We love a lower carbohydrate diet - low carb equal low sugar and low sugar is very important for overall health. With some patients we even experiment with a completely grain free diet! One of the most often asked questions when we put someone on a grain free diet (after “What am I going to eat for breakfast?”) is “Where will my fiber come from? Should I take a supplement?”
This question is asked often in the Eleven Eleven office, “Is it ok to eat the whole egg - whites and yolk?” And our answer is YES! The yolk and the white of the egg have different properties and when eaten together they are protein and nutrient rich powerhouses!
We all know we need to drink water, this is not a new health tip! But with most everyone’s schedule and life turned upside down over the last 6 months, we need to re-up on our daily habits. Drinking water isn’t as easy with a mask on, and while you might have kept a full pitcher of water at your desk pre-pandemic, what are you doing now?
Have you been experiencing symptoms that you just can’t figure out? Do you feel bloated and inflamed, or maybe you have a skin issue or joint pain that doesn't make any sense?
