Body Balance “Feel Good” breads are the end result of my 3-year project to formulate breads that taste good and promote healthy balance.
Ø Balanced nutrition
Ø Balanced blood sugar
Ø Balanced weight
The breads are a proprietary blend of high-quality proteins in specific proportions that result in a combination of low carbohydrates and a medium amount of healthy fats—a formula proven from live-cell studies to promote health and healing.
The breads are jam-packed with high-protein ingredients from several natural sources. Flax meal and flax oil, along with ground nuts and seeds, provide healthy fiber and oils.
The breads are so alive that unless kept frozen or refrigerated, they will begin to spoil in two to three days. My mentor, the late Dr. Keith S. Lowell, Houston, Texas, instructed me to: “Never eat anything that doesn’t spoil. Just eat it before it spoils.” If a food doesn’t spoil, it’s a “dead” food. Unless it has life, it can’t support life.
Our Basic Bread ingredients list is whole eggs, cottage cheese, cream cheese, non GMO soy protein isolates, BGH free whey protein isolate, egg protein isolate, walnuts, flaxseed meal, buttermilk, sour cream, flaxseed oil, baking soda and sea salt.
Balanced Blood Sugar
Body Balance bread was initially formulated for those who had to reduce carbohydrates to maintain blood-sugar balance, so critical to good health. However, the health benefits of Body Balance breads are important for all of us.
With less than 2 grams of carbohydrate per slice, the breads are ideal for those sensitive to carbohydrates—diabetics, hypoglycemics and many more with dysglycemia (variations of blood sugar instability), the majority of whom are not even aware they have the problem.
With 8 grams of high-quality protein per slice (25% more than one egg), Body Balance bread provides important building blocks for body cells, immunity, tissue maintenance and repair, and energy.
The 5 grams of healthy fats provide oils essential for healthy skin, body and cell membranes, and energy. In addition, fats act like fiber by softening stools for easy passage through the digestive tract.
Excess carbohydrates and fats can cause weight gain. Body Balance breads are high in protein, extremely low in carbohydrates and contain a moderate amount of healthy fats. The breads help support healthy weight by:
Ø their ingredient proportions
Ø their ability to balance blood sugar
Ø their satiety effects (the ability to control cravings and appetite)
Responses to the bread have been positive. People say the bread …
Ø “tastes better than any low-cab bread I’ve tried”
Ø “gave me energy: made me feel better”
Ø “pulled me out of a weak spell”
Ø “increased my ability to focus and concentrate”
Ø “calmed me down when I was feeling hyper and restless.”
Ø “stopped my cravings for junk-food snacks”
Ø “helped improve my endurance and athletic performance”
Ø “helped cut my smoking from 1 pack to 4 cigarettes a day"
Ø “I can go all morning on just a couple slices of Georgia Toast."
What The Breads Do Not Contain
Ø grain flours
Ø artificial sweeteners
Ø artificial colors
Ø added preservatives
Ø nothing not stated on the label
The grain flours are high in carbohydrates and gluten.
Gluten has been documented to cause damage to intestinal lining, to disrupt nutrient absorption and to create inflammation in some individuals. It has been reported that 1 in 250 people has severe reactions to gluten.
Individuals who are plagued with yeast overgrowth or infection should avoid yeast. An overgrowth of yeast can compromise the immune system.
Sugars feed yeast, disturb blood sugar and hormones, contribute to weight gain and have no nutritive value.
Artificial sweeteners, artificial colors and preservatives are artificial, controversial, have no nutritive value and may be toxic.
I have found that sugar-sweetened sodas create unhealthy rises in blood sugar, and that sodas with artificial sweeteners can have the opposite effect: they can cause unhealthy drops in blood sugar.
Why Body Balance breads can make you “Feel Good”
By supporting blood sugar balance, the breads, along with Body Balance protein powder drinks, help provide a steady supply of fuel to every cell in the body. Cells must be properly fueled every second of the day to produce the energy to help you …
Ø think clearly
Ø feel good
Ø behave rationally
Ø maintain immunity against viruses, bacteria and disease
Ø prevent degeneration
Ø slow the aging process
My mentor warned, “If you don’t control your chemistry, your chemistry will control you.”
Unstable blood sugar can cause many symptoms often misdiagnosed as mental or emotional conditions. It can also be the underlying cause of many physical complaints.
