My wife is hypoglycemic. Any special considerations to adapting to plant based? Any sugar control issues that need to be addressed?

— Tom Carringer


Well, beautifully all of these things normalize when you're eating a whole food plant-based diet. So if you're hypoglycemic, you know, I don't know what her diet is like now, but if she's adjusting and she's getting rid of processed foods and she's getting rid of animal products by default. She's gonna end up having a healthier more normalized more stable blood sugar where you know, you know, when you're not consuming those Foods, you're just improving the insulin response, you're gonna improve all of that. It's those processed foods and it's just a poor diet overall that perpetuates all sorts of blood sugar cardio metabolic metabolic issues. And so I just recommend, you know, staying away from the process foods and going towards like I keep saying, I guess that's the theme of today is really sticking to the whole fiber-filled plant food. So that just that my list vegetables fruits whole grains legumes nuts seeds or some spices and any combin And thereof and if you want to look at how to prioritize these Foods I came up with something called the six daily threes. Patrick one more for you on my website. It's if you just Google or if you look on my website plant-based for six daily threes. I broke it up into ways to prioritize. So yes, you could have any combination of those foods, but I want to make sure everyone's getting their leafy greens one one at least three servings a day. So three six to three three servings of leafy Green Street serving three servings up legumes, please servings of nuts and sees three servings of other vegetables three servings of fruits, and the other one is exercise three doses of exercise, so, That's a way to prioritize what you're eating. So leafy green vegetables fruits making sure you're getting all of those really Health promoting Foods in your diet on a daily basis.
