How important is blood sugar stability to your overall health? What happens if we don’t have that? How should we be eating for optimal energy, brain function, and to achieve satiety?
In this episode of the Align Podcast, Dr. Will Cole and I discuss how exactly fasting affects our levels of hunger and our health. In fact, fasting in a ketogenic diet, where most of the diet is plant-based, is a proven and effective way to help stabilize blood sugar, if done consistently.
Plus, Will discusses the benefits of eating and living intuitively and why he supports this lifestyle, beyond what the medical data says. He encourages people to check within themselves; check on their sleep quality, their energy levels, their brain functions, and to learn to listen to what feels better for themselves. This is the best way to achieve optimal health; by simply listening to your body.
