Happy Transformation Tuesday, y’all!

Has anyone ever told you to eat multiple small meals throughout the day to help you maintain your energy and lose weight? In today’s 40th episode, you’ll learn why this is bad advice for most people and how you can elevate and optimize your metabolic health by eating in harmony with your hunger hormones.

Enter ghrelin, leptin and insulin: these three work in concert to tell you when to eat, when to stop and regulate blood sugar levels, respectively. When you’re grazing all day, you’re recruiting them frequently, constantly ringing the bell like a kid playing ring and run and annoying his neighbors. And when you eat ultra processed faux foods — metabolic wrecking balls, you’re interfering with hormone signaling. This is why focusing on real, whole foods and eating two to three satiating meals per day prioritizing protein rich foods and naturally nourishing fats is the way to go.

In addition to the nourishment we give our bodies, there are other ways to harmonize with your overall hormone system and promote insulin sensitivity or the opposite of insulin resistance, which is the root cause of chronic lifestyle conditions. My image below details the levers you can pull to increase your body’s insulin sensitivity.

In closing, I offer a pro tip: on your next primary care visit, ask your doctor for an easy, fundamental lab test almost no medical providers order. It is like having a crystal ball for your metabolic future — information you must know which can help you recognize insulin resistance well before your glucose lab work comes back out of range.
