WE NEED TO CHAT ABOUT BLOOD SUGAR
The term "blood sugar" refers to the concentration of glucose found in our blood. It fluctuates throughout the day, even minute to minute. When we eat it goes . When we exercise or go too long without food it goes, leading to a fall in energy.
Why do we care?
The main reason is because chronically elevated blood sugar levels can lead to diabetes (which affects 1 out of 3 adults in the U.S.). But if you're not pre-diabetic this can also affect you by leading to fatigue, weight gain or weight plateaus and cravings. So that big gap between meals or that skipped lunch is likely hitting you harder than you realize.
FUN FACT: The total estimated cost of diagnosed diabetes (circa 2017) was $327 billion, including $237 billion in direct medical costs and $90 billion in reduced productivity.
