  • High blood pressure

  • High blood sugar (linked to dementia)



of Americans currently have good metabolic health. Everyone else displays one or more features indicating metabolic dysfunction- their bodies are not utilizing and processing fat and carbohydrates efficiently.

The Keys to Metabolic Health

Too much sugar: We current eat nearly 10x more sugar daily than we did 100 years ago. This eventually leads to excess glucose.

Too much food: We eat more food than ever before yet our bodies have not evolved to handle this level of incoming energy.

Ultra processed foods and beverages causing metabolic imbalance

We are more sedentary than ever.

Not getting enough sleep

Increased environmental and synthetic toxin exposure, including plastics in food, fabrics and cosmetics. Toxins interfere with how our body uses and extracts energy.

  • Get gut healthy- metabolic health intricately linked to your gut microbiome
  • Make smart food choices- both quantity and quality of food we eat matter. Reducing our sugar consumption, eating lots of fruit, veggies, whole grains and proteins, while avoiding processed foods helps. Focus on appropriate portion sizes so our bodies can handle the levels of incoming energy.
  • Aim for high-quality sleep
  • Exercise regularly
  • Reduce Stress - aim for a positive mindset, and practice fulfillment
  • Stay hydrated
  • Enjoy sunshine and nature
