Over the years, one of the most commonly asked questions we get is:

“What should I eat to lower my blood sugar?” Often people think they are eating healthy, but the foods they thought were healthy are actually raising their blood sugar.

That repeated question prompted us to create our Ultimate Food Guide which has been downloaded more than 10,000 times.

Because we’re constantly updating our resources, we wanted to break it down for you in this new video.

You’ll get an overview of the 3 macronutrients, learn how much protein to each eat per day and meal, a simple explanation of the different kinds of fats and carbs, and tons of food tables you can use when grocery shopping.

Even if you think you know this information, we’re sure you’ll glean a new insight or deepen your understanding about how to eat to lower insulin levels.
