Unicity Feel Great Community Tip: Eating for balanced blood sugar levels: 7 healthy alternatives to sweets

Regardless of whether you are fit and healthy or your doctor frowns at your blood sugar levels - we should all eat less sugar.

Diet, of course, plays a crucial role in healthy blood sugar levels and eating less sugar is just the beginning. When it comes to maintaining your normal, healthy blood sugar levels, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Consume healthy fats. Fat is the most efficient source of energy for our bodies and does not trigger an insulin response - crucial if you want to keep your blood sugar levels under control. Just make sure to eat unsaturated, "good" fats , like those in avocados, fish , nuts, beans and extra virgin olive oil.

  • Eat plenty of fiber . Fiber slows the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream, helping to control insulin and blood sugar levels.

  • Reduce (or eliminate if you can manage) added sugar. Too much added sugar over too long a period of time can chronically increase our blood sugar levels.

  • Eat healthy carbohydrates. That doesn't mean you should cut out carbohydrates completely. Complex carbohydrates, such as those found in many fruits, vegetables and whole grains, have a low glycemic index, so they don't cause your blood sugar levels to skyrocket.

  • Pay attention to portion sizes. Eating too much puts a strain on the body, from increased digestion time to increased blood sugar. Pay attention to your body's signals and stop eating when you are full.

Now that we know the basic rules, let's tackle the main problem for many people: eating less refined sugar.

Choose the healthier alternative

The radical solution – going completely sugar-free – is likely to backfire unless you are self-sufficient and/or have incredible self-control.

The rest of us are better off turning to smart alternatives to reduce sugar and support normal, healthy blood sugar levels - without missing out on the sweet treats.

Dessert → any fruit

The possibilities are almost endless! However, the alternative to dessert should also be really healthy - apple cake in exchange for chocolate cake does not count. Instead of cake or cookies, eat berries with (sugar-free) sweetened whipped cream, grapes or baked apples with cinnamon - these all satisfy your craving for sweets without added sugar.

Chocolate bar → dark chocolate

What is life without chocolate? It's good that dark chocolate is allowed in moderation - the higher the cocoa content, the better.

White bread → whole wheat bread

Whole grain bread contains much more fiber and other nutrients than white bread and does not have as much of an effect on blood sugar. The same principle applies to pasta: opt for whole-wheat pasta and brown rice when possible.

Sweet yogurt → natural yogurt with fruit

Yogurt is considered healthy, but pay attention to how much sugar it contains. The best solution is natural yogurt with naturally sweet fruit!

Juice → Water with a little fresh citrus juice

Yes, juice is usually made of fruit, but don't let that fool you: it contains a lot of sugar. This basically applies to most drinks, which is why water is the best choice for drinking. A splash of lemon or orange juice makes it particularly refreshing and aromatic.

Energy drink or coffee → Unimate

We all need a pick-me-up every now and then. For sustainable energy without a subsequent low, there is a healthy alternative to energy drinks like Unimate .

Sweet breakfast cereal → Unicity Complete

Have you ever wondered why you feel hungry again so quickly after eating your favorite cereal? All the sugar is digested quickly and will soon make you tired and hungry again. Try Complete instead to start your day! This protein shake already contains 100% of the daily requirement of many vitamins and minerals, tastes delicious and keeps you full for hours.

It's not about perfection

Nobody eats perfectly every day. Sometimes we treat ourselves or go out to dinner with friends - and that's okay. Especially if Unicity Balance supports you.
