Controlling insulin and balancing your blood sugar are critical for balancing your mood, focusing, having energy, and preventing all the age-related brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.
Besides avoiding flour and sugar products, eating smaller more frequent meals keeps your blood sugar even and prevents swings in energy, mood and appetite. This helps with anxiety and depression, and you will automatically lose weight.
For breakfast every day eat protein such as whole omega-3 eggs, soy or rice protein shakes, and nut butters. Besides controlling your appetite and helping you lose weight, protein in the morning provides the amino acids necessary to produce all the neurotransmitters needed for optimal brain function.
Eat something every four hours to keep your insulin and glucose levels normal.
Eat a small protein snack in the morning and afternoon such as a handful of almonds.
When possible, avoid eating during the two to three hours before you go to bed. If you have a snack earlier in the day, you won’t be as hungry and eat as much later in the day.
During the preparation week, begin to transition into this routine.
