The Lucas Rockwood Show

As health seekers, we obsess over the micro-changes in our food and fitness routines. Micro changes are fun and interesting, but it's much wiser to first address the big elephants in the room. One of those big beasts is sugar in all its various forms. It causes weight gain, metabolic imbalance, premature aging, and contributes to just about every illness imaginable. The good news is you can monitor, reduce, and manage your blood sugar very effectively at home once you know how. On this week's show with Dr. Ritamarie, you'll learn the in's and out's of how to balance your blood sugar.

Listen & Learn:

  • How sugar impacts your hormonal balance and lead to weight gain
  • Why sugar in small quantities is essential but in high doses is toxic
  • Why sugar is everywhere and unless you've avoiding it, you're probably over-eating it  
  • Why belly fat is the worst type of fat
