What To Eat To Stabilise Your Blood Sugar Levels

If you’re on a mission to strip processed sugars and carbs from your life – or just to reduce your risk of diabetes and stablise your blood sugar levels – here’s the good news: you don’t have to be limited to a lack-lustre diet of expensive “health” products that might taste more like cardboard than food. While sugar and carbohydrates have been controversial topics over the past few years, acccording to the experts, there’s plenty of ways to inject colour, texture, flavor and creativity into a low-GI diet as you stabilise your blood sugar levels. What will work for you can depend on your cultural background, your diabetes risk and what you like to eat. Dieticians warn against anyone totally eliminating carbohydrates from their diet for weight loss or blood sugar control. That’s because our blood sugar (glucose) – sourced mostly from foods containing starches and sugars – provides us with a gradual, continuous supply of energy, which keeps us going from one meal to the next. “It’s important not to cut this food group from your diet as carbohydrates are our main energy filler and provide lots of essential vitamins and minerals,” says Accredited Practising Continue reading >>

    Here is a great discussion on what you should do for a low. http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-discussions/general/16969-15-15-rule-do-you-know-it
    As many have said, water doesn't raise your levels. You are right, so trust what you know. If you want to raise it quick, just use about 15 grams of a fast acting carb like OJ or sugar or glucose tablets. Then once it's going up, you can add the peanut butter or some regular food items to help keep it up and stop the rapid rise.
