Well check diet 4-week program


On August 4, the "Well Check Diet 4-Week Program" OT was held at Sookmyung Women's University through ZOOM. This is a collaboration program co-hosted by Daewoong Pharm and SMWU, aiming to better understand the scientific principles and methods of the blood sugar diet and observe the effect of application in students' daily lives. Jeong Seon-hwa, a nutritionist who gave a lecture on this diet said, "The main reason why people fail to lose weight is because they are focused on calories. What matters is not calories, but blood sugar. People believe that high calorie intake increases body fat, but blood sugar is the main cause of gaining weight." For instance, French fries have 54 calories fewer than the same amount of salmon steak, but a much higher blood sugar level. In addition, people these days often experience a blood sugar spike that decreases after blood sugar has risen rapidly. This program focused on blood sugar regulation and activation of metabolic flexibility. In the first week, participants observed their blood sugar level using a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System. During mealtimes, participants ate mainly dietary fiber and protein instead of carbohydrates and sugars, and focused on whether blood sugar spikes occurred. Next week, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) was incorporated as a metabolic flexibility activation method for reducing body fat. Exercising vigorously within a short period of time helps reduce body fat by tricking the brain into thinking the activity is continuing after it has stopped. In the third and fourth weeks, these processes are repeated in order to become a habit. Park So-yeon, Division of Economics '22, said, "I had a lot of worries about dieting, but through it I learned that blood sugar management is important. I've only been paying attention to calories, now, I am maintaining a healthy weight by avoiding carbohydrates and sweets that can increase blood sugar." Through this program, many students learned new knowledge for health and applied it to their daily lives.
