Setting Personal Goals To Lower Your Blood Sugar Readings

Diet and exercise impact blood sugar readings. A delicate balance of how much exercise and food to consume along with insulin dosage levels. This daily challenge can be better managed by setting food and exercise goals. An innovative way to set your goal is to establish severe consequences for not doing what you tell yourself to do. For example if you don’t believe in the second amendment known as the bearing arms agreement, you must donate to their cause if you fail to do what you said you would do. A Me vs. Me scenario. Mark Adams describes the process: Many of the video viewers have great questions and feedback to explore such: or He talks about being more mindful of your behavior. See the triggers, behaviors and rewards you receive. Be curiously aware of your body. Be aware of the body sensations that come and go.. Read more »

Excess fat promotes for increased insulin that, in turn, promotes for even more fat..

Insulin resistance is a common feature in patients who are obese or who have metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes. Insulin-resistant patients require higher than normal amounts of insulin to maintain normal blood glucose concentrations. The development of insulin resistance is complex, and many of its mechanisms are poorly understood. However, a common denominator in insulin-resistant patients is excess fatty .

How to avoid high blood sugars in the morning

You wake up. Lay in bed for a few before getting your booty up to go kill the workday and accomplish big things. Check your blood sugar. 115 (6.3 mmol/l) stares back at you. You smile to yourself: life is good. Forty minutes later, when you sit down to eat, your CGM gives you a “high” notification, and you’re 180. You have eaten NOTHING. All you’ve done is prepare for the day and prepare food. Now you face the grim potential of chasing your sugars all day long. Read more »

Intermittent Fasting Strategy – 16/8 Strategy

Hoda Kotb explains how she’s doing intermittent fasting- 16/8 routine. What exactly is 16/8 intermittent fasting? Intermittent fasting (IF) itself is simply eating within a certain daily window of time and fasting outside of that window. There are several different types of intermittent fasting but the16/8 method is typically the most common. Those who partake in IF often describe their routine by breaking up 24 hours into when they are consuming food versus when they are not. For example, the number of hours fasted followed by the eating window hours. So, 16/8 fasting means eating within a window of eight hours each day — such as from 12pm to 8pm — and not eating during the remaining 16 hours. The windows can vary based on the individual. Someone might only eat within a six-hour window (18/6) or four-hour window (20/4). Intermittent Fasting and Ketosis One of the best things about […] Read more »

Using Anaerobic Exercise to Reduce Insulin Resistance by Reducing Visceral Fat

If you want to reduce visceral fat, don’t exercise at a constant pace. Interval training will benefit you whether you’re trying to get fit or lose weight, and whether you’re a weekend warrior or a high-performance professional athlete. Interval walking is one of the most convenient exercises. It doesn’t require any special equipment and can be performed anywhere. Weight training with only short periods of rest between sets (one minute) is one of the best all-around exercises, in my opinion. The anaerobic aspect of weightlifting causes muscles to fatigue rapidly. And don’t forget kettlebells, which also cause an anaerobic burn. Finally, exercising first thing the morning before breakfast can make a tremendous difference. I exercise immediately after my morning protein shake. Exercising before eating anything might be a little better, but the main problem comes from consuming carbohydrates. If you start exercising with a belly full of carbohydrates (or one […] Read more »
