Do you suffer from those sugar highs and lows?  Do you ever wonder how to avoid them, but aren't really sure what to do?  Here are some ideas for you:
  • Start by eating better carbs.  Go for the low-glycemic carbs such as whole grains, barley, quinoa, whole grain brown rice, vegetables, low-glycemic fruits like apples and berries.
  • Avoid processed foods including white rice.
  • Avoid white potatoes
  • Avoid fruit juices and opt for the whole fruit instead.
  • Fill up on fiber.
  • Exercise! Exercise not only burns calories, it also makes your muscles better at transferring sugar from your blood into your cells, where it’s used for energy. That helps reduce your risk of diabetes—and if you have diabetes, helps you manage it and ward off dangerous complications.
