My approach to each and every client is different.. however one thing ALWAYS stays constant. The meals contain foods that create a minimal or steady insulin response. This means a meal that is low in carbohydrates and / or is very slowly digested.
My snack today is pretty much all fat, with an immense amount of nutrients and hardly any carbs. I feel at ease eating this knowing that it will keep me full, my insulin down (fat has no effect on insulin) and keep my energy levels steady and brain power strong. I can’t believe I used to fear fat when I finished University 4 years ago, thinking that weight loss and health was all about calories and low fat foods. I was starving 24/7. 🤔
Now, I still definitely keep calories in mind, but the focus on insulin is SO much more important. Why?!? The lower your insulin is, the easier your body can access its fats stores to burn, the less hungry you are, the more balanced your hormones get and the lower your risk for diabetes and other chronic diseases are. DO NOT fear fat. Fear highly processed, refined carbohydrates that cause insulin spikes. Try this as a simple snack too! Just half an avo, some feta, lemon and sea salt. Mmm 🏻🏻🏻 - 1 hour ago
