Your body’s preferred source of energy is carbs (sugar is the simplest form of carbs) so when carbs are available the body uses those first for energy, and the extra are stored as fat.
Now that I have given a short rundown on blood glucose, I want to mention that having consistently high blood sugar (usually as a result of eating too much sugar or simple carbs like white flour) can lead to type 2 diabetes.
Believe me, I am one of the biggest sugar lovers, and I know it can sound daunting to even think about reducing or eliminating sugar from your life. There are a lot of other significant effects sugar has on your body and it’s functions beyond blood sugar. Subjects maintain normal blood sugar levels after eating IsaLean Bars (Chocolate Decadence and Lemon Passion Crunch flavors). Fans of Isagenix IsaLean® Bars will find enjoying them all the sweeter now that a new study has shown that eating them won’t spike blood sugar levels. Whether customers have preference for Lemon Passion Crunch or Chocolate Decadence flavors, they can rest assured with clinical findings showing that both meal-replacement bars maintain normal levels of plasma glucose and have a statistically significantly lower glycemic effect when compared to standard controls. In the study, Brigham Young University researchers tested blood glucose response for each of the bars and white bread (standard control) in 11 adult subjects (five men and six women)—for this type of testing, experimentation is typically performed on 10 or more subjects with standard protocols. The scientists took blood samples  before subjects ate the test food and then at 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes after eating.
These results came from healthy men and women and are not applicable to people with type 2 diabetes, who should continue to monitor blood sugar with any food eaten. Meal-replacement bars have gained popularity as a convenient way to assist in weight management. IsaLean Bars represent a convenient, high-protein meal replacement designed to meet weight management and nutrition goals.
The bars are high in whey protein, offer a balanced amount of fats and carbohydrates, and provide daily requirements of vitamins and minerals.


The high-protein bars also present multiple benefits because of impact on satiety as well as muscle protein synthesis—aiding weight management and helping to maintain or increase muscle mass with age. World Health Organization statistics show more than 1 billion people are overweight and at least 300 million of those are clinically obese.

Eating anything, actually, raises your blood sugar, but as sugar is much easier for your body to convert into glucose (the form that is used as fuel for all of your cells), it has a much more immediate and spiking effect.
Again, because sugar is a “simple carb” it can be easily broken down to glucose therefore causing a quicker spike in your blood sugar after consumption, meaning the insulin is working hard to get rid of it (usually storing it as fat). Type 2 diabetes seems so common these days that I think people don’t take it seriously enough. And I am not necessarily suggesting you do that right this second, but I think being aware of how foods like sugar can effect not only your weight but also your overall well-being is really important. Don’t despair; I will be addressing the sugar issue again next week and certainly much more in the future. Eating foods balanced in protein, fats, fiber and complex carbohydrates are considered a better approach to maintain blood sugar levels (1 & 2). Each participant acted as his or her own control by testing the bread and the bars in a random order.


The health-food bar market reached $5 billion in 2010 and retail sales are predicted to increase 10 percent per year over the next five years. The combination of carbohydrates doesn’t lead to elevated blood glucose levels, as the BYU study has shown.
In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that more than one third of adults (more than 72 million people), and, sadly, roughly one out of every seven children are obese.

When your blood sugar is raised, your pancreas excretes insulin (which is a hormone in case you were wondering). The backup fuel in the body is fat so when you do not consume an excess of carbohydrates, your body uses stored fat or the fat you consume for fuel.

In short, eating a lot of sugar can lead your body to store more fat and hinder it from burning fat. If your body isn’t able to regulate it anymore (which is what happens with type 2 diabetes) it can lead to some really serious health problems, so your best option is eating healthy to avoid the whole mess altogether.
The insulin acts as sort of a housekeeper by taking the glucose and delivering it to the cells that need it to function and storing the rest as fat.
