On today’s podcast we’ll be talking more specifically about practices, tactics/‘hacks’ to reduce blood glucose spikes and crashes, strategies to keep us insulin sensitive and ultimately improve our metabolic health, so we can prevent things like T2DM, certain cancers, dementia, obesity, CVD. Potentially even improving the management of conditions like PCOS, headaches and vague symptoms like brain fog, fatigue and more.

Specifically I’m talking through popular hacks to maintain a normal glucose

  • Vinegar before meals
  • The order of foods (nutrient sequence manipulation)
  • Fibre before meals
  • Exercise after eating
  • Plus supplements including psyllium, green tea, berberine and salacia oblonga
