      What is Blood Sugar?
Blood Sugar is the form of Glucose
within the blood stream

The Concentration of glucose in the
blood is measured in milligrams of
glucose per 100 milliliters of blood

Stable blood sugar is when it remains
between 80mg/dl & 120mg/dl
  Mg – milligrams
  Dl – deciliter
    Why does BS need to be Stable?

Glucose fuels our Nervous System

Glucose creates the bulk of our
Bodies energy source ATP

ATP fuels every movement, every
heartbeat and every breath you take
 How does your Body keep BS Stable?

Your Endocrine System is a system of
glands that produce hormones to regulate
your body
Your Pancreas is your blood sugar
regulator, produces two main hormones
  Glucagon – Raises Blood Sugar
  Insulin – Lowers Blood Sugar
3 Blood Sugar states your body can
be in:
  Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Sugar)
  Hyperglycemia (High Blood Sugar)
  Stable Blood Sugar
  How Do YOU keep your BS Stable?

Meal Intervals
  Eat Every 3-4 Hours
Nutrient Ratios
  Protein – Amino Acids (nitrogen)
  Carbohydrates – Glucose
  Fat – Fatty Acids
Calories Per Meal
  Depends on individuals’ genetics, past
  history, activity and goals
  Not Calories Per Day
  Body is a feed as it goes machine
Hypoglycemia
Hyperglycemia
Stable Blood Sugar
When Blood Sugar is Stable
  How are Health Goals Permanently Achieved with Stable BS?



Reprogram Set Point and
Metabolism
Continual Release of Stored Body
Fat
  Every Pound of Fat has 3500 stored
  Calories
Frequent balanced meals prevent
hypoglycemia and muscle loss
  Every pound of muscle approximately
  burns 30-50 calories per day
Adequate Protein Intake
  Creates an anabolic environment in the
Set Point
   Additional Benefits of Stable BS

Besides Fat & Wt Loss…..
Eliminate Sugar Cravings
  Physiological Cravings
  Psychological Cravings
Sustained Energy
Mental Alertness
Increase of Lean Body Mass
Lower Stress Levels
Higher Quality of Life
     How to Monitor Blood Sugar?

Blood Test
   Fasting Blood Glucose
     Ideal Below 90 mg/dl
   A1C – 2-3 month average of fasting glucose
     Ideal below 5.0%
Glucose Monitor
Appetite
   Before Meal
     Very Hungry, Hungry, Not Hungry
   After Meal
      Still Hungry, Satisfied, Full
Energy
   High, Medium, Low
 Blood Sugar Medical Challenges ?

Diabetes
 Type 1
   Insulin Dependent
 Type 11
   Non-Insulin Dependent
Insulin Resistance
Hypoglycemia
  What Determines Calories & Ratios

No Formula is 100% Accurate, VN’s
comes very close
50% Equation:
 Based on BMI
 If Body Fat % is present – LBM
 Formula
    More Accurate, takes into account the
    LBM of an individual
50% Equation – VN Formula :
 Calories Per Day, Protein Per Day,
 Meal Intervals, Exercise Per Day,
 Exercise History
               Female Calories

Always Better Eating More Meals than
more Calories Per Meal
If Goal is:
  Lose Body Fat & Weight/Tone Up
  Maintain
     250 Calories Per Meal
     300 Calories Per Meal if more than 5
     hours of cardio per week or do 7 Meals at
     250 Calories Per Day
If Goal is :
  Gain Weight/Increase Strength/Build Muscle
  Mass
    350 Calories Per Meal
                  Male Calories

Always Better Eating More Meals than more Calories
Per Meal
If Goal is:
    Lose Body Fat & Weight/Tone Up
    Maintain
       350 Calories Per Meal (Kids 11 and Under)
       400 Calories Per Meal
       450 Calories Per Meal if more than 5 hours of
       cardio per week or do 7 Meals at 400 Calories Per
       Day
If Goal is :
    Gain Weight/Increase Strength/Build Muscle Mass
       500 Calories Per Meal
       550 Calories Per Meal depending on metabolism
              Protein Grams

Remember to focus only on COMPLETE
Protein per meal

Incomplete protein does not count as protein,
the calories do count from incomplete protein

Complete Protein has been proven to better
assist with blood sugar stabilization
