We all want to live the healthiest life possible so that life can be more active and enjoyable for our family and ourselves. Even though we seem to have the best intentions of improving our health and losing weight, the reality is that for most of us it seems to be a daunting challenge. Excess weight can lead to other health issues like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular issues, polycystic ovarian syndrome, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, renal issues and even some cancers. Diet and exercise is the mantra, but where does one begin? Many times, even with the best medical advice, we find that weight loss can be a struggle. Finding the right approach to a healthy lifestyle can make all the difference to your weight, health and well-being. I have found that a data driven diet is a key that unlocks the door to a lifestyle of health.
Watching the Important Numbers
We are all accustomed to simply following our doctor’s recommendations based upon blood tests and our weight. These numbers can reflect whether treatment is necessary. Bad numbers are your body’s way of communicating with you. A major problem occurs when medication is prescribed that treats/masks the symptoms but does not address the root cause of the problem. What is causing those numbers to spike? The right approach and diet can help you do that.
The Ideal Approach to Dieting
There are many diets out there and if you are like me, you have tried more than you care to remember. I read somewhere that on any given day 1 in 3 women are dieting and 1 in 4 men are dieting. What does that say about diets? Diets are short lived and do not translate into a lifestyle. That can all change when you try my approach of a data driven diet that leads to a data driven lifestyle. No more dieting once you learn how to properly fuel your body. My program provides you with a customized health plan that is sustainable and ensures measurable results. The data driven approach gives you information 90 minutes after you eat a meal or a snack. You will discover what food and beverages work for you, your weight and health by checking blood glucose levels (as a diabetic does) for 3- 4 months or “tuning in.”
