Food Rx: Grilled Chicken and Blueberry Salad
What I often tell my clients who have blood sugar issues is that they are, in fact, starving on cellular, structural, and hormonal levels. Sometimes they look at me as if I'm crazy. Yet excess body weight piles on easily in the presence of blood sugar issues and is actually a symptom of starvation. When you cannot access the fuel that is designed to be delivered to your cells, biochemically you are experiencing famine.
