If there is anything diabetics can agree on, it’s that it is very hard for diabetics to lose weight. High-protein diets do nothing to correct the underlying diabetic condition, and high-carb diets require more diabetes medication or more insulin, which have the side effect of stimulating weight gain.
Fortunately, there is an extremely low-cost, almost free fat burner diet plan for diabetics that you can find on the supplement shelf. It is the combination of two well-known supplements, L-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid.
L-carnitine is well known as a supplement for the heart. It helps heart tissue operate under low-oxygen conditions. Alpha-lipoic acid is perhaps the best known of all the diabetes supplements. It acts like insulin in helping cells absorb glucose, but it differs from insulin in that it does not help cells store fat.
Putting the supplements together, however, Japanese scientists working with tissue cultures of fat cells noticed three astonishing benefits:
1. The two supplements together helped the fat-burning organelles of the cell, the mitochondria, grow larger by activating the segments of DNA that code the proteins for growth.
2. These larger mitochondria absorbed more oxygen so in turn they could
3. Burn more fat.
No one has run a scientifically controlled clinical trial to confirm that taking a combination of L-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid definitely helps diabetics lose weight—but tens of thousands of diabetics have found that it helps them. Taking a combination of L-carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid, and biotin (the B vitamin that is an important co-factor for alpha-lipoic acid) will definitely help lower blood sugars and is like to help you burn more fat. Just be sure to take 1 mg of biotin for every 100 mg of alpha-lipoic acid, since the two supplements usually are not sold together.Feb 10th by admin
