Peanut Butter is Heart Healthy

The British Journal of Nutrition found those who ate peanut butter for breakfast had a smaller rise in blood sugar than a control group not given the PB. They said...PB reduces blood sugar jumps by slowing the bod's absorption of carbs. Portion control is the key. It is heart healthy and does not have artery clogging fats. Enjoy A slater on apple slices for breackfast..try Skippy's new Dark Chocolate PB for a treat....go for it.

Oatmeal...Feel Full

People who ate a warm oatmeal breakfast felt fuller four hours later than those who had cold cereal...the fiber in the oatmeal slows digestion and should keep you full until lunch.
Add 4 walnuts to protect you heart or flax seed. Berries for even more fiber. Steel cut oats are denser. Good Carbs.

Resistant Starch

Best source for Resistant Starch is Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch. Start w/ 2 TBL's for a day or two and increase to 4 TBL per day. After approx 2 weeks of doing this daily, your blood sugar will be lower...also lower after you eat occasional carbs. It takes a little bit for your body to adjust to the Potato Starch. Check out: diabetes-warrior.net. Scroll down to the Potato Starch Experiment. Steve Cooksey's diabetes story and diet are very informative.

If you are looking to improve your health, sugar snap peas are good options to include in your diet....They are good to help control cholesterol and blood-glucose levels...they have 35 calories per 3-ounce serving, which is about 1 cup. They are high in vitamins and the fiber will help keep you feeling full and reduce your temptation to snack between meals.

Why cravings start!

Overweight means that your insulin doesn't work as well to control glucose levels. When you are insulin resistant ( and normal people can be insulin resistant at times) your body converts every calorie it can into fat, even if you’re dieting. It won't let you burn fat when you exercise....even if you exercise like wild! Too much salt boosts insulin, the hormone that tells the body to store fat. The more insulin, the more fat is stored and the more you gain. When blood sugar drops cravings begin.
