    I have found natural sugars to be harder to stop taking.
    the quality of sugar they supply is quite strong, so please be careful how much you take.

    a dietician can help if you need advice.

    The how-to of achieving control of blood sugar varies for every person, but there are some common tips to follow that can help improve your numbers.
    Healthy blood glucose (or blood sugar) control includes steps like following a balanced meal plan, engaging in an active lifestyle with sufficient physical activity, and taking blood glucose-lowering medications as you need them over the years. You might also need other medications to control your blood pressure and lipids (cholesterol). Consider some additional lifestyle tips that can also help control blood sugar and improve overall health.
    Oatmeal can help control blood sugar -- but don't get the sweetened kind. Even though it's a carbohydrate, it's a very good carbohydrate. It has been suggested to add
    plenty of nonstarchy vegetables, such as broccoli, spinach, and green beans, to your diet. These foods are high in fiber and low in carbohydrates.
    Meats, which are high in protein, don't affect blood sugar as much as carbohydrates. When eaten in proper portions, fish, skinless chicken breast, and lean cuts of meat are good choices
    .
    Salmon is an especially smart option because it also contains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Meat is also a source of chromium, a mineral that enables insulin to function properly and helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates.
    Trying to break a sugary soda habit? Or just tired of guzzling diet sodas day after day?Go for sugar-free sparkling waters, Moore says. The carbonated beverages come in various flavors, including tangerine, grapefruit, and apple-pear. "They take away the desire for something bubbly," she says.Many sparkling waters have no carbohydrates or calories -- a boon not just for blood sugar levels, but weight control, too.
    Cinnamon has been in the news lately as a spice that may have insulin-like effects and help reduce blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.
    I hope that this has been a bit helpful to you. I wish you the very best!

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    if you are looking for reliable "fodmap" details.
    go to the website for monash university in Australia ......
    they are credited as discovering fodmap.
    and have quality information.

    I use them
