Research shows 1 in 3 Americans are pre-diabetic.

This matches what I see in my practice.

In the last decade I’ve seen blood sugar imbalances be the gateway to chronic illnesses. 

For many it’s stress or stress around food keeping cortisol and subsequently blood sugar high. 

I know there are some things around food and weight that stress me out.

Quick question…

How many of you are secretly terrified of weighing yourself?

You make sure you go to the bathroom (1& 2) and weigh with no clothes on first thing in the morning!

Perhaps you gently place one toe on the scale then let the entire foot rest before bringing the next one up.

If this is you – you’re not alone!

I know this well. 

This repeated trauma raises cortisol and is just one of the rituals keeping weight and blood sugar up. 

Then there’s the multiple food personalities…

On my podcast this week I interviewed Eric Edmeads the co-author of Postdiabetic and the creator of the weight loss program Wildfit.

Eric had me cracking up with his food personalities…

The drug dealer voice “hey man just one bite won’t kill you”.

And the angel “but we’ve been so good – a moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips”.

Or the teenager “aw come on it’s just one doughnut”.

He got me thinking about mine…

We’ll call her Midge – “You’ve lost a few pounds you can eat an extra cookie”.

“You haven’t eaten much all day it’s ok”.

The angel “honey, you know what one bite leads to…”

My worst personality is the bread lady “it’s hot and fresh, the butter will melt so nice…”

And the cheese lady “you haven’t had this in so long – you deserve it!”

The cheese and bread ladies messed with my cholesterol – I’m working on them!

Can you relate?

Back to Eric Edmeads, my podcast guest…

In his 30’s Eric was suffering from chronic sinus congestion, he was over weight, tired and did’t feel well. 

His docs decided taking out his tonsils was the solution. 

30 days before the surgery Eric decided to change his diet.

He ate foods closest to nature and increased his protein. 

In 30 days he didn’t need the surgery anymore. 

His friends were amazed at how much he had changed his entire appearance by 90 days.

When Eric’s friends asked for advice Eric was eager to help them out.

He quickly realized it wasn’t as easy for others to take on a new lifestyle.

Eric went on a mission to learn food psychology as well secrets from sub-saharan Africa that would become his 90 day program Wildfit. 

Live Longer. Live Better. Live Free.
90 days from now you could be in total control of your food choices and your life.

His book Postdiabetic is a 9 week DIY program to end your battle with elevated blood sugars.

Postdiabetic is a must read for anyone that has multiple personalities when it comes to food. 

There’s no one on this planet that isn’t aware of what to do to put blood sugar in check. 

The secret lies in the psyche.

I refuse to avoid wheat and dairy for the rest of my life, or any other food for that matter.

And I’m pretty sure many of you can relate. 

Banning yourself from foods creates food monsters.

My story with cholesterol is proof (my emails are archived as blogs on my website – “I was shocked when I saw my labs” tells all.)

This is why I’m a huge fan of getting ahead of issues or tackling the ones going on with habits, routines and behaviors that work for you.

Anyone who has labs run by me has their fasting glucose, hemoglobin a1c and insulin levels checked.

If your doc isn’t looking at all these three it’s time to ask.

Or pay cash to have them run yourself – you can now do this at any Labcorp.

If you’re not sure where your blood sugar is at – get it checked.

And if you’re well aware, can’t seem to get things in balance and those food personalities have strong voices…

…check out Eric Edmead’s free resource “The 6 Human Hungers” to learn more about how addressing your food psyche can help.

Your relationship with food and the stress it causes matters.
