10 Things that Affect your Blood Sugar, besides sugar...-1️⃣Insulin--is the key to getting sugar into the cell, insulin is released to lower blood sugar (BS) levels-2️⃣Potassium-has insulin-like effects, which helps sugar get into the cell, which can help lower BS.-3️⃣Cortisol--In the absence of sugar, cortisol breaks down your tissue and converts it into glucose to elevate BS levels. AKA Gluconeogenesis-4️⃣Glucagon-Promotes the breakdown of glycogen into glucose in the liver, elevating BS levels. AKA Glycogenolysis-5️⃣Adrenaline--Through both glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis adrenaline can elevate BS levels-6️⃣Thyroid-hypothyroidism can create low and high blood sugar levels. Thus, thyroid can help regulate BS levels.-7️⃣Your health-If you have high fat the blood (diabetic, metabolic syndrome, some cancers), your body will have a harder time utilizing sugar, thus sugar will remain in your blood longer--creating high blood sugar-8️⃣Your diet-consuming sugar by itself will elevate sugar FASTER that sugar consumed with fats and proteins. 9️⃣PUFAs- A high PUFA diet can elevate FFA in the blood, leading to elevated BS levels.-🔟The type of Sugar-fructose has little affect on BS, while glucose will elevate blood sugar levels-Yet, what are we told if someone has HIGH blood sugar levels?-STOP ingesting sugar. 🤨-How does this make sense?-👉Like cholesterol and salt, sugar becomes the easy target, because it is the "thing" that is elevated in your blood. Yet, there are so many other factors that could be contributing to elevated blood sugar. So why only focus on one?!!??-👉Your blood sugar levels can shift by a number of things including hormones, minerals, your diet, types of sugars and your health. To focus on ONLY sugar makes no sense!-Yet, our anti-sugar crazed society does it all the time.-The question is, is there a smarter, healthier, safer way to treat HIGH blood sugar levels?-Tune in Monday when I discuss the MAIN culprit for HIGH blood sugar and what you can do regulate your BS. ...

I am not sure who needs to hear this, but...-👉"Personal importance or taking things personally, is the maximum expression of selfishness because you make the assumption that everything is about "me". -👉Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world form the one you live in."--Don Miguel Ruiz-There are three very common words being used in today's culture, that are supporting a world of self importance- "I am offended".-It seems you can not say or do anything anymore, without offending someone. Yet, what you have to realize is if you are taking offense by someone else's words or behaviors, you are making their actions/words about you. And guess what, their stuff is not about you--it is about them. You get to decide if you want to make it about you and become offended. -If you want to save yourself hours/days/weeks/lifetime of pain, anger and hurt then stop taking things personally. Hint--taking things personally does not help you grow or become a better human--in fact, it will do the opposite. -When you stop taking things personally, you are immune to people's emotional garbage. You understand their behavior is about them and not about you. When you stop taking things personally, your heart becomes open and your life becomes free, as you know you can not be hurt by other peoples words or behavior.-DO. NOT. TAKE. THINGS. PERSONALLY. ❤️🧡💛💚💙-PS. The book, "The Four Agreements" is literally my favorite book in the world, outside of my own. 😉 If you do not have this amazing book--BUY IT!Best $6.00 you will every spend.www.amazon.com/gp/product/1878424319?ie=UTF8&tag=katedeering47-20&camp=1789&linkCode=xm2&creative... ...

🔹Four BIG reasons Why Carbs/Sugars are so Important!!!🔹👉Brain PowerGucose is the preferred source of energy for almost every cell in the human body. Glucose is the brain’s main source of energy. In fact, your brain can use up to 1/2 of your consumed/stored glucose. The more you think, the more glucose your brain will need. Without carbohydrates you may feel light-headed, scattered, and forgetful. *The red blood cells and cells of the retina can only use glucose as energy since these cells lack a mitochondria.👉Muscle PowerGlucose is needed for quick muscle energy. Muscle glycogen (stored glucose) is needed for quick energy, especially when weight training and sprinting. If your body is depleted of muscle glycogen, your body will utilize your own muscle, tissue, organs, and fat to provide energy to your muscles while under stress (exercising). *It is important to note that, at rest, your muscles preferred source of energy is fat. Increasing muscle mass is a good argument for helping reduce fat, since the more muscle you have the more fat you will burn at rest. Burning fat at rest is the safest way to get rid of stored fat, since it produces less oxidative damage.👉Thyroid FunctionFor proper metabolism, glucose is needed by the liver to convert thyroxin (T4) to the active triiodothyronine (T3). T3 is needed by all the cells to produce ATP (energy). Without adequate T3 you will have decreased cellular function (slower metabolism). *People on low-carbohydrate diets are notorious for having low body temperature and decreased cellular function. This is attributed to the low intake of carbs (sugars), which will contribute to lower T3 conversion and lower metabolic function.👉Liver DetoxFinally, the liver needs glucose to help with proper detoxification. Low levels of stored glucose (glycogen) will encourage a sluggish liver. This is why fasting and detox programs that restrict carbs (fruits, juices, milk) make NO sense. These programs may help clean out your colon, but they hinder the performance of your liver. The liver is your main detox organ. If you hinder the liver’s performance, how can it detox properly?Do. Not. Be. Afraid. Of. Carbs. ... See MoreSee Less

Carbohydrates/Sugars-🍎🍐🍊🍌🍉🍇🍑🥭🍒🥔🥕🌶🍍🍠🥛🍯🥝🍆🍓🍅🧉-What you need to know.-1️⃣. Carbohydrates are your primary source of energy. Consuming the right carbohydrates is needed for a high metabolic rate, increased CO2 levels, decreased oxidative damage, good brain function, muscle energy and recovery, and detoxing the liver.-2️⃣. Simple sugars like fructose, glucose, sucrose, and lactose are your best sources. These include: fruits, honey, milk, white sugar, fruit juices, and root vegetables.-3️⃣. Carbohydrates should never be eaten alone. Always combine carbohydrates with a fat and protein (e.g., fruit and cheese, eggs and OJ, and milk and honey).-4️⃣. Low-carb dieting, although effective for quick loss, long term will lead to fatigue, sugar cravings, sleep issues, hormone issues, muscle wasting, and weight gain.-5️⃣. When adding sugars back into your diet, start slowly. Even the right sugars, added in too quickly, will lead to weight gain, bloating, and hormonal issues.-Keep it simple people.-For more information on the foods you can use to heal:Check out my book, "How to Heal Your Metabolism"Here:www.amazon.com/How-Heal-Your-Metabolism-Happiness/dp/1511585625/ref=as_sl_pc_tf_til?tag=katedeeri...Audio Here:www.audible.com/pd/B0899JF5RN/?source_code=AUDFPWS0223189MWT-BK-ACX0-198204&ref=acx_bty_BK_ACX0_1... ...
