Some foods spike and crash your blood glucose and hence reduce your metabolic score. This doesn’t necessarily mean that these foods are bad and need to be avoided.

Ways to optimise your glucose spike

  1. Get Movin’: Go for a walk or do light physical activity to help dispose of excess glucose post-spike.
  2. Portion control: In case you ate a large portion of the meal, try with a slightly reduced portion size next time.
  3. Food sequence: Eat fibres, fats, proteins, carbs, and simple sugars in this order. This creates a hypercompensation effect and helps improve your response to meals.
