When you have high insulin levels, is that a symptom of something related to your diet? For example, does your blood sugar spike after eating?
The biggest questions related to your health come from the body's reaction to sugars, and I have found that fake sugars make brain health worse. The more sugar you eat, the greater the chance of brain fog and the greater chance that there is a resistance to sugar. Ultimately, we have to focus on finding a cure for insulin resistance cure. This podcast addresses it.

Does Will Power Really Stop Food Cravings?
What happens when you have cravings and end up being hungry for more food? When it comes to cravings and the health of your gut, you can tell a lot as to how good your digestion is by the types of cravings you have. I know most of you, at one time or another, have said, "I'm hungry" or "I'm starving", but are cravings good or bad for you? How can you tell?
Here's a tip for you. If you get those 3:00 PM crashes, most of the people associate blood sugar related issues with actual hunger, and there's a huge difference in addressing that. So, if you get those 3:00 PM crashes and you think to yourself, okay, what kind of foods do I really want, and you think about maybe a steak or a potato or an avocado, then generally it's nutritionally based. What that means is that your body's just not getting enough nutrients from the foods, the good foods, that you're eating.
Mental Power Digestion
Is there a connection between your gut and your brain? Is the brain or the gut more powerful? Knowing which has the power to control what you eat is the key to resolving any health or digestion related issues you may have.
What part of your body is more powerful in determining what you eat, you brain or your gut? I'm going to use an illustration to prove my point.
But let's say you've got that 3:00 pm crashing and you start to feel lethargic and your mind's saying, "Hey we need some food, food, food," and you start thinking about all those specific foods. But let's say you go pick out some potato chips, some sour cream and onion. You take that back to your desk, all the sudden you eat it. You feel, "Oh, that's great. And then about 10 minutes later you feel like you're hungry again.
Why Oatmeal Is Bad
One of the most beloved breakfast foods is oatmeal. Unfortunately, most people have a bit of a misconception when it comes to eating it, and whether it is truly healthy for us. Are you the type that can eat your oatmeal simply plain? Or do you like you oatmeal with all the fixings creating your ultimate culinary masterpiece. The difference can tell a lot about your health.
