At Educogym our Nutritionists use cutting edge Low GI nutrition & HI TECH food based supplements:
No starvation diets, just good nutrition
The aim of the Educogym® Nutrition Program is to educate clients in how they can draw out their perfect body from within. The core understanding of the program is that most people are eating an unnatural diet which upsets the balance of the hormones in our bodies. This statement could not be truer than in recent times with the introduction of various fad diets and fast food outlets. Low GI is very easy to understand once you know the basics. GI stands for the glycaemic index which measures the effect of food on your blood sugar levels. Pure white sugar has a score of 100 which means when you consume white sugar your blood sugar levels sky rocket up. Having your blood sugar this high is toxic to the body, so it then has to get it down immediately. The hormone insulin is then secreted which brings the blood sugar levels back down. This then in turn means the GI (glycaemic index) also measures insulin secretion. That is high GI food and drink cause more insulin to be secreted as they cause the blood sugar to rise very high. This is the most important part to understand; it’s the insulin that is the problem. Insulin is responsible for fat accumulation. More insulin equals more fat accumulation. Constant high GI foods drives the insulin up. Hopefully from this you can see the pattern of why someone is likely to accumulate fat if they are always eating high GI foods.
Do I need to take the supplements?
At educogym our Nutritionists recommend hi-tech food based supplements. They can really help with the results as they help to fill in the gaps in a person’s nutrition. They will help you burn more fat and put on more muscle. The supplements are optional but we do highly recommend them.
