5 Foods To Balance Blood Sugar

Good health is all about balance, especially when it comes to blood sugar. Eating the proper ratio of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates at every meal keeps blood sugar stable, helps maintain physical and emotion balance, stops food cravings, and sustains energy levels.

    I'm testing various food items to see if it has an effect on my blood glucose and is something I should remove from my diet. For example, I make SF pudding with HWC. Pudding mix reports 0 carbs and 0 sugar. BG was 80 prior to eating it. BG was 101 an hour after eating it. Serving size was 1/2 cup. Would this spike be enough to determine that I should not eat this much HWC?

    HWC is not really zero carbs though.. so it may be the carbs in that which caused a minor rise..also of course depends what was in the Mix...
    Maybe try just having the HWC (I sometimes freeze it for 45 minutes to make iced cream) and see if that causes a similar spike.

  3. A.S.McClain

    I have been testing too, and am also confused about how high a rise in BG should constitute a "spike." Double digits? Only if it pushes it over some number, like 105? For instance, one particular meal raised my BG by 25 points, but it remained under 100 - so is that meal OK to eat, or something to avoid?
