Blood Sugar – A Sour Topic!
Diabetes & Obesity – a daily media topic!
We have the statistics however we need ‘The Blood Sugar Solution’.
With a little help and support the solution is quite easy and in this blog I will give you some tips:
Eat food as close to how Nature intended – with as little removed and as little added as possible. Check your food labels and if a food has more than 1 item that doesn’t look like real food don’t buy it.
Tip No. 2
Choose wholefood carbohydrates and for a meal eat about the size of a small fist – if you are not going to use the energy it has to be stored. Regular blood sugar spikes convert to cholesterol, raise blood triglyceride, fatty deposits in the liver…. For more information on cholesterol – click here
Tip No. 2
Eat a good quality protein food with each food intake. Protein rich foods take longer to digest and therefore combined with a wholefood carb. provide a more gradual blood sugar increase
Tip No. 4
Regularly have good quality Omega 3 & 9 oils – seeds and or nuts daily and 2-4 portions of oily fish weekly
Tip No. 5
Eat a rainbow of colours in your diet daily – the micro-nutrients in vegetables and fruit support healthy blood sugar management
Tip No. 6
We all need good dietary fibre which slows the breakdown of foods. There are many types of fibre however increasing foods like milled flaxseeds, lentils and beans we will provide some health giving plant fibres
Tip No. 7
Bring on the natural water and flavour it with lemon, mint, ginger etc. – 1.5 – 2 litres of water daily supports healthy cell functionality – cells and their organelles are fundamental to all live processes.
Tip No. 8
Don’t eat big meals late in the day and stop evening snacking – this is the time to begin ‘rest and repair’ not ‘digest and store’!!!
