We’re going to make PCO as a little less overwhelming and a lot more fun. Hey, Hey. Hey, welcome. Welcome sisters. To another episode of the podcast, we have a great topic today. Fruit is fruit bad for peace.

Jewess is a great conversation to have. And today we’re going to talk about our approach with fruit. We also have quotes from other doctors and their own approach with fruit and a lot more information to help you learn about fruits impact on PSUs and whether is it good or bad? How much to have all that is going to be answered on today’s podcast, right?

That’s right. We’re getting lots of questions about this. And it’s a common, you know, fruit is a common food to reach for when we have cravings. So it’s a great topic. Yeah, exactly. So tune in for this great episode. First, just want to mention we have two mikes back today. I know last week, if you,

if you guys listen and watch the episode, we had to share one mic because one of the mikes had a malfunction. We’re all cozied up together today were separated to two mikes Admitted you miss being cozied up with me. And one mic. You had me sweating halfway through the podcast, the solos, because Tallinn always radiates heat, Less sun. What can I Do to react to?

She’s like a nuclear reactor. That’s a radiating heat all the time. And if you don’t release it, it’s just like, But engineer in you is coming out. Exactly. But all jokes aside, the two mikes are back. So the sound quality should be back to greatness as it always is. I hope. Yeah. Yeah. So yeah. Today we’re going to talk about,

Oh wait, sorry. One more thing. One more thing. It’s kind of related to fruits, but you know, we mentioned last week, we kind of built like a form on our patio, right? Like we have basically on our patio, like fields of lettuce, I’m saying fields, but planters of lettuce, like kale and chard, carrots,

Onions, everything except fruit. Yeah. Everything except fruit, but just the update. We had an infestation caterpillars ravaged ravage through our village of Chis greens, wrap themselves around the step And chomped through our kale. So as you might’ve guessed, I have started a war, basically. Our brought them the reinforcements you might’ve guessed. I have like, I have special organic sprays to help with it.

I’m also like going through all of them every day for like an hour and picking out the caterpillars and throwing them in a Bush, you can go and have, enjoy that Bush instead of my gosh, darn lettuce and kale and all this jazz. So, you know, it’d be a cool, but you know, scissors, I’m African, I’ve got to say I’m a little bit annoyed of this attack.

Deep breaths. Yeah. I just thought it was really funny the way they like grab onto it and chomp, and then they like grow and grow and they’re. Yeah. And they’re so hard to see, like they camouflage perfectly with the branch and the STEM of lettuce. See them impossible to see in it until you like, get closer to like, Oh my God,

how did I even see this now? Like yeah. The Chronicles of our garden. We’ll keep you updated sister. Yes. All right. So moving on to the topic of today’s podcast, again, it’s going to be about fruit and we’re going to go through information that we’ve collected as well as we went and talked to a couple of doctors and we asked them,

what’s your approach with fruit MPS to us. And we have their direct answers that we’re going to read to you on this podcast episode. A quick thing, Tom, why don’t you talk about your personal experience with fruits and fruit and that your piece, us and college and stuff like that? Yeah, well, Really bad cravings in college. I was really struggling with insulin resistance and I didn’t even know what insulin resistance was or how to treat it.

And I remember reaching for fruit as like a great alternative to the cookies and junk food that I was craving. But then I found that I was eating so much fruit. Like every single snack was a fruit and it wasn’t even sufficing. It wasn’t even, you know, getting the craving quenched. Like I just kept eating more and more like a banana here in orange there and grabbing apricot.

I remember like I vividly remember it putting it in Ziploc bags and like putting it in my backpack and just not knowing any better. I thought I F I feel like it’s really put out there. Oh, fruit is healthy. Quote, unquote, healthy. You can eat as much as you want and nothing is going to happen cause it’s super healthy for you.

Yeah. So, but when you’re thinking specifically with PCO S you want to think of what’s going on. We have insulin resistance and we want to treat that insulin resistance. And what I’ve found to be very helpful is to limit fruit just in the beginning of treating insulin resistance the first few months, while you’re like getting the hang of it, limiting it to one piece of fruit a day.

And then as your insulin, resistance gets better and your cravings get better and improve. Then you can start incorporating it because your a metabolic dysfunction that’s going on with your hormones is resolving. So then you can handle it better. Of course, everyone knows what’s best for their bodies. And like one piece of fruit might not be necessary for everyone. So of course,

it’s up to you to decide we’re talking to like a broad audience of women with PCOS. Exactly. And just to be clear, this doesn’t mean that fruit is bad because fruit isn’t bad. Fruit is great for you. It has a lot of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber is just, it’s in moderation, right? Like you want to just make sure you’re eating,

maybe one serving for you so that you’re not impacting your insulin resistance for others. It might be two to three servings eventually, you know, once you’re managing your PCs and your insulin resistance. So it’s really about looking at it from a, it’s not like it’s nothing is black and white scissors. Like anytime we say all, like we recommend this much,

it never means that it’s a bad thing. It’s just, we’re talking about ranges and we’re talking about what are healthy portions and stuff. Yeah. Yeah. And I really believe that women with PCOS, you know, there’s so many different types and so many different recommendations, but everyone wants an answer. Like one answer, not like a broad thing. So when I say one for today,

it’s like, try that one thing, see if it works for you. And if it doesn’t, perhaps, you know, you can eat more, whatever, but people look for specific answers. That’s what I’m saying. So that’s why I say like one fruit a day. Yeah, exactly. That’s right. So getting right into this, let me give some of my tips on how to eat fruit.

And I know that, you know, some of the quotes that we have from these doctors also give some great recommendations, but typically I have three main points about the best ways to eat fruit. First. You want to pair it. So just the other day we paired it. We had prosciutto. Yeah. I remember we were watching the sunset by the beach and we were eating peach peaches and prosciutto.

Yeah. Yeah. It’s a great protein. I didn’t really think I would like it. I didn’t think that the sweetness and like the pressure would go well together, but it actually went really well. Nice together. So my thing go, I’m not going to say I wouldn’t gravitate towards fruit and meat together, but you know, it works. Yeah.

I just don’t think of prosciutto as me. I think of as like a picnic, I feel you and I didn’t get like a sugar rush either when I had that or like a, like a dump of like energy after like half an hour later, which sometimes happens when you’re having too much fruit. See was begging me for cheese though. I forgot to bring it.

How can you not pair a prosciutto with some cheese? I mean, I’m talking about dairy free cheese, lie to me here and give me dairy free cheese. Obviously tine doesn’t eat cheese herself. But you know, I have like a section of the fridge where I have a couple of slices in case, you know, I didn’t even think to get you.

Geez. I’m so sorry. I mean, to be honest, no, because to be honest, I’m like 90% gluten dairy free. The only time I ever have cheese or gluten is with like a sandwich. That’s the only time. And even that, like, I’m starting to be like, maybe I should limit that because I feel great when I don’t have gluten and dairy,

like less back pain, you know, inflammation. The other day I had this really big thick bready sandwich. It was like, it was an everything bagel sandwich. Yeah. And I even told you a little baby, this is like this bread. I don’t like it. It’s too thick and stuff. And my neck has been hurting the last day.

I don’t know if it’s directly related. I’ve heard, you know, inflammation caused by gluten can cause joint pain and stuff. They’ve shown that and research. Yeah. All right. All right. The second tip for eating fruit, choosing low-glycemic index fruits. So this, so glycaemic index is, you know, the way your blood sugar reacts to when you’re eating the fruit.

So how high does it go? And so things like berries, keep your blood sugar low and also like bananas those, make your blood sugar go up. That’s why I put half a banana in my smoothie. So just keeping in mind like the different fruits and where they are on the glycemic index. And we’ll actually get into that because Dr. Paddock one gives us some great tips.

And I mean, Dr. Fiona does, we have several books. We have several doctors to quote here and then let’s see three portion control, portion control. Of course, like I said, one fruit a day. That’s either like a cup of berries or a cup of the fruit, or like a tennis ball size of the fruit. Those are my three tips on how to eat fruit,

Serving recommendation, tennis balls. It’s like, almost like your fist, right? Put your fist together. That’s like one Apple, or like maybe like one and a half peach or like just something Like that fist. Yep. And again, just doesn’t mean that fruit is bad or anything like that. We’re just saying you want to keep a Porsche control,

just like with any other fruit because of the insulin resistance impact this can have on you. And I’ve seen this with patients. Like I had one patient who was having like a fruit filled smoothie in the mornings and she felt lightheaded because it was causing like her blood sugar to crash afterwards. And just by adding protein powder, reducing the fruit amount to like half a banana,

a little bit of berries, she felt so much better. And you know, I saw it firsthand, like with somebody who was extremely insulin resistant, so fruit can have a major impact. Like people have aside tables for breakfast and things like this. And it’s just, I feel like it’s not catering towards S Yeah. And like, I see this a lot too with like maybe somebody who has like a lot of oats or like for breakfast,

they’ll have like this crazy, like old breakfast. Not that not that’s crazy, but like this breakfast with like a bunch of fruit on top of it, like strawberries and like blueberries and like a lot like bananas. And we have the oats that are already yeah, exactly. Like that may be too much because you’re really like one combining all these different types of fruits with already a high carb breakfast.

And if you’re not pairing that with high protein, then really you’re gonna one get a lot of cravings. You’re going to impact your instruments and like, see how you feel An hour or two after you eat. And if you feel really good and energized and find that, okay, maybe you’re not that insulin resistant, but if you crash and you’re fatigued and you’re hungry again and so on,

then you know that, that oatmeal at that fruit, like it’s just too much for you. So, you know, best what’s good for your body. Yes. So shall we launch into some of these quotes? Yeah. So we went and we asked several doctors and we asked them, what is your recommendation when it comes to fruit and piece us?

I can read the first one. Dr. Nirvana. She was our first podcast doctor. Yeah. Yes. I believe episode number 12. She, so Dr. Nirvana is a naturopathic doctor. She resides in orange County. So if you’re near LA orange County, Oh, you can, you can search Dr. Nirvana and you may be able to find her to get help with your piece of us.

Can you remember which episode? It was pretty sure. Number 12. Yeah. Okay. Read it. So Dr. Nevada’s response is one of the things to consider with fruit MPCs is that balancing blood sugar with fiber is key. So the more fiber of fruit has the better. It will be at balancing blood sugar, as well as being lower on the glycemic index.

Insulin resistance is a core root cause of PCs, as you already know. So balancing it via diet is a first step to healing. She continues. I generally recommend no more than one cup of low-glycemic fruits a day at the beginning of the healing process. Then once insulin resistance is no longer an issue. Two to three low glycemic fruits a day is sufficient,

depending on activity levels. She also says fruit does not have to be avoided. If VIP set us, some woman stopped eating fruit because they’ve heard they need to avoid it to balance their blood sugar. But avoiding the sugar found in fruit is in the same as avoiding the sugar found in something like a cookie. That’s a great, perfectly set. That is very true.

It’s not the same sugar as the one found them cookies or the ones found them like other, you know, snacks, fruit, sugar is obviously different. You know, I probably learned this one serving of fruit a day from her. Cause she was my first naturopathic doctor. Yeah. And it worked for you so like, just to recap what she says,

she says, I generally recommend no more than one cup of low-glycemic fruits a day at the beginning of the healing process. And then she says, once insulin resistance is no longer an issue. Two to three low-glycemic fruits a day, depending on activity levels. So again, that basically goes back to what we were recommending earlier in the episode was, you know,

when you’re first starting out one serving a day when you have it all under control two to three servings a day. So Clean fruit has a lot of fiber in it and that, and she mentioned how it, because it has fiber, it’ll slow the absorption into your bloodstream. So yeah, of course we’re pairing it with like prosciutto and Stephan protein like that,

but it naturally has its own fiber too. And that’s great for your blood sugar, especially if you choose low-glycemic fruits. Yeah. All right. The next quote is from Dr. Pedegana. She was actually on our podcast. Oh, I don’t remember this episode number. Oh, come on. Episode number 30, actually. I think you guys have to check,

please Check up on Ray’s episode. Number 30 a was with Dr. Potter Guana and she is actually like an expert on instant resistance. And she wrote a book called the peace plan with coauthored, Dr. Jason Fung. And she’s like an expert on this topic. So Tom, why don’t you read Dr. Paul iguanas response to our question about peace,

us and fruit Dr. Pedagogy. She says my opinion about fruit is simple, but it sometimes requires a lengthy explanation, especially about how fruit can sometimes increase your cravings as opposed to squashing them. Ooh, this goes back to what I mentioned before. She says in the book, there’s a chapter that mentions fruit and on the food list, I encourage berries with meals.

Also remember that avocado is a fruit, a large Berry that I highly encourage. And I always forget that. I always forget that it’s a fruit Imagine. Okay. So she also says fruits contain far less fructose than processed foods contain that contain added sugar fruits also contain vitamins and nutrients along with a large amount of soluble and insoluble fiber in the Pope. The dietary fiber may act as an antidote to the harmful effects of fructose and its Boecking effects preventing overeating.

So wherever possible, restrict your sugars to fresh seasonal fruits, preferably locally grown than now. There’s a lot of great points here along great points. So the first great point is how she says that cravings can sometimes get worse as opposed to getting squashed by eating fruit. And that’s totally what happened to me. Yeah. Cravings are a complicated issue. You can’t just ignore them,

you know? And you, you have to be mindful all the time. The craving means that your body there’s something off like your body is craving something at the wrong time. Because something before, like maybe you had the wrong snack, the wrong a meal that was too much, Too much carbs. Yeah. Yeah. That is really important. Yeah.

Reflect on your day and what you’ve eaten that day. And you know, don’t just say, Oh, whatever, I’ll just have a piece of fruit, like, think about it. You know? Like you said, think about how much Think about it. Not to prevent like when, when we say think about it, we don’t say like, okay,

don’t eat anything. If you’re claiming it, it’s you go ahead and eat. But just think about what we ate last. And maybe what’s something you could have modified to help you not crave as sooner. So maybe you look back, Oh, you know what? I had too much carbs during my breakfast. I had barely any protein, no wonder I’m hungry.

And then, you know, the next morning to add some protein powder and have 40, you had like 35 to 40 grams of protein. And now maybe your cravings are a little bit less. And like basically using that approach with your cravings and any feelings you might be getting, You have to investigate your health and figure out what’s right for you. Yep.

So she also mentions another great point, eating berries with meals. Yeah. That’s kind of cool. Like put it in your salad, you know, have a handful right after your meal, because that will help with the absorption of the sugar and slowing that down. Of course. Yeah. You like had a whole meal, so it’s not going to spike up your blood sugar right away.

I think that’s such a great tip. I never even thought of that. Yeah. And then seeing avocados or fruit. Yeah. Love that. Great tips by Dr. Potter Guana. So as you can tell, she also recommends kind of going to the low-glycemic fruits, like berries and things like that. And if you love avocados, then go for it.

Sisters, avocado. We love okay. Who knew I was putting a Berry in our sandwiches of avocado. And you learn something new everyday? No, it was a Berry. I heard it’s a fruit. Yeah. Anything with a seed I think is a fruit. Let’s not say some weird. Anything with a seed is almost everything has a seed. Doesn’t it?

No Kale doesn’t have a seed in it. You know what I’m saying? So like peaches, it has a seed in the middle. It’s a fruit. Okay. Well, we’re going to have to Google this later. Well, I’m not specific on the seed and fruit dilemma here. We’re having a conversation about this when I was younger, like learning about this and being mind blown.

Wow. Okay. Let’s move on to the next doctor, Dr. Fiona. Now I pulled her a quote from her book. Eight steps to reverse your peace. Yeah. It’s a great book. If you haven’t read it, it’s something I read from Tom’s recommendation to her to help me learn about peace, jurists and such, but it’s a great book.

We highly recommend it. Eight steps to reverse your PCs. Dr. Fiona is the author of the book. And this is the, how do you say excerpt excerpt, excerpt, excerpt from, Do you want to read it or should I okay. I’ll read it. I’m sorry. Okay. Fruit. She says fruit is an excellent source of fiber vitamins and minerals,

and are one of the main sources of carbs that should be included in a diet for us. They are also a healthy option. You can take quickly on the goal as fruits to contain significant amounts of natural sugars. It’s best to choose a lowest sugar fruits as a general rule. Other fruits can also be enjoyed if the quantities are kept in check low sugar,

fruits include avocado tomato, papaya berries, and then she says medium sugar fruits include cantaloupe, apricots, pineapple, and high sugar. Fruits are cherries, mango dates and bananas. So great tips by Dr. Fiona she’s. She also mentioned about, you know, obviously the, the great benefits of fruit, but also the, how, you know, fruits to have sugar.

And you want to be able to consume fruits that are lower in sugar. Exactly. She also mentions that it should be the main source of carbs. All right, wait, did she say, should be, she says, vitamins are one of the main sources of carbs that should be included in a diet with PCs. Like don’t avoid them. And I think this is great advice because actually,

you know, it’s, it’s best to steer towards naturally gluten-free carbs. Of course. And oftentimes if you have gut issues, eating grains that are gluten-free or not gluten-free can harm your gut and irritate it. So if you’re having stomach issues and a lot of women with PSUs have this issue, eating things like potatoes, or getting your carbs from fruits could be much easier on your stomach.

So I think that that’s what she’s trying to say here. When she says that it’s like a great source of carbs for women with PCOS, you know, you want to maintain your gut health. So choosing naturally gluten-free non-grain options are great. If you have stomach issues. Yes. And just to repeat the fruits in case, I’m sure the sisters are like,

well, what were the fruits? You mentioned the low sugar fruits are avocado tomato, papaya berries, the medium sugar fruits are cantaloupe, apricots pineapples, and then high sugar fruits that Dr. Fenner mentions are cherries, mangoes dates, bananas. So like, for example, if you’re gonna have a banana, definitely have half a banana in your, with your smoothie or something,

since it’s high in sugar like that, right. You want to be aware of this because you know, when you’re like grabbing a bunch of you, now, you can think like, which one’s better for me if you want. But if it’s too restrictive, once again, like do what you feel like doing, you don’t want to be on this like super restrictive,

miserable diet. If you just want some cherries, you know? Alrighty. Our next doctor that we asked this question to was Dr. Semina Mita. She was also on our podcast. Okay. This one, I don’t remember the podcast episode number, but I’m just going to guess number 18. That’s my guess. I’m probably wrong, but I’m going to guess number 18.

But anyways, Dr. Sumina meta her response to our question was Tom, you want to treat this one? Okay. She says, I typically recommend patients stick to berries for fruit, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries. We know berries do not spike insulin or glucose. If you compare berries versus bananas on the insulin index, we see that one cup of berries is two points versus one medium banana,

which is around 25 points. That means that our insulin will rise much more. If we have something like a banana versus a cup of berries, since fruits get broken down to sugar, AKA glucose, I consider it a carb and should always be paired with a healthy fat and protein. Interesting, very interesting. And you know, reading this, I’m starting to think that people who say pizzas or I’m sorry,

people who say fruit is not bad for peace shows, that’s a dangerous generalization because they’re not taking into effect the different, you know, the insulin index compared with berries versus banana. And like when you say that fruit is not bad for PCs, which it’s not bad for peace shoes, but you need to explain, you need to like say that, okay,

food is in bed. However, some fruits will spike your insulin index a lot more than other fruits and cause issues with your insulin resistance. And then you’re going to get the opposite results that you’re looking for. So Dr. Sumina says the perfect comparison of a banana and a barrier here. She’s very well versed on the insulin index. I remember her mentioning this in the podcast episode as well.

She’s very, well-versed on the insulin index because it’s so important to look at that. And in my opinion, it’s even more important than the glycemic index, because you really want to see how you’re having an insulin response to something. The more insulin that you have in your bloodstream, the more insulin resistance that your cells are going to experience by, after being bombarded with all that insulin.

So once again, like the banana 25 points on the insulin index, and Barry’s two points on the insulin index, that’s a huge difference. And it’s so important to be knowledgeable about this so that when you make choices of what you’re going to eat, you know exactly what’s going on with your body when you make these choices. Exactly are well-informed audience. Yeah.

That’s right. So this is like the whole point is to help you be informed about like specific topics like fruit, you know, it’s a very common conversation in the peace community. Just like anything else we want, you had the right proper knowledge sometimes, you know, like on Instagram we try to explain, but obviously Instagram is just like a post,

right? You can’t get done until you like the details. It’s like, that’s where we try to help explain the details here on this podcast to keep you informed. So now hopefully from this, you’ve learned that one fruit isn’t bad for, to us, but I need to make sure I’m eating the right sort of fruits and like making sure that my servings are right for me and my body.

Yeah. And my insulin levels. And now, from now on, I’m going to eat berries with them. Yeah. Yeah. Such a weird combination, but I’m into it. It’s like, imagine you eat the berries right after eat like a ribeye or something with French fries, with friends. They’re like, what are you doing? Yeah. Like you take out the berries at the end.

Or like, if you’re having like a, if we’re having like a nice like seafood extravaganza and then at the end of the here’s the berries take it out of my purse. It could work, could work. Okay. So now we’re going to go on to DMS. So on Instagram Tallinn, as the sisters asked, all of you, how many servings of fruit do you usually eat in a date?

And then we got all your responses and we’re going to read them on episode right now. Yes. I did a little sticker question because I just wanted to know what people are doing out there. And what’s like, what do you guys feel good with? So many sisters replied with one serving of fruit or two servings of fruit. And some people replied with what fruits.

They like to eat oranges and berries. But mainly the responses were one to two servings a day. So it sounds like people are ill. Someone even said, half has half a piece of fruit a day, you know, just depending on your level of insulin resistance and how you feel. Yeah. Very important to consider like your body. What, what levels of servings is right for you.

And that’s just through trial and error, trial and error, just like with any other food, you know, trial and error. See what’s working for you. See, what’s not working for you for a lot of sisters. They find one to two servings is great. For some, it might be less for something might be more. Yeah. I mean,

honestly like 90% are saying one to two servings. So very cool to know what’s happening out there in the PCLs community. Yes. Okay. So I guess that’s like a, we’re going to move on to the PCO as hotline. We’re gonna, we’re gonna play a voicemail and answer the question, but that basically explains our point of view of PCs and fruit.

Well as like four different doctors. Yes. As well as the opinion of four, very well credentialed doctors and have interviewed who we have interviewed three out of four, and we hope that scissors you’re able to take away that one fruit isn’t bad for PCs too, that there are the right portions, right. Serving sizes for everybody. And three, just do what’s best for you.

I just, I had to say a third point. Just bring it all together. Tie it in babe Titan. But yes. Bring ring snaps. The phone is ringing. Let me pick it up. Bob, you guys know who Bob is by the way. I talk about Bob all the time. When I pick up this phone, basically Bob was my imagined imaginary friend who I have arguments arguments with all the time,

live on the Instagram to keep you guys entertained today. We did an Instagram live and see it acted like the Bob Bay. And he’s like, sorry, I haven’t called in a while. We’ve been upset at each other. I yelled at you Literally creating fake relationships for entertainment. I hope I’m not going crazy. Yeah. Okay. Alrighty. Let’s play.

Oh, sister who left the voicemail on our hotline hotline hotline. I have a quick question. When you talk about overflow in particular, I know my own impulse and I think it’s one more ingredient as well. Now, taking any random in also, what do you think is like, is it, is it better to just stick overspill or does it actually make a difference to perhaps take like just a generic brand as well of any kind?

Is there something like that’s actually specifically in overspill that makes it better than others and it’d be really helpful. Thank you. Question sister. So many times we recommend Avast natal as a great in our supplement, which can work just as effectively as Metformin. So maybe the question is like, why Avastin hot? Right, right. Oh, Vasa tall has this special combination of myo and de Cairo Manasseh tall.

It’s a 40 to one ratio that mimics the ratio that should be in ourselves. And that’s why it is so effective. And it has shown to be so much more effective than just taking in knots and tall alone. So a lot of our sisters who are taking over basketball specifically are seeing great results within like the three month period of taking it. Cause it comes in like a three month supply.

And you know, the reason why we love it so much is because it is the exact combination that’s found in our bodies and that improves our cells, insulin resistance. When you have that proper combination, that insulin sensitivity improves. So that’s why we recommend versus just plain an osteotome. Absolutely. And research actually does show that in our subtle supplements work just as effectively as Metformin.

So, which is why we’d like, say if you’re having insulin resistance, you’re having cravings before going straight to Metformin, you know, of acetone, which is an all-star supplement can be a great natural option, Right. Something to consider and talk to your doctor about. Yeah. And also on the benefits of, of acetone over other in all-star supplements is that over acetone comes in a three months supply.

So because it comes originally in a three-month supply, it’s a lot cheaper because usually it takes about three months to balance your hormones and insulin resistance with an also all supplements. So when you get in a three months supply, you’re actually getting a cheaper because other supplements, they usually sell it in a one month supply. And if you do that three times,

the total price almost, almost always is more than the one-time purchase. Especially when you consider we have a 15% off discount code, PRC code. If you go into the podcast description, you’ll see that that’s right. And yeah. And honestly, like, I feel like we should, because we’re very transparent. We’re always very supportive of the piece to as community.

And as a very transparent podcast, I do want to mention that Avastin is a sponsor of the podcast. Many of you have heard their advertisement in the beginning of the podcast and other episodes, but honestly they are the brand that Tallinn started with years ago before ever being sponsored on the podcast. Like Tanya was taking this for years. She recommended to her own sister who just got off of birth control and was having insulin resistance and a whole lot of other issues.

She basically takes her soap every single day. So anytime we have like, just, I always mentioned this, but it’s good to always say, anytime we like recommend a supplement or we have advertise an ad in the podcast, it something we truly believe in. And we did way before we got sponsored By them. Exactly. Like even with the CBD,

I was thinking that CBD, pure spectrum brand for the last two years, two and a half years before we got married before we got married and before the sponsorship happens. Exactly. So I just like to put that disclaimer in and keep it completely transparent because we always, yeah, we love you. And we only recommend supplements that we truly believe in and that we think,

you know, helped us or help Tallinn and her own experience and we’ll help others. Exactly. Yes. Moving on to the win. Yay. Plural. Because I chose three again, because we have so many and three isn’t even all of them. So I just go to the most recent school. So if you don’t know, every week on the podcast,

we read a win of the week, which is a sister who’s managing her piece. She was, and who’s losing weight and basically got everything under control. And this week we have three winners. Yeah. Of course. Or starting, or has taken a step. Anything really? It’s not all about, you know, getting to that one goal or losing weight or anything.

It’s just about taking the first steps, taking the right direction in your peace journey. That’s right. So the first, when she goes, Telene exclamation point exclamation point exclamation point. You know, people are usually skeptical before they begin something. I was one of those people who thought nothing would work during this past summer, I dieted and worked out three times a day.

I would run in the mornings, then come home to, to do Zumba for an hour. And then I would do some weight training and kickboxing and nothing changed. It’s been only one week of going gluten and dairy free and I’m already down five pounds. Thank you. I really mean it. Amazing, great job sister. I mean, especially for those people who,

who are skeptical about doing anything because they just feel nothing will work. And there’s a great story right here is like, if you’re feeling that way, trust us sisters, there is something that can work for you. There is a step you can take to feel better immediately. So don’t, don’t feel down on yourself. Exactly. Seriously. So, and then the second one,

babe, do you want to read this by V Yeah. The previous one didn’t have a name, but yeah, this sister didn’t have it in the screenshot. Yeah. Her name is Venetia. She says, hi, Tallinn. Just wanted to say thank you for all your advice. I was already dairy-free but when gluten-free for the last two weeks and I have been taking a vest off for a week and I cannot believe she says in capital letters,

I cannot believe I already lost five pounds with the same amount of moderate exercise as before. That’s awesome. Great job. Anisha disclose to show your diet and lifestyle can be the biggest factors, Huge factors in lowering your insulin levels and just treating the mood of the yeah. Yeah. I mute you tweak. One thing can have a huge impact. Okay.

The third one last, but not least Chesley 13. I’m down nine pounds over about three weeks. The gluten and dairy free life you guys talk about has made me feel so much better. Currently detoxing from caffeine and learning to love decaf, green tea. That’s awesome. Great job. Chessy decaf. Green tea. So good for your testosterone levels. Insulin resistance.

Get that going. Well, another diet and lifestyle tweak big impact’s huge Sisters. We hope you enjoyed this episode. Yes. This is a great episode. Great for learning about fruit.
