Scientific research has proven over and over again that maintaining your blood sugar is key to keeping unwanted weight off. Simply put:
“Your blood sugar level is the amount of glucose from what you eat that’s circulating in your bloodstream to provide energy to cells immediately or be stored for future use. A well-balanced blood sugar level is crucial to your overall fitness and well-being, regulating your hormones, triggering your body to burn stored fat, and increasing your metabolism to help you lose weight.
Unfortunately, most people’s blood sugar is not properly balanced. If you’re getting too much glucose, it leads to high blood-sugar levels, which your body can’t break down and stores as fat.” – SOURCE
Fortunately, there are simple things you can do to prevent blood sugar spikes and even get your body to start burning fat as fuel:
- Eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day.
- Drink at least 1/2 of your body weight in water.
- Don’t skip meals
- Perform low/moderate intensity exercise 5 times per week.
