November is national diabetes awareness month and while the awareness month is coming to an end, awareness should be spread all year long. Originally I was going to do one long blog post addressing the different types of diabetes and what to do about them, however after giving it some thought that is too much information to condense into one post. I will do three parts to my Diabetes Awareness series. There are two main types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2 then throw in prediabetes and you have a mess. Part one will focus on Type 1, while parts two and three will focus on A1C, Prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes. Continue reading “Diabetes Awareness Part 1; Type 1 diabetes”

Experience the Glucose Balance
We know having a balance between our glucose and insulin is vitally important for our health. It’s why we chose to eat LCHF/Ketogenic way of eating.
Tonight I had the pleasure of presenting on glucose and diet at our monthly NeoLife Experience meeting. I think diet and supplementing with targeted food supplements to assist our cells to become more insulin sensitive so we can use less insulin is super important.

That is the age old question….or is it?
When I was a child we didn’t snack…yes I am dating myself here…..we ate at meal times and outside of meals was pretty much not heard of. We didn’t have snack time at school, during after school activities, etc. It would ruin your appetite for meals and it wasn’t something that was called for in the budget. It just wasn’t done. I grew just fine without constantly eating throughout the day. Actually it wasn’t up until about 15 years ago or so that this whole concept of eating 4-6 or more times a day was healthy. Many of us bought into this theory. I mean it made sense, eating 4-6 small meals a day would keep your metabolism up and keep your blood sugar level through the day. Ahhh, it sounds so perfect, doesn’t it? Continue reading “To Snack……”

Low Carb way of eating is a great way to encourage hormone balance, Continue reading “What can Low Carb, Healthy digestion and concentrated food nutrients do for you?”
