Just think... If you ate 35 grams of fiber a day it could lower your A1C levels by 2.3 points and help you live longer.
Erasing Diabetes advocates for a high fiber diet. Here's a fiber study that proves it works!
Researchers from New Zealand looked at the combined results of 2 studies. More than 10,000 people with some kind of diabetes were asked to include more fiber in their diet.
The people not only lowered their A1C 2.3 points -- that's like dropping your A1c from 8.0 to 5.7 -- but they...
One out of 10 people who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes really don't have type 2 diabetes. They have a different kind of diabetes known as Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA.)
That's an adult form of type 1 diabetes.
If you've had trouble bringing your glucose numbers into range using oral diabetes medication, you might have LADA.
Watch this video to learn about my client who was misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes and to see if you fit the LADA profile.
Evan Purcell's A1c was 12.1, and he weighed 365 pounds when I saw him in September 2018. He told me that he was 429 pounds at his heaviest weight just a few months earlier. He had type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
His doctor was very concerned, and THAT concerned him. At 44 years old, his life was a mess.
Today, Evan's A1C is 5.1, he weighs less than 200 pounds, and he feels great! He doesn't have diabetes anymore!
I'm sure you've heard that type 2...
If your mints are sweetened with xylitol, they may help keep you safe from Covid-19.
Xylitol is an antimicrobial, and in the same way that xylitol prevents rhinosinusitis -- the inflammation of the spaces around the nasal pathways -- xylitol may prevent Covid-19. In addition, xylitol has been shown to reduce vial infections caused by hRSV.
Xylitol is a sugar substitute that has been shown to decrease your risk of respiratory infections. It has a similar sweetness to...
Some high protein foods can INCREASE IMMUNITY to viruses and at the same time LOWER BLOOD GLUCOSE. Others do the exact opposite: they lower your immunity and raise blood glucose, putting you at higher risk for covid-19 and making your diabetes worse.
You NEED to know the difference. Watch this to know what kinds of protein to choose and why it really matters.
Diet tips like these are only one part of my online coaching program, Erasing Diabetes Daily, which is paid for by most insurance...
To reduce your risk of getting the corona virus or any virus, it's smart to eat foods that can help your body battle viruses. Here are 2 diet tips that can boost your body's virus-killing ability and help you stay well.
In this video, I talk about green tea. If you're sensitive to caffeine, by all means, drink decaf green tea. It works the same, and that's what I do.
Green tea has 30-50 mg of caffeine per 8 oz. cup, as compared to regular coffee which has between 90 and 700 mg per 8 oz...
In all the virus mayhem, you may be feeling a bit out of control. Our daily routines have been turned upside down and our plans have been put on hold.
Sure, washing your hands is CRITICAL to help prevent the spread of any virus (or bacteria), but what do you do once you've washed your hands for 20 seconds? Gee wiz, they're dry by now.
So what can YOU do?
Well, what you do everyday matters. I'm talking about the little things. Here's one way that you can get started right...
We all have values.
You know, the things that we do or think that that make us who we are and shape how we live. They (should) determine your priorities. Telling the truth, working hard, not quitting, you know, those sorts of things.
My dear friend Jenn teaches her clients to invest in a health savings account, and I LOVE that idea. It's like a regular savings account; you make deposits and withdrawals. Not with money, but with thoughts and behaviors. And your goal is, just as in a bank-based...
Sleep is a HUGE when it comes to keeping blood glucose low.
If you are sleep deprived (some researchers would say that if you routinely get fewer than 8 hours of sleep, than you are sleep deprived) the beta cells in your pancreas are less sensitive to glucose spikes. If the beta cells don't realize that there's an influx of glucose, they won't make the necessary insulin that would clear the glucose from your bloodstream, so your blood glucose will be high.
Sleep deprivation also affects...
