    I recently bought a pack of organic, naturally sweetened keto diet-friendly power bars. As I typically do, I studied the ingredients portion of the packaging and noticed that the bars were naturally sweetened with something called monk fruit. Honestly, I had no idea what monk fruit was or if it was nutritionally sound and nutrient-dense. So, I did my research and discovered that monk fruit happens to be one of the best, low-sugar, naturally sweet, plant-based ingredients available! Unfortunately, many artificial sweeteners are filled with harmful chemicals, — such as aspartame, which has been linked to cancer — and others which have been linked to a higher risk of glucose intolerance and negative changes in gut bacteria, are filled with empty calories, and provide little to no nutrient value. This is where some natural sweeteners truly shine! With that said, they are not all created equal. Natural sweeteners such as maple syrup, agave nectar, and raw sugar provide some nutritional value, are oftentimes antioxidants, and may even be beneficial for your gut flora. Yet, they are oftentimes high in...
    Diabetes is a serious health issue that’s swept our nation for decades now. It is a chronic condition that causes a person’s blood glucose levels to become too high. People with diabetes often need to carefully manage their diet. There are different types of diabetes, and no two people with diabetes are the same for anyone. Although there isn’t a one-size-fits-all diabetes diet or lifestyle approach for everyone to follow, there are some tried-and-true tips that can help improve your life. The more we learn about health and diabetes, the more we understand that symptoms and health issues of both Type 1 and Type 2 forms of the disease can be managed. These healthy eating tips are general and can help you manage your blood glucose (sugar), blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. They can also help you manage your weight and reduce the risk of diabetes complications, such as heart problems and strokes, and other health conditions, including certain types of cancers. 1. Eat more non-starchy vegetables Incorporating more non-starchy vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, arugula, artichoke hearts, cucumber, eggplant,...
    BELLY fat burdens most of us and is often a key reason why people want to become healthier. It can feel like you’re doing everything you can to eat healthily and exercise and still, the chub won’t budge.  1Belly fat reduces when you lose weight generallyCredit: Getty But you’ll be surprised to learn there is one key trick you could be missing. Learning to manage your stress is vital, says Pippa Campbell, a Jersey-based nutritionist. She told The Sun: “Two big things I look for with new clients that suffer with belly fat are cortisol and insulin.” Cortisol is known as the main “stress hormone”, although it has a number of important roles across the body.  During tense or stressful times, cortisol is released. While small rises are normal, chronically high cortisol levels could become a problem. It’s been shown in research to promote overeating and increase appetite, especially for sugary and calorie-dense “comfort foods”.  This can lead to weight gain as well as anxiety, headaches, trouble sleeping and more. Pippa said: “The cortisol response was designed for killing a...
    A COMMON curry ingredient lowers high blood sugar in type 2 diabetics, a study has found. In people with this condition, blood sugar levels become too as, as the the insulin the pancreas makes can’t work properly, or the pancreas can’t make enough insulin. 1Saffron, a common curry ingredient, could help lower blood sugar a study foundCredit: Getty Experts suggest the rising rates is due to the obesity epidemic - a key cause of type 2 diabetes. It can be treated with drugs to keep blood sugar properly balanced, and many people can reverse their condition by adopting a healthy lifestyle. One study, published in the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences, found taking saffron regularly could help keep blood sugar lower in type 2 diabetics. 54 patients were divided into two groups to get either placebo or saffron extract capsules twice a day for eight weeks.

    Having high blood sugar in your thirties could raise your risk of Alzheimer's later in life, a study suggests. Researchers followed 5,000 adults throughout their lives, regularly checking their blood glucose and cholesterol levels.  Those with the highest levels of 'good' cholesterol in their 30s and 40s were 15 per cent less likely to develop Alzheimer's by the age of 70.  And high levels in middle-age were linked to even greater risk of suffering the cruel disease later in life.   Similar results were seen with higher resting blood sugar levels, but only for adults in their fifties. Researchers said while other studies have linked dementia to cholesterol and blood sugar, the findings illustrate that 'these associations extend much earlier in life than previously thought'. Dr Lindsay Farrer, of the Boston University School of Medicine, added: 'Intervention targeting cholesterol and glucose management starting in early adulthood can help maximize cognitive health in later life.'  Those with the lowest levels of 'good' cholesterol in their 30s and 40s were 15 per cent more likely to develop Alzheimer's by the age of 70....
    MILLIONS of people across the UK suffer with diabetes and it can be a difficult condition to live with. No matter how hard you try, at times it can feel as though you're fighting a losing battle when it comes to your diet. 1Being diabetic can be hard work and it means you're constantly having to keep an eye on what you consume Diabetics have to pay particular attention to what they consume as they need to keep their glucose levels at a normal range. With type 1 diabetes, a person’s pancreas produces no insulin. In type 2, cells in the body become resistant to insulin, so a greater amount is needed to keep blood glucose levels within a normal range. The NHS said that very high blood sugar levels can cause life-threatening complications such as diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) which can lead to a diabetic coma. With diet so high on a diabetic's priority list, one expert has revealed the five food diabetics should avoid - or at the very least, moderate in consumption. Speaking to The Sun Lifesum’s Dr Alona Pulde said diabetics need...
    KEEPING a healthy diet is one of the best ways to look after your health - especially if you're diabetic. Diabetics have to pay particular attention to their diets in order to make sure they aren't consuming too much sugar. 1Looking after your diet is key when it comes to managing and preventing diabetes and one expert has said that swapping out some foods could helpCredit: Getty Making sure you eat a balanced diet is a great way to keep your weight in check - as obesity is one of the biggest risks when it comes to diabetes. Obesity is believed to account for 80-85 per cent of the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and this is usually because obesity causes increased levels of fatty acids and inflammation. This can lead to insulin resistance which in turn can lead to type 2 diabetes. With type 1 diabetes, a person’s pancreas produces no insulin. In type 2, cells in the body become resistant to insulin, so a greater amount is needed to keep blood glucose levels within a normal range. The NHS has also launched various campaigns to...
    DIABETICS are constantly walking a fine line between keeping their blood sugar levels not too high and not too low. Research has found certain food and drinks that can help if you need to lower glucose levels, or bump them up slightly. 1Blood sugar levels are very important for diabetics, it's key to keep them balancedCredit: Getty - Contributor With type 1 diabetes, a person’s pancreas produces no insulin, but in type 2, cells in the body become resistant to insulin. This means a greater amount of insulin is needed to keep blood glucose levels within a normal range. A study published in the International Journal of Pharma and Bio Sciences looked into the effect a daily apple has, for people who struggle to keep their blood sugar down. It investigated the effect of the fruit on fasting blood sugar (the level following an overnight fast) and lipid (blood fats) levels in type 2 diabetics. Just under 100 people with the disease were split into two groups - one who would have an apple each day and another who...
    MANAGING your diet as a diabetic can be hard work and can sometimes feel like a full time job in itself. Constantly looking through the labelling of products and timing your meals can be tiring, but there are foods you can avoid to prevent your blood sugar spiking. 1Diabetes can be a difficult condition to live with and it's imperative that diabetics keep their blood sugar levels under controlCredit: Getty When you're diabetic your body can struggle to produce enough insulin or the insulin isn't effective. With type 1 diabetes, a person’s pancreas produces no insulin, but in type 2, cells in the body become resistant to insulin, so a greater amount of insulin is needed to keep blood glucose levels within a normal range. Even if you have a balanced diet, it can be hard to keep your levels in check. It's important that you don't cut any food groups, whether you have diabetes or if you're just trying to improve your diet. A balanced diet contains foods from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. It's also essential to understand that it's...
    Teenagers who stay up late are at risk of health problems such as diabetes because they eat more sugar when tired, a study has suggested. Researchers followed the eating patterns of young people over a week when they slept for 6.5 hours a night, and a week when they slept for 9.5. While they consumed roughly the same amount of calories during both phases, they ate fewer fruits and vegetables and more of the types of foods that cause a spike in blood sugar when they'd had less sleep. It meant that when the teenagers were tired they ate an extra 12 grams of added sugar a day on average – the equivalent of three extra teaspoons.

    HIGH blood sugar warnings come in many forms for people with diabetes - with two serious signs found in the mouth. Suffering with a dry mouth or "fruity" breath can be an indication you need medical treatment. 1Noticing different breath and needing to drink a lot is a sign something could need urgent attention Both are signs of hyperglycaemia - when blood sugar levels have spiked. More specifically it's a symptom of diabetic ketoacidosis, which can be caused by hyperglycaemia and high levels of ketones. This happens in diabetics when the body starts to run out of insulin, and harmful substances called ketones build up as fat levels are broken down for energy. It is more likely to affect type 1 diabetics, and can be life-threatening if not found and treated quickly. Symptoms also include needing to pee more than usual, tummy pain, confusion and feeling sleepy. The NHS describes the "fruity" breath as smelling like pear drop sweets, or nail varnish.

    THESE breakfast choice mistakes could be sabotaging your weight loss goals. If you’re feeling hungry within a couple of hours of eating, bloated or fatigued, it may be time to switch up your first meal of the day. 2Experts say cereal is not the best way to start the day because it is high in sugar and gives no protein or fat - except for a little in the milkCredit: Alamy Even if you can’t bear to part from your favourite breakfast, some small tweaks could make all the difference. And if you have a tendency to skip breakfast, it's not the end of the world, experts say, as long as you don't wait till your ravenous. The following blunders could be avoided: 1.

    DIABETES affects 4.9 million people in the UK and counting, with one in 10 adults expected to have it by 2030. The chronic condition needs careful management to avoid long-term complications, and this largely comes down to diet.  Getty 1 Oats are one of the foods that could help manage your diabetes Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin regulates sugar in the bloodstream. So without it, blood sugar levels get far too high. Diet is one way to keep blood sugar levels under control. But it can also do the complete opposite, with some foods causing a huge surge in blood sugar levels, sometimes for hours. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to eating with diabetes, but there are some general tips that most people with the condition can follow. This will help to keep blood sugar levels managed, weight healthy and reduce the risk of complications, like heart or kidney disease. These foods are among the best...
    AN unborn baby’s life was saved when his mum had a breakfast of jam on toast. Robyn Banson-Noond’s blood sugar levels spiked after she ate the high-sugar meal, worrying doctors at the hospital she was in. 1Robyn Banson-Noond’s blood sugar levels spiked after she ate the high-sugar meal, worrying doctors at the hospital she was in Tests showed Robyn was healthy — but critically also revealed her baby was being strangled by his umbilical cord and his heart rate was plunging. Robyn, 31, who had been on the ward since her waters broke at 32 weeks, said: “I still have nightmares about him dying. “If it wasn’t for my high blood sugars, I wouldn’t have been monitored and they wouldn’t have picked up on his heart rate dropping. “Then he wouldn’t have been delivered early and they wouldn’t have seen he had his cord round his neck.” Doctors had been considering sending Robyn home. But after her blood sugar spiked they decided to keep her in until it went down. When it didn’t she was raced for checks and...
    MANCHESTER, N.H. - Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan says he’s getting "very little push back" from fellow Republicans over his burgeoning effort to reboot what he hopes will be a post-Donald Trump GOP. Duncan spotlights that other Republicans have quietly come up to him and thanked him for "doing the right thing" and tell him "this means a lot for this country, this means a lot for this party." Georgia’s lieutenant governor made his comments in a national exclusive interview with Fox News and during an address to an audience at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on Tuesday, where Duncan kicked off the inaugural event to sell "GOP 2.0," the idea behind his new book and his evolving push to fix a Republican Party that he says has been damaged by former President Trump.

    A tax on sugary drinks cut the number of servings high school students drank every week, a new study finds. Researchers from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia looked at the link between sweetened beverage taxes and teens' consumption of soda and other soft drinks. They found the number of weekly sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) that adolescents consumed fell by close to 30 percent. The findings suggests that not only has the policy helped cut sales on fizzy drinks, but could be effective at combatting rising rates of childhood obesity.  Researchers from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia looked at the impact of the city's soda tax, which was implemented in January 2017, on teen consumption (file image) The weekly number of soft drinks per week fell from 5.4 prior to the tax to 3.9 per week after the tax, compared to non-taxed cities Berkeley, California, was the first U.S. city to tax SSBs, settling on a penny-per-ounce tax that went into effect in March 2015. One year after the introduction of the tax, sales of sugary drinks fell by 9.6 percent while their sales in...
    OUR sugar levels can change throughout the day, but keeping them under control is key - especially for people who have diabetes. If you're a diabetic and have high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia) then you might experience extreme thirst or hunger, as well as symptoms such as blurred vision and vomiting. 1Experts have revealed that pomegranate juice could help stabilise your blood sugar levelsCredit: Getty It can feel uncomfortable and you might also have a dry mouth and feel more tired than usual. Before you act on lowering your blood sugar levels, you need to first check them. Levels are different for everyone and people with diabetes will have a meter and test strips to monitor this. A normal level for someone without diabetes before a meal is 4.0 to 5.9 mmol/L. For people with type 1, type 2 and children with diabetes, this level is 4 to 7 mmol/L. If your blood sugar levels are high there are things you can do to lower it and researchers have now found that a small glass of juice could be just...
    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more Have you ever felt anxious, or jittery after eating or drinking? What you consume and how your brain functions are actually closely connected. If you are consuming the wrong foods, your brain can create a feeling of internal panic, and can trigger a sensation that feels like anxiety. Certain foods, especially the highly processed ones that are high in sugar increase inflammation in the body, and can produce blood sugar spikes. These spikes and drops can affect our mood, exacerbate feelings of anxiety and feel almost like a panic attack in some cases. If you feel like anxiety is impacting your life, it might be worth it to consider what’s on your plate. Let’s take a look at 10 foods and drinks that may trigger anxiousness: 1. Soda Soda is all sugar, and no nutrition. Not to mention that its sugar content makes it very addictive, and plays with your brain’s incentive/reward system. This can eventually lead to anxiety and depressive moods. The high amount of caffeine in soda and diet soda...
