The Secret To Controlling Your
Blood Sugar Levels

Many of us suffer from an imbalance in blood sugar levels without really knowing it. From debilitating physical symptoms to incapacitating emotional problems, erratic blood sugar can make your life a misery.

How do we correct this problem? Before looking at solutions it's important to look at how pervasive bad blood sugar can be and why we need to reverse it. Low blood sugar is responsible for all of our worst cravings: starches and sweets, alcohol, caffeine and fats. Excess weight has more to do with bad blood sugar than any other factor. High blood sugar can lead to diabetes.

Restoring normal range blood sugar levels is tricky but it can be achieved if you have the right information.

How To Restore Normal Range Blood Sugar Levels

Many years ago we were lucky enough to discover a book called The 5-Day Miracle Day, written by Adele Puhn. Adele is a New York based nutritional consultant who has changed the lives of countless clients by introducing them to her program. A family member was going through a major depression at the time and in desperation we loaned her the book. She followed it to the letter, and after 5 days, went to her depression support group and announced,

"I can't believe how good I feel. It's as if I've always been like this, like I've never been depressed in my life - in fact, I can't imagine a reason I would ever be depressed. This feels so 'normal' and depression feels like something that might happen to someone else, not me."
Here's the basic diet on based on a 7:30AM wake up time:

7.30am Wake up
8.00am Breakfast
1 carbohydrate and 1 protein (plus vitamins)
The carbohydrate is for a quick release of energy, the protein for a slow release.
(Examples: cereal & milk, 3 seed bread & tofu)
10.00am Hard Chew (Crunchy) Snack (vegetable)
Vegetable provides a slow release of blood sugar, stimulates the pituitary, and scrubs out the cells.
(Examples: raw celery or carrot sticks, broccoli or cauliflower florettes)
12.00pm Hard Chew Snack
Vegetable or Fruit (fruit eliminates cell toxins)
(Examples:raw celery or carrot sticks, broccoli florettes or apple wedges)
OR Lunch
1 vegetable and 1 protein
PLUS 1 hard chew vegetable
(Examples: salad with fish or potatoes, steamed vegetables & rice)
No pasta (too fast a release). Bread is optional.
3.00pm Soft or Hard Chew Snack
Fruit or vegetable
5.00pm Soft or Hard Chew Snack
6.00pm Dinner (8pm at the latest)
Cooked vegetables with a protein or carbohydrate)
TIPS: * Keep a food diary
* Drink 8-12 glasses of water daily
* TREATS: Have 1-2 weekly (1 serving - just enough to satisfy you)
* No salt or sweeteners, minimum fat.

It's important that you consult with a qualified health professional before embarking on any new dietary or exercise regimen.

Gathering information online is fine for research purposes, but you need a real live professional to monitor your progress if you attempt to make drastic changes to your lifestyle. Unless you're a health professional yourself, you aren't equipped to objectively observe your body's responses to a new diet or exercise program. So whatever your chosen course of action, please be sure you enlist the support of a qualified professional.
