|As noted in the picture above, I use a continuous glucose monitoring device called Levels Health.|
It allows me to track my blood glucose 24-hours a day.
Although I am not diabetic, I am interested in glucose/insulin stabilization for optimal health and for body fat reduction.
In fact, I am so driven by this fact that I am willing to live with a small needle in my arm 24-hours a day.
In addition, I use the information to help both my clients and myself.
The manufacturer, Levels Health, just released their data from users.
|After measuring the effects of over 250,000 food inputs, they analyzed the results.|
They listed a report of their biggest offenders.
It is no surprise that certain foods and drinks caused a huge glucose spike, over 60mg/dl or more.
The huge glucose spike is then followed by a subsequent glucose dip from insulin being produced and released into the bloodstream.
These foods include:
•Alcohol (beer, wine, spirits)
Once again, no surprise since all of these foods are high carb/sugar foods.
|However, what is surprising is a list of other foods that many people would otherwise consider healthy and non-problematic.|
•Pho and Ramen
Once again, they are reporting foods that are high glycemic, over a 60mg/dl blood glucose spike.
For reference, a Snicker’s Bar is a 64mg/dl!
My point in sharing this data is to help clarify a very confusing topic.
The Right Diet is a huge topic, that cannot easily be solved with any one-off approach.
However, the beauty in learning and practicing The Right Nutrition is that you can have the body of your dreams with the health and energy that will last a lifetime!
