Video: What Eating “high-fat” Or “keto” Does To Your Blood Sugar

What happens to your blood sugar when you eat fat? The steps you need to stabilize your blood sugar and increase your fat-burning hormones (by following a Fat Fueled, keto eating style). Up until I found keto (high-fat, low-carb living) I was in the “eat every 2-3 hours in order to control blood sugar” camp. What I didn’t know, was that the constant eating; generally of carbohydrates, was exactly what was causing my blood sugar irregularities – constant “hangry” feelings, hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, and more. After a couple of weeks of eating Fat Fueled, keto, I no longer struggled with hypoglycemia. It was as if my sugar lows just… disappeared. And I’m not the only one that’s experienced massive changes to blood sugar shortly after shifting to a Fat Fueled, keto life. I invited Dietitian Cassie on the show today to help explain exactly what happens to our blood sugar when we eat fat – the ins and outs of insulin resistance, actions that affect blood sugar, how to use carb-ups to heal insulin resistance and much more. Today’s keto video encourages us to use dietary fat as our ally, to rely on it to support balanced blood sugar, thriving hormones and a he Continue reading >>

    Keto diet - morning blood sugar are still high

    My dr recently took me off my type 2 meds because I'd been doing so well but my morning readings where my only issue. To watch that with continued diet n exercise
    so I've been a week on this keto diet where my carbs are under 20 carbs for the day. I've lost 5 lbs so far but my morning fasting blood sugar numbers are still high around 147 and my dr told me to keep them under 130 for mornings. Why is this? I'm frustrated I thought this diet would be great for me to loose weight n would make my morning numbers better because hardly any carbs. I basically eat meat n vegetables and do Jazzercise 5 days a week…so confused. Any advice or ideas helpful.

    I deal with Dawn Phenomenon too. Stress, anxiety and poor sleep really have an impact on the morning glucose. Someone told me that protein just before bed can help. Lately I have been consuming a spoonful of peanut butter at bedtime. I does seem to help. However if I am stressed and not sleeping well, nothing helps. Stress reduction and plenty of good sleep go a long way.

    It would be nice if the only "enemy" was the glucose we consumed. Sadly our bodies are amazingly adept at producing and storing glucose all on their own.
    If we're lucky after walking the straight and narrow for a while our bodies get on board and stop sabotaging our efforts

  • How Many Grams Of Sugar A Day Keto Diet

    The amount of carbohydrates you eat can have a huge impact on your daily blood sugar levels and your A1C levels, but the “jury” is still out on just how many carbs a person with diabetes “should” eat. Additionally, what one person considers “low-carb” can differ greatly compared to what another person considers low-carb. At DiabetesDaily, we define a “low-carb” diet as fewer than 100 grams of carbs per day, and a very low-carb die ...
