Food Tips For Managing Your Blood Sugar

  1. Avoid Starches: Starches are of little nutritional value. They convert to sugar. Your body stimulates too much insulin when you eat starches. Manufacturers are producing highly processed starches. If it is processed, don’t eat it. Processed foods often have harmful additives like sugar, preservatives, and other chemicals.
  2. Choose Quality Protein: Protein is a “guilt-free” food. The right sources of protein won’t raise your blood sugar and helps your body handle insulin better, build muscle and repair tissue. All essential for you to prevent diabetes and stay lean. Grass-fed beef, free-range poultry, cage-free eggs and wild salmon are all good choices.
  3. Exercise Large Muscle Groups: Concentrate on exercising the biggest muscles. Leg muscles are the largest. These hefty muscles burn excess sugar in the blood faster than any others.
  4. Choose Your Vegetables Wisely: Choose vegetables that don’t spike your blood sugar (low glycemic). Those that grow above ground are good choices – cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, mushrooms, green beans, leafy green vegetables and tomatoes.
