, and types of bread that does not
11:40 need to be eaten, so again we are talking
11:42 about whole wheat 100 percent whole
11:45 wheat bread. We need the complex and bread
11:48 is a very good staple for our diet,
11:51 I mean that's why even Jesus turn himself,
11:53 I am the bread of life. You get everything
11:56 when you get Jesus Christ, so you know from
11:58 the word of God you know Jesus alluded
12:00 to the fact that bread is a very good staple
12:03 around the world, so we need that, okay.
12:06 Well, one of the question I have for you then,
12:09 what is the most important thing that
12:12 we get from the carb group, I mean how does
12:14 it help us and benefit us, okay.
12:15 One of the most important things we get from
12:17 carbohydrates, okay, and I'm talking about
12:20 this is glucose. The body needs glucose to function
12:27 everyday in our life, as far as mental function
12:31 is concern, the brain, the nerve cells,
12:34 the neurons, the same thing, they need glucose
12:37 to function. Even when we're sleeping
12:39 the brain is still active, so we need a constant
12:42 flow of glucose even in the central nervous
12:45 system and also in the brain as well.
12:47 And of course, carbohydrates that
12:51 do not last in the brain cells as long,
12:54 so we need a constant flow of carbohydrates
12:57 to get that glucose into our brain for clarity
13:00 for thinking, and cognition,
13:02 for studying etcetera. The brain uses 2/3rd
13:07 of all the glucose of the body,
13:10 three times more glucose than rest of the body.
13:12 So without glucose the brain or central nervous
13:15 system will definitely suffer.
13:18 Also glucose is needed for the synthesis of
13:20 nucleic acids such as RNA, DNA,
13:26 so this very vital as far as glucose is concern.
13:30 Again remember folks we do not get glucose
13:33 when we eat foods that contain protein,
13:37 we do net get glucose when we eat food
13:39 that contain mostly fat, we only get glucose
13:41 from foods that mostly contain carbohydrates.
13:45 So again this gives us a good added reason
13:47 why we need a constant flow of foods that
13:51 contain carbohydrates on a daily basis,
13:55 so the primary source of food is glucose
13:57 and we get that from carbohydrates.
13:59 Now, I think that is very very important especially
14:01 I have notice sometimes that I've done lifting
14:04 weights, okay, and our daughter kept saying
14:06 to me you know you need to really make sure
14:09 that you get some glucose in before
14:10 you start lifting, that's right, because
14:12 it's very very necessary and so my regime
14:14 before that time was I would just go ahead
14:16 on and just lift the weights,
14:17 but now I've discovered that I actually get
14:19 more staying power, more staying power,
14:20 when I've actually gotten in some carbs,
14:22 then go lift the weights, okay, okay,
14:24 good point. I actually have a longer duration
14:27 as well. I like now and did Dave tell on that
14:29 I think our next graphic because I think that
14:32 will explain what you just said about what
14:35 other functions of glucose other than what
14:37 we just mentioned about the brain cells
14:38 and neurons. So what are some of other
14:40 functions, I think we have a graphic on it,
14:42 don't we. Yes we do, yes we do. Okay,
14:43 let's look at that graphic.
14:45 Well in this graphic you will see the dietary
14:47 carbohydrates which is the foods we eat
14:49 that has the carbs in them.
14:50 Of course that increases the blood glucose levels,
14:53 and from there it alerts the pancreas that
14:56 we need to have some insulin in order
14:58 to be able to get that glucose into the blood
15:01 and into the cell. The first thing it does
15:03 it goes over to the liver in the form of glycogen
15:07 and in that glycogen is stored in the liver
15:09 and from that it only lasts for a few days
15:12 also in the same result it goes into the muscle
15:17 and the muscle once again is storing
15:19 this glycogen and anything Curtis in excess
15:22 our body need then moves down to the fat
15:25 storage cells, and once it gets there of course
15:29 we got problems. Okay, okay we have problems,
15:33 so that kind of necessary now of course even
15:35 those in a liver and also in a muscle as
15:37 glycogen remember it has a small
15:39 duration of time, doesn't stay
15:42 there forever, okay, so. Now let's,
15:44 so now that's a good graphic because
15:46 we need to emphasize something now,
15:47 when we eat food that contain carbohydrate,
15:51 it first has two major pathways one to fill up
15:56 the liver store sugar, we call that glycogen,
15:59 and other goes into the muscles
16:01 and are storing to the muscles for physical
16:03 activity anything in excess goes into stores
16:06 fat cells that is a small pathway well that
16:10 was left over. So, the bulk of it is gonna be
16:14 in the liver and also in the muscles
16:17 and then very small amount is gonna be
16:19 in store into fat cells. So, then in of course
16:21 to the blood glucose go down to is
16:23 normalcy as well. Now of course that small
16:25 amount is made into these fat cells,
16:27 also want that being something that when
16:29 a fat cells are larger than they need to be
16:33 they actually move over and make more fat cells,
16:35 and of course this is where the increase
16:36 weight and where problems is gonna be with
16:40 over weight, okay, being over weight.
16:41 We're gonna go more into that next time
16:44 we meet about, if carbohydrate really
16:48 is the main culprit in weight gain.
16:50 We're gonna look at that in relation to,
16:51 to fat and also protein as well, alright.
16:55 Well, I think we're moving along with here,
16:58 I guess we want to look at, a one cell approach.
17:02 Let's go to our last graph and let's see
17:04 what we're talking about a one cell.
17:07 Alright here we have is a cell here
17:10 and this is just a isolated one cell approach,
17:13 when we eat carbohydrate of course
17:16 it turns in the glucose. It does alert the
17:18 pancreas as my wife said in the last graphic
17:21 and the pancreas release a course
17:23 of insulin. Insulin is represented by the
17:26 round blue ball there. That insulin attaches
17:29 to the cell wall, when that happens it triggers
17:34 to glucose entry and those doors open up
17:38 and then the glucose itself which is
17:40 represented by the triangle enters in through
17:44 those doors into the cell and that's
17:47 how are billions of cell receive energy in that
17:52 fashion and that's the way the creator
17:54 God had designed every living cell in our body,
17:59 including the brain and including all cells
18:02 in our body it works just like that.
18:05 We are created fearfully, wonderfully made.
18:07 Now next time we meet, we will demonstrate
18:10 why people loose weight on the low carb diet
18:14 because that cell acts very differently
18:18 then what we just seem just now,
18:20 so that's way they suppose to work.
18:22 Next time we'll tell you how it should not work
18:24 or to back up plan which is not that accurate
18:26 at all, but that's how the cells receive energy
18:29 on a day to day basis. Well you can see
18:31 we are not finished with the subject,
18:33 no we are not. We still got more to talk to you
18:35 about and so you want to make sure which you,
18:37 you know keep up with the programs now one
18:40 top of that you probably say, is she gonna cook
18:42 anything, the answer is yes. As a matter of fact
18:45 we're gonna be fixing a Yummy Granola,
18:48 get your paper and your pencil
18:49 and meet us in the kitchen.
