QUEST BAR VS CLIFF BAR

QUESTCLIFF.jpg

Quest bar beats out the Cliff Bar on one of the most vital levels to track, your blood glucose (i.e., blood sugar) levels. Blood glucose is important to avoid spiking. Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM) are a new technology that allows people to track, customize and optimize their diets for steady glucose levels. Continuous Glucose Monitors can be expensive at $200 a month. The other way to monitor blood glucose is to use Keto-Mojo, a finger prick, and a drop of blood to track and monitor glucose. (ORDER BELOW)


Blood sugar levels affect everything from your mood to your weight, and yet most of us are flying blind every time we eat. Everyone knows that piece of cake is probably not going to make you feel great, but what about the Quest bar or the Cliff Bar? I know how easy it is to buy one of these popular bars. Bars help us when we feel “hangry”.


I have used both Keto-Mojo and a CGM to monitor my blood glucose. I’ve learned to avoid foods that do two things to me. One, avoid excessive blood sugar spikes. These are dangerous and have many dire consequences in both the short term and long term. If you’ve ever dealt with brain fog, fatigue, anxiety, stress, irritability, mood swings, weight gain, depression, compromised immune system, and general issues with energy (i.e. all of us) then you’ve experienced the consequences of poor blood glucose control.


Two, I avoid foods that cause my stomach to bloat after eating them. I am surprised how few people pause to ask, “How do I feel after eating certain foods?” I found I can tolerate the Standard Process Cocoa Crisp bars (ORDER BELOW) – no blood sugar spikes and no bloating. 


Look at the snack bar ingredients. It may say “Sweetened with” Allulose, Erythritol or Stevia. These ingredients are sugar alcohols and have risen in popularity because they are a low-calorie way the manufacturer can sweeten protein bars; however, in some people, sugar alcohols can cause gastrointestinal distress and result in stomach upset especially bloating. 

 

A supplement to help control insulin & glucose levels is Metagenics UltraGlycemX shake powder. (ORDER BELOW) It contains cinnamon, EGCG, EPA/DHA, RIAA and acacia, which also help regulate blood sugar.

There are certain foods that can spike your glucose and you need to know these so you can avoid these. Here’s a starter list of nuts and seeds, and if you have a Keto-Mojo kit to test your blood sugar, see how you respond. Even if you can’t measure your response, this is an excellent list to build your individual diet around. These are a great way to add fat, protein, and micronutrients to any meal or to have as a healthy snack. 


  • Chia seeds
  • Flaxseed
  • Pumpkin seeds 
  • Sesame seeds
  • Almonds
  • Brazil nuts
  • Cashews
  • Hazelnut
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Pine nuts
  • Pecans

Dr. Tucker's Advice

WHAT SEPARATES DR. JEFFREY TUCKER FROM OTHER CHIROPRACTORS

“I’m a chiropractor, with specialties in sports medicine/physical rehabilitation, using pain relief and regenerative modalities and technology, side by side with ‘good nutrition’ planning, and longevity oriented. I am the modern wholistic health practitioner. Many are calling this Biohacking to achieve health and longevity”.

- Dr. Jeffrey Tucker

In my practice, I deal with nagging issues such as:

  • Chronic pain
  • Stiff & tight muscles
  • Unresolved inflammation – you feel sore & achy
  • Scar tissue and adhesions that can cause muscle & joint problems
  • Not being able to drop that last 10-20 pounds – I work with people that have done everything short of outright starvation
  • High blood glucose readings
  • Disturbed sleep that causes fatigue & tiredness


If you have tried other treatments or the sheen has worn off a bit of what you have been doing, it’s time for another approach. If you or someone you know independently realize there is simply a piece of your overall health picture that is still missing then you may want to try the latest therapy approaches – these include shockwave, TECAR, HEIT, laser light, and fat loss. Even doctors don’t like to realize that perhaps there was simply a piece of the overall picture that is still missing. Make it okay to get a second or third opinion.


Biohacking is all about learning to think for yourself and not always relying on others to fix you or to substitute their authority for your own.

Dr. Tucker's Tips For Working Out 

Check back each newsletter to get more exercise and stretching tips!

1. Five out of 7 days a week I commit to a very efficient 30-40 minutes of exercise session. The other two days a week I do flexibility work like yoga and band work. I like free weight & kettlebell lifts, and I mix in an exercise that takes away my breath (kettlebell swings, kettlebell snatches, jumping jacks, or even run-in-place or an actual 25-yard sprint) between sets of free weightlifting such as the deadlift, squat, or overhead press to fire up my cardio and nervous system. 

2. utilize slow and deliberate movements to feel my technique. For example, start pull-ups from a complete hang, contract the lats and pull yourself up to the top without exploding or using momentum. Hold the top position for a second then slowly lower back to the starting position keeping tension on the lats and biceps. If I do an exercise on my feet, I connect my feet to the floor, check my posture and then lift. 


3. Do the hardest and most productive exercises at the beginning of each workout. For example, prioritize squats and deadlifts first as they are the most productive and energy intensive. Do bicep and triceps at the end of the workout.
