S2E40 - Mastering Blood Sugar to Master Weight Loss and Hormones


Show Summary: 


"The pillar of fixing hormones is balancing your blood sugar before you do anything. Even with supplements, if fluctuating blood sugar is not addressed, you will fail because you’re constantly inflamed and not fueling your cells properly.”

Confusing and outdated health advice crowds the industry today. Too much emphasis has been given on limiting carbs, calorie counts and diets. Most certified dietitians also do not understand metabolism, or how fast our bodies burn fat or manufacture sugar into energy that we could actually use.

Stabilizing blood sugar is THE topic that we all ought to talk about. Aside from the dreaded diabetes, did you know the high correlation of unchecked glucose with cardiovascular disease, cancer and other maladies? Also, not to mention that insulin resistance is a huge factor behind stubborn belly fat, excessive food cravings, brain fog, low energy and inflammation, just to name a few.
