25 Dec Diabetics Need 30% More Insulin If They Drink Coffee
OK, you guys are not going to like me for this one but coffee is definitely on the list of things to eliminate. Studies have shown that caffeine makes you 30% less insulin sensitive. This means you will need to produce or inject 30% more insulin for every carb you take in. Insulin’s job is to force the sugars into your cells whether they need it or not. Again, the more insulin the more weight gain. It’s that simple. I definitely noticed the difference in my insulin needs when I cut out coffee.
Another interesting point about coffee is that it has no calories. So there is nothing for your body to breakdown and gain energy. So why is it that you feel a jolt of energy from coffee??? Well, that is because your body sees caffeine as a toxin and so your body will pull from it’s own energy reserves to work hard at removing that toxin. Also why you go running to the toilet after a cup. Toxins in toxins out. Same experience with cigarettes or cocaine. An interesting change I noticed once I stopped drinking coffee is I stopped sweating so much, which make sense since sweating is another way your body removes toxins.
Lastly, with coffee you have the added effect of it being acidic, which means your body has to pull alkaline minerals from your bones and tissues to balance out the acid. So essentially you are starting your day off with a cup of acidic toxins that weaken your bones and tissues, fatigues your adrenal glands and makes your gain weight by being more insulin resistant. Not a good start. Please consider switching to herbal teas. Once you get used to tea, you will find coffee to be too acidic to enjoy. Again, it’s just a matter of retraining your taste buds, which starts with retraining your mind. We cover that concept a lot in the transition section.
