BLOOD SUGAR DOES NOT TAKE VACATION
8 Tips to keep blood sugar controlled
1. If you spend a day outdoors (on the beach or a picnic), prepare to bag some fresh fruits like tail-tion. You can also bring salad with 2 tbsp. sunflower seeds or sesame already incorporated in the container.
2 Do not forget to hydrate. To achieve this, always carry bottled water, soda, flavored water light, soft light and light fruit juices.
3 If expected at the place you are visiting may not have kiosks or restaurants nearby, and know it will stay until snack time, I opt to prepare a sandwich of bread Arabic type with low fat cheese, lettuce and tomato.
4 Do not forget that a handful of dried fruit with low fat yogurt you can get or take in a small cooler is another good choice to avoid spending many hours without eating.
5 If the resort goes out to eat, choosing the menu prepared think about what to eat if you were at home, and always include some vegetable on your plate, either raw or cooked.
6 During the holiday is likely to forget the hectic work and to give a break to clear his watch routine. No bugle that mistake with your blood sugar: take the watch even in the bag or have someone alert you at a certain time to measure glucose and / or eating some food.
7 Measuring kits for blood glucose to be controlled much easier while traveling, hiking or sunbathing.
8 Believe it or not, being on vacation is possible to do more physical activity than usual for simple and long walks often traveling to new places or walking in the sun or at sunset on the beach. As this may affect your blood sugar, it is essential to take a measurement after a long activity. If, however, the rest is rather sedentary activity level is reduced, must redouble the effort and beat the lazy. Remember that physical activity helps control your diabetes.
