I often get asked what I think about juicing so I thought I would lay it out today. Blood sugar balancing is key for many health conditions. In fact, it's the base of what I do for most clients.
Whether you are a type 2 diabetic or have the some of following symptoms:
turn into Danny Devito because you get hangry if a meal is postponed or missed. You get headaches and/or shaky if a meal is missed
you crave sweets and/or carry extra weight at your middle
Complete the Questionnaire below and see if you have imbalanced blood sugars.
Benefits of Juicing
add a ton of extra nutrients
it takes only a few minutes a day to get the equivalent of a couple of pounds of veggies
nutrients are absorbed immediately and easily as there is no fiber slowing things down
an excellent part of cleansing
we live in a toxic world and your liver can only handle so much
it's very healthy to give your digestive tract a rest occasionally and juicing does that
How to Juice with a Blood Sugar Imbalance
Most juicing recipes use a lot of beets, carrots, and apples. These are very high in sugar and can really throw your blood sugars out of whack. So here are some tips to make sure you keep your blood sugar low.
juice more veggies and greens
keep the ratio about 80% non-sweet vegetables such as greens, broccoli, celery, cucumber, red peppers, etc..
juice your fruit separately and add only the smallest amount that you need
everyone can respond differently so the best way to know how your blood sugars are doing is to check your blood sugars. I teach this in my Beat the Triple F - Flab, Fog, & Fatigueprogram. You can find more information here.
stay away from carrots as a base
use lots of different veggies
use stevia to sweeten if it's not sweet enough
lemon also helps break down bitterness
I hope that helps you figure out how to juice when you are navigating blood sugar imbalances.
