The 7-day Meal Plan To Help Kick Your Sugar Habit

This week-long low sugar diet aims to keep your energy levels high and your mood regulated by balancing blood sugar with the right combination of foods at each meal and naturally sweet foods that let you indulge in a healthy way. After the first few days, your sugar cravings should reduce, and by the end of the week, they’ll be much lower. Many of these dishes are filled with leafy green vegetables, and every meal has protein, which diminishes cravings by helping keep blood sugar constant. We’ve cut out almost all added sugar, as well as hyper-processed starchy foods, like bread, bagels and crackers, which are quickly digested and contribute to sugar cravings. Try to eat something every 3 to 4 hours to keep your blood sugar levels relatively stable and stave off cravings. If you’re used to eating a lot of sugar, it may have dulled your taste buds to the flavours of natural foods. Don’t worry — just as you learned to love all that extra sugar, you can learn to unlove it. You may even find you start to dislike overly sweetened foods. Related: Going Paleo? Here’s the truth about the latest fad diets After the week is over, carry your healthy habits forward by following the Continue reading >>

    When is Best Time to Take Metformin ???

    My Endo told me he didn't care if I took Metformin prior to, or, following my meals (500Mg). He said to experiment, and as of today, I have yet to find out which way is most beneficial. Also, if I take before dinner, do I take them a set amount of minutes prior to the meal, or, along with the meal. This would also apply to after a meal, Do I wait a set amount of time, or, gobble down the Metformin right after my last bite of tasty morsels of food??
    Your experience would be helpful, as my doctors, and the pharmacy have no real, hard-and-fast rules as to what is the best time to take Metformin.
    Thanks for any of your wisdom and insight. I'd really like to get the most benefits out of this pill.
    Shalom,

    When I was on Met, I was instructed to take it with the first bite of the meal. You definitely won't like the gastric results of taking it on an empty stomach!

    I take 500mg with breakfast and another 500mg just before bed. I must be one of the lucky ones--I've never had any unwanted side effects from metformin.

    One problem with David Mendosa’s article about the insulin index, which I referenced yesterday, is that the insulin index table he gives doesn’t tell you very much about the foods contained in it. For example, as a correspondent pointed out to me, is the “beef” listed there ground beef with 25 percent fat? or is it a nice, lean sirloin tip steak with only 3 percent fat? Luckily, I was able to find the original study that Mendosa was writi ...
