Take a walk after meals.

Abundant research shows that getting your muscles working and your blood pumping can keep blood sugar levels low.  


Try a sugar substitute.

Doctors and dietitians have long touted zero-sugar sweeteners for people with diabetes—but they have a reputation for being less satisfying than the real thing. 


Enjoy oatmeal for breakfast

 A 2020 study in the journal Nutrients, increasing consumption of soluble fiber in a meal can keep your blood glucose from spiking. 


Set a consistent bedtime.

Getting less than seven hours of sleep per night can increase your insulin resistance and make you hungrier the next day


Drink Water

The more water your kidneys have to work with, the better they can flush out excess sugar in your blood, drinking more water reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.  


Choose dark chocolate for dessert.

Desserts aren't totally off the table for people with blood sugar issues. One of the best options is a rich treat just about everyone loves: dark chocolate. 


Exercise regularly 

Exercise increases insulin sensitivity and helps your muscles use blood sugar for movement. This can lead to reduced blood sugar levels. 


Eat more fiber 

Eating plenty of fiber can aid blood sugar management. Soluble dietary fiber appears to be more effective than insoluble fiber for this purpose.
