In brief: Diet ; Exercise

This depends on whether you are diabetic or have Insulin resistance.
Assuming you are in good health, eating lean protein and low glycemic carbohydrates in small portions together with exercise are key to maintaining stable blood sugar levels.

In brief: Diet and exercise

Eating a well balanced diet with a low glycemic index and regular aerobic exercise will help in keeping glucose in the normal range.
If you have pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome or are overweight, it is imperative to loose weight.

Your body normally regulates glucose during periods of eating and fasting. Insulin goes up in response to food and keeps glu normal. Glucagon goes up during fasting so that you do not become hypoglycemic. With obesity/prediabetes, you become insulin resistant so that the insulin does not work as well.
