Today is a huge day. KYPO is pumped to welcome our newest COACH, Sam Wierzbicki (@samwellnutrition)! Sam is a soon to be RD (Registered Dietitian) finishing her Masters as a Dietetic Intern at NYU. She is incredibly brilliant, a dynamic communicator, and has already added so much to this industry.
Today on the podcast we pick her brain about all things SUGAR.
The first advice you hear when you want to get healthier is to cut out sugar, but that why?
Will that backfire?
Is that necessary?
"There is no way that your willpower is going to override the basic biochemical mechanism of the body needing food and nutrients. And in a powerful way, that takes away a lot of the guilt and shame around food decisions... It is your body signaling that you need to eat in a different way or in a more consistent way."
Here is everything you will learn on this episode:
-The difference between natural vs added sugar
-Why low carb diets "work" and why they DON'T
-How our biochemistry controls our cravings, not our willpower
-How to live ALONGSIDE sugar, rather than cutting it out and then thinking you "can't control yourself" around it
-Understanding blood sugar from a physiological and a PRACTICAL level
-How the billion dollar diet industry benefits from you staying aimless, confused, and blaming yourself
-5 tangible takeaways to change your relationship with sugar today
If you can manage your blood sugar levels you are no longer reliant on food, you aren't feeling HANGRY, you aren't over triggering insulin (our fat storage hormone), and you are able to stay fuller for longer.
