We are already in the second month of 2024.

And for those who set resolutions, goals, or intentions for the year…

Eating healthier…

Exercising more…

And losing weight are top contenders for most.

If that’s you…

Then I want to give you some tips to succeed with your health and weight loss goals in 2024.

Because the truth is…

Losing weight…

Eating healthier…

Or transforming yourself CAN be hard…

Unless you have the tools to succeed.

And that’s what Best of You has helped thousands of people do.

I think the most important tool you can have for your health is prioritizing nutrition.

It’s what I teach a lot about in Best of You…

Because the right nutrition can fuel your body…

And help you to feel great every single day.

Basically, in order for your body to function properly, it requires energy (or fuel).

You get this energy from the foods you eat.

There are various categories of food such as protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, etc.

And all of those types of foods can influence your blood sugar levels (or glucose/insulin).

Ideally, you want to eat foods that will keep your blood sugar fairly level throughout the day.

If not, continuous blood sugar spikes can cause a fluctuation in your insulin levels…

And cause lightheadedness and sugar “crashes”…

Even lead to serious diseases like Metabolic Syndrome.

So in order for your metabolism to be processing all of these types of foods correctly …

You need to understand what you eat is important…

But also HOW you eat is important as well.  

For instance, say you eat a banana for a snack one afternoon.

A banana is rich in carbs which may increase your blood sugar levels.

But if you pair that same banana with a handful of almonds…

The added fat, protein, and fiber can blunt the glucose response.

Now, you’re getting the best of both worlds…

The nutrients from the banana AND the nutrients from the almonds…

WITHOUT the increased insulin levels.

And if you want to go a step further…

The order in which you eat matters as well too.

If you have fats or protein before eating carbs…

This can also help curb the blood sugar impact.

So if you’re having a sweet potato and chicken for dinner…

Eat the chicken, which is high in protein, before you consume the sweet potato.

This helps your insulin from fluctuating too much while allowing you to obtain the nutrients from the chicken and sweet potato.

It’s really all about pairing the right types of foods together to avoid high blood sugar responses.

Your metabolic health is really important so if you’re wanting to transition your eating habits this year…

And focusing more on your nutrition …

Now you know what types of foods to eat to help your blood sugar response…

And really, your overall health.
