Most of us are simply eating too much, whether it’s too often or too much per meal. Let’s stop talking about what to eat for a moment, and discuss when to eat.
Step 1 – Stop Snacking. Restrict yourself to eating 3 meals a day – NO snacks! Constant snacking is spiking insulin levels and the sugar is backing up in the system creating insulin resistance.
Step 2 – Intermittent Fast. Slide breakfast-time to noon or later and allow your body those extra hours in fat-burning mode. Intermittent fasting means only eating during a 6-hour window.
Fasting allows you to lower your insulin levels and optimize your body’s ability to deal with sugar & lose weight.
2. Sugar Fast
Once the timing is controlled (when you eat), let’s look at what you’re eating.
Americans are eating 150 lbs of sugar a year! – that’s an addiction. The only way to overcome addiction is to quit cold-turkey and remove it from your system. Kick sugar cravings and allow your body to heal itself.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has been shown to reduce your sugar levels & reduce your insulin levels better than Metformin (a diabetes drug!). How to take it: 2 tablespoons in the morning, and 2 tablespoons at night.
These 3 tools will get you well on your way to reversing diabetes, get you in fat-burning mode (instead of sugar burning-mode) and controlling insulin so your body can heal and ultimately lose excess weight.
