Stable blood sugar. It's the goal if you have type 2 diabetes or you're looking to prevent it. In my 20 years of nutrition experience, I've learned how to take the complicated science of nutrition and make it very simple. In this 30 minute class I'll be sharing how to eat to have stable blood sugar. There's no need to count grams of this or micrograms of that. I'll share a simple way to balance your meals and snacks to keep you off the blood sugar rollercoaster. There's also no need to give up your favourite foods - I'll teach you how you can still enjoy them, without sending your blood sugar skyrocketing. The long history of diabetes in my family is what inspired me to become a dietitian. If you have type 2 diabetes or diabetes runs in your family too, you will want to eat this way. It's how I eat.

Do you feel challenged when trying to keep your blood sugar balanced? Cravings on top of cravings, feeling deprived and restricted and always trying to do the right thing is really difficult. I understand, I have been there, but I have found solutions. Let me share them with you. If you are feeling uncomfortable and out of control, I get it and I am here to help you. It does not have to be difficult to reach your desired health outcomes and you don't have to feel alone. I will share my journey and how I finally got off the blood sugar roller coaster. It's not about perfectionism, this pursuit of health, and following all the 'rules' but about changing your mindset. We expect ourselves to be perfect and it's just not realistic. I will share with you how being easier on yourself and adding the right ingredients into your life is the path to ease and grace and finding your balance. I know you might feel like you've tried everything. Are you ready for a new perspective? What if you believed you had control of your destiny and it didn't have to be difficult? Things do become easier just by believing something different about yourself. We are the results of our thoughts, actions and attitudes, and it all starts with your beliefs. You will learn tools to believe in yourself and to uncover beliefs that do not serve you. Are you ready to start believing and applying the actions that create the life and great health you deserve? Here is what you will learn when you join my 'stop sabotaging behaviors' live call: 1 Cravings, their cause and how to control them. 2 Use the power of your brain to balance blood sugar. 3 How I went from unhealthy and unhappy to healthy and happy and how you can too.
