People with diabetes are more likely to have fluctuations in their blood sugar levels. There are occasions when it can dip too low, and there are also moments when it can abruptly rise without warning. For a diabetic, both conditions could lead to a number of significant complications, making both equally fatal. When blood sugar levels rise over normal, it might be difficult to bring them back to normal levels by eating at regular intervals.
The following are four healthy strategies to get rid of extra sugar from the body, according to Healthline and WebMD:
Make sure your plate is well-balanced.
You'll need to eat a lot of fiber, protein, and healthy fat as you transition from a diet high in sugar. If you eat enough of these nutrients, you'll not only feel full after each meal but you'll also be able to control your blood sugar levels and meet your daily nutritional needs. Using the Plate Method, you may create nutrient-dense, well-balanced, and delectable meals.
2. Make sure you're getting enough fluids.
When your body is going through a detoxification process, staying hydrated is much more important than it is at any other moment. Toxins, waste products, and stagnation can be transported out of the body more quickly by drinking water, which aids in cleaning your system. Adding more fiber-rich plant foods to your diet means you'll need to drink more water to help your body handle the extra fiber you'll be consuming. To avoid constipation and maintain regular bowel movements while increasing your intake of fiber, you must also increase your water intake.
3. Regularly engage in physical activity.
As a part of your sugar detox, exercising frequently will not only help you sweat, but it will also help naturally enhance your energy and control insulin levels, which will aid in your overall detoxification. Increasing insulin sensitivity by shifting sugar into your muscles for storage was identified in a 2016 review. The effects can last for up to 48 hours.
Avoid worrying yourself out.
Crandall Snyder claims that when you're stressed, your blood sugar rises. For up to eight hours after experiencing stress, your insulin levels drop, hormone levels rise, and your liver releases more glucose into the bloodstream because of this, according to the University of California, San Francisco's Diabetes Teaching Center.
