Part Three - My best nutrition tips

weekly memo

Welcome back to week three of our four-part series of my best nutrition tips.


If you’ve missed week 1 (balancing blood sugar) or week 2 (are carbs bad?) you’ll want to make sure you catch up.


My number one tip is to balance your blood sugar.  It profoundly impacts your overall health and is key to avoiding chronic diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease.


This week’s tip is about protein.


I often see that most women undereat protein.  It’s so important because protein helps maintain lean muscle mass.  You’ve likely heard me say that muscle is the fountain of youth.  Protein also helps you to stay full and satiated.


If you want to snack all the time try adding more protein to your meals and see if it reduces the need to reach for a pick-me-up


If you want to lose fat try adding more protein to your plate and see if it helps.


I’ve always thought that I had a sweet tooth.  I’ve found that eating enough protein has taken away my cravings for sweets.


Making sure that you’re building each meal with at least 30 grams of protein can do wonders for how you look and feel.


I hope you’re seeing how food matters when it comes to balancing your blood sugar.  Pick a protein, add plenty of vegetables, have a piece of fruit OR a grain, beans or potato and some healthy fat.


Stay tuned for next week where I’ll share my fourth best nutrition tip.
