10 Blood Sugar–lowering Foods

Adapted from The Carb Sensitivity Program It is no exaggeration—balancing your blood sugar could be a matter of life or death. Chronic high blood sugar levels are toxic to your body, destroying organs and blood vessels and paving the way to a heart attack, type 2 diabetes, stroke, dialysis, nerve damage, erectile dysfunction, or even blindness. The good news? Out-of-control sugar levels can be reigned in and regulated with the right foods. Here are most potent blood sugar-lowering foods so you know how to lower blood sugar levels naturally. Blood Sugar Benefit: A groundbreaking study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2010 found a daily dose of the bioactive ingredients from blueberries increases sensitivity to insulin and may reduce the risk of developing diabetes in at-risk individuals. That's important because too many carbs produces too much insulin, which could lead to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Adding blueberries to daily smoothies for six weeks also improves insulin sensitivity, so feel free to eat healthy doses of the superfood fruit, too. Added Perk: Low in naturally occurring sugars, blueberries are also packed with antioxidants that fight damage from Continue reading >>

    I started Keto 3 weeks ago. I've been low sugar since February and for 6 weeks before I did Keto, I hadn't seen any weight loss or change in measurements (despite low calories, low sugar, exercise 5x a week). I just assumed I was at a 'natural' weight, but was a bit put out that I had a layer of flab around my middle still. I read up on Keto and immediately wanted to try it.
    I was 129 pounds when I started Keto and I still had this annoying layer of fat around my middle/thighs, despite the muscle I've built from exercise. It wasn't moving.
    Results? 3 weeks later, I have lost 1 inch of fat from my hips and thighs (and honestly, I don't have that much to go). The scale has crept down slowly - to 126. But I do not care about scale, it's all in the measurements for me - and that fat, which was not budging on a normal 'low calorie/sugar' diet is DEFINITELY disappearing on Keto.
    I cannot tell you how excited I am about Keto. Not only is my remaining fat disappearing rapidly, but I am energetic, I love the food, and my carb cravings have disappeared. So has my hunger. I feel... better. The past 3 weeks (aside from the first couple of days where I had a wobble) have been the easiest 'dieting' of my life. So much so that I now am taking Keto on as my lifestyle, because I believe it is the healthiest way to live. I'm not struggling eating 1300 calories a day like I was when eating so called healthy carbs and waiting for the next meal. It's truly easy to be constantly full up. On my carbier diet, I was eating and then waiting for my next meal so I could eat again. I was constantly unsatisfied. With keto, I'm constantly satisfied.
    I really urge lower weight people not to get hung up on the scale. I have so far lost 1 pound a week on keto, which is nothing and could be water weight fluctuation, but I have lost measurable stubborn fat, which is so much more important. Oh and all the health benefits I'm already feeling. My body is looking leaner every time I look in the mirror. The fat that clung desperately to me is now melting slowly and surely away. I love you Keto (and /r/keto !)

    That's why I posted - reading about 300 pound individuals losing 30 pounds a month is fantastic - but it's also good to hear how amazing Keto is for other sizes, shapes and levels of fitness too! It is a great weight loss tool, but it's so much more!
