Understanding Blood Sugar and Health

Recently my clients and I were talking about doing a 30-day "no sugar, no alcohol" regimen to help control our blood sugar levels. I found this amazing TED talk online. You should take 15 minutes to listen--the premise is fascinating.

What Peter Attia is suggesting is that maybe high blood sugar and hormonal imbalances create the propensity for diabetes which then results in obesity, and not the other way around.

I think it can apply to anyone who is insulin-resistant or who has high blood sugar. But it also suggests a different way of looking at healthy eating. We are so focused on weight loss. But if Dr. Attia is right, we should be eating to stabilize our blood sugar levels to help our hormones work as they should.

Then, better health and weight loss will happen as a result. Bon app├ętit!
