Lisa Jacobsen is a Functional Nutrition Practitioner and the founder of The Global Be Well for Good Formula, who helps business owners fix their fatigue so that they can be more productive in their business and still have a personal life.
Her work is inspired by her personal journey: after running a large international group within a Fortune 100 company for fifteen years and two small businesses with her husband, Lisa’s career soared while her health tanked. When she couldn’t find answers through conventional medicine, she began to explore the functional nutrition approach, which dramatically changed her life. It is then that she created her signature method, which offers business owners a roadmap to identifying and overcoming the hidden stressors keeping them feeling exhausted.
Lisa holds multiple certifications in the field of Functional Nutrition and is one of the first coaches in the nation to be Board Certified by the National Board of Medical Examiners. She has written for Green & Tonic and quoted as an expert in Thrive Global and Huffington Post.
With that said, Jacobsen suggests instead adding one specific food type to your eggs. “The only food types that work well with eggs are non-starchy vegetables, such as broccoli, mushrooms, green beans, leafy greens, etc,” Jacobsen says, as “many people don’t respond well when combining dairy or beans to their eggs as well.”
Ultimately, she concludes, “eggs are a protein and it generally takes 3-4 hours to digest them.” You also want “strong stomach acid” to break the protein down, Jacobsen adds, which is made possible with a well-balanced diet and identifying which foods may be triggering indigestion and its effects for you.

"Follow the 1-2-3 rule" says Lisa Jacobsen - Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach. A good way to set yourself up for a good night’s sleep is to cycle your carbohydrates. Contrary to popular opinion, the right kind of carbohydrate can help you sleep.
It increases the amount of tryptophan available to the pineal gland. Tryptophan is needed for the synthesis of melatonin from serotonin. Melatonin in turn is the hormone that tells our body to get tired and get ready to sleep. Here’s how carb cycling works: have one non-starchy, non-processed carbohydrate for breakfast, two at lunch and three at dinner.
Try to focus on getting your carbs primarily from vegetables. Starchy vegetables (e.g., carrots, squash, turnips, white potatoes, corn) have higher amounts of carbs and should be eaten in smaller amounts – particularly if you are trying to lose or maintain your weight. Eliminate foods made with processed sugar and flour until you get your sleep rhythm under control. Then, you can experiment with them to see how and if they affect your quality of sleep.
