Guess how much sugar your blood throughout your entire body (around 5 liters) should have! 1 teaspoon! That’s it...1! When you think about the Standard American Diet and how carb heavy it is are you the least bit surprised that we have an epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes?
Anytime you have sugar (from healthy and not so healthy foods) your pancreas works to control your blood sugar by producing a hormone called insulin. Insulin removes sugar from your blood. Sounds great right!? Well it also is a fat storing hormone. When you consume lots of sugar over time your pancreas becomes overworked and your body/cells turn off the receptors so the insulin is no longer doing it’s job. You become insulin resistant. No bueno! Your blood sugar stays high and you will eventually develop type 2 diabetes.
Guess what? You can reverse insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes by changing your diet! Seriously it’s that simple. I help clients do this everyday. I love informing my clients about foods and ingredients to avoid so they can feel their best. Do you have any of these symptoms? High cholesterol, high blood pressure, weight gain around the abdomen, tiredness, hunger, difficulty concentrating? Let’s talk!
