Episode 402

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Carlee Hayes is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and the Lead Dietitian at NutriSense, a company that leverages continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology and data to prevent disease and improve health span. With an extensive background in nutrition counseling, weight management, and metabolic health, Carlee is on a mission to stop preventable disease and help people live their healthiest lives.

Conversations around blood sugar dysregulation and blood sugar balancing are important because blood sugar affects all aspects of human physiology. Inflammation and disrupted hormones caused by high blood sugar directly contribute to specific diseases and conditions, including diabetes, PCOS, leaky gut, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer.

What factors are most important in weight loss – calorie restriction or blood sugar regulation?

In this episode we explore that question with with Carlee. We also acknowledge that there is shift happening in health and nutrition, towards a more functional, bio-individual approach and how only YOUR body can tell you what is best for YOUR health. Using a CGM is one way to give yourself health clarity in health, removing some of the guess work that comes with lack of data.

If you’ve ever wondered, how many carbs can YOUR body handle eating before spiking blood glucose? How your workouts impact your blood sugar? Your blood sugar patterns during fasting windows? A CGM can provide you with the data to answer those questions.

When you sign up with Nutrisense, all plans include complimentary dietitian support. Data can be tricky so the Nutrisense dietitians are trained to work with you to help you understand the results. No matter with dietary lifestyle you follow, a CGM can help you meet your health goals with real time, real life DATA support.
