    How To Reduce Cravings, Balance Blood Sugar, Improve Energy, And Feel Better with Jessie Inchauspé

    enMay 17, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • The Glucose Goddess Method for Balancing Blood Sugar and Improving HealthBalancing glucose levels through the Glucose Goddess Method can improve overall health, prevent cravings, aid in hormonal health, improve sleep, and prevent long-term diseases like Alzheimer's. Early detection and combatting of insulin resistance and pre-diabetes is critical for everyone's well-being.

      Insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, and poor metabolic health affects 93.2% of the population, and is the root cause of so many chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and dementia. Jesse Inchauspé, the author of 'Glucose Revolution,' created the 'Glucose Goddess Method,' which helps people balance their blood sugar through practical four-week plans. Balancing glucose levels can improve physical and mental health, prevent cravings, aid in hormonal health, better sleep, and prevent long-term diseases like Alzheimer's. The biggest concern is that 90% of people with pre-diabetes do not realize they have it, and metabolic unhealthiness can affect both overweight and thin individuals. Combatting poor metabolic health is critical for everyone's overall well-being.

    • The Glucose Goddess Method: A Four-Week Plan for Optimal HealthThe Glucose Goddess method simplifies glucose level management through four fundamental principles which can combat symptoms and improve overall health. Everyone should prioritize glucose level management for prevention of metabolic health issues.

      The Glucose Goddess method simplifies studying glucose levels by incorporating four fundamental principles into a four-week plan. By addressing blood sugar imbalances, individuals can combat symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, inflammation, and hormone imbalances. The method lays the foundation for improved overall health, energy, and mental clarity. It is important for everyone to understand glucose levels and their impacts, as poor metabolic health can lead to a range of issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Even those without pre-diabetes or diabetes should prioritize glucose level management for prevention purposes, as the modern food landscape is difficult to navigate and often leads to unhealthy habits.

    • Maintaining Optimal Blood Sugar Levels for Overall HealthMonitoring fasting blood sugar levels and glucose levels after eating, along with insulin levels, can reduce the risks of negative health outcomes associated with high insulin levels and blood sugar variability.

      Maintaining optimal blood sugar levels is important for overall health, but 'normal' levels may not be adequate. Fasting blood sugar levels should ideally be below 85 milligrams per deciliter, and glucose levels should increase by less than 30 milligrams per deciliter after eating. Additionally, insulin levels play a crucial role in blood sugar regulation and should be monitored alongside glucose levels. Hyperinsulinemia (high insulin levels) is a silent epidemic that can lead to many negative health outcomes. Keeping variability in blood sugar levels low, even in those with type 2 diabetes, is important for reducing risks of heart attacks and other health issues.

    • The Importance of Balancing Glucose Levels for Your HealthMonitoring fasting insulin levels, paying attention to cravings and fatigue, and sequencing food with vegetables first, proteins and fats second, and starches and sugars last can balance glucose levels, making you feel fuller, reducing cravings, and maintaining overall wellbeing.

      Balancing glucose levels is essential for overall health, and can be achieved through methods such as monitoring fasting insulin levels and paying attention to cravings and fatigue. Food sequencing is also an important factor, with the correct order being vegetables first, then proteins and fats, and lastly starches and sugars. Fiber found in vegetables creates a protective mesh in the gut that reduces the number of glucose molecules entering the bloodstream, making you feel fuller and reducing cravings. While fruit may seem natural and healthy, human intervention in breeding has made modern fruit extra sweet and less fiber-rich, making it best to consume with fiber intact. Ultimately, achieving balanced glucose levels is key to maintaining overall wellbeing.

    • The Impact of a Savory Breakfast on Glucose Levels and Overall HealthEating a protein and fat-rich savory breakfast can help activate mechanisms for improved muscle synthesis, stem cell production, and healing. Balancing glucose levels naturally can reduce the risk of fatty liver and insulin resistance caused by fructose.

      Switching to a savory breakfast can change people's experience of themselves and their lives deeply by reducing the swings of glucose. Fasting is fine, but breaking the fast is equally important and should be done in a savory fashion with protein and fat to activate secondary mechanisms that help improve muscle protein synthesis, stem cell production, and repair and healing. The glucose revolution method can help impact blood sugar levels in people. The food industry's concept of breakfast being sweet is an invention and switching back to a savory breakfast can make people feel more like themselves. Fructose, which is present in fruits, doesn't raise blood sugar but can cause fatty liver and insulin resistance. Balancing glucose levels naturally can reduce fructose as both of them are pairing food compounds. Refeeding process is what activates secondary mechanisms, not just intermittent or timer feeding.

    • The Glucose Goddess Method for Optimal Health and Well-beingBy following a simple 4-week program of eating a savory breakfast, drinking vinegar before sweets, adding veggies and 10 minutes of movement, one can improve hunger, cravings, energy, sleep, mental health, and hormonal health, and even lose weight without trying.

      The Glucose Goddess Method, a simple yet effective 4-week program that consists of eating a savory breakfast, drinking a vinegar drink before consuming something sweet, adding a veggie starter to one meal, and doing 10 minutes of movement after a meal, has shown remarkable results in improving hunger, cravings, energy, sleep, mental health, and hormonal health. 99% of participants expressed their intention to continue these hacks in their daily lives. Additionally, 38% of people lost weight without trying. This method is not just about weight loss, but about fixing underlying issues, which can lead to significant improvements in overall health. The program is an easy on-ramp to steady glucose and can change one's biology very quickly.

    • The Power of Protein, Fat, and Fiber for a Healthy BreakfastFocus on savory breakfasts with limited ingredients for energy and health. Incorporate vinegar to balance glucose levels and optimize your biological system. Avoid sweet breakfasts, except for whole fruits.

      In order to have a healthy and fulfilling breakfast, it's important to focus on protein, fat, and fiber, and avoid anything sweet except whole fruits. Week one of the method focuses on savory breakfasts that can be simple and easy to prepare, with recipes that use six ingredients or less and take no more than 15 minutes to make. Incorporating vinegar into your diet can also have benefits for glucose levels, and there is scientific evidence to support this. By making small changes like these, you can improve your energy levels, avoid crashes throughout the day, and optimize your biological system for better health.

    • Using Vinegar for Better Blood Sugar ControlAdding a tablespoon of vinegar before a high-carb meal slows down starch breakdown and insulin release, reducing glucose spikes by up to 30%. This healthy hack can mitigate the effects of eating high-carb meals and lower the risk of blood sugar rollercoasters.

      Adding one tablespoon of vinegar before a high-carb meal can significantly reduce the impact of glucose spikes and insulin release. This is because vinegar contains ascetic acid, which slows down the breakdown of starches into glucose and signals muscles to produce glycogen more abundantly. Vinegar can also slow down gastric emptying, further reducing glucose spikes and insulin secretion. The reduction can be up to 30% and 20% respectively, with any type of vinegar being just as effective. Taking vinegar in the morning also has a long-term impact. Cultural knowledge of vinegar's health benefits dates back centuries, with vinegar teas given to people with type one diabetes in the 18th century. This one simple hack can mitigate the effects of eating high-carb meals and lower the risk of blood sugar rollercoasters.

    • Adding Vegetables to Your Daily Diet for Better HealthIncluding a plate of fiber-rich vegetables in one meal a day, along with a 10-minute walk after eating, can help regulate glucose levels and promote gut health. This simple addition can lead to transformative health benefits.

      Adding a plate of vegetables to the beginning of one meal a day in week three of the glucose goddess method can have significant health benefits. Fiber, found in vegetables, coats the upper part of your intestine, preventing too many glucose molecules from entering your bloodstream too quickly. Additionally, fiber feeds your gut bacteria, promoting overall gut health. A 30% veggie starter with raw or cooked vegetables, dressed in vinegar, can be a simple and effective way to incorporate more fiber into your diet. Moving for just 10 minutes after a meal, such as a light walk, can also significantly reduce glucose spikes. Implementing these habits in addition to others outlined in the method can lead to transformative health benefits.

    • The 10-minute hack to steady glucose levelsMoving for 10 minutes after a meal can help muscles absorb glucose from the bloodstream. Listening to our body's messages and creating healthy habits can lead to a steady glucose level.

      The hack to steady glucose is to move for 10 minutes after a meal within 90 minutes of completing the meal. Simple movements like calf raises, bicep curls, or intense activities like ice skating can help muscles soak up glucose from the bloodstream. Most of us give our body too much fuel which leads to health problems. The symptoms are messages from our body trying to communicate with us. Creating a friendship and partnership with our body can help us understand these messages and choose healthier habits. By incorporating these easy principles, we can reconnect with our body and have a steady glucose level.

    #358 How To Control Your Blood Sugar, Cut Cravings and Get Your Energy Back with Jessie Inchauspé

    #358 How To Control Your Blood Sugar, Cut Cravings and Get Your Energy Back with Jessie Inchauspé

    CAUTION: The advice in this episode may not be suitable for anyone with an eating disorder. If you have an existing health condition or are taking medication, always consult your healthcare practitioner before making changes to your diet.


    My guest this week believes that how you feel right now is directly linked to your blood-sugar level. And if you want to feel better than you do right now, you don’t necessarily need to change what you eat – just how.


    Jessie Inchauspé is a French biochemist and author, whose first book, Glucose Revolution, spoke to the life-changing power of balancing your blood-sugar and her latest book, The Glucose Goddess Method sets out a four-week, four-step plan to help you do just that.


    Before writing The Glucose Goddess Method, Jessie recruited 2,700 volunteers through social media to test her programme. The results are quite astounding: 70 percent of those who followed her plan for four weeks reported better energy; 90 percent had reduced cravings; 40 percent of the participants with type-2 diabetes reduced their diabetes markers. Ninety-nine percent of those who took part said they were impressed enough to continue the habits for life.


    Jessie believes blood sugar is the one metric that has the most effects in the body, from balancing hormones to improving energy, mood, immunity, skin, sleep, ageing, weight and much more. During this conversation, she breaks down the science of exactly what glucose is, how it’s used by the body, and why an excess of sugary or starchy foods can cause a blood-glucose spike. She explains why glucose is our body’s favourite energy source, used by every cell, but that too many spikes, too often, will lead to adverse health effects.


    Realising that very many of us struggle with sticking to the ‘best’ or ‘right’ diet, Jessie wanted to find ways that we could all enjoy the foods we love, without suffering spikes. By adopting her four ways of eating – one at a time, bit by bit – you can minimise glucose spikes and, in turn, the short and longer-term health issues they create.


    Jessie is a really fantastic communicator who is able to simplify complex science and give you actionable information that you can implement immediately. I hope you enjoy listening.

    Looking Deeply into Sexual Craving

    Looking Deeply into Sexual Craving
    Dear friends,
     
    Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
     
    Earlier this week, the worldwide sangha was informed that Thay is in the hospital. The monastic community has asked lay friends around the world to practice mindfulness, stability and peace to support our beloved teacher, remembering that we are all cells of the great sangha body that Thay has manifested in his lifetime. More information can be found via official announcements at plumvillage.org.
     
    For the podcast today, we bring you a rich sharing from our monastics during a question and answer session at this year's General Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. A retreatant asks how to work with and transform strong sexual cravings. The monastics respond insightfully on how to practice, look deeply, and see clearly into the nature of sexual energy. With mindfulness and equanimity, everything is possible.
     
    Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast on Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter. We welcome dharma sharings from our worldwide listeners on any of our online homes or by email. Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.
