Today . . . we continue with some of the most "harmful" foods for "diabetes".
And that would be . . .
Fruit . . . due to being "high" in natural "sugars" . . . that can "spike" blood sugar levels.
Dried fruit . . . same reason
Fruit flavored yogurts . . . same reason
Fruit juices . . . these are "concentrated" and "concentrated" means "HIGH SUGAR"
Sugar-sweetened beverages . . . like sweet tea or lemonades
Vegetables . . . like potatoes . . . due to being a "starchy food" . . . again "spiking" blood sugar levels. Other veggies to "avoid" would be . . . corn, peas and butternut squash . . . all due to "spiking" blood sugar levels.
Trans-fats . . . like margarine, peanut butter, any other spreads, creams, French fries or frozen dinners.
Packaged snacks . . . including crackers or any baked goods like muffins, cakes, cookies etc. . . due to being "inflammatory" food and "spiking" blood sugar.
White bread, white rice or pastas . . . due to being high "starch" and therefore spiking blood sugar levels. Plus, many of them contain sugar
Sweetened breakfast cereals . . . due to sweeteners added and grains containing "lectins" and "starch" . . . all "inflammatory" foods
High-fat cut meats . . . like ribs, pork, bacon or poultry with skin . . . "inflammatory" foods
Fried "anything" . . . like fried meat, deep-fried fish and deep-fried tofu
All soft cheeses . . . with hard cheese "limited" (hard cheese is cheese that crumbles and breaks apart)
All honey, agave nectar and maple syrup . . . except Manuka honey "limited" . . . due to sugar content.
Flavored coffee drinks . . . due to containing "sugar"
And finally . . . "alcohol" . . . while moderate amounts of alcohol can cause blood sugar to "rise" . . . excess alcohol can actually "decrease" blood sugar levels . . . causing it to "drop" into dangerously low levels . . . especially for people with type 1 diabetes. With beer and wine containing carbohydrates that can raise blood sugar.
And tomorrow, we'll talk about a "superfood" that can help with "diabetes"
