Blood Sugar Regulation
By pairing fat with carbohydrates we slow the release of carbs/sugar from the digestive system. Carbs are easy to break down vs. fat.
The result is a more even release of glucose into the blood stream that supports consistent energy release and reduction of metabolic stress through-out the day.
Avoiding blood sugar spikes may help reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes and weight gain and inconsistent cravings and appetite pattern.
When eating Carbs only blood sugar will spike which is followed by a release of insulin.
This is followed by a drop in blood sugar which is a natural signal to the brain to eat again.
The combination of sugars and fats consumed as snack patterns have been proven to aid in weight management – appetite control – craving management – diabetic glucose regulation – extended cognitive clarity and focus.
