Whilst grainbrain.ch is getting her new looks, I thought I’d focus a little on my favourite social media platform, Facebook.
Who do I follow on Facebook?
The answer here is: tons. I follow tons of people, companies, news sites, brands (and yes, even Sauna, being true to my Finnish roots!).
Exclusively for you, however, I’ve listed my top 10 health pages I follow. Some of these you may already be familiar with, while others are new to you.
1. Diet Doctor
Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt is one of the most outstanding medical professionals to recommend a lowcarb lifestyle, in my opinion. The information he posts is current, relevant and very educational. He also understands diabetes well, and posts about every big study that is made. Check out the Facebook page here.
2. Dr. Mark Hyman
Dr. Hyman is a functional medicine practitioner, who is doing a fantastic job with spreading news about medicine and nutrition. He also gets it with diabetes, and has great resources and tips. Look here!
3. Cereal Killers Movie
If you haven’t seen this documentary yet – do it (right after finishing reading this blog post)! This page contains very little promotion for the movie. Instead this guy shares very useful, thoughtful and educational posts. It’s a keeper!
4. Dr. David Perlmutter
Dr. Perlmutter is the author of the (very well named!) book Grain Brain. Luckily we share very many opinions. 🙂 He’s also about to release a cook book. Anyway, back to the Facebooking, he has some very interesting articles that make you think twice about what you’ve been doing all your life. Check it out for yourself here.
“NaturalNews.com is an independent news resource that covers the natural health and wellness topics that empower individuals to make positive changes in their personal health. NaturalNews offers uncensored news that allows for healthier consumer choices via informed skepticism.” That really says it all – check it out here.
6. Food Babe
Food Babe, or Vani Hari, has become the leading expert in finding out what the food we eat is made of, what’s hiding in it, and what are potentially lethal ingredients. Her investigations go much deeper into the food production industry than any of them would like. She’s a true star in finding out the truth. Have a look for yourself here.
7. Dr. Lissa Rankin
Dr. Rankin wrote one of my favourite health books to date, Mind Over Medicine. I believe all health care professionals should have read her book at least once. Her FB page reflects much of her thinking in the book – health as holistic, functional medicine. Get inspired here.
8. Mind Body Green
MBG is a fantastic site that collects the best of the best in terms of health, well being, nutrition, exercise, meditation, relationships… Usually shorter articles that are easy to understand. I barely go onto their website, as they deliver all the goodies right to my FB newsfeed. Find their great articles here.
9. I Quit Sugar
Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar 8 week program is hugely popular to, eh, quit sugar. The FB page is filled with great recipes (that you can easily modify to your needs), tips, ideas and announcements. Love it as much as I do here.
10. Kris Carr
Kris Carr, the undoubtable queen of green juicing, always posts really great information, recipes and motivation on her Facebook site. This woman is truly an inspiration, and I suggest you check her out here.
11. Gabby Bernstein
One of my spiritual guides, Gabby Bernstein, has probably been given a prize for “Most Active FB Page”. It’s truly astonishing how much great advice, affirmations, meditations, thoughts and pictures this modern guru posts. Get a huge dose of inspiration here.
Mirkka at SwissHealthCoach recently did an amazing myth-busting series on the truth about our food. Check her out!
13. Type 1 Diabetes Memes
This page, run by type 1’s for type 1’s post hilarious photos, with a huge “omg that’s me, every time”-factor. Their aim is to make you augh, and to have a positive outlook on living with Type 1 Diabetes. Get a good laugh right here!
Borrowed from the Type 1 Diabetes Meme Fb page!
Ok, fine, that was a bit more than 10, but I just couldn’t leave any of them out! All of these have contributed so much toward my health and getting more confident in my self care.
I’d love to know who YOU follow? Anyone I’ve missed, anyone you don’t-understand-how-I-can-live-without that I should be following? Please let me know in the comments, there’s always space for more people to be inspired by!
