Why Sugar Levels?

            

Understanding your sugar levels helps you discover what foods are best for you. Spiking sugar levels is at the core of weight gain, and crashing sugar levels cause cravings, low energy and distractions. 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? Well it all comes down to your sugar levels.

The sugar rollercoaster

Shortly after eating, your body breaks down the carbs to glucose, causing your blood sugar levels to rise. Insulin then pushes this sugar into your fat cells. Your sugar levels then fall and you produce ghrelin, the "hunger hormone", which makes you 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. You must see how you respond to different foods to find out what you should be eating and avoiding.
