These days people are used to monitoring their heart rate and follow their physical activity using smart watches and fitness trackers. However, key metric for health – blood glucose – is usually only measured when already facing severe issues with health. Interestingly, blood glucose affects not only our weight but also how energetic we feel during the day, and how well we are able to perform our daily activities.
When we are in a hurry, it is easier to grab a processed lunch from supermarket rather than prepare a healthy meal from scratch. Sometimes we forget or skip the meal which leads to snacking and overeating. This is not healthy in the long run. Consequently, blood sugar levels go up and down. The excess glucose is converted into fat. The number of overweight people exceeds over one third of the whole population. Overweight is known to cause several chronic diseases like type II diabetes and cardiovascular problems.
