To counteract the increase in levels of glucose in the blood, attention must be paid to the glycemic indices of foods. Obviously, one must try to avoid those with a high index glycemic and prefer those with a low glycemic index. The glycemic index (GI) is the ability of carbohydrates contained in foods to raise blood sugar.
These foods they are responsible for the rapid rise in glucose. There are also foods that can slow down the absorption of glucose in the intestine and keep blood sugar constant for long periods, such as water-soluble fibers.
Per lower the glycemic index of any food just take it together with proteins.
Glucose alarm: everyone eats it but in reality it is very bad for the body
When you are in a hurry in the morning and unable to have breakfast or simply to spend time with a few friends, you often prefer to Breakfast the bar. Obviously these breakfasts can be made once in a while, not always, because they are bad. Eating, for example, brioche or croissant for breakfast leads to a significant increase in blood sugar. The brioche has a glycemic index of 70 and therefore can be considered high.
While the glycemic index takes quality into account, the glycemic load takes into account both quality and quantity. In fact the latter is calculated by multiplying the amount of carbohydrates present in 100 grams of food, for its glycemic indexdivided by 100. In this case, the brioche has a glycemic load of 45.99.
The Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and having a balanced meal is essential for everyone, but especially for diabetics. Our metabolism during the day varies, so the same food consumed in the morning can have a different impact on blood sugar in the evening.
A hearty but healthy breakfast reduces the sense of hunger, affects the total energy supply and helps the body to reduce blood lipids and improve insulin sensitivity.
Among foods recommended for diabetics, we certainly find the egg, even if egg white or egg white is better. Lean meats, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, turkey or chicken ham, milk, beans, cheeses, avocado, whole grains such as oatmeal and dried fruit such as nuts.
