Learn how to lower blood sugar naturally in this interview with Molly Downey. She’s a registered dietician who specializes in glucose control, metabolism, and weight loss. She currently works as a dietitian at Nutrisense, a health technology company which leverages continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) - as a way to optimize diet, health, and overall well being.

You may have believed that it doesn’t matter when you eat or what you eat, as long as you stay under your calories or points in a day. 

That is not based on science. Weight loss is about hormones. Specifically, it’s about insulin. And you’re going to learn today how the type, amount, and timing of foods we eat impacts blood glucose.
