Americans are facing a mental health crisis. Nearly one in five people suffer from a diagnosis every year.

Researchers are turning to possible correlations between the mind and body—including #metabolichealth.
Metabolic health has a significant effect on both #addiction and mental health.

Not only does being metabolically healthy reduce the risk of developing addictions, but evidence suggests it can improve mental health markers as well.
Many mental health disorders are correlated to the altered metabolism of glucose. Switching to a #ketogenic diet may be helpful.

Improved metabolic health also has clinical evidence for prevention, as schizophrenia and bipolar disorders may increase metabolic health factors.

So you’re interested in #metabolic health and can see the benefits of making a change, but you're not sure where to begin your journey.

I suggest a two-step approach: researching for general awareness, then seeking certified coaching.
2/ The most basic definition of #metabolichealth is the creation and management of energy. But only 12% of Americans fall into that category. 88% are metabolically unhealthy.

Planning and direction are critical to future success, which is where
3/ Metabolic coaches work in an industry related to #healthcare, and have spent years refining their approach to wellness.

71% of Americans say they’re in excellent health.

Only 12% actually are.

For millions of people, “getting healthier” is about green smoothies and viral wellness trends.

But that neglects something critically important: metabolic health.
#MetabolicHealth is a measure of how your body processes and uses energy.
It tracks how well your body uses food to nourish its cells and how efficiently it stores energy for future use.

There are 5 key indicators:
1️⃣Central Obesity
Researchers increasingly find correlations between lagging metabolisms and physical health, mental clarity, and emotional stress — none of which can be fixed by green smoothies or the latest wellness fad.

Poor metabolic health sets off a domino effect on our health.

Blind faith in the dietary guidelines can literally kill you.
Research has found that 95% of the Dietary Guidelines of Americans advisory committee has conflicts of interest (COI) with food brands, including Kellogg’s, Dannon and General Mills.
Here’s how to protect yourself:
These conflicts haven’t been disclosed to the public.
Now we know that 60% of documented COI is related to funding or board membership.
No wonder that 88% of Americans are metabolically unhealthy and heart disease is behind 25% of all US deaths.
The single responsibility of the Dietary Guidelines of Americans committee is to provide unbiased, ethical #NutritionalAdvice.

America’s relationship with work is unhealthy and unsustainable.
We work long hours and report some of the highest levels of job stress in the world.
We spend more on #healthcare than any other nation, but our employees are sicker than those in other high-income nations.
Work is taking a toll on our #MetabolicHealth.

And not only is this bad for our longevity — it's bad for business too.

Poor health is associated with more than $575 billion in lost potential, and 1.5 billion days of missed productivity for US businesses.
Science shows a clear link between job stress and #MetabolicSyndrome, which may include:

1️⃣ Increased weight gain
2️⃣ High blood sugar
3️⃣ Hypertension
4️⃣ Heightened cholesterol
5️⃣ Abnormal triglycerides
