200|The Long-Term Solution to Managing Your Blood Sugar and Energy Levels with Clinical Nutritionist and Medical Director Alessandro Ferretti

Remove the Guesswork: Health, Fitness and Wellbeing for Busy Professionals

What is the impact of blood glucose on your health and how do you manage it? Clinical Nutritionist and Medical Director Alessandro Ferretti shares his insights on the subject based on his research. Visit https://www.bodyshotperformance.com/topic/podcasts/ for the complete show notes of every podcast episode. Topics Discussed in this Episode: What set Alessandro on the path of focusing his research on blood glucose Blood glucose and its relevance for weight management and longevity The impact of sleep and stress on blood glucose Key Takeaways: Different things in people's lifestyles affect their blood sugar levels. If you can't get your hands on an ongoing glucose monitoring system, you can measure the two cardinals: first thing in the morning and just before retiring. Poor sleep dramatically upsets fasting glucose. There's no exercise nor any short-term intervention to get your blood glucose down. Stress can keep your glucose levels elevated for quite some time. Action Steps: Check your fasting glucose at least a couple of times a week. Alessandro said: "I can tell you what are the 10 most common factors affecting the fasting glucose... [however] I personally believe that people may get great benefit in testing that." "You cannot outrun your rest, you just can't." If you're interested in finding out what your health IQ is, take the Health IQ test to find out, and get a free 39-page report built around our six signals, which are sleep, mental health, energy, body composition, digestion, and fitness.

#59 Personalising Your Health with Alessandro Ferretti

Feel Better, Live More with Dr Rangan Chatterjee

We are all bombarded by stress throughout our daily lives and it comes in many different forms, but how do we actually know what impact that stress is having on our bodies? One of the key messages from today’s conversation is a reminder of how unique we all are. My guest on this week’s episode is nutritionist and researcher, Alessandro Ferretti, who has spent years researching the effects of various stressors on the body by meticulously monitoring the heart rate variability (HRV) and blood sugar levels of both his clients and himself. He shares the fascinating findings of his research and explains that what causes stress on our bodies can be different for different individuals - one man’s medicine really can be another man’s poison - and the way we perceive an event is key. We also discuss the effect of shift work on our bodies, how type 2 diabetes is not just a dietary problem, how the wrong timing of meals can act as a significant stressor on the body and the impact of caffeine and insufficient sleep. Finally, he gives some brilliant tips for optimising your health. This is a really informative conversation – I hope you enjoy it!Show notes available at drchatterjee.com/alessandro Follow me on instagram.com/drchatterjee/Follow me on facebook.com/DrChatterjee/Follow me on twitter.com/drchatterjeeukDISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
