Are your clients eating too many carbs? 🍞 It may show in surprising ways!

Weight distribution can be a key indicator of insulin sensitivity. Look for shifts from pear to apple shapes as insulin resistance increases. Continue reading for more.

When it comes to understanding our clients’ health and their food habits, particularly carbohydrate intake, one surprising element often goes unnoticed – weight distribution.🍐🍎

The way our body stores fat can give us insights into our insulin sensitivity. Young women with good insulin sensitivity typically gain weight around their hips, resulting in a pear-shaped body. However, as insulin sensitivity decreases due to factors like diet, aging, or other lifestyle habits, this weight distribution can shift. The body moves from a pear shape to an apple shape, with more weight accumulating around the waist.

Here are the top 3 indicators I’ve found that may point towards a decrease in insulin sensitivity in women:

1️⃣ Weight Distribution Shift: As mentioned, a shift from a pear to an apple-shaped body can be a key sign.

2️⃣ Frequent Sugar Cravings: A sudden or increasing craving for sugary or carb-rich foods can indicate insulin resistance.

3️⃣ Increased Hunger: If a client reports feeling hungry soon after a meal or overeating often, it may be due to decreased insulin sensitivity.

The shoulders, waist, and hips ratio is crucial in understanding what type of food might be affecting our clients. We can use this knowledge to guide them towards a healthier lifestyle, better eating habits, and improved insulin sensitivity.

It’s more than just numbers on a scale or a specific body shape—it’s about understanding our bodies and the signals they’re sending us. Listen to your body; it’s the first step towards a healthier you. Stay tuned for more insights! 💖

Three factors that are in your control can have the most significant impact on the longevity and quality of your life, outside of genetics.

  1. Choosing to be active and train possibly the biggest factor. Building capacity in your younger years can create a buffer and slow down the inevitable decline that comes later in life. It can also help you avoid many diseases that can cut life short. Diabetes, heart disease, and cancers are the three biggest killers in westernized civilizations, all of which can have their risk factors reduced through exercise. People who are active are generally happier, suffering less from depression, sleep, and digestive issues.
  2. How you eat also has a significant impact on your health. Food fuels all of life’s activities and can cure, reduce, or help people completely prevent diseases. Food quality and quantity are the two most significant factors when eating. Whether you are concerned with maximizing your performance or just living a happy and healthy life, food is a widely under looked and under utilized piece of the puzzle. The same way you might approach your training and tracking performance in the gym, tracking nutrition is paramount for success.
  3. Sleep is a widely under looked factor for health and performance. Sleep helps the body recover, reduces stress, and is important for hormonal recovery. Overtraining, work stress, and nutrition all can adversely affect the length and quality of sleep. We recommend 8-10 hours of sleep a night to keep you happy healthy and performing well. Looking at the sleep environment, and understand what you need to go into a steep REM state can help improve the quality of sleep. Creating a sleep log, just like a workout or nutrition log, can help you create a roadmap to success. So spend the extra bucks on that expensive mattress because over the long term it is totally WORTH IT!
