Most people don’t realize what kind of negative impact their favorite foods have on their blood sugar—and subsequently their entire body. The symptoms of blood sugar imbalances are everyday occurrences for most people—things like cravings, fatigue, acne, and moodiness—but they don’t have to be!
On today’s mini-episode, I sat down with Jessie Inchauspé, also known as the “Glucose Goddess,” to talk all about simple, realistic actions we can take to balance our blood sugar throughout the day.
Jessie Inchauspé is on a mission to translate cutting-edge science into easy tips to help people improve their physical and mental health. She’s the founder of the wildly popular Instagram account @GlucoseGoddess, where she teaches life-changing food habits to hundreds of thousands of people. Jessie holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from King’s College London and a master’s degree in biochemistry from Georgetown University. Her work at a genetic analysis start-up in Silicon Valley made her realize that, as the key to good health, food habits beat genetics. In her first book, Glucose Revolution, Jessie shares her startling discovery about the essential role of blood sugar in every aspect of our lives, from cravings to fertility, and the surprising hacks to optimize it while still eating the foods we love.
In this episode we dive into:
- Hacks to keep glucose levels steady throughout the day
- What happens in your body when you have a large glucose spike
- The long-term consequences of glucose spikes
- Food sequencing to reduce a glucose spike
