Tips For Healthy Living From The Webinar

  1. EAT FIRST…eat then move. Give your body the fuel it needs.
  2. CARBS! Your body does need carbohydrates. You need 6 carbs per hour for your brain to work best. (Teresa will explain the science of this)
  3. CAR ANALOGY. If you put too much gas (sugar) into your “tank” it overflows and spills into the body, which can’t absorb it and malfunctions.
  4. KNOW BEFORE YOU GO. Check your glucose to see if it’s high or low. Know what’s happening in your body. Check every morning and 2 hours after a big meal.
  5. 3 F’s. Fresh. Fun. Fast. (Curtis will explain how to prepare a delicious and healthy meal in 30 minutes or less that everyone can do!)
