Between the latest online fads and the crazy media headlines, it’s easier than ever to get confused about your health. If you want to make better decisions about your health today so you can feel better and live longer, you’ve come to the right place.
Do you feel like your cravings are out of control? Are you worried that the sugar in carbs and fructose is sending your insulin on a roller coaster that is the culprit behind your weight gain? And why is it that the amount and types of food we intend to consume rarely line up with our actual dietary intake? I know how frustrating it can be to change your dietary plan and continue to fail in your attempt to lose weight. And while there are limitations to the idea that carbs are the culprit behind weight gain, there are some truths that I want to make sure you are aware of as well.
I’m joined today by Dr. Stephan Guyenet, scientist, author of The Hungry Brain, and creator of the Red Pen Reviews website to discuss the facts and myths behind our cravings and our instincts. Dr. Guyenet explains the role that carbs play in our health and weight loss (or gain) and offers insights into the reasons that all too often, we eat more than we intended to. He sheds light on the best way to sort out the highest quality information available in the myriad of health books and offers some simple and very doable ways that anyone can retrain their brain to crave the foods that will optimize health and minimize cravings, starting today.
