Tips For Balancing Blood Sugar
1. Start the Day Right: Start every day with a low-sugar, high-protein breakfast.
Store bought cereals tend to be full of sugar, so try making your own. Don’t forget to sprinkle it with cinnamon! Only a few grams of this warming spice have been shown to lower fasting blood sugar levels and balance fat levels.
2. Don’t Skip Meals:
The body does much better eating smaller amounts of food more often throughout the day. Depending on your caloric intake you could eat 4-5 small meals (400-500 calories each) at least every 3 hours. Don’t forget to incorporate protein into your snacks and meals! A handful of walnuts, a cup of edamame, or a hard-boiled egg will help stabilize your blood sugar, give you energy, and manage your hunger levels so you don’t overeat at your next meal.
3. Eat Your Vitamins and Minerals:
Magnesium-rich foods include dark leafy greens, beans and lentils, avocado, and pumpkin seeds. Chromium is also essential for regulating blood sugar. Chromium, found in onions, nutritional yeast, mushrooms, and oysters, enhances effect in the body, improving the uptake of energy and balancing blood sugar.
4. Time for an Oil Change:
at foods high in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, olive oil, flax oil, coldwater fatty fish, and avocado because this fat provides blood sugar control for your body.
5. Get Moving:
Get active for at least 30 minutes most days of the week. As an added bonus, weight bearing exercises use up more energy than cardio. Don’t forget to find time to relax too! When the body is under continuous stress, it needs to find quick energy which can trigger sugar cravings. Yoga and meditation are incredible tools to bust stress and reduce cravings.
