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.
