How can one of the most basic needs of the human body be something that you hate? Water is so crucial to our bodies but I hate it, I’m not sure why but, “I just hate drinking water!” Almost from the first sip in the morning my body starts feeling water logged, I feel bloated by lunch time and exhausted from the effort to down more before bedtime.
Approximately 60 percent of our weight is water and without water our bodies stop functioning properly. Water is crucial to our bodies and is used to transport oxygen, glucose and fat to our muscles, water helps in the detoxification of our organs, it helps to regulate body temperature and of course it helps in the elimination of waste.
There are many theories about the required amounts of water that we need to drink in a day to maintain a healthy body and since everyone is different we see a variety of daily amounts differing from person to person. The amounts varies on an average from about 104 ounces for men down to 72 ounces for women and increasing these amount when you exercise or live in hot climates.
For those of us that are carbohydrate loving Type 2 Diabetics the news that there is a net zero carb Shirataki Miracle Noodle on the market is next to heaven! Shirataki noodles are made from the konjac yam and Japanese have been eating variations of this so called miracle noodle for thousands of years but it has hit the USA and the impact has been fantastic.
The old saying, “If it sounds to good to be true then it is probably to good to be true,” doesn’t apply to Miracle Noodles they are:
- net zero carb free
- gluten free
- calorie free
- soy free
- fat free
- sugar free
- starch free
- GMO free
One of the things that I have had to regrettably give up due to my Type 2 Diabetes was frozen blended Chai drinks. But that ended a month ago with my rediscovery of Big Train’s Fit Frappe and it is great for diabetics! The biggest problem has always been the sugar content in blended drinks but Big Train takes their Fit Frappes to a new level of blended and hot drinks with a perfect blend of protein and carbohydrates.
Fit Frappe is made with casein protein smooth creamy taste unlike other whey products that usually leave us with a chalky protein aftertaste. Fit Frappes contain 20g protein, between 1 & 2g sugar, 5g fiber, only 3.5g of fat, 19 vitamins and minerals, and only 130 calories in a 16fl oz serving, with Fit Frappe you can use it as a meal replacement, a morning boost, or a mid-afternoon guilt-free snack.
Fit Frappe comes in three non-coffee flavors, (Chai, Chocolate, and Caffeine Free Vanilla) and three coffee flavors (Mocha, Espresso & Vanilla Latte) so there is a great variety to choose from.
Our day has finally come and the glucose supplement companies are providing us with a new product that we are more likely to grab off the shelf because of it’s creative design and the reward is the taste is also updated! Level Life Glucose Gel comes in five flavors: Mandarin Orange, Strawberry-Banana, Vanilla, Carmel and Green Apple.
Since Level Life Glucose Gel is already broke down into a gel substance, you will experience it’s fast acting end to your low blood sugar levels. They travel fine without refrigeration so you will always be more than ready for those alarming lows.
