Episode Summary

Keeping your blood sugar balanced allows you to optimize your metabolism, lets you feel alert and energized, and also prevents chronic illness and disease. 

But how do we make sure our blood sugar is in check? 

Kara Collier joins me today in my podcast as the creator of Nutrisense, a continuous glucose monitor that tracks blood sugar levels. And anyone can use Nutrisense! Now, you may have heard me rave about my love for continuous glucose monitors– or CGMs but why am I so passionate about such a little device?

With the feedback you get from a CGM, you can learn so much about what’s happening with your body in relation to your diet, lifestyle, and behaviors. 

When you use a CGM, you’re seeing the trends in your blood sugar levels in real-time, and you can get loads of useful insight into your metabolic health. 

Kara and I are here today to inspire you to take the leap and try a CGM. Because the information you get from it will change the trajectory of your health and your life. 

And Nutrisense isn’t just a CGM. With Nutrisense you not only get insight into what happens to your blood sugar levels, but you also get personalized guidance from a registered nutritionist. Trust me, the CGM paired with the technology of Nutrisense is absolutely game-changing. And I can’t wait for you to hear all about it.

So join Kara and me as we dive deep into the importance of keeping track of your blood sugar, and discuss ways to get off the blood sugar roller coaster.  

We offer you tools to help keep your blood sugar stable so you can boost your metabolism, and start to feel your best! Plus, I’ll give you a discount code so you can try Nutrisense for yourself, and you’ll get one month free of dietician support!

“I recommend someone wear one [CGM] for a month. In an ideal scenario, I’d say three months, because that’s where I see massive behavioral change.” 

“The more progressive cognitive declining conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s are potentially driven or at least play a critical role in deregulated blood sugar and in insulin resistance over time.” 

“These are real-time disruptive symptoms that are an indicator that something isn’t right in terms of our energy processing systems within our cellular energy.” 

“The CGM is so profound. You really begin to listen to your body in a very different way, and you start to connect the dots.” 

“Walking is one of the first things that I’m doing to help support blood flow to my brain. I was so giddy and tickled by the benefits of walking post-meal just to help keep that blood sugar at a good reasonable place, especially if we ate a little bit later.”
