     November is National Diabetes Month and with one-third of Americans having diabetes or pre-diabetes, we've got some work to do.  Diabetes is a serious disease that can lead to many complications including blindness, amputation, kidney failure, dementia, stroke, heart disease and death.  We've been under the impression that diabetes is just something you will automatically develop if you have a genetic pre-disposition and that once you develop diabetes, you'll be on medication for the rest of your life.  The truth is this:  most cases of type 2 diabetes are completely avoidable and even if you already have type 2 diabetes, chances are it's reversible with personalized lifestyle and nutrition-related changes.  [Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune process and is a different story, but lifestyle and nutrition still remain very important in its treatment].

     Type 2 diabetes prevention and reversal requires change, which is hard....

     

March is National Nutrition Month and this year the theme is “Eat Right. Live Right. Feel Right.”  That really sums it up for me.  The foods we put into our bodies affect the way we feel physically and psychologically.  Do you notice that you feel sleepy after eating?  Do you get bloated, feel nauseous, or have heartburn?  Do your joints ache?  Do you get headaches frequently?  What about sinus infections?  Do you suffer from fatigue, depression, anxiety, or brain fog?  How about stubborn belly fat?  All of these symptoms are likely related to food.

It’s not really all that productive to think about the past or dwell on the ‘what if’s’, but if I had the ability to go back in time and change anything, what would it be? In thinking about all the situations I’ve been in and obstacles I’ve faced over the years, I have to say lack of self-confidence has been key to all the things I might want to go back and change. Having more self-confidence would have allowed me to avoid some situations, but it would have most certainly allowed me to meet some of my personal goals earlier in life.

When thinking about past patients/clients that I have counseled on meeting their weight loss or fitness goals, lack of self-confidence seems to be a hidden theme. Many of us don’t want to admit that we’re afraid to try something new, or push our bodies past what we think they can handle. It’s uncomfortable to get out of our routine when we are unsure of what t...
