Harvard Study Supports GR2 Control Programme

Maintaining a healthy weight is important to all of us. In addition to the emotional factors involved , excessive weight has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol levels, and many other health problems.

However, with so many theories of weight loss available, it is understandable that people can become overwhelmed or even discouraged in the attempt to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

The Journal of the American Medical Association recently published findings from a study conducted an Harvard University which supports the premise that a diet containing foods with lower glycaemic response levels is more effective in maintaining weight loss than a diet based primarily on low fat foods(1).

The Harvard study compared subjects on a low-glycaemic load diet with those on a low-fat diet. The low-glycaemic load diet reduces carbohydrates that digest rapidly and raise blood sugar and insulin to high levels – such as white bread, refined breakfast cereals, and concentrated sugars. Instead it emphasised that carbohydrates that release sugar slowly, including whole grains, most fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes.

“On a typical low-fat diet, the participants tended to experience more perceived hunger and a slower metabolic rate, which may make it more difficult to stay on the diet, while those on the low-glycaemic load diet did not feel as hungry and had a faster metabolic rate,” states Dr. David Ludwig, the study’s senior investigator. Dr. Ludwig continues, “Our data suggests that the type of calories consumed – independent of the amount – can alter metabolic rate.”

The study also suggests that in addition to improved cardiovascular risk factors, the subjects on the low-glycaemic load diet were better able to stay with the programme and, therefore, maintain their lower weight.

GNLD Leads the Way

While these results may be interesting, to GNLD, they are not new. On the frontier of nutritional science, GNLD’s Scientific Advisory Board and Global Science Network began developing a weight loss programme based on these principles back in 1999!

The GR2 Control Programme, as the name implies, revolves around controlling glycaemic response. The number “2” represents the exponential benefits for long-term health through a low glycaemic response diet. In addition to weight loss, these benefits include lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases.

In order to assist people in distinguishing between high- and low-glycaemic response foods, the programme contains specific lists of good to Enjoy and Avoid, and includes suggestions for shacks and main meals. The complete GR2 Control products work together to :

  • Re-balance nutrient intake
  • Re-programme the body’s biochemical signal network
  • Re-energise the body

The GR2 Control Programme utilizes the body’s natural glycaemic response to lower insulin secretion demands, keeping you off the Glycaemic Roller Coaster and out of the Insulin Trap. It provides sustained feelings of satisfaction between meals, maintains balanced and controlled energy levels, and keeps “fat-storage doors” closed and “fat-burning doors” open.

GR2 Control is truly on the cutting edge of weight loss and disease prevention science!
