Second week of the year, and hopefully you’re keeping up with healthy eating habits as your resolution – but there’s something you can be doing that’ll help you out even further – and it all depends on the order you eat your foods.
No matter what you do, eat starchy and sugary stuff last. There’s real science behind it – it helps if you don’t want your blood sugar to spike, especially important for those who have type-2 diabetes.
Eating starches allows your body to digest the sugar more gradually and can reduce blood sugar spikes by 75%.
The order to remember – vegetables and high fiber first, then fats and proteins next, finally carbs. Try it out for dinner tonight!
