Let's Discuss: 5 Basic Steps

Updated: Nov 3, 2023

If you're like me, you don't want to read a lengthy blog post, just cut to the chase, give me the information or recipe and let's all move on with our day. Right? So this one is for you.

If you have been struggling with insulin, blood sugar, cholesterol (yep, it's a player in this cycle, too), weight gain on the run away train, "hormone issues"...grab a chair, it will be a quick run down of things you can do now to start turning this mess around. Because I see you, I feel you. Constantly feeling like you're on a legit hot-mess hormonal express is misery for you and everyone around you.

So, where to start? 5 easy steps to start today:

  1. Go for a walk after dinner. 10 min. Breathe some fresh air. Chat with your partner. Go alone and think clearly for the first time all day. The kitchen and dishes will wait, I promise. They are patient.

  2. Go to bed by 10pm. If you're struggling with getting good sleep and feeling rested in the morning, it's time to talk with your provider about evaluating what's going on between sunset and sunrise. Sleep apnea, medications and hormones can all wreak havoc on good sleep. Good sleep is crucial to weight loss. The more hours before midnight you're asleep, the more work your body can get done. The happier it will be.

  3. Meditate. 10 min. Learning to sit still. Be present and send soothing messages back to the brain is a powerful game-changer in the battle against rouge blood sugar, insulin and cortisol.

  4. Protein + Fiber. Aim for at least 30-40g protein and 10-12g (minimum) fiber with every meal. This helps stimulate the natural "ozempic" chemicals in your body and keeps glucose (blood sugar) and insulin levels stable for hours. Stable mood, stable hormones, better sleep, less's magical.

  5. Hydrate. When you wake up, drink 24-40 oz water + lemon (herbal teas are even better!), by mid-morning have another 20-30 oz of hydration. Mid-afternoon, repeat. Read about my favorite ways to hydrate (hint, they aren't plain boring water!)

These are all free, simple ways to make huge improvements in your hormonal health and battle against the belly weight.

If you aren't sure what else could be beneficial for you or would like help starting some simple changes, our health coaches and nutrition coaches are awesome at helping people just like you create a game plan and make sustainable, effective changes. You can chat with a provider about your concerns and what would be best, schedule a quick 15-min call.
