The #1 Weight Loss Solution

gut health health tips Aug 26, 2020


That's right, the simple weight loss solution may be to balance your blood sugar.

As professional working parents we live life at max capacity.  Placing stress on the body spikes blood sugar which releases adrenaline and cortisol. An excess amount of cortisol can wreak havoc on the body and cause several unwanted symptoms such as weight gain, acne, fatigue, irritability, headaches, etc. Stress also breaks down the gut lining causing a whole list of other issues, you can learn all about that in my program RESTORE YOUR GUT HEALTH

If you go long periods of time without eating it places a lot of stress on an over-stressed body. During this period the blood sugar levels plummet, and you may experience wicked cravings for more food—specifically simple carbs or sweets. If you live at max capacity eating a balanced diet every ~3 hours will help to balance blood sugar levels and may prevent disruption of your body’s functions and help your overall health. 

Here’s a list of foods to help you with the process:

  1. Greens: In my opinion you can never eat too many greens. Go for nutrient-dense, low-carb greens like spinach, kale, and broccoli. These greens are also very rich in protein and calcium, which help your body in multiple areas. Toss in smoothies, salads, or serve as a side dish. 
  2. Low fructose fruits: For blood sugar-specific management, choose fruits that are low fructose, such as cantaloupe, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi, and blackberries. Toss in smoothies, salads, or acai bowls. 
  3. Protein: Protein is essential for slowing down glucose absorption in your body, which helps regulate your blood sugar levels. Foods packed with protein include wild salmon, other types of fish, lean meat, Greek yogurt, and eggs.  Try snack ideas like celery sticks dipped in all-natural peanut butter.  Remember everything in moderation! Too much protein can become sugar in the blood, creating a condition called gluconeogenesis. 
  4. Herbs and Spices:  Add tons of flavor to meals and help hormone’s lower  blood sugar. Some spices, like turmeric, contain anti-inflammatory properties, which help in balancing out your sugar. 
  5. Whole grain foods: Whole grain foods which are rich in protein, like millet and quinoa, provide and store energy without causing spikes in blood sugar levels. 
  6. Beans: Beans are a good source of protein, low carb, and rich in fiber, all important factors in balancing your blood sugar. Hummus, lentils and garbanzo beans are great dietary choices. Remember to soak beams the night before to promote easier digestion. 
  7. Nuts: Almonds and walnuts contain healthy amounts of fiber, protein, and healthy fats, and are a low carb snack idea. 

Try balancing your blood sugar the natural way by changing the way you eat. You’ll be amazed at the difference it has on weight & stress management.  

Eat well, live well, and follow your gut (it's connected to the brain you know!)
