We have all heard that we need to get our blood sugar balanced for weight loss, but what does this actually mean?
And why do we need to do this? And most importantly, HOW do we do this!?
Well, balanced blood sugar levels can benefit the entire body and help it perform its functions at optimal levels. But the biggest reward for balancing blood sugar is weight loss.
And not just weight loss, but also maintaining the weight after reaching the goal weight.
What exactly is this “blood sugar” everyone talks about?
Blood sugar (or blood glucose) refers to the amount of sugar in the bloodstream. Our blood sugar is our body’s primary source of energy, and it is produced when our bodies break down any form of carbohydrates or sugar from the food we eat.
The trick is to have enough sugar in your bloodstream to use as energy for your daily tasks, but not too much so that the body stores it as fat. This is why balance is the number one priority when it comes to blood sugar levels.
When you follow a healthy, balanced way of eating it can help keep your blood sugar in check. Eating right can also help prevent sugar rushes, known as insulin spikes. And this means that you don’t get that nasty fatigued feeling after your sugar crashes down from its high.
What does insulin have to do with blood sugar levels?
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates the sugar levels in the blood. It helps keep the levels between 80 mg/ml and 120 mg/ml, which is the recommended “healthy zone”.
Insulin regulates the blood sugar by allocating the sugar from the food we eat as energy. However, when there is more sugar than what the body needs for energy, the insulin stores this sugar as fat. And that is how unbalanced blood sugar levels cause weight gain.
This is why the first step to losing weight is getting your blood sugar levels under control.
A fantastically easy way to manage blood sugar levels is by taking a Manna Blood Sugar Support tablet or two with each meal. It is an all-natural supplement that helps to stabilize blood sugar levels by using the unique properties of Mesquite.
There are also some dietary and lifestyle changes that can make the world of difference when it comes to keeping blood sugar levels stable…
Two Things that you should avoid…
In order to balance your blood sugar levels, there are certain foods that you should steer far clear of.
The main culprits are:
These are different forms of sugar, and they usually end in “ose” like fructose, sucrose, lactose, and glucose.
Hidden sugars can be found in food that you would never expect to contain sugar. These may be foods that do not actually taste sweet or food that is generally perceived to be healthy. To avoid this, carefully read the nutritional information on the label before buying a product. Common cases of these include processed foods, beverages, fat-free foods, and fruit juices.
6 Things should be eating and doing…
The easiest way to stabilize blood sugar within the normal range is to eat a balanced diet of fat, protein, fibre, and greens at each meal. (See the Manna Diet in the free eBook)
Fat does not impact the blood sugar as much as carbohydrates. When fats are consumed on their own, they have no effect on our circulating blood sugar. When fats are eaten with a meal, it slows down the absorption of your meal, which in turn helps avoid sudden blood sugar spikes.
Protein is great for keeping blood sugar levels steady since it does not cause a big rise in blood sugar levels when consumed on their own. Just be careful of eating an excess of protein, as it may be converted into glucose.
Fibre, similar to fats, slows down the absorption of nutrients, especially glucose. Fresh fruits and veggies contain plenty of fibre, which helps balance out the sugar that is also found in these fruits. Always eat fruits and veggies in their whole-state, as the juice may not have the same amount of fibre and may end up causing blood sugar spikes.
Greens and deep-coloured vegetables are jam-packed with vitamins and minerals. These are essential in your diet as different vitamins and minerals are needed for different parts and functions of your body. As an added bonus; Magnesium found in green vegetables has been shown to increase insulin sensitivity, which is good for regulating blood sugar.
Exercise is important when dealing with any health complications – especially weight-loss! It does not matter what type of exercise you do, just as long as you get up and get active! Exercise helps burn calories, which is the key to losing weight.
Make sure to get a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise, at least 3 times per week.
