Eating Well

Eat to fuel your body not to feed your emotions.

Foods can be ranked on a Glycaemic Index (GI) scale, where foods with a high GI release glucose into the blood very quickly and cause an increase in blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels shoot up quickly, it impacts insulin production and how effectively insulin can regulate the level of glucose in your blood.

Over time, frequent blood sugar spikes and crashes can increase the risk of diabetes. Low GI foods release glucose slowly and steadily and provide sustained energy without a “crash”.

Managing blood sugar is the key to living well with diabetes and eating well is the key to managing blood sugar. But what does it mean to eat well? Simply put, eat healthy foods in the right amounts at the right times so your blood sugar stays in your target range as much as possible.
