TopicGain Normal Blood Glucose Levels, Lower Cholesterol and Lose Weight Using Good Food and Fiber
Malcolm commented correctly about beans, "we like them and as we grow older we Probiotic T 50 like them a lot!" One cup of Pinto Beans contains 14.7 grams of fiber. That is 58.8% of the allowance recommended for the American Diabetic diet, about 24 grams of fiber per day. The recliner looks really good after a meal doesn't it That is not necessarily good if you have high cholesterol or blood sugar that is elevated.
Fiber is key in slowing down the release of sugar into the blood thus stabilizing blood sugar levels while your body synthesizes the food. In slowing down the process this keeps your blood sugar in check. Another consequence of this action, the slow release, is more long lasting energy.
Here is a potential fix; If you lower your portions just a bit but add more of them, you can actually eat more stuff, not volume but variety. And isn't variety the spice of life I guarantee you will be more satisfied this way. I hear it all the time; healthy food is boring. I beg to differ. For instance, here is a favorite; a quarter cup of beans seasoned to perfection, (watch for more articles, I'll give out some great bean recipes) a tasty salad, topped with sprouted peas and beans and some low fat meat like tuna or salmon.
You'll be just fine without the meat, if you like. Your body will not be tired after this meal, in fact it will begin digesting and happily distributing the helping, healing nutrients. Energy will abound in most people and you will be able to go on a walk.
So not only is your food enabling your body to manage cholesterol but you are also balancing your sugars. This allows you to have more energy, thus enabling a walk, resulting in a more healthier you.
