Quick medical lesson: Glucose is an essential fuel for body metabolism. Carbohydrates break down into simple sugars with most converted to Glucose. The liver also produces Glucose from sources such as lactic acid, other sugars and proteins.
If you get a standard blood test, glucose is one of the first factors reviewed. Most labs have a normal range of 70-115 mg/dl. Optimal range is 80-100 mg/dl. Ideal is 100 mg/dl. Many factors, food and specifically types of food, being at the top of the list, will influence blood sugar levels.
Here is where you want to takes notes. . . . THE key is to keep the glucose levels around that “magical” number of 100. When it spikes, the body has a tendency to store fat.

Limit your blood sugar spikes to twice a day. That is the number of times the pancreas is designed to release insulin also. So forget the 5-6 meals per day and pass on the chips and vodka.

Stick to the magic number of 100. Your body will love your for it.
