You’ve probably seen broccoli on a great many lists of foods you should eat for a number of reasons. Well, they’re all right! Broccoli is a great food — especially if you’re dealing with out-of-control blood sugar levels.
Think of the hormone insulin as your fat storage hormone. When it’s running smoothly, your blood sugar levels stay in check, you feel hungry less often, and you’re much less likely to gain fat through the belly area. Eating lots of broccoli, along with other vegetables, is a great way to bring balance to this all-important hormone.
Eat: Because broccoli is low in calories, you really never have to worry about eating too much. Enjoy raw, lightly steamed, or roasted.
