Stress, Menopause, and Pre-Diabetes? Way Beyond Your Belly Fat

Episode #483 Are you at risk for pre-diabetes? Why your worry about belly fat goes far beyond your bathing suit.

My Guest:

Dr. Beverly Yates is a diabetes expert and author who has over 27-years experience of working with those who struggle with blood sugar issues related to type 2 diabetes and prediabetes, and feel like nothing works for them.

She uses her systems engineering background as an MIT electrical engineer in combination with her naturopathic medicine skills to help people achieve and maintain blood sugar control.

Truly an expert

Dr. Yates is an internationally recognized speaker and expert in the field of diabetes and heart disease. She is a published author of Heart Health for Black Women: A Natural Approach to Healing and Preventing Heart Disease, and co-author of multiple books, including one with Jack Canfield, The Soul of Success, Vol. 2.

By addressing the lifestyle factors that trigger blood sugar spikes, Dr. Yates creates breakthrough changes in the habits that cause blood sugar issues. This allows her clients to finally get off of the blood sugar rollercoaster, have more energy, and create the level of health that lets them live the life of their dreams.

She is the creator of the Yates Protocol, a simple and effective lifestyle-based program, for people who have type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, to lower blood sugar levels, achieve healthy A1C and fasting blood sugar levels, and have more energy to live life the way they want to.

  3. My female listeners are not strangers to tossing and turning, then experiencing cravings – all related to cortisol and blood sugar changes… Do menopause sleep changes that so many women experience (and men – in andropause) put us at risk of type 2 diabetes?
  4. Resistance training as a key exercise strategy in our 50s is necessary Tell me how you advocate for that… or more importantly where do you sit when faced with advising clients to exercise… cardio or strength?
