This one is for all the calorie counters out there: Did you know that your body is probably already doing the math and tally for you? Researchers at the University of Sydney found that appetite may be closely linked to the balance of nutrients in the diets, rather than the calories consumed. The key here being PROTEIN. For example when we do not get enough protein we will eat until our protein stores are met. And here is the rule of thumb in regards to how much protein each person needs. For optimal function multiply 0.7 X your body weight (0.7 X 120 pounds = 84 grams of protein). And if you are active or an athlete you need to bump that up to 0.9 x body weight (0.9 x 120 = 108 grams). This is personalized medicine for YOU- what YOUR body needs in protein daily. So are you getting your adequate protein stores? Could this be the reason you might be struggling to lose weight or feel more energy in your daily life?

The adrenal glands, which sit on top of the kidneys, support us through stressful events. They secrete hormones that make us resilient in times of difficulty, like a sleepless night, illness, surgery, stress at work, stress at home, loss of a loved one, meltdowns at the store with toddlers, financial pressure, etc. The challenges – whether they’re short-term, long-term, severe or relatively mild – can have a cumulative negative affect on adrenal function.

Green tea has a long history of use, having been first brewed in China back in 2737 BC. Its major active component—epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCg) —is one of the most extensively studied polyphenols, and a wide body of research backs up what East Asian grandmothers have known for generations: a few cups a day might not keep the doctor away, but their beneficial effects on health might make the doctor’s job a little easier.With carbohydrate intolerance and eventual development of metabolic syndrome being tied to an ever-increasing number of downstream health issues, patients can always use another natural tool in their arsenal to help manage blood glucose and insulin levels.
