Notes

Tips for Enjoying Juices and Controlling Blood Sugar Levels

  1. Focus more on vegetables than fruits when making juices. Generally, I've found that 80% vegetables and 20% fruits works quite well.
  2. Watch your portion size. I would say, start with a small serving and see how it affects your sugar control. Work with your diabetes educator to come up with a plan that works for you.
  3. Accompany your juice with some protein and/or fat. This will add bulk and will help to slow the absorption of the natural sugar in your juice and reduce the spike in your blood sugars.
  4. Keep well-hydrated. If you're not drinking enough water during the day, your blood sugars will spike more because you're blood will be concentrated with sugar.
  5. Get movin' because physical activity will help to bring your blood sugars down by clearing it from your blood and giving it to your exercising muscles to use as fuel.
