Lowering Blood Sugar

Fiber and Blood Sugar

Since fiber passes through the digestive tract without being absorbed, it doesn’t increase blood sugar levels and doesn’t need to be counted by those who control their blood sugar through counting carbohydrates. Soluble fiber, when eaten in large amounts, can actually lower blood glucose. Because it slows down the digestive process, it also slows the absorption of sugar from the diet, helping to keep blood sugar levels more even throughout the day.”  Quoted from:

I ate Nature Valley Protein bars (Peanut butter and dark chocolate flavor) and it lowered my blood sugar.  Mine had been running about 105 to 120 even in the morning before I ate anything.  But today at 5:30 when I came home from work it was 90.  The last time I ate was about 3:30.  I ate 3 nature valley protein bars throughout the day as snacks.  They contain 5 grams of fiber each.

For anyone who is borderline diabetic or pre-diabetic like me, try this and see if it lowers your blood sugar.  Let me know how it turns out.

A new Me by 53?

A NEW ME BY 53

Slide1

 

I am totally having trouble sticking to this goal.  That is why I haven’t posted in this category for a long time.  I’ve gained weight again so the body part is really going down the drain.  The soul part is up and down.

  Emotions, can you trust them?

Spiritually, God has never failed me yet.  I am hanging on to Him like glue.  I may not be praising or praying as much as I used to, or as much as I’d like to, but I am still in love with my King and asking for His help constantly.  Life is hard, but God is good, all the time.

There is something magical about the new year as far as resolutions and re-committments, so I think I will re-start this 1-1-13.  There are a few nutritionist on WordPress that I follow.  If any of you have any suggestions on how to beat this stuff, let me know.  I’ve tried almost every diet in existence.
