I can’t wait! Come September 14th, during the lunch hour, 12noon, at Columbus, OH JDRF (or more so 200 W Wilson Bridge Building (Worthington Industries)—conference room #132), I will be pumping the crowd with all my nutrition tactics when it comes to blood sugar control. I hope to see you there!

PRESENTATION: Using Food As Medicine

The food we choose to eat has an immediate impact on our blood sugar, and each day we are given the chance to assess, learn, and improve. In 25 years, I have learned and continue to learn through my blood sugar data and current research, low carb proves to be successful. But are all carbs equal? How low should we go? What unconventional wisdom is the biggest payoff to know for long-term health? With every bite of food, we are giving ourselves the chance to not only survive but thrive. Our grocery list shall be a prescription pad, and our kitchen is a pharmacy. I invite you to come and participate in learning how to use food as medicine. Discover what type of meal is best to begin your day with for blood sugar control and hormonal balance, and how to go from there, to live a rich, energized, and sexy life.
