The last decade has seen a shift in society’s perception around sugar and health, with far more people concerned about the content of their food. This has spawned a wealth of scientific research, which has largely remained inaccessible to the average person. Today’s guest is changing this with her new book, Glucose Revolution. Jessie Inchauspé is a biochemist and author who also created the Glucose Goddess Instagram page, where she translates the latest science on blood sugar into easy tips for everyone. She joins us today to talk about what it took to write Glucose Revolution and all the behind-the-scenes nitty-gritty. We discover how her progress diary inspired the introduction to Glucose Revolution, and how the experience of breaking her back when she was 19 shaped her. Hear what the four classic symptoms are of being disconnected from your body (hunger, cravings, sleepiness, and poor energy levels), and how three crazy events in rapid succession convinced her it was time to write the book. Jessie shares the process of writing the book, from where she started (a lot of sticky notes!) to her gratitude to the editors and the magic that they work. You’ll also find out how writing has clarified Jessie’s thinking and improved her science, as well as how her Instagram persona has changed over the last year. Tune in to learn where Jessie plans on going from here, what to expect from the book, who should read it (everyone!), and so much more!
