Today's episode is for anyone has tried changing their body by restricting their calories, eliminating whole macronutrients or other dangerous decisions that loop them into the diet-binge cycle that (I can assure you) will never end.
For example — you know the feeling, when you've just eaten a couple sweet treats or a bag of chips and suddenly you get hit by ravenous hunger and cravings for more. Our blood sugar doesn't always communicate with our hunger signals and even though we may have just eaten a ton, our blood sugar has not gotten the memo.
But not everyone has gone through this journey or understands our bodies reaction to carbs and how to regulate our blood sugar. Luckily for us, Kelly LeVeque from Be Well By Kelly is here to break it all down for you. She's a nutritionist, whose understanding of food and our bodies reaction to it is approachable and demystifying.
She uses plenty of analogies and examples to help her clients (and now you guys!) understand the science behind nutrition so that eventually these decisions can be intuitive for you too!
