I’m touching base to let you know that I’ll be hosting a free online info session on August 29th from 10:00 – 11:30.
The session will be recorded for folks that register.
I will be talking about why weight loss is about much more than calories in and calories out.
We’ll discuss the importance of insulin and how balancing that important hormone will have an impact on weight loss, cravings, inflammation, energy levels and even the quality of our sleep.
Thomas S Cowan MD states:* ‘’ Basically, people gain weight because of insulin… despite the persistent belief that weight gain is all about calories, without insulin it is impossible to gain weight and become fat, no matter how many calories someone takes in.’’
Dr Jason Fung says:** ‘’ Under normal conditions, high insulin levels encourage sugar and fat storage. Low insulin levels encourage glycogen and fat burning. Sustained levels of excessive insulin will tend to increase fat storage. An imbalance between the feeding and fasting will lead to increased insulin, which causes increased fat and voilà –obesity.’’
Join me for an info session where I discuss exactly how you can balance your insulin levels using delicious whole foods and simple lifestyle changes.
I never intended to become a weight loss specialist. What I’m realizing though is that weight issues open up the conversation.
My real pleasure comes from seeing the significant improvements that people experience as a side effect of nourishing their bodies with whole foods, balancing insulin levels, improving digestion and maximizing elimination. That’s the good stuff. The weight loss is just the icing on the cake.
My real passion is making the good stuff doable and delicious. I’m all about the win-wins
There is a lot of evidence that proves that we aren’t simply victims of our good or bad genes and that we have a lot more power and control over our health.
I also believe that our food is our fuel and one of the great joys of life.
Our food should nourish and delight us and so it should be chosen carefully, honoured and savoured.
