how to control blood sugar?

does it help to exercise before or after high glycemic foods? what about combining certain fats (which ones) or fiber (soluble or insoluble) with the high glycemic foods?

But if you're stressing over it... how about not eating high glycemic foods?

ok, maybe â€œextremeâ€? isn't the right word but you know what i meant.
well anyways, just because i'm not a diebetic, doesn't mean i shouldn't be concerned about blood-sugar levels. and my question was how to control blood-sugar levels when eating high glycemic foods, so it doesnâ€™t help to just say donâ€™t eat those foods.

I have been taking it for a couple of months but haven't felt it has helped a great deal with my acne, but I'm going to continue taking it until the bottle runs out.

Substitute low-index sugars like fructose for high ones like glucose or sucrose (although there _may_ be other unrelated reasons arguing against the use of fructose).
Soluble fiber (but NOT insoluble fiber) slows the absorption of carbohydrates. Know what specific kinds of fiber are in the foods you eat, and their relative advantages and disadvantages!
Vinegar taken before a high-carb meal has been shown to slow the absorption of sugar and improve the insulin response. Here's a scan of a recent small study that was published in a medical journal:

A normal persons blood sugar level should be 4.5 to 5 but after eating can go up to about 11 and starts to come down with in 1 hour of eating, above 11 or below 4 and there’s trouble.
Bryan is right, you can keep it steady by eating 5 small meals aday.
