Did you just get a bit defensive? Does this scare you? It should.
Before we get too excited about reading a headline, let’s get more curious about it…
What does it mean to be metabolically fit? It doesn’t mean you have to spend most of your day in the gym. So what did this study look at? They looked at waist circumference, blood pressure, blood glucose, and blood lipids. When they found that only 12% of US adults, were good in all of those aspects. And in contrast, 88% failed one or more of these markers.

Food is the answer…mostly
It all starts with food. Period! It’s what we eat and how frequently we eat. The food we eat is either investing in our health or subsidizing our disease. Our food has changed significantly over the last 50 to 100 years.
Similar to the frog in the boiling water scenario, we’ve become so adapted to the food industry’s less-than-ethical practices, it has become part of our lifestyle and much more difficult to change.
Many times I’ve talked to people about what I do and how I help people live better lives, as a hypnotic nutrition coach, by changing what they eat and their mindset around food. And they say “Don’t make me give up my (fill in the blank-favorite processed food or drink)!” No, I won’t MAKE you do anything. But if you knew what that food-like substance was doing to every cell in your body and brain, you may change your mind. Then again…maybe not.
Something that very few people in the virus-prevention world are talking about is actual prevention. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very glad we have the science to come up with a cutting-edge vaccine. Admit it, most of the folks who have gotten very sick or died from the virus have not been metabolically fit. Why aren’t we talking about lifestyle and food choices? Because nobody makes money when folks change their diet and get healthy. There is a ton of science around controlling insulin and blood sugar and how it minimizes our risk of developing chronic disease and keeps the immune system primed to do its job.
What controls insulin and blood sugar the best?
For instance, intermittent fasting costs absolutely nothing and has these benefits:
- Controlling blood sugar and insulin sensitivity.
- Weight loss.
- Better focus.
- Better energy.
- Better sleep.
- Fights inflammation.
- Lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
- Lowers blood pressure.
- Fights aging.
- Increases longevity.
- Enhance immunity.
