The Sugar Solution Diet
Overview of The Sugar Solution Diet
The Sugar Solution diet teaches individuals how to eat more of the foods that work naturally to keep blood sugar levels balanced. The diet offers daily meal plans, shopping lists, and fitness routines that work to achieve maximum results. The diet is based on three core health principles: good nutrition, regular physical activity, and stress management. Additionally, you will eat six times a day (including snacks), which helps stave off hunger pangs and keeps blood sugar levels balanced. 1,200 to 1,800 calories a day are allowed and include 50-60 percent carbohydrate, 15-25 percent protein, and 25-30 percent fat.
