    76: The importance of Magnesium (it's relationship with blood sugar) and how to know if you're deficient...

    76: The importance of Magnesium (it's relationship with blood sugar) and how to know if you're deficient...

    About This Episode

    Magnesium affects and interacts with literally every single area of the body. This means if you are deficient, you will experience whole-body symptoms, and some that are truly weird! It also makes it hard to diagnose because the symptoms align with symptoms of many other conditions. If you're lacking an appetite, have sore muscles or joints all the time even if you don't work out, generally feel tired or blah, have crappy skin, weak nails, losing your hair, struggling to sleep and your blood sugars are erratic as hell - you need to listen to this episode to find out if you might be Magnesium deficient (and find out what you can do about it)...

    About This Episode

    If trying to figure out what to cook for dinner is adding to your daily mental load.... I get it.. and i've got you! I also feel the stress of this, and it adds a huge amount to my mental load as well. But lately my partner and I have come up with a strategy that has helped us alleviate the stress this causes, and has made dinners a lot more efficient, consistent and affordable! I also share about my carb counted recipe database that you can get access to here, to further reduce the stress and time spent counting carbs for your dinners.

    73: 10 Reasons why you might be feeling like shit everyday (P.s it's not just because of t1d)

    About This Episode

    Hands up if you're not feeling so good lately🥴..(maybe it's been more than just lately?) Time goes by so fast and it can be really easy to miss how long you've actually been feeling PLAIN AWFUL everyday - and this means we tend to just brush it off and don't do anything about it! Total missed opportunity, because a lot of the time the things that are making us not feel our best are in our control to improve! Let's find out if any of these could be the reason/s why you're not feeling so good..
