    Your blood sugar level is the amount of sugar (glucose) obtained from what you eat that’s circulating in your bloodstream to provide energy to cells immediately or be stored for future use. A well-balanced blood sugar level is crucial to your overall fitness,  well-being and regulating your hormones.

    If you’re eating too many fast releasing carbohydrates, it can leads to high blood-sugar levels, which could cause your body to store it as fat, if it is not burnt off. Ironically, not getting enough sugar can also leads to putting on extra pounds! Eating too little glucose can lead to a low blood sugar level, causing your body to go into “starvation mode” where it burns your lean muscle instead of the fat.

    Balance is what we are striving for. You don’t need to be fear full of carbohydrates; we just need to eat the ones that nourish our body.

    In order to supply yourself with energy throughout the day, you require regular small meals every three and a half to four hours, each containing the protein and carbohydrates. This ensures efficient blood sugar management, and helps to prevent the highs and lows in energy often experienced during the normal day and it’s at those lows that you are more likely to want the sort of foods that are nutrient poor. This will help you feel more energetic and happier and also help you lose any excess weight you may have faster.

    It is vital that you don’t skip meals or snacks so please add in some protein to your mid-morning and mid afternoon snack. I would like you to have small regular meals, even if it’s just the apple and a couple of seeds mid-morning and mid-afternoon. It doesn’t have to be complicated, just practical, the benefits of maintaining a balanced blood sugar level is not just with regards to weight but helps with hormones and feelings of fatigue too. 

    Basic rules

    1.Eat protein with complex carbohydrates – this will ensure that the glucose created from the food is consistent and avoids ‘flooding’ the cell with more glucose than it can absorb leading to excessive insulin production. 

    2.Eat every three and half to four hours even if it’s only something small and even if you aren’t especially hungry, this helps ensure that your metabolism is kept fired up again, 

    3.Eat breakfast – never skip breakfast, you can have any protein with any complex carbohydrate you want.

    4.Avoid sugar and refined (white) carbohydrate foods– following my plan should help reduce sugar cravings, but avoiding sugar will itself help balance glucose levels and also reduce the craving for sugar. This will help create consistent energy levels.
