3rd Step: Proper Eating: To Stabilize Blood Sugar
When choosing to eat fish, chicken or other high quality protein-rich foods, you will raise your blood sugar levels to normal, because they rise slower and will not peak dramatically like the refined carbohydrates. Most importantly, eating high quality protein foods as well as fat takes a long time to digest; therefore, as you are digesting your food, your blood sugar levels remain steady during the whole process. Your appetite is satisfied, you are no longer hungry and your attitude and disposition are good and balanced.
Foods to Eat
Vegetables are the number one feature on the Sugar Cleansing Detox Meal Plan. You are allowed to eat an unlimited amount of veggies as long as they are on the approved list. Vegetables are beneficial because they have virtually no impact on your blood sugar levels and rich in vitamins, minerals antioxidants and fiber.
Healthy fats are also highlighted because they benefit blood sugar control and prevent cardiovascular disease. Foods containing healthy fats include nuts, seeds, avocado, olives and coconuts. The eating plan also includes lean protein, legumes, whole grains and fresh fruit (in moderation.)
Healthy Sweetener – Stevia
Stevia is a South American herb used as a natural sweetener for centuries and with its steviol glycoside extracts having up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar; stevia has garnered attention with the rise in demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives. Because stevia has a negligible effect on blood glucose, it is attractive as a natural sweetener to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets. Stevia has a zero glycemic index, zero calories, zero sugar and zero carbs and it has been shown to help normalize blood pressure, aid digestion, handle cravings, balance blood sugar and help kill the bad organisms in the mouth. You can cook and bake with Stevia, pour it on any foods, add it to any beverage, smoothie or shake and use it to flavor your purified water to help replace soda or any other sweetened drink. When you have a sugar craving, just take a sip of your Stevia sweetened water and it will handle the craving. It is great for diabetics.
