“Balancing blood sugar levels is important in maintaining long lasting energy throughout your day. When we consume carbohydrates, our body converts this into sugar to get energy. However we are able to control our blood sugar levels by eating the right types of carbohydrates, focusing on proper portion sizes, and eating properly combining macronutrients.
Why is it important to control blood sugar spikes?
When our blood sugar levels get too high or they happen too frequently throughout the day we may feel fatigued, experience sweet cravings, insulin resistance, an increase in appetite and a hard time with weight loss.
Consuming carbohydrates is beneficial as it can provide the body with energy, however our bodies only need a small amount of glucose. When we consume too much glucose, our bodies store this versus using it for energy. We don’t need to cut carbohydrates out of our diets. We just need to ensure we are eating whole foods and combining our carbohydrates with protein and fat.
