5 More Simple Secrets for Keeping Your Blood Sugar Healthy

Secret One—Get Moving: When it comes to blood sugar and health, exercise provides you with four important benefits. It increases lean body tissue, burns fat, increases the sensitivity of insulin (enabling the pancreas to produce less), and raises your metabolic rate. Brisk walking, swimming, and bicycling are all good exercise choices—but whatever exercise you choose, you want to do it for at least 30 minutes, three times weekly.

Secret Two—Muscle Up: I’m not suggesting bulking up, even a very limited amount of weight training increases muscle mass. Unlike fat tissue, muscle tissue constantly uses energy—and it’s muscle tissue that’s responsible for 80% of blood sugar uptake following a meal. To build muscle, try using dumbbells; or even a pair of soup cans will work. Plus, remember that walking builds leg muscles.

Secret Three—Get More of this “Forgotten Fat”: Preliminary research suggests that conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) may help build lean muscle mass. But in our modern-day diets, most people don’t get enough. We tend to eat fewer CLA-rich foods, such as whole milk, butter, cheese, beef, and lamb. Plus, feed and production processes have greatly reduced the amounts of CLA found in these foods. That’s why I recommend supplementing with a high-quality form of CLA—preferably one made with pure safflower oil.

Secret Four: Stretch Out Your Meals: To keep your blood sugar steady, I recommend splitting the foods you eat into several smaller meals throughout the day. If you normally eat a sandwich at noon, split it and eat half at your normal lunchtime and the other half in the middle of the afternoon. Other “snacks” at these times might be a cup of vegetable soup, a handful of nuts, several spirulina tablets, half of cup of cottage cheese, raw vegetable slices, or half an avocado.

Secret Five: Benefit from Blueberry Leaves: Blueberry leaves (Vaccinium myrtillus L.) have been used traditionally in folk medicine to promote healthy blood sugar levels and insulin function. Blueberry leaves are 10-15% chlorogenic acid, which may help to inhibit the enzyme in your liver that forms glucose. It also may help to inhibit the breakdown of glycogen, which is the sugar that’s stored in your muscles. You can look for a blueberry leaf supplement in your health food store, or you can get a full research dose in my blood sugar support formula.

The last thing I want to point out when it comes to blood sugar is that when your level is where it should be, you’ll feel it—in your energy level and overall mood. So these healthy habits truly do pay off in more ways than one.

Until next time,
