Wednesdays’ target is to regulate your blood sugar levels.
How? First of all, drizzle your meals with 1-2 tbsp lemon juice, or mix lemon juice and zest into your cooking. Like vinegar, lemon helps break sugar down gradually into the bloodstream. To get your blood sugar under control, eat protein at every meal (protein delays the breakdown of carbs and fat), eat at regular intervals, don’t skip breakfast and opt for low-GI foods whenever you can (rice, wholemeal bread and pulses) as well as high-fibre foods (fruit, veg and all things whole grain).
