Eating & Drinking Your Way To A Healthy Blood Sugar Level
You know the saying, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” What you may not realize is how the food that you are putting into your body may actually be affecting your blood sugar.
Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is a growing public health concern in the United States today. Rightfully so, as according to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 2.2 million deaths were attributed to high blood sugar. The good news is, you can take action and maintain your healthy blood sugar levels by watching your diet. Here are some easy tips to get started today:
Tip 1: You Are What You Eat
- Limit intake of foods that can cause blood sugar to spike.
- Cut back on carbohydrates and fill up on more lean protein, fruits, and vegetables.
- Increase your psyllium fiber intake, as it is not broken down by the body and will not raise blood glucose levels.
- According to the Joslin Diabetes Center, the average person should eat between 20-35 grams of fiber each day.
Tip 2: Hydrate!
- Every day, drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water or sugar-free liquids.
- Limit drinks with caffeine.
- If you’re looking to jazz up your water with some flavor, try infusing your water with lemon or fresh fruit.
- It’s a double benefit if you can get your water and fiber together in one glass! Add Meta Daily Blood Sugar Support to an 8 oz. glass of water to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of your diet.*
- Meta Daily Blood Sugar Support comes in a Pink Lemonade flavor to help make drinking water more enjoyable.
