Resistant Starch

Best source for Resistant Starch is Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch. Start w/ 2 TBL's for a day or two and increase to 4 TBL per day. After approx 2 weeks of doing this daily, your blood sugar will be lower...also lower after you eat occasional carbs. It takes a little bit for your body to adjust to the Potato Starch. Check out: diabetes-warrior.net. Scroll down to the Potato Starch Experiment. Steve Cooksey's diabetes story and diet are very informative.

Helping The Snacking Temptation

Sugar snap peas can be steamed, pureed or chopped up and added to salads, stir-fry, even a small serving of pasta. If you are looking to improve your health, sugar snap peas are good options to include in your diet....They are good to help control cholesterol and blood-glucose levels...they have 35 calories per 3-ounce serving, which is about 1 cup. They are high in vitamins and the fiber will help keep you feeling full and reduce your temptation to snack between meals.

Why cravings start!

Overweight means that your insulin doesn't work as well to control glucose levels. When you are insulin resistant ( and normal people can be insulin resistant at times) your body converts every calorie it can into fat, even if you’re dieting. It won't let you burn fat when you exercise....even if you exercise like wild! Too much salt boosts insulin, the hormone that tells the body to store fat. The more insulin, the more fat is stored and the more you gain. When blood sugar drops cravings begin.
