Did you know that an estimated 1 in 10 adults have diabetes?
What’s worse is that about 1 in 5 of those people don’t know that they have it and struggle with symptoms before realizing that there’s a problem.
If you have diabetes or are worried about developing it, this blog is for you.
Here, I’ll go over three tips that you can use to improve your diet so that you can start feeling your best.
1. Don’t Snack
Instead of snacking frequently, try doing a fast instead!
Intermittent fasting can not only help prevent you from eating when you’re not hungry, but can also help reset your blood sugar and ease digestive issues.
If you refrain from snacking or from eating altogether, your body will use up the glucose already in your bloodstream, lowering your blood sugar.
Fasting will also help give your liver a rest and allow your insulin production to even out.
2. Stop Eating Sugar
Much like fasting, eating less sugar will help lower your body’s blood sugar.
This is because when you eat sugar-free food, you won’t experience a sudden spike in your blood sugar.
In addition, this will also help lower the amount of inflammation in your body and support a stronger and healthier microbiome in your gut.
Eating foods without sugar will ensure that you remain full longer, so you won’t have the urge to snack.
This is due to the fiber in unprocessed foods without sugar, such as dark leafy greens and other veggies.
When you eat foods that don’t contain sugar, you also won’t experience the crash of fatigue that often happens after a blood sugar spike, which means that you’ll have more stable energy throughout the day.
3. Add Apple Cider Vinegar to Your Diet
Adding apple cider vinegar to your diet can not only aid in digestion but also give you beneficial probiotics that support your overall health.
Probiotics have been shown to improve insulin resistance.
Apple cider vinegar also helps lower your insulin levels and helps reverse insulin sensitivity.
This means that the glucose in your bloodstream will be able to move into the cells more efficiently and lower your blood sugar levels.
