Is Your Current Diet Working?
I think about this quite a bit when people ask me how they should eat.
My answer usually ends up with “how is effecting you?”
Here are a few ways to determine if your diet works for you…
1) Blood Glucose Levels: optimal range is 75-85 fasting and shouldn’t spike much over 100
2) Post-meal Fatigue: do your meals make you tired? If so, something’s out of whack.
3) Unexplained Weight Gain: you “eat right” and workout yet you have extra weight. You shouldn’t have to kill yourself with workouts to achieve optimal body composition.
4) Inflammation and or IBS: if you constantly feel inflamed or suffer from bouts of cranky bowels, you could be eating something that’s disrupting your GI.
