Sugars are a common problem for many of us in our day to day diet. The average American over consumes sugar at a rapid rate and not always intentionally. This over-consumption of sugar in our diet had led to a multitude of health issues in our country such as obesity and diabetes. In the female population over-consumption of sugar has been shown to effect the gut microbiome which is thought to heavily influence our neurotransmitter balance and our mood. So not only does all this sugar make us fat but makes us moody about it too!
We realize that it is easy to tell someone to eat healthier but it is hard to do in real life on a day to day basis. The reason for that is for most people in order to be healthier our day to day lifestyle has to be different and just like your bad habits didn't develop overnight a consistent healthier lifestyle can take some time to build for the average person. We are here to help you learn the foundation of what you need to know so that healthier choices become just as easy for you as the bad ones used to be. Our physician will meet with a small group of 4 at a local Whole Food Store (Upper Kirby area) and specifically review with the group what is an appropriate amount of sugar to have in your diet and what ingredients to look for in common foods that we buy that mimic sugar in our bodies. Will also review what sugars cause a slower release of insulin in the bloodstream and how to incorporate sugar into your diet in a healthy way. Handouts will be given.
