What To Eat For Balanced Blood Sugar

Episode 562 1h 12m


Have you ever wondered what the worst candy or cereal for your blood sugar is, or what the best thing to order at your favorite restaurant might be? Thanks to continuous glucose monitors, this is knowledge we’ll all be able to take advantage of in the near future. With insulin resistance playing a key role in the majority of the chronic diseases of our time, monitoring how our blood sugar responds to different foods is a huge step towards health.

In today's episode, I talk with Dr. Casey Means, Jessie Inchauspé, and Dhru Purohit about the best and the worst foods to eat for glucose management, as well as tips and tricks for combining food for optimal blood sugar balance. Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Cofounder of the metabolic health company Levels, an associate editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a guest lecturer at Stanford University. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tools that can facilitate a deep understanding of our bodies and inform personalized and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices.

Jessie 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.
