When seeking foods that lower blood sugar you should realize that these are the same foods you would consume if you were trying to lose weight. Going natural is the best way to accomplish both these goals.
As a matter of fact, losing weight will help you lower your blood sugar more than most other treatments.
High Blood Sugar Symptoms
The classic high blood sugar symptoms are frequent urination, hunger and thirst. Other symptoms include blurred vision, unexplained weight loss, unexplained fatigue, dry mouth, and poor wound healing.
Additional symptoms may include dry or itchy skin, male impotence, or frequent, recurring infections.
All of these symptoms do not have to be present if you have high blood sugar. Be sure by visiting your doctor and having a simple blood test to confirm the diagnosis.
Foods That Lower Blood Sugar
If you find you do have high blood sugar you’ll want to keep close watch on your diet. Your doctor or local hospital will have programs to teach you how to eat properly.
High blood sugar is not a condition to ignore or trifle with. It is very serious. Seek professional help as soon as possible and follow their instructions closely.
You should base most of the foods you consume on a raw vegetable diet. This will start you off on the right foot and keep you on track.
It also keeps everything simple.
The easier it is to remember what you are supposed to eat, and what you are to avoid, the better chance you will have of doing the right thing. Temptation to stray off your diet will be lessened because you will immediately recognize when you are cheating.
Eating raw food diets help you manage high blood sugar partly because of the raw food enzymes that are preserved by avoiding cooking. These enzymes are delicate and are destroyed with any exposure to heat. This is an important aspect of raw food diets.
Ask yourself, how closely does your current diet follow this plan?
It probably doesn’t follow it closely at all. Most of your foods are likely cooked before consumption. Being deprived of these raw food enzymes may be one of the factors that caused your high blood sugar in the first place.
It’s something to think about.
Healthy diet foods and a heart smart diet go hand-in-hand with an eating regimen designed to keep your blood sugar in check.

Therefore, whole grains such as oats are good items to eat on a regular basis. It’s only natural to eat the way you have been taught to eat since you were a child. However, the rules have changed as you aged.
You can’t (and shouldn’t) eat the same way you did when you were younger. You were young and uneducated. Now you know better.
If you are going natural and eat a healthy batch of oats for breakfast you will have to limit or eliminate the sugar you have traditionally added to your cereals. Don’t worry about eliminating sugar from your whole grain breakfast cereal when you begin changing your diet. If you do you will get discouraged and abandon your diet.
That’s not a good thing.
Instead, begin reducing your sugar intake slowly. Using crystalline fructose (NOT high fructose corn syrup…that’s bad stuff) or honey to sweeten your whole grain foods will allow you to slowly acclimate to your dietary changes.
Good diet foods do not have large amounts of sugar or fat in them. It is time to begin eating a good healthy diet before you suffer the terrible consequences of out-of-control blood sugar.
These are foods you should have been eating all your life.
Foods To Avoid
Fast foods are bad for you. This includes packaged foods, which often contain large amounts of sugar and unhealthy fats.
You also have to watch what you drink.
Many of the sodas and juices have more sugar in them than you would imagine. Learn to read the ingredients label on the side of packaged foods. Make sure you understand what these mean and don’t just gloss over them haphazardly. Your health and well being (as well as your life) will depend on you paying attention to the listed ingredients.
Water is best because it is what you body needs. However, unsweetened tea or decaffeinated coffee will help you add some variety to your drinks.
