“It’s not just about supplements we take out of a bottle,” says Himalaya’s Grace Ormstein, MD, who holds a PhD in Nutrition. “Maintaining normal blood sugar balance also means being extra-aware of your diet and exercise too.”

Dr. Grace takes her cue from the National Institutes of Health when telling people what’s good to eat and not good to eat, when sugar hangs in the balance.

  • Limit foods that are high in sugar  
  • Eat smaller portions, spread out over the day
  • Be careful of how many carbohydrates you eat
  • Eat a variety of whole-grain foods, fruits and vegetables every day
  • Eat healthy oils from foods like fish, flax and chia seeds
  • Limit your intake of alcohol

All of these things, says Dr. Grace, are good, smart diet advice for all of us. Sweet, safe, sensible. That’s the way to go!
