For example, though not limited to: Age Gender DNA Diet Exercise Normal blood sugar levels range between 3.9 mmol/L and 5.5 mmol/L. We are talking about blood sugar levels in a fasting state, i.e., when waking up after a night sleep and not having eaten yet. Do note, that based upon the above factors, this can differ without anything to worry about (i.e., it can be

Tip 1: Micro-engineering your meals Taking the same breakfast every day? In case of peaks, feel free to already engineer your meals a bit with some small, smart tweaks.. Fibers and fats can buffer the effects of the glucose uptake by your body. Oatmeal, for instance, is a carbohydrate that turns into glucose. Adding fat, like Greek yogurt, slows down the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream, thus promoting blood sugar stabilisation. Tip 2: Peak after multiple meals Seein
When should I consume carbs in relation to sports?
The short answer, it depends per person. Some people go well on sports without taking any carbohydrates, others rely on it. In the latter group, it can be beneficial to take them prior, after or even during the exercise. Carbohydrates feed the fast energy system in your body. You store glucose as glycogen in your muscles and liver, which can enhance your exercise performance. You can fill this system during the exercise, but also beforehand (dubbed 'carb loading') or afterwards ('carb backload
Engineering your meals
It could be, that your morning bowl of oatmeal gives you a spike in your blood glucose levels. What can you do, in terms of experimenting yourself? Some practical examples how to engineer your favorite dish: Change the portion size Add some different, or less fruits Swap honey, for a different sweetening agent (or learn how to eat less sweet) Try the meal on different times of the day. Your 'breakfast' might not be the best meal to 'break your fast' after a night sleep Add

Why does the same meal show a different glucose pattern?
If you test a meal under exactly the same conditions, you would roughly see the same pattern in glucose levels. However, these conditions are almost impossible to reproduce every day. A couple of things, why a meal can trigger sometimes a higher, or less high peak: You ate something before the meal, that had an effect on your meal. Especially when this contained fats or fibers, which promote a slow release of blood sugars You ate something after a period of fasting. This will create a p
