Blood sugar is one aspect of our biology that has major implications for how well we feel and function on a daily basis. When it is out of balance and our insulin spikes, it can set us up for health problems down the road. Luckily, there are many simple, realistic hacks that can help to successfully manage blood sugar without leaving you feeling deprived.
In today’s episode, I talk with Jessie Inchauspé, Max Lugavere, and Dr. Casey Means about the best hacks to reduce insulin spikes and why managing your blood sugar is necessary if you want to be healthy.
Jessie Inchauspé holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from King’s College London and a master’s degree in biochemistry from Georgetown University. Her work at a genetic analysis start-up in Silicon Valley made her realize that, as the key to good health, food habits beat genetics. In her first book, Glucose Revolution, Jessie shares her startling discovery about the essential role of blood sugar in every aspect of our lives, from cravings to fertility, and the surprising hacks to optimize it while still eating the foods we love.
