    TODAY'S EPISODE:
    Today's episode is a solo episode (haven't done one of these in a while!!) I started hearing the term "Metabolic Syndrome" more and more often and I thought to myself.... "What the heck is Metabolic Syndrome?!"

    I thought I probably wasn't the only person who didn't know what that meant. And since over 88% of the population, according to a new study, is "metabolically unhealthy", I thought I should learn what it meant. 

    Well, I looked it up and guess what?! Metabolic Syndrome used to be known as INSULIN RESISTANCE SYNDROME!! 🤯

    WHY on Earth is mainstream medicine avoiding using the term INSULIN RESISTANCE when that's exactly what's happening. 

    WHY are they NOT using a test of insulin in the criteria to determine if you have Insulin Resistance Syndrome?!?!? 

    In this episode, I talk about what the criteria for Insulin Resistance Syndrome is, what is being missed by using this criteria, what marker is the first to go out of range and why it's so important to test this specific marker.

    I also talk about what insulin resistance is, the EARLY signs of Insulin Resistance, that this metric is missing. And finally, I talk about how to improve blood sugar and insulin sensitivity.

    I hope you find this episode and information valuable!!

    Foods that Will Spike your Insulin & the Drink that Reduces Blood Sugar with Dr. Elin Ostman | Episode 93

    TODAY'S GUEST:
    Dr. Elin Östman is an expert on the preventive potential of food in relation to metabolic syndrome, with special emphasis on blood glucose and appetite regulation. Dr. Elin is the Chief Scientist of GOOD IDEA, Inc.
    Before GOOD IDEA, Dr. Elin was an associate professor and senior lecturer in Applied Nutrition at the Food for Health Science Centre of Lund University in southern Sweden. Her 20-year career in academia comprises groundbreaking research on preventive food concepts and healthy diets to reduce lifestyle and diet-related conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
    To date, Dr. Elin has been a co-author of 49 peer-reviewed original articles and 3 reviews. She is a frequent speaker at international conferences and events in the field of nutrition and food science, and the co-founder of four food innovation-related start-up companies.
    In 2001, Dr. Elin published a paper establishing the connection between the intake of various milk products and surprisingly high insulin responses. Later on, her research group found that intake of whey before and with a meal rich in fast carbohydrates could substantially lower the blood sugar spike following a meal, similar to the “milk mechanism”. The presence of five specific essential amino acids appeared to be significant. An idea of effective blood glucose regulating food products was born, and a joint product development project was initiated with Food & Biotech company Aventure AB.
    When Dr. Elin and her colleagues at the Anti-diabetic Food Center isolated the five amino acids and added a small proportion of chromium, well known for its role in blood sugar regulation, the results were significant. 
    “Our first clinical study showed that the blend dissolved in water, taken before and with a carb-rich meal could reduce the post-meal blood sugar spike by 20-30%”, says Dr. Elin. “Repeated clinical studies confirmed the results, and we started working on a product that could help the body handle blood sugar spikes in a more efficient way.”
    Years of studies, product development, tasting panels, etc. later, Good Idea® is now available on the US market, and it has been very well received by both the professional health community and consumers.


    ON TODAY'S EPISODE:
    Dr. Elin and I talk about:
    How measuring glucose and insulin levels can help you understand how it affects your body.
    How measuring glucose and insulin levels can help you understand how it affects your bodyThe importance of the structure of foods for your glucose levelsHow different types of bread affect blood sugar levelsWays to increase bioavailability in foodWhy regulating insulin is better for digestionFoods to eat for a better blood sugar response and foods to avoidHow the Good Idea beverage can influence the glycemic response of a mealThe order to eat your meals for better blood sugar
