Low Carb Meals are Good for Diabetics

Best Meals for Diabetics are Low in Carbs

By Georgina Armand

There is plenty of medical evidence showing that low carb meals help diabetics to improve blood sugars. This makes sense intuitively because carbohydrates are broken down by the body into sugars, and directly leading to lower levels of blood sugars. The low carb diet is the one composed of mostly low carb meals to help manage and stabilize blood sugars and helping diabetics live a fuller and balanced life. 

 

 

Focus on How to Carb

Most people suffering from diabetes tend to focus more on the doses of medications (insulin) they would be needing to take after a meal.  But instead, a question all diabetics should be pondering more often before every meal time, is:  How much carbs should I take with my meal?

Is perfectly understandable for a diabetic to fear the risks of having a sock, so the normal is to count the parts of insulin or medication to counteract the risk of dangerous levels in their blood sugars.

Therefore, to avoid danger, the ‘ how much insulin should I use’  is what a diabetic person is most often taught to do when they are first diagnosed, and seldom the “how much carbs should I take with my meal”  

 

 

Carb Correctly and Live Healthier

Sadly, not engaging the best low carb meals for diabetics only leads to more medication and future complications.  How to carb correctly is hard, probably because Carbs are not always considered thoroughly, but vaguely. Most people do think, though, that by having fewer sugars in each meal mean we end up with fewer blood sugars.

While this is somehow true, is actually a little more complex than just reducing the sugary carbs in our meals.  Carbs behave differently depending on the source and how well we portion these to compose a low carb meal that won’t spike our glucose levels in the body. 

For those with type 2 diabetes or recently diagnosed with type 1, fewer carbohydrates in each meal mean that your body’s current insulin production will have an easier time processing your blood sugars if you only eat low carb meals. 

 

 

Diabetes is to Epidemic Levels 

The epidemic of this disease is of national proportions and statistically, we might hit 54% per cent of the world’s population by the year 2030.  Engaging a diet composed mostly of the best low carb meals would greatly delay the onset of this disease on a population already at risk due to the current lifestyle and obesity. 

 

 

Low-Carb Meals are Good for You

For those with pre-diabetes or in their primary stages of the disease is especially important to choose only low carb meals throughout the day. But not all low-carbs meals are equal, and never confuse a low-carb meal with a low-calorie one.

If you take insulin, you would also benefit from a low-carb diet as you will have a much easier time taking the appropriate amount of insulin if you manage well your carbohydrate intakes.

 

 

Never Say Never to Carbs

Is important to note fewer carbs doesn’t mean any carbs at all but rather counting your daily grams of carbs per day and to distribute them throughout the day into low carb meals to stabilize glucose levels in the blood.

Carb distribution throughout the day is essential in maintaining proper blood glucose levels, whether you are, or not, a diabetic, or if you are struggling with insulin resistance, a low carb diet will greatly benefit. 

Counting carbs can be draining and frustrating at times when you have diabetes.  But today there are tools and services to help you plan better your low carb meals and manage your glucose levels.

DETOX WITH FITBITES

cleanse

 

Radiant health begins at the cellular level.

Detox With us for total health improvement! 

 

The principal of a detox diet is to organize your internal house; more like when you do a spring cleaning for a fresh new start.  A detox diet should serve progressively to detoxify each organ and gland  and therefore strengthen your immune system. A well done detox plan will set you free from accumulative toxins and liberate you from stubborn fat that carries much of the toxins that normally we have accumulate from years of eating commercial processed foods, taking medication and other environmental pollutants. But not all detox plans are created equal and not all fit one size, that's why we created our FITBITES DETOX plan. 

What is a FITBITE DETOX Plan?

It's a one week, two week or a full month plan designed according to your needs. Whether you are trying to jump start your metabolism for a successful weight-loss plan,  or strengthen your immune system, we at FITBITES take serious steps toward a personalized Detox Meals and juicing.  

We hold to best detox practices, so we like to follow the Hippocrates Principal for the healing and well-being of our customers. Nevertheless, if you have your own detox plan in mind, let us know.

Detox for the First Time 

Anyone might feel anxious at first when engaging a detox plan; while is normal to worry about if you'll feel hungry or not, a more common trait of the anxiety that affects first timers,  is whether we can survive the detox out of pure human determination and willpower.  

 

Worry no more! We design to avoid the hunger and cravings that makes diets so hard to stick with. Backed by science, the denser the nutrients in a detox plan, the less hungry a person will feel and the cravings slowly fade.

 

We offer a 28 day detox plan adapted to every beginner or person that has never engaged a detox diet. We start gently and finish with a  stronger cleanse, around day 15 of starting the DETOX PLAN.

How Deep is your Cleanse? 

Our 28 days comprehensive plan is broken down into weekly goals:

Week 1: Digestive system detox

Week 2: Gentle liver and kidney cleanse

Week 3: Gland cleansing

Week 4: Total blood detox

We offer a customized detox plans, meaning that for our FITBITES Detox you choose the amount of weeks you want. No hooks or no compromise with us, but with yourself.

Our ultimate plan lets you choose how deep is your cleanse.

We provide all meals and juices with our services. We deliver twice a week to ensure freshness of all our slow cooked or raw ingredients. We never take the short cut with health. When you purchase any of our detox weekly plan we will monitor your needs and deliver recipes that comply with the following detox principles:

  1. Correct mixology of the ingredients to make all creations as tasteful has possible.
  2. We use the principals of Dr. Max Gerson and The Hippocrates Institute.
  3. Adjust all nutritional plan specifically for your body. For your personal needs.

 

Radiant health begins at the cellular level.

Detox is all about been radiant inside and outside! 

It has been proven that consuming dense nutrient rich foods, restores health from free radicals in our body.  The free radicals are the leading cause behind every disease, including cancer. During a detox  diet, even if we can not see the changes at cellular level, our cells are changing and restoring our health; this happens in our body if we detox properly, of course, with plenty of nutrient rich vegetables and specially greens.

DNA repair is something that will happen eventually through time, but what's important is that by undergoing a personalized detox plan at least twice a year, you are giving your system the chance to preserve the DNA healthy or even change it if it needs to adapt to new environmental changes.  

What FITBITES DETOX PLAN is all about

  • Raw and fresh vegetables, and just as with our other Lifestyle Ready Meals, we offer always local environmental.
  • Micro-nutrients density, we focus in food ingredients, not in supplementation. We make sure you get more of the nutrients you need.
  • We are food savvy, so we will work around your specific to target your healing needs with nutritional foods, from scratch, fresh and right to your door. 

 The Joy of Eating Vegetables 

Lets face it, if you don't like the taste of vegetables, then you are better off on our Ketogenic Lifestyle. So if you are the kind of person that likes to eat all kind of veggies, then you will never want to exist our DETOX PLAN and you might want to start with us a Vegan Lifestyle. 

We cook raw, spiced, hearty, juicy, hot, crunchy, nutty and eclectic.

What to Expect From our 28 day FITBITES DETOX Plan?

  • A first week try of our 28 day DETOX PLAN. This is to test your level of acceptance, to get a glimpse and feel of the taste, and to make a decision on whether you want to continue on Detox or switch to another diet.
  • A welcoming email with instructions on how to follow appropriately the detox.
  •  3 freshly-pressed juices, 3 lunches and 3 dinners with every delivery (we deliver twice a week)
  • We offer full support with our plan. 

How much does a FITBITE DETOX Plan Cost?

If you purchase a one week DETOX PLAN with us, we will make 2 charges of $150 each and a one time delivery charge of $7. You can choose to pay in advance if you would like to continue for a second week to experience a deeper cleanse. Regardless of the diet or meal plan you order, we deliver first your meals, and then, through an invoicing system we will send you a receipt. 

 

 

Effective Weight loss with Permanent Results

Achieve Permanent Results with Low Carb Diets

Restricting carbs not calories, is the path toward permanent weight-loss.  How many times have you lost weight intentionally and then gain it all back again? Achieving permanent results on low calorie diet is pretty much unrealistic, same applies for all those crash diets promising fast weight-loss. 

Low calorie diets also pose some risks of metabolic damage. We know permanent results are hard to achieve, but success is actually possible with low carb diets.  Low carb diets rules out many of the bad carbs we are accustomed to, leaving us with fewer food choices and more options to choose better hearty foods to fulfil our daily meals and help us to effectively manage weight and our health.  

 

An effective weight-loss plan requires clean, nutritious and lean foods for your diet.

 

Low Carb Diets Vs Low Calorie Diets

Traditional diets are calorie deficient. Cutting the calories off a diet requires less consumption of fats, but the sugars naturally present in the carbs are typically forgotten when dieting. This method of cutting out the fats in our foods makes sense, since there are 9 calories per gram of fat, the highest in all of the macronutrients.

Because most of the calories are concentrated in the dietary fats, it is also more convenient for nutritionist to write or prescribe a diet by just choosing foods low in  fats to cut in calories, and not low in carbohydrate foods, cause otherwise we will be seeing less food in our plates! 

Another downturn of low calorie diets, is that it also tend to be less nutritious, awakes a craving behavior and ruin our progress toward reaching any desirable health goal or weight-loss goal. 

 

The Low Carb Diet is Best for Weight-Loss

A low carb diets is an effective way to lose weight and to control our health.  An important study of low-carbohydrate and low-fat diets in obese adults found that restricting carbohydrates resulted in decreased food cravings, and some restriction of fats resulted in decreasing the cravings for fatty foods; this meant a better control in reducing the intake of high caloric foods. 

Starving on a Low Calorie Diet

When calories drop too low, the human body goes into what’s commonly called starvation mode, but healthcare professionals call it adaptive thermogenesis, this means, the body adjusts the number of calories it burns based on loss of calories consumed. Thermogenesis is what we want to achieve consistently throughout, day in and day out. 

The problem with low calorie diets, is that thermogenesis works for a short period of time; works at the beginning of the diet and right  after we push our body to exercise. For the rest of the time, the body makes sure to preserve body fat under the skin as long as long as possible if you are on a low calorie diet. Is mostly how the human body is designed for survival. 

 

We need calories (energy) to burn fat. 

FITBITES Ready Meals is Designed to Burn Body Fat

Basically, we need to think in training our body to burn more calories, not less; regardless of our level of physical activity. Here is how FITBITES cooks to make you burn more calories. 

First, the micronutrients normally found in wholesome FITBITES meals helps in maintaining cravings under control. Second, we restrict the total carbs in our meals to help you maintain good level of thermogenics (the body’s capacity to burn fats). Don’t worry, we only restrict the bad carbs. Then finally, we make sure you get enough protein to get you feeling great every day all day. 

 

FITBITES wholesome delicious unprocessed meals make the best plan for an effective diet with long term results. 

 

Effective Weight Loss with Permanent Results

We often see a diet as an effort we need to do for a long period of time. We also dread the sacrifice it involves when giving up on our favorite dishes.  Others see it as an endless tasteless effort and of time consuming weekend preparations. Our expectations of weight loss might also sabotage our progress when we don’t have realistic goals.   All this puts on stress on us and many a times we are giving up even before we even start our new diet for weight-loss. But in some cases we want to give all our intentions to willpower and we do it!   Willpower is a good start, but seldom lasts long enough, especially if our body is starving on a low calorie diet. 

 

Weight-loss Diets can deliver permanent results if  it can consistently be sustainable

 

Dieting and The System of Failure

We all want to be consistent with our diet, but our minds are already set for it to believe is hard to follow through.  Relying only on willpower is the hardests thing to do, because biologically, our body will be constantly demanding for whatever is missing. But worry no more; a well planned diet can bring success and help anyone stay lean long after we have reached our ideal weight.

When we consistently diet for a period of time on a low calorie diet, we tend to fight cravings thoughts to avoid giving in the temptation of eating a juicy steak for example, or any other foods that is not allowed in our diet. We never want to give in and crave. This is the reason we often see a diet as hard to follow because of the cravings, or the whole feel of it. If dieting doesn’t give us the results we want, we often feel we have failed trying to get in shape or in keeping the results of weight-loss that we may have achieved through lots of effort and sacrifice.  

 

People don’t fail at dieting to get in shape or lose weight. People fail at planning strategically their diet for success.

A Delicious Recipe to Boost your Testosterone

Testosterone is the main male sex hormone, but females also have small amounts of it. Having optimal levels is important throughout adulthood and even during old age.

Healthy testosterone levels are important for both men and women. Therefore, everyone should take the necessary lifestyle steps to optimize testosterone levels. You will improve your health and body at the same time.

We present you our unique Shrimp Coco-Cari recipe. If you love shrimps, you will love this Asia fused flavor and all its health benefits.

coco-cari-post-pq

We made this rich recipe, to enhance the natural ability of the body to increase their testosterone levels., and here’s how we created it.

How we did it?

Besides clean and loaded with 40 grams of protein from sea shrimps, we use pure virgin coconut oil, preservative free coconut milk and lots of  organic curry and turmeric.

How this recipe increases your testosterone levels?

  1. Paleo-worthy coconut can not only help your diet taste like a tropical vacation, it can also keep your T-score at healthy levels. That’s because the giant nut is a source of saturated fat, which plays a role in testosterone production. In a study published in “The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism,” investigators found that healthy males who switched from their regular high-fat diet (13 percent saturated fat) to a low-fat diet (5 percent saturated fat) saw significant decreases in their testosterone levels. (1)

    Physique-minded individuals can obtain up to 10 percent of their calories from saturated fat to help keep testosterone at its peak without any major concern over increasing your risk of getting fat.  Not to worry with our Coco-Cari recipe.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
  2. Seafood like shrimp is rich in vitamin D, and researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston found that men and woman with higher levels of vitamin D also had higher levels of testosterone. (2)  These findings may help explain why a study in “Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise” reported that men and women with higher blood levels of vitamin D tend to have stronger upper- and lower-body muscle strength.(3)  So, the upshot is that if you want to build strength and muscle like a pro, it’s best not to take your vitamin D intake lightly.Unfortunately, many people have inadequate vitamin D levels during the winter gloom, which could cause your testosterone levels to take a nosedive, but we are here to help.

Try our new Coco-Cari recipe available in all three carb controlled Lifestyles

Are you a big guy? We will load this recipe with plenty of complex carbs or simple Jasmine rice if you are in the need to replenish yourself after workouts. Try our Extreme Lifestyle.

Are you on your quest to losing weight? We will make sure you don’t lose your hard earned muscles but keep you lean. Try our Slender or our Active Lifestyle.

Top 3 Seasonal Diet Foods in our Ready Meals

For most, the dreaded holiday weight gain seems inevitable. Dark, cold nights and short sunless days make it all to easy to skip the gym and comfort foods seem all too tempting.

This year can be the year you break the annual tradition of piling on the holiday pounds. Why not stay ‘Slender’ until summer rolls around again?

So if you’re fighting the food battle each winter, not to worry! I am going to tell you our top 3 favourite diet foods for this winter season. All included in our frozen prepared FITBITES Ready Meals. Also, feel free to comment in our social media with your favourite meal recipe and share your own tips for staying slim this season. It it always great to hear personal experiences from our clients.

Brussels Sprouts

brussel-sprout

Ok, I am going to put it straight out there. I know these little fairy cabbages are often a bit difficult to accept for most people, yet they are an incredible food to help you stay slim!

We all know how important protein is both for maintaining muscle mass when working out as well as keeping cravings at bay in your diet. Did you know that those little green cabbage balls on your FITBITES’ Ready Meal have over ½ a gram of protein per sprout! Also each one is only about 10 calories.

Protein keeps you fuller for longer but you consume less calories! Perfect! Obviously frying them in butter with bacon isn’t going to be great for your diet. Because taste is king, we make Brussel Sprouts exciting!  Grilled or roasted with some garlic sauce and a drizzle of our premium oil? Yummy!

 

Pumpkin

As it is rich in vitamins and minerals yet low in calories, pumpkin is an excellent diet food. It is also full of beta-carotene which is a very important antioxidant.

Moreover, we combine this tasty seasonal orange with other low carb roots, a great way to add more nutrients at even lower calories and carbohydrates. For example, Celeriac or Celery Root is consider a super food ideal for hard dieters because it reduces stress levels and cravings.

Eating these two super healthy foods together, naturally raises your metabolism, therefore helping you burn fat. Just take a look at some of the nutrients these little wonder foods are full of:

  • Protein
  • Fibre
  • Magnesium
  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • Potassium
  • Folate
  • Amino Acids

 

Garlic

Rule #1 in our kitchen #healthy #prepmeals #fitfoodie #garlic

A post shared by fit (@fitbites_official) on

Not only does garlic enhance the flavour of almost every meal but it has excellent anti bacterial qualities which help to reduce cholesterol. DON’T worry! you won’t see chunks of it in our meals.

Garlic naturally suppresses your appetite! It’s components have strong hunger stoppers. The best thing is I personally can not think of one savoury dish that wouldn’t benefit from a little bit of garlic. Fresh garlic is a must in our meal preparation, and we use just a little but the health benefits  goes a long way.

Fix Hormone Madness and PCOS at FITBITES.CA

Hormone Madness or PCOS?

Hormone fluctuations occur naturally, such as in puberty, menstrual cycle and menopause. Hormone imbalance may also be caused by toxins or an unbalanced lifestyle. Trying to balance your hormones is a difficult task, and prescription pills might not work for you. If you ever had any hormonal imbalances, then you know it feels like life on an emotional roller coaster.  A lot of cases is due to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and hormonal imbalance.

-“My doctor told me I had Polycystic Ovary Syndrome  (PCOS)”  I hear this often, and is one of the real reasons why many woman have a hard time losing weight on a typical low calorie diet.  Many women might not even know the real reason to why they’re having such a hard time losing the extra pounds, and hormonal imbalances is usually he reason. Statistics show that between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 women of childbearing age has PCOS. As many as 5 million women in the United States and Canada may be affected. It can occur in girls as young as 11 years old.

What is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?

Is a health problem that can affect a woman’s:hormone-levels

Menstrual cycle and emotional stability
Fertility (Ability to have children)
Hormonal balance
Heart
Blood vessels
Appearance in body size and skin related problems.

 

Because there is no magic pill to shape up the hormonal profile of a women with imbalances, research has proven over time the importance of maintaining a balanced lifestyle that includes a low glycemic diet. 

 

What causes PCOS?

The cause of PCOS is unknown. But most experts think that several factors, including genetics, could play a role.  A main underlying problem with PCOS is a hormonal imbalance. In women with PCOS, the ovaries make more androgens than normal. Androgens are male hormones that females also make. High levels of these hormones affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation, and fertility becomes an issue when women are trying to conceive.

Researchers also think insulin may be linked to PCOS. Insulin is a hormone that controls the change of sugar, starches, and other food into energy for the body to use or store. Many women with PCOS have too much insulin in their bodies because they have problems using it. Excess insulin appears to increase production of androgen. Consult your doctor if you think the reason you have a hard time losing weight is your insulin.

Does lifestyle and nutrition practices make a difference after the diagnosis of PCOS?

Diet and lifestyle changes can favorably modify the conditions which prevents many women from losing weight. Regardless of any diagnosis or of the PCOS that affects only women; better diets and lifestyle increase fertility in both men and women, it betters health and increase fitness outcomes.

With early diagnosis and intervention one can modify the natural history of PCOS. By adopting a healthy, low-glycemic diet, controlling blood sugar, and maintaining a healthy body weight, those with PCOS can greatly reduce the risks of hormonal imbalances.
Studies show favorable metabolic effects in women with PCOS after adopting a moderately low carbohydrate diet (40% of total calories). Not only does this dietary strategy help improve the metabolic profile, but it also helps to decrease circulating testosterone levels.

Low-Carb High Fat diets Cures The Biggest Health Problems in The World

‘The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” -Thomas Edison

If I told you there was one diet that could cure practically any disease, from fatigue syndrome, depression, most digestive diseases, autoimmune disease, diabetes, heart disease,  and that it could help you lose weight quickly and easily without cravings, suffering, or deprivation, you might wonder if some of today’s doctors has gone crazy. Well Dr. Hyman   is one of them.

Dr. Mark Hyman, is the well known author of Eat Fat Get Thin, where he unveils the truth about how actually healthy unprocessed fats are the key to sustained weight loss and the pilar of health and well-being. Like our ancient philosopher, Hippocrates, he also says, “Good food is good medicine that can prevent, reverse, and even cure disease. Take away the bad food, put in the good food and magic happens”.

Low-carb diets, considered more as a lifestyle, is the kind of diet that can prevent most degenerative disease and with certain diet modifications to it, it is thought that it can even cure disease. In this later case, the KETO or ketogenic diet, where carbs are greatly substituted by natural healthy fats.  The ketogenic diet initially was developed in the 1920s in response to the observation that fasting had antiseizure properties [1]. During fasting, the body metabolizes fat stores via lipolysis and then the fatty acids undergo a complex process in the body’s chemistry to produce ketones bodies that later the cell can use as precursors to generate energy within the cells or better known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ketogenic diet, which is very high in fat and low in carbohydrates, is thought to simulate the metabolic effects of starvation by forcing the body to use primarily fat as a fuel source. This diet has been controversial for decades, they were originally demonized by fat-phobic health professionals and the media. Doctors made people believed that these diets would raise cholesterol and cause heart disease because of the high fat content. However… times are changing.

A research study from the National Institute of Health published the potential uses of ketogenic diet in various illnesses (clinical and laboratory studies). Check out here the list of illnesses treated with ketogenic diets.

Both diets, the Low-Carb diet and the KETO diets are best choices to lose weight, to improve health, performance and prevent disease. Here you can read some of the most common health problems and the 10 proven health benefits of low-carb and ketogenic diets.

Treatment is expensive and diabetes can cause other diseases that put a diabetic’s life at risk.  There is no medical cure for diabetes,  and medication for diabetes is highly costly and in most cases, diabetes is a life long condition once is diagnosed . The good news is that adulthood diabetes is highly preventable! 

Insulin is a costly medication for diabetics only.

Can we stop diabetes from developing?

Yes, because type 2 diabetes is largely preventable with diet. Type 2 diabetes used to be called adult onset diabetes, and is striking people at younger and younger ages with rates skyrocketing globally. About 9 cases in 10 could be avoided by taking this several simple steps:  Know how  type 2 diabetes develops, keep weight under control, exercise more, eat healthy on regular basis, and quit smoking. If you have pre diabetes, take this steps to stop progression. If you are healthy, always take these steps to never develop type 2 diabetes.

1.  Get involved to know how it develops.

Knowing how it develops can better assist us in preventing type 2 diabetes. Some conditions prevail before the development of type 2 diabetes. For example, our blood sugar levels, also called glucose level, change all the time when we eat and when we exercise. Usually, our body registers normal levels of blood sugar after a meal, but unhealthy foods can havoc our body capacity to control sugar levels in the blood. Conditions such as Hypoglycemia (low glucose levels makes us feel tired after a meal or after exercise), Hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels in blood -makes us feel irritable and could trigger headaches after a meal ), these are common signals. Also the belly fat around the waist can mean we have become Insulin resistance, which is the inability to produce hormones that help you burn fat. All these conditions are underlying causes of a very common condition called Metabolic Syndrome, setting ground for the development of Type 2 diabetes.

2. Prevention is always better than treatment. 

Prevention is always the best way to avoid diabetes. Later is too late and very expensive to treat.
Maintaining an adequate MBI (Body Mass Index) and a healthy fit lifestyle, is by far the best way to prevent the onsets of a Metabolic Syndrome and diabetes type 2. Eating regular healthy foods, such as meals and snacks, is an important part of a fit lifestyle. But what is healthy foods really?

Many times what we think is healthy is actually not so healthy. Products containing ingredients that can simulate our hormones can be detrimental, pesticides are greatly cancer causing, GMO have no conclusive scientific studies and the effect on human health is unclear;  on top of this, highly processed ingredients are usually toxic to our health; and therefore, all these are increasing our risk of developing many health problem, like diabetes.

FITBITES narrows down the possibility of getting these naughty ingredients into your daily meals. As you already know, we choose best quality meats, organic spices and peak season vegetable, that is why our featured ready meals are fast frozen.

When you need to control your blood sugar, a FITBITES Ready Meal is a perfect solution for anyone that is managing with pre-diabetes or has a established diabetes. A FITBITES Ready Meal is not a meal replacement, but a healthy wholesome meal with low GI in each meal to prevent spikes in insulin and maintain healthy levels of glucose  through out the day. It also prevents crashes and promotes better eating habits to re gain control of your insulin routine.

3. Don’t forget to be active.

diabetes-exerciseGet more exercise, and you’ll beat insulin resistance and better manage blood glucose, the key to preventing diabetes. Studies have also shown that the right exercises increases insulin sensitivity, meaning the carbs you eat are better transformed into energy for your muscles and for better performance. Better food choices, together with an appropriate exercise plan will provide you long-lasting blood sugar control.

While physical activity is important to lower blood sugar levels, eating daily the appropriate foods with the right macro nutrient ratio (see FITBITES nutritional information), is equally important to maintain good control of your blood glucose level.

Better Nutrition For Expecting Mothers

pregnancy-fitbitespicLife changes for women not only when she has children, but it changes from the very first moment she realizes, or not, she is pregnant. So true, that her mind is set into expectancy mode, and she finds herself planning for that special day when she welcomes her baby.

 

 

 

 

Planning For Pregnancy

If you plan for a healthy baby, and also for a healthy you, you’ll be able to cope better with all the physical demand of your new life. You would then want to make sure to eat balanced meals, clean ingredients in foods, with no toxins and no chemicals or pesticides.

Toxins in foods are typically found in processed packaged foods, as well as many chemicals that are added to prevent spoilage. Chemicals and pesticides in foods are typically found in most restaurant meals and some waters and in non organically grown vegetables. Ideally, you will have to choose the right ingredients to cook your daily meals, but if you are a busy mom to be, at FITBITES we make sure you get the right safe nutrition you and your baby need during and after pregnancy.

Considering that we shop, chop and cook all meals:

  • High in protein
  • Gluten free
  • Low in sodium and sugars
  • Made from scratch and with only organic local herbs

You can rest asure you will have all nutritional and non-nutritional requirements covered so you don’t have to watch what you eat to not gain excess weight, and keep you and your baby healthy. Safe time by not cooking and planning for healthy meals.

Your baby will be safe, healthy and develop better immunity at birth if you engage a healthy choice each time you eat. Also, the frequency at which you have each meal, is important to maintain good nutrition all throughout pregnancy and lower your risk of developing pregnancy related conditions such as anemia and gestational diabetes.

We provide Ready Meals with the right complex carbs and we specialize in carbohydrate, protein and fat counts to minimize any risk of developing anemia or gestational diabetes.

Why is FITBITES Ready Meals perfect for moms?

Aside from helping you keep a healthy weight during pregnancy, you and your baby will be nutritionally nourished, and you will lose weight easily after baby is born. We do this by combining our three different lifestyles to adapt to your changing situation, during and after pregnancy, so you and your baby can get the best and enjoy more time together.

Depending on your progressive weight gain during pregnancy, we would recommend our Slender or Active Lifestyle.  Talk to your obstetrician to know your ideal weight gain during pregnancy. Post par-tum  is very demanding, and usually calorie intake should increase during your lactating months, if you plan to do so. During lactation, you can try our Extreme lifestyle since these Ready Meals are higher in carbs, which are needed for energy and breast milk production.

Why a high protein meal is better for you and your baby

Each of our meals are high in protein (never less than 40 grams). When an expectant mother’s diet does not include enough protein, it can lead to a number of health problems in both the mother and the developing baby. A protein deficient diet during pregnancy can make the expectant mother feel weak or light-headed and make it difficult to manage day-to-day tasks without feeling tired or fatigued. For the developing baby, the effects of a lack of protein in the diet include poor muscle and joint development, poor bone development, muscle or bone deformities, miscarriage, brain damage and a high risk of birth defects.

Slow cooked and minimally processed meals are better to have during pregnancy

All of our meals are made from scratch with our in home made sauces. We never use processed foods and never over cook meats which might produce dangerous sodium nitrate. Aside from their carcinogenic potential, nitrates developed from high heat cooking, represent a risk to pregnant moms and babies because of their potential for reacting with the protein hemoglobin that delivers oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. When nitrates become nitrites and react with hemoglobin, they produce modified proteins called methemoglobins, explained better by a medical doctor. These don’t deliver oxygen as effectively, which is of particular concern if you’re pregnant, since your baby depends upon your hemoglobin to deliver oxygen to the placenta.
