Among all the nutrients, carbohydrates are present abundantly in a lot of foods such as rice, pasta. When carbohydrates are digested, energy is delivered as glucose which enters blood stream easily and quickly, raising the blood sugar level. Thus, the easiest way to keep blood sugar level low is to avoid carbohydrates. But avoidance or inadequate intake may impair one’s ability to carry out routine activities as the onset of hunger, fatigue, sweat, mood swings and a rapid heartbeat.
To ensure a stable blood sugar level, one has to be vigilant by checking his level constantly to decide if more or less carbohydrates can be consumer. This process is both cumbersome and tedious and leaves one feeling depressed.
Carbohydrates or carbs are almost seen as a ‘dirty’ word for the health-conscious people. Fortunately, this is not true. We need carbohydrates to survive or live healthily.
Unfortunately, many don’t know that there are different types of carbs. The types of carbs you consume make a lot differences! In fact, most people do not consume enough of certain types of carbs, such as dietary fibre in their diet. The lack of it is the real culprit for many health issues such as diabetes and obesity.
Carbs is the most readily available nutrient for our body as it is converted to glucose quickly so that it can be used by the body to carry out its activities. The downside of this nutrient (as compared to others such as protein and fat) is that they can’t be stored in the body for long. Unused glucose drives up blood sugar level which is then converted into fats. High blood sugar level becomes detrimental when our body is unable to regulate it - that’s how diabetes is developed.
Besides medication, what can a diabetic person do to minimize complications from diabetes?
The answer is to take the right food. Food, carbohydrates in particular, plays a decisive role in managing diabetes risks. Being overweight increases the risk of a person becoming diabetic by multi-folds. You don’t want to eat too much carbs and have them converted into fats that deface your waist. If you are already diabetic or are concerned about having elevated blood sugar level, you want to take the right food that helps to stablise your blood sugar level.
Take the right food that contains carbohydrates which don’t get converted into fats in your body.
We bring you a special meal that contains limited carbohydrates. It comes with a fibre complex coupled with rich Antioxidants, Omega-3 and minerals. In fact, this meal has the precise proportion of all these nutrients that can deliver an impact that is much bigger than their sum.
The right food is one which can regulate the release of glucose – sugar and make it available slowly for a longer period of time. This release pattern is measured by Glycemic Index (GI). A GI of 100 represents pure glucose which can be used by our body straight away. A lower GI indicates that a longer time is needed to make the glucose available for our body.
Consuming more Low GI food is now recognized as a sustainable pathway to combat obesity and achieve stable blood sugar levels for a longer time.
