Your blood sugar level is the amount of glucose in your bloodstream at any given moment and balancing it regulates hormones, increases metabolism and helps burn stored fat. Two of the smartest ways to achieve healthy blood sugar levels are: 1. Trying to eat a balanced meal of proteins, fats and carbs at each meal; and 2. Ensuring that you don’t go too long between meals, especially at the start and end of each day. The heart healthy rule of thumb is eating every three hours to keep your blood sugar levels in check. You don’t want them to ever get too high nor too low.
