173: What are the best ways to stabilize blood sugar?

Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 173


Question: What are the best ways to stabilize blood sugar?

I would definitely be trying to lower the glucose response. And what I would do in such a situation would be to run a series of experiments on the type of carbohydrate, as well as the amount of carbohydrate, as well as the context of the meal to see. I would use that as the maximum and so define the carbohydrate load of the specific foods that you can tolerate within that range, and then once you have that, then you can experiment with other things like what happens if I add Apple cider vinegar to this regiment, what happens if I add whey protein, which can also help, what happens if I add glycine, which can also help.

The test is a great hint at what might be happening. But at the end of the day, what matters is what happens when you eat the meal you always eat.
