How to make a Food Threesome

Food Threesome
This is a short, simple post about how to create your meals to keep blood sugar stable, and in turn keep your fat-burning system ON.

You’ve all heard the term “portion control” and to me that sounds like a rule and I don’t like rules so I’m just going to provide a method you can use for creating meals to stabilize your blood sugar. See my blog post about “Eating in Threes” here, that explains how to pair protein, fats, and carbs.

Print this out, cut it out and laminate it or cover it with clear packing tape and stick it in your purse/wallet or on your fridge as a reminder of how to make sexy meals!

In summary, here’s some tips about how you can keep blood sugar stable:

  • eating protein first takes longer to actually digest so will help reduce the effect of carbs on your blood sugar
  • eating fats second slows down the digestive process, and will add in the slowing of ¬†carbohydrate digestion
  • eating your carbs last (after proteins and fats) will give you the slowest digestion and therefore slowest release of sugar into the blood

If you want to learn more about blood sugar stabilization, you can read the book Body Confidence, by Mark MacDonald. Venice Nutrition is my certification, and the entire premise is on keeping blood sugar stable in order to #1. keep your body burning fat and #2. keep you from getting angry and  make poor decisions like eating an entire bag of chips/cookies, etc.

Eating small meals every 3-4 hours helps to keep your metabolism burning and prevents you from getting too HANGRY that you’re going to eat whatever is in front of your face!
