What is Metabolic Syndrome ?

Metabolic Syndrome is what happens to most people who follow bad modern lifestyle habits. More precisely, Metabolic Syndrome is the name we give to a person’s dysfunctional metabolismThis imbalanced metabolism is not a healthy physiological state but neither is it a disease per se.

It’s like an unhealthy soil out of which diseases like diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and Alzheimer’s disease grow.

Metabolic Syndrome is defined by a set of 5 criteria: fasting triglycerides (blood fat), fasting blood sugars, fasting HDL cholesterol, the circumference of your waist and your resting blood pressure.

“One way to guard against Syndrome X is to ignore the “best” medical advice, to shun the low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet everyone “knows” is good for the heart.

If you have Syndrome X—and 60–75 million Americans do— that “good” diet can be deadly.

If you have the syndrome, carefully dieting to lower your total cholesterol or LDL cholesterol won’t solve the problem.

In fact, conscientiously doing so may make a heart attack even more likely.”

Do you have Metabolic Syndrome ?

There’s more than a 1 in 3 chance that you have Metabolic Syndrome.

You can know if you have it by measuring the 5 criteria to see whether or not you’re above or below 3 of the 5 values.

Knowing that you have Metabolic Syndrome gives you specific targets to improve and thus reduce your odds of suffering from the the diseases growing out of this dysfunctional metabolic state.

By analogy, once your car’s dashboard warning lights turn on you know now it’s time to fix a smaller problem instead of a bigger one later on.

So if your Metabolic Syndrome warning lights turn on, you can manage that smaller problem now rather than a serious disease later on.

How to treat Metabolic Syndrome?

Metabolic Syndrome mainly arises out of poor lifestyle habits which must be countered by replacing them with better ones

#1 Poor sleep: your biological clock isn’t synchronoized with your environment’s light and dark cues.

#2 Low-quality nutrition: your diet includes flour, (added) sugars and seed oils.

#3 Being sedentary: you sit or stand uninterrupted for long periods of time and don’t walk often enough.

Genetic factors do contribute to one’s predisposition to Metabolic Syndrome, as can certain pharmaceutical drugs.

However, the general mismatch between your physiology and novel environmental factors are by far the major concern.

There’s solid science supporting the need to adopt (the right!) lifestyle habits in order to reduce your risk of slipping into Metabolic Syndrome.

See for yourself, give it a shot starting with our 2-week diet challenge.

Metabolic Syndrome mainly arises out of poor lifestyle habits which must be countered by replacing them with better ones

#1 Poor sleep from misaligning our biological clock with the environment’s light and dark cues

#2 Low-quality nutrition from eating flour products, (added) sugars and seed oils

#3 Being sedentary from prolonged sitting or standing that’s interrupted not often enough

Genetic factors do contribute to one’s predisposition to Metabolic Syndrome, as can certain pharmaceutical drugs.
