When planning your diet, you should consider the glycemic index (GI) of foods. This is a ratio that shows the rate at which carbohydrates contained in foods are digested and increase blood sugar levels. That is, a high GI provokes an increase in blood sugar. And we are not necessarily talking about desserts, sweet fruits, warned the endocrinologist, nutritionist Oksana Mikhaleva.
“Regular consumption of high GI foods disrupts metabolism, provokes hunger and activates fat gain,” the specialist said in an interview with the agency. “Prime”.
Corn flakes, chocolate, sodas, chips, sweet pastries, dumplings, white bread – all these foods have a high GI, and therefore they should be eaten with caution. In diabetes, many of them are completely contraindicated. In addition, a number of side dishes provoke a sharp increase in blood sugar. Among them: white rice (and rice noodles), potatoes (especially mashed potatoes), carrots.
As a result of the use of fast carbohydrates (the same instant rice), blood viscosity increases and blood pressure rises, Anna Korenevich, a cardiologist, candidate of medical sciences, warned earlier.
To prevent pressure surges and sugar, the doctor advised “to switch to brown rice.” “It is very useful, although not as tasty as white, of course,” Korenevich agreed.
