Day 184 – October 4th, 2017 Enjoying a lunchtime smoothie!!!

Good morning!! Well I haven’t had one, not even ONE heart palpitation since I quit the keto diet on Saturday. I know not every diet works for everyone but when it involves my heart you wanna bet I’m not fooling around! Onward bound. I am sitting here sipping on my second smoothie for today….happy and feeling good! I have incorporated better sweetening options into my smoothies as opposed to before where I thought I was using better sugar replacements but little did I know they still affected my blood sugar to spike. Not all sugar replacements are created equal. When you go looking for a sugarless sweetener in my opinion stevia is the best. Not everyone likes the taste of stevia but it doesn’t cause a blood sugar spike as long as it’s not mixed with something else. Great Value sells a powered stevia but it’s not solely stevia..it’s mixed with maltodextrin. I never knew the difference. Maltodextrin is high on the GI ratings therefore it does cause your blood sugar to spike. Be very careful of what you use to sweeten any of your foods and drinks, forever learning. I love learning the more I learn the better choices I can make. I may not make all the right choices all the time but little changes can affect your health in a very positive way!
