Balancing Blood Sugar

Balancing blood sugar is a cornerstone of maintaining optimal health. Our bodies rely on glucose, a type of sugar, as a primary source of energy. However, too much or too little can lead to health issues.

When we consume carbohydrates, our body breaks them down into glucose. This triggers the pancreas to release insulin, a hormone that allows cells to absorb glucose. If we consume excessive carbs, our blood sugar spikes, causing the pancreas to produce more insulin. Over time, this can lead to insulin resistance, a precursor to type 2 diabetes.

Balanced blood sugar levels help maintain steady energy levels, curb cravings, and support weight management. It also plays a crucial role in preventing chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Achieving balanced blood sugar involves a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep. Consuming fiber-rich foods, lean proteins, and healthy fats at each meal can help maintain steady blood sugar levels. Regular physical activity helps increase insulin sensitivity, and a good night’s sleep aids in regulating hormones that affect blood sugar.

One of my favorite resources for clients that are new to blood sugar balancing concepts is the book Glucose Revolution by Jessie Inchauspe. This book is full of tips and techniques to help steady your blood sugar, often times within the scope of what you are already eating (a generally healthy diet).

In some cases, we may recommend wearing a Continuous Glucose Monitor to help you understand and visibly see the way that some foods/drinks/lifestyle choices affect your glucose levels and cause glucose to spike.

In conclusion, balancing blood sugar is not just about preventing diabetes. It’s about creating the foundation for a healthier, more vibrant life.
