LOSE WEIGHT WITH NIGERIAN FOOD



Like I said you can eat whatever you love and you will still lose weight. Whether its “eba” with “egusi” soup or chocolates or pizza? YES. You can eat those kinds of foods and still create calorie deficit! Even more! You will increase your metabolism and the fat-burning hormones in your body.
BUT you need to know what is happening in your body when you eat too much of amala and egusi soup in one sitting. I could have also said pounded yam and stew as most of Nigerian foods are starches that raise blood sugar level too quickly in our body.



As we discussed in my last post after meal glucose arrives in our body via bloodstream. This releases Insulin (a hormone that lowers blood glucose levels) which is stored inside beta-cells. The insulin travels to other part of the body in the bloodstream and helps tissues, such as fat, muscle and liver to store glucose as energy source.
The problem occurs when you eat too much starchy foods at once and you have too much sugar in your system. Insulin hormone is tying to deliver the sugar to your cells that really need energy but sometimes your body just “says” NO, I had enough I don’t need glucose right now. I don’t have room for it.



And what does anyone do when they run out of room? They sore the leftovers in storage unit. And the body’s storage unit is the fat cell.
With other words: Imagine you have a paper cup and there is a small hole in the bottom of it. If you hold that cup under running water unless you turn off the faucet in time, the water will overflow from the top of the cup before the cup has a chance to be emptied.



Our bodies are the same. Once we “turn on the water” or begin eating, our bodies begin to digest the food. If we let the water keep running (over eat at any given meal), there is not enough room in the body to store all of those calories, so the likelihood of them 'over-flowing' and being stored as fat is higher.
The point is that although you need carbs every 4 hours, you don’t want to flood your sytem with glucose by eating too many carbs at one time. But you also don’t want to deprive your system of glucose by eating too few carbs.



So what’s the solution? My Nigerian friends that I’m helping to lose weight all eating Nigerian foods regularly, every 3 hours and do you know what? They lose weight. I explained to them that by eating often (every 3 hour, starting within 1 hour after waking up) they can control their blood sugar level beautifully and by doing that they can lose weight. I told them to get a smaller amount of carbs at all times.
This is like a dream come true to them because they don’t want to stop eating Nigerian food when they are losing weight. I can agree with them. Why would you stop eating something that you’ve been enjoyed your whole life?.....
