Tips to Prevent Blood Sugar Spikes

A low-carb diet can help prevent blood sugar spikes and aid weight loss. Counting carbs can also help.

1. Go low-carb

Refined carbs have almost no nutritional value and increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and weight gain.

2. Eat Less refined carbs

Sugar causes an immediate blood sugar spike and high intake is associated with insulin resistance.

3. Reduce sugar intake

Being overweight makes it difficult for your body to control blood sugar levels.

4. Keep healthy weight

Exercise increases insulin sensitivity and stimulates cells to remove sugar from the blood.

5. Exercise more

Fiber can slow the absorption of carbs and the release of sugar into the blood.

6. Eat more fiber

Dehydration negatively affects blood sugar control.

7. Drink more water
