If you’re someone who is struggling with fluctuating blood sugar levels, it’s time that you took a good hard look at what you can do to help get this under control.

Blood sugar highs and lows can make you feel miserable throughout the day because while you will experience more energy while on the high, you’ll feel miserable while you’re on the low. The low will make you crave more carbs, it’ll make you more irritable, and it may even cause you to become light-headed and dizzy.

So what foods best help to combat low blood sugar levels? Let’s take a good look at the main ones to know.

Vegetables

The first food that you must be eating to battle low blood sugar levels is vegetables. Vegetables are high in fiber and nutrients while being incredibly low in calories, so you can virtually eat an unlimited amount on your fat loss diet plan.

Oatmeal

Second, since you can’t cut all carbs entirely if you do plan to perform intense workouts, go for ones that break down and digest more slowly. Oatmeal fits the bill perfectly.
It contains no sugar and a high amount of fiber, so will help you feel great for hours at a time.

Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is the next food to be consuming regularly to battle fluctuating blood glucose levels. Cottage cheese is rich in a form of casein protein, which is going to break down and digest more slowly in the body over time. This protein will decrease the chances that you end up hungry a short while after the meal or snack it’s served with.

Almonds

Finally, almonds are the last must-have food for controlling blood glucose levels. Almonds contain healthy fats that prolong the time it takes to digest your food, helping it ‘stick to your ribs’ better between meals.

So there you have the top foods to consider eating if you want to control your blood sugar levels and manage hunger.
