The 48 Hour Rule

Many clients have heard me profess about the 48-hour rule. 

And it was also intended around losing weight and dropping fat by getting over carb/sugar cravings.

And it’s true.

But during this time of COVID-19 I realized now more than ever, it’s also the kingpin to remaining healthy.

If this time has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t afford to have Underlying Conditions.

  • High Blood pressure
  • High Blood Sugar
  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Kidney Disease
  • Thyroid disorder
  • And more

While I will ALWAYS encourage the right kind of exercise for metabolism enhancement, joint health and bone density, a consistently good diet is even more important.

Let’s focus on Diet and the 48-hour Rule:

Clients mention to me that they sometimes ‘struggle’ with their diets.

Especially regarding carbs (simple and complex sugars)

  • Sweets
  • Pasta
  • Ice cream
  • Cereal
  • Alcohol
  • Pizza

We all know we should eat better.

Many of us even know how to eat better.

But it can be tough, even with good intentions:

If you are off track – IT’s HARD to get back on track!

Keep in mind, sugar is a drug.

It changes you:

  • Physiologically – Body
  • Psychologically- Mind
  • Addictive – Pain/Pleasure Systems

And like any drug, it has a 1/2 life.

Some drugs have a long 1/2 life (6-12mo)

Others, are short.

Good News

Sugar = 5-days (pretty short)

The 48-hour rule.

So what about 48-hours?

The majority (85%) of the 1/2 life of sugar is exhausted within the first 48-hours.

I mention this because if you are eating poorly or in a bad place, it’s just 2-days from turning around.

Now, I don’t mean that you’ll get to your goal weight, body fat and eliminate Underlying Conditions within 2-days but it does mean that your sugar CRAVING will be diminished within 2-days.

After 2-days:

It will be easier for you to maintain a good diet, without carb cravings and with better control.

All of this will lead to lower Insulin Levels.

And to review, low insulin levels mean:

  • Less body fat
  • Lower fat weight
  • Smaller physical size of your body
  • Less vessel wall damage
  • Healthier organs
  • Better energy
  • Less risk of cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and stroke
  • Improved mental outlook
  • Better and Deeper Sleep
  • Less risk of COVID or other infectious diseases

And that’s the short list! Get through the challenging 48-hours and you’ll be well on your way. 

Keep it going!!
