Planning meals & eating more frequently

It has really helped me to plan my meals in advance and pack food to being with me to work. I eat 4 - 6 smaller meals thoughout the day rather than just a big lunch and dinner. The benefits? More control with my bs & successful weightloss!

Have you tried Kefir?

Kefir is a great source of minerals like calcium & magnesium, & phosphorus, which helps the body utilize carbs, fats and proteins for cell growth, maintenance & energy. You can try Kefir over fruit or cereal, in your morning smoothie, or straight from the bottle..there is even Frozen Kefir. Kefir contains different types of beneficial bacteria than does yogurt, but tastes almost the same....it is also easier to digest and helps with fatigue. Has vitamins and minerals,protein..a good probiotic.

Be Prepared

I have found that if I prepackage my snacks (carrot sticks, any cut up fresh veggies), cut up fruit, cheese cubes, etc., I have a better chance of keeping my Blood Sugar regulated. No More Digging thru the cabinets for something to Snack On !!!! emoticon

The First Step is the Hardest !!!

A Little Exercise Goes A Long Way!

When I'm feeling sluggish and don't feel like getting a workout in, I tell myself I can squeeze in 15 minutes. Just a 15 minute walk. When I get on the treadmill, it often turns in to a 45 minute jog. The hardest step is the first.

Kale

Kale can slow the release of glucose to prevent insulin spikes...spinach and kale mixed together with olive oil and garlic can be stir-fried for additional benefits. Top with sesame seeds to lower your cholesterol.
