When is your body at its best?  When your blood sugar is BALANCED.

Understanding your body’s blood sugar can help you feel like an absolute rockstar. Let’s take a quick look at the HIGHS and LOWS to give you a quick glimpse into the workings of your amazing body – so you know how to find that BALANCED sweet spot {so you feel your absolute best!}.  

What Keeps Our Body Running

Your body runs off of Glucose – which is fuel for all the cells in your body – but too much can become a slow-acting poison. Let’s take a look at what happens when our blood sugar isn’t stable.

➚ When Your Blood Sugar Is Too HIGH… 

  • WEIGHT WILL INCREASE – When your glucose levels are high, your body stores fat. 
  • PANCREAS TROUBLE – High sugar levels erode the ability of cells in your pancreas to make insulin. This causes the organ to overcompensate and your insulin levels stay elevated. This can cause permanent damage to the pancreas. 
  • ATHEROSCLEROSIS – Your body’s ability to transport blood throughout is vital. High levels of blood sugar can lead to Atherosclerosis, which is a hardening of the blood vessels. Damaged blood vessels can open the flood gates for health issues including: Kidney Disease, Heart Attacks, Vision Loss and Blindness, Strokes, Weakened Immune System (so you get sick more often), Neuropathy (which causes tingling, pain, or less sensation in your hands, legs, and feet), Erectile Dysfunction, and Slow Wound Healing.

When Does Our Blood Sugar Get Too High? When large meals and too many calories and sugar are consumed at one time it causes a spike in blood sugar, which increases toxins in the body. The High-Low blood sugar cycle begins.  

➘ When Your Blood Sugar Is Too Low…

Mood swings, sugar cravings, edginess, headaches, energy crashes, brain fog – these are all effects of low blood sugar. When our blood sugar gets too low we crave fuel that can be used quickly by the body – think sugar, simple carbohydrates, and sweets and treats (ever downed a chip bag or couldn’t stop eating those cookies? Yep, low blood sugar). When the blood sugar is low the body also burns muscle for fuel – which is an absolute tragedy – your muscle keeps your metabolism HIGH. Your body also holds on to fat instead of using it for fuel so you won’t lose weight.

When Does Our Blood Sugar Get Too Low? Our blood sugar gets too low when we skip meals, go too long without eating, restrict our calories, and don’t eat the right balance of protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats. 

➙ Finding Your Sweet Spot – The Power of BALANCE 

A body with stable blood sugar has no cravings, great energy, releases fat to be used as fuel (how we lose weight), protects its lean muscle (which is vital for a high metabolism and good muscle tone), has good mental acuity (no brain fog), and just feels amazing. Bottom line: You feel great and in control of your body. 

Your body is at its OPTIMUM when the blood sugar is balanced.  

Working With Your Body

Don’t feel weak during these high and low blood sugar “swings”.  Your body is an amazing machine and is trying to keep you alive and function the best it can.  Learn to work WITH your body instead of against it.  Stable blood sugar is vital for overall health and well-being.  A happy body is a stable and “balanced” body. 

The Best Way To Balance Your Blood Sugar

Starting your day RIGHT is everything! Remember, the best chance you have at balancing and stabilizing your blood sugar is when you BREAK your FAST, after your nightly rest. What you consume FIRST in the day is absolutely critical to nourish the cells, balance your body, and properly feed your healthy gut bacteria so it flourishes. The body comes ALIVE when it receives proper nourishment.
