Easy Tips For Healthy Blood Sugar Levels
Blood sugar imbalances are associated with a host of symptoms and health problems, including type II diabetes, unexplained fatigue, extra weight around the middle and mood disturbances.
One of the reasons for the rampant rise in type-2 diabetes is that the range for normal blood sugar is too high (1). This explains why many people have symptoms, like extra weight around the middle and unexplained fatigue, for years before they are diagnosed. Now that I’ve shared this important information, I also want to offer ways for you to solve the puzzle.
Before you make any changes, you have to know what you’re dealing with. (Of course this is true of any health concern.)
Start By Checking Your Blood Sugar
If your blood sugar is normal, start to incorporate the tips below, little by little, to avoid problems with sugar as you age.
Here Are Some Useful Tips For Promoting Healthy Blood Sugar Levels:
1. Focus On Including Protein At BreakfastIf you’re only going to do one thing, then make sure to eat some protein at breakfast every morning. Aim for at least 10 gms. If you’re in a rush, then a low-glycemic shake with protein, such as the Superfood Protein Blend is a good start. When you get protein first thing in the morning, it sets you up for “normal” blood sugar for the rest of the day.
Some other ideas for a protein breakfast include: eggs (poached, scrambled, fried or in an omelette), a nut milk smoothie with berries and hemp seeds, fish, sprouted bread with nut butter, grilled tempeh, and leafy greens - sauteed or in a smoothie.
2. Know That Blood Sugar Response Is Quite Individual!
3. Eliminate Wheat
4. Check Your Stress Levels
5. Consider Supplements
6. Make Friends With Stevia
7. Exercise To Burn Off Excess Cortisol
8. Stop Dieting!
I know this topic isn’t particularly sexy. And I know these changes require commitment and discipline, which isn’t too appealing. But following this prescription is true preventive medicine. And incorporating even half of these tips will help you set the stage for better health on many levels.

(1) “Normal” is set at 99 mg/dL, while recent studies indicate that fasting glucose levels should be in the range of 70–85 mg/dL. Blood sugar levels after a meal (non-fasting) should only rise 40 mg/dL over your fasting level. This means that your blood sugar level should be in the range of 110–125mg/dL one or two hours after a meal.
