DIET and NUTRITION

Blood Sugar 101 includes all of the information you need to be educated on blood sugar and how it affects the body.

One of the most vital points within this book is that consistent blood sugar levels over 140 will damage your organs and cause complications. The first way offered to get your blood sugar down is to cut your carbohydrates to about 15 grams per meal. To make those cuts, you simply replace starch and sugar with protein and non-trans fat. Carbohydrates are said to be the main thing that raise your blood sugar. Some of the recommended foods to implement when you are trying to cut down on your carbs include:

  • Pancakes made from whey protein powder
  • Veggies
  • Wraps using lettuce leaves
  • Berries
  • Low-carb rolls
  • Nuts

Foods high in carbohydrates like pasta, rice, bread and potatoes can still be consumed, but the amount of carbohydrates must be monitored.
