Health Tips, Healthy Habits
What do you usually eat for breakfast? Do you like to eat bread, toasts, bagels, muffins, pop-tarts, pancakes, waffles or commercial breakfast cereals?
Do you find yourself suddenly tired and hungry, and searching for a snack in the middle of the morning, way before your lunch break?
Your mood may change at this time. Maybe you feel anxious, irritated or angry (“hangry”).
All of these are symptoms of a sugar crash, and that’s because you have eaten mainly refined carbohydrates for breakfast, which causes your insulin secretion to shoot up and drop quickly not long afterwards.
This kind of sugar crash, if repeated over a long period of time, wrecks havoc to our metabolism and could lead to insulin resistance, which is a leading factor behind developing Type 2 Diabetes and other metabolic diseases.
If you can relate to the above symptoms of a sugar crash and wonder what you should have for breakfast, please check out my video below: http://bit.ly/erc_video_bf_sugarcrash
One of my suggestions for a quick-and-easy way to enjoy a well-balanced breakfast is to drink a protein smoothie with fruits, vegetables, blood type-specific protein powder and good fats. You can download my “Eat Right Chef Protein Smoothie” recipe here: http://bit.ly/eatrightchef_smoothie

Diabetes runs in my mother’s side of the family, so I am very aware of the possibility that I might get it too. Already in my 20s, I experienced hypoglycemia and frequently felt light-headed and dizzy when I hit blood sugar lows. I wasn’t aware at that time that hypoclycemia was a precursor to Type 2 Diabetes.
Luckily I started eating right according to the Blood Type Diet and SWAMI in my mid-30s and I am confident that I’ll be able to prevent it. In fact, it is possible to reverse diabetes even if you have it.
Recently, my mother’s diabetic conditions had worsened and became highly unstable, often reaching 170-200mg/dL even when fasting. Working with her to tweak her meals, exercise and sleep regime, her blood sugar level dropped drastically so that it hovers around 110-120mg/dL before meal. This took place within a two-week window and her level has stabilized since. She had been skeptical of eating according to her blood type and resisted properly following it for two years since I introduced it to her. Finally she is following my instructions to a tee (and of course, eating what I cook for her sometimes) and is surprised to see the benefits. Most important of all, she realizes that she doesn’t have to rely on drugs the rest of her life and is motivated to continue healing her body by food and lifestyle changes.
Check out the video below to find out how I guided her to turn her diabetic conditions around:
