Reducing Carbs for Blood Sugar Control
The average American consumes 350 grams of carbohydrates per day. No wonder we are so sick and 1 in 3 people have Type 2 Diabetes!
The fastest way to reduce your blood sugar and A1C is to reduce the amount of carbohydrates you consume in a day. Aim for 20-30 grams of carbohydrates and make sure it is in the form of vegetables, nothing in a box, bag, or through a window. Stay away from the starchy vegetables (potatoes, yams), root vegetables (carrots, turnips, parsnips, rutabaga), and go for the greens, squash, leafy greens, etc, for best glucose control.
Fruits have a higher carbohydrate count, so while you are allowing your body to heal, be sure to stay away from tropical fruits, especially bananas, mango, pineapple, kiwi, etc. Berries are okay, in moderation…less than 1 cup per serving to keep carbs lower.
As far as proteins go, use your palm as a guide for serving size. Protein portions need not be larger than the palm of your hand and this varies by individual. If you consume more than what your body can handle in the form of protein, it will be turned to glucose and you will see blood glucose rise.
