395: Low Carb, High Insulin? The Insulin Index Part 2

Insulin is the master fat loss hormone. Optimizing insulin production and release means fat loss, energy, satiety and the absence of cravings. Not optimizing insulin means fat storage, difficulty burning fat, fatigue, mood swings, cravings and more. In episode 394 we introduced the insulin index and explained how insulin can be impacted even when blood sugar is not. Today we're getting tactical & specific - reviewing which foods might have ...Read More

I Can Do Hard Things

Drama Is Emotional Waste

394: What Is The Insulin Index?

Tags:

Today we are talking about the insulin index. We talk a lot about the way carbohydrates drive insulin and how our control over insulin really determines our energy, hunger, cravings and ability to burn fat. However, there are many more factors at play than just carbohydrate when we're talking about insulin. In fact, there are some foods that don't have much of an impact on blood sugar but do drive ...Read More

Choices > Circumstances

Tags:

We had a great conversation in the Primal Potential Masters Club the other night about change. We often seek change when we're unhappy. We usually think we're unhappy because of our circumstances (job, finances, relationship, etc). Really, our happiness or unhappiness comes from our choices, not our circumstances.

392: Missing Out & Dealing With Temptation

I absolutely love this episode. A long-time client of mine had a big mindset breakthrough recently & today I'm sharing it with you. For most of her life, this client has indulged almost every day.
