And Related Insulin-Smart Omelettes and Other Insulin-Smart Breakfasts for Insulin-Smart eating

There is never a valid reason for missing breakfast. So strong is my conviction on the subjects of the need and the optimal type of breakfast that I seldom complete a visit with one of my patients without addressing it. Indeed, next to the subject of chronic anger I devote more time energy—and energy— to the matter of “Dr. Ali’s breakfast” than any other subject. In this chapter, I present information about what I consider to be a good breakfast and offer my reasons for my position on the subject.

Many patients tell me they missed their breakfast because they were not hungry. I explain that was so because their metabolic rhythm has been disrupted. Rising at 7 am following a dinner at 8 pm the evening before, of course, means a fasting of 11 hours. Fasting means hypoglycemia and acidosis. Extending that period for another two or three or more hours essentially sets a person up for major hypoglycemic-hyperglycemic shifts that trigger insulin and adrenergic roller coasters. In individuals with neurotransmitter volatility — persons with predisposition for anxiety, sadness, or depression — extension of fasting can trigger any or all of those symptoms. For others without such vulnerability, it is really a matter of time until they also succumb to undue tiredness or mood difficulties caused by glucose-insulin-adrenaline-neurotransmitter shifts.

During the mid-1960s, as a house surgeon in Pakistan and later in England, I seldom ate a breakfast. I am not sure why that was so. Perhaps it was a macho thing — the real surgeons had to begin their mornings with something better than merely engaging Pakistani Praathas (heavily oiled and salted fried pita bread) or English porridge. More often than not, lunch was missed as well. By noon, I was nearly always in the midst of struggle with excising tissues soaked with bloody fluids. Sometimes there was a quick cup of coffee during the midday hours. At other times, I devoured a doughnut or a piece of pastry in the early afternoon hours. Now when I recall those days, I shudder to think who might have paid what price for the lack of any sense of nutrition — appalling ignorance, to be precise — of a driven, hypoglycemic, and inexperienced surgeon.

Dr. Ali’s Start-Low-Build-Slow Principle
In all guidelines for natural remedies for preserving health and reversing chronic diseases, I strongly advise readers to follow my Start-Low-Build-Slow Principle. Simply stated, this principle requires that an individual, in trying natural remedies, be cautious and closely observe how the body responds to natural remedies, beginning with small amounts or portions (as low as one-tenth the value on the first day, and doubling them every day until the recommended amount is reached.) If any negative senses are experienced, the item should be discontinued or taken in smaller amounts for longer periods of time to increase tolerance. It is important that a doctor be consulted to rule out the presence of serious coexisting or underlying conditions.

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF A GOOD BREAKFAST

A wholesome breakfast — in my view — should serve the following goals:

1. It should set the stage for an active, vigorous, and healthful day with sustained energy.
2. It should support the functions of the bowel, liver, hormone organs, brain, and other tissue.
3. It should sustain the long-term goals of healthful aging and preventing degeneratory disorders, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, and others.

With those goals in mind, the following objectives of a breakfast seem desirable to me:

1. Overhydration of cells throughout the body during the morning hours;
2. Maintenance of the blood glucose levels within a narrow healthful zone to avoid rapid hypoglycemic- hyperglycemic shifts, and to prevent insulin-adrenergic roller coasters initiated by those shifts;
3. Tonification of the bowel musculature and stimulation of the emptying reflexes;
4. Provision of special support for the hepatic redox-restorative detoxification pathways;
5. Provision of restorative oils for optimal biomembrane functions, especially in the brain;
6. Provision of raw material for structural and functional proteins, especially for generating oxystatic enzymes; and
7. Avoidance of toxic trans fatty acids, which are common in the standard American breakfasts.

Below, I describe my own breakfast, which seeks to meet the above goals and objectives of an optimal breakfast.

My Own Breakfast 3-4 Days a Week

I consider missing my breakfast a violation of the sacred temple that houses my spirit — an insult to my physical frame. I learned that crucial lesson the hard way. Earlier I referred to the absence of breakfast during my surgical days. That mistake was continued during two decades of my pathology work as well. My clinical experience and review of literature has convinced me that the single best:

1. That the premium nutrient for the brain is flaxseed oil;
2. That the single best nutrient for the liver is lecithin;
3. That the most desirable prescription for the integrity of bowel ecology is organic vegetable juice;
4. That the ideal formulation for the prevention of sugar-insulin-adrenaline roller coasters is a good protein powder, comprising 85 to 90% partially digested proteins; and
5. That the nutrient of choice for invigorating all the cells in the body is abundant water.

In view of those considerations, I prepare my own breakfast (within two to three minutes) on five or six days a week as follows:

1. I begin with a 28-ounce mug filled with spring water and one ounce of seltzer water (seltzer water is unnecessary for those who prefer plain water).
2. I drink the above-mentioned fluid volume in portions of five to seven ounces at intervals, doing limbic exercise — non-competitive exercise—between drinking. I take my probiotic protocol (Bifidobacterium andAcidophilus) when I begin to drink water.
3. I continue drinking that amount of water, taking additional supplements, until the mug is empty.
4. Next, I prepare a 30-ounce protein drink as shown in Table 1.
5. I begin drinking the above protein protocol, again consume five to seven ounces at a time, continuing my limbic exercise and taking additional supplements until both the complement of supplements and the protein formula is finished.
6. On weekends, my wife and I commonly take an egg breakfast with some fruit.

At the Institute, my colleagues and I use the following four P&P (partially digested protein) protocols: (1) #1 containing %90% mixture of proteins derived from eggs and milk; (2) # 2 containing 90% soy proteins; (3) # 3 containing 75 to 80 % rice protein; and (4) # 4 containing about 90% of whey protein. Proteins derived from other sources, such as vegetables, may be substituted for one or the other of the above choices. In Table 2, I make some recommendations for the choice of vegetables for preparing fresh juices:

The flaxseed oil in the protein drink may be replaced by one of the following oils: olive, safflower, sunflower, sesame, pumpkin, avocado, and almond. Additional comments on this subject are included in the next section.

I use the Very Veggie brand of bottled organic vegetable juice produced by Knudson Co. For those who can find the time, freshly squeezed vegetable juice is clearly preferable.

Table 1. Dr. Ali’s Breakfast
Five Days of the Weeks

Protein                                    Two heaping tablespoons

Flaxseed                                  Two heaping tablespoons

Lecithin (all natural)                   One heaping tablespoon

Vegetable juice, organic             15 ounces

Water                                     15 ounces

Insulin-Smart Omelettes and Other Insulin-Smart Breakfasts for Insulin-Smart eating

When we do what is right, habit makes it agreeable. That certainly is true of eating choices. Taste is an acquired faculty. Organic vegetable juice added to my protein drink now appeals to me much more than any fruit juice. It was not so when I began. (Fried brain is not a delicacy for me now as it once was in my childhood in Pakistan.) The habit one grows into for one’s breakfast is as much a part of the life’s track as any other. I explain those basic aspects of a wholesome breakfast to every patient who consults me.

Some patients readily follow my breakfast plan closely, begin to savor it soon, and report good results within weeks. Others take a slower approach, adopting my plan partially. Some patients initially find my prescription for breakfast unappetizing. The majority of them settle into them nicely weeks or months later. Yet others ask if they can replace organic vegetable juice with milk (cow’s, goats, rice or soy). Others wish to add one-half of a banana or peach or other types of fruit for enhanced taste. Except in patients with disturbing symptomatology related to rapid hypoglycemic-hyperglycemic shifts, I accept their modifications.

I do wholeheartedly endorse an egg breakfast. Eggs have been maligned for decades by practitioners of pharmacologic medicine on the grounds that eggs raise blood cholesterol levels. I dismiss that as non-sense coming from ill-informed individuals. Not a single study has shown that eggs increase the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Indeed, some reports suggest that eggs — an excellent source of high-quality liver-friendly lecithin —actually lower blood cholesterol levels.

Plain yogurt with freshly ground flaxseed makes for an excellent breakfast. Some fruit may be added to that for persons without immune disorders. Other good breakfast options are soy products commonly recommended by macrobiotic enthusiasts.

Oatmeal breakfast used to be a favorite of nutritionists of bygone eras. Nearly all nutritionists that I have discussed this subject with in recent years told me they now do not recommend oatmeal or any other starch breakfasts anymore. I believe that is because the abuse of antibiotics and massivesugar overload in the general public has so stressed the bowel ecosystem that even so-called healthy starches now carry the hazard of further feeding the sugar- eaters in the gut and so contribute to ongoing disruption of the bowel ecology.

In some cultures, fish, poultry, and various meats are consumed for breakfast. Those items are very desirable as sources of proteins. The important point here is that such meats should not be highly processed, nitrated, or otherwise contain high contents of oxidized fats.

The Insulin Diet

Two Insulin Diet Plans

Majid Ali, M.D.

Insulin is the hunger hormone. This scientific simplicity forms the core of my Insulin Diet. I  prescribe it for my patients in one of its two forms:
1.             Insulin Diet One, a plan for reversing insulin excess (hyperinsulinism); and
2.             Insulin Diet Two, a plan for reversing diabetes.

Insulin Is the Hunger Hormone

The core principle of my two Insulin Diets  – insulin being the hunger hormone – is applicable to unwanted weight gain, obesity, prediabetes, gestational diabetes, metabolic syndromes of various types and degrees, diabetes-related to steroid use and hormonal disorders of other types.  The application of this principle to these disorders, however, does require some changes.

Majid Ali, M.D.

 

Yes, almond butter is an insulin-smart food.


Almond butter does not cause a blood sugar spike. So it does not cause blood insulin spike.

 

Almond butter is a good food also because it is rich in minerals. And, of course, it taste good.

SEVEN QUESTIONS FOR INSULIN-BASED DIABETES REVERSAL

 

Dr. Ali’s Video Series

For Answers With Honest “Insulin Conversations”


Seven Questions That Matter

  1. What is diabetes? (It is excess insulin and insulin toxicity.)
  2. What is your chance of getting diabetes? (One in two now, seven in ten in 20 years.)
  3. Can you lose diabetes? (Only you can answer the question by learning what insulin and how insulin toxicity develops).
  4. How can you reverse diabetes? (With insulin-wise diet and insulin detox.)
  5. How can I know if I am hurting my heart, brain, liver, kidneys, ovaries, and testis? (If you have excess insulin and are insulin-toxic, you are hurting all these organs.)
  6. How Can I Begin Losing Weight and/or reversing diabetes? (Be honest with yourself and learn with intelligent insulin conversations.)

Honest Answers to the Seven Questions 

A mirror does not accept lies. One cannot lie to one’s own self. This how I suggest you begin honest and intelligent insulin conversations. I invite you to put my statement to a challenge with my library of Insulin-Diabetes Video Library. View the videos once, twice, thrice, or more often, and then be honest with yourself. Next read the seven quesions and try to answer them. Then look at the videos and see if my very short answers to the questions really make sense to you.

Insulin Toxicity of the Unborn

Majid Ali, M.D.

The incidence of pregnancy-associated insulin resistance is rising worldwide, I think it is appropriately designated as insulin toxicity of the unborn.


The incidence of pregnancy-associated insulin resistance is rising worldwide, and is commonly associated with many physiological bioenergetic, biochemical, metabolic, physiological, hematological and immunological alterations.  Many of the factors involved with these alterations render cell membranes resistant to the action of insulin.  At the end of healthy pregnancy, these changes are  reversible after delivery [1]. Healthy women pregnancy can be associated with resistance to the action of insulin on glucose uptake and utilization.

The Crank-Crank-Shaft Model

of Insulin Resistance Insulin Toxicity

Insulin resistance as the resistance of cells, most notably of the muscles, liver, and fatty tissue to the action of insulin. In 2000, I offered the analogy of a crank and crank-shaft to explain how insulin resistance develops. 

I proposed The Crank-Crank-Shaft Model of Insulin Toxicity to offer a simple and visual model to explain insulin resistance, excess insulin activity (hyperinsulinemia), and insulin toxicity. In simple words, the “crank of insulin” fails to turn the “crank-shaft of insulin receptor” protein embedded in the cell membrane. This happens when the cell membrane is covered with grease—the crank-shaft is rusted, turned, and twisted, so to speak—so rendering insulin ineffective. I point out that the insulin receptor crankshaft is roughly 70 times larger than the insulin crank.

To illustrate injury to the cell membrane, I proposed The Grease and Detergent Model in which the cell innards, the cell membrane, and the cement that holds the cells together (the matrix) accumulate “cellular grease” due to insufficient detergents in the body. Cellular grease is composed of cellular waste, molecular debris, rancid fats, sticky sugars, and pulped proteins. The primary detergent in the body is oxygen, with secondary “oxy-detergents,” such as hydrogen peroxide, nitric oxide, hydroxyl radicals, oxygen-activated enzymes, and grease-eating phagocytes

In cellular grease, in scientific terms, rancid fats are oxidized and peroxidized lipids, sticky sugars are glycosylated proteins and lipids, and pulped proteins are cross-linked peptides (chains of amino acids that make up proteins). This is a vast subject which I address in several articles in my Insulin Toxicity Series. Here I point out that cellular grease buildup is caused by toxic foods, toxic environment, and toxic thoughts.

In The Crank-Crank-Shaft Model of Insulin Toxicity, the blood sugar level rises when insulin fails to drive sugar into the cells to be metabolized (“burned”) to produce energy. The pancreas senses the rising blood sugar levels and responds with overproduction of insulin hormone in order to overcome the resistance of cellular grease. This works for sometime. However, excess insulin is fattening, inflaming, and grease-building. So begins the vicious cycle of:

*  More grease,

*  More insulin resistance,

*  Higher blood sugar,

*  More insulin production,

*  Yet more grease,

*  Yet higher blood glucose level,

*  Yet more insulin production, and

*  Yet more grease.

Pregnant women require an additional energy of 300 kcal/day over routine energy intake [2] while the average glucose utilized by a growing fetus at the 3rd trimester reaches approximately to 33 μmol/kg/min [4]. Maternal IR leads to more use of fats than carbohydrates for energy by mother and spares carbohydrates for fetus. Thus, the development of IR serves as a physiological adaptation of the mother to ensure adequate carbohydrate supply for the rapidly growing fetus [4].

As the pregnancy advances to third trimester, insulin sensitivity may gradually decline to 50% of the normal expected value [5]. This decline is reported to be mediated by a number of factors such as increase in the levels of estrogen, progesterone, human placental lactogen (hPL), among other factors [6].

Normally, insulin binding to insulin receptor causes phosphorylation of β-subunit of receptor and it further leads to phosphorylation of Insulin Receptor Substrate-I (IRS-I) at tyrosine residue which act as docking site for further signal transduction molecules [7].

Progesterone suppresses the phosphoinositol 3-kinase-mediated pathway by reducing the expression of IRS-1. Gradually increasing progesterone concentration with advancement of normal pregnancy is associated with increased inhibition insulin-induced GLUT4 translocation and glucose uptake [8]. Estrogen concentration is also high in pregnancy. 17β-estradiol diminishes insulin sensitivity at high concentrations [9].

hPL has both insulin-like and anti-insulin effects. In vitro, it has been shown to increase lipolysis and free fatty acids (FFAs) in adipocytes. Increased hPL level in pregnancy is found to increase glucose uptake, oxidation, and incorporation of glucose into glycogen, which may favor glycogen storage in the mother [10].

Human placental growth hormone (hPGH), a product of the human growth hormone variant gene, is not regulated by growth hormone- releasing hormone (GH-RH) and is secreted tonically rather than in a pulsatile fashion. hPGH has the same affinity for the growth hormone receptor as pituitary GH. The hPGH may also have the same diabetogenic effects as pituitary growth hormone such as hyperinsulinemia, decreased insulin-stimulated glucose uptake and glycogen synthesis, and impairment of the ability of insulin to suppress hepatic gluconeogenesis [10].

Other factors such as increased levels of serum cortisol, Tumor necrosis factor α ( TNF α, ILs etc., can interrupt the insulin signaling pathway and can lead to IR during normal pregnancy [11].

Available literature [1214] suggests that there is a rise in IR in 3rd trimester of pregnancy. However literature is less on the 1st and 2nd trimester. So the present study was undertaken to evaluate the status of IR in different phases of normal pregnancy.
