Beat the Sweets: Tips for Lowering Blood Sugar

Whether you have diabetes or prediabetes, or simply want to reduce your risk for developing diabetes, lowering your blood sugar is an important part of maintaining overall health. This comprehensive action plan takes you beyond the basics of simply cutting out sugar, showcasing the dietary changes, food replacements, exercise regimens, and supplement information required to lower or stabilize blood sugar.

Don’t overindulge in carbs

People who suffer from diabetes or prediabetes are often told to avoid sugar. But simply nixing the cake and ice cream isn’t a quick fix. Simple carbs, such as those found in bread and pasta, get turned into sugar during digestion, and they can do as much to raise blood sugar levels as traditionally “sweet” things do. Instead of eating pasta with a side of salad, have a large salad full of proteins and green veggies, with small, handful-size side of pasta.
