The right diet and diabetic recipes play an important role in keeping blood sugar levels under control
India is fast becoming the diabetes capital of the world with 69.1 million cases reported, the second-highest number in the world, according to the HealthifyMe Blog. Keeping diabetes under control is essential to living a long and healthy life. The right diet and diabetic recipes play an extremely important role in keeping blood sugar levels under control.
Diabetics must include a lot of low glycemic index foods – those that lead to a steady rise in the level of glucose in the blood and a gentle rise in insulin – in their diet. Choose foods that are low in fat and calories and high in fiber and proteins. Moderation is key; eat everything in moderate quantities and try to include lots of vegetables in your diet to increase the fiber content. The fiber slows the release of glucose into the bloodstream, preventing blood sugar spikes that worsen blood sugar control and make you feel hungry.
That said, low-carb, low-sugar meals don’t have to be boring. Try these five recipes and you’ll see.
