WHY STABLE BLOOD SUGAR MATTERS
Most traditional sports nutrition products are loaded with sugar, and athletes tend to consume too much of them. Overusing sugar and causing a spike & crash in blood sugar levels can have negative effects on your performance, recovery, health and longevity.
Here are several compelling reasons why we should all strive to keep our blood sugar at a stable and healthy level.
Poor metabolic fitness impairs brain function, energy levels, and memory while also increasing your risk of chronic disease. Stable glucose levels in a healthy range can help you improve your metabolic fitness.
Stable blood sugar levels keep your energy levels consistent throughout the day, allowing you to get more done both inside and outside of the gym. Plus, you won’t need sugary snacks to give you a boost of energy.
Fatigue is the inverse of performance. If your blood sugar remains stable throughout a training session, you are much less likely to become fatigued. This means you’ll be able to train harder for longer periods of time!
Maintaining stable blood sugar levels allows you to burn fat more efficiently. If, on the other hand, you have a large spike in blood sugar due to eating a lot of simple carbohydrates right before working out, your body will have to burn them off first.
Dips in blood sugar are frequently the cause of the afternoon slump and subsequent trip to the candy bowl or coffee machine. Keeping your blood sugar stable can help you avoid mindless snacking and curb midday cravings.
FOCUS AND COGNITION
When you’re hungry, your brain is depleted of glucose, resulting in brain hunger. Stable blood sugar allows you to release consistent energy to your brain, resulting in sharper focus, improved thinking ability, and increased reasoning.
Long, Active and Healthy Life
Current research shows that 88% of Americans are not metabolically healthy. While being physically active can help improve your metabolic fitness, alone it will not make you metabolically healthy. For an athlete, improving fitness will positively impact focus, performance and recovery. But more importantly, your level of metabolic fitness can determine your ability to live a long, active and healthy life.
An important way to take control of and improve your metabolic fitness is to eat and fuel with foods that help regulate your blood sugar.
