Manage Your Blood Sugar with Healing Foods
All the warnings about obesity and potential for diabetes can be scary. However, there is a chance that you can lower your blood sugar using healing foods. For instance, blueberries are made of substances that increase insulin sensitivity. Similarly, cinnamon causes the muscles and the liver to respond to insulin. Olive oil helps you feel full without the need for saturated fat, and avocados helps slow down blood sugar release.
Various spices such as fenugreek seed, turmeric, cumin, ginger, mustard, curry and coriander also are used to fight diabetes. Vinegar added to your diet also can help, in that it does curb appetite. Furthermore, you can eat one or two eggs in the morning, and this helps you control hunger. This food provides satiety as it regulates both glucose and insulin in your body. Eggs also are said to cause a 65 percent loss in weight than breakfast without eggs. Boiled and poached eggs instead of fried are probably the best to eat, by the way.
Manage Consumption to Lower Your Numbers
Reducing intake of white bread, noodles, pastries and sugary treats but increasing high-fiber grains also helps. Furthermore, you are advised to stop frying breaded meat foods in shortening, lard and other animal fats. In addition, if you make dishes such as meat loaf, it is recommended to find alternative recipes that perhaps do not require breadcrumbs. Moreover, you are advised to limit intake of starchy vegetables such as corn, potatoes or peas. At the same time, increase intake of watery produce such as watermelon, strawberry, celery or spinach.
It is also advisable to keep a close watch on food labels. Choose the condiments that have little to no added sugar in them. Furthermore, the FDA recommends that the added sugars in food you eat be no more than 10 percent of your daily diet. This limitation, of course, depends on doctors’ orders if you are already diagnosed with a health condition such as diabetes, hypoglycemia or heart disease.
