Increasing Insulin Sensitivity Through Nutrition and Exercise with Diana Licalzi and Jose Tejero

July 5, 2022

In this week’s episode, I'm doing something a little outside the box here because I’m joined by the co-founders of Reversing T2D, Diana Licalzi Maldonado and Jose Tejero. Diana and Jose specialize in type two diabetes and pre-diabetes. Over the past year, we've built such an organic relationship over the similarities between managing type one and managing type two. 

Diana is a Registered Dietician and Certified Diabetes Educator with a Masters in Nutrition. Jose is an Exercise Physiologist with a degree in Exercise Science. This is a great episode to send to any family or friends who are pre-diabetic or type two, and a great episode if you are type one and trying to work on increasing your insulin sensitivity. 

In this episode we discuss… 

  • How insulin resistance plays a role in your blood sugar control
  • How to know if you're insulin resistant
  • Things that you can do to improve your insulin sensitivity
  • The biggest misconceptions around nutrition and exercise for better blood, sugar management 
  • Weight, gut health, plant-based eating and so much more

If you are struggling to lower your A1C and improve your blood sugar control in a sustainable way, Jose, Diana and myself are teaming up to put on a FREE masterclass for people with type one diabetes that you are not going to want to miss! If you got a lot out of this episode and want to learn more about increasing your insulin sensitivity for a lower A1C, this class is for you. Register for free HERE.
