A common claim on social media and in several nutrition books is that eating a high-carb diet causes insulin resistance. In this blog post, we review whether this claim is supported by scientific evidence.
In this blog post, we will thoroughly review the personal fat threshold hypothesis, how fat tissue works and what happens inside the body when fat can no longer be safely stored.
Insulin resistance is a common phenomenon, and not just in people with diabetes or prediabetes. In this blog post, we will discuss reasons for measuring insulin resistance, who should get tested, which lab test makes the most sense, and how lab results can be interpreted.
In this blog post, I will respond to your most common questions about blood sugar spikes, and specifically our most recent blog post/video, in which I shared six strategies to lower blood sugar spikes without reducing carb intake.
Blood sugar spikes are increases in blood sugar to 180 mg/dL (10 mmol/L) or higher after a meal that are very common in people with diabetes or prediabetes, but also occur in those without diabetes or prediabetes. In this blog post, I am discussing six evidence-based dietary strategies that lower the blood sugar response after a meal and help avoid blood sugar spikes, all without reducing total carbohydrate intake.
In this blog post, we are discussing whether diets rich in high-glycemic index foods may be a cause or contributing factor to chronic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
Continuous glucose monitors, or CGMs, have become a very popular tool, both for people with diabetes and those who want to optimize their health. In this blog post, we are providing guidance on how best to use a CGM to maximize its health benefit.
In this blog post, we’ll be looking at an issue that – in my opinion – should be taking much more a center stage in the discussion of nutrition and health: micronutrient deficiencies!
