Why Sugar Levels?

            

Discovering your sugar levels helps you understand your body and what foods you should eat. Spiking sugar levels can make you put on weight, and crashing sugar levels cause cravings and hangriness. Since everybody responds differently to different foods, understanding your unique responses is the key.

Eat, spike, crash, repeat…

Have you ever wondered why you get cravings and feel like you need to snack, sometimes not even long after you’ve eaten? When you eat carbohydrates such as sugars your body breaks them down to glucose, which is the shortest chain carbohydrate - causing your sugar levels to spike and then crash.

The sugar rollercoaster

When your sugar levels rise, insulin is produced, which pushes energy out of your bloodstream and into your fat cells. When they fall, you produce ghrelin, the "hunger hormone", so you start to get peckish again. Most people are spending all day everyday on this sugar rollercoaster. Eat, Spike, Crash, Repeat. Eat, Spike, Crash, Repeat.

Get more balance

The alternative to this never-ending cycle is to keep your sugar levels balanced. When you’re balanced, you experience consistently high energy levels and can easily lose weight. And since you no longer get the sugar crashes, you have increased focus, improved mood and no food cravings.

We’re all unique

Everyone’s body is unique and so everybody’s responses are unique. Someone might spike from apples, but not ice cream... and another person could be the other way around. See how you respond to different foods to find out what you should be eating and avoiding.
