Sugar Surfing Lesson #17: Shift happens

   As I write in the book “Sugar Surfing™”, blood glucose levels in healthy people are never truly static (at least not for very long). The ebb and flow of blood sugar reflects the natural shifting which occurs in response to the immediate metabolic needs of the human body. Glucose (blood sugar) is a high energy fuel for tissues. Activity, stress, digestion and fasting are some of the forces which affect the minute to minute level of useable energy (e.g., glucose) circulating in our bloodstream.
