Between 2015 and 2017, the percentage of Americans slashing sugar went from 59 percent to 76 percent, and the global sugar-free foods market is expected to grow more than 10 percent between 2017 and 2021.
We suggest you aim to consume not more than 50g of sugar—10 percent of your 2,000 calorie/day diet—per day.
Manage mornings: Earlier, calmer mornings minimize stress, and stress spurs the adrenal glands to release sugar-level-spiking cortisol.
Work it out: Fitness sets a healthy tone for the day and can stabilize sugar levels. Calorie restriction, weight loss and exercise provide different benefits for managing diabetes risk.
Eat a low-sugar breakfast: Eating more protein plus a tablespoon of pure C8 Keto MCT oil at breakfast can reduce glucose spikes in the AM—and those benefits can extend to lunch. This also prevents high-sugar snacking in the evenings. Swap overly processed cereal for grain-free granola, which is often low in carbohydrates (that become sugar in the body). It also tends to have fiber-rich seeds and nuts, spices and minimal sugar from unrefined sources such as whole fruits.
Nosh healthfully: Choose a lunch high in brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids plus optionally another tablespoon of MCT Keto C8 oil, which can reverse the effects of fructose. And when you’re hungry between meals, junk foods are twice as distracting than healthy foods.
Proactively curb sugar cravings by keeping energy stores full with a healthy midday snack. If sweets call, try Greek yogurt with fresh or dried fruit. It’s rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and antioxidants, which balance its natural sugar content.
Dine out then get out: Choosing healthy meals including canola, olive, and Keto oils is important, but what you do after dinner might impact blood sugar more significantly. A 15-minute post-dinner walk can help regulate blood sugar for up to three hours.
Sleep soundly: It may seem obvious, but a survey of more than 18,000 adults confirms people who sleep five or fewer hours a night are more likely to drink sugary caffeinated drinks. Hit the hay early to dodge the cravings. Then do it all over again.
