I had a call with a client last night who has Type 2 Diabetes. She told me that she’s frustrated because although her sugars have been getting better (sometimes into the 80s, 90s and 100s) they still go up after meals and she’s still not losing weight.
So I asked her to tell me what she was eating and she told me:
Meal 1: 1-2 eggs
Meal 2: salad or a chicken leg with tomato and cucumber
Snack: Handful of nuts or smoked salmon/cream cheese dip
Meal 3: grilled meat plus a veg like broccoli and then some berries
Besides needing to eat more in general, this eating plan is missing FATS!!!
Fats keep your blood sugar stable, reduce blood sugar and insulin spikes at meals, gives you long lasting energy, and teaches your body to burn fat for fuel instead of just glucose!!
Here’s what I would recommend instead:
Meal 1: 2-3 eggs with extra butter, 1/2 avocado & tomatoes (or other veg)
Meal 2: chicken leg with skin with veggies + olives, nuts, and heavy drizzle of olive oil. Salmon...
Blood sugar symptoms are unfamiliar to most of us, but over 88% of adults are metabolically unhealthy. This means blood sugar issues y’all!!
Fixing blood sugar issues and achieving optimal health is not just about changing macros.
Because what if you can’t digest fats well??
Or what if you’re a stress case which means you’re chronically in sympathetic over drive (hello hormone imbalance) and burning through minerals?
What if you’re consuming foods you don’t digest well or processed foods that lead to inflammation?
What if you use toxic products and have a sluggish liver?
What if you don’t move or work out?
All of these things (and many more) need to be addressed!!
This is why so often I hear that people plateau or that they can’t get the results of someone they’re copying on Instagram.
It’s not about following “the right” template or meal plan.
It’s about tapping into your body and learning what it needs. It’s...
