Okay now onward with blood sugar. Keeping your blood sugar levels even is incredibly important for all aspects of your health, but here are my top 3 favorite reasons.

  1. Steady, good levels of energy. Your energy levels follow your blood sugar: that’s a roller coaster your don’t want to be on, so staying between 70-99 supports consistent energy levels as well as reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, joint and bone problems, and kidney disease.
  2. Stable mood and mental focus. Similarly to energy levels, when your blood sugar spikes and then crashes, your mood and mental capacities do too. High blood sugar is also associated with an increase in mental health conditions such as depression.
  3. Balanced weight. When your blood sugar is stable, the hormones that regulate weight balance and appetite regulation are too. 

If your energy, mood, mental focus, or weight feel out of balance or you struggle in any of these areas, I really encourage you to test out your blood sugar levels with a glucometer (ask your doctor about it or you can get your own) and/or try my dietary suggestions at the end to see if you notice improvements when you eat to stabilize your levels.

3 foods considered to be healthy that have been found to throw blood sugar out of balance are:

  1. Oatmeal
  2. Whole grain cereal
  3. Acai bowls.

Shocking right?! But you can read the details here about how these common breakfast foods (and other commonly eaten foods) stacked up during continuous glucose monitoring tests.

Opt for higher protein and fiber combos (collagen or protein powder in your oatmeal or mix it with flax/chia or hemp; veggie scramble, bacon and eggs, green smoothie with high quality protein powder, etc), especially at your first meal of the day, to set the tone for balanced energy, mood, mental clarity, and weight.

It is my passion to work with people like you whose health symptoms are getting in the way of you living life fully and with a sense of freedom in your body. I can help you to regain your health so you can feel great and free to enjoy life fully.
