I am a firm believer in the power of carbohydrate restriction for diabetes, pre-diabetes, obesity, weight management, and heart disease. As a former personal trainer, I became a nutritionist in 2015, as I wanted to help people improve their health through good nutrition. My goal is to provide accurate, useful information and support people’s efforts to optimize their blood glucose control and achieve a healthy weight, along with improving overall health and vitality.
Stop blaming yourself for running out of willpower – it’s not a moral failing!
Reduce the amount of stimuli in your environment when you want to focus – turn off the phone, limit alerts from your computer, cover the windows when you sleep.
Make the most important decisions first every day, before you can experience decision fatigue.
If your energy crashes after meals, check your blood sugar levels either using a home glucose meter or a functional medicine doctors.
Pay attention to your energy dips throughout the day – perhaps you ate something or were exposed to something that damaged your mitochondria!
Eat more good fat, particularly healthy saturated fat from grass-fed butter and meat.
Eat a lot less sugar. Sugar reduces your rate or neurogenesis.
Buy organic produce whenever possible, as GMOs are commonly sprayed with toxic pesticides.
Breath – performing a simple breathing exercise before bed will lower your cortisol levels and turn off your fight-or-flight response to help you sleep. Try breathing in for five seconds, holding for five seconds, breathing out for five seconds, and holding the out breath for five seconds.
Do it five times in a row.
Big Gains, Little Time.
