A great way to stabilise your blood sugar levels over the day is to consume meals that contain a combination of protein, fibre and healthy fats. A blend of good macronutrients will allow your body to slowly break down your nutrients and reduce the need for high levels of insulin release. Whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds are recommended to provide a great source of these protein, fats and complex carbohydrates. Try to avoid foods that are high in sugar and sugar related ingredients. These have been shown to rapidly elevate your glucose levels which can lead to insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and prediabetes over time.

If you are diabetic and take medication, the bases for keeping your sugar levels within the ideal are healthy eating, medication, physical activity, and stress management which includes emotional health. If you are not diabetic, consume more natural, whole foods and associate physical activity with your lifestyle. Avoid fast food, sugary foods, sweets, pasta, bread, and cakes in excess. Eat less processed foods and more vegetables. Drink plenty of water and avoid sugary drinks, sodas, alcoholic beverages, and syrups.
